"That wouldn't be a good idea." Cai says flatly, with a not-so-subtle tinge of irritation to her voice. "Do you not understand that that library is home to centuries worth of knowledge that is indispensable to scholars?"

With an annoyed sigh, she adds, "You sound like you've never dealt with possessed books before."

Calming down, she concludes, "Even if they did an investigation, how would we know, shy of scrying on it? For all we know, they may have."

Bel: Possessed books? Yes. A giant library where each and every one of those books are possessed? No. I wouldn't mind looking for powerful spellbooks in there either but that knowledge is no good to anyone in that state. Not to mention that if you take out whatever's possessing them, the book burns either way.

If we knew the source of it, however...

Bel scratches his chin for a bit.

Bel: Maybe it's none of our business, though. I'm just bored. That said, I wouldn't mind trying to solve it.

"I don't know if that's a good idea though," Caionna says with a tinge of trepidation, "The affairs of other worlds aren't really for us to intervene in. Zarik took you on that quest for his selfish gain."

With hesitation, she remits, "Sure, we're adventurers of some repute in that world, but it's not our place anymore. We can't go doing whatever we please."

To those with heightened hearing, a faint crackling can be heard coming from the woman's left ear, followed by a man's voice fraught with irritation, 'What do you mean selfish? I didn't realize trying to follow a lead to find my friend was selfish!'

Holding her index and middle fingers up to the device in her ear, she says, "Oh come on, Zarik! We both know the chances of him being on such a dangerous quest is highly unlikely. Aren is a coward, you know that!" With am exasperated sigh, she says, "Why don't you come inside and talk to us in person instead of screeching over the link pearl? You can't be so busy you can't socialize a bit!"

Before Zarik can retort, she removes the device from her ear and powers it off. "He'll either come in from the workshop to talk, or he can be stuck up!" She then trails off, mutteringto herself.

Bel rests his cheek on his left fist upon hearing the conversation.

Bel: How nice. Leave it to Zarik to turn foul moods up to 11. Any second now I bet he'll come whining about trying to rebuild that monstrosity of a guard that we destroyed some time ago.

The mage suddenly snickers a bit.

Bel: Heh. I wonder if it's possible to invent a good mood for him.

"I think Zarik just has some anger he needs to work out." Caionna says at length, "It's hard to really pin down what his problem really is. It probably boils down to what happened when we were children."

Scratching her face thoughtfully, she adds, "Comparatively speaking... Considering our heritage and age, I suppose you could argue that we still are children. Dragon lifespans are weird."

With a shrug, she dismisses the thought, and goes back to her book. To the unperceptive visitors, she appears to be no different than a young human woman, after all.

Bakk slowly sipped the wine, mulling on what Caionna said. Dragon lifespans were indeed weird. In his experience, their very different perceptions on the passage of time could lead to very unusual goals and motivations.

"The young have no shortage of...imagination" Bakk says, taking note of Caionna's book. "So tell me, Caionna...what is it that keeps you going in a place like this?"

Thoughtfully flicking the corners or her book, Caionna mulls the Kobold's question over for several minutes. "That's a pretty tough question, frankly, Bakk." She says with pause, "I suppose it's because this is supposed to be my own world to build and mold to my every desire. Although, it seems awfully strange that despite the length of time this world has existed, and the amount of aether it feels like it is taking from me, it doesn't seem to be expanding at all beyond this building and the valley it's in."

Yawning, she adds, "The exertion also makes me very tired. Far more tired than I feel it ought to be."

Bel: Hmm. Is there something else draining your power? Also, would it help to mitigate it if I was to share my own? I'm not using it for anything else while we're stting around here, anyway.

Bel takes out a thick book out of his robe while waiting for an answer. Upon a closer inspection, it'd reveal that it's a book about magical artifacts.

"Tired?" Bakk wonders aloud. "Or do I detect a bit of boredom as well?"

Bakk's attention is suddenly grabbed by Bel's book on magical artifacts. It is commonly understood that many kobolds have an affinity for the shiny trinkets of the world, and Bakk would be reluctant to admit this trait in himself. He couldn't help but be curious...

"Where I come from, goals and their pursuit can easily cure boredom," said Bakk. "and the right sort of treasure can cure many other things. Isn't that right, Bel?"

Caionna shakes her head, and replies, "No. Not boredom. This is very taxing work, even though it appears that all I'm doing is sitting here." Turning to Bel, she adds, "I would rather do this on my own. I appreciate the offer, but This is my burden to bear. I don't know if there's something else sapping my power. That doesn't seem likely to me"

She adjusts herself in her seat, as if to resume reading. She doesn't get as far as opening its pages before her eyes close and her head dips softly. She appears to have fallen asleep while sitting upright.

Zissou finally pipes up from his seat on a nearby sofa, "Perhaps you may be onto something about a siphon on her." He postulates, scratching his snout, "It could also be that a dragon of her age and heritage could be going through a transformation. It is difficult to tell at this moment."

Getting up from his seat to stretch, he further posits, "I admit, my knowledge on her clan is sparse, at best. They are surprisingly secretive, especially for dragonfolk. But what I do know, based on other clans of dragons that possess a similar metamorphosis, she should be absorbing aether, not abating it."

Bel notices Caionna nodding off and looks at her while scratching his chin with his right thumb. (That bad, huh?)

Bel: Hmm. Yeah, I'm not trying to pry or anything but are there any of her clan still around? Aside from Smiley, I mean.

And regarding aether absorption, maybe that's why this realm hasn't grown more?

Bel turns to Bakk to adress his question next.

Bel: I'm not doing what I do out of boredom. Even though sitting here doesn't do much to prevent it. I feel as if I should be more powerful, but isn't for some reason. That's why I try to look for potential ways to get stronger. Not doing it for power alone, though. That sort of obsession is foolish.

Zissou clears his throat with a tone of appallment laid heavily, "Have you forgotten so soon that she stated this realm's seed was a gift from her mother?"

Narrowing his eyes, he turns away, his finger resting quizzically on his snout. After a moment, of incoherent muttering to himself, he adds at length, "Upon reflection, it does seem strange that her mother would grant a boon such as this. It is curious due to the way that the clan ousted Caionna and Zarik for being half-breeds. Otherwise abandoned, to be raised by their father's village that was nearby."

As he pontificates, his gaze narrows under an ever furrowing brow.

Suddenly, the door to the tavern bursts open with a thunderous bang of the door against the wall. Through the door, steps a man clad in black armor, carrying an intimidating zweihander.

The sudden loud noise spooks Caionna awake with a timid yelp. She falls off her stool and lands on the floor with a soft thud, unable to catch herself before toppling.

The armored man speaks, the voice masked by the closed visor, "I think you may be onto something, old man." the timbre of the voice is oddly familiar, despite being muffled.

(Now there's a subtle way of opening doors.) Bel turns towards the new visitor.

Bel: Are you trying to knock the door off its hinges? A little harder and it might go all the way through the wall too.

Bel pours himself a glass of wine at the bar while waiting for an eventual response.
