Don't get any naughty ideas while I'm bathing in the Pool of Eternal Morality. Got it!?!
Greetings. I am Mililani Deccubus and I am a curator of rare magical items. I own a shop located in the thread called the Bazaar of the Bizarre. I have a question to ask of both gamers, players and dungoen masters, of adventurers and planar voyagers alike. If you were a lich, newly reborn or of ancient intelligence, what object, be mundane or exotic, would you use to house the soul of a lich. What object would you use as a phylactery. And yes, you may be creative and magical, but not asinine. I'm interested in gathering and publishing a forbidden work.
Business is brisk for the intrepid merchant. Orders and personal requests for elemental wards and likewise magical trinkets are flowing into her shop along with gold coins and gemstones. The pace is breathtaking.
Mililani will have enough capital to expand her business into a larger warehouse and possibily hire two or three apprentises to aid her in future endevors. Business is looking good for the wyaward elf-maiden.
"Then I bid a good journey," she says. "Feel free to return when you need something special. I shall be here."
With that, she approaches a moon elf. He is a tall handsome young male who under no enchantment enters her shop seeking historical inquiries about a discrete suit of armor. she leaves the young girl and her grandfather to help her next customer.
Mililani smiles at the young girl's brief merriment. "Perhaps the spell I am working on can help you? It is a divination that collects events and words on the wind and air."
"That I shall." She closes the case containing the star and hands it graciously to the young girl. "If I come across more, I shall notify you by my call sign. It is two blue-hued star sapphire-shaped butterflies."
"Ah, well, that is easy enough to accomplish then, miss. If you would be so kind as to provide the vials? Two, you say?"
Mililani rings forth a semi-unseen servant with a small bell. It brings with it two vials in a velvet case, both corked and sealed with bee's wax. It also carries a set of wind chimes. They make no sound or clang together as the servant sets them upon a sturdy stand.
"The chimes are enchanted to collect wind and air circulation, albeit in small portions. Blow upon the chimes and it will magically transfer the air into the vials for you."
Mililani chuckles and her eyes shine. "Please great sire, judge me not by my words. I mean you no ill will or harm. I need the essense of an air elemtnal, or the air moved on the wind by an air elemental. No more, no less."

I'll be on-line for an hour-an-a-half. Then it's back to the grind. Good news is I don't work until tomorrow night. So I'm free in the mornings and the afternoon.
"I need the essense of an air elemental, 2 vials, both bottled and sealed. I have a client who is interested in acquiring rare spell components."
"That's a special star," she says, "rare and unique, perhaps your parents and grandsire can barter something in its place?"
Mililani nods and smiles. The women haggle a bit then agree to a price. "Thank you," she says. "Something tells me this piece of jewelry was meant for you."
Motioning with her hand, palm up, she says, "please be my guest."
When Allura holds the locket is feels wet but warm and soothing live a tropical pond.
"It augments the power of one's voice for a variety of effects, but I can seem to activate however. MY divinations can not penetrate the wards placed upon it."
"I noticed you're a woman of refinement. I offer this beneficial trinket for sale."
Mililani gestures with her hand and displays a sapphire studded necklace, a chocker, if best described. The chocker itself is studded with a single blue sapphire in its center.
"It is a magical wonder and an item of song and the sea, manufactured by a lost sea-kingdom called Nimbral."

With her work finished, Mililani approaches the elven woman respectfully, but judging her dress and mannerisms, she must be a woman of formal bearing.
"It pleases me to have in my shop. How may I be of service?"
Not a problem, let me know when you're ready. I have three other posts I need to answer.
Well, I'm off to bed. Did the graveyard shift last night and my brain is slowly curdling. If you want to see what else I've been doing, check out the the current postings on the Angry Jack Cult. Nighty, Nighty. I'll be up in seven to eight hours.
I still have one more thing to do before they leave the store. It involves the purchase of another item, something I want to detail in postings.

Concentrating, she motions her hand over the scrying glass
"Yes, I have a few such crystals in stock. One of each I believe."
Her attention turns briefly to the elven women that has just entered her store. Then it goes back to the dalesman.
"Well, we were wondering if you happened to carry any augment crystals, and I was hoping you might carry a bracelet of friends? Hmmm, and healing potions wouldn't hurt either."
"I always have healing potions in stock but let's see what my scrying glass says shall we."
Moving to the front counter, she gestures her fingers across a flat surface, then again her with slender hand but just an inch above the colorless silicate.
"A braclet of friends, that will take some time but the augment crystals. Yes, I have them. What color or gemstone are you looking for?"
What book, if any, holds info on a braclet of friends. That's one to quirk my curiosity."
The proprietress smiles in return.
Before you stands a half-elven woman, draped in a hodge-podge of colorful garments, scarves, and golden trinkets. Colorful as her sapphire blue eyes and her tresses of ebon long hair, she faces the Dalesman and Allura with rosy cheeks of delight.
"Customers. what a pleasure to meet you. How may I serve you."

Took longer than expected. I work graveyard tonight and will be home at 6:30/7:00 AM PST. I will post tonight and you can pick up the storyline then and there.
As shoppers and customers pass by, they see a modest tiled shop staffed by a half-elven woman with long full hair and bright sapphire blue eyes. Outside, there is a hanging wood banner it reads:
Mililani Deccubus - Herbalist, Alchemist, Potion Brewer
This sign's background displays the butterfly, the holy symbol of Desna.
