Guilds were not the only thing that the city of Arbolia had to offer. As it was a place that many an adventurer looked to start their journeys in, businesses of all kinds that dealt in supplying these adventurers sprung up like weeds as well. The group would be directed to one such place from their quest form. They were to visit an apothecary known as "Cosmic Fire," an odd one at that, to help them forage ingredients for a new recipe the owner was coming up with. Even with directions, the being among the crowd of other shops and buildings, it might've proven difficult to fight. However, as they would walk through the streets, they would here an almost boom sound coming from a nearby building. One building that a sign in gold letters atop it that read "Cosmic Fire."
Once they entered the building, they would be greeted with a strange sight. Lining the walls were all kinds of herbs, plants, potions, salves and other such concoctions. The floor itself was was wooden, though it had quite a few scorch marks and glass shards almost randomly strewn across it. In front of them would be a large wooden desk, somewhat scorched as well, with a lavender haired girl, resting her elbows on top of it; in one had a broken beaker, in the other her face. While the girl seemed to be muttering about something she then looked up and saw that there were other people inside. Her expression was of an initial frustration, only to then shift to confusion as she said, "wait what are you all doing here? Didn't I leave the sign outside at closed? Or is it at open? Wait, do I even have a sign?" The girl looked away trying to wonder if she ever got around to purchasing it but looked back to them.
"Hm, well you're here now," she said decisively. Without turning her head, the girl tossed the beaker behind her before chippering up and saying, "well welcome folks to the Cosmic Fire, best apothecary and run by the Greatest Alchemist of all time, Zvesda Yuri," she pointed to herself with pride, "this side of Arbolia- no! This side of whatever this continent is named, I kind of forgot." She said this without shame or pause. "So, how can I help you all today?"
