Part 31: Chapter Thirty: The Pact of WindViese needed to head to Weathervane Hill in order to find Hexi Glass, but in turn she needed a grappling hook to scale a short cliff there.
What is that?
Well be able to climb up cliffs with this.
But, well need something to hook it onto at the top.
I want to climb.
Well, I think youre a little too young to start climbing.
Still, they both headed to the home of the Wind Mana. On the way, they found another lithograph.
They then continued to the heights of the hill.

Oh, hello. You must be an alchemist.
Silwest, the Wind Mana, was happy to make a pact with Viese.
It was a little hard.
Have you come all this way to make a pact?
Yes, I did.
Great. It gets pretty boring standing here all day
Making a pact with you might be fun.
Well, that was easy
Easy?! I decided to make a pact because you seem pretty nice
But I could act like a prima donna and demand you bring me things and perform pointless tasks first
Would you prefer me to do that?
Oh, no no.
Ill gladly accept your offer.
Mana, the father of power the mother of life The source of all nature
I, Viese Blanchimont, have pledged to uphold the sacred tenets of Lilith.
In honor of that pledge, I have come to form a pact with Silwest, the Wind Mana!
System Message: Received the mark of the Wind Mana, the [Wind Gem]!
Im so happy we met, umm Sorry, I didnt listen to your little chant, hehe.
My name is Viese Blanchimont.
Cool. Nice to meet you, Viese.
Viese hoped to get help finding some Hexi Glass.
So, you want to make a charm for this boy ?
Why is that?
Staying up all night, making trinkets for your hard working and deserving husband
Youre a model wife!
Hes not my husband! And, I dont stay up all night! Just til 11:30
Now that I know what youre up against, I, Silwest the Awesome will have your back!
For instance, I think theres still some Hexi Glass around here somewhere
Yeah. Lets go find it.
Near the front of the Hill, their search ended.
Yep. Thats Hexi Glass alright.
But, how can I get up there ?
Leave that to me!
Look, Ma! Im flying!
System Message: Received [Hexi Glass]!
Thank you. Lets go back to my workshop and start Synthesizing.
The recipe was otherwise simple.
Lets start Synthesizing my charm!
And Viese quickly finished her work.
This is really going to make Felts job easier.
Then I have to report the new info I found at the library.
Viese didnt rely on Felt to read the book she sent him.
Together, they developed the masterpiece of their alchemy careers the Azoth. Palaxius created the Crimson Azoth, while Elusmus created the Azure Azoth. With his Azoth, Palaxius wiped out an entire region. This led to a Dark Age of Alchemy.
All this information did somewhat concern Viese as to Felts safety.
From the greatest sword to a piece of candy; everything should be made for a purpose.
So, what purpose did Palaxius create the Crimson Azoth for?
Youre worried about Felt, arent you?
Maybe just a little
Im sure hell be okay. After all, he does have my charm.
Felt will be okay Wont he ?
Felt, meanwhile, was reading Vieses first letter.

Im always worried about your safety To stop from worrying, I made a charm for you. It has Hexi Glass in it to make you stronger. Just wear it and it should work.
I found some new information for you in a book called [Alchemists of the Slaith Era]. I think youll find it to your liking. Please take care of yourself, Felt.
Meanwhile, Felt had more than the Crimson Azoth to worry about.
Whats going on? Why do you look so happy?
N-No reason. Cant I just be happy?
They still needed to reach the next workshop.
Theres been no change at the Imperial Camp.
Busting through that many soldiers is gonna be hard
After that riot, Im sure Galahads keeping his soldiers on their toes. It wont be easy.
Well, the workshop is in the woods anyways.
Lets just go through the Dark Forest now.
It is dangerous, but it cant be worse than the camp.
Is there a path in the woods that goes south?
Haha! Ah, sweet Noin So blissfully naïve
Obviously, the frightful beast can guide us through safely.
Ahh Since they live in the Dark Forest, they must know their way around.
I deserve a kiss!
Sounds like a plan!
Lets go to the Hidden Village first.
While Poe was displaying a frightening amount of competence, Iris was continuing her forays into alchemy.
What is it, Iris?
These are Animal Cookies. Where did you get them?
I made it.
Wow! Youre getting good at this.
Do you want to eat it?
Well, they look tasty, but they taste bad. Eating them is not a good idea.
Really? But, I wanted to eat them with you.
Thats very kind of you. But we shouldnt.
Then, please take them.
System Message: Received [Animal Cookies]!
Viese continued to be impressed at how quickly Iris picked up alchemy.
Youre making all sorts of things now. Is anyone teaching you?
No. I do it all by myself.
But, where did you learn it?
From watching you, naturally.
Really ? You really are very talented, Iris.
I will work hard and make other things.
Thats great! Im looking forward to it.
Okay, bye bye.
How can she learn so much just form watching me ?
Next time well see what happened when Felt and his friends returned to the Dark Forest.
