Akungi Sain called out on the Pyromancer aetherwave, asking for help in a worried voice. Alary responded quickly, but she quickly panicked as Akungi fainted and was unable to provide any helpful information. Soon, tremors began to rock the Pyramid of the Pyromancers in Gaudiguch, worsening the stress on both Akungi and Alary. Luckily for both of them, Sage Rolan Vessandril arrived and quickly took charge of the situation. Akungi explained that the strange sandstone statue that had emerged from the temporal door years earlier was beginning to crack apart. Resigned to the imminent death of ‘Boopie’, they stood vigil over the statue before Akungi had the idea that heating up the statue would fuse it back together!
Requesting enough gold and materials to set up a powerful fire pit, Akungi quickly accepted the supplies from Sage Rolan. As the fire pit was being constructed, the statue began to move even as the cracks deepened and spread. The strange statue, speaking in reverse as its words flowed backward in time, demanded power from the gathered Pyromancers. Viynain, Alary, and Rolan quickly drained their reserves into the dry sandstone, though much more was required. With the aid of all the citizens of Gaudiguch, the statue soon received enough power to move fully. With a quick step, it plunged into the fire pit, opening a gateway to the Fire Elemental Plane.
The City of Freedom quickly found the statue, now Scuchemi Tliwx, morose and confused in a strange pavilion. Though he thought he had no place in this timestream, the mystic eventually agreed to teach the Pyromancers the ways of pyrochemantics in order to bring about a brighter future than the one he had left behind. Thus, Rolan Vessandril became the first pyrochemantic in modern times.
