With the blessing of the Artugan Chieftain he undertook the traditional rite during which a mate would climb up the side of a great volcano and retrieve a volcanic stone. So deep was his love that he strode down into the mouth of the volcano where the very air was poison and warped by heat and brought back with him a tiny stone.
For a Mur this was a dangerous feat as the oil from his skin (which is flammable) ran and burned him badly and once his rite was done the other Artya laughed at him for bringing such a tiny stone.

The ruins of Anrst used to be a pilgrimage for any fledgling Alchemist. Now it is a place of death. To be avoided at all costs. Any who trek into these ruins disappear, only to have a new chimera stomp along the grounds.
