Master, you will be pleased to know that the first two of the Binding Stones have been uncovered: the Ghost Stone and the Crackling Stone. Proximo was among the discoverers, but it seems he has yet to find the Flare Stone as you had sent him to do. He has allied himself to a formidable, if motley, company who should be useful in aiding his search. They should be no match for you once you have the Stone, however.
Yours in fire,
