The seemingly endless cornfeld around the capital city has turned into a colorfull hustle and bustle of market booths, merry-go-rounds and musicians playing to peoples cheerful dances on every corner. Everyone seems to enjoy this last few warm and sunny days, before the spirits of the sun lays to rest for the winter to come. You also decided to join and enjoy the Harvest Fair's cheerfull atmosphere, when all of the sudden a few young ones approche you. Their voices sound sad: "You're one of the merchants which keeps spirits around, aren't you", one starts pointing on the guilds logo stitched on your cloak. "Can you ask the spirits to find the candy? It's gone missing..." -  "NO! IT WAS STOLEN!!" another kid intrrupts. In chorus they ask again "Can you help. PLEASE!

You still wonder if anyone would steal the candy. It's an old tradion of the merchants to gift all unsold candy to the children on the last evening of October. Beloved by young and old. "Is it possible that it's not been stolen but hidden?" Suggests someone you can't quite see, then a giggle, a Raunen appears before you, flitting through the air playfully, perhaps they'd been near you and you just didn't notice them until the warm glow filled your vision. "Yep I bet that's what it is" It chimes playfully "Why, if you could find some of it I be the kids would think you're a real hero!" 

What will you do?
