Sant Antoni de Portmany, at this point in time, is an old Roman harbor town and fishing village on the coast of Ibiza. No nightclubs or DJ's or any of that yet. There is a flavor in local culture that celebrates festivities and dancing that dates back to the pagan Phonecians, but this is irrelevant. Ibiza was recently conquered by Count Peter of Urgell, but it has yet to be pacified and the count has recently developed other problems.
Roberto occupies an old lighthouse tower built by the Romans. Long out of use (replaced by a larger one some two hundred years ago), the building is still in perfect shape and is an exquisite example of Roman engineering. Also, because of being situated on a sea cliff, it is the highest point in the area. There is a magic aura that exists only on the top floor of the tower, where Roberto plans on installing his lab.
Because it had been abandoned, in favor of a larger tower with easier access, and because of his heroic acts defending a local merchant against pirates, and because he has the Gentle Gift now; the villagers were fine with letting him move in.
Arnau d'Orfes, a "Combustion" and leader of 60 men (5 "Torches", 40 soldiers, and 15 auxiliary), has come to investigate rumors of some sort of wizard active in the area. His commander, Bernat de Ferrofós (a "Conflagaration"), has sent him with three ships and double the normal compliment of soldiers (just to be safe), for the purpose of investigating these rumors and insuring that the population is indeed pacified.
Roberto had spotted him on the horizon around mid morning. He has heard of these Flame Brothers and their recent activities, and this concerns him.
Roberto goes out to the docks to meet them as their ships sail into port around noon. He has Johan and a band of rough sailors take to the Malaga and hide in the bay while submerged. He has Wen use the carpet to take to the clouds with Cidito for recon.
Roberto himself waits at the docks with Carlos and a handful of his soldiers...
He hopes for a peaceful parley, but if not, then Desperta ferro...
