Good - even at this early hour, the Zubamon understood the situation he was in. Dagger seemed grateful for what he was given, but not wanting for more - and as far as the Dark Area was concerned, that was the best that he could hope for. Of course, the Sorcermon didn't spend a moment more with him than necessary, merely taking a note of his compliance with a simple glance over his shoulder.
As Dagger would quickly find out, though the wizard gave strict orders to the metal dragon, the same strictness definitely didn't adhere to the employer. Stepping into the main hall, the Zubamon would find himself alone for a minute or two, left in the simple blue glow of the floating lanterns. The wooden floors creaked soon enough, and from the hall on the left, the Sorcermon stepped towards Dagger. Reaching a hand out, he placed something onto his claw: a long blue crystal, tied around a strong cord. "Your door key," the wizard explained. "So long as you hold this, you'll be able to pass through the stone door without my help. Hold it up, and the gem will respond and point back here. When it turns red, it is time to return to the manor."
Simple enough? Without leaving time for questions, the Sorcermon would step forward, right through the door - and the Zubamon would find himself able to follow easily enough. Just outside, the Cherubimon sat, turning and looking down at the two as they walked out. "You have them?"
Slowly, Cherry lowered a hand, opening his palm before the two of them. Inside, dagger would see three different types of mineral: one, a chunk of rock with lines of what appeared to be silver running through them; two, another chunk that held a red metallic color, and three, what looked to be a solid piece of red gemstone.
"These are the products of our quarry,." the Sorcermon nodded, taking the first stone, holding it to the Zubamon to examine, before passing him the red ore: "Silver and Red Digitite. Properly refined, this is an important component in making items out of Digizoid. And this," The Sorcermon plucked that red gem out of the Cherubimon's hand, upon which it promptly turned blue. Passing it into Zubamon's hands, the gem would turn green, "is an Enchanter's Stone. For example, the crystal you're wearing, the door, and the lanterns inside the manor are all products of this ore."
That said, he took the three items, and pushed aside a flat rock with his foot - revealing a chute underneath. Dropping the three pieces right in the hole, he quickly replaced the stone. "Cherry will be breaking open a new part of the quarry, and it will be both your and his job to scout for and collect as much of this as possible. Cherry can sense the ore inside rock, but can't break it open without rendering the ore into sand."
This was the reason, of course, he had inspected the dragon's blade. "Cherry's presence will prevent other wild beasts from coming into the area. Should you see anyone other than me, hide in the crags unless Cherry approaches them with lowered hands. Any questions?"
