Session 2: Part 1
While conversing of the strangeness of Pashin and its inhabitants, the party members made their way through the city and outside to the bazaar. Filled with all types of people, shops and booths, the kender was in a veritable cornucopia. The others had to hurry to keep him from getting into too much trouble. They toured the booths, stopping to inspect items here and there, buying some basic supplies such as rope etc. Making their way through the booths, the adventurers passed by a non-descript tent, when suddenly the flap opened. A completely bald and blind gnome, from the look of gray cataracts covering his eyes, peaked out and addressed them. The gnome told he was expecting them, and knew they were seeking answers. He related the answers they seek would only lead to more questions, so seek out the elves. The gnome smiled and returned to his tent, closing the flap behind him.
The shocked party members looked at each other, shrugged, and continued walking towards the horse market. (LOL, that was last thing I thought they would do) Continuing on, they saw an unusual centaur charismatically showing off all types of horses to potential customers. Uther, Taoran and Sylus knew they could not afford them, but Nasiak curiously approached the centaur. The irda-in-disguise observed the horsemaster, the first centaur he had seen. The centaur saw the “wizened-looking old man,” and approached to introduce himself as Brannik. Starting his usual sales pitch, the centaur was delighted to see the man take interest. Nasiak even mounted a horse for the first time, and agreed in saying he wanted one of the wonderful beasts. Branik quoted a price of at least 100 steel for one of his lesser breeds. Nasiak gave the centaur a confused look, asking him what this steel was? The centaur huffed, and galloped off angrily at what he thought was an insult for the price. Uther and Sylus gave each other odd looks, but couldn’t discuss it because Taoran was climbing the fence to get to the horses. (Great RP there!)
It was becoming mid-afternoon. Sylus and Toaran agreed that they wanted to check on the body of the assassin and claim his belongings. Uther and Nasiak wanted nothing to do in that business, telling them to meet them at the inn an hour. Sylus and Taoran sped off to the familiar alley, finding the body was still there. They stripped him clean, including the armor, finding all types of booty. Taoran pocketed the money pouch while Sylus was attempting to get off the bloodied armor. The two agreed they would let Sylus inspect the potions and gear, as some could be magical. Making their way back to the Five Dragons Inn without a hitch, Sylus and Taoran headed for their rooms. The innkeeper Emaline stopped Sylus, asking to have a word. The ranger put down the armor, bloody side down, suspiciously eyeing the woman. Emaline called in her daughter who held a rolled up parchment. She meekly gave it to Sylus as he unrolled it. On the paper was an artist’s rendition that could only be a likeness of himself. “It was that scar that made me remember,” the girl said. Under his likeness the words “WANTED: 200 STEEL REWARD, CONTACT BLACKBIRD AT THE WOUNDED CROW,” were written. Sylus told them he had no idea who this Blackbird was. Emmaline believed him, knowing he wasn’t evil from the ring. She told Sylus to be careful of Blackbird, a crimelord of some renown in Pashin, and that his secret was safe. Sylus thanked her and made his way upstairs somberly.
Going into his room, he found the rest of the party. Uther was preaching about letting the dead rest, while Taoran asked how could dead people rest being they weren’t alive anymore. Nasiak Detected Magic seeing the rapier and potions radiated magic, he was able to get the gist of their functions. Divvying up the spoils, Sylus announced he was leaving to speak to Kelwick, the kender they helped the previous day. Taoran, always curious about his sad kin, decided he would accompany him. Uther and Nasiak agreed to stay at the inn, meeting them at The Wounded Crow later on in the evening. Sylus blanched at the mention of the place, but gave a quick nod of agreement before leaving with the kender.
The party splits, muah ha ha ha. More to come for Session 2....
