Mancini gathers an unlikely crew to see what is holding up the kobolds from cleaning Lamont DuClair's extensive cellars.

Mancini gathered his crew in a guild conference room before they departed. "Before we begin, I would like to start out by saying that the guild is in a state of flux. I've been working here for a long time, behind the scenes, in a logistical capacity, and what I've seen... it isn't good. It isn't sustainable. The factions within the guild don't work together nearly well enough, and there's far too much animosity. This not only leaves us weaker to the other powers of the city, but makes things more dangerous for you, the rank and file."

"Our expedition will require discretion on your part. What we learn must be tightly controlled. You may end up having to keep secrets from the other guild faction leaders. This is... politics... and if you don't wish to involve yourselves, you may wish to step away. Are you all willing to proceed?"


ooc: In other words there may be aspects of espionage and inter-guild politics, so if that's not fun for you this is an IC reason to back out.

In reply to Oly (msg # 4):

A small few arrives as the speach concludes.

"I had some kobold friends say there were problems here. They asked me to come along to ensure it was safe for them to return once you are finished. That Ok?"

"You're a member of the guild, Aoife. You are free to accompany us as a full member of the expedition. Though I am curious as to how the kobolds caught wind of what we're planning. When you have a chance, try to find out who's been talking. But save that for after the briefing."

"Oh, I am not sure they knew about your trip. They just knew they could not finish their work, so they asked if I would look into it..."

"I was clearing bowls in the common room when you spoke with Monsieur Du Clair. My brother was working that detail and told me what
happened. Aoife had been ministering to his injuries and I told her."
