The Frosthammer (Act III)
Leaving their residence for the last week, the group was lead down to a dock in the swamp connecting to a waterway that lead to the shore. At the dock were 2 boats with sailors eager to get back to their shipping manning the oars. Tiadora was waiting at the dock and smiled as they came up. The smile was cold and unfeeling.

They quickly got into the boats in the disguises theyd chosen. and the boats left the dock and headed towards the sea. On the left side after about an hour of rowing in the distance they could see Branderscar Prison. and in a hidden cove they saw the three masted sailing ship, sitting low in the water from the heavy load.

The boats went for the ship and as they neared it they could see the sailors aboard busily preparing to leave. Cargo netting was dropped for the group to climb up to the deck with and at the top of the climb was Captain Oldenkirk, a grizzled smuggler hailing from The Northern climes.

The Frosthammer (Act III)
ooc: I want you guys to feel free to change names and other details I'm mentioning in this post - I'm more trying to write a flavourful post that's in the spirit of our plan. although you guys of course have more control of your characters than I do. but I'm trying to "wing it" based on the spirit of our plan from the IC and OOC. Essentially though, unless someone complains otherwise, the story I'm spinning has the core of our entourage as Renard (As Rene', a minor merchant noble) and Maria (as a more important noble prospector/investor), and I linked 2 men to each: Tomas and Grumblejack to Renard and Victor and Ariq to Maria. Lukaz is sort of a companion of the entourage as a whole, and is coming with us to serve the ladies and provide spiritual guidance and moral support to everyone and such as we head north, where he may potentially go off to do missionary work or something.

The Lady Rene' Garova sent her traveling companion and mitran pilgrim (Lukaz), Victor (A servant and guard of Maria's), and her fixer Consultant (Tomas) ahead while she kept her bodyguard-protector (Grumblejack), her noble Ally and fellow investor (Maria), and their shared butler (Ariq) with them in the boat to go on up ahead. The two ladies, delicate and high-class as they were, were helped up onto the ropes by Grumblejack and Ariq respectively and helped onto the ship at the top by the menfolk up there, before climbing onto the ship themselves.

The Merchant looked around, and spotted the Captain.

"Ah...Mister Captain Oldenkirk, I presume? A pleasure to make your acquaintance in person at last. Thank you for meeting my entourage as arranged. I am Lady Rene' Garova - my grandmother on my mother's side was a very minor Baroness after all but I'm more merchant than noble these days. And with me is my good friend Countess Vivian Du-Lac, who is prospecting potential opportunities with me. And the gentlemen who helped us up are my traveling companion and Pilgrim of Mitra Alan (Lukaz), Vivian's bodyguard Bryan (Victor), and a consultant of mine Christopher (Tomas). Behind me is my bodyguard Ser Grunbeld Stark (Grumblejack), and Vivian's butler Eric (Ariq)."

The Captain had the weathered look of someone who had been at sea many years. He arched them approach and acknowledged them saying the Lady Tiadora has everything arranged. I am to take you and the cargo...a very heavy load I might add, up the coast and across the lake bypassing The Watch Wall and drop you off on the north shore, without attracting attention. he looked right at the woman...then added oh wheres my manners. welcome to The Frosthammer
