Seeking Lord Rufus
Velox leaves his friends behind and sees that they are still talking to the guard that had been patrolling. Oren only listened for a few more moments then he too was following Velox. He figures he'll find it quicker to go ahead and meet the local leader of Burne's Badgers. He heads between the fancy buildings and just as he goes through the crook it's easy to see the bridge the badger had mentioned.

You cross the bridge and see a farm to the left, a bit further and nearly across from the street from one another are a Tailor shop and Weaver shop by the signs.

You next come to on the right a building that appears to be some sort of community building or forum if you would. Though it seems quiet at the moment. Coming to the next fork you can hear music from a rather large building to the right, you guess that might be the Welcome Wench. You'd have to take the right fork to enter it though and you decide to continue on and take the left.

You see a man hammering out what might be a shield outside his shop to the right. He spots you and gives a nod as he keeps hammering. A sign shows that this is a blacksmith shop.

Velox enjoyed his walk and though he'd been tempted to enter the Welcome Wench, he decided he would save that for after he'd visited with Lord Rufus.

As he neared what he thought to be his final turn he caught sight of the blacksmith and stopped saying, "Greetings, I'm headed to see Lord Rufus. I've traveled here with a few others to help out with the bandit problem. Did one of the Badgers need a new shield?" He asked referring to the work the man was doing in that moment.

In reply to Velox (msg # 2):

The middle aged human stops banging on the shield and puts his hammer down. A beagle looks up at you but since you are neither rabbit nor squirrel goes back to resting its head behind the forge.

"It is good to have help against the Bandits." he replied "I am Brother Smythe. As for the shield it's just something to work on. Burne's Badgers largely came to town fully equipped, I only have to hammer out a replacement now and then. I like to have some goods on hand to sell now and then. I welcome the return of adventurers they always have money it seems. Though if you are at the beginning of your journey you might be a little lighter than normal."

Oren looked over the Brother Smyths work, giving it his appraisal.  "Yer work be good lad, even if yer arn't a dwarf.  I am sure that some of the bandit hunters will commission more work, once they have retrieved the bounty."  The dwarf spoke confidently.

In reply to Oren Stonebreaker (msg # 4):

"Very kind of you master dwarf" he smiles.

He moves around behind the anvil. Scout, the beagle, moves out of the way lazily looking at you while he yawns.

Brother Smyth leans over and retrieves a chain shirt.

"This is my finest piece right now." Brother Smyth says holding up a chain shirt.

[Private to Oren Stonebreaker: Oren's trained eye quickly alerts him that this piece is a masterwork chain shirt. Only thing better would be if it was made of mithril rather than steel.]

Velox eyed the shirt and if he had the coin he'd have happily purchased it on the spot. "That is as fine of craftsmanship as I've ever seen. If we return victorious, you can rest assured that a shirt of that quality will be desired by all."

Oren examines the chain shirt closely, nodding his head in approval.  "The lad has it right, fine work, worthy of being called Masterwork.  Well, if we want to seek out those bandits, we cannae stand around chatting too much.  Master Smyth, tis an honor, and ye can count on seeing more adventurers coming through here.  Blessings of the Forge upon ye and yer works.  May Moradin grant that we meet again, a great deal wealthier over a fine cask of ale."  The dwarf spoke, ready to move on.
