Re: On the Road
Elizabeth bows, "I really like it when I am able to help. I know in straight up fights I am not as good but I had a lot of fun in this last battle. I knew you all were there to back me up if things went bad. Sorry about making all the laughing tiny versions of me, I couldn't help myself."

Elizabeth perks up and smiles.

"Thanks ! I thought it would make them mad and keep them busy and it did."

The cart is soon loaded up and people have whatever breakfast they brought along.

Re: On the Road
Da'Mari practices her lock picking skills to kill time on the ride, and if anyone else wants to learn she'll teach them too.

(I think Aliana was learning that from you, Elizabeth will probably watch too.)

Re: On the Road
Aliana did indeed study lockpicking from Da'Mari while they rode.   She smiled, because she used to.get very motion sick,  and her human body would have have blinding headaches and nausea from trying to concentrate on something in the bouncy wagon.  As an elf, she was feeling much better

It was weird to ride in the wagon with a dead guy, even if hisnbody were no magically preserved.
Which had been a creepy spell to cast, she had to admit

Re: On the Road
Soon the ground becomes more and more covered in frost and a bit of snow. The group sees their breath in the air. After a hard day of riding a city comes into sight in the distance. High walls, a castle with towers. A place that speaks of wealth and power but for those with sharp eyes cracks could be seen in the image. Some were literal cracks others were from the chaotic smattering of smoke rising from chimneys.

This was undeniably Neverwinter.

Re: On the Road
Despite growing up in the northern USA, or perhaps because of it,  Aliana wasn't a fan of snow and cold.  She was glad to see the town, rough and cracked though it be.

Re: On the Road
Da'Mari was covered up with as many layers and blankets she could find, and sat in the back of the wagon covered up and mumbling. "I want a hot bath when we find a place to stay. Two hot baths actually."

Re: On the Road
As they get closer to the city it gets warmer. Rising from thirty to about fifty five. Any snow is not visible in the city. Steam rises up from the river running through town.

Re: On the Road
"I'll admit, it is warmer inside the city than it was. But I like warmth, like in the 80s. You know, nice and warm." She smiled from her blanket cocoon.

Da'Mari stuck her tongue out and laughed. "Its one of the reason I stayed topside for so long."

Re: On the Road
At the gate mercenary guards collect tax. Though the man they had saved hands them a pass. They hand it back and wave everyone through.

The man says, "Its the least I can do."

"Well, its not like we could have just left you there." Da'Mari smiles at Torvin and chuckles.

"Just point us in the direction of a hot meal and hot baths."

"Of course." She nodded and pulled the blanket up over her head some more.

Re: On the Road
Soon Torvin and his sad cargo are dropped off at a temple. Only a few are open in Neverwinter. Aliana is able to make contact with the temple of Oghma here which is also open.

Back at the inn the group makes arrangements for their stay.

Re: On the Road
Da'Mari keeps her cloak wrapped around her tightly with Pearl tucked in too. She pays for the groups rooms, meals and hot baths too if anyone else wants one.

"That sounds good, I will go for that. Mmmm a nice warm bath. A shower would be better. Should work up a shower spell."
