Re: On the Road
Da' Mari is able to soak in a nice hot bath and clean up while Pearl maintains watch.

Floating around and keeping alert.

Re: On the Road
With Pearl keeping watch, Da'Mari has the bath water warmed up one more time and dozes off in the tub. "If I fall asleep, dont let me fall below the water. Dont want to drown in my sleep." She said with a half smile and chuckled closing her eyes.

"Uh, you can let the water go cold on its own. Just if I start to slip under the water if I fall asleep then give me a nudge to wake me up." She smiled looking at her familiar.

Re: On the Road
"A nudge, ok got it." She kept up watch like a tiny beholder. If it weren't so creepy it might be cute and it scared the inn maid who came in the reheat the water.

With her eyes closed Da'Mari spoke to the maid in an amused tone. "She wont hurt you, dont worry. Thank you for the reheat miss."

Re: On the Road
Pearl needed to wake up Da'Mari twice.

The others played their game for a couple hours gaining strange looks but serving as a great stress reliever for the crew.

Re: On the Road
Aliana fell into the role of "GM" for the game with reluctance, but she soon got into it.  She much preferred being a player, but since the game was her idea, in a weird way, she ran with it.

The group was soon led, by rumors, notes left in the trash, and anonymous emails, to start searching the office building for a huge lump of stolen company cash, while making everything seem normal for the inspectors, who grilled them one by one.

It was Crystal who noticed a strange set of typos in the emails that they found, that talked about "getting the money".  Peter then pieced together the notes, and found notes for a rental car in the parking garage.   Bragadash, who knew a little about breaking into cars ("long story", he said) was able to open the door and found the suitcase full of bearer bonds.  And it was Elizabeth, who searched the rest of the car, and found, under the passenger side, an empty roll of avocado flavored Lifesavers, the same kind that Susan, the HR lady, ate, after buying them from that weird shop across town.

The group brought it all to the investigators (though Peter made a good argument, for a few minutes, for taking the bonds to Mexico), and in minutes Susan was arrested and led away in cuffs.

She even said "I wouldn't gotten away with it, too, if it hadn't been for you meddling kids!!"

Re: On the Road
Da'Mari glances around as she walks over to join her friends at the table. She smiles happily and takes a seat facing the door, a habit she picked up since coming to this world.

"I highly recommend a hot bath. It was so nice."

Re: On the Road
Aliana smiled, finishing her drink
"I'll admit that sounds like a wonderful idea.  I may do that now."
She pondered the idea of leaving the table, though, with a sigh

Re: On the Road
Aliana blinked in surprise,  misunderstanding the beautiful bard, for just a moment, then blushed and nodded quicklas she realized the woman's obviously innocent statement.
"Okay, see you all later, Bye!!"
She smiled at Da'Mari, vowing to not drown, as she left

Re: On the Road
"I am going to head to my room now. This was a good night," Da'Mari said and stood up grabbing her cloak. "Good night everyone. See you in the morning."

"Come on Pearl." Feeling fresh and relaxed Da'Mari walked to her room with her mini beholder floating beside her.

The next morning everyone woke up and was downstairs where a good meal was being cooked for the patrons of the inn.

Re: On the Road
Da'Mari took a seat in the corner facing the rest of the room, glancing up now and then when other patrons came in for breakfast. She was sitting back in her chair enjoying a cup of coffee and reading a book, and gave some fruit to Pearl to eat.

Re: On the Road
Aliana came downstairs to join her friends.  She'd had some odd dreams the night before, possibly caused by their "Perils and Paychecks" game, where she was wandering a generic office, dressed as a sexy secretary, trying to find where her friends' offices were, and kept walking into offices full of leering or scowling men.   Several of the men had more than two eyes, but whether that was due to some fear of being leered at or caused by seeing Pearl was unclear.

She'd woken up from her trance feeling less rested than normal, but also weirdly nostalgic for Earth, even the creepy and tedious office environment Greg had worked in as an office Temp, years before.

All in all, she was eager to continue with their mission.  She spoke quietly to Da'Mari and all assembled.
"What shall we start with today?  We can ask around for Adventurers, or check in with the local Lord, or just go wandering into the rift?
We've got Bill's 'inside information' as well."

Re: On the Road
Da'Mari set her book down on the table and looked at the group. "I think we should at least make an appearance at the Rift. We know what's going on but we should try to come back with some actual proof. After that, Im good with whatever."

She looked at Bragadash and smiled, "Brag and I also want to go to Gauntlegrim since we're close by."

Re: On the Road
In reply to Da' Mari (msg # 2369):

Aliana nodded,  smiling wryly
"I understand about Guantlgrim, but we took money to help out here, so let's work this problem for a bit first.   I'm thinking we do some exploring,  and maybe some investigating of the local government. "

Aliana nodded
'That's my point.    We need to know how much power and influence each of.them has.  "

Re: On the Road
The elf maiden looked dubious
"Unfortunately,  that's part of the problem, isn't it?  That there's a lot going on behind the scenes that the general public doesn't know about?"

The priestess frowned.
"Which ones?"
