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. "

"Maybe work for the local lord but I dont know about the mayor. Bill said the aboleths own him."

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

"Well lets see what the people think of things. Nobody knows better than the population, right?"

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?"

Re: On the Road
"There is the masked Lord from Waterdeep trying to take over here. Rebels dead set against that, the many arrows orc tribe acting freelance mercenaries while they loot, the Aboleth wanting to drive everyone away or mad, a cult of Asmodeuos trying to weasil its way topower. Even Thay has a lich trying to gain or do something while opposed by Shadovar."

Aliana's beautiful eyes widened in alarm.
"Wow....yeah, that's a lot of crap going on.   Yeesh...."

Aliana frowned, and crossed her arms in annoyed thought.
"I wish I knew who to trust.  "

She laughed nodding her head. "Even if I wasn't his granddaughter, it would still be cool to meet Drizzt. I like my chances."

Re: On the Road
Aliana nodded and smiled ruefully
"Well, if you could remember what the order was that we were supposed to do these things,  perhaps that would keep us from crashing a balrog slumber party before we're ready."

Re: On the Road
Da'Mari looked at Bill thoughtfully and smiled. "You know, Marv was kinda right about you Bill. With all your knowledge you're like a demigod or something. Maybe a Fate. As the GM you already know what's going to happen and where, and if you decide to change a detail or two mid game you can. Maybe you can do that here too."

Re: On the Road
Aliana looked apprehensive
"I'd be interested to see how that works,  if at all.  And let's be very careful to keep.that to ourselves.   There's no telling what would happen if all these liches and aboleths find out about this "
