Cassie couldn't hide the shock on her face.  She never hugged anyone.  Or almost never did.

"B-but... They're strangers," she blurted out.

One hath learnt of a Expedition Thee hath assigned to Brother Plaous ast such did not meet with Thy expectations. One wast seeking to petition Thee to extend a continuance of yon endeavour. Towards this end a unit of Crimson Arrows under One's direction with the support of the Temple of Ironmound be commissioned for such.
ooc Was Plaous willing to go out again? If so he would also included, perhaps as 2IC.

 He looked at Justin again  as he waved off the women for a moment,...now  I remember.. yo were in the  Temple yesterday.....Do you know what it means to take up an expedition for  the  Lady's   House?.. And..why  would a group, such as the Arrows wish to take part?.. we have already sent  two groups of our own.. as  well as the  Twisted Tree  Comapany... only the last group  reported, when the  fellow you saw  yesterday  returned... we do not know what became of the others.... To that end?.. we  pay  a frection of the  contract up front, you do not get the  other  part, until you return , successful..

Aye Father, One wast here yesterday. T'was when Eta permitted One to learn of this Venture.
informed Justin One be cognizant of such ventures for Eta, ast such be for Success or Demise. The Crimson Arrows be interested in any undertaking which doth hath an opportunity to Inhibit the spread of Evil through the lands. Wouldst it be possible to learn the composition of these previous groups? ooc number and classes involved and the sum that is being offered up front and balance as the Players will need to know this.

  He snorted   in disgust,..the  twisted Tree had 10 people in thier compnay, Mostly  Mercs.. swordsmen , archers and such.. they took witht hem some  Holy folks.. I think a Cleric  from Nar and  a Holy  Warrior of the Alpower....the gate guards reported that they  left with 15... that was  6 Months ago....

  Our own group was    full of the faithful, and some Common  folks who  follow our lady... as you saw, they did not turn out  very well either.... There are  supposed to be other   Groups out there...Some  Commissioned by other Temples... some   are Mercs  hired  by rich collectors..,we have yet to hear of  any  that have found, even a hint...

 Then he  leads a  bit   closer,..there have been rumors of the groups mattacking each other!... as well as HArgen  partie s  searching our side of the Mountains..

Justin looked surprised by the High Priests disclosure, not its content rather that the Priest volunteered it. Eta's hand not. he exclaimed giving a shake of his head in concern. Be these Hargen groups violating the boarder, anst search groups have been attacking each other. What be Thy directives if we chance upon any rivals


ooc Would it be possible to get a more specific sum being offered up front and balance as the Players will need to know this

  The    High Priest looked   at  Justin and held out his arms,.. the merc    companies, what glory as well as payment.. it they stop another company from  reaching it..it  adds to thier  chances of winning.. I am  Sure LAdy Vert  likes that...

 Temple groups are rivals, no matter  how you look upon it.. stopign  a rival temple, means  as much as  finding it oneself?....and..the Collectors  and relic hunters... they will stop at nothing, to get  items they want. So?.. You can write   the  best  'rules of the Hunt' you are able, but they mean nothing  when you cross the  River....


 he  waves  at  a few flyers  on his desk,..you will see?  we  pay 200 silvers , up front.... then a total of  800, if the temple is  found... if it is noty  found, but you find some relics, we woill set up a barter site, so bith sides  are faily dealt with.

Justin nods in agreement of the High Priests declarations of the situation and searching groups, which mirror what he knows and has learnt. Father wouldst it be possible to learn of the result of guidance from Eta about the general area of this Temple; or perchance view the Tomes indicating their presence. ooc divinations, communions etc. Would the Elder Races archives have been referenced in this regard?

  The Priest looked  a bit thoughtful. If there are any tribes of  wood elves   or wild elves in the mountains, they may know.... but iof they do? they have no tried to aid  anyone in finding it There are Dragon lairs, that may have a Beast that knows of it... But i am unsure  if they will talk to you, ebfore they eat you......

 ...one of the things we  will be  speakign about, at the Council Meet, is the where abouts of any  Temples....

 Then his eye s   look off  as a thought distracts him, but he quickly looks at  Justin,..The Alpower?  They  never  give a  a scrap... The  High Priest Oge heard a tale of  ruins in the Greater Desert.. When he brought that up  at  the last Council Meet... He was belittled  by the  High Priest of the Alpower?.. It is one of the reasons  the other Temples  are trying to amass coin and followers... The High Priest of the  Alpower hold  the  Council lead, simply , ebcause his God is the 'oldest'...All the  secondary Gods  are trying to ..shuffle..the standing... except  for  the Followers  of Lennus..they  are staying true to thier pact with the Alpower..

 He waves the Girls away, and when they are alone he says,...I know this, Young one.... there are companies   that enter  and elave the  City, many times  a day.... Most come back... but not those who go to the Mountains.....This... bothers me.

 He points to  Neta's  symbol on the wall..I have this, in my   Office... as the High priest over there, has One of Eta... to remind us, that they are sisters, and were  one  the same god.. Until the Alpower   tried to kill her.. Instead. he created  two sisters  who have no love for him... and spaned Vert, the goddess of chance.. we  have sent  many a person to hunt...but the Alpower?...the biggest...richest Temple in the city..has...not...sent..one...

Learning that the temple of Alpower hasn't sent teams out to search raises the possibility of a deception, aimed at weakening the other Temples by allocating followers and spending resources on a possible red herring. Father hath any considered this to be a ruse instigated by those of Allpower

  The Priest  Nods  slowly,..almost  all of  us supsect that.... But some of the lesser gods, are   trying to curry Favor with the Alpower,  while a few, Like Nar, Follow the Sister's  lead.... They  say Lennus is angry at her Daughters, and she  made  no move to stop Alpower  from his attempt to  Kill Atta..the Goddess of Luck...when the sisters were Formed, and  Vert Born, they all cast a dark eye towards  the Alpower

  He gets   Up and  points at his water clock, while   putting on a lush Green Robe,..the other Gods... we cannot take the chance, that  Temples and relics  are not out there... It is weakening, both sides of the table...

Justin is relieved that the High Priest is considering that as an possibility. Father wouldst Thee consider providing a quantity of healing and support scrolls anst potions as additional incentive for yon venture. if he agrees Justin asks for a Contract with the Arrows to be produced so that he can take it to them for immediate assignment to himself and those assigned to undertake this commission.

  The   High Priest nods slowly. He calls out a Name  and  a Mid level looking Cleric  comes in the door,

  Uet. My Dear?... Please  pull a contact out, sent it up  with this fellow for  the   Arrows..The Crimson. Arrows.... and see if  we  can get a case of  6 healing  Potions  delvered to their  Inn.

  The woman  Nodded   , moving to a  set of drawers  to find the  correct contract.

  Also....  the standard  200 silvers  for startingthe   mission..

 ..I must go, join in  the battle  of words... we cannot  afforf more ehaling. we need things  on hand for  the faithful...and, of course, if the  Navy of  Guard needs  aid.
