Re: Hewit's Haven.
Dustil raised an eyebrow at the mug that kept growing and stopped pouring once he had poured enough for a normal-sized mug, roughly. "That...is an interestin' item. Heh."

Re: Hewit's Haven.
"Isn't it? It's a riot at parties. Actually caused on once too." The gnome replies as he finally stops stirring his small black cooking pot.  He puts on some gloves picks it up by the handles and put's it on a small round stone table next to his desk. He then grabs a bowl a spoon and a ladle and starts putting what seems like some kind of white soup into the bowl. "Homemade Thrykian Clam Chowder; Anyone want some? I have plenty." The gnome asks.

"Absolutely. Aden doesn't have his own bowl, but definitely wants to take the gnome up on his offer.

"What are the must-see sights here?"

Re: Hewit's Haven.
the gnome fills Draz'gar's bowl "I wouldn't dare presume to say that there is anything here someone absolutely must see." The  gnome then moves over to a near by cabinet and takes out a bowl for aden "Right now I think the exhibits that gather the most lookers are the dragon's tooth, the signing of the Arcadian Accords and the Exhibit on forge-town uprising/liberation. Took me years to put that together. Even after a decade we still know so little about them, their way of life. how they come to be. Doesn't help that their first contact with us when they awoke was the archaeological expedition that ended so tragically." The gnome fills that bowl and then hands it and a spoon to Aden.

Re: Hewit's Haven.
Dustil gave a small bow to the Gnome. "Thank you. I'd be honored to try out your chowder." He waits for Aden and Drazgar to get their food first. He listened politely to the exhibits mentioned and gave another nod.

Re: Hewit's Haven.
Aden takes the bowl, saying, "Thanks mate.  And yeah, that whole thing was pretty terrible.  At least some of the human archaeologists tried to do the right thing.  They should know we're not all bad."  Aden then tries the chowder, keeping a straight face in case he doesn't like it.

"You know much about their technology? This visor thing on my head, it let's me see the heat that things and people put off.  I think there's a way to activate some additional vision modes with it, and I was actually thinking about going to the war-forged to see if they had any ideas."

Re: Hewit's Haven.
The Gnome Grabbed another bowl "You're not the first to speculate a Ma'ndo War-forged connection" He filled it with chowder and then handed it to dustil with a spoon. "Unfortunately, or Fortunately depending on your point of view, The War-forged don't seem to have anymore insight on Ancient relics then the rest of us. Then again it is said that the wise hawk hides it's talons."

"Maybe. I'll probably still run it by them. I'm a pretty nice guy, people talk to me sometimes. Not sure people applies to sentient robots, but still."

"You lived in Arcadia long?  Been paying any attention to the novice games?"


OOC: Maybe Aden can get some info from this guy to help us research the last gauntlet room.  But Aden is also being super cautious about giving other people info.  Same reason he wanted to come here instead of the super-crowded Drunken Monkey.

Re: Hewit's Haven.
The Gnome sat down at the desk and began to eat. "I've been around for a bit." The gnome replied to Aden before drinking some of the Ale Dustil had given him. "Of course I've been watching the Games. Can't think of anyone who hasn't watched at least some of it. You have been doing pretty well. But the games have just started and they are about to get serious."

Re: Hewit's Haven.
"Thanks, we'll try to keep honoring the city with victory.  Would you be willing to help us research something having to do with the games?"

If so, Aden will give his companions a look as to whether they should trust the gnome.  If Aden trusts the gnome, and the others don't object, Aden will tell the gnome about the last room and see if he has any insight, or can guide them to the right info here at the Haven.

Sense motive on Gnome.  I'll let DM roll for me so I don't know result.  Sense Motive +4

Drazgar listens and watches the Gnome to judge his words for truth and intention.

Re: Hewit's Haven.
Dustil ate the offered chowder as he listened, murmuring that it was wonderful at one point - whether or not it actually was! He occasionally took sips from his flask to wash it down as well. But for the most part he let Aden make his 'play', watching the Gnome unobtrusively.

Re: Hewit's Haven.
"To a limited degree. I can't directly help you with anything, but I can suggest some books or answer questions on general theory." The gnome answers.

Re: Hewit's Haven.
Aden finds himself trusting the guy, and looks to his companions, giving them one last chance to suggest otherwise. If they don't, Aden tells the gnome they need to understand the relationship between the symbols, shapes, and elements from the last room of the gauntlet. "If you could point us in the right direction, we'd really appreciate your help."

Re: Hewit's Haven.
Dustil watched the gnome as he ate the chowder in silence. When he caught Aden's questioning glance, he gave a slight shrug of his shoulders and a tilt to his head indicating that he didn't sense any deception in the gnome so it was probably okay.

Re: Hewit's Haven.
"I can see why that gave you some trouble. Heh, wizards. I'd bet gems to tarts that one of the dean's at the Academy dreamt this up. It's based upon what was considered the foundations of natural philosophy. Literally classic stuff." The gnome replies as he starts to lead you through the library. After a few twists and turns and passing through several different rooms. he brings you to a self with books whose titles are all in different languages.

"All you'd ever want to know is here, but here's the catch. The full translation has been done to common, but it includes a lot of extraneous information. However if one of you happens to know draconic or gnomish there are two summaries that are more to the point." he pulls out the full translation and hands it to you.

http://classics.mit.edu/Plato/timaeus.html  if anyone knows those two languages i'll pm the link to you.

Re: Hewit's Haven.
Aden thanks the gnome for his assistance.  He intends to go procure a scroll of comprehend languages.  He only has 7gp, but he does have a number of scrolls and can maybe convince a vendor to give him an even trade.

"So is this where we split up for the night? Yanyeeku and I can get our scroll and study these texts.  Dustil, you have some business to see to?  Should Drazgar go with you?  It's safer if we travel in pairs."

@dm, anywhere Aden can think of to find scroll of comprehend languages?  Perhaps a friendly temple that would give him even value trade?

Re: Hewit's Haven.
Dustil, after a moment's hesitation, quietly relates that he has 10 gold that he might be able to give most of to the group to purchase a scroll if needed.

Re: Hewit's Haven.
"Yanyeeku, want to go with me to find a scroll?  Dustil, I'll take as much gold as you can spare, hopefully I won't need it if I can do an even trade."

Aden is ready to go scroll shopping.

Re: Hewit's Haven.
"Hm?" Yanyeeku looked up from nearby where he had been browsing some books on  otherplanar entities. "Oh. Sure Aden." He slid the book he was holding back where he had found it and joined the Oracle.
