"Nah. He was all about the money, had a code of hospitality  too. If he cut you down and didn't kill you, he woulda sold ya for ransom. I don't normally nip about where that caliber ends up. I handle sloth,  idle gossip, petty theft, casual blasphemy and the like."

"Having being sold for ransom to the highest bidder, I think giving him a quick death is more merciful than a life of pain and suffering. The idea that selling for ransom is better is a bit of a justification for selfish gain at others expense."

"You can talk your way outta slavery or change terms on your own ransom to your friends. Can't talk your way outta being dead...  mean 5here was that one guy who wagered the reaper, but that was one guy. Dead don't leave no options for a change of heart. Then again killing the innocent keeps em from becoming evil."

"That's why you need to be careful when someone talks about saving souls! There's a chance they'll go around killing the innocent, so they can't turn to evil!" Berry quips. "But seriously, make a contract for your afterlife or you'll end up a sewer of the lower planes or something for all eternity. Or a chew toy for a chaos beast or cannon fodder for a celestial army if you get misfiled."

"Hell yeah. Better to be a sentient undead than that. But this guy was far from innocent, and I bet he had killed his share of innocents over time, or ordered them killed. They just go to the void when they die, as I understand."

"Yeah, we have... let's say insider knowledge. I suppose becoming an intelligent undead would work? Up until some self-righteous adventurer smites you. A getting decent afterlife for your soul would be a lot easier I think. Just remember your immortal soul is immortal and your afterlife is forever."

Gorgath nods to Amelia before looking in Gareth's direction,

"I not the monster. Liches not good. I fight liches."

"What did go on up there, I arrived a little late. Are we likely to have to fight more of them?"







Being NPC'd, Haveron left around when I told him I didn't  want to start a whole new game just for him...

Re: Caravan to Al Menir
I was going to suggest making a contract with someone empowered to negotiate... look, I know a guy. I can introduce you in the next town, good? Berry whispers. I will agree with the lich thing. Sounds like a lot of work for a really gross outcome and then your soul is stuck in a box? Doesn't sound great.

"Guess we will have to wait and see then. Looks like we need to get to this next town first...but this contract idea sounds like another form of slavery to me."

"Wait, you misunderstand me. I was talking about contracts with other beings for your soul, or mine at least. I intend to fulfill the caravan contract and get paid though.

Re: Caravan to Al Menir
Haveron responds to Gorgath, in response to his gesture "What do you mean by liches?  Did you fight one up there?  Something important happened, because the packers and teamsters are uneasy.  Plus, a few of our group are talking among themselves away from the rest of us.  I sense a division, and do not know what to make of it."

OOC From the structure of things, I see Haveron, Gorgath, Mischa, and Amelia talking in one group.  The other group has Berry, Var, and Gareth.  Or, are they all together?  The structure seems a bit muddled.

[Private to GM: As I understand things, Haveron has Amelia here as his permanent retainer/associate.  Does he have any one else from his ally group?  I want to say no, but please correct me if I am wrong. ]

I sense that some have pulled away from Gareth. From his perspective, he is still thinking there is nothing significant wrong. He never was great at social stuff...

Gorgath, Sorsha, Mischa, Haveron, Amelia [private to Haveron Stormwal: Amelia is your only permanent ally so far] and Adept Yisslitheniss are together, a number of yards away from Berry and Gareth. Var is nowhere to be seen at the moment.
