"I will get us the small conference room, and we need the services of someone with Connoisseur skill to evaluate the weapons, I will try to sell off the armors, for the usual 40% worth value. If we can get the mages amongst us to check over anything magical we may have missed... the terms of the contract state that we need to treat the gear as its cash value when dividing it up, so that we can pay our investors properly, although you can choose to keep whatever your share is worth."

Occ: Ii need to find the contract and work out how many shares are worth what, and get a total valuation for gear, remind me of anything I left out.

Snorri  accepts the axe as part of his share, donates to his new church, and also takes the knives of the prisoners, which he returns to them, along with the seed money that Kalvo had given him.
"No man, no matter how poor or mean, ought be without a way to cut his meat, and it would be dishonest of me to keep his coin, and he ever wanted to see the coin of his homeland. Mayhap he can apply it to his own indenture, by Grom, and become a free man in less time.

"I have seen how the guild keeps the indedentured men, they have quarters next to those sold to the necromancer. It is harsh way to live, and hard to keep one's dignity. When I swore myself to your group, I could not hold his coin any longer, and all he ever wanted was to have a few fistfuls of that lost silver, wanted it bad enough to consort with necromancers. The Hadereum is likely to fine him for five years income, plus the cost of healing. He will not be a danger to anyone for years, and this may well break him."

"Fair enough then, I have not familiarized myself with Haderums Justice. I can add some to what you offer, though his desperation for coin is still some concern of mine, for it will still avail him to dishonest gain. Perhaps effort would be better spent seeing to him serving the church of Grom for his sins instead, arguing that employing someone carrying the blasphemous rod meant that his punishment should include service to Grom? Our church could then focus on making him a better person rather than damaging him for his transgressions."

Getting them charged with necromancy will involve being subjected to truthsayer spells, you might want to coordinate before engaging with that,  and it may be best for Kirpich to not participate...

Incidentally, the local priest of Grom is a very old fellow who is part earth elemental, and has some druidic investment as well. He is called Vechiu de u Voscu.

Kirpich is the kind of fellow that does not like to keep secrets form his order. He will ask for a private meeting with Vechiu, during which he will describe his dealings with the rod of the builder, including its use to stop the undead elemental from being used for evil purposes under the control of a necromancer. He will go into detail of how this resulted in the rods destruction by causing the group to choose the blessings of Grom over the cash from the rod, and how Grom had forgiven him when they did so.

He takes the approach that it is best to face the consequences now rather than giving evil men something to hold over him.

" The two cards are not in relation to eachother.. and the horizontal position of the death card... it is also inverted. Usually it means change, but in this position, it signifies something stagnating, and in opposition. Battles also, with all of these sword cards. They aren't in any of the traditional  spreads, so I cannot determine the sequence by the relative sequence. Someone unskilled at their art, I  fear that might be referencing myself...it has been said that I  am present at more disasters than most, although I  have been the cause of only a few... miscasts happen to every practitioner,  truth be told.

"Many spelling errors have subtle effects. Often a spell simply fizzles out, or makes a popping sound, or does something small, like unfasten your bootlace when you were trying to lock a door. Then also, sometimes attempting to quash an evil ritual accidentally opens a gate to the nether regions and xauses a street collapse."

a bunch of guys I know bought a map from that Rugador guy. He apparently sold the
same map to a bunch of other teams, and not only was there nothing left when they got there,
they were attacked by another crew that came after them. Stuff like that happens.
Szuzana and me, we were with Haskell... he went to some vinyard or church or something,
 and we got rich killing trolls with the blue haired witch  who looks like Marie and her
walking statue. I got new gear, and have been picking up pocket change working for Liebert.
He paid bonuses in gear."

"I have a letter, from the Baroness of Veroigne, a woman named Lorraine Péquenaud. Apparently her brother is a knight, and married her father's captain of the guard, and they came here to seek their fortunes. I think that they would be ideal for this, but her husband, Baron Marcel Péquenaud specifically does not want them back in Veroigne, apparently because they were loved by the people, and he is not. In any case, a lot of the men at arms departed the barony rather than work for the new baron, who is now barely holding on to the place, and cannot spare folk to hunt down some monster that has been raiding the farms.  The purse is meager, really just a few days at scale for whoever hunts the thing down, but I know there is an abandoned castle near there that lost everyone to plague, and may never have been plundered.  I took no promotional fee for this."

Hmmm, many possibilities with little promised gain ... perhaps the castle is a worthwhile treasure ... is the guild interested in such a building?
I also suspect the Baron is in some trouble and we might be very unpopular if seen to be supporting him ...  where did you find out about this castle if I may ask.

"My family handled packing for a several wagons full of rice, grown near those parts, and the locals all made signs against the evil eye when we passed it.  The drawbridge was long gone, and the rusted porticullis was shut. The teamsters told me stories about how the lord had closed the gates to keep the plague from his household, but it got in anyway and the entire demesne had died. The village was in ruins, the fields fallow and overgrown with brambles. It was supposed to have been a wealthy place before the plague."

"The plague killed everyone not resistant, lucky, or with a cleric who could cure. All too often, the healers gave the last of their energy healing others and not protecting themselves. It caused a great crisis in faith, for priests of almost any screed could cure the plague equally, and may were spared who had no faith, although many were seen as diabolists, except in the south, where the diabolist family D'Ivoire lost many to the plague as well. These were the tales we heard in my youth. The plague was a few years before my time, but I grew up seeing how it ravaged the land, whole villages depopulated, both here and in Shevnia."

As the group speaks, some would probably notice the dwarf sitting along by himself at the next table.  As he gets up to approach the bar, he seems tall for a dwarf.  What's most noticeable is his girth, however.  At 270lbs, he is a very large man for 4' 5".  His well-polished armor shines in the light as he moves across the room.

After spending a moment at the bar, the dwarf approaches the table, where he pulls up a chair.  Putting down a large tankard of ale next to him, he speaks to the group.  "Greetings.  I am Balir Ironhide, and I have recently joined the guild from my home in Dvergholt.  As I don't know anyone here, I decided to come over and introduce myself.  As a peace offering I have purchased a round of ales for everyone, and some wine for the elves."

As he says the word Elves there is slight hardening of his tone, although not everyone would notice it.

"I heard you mention work.  To this point no one has offered me the chance to accompany them on an adventure.  If you would have me, I would like to offer my services as a warrior.  My axe is sharp, and ready for action.  "

OOC  Balir will purchase a round for the table, ale and wine as noted.

A sword dancer, you say? I am Kirpich, a priest of Grom, and this is Balir, a Dwarven warrior, and Syvanos, an Elven archer. Aethul the ranger expressed some interest as well, and Molag is a blade for hire if we need him or he wants to joins us, but I am not sure. Someone skilled with traps or the arcane would complete our group nicely.

Balir sits and watches the discussion among the people at the table.  As the new person, he does not know anyone, nor does he know of their capabilities.  Thus, he doesn't have anything to say.  The decision was not his to make, nor would he want to make it in this situation.  With nothing else to do, he takes a long pull from his tankard, and then motions for another one from the barmaid.

The barmaid refills the dwarf's ale, pauses a moment and shrugs... knowing better to expect a dwarf to tip.


The black clad goblin shrugs, and wanders off. Ludlow, is still staring at some cards he has laid out, and does not seem to have notice the conversation.

The one armed woman, and the adventurer with the fancy hat look at eachother and shrug. The fellow addressed as Snorri looks on expectantly, as does the mage with the long curly hair.
