In reply to Percival (msg # 26):

James recollects a dive tavern called The Wastrel's Hope in the redlight district that hosted dart games and had a bartender that matched the description. It is only a fifteen minute walk away.

At this early hour of the day, the taverns of Redlight are serving a little hair of the dog to last nights over exuberant patrons, and early ales to day drinking ner-do-wells.
A yeasty scent of stale ale greets you from the door, and you can see the beefy barman wiping glasses with a dirty rag.

James enters the tavern, and explains the situation at hand to the barkeep, asking for any information on anyone who might have knowledge of what happened.

"Sir, you have my word that no blood will be spilled. However, I need to keep these axes on my person should the bandits decide to attack first."

The bartender nods, and takes your axes and places them below the counter.
"Check the back room. I don't want that kind of rowdies in here. The league would drop my place, and I need the business of the dart players."

The dwarf turns to the rest of the committee n room where two people are nervously playing darts.

James will quietly enter and look for anything that looks similar to what was stolen.

The common room of the tavern has a number of benches and beat up looking tables, and two nervous looking dart players, who each have a mug of ale and a trencher of half eaten stew on one of the tables.
There is a door into a back room.

Within the room are a trio of rough looking young men seated around a table, with the jewelry and wand on the table.
To one side is Hugo's lute.

As you enter, they flip the table and step behind it.

James prepares his fists if a fight would break out. "Gentleman, I believe I need to take those items from you."

"The hell you say!"

You notice that they are still wearing their swords...

...not that that matters much with your
heavy armor! Your gauntlets not only let you parry weapons with DR 5, but they allow James to punch for 1d, and Percival can do 1d-1 with his mailed fist.

James and Percival will both move to disarm the bandits, maybe take their swords until the two surrender.

Two of the ruffians draw shortswords.
One looks cheap, the other looks nice.

"I know the truth. Lower your weapons, and no one has to be hurt. If not, well..." his pause should hopefully tell then to stand down.

Not wanting to give up their ill gotten gains, they press it.

The tall thin one immediately throws a large knife at Elodie, but seems surprised when it just misses her. the other two have swords up, and the knife thrower as well ( he seems to be ambidexterous)
