"Hmm. Might need multiple trips, then.  One load of bricks, one of sand, one of lumber, not sure how much lime..."  He pats his purse.  "Hope this stuff is cheapish."

Benito estimates that the repairs to keep the housing at Status-2 squalor would be several hundred, to elevate them to status 0 a few thousand.

Putting a lock on a door costs about $50, and replacing a bronze gate (he heard that somewhere, one was missing) would cost about $250. As needed, and if funded, he can hire laborers to haul large volumes of wood, mortar ingredients, and bricks.

Benito will pass this information on to the owners of the house, as requested or when he meet those he knows to be interested.

"Sure, Leroy.  Say, Benito, we'll have to discuss what needs doing the worst when Jareth gets back from talking to the sages.  I'm inclined to think some of the underground work should be first, so stuff above doesn't collapse again, but I'm not a decision maker, I just kill stuff as needed.

"Of course. I will go and look into it."

Should he make any rolls to look into what needs doing underground?

"Maybe shouldn't go alone, Benito.  The basement connects into the undercity, and there's some dangerous stuff down there.  You've met Clarence's spider friend, the one the size of a big dog?  We met one easily ten times that weight down there, not to mention some other unpleasantness.  I'd suggest waiting until at least two or three of us can go with you."

Clarence chuckles.

"If you are thinking of being untrustworthy, then yes, it is a threat. If you are planning, as you say, to work with us, then you should be glad there are others watching your back. So tell me, is it a threat?"

"Then all we need to know is that you keep your word. The talk about spiders..."

he pats his 8-legged friend.

"...I thought that was obvious. Better than a guard dog."

"So, how do you feel about a worm big enough to fill a sewer tunnel and three or four blocks long?  I've seen part of one slithering past a gate.  I'm very serious, you might survive a slorn or a couple maned rats, but there's stuff down there that makes them look like freshly born kittens.

In reply to Benito Drake (msg # 12):

As Benito has yet to enter any space beyond the basement of a row house, and observe the partial street collapse from above, he is quite uncertain about what needs doing below ground, although buttressing whatever is on the other side of the pit being filled with rubble and gravel right now would be a good idea.


The group is a bit large, and might benefit by a breakdown into smaller sets; the team currently working on the er shopping expedition, and the newjacks soon arriving, who may well become your new neighbors.

OOC Whenever you get time, we can sort out the living arrangements via the Nodwin line.  Nothing critical or even pressing.  Just suggesting that we can more easily divide things if the living arrangements are decided.  Doesn't even need to be done on screen, I'm happy to make rolls and handle it in the background if that's easier/more expedient for you.  It seems to be the next logical progression is all.

Oh, and...  I thought we weren't telling the newb's about the underground access?  Maybe a character quirk or disadvantage in play perhaps...?

"Nodwin, maybe you and Clarence and I could show Benito where the basement meets up with the collapse.  We need to get that shored up before the fill winds up bringing down the rest of our block -- in fact, it probably can't wait for Benito's work to get the first hack at it.  I thought I heard you have some earth magic?"

OOC:Nodwin, we were, but I needed a reason for Benito not to go in the basement unescorted -- which I understood to be of higher priority than keeping secret the mere fact of an opening nearly any basement could have, or gain with little warning.

The problem Mario, is that the collapse is literally one room over from the Bone Gate.
