"Uh, sure."


The large fellow ambles over to the Wastrel's Hope.


Anita is immediately  noticed by the purists, one of whom flips her off, (from range).
Rosewood, unseen, follows them.

Anita returns the hand signal, hoping her distraction has at least assisted Rosewood, and returns to the others.

"You seen those guys before?" she asks Gordab.

"Dunno. Lotta them look the same."

As you approach the Wastrel's Hope, three men stagger out. They look like they were beaten badly, one is missing teeth.

"It was an unfair fight.
There were five of them, two in heavy armor,"

Says this kid with split knuckles and a black eye.
"They took our stuff!
 You want to give us a hand getting it back? They had some nice gear."

You notice he and the others have empty scabbards.

Leroy despises scum, and knows it, when he sees it. (quirk)
"Those two in heavy armor looked to be knights, and two women, and their dwarf bodyguard. I expect you knaves got what was coming to you!"

There are three. Two bulky, one a little leaner, with a swollen jaw and missing front teeth. His cl9ak is torn.

"What? Our word as men not good enough? Those women, they were saphique, and the knights, and probably the musician, all chetiffe. This is not natural! They stole our weapons!"

"Well, if he saw you three get robbed just now, I'm sure he'd understand why you're short on coin... Besides, we're on an assignment in this neighborhood, for the guild, and we want to ask him some questions about an attempted arson across the street at the boarding house...You know anything about that?" 
08:48, Today: Leroy du Lac rolled 12 using 3d6.  carousing ~ 14.
"If you answer some questions, and help enlighten us about some of the local toughs in this neighborhood, I'll buy you drinks, and maybe I can help you three find some honest work, as it seems you've just fallen on hard times."

"Fine, guess we can't help you much if we can't determine the facts from others then."

Anita will go down the street a little in the same direction as the other ruffians went, slowly, to see where these guys are headed if they leave.

The trio stagger away, occasionally glancing back in your direction, but seem to be heading in the opposite direction from the men you fought with.

The three make their way to a run down set of row houses, and enter, and you can hear them making their way up the stairs inside. The building is narrow and about three stories high, with an attic, and a visible basement apartment. It looks kind of seedy, and leans into the adjacent buildings.
The basement appears occupied, and the first floor has a tailor's shop adjacent to the stairs.

Sure Anita could take care of herself, and that everyone knew where to meet back, Leroy sought out the barkeep and was ready to socialize and drink, in the meanwhile.
"Come on, let's get a table, and I'll order us some wine!"
