 a few recent arrivals have stopped off at the guild, and are contemplating staying someplace away from the rougher crowd. The general membership consists of mercenaries, scoundrels, mountebanks and rogues of every stripe.
Your weapons checked at the door with master Aemon, you sit reservedly at a table,  eating the bowls of hot brown that your membership can get you.

A small little creature about 6 inches high sits on windowsill of one of the high up windows.
He is eating his small bowl of hot brown and watching the room studying all that going on in it.

Wiley surrenders his saber with only a small comment that he can hardly use it anyway, and wears it only for appearances, being fresh off the farm as he is.

He collects his bowl and finds a place to sit where the table is not too sticky, and pulls out a deck of cards and starts playing solitaire, shuffling clumsily between rounds as he watches the crowd.

Leroy headed into the main hall, and checked his multiple weapons in with Aemon.
Strolling past the halberdiers, he headed for the dining area, and grabbed a wooden bowl and spoon, and stood in the serving line.

The unloaded crossbow surrendered, Anita comes in for her free meal. Seeing some familiar faces, she goes over to join LeRoy.

"Any news of work? I am not even going to ak about the food...but I have not heard of anyone dying from it..."

"Hello again, Mademoiselle Drake. I haven't heard of anything as of late... I hope I find something soon. I'd like to move out of here as soon as possible, like you and your cousin, have.

Leroy watched as the hot brown was ladled into his bowl with an audible splat, followed by a piece of bread, unceremoniously tossed on top.
"Mmmm.. L'amour que brun chaud! Haw haw haw!"

Marcus hands over his quiver, bow and long knife.  He throws back the dusty hood of his cloak and walks over to where they are dishing out the brown.  He takes a bowl sniffing it and shrugging as if to say he has had worse. He scans the room and finds a seat in the corner away from others to to eat his meal.

A goblin, wearing a gilt administrator guild badge, breaks off a conversation with a large fellow of ogrish extraction and a young woman wearing brass knuckles, and makes his way toward Wiley, looking i tently at his array of cards.

"Bub, you know you don't have ta play alone. I know plenty of games dat are floating right now."

"I'm curious about whatever this Nodwin fellow is serving for dinner. Mario said he conjures food! I've never tried conjured food...I wonder if it's any good. You know, I'd like to move into one of those houses, in your neighborhood. With some work, it could be a nice place, especially if we all work together." Leroy, received his bowl, and strolled with Anita to find a place to sit...

"Conjured food is much like gruel. It can sustain you but anything is probably better tasting. Yeah, Benito will work to build up those places, so I am guessing once he is done there will be places there, but it really is not my call. Best I can do is find some cash...for which I, like you, probably need some work."

She finds a seat to eat what she has with LeRoy.

Finding a place, Leroy sits down.
"So, tell me about you and your cousin. Where are you from?"

Leroy smiled into his bowl as he removed the crust of bread. The Brown was hot, and hadn't developed a skin. "C'est bon aujourd'hui !"

Wiley looks up at the goblin. "Really? Real games? Back on the farm my Uncle Babar used to talk about real gambling, how much fun it is, now I get the chance to actually try it? Where do I sign up?"

The goblin eyes your kit, as if appraising how much your shirt would go for if you lost it.

"Deres a place a few blocks up called the Wastrel's Hope dat has a card game most evenings, along wit dart games ta bet on."

"Well, what is there to say? He is a good man, who got into trouble with those with less scruples than he or hos father. They killed his father, and we escaped. He sees the world through eyes that consider everyone as good or evil. But he considers justice highly, maybe too highly, given how it has been denied him.

What about you? Tell me about yourself?

"I'm sorry for your kin...Do you have enemies about? Me, I've just left home, after this year's planting. Mercenary work is what we do, and we're known at Manoir du Lac, for two generations now, since the plague, as being some of the best fighting men to be found outside the city!
My grandfather built our home from the remains of a monster stronghold, on the lake. His party cleared them out, and now it's a green and peaceful place, again. There's always work to be done there, but I won't be inheriting the property, as I'm the youngest.. No, I have to make my own way now, and I shall!"

Leroy said with gusto, as he broke his bread in half.

The small figure carefully picks up his empty bowl.
Then with a small skip launches himself into the air.
After a minute the creature lands on the table close to Anita Drake and Leroy du Lac plates.
In a graceful, flowing single movement it sits down with it empty bowl in its lap.
It also has a small scroll which it gets out of its pocket.
It looks up a little nervous smile on it's face.  Looking between Anita and Leroy waiting.

Leroy was about to take his first spoonful, when he noticed the pixie land on their table.
"Ho! Hello there, wee-one. What have you got there?"
Leroy moved his face lower, curious to see what the scroll-bearing pixie wanted with them.

Rosewood looks hopefully at Leroy du Lac.
I am new to the lands of humans and I am not sure how this guild thing works.
This scroll clearly proves I am a member of the guild and that I am skilled in magical lore.
It is even signed by the head of the Arcane chapter.

Rosewood looks down at his bowl.
The thing is a pixie alone in this big people lands is likely to get squashed if he is not careful.
From what I can make out, both of you are guild members looking for work.
That you may be looking to create a team together.
I was hoping you may require someone with my type of skills to join you?


He looks back up to them.
I am sorry if this is not how I should go about finding a group of adventures to join but my experience of humans is limited.


OOC:-
The little creature come across with an odd mixture of uncertainty and confidence.  He is clearly not shy or reserved as one may have expected.  There is a confidence in him that make you feel he will not run at first the sign of danger.  He is clearly however having to deal with an environment and situation he not very familiar with.


The pixie is also wearing a  small numbered, sigil marked tin badge like each of you wear as members of the guild. The bagdges you wear are traceable by the seeker spell, as they are inscribed with a mystic mark.

"No worries. You're doing the best you can, I expect. Being assertive when one is so small, is a sign of pluck, and has my respect. I know little of magic, why don't you show and tell us what you can do?"

Leroy said, as he resumed eating.

Rosewood nods.
His smile is a little more settled.
Do you have a torch.  Or an item you like to use as a torch.
I am told a lot of adventuring humans do is done down in tunnels and dark places.

Rosewood turns to Anita Drake.
Thank you.  He says.
Then the reality of the question she ask hit him.
He looks down at his bowl again.
He frowns at it.  Shaking his head.
My older cousin is a very, very important Pixie in the royal court.
I err.  Well I did something to upset him and that upset the rest of the royal court.
It was an accident.  I did not mean to do it.  I not a dark Pixie.  I never will be.
But I was.  How do I put it.  Asked to leave.

He looks up at her.  His face is very sad.
If I become a Hero and learn more magic.  I hope one day I will find a way to do something that allow me to return.  I am sure.
