"Follow me, Oly.  You two, stay here for a moment."

Ardenas moves over to Mancini, lowers his voice and leans close to one ear.

"Listen, I think we can do better.  These two guys have magic and weapons -- one has magical weapons!  Ludlow's too well known, too -- a half-blind idiot could spot that hair."

Mancini sighs. He leans back and whispers so that only Ardenas can hear him.

"It seems Ludlow has decided not to honor our agreement. That will have to be with later. For now, and it being on such short notice, I am not disinclined to using the two spellswords. However, I did kind of want to see how they fought in mock combat. I never buy a cow without sampling the milk."

Ludlow is easily  distracted and forgetful, and seems obsessivelt engrossed in reading his own fortune.

"The five of pentacles, opportunity missed, I wonder what that means..."

"That probably means you have screwed up, and are so busy reading that bullshit that you missed your chance to do something important..." Sederic comments idly.

"Well, if it comes to that, I'd suggest you ask them.  I don't know swordplay well enough to judge, but there are certainly those around who do."

" I was going to ask Norman to put them through a trial, and report back to me his impressions."

He looks around for a second, and not immediately seeing his favorite guard, comments, "Say, have you seen him? Usually, I can spot him, even in disguise, but I haven't seen him since we left the cultists second lair..."

Norman steps out of the kitchen, a bowl of hot brown in his hands.
He looks at the others, "What?"

Mancini smiles briefly when he sees Norman. "I was afraid something had happened to you, buddy. Especially with all these crazy cultists running about Northport."

He quietly informs Norman of his idea of testing Sederic and Grimildi in mock combat before accepting them in the group. "What do you think? Or do you know of a better way of testing the two? I just don't want myself or anyone else killed by these cultists and their dark desire," he said so that only Norman and Adrenas could hear.

To speed the plot along:

Norman escorts both men down to the arena, where they spar for several minutes, and then return.

He tilts his head first toward Grimaldi, and then a little later to Sederic.
"This guy is as good as I am. The one with the fancy sword is better. I have no idea how to gauge their spellcasting, but I guess they would be middle range, as neither has any guild standing beyond 'No Hassles'."

He turns to Adrenas. "Since Norman has vouched for their fighting abilities, and anyone has got to be better magically than Ludlow, they have the job. Gather the rest of the crew and let's meet in my apartment. We need to plot out how get into this demonic bookstore."

With that, Mancini gets up and goes to tidies up his apartment. He wanted as few ears as possible.hearing their next steps.

In reply to Aoife (msg # 62):

Sederic gives a start, obviously not having noticed the small Leprechaun.

"Well then, little one. You have something to chop up, I am your man! Lead the way...no, I am pretty sure I was born here. Say, do all Leprechauns have a pot of..."

The sudden glare from the smaller creatures ends that sentence right there.

Grimaldi watches the exchange between the leprechaun and the half-elf.
"If La Petite has a pot of gold mon frère, it's at the end of a rainbow. Ha ha ha!"

Aoife's disposition very quickly becomes noticeably dark and angry.

"Keep going with that train of thought and all you will get are storm clouds, including the lightning. And no I DO NOT have any pot of gold or I would not be looking at working for stupid humans!"

"Now, let's not start off on the wrong foot, here.  Aoife is a powerful mage, and the only time her height matters is when she needs to reach something on a high shelf -- and I'm pretty sure she has magic to solve that problem.

"In fact, I think the only one among us without some sort of magical ability, now, is Norman.  Not sure what Mancini's thing is -- I didn't think he was a priest, but I saw him cast an exorcism not long ago.  You two both have some magic, and I have just a little bit of Movement college -- not really my forte, but Master Albrecht said I should get trained once he detected I had the talent."
  He looks around suddenly, almost as if startled.

"Wait, then there's Oly.  But it's almost magical the way he can sneak around."

At the appropriate time, Mancini directs Norman to gather up the crew to discuss how to go about the task they were asked to do by the Haedereum.

"Oh Happy day, a-demon hunting we will go", Mancini mutters to himself as if a mantra.

Ardenas has been quite busy lately, going from the aborted orc-goblin war, to a zombie outbreak in Little Sahud, to demon hunting with Kalima, and hasn't had time to catch up on the less personal news.
