If after his examination of the area turns up no more graffiti, he will head back toward's Ashbury's place.

In reply to Grimaldi (msg # 81):

Grimaldi sees another bit of grafitti, thistime in charcoal on a whitewashed wall, that has one phrase, another appears on a nearby building:

WHY SWEAT
           WHY CRY
             WHY BLEED


      NO ONE LISTENS

WE HAVE WHAT YOU NEED

"Hmm.. there's more here. Let us not be hasty, and leave the area yet.. I feel we are close!" Grimaldi will approach the wall, in question...

Ardenas follows Grimaldi, looking around for anywhere he recalls having an undercity entrance, or anything that looks out of place.

"That certainly looks aimed to attract the down and out."

Once again, there is chalking on pavement heading around the block and into an alley.

NEED SOMETHING?

          JUST ASK

NO CONTRACTS

          JUST A TASK

Grimaldi spots the new graffiti.
"So... That's what they're doing.. They use customers as their agents of choas. I wonder how many "Faustsians", as it were, they have roaming the city.."

"See, that's just the thing.. Endeavors of this particular nature, usually involve contracts. There must be some dangerous trick of sorts, even accepting doing a task for these kind. So, who's volunteering to do their task? I'd like to keep my soul, merci beaucoup!"
Grimaldi smiled wryly within his cowl.

"Maybe they've found a way to enforce a verbal contract?  My dad used to say a verbal contract isn't worth the paper it's written on, but if you have the power of the demon realms behind you, maybe it's enforceable."

"I wonder how much my limited magical ability would -- oh, wait, if they've made it like a spell scroll, anyone with any kind of magical talent can cast it, as long as they can read it.  And I recall Master Rethki talking about demon summoning being far easier than it ought to be.

"He said it was probably because the demons have done everything possible in their own realm to prepare the way."

anyone with demon lore, make a roll. Occultism at -4 will serve also.

"Perhaps, I should go in, along with Sederic and Grimildi. By now,they would have heard about my nascent magic abilities. If I play my cards right, we can have them thinking I am a corrupt Guild leader taking some short cuts to the top. Sederic and Grimildi will be my hired goons."

He pauses for a second. "We definitely need to even the score if there is a demon in the mix. While we deal with the shop, I suggest we find some items to get Kalima back to this realm. Aoife, you still have that silk Kalima wanted on order? Also check out the area near the Temple Hill to see if anyone is worshipping Kalima's panthenon."

Mancini grabbed a pear from his napsack,and between bites asked for thoughts to his budding plan.

(Ooc: Strategy 13 roll passes. Area knowledge NP 15 roll passes.)

"Unless they scry heavily for security... That might work. In the fact, the whole outfit, could be run by kids and amateurs, as these things often turn out."

"So, you, Grimaldi, and Sederic follow the clues to try to find the shop, while Aoife and I -- and Oly? -- look for items to help bring Kalima back and cults that might be willing and able to summon her?"

[Private to GM: 17:40, Today: Ardenas Barehand rolled 14 using 3d6.  Occultism (10-4=6) re ease of demon summoning.]

"I do still have the scarf. There are magical ways of enforcing contracts, such as the oath spell, which I bet they use. You don't need me to be able to call for backup?"

"What exactly is the plan, when we find them? Are we to slay them, and ransack the place and burn it? Plant Something there??"
Grimaldi asks, barely above a whisper.

OOC: I think that was being combined with seeking items to link to Kalima.

Yes, those two items were bound. So far, we have picked up the dress, and what other items have been settled on?

She wore: red coral bracelets
          Garlands of marigolds
She has: four arms, three eyes, flames for hair, rushes, a spear.
