Mancini and several others reconvene at the guild to evaluate their booty and discuss strategy for meeting the Hadereum's goal.

Grimaldi sits a small distance away from the others, listening and watching intently.

Sedaric enters the guild with Grimaldi, but approaches Mancini as he enters.

"Hey there. Hear of any work?"

Aoife, significantly smaller than most, stays hidden behind her larger companions...

"So, once we take on the new help we need -- and I'm with Oly, in preferring it not be Ludlow -- how exactly would we go about finding a shop that's never in the same place twice, without a demon hunter's senses?"

Ardenas creases his brow for a moment, trying to recall if he's had his bowl of hot brown for the day, then shakes his head, grabs a bowl, and gets in line.

Aoife takes her tiny bowl and joins him. Half now, half later, she figures, will be plenty.

An assortment of scurrilous characters areabout, including the star spangled Ludlow the mage... There are also two armed figures who greeted Mancini as he entered.

Oly keeps quiet, gets his bowl and sits with Ardenas and Aoife.

Ardenas looks up from picking the rare bits of meat out of the stew (to be charitable), to see who's talking to Mancini -- he'd seen no one familiar except Ludlow.

"We just happen to be between jobs...So, why don't you tell us about your situation?" Grimaldi said casually, and placed his fingertips together.

Sederic will approach Ludlow, clearly a mage, and ask him about the ancient coins, and where they might be obtained...

After a short rest, Mancini made his way down to discuss guild matters related to the the Haedereum job. It bothered him that Kalima had been banished... She had grown on him like a fungus, and in the process, seemed to help unlock certain unexamined abilities in him.

As he entered two individuals asked Mancini about work. "There is always work at the Guild. Just keep your mouth shut and your ears open to find it", he replies , before finding his way to Ludlow and the other assorted associates.

When he sees Ludlow Mancini's face sours briefly before turning unreadable once again. "Long time, no see, my friend."

Ardenas continues dividing his attention between Mancini, now talking to Ludlow, and his bowl.

"This would be easier if they'd either put more meat in this stuff, or less.  A little less and I could just eat it with a pretty clear conscience.  A little more and I'd just find something else, or be sure to show up when the porridge is up."

He looks at the tiny pile of tiny meat bits beside his bowl.

"I never should have let Master Rethki talk me into becoming vegetarian."

Grimaldi looks at Sederic and looks back at the other group, slightly amused at the brush-off. "Let's just sit back and see what sort of fools they fall in with. Maybe they'll end up like Broderick and company.." Grimaldi folded his arms, and leaned back in his chair.

"Fortunately for my appetite, the vow I took isn't so restrictive.  I vowed not to eat meat.  And because I foresaw problems, I negotiated the vow not to forbid eating hidden meat, or meat I can't see.  Other animal products, like milk, cheese, and eggs, not included.  Fish is a gray area, but I wasn't a big fish fan anyway.

"Master Rethki said it would help with my magic, but now I think it was just an elf's version of a practical joke.

"Master Albrecht never said anything about diet, other than constantly harping about balancing something he called 'carbs' against fats and 'protina' -- I never did get the explanation of what 'carbs' and 'protina' were, but there was a list of foods that provide each, and meat was on the 'protina' side.  Lots of other stuff, too, though -- eggs, dairy, beans, nuts.  So, as long as I get a chunk of cheese, a couple eggs, or a bowl full of beans of some kind every day, lack of meat won't weaken me.

"And this hot brown has just enough to leave the taste, so every day I get my bowl and pick out the meat bits.

"You want these?"
