"Can you describe the escorts, and the agents themselves?"

Aegis sits off to the side as this discussion takes place.  He has ale in his hand to drink, and some coins to flip in the air.  That is enough for him.  He doesn't need to know any more than that.  When it comes right down to it, someone will tell him what to kill.  He doesn't need to track all those painful details.  Not that he could, anyway, in his slightly inebriated state.  Still, he'll at least try to listen in, so he has a general idea of what's going on.

"Their brutes and agents wear red, the ones who cast spells wear more colors, orange, yellow, green. I don't know a lot more about them, except that their device is a pentacle with something latin written around them."






Edit it is something Christine would have recognized, had she been here.

"Pentacles with LATIN inscribed around them?  That is so tacky!  Where did they get those, the one copper bin at the magical surplus store?"

I'll bet the Latin isn't even correct, he adds in thought.

There is a subdued knock and a slight figure in leathers slides into the room.

"Miss Madeline... I could not help to overhear... there is a mission... to kill people.  I would like to join."

After a loud belch, Aegis stands up.  He's a little wobbly due to his inebriated state, but flatly states "Aegis, bowman" before sitting back down heavily.  His unsteady feet are balanced out by how quickly the mug of ale is back in his hand.

“You enjoy killing people?  You don’t say, Dilandua!  What an astonishing coincidence.  So do I!  Maybe we should hang out.”

"So we have myself, a scout, Dilandua, a spearwoman, Dne, our magical protection, and Aegis, our swordsman. We are out to deal with a bunch of mages in multi-coloured coats escorted by brutes in red. Madeline, do we have any idea of numbers? Should we get a healer, or is that superfluous?"

[OOC: This sounds like a job for Gareth too! Seedy, questionable morality, dealing with mages who like to tell him what to do...but no, all my mages are busy, so I will send in the thief!]

“What the sparrow calls murder, the owl calls justice.  While the eagle calls it dinner.”

Dne suddenly stops speaking, as though concerned he is giving away too much free profundity.

Oof

Waiting on the other group to pick their healer, the other comes to you to work with you. One is a social justice cleric that dislikes elitist organizations, the other is an unlicensed alchemist.

OOC I have played with alchemists and herbologists before, but it's almost a black box unto itself.  I might consider one down the road sometime.  Might even consider the one you wrote up if they go with the other group.
