Aegis regards Dne with a look that could be mistaken for malicious.  With a bit of a scowl, he'll respond "Sur, if ya cin put down uh tankerd uv ale.  Den I'z will."

His words aren't too slurred, so Dne can probably make out what he was saying.

OOC If Dne wants to chug down an ale, then Aegis will give it a try.  That's what carousing is all about.  Communal stupidity, promoted by alcohol.

Sure, he’ll chug down the ale, in spite of the constraints imposed by his bird mask.  Do you open your mouth now?

Aegis will open his mouth, after seeing that Dne followed through on his part of the bargain.

OOC I have a very bad feeling about this...

Aegis belches right in Dne's face.  Loudly, and it smells pungently of ale, combined with his lunch (sauerkraut and beets).

He then closes his mouth long enough to swallow a bit of bile, and washes it down with more ale.

"Would you like another round, birdbrain?"

The ogrekin's agent shakes her head at this tomfoolery.
"If the targets are unable to investigate, the payout is $100 gold coins (8k) plus whatever goods you retrieve."


Keep in mind a days pay is only $120

"The local rep was incapacitated four days ago, and we suspect there was dsily communication... so three days from the capitol, some two weeks away, presumably they will pass through Sonne, which tends to be receptive to them, as they keep any diabolism quiet."

Dne seems puzzled that no one responds from the bottom of Aegis’s stomach.  He returns his attention to the matter at hand.

Deanna fails to hide her disgust at the behavior of some.

"Perhaps the extra time is a bonus, allowing us to reduce their numbers on the way. Pay sounds acceptable, but do we have evidence of our employees for the guild, in case of a double cross?"

Aegis is confused at Dne's behavior, but instead of saying anything to the birdman he instead says flatly "Smrt" to Reanna.

OOC Any Simpsons reference is a win.

Aegis orders a round for everyone at the table, whether they wanted it or not.

He tries to pat the barmaid on the rump as she walks by, but misses, and gets a glare for his trouble.

"Thank you.  I will join you for a round, but I cannot drink too much, the Architect requires the worker's minds clear and hands steady."

Dilandua partakes, but not heavily.

Aegis comments "Ben expdble me whol leef.  Nutin new.  Wemon, wurk, all da same."

He washes the sad comment down with a large swig of ale, seemingly oblivious to the deeper context.

There are two types of people in this world, Dne thinks.  Those who are expendable, and those who can walk on air.

"This is strictly not a guild operation, more of a friend of a friend situation. Anything more about them, you might ask Spielgud, as he as some acquaintance with the client, and as a wiz who teaches spells to anyone with coin, it would be safe to say that he has a dog in this fight."

Aegis is paying at least some attention to this, although he has taken to flipping his knife in the air to see if he can land it point first in the table.  Only when the barkeeper is not paying attention.

OOC  This guy must be a good ballplayer.  Is that how he got the name "Spielgud"?
If he's a fan of Guns and Roses, can we call him "Dr. Spielgud"?
Can we assume he plays well with others?

And, is this earning Aegis another quirk or disad...?

OOC:  He is good at magic which is why his name is 'Spell Good'.

OOC I stand corrected, you are correct.  And in German, spiel is "play".
