Re: Deathtrap
Rosewood flys over to land on Leroy du Lac shoulder.

Fay are difficult to talk to and get along with.  Each sup group as it's own ways and customs.  If you say the wrong thing they will think your rude and refuse to talk to you.  What is high praise to one sub group is and insult to another.
Why do you think I spent most of my life with my books.  Books are never rude because they think you are when your not.


Rosewood had bad look on his face.

Anita, not wanting to split up the group, decides to get her gear she left with the security and wait outside.

you head toward the Northeastern side of the Artisanal district, where it joins dockside and redlight,  not far from the Cathedral and Twilight House. there is a squat round tower, looking rather like the Bastille. This is the Dismal tower.

Marcus observes everything that is going on.  Not having much to say hd follows Leroy around and drinks afew ales.  When they leave he gathers his gear and warily nods to the owl bear.

"Unless you are a member of the brotherhood of sages, access to the library is limited to the sages themselves."


occ membership is a perk, and usually goes with a poi t in research and speedreading

trust the resarch of the experts!

"Well.. We need a sage, who knows about the power of spoken names of faeries, and frost elves of the winter court..?"
Leroy opens his pouch, and looks at the others.

Did we ever get the cash from the sale of all the loot, or is that still in the process of Benito selling it?

This would be $649 each, with $4 left over, if we get Benito sell it on our behalf, though it may be a few days before we get paid.

...

the ring was worth a straight $1680


So the ring was sold straight away and divided 5 ways for $336 each, plus $299 each from our share, with $350 due in four days from when we sold it. That would give us $635 now, with $350 coming, minus anything spend, say on armour adjustments, purchases, etc. Sound right, boss?

Anita would loan $600 to her brother for his business, so she has about $35. She will offer $30 towards getting questions answered. Her question is

'What type of Fey are there in that Tavern, and what are their strengths and weaknesses?'

Massive sweeping questions were what she was aiming for, since technically it is still one question! A simple question is not worth $30 for an answer! She does have greed...

$30 is a discounted 4 hours of sage time.
The question you suggested could be answered with a 400 page thesis, which would take 2-3 days to read aloud to you, and would be the equivalent of dropping 4 points into Hidden lore:Faerie.

that would normally take about 400 hours of study time to accrue. specific questions only.

Anita would sigh at being told to be more specific.

"Ok then, what are the Fey in that tavern bigger than the Owlbear, and what are their strengths and weaknesses, other than iron?"
