Brandoin arched an eyebrow in Bes' direction a slow smile spreading along his lips.

"Well there is that eh Master Bes? Slay'n ah bunch o' goblins could nay hurt methinks. Why the way ye swung yon axe at the Ring Fort, I'd bet we could have them cleared in no time."

Brandoin then quaffed his ale as though it was a mighty foe to be slain itself. Wiping his mouth with the back of his hand, he continued.

"If this... this Frar is it? Well if he is ah rogue and needs be dealt with it is best we see for ourselves. I"m sure we'd be able to find out if this dwarf is fair or foul. Count me in Berangar but not until the morrow. This ale is command'n me immediate attention ye see."

"I know not this Frar and his nature is of no concern of mine." Bern says when he is done taking a long swig from his mug. He focus his ash colored gaze at Bes "My friend had asked my help and that is all that is important for me. Should this Frar reveal himself as a blackguard than we will handle him as together."

Bern has seen how Bes placed her hand on her axe, it was beyond rude and uncalled for yet he had made no mention of it as his friend, showing his wisdom, ignored the dwarf temper and prevented further provocation. Bern respected that and followed his friend wishes.

"Dear friends, are you ready for dinner?  Do you wish for some eel in wine sauce?  Your beds are ready, and we will have breakfast for you tomorrow early as requested."

Andwise quickly focuses on Agatha, welcoming the diversion, "Indeed we are, bring it on dear lady".

"Friends, Mistress Brandybuck has won prizes back in the Shire for her 'eel in wine sauce'" He smiles in rememberance, "It is still much regarded, and there are many at home who mourn the decision by the Brandybucks to migrate eastwards"

Without further word Andwise rushes back to the table, and begins the serious busness of preparing to eat. He hoped that the mention of food would calm the situation, for as Grandpa Rumble had said, on many occasions, 'it is a hard thing to bear malice on a full stomach'.

Berangar nods and heads for the table, "I'll drink -- and eat! to that!" he exclaims.

As he seats himself at the table, he addresses Agatha, "You set a fine table, Mistress Brandybuck.  My lord Beorn is interested in keeping the roads open for free folk; if we have our way of it, perhaps travel will become easier and safer, and you may have yet more visitors to your pleasant Inn."

Brandoin bowed his head and lifted his tankard in a toast.

"Me thanks Mistress Brandybuck. Ye do indeed set ah fine table. I be most grateful for all ye've done for me... well all o' us. Tis ah nice gesture n' nay one I take fer granted."

Brandoin then turned his gaze back toward his companions.

"Well then? Shall w be off on the morrow. 'Ere the break ah day as it were?"

Mouth full of eel, Andwise raises a glass of wine towards Brandoin, as a polite sign of his agreement.

Agatha's eyes pop open:  "The break of day…  what?  Well, leaving after 2nd breakfast… all right, then.  I will pack your lunch."

Shalronel eats then thanks the hostess, "Thank you for the wonderful meal Mrs Brandybuck." she says, "Please excuse me but I feel a longing to be outside." she finishes as she gets up from the table and moves toward the door.  Once outside she breaths deeply, worried about the animosity that her fellowship is showing towards each other.

Beandoin nodded his thanks to his host once more. The dwarf was truly grateful for all that had been done fro the Fellowship thus far. He found himself really liking the Hobbits and really wanted them to succeed.

"Mistress Agatha? Tis there aught we may be do'n for ye before we leave upon the morrow? Ye know all ye 'ave ta do is ask."

As Brandoin saw the elf leave for the outside air, the dwarf rose and excused himself. He gathered his pipe as he went. Once he made the place where Shaironel was he cleared his throat.

"Excuse me Mistress?" he said puffing his pipe. "Hope I'm nay disturb'n ye. Needed sum air meself. I've found ah gud pipe can settle yer nerves n' yer mind. Care for ah bowl Mistress?"

Smiling at Agatha, Berangar suggests, "We might leave after daybreak, but it is doubtful we can tarry for second breakfast.  Those of us accustomed to second breakfast," he spares a friendly glance at Andwise, "will have to have it on the road." 


OOC:

18:53, Today: Berangar rolled a total of 13 (12 if weary): a failure using the The One Ring with a target of 14 with rolls of 6 (Feat Die), 6, 1. Lore.

Dang!  Missed by 1!  Not sure if it's worth spending Hope... it would make it a great success rather than a failure.

Agatha sighs, upon hearing Berangar's words:  "Aye, hasty hasty hasty, always hasty…  well, I will pack the second breakfast too".
Thinking of Brandoin's words:  "Well, Master, if you do bring more travelers down from the North, that is fine.  Just tell them to use the door mat and wipe their boots off, and you'll make me happy."

At Berengar's words concerning 'on the road second breakfasts' Andwise winces, a mixture of sadness and inevitability. However he says nothing and busys himself filling another pipe.

As he finishes his meal, Berangar ponders for over his ale, then asks his companions, "It occurs to me, perhaps we might hire a pony to carry baggage on our journey?  I have garnered little wealth, but perhaps, if we pool our resources, we might accomplish it?"

Shalronel smiles as Brandoin joins her, "Thank you for the offer friend, I do not partake, but you are welcome to join me." she says sitting and listening to the world around her.

Bés gestures vaguely. "Ponies attract wolves... and worse. No match for a strong back and sturdy boots," she grunts softly. "Though 'tis no object to a Dwarf, money, if your heart's set on hiring ponies."



Having a Standard Of Living of Rich, Bés can hire ponies for herself and two companions.

Berangar nods, "Aye, they might, I don't think we all need to ride, as I don't think we are in a great hurry.  Just a pony or two for baggage would do; there is plenty of forage along the way in this green country for them."  He shrugs, "But, as our company decides, I don't mind; I would vote for a pony or two, if we can manage it."

In reply to Shalronel (msg # 74):

Brandoin gave the beautiful elf a nod and smile.

"If ye e'er change yer mind just let me know. Aye! We'll soon be off n' ah Fellowship once more. Now then... I could nay notice yer worry. There's nay a need ta worry Mistress. Ye see it's our differences that make us the stronger. Well now, we'll disagree from time ta time sure but I think we can overcome these n' be the stronger as well. Not that I like argument mind but it'll happen sure as rain."

He hitched his thumb over his shoulder.

"What happened back there was jus ah disagreement but Bes will come along n' she'll do her part I'll wager."

Bern spend the time considering what he knew about the area they were traveling into rubbing his chin but his mind was ablank "I would not mind a pony or two." he adds "I think they would be worth their trouble and not all of us have the broad backs of a dwarf."

OOC:
23:46, Today: Bern Asheye rolled a total of 12 (10 if weary): a failure using the The One Ring with a target of 14 with rolls of 10 (Feat Die), 2. Journey Advantage (Lore).

"Oh, we have fine ponies to let in our stables, thanks to Frier who saved them from the Orcs when…", she shudders. "Well, anyhow, I do think you should take a brace of ponies.  Maybe Peony and Marigold?  You can put your bags on their sturdy backs, and carry more food and you shall be happy, and it will not cost much, of course", she smiles, happy for the business.

Andwise's memory flashes back to the long, uncomfortable hikes of the earlier adventure. Even after all this time he feels a slight sting in hishoulders where the straps of his backpack had almost worn a groove. Alongside this was the memory of transporting the body of Iwgar back from the ring fort following that deperate fight with the Goblins.
"I would vote for a pony or two, you never know when we might need one"

"Your offer is most appreciated, if you will not be needing the ponies here?"  Berangar responds to Agatha.  His expression darkens, some, "And, Bes is right.  While we will do all that we can to take the best care of the ponies, there are dangers out in the Wild.  If anything should happen to them, we would reimburse you, of course.  But if it alters your decision, I would understand." 


OOC:  If it makes a difference, Berangar can invoke his Trusty trait that they will, in fact, be sure to take good care of the ponies.

"No, tis fine I think.  We will just charge a little sum for the use of our two fine ladies, and hope they come back in fine shape".

OOC:  good idea for the Trusty trait

Agatha watched the Fellows leave in the early Spring morning, these Folk who had saved her family Inn.
"They are proud, valiant and faithful," she thought, "well, I do say, they could be Hobbits the lot of them."
Suddenly, she spun around and ran to her kitchen:  "My scones…".

OOC:  closing this thread, then.  End of the First Fellowship Phase
