Re: Chapter 1: Into the Haunted Forest
Wang begins to clean himself up as much as possible. He ties the javelins given to him by Marek together with some loose fabric from his tattered clothes and attaches them to his backpack.

There was never any mention of gord or any other compensation for these items other than crearing names. Wang never heard any mention of such thing. Onry that mister Nod wourd be given access to professor ribrary. Is Wang correct in thinking this mister Nod?

Re: Chapter 1: Into the Haunted Forest
I understand that you do not value material things and wealth the way I do, Wang.  But we just nearly got ourselves killed by viscious animals and a group of mercaneries for some items that have considerable value to me!  Our names didn't need to be cleared.  We were set up and I will find a way to make that sheriff pay for that.

You may not need compensation, Wang, but Marek certainly does!

Re: Chapter 1: Into the Haunted Forest
Wang understand, Wang said this arr burrshit from beginning. Wang just repeating what Wang heard. Sherrif say party owe this to professor for destroying shroud. Wang did not hear professor wirr buy items if party retrieve. Wang definitery berieve in honest pay for day work. Wang just think this not that kind of dear.

Re: Chapter 1: Into the Haunted Forest
Marek relaxes his stance abit.

I understand that, Wang.  But that doesn't mean we shouldn't try to get compensated for our troubles.  I need coin for what I need to do.

Re: Chapter 1: Into the Haunted Forest
Nod stands up, his face visibly relieved.

"Fletcher, I am so glad you are unharmed. Thank you for risking you neck to provide reconnaissance. Sounds like this deal may still work out after all. I have to agree with Wang. Despite our hardship, we had a deal. We must do our best to abide. However, if there is another deal to be struck, It will be to our advantage next time."

Nod gathers his things.

"Well, I guess I better get in there and close this deal. I'd like to take the codex, as a sign of good faith."

Nod unloads any other items associated with this deal onto the bear skin.

"Gentlemen, wish me luck. If I wind up in distress, I am fairly certain I can me enough ruckus that you'll know it."

Re: Chapter 1: Into the Haunted Forest
Fletcher tosses the wand onto the collection of items on the bear skin.

If the professor only needs the items to make his shrouds and it is not required to destroy the items in the process, then I think the items should be rightfully returned to us when his task is achieved. The items were all left abandoned, and we risked our lives to retrieve them. I better go with you Nod. I told the sheriff I would return.

I'll leave the horse with you two. That will make it more effortless for you to make a quick exit if necessary.


Fletcher retrieves his bow and rapier, tips his hat.

Gentlemen.

Re: Chapter 1: Into the Haunted Forest
Marek rolls up the items in the bear skin and ties it off.  He flips it across his shoulder and checks that his crossbow is locked and loaded.  Of course it is.

Marek waits until Nod and Fletcher are just out of sight and signals Wang to follow him to the inn's back door.

04:49, Today: Marek Kreegan rolled 12 using 1d20+5.  Stealth.

Once at the back door, he carefully puts his ear to the door.  He checks the nob/latch to see if it is locked.

Re: Chapter 1: Into the Haunted Forest
The sun is low in the sky and the shadows are long.  Nod and Fletcher enter the Inn.  The tap room is a bit more busy and there several more customers.  Sheriff Blunnde and Professor Krane both look up.  "You've returned!", exclaims the professor.  "Were you successful?"  The sheriff leans back and crosses his boots on the table.  The professor continues, "Oh this is so exciting!   Did you strike a deal with the druid?"

Re: Chapter 1: Into the Haunted Forest
Good day gentlemen. Professor, my friend Mr. Nod needs to speak with you at length. I only need to speak to you briefly, so I'll get straight to the point. You need the items for your shrouds. We can give you the items for that purpose, but when you are done, we are going to need them back. Certainly you do not intend to destroy them, so, yes, when you are finished, we need them back.

, Today: Fletcher Green rolled 10 using 1d20+7.  Diplomacy.

Re: Chapter 1: Into the Haunted Forest
He smiles and nods, "Of course.  I assumed the druid would want you to return them with the second shroud I will make for him.  Willowroot surely will want the relics of the King to be returned without delay.  That you were able to strike a deal with him at all is a victory in itself!  Oh this is wonderful!"  He wrings his hands in anticipation.

"Outstanding. I'm pleased to see everything is going to turn out as planned. Please allow me to excuse myself for a moment. I must notify the others, and have the items brought forth with most haste."
Nod smiles politely, and turns to head back to the door.

Re: Chapter 1: Into the Haunted Forest
The sheriff watches silently through the narrow slits of his skeptical eyes.  The talk of druids and kings has drawn the attention of many of the customers as they sit silently and listen.  "Yes yes bring them forth!" the professor gestures for Nod to go.

Re: Chapter 1: Into the Haunted Forest

Fletcher's eyes pop open wide. He walks outside to the front of the inn.

What are you doing here? Was there trouble?

Fletcher looks around.

Re: Chapter 1: Into the Haunted Forest
Fletcher emits another high pitch squeal.

OHHH!

He turns to Marek.

And you! I expect non-sense from Wang! But you!

Fletcher's face turns bright red, his fists clenched. He looks them both over a moment, then grunts and runs for the forest where he hopes to find his horse.
