With Winnie otherwise occupied, the other serving staff have to work much harder than normal, flitting from tables to table collecting orders  and running them up to the bar as quickly as they can.

One waitress, jugging a tray full of empties, stops by Findlas' table to take his order, then pulls a face as the woman at the next table asks for warmed milk.  "I'll see what I can do ..." she responds with a forced smile.

Berta smiles and nods to both Marceline and Magatha, though feels the lack of a cup to return the salute ... but for the moment she's on duty, and her roving eyes scan the room.

Voices growing a bit too loud and angry  launch her from her comfortable post, sending  her across the floor, not quickly, but with her habitual swagger that gives those she's heading for time enough to kiss and make up before she draws close, saying nothing but lingering long enough to let it be a warning, before leaving them to it.

With nobody else looking as if they need her to eyeball them at the moment, the warrior-woman elects to take up her vigil at the table that Marceline has chosen, grasping her friend in a robust hug of greeting.

>>> To Marceline's table (but she's still watching you all !  ;>)

Magatha strode from the stage with as much purpose as she had strode onto it. She dutifully returned the empty whiskey glass to the bar, never one to be a bad guest.

It was to the half-elven man who had played the song at the proper tempo to keep her sword exercises in sync that she directed her final march.

"There is a man in this town that I am looking to meet. They say he was a street performer and now he holds town meetings. Something of a gift for music, they say. And describe him to look a certain way. If that man be you, then I have a business proposal to discuss. In private. "

When she returns from her private meeting with Cass, Magatha Primrose has another man waiting for her. An elaborate bow is followed by the words "Madam, I am in awe of your skills. I am striving to master a dueling style and believe you can help me strengthen a few basics that seem to have escaped me. I also need the services of a skilled inventor, because I have an idea that might aid trade within the River Kingdoms. Might you be available for consultation? For a proper fee, of course."

Considering all of the commotion and hilarity that the simple notice Wyn had put up caused, Darius decided he needed to take a look at it for himself.

Ever vigilant, Berta takes heed of those amongst the crowd who choose to read the notice her brother posted, her brow rising almost imperceptibly as Darius ventures over to the bar, his surreptitious glances not escaping her attention.

Findlas walked up to the bar and took at look at the notice that had grabbed the attention of others since he'd come in waiting, wondering what it might be about.

He chuffed a bit to himself when he read the notice and popped up on a stool and said to the bartender. "So... says someone wants a skilled jeweler. I happen to be one such. Who needs what done?"

The bartender nods, and calls Wyn over.

The bard looks down at the gnome.  "So you are a jeweller?  And you say you are a skilled jeweller?  OK, so show me some of your work."

Findlas looked up at the man asking with a squint in his eye, "I do say, yup. I don't carry my work about with me because it's all sold son. Just arrived in town after all. You show me some jewels that need work though and I'll show you my work first hand."

He did reach into a pack and pull out some incredibly well-made tools for jewel work. "Gnome doesn't come by tools like this less he's got some skill with the work. But if you need me to show you jewels I've cut and polished, well there's none right now."

"And you just expect me to hand over precious metals to the first gnome who happens to pop into my bar?  That is a good way to lose money real quick.  Look, I am not saying you will do a runner on me, but I need some sort of references or surety before I have over a lump of gold t a complete stranger.  I expect you want to see the money, before you hand over a finished piece of work ...."

"Well, like I said. I just got to town so I don't have much to give you that'll act as a guarantee. Friend of mine sent for me. Said I might find things to interest me down here that I hadn't seen before. It was time for me to move on so I took her up on it. I'm hoping to meet up with her down here, but I've got the letter she sent me. She works for that Lord Henry doin' some such, and I think she's getting me setup up at Oleg's too. I passed through there on the way in, but they told me she was down this way doing things." Findlas grumbled to the man as he pulled out a letter to show Wyn.

"As to payment..." he shrugged. "If you try to stiff me, I'll have the jewels which are worth more than my work likely. So... don't stiff me and we'll be fine. I don't need to see your money before I do the work, just when you want to claim the jewel or jewels back."

Stuck helping out behind the bar this evening Berta half listens to the conversation betwixt the gnome and her elder brother, while keeping an eye out for Winnie, ready to send Ged, whose turn it is to watch the crowd, to intercept and divert her sister-in-law away from them should it prove necessary.

"They're a thirsty lot these Tuskers !" she grins to one of the servers, filling another jug of ale and passing it over.

Wyn reads the letter that Findlas hands over and starts to smile as the gnome threatens him.  "I see you haven't quite got the idea.  There are no jewels, just the gold.  However, this resolves the problem," he says waving the letter around, before returning it to the Gnome.  "I'll pop into see you next time I am up at Oleg's and you have your workshop set up."

Wyn waves one of the servers across, then turns back to the Gnome.  "Thank you for coming across to see me,  allow me to buy you a drink ..." he says indicating the server.

In reply to ~Findlas (msg # 101):

Adoven is nursing an ale and contemplating plans for the future. He walks up holding his mug and asks "Good sir, are you from Jovvox by any chance?"

With a smile towards the merchant, Wyn instructs the server, "Oh, and get one for Adoven as well."

Berta has two cups of ale waiting on the counter by the time the server turns about again, ready to lift them onto the tray and send her on her way.

Jovvox ?  Somewhere in the River Kingdoms, she thinks, though her grasp of the geography of these parts is uncertain.

Findlas looks oddly at Wyn, "yeah. Guess I didn't get it, but now I do. Usually when I see a note like that it's someone wanting some rough stuff cleaned up for a fee, not ready coin to spend on already done work. But I get you now. Sure come on up when in a few weeks. I should have some stuff by then." He nodded his thanks for the drink and sipped it as Adoven walked up.

"Jovvox? Not so much, but I've passed through a time or two. Adoven's your name then? What's Jovvox to you?"

Adoven says "my company and I are looking to expand trade to the south. It occurs to me that being able to set up a jetty in Jovvox might be mutually beneficial with Tusk. Somehow I don't see Mivon welcoming a competing shipper within their city unless I establish a semi-local presence first."

Findlas nodded, "ahh. Well as to that, not sure what help I'll be. As I said, I've been there and passed through. Not from there though, so not much help to you in trying to set something up."

"If you do get a meet with someone down there, I might could write you an introduction or some such one gnome to another, but beyond that not sure what help I could be."
