RE: D&D In Character Thread
"I am sure that I can speak for everyone here when I say that we'll be happy to help."

Milfa pauses for a second and continues.

"There is just one matter that I was wondering whether you could help us with. Being skilled in the magical arts and a local to these parts you might be able to make something of it. One of our party, the one that died in the mine, idly read a book whilst we were all meeting up at the town inn the first night. It turned out to be a magical book with the title 'Travels of Jain Farstrider' and it sent him into a dangerous hypnotic trance. The inn keeper knew nothing of the book. I'm just a little worried in case there is a powerful mage out there who is trying to thwart us. Do you know of any such person?"

Gyrand: Hmm I will look into that. If I find anything I will be sure to pass on the information.

There's no point in having a working mine clear of goblins if the miners are just working to line the pockets of bandits. Who can we meet to find out more about how the produce is shipped out and where the bandits might be able to sell their stolen goods?"

"I agree, Milfa! I feel the bandits should be our 1st priority, as well!"

*Groh'L crosses his arms, and gives a pointed look to the still silent Isia*

"It won't trouble you to dispatch this band of thieves will it, Isia? We may find that they believe themselves to be merely... hunting for treasure... Dodgy I would hate to place you in a moral dilemma over continuing to side with us, or switching sides to join the obviously lucrative enterprise of stealing nearly every mine shipment this town ships out!"

"I'm not sure what you think of me, but you might have misunderstood me. Common bandits and I have nothing in common. I wouldn't be seen dead joining them. Unlike them, I have an eye for actually lucrative enterprises and worthy companions."

A fleeting smile appears on Isia's face right before she takes her eyes away from Groh'L.

Thoven sits quietly sipping his wine and listening to his companions and Gyrands stories and the news of bandits and wolves.

"It's getting late and I think it is high time I found a bed for the night"

"I agree with the mine cleared taking care of the bandits should be our first priority so the town can open up trade again." he nods to Groh'L and Milfa.

"Gyrand, thank you for a most generous evening but I must be of to bed" he stands and bows to their host and turns giving a small smile to Nathlana.

Onward, my faithful steed!

Nathlana bites her lip, just for second. She looks into Groh'L's eyes wondering about him. He seems interesting to her. She winks at him and stretches.
"I'm rather tired myself, goodnight everyone"

Nathlana walks away never taking her eyes off Groh'L until she is out of the room.

Swing with me a while, we can listen to the birds call, we can keep each other warm.
Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.

Gyrand wishes you both a warm good night and a servant escorts you out.

*Groh'L sees his 2 companions leaving, and remembers back to some of the training received while still an acolyte. Specifically the training bestowed on him by the priestess' (infinitely more desirable than the combat training by R'holor's warrior priests)*

"Well, we know where our next adventure will take us, where our next target lies. I think I'll get some rest, Gyrand, if you don't mind, and ask after your Captain if no one has already by then, in the morning! Good night, all"

*Groh'L likes his... rest Shy *

RE: D&D In Character Thread
A rather risky sort of joke, Miruion had thought, at Gyrand's appearance. They would be most unpleasantly surprised if that had not been Gyrand. But hospitality was more than sufficient restitution for frayed nerves. Gyrand's home befit his successful past, and the offered food, drink, and bed were amenities long missed. Asceticism well suits travel, Miruion thought, recalling a phrase one of his teachers had once used, but even self-denial may be overindulged in. He smiled as he set to sampling the well-prepared spread.

He sampled steamed vegetables. He listened to Thoven speak.

He served himself portions of small game. He listened to Groh'L's brief tale. And he reflected on the brief theological postscript.
(but he did not partake overmuch of the brandy, on the offer)

He passed over unfamiliar mushrooms - never worth the risk. He listened to Gwen's halting inquiry. Well that you should finally ask, he thought, bemused. You'll hardly learn anything otherwise.

He tried several croquettes. He listened to Milfa's questioning. And justly asked, he thought. A public bookcase ought to be stocked with a little more care.

He took a large cut of boar. And he could not resist a smile at Groh'L's question to Isia, and the accompanying look.An eye indeed.

To rest the large meal he found himself switching from small beer to stout ale. He watched Thoven and Nathlana leave. She has certainly been careful not to reveal anything. But reticence alone was not suspicious. He saw Groh'L rising to follow them.

He looked to the remaining dinner guests.

"It is well that our next path is set. Purpose is a valuable thing. And we would be ill-served by sundering what may prove a profitable enterprise." And, no less important, the task itself. Banditry is truly unbecoming. We will once again be rewarded for performing a necessary service.

"It has been some time since I had such a welcome given me," he said to Gyrand. "I am a simple itinerant for most of my days. The change is a welcome one, and I thank you." Miruion rose to bow towards the gnome. "Do you know if I might find silken thread here? There is some work I would see to before I retire. Not that I am in any rush to do so, if others among you are not yet so inclined."

... this is my signature!

Gyrand motions over a servant who softly converses with you asking exactly what you require. Once you explain exactly what is needed they hurry off to fetch you the items you requested.
