I am still keen to check out the other Inn. Gwydion is still starving, and we may find it a better place to gain information.

We'll see what the last couple replies are, and then I'll take it from there.

Sorry about my slowness, I posted!

Overall, Kerrick will go with the group, but he'd rather finish this job than leave it undone after stirring everything up.

So I think we've got a couple lead ins to the elves perhaps? (They mostly come out at night. Mostly.) I don't think we have any information on how often people disappear or come back, however, or if it happens in the town proper?

I'm considering some sort of half-baked plan where we dress up the bladedancer as an old woman and see if we can trick them into trying to kidnap her or whatever's going on.

If we can hit an eatery and get some info that makes any course of action besides burning it all down plausible, that'd be worthwhile.

Edit: or, now that I've caught up on IC, some variation of the stakeout plan as proposed by Kerrick.

Since we're here now, I'd rather follow up a few more leads. We haven't done anything yet except ask a couple of npcs what's up.

But goblins was my first choice, so I'll be good with that when the time comes.

And we paid 5 silver to get to this town, so we better find something :)

by the way the plan of the bladedancer in disguise dosent sound that bad.

Very well, it looks as if the majority plan is to stay here. I will change my vote so we have a consensus.

Hey gents! I've borrowed a PC and I'm working on a reply. Sorry again for the delay. I will say this is one of the only times I've purchased an extended warranty, and am I ever glad I did!

Illyana offers you rooms at 5sp a night (and the Baron said he'd party you back). What's the plan? What is the party going to do after that?

I think there were some good ideas regarding nocturnal, covert surveillance. On top of that, we have some more leads to question. How much day remains?

Plenty of time for shenanigans. How far away would we estimate the elves' residence from what the cleric told us? What about Hulgrud (probably should ask the baronette)

I'd suggest perhaps keeping the baronet apart from any investigation of Hulgrud, but with us as long as possible, up to and including overnight, if we can maybe get him a bit tipsy and asleep. (how old do we judge him? He sounds like a college aged child)

You'd guess he hasn't yet seen 18 summers.

Ack! Hulgrud was an honest mistake.

'baronette' was not, I was being condescending towards the creature :)

Though I'm considering now lightly misspelling NPC names in the future as a character flaw. Blame the fact I have so many names in my head from my study of history.

Let's not forget Leland, Neddy and Stephon. It may be time to split the party again to cover some ground. Neddy sounds like the strongest lead out of those. Does Kaul feel like rifling his place while someone keeps him talking?

I wouldn't mind talking to the hermit, but one of the casters may have more to bring to bear there. We need to leave the Baronet out of that, if we can't ditch him entirely.

At some point we've got to get past asking people what they each think is going on though. I'm thinking that first inn is the best lead we've got there. Take rooms, break in at night, or just stake it out?

I agree that another split will get us more information faster, and that's a good thing.

Kerrick will join the hermitage party, both so I can abuse detect evil and to make sure we've got fighter-types in both groups just in case of combat.

Hypothetically, if I were splitting the party into two groups, it would be:

Group Hermit Squad:
Kerrick
Aria
Andrew
Masov

Group Elf Investigation
Hengist
Miska
Kaul
Gwydion

Hermit Squad is my Foo Fighters tribute band name.

And I'm OK with this plan.

I've got no objection to meeting elves, but I still want to follow through on meeting Neddy the carpenter, preferably with Kaul along to go behind the scenes since he says he's on board. I'd be happy to have the elf team along, but for speed you could split us off.

Group Elf Investigation
Masov
Miska
Gwydion

Group Nosey Neddy

I see we don't hear from you much until there's a body to loot. Jesus, man! He's not even cold, yet! In any case, there's another player who's been waiting to join, and I've offered him Miska. If he instead makes his own Character, we can totally make Miska a Henchman.

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! BEST...TYPO...EVER!

Heading in the opposite direction, Masov, Miska, and Gwydion pass the Silver Scale Inn and quickly reach the wall surrounding Baron Mallory's manor-house. Following north along the embankment at the foot of the wall for a few minutes, you reach the northern limit of the town's palisade. A few dozen feet from the manor's wall sits a small, single-story stone cottage, built with its back against the palisade. The building appears well-maintained, its roof newly thatched, and the sides freshly shite-washed. A quick glance around shows an old woman up the street, listlessly sweeping the porch of another home perhaps a hundred feet away. The door to the cottage is closed, as are the shutters.

What is Kaul doing? His is perched on the side of the carpenter's home, near and between two second-floor windows, both shuttered.
