    Default Verden, Metropolis by the Sea(IC thread)

    Myosotis Plaza[Noonish on the 23rd of the year 1048]:
    The weather's been clear today, and the Myosotis that the plaza are named after have already started to have this year's first bloom.
    Along the eight roads leading in and around the plaza many workers can be seen, goblins in their colourful garb peddling freshly caught fish, elvish scriveners peddling books and services, and many others going about their lives.

    On the slightly raised center of the plaza the noticeboard is full of requests or advertisements as usual, and a crier can be heard closer to roads, shouting about news and recent events.

    Noticeboard;

    Irvikius stands on the raised platform looking at the noticeboard. She turns her head glancing in the direction of the crier and around the plaza, causing the braids on the top of her head to shake.

    Hector walks towards the noticeboard, and bends over somewhat to read the jobs postings. "Hmm... Languages? Nope. Not my thing," he says, more to himself than to anyone around. "This wanted notice here seems worth asking about though." After making a mental note of the name of the wanted criminal and the contact information, he quickly scans the rest of the board for anything useful. "That scrivener might be a useful place to visit. ... Heh. Sky-Weasels. Who thought that one up? ... Wait, what's this say? Warning: may sting and/or... sting? Huh? Aww, they sounded kinda neat, too."

    Reilenn slowly sifts his way through the throngs of people in the plaza to reach the stand with the notice board, all the while eating his goblin-made wrap that was his lunch. Advancing to the platform, he notices a lovely elven girl there, and he takes more an interest in her than the posted job. Why, hello there, my graceful beauty. Might you be in town this season for the Spring Festival?

    Irvikius turns towards Reilenn smiling. "The festival is in Hearthholme, silly. Not Verden. Anyway, I'm not here for any particular reason. I was looking for something to do I guess."

    Jack made a concerted effort to keep his face behind his hood's shade. It is doubtful that anyone here would recognize him since he had left when he was young but he thought that discretion would be a good idea for now. He made his way to the center of the plaza, taking note to be as inconspicuous as possible among the crowd.

    A few coughs came from him as he gleaned at the postings on the notice board intently. Beside the listing for a wanted man, there weren't any jobs that fell right into his expertise. The languages maybe, but unless the document was of an elven, a gnomish or a halfling tongue, he would not be of much help.

    It was a while before his attention came back to become aware of his immediate surroundings. A young man was reading something as he leaned at the side of the notice board, an elvish lass and a fellow human chatting a few steps away and apparently a man in a rather imposing set of spiked full plate armor just to his side eyeing the same job he was. That looked like quite an opportunity.

    "Hail, sir knight." He greeted as he surmised by the man's attire. "I am Jack Rifter, and I see you have quite an interest with the listing to apprehend a criminal. Would you be interested in a friendly alliance regarding the matter? I cannot sit idly by and see a ruffian roam freely in such a nice city."

    Hector looks Jack up and down, noting his gun, rapier, and slightly frail appearance. "Well, you don't look like much of a fighter, though if you're good enough with that gun or sword I'm sure that won't matter much. I'd be happy to do this together. Name's Hector. Sir Hector of LumenWald, really, but, that title gets used at courts and tourneys and all that, you don't have to bother with it." Hector smiles, and extends a hand towards Jack.

    "Well met Sir Hector." He replied reprising the smile as he shook Hector's hand. "I may not look like much, but certain things can surprise you."

    Hector's gauntleted hand eclipsed his, making it seem like a child's.

    Large, imposing weapon, menacing armor, he's perfect to stray attention away from me or dissuade any trouble. He thought.

    The man in glasses puts his letter in his pocket and turns to face Hector and Jack. "I couldn't help but overhear, you two are heading off after Mr. Ranbert. If you'd like, I can offer my assistance in this endeavor. You can call me M."

    Moving through the crowd to get to the notice board to see if there is any work to be had. I hear the familiar voice of the formerly nameless wanderer I had adventured with a long time ago. I make my way over to "M".

    "So your going by M now you old land lover! Was that a bounty you lot were chasing after?"

    "Ah, Mr. Jotson. It has been a fair while, hasn't it? I do believe M was my pseudonym of choice when our paths last crossed as well. What a strange event... Anyway, yes we were just discussing the scoundrel Ranbert, and potential for bringing him to justice."

    Uh, yes, well... Noticing his small blunder, he looks for something to change the subject. He finds the wanted poster. Oh, aah... I-it looks that old Starav is up to no good again, I guess. But, aahhh, what is it that interests you here, exactly?

    "The two of us were talking about working together to catch Ranbert." Hector quickly sizes M and Jotson up, looking particularly impressed at Jotson's stature and greatsword. "Don't see why we shouldn't all work together on this."

    "Oh, I'm actually a traveling performer, but I was looking to get back to some actual adventuring. Speaking of which..."
    She cuts into the conversation with Hector, Roy, Jack and M. "I couldn't help but overhear that you fellows were going after Ranbert. Would you mind if I came along to help?"

    Jack let loose a hearty laugh, more because of the incredible luck he's having, less so about the unlikeliness of the situation he is now witnessing.

    "Well, Sir Hector, it seems you have a penchant for attracting aid. Not that I could complain." He candidly surmised.

    "Well, we should hurry to the Eastern Guard Station and get the particulars then, lest this Ranbert catch wind of a sudden burst of interest on his behalf."

    Mightn't you require some help finding him? I could check around for him, or I could even take a look at the scenes of his crimes.

    Hector's face briefly lights up as this stranger mentions his ability to find evidence and track people. "Hadn't even thought about that. We'd need someone to be able to do that kinda stuff. Name's Hector," he says, once again extending a gauntleted hand, "and you are?"

    "Ah, the burden of us of lesser stature." Jack replies with a bit of a smirk to Irvikius in Elven. Indeed, within the collection of humanoids atop that platform, they were among those of humble height.

    "I am certain Sir Hector meant nothing by it. It is a bit overwhelming that so much interest on his person has come up in so short a time."

    "Name's Rifter, Jack Rifter, and it is a pleasure to meet you're acquaintance." He introduced as he extends a hand greeting the elf.

    She shakes his hand smiling."It's nice to meet you, Jack. You can call me Riki or Kius, since elven names can be bit of a mouthful."
    She turns to the rest of the group, switching out of Elven. "What can all of us do anyway? I can do a little bit of magic, and I'm somewhat capable in physical combat, but mainly I actually improve the ability of those around me."

    I work with people, on people, mostly. I use psionics to... pick at peoples brains. Reilenn says the last part with a meek, sad smile. I am a detective so mostly I am looking for people and generally they don't want to come with me when I find them, so that is what the sword and gun are for.
