    Kuzit bows in front of Gharen. "My name is Kuzit Anav, and this is Tobias. We were at the good professor's funeral. We're looking into the circumstances of it, and we were hoping to speak to the councilmembers about him, in light of... recent events." She was doing her best to mimic a formal cadence, even if it wasn't her normal voice. It likely sounds a bit stilted, but hopefully not enough so to be more awkward than the alternative.

    "Perhaps, but people, they do not trust a dhampir easily in Qadira, much less in a land where the undead are a true plague," Kara says as the group walks back to Kendra's home. "Even less so one who casts spells and burns, hm? And then there is a large and imposing man, a dragon-kin, we are not so approachable a group as might be hoped. It will take time and work, I think, to earn anything resembling trust from these folk." She sighs and shakes her head.

    Tobias comes in with a respectful nod and takes his seat. "Well, to begin with, we were hoping you could tell us a little more about the relationship that Professor Lorrimor had with the town. Some folks certainly didn't seem to like him, if today was anything to go by." He figures that this is a safe enough point to lead off with--although he intends to leave the more delicate questions about the other councilmembers to the more diplomatic kobold.

    Well, as Vashian said, the folks today were rabble-rousers, not the usual folk of the town. But besides that, the good professor did have a habit of retreating into his books and being very secretive about his doings. That and the superstition of the villagers lead to lotsa rumors about 'im spreading. That unpopularity among the villagers almost cost me my seat on the council, ta be honest, 'cause he was a good friend of mine. He shakes his head and sighs.

    Nah, not so much that, but more that the other two are more concerned for their reputation then the good professor. As far as I know, he weren't on bad terms with 'em.

    Kara walks up, having been given directions to where the others had gone, and sees the door open. She walks up, listens briefly, then knocks on the door frame and goes in. "Hello," she says. "Kara is my name, I am another friend of the late professor's. I am sorry to say, the temple of Pharasma will be no help to us in this matter - not unless the town trusts us and I think that not so likely, hm?"

    Kuzit nods at Kara as she walks in. "That's bad... is there anything we can help the village out with, Councilman? Make ourselves more welcomed? I imagine if the other two didn't see the point in attending the funeral, they won't talk to us either, so we need to get some goodwill somewhere!"

    At Kara's entrance, Gharen stands up and bows in her direction. Welcome, dear lady, to my humble abode.

    He grabs another chair and sits down in it, offering his chair to Kara. After Kuzit speaks, he says, Hmm...well, I guess my paper boy, Pevrin, hasn't stopped by yet. He must be all tied up with chores at home, so you could copy my paper onta three other peices of paper and post them on the four news poles around the town. The poles always have a few jobs posted on 'em, too, but mostly mundane ones.

    'sides that, Sherrif Caeller always has jobs for those skilled in combat. I can tell you where to find his office, if that's what you'd prefer.

    And finally, you can go to the tavern and lookout for rumors. Zokar'd be happy to have you-he was a good friend of the professor's. If you head there, send Pevrin over to me, alright?

    But before ya go, a word of warning. Folk here are superstitious, and you oughta avoid using magic if not absolutely necessary. Too much, and folk would run ya out of town for 'Witchcraft!'.

    Hit Ponts: 14 of 14 l Conditions: None.


    Feeling concerned for Kendra's safety, Luna declined to go and seek out the other's after the meeting with the Pharasmin clergy, and instead wandered the streets of the town, given the late hour they appeared largely empty, but it had been suggested to make oneself of some use to the town. He was familiar enough with small villages to realize that, in some cases requests, notices, and other such information was posted centrally at the center of the town, and so he wandered there to review the parchment.

    While not entirely unintelligent, Luna did struggle with the written word, and so could be seen to be slowly tracing the words with a finger as he sounded out the sentence itself, finally, after struggling through the various postings, he grabbed the ones that were the most relevent and wandered back to Lorrimer's estate, to ensure that Kendra herself was safe. He planned, once there, to grab a bottle of wine, and read the postings slowly on the porch while we waited for his companions return.

    Maronne

    Deciding that she doesn't have much to add in the conversations with the councilpeople, Maronne decides to join Luna in his search for interesting tasks for the group to accomplish. She doesn't attempt to make much conversation, instead deciding to keep her ears open for any interesting conversation to reach her ears. Perhaps she'd be able to find someone in need of assistance that way.

    Tobais nods to the councilman. "We'd be glad to help out." He's making a bit of an assumption on the others' part, but he feels it's a safe one. "Thank you for the advice. And..." he pauses, glancing at Kuzit, before continuing. "We've run into evidence that Professor Lorrimor was investigating some unsavory folks when he died, and that they may still be around and causing trouble. You hear a lot about what happens in the town, yes? It might be helpful if you do pick up on anything odd going on."

    Oh, I'm not much of a public man no more, actually. Zokar would be the one to tell, if anyone. He hears all sorts of talk, bein' the tavern keeper.

    He hands you a long piece of paper with several short articles on what happened in Ravengro and surrounding areas over the past week. Copy this three times and put it up on the posts. They're not hard to spot, and there are four in all, one in each corner of town. I can't give you exact directions, as I don't often check the posts myself.

    The task is simple, but time consuming, and once it's completed the moon is high in the sky and the sun is nowhere to be found.

    "We should head back to Kendra's, make sure that nothing has happened and then go to sleep, I think," Kara says, turning her feet in that direction. She was already weary from the long travel; the late night has only made the fatigue dragging at her limbs more of a burden.

    As you walk back towards the center of town, all seems quiet.
    Spoiler: Kuzit only
    Show
    You hear a faint screaming sound coming from the left, far behind you. It sounds like the kind of sound cats make when afraid. If you turn in that direction, you see a small wooden hut with a thatched roof between a few trees. The sound continues for a few more seconds, then is silent.


    None of the shops are open, and there are few houses in this area. It seems like the town has all gone to sleep, besides you.

    As you approach the small cottage, you see someone running away from the other side of the house with a head-shaped object in their hand. But wait... That's strange. The person's speed is so fast, it's unnatural. Their legs are moving faster than should be possible for a person.

    OOC: Everyone can probably open the spoiler from my previous post now. If you want to chase the person that's running, roll me an acrobatics check.

    Unfortunately for Tobias, unfamiliarity with the terrain combined with the darkness of the night means that he trips and falls over a bush.
