    Maeni keeps close to Flair, who kinda went too fast as she was planning to go in ready.
    I just moved with my gf, and might need some time to find the perfect spot for my cpu. Still trying to keep up with my games.

    Toli makes a motion with his head, and his drinking partner collects the cards they were playing and his drink and clears out.

    He makes a motion for Maeni, Dorn, and Flair to sit. Dorn obliges.

    She sits and ask in a low voice, mostly to avoid potential panic moves in nearby drinkers.

    "Sorry to interrupt your game, but we are investigating that situation. Could you describe what you saw ? Anything could help."

    "Just before the kidnappin's started," begins Toli in a hushed whisper, "I noticed a glowin' light from a small cave along the shore about a mile outta' town. Now, say what you want about that crazy codger Nasmeth, but that doomsayer might be onta' somethin'. I'mma thinkin' that light I saw is the Briarstone Witch returned to once again take Thrushmoor inta' the bay. I keep tellin' folks this over cards and drinks, but people ain' takin' my warnin's ser'ously."

    Dorn looks at his friends then to Toli. "We take you seriously, Toli ... at least that the light means no good. We're willing to look into it. Can you take us there?"

    Toli thinks about it then nods. "For two silver shields a passenger, I will bring you right to the cave."

    Toli takes the gold piece, goes into the Stain, and comes out a minute later to give Jens change of six silver.

    Does Jens complain or take that loss stoically?

    Jens takes his change without a care. It was almost worth the price not to need to enter the establishment. Besides with Jen’s luck he would charge them for the trip back and he can bring this up then.

    Toli takes the lot of you down to the pier, and his fishing boat is enough to take the lot of you.

    As he takes you out along the water with lots of islets and the like, he will mention that this grotto he is taking you to has been used by all manner of smugglers, hunters, and addicts over the years, and most of Thrushmoor's citizens don't even know about them. Since they tend to be used only by those with shady behaviors, most who know of its location remain tight-lipped about it.

    It is a mile away from town, and it takes about 45 minutes to get to it due to navigating obstacles and dealing with current.

    When you step out of the boat onto the tiny beach leading to a cave mouth, I need to know what each of you have readied/ prepared/ in hand. I know that Jens' collective is running with all members of the group (sans Brother Jaume).

    Brother Jaume? Flair? Jens? Maeni?

    Flair makes a note to himself that he really ought to get a alchemy crafting kit, but it's on an ever-growing list of things he needs to pick up. He otherwise spends the first half of the trip over trying to meditate, though as they being to approach,he does his best to limber himself up.

    Until I get said kit, all Alchemist is giving me is Inspiration, and since I bound my spirits already, there is nothing else for me to ready or prepare.

    A small strip of muddy sand choked with reeds sits at the entrance of a low cave just at the lip of the bay. Scraggly vines drape over the top of the cave and hang like tangled hair over its mouth.

    Obscured from casual observation by vegetation, this small cave mouth opens in the limestone face of the water’s edge. This part of the shore is approximately 8
    feet above the water level, so if the PCs approach this area from the shore, they have to descend to what serves as a beach in front of the cave.

    Okay, so how do you get down? what precautions do you take, etc.?
    Spoiler: OOC
    Show
    Climbing down the damp limestone face of the shore may make for a very challenging climb.

    Another way for some to go ... a pair of large rocks offers an easier path for more nimble characters: a PC can step or hop from rock to rock and hopefully end up safely in front of the cave.

    Dorn doesn't wait. He simply springs from rock to rock and is down below. He takes out his hammer in a guarding position.

    Jens makes his way to the wall and begins to climb down. He relies upon his connection to the earth and, in spite of the slipperiness, he almost feels as though the stone was latching onto him to keep him secure in his climb as he descends.

    It is just. not. Maeni's. day. She tumbles and falls to the ground, taking 4, which has the added effect of muddying up her fashionable clothes.

    It is at this point that every single one of our sharp-eyed heroes realizes that something is not quite right with those thick vines at the cave mouth. As Maeni gets to her feet, the very large plants come to life!
