"Scras, you're a good man." The professor exclaimed eyeing the offered ale, " you'll find that +5 holy avenger in no time! Just remember, stay on that virtuous  lawful good path..."

EchoMirage listened to the professor drone on, but was now somewhat fixated on the red candle. The smell of the smoke was peculiar, and reminded him of something he couldn't quite bring to mind.

MysticMoon's cell phone buzzed and he excused himself for a minute, despite the professor's dramatic glare.

"As I was just about to say Myst, no, you can't tell if the Lady would give you coin for uhh some attention. She did appear physically attracted to you  there for a second, but the dire-wolf freaked her out. She's back in her carriage now, shades drawn."

"Ok. With Silveressa and Lucky ranging about a half mile ahead as per usual, you group heads out across the semi-wilderness. Valadaar rides some dozen yards behind the carriage, watching the rear, the rest of you are alongside the carriage."

"Six uneventful hours later...

(Lady Karkayla did mumble something about wasting money on an escort service, the roads seemed to be free of any villainy. Au contraire you countered, explaining to her that the lack of villainous attention was due no doubt to your fearsome reputations as escorts)

"...it is early evening and Chok, the Lady's bodyguard, slows the carriage, pointing into the near-dark (well not that dark for the elves wolves and half-elves among you). Up ahead is the Arms&Antlers Roadside Inn and Guesthouse...

Apparently, it is up to you, the Escort, to secure the stables, lodgings, and nourishment for the night. also, Dozus let me know which spell you're memorizing tonight for tomorrow. What else? Hmmm. Oh yes, Lucky my dear, your dire-wolf will not be allowed inside the Arms&Antlers, but could stay in the Guesthouse at night."

"One more thing. Silveressa, you noticed a suspicious group of travelers enter the inn just as your group approached it. I say suspicious because you know, they're all scowls and cowls and robes and darting glances. You're a ranger and an escort guard, you have a nose for these things. Lucky too..."

"Ok, five minute break! I need to quickly read up on something. Feel free to tell me what you're characters are doing. Or chat amongst yourselves. Lady Karkayla by the way will only speak with Scras or Myst. She pretty much ignores the rest of you. Someone pass the Doritos."

"Sorry again for being late" Echo hoisted a gallon demijohn of mead out of his luggage. "I hope this at least partially makes up for it. And, don't move the trail mix too far, Sil."
"And really, those roads - I never get used to the strict speed limits. And the police, so ... cordial."
"But, don't let me hold things up. Rolling HP!" he tossed a d8 onto the table, to watch the '2' blinking back at him. "Saw this coming."

He hungrily chewed on the nuts, and proceeded to quickly fill in the sheet, listening raptly to the unfolding tale.

As soon as they parted, Jerome took out his pda and checked the status of his works.  Many were now dual-purposed, armed as best as he could and also tied into Artemisa's network. He had done his best to make sure his commands took priority though, defense being higher priority then maintenance..

“Won’t he kill us if he finds out we took it?”

“He’ll kill us if we don’t take care of her

“Yeah, @!#$, lets go..”

The rest of the night was uncomfortable in their hasty ambush.  Apart from the occasional distant howl of a coyote, and a rodent or two sniffing at the dog's head, the night was uneventful.

The sun came up over the horizon and sent rays over the landscape, revealing the dew that had settled on everything.

On the bright side, no smoke could be seen in the direction of Redtower.

Liantirie is tall and sinewy, with sharp, angular features, blue-grey eyes and a generous amount of freckles. Her carrot-red hair is tied back in a single braid that is usually wrapped in a cloth sleeve to avoid catching in the armor. Liantirie is pale; her eyes appear surrounded by pools of shadow, her lips a dark red. This is not surprising, given that she was rescued from an untimely death by a priest of Morena, the Keeper of the Dark.
On her back, she carries the tattoo of the initiates of Morena, a fractal pattern unique for each initiate, stitched by an oracle in a drug-induced trance. It is said to hold secrets of the acolyte's future and to describe his greatest gift. Most of the priests can agree that the tattoo's location is less than optimal for study, though.

Morena is a goddess of death and magic, a harsh mistress with good intent. She calls for reward and punishment where it is due, and while she holds the key to many mysteries, she believes any access to them should be earned. Especially her priesthood is wary of the trials to which she subjects them.
Her priests are teachers, lorekeepers, judges and advisors; when questing, they often oppose trespassers against the natural order, or those who abuse magic against the rules woven by Morena into the Tapestry. Morena also opposes the forces of destruction, for she knows what is supposed to die, and when  - and no sooner.
In legends, she sometimes plays the role of adversary to heroes who would cheat their fate, or bring back a dead loved one from the beyond.
Curiously, she's also seen as patron of fated love, protector of the yearning and those whose affection is unrequited, forbidden, or separated by distance and time.

Valadaar was pleased that everyone had made it - it had been a while since his place had so much activity.  Normally the 3-bedroom apartment was quiet - Val never hosted and hadn't even bothered buying a TV. His computer was enough.

The apartment was overlarge, the product of a somewhat addled landlord.  The apartment he was supposed to get was stuck in reno, so while he waited, the three bedroom was his.  It had two levels, tight corridors and odd shaped rooms. A converted Victorian. 

"d**n, I should have picked a Barbarian this time. So many HP, though that XP cost per level is insane." 

But no, he took a thief.  Someone had to watch the party's back.
