Pippa: Mr. Crimmy taps your hand and offers a sympathetic smile. “Thank you for your condolence. My wife and I would have celebrated our 35th year of marriage next spring. The fever took her before the blackscour had even set in. It’s been especially hard on Jac.” He leaned back into his chair as Jacqueline approached with a set of commoners clothes folded in her arms. He exhaled forcing a smile concluding his discussion about his wife. “I met Lord Kilbee once. He spent two nights here at the Inn several years ago. He was a fat slob then, and Im sure he hasnt changed much. Just because a man is higherborn, doesnt give him entitlements to everything. Especially young girls. He got what he deserved if you asked me.”
“Here is a set of clothes your friend can have. Im sorry they’re not much. A simple dress and shoes.” She explained.
Pip (unless you say otherwise) spends an hour with the two before heading back to the ship. The dark sky outside Jak a’ Napes glows with the aura of lights across town. Cheers of celebration can be heard in the low market. The rogue makes her way back to the docks careful not to draw attention to herself. Upon reaching the ship she nods a greeting to Ernest and his young apprentice as they wheel the cart of dead goblins past. She heads up the gang plank and finds Eutropia offering the change of clothes.
Work with Laurel in the wooden cabin. They make dozens of dozes of the antidote and immediately begin treating the sick. They work late into the night treating the most severe first. By 4:00am, their task is complete and they both retire to their respected tents for the night.
The morning brings new hope!
Brantus and Liliandril:
The blond priestess helps comfort the sick by bringing water to them to drink and by washing their faces. As Laurel and Abraham administer the antidotes, she stays by the side of several children watching for any signs of improvement.
The cleric eventually falls asleep next to their bedrolls.
Brantus, ever vigilant in his duty, finds a spot to sleep keeping his charge protected. He sleeps soundly for the first time in days.
After turning down offers for drinks in the Rouge Lady, the elf mage wonders the lower market, listening for word of woodland fae or other evils in the forest. However this night is full of merry making and optimism, for the sickness has been cured. Fear of contracting the disease is gone and the people speak of the Maiden from Olfden as savior of Falcon’s Hollow. This makes the elf roll his eyes, but he understands heroism is often misappropriated.
There is no mention of the Lumbar Consortium in a negative light, in fact, talk of the Hollow growing in production now that the sickness is gone is heard. Woodsmen drink and cheer for their livelihood has been preserved.
Before deciding to head back to the ship, Nyll does notice a group of men standing to the side of the Rouge Lady next to kegs of wine. One of the men he immediately recognizes as Spievy. The underling thug that beat Kimmi for giving Jaeshar bread when he was caged. He still wears his Consortium badge, which gives him enforcement authority in the Lower Market. He is surrounded by several of his cronies, all of which were probably part of the beating. But there is another Nyll recognizes. The half-orc Kabran Bloodeye, owner of the Rouge Lady. He towers over the other humans as they discuss the events of this night. He wears the apron of a barkeeper, and wipes out a glass beer mug with a towel as they speak. They dont seem to notice the elf among the large crowd.
(unless you say otherwise)
Eventually the night grows long and Nyll returns to the ship for the night.
Jaeshar: lets Ernest remove the dead Goblins from below. Except for Norvil, the others have gone to bed in the front barrack, now cleaned by Brigette. Nia sleeps in a rear cabin across from Eutropia’s room. The dead merfolk are placed alone in another cabin towards the back. Ren and her mother have disappeared inside the water tank and are fast asleep. Kibbo has found a corner to sleep.
Jae can tell the old man knows more about Lizmilla, but doesnt share. He simply shakes his head and continues loading the dead Goblins. Within 20 minutes, he had loaded the bodies and leads them away with his young apprentice.
Deetish returns to Jae telling him about the scratching she heard from beyond the door holding the goblins. Norvil and he remain diligent until the others return.
Fortunado: thinks about buying a new crossbow tomorrow when the shops have reopened. (sorry, not much to do yet)
Summary:(unless anyone wants to back post… which is fine… I’ll summarize the night)
Eventually, everyone except Brantus and Liliandil, return to the ship for the night. It is late, and everyone is exhausted. It has been one of the longest days. Brigette has cleaned the main barrack and most find bunks there. The gang plank has been pulled and the ship is secured from anyone wanting to board during the night.
In the morning, the town seems to sleep in a bit before noises from the Lower Market are heard. It is sunny, but colder today. An indication that the autumn days grow shorter and the winter months are still approaching. The group is eager to enter the town for a good meal and resupply. (money has been divided up, but if someone… Ivor… can find a list of items needing to be appraised, those items can be addressed too)
