    Return to the Temple of Elemental Evil

    ((OOC thread is here
    RG thread is here))

    It was mid-morning when you arrived in the Village of Hommlet. However, you quickly saw that village was not the best title for it. Village usually would connotate a much smaller settlement, and Hommlet was larger than one would expect for a village. Up on a large hill above the many houses and buildings was a large fortress. A few banners could be seen, but it was impossible to identify them from the distance.

    You knew little of the history of the village. Simply that it was once the site of a great battle, and a group of adventurers stopped what would likely have been a second battle. However, Hommlet was silent ever since then. Near fifteen long years now. From the look of it, the people you could see didn't seem to mind, though the air of the village was still heavy and a little oppressing.

    However, attention was on the streets ahead. People moved about here and there, but most seemed too occupied with their business to notice new faces. Adventurers were rare in Hommlet these days, many considered that any opportunities of wealth and adventuring were gone from Hommlet. This drew you to the 'village'. It was unlikely that there would be any competition in the area from other adventuring groups. This was, of course, always a good thing.

    Krog not really a leader will simply follow the others into the town. Not really at ease in the village he tries to avoid the villager as much as he can letting the others do the talking.

    Krog always currious will look at the local architecture always happy to discover something new.

    Hedwan moves quietly along with the companions, appearing more or less like a gnome ranger*, with leather armor, a dark green cloak, and a heavy broad-brimmed hat; the gnome smiles at the current vacancy of the "village".

    *Hat of Disguise ;-)

    Tanya walks in the center of the group with Pads Quietly Over Snow, her wolf, close by her side.

    "Well, I suppose we should think about getting a place to stay for the night," she says to no one in particular, "I can hears Pad's stomach from a mile away." With that she continues walking and nodding at the people they pass.

    "Aye," says Jerrick. "Let's find an inn." He leads the search, stopping the first unoccupied local and asking for directions to a good inn. He quite enjoys hanging about in taverns; although he long ago forswore alchohol, he finds watering holes pleasant places, full of fond memories and, more often than not, good-hearted working people.

    It didn't take long at all to find an inn. Though stopping and asking one of the locals provided directions, it was easily apparent you could just have continued walking and you would have seen the faded paint on a large sign. It read 'Inn of the Welcome Wench', and once held a well painted picture of a woman holding a mug. However, that was where the majority of the faded paint was. The Inn was fairly large, with well trimmed shrubs, a nicely kept yard, and an open stable attached to it.

    Upon entering, you find it to be a fairly typical inn. The main dining hall has a good amount of tables within it, and you can see a door on the opposite end which is left open that looks like it holds a more private dining room. In front of the entrance is the usual counter, with a black haired and pale skinned woman standing behind it. She does not smile upon your entering, simply nodding to acknowledge your precense. Behind her is a set of stairs, most likely to rooms upstairs, and a closed door off against the wall.

    The general quiet and calm atmosphere is permiated with the sound of fairly off tune music. A single elf sits near the far corner with a lute, looking like he's trying his best but just not managing a tune. There are three or four others in the inn, minding their own business. One, a sharp-featured man with close cropped black hair seems to be watching you in between bites of the meal in front of him.

    Hedwan looks to the others, "we planning on staying long?" The tone of voice seems to make you think that the gnome doesn't prefer to sit around in a faded old inn for too long.

    Tanya goes up to the person who is watching her,

    "Is there something you would like?" Tanya asks, "I noticed that you were watching us and I thought maybe you wanted something."

    With that she takes a chair and sits while waiting for his answer.

    Jerrick returns the other man's stare, briefly, as he approaches the woman behind the bar. The place wasn't terribly active or welcoming, but it was the middle of the day. He acknowledges the woman with a nod of his own, and when he gets close, he leans an elbow on the bar.

    "Ma'am." He nods his head again- a bow, of sorts, from this position. "Jerrick Brewer. How're you doin' today?" His accent is that of the city, and not the rich of the city, and his clothes are simple. His hair is short and light brown, and his blue eyes are friendly, apparently genuinely interested in the answer to the question.

    ooc: The interaction will go back and forth for a bit before it take hold, I expect, but Diplomacy +7.
