    "Hmmm, now there is something I didn't expect! You would actually let me proposition you?" The voice says with a little lewd humor. "Ahem. Anyway, I might consider making a counter-offer to you but first I'd have to know what Lucias has promised you for your services."

    Please give me a Diplomacy check as well.

    "Tell him," Elthic whispers. He doesn't trust Lucias any more than he can throw him.

    I was looking things over, and I was wondering about trap XP. Elthic disarmed a trap, so we'd get trap XP for that... but what about the traps we suffered through? For example, the first stairway trap? DMG says we get XP for living through traps (and we did, if barely). If you're not planning on awarding the XP, that's cool, but I was just wondering if maybe that was an oversight, or something.

    I'm not really concerned about it, either way. Elthic still has a long way to go until level 2.

    "Go ahead and tell our...erm, host, Eleria," says Abdul, who is beginning to wonder just what is with Lucias Darque.

    Now feeling well in control of the situation, Eleria speaks up in a much more confident tone as she casually struts about the entrance.

    ôLucius has promised us the sum of 800 gold pieces each for our services; and I fully intend to collect on that payment unless you can very well convince me otherwise! He must want to claim ownership of this place very much.ö

    OOC: Actually was planning on it, just hadn't gotten around to it yet. 400 XP total for suffering through and then disabling the stairs pit trap. Post with The Voice's response forthcoming...

    "Hmmm. 800 gold, each. Pretty hefty sum for Lucias the tightwad. He must REALLY want this place so he can burn it down or something. Because you've got to know that he doesn't want (or need) this place to live in. He's got a better place of his own already. Not to mention wanting to erase any record of his cousin who has been a 'stain' on his family's reputation. Ah, that must be it..." the voice muses. "I bet he expects to loot this place before burning it down and make back whatever he paid you. And he could do it too. There's enough here I'm sure to pay you more than Lucias is offering, and I'm not just talking about money. Allahastor was a wizard after all, and his spellbook is laying right here in the top room of the tower...

    "Anyway,"
    it continues "I'm sure I could top his price, but I'd have to look around a bit to make sure exactly what I have to offer. You could sweeten the pot a little though if you would take care of a couple minor problems for me though. You see, not every thing in this house has been set in place on purpose for the sole benefit of keeping people out. A few things have just sort of gotten out of hand since Allahastor's death. If you would help me out by removing these couple pests, I'd be in debt to you myself. I would even tell you what awaits you in those areas so you could better prepare. For instance, in the kitchen (which is in the ground level room of the tower) there are several large rats that have taken over and in the room above that a shocker lizard has broken free of the cage that contained it and has been wrecking the laboratory. Also, it you come to the second floor from the tower side, it will be much easier to deal with "Fluffy". If you insist on going up these stairs, I'd advise only letting one person step off the stairs until Fluffy is dealt with."

    "So, what do ya say to my offer so far?"
    the voice asks in anticipation.

    Ah, cool. So you hadn't forgotten. Awesome.

    400 XP each, right?

    ***

    Elthic listens to the house, and begins to feel a knot of apprehension in his stomach. Did they just betray Lucias? Lucias was a jerk, true, to be so disrepectful to his family, but did that warrant...?

    He listens to the house, wondering if he'll be walking into a trap.
