    Lora frowned her eyebrows and brushed her ponytail with her slender fingers. "You seem to be quickly drawn to your blades by a lad and a girl of such young an age as ourselves. Please, as the sworn swords of Lord Bairan, point us to his tent, as we have been sent with urgent news - Aidan here already mentioned that."

    She was not hostile, but the girl had no intention of apologizing for just being somewhere. Men were too eager to jump in to violence for no apparent reason.

    "Yuse' iggets ain't suppose ta be heres," a young scrawny soilder near the back says. His tabard is a little rumppled and he still wears his conical helm, though he is the only one. He looks to the others after speaking.

    Bolstered by a few nods from the older men he continues, "If'n yuses trulys' wants no trouble gets on backs ta where ya's belong." He steps forward as he says this and stands in front of the group with his arms crossed and his chest puffed out.

    Aidan blinks as they were rebutted and denied audience. Aidan thought he recalled Fallon initially saying that a man was missing, and had been seeking a search party. If that party had not returned, that means not only was one man at risk, but many. He didn't have time for this boy to stroke his ego.

    "Eh? 'iggets? Miss Loreen, I reckon Fallon'd be right angry if we didn't get this 'ere message to Lord Bairan, seein' as there be lives at risk... How mad d'ya think Bairan'd be with these blokes once he finds out they got several men killed 'cause they didn't let Fallon's news through?"

    OOC: Do you need another diplomacy or Intimidate check, Holy?

    Your comments are good enough for a successful aid another check so if ML wants to roll a Diplomacy check for Loreen (lol) then she would get a +2 to the roll. Going to give you an auto success for the above post. Go ahead ML you can try a little diplomacy (can't wait to read this).

    Lora raised an eyebrow at the soldier. She struggled a bit with the strong desire to give the moron a piece of her mind, or to just leave and continue with her own business. Finally, the girl decided it was time for some eloquence and proceeded: "Indeed. I understand you fine men of the sword are vigilant and guard your Lord well, but we are naught but fresh recruits sent on an errand by one whom you know. Now, we'll leave if that is what you think Lord Bairan would want. But when dead bodies start turning up tomorrow, you will be answering to his Lordship personally."

    Lora's gut was boiling with a quiet rage - an insecure, scrawny piece of village idiot was now trying to boost his pathetic ego by hiding behind his armor and the tabard with Bairan's coat of arms. She hated dealing with him, hated everyone's aggressive attitude and really hated their damn stuborness. Fortunately, the girl was smart enough not to reveal her emotions, but to play along with Aidan. "He is not as dumb as he seems." Lora thought, as she observed the reactions of the armed men.

    Diplomacy: 8+1=9 lol as if i had taken 10 with my natural -1 CHA

    The Unfriendly Bunch (as played by me)

    "Yuses iggots don't get it, do ye?" the scrawny man says. "Yur just not welcomes here yur nots welcome in this army. So whatever lies ye have concocted to keep yurself from the strap once yur caught pilfering keep them in yur mouths."

    He turns to a big man beside him and asks, "Didn't you lose a whetstone and razor the other day Jaks? Right afore ye could shave too and now look at all the itchin it's a causing. Iggots did that you can be sure."

    The big man lowers the hand he was using to scratch his stubble and puts it on his sword hilt. "Yeahs, gone for true and it was me best." Jaks replies with a scowl.

    "Gets on back to yur side of camp, or we wills send ye back in a sack." the little man says with a smirk and nod to Jaks.

    Lora was done being polite - that little weasel had to be dethroned right quick, before the rest of the men decided to just go along with his words. "So, - Lora turned towards the others. - Is he the smartest of the group, that you men decided to follow his direction? - she pointed towards the scrawny man in front of her - He can barely speak coherently, and yet endangers all of you with his attitude towards us. I have written proof of my mission with Lord Bairan. If you care about your jobs and hides you will at least take a look at the document i carry. Plus, the men that i say escorted me troguh camp might just get a bonus - you are soldiers after all, men of law and duty. Not brighands."

    "Again with the insults..." Aidan muttered, frowning. What was it with these men? Were all soldiers stupid, rude buffoons? "I ain't got no plans ta rob nobody, but yer gonna rob several men their lives 'less ye take us ta Lord Bairan, or call him here even. Either way, the lady and I need ta tell him our news... or Martomum may throw himself into dire danger. Or... do you jes' want an excuse ta fight, an' don't much care who it is?" Aidan leaned over to Loreen a moment and whispered quietly, "P'raps one o' us keeps 'em busy while ta'other calls fer tha Lord?"

    you made them laugh...

    "Mart?" the man asks "Yur heres fur Mart the Fart?" he then breaks down in fit of laughter and is soon joined by all the other men there.

    Laughing while Aidan continues to talk the men don't seem to hear the rest of what he has to say. Wiping a tear from the corner of his eye he looks to Loreen and Aidan, gives them a mocking bow and says, "By all means yuses should go straight away to seein his Lordship, just follow the tents to the center of our camp." he replys then starts another fit of laughter.

    Looking on the men all gather round their fire putting their backs to the two irregulars (iggots). All save Jaks who watches them like a hawk till they leave.

    Lora stormed off in the direction the men pointed, determined to stop running pointless errands if Lord Bairan treated them in a similar manner. After all, if men's lives were in danger why would Fallon send two people he has never met in his life?

    Discipline seemed to be lacking on both sides of the camp, as the regular soldiers behaved more like older children bulliying the younger ones, than as professional warriors. Lora was on the verge of dropping this pointless task and getting herself far away from these swine, but she had already given her word, which still meant something to her.
