    "Manachan, could you provide distraction, by appearing on the main entrance? Maybe talking to the people, assuade their fears and convince them we're doing what we can. Once we slip out, you can join us."

    "I'll go with him," Brindom offers. "I don't think he should go out alone."

    Manachan nods almost eagerly at the suggestion, happy to have a use in the drama that's unfolding. When the rest of the group is ready he retraces his steps to the front doors and - after a moment's hesitation - throws them open, Brindom in tow. "Be ready to yank me back and pull the doors closed if this goes wrong," he urges. He steps through and holds his hands high.

    "Citizens . . . Proud Citizens! Korvosa needs your help!" He then stands with hands up, looking as regal, commanding and empathetic as he possibly can. He repeats his first words every few seconds until he begins to get the crowds attention, then continues. We all have felt the bite of this foul illness, have all - myself included - known someone important to us who's been affected. Please be assured that the priests and physiks here-in are doing all they can to find a remedy and to figure out the best possibly way to get it distributed to every one of you!

    It is our intention that none shall be left to the devices of this illness if we can possibly avoid it.

    At such time as we find a cure, it will be important that we be able to find you . . . and if we go to your home and no one answers because you are here besieging the temple we'll have no way to deliver the cure to you!

    Please . . . please, I beseach you . . . return to your homes and allow us to work for this cure. Go home . . .


    He'll talk as long as they'll listen. If he finishes and the crowd disperses, all to the good. If it doesn't end that well he'll talk until Brindom loses his nerve and yanks him back through the doors, and hope it's enough to allow the others to escape.

    Manachan's impassioned plea seems to do the trick. Although there are gruimbles, and mutters of "We'll be back", the crowd disperses. After this, getting to Citadel Volshyenek is no problem, and you arrive as the Marshal is finishing an address to her men.

    The members of the Korvosan Guard not currently on other duties are gathered in the courtyard. On a podium in front of them stands the Marshal, and next to her a strange gathering of people. Three veteran guards stand to attention. To one side of Croft are three men in long leather coats, wearing satchels and holding a bird-like doctor's mask under an arm. To the other side, a tall woman in full plate armour, a sword and shield at her side and her blank-faced helm sporting a red plume.

    "You will escort Doctor Davaulus and his men in their royal duties wherever those might take them. Furthermore, you are to consider orders from any of the queens new order of Grey Maidens to be as binding as any superior officer in the Korvosan Guard or Sable Company. You are guardsmen of Korvosa. You will not balk. These are dire times and your city needs these healers. Your city needs you. Your patrol leaders have your assignments. Dismissed!"

    With that, the guardsmen and the figures on the podium begin to disperse.

    Manachan stands watching, curiosity evident on his handsome features.

    Dj'hn cautiously pokes his head out of Edmond's backpack once the armored delegation disperses.

    As the crowd disperses and Marshal turns her attention to new arrivals, Edmond stands to attention and salutes. He then spoils somewhat the effect by immediately relaxing instead of waiting for her to aknowledge.

    Thorson holds no expression as he carries his axe slung across his shoulder blades in a non-threatening fashion.

    Brindom bow in hand but at his side also waits for Edmond and the Marshal to discuss this problem. He is ready should he be needed.

    As Doctor Davaulus and his escort pass by, the Prelate steps forwards and offers his hand. "Julius Ishani Dhatri, of the Pantheon," he says. "I hope we can work together in finding a cure for this disease, sir."

    The doctor looks at Julius' hand, and then shakes it enthusiastically. His sad-eyed face breaks into a smile. "It would be an honour, sir. As soon as we are established I will contact your... Pantheon so that we can combine our forces."

    Shortly, the group is left alone in the courtyard with the Marshal, who strides over.

    "I'm glad to see you all safe, my friends," she says. "Difficult times indeed." She hands Edmond a sheet of paper [see attachments].

    "Ma'am, Julius Ishani Dhatri, Prelate of Irori at the Pantheon," says Julius. "I have a favour to ask." Kroft gestures for him to continue. "I'm sure you're aware that panic is growing in the city," he says. "I've come to ask you for help. Our temple is daily besieged by supplicants, and anyone who goes abroad in the garb of a priest is harassed. My people need protection. I thought maybe we could work together to spread healing across the city - my priests and your guards as escort."

    Kroft rubs an ear. "Since these Grey Maidens seem to have supplanted my people in many duties," she says ruefully, "I think we can come to some arrangement."

    "There is another matter, Ma'am," says Julius. He produces a small bottle from within his robes and hands it to Kroft. She reads the label.

    "Lavender's Luxuriant Liniment." She looks at Julius quizzically.

    "It is being sold as a cure for this disease, this 'blood veil' as they are calling it. But I think it's a sham. Someone is, at best, profitting from false hope. They may even be helping to spread the disease by preventing the infected from seeking a proper cure."

    Kroft tosses the bottle to Manachan.

    "Sounds to me like a job for my special agents," she says. "What do you think, gentlemen? Find the culprit, shut them down. You may even be saving them from a worse fate," she adds, pointing to the proclamation in Edmond's hand.

    Dj'hn

    Dj'hn knows (even if he doesn't know how he knows) that Lavender's is the name of a perfumery/apothecary just off Summoning Street near the Heights.
