"Oi, that be a fancy set of new armor Shorrin, it be lookin' good wit' yer scales, ye'll put the fear inta their hearts that's fer sure" he adds, patting the dragonborn's shoulder.

Minor Trickster (Lvl 4)
It is an odd sight, seeing a dragonborn blush. Yet there he was standing on the docks of a strange land, blushing like a shy teenager. "Thank you friends."

The harbor is busy and the city of Allar is the most rebuilt city of the old Empire; however, it is still a small town compared to Daunton. It has the feel of a frontier town, with a rough edge and little excesses. There are traders, merchants, and farmers about the streets traveling or setting up carts. Charles mentioned that the family, Landreau, lives just outside the swamps of Allaria outside Old Daunton. Dextyr carries a letter of introduction to the family.

Shorrin learns that the swamps are far to the south in Allaria. The town of Shule lies at the edge of a great swampland. It is the home of many chemists and herbalists. As a result, the main exports are ritual components, potions, and acids. Shule has recent started lobbying for membership in the New Allarian League, but no decision has been made yet. Travel there will take half a day by ship.

Acolyte (Lvl 2)
Janus starts to talk to merchants, in particular one's that would be likley to have caravans to and from the south. Trying to get a grasp of the emotions of the people from this foreign land.

//I'm back. Thanks for your patience.//
Tonk grows bored watching the captain and joins the rest of the party (after forcing the captain to write a letter of reference on the excellence of defense against pirates). On the way, he stops by the offices of the harbor master and steals a copy of the registry that describes the passengers and cargo of all incoming ships.

Janus surmises that travel across Allaria is dangerous. Most caravans hire guards or mercenaries to travel and they usually leave daily for various destination, mostly Old Daunton. Travel by land is slow, but with provisions it may take a week to get to the outlying cities. Shule in particular is dangerous to reach as the swamp harbors lizardmen and the surrounding area has seen odd bandit activity lately.
Tonk gets a list of other vessels, many heading to other Isles but some heading to the other coastal cities of Allaria: Fromish, Golmgard, Geardagas, and Shule (going south to avoid the Empire of Hzaka) He actually notices the Perola Negra on registry in the past and notes that it claims to sail around the longer southern tip of the Isle.

"Hmmm...I ain't much fer travelin' through no lizard-infested swamps and besides we had such a good time on tha ship, right?" Murphy says with a smile, "Maybe if yer lucky Tonk, thay'll be more of those rats fer ya to bash" he adds.

The group hires a few crew members with some of the gold they received and puts Captain Passerine under "house arrest" in his cabin. The journey is swift and by late afternoon the group arrives off-shore from Shule. The coastline is dotted with mangrove trees and the harbor is only a small inlet along the swampy expanse. Leaving the captain under lock and key and the crew under the supervision of a calm Saraz, the group goes ashore in the dinghy.
The only ship offshore, the approach of the group goes with much notice. The townsfolk move away from any approach, but eventually a man approaches and challenges the group. He speaks with an odd drawl in his voice. Bonjour travelers, what business do ya have in Shule? I'm Densieski and the mayor hereabouts.
