    GM: Yep, my mistake

    Edit: I think I am going to call him Uncle Jaz from now on to avoid confusion.

    Uncle Jaz drags Jax through the door and plops him down on a nearby seat. It's awful! he announces, sitting down not waiting for Jax to speak. The family is in trouble! There's this Tiefling, his name is Hastings Wellington he is the, shall we say, local crime lord in Bacarte. You were probably too busy robbing houses to know about him...

    Anyway, a while ago his goons came to us demanding "protection" money. At first it was not so much so we paid, but soon the payments became larger and larger. And with this and that and business in a slump we found that we could not pay him at all!


    So we thought "Okay, perhaps he is just a bully and nothing will happen". But then our shipment of metals mysteriously vanished and the week after that our supply shed caught on fire. Now he threatens to burn our whole business down with us inside!

    And worse! He says he'll tell everyone that we have a good for nothing boy who is a thief! Imagine if that gets out what it will do to the business! Why could you have not becomes a salesman like me or something! Even twelfth cousin Nyza is more useful with lighting the furnaces, and mostly he just tries to set things on fire!

    So this is all really your fault! Uncle Jaz says dramatically. That is why you'll give us the 100,000 gold we need.

    Streetwise=20 (rolled or passive)

    You recall that the name Wellington is the same as a local Daunton human, Lord Tarquin Wellington. He is highly respected, but there are whispers of him having dark dealings. His last public appearance was at the arena that just finished a couple months back.

    Streetwise=25(same roll)

    You remember that Hastings Wellington claims to be his son. Word on the street is that he left Daunton a couple years ago and set up shop in Bacarte. He is rumored to have set up various smuggling, gambling and other illegal enterprises in the area.

    Who his mother is nobody can say, but it is rumored that she is or was the third wife of Lord Tarquin Wellington and some kind of demoness. Tarquin's polygamous relationships have long been gossip, but not enough evidence to prosecute him has ever been had (Polygamy is a crime in Daunton). There is many men and women of various half-human races claiming to be his children, that is for certain.

    Dorn, no stranger to family troubles, raises an eyebrow at Jaz.

    "All his fault, you say? Somehow I doubt that." Dorn scratches his head. "Wellington... Wellington... Rings a bell. Yes, of course, Lord Wellington. High and mighty fellow, although I've heard rumors he's been involved in some dark deeds. But he's no Tiefling - he's a human. I think I saw him at the arena before our last adventure, just a few months back." (Streetwise 20)

    "Hastings Wellington, eh? I hear he claims to be Lord Wellington's son. Along with a dozen other halfbloods looking for spare change, to be sure. Seems ol' Tarquin has a taste for the exotic in his ladies, or at least that's the rumor in Bacarte. Hmm, I should ask Madame Ketratek about that; if there's any truth to it, she's probably the one who'd know." Quagmire blows foam off of a large tankard in Uncle Jaz' direction. He appears none the worse for his chondrichthyan interlude. "So you're in it with Hastings, eh?"

    OOC: Madame Ketratek is from Quagmire's background. Feel free to use her or not as you see fit. If I put my mind to it, there are probably handful of other Bacarte-related NPCs that Quagmire has had previous dealings with; if you want I could have a try at writing down something about them. Oh, and streetwise 28

    No, I told you! He is blackmailing and threatening us! We don't want to have have anything to do with him! Jaz says, making a face at the mention of Madame Ketratek. He found the ways of softskins disturbing.

    Jaz! Who are these people? Why are you hanging around these softskins and this,this,this whatever!? Jaz says pointing to Sir ExSixTen and the party.

    Jax decides to answer that in the kobold language.

    Draconic
    "Why? Look how tall they are! I mean, do you have any idea how many things have tried to eat me since you all kicked me out? These softskins are all vicious killers, so they're good protection. Like bodyguards!"

    Jax motions to Sir Exsixten with that last statement.

    "Anyway, one hundred thousand gold? Did someone drop your egg on the ground? I don't have that kind of money! I don't know anybody in Daunton that I could take it from, either." Jax then mumbles, "Maybe I could rob a bank or something..."
