    Reinert crosses the street and sneaks in when the door opens to let someone out. You walk to the bottom of the stairs, the two gaurds are human males, one with a longsword, the other with a punching dagger. You are able to sneak by them and crawl under the rope and go up the stairs.

    You see Richard, V'skar and a nicely dressed gentleman (Councilman Tervena). You move into a good positon to overhear him while not being in danger of being bumped into.

    V'Skar is speaking. Thank you for you interest in my cargo, I am sure you will be pleased with them.

    Councilman Tervena responds. I am sure I will. He turns to Richard. So what happened to your pretty little wife? I did not see her with you this morning.

    I left her, I wanted to move to Fy so I could be of more service to you, but she did not want to leave her sister in Corn Haven. It is regrettable, but she did not have the stomach for the work ahead of us and would have gotten in the way eventually anyway.

    Very prudent of you, but I do not want you making your alligences known at this time. Make sure you keep it quiet. As a matter of fact, I would feel more comfortable, if instead of making Fy your new home, you would take a post in Serwil. Here are papers explaining your skills to my agent, Erantur. He is an elf I hold in great esteem. He hands Richard a scroll.

    The Councilman turns to V'Skar. If you would be so kind as to escort my new gaurdians to Hillmon and turn them over to my trainer, Umgonil, I would be in debt to you. I did not expect such a present from my old friend. Then I would have a word with you in a more private venue. Come to my manor when you return and I will have a reward for you, and a new mission, if you are interested.

    Of course my lord. He dips his head in repect.

    They quickly finish their tea and depart.

    Reinert

    Reinert listens carefully as they speak, scarcely believing he's getting away with this. He stays until the leave, then follows them out as judiciously as possible. He then hurries across the street to the gang. Sneaking up behind Cattivo, he slaps him vigorously on the back. "Hey - wake up, Helfy! Listen, gang. V'skar is going to drop off his owlbears and return here to meet counselman Tervena. Richard is going to move to Serwill, but maybe not today, so I'm going to follow Richard home, then return. If you have any more invisibility spells, I'll evesdrop again to hear what Tervena is going to tell V'skar to do for his next mission. So I'm out of here, unless anyone has a better idea."

    Reinert was in the tea house for 10 min, so you have 20 min left until your invisibility wears off.

    You follow Richard. He heads off to the market place, you see him stop at several stalls and purchase items. Then he continues on to the south. You follow and he continues down several sidestreets and alleys. He appears to be making sure he is not being followed. Finally, he goes into a small dank shop with out windows and a small sign that simply says "Eberon - components". Before he comes out the invisibility wears off.

    Reinert will make a note of the location, then return to the others. "Richard was being pretty wary, and I decided it didn't matter so much where he was currently staying anyway. I left him when he went into what seemed like a magic shop. Perhaps we'll check that out again later, Kaltide. Anyway, I wanted to be sure to be back in time for V'skar's next meeting with Tervena. "

    Reinert will relate everything her heard inside.

    "Do you have another invisibility spell, Kaltide. It would be nice to evesdrop again when V'skar returns. In any case, if we want to resolve all these shenanigans, we should probably head to Serwil and take him out along with the elf."

    "Sorry, I only prepared one. I didn't know we'd need more.

    "The way I see it, our options are three:
    One: Follow Richard to Serwil and investigate the agent Erantur. Perhaps we can discover what these people are up to, and thwart it.

    Two: Follow V'Skar to Hillmon and check out the animal trainer. If he can train owlbears, he surely has a collection of other animals we would do well to eliminate.

    Three: Stay here and investigate Councilman Tervena, who seems to be the ringmaster, but we might be out of our league going for the big fish first."

    "I say we jump Richard on his way to this Serwil. Once that's deal with, we can read the letter to the elf. It may be that we should continue on to Serwil and deal with the elf, as well." Cattivo curls his lip, "The one thing we're clearly not short on is people to fight."

    The half-elf considers for a few moments, then continues.

    "If we deal with both Richard and this Erantur, then return as swiftly as we can, we might be able to listen in on V'Skar's next meeting with the councilman, and then decide whether to deal with the animal trainer, or whatever new scheme V'Skar is being sent on."

    OOC: Pardon me if I've just forgotten, but do we know where Serwil is? If so, how far is it?

    "At this point, I agree. Let's kill Richard. That Bastard is clearly involved in ugly stuff. But if we do go off & do that now, I think it's unlikely we'll get back in time for V'skar's next meeting. Not that we could evesdrop without the invisibility spell, but we could follow V'skar after that. We already know where Richard is going. I've no taste for another confrontation with owlbears or the like. I'd vote against Kaltide's option 2."

    (If Cid is there, not sure, havn't been following too closely since my character wasn't too involved in the tracking incident)

    "I'm not afraid to confront any sort of evil. The church in this region may be fairly weak compaired to my homeland, but undoubtedly we could arrange a mustering of force if we can prove our case. I'd also state that I'm not afraid to confront anyone who stands against my cause, just so long as we do so during the hours of daylight."

    Cid ponders his new-found courage, and thinks that perhaps he is only saying what he has been trained for so long to say. He then changes the subject a bit, "Whatever you choose, Ra-Pelor has seen to it that I aid you compatriots in finding the greatest foundation of knowledge and experience necessary to fulfill my god's divine will..."

    "You know, if we could head off Richard and kill him. Depending on what that scroll says, we might be able to pass ourselves off as agents of Tervena. I think Richard is probably our best bet. Tervena is probably well established in this town, and we could get in a lot of trouble tussling with him in this place."
