Not sure what to buy. Maladiel just wants to give that impression to anyone eavesdropping, to cover up wanting to visit that ranch.
I don't think we need an extensive cover, because finely dressed as Maladiel is and everyone of us keeps together, it's pretty easy to come across as a fancy rich dude (or servant thereof) with some attendents and bodyguards.
Work is quite busy, so I'm not sure when I'll be able to post in the IC. Might not be until next week. If needed, feel free to NPC my character in the meantime.
(Sharing this to several games, so perhaps you'll see me posting quickly after this, or perhaps somewhere else and not here.)
