"Of course I'm in! And I'm curious to what's for dinner as well," Wilhelm says with a smile to Searinox.

Having the half-elf's attention, the human warlock Wilhelm nods towards Darien who has walked up to the woman. "Known him long, have you?"
 
Searinox smiles back "why yes, about 6 years now I believe." he then turns to look at Darians latest 'adventure' "He's Always been a ladies man. And he's good at it too."

Veradda excuses herself for a moment and goes to speak with the innkeep. She returns followed by a pot-boy and maid who start setting the table for dinner.

"We are having a bit of everything. A feast worthy of a grand adventure." the half-elven woman says with a cheerful grin.

Soon the innkeep is leading a trio of servants out of the kitchen holding a large platter. When he puts the tray in the center of the table the aroma of roast pork and gravy fill the table. Then the rest of the entrees and sides start to fill the table as the others place the bowls, platters, and dishes they carry.

There is grilled trout, roasted quail, and side of brisket that must have come from a giant version of a bull. The side dishes include, buttered red potatoes, peas&onions, grilled yams coated with brown sugar, and of course the house specialty - roasted green tomatoes.

A feast fit for a king's table and the group celebrates till they are all joking about not being able to walk (even to the boat).

Meanwhile....

Darien had slipped out the back with the mischievous barmaid. She led him to a dark secluded spot, that had the noble wondering if this was the first time she had ever been to it. After some cuddling and kissing the barmaid cuddled up cozily against Darien's bare chest and started making plans for their future.

Taking up his plate Searinox starts filling it with a little bit of everything, to get a Taste for what to pick next. As he does he sees Buddy, and turns around to Darian, "If you don..." No Darian to be found.
He turns back around and shrugs, "Well, more for us then. Could I get another tankard of your strongest Stout?" he then continues eating.

OOC: if Darian is taking to long to get back before everything is eaten Sear will try to keep a few things that Darian would like to the side.

Fareon sampled a variety of food, eschewing utensils and often testing the capacity of how much food could be crammed into his craw. In between open mouthed chews he gave his new allies a greasy smile. "So much food!"

Buddy’s eyes lit up at the food. He immediately began to put a little of everything on his plate, wanting to try it all. He took seconds and thirds from the dishes he especially liked. Downing it with another mug of ale, he sat back, happy.

“Alright, you’ve talked me into it. We can go. But when we get to the wagon, I get to ride in it.”

"Sure you get to ride in it till it is full of treasure, then I'm afraid it may not be a very comfortable ride back to Waterdeep," Veradda laughs as she eats a small plate of fish and grilled green tomatoes.

The rest of dinner is filled with small talk of adventures long past and what the future may bring.

OOC: I will post up a long post getting the group ahead (and boated safely south) unless anyone has anything else they wish to do.

Darien returns an hour or so later and starts to pick at the remains of the meal. "Seari, you are too good to me." He says as he accepts the food set aside for him by his friend.

Wilhelm has been eating hungrily, but not without manners. He frowns at the lack of table manners of Fareon, but holds his tongue, knowing that friendship is more important than etiquette.

"Thank you for the wonderful meal," he says earnestly to Veradda halfway during dinner. "I only hope we can complete our mission successfully so I can repay your trust."

After that, Wilhelm tries to get Searinox to talk about his life, perhaps any adventuring he's been into.

"So did you meet Darien during an adventure? Are you an adventurer? My mother used to be an adventurer. Have you heard of the Fortune's Friends?"

The young man brims with enthusiasm, but stops himself as he realizes this. "Apologies for my prodding. I was born half a world away from anything exciting, so I'm very curious about new people."
 
Searinox winks at Darian, then turns to Wilhelm anf laughs, "Me? An adventurer? No, though the trip from Mirabar every other month could count as a adventure i guess." he takes small sip from his drink. "So No, not on a adventure, he helped me settle a despute some time ago and we just kept around since then."
He then leans in closer to Wilhelm "What about you then? Trying to follow in your mothers footsteps?"

"Mirabar?" Wilhelm wonders. "Isn't that mostly dwarves who come there?"

Flushing a bit, the young man nods. "I grew up with the tales of my mother's adventures. It's almost as if I experienced them myself, and I knew I had to be an adventurer! Finding treasure and magical lore... T-to defeat evil and help people, I mean," he ends awkwardly.

“Because your god turns out to have a sense of humor and wants to watch you flail about like a fish out of water?” Buddy said matter of factly.

"I just like to have a bit of fun and excitement. I've had some fun tonight and now I'm ready for excitement." Darien says as he finishes eating gently sips at his wine.

After everyone has eaten their fill and readied themselves, they follow Veradda Stoor out of The Jade Jug, and make their way to the docks of Waterdeep. The sun still has a few hours of light left in it when your welcomed aboard a long keel-boat called The Sea Spear, its short width and sharp prowl living up to its namesake. The captain is a Triton by the name of Ghasilfel Tate,

Casting off after everyone is aboard your new company watches as Waterdeep drifts by and then behind, till a curve in the land puts the city out of sight. The open sea is before you and you catch the talk of some of the crew. From what you overhear it sounds like there has been trouble with giants again, this time unruly storm giants, whom usually keep to themselves. Ships have gone missing and the weather has been terriblie unpredictible.

Veradda and the capatin are just coming back from his cabin, the half-elf with a bright smile on her face. "Captain Ghasilfel was just telling me about the goings on at Nightstone." she says looking out to sea and still smiling. "Word came down the Ardeep River that the central stone that the keep is named after is now covered in glowing runes, where before there was nothing marking the black stone. They could be anything, a map to untold riches, the incantation to some new spell, or even a portal stone trying to open and just needing someone to figure out where the door knob is."

She turns around excitedly and nods to the captain, "I'll go with you up river captain ready a longboat for when we arrive." It is then the captain's turn to smile and as he does he turns and walks back to the other side of the boat giving out orders.

"I can't pass up this opportunity. The first person to discover the secret to Nightstone. It would make me famous." she laughs. "But I hope you all will stay on with this quest and meet me in Nightstone after you've found the Cult's treasure."

She looks at everyone expectantly as if she were a child asking permission from one of her parents.

When Veradda is not around, Darien asks the captain how long he's known Veradda. And ask how long this stone has been glowing with runes.

Wilhelm is thrilled, standing at the railing and just watching the sea. So much water! He'd never been at sea before, and despite knowing the stories, he was awed. At first glance, the water was all the same, but upon closer inspection, deeper shades of blue and green intersected with lighter colors, and sometimes fish could be seen swimming just below the surface.

If it wasn't for the triton captain, Wilhelm wouldn't have noticed Veradda returning. He turns to her and Ghasilfel, and smiles at the captain. After several moments, Wilhelm realizes he is staring at the man, and looks away with some effort.

"Nightstone, yes, yes," he stutters, his mind catching up with what Veradda has just said. "So you'll go to Nightstone, and we find you there after we've acquired the Cult's illgotten gains? You'll not be joining us, then?"

He then looks at the others, his halfling friend in particular, to see how they feel about it. "Think we can pull this off without the lady?"

Upon seeing the Triton, Fareon's jaw went slack, and hung open for long moments. His awkward staring in amazement of the amphibian man truly only stopped once they made way. Amazement turned to sickness and the halfling who grew up in grassy plains as far as the eye could see was pitching his rather large dinner over the side of the ship..The sheer amount of fluid expelled seemed to defy physics. In between bouts Fareon wiped his face and Wolf licked his cheek of what remained, in obvious concern. "What kind of madmen invented this means of travel???"

When their captain said his name, and indeed anytime anyone says his name, Buddy follows it with “Bless you.”

The Sea was not kind to Buddy. He spends most of his time with his head hanging over the side, the contents of his stomach being offered to the sea in exchange for a safer voyage.
