Endur's Return to the Temple of Elemental Evil

Lenya almost has to laugh about Craven's comment, but barely manages to only smirk.

“You havn't been to Telna's often recently, no? Otherwise you surely would know about Toriah the dancer! And he's actually quite good, I might say. I'd be glad to have you come with us, Thoriah, especially if you are as good a sword as you are an entertainer,” she says with a friendly wink.

Toriah smiles gallantly and bows in Craven's directly, doffing an imaginary cap. "As the fair lady says, I am Toriah. No last name. I have been spending my days working at Telna's and my nights dancing. The people are hardly ever satisfied, but I do my best," he concludes mock-modestly. He then grins again. "I'm in th' mood for some adventure."

"Wizard, sorcerer... What's there in a name? You're just itching to get your hands on some spiders and bat guano and whatelse anyway."

"What's there to not to like about an extra meatsh- uh, warrior between whatever threat we happen to encounter and me an' my crossbow?" Kerwyn says with a wink to Toriah.

"Sorry, I just never knew your name, or forgot it if I knew it. I can be terrible with names sometimes," Craven says apologetically.

Redithidoor Halfmoon says to Toriah, "After the songs I will sing of this adventure, no one will ever forget your name again."

Looking at the gnome Nierethi Poscurian, who repeatedly reminds everyone how he will claim the first pick of treasure, Lenya asks: “Then, how about you tell us, why you claim that, friend. You must think of yourself as incredibly important to our little adventure. Say, what do you base your claims on? I heard it is quite common, that treasure is split evenly among everyone, where those who need anything get first picks not those who scream the loudest. That would be more to my liking as well.”

Toriah rolls his eyes goodnaturedly at all the comments and hefts his pack. "We leavin'? All these conversations can be done while walkin', am I wrong?"

Lenya grins broadly. “Looks like you are even more anxious than the rest of us. But you are right, of course. Let's head out then!”

With these words and an adventerous smile on her lips, Lenya moves out of the Welcome Wench, waving good-bye to Vesta and Maridosen and mentally saying hello to her first big adventure.

Toriah follows Lenya closely. "I'm used t' a bigger place. This little town's too small fer me. I need some adventure to spice up m'life."

The adventurers walk outside into the night. The Moon is full and the Stars are bright.

The demi-humans can see fine in the limited light; the humans stumble occassionally on roots or loose stones as they travel towards the outskirts of town.

Nierethi responds to Lenya, "I was the first of us to mention the idea that there was treasure in the Moathouse, so I should get first pick. Its only fair. In particular, I want an item said to have belonged to the warlord that ruled the Moathouse. A sphere; some tales say it is made of gold, others silver, or onyx. I want the sphere as my pick of the treasure."

"And the sphere could be anything, including something you would not want. I could be powerful evil magic, cursed, or even something gaudy and worthless to lure treasure-seekers. We must be cautious and not let greed rule us," Craven says, his tone a bit didiactic as he recites a fragment of St. Cuthbert's Commandments of Virtue.

"Besides, it might just happen that said sphere has already been taken by some sticky fingers before we get to dividing the loot," Kerwyn says. And almost trips over. He mumbles something not-so-nice about mage-conjured roots set there just to catch him unawares.

"There will be time to divide the treasure when we are safe in the inn, with our spoils laid out on a table replete with ale and fine food. Until then, I think we should worry more about the walking dead and less about the very stationary goods they guard."

Toriah laughs softly at the conversation, and reminds himself to keep an eye out for anyone who might have those "sticky fingers" Kerwyn mentioned. Wouldn't do for one of this group to take before we have a chance to look, he thinks.

The gnome repeats the words Craven spoke and nods his head."Powerful evil magic. I've learned a few spells. I'm not afraid of my treasure."

The adventurers hear the sound of someone running behind them, footsteps falling quickly on the dirt road.

The human merchant Chat from the Yeomanry catches up to the party. He is wearing a backpack and has a rapier at his belt.

"I figured someone better come along on this fool quest to make sure you aren't taken by the undead."

"Soon there'll be too many of us to actually fight the living dead unless we happen to encounter them on a field," Kerwyn says jokingly.

“Thanks for your concerns, Chat, but don't call us fools. Someone must find out what's going on there. It's all for the better!”
