"A few more questions, if you please, Fenic likes to keep his records tidy." Rotom says, ready to take notes.
"When and where is the appointment?"
"How to identify Coal? Ghulra, body type, other distinguishing features?"
"What kind of crime was it?"
"The commission is 25 gold each with an additional 50 gold each if we bring Coal in?"
"Where are we bringing Coal in to?"

"Ogham, did he say twenty five each? And then another fifty?" DePoe whispers. "What would anyone do with that much money?"

Ogham nods, then shrugs.

”Spend?” he ventures, himself not so interested in money.

"Old Sharn? Isn't that place just a bunch of forsaken ruins? I'm not even sure the Watch has jurisdiction down there. What's going on exactly?"

Alara waits patiently, watching the busy little kobold interview the guardswoman while her other compatriots engage in byplay. She wishes she could share their enthusiasm for the size of the reward being offered. And she it bothers her that she needs it so badly.

"How Coal know we sent by you?" Korra said.

“I’ll give you an official Watch writ of enforcement,” Sergeant Vilroy said. “All nice and legal.”

Studying Sergeant Gilroy, Ogham could sense the woman was holding something back. (Great Insight check!)

"If this Coal is expecting you, why would they trust us to give the information?" DePoe asked.

“The writ will have my official seal on it,” Sergeant Vilroy said. “If he isn’t interested in sharing with you, then you still get paid. I’ll find some other way to try and get the information from him safely. No more questions until I know you’re going to take the job?” She looked at Rotom.

[Assuming they do, she’ll answer Rotom’s questions.]

"When and where is the appointment?" Rotom asked.

“The meet is in two hours at the Cog Carnival in High Walls in Tavick’s Landing,” Vilroy told them. “Lots of warforged hang out there.”

OOC: Two hours across the city on foot.


"How to identify Coal? Ghulra, body type, other distinguishing features?" Rotom asked.

“No idea,” Sergeant Vilroy said. “I never met the ‘forged. You’ll have to ask around at the Cog Carnival when you get there. I’m sure they’ll know her.”

"What kind of crime was it?"
the kobold inquired.

“Don’t know. That’s why I’m hiring you lot. This Coal is supposed to tell me at the meet.”

"The commission is twenty-five gold each with an additional fifty gold each if we bring Coal in? Where are we bringing Coal in to?"
Rotom continued.

“That’s what I said. If her info is legit, bring her in to the Watch station. I’ll meet with her there, and we can offer some protection, if needed.”

"Old Sharn? Isn't that place just a bunch of forsaken ruins? I'm not even sure the Watch has jurisdiction down there. What's going on exactly?"
Liutbrand asked.

“What’s what I want to find out,” Sergeant Vilroy answered. “The Watch doesn’t go down there unless we have to,” she admitted. “If this is legit, we’ll go down and take a look, but I’m not risking good watchmen on a lark.”

Sergeant Vilroy pulled a scroll tube out and opened it. She pulled out the rolled piece of paper and held it out. It had the Watch seal on it. “This authorizes you as deputies of the Watch for the next week. It should get some people a little more cooperative to know you’re official. Just don’t do anything flagrantly illegal.” She rolled it up again and slipped it back into the case, then handed it over to Liutbrand. “You don’t have much time if you’re going to get to the Cog Carnival for the meet.”

Ogham gives Rotom a look of understanding - which is very difficult without facial expressions, so he hopes the kobold knows him enough by now that she can interpret his look as suspicion.

Then the warforged looks around once more, and decides he doesn’t like this spot. Barely any animals around to talk to.

Alara cocks an eyebrow at the sergeant's statement that she is not risking good Watchmen on this. Her concerns are not allayed when the group is deputized.

"So we find forge who not know us and we not know among many forge? Sound crazy," Korra says.
"We'll have to ask around to find him," the Aundairan observes. "And we'd better keep that scroll in our pocket unless there's no way around it."

"Thank you, Sergeant." Rotom looks over what little notes she managed to gather. Placing a mark next to Cog Carnival, she would have to ask about the place from the locals. Returning to Ogham, she acknowledges his look: "Irthosi vur throdenilt irthosi." Secrets and more secrets indeed.

"Are we walking again, then? If so, we'd better get moving."
"I agree with DePoe's swiftness, if not his preferred method of travel. Another carriage?" She asks Liutbrand. "We can go secure one while you finish up here, if you would like."

Liutbrand's felt a strange shiver, a common consequence of his mark of finding activating. Something was up. He instinctively looked at Ogham, noticing a concerning look on his normally expressionless face.
"Thanks Rotom, that would be perfect" he answered.
While the rest of the party started heading out, he exchanged a few more words with the sergeant, making sure to lower his voice:
"Are you withholding information from me, Vilroy? We accepted the job, so I want all your cards on the table. I don't want my people to run unnecessary risks, and you can trust my discretion."

Sergeant Vilroy gave Liutbrand a look. “Just do the damn job, Torrn. I got the rest handled,” she said, shoving the scroll case with their papers and the pouch of 150 gold pieces. (25 gp each) Then she stalked off, disappearing from the airship platform and into the crowd.

OOC: Assuming you catch another Orien coach, it’s 2 cp per person, or 12 cp total. Someone pay.


An hour later, the inquisitor team stepped out of the Orien coach in High Walls, Tavick’s Landing. The stench of body odor, garbage, and tobacco mixed together in the streets. High walls cut this district’s crumbling, vandalized buildings off from the rest of Sharn, though towers rose over the walls like imposing sentries. Many people stood idly on street corners, eying the Plumber’s suspiciously and keeping to themselves. It was simple enough to find a resident who knew where the Cog’s Carnival was, the only warforge bar in the district.

The Cog Carnival was a dilapidated warforged dive bar. The bar had a crumbling stone outside marred with graffiti that says things like, “Forged Are Scrap!” and “Leave, Metalheads!” Approaching the door, an old warforged with a carved chunk of wood replacing a severed foot stopped them.

The warforged pointed at Ogham. “You can go on in fer free,” he said, then looked at the others. “The rest of yeh, it’ll be five copper.” he held out his hand to collect the money.

OOC: I'll pick up the cab ride this time, you are on your own for your cover charge though.

Rotom hands over five shiny copper crowns, making a note in to keep track of her expenses so far, and keeping her Galifars out of sight. The people in the lower parts of the city would kill for one, literally.

Eyeing the Warforged's peg leg she speaks to Ogham, "Up to making a few new friends here? They might not have fur, but I would bet they have quite a bit in common with you."

DePoe know of the Cog Carnival, though he'd never been inside because there had never been need. Now, there was. Having no coin on him (Liutbrand was hold the money satchel), he quickly and quietly attempts to slip by the door guard.

Ogham nods to the other warforged, acknowledging their connection through origin and, most likely, experiences in the War. He does not wait for his companions to pay their entry fee and steps inside.

"Friends are good," he replies, and starts towards a warforged that may seem up to a conversation.

Alara nods polite gratitude to Liutbrand as the group starts filing through the threshold. "How do we proceed?" she asks the House scion. "Do you want to stick together, or split up?"
