Hemsoth Farm (Delma, Silvi, Lavina, Hiromi, Galahad)

It wasn’t hard to find the Hemsoth farm, a small farmhouse on land surrounded by open turnip fields. They could see from where the road turned around a copse of trees a young woman was outside hanging washing on the line.

Hiromi put on her friendliest face and waved from the road, "Hello there! Is this, in fact, the Hemsoth farm? We have a delivery for a Pari Hemsoth."
 

Lavina kept a lookup for anyone that might want to interrupt the handoff - nosy parents or neighbors. To serve as a distraction, she'd purchased a pie, and intended to present it as a gift should a distraction be needed. Of course, if the distraction wasn't needed, they would have to eat it, lest it become wasted - but, one had to make sacrifices.

Hemsoth Farm (Delma, Silvi, Lavina, Hiromi, Galahad)

Hiromi called out, and the girl hanging the washing looked surprised as Hiromi approached.

“Um, yes, this is the Hemsoth farm. I’m Pari,” she said.

The door to the cottage opened, and an older woman with a broom barged out.

“Get off my property, you vagrant!” she scolded Hiromi, shaking the broom threateningly at her.

"We're not vagrants, just travellers!" pipes up Silvi cheerfully. "But may the blessing of Desna be upon you, good ma'am! There are lots of extra hands here - surely you could spare a moment to speak about your travails if we pitched in with your work for a short while."

Diplomacy: 1D20+5 = [5]+5 = 10
 

Lavine smiled as she held out the pie. "Howdy, you all," she spoke, in an exaggerated halfling accent. "We baked too many pies and figured we'd be right neighborly and give you a spare one."

Galahad stayed away from the whole thing, not really sure how he might assist even should he want to. Instead, he wandered the woods nearby looking for their lavendar and any other potential alchemy ingredients.

Hemsoth Farm (Silvi, Lavina, Hiromi, Galahad)

Elmora Hemsoth turned her glare on the gnome as Silvi offered their help with chores.

“We are more than capable of handling the farm,” the woman said. She was still threatening with the broom, but she wasn’t hitting anyone with it yet! “I know you an’ your type! Yer with that dwarf caravan that caused all that trouble last night! It’s folks like you that fill my darling Pari’s head with all sorts of crazy thoughts!”

Lavina’s pie was stared at suspiciously. “What kind of pie?” she asked. She clearly wasn’t one to turn down free pie.

Galahad leaves the others with the irate mother and goes poking around in the woods. He recalls that Edra had told them where the rosemary she needs grows. It didn’t seem too far from here.

"We didn't cause any trouble - our friend was murdered," retorts Silvi a bit indignantly. But she was undeterred, and on a mission. "I bet you had your own 'crazy thoughts' once upon a time. Somewhere along the way though life pushed you off that path and you've learned to adapt to this one as best you could. I understand - I might have preferred to stay in one place and think about having a family soon if keeping to a daily routine, doing the same thing day after day, were that not a recipe for Bleaching fast, going insane and dying young. That's being born a Sullenwhither for ya. Tell me what you used to dream of, and maybe by giving voice to it you will find Desna's ear once more."

Galahad could hear voices behind her getting strained already. He'd never done well in social settings and so moved off towards something he was far more comfortable, he headed towards the lavendar patch, figuring he'd be in earshot if it got too intense.
 

While Silvi lectured her mother, Hiromi took Pari aside and presented her with her swords. Wrapped, they were not obvious, but to anyone with the faintest knowledge of these things, they were unlikely to be anything else.

Congratulations, Hiromi whispered to the girl, "Your emancipation is at hand. Respect your mother as you were taught, but do not allow her to dictate the course of your life."

Hemsoth Farm (Silvi, Lavina, Hiromi)

Elmora Hemsoth scowls at Silvi, but the little gnome was keeping her occupied, so Hiromi could sneak around to Pari. Pari took a peek at the swords and gushed in a whisper, “Oh, thank you so very much! I... I don’t suppose you know anyone that could teach me how to use them?” she whispered. “I’m willing to pay.”


Rosemary Bushes (Galahad)


Galahad found the rosemary bushes that Edra had directed them to, so she could make a salve for the horses. Unfortunately, it looks like a bear has decided to make the bushes its den.

Noting the rather large brown bulge sticking out over the top of the bushes, Galahad decides to change his strategy. He turns back and returns silently back the way he had come.

Hiromi whispered to Pari, "I can show you a thing or two, sure. But I'm not sure how long we'll be around here. You'll have to see me at the Feedmill, and possibly come with us when we go..."

Silvi takes a small gulp as Elmora scowls at her. The woman might not be dangerous but being the focus of her ire was still a bit scary. She pressed on. "Even if you have really given up on the fancies of youth, would you be amenable to receiving a dream sent by the goddess?" She pulls out her medallion and hold it up for the big lady to see. "If the health of this farm really is your main concern then perhaps you may receive some insight about the land or unlock some old memories of lessons passed down to you. All you need to do is find a good place to rest for a few minutes and accept the blessing of Desna. You need not worry - any dream I bestow must be true and good, lest she take back the gifts she has bestowed on me."
 

"It's boysenberry. Seasoned with fresh cinnamon. Crust is cooled on a sill and sprinkled with a little bit of spun sugar and treacle. The over was cooking it at..."

Lavina effortlessly delved into the intricacies of pie-making as only a halfling could, making sure to wave it in front of her target's face so that the scent would be distracting.

“Whatever you can teach me would be great!”
Pari whispered to Hiromi. “Thank you very much!”

As a downtime activity, Hiromi can now earn money using her attack modifier to train Pari how to fight.

Elmora looked at the holy symbol Silvi held up. “Well, can’t say no to a bit of advice or prayers,” the old woman allowed. “But you just stay away from here on out. I don’t need my daughter runnin’ off and gettin’ killed like her fool brother did, runnin’ off to the war like that.” A look of pain flashed briefly across Elmora’s face.

The smell of the pie caught her attention, and she listened intently to Lavinia’s recipe, making a few comments on some variations that might be tried.


Rosemary Bushes (Galahad)

Deciding discretion was the better part of valor, Galahad snuck quietly back off into the woods to leave the bear to sleep in its bed of rosemary.

When the old woman mentions her son a saddened expression crosses the face of the little gnome. Silvi tries to get Elmora to sit down somewhere for a moment and then says a few words and before weaving her dream magic on the old woman. The dream that follows is one of renewal for Etran's Folly and the Hemsoth's farm, filled with inspirations for growing and wisdom long forgotten from family members long gone. "There is a pie, right?" she then asks Lavinia. "Maybe we can get it ready for her when she wakes up."

With the woman soundly asleep Silvi joins Hiromi and Pari. "I figure to give her about five minutes before waking her up. I do not want the dream to fade too quickly before she has a chance to ruminate on it." She walks up to the woman and puts a hand on her arm, looking her in the eyes. "Now I hope you get the full use of those swords and learn to become a great warrior. But are you in a hurry to fight? Your mother mentioned a brother who went to war... and didn't come back."

OOC: Cast sweet dream again, this time the dream of insight, which will give Elmora a +1 status bonus to intelligence checks, like say farming lore, for the remainder of the duration.

“Thank you all,”
Pari told the adventurers as her mother fell asleep. The young woman went inside to tuck the swords away in a hiding place before coming out again. “You should probably go before she wakes up again. Thank you again.”
