"I'd take my advance, please," Aego says pleasantly, his eyes locking on Blossom's.

Then the elf starts eating, sticking mostly to the fruits and an occassional egg. He tries the orange juice, too, but is obviously not impressed with the liquid.

"I just discovered I don't like the taste of the color orange," Aego remarks with only the barest hint of sarcasm.

After breakfast, he moves outside with a swift pace, taking a big breathe of air.

"A good day for a quest!" he says as if knowledgeable about these things.

It is a fine spring day, the sun is shining and there is a scent of salt in the air from the sea breeze coming off the Sea of Five Winds. You hear, "Come back soon!" from a guard near the gate as you head out of the City State. You travel on a well maintained road for much of the day passing the occasional merchant caravan on its way to the City State. The caravans look to be well guarded and the fighters on horseback eye you warily as you pass. The rest of the day passes uneventfully and you see a small village just off the road ahead. The largest building in the village has a sign that says, The Lucky Battleaxe Inn. Off in the distance to the North you see a large winged shape high in the sky. You cannot tell if it is a large bird or a dragon. It looks like the sun will set within the hour.

Clalick enjoys breakfast quietly for the most part. It seems he is not much of a morning person.

"I also would like my advance. It might come in handy in the travels" He says politely to Blossom.

At the end of the days travel Clalick is pulled away from staring at the winged creature in the distance by Dorana's statement about a hot meal.
"A hot meal and a cold drink sound like a great remedy for the raw bottom this saddle has given me."

Aego greets everyone they encounter on the road enthusiastically, which may be why some of the caravan guards look suspicious. The elf either does not notice or does not care that his greetings mostly go unanswered.

When they get to the end of the day, Aego is quick to agree with the others. "Staying at that inn sounds very good. At the very least that flying thing up there won't think of us as its dinner if it can't see us inside."

As you get into the village you notice a long line of people waiting to enter another building. The line snakes around the block. The battered sign over the door says "Luby's Place" A small sign on the door says "Today's special - Steaks!" The pleasant aroma of meat cooked over an open fire fills the village. It seems that every villager is waiting in line for the Steaks at Luby's Place. There is no one entering the Lucky Battleaxe Inn and the common room looks empty as you peer in the front window. A lone Dwarf sits on the Bar cleaning glasses.

Aego eyes the long line of people with interest, his gaze lingering on attractive people of various races. He follows Dorana inside to the inn, however, without acting on whatever is going through his head.

As you enter the Lucky Battleaxe you notice that an elf near the front of the line to Luby's Place seems to be the same elf that was sitting at the bar at the Prancing Ki Rin Saloon when you met with Weleand.

Clalick scoffs at the line a bit. Not interested in waiting in it. He follows Dorana and Aego into the Lucky Battleaxe thinking to himself. Oh I hope the food isn't too bland.

Dorana speaks louder. "Perhaps you didn't hear me, I said, 'Business seems slow, good sir. Do you have rooms available?' "

She turns to the others and whispers. "And a moment ago the room was empty but now there's that elf. Have we seen him before?"

The Dwarf hops down from the bar and addresses Dorana, "Aye Lassie, I got rooms, food, and drink for my customers but until you came in, no customers. Damn that Luby and her "Steaks". Sucked in everyone in town and travelers too. If you ask me, there's something not quite right about those steaks she is serving. Cannot put my finger on it but somethin just does not smell right. You and your friends spending the night? Do you need food and drink? One gold piece each will cover it all. Name's Thafrat Axeforge but you can call me Frat. What's yours and your friends? Hope you can stay here tonight, I need the business."

"I'm Dorana, Frat. And I believe we will be staying the night. I'll take whatever you have for dinner and an ale at that table," she says sitting down at a nearby table.

"Must be magic," Aego whispers, half-seriously, in response to Frat's suspicions about Luby's steaks.

"My name is Aego Aenovindë, wizard and adventurer," the elf says with an exaggerated bow and wink. Under the assumption that everybody he meets seems to know the name of Weleand and is eager to help his associates with advice or free drinks, he adds, "We're on a mission from Weleand."

"Food and drink would be wonderful. As well as a room." Clalick says looking around the place.

"Nice enough place I suppose. Seems like a small town you must know Luby fairly well. Good cook?"

Bah! that girl can't boil water without burning it! Don't know how she does it. Weleand eh? He's the one who started it all. Brought in that meat from someplace he called Pluton. I wouldn't touch it but Luby bought the whole batch. Now look at her place, a line around the block, every night! You say you workin' for this Weleand?

"...Maybe," Aego starts, wondering if it was a mistake to mention their employer after all.

"What do you know of him? Trustworthy fellow?"
 

William Smith1

Villager
"Don't know about Trustworthy. Just a nuisance and a troublemaker if you ask me. Always flitting around the 'Multiverse' as he calls it. Bringing who knows what back with him. Like that meat Luby is serving. Where the hell is Pluton anyway? Never saw it on any map. But he is a wizard and you don't mess with them if you don't want to be turned into a toad or something worse, eh? I'd be careful if I were you. Don't trust a wizard. He paying you well?"
