Before he leaves the gaurd

"If he is still alive, and he hasn't divuldged the info yet, see if has info on the total amount of troops that had/were gathered together. And that drink does sound like a good idea before we head out."

He returns to the inn after visiting the detention center where the goblin had been held. He searches out his friends and sits with them only to share what he has found out. The goblin knew nothing and so they continue on not knowing which direction really to head in nor what more lays in wait ahead on the road.

Lorae and Game Post


Lorae is outside with Moondancer, she smiles as Logan approaches and then enters the inn with him and joins the others.

They are there except Vatta at this moment. The serving wench comes around for orders and then moves off to get the drinks ordered.

"What we need in information, A place to go where we can do research on the sword we seek."

"Does anyone know of such a place, a house of knowledge and history, or a council of sages?"

She looks to the native of this world hopihg they would have an answer for her.

"Is there a big city, a captial where we can find the information we seek?"

The Next Step.

As Xour and Brianna are sitting with the stranger asking a few questions of him the rest of their party save one come back into the Inn and take a table where they get into conversation about what the next move should be, where should they go to seek the information they require in the quest for this sword.

Having tried to listen to what was being said at both tables Xour has picked up most of what the party wants to do so he frames his next question to the man he is speaking with to try and get this information from him. Well sir I gather from the way you said you settled here that you may have done some traveling in your time, if so maybe you might be able to direct my friends and myself. We are seeking a place where there may be an accumulation of old and new information. Maybe a larger city which may have a library or a place of learning where one might be able to interact with sages or the ones who teach. Maybe you know of a place where one may get answers to questions such as an oracle or a council of great sages. Any information you could provide to us would be greatly appreciated.
Xour takes a long draw on his drink after asking his question and leans back in his chair.

Game Post

"Best way to go I can think of that you can go is to Suzail, the capitol of Cormyr. Best way to get there is go west to Tilverton and then south to Suzail. You will have to travel over the Storm Horns that is tough going but , but the Purple Dragons maintain patrols from Tilverton down. Any other way would necessitate crossing some parts of the Cormanthor that right now that is not a good places to travel."

Jadar paused to take a drink from his mug.

"It's about a 120 miles from here to Tilverton, that again from Tilverton to Suzail. Some of the distance is doubled in the Storm Horns where the road has a lot of switchbacks, as the crow lies it would be shorted to Suzail."

"Wagon wise that would mean about 30 miles a day if you push it, 15-20 miles as day in the foot hills and maybe half that in the steepest parts of the road. But on horses it should not be that slow. miles a day and that would mean 4-6 days to Tilverton and the same or more to Suzail, barring any problems. And you'd have to take all you supplies, The are no places from Mistledale to Tilverton to stop at and are birtually nothing until you cross the Storm Horns either. Though you might find a merchant on the road, you can't be sure that what he is carrying can helo you out."

"Hope that helps you out a bit."

Brianna

"Thank you for that information, it is as good a destination as any for our search." Brianna pipes up. "Let us gather supplies for three weeks to a month of travel and be on our way."

Horses are all ready saddled and waiting. we can stop at the farmers market for any food stuffs we need and get going."

Brianna was ready to leave and wanted to get on the road. Earlier today she had gone to the new;y built shrine of the Great Mother Amaterrana. The dwarven female cleric was there and accepted her tithe of gold for the church.

"If your are all ready I say lets get what we need and go."
she says and she stands up and begins to walk out the inn door.

While they were supposed to meet with someone later Brianna was not one for ceremonies and such. IT was time to move on to the next battle for good. Put her on the back of a horse with her weapons ready and an foe in sight and she was happy.

She would Miss Highnar. His attitude and aptitude for battle matched with hers They made a good fighting team.

Going or not! .. that is the question?

"Thank you for that information, it is as good a destination as any for our search." Brianna pipes up. "Let us gather supplies for three weeks to a month of travel and be on our way."
Vatta heard Brianna’s words as the others in the party stood up from their table across the room. She raised an eyebrow at what she heard and wondered about where they were bound. Apparently they were continuing on with some quest, but Vatta had not been party to the conversation, not from where she sat at the bar nursing her second drink of the evening.

She wondered since she wasn’t included in the discussion about their future plans, then maybe she was expected to go with them. In her current mood she shrugged and turned back to the bar. If they needed a thief/killer then someone would approach her and seek her help, if they didn’t then she was ok with that too. She could always find work, and since her encounter with the Priest earlier she had been a bit forlorned.

Lorae



Lorae stands and looks about for Vatta and Caerric. Off to the side at a table by herself she spots Vatta.

The Paladin to the Light moves over to her in her silent graceful way. "We will be leaving soon, we are heading to Suzail in Cormyr. Your knowledge of cities is going to be very valuable to us."

She smiles down to the young woman as if she is feeling the alienation that Vatta was nursing in her mug of brew. "You have been a true and faitful comrade."

It was said simply, and Vatta could feel she meant it.

Brianna

Brianna strides over to where Lorae talks with Vatta. She liked the woman who was mostly quiet but certainly not a cypher in the snow. Something she was not. However Brianna had promised herself to live life to the fullest and she was what she was an Amazon warrioress. Her heart and spirit, her pride in her clan her pride in her peo....... Her mind stopped going that direction. She had very mixed feelings about her people right now.

Brianna's whole family had been killed by what at first seemed to be raiders but what she found out later were they were the Queen's own troops, and the destruction of her clan was their goal by the Queen's orders. She had escaped her families demise because that she had been out in the distant fields herding horse with other young Amazons She looked no different than the others dressed in leather riding pants and brief leather top with a simple short cloak for warmth.

Brianna's one bit pf good fortune was that she did not look like her mother and sisters who were blond haired of various shades with blue, green or gray eyes. Her father had been different from her sisters' sire . Brianna's hair was flaming red and her eye a strange golden color.

Brianna did not escape totally caputure and all her people were rounded up. Those that were captured her were made to watch the execution of her family and were told that he mother was a traitor to the Queen and her life and the lives of all her family were forfit. Not only her family but all blond blue eyes girls and a certain age. Most of her clan were red heads.

Brianna had never been to court. nor been allowed to be present when any visitors had arrived. Her mother kept her life apart from outsiders. Brianna never knew why while her mother was alive but later she understood the reason when she met her father. But that was another story one that directly the cause of why she was here in the place totally unknown to her.

After her capture she and others were sold a slaves and sent to the Forbidden Isles. A place that was the dumping ground for all the criminals from the main continent. Once there one could never return. But she had. It had taken her three long years. after fighting and clawing her way to the top and angry young woman now with revenge on her mind and an army behind her. The strangest army ever gathered. She was going back to the Amazon lands and would exact retribution from those who had destroyed her family up to and including the Queen herself.

Only the army never got there and that too was another story and brief chapter in her life, that was bittersweet.

"Vatta, Are you coming with us. Your a fine shot with that bow of your and we could use that fighting edge you can give us."

"Lorae did you tell her where we are going? If not I will."

Brianna couldn't help how she saw people. They were like pieces of a puzzle she was trying to put together. It just came to her how various skills could be blended together to make a better fighting force. Like a general, she had a knack for seeing the people as pieces of the puzzle to build them into an effective force.

"what do you say?"

Going....

Vatta looked up at the two warrior women who walked up and asked her to accompany them on their journey. She dropped her head for a moment considering, then looked back up at them.

“I don’t know how much help I can be,” Vatta said softly but she shrugged and got up from her chair as she continued, “but you seem to be going in my direction so I will accompany you to Suzail.” As she finished a sly little smile graced her lips, it was as if what she said was a little joke, or was it.

She grabbed her bow from where it lay against the table and slung it on her back and turned towards the door.

“My other things are already packed on my horse,” she said, “We can pick up our supplies and then head off as soon as possible.”

(She will go with the group to the market and pick up the required water and foodstuffs to get them to Suzail and a bit extra. She will also try to find a place to get some more arrows as the battle diminished her supply. If possible she will get at least 40 arrows, 20 for her person and 20 more for the quiver on her mount.)

Game Post


Cerric is waiting outside when they the other exit the inn, He politely nods and greets the others including Vatta.(Do not know what has happened to Cerric. I will be looking for a player for him, for now he is an NPC.)

A quick raid on the village market gets them most of the supplies they need. Arrows are in short supply and the best Vatta can do is 23 arrows, 10 broard tips and 8 armor piercing, and a couple of different types of hunting arrors for birds.

It is a beautiful late summer day when the group leaves Asbenford with determined riding they reach the road to Peldan's Helm, a small village north of the road, where Lorae and Brianna have stayed before.

Lorae


Lorae draws rein at the side road going north into the foothills with a weathered sign post with Paldan's Helm carved into the surface. Some of the letters still have some paint in them.

"We could stop at the village for tonight, they have a small tavern where we could bed down for the night. It is about 8 miles up the road. It could be that we can find more arrows there, as their main occupation is hunting."

Vatta

Vatta buys what arrows she can at the market before hitting the road. She is disappointed in not being able to completely stock up since she has been using a lot of arrows lately but she understands why the town is so short.

She rides more towards the rear of the group as they leave Asbenford, she constantly checks the area behind them and to the flanks using her keen vision to watch for trouble.

"We could stop at the village for tonight, they have a small tavern where we could bed down for the night. It is about 8 miles up the road. It could be that we can find more arrows there, as their main occupation is hunting."

“That sounds good,” she mumbles slightly, thinking she can use another good nights rest in a real bed since they don’t know when they might get the chance again. Besides she still wants to buy about another 20 arrows for her saddle quiver. Vatta is far from dumb and realizes that her strength is in attacking from a distance or even from concealment. She lets the fighters in the group do what they do best, act as meat shields to keep their opponents at a distance where she can wreck havoc upon them with her deadly accuracy.

She follows the others on to Paldan’s Helm hoping for a good meal, some good wine and a good nights rest.

Brianna

Brianna rides to the front. Not that she is a scout but she is one of the strongest and best protected and she has a few scouting skills that she had learned early as a hear guardian.

Long hours riding were easy for her. Amazon were the horse tribe people. She had nearly been born in the saddle so to speak. However, as a horsewoman, she also knew it was necessary to spell her horse. Brianna dismounted and walks with long stride with the other as they walked their horses or even trotted along with them as well.

They met few people on this stretch of the road. locals traveling from one place to another. Brianna had a nod and a smile for those who took notice of them. She sometimes swept off the trails in search of game. not knowing if they had to prepare their own dinner tonight. Trail rations were fine when necessary but fresh food taken by her own hands was better Unfortunately The black stallion tended to bull rush through the woods and most game had fled by the time she could get to where they had been She preferred fresh food. etter.

Halfway through the day she vaulted up on her red mare bareback and rode off to hunt. Brianna like the mare better for hunting she just seemed to know what Brianna wanted and could move quietly through the forest.

Thus it was that Brianna was able to take two fat hares and a plumb large bodied bird of a type she did not know. That should provide enought meat for the pot tonight.

Brianna rode back well satisfied with her hunt.

"Meat for our pot tonight," she called out as she returned to the group she gutted and skinned them all and wrapped them in a sack.

The organs she fed to Flame as a treat.

A new Journy

Having purchased 2 dozen razor sharp hunting arrows one for birds and one for large game eailer that same day he let anyone who needed arrows buy any that where left, as the group made their preparations to move out towards the city of Suzail.

Xour being a ranger rides at the front of the group keeping a sharp eye out for any thing that looks out of the ordinary. Brianna rides out front with him often and he will help her out in her hunting efforts by pointing out any game trails he might notice as they make their way.

She does come up with some fresh meat and that should help keep them fresh with good food. Other than that Xour keeps so far pretty much to himself and does his job out front, waiting for them to decide it was time to find a camp for the night or to decide to stay in the small village for the night.

Brianna

Brianna is enjoying this trip, Xuor is an interesting companion, very knowledgeable about the forest animals and quick to spot trails as they pass by them.

After coming back from on foray in the woods that netter her nothing that time.

"Your are well skilled as a hunter and tracker. Would you teach me some of those skills. I must admit that my kills are mostly come from a clear opportunity I can take advantage of. I cannot track very well and would like to learn how to do better." Brianna shares with him.
