well, Lothor is inclined to prefer the city, but I think a few others wanted the castle. Before I post that he falls in with the others I'd want to be sure the others want to follow our dwarf. Also, I believe the big warrior is likely to guard the rear. He isn't as talented or magical at hiding as some others and would be inclined to allow the others to keep an eye on things close to the big guys. But guarding the rear is something he has quite a bit of experience with.
Three further thoughts that don't require answers:
1. The castle seems more important now.
2. I wonder what is under the tarp of the other 2 wagons.
3. This city gets destroyed soon. We don't want to get caught up in that. Also, is it possible we precipitate it?
Nobody posted actually doing anything so I figured Cor would start walking to give us some direction. The city I think holds nothing but trouble for us. Why the castle would be important is not clear as it is not part of what we need to do. Our job is to find a way to the island so that is what Cor is focused on right now.
Sorry, it seems like I didn't post last week. Somehow I must have thought my post here on the Q&A section was on the thread. Since all he did was follow along it doesn't make much difference, but I still don't like missing.
Questions for our GM.
I assume we can see the docks from our position - what can we see - are there any boats visible? If so, of what sorts? Is there anything we might be able to handle ourselves?
Also, are thee any docks outside of the city? Can we see anything along the coast?
I assume we can see the docks from our position - what can we see - are there any boats visible?No the town docks are out of sight on the North-East part of the town Also, are thee any docks outside of the city?The only non-city docks is the one to the North of the castle Can we see anything along the coast?Nothing from where you are at present.

i'd put my vote in to look to the castle. i doubt that we'd be able to get to the docks through the city with the amount of patrols an lesser minions(goblins/kabolds) that would scent us out simply because were different.
if we could get to the north side of the castle it might be safer then trying to scurry through the city.
I'm willing to scout out the castle. I don't know exactly what we have to fear from the city, but a healthy dose of caution seems wise. But it doesn't look like a place where strangers are unusual. The lack of elves is weird though. And perhaps problematic.
Yes, we could be tracked as strangers (as opposed to strange types) but if this is really a city, it seems highly unlikely that they would know all of the locals. And as a pirate port people would come and go all of the time.
But the "problematic" comment was meant about the elves (and Halfling) -- they would seem to stand out.
One thing you didn't include was how the population of the city was acting. Did there appear to be tension between the races. Like the Orcs acting brutish to humans and such. Or did all seem to treat each as equals showing no signs of distrust?
With the evil armies pushing North they may have had no need to go South to these islands. It may have been able to keep a fragile balance.
Where as many of the Half breeds are from raped prisons and slaves perhaps here they coexist such that normal pairing may delevop.
So being able to judge how the population was acting is important.

You did notice whatever tension was there, it disappeared instantly once a patrol came around.
