yep

Just for frame of reference - this is super common.  Ctitizens of a given area or kingdom will typically pay lower taxes for things like this than will foreigners.  And the gate guard is not speaking out of turn - I am certain that Ch'dau has been utterly prevented entrance at some other towns. 

Do think about it.  We're not talking about modern culture, where the only difference is the color of a foreigner's skin (which can still cause barriers).  We're talking about what looks like a legit monster - in a world where monsters are all too real - walking up and wanting in your town or business.  Given the rarity of kazari in Antaron, it is doubtful that any citizen of this isolated town will have ever seen one.  Considering him a "beast" isn't just them being narrowminded; in most cases, creatures that walk on two legs but are not human, syl, khord, or cid are creatures that want to kill/eat the above species in this world.

Completely understood...

...but I had to try.

In all actuallity, Ch'dau is impressed by the little guard's bravery and, as such, has decided to pay the toll for all of them (also by way of thanks to his friends for their loyalty)... If i recall properly, one Royal is equal to 12 falchions, so the offered gold should cover the toll for all of us and leave the guard with an extra silver for himself, correct?

You are correct.  That pays for everyone and lets him pocket some coin. I can imagine that he will react favorably to that.

all right

Nice hashtag, activist. 

I'm going to assume from here that nobody will object to Ch'dau paying the road toll, and that you will all agree to the peace knots (which are a pretty common requirement inside of settlements).  If not, I can edit and we can play that out.  Otherwise, I'm goingto move things along this afternoon.

Please note...

... before you object to the kazari paying your toll (if you're so inclined) he is doing so for a number of reasons:

  1. He considers you all friends and is appreciative that, in the time you've all travelled with him, very few of you (if any) have ever exhibited the kind of prejudice he's become all too familiar with.
  2. Slipping the guard a Royal allows the guard to pocket a bit of coin for himself and his family and, hopefully, will grease the wheels where, at least, this guard is concerned and, perhaps, lead to a friendlier/more open reception should we pass this way again.
  3. Ch'dau's not rich by any means but, I've been led to believe that he currently has more coin on him than a good deal of the rest due to his mercenary days, so he's more than happy to pay the toll in order to allow his friends to keep what coin they have for other things.

Gib has no objection to Ch'dau's generosity. We are a company of friends and it will all even out in the end.

Direction of travel

The lady at the Inn is asking us about the road to the East of Crandel, assuming we came from that direction. However, at the beginning, it said we were on the road to the southwest of Crandel. Did we come in from the East or West?

nope

Sorry if it was confusing.  You started in the woods near the village of Crandel - southwest of Daviena castle, near the Sendrian border.  Not southwest of Crandel.

You have been traveling west, towards the Sendrian border.  These woman and her companion have apparently been heading east, further into Ertain - same as the pilgrims.

Awesome, Blackthorn! You're getting really good at this.

I'll try and post soon. Dealing with some personal/family stuff today so no guarantees.

Agreed.  Blackthorn, you have really stepped it up, and I find myself looking forward to your posts like I do some of the veterans!

I wholeheartedly agree. 

I don't know about the lot of you but it would be really helpful for me to have a list of all of the characters and a brief description of them.
