Taden picks his self up and throws himself down into a chair in the corner he looks at the medal and takes it off. Drops it in his pocket. He then picked up the small sack examined the gems and dropped them in his spell component pouch. He thought to himself Look at this everyone so ... happy why can t I be the same He wonders if anything was out of the ordinary. (Spot 16+5=21)

Grush sat inside the pub, his cold face sat upon his looks but inside he was the happiest he remembered being in a long time he also knew Gorvi was alright now he knew that without Gorvi Grush could have been killed without his mask his green skin would've ended up with him being slaughtered in the massacre if not by the townsfolk then by the goblins.
Grush fondles the knew champion statue in his hands gazing at the beuty of it, he would buy a belt for it to tuck into and if he was reneowned at some stage enought o enter a city or large town then he would get it carved to replace the sword and shield to a double axe, a more suitable weapon in his handsthan a shield. Grush strongarm does not need a shield.
he pondere on mentioning to the others an adventure he supposed over to choppers isle to explore the bad 'voodoo' he decided not to mention it atthe moment but if someone else asked his hand would be the first one up. but that was for othertimes for now he will party and down many mugs of mead tonight and if in the morning he is groggy he will go for a swim he had always wanted to do this but never thought of being allowed.
From the first day that Gorvi probably his nearest thing to family he had known had taken him to this seaside town he had been living in fear of the townsfolk and also the frequent goblin attacks but know he was loved not only by the townsfolk but also by the smaaler ones even they barraged him with flowers and gifts and he knew Gorvi's heart swelled with pride every time that he looked on him.
As our heroes enter the inn the entire place grows quiet. Every eye turns to watch them as they enter in. After a moments quiet .. a shout comes out from somewhere in the back
Three cheers for the heroes of Sandpoint! Huzzah! Huzzah! HUZZAH!!
The crowd echoes their cheers and the entire Rusty Dragon is alive with excitement. A table is immediately cleared for the heroes and drinks brought out immediately. A rough looking barwench places teh glasses down on the table and barks On tha house
It isn't long before Aldern Foxglove shows up at the table. Seems you're more famous by the hour He motions to the group and asks if he can join the group. He moves to a en empty chair next to Selaro and sits down before anyone can give much of a response. I have an inviatation for you. Before I return to my townhouse in Magnimar in a few more days I was hoping to go on a boar hunt in nearby Tickwood. I would like nothing more than you have you all join me on this adventure. It would give us time to get to know each other some more. If it wasn't for you I would have surely been "goblined" to death and I must find a way to repay you properly. A boar hunt is a nobleman's tradition and of course I will cover all of the expenses. What do you say? He places one arm on the chair behind Selaro and waits for a response from everyone at the table.

The wizard simply looked at them and said nothing he was indead jealous but his wise view on the situation allowed him to brush it off. He wawaiting for Selaros response in particular but if any of the others went it would be enough of a reason

Selaro turns towards Aldern Foxglove and responds with the simple statement "I do not support the unnecessary killing or harming of any innocent creature that walks, flies or swims on this planet and I believe that hunting for pure sport is a barbaric practice so I must decline."
She turns towards the others and says "However I do want to venture out of the Sandpoint, I have been meaning to for some time and think of now body I would rather be accompanied by than you. I know that for many of you you have just arrived here and that we are being hailed as heroes here but I would rather be a stranger in a new land then a hero in an old one. So what do you say and Myra could you please donate this to the cathedral for me as I don't want to be known as a hero and a benefactor of the town."
and she hands a ruby from her bag to Myra. "I have some business to attend to so would you please excuse me, I will be back in a Minuit or two."
And Selaro stands up and leaves. She heads towards Maver Kesk place to officially get how much the gems are worth with the intention of going to the Red Dog Smithy, in search of Das Korvat, so she can buy a new scimitar, the masterwork serrated one, that they had been working on.
(Will barter on Dragon Chat if necessary)

Athough Grush was normally a quiet character he bounced as soon as hunting boar was mentioned and nobility his heart swelled at the oppurtunity of doing something that was for nobles Grush tried to think of something brilliantly witty and intelligent to say to the noble but it came out as "me, me i will come on the boar hunt."
He knew from then he had embarassed himself so sat back down his face beetroot red he felt as though the whole inn was looking at him this made him angry but from experience he withheld this anger and he would do so until he got home then he would take his anger out he ddn't know what on but something, something.
Taden wasnt in shock or awe by what she said as a matter of fact he expected it she had previously gotten mad at Welbry for the killing of goblins Taden got up from the table thanked the citizens and walked over to Welbry. We must go now
well ... Aldern Foxglove sighed it seems we have a split decision. For those of you who are interested please meet me outside the inn tomorrow morning and I will take you on a hunt you will never forget. For the rest of you, I do hope that you will visit my home in Magnimar the next time you pass that way.
Foxglove throws a small bag on the table . Here is a little reward for your efforts as well. For saving my life. It's not much but I will reward you properly if you pay me a visit sometime Aldern excuses himself from the table and climbs the stairs at the inn apparently heading to his room.
*NOTE* For those of you going on the boarhunt, you will write your next post for this evening up to the morning when you arrive to go. For those of you NOT going on the hunt, you will have 2 days here in town. You should post what you might want to do over those next 2 days in your next post(s)
I was not surprised that I was asked as I think of myself as a good bow man and helpful on a hunt. "Yes i will come on the hunt with you Aldern and any one else that is coming. I agree with Selaro that killing for fun is wrong and if you kill and live the dead animal on the ground."
After Selaro's trip to the Jeweler and Das Korvat, and a little detour to collect some money (50gp) and drop off her remaining ruby, she returned to the Rusty Dragon to find a small bag on the table and Taden missing. Upon sitting down after getting a drink of Ale (4cp) she addressed Myra and asked "Where has Tanden and our host missing, I hope I did not annoy him so that he has left us to buy our own drinks."
she says jokily, reaches out to examine the bag and its contents, and continued "I shall buy us all drinks. So is it wine all around?"
And with that she stands up, goes to the bar and buys a bottle of wine and a gallon of ale (10gp, 2sp) then brings them back to the table and explains that the ale is for good measure.
PS What is left over from my buy, I don't sell the Emerald I just give it to him so I'm just asking what I get left over from selling my scimitar to him.
I also bring mugs and glasses.

In another part of Sandpoint
Ariellyn walk as quietly towards the Rusty Dragon by a quieter side street. Her "medal of heroism" now in her pouch. THe last few parents with their children now safely back to them having thanked her for standing in to defend the school house. IT was a close thing though and not a situation she had wanted to face again very soon. She had used up nearly all her arrows when the last goblin attacking what serve as the school house in Sandpoint was free of the attacking horde of goblins.
Ariellyn thought back to just this morning as she had enter the town of Sandpoint on the vernal, the first day of fall. As typical of most agraian societies that measured the passing of seasons with festivals. Sandpoint was rigged out in finery for the "sweallowtail Festival" SHe had thought that she would take in the festival and rest this day before she would try to find a new group to travel with. There was some possibility that other adventurers would be drawn here for the same reason. She could only hope.
Absently Aielwyn rubbed her recently fracture arm. It ached just a bit from the contant strain from shooting her new bow. It was much stronger than her previous one. and that had really helped her down the goblins. It had taken her some time to gather all her srrows. THey fact that they were made of darkwood helped her find them faster and reduced her loss from breakage. She as smoothed their feathers and replaced them in her quiver. SHe also looted the bodies for any valuables. Where the goblins were going they would need nothing. At least that put a bit of coinage in her poscket for now.
Ariellyn moved steadily towards the Rusty Dragon. She had been invited too but wasn't sure she wanted to, but why not. She would partake of free food and drink for what she had done and it would help her coins go further in the days ahead.
The Rusty Dragon
Things were already in full swing as Ariellyn quietly entered the tavern. rather tall for an elven woman., with silver hair and bright sea green eyes like the color of a tropical ocean wave with the light shining through it dressed in simple traveling outfit of dark forest green pants and a dark forest greenn jerkinn, over a sea green tunice. Ariellyn cloak was dark grey lined in a patterned green lineing. One group was being hailed as heroes as she moved up to the barkeep and ordered food and drink quitely. She tool out her medal only long enough to show the barkeeps and order her food and drink, then went to a corner table and took in the sights and sounds. her silver hair was braided back into a long single braid and a decorative headband keep any stray hairs out of her face.
The local lord was there thnking the one oddly assorted group for saving his life. USually nobles were very thankful when their lives were dave as thankful and anyone whose lived were saved only they had the money to reward those who saved their lives. Not that she was bathered by it., Ther parents had been genuinely thankful for their children lives.
"Would your offer of going hunting include all that were lauded as heros this day?" comes the voice of the elven woman in the corner just after the other accepted of declined the young lords offer. "If the meat is used and distributed to those in need, under those conditions I would join you," she finishes
Halfway through a sip of wine and completely discordant with the rest of whatever conversation was going on Selaro announced to the group "Maybe I was too dismissive of going on a hunt. I mean I don't have a bow or crossbow but if the meat was properly used and none was waisted then it wouldn't be an unnecessary kill. Yes I will join you tomorrow on the hunt if only for company."
And then she continued with whatever the current conversation was and sipping the wine in her glass thinking that it might be fun go riding in the woods with some new companions.
After a wile she decided to go and great the female elf in the corner.

Once grush accepted the nobles kind offer he saw the mead and wine being put on the table he knew his body didn't react well with alchohol so decided to take his leave. he wished the adventurers a good night and wlked is way home still fondling the trophy of a champion he had won he was glad that Gorvi was ok but hoped he would be out celebrating as he did not want an alchohol fest with him as he was in a strange mood happy but also angry with himself.
As Grush stumbled into bed he realised how much he had missed Kendra and also Jelme his hatchling son. Why had he done it he thought to himself he was lucky of gorvis teachings of how to control the strong stuff as Gorvi had said. That one night when he was angry with temuke his chieftains brother he had bloodied his fist with temuke so much it had killed the orc once he was found he was sent away and his family was murdered in front of him as he thought of this he wept and kept weeping until his eyes were dry this is when he slept.
Myra had watched the conversation go on .. When Selaro had gotten up she noticed that the noble seemed saddened by this and in an apparent inner emotional outburst had excused himself from the table and headed back to his room.
Myra, herself, was enjoying her drink and the company of her new friends. The wizard got up suddenly and walked off without much warning leaving Myra with Grush and looking around the bar. She heard another call over to the noble but the noble was too put off to pay her any mind. Myra motioned over to the newcomer, who also had a medal around her neck. Please join us. It seems some of our others have left but there is plenty ale and fine wine to go around
Selaro returned after some time and sat back down at the table. She asked where the others had gone and Myra shrugged. Master Foxglove has returned to his room. but the hunt is on for the morning I am sure that all who arrive will be welcomed on it She smiled at Selaro. There is plenty of ale and wine left. It really shouldn't go to waste. and this pouch .. the noble left it .. I looked inside (I wonder what I saw)
