The small group makes their way to the HQ quickly, making their way through the bustling city with ease. Arthur guides them around the corner of the building to a side door - Lilith's office. Sure enough, Lilith Etenant herself is standing there, rapping her plam lightly with her rapier.

The lietunant nods at the heroes curtly, examining them closely. Much to her relief, three out of the five heroes had been deemed "worth something" by her Captain... she wouldn't say it outright quite yet, but she was fairly confident in this crew.

6Xogedy.png

"Ah, you've arrived. I'm hoping that we may be able to give the Wolfgang another lasting wound, especially after we defeated all three of their generals. Just my luck that I was stuck patrolling the outer perimeter... I do wish I could've been more involved in all of that, but such is fate.

Now, then - time to get down to business. Are all of you here?"

Are your inventories correct? I will edit in any purchases you make. :sweet:

You have 24 hours to confirm... let's get this show on the road. :devil:

OOC: I should be down 200 gold. Everything else is good.

Karie makes her way to the Town Watch building, an impressive edifice to say the least.

"Good evening Lieutenant, the name's Karie, Karie Alderflask. I guess I'm present, so yeah. I heard it was quite party down at the theatre last night!"

She wasn't used to the formality of the Town Watch. At least they were meeting their employer face to face, and not the employer's assistant.

"'Party' isn't how I'd describe it. Fortunately, the Wolfgang were on the reiciving end of the pain, for the most part..."

Lilith notes Karie's catsuit.

"I was unaware you were there, judging by the get-up."

Karie looks at the catsuit she has in the small bag she picked up on the way to the headquarters. The ears were peaking out of the bag.

"I was unaware of whom the previous owner was. Now that I think about it I did get it off some undead guy."

She takes it out and looks it over. She hadn't noticed the slight odor coming off it. That guy better of not been some weird cross dresser.

She notices Arnulf in group. The last time she saw him she exploded in rage. Then she was drunk and supposedly dancing on the table. She walks over to Arnulf and hugs him.

"Long time, no see, Arnie! What have you been up to?"

Lilith raises a surprised eyebrow.

"You don't know? You have the suit of the late Violetta the Cat Burglar, who has killed last night at the theatre. Yes, the revenant was among them, along with Private Regulus and a yeti."

"Well, I can see where she got her name."

Karie felt a little unnerved owning some dead woman's clothes, especially after the way she greedily grabbed them for a steal of a price. Karie looked over at "Private" Regulus.

Karie turns to Lilith, the cat suit still in her arms.

"You got someplace I could change? I wouldn't mind trying this thing on."

"Thank you."

After making her way inside, Karie takes of her leather armour and her regular clothes in exchange for the Cat Suit. She checks herself over to ensure she still looks the same physically, then leaves the room, getting a few offbeat looks from the few loitering guards. She returns outside, the cat eared hood down and her mask still on.

"It's a little tight... that and it smells a little..."

"Liutenant, can you tell me more about the armory and the men you have lost " Arnulf said.

6Xogedy.png

"I'll wait til' everyone arrives for the full briefing, but the armory is situated in one of the scummiest alleys in Eubric. It lacks an official name, but we at the watch have nicknamed it the Sceleris Alleys. The armory was only discovered, and most likely established, recently... a good portion of the men we have sent to patrol that area have vanished. Snuffed by the Wolfgang, knowing our luck. We stopped sending them so often because of the crime rate, and thus the Wolfgang pretty much run rampant there.

Recently, one of our patrolmen managed to get out of there with his life and carried with him one rumor: the establishment of an armory."
