The city of Eubric bustled with life as the heroes made their way down to the harbor. The crowds were a mash of the familiar everyday faces and the new travelers that had come to seek their fortune in the famed port. The scarecrow hurried along ahead of the heroes stopping at on one of the crowded docks.

OOC: Stats all good, thanks! :classic:

Purpearl reaches the docks, looks around and realises that she might have followed the scarecrow too closely. She looks at the scarecrow and smiles.

"Greetings, Purpearl Berthadhiell, Elven Mage, at your service."

"How shall I address you?"

"Oh great, another voyage." Dreyrugr held onto his gloves slightly tighter than earlier. This aquamarine better work.

"I'm Dreyrugr, and if anyone wants to borrow my hunter's plate you can on the condition you give me a portion of the gold you earn."

Baradock crossed his arms, spreading his legs. His face visibly miffed by something that happened earlier.

"Baradock." He announced, to no-one in particular. Ignoring the vampire's offer He strode towards Scrinshaw, his leg brushing against a mini-man he just realized was there.

"How many moons until we reach these, 'High Kin--Kingdoms? " He enquired, half questioning the scarecrow half questioning his pronunciation of kingdom. But the small sentence shed light on Baradock's thick accent, brimming with elongated vowels and a recursive flow.

OoC: Stats are A-OK Cap'n. :pir-grin: Except for the formatting error on Baradock's name. Also, you didn't put the name of the quest in the title.

"Nice to meet you, Scrinshaw."

"So I assume you work for Borris? Anything you would like us to know before setting off?"

Purpearl turns to Dreyrugr and Baradock.

"Hi there, I don't believe we've met before. I am Purpearl Berthadhiell."

"Hi there, I don't believe we've met before. I am Purpearl Berthadhiell."

Baradock shot the elf an odd look, for such a big set of ears she sure doesn't use them...

Remembering Benji's backwards speak he attempted to follow suit, "Cannari. Baradock Cannari." Though it was said bluntly, void of any hope to branch off into conversation.

He averted his gaze back to Scrinshaw, awaiting some kind of debriefing.

"If you're waiting for him to explain sit down and take a rest, I don't think he'll start until the rest of the group has caught up and found their breath."

Taking his own advice Dreyrugr sat down leaning against a wall.

The scarecrow blinked at Baradok, or at least the equivalent for a being with buttons for eyes.

11163459436_fd2a95dfa7_t.jpg

"Eh? Oh, the High Kingdoms. Um, should take but a week or so, depending if my fellow can secure you passage on one of the faster vessels."

The scarecrow looked over his shoulder at one of the other docks presumably looking for his fellow employee before turning back to Purpearl.

11163459436_fd2a95dfa7_t.jpg

"Ah, I wouldn't say I so much work for Borris. Erm, I'm his booking agent here on the Free Islands. Uh, not quite sure about the troupe's touring schedules in the High Kingdoms, but you should be meeting them in the small village of Nerstew, a bit north of Duplovia.

Cinna looks over the group gathered at the docks. She hadn't counted on being the party leader again and tried not to look nervous in front of these new recruits. Unsure if she is sad or relieved at not knowing any of her current teammates, she feels a bit of panic setting in deep in her belly but burries it where it can't hurt anyone. She checks her pack to make sure all her items are in order before approaching the group. Working up a smile, she greets them all.

"Hello, I don't beleive I've met any of you before. I'm Cinna."

Out of breath and fumbling his newly purchased bedroll, Matthias finally glimpses the rest of the party down at the docks. He runs to meet them.

"Hello again, everyone. Sorry I'm late."

"Hello, I don't believe I've met any of you before. I'm Cinna."

"I'm Matthias, from Eastgate in Drandora. Definitely pretty new to this questing thing." The tiny ranger looks around at his more experienced companions. "If anyone has some extra-small armor or other gear lying around I'd very much like to borrow it. I was a barber once," the gnome winces slightly and swallows, "and I could trade haircuts for a gear lease if anyone is interested."

"Oh, I had thought there were 6 of you. Hah, glad you could join us little fellow."

The scarecrow paused.

"Um, I think that only leaves the Yeti."

"Hello, I don't beleive I've met any of you before. I'm Cinna."

"Someone has bad memory." Dreyrugr muttered under his breath most likely to be missed by all.

"If anyone has some extra-small armor or other gear lying around I'd very much like to borrow it. I was a barber once," the gnome winces slightly and swallows, "and I could trade haircuts for a gear lease if anyone is interested."

"You can borrow my hunter's plate, but I don't want a haircut. I'll be happy with 1 gold for every 10 you make off this armour."

"Sounds great!"

"...I hate cutting hair anyway," Matthias muttered.

"Ah, here he is. You all finish up your swapping and I'll see how my man is coming along with your passage. He should have been back from the Magpie by now..."

The scarecrow departs for a moment to seek out his fellow businessman.

"Hello, I don't beleive I've met any of you before. I'm Cinna."

Baradock, not feeling the need to reiterate his name just does a hand gesture of acknowledgement.

"Hello again, everyone. Sorry I'm late."

-snip-

"and I could trade haircuts for a gear lease if anyone is interested."

He just noticed yet another mini-man come along, this one toted a crossbow two shoulders too big. Maybe this mini-man can grow hair. He thought, subconsciously rubbing his bare head. Seeing the scarecrow depart Baradock parked on the waist high wall. Whistling an intricate, foreign tune.

"Nagure the Yeti..."

The tiny gnome looks up at Nagure with awe and exclaims, in a very small voice, "You're humongous!"

Realizing he's just made it awkward, Matthias turns purple under the hood of his cloak and goes back to self-consciously trying to squish his bedroll down into a more manageable package.

The tiny gnome looks up at Nagure with awe and exclaims, in a very small voice, "You're humongous!"

The gnome's outburst reminded him of something, "Mini-Man." Baradock directed at the gnome, his accent broadening. "How are you to topple the enemies if all you can see is their kneecaps. It may end their adventuring days, yes?" He thrust his hand into his satchel, emerging with a Deadly Venom. "Uh--this make you more--" He shook the liquids around in the vial, buying time to find the word he was looking for... "Lethal?"

"Hello, Purpearl Berthadhiell, at your service." the elf nods in acknowledgement.

"...One of you mages can borrow this Scroll if you want."

Purpearl approaches Nagure and stands under the shadow of the yeti. Calm and in control, Purpearl clears her throat, and points to the scroll.

"You carry something. I do not deny my heart greatly desire this. If it accompanies me for the duration of this quest."

The gnome tilts his head back to look Baradock in the eye, unsure of the larger man's intent. "Thank you, but there's no way I can afford that." He shows a wry smile. "Perhaps I can buy it later, since I have no gold now."

"It is free, Mini-Man." He paused, "Like gift." He stirred the liquid once more. As if to confirm the mini-man did or didn't want it.

"May it serve you well, " Nagure says as he hands the Elf his Scroll of Weakening.
