SpoilerSpoilerApplying Chandler's Law
It doesn't take long till the door opens, a fully armored woman steps through the door. Her expression is hard to tell, since her face seems unnaturally covered with shadows but you can clearly see that she is not smiling, in fact her skin is terse and pale. When she passes by you you can see clearly that what at first appeared as metal or a ceramic decoration is in fact bone, her armor, or most of it, is made of old dragon bone.
She flashes through the waiting room leaving fast without looking back at all. Once she is left a man appears from the studio. This must be Maron Goldtooth, he walks like owns the place smoking a cigar with pleasure. He is a man still not feeling the weight of aging on his shoulders and looks at the room with a smirk. After looking at everyone he signals to the big barbarian and lets him into the studio.
As they get into the office the woman in robes approaches Nor and tries to start a conversation.
-Uhm... hello I am Aivlis. I was wondering if you had some parchment.
SpoilerA long nosed man steps through the door at Ripley's first knock. He is Assend Sharp, Goldtooth's assistant and guardian.
-What buisness do you have here?
As he is speaking an armored woman leaves the mannor. Her face is hidden under a cloak that seems covered in shadows but Ripley can clearly see that her armor is made of bone and her white locks of hair falling over it.
-Good day, Ms Longshadow. - The buttler says as the woman leaves but she doesn't pay him any attention, in fact after waiting for a couple of minutes another man, dressed in colorfoul clothes arrives and the start to talk while they leave.
Sharp looks back at Ripley waiting for an answer.
SpoilerEilis looks at Vlad raising an eyebrow in surprise. And then nods.
-Little man didn't know?
She looks almost sad. She hugs the Goliath and pats him on the shoulder, or at least as up as she can reach.
-Poor little man, little man's memory worse than Eilis thought. Little man should hurry.
SpoilerLuckily for Rosa there is a tavern nearby. The "Broken Tree" easily recognizable due to being completely built with stone and having not one but two doors. One of the doors is of normal human height but the other one is clearly built for either children or short people. Inside the tavern several men and dwarf drink loads of dwarf bear. Once inside a dwarf wartress approaches you carrying a couple of mugs and a huge smile.
-Beer or beer sweetie?
