    Default Trouble in Tashwell (IC)


    Hidden on the leeward side of mount Dolerur lies a the small village of Tashwell. This secluded society is renowned for it's excellent goat cheese and gin brewed from the seeds of the abundant juniper trees.

    In Leral, a larger town at the foot of the mountain you were offered the opportunity to deliver a stack of letters to Tebryn's Inn in Tashwell in exhance for a few pieces of gold when you got there. Since your route through the mountains would take you there no matter what you happily accepted and were offered a note of claim for ten pieces of gold to be presented to Tebryn in his inn.

    On the second day of your trip through the mountain passes you wake up by the pitter patter of soft rain against the rocks. The rain is mild and cool and not at all an unpleasant alternative to the blistering sun that's been tormenting you high from the sky. An hour's walk later you reach Tashwell, tucked in between to mountain spires, and with a palisade wall surrounding the rest it lies well protected from any sort of raiders you might expect in the mountain ranges.

    You decide to admire the village's structure for a few minutes before heading up to the main gate. There, a drowsy guard standing under a roof near the open gate greets you.

    "Ahoy travelers, state your business before you enter"

    "I am here, to seek knowledge." Norn replies. She pulls back her hooded travelling cloak unleashing a mane of titian hair. Her spell book held close to her chest and her arms crossed over it she steps closer to the guard.

    "I hear you have a somewhat wise cleric, and I wish to visit him."

    With no further suspicion the guardsman nods. "You mean Aldran and Nesra? They're the caretakers of the temple you see up there." He points through the open gate, towards a raised stone building in the far end of the village.

    Ritas meets the guard's gaze with a courteous nod. "A few days rest will suit this traveler well, if your hospitality is as I hear." His eyes return for a moment to the city laid about before him, then continues on. "Incidentally, I am looking for a man named Tebryn... do you know where I might find him?"

    Lilen approaches the guard, smiling what he hopes is his best smile and displaying more teeth than a person normally should. He gives a curt bow. He has a faint accent, the origin of which is difficult to determine.

    "Ah, I am sorry sir," he says, "But I too and just traveling through, to explore the area and such. Although in my travels I have heard some excellent things of this town's cooking. A recommendation to a good restaurant or inn would certainly be appreciated. And of course, it's been a long journey and I could use a place to rest my weary bones." He chuckles a bit awkwardly at this, but then stops and indicates his tired feet.

    "I know of two men by the name of Tebryn, but you're probaly looking for Tebryn the innkeep am I right? If you head down to the square and turn left you'll find the inn, you can't miss it"

    By the sight of Lilen's open cheek he frowns in a slightly disgusted grimace. "Now I see why you wanted to see the temple. What in the nine hells happened to you?"

    He listens to Dave's words without taking his eyes off Lilen's teeth-revealing hole. "What ever grabbed a hold of you? Did you come across an owlbear on your way up here? We haven't seen one for three years, but if they're back I'll have to alarm the citizens."

    Norn smiles at the guard before heading through the gate and into the town. She turns her head left and right, taking in the sights of the village on her way to the temple looking for anything unusual or out of place. Specificially she was hoping for a magician of some sort, someone with knowledge of how the divine impacted the world.

    Knowledge was something to acquire, and well worth the effort of seeking out and it was small places like this that held it in isolation from the rest of the world.

    Upon reaching the temple she pauses for a moment and tries to guess what deities would be worshipped locally.

    Lilen smilies politely. Pointing at his cheek, he says.

    "Oh, yes, this. I have had it for so long, I just tend to forget it's there most of the time. You see, in my village we have a tradition that when we are young we may choose to sacrifice a piece of ourselves, to symbolize our connection between this world and the next. It's basically a ritual that represents us coming into adulthood, and those who chose to do it are allowed to learn spellcraft."

    He perks up a bit at the name Tebryn.

    "Ah, yes, that reminds me though. I too must meet with this Tebryn."
    He ruffles through his rucksack, and produces a small parcel. "I had previously met with an acquaintance of his who had asked me to deliver some of his mail, since I was in the area." He begins to put the mail away and turns to speak to Norn.

    "Although I must admit, that temple does certainly sound interesting. Before heading to the inn, would it be alright Miss, if I were to join you?"

    "You... you did that yourself?" The guard seems lost of words. He lowers his head and shakes it. "Culture! And they say we mountainfolk have weird traditions... Very well, you may enter, enjoy your stay in Tashwell"

    He gestures for you to go inside as he scratches the back of his head in disbelief and confusion.

    Your knowledge reveals to you that the most revered gods in this area is Jascar, the suel deity of mountains and Fortubo, the dwarven deity of Stone. The small stone plaza in front of the temple building is indeed engraved with the holy symbol of Fortubo

    Norn enters the temple, her eyes lowered to the ground in a sign of respect, while her own relationship with the gods was distant at best she understood the value of behaving in the manner expected. Proper behaviour had of course been one of the most important lessons of her childhood.

    She looks around the temple, trying to get a feel of the place and looking for its caretakers.

    Lilen bows again to the guard and speaks, "Thank you for your hospitality."

    While walking towards the temple, he addresses Norn again.

    "It's always nice to meet fellow travelers. Where is it that you are from?"

    Upon reaching the temple, he racks his brain for the proper protocol of respect for this location, as well as any other potential information that may come up in a potential conversation with the priests.

    "I'm not from anywhere in particular." Norn replies. "I have been travelling since I first discovered just how big the world could be outside Valparine." she gives the stranger a smile

    "And you? I assume you aren't a local having been questioned at the gate too." she turns to look at the stranger only to find herself blushing at the attention he is showing.

    It is proper among dwarven religion such as Fortubo to address a priest as Shoro'dun (Holy One).

    Lilen nods at Norn, "It is similar with me. I am from a small island, faaar out at sea. It's been barely over a decade that we even knew of the mainland's existence. I'm really one of the first few to ever leave. But I've made it my own personal quest to travel about and discover as much of this land as I can, so that we can find our own place in the world."

    Upon entering the temple, he addresses the first cleric he sees.

    "Greetings Shoro'dun. My name is Lilen Zheng. I am a traveler from far off, and I would be very much be interested in learning of this land and it's customs. If there is someone I may speak to, I would be most grateful."

    He gestures towards Norn and continues.

    "My friend here, she is a traveler as well, and I believe she wishes to speak with a member of the priesthood as well."

    He addresses Norn again,

    "Oh, I really am sorry miss, speaking for you like that. That is what you are here for though, correct?" Realizing that he has been calling her "miss" the whole time, he smacks his forehead lightly. "Once again, I must apologize, I don't think I got your name."

    Ritas locates the inn based on the guard's directions without much trouble. Weary from his long travels, he orders a strong ale and inquires about the possibility of getting a room for a few days. Taking a long draught of the beer, he looks around the inn and politely makes conversation with the innkeeper.

    Norn and Lilen:
    A single row of solid stone benches cover the floor of the small temple building. Walkways lead around them to a podium where a woman sits, deeply concentrated in prayer. She holds her hands over a piece of document, and as she prays the words from her mouth conjures an ethereal mist that flows unto the paper where it shapes words and symbols. Deeply concentrated she doesn't notice your entrance at all.

    Your smalltalk conversation goes on for five minutes before her prayer ends, and with a sigh she opens her eyes to regard her work. She immediately notice you, but she doesn't scare from having strangers in her temple. "Hello there my guests, have I kept you waiting for long?"

    ------------------------------------
    Dave and Ritas:
    You make your way across the town square and take a turn to the left where a building with a lower half of stone, and the upper half of wood stands. A wooden sign hangs from a post near the door, saying "Tebryn's Inn". The solid oak door leads you inside to a largely empty taproom except for a single cloaked man sitting by his own table with a glass of wine and a half-finished platter of cheese and bread.

    The only other person to occupy the Inn is a slim man with a beard that makes his head look too big compared to the rest of his body, standing behind the bar. He grants Ritas' request for a beer with a demand of 5 coppers, or "'alf a silva" in return.

    "Rooms are a plenty, 'tis hardly yet the season for the merchants to pass over the mountains yet so all my rooms stand empty at least for the next coupl'a weeks. Say, you didn't come across an owlbear on your way up the mountain? The villagers are afraid Wode the brewer's son's been taken'a by one of 'em."

    Ritas sets his empty stein back on the bar, and wordlessly indicates he'd like another while sliding his payment in the direction of the innkeep.

    "Owlbears? No, I didn't see a one. Are they common in these parts?" The dwarf furrows his brow in recollection, trying to remember if he came across any sign of the creatures without it registering at the time. "Taken, you say? How long ago was this?"

    "Take a look inside, go ahead its perfectly safe. I look through old libraries and write down anything important and particularly any spells I come across." She smiles up at him from her seated position.

    Norn and Lilen:

    As the woman comes closer her features become clearer to you. The crow's feet at her eyes are the only feature that keeps you from mistaking her for a young maiden. "It wasn't as much of a ritual as it was routine work."
    She starts.

    "I was merely replacing one of the many purification scrolls we used up from our supply last year. Our winter shipment of wheat from Leral was tained. We had to draw additional magic from our scrolls to keep the entire village fed."

    She seems a bit surprised at your request of seeing a library. "We've never had researchers come all the way to Tashwell. We usually joke that the only people to know we're here are the merchants and the king's tax collecters." She pauses a moment before going on.

    "We certainly do have a small library here, and you're welcome to have a look at it though I have my doubts you'll find anything worth writing a book about."

    She beckons you to follow her to a door in the back of the temple. Beyond it is a room with a white, stone-tiled floor and heavy curtains hanging by the windows. Against the walls stands a few shelves, two of them filled with various books. Another serves as a scroll rack, filled with neatly stacked divine scrolls, finally a closed mahogany cupboard stands by the windows. A reading table with two chairs stands against a wall on it's own.

    "Feel welcome to look around. You won't be able to read a good lot of the books though. Unless you know the Dwarven alphabet. They are from my time as an acolyte"

If we allow them to breed'as they see fit there'd soon be one too many'and they'd spread to down here."

    As he talks he pours a glass of transparent liquid and places it in front of Dave, it has a faint aroma of pine needles and something else you can't quite place a finger on. What makes you sputter is not the strength of the taste, but rather it's uniqueness compared to the usual spirits you drink.

    Rather than laugh he seems to approve of Dave's initial reaction and responds with a hearty "Drink up lad, you'd hardly know what's good yet."

    His glance goes back to Ritas as he answers your other question. "He ought'a be home yesterday. He's one of the goatherders, but he and his flock never came back. Wode rounded up the lads and took them out at sunset. To my knowledge they're still out'a there looking for the lad."

    Ritas nods gravely as Tebryn tells of the missing boy, finishing his second drink with a long pull and wiping his beard dry with the back of his hand. He stares for a moment into the empty glass, as if weighing his options. Then he continues.

    "Truth be, I have a bit of experience as a tracker under my belt, and no where that needs me for a couple of days more. If they're looking for another pair of boots to search the slopes, I would be glad to it."

    "My island was only discovered relatively recently by the mainlanders. But it would be located roughly around here." He points to a portion of sea on the map where a series of clouds have been drawn.

    "There is an unusually high level of negative energy surrounding it, and that makes the seas hard to navigate. Some of the colonists have taken to calling it names such as 'The Isle of the Black Mists,' or 'The Island of Skulls.' But these names always come with such harsh intent. That is really why I am traveling the world. To find an identity for myself and my people."

    He turns to the priestess.

    "It is an honor to meet you, honorable Shoro'dun. If I may inquire further, what has caused your wheat to become tainted? Is this something that happens normally?"

    "I would love to find out more about your island at some stage for my notes." Norn grins at the idea of having such a valuable source of knowledge nearby, and one with relatively obscure knowledge at that.

    She notices her companions question about the wheat, it was a wise one that she wished she had thought of herself.

    "I appreciate your willingness to share your knowledge." she says to the priestess before turning back to what would appear to be her new companion. "Do you intend to stay in Tashwell for long?"
