    Ishmael departs quickly...

    For a moment he looks back considering the possibility of trying to take on the Khan right now. Unfortunately the fact that he has so many with him, including one called bright eyes, deters him...

    Still he has mixed feelings from this meeting. Alot of new information... alot of mixed feelings and generally a sense of disatisfaction for what more he could have learned or done...

    He is also uncertain in the end if his having been lax with his walking about the city ended up as a good or bad thing...

    He shrugs as he walks away and smiles to himself. Well at least he would get to work with the people that would be hunting him... if nothing else that should give him a bit of an edge... furthermore the whole thing that he was walking around not hidden and with just a disguise meant he would be quite safe from being considered the ultra-careful spirit -eater... the fact that he had done the whole spiritual numbering thing as a fluke and to mislead them meant it was all the more easier to not be identified!

    He departs from the sewers and heads for the surface this time taking all appropriate precautions like going invisible and also being hidden in the darkest shadows around.

    Gah my hat! thank you!

    And thanks for the XP :D

    So let me do an ooc recap of where I am right now given my plots...

    a) Spirit Eater. Basically Edistris didnt give me specific guidance just told me to do it and things will take their 'natural' way on their own... so I believe thus far I have indeed fed it a bit but not horribly much judging by how careful I have been with feeding.

    b) Khan. Well we are now on an impasse given that I dont want to kill him until the spirit eater is resolved given that its his influence that will offer me an in with Willstaf. Unfortunately this means delaying both the resolving of the Ratlings thing and being able to go back to the Shadow Spider with good results... well I have made alot of progress though so I guess thats something...

    c) Generic Pelorites Questline. Well many info here that I cant puzzle out yet. Difficult to pull an appropriate string to loosen the whole puzzle right now given I have the demon inside me which limits the info I can get from friendly factions...

    d) Duchess mission. I know there is a lot of phisy goings on with the whole Pelor thing but I dont yet have alot of info on them. As such and to give time to facilitate the 'wilstaf - khan' meeting I will push on this part of my quests.




    Ishmael returns to the surface and the first thing he does is buy an improved and renewed disguise kit. Better not to have those issues again like with this bright eyes guy...

    He then proceed to get rid of the clothes he was wearing (via burning) but also to scrub himself finely and take a bath... the meeting with the Khan though beneficial showed he had been sloppy and he could not afford to do that again until he completed the mission for Edistris and got his mind blank effect on.

    Fresh clothes, fresh disguise and fresh body ready he stops at a decent tavern for nourishing food and drink and then he goes to the orphanage dressed as a well to do merchant.

    It costs you 5 silver to get the food and drink and approach the steps of the orphanage. As you approach, a man in a worn brown cloak approaches and says, "Can I help you, sir?"

    Was hoping for some positive reinforcement of my conclusions in the ooc above but very well ;p



    Ishmael looks at the man with some annoyance and speaks with a thickly accented voice.

    "I am sorry, I do not give to beggars my good man. I have important business with the orphanage!" he says and makes a show of heading towards the building.

    that would be... metagaming...

    that said, you've made no factual errors in your recollections, and I'm not commenting on your conclusions.

    Ishmael looks at him with faked suprise at the mention that he works here and looks critically at his clothes.

    "Well you see I myself represent a group of parties interested in the... how should I put it... well gentrification of this area... it seems to us that maybe we and the management of the orphanage could come to some agreement..." he says with a greedy smile.

    Ishmael tries not to show he is taken aback... he had hoped the man would protest and an arguement would be raised... his open-ness to such an idea throws him off balance for just a moment.

    "Well! I am glad to hear you are open minded!" he says and smiles.

    "Me and my associates would propose a business deal for the purchase of this building. I am sure that with the funds we would be able to offer you and the senior management of this place would be able to live long prosperous lives!"

    "Hmmm that is a problem indeed. Are you sure we cannot somehow make an arrangement between us?" he says with a wink.

    "How about if we also found a new location for the girls?"

    "A few hours eh?" he says curious if this time will be spent hiding something or rather preparing for an ambush and checking him out.

    "Very well... but you should know I am not asking to see the girls you have here... only the building itself. Would my donating 1000 gold for this mean that you could take the girls out for an expedition in the city and speed things up? Maybe part of this thousand could help grease the cogs of bureacracy..." he says hinting at a bribe.

    Spymaster's Coin

    Divination (Scrying)
    Level: Assassin 2, Bard 2, Sorcerer 2, Wizard 2,
    Components: V, S, AF,
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Touch
    Effect: Magical sensor
    Duration: 1 hour/level or until triggered, then 1 round/level
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No


    You slide your finger over a coin, imbuing it with a tiny fraction of your own senses.
    You imbue a Fine object (such as a coin, stone, or other innocuous item) with a dormant magical scrying sensor.
    Anyone attempting to detect its magical aura must succeed on a caster level check (DC 15 + your caster level).
    At any one time during the spell's duration, as a standard action you can concentrate upon the object, enabling you to hear or see (your choice) as if you were in the object's location.
    This effect otherwise functions as if you had cast clairaudience/clairvoyance in the object's area.
    You have no control over the object's movement and gain no special senses.
    Spymaster's coin functions only on the plane of existence you are currently occupying.
    You must continue to concentrate to see or hear through the spymaster's coin.
    If you stop concentrating, the spell's effect ends.
    Once activated, the scrying effect of the spell lasts for a maximum number of rounds equal to your caster level.
    Focus:One object of Fine size.

    The man gathers up the girls at the orphanage and sends them out with the adult caretakers to buy food and clothes. It does genuinely take about 30 minutes of effort to locate all the girls, another 15 minutes to get them all ready to go. After that, he calls for one of the caretakers to stay behind. "We need to move the goods to a secure location. We have someone trying to pass himself off as a wealthy investor claiming to want to renovate this place. Don't know what he's really after, but we can't afford to let him see the goods. Move them to the emergency cache while I stall him."

    The two head over to the food cellar and open the doors. You see some wooden stairs going down before your divination is suddenly cut off as it crosses the threshold.

    Ishmael uses the ring to turn invisible, then hides even more in the darkest shadows he can spot and moving softly as a cat and yet at normal speed due to his skulkiness he heads downstairs to where that entrance is.

    After checking if anyone is standing behind by looking through the key hole and not wasting precious time with locks this time Ishmael raises his other hand and used the lockpicking ring to cast knock on the door.

    He then enters as quietly as possible and tries to remain unseen.

    You enter without incident. The room you reach at the bottom of the cellar stairs is empty, although trails through the dust indicate that someone dragged a dozen boxes out the far door recently.
