    What time is it??. Well at least this should give me some time to figure out what I have to do today. Mana said we were running a shipping route from Oda to Hara I must have a log book or something of shipments coming in

    John gets up and begins looking for a record of shipments coming in.

    You find no such logs. You find records indicating that the shipping company was in the plans. Including long lists of what is in demand and supply in all the areas of the country, not just Oda and Hara. There is strong evidence the company had long-term plans for total expansion around the kingdom. It appears that the main thing missing is a warehouse in Hara price listed at...50000 gp!!

    The guild is mostly empty. The few people left at doing paperwork or maintaining the store. Mana is nowhere to be scene, but asking around reveals she went to the wizard's school to buy scrolls.

    Mana eventually returns, and sits outside of the guild talking to another girl they seem to be in serious discussion and are both clearly emotional.

    OOC: okay... so we should meet princess this afternoon, but will be informed about it by Danil around 6pm during our meeting... tell me if I am wrong, but isnt it evening already?
    Anyway, it is ooc knowledge so I cannot do anything about it... /OOC

    Lucas

    No information came till 12, so he assumed nothing urgent is happening right now.
    He tries to find out if the guid issues combat relatd missions to its members and checks where the young psions are learning how to use their abilities.

    John notices Mana in conversation outside the guild

    I wonder what she is talking about. She seems worried but to be honest she has seemed worried since I met her. I won't interrupt her whatever they are talking about seems important.

    John waits inside for Mana to finsih her conversation.

    The two of them keep talking and switching from anger to laugher. They seem to be having a "Girl talk". Mana motions towards the guild, and the two of them seem to be comparing notes.

    ~Lucas~

    The mercenary guild covers combat missions. Most of the psions are studying at the magical school.

    Okay this could take a while I should use this time to get a feel for the general layout of the Guild house.

    John wanders the Guild house not searching for anything in particular but keeping his eye out for a library or study of some kind.

    '... no combat, huh? Peaceful for a bunch of people capable of burning this town to the ground with sheer force of will...'

    He shrugs and walks to check the magical school. He spends there some time watching the classes. If someone asks, he answers that he would like to take an apprentice in nearest future and would like to ... learn how to teach well. He even takes some notes.

    After spending around two hours there, he leaves saying that he will be back tomorrow and goes back to crafting till the group meeting at 6pm.

    4h crafting
    In theory I can sell spells, at marvelous prices of 8 gp for 1st level or 50 gp for 2nd level. I don't think any of my 2nd level powers would be of any real use to anyone, but some of 1st level are used in crafting items.
    Do I get some money for this/ roll something/ don't sell any as there are a lot of other people doing this?

    Eventually Mana walks into the guild. "I need names, she says to you. I need the name of everyone who is going to the Takuga region. You said the Baron was making the group, do you have any idea of who he will pick?"

    The other girl stands there with a cute smile....and fangs.

    Lexin

    You make 8 gp from selling a level 1 power. You make your crafting rounds, and the school is mostly just students, outside of two girls talking about how their boyfriends are acting weird.

    He looks a bit confused. He thought that there would be someone teaching students in the school.'... is it self study for everyone? Isn't it a tad bit dangerous to let them learn to throw fireballs on their own?' He thinks as he watches them.

    To Loiosh "Is it normal?"

    The teachers seem to focus mostly on disciple rather than teaching actual magic , putting empathize on self-study and research.

    No more ideas what to do, at least till the group meeting/ tea with Princess...
    So I guess, we can assume that Lucas is already near Danil's house around pm, unless something happens earlier. Any information from others etc.

    What's she getting at. I don't want to let on how much I know about my travelling companions

    Um... hi. Who is going? I don't really know everyone the people who were at the meeting last night were Baron Danil, The Psionic Masters son Lucas, a mage named Tabetha I think and The knight who fought yesterday Zachary Smith. Why the sudden interest?

    John turns to the fanged girl

    Do I know this girl? might as well take a risk what the worst that can happen she thinks I'm crazy she can join the club of everyone else I've met

    I'm sorry I don't think we have been formally introduced. I am John Martin. May I offer you a drink.

    Did I really just offer someone with fangs a drink? Maybe I am crazy.

    Mana and the vampire girl run off, apparently you said something that gave them any idea.

    You find a forge in the back of the knight's quarters often used for repairing old armor and weapons by the squires.

    Okay then that was a little weird. I should probably be heading to Danil's house. Maybe I should warn him about vampires.

    We then (presumably) proceed to the palace (after eating lunch and trading stories, of course).

    At the gate I explain "The princess invited me and my friends to tea regarding a project for her."

    Real tea? How did that get in here?

    '...it would be a long conversation...' he thinks, as he tastes the tea himself... just enough to be polite.

    "Loiosh, is the situation informal enough for us peasants to speak freely?" He asks using telepathy... better to be sure...
