    Elmir and Glim, looking around the square, seem to find that the rowdiest and most rambunctious place in town would be the Goat's Head. You head towards the grungy building, ready to listen in on any rumors that might be flowing. As you enter, you make your way around the crowded tables and sea of bodies crammed into the space to small to make your way to the dark, wooden bar, slick and sticky with spilled alcohol. An old halfling man dressed in a ratty apron sits behind the bar, polishing a dented metal mug. "What'll it be?"

    Faye and Caspar follow the woman's instructions and make their way to a small, stone temple. It contains many small shrines to various gods and pantheons scattered about the main hall, and the smell of incense is thick in the air. A few blue-robed priests tend to the shrines around, not seeming to acknowledge you.

    Becca can choose to follow either group.

    "I'll have an ale." Glim says. Once the bartender brings it: "Thanks. My friend and I are new to town. Any interesting places or happenings around this place?"

    "Some ale as well, please." Elmir continues to keep an eye out.

    Two dented mugs are set in front of you and promptly filled with cheap ale. The halfling turns to Glim: "Nothin' ever happens in Cadmoor. Just a dot on da map, really. Best be out of here-" he gives you a stern glare- "at first opportunity. Go to Aaranumbral- those damned elves will have some use for you up there, unlike this little hamlet." He goes back to cleaning the mugs.

    Behind you, Elmir hears the sounds of a small table of gruff, older human men gruffawing about his ears. They are whispering jokes and insults to each other, each one with the elvish race at the butt of the joke, trying to stealthily point at you and failing miserably on the subtlety.

    Entering the temple, Faye takes a moment to let her eyes adjust to the dimmed light inside. She then looks around the hall, searching for a shrine dedicated to the goddess of wanderers to who she occasionally pays her respects on her travels through the Vipernoss.

    She shares her observations with her companions in a hushed tone in order not to disturb the temple's peace.

    Caspar follows Faye closely as to not arouse any suspicion. His eyes wander over the various shrines laid out around them, and quietly asks Faye for help finding a patron of music somewhere amongst the collection. In the meantime, he watches the priests as they go about their duties, examining their behavior for anything that might be out of the ordinary.

    In the Goat's Head, a halfling man stares down Glim and Elmir. He turns to Glim first. "No, we don't gen'rally think the elves think too highly of us, seein' as they won't let us intae their fancy city. We don't even want inn, anyway," he mutters to himself, tossing a sour look at Elmir. "And no, newcomers get unsavory attention 'round here, so us villiage folk don't take a shine to adventurers."

    In the temple, you look around and find the gods you were looking for. Odin, god of travels and wisdom, among other domains, draws Faye, not to mention Sol, god of the sun. She performs the proper religious ceremonies at the small, cluttered shrines without making a complete fool of herself.

    Meanwhile, as Caspar looks for the god of music, he also keeps an eye out for the blue-robed acolytes. They don't seem to be doing anything outwardly evil or sinister. Some of them appear to have taken some oath of silence, and a form of sign language seems to be taking place between a few of the priests. However, you're unable to ascertain what it means. After a few minutes of looking, you're unable to find a god of music.

    "Best be on our way, then." Glim says, standing up from the bar. "Unsavory attention though. Who from?" He pays for his drink while talking, and his best to make his questions seem like innocent afterthoughts.

    Elmir apologetically shrugs toward the Halfling, and puts down a bit more than it would take to cover the drink. He glances back at the laughing men.

    Rebecca looks around and finds a scrawny, younger human male with unkempt brown hair and wide eyes. His robes appear to be slightly more rumpled than the robes of those around, and he looks to be thy type of person to constantly be flustered by every development, if you had a guess. He speaks in a raspy whisper. "Salutations, and welcome to the Temple of Fortune. Please try to remain quiet and respectful while you're here, as we have some individuals who have taken a vow of silence, and we'd like you to try and respect that. Are you looking for any god or goddess in particular?"

    As Elmir and Glim shoot glances back at the rowdy table, they quickly grow more quiet, muttering among st themselves. You see a half-orc among them dressed in the robes of a laborer crack their knuckles and reach for a dented and well-used pickaxe below the table.

    Faye spends some minutes kneeling in silent prayer at the shrine of Sol, then rises and joins Caspar again. "I'm afraid, I didn't see any shrine dedicated to a god of music around," she whispers while smoothing out the folds of her habit.

    After making sure that nobody is overhearing them, she adds in an even lower voice: "But none dedicated to some infernal entity either."

    We just wanted to take a look at the shrines. Are vows of silence common on the priesthood?

    "Relatively so, yes. It's a bit of a Cadmoorian tradition. Personally, I came from Zinterwald, another city not 3 days from here, so I didn't feel comfortable taking the vow, as I don't know how long I'm staying." He catches himself talking about himself, and shakes his head. Humility is apparently one of his virtues. "If you have any questions about the vows, I'd be happy to be a vessel of communication between you and one of the acolytes."

    Sure, um, what other vows are common? Rebecca asked.

    Elmir puts a hand on his scimitar, and follows closely behind Glim. He keeps an eye on the half-orc. "Watch the one with the pick," he says quietly.

    The acolyte speaks to Rebecca. "Well, I take an oath of humility. There's also those who try and consume as little as possible, spend as much time as possible unconscious or on select drugs, but they're the minority by far. The most common is a vow of silence, and that's about half of us."

    Meanwhile, as Elmir and Glim make a motion to exit the Goat's Head, the half-orc growls and hefts the pick, but as you motion to leave, all he does is stand menacingly, eyes following you out the dented and warped doors. You are back in the sunlit square.

    Wait, wait, as much time, don't you mean as little time? Rebecca clarifies.

    "Well, it depends on the oath. Some claim that certain herbs and drugs allow for enlightenment." He looks uncomfortable for a second, like he's holding in an opinion, then says "of course, I believe this to be dumbfou-" He claps a hand over his mouth, a bug-eyed expression on his face. "I'm sorry," he whispers, "sometimes it's hard to contain one's opinion..."

    I'm not judging. Rebecca assures the boy.

    "Well, that was informative. Lot of grievance in this bunch." Glim says quietly once they are out of earshot of anyone else. "Got a bit dicey back there, but sometimes the only way to see if there's a swarm of hornets in a nest is to keep shooting sparks at it until something comes out or it catches on fire. Let's go see how the rest are doing."

    Caspar decides that an offering to the god of travel would be fitting for, well, a traveler, and leaves a few coins at the shrine. He sits down on the floor and offers a silent prayer for a few minutes. Satisfied that he had found everything he was searching for, he leaves the temple and waits for the other two to finish their business within.

    As you all reconvene just outside of the temple, you realize just how long you've gone without sleep and quality food. The sun is slowly falling towards the horizon, casting a red glow about the thin, wispy clouds above. You think it would probably be a good idea to get some food in your belly and a good night's sleep.
