    Seeing the conversations all over the place, Gunnar just sits slouching again and goes back to silence.

    Nonetheless, he keeps his attention on Sagar's answers and considerations.

    Gunnar stands up and comes closer to Thelia and Sagar - "Werewolves, uh? This is troubling... And makes sense... From what we could infer from the evidence in the scene, that was not the work of regular animals... An odd behaviour, that could betray intelligence and cruelty."

    Upon hearing Thelia's suggestion, Gunnar nods - "That would be appropriate." - Turning back to Sagar - "So... Uh... Any chance you would know some weaponsmith that works in alchemical silver?"

    Alth ponders the proposal. Pretend? That seems, well, gray. I've myself no qualms with the idea, though I worry about any problems that may arise because of these actions. He looks around Wait, is this why you wanted to meet with me? The entire group of you, I mean. So you could enter the tournament?

    Having gotten some food, Jeremi turns to Alth "I am with this group, since you asked" Sitting down, he continues, "We found a note about the tournament around the bodies, although that wasn't our goal on the way here."

    "I'm actually worried about the werewolves or lycans. I heard once a werewolf bit you, you'll become one of them but only happen in a full moon." Sarah was worried about the werewolves.

    Raziel is studying the conversation, when he finds a spot to join the discussion and answers Alth well that wasn't our plan , but you, my friend if you are going to join the tournament without a party you will have a bad time, from my point of view this is a bit of luck for you, we are experienced adventurers and travelers and our motivation is strong. It's a win-win situation for both of us, why are you so concerned about this opportunity?

    in the meantime Sagar takes some moments before answering Thelia well, around here Tempus is worshipped but mostly by Barbarian tribes which roam the area, every now and then you might find some shrines on the pathway, if you are looking for a temple of Tempus you might want to go to Luskan or Mirabar, I'm not sure in which city is, it is very noble from you to let the Tempus clergy be aware of the attack, if I can help my fellow Jeremi I can take the news for you he says with a smile, he looks very touched by your kindness.

    Regarding the Alchemical Silver weapon young men, the perfect place to find them is Luskan or Mirabar but then again Tribes have their own Blacksmith and they are very good with forging weapons, they might have some Alchemical Silver in stock and then it will take time to forge a masterwork weapon for you.

    "Raziel is correct. We're a very well balanced team and it will be an easy win in this tournament. By the way, Raziel are you going to join us in this tournament?"

    Upon hearing Raziel calling the group "experienced adventurers", Gunnar sounds surprised - "We are what now?"

    As soon as Sagar mentions Mirabar, Gunnar is startled and his attention is fully on the innkeeper and Thelia - "What? No. No need to go to Mirabar... Too long of a trip... Not worth it. Maybe the tribes. I'd rather meet a blacksmith from the tribes... Yes, they are renowned weaponsmiths. - He fumbles for words, grasping at straws.

    Thelia had a feeling that Gunnar didn't want to go to Mirabar. She wasn't sure why, but she would not ask in a full inn. Maybe later. she was also a bit surprised at 'experienced adventurers', but she didn't correct anything right now.

    "No need," she said to Sagar, "I'll see if there is a cleric at the tournament and tell there. Otherwise I'll write a letter and have that delivered. But thank you for the offer. Maybe if you could let the local law enforcement know about the werewolves, so they can be on their guard, that would be a good idea."

    When Alth nods Raziel explode in a big and wide smile Welcome to our marvelous team, I was sure that I made you a good offer he looks in his backpack for a map, then he clears the table Gather around and let me check He mumbles and then he signs one point and he draws a line on his map
    Folks, we got two possibilities here, either we rent a boat and then we go upstream or we can find woads, cross the river and walk near the Lurkwood forest, let me know what do you think is best

    Of course, I would never let you alone in the pit, I would be up there among the crowd cheering you up guys, I will be your wingman, washing your clothes, prepare your banquet, writing you songs so legends could arise, someone has to do it, and I will take this huge responsibility Raziel answers to Sarah joyfully.

    Thelia sniggered at Raziel's response.

    "Well..." - Gunnar started one of his long-winded considerations with a deep breath - "... As I understand it, our options are really subject to the weather. This is a river that runs between the mountains, and we may find rapids and whirlpools, specially if there are rains along the river... Even a flash flood, if there's significant rain close to the mountains... And that even if the weather seems clear where we are. As far as the information I have goes, there are lengths of the river without proper ports, like canyons and such. In those places, we won't be able to suddenly get out of the river, barring flight or teleportation magic..."

    "The Lurkwood, on the other hand, is an easier way to move, but its inhabitants may cause trouble... Orcs, lycanthropes and giants, for starters. By land, we would have to be cautious and stealthy..."


    He looks at each one of his companions, ending with the new one, Alth - "I mean... They would not call it adventure if there were easy ways." - He shrugs.

    "That being said, if we don't have any troubling weather forecast, I think we should try the river... But I would advise against heavier armors on board."

    The river is our best bet. It'll be great to be on a boat again. I feel like there's going to be a nostalgic flashback for me and my family on my family boat." Sarah smiles as she remembers great memories that she was on a boat with her family.

    "I'm ready to leave here. I don't know about the rest but I want to be in the boat and see the beautiful ocean." Sarah smiled.

    "It was going to be on a river, not the ocean," Thelia said to the Drow, "if we see the ocean, we went the wrong way. As to leaving, I just need to finish my breakfast, get my stuff and I'm good to go."
