    The halfling grunts, "If you're buying, I'm listening. Don't count on me going on some fool mission or idiotic sight-seeing trip."

    Baelham

    Revealing the map provided by Ker, Baelham continues. "We're looking for someone said to be hiding out somewhere nearby." He points to the three locations, in the order of probability Ker had mentioned. "We believe he's at one of these places, and we intend to investigate each area until we find him. Of course," He smiles. "we are willing to pay you in gold."

    Vafra

    Vafra sits impatiently at the table waiting for the food she ordered to arrive. Vafra begins with a lite tapping of her foot. She counts slowly to ten inside her head and her foot stops tapping for a moment. But as soon as her silent counting had ceased her foot began tapping in irritation and hunger again. While Vafra knew that little time had been passed between her order being taken and the entrance of her companions she was impatient and quite hungry.

    Baelham

    With the halfling's hesitation to reply, Baelham decides to make an offering. "How do 50 pieces sound? I'm sure you'll find few other employers willing to give so much for so simple a task."

    Loghren

    Loghren grabs a mug, sits down next to Baelham, and looks the guide over. He does not try to look intimidating, but he knows that's not always easy for a man of his stature. Throughout the dialogue, he looks at the guide, never looking away.

    She'll chose a seat (somewhere away from Vafra...) and she'll eat whatever is offered. She listens and waits for the potential guide to reply.

    "Sounds desperate. What aren't you telling me? That's lizard country up there, that is. You're either desperate or crazy if you're wanting to go up that way." He tucks into the food as the tavernkeep brings it around, although he continues to eye Vafra speculatively while he eats and talks.

    Vafra

    Vafra gives the man her trademark ominous stare through her mask. Vafra is an odd sight as she digs in to her food. Her fork appears to travel straight through her mask on its search for her mouth. Vafra chews slowly and with an audible swallow the fork extrudes itself from her mask and is placed gingerly on her plate.

    "Crazy," Vafra says responding to Tew, "Yes, that would describe us accurately enough. The offer is 50 gold now, and when we return another 50 and no more questions. Do we have a deal or should we take our business elsewhere?"

    Loghren

    Loghren smiles at the man he hopes will still potentially be their guide. "It's not so much crazy or desperate as it is that we really don't feel like spending our time wandering aimlessly about town trying to determine who can get us to where we want to go. The Tavernkeeper recommended you. Also, while we are well aware that it is dangerous up there, I'm sure that you know what those dangers are. We need someone who can tell us what they are and show us where they are, so we either can avoid them or hit them straight-on. That seems much better to me than being caught by surprise. We are well-equipped and experienced fighters. With your knowledge and our ability, I'm sure we can keep you safe while we reach our goal. Not only will we do all we can to make sure you are relatively unhurt, in fact, I would insist that if trouble happens, you do what you can to stay safe. We need a guide who will last and live. It wouldn't do us a bit of good to put you at any more risk than necessary. Which is why we would like to get this deal taken care of sooner rather than later. And, sometimes, it's easier to make a good offer from the start rather than sitting around and negotiating. That just wastes time that we could spend planning, learning from you, and preparing ourselves for whatever dangers are out there"

    Alphonse

    Strolling up to the would-be-guide, Alphonse takes out a small pouch. "How would a bag of Archibalds do you to help us?" He lays the bag down at the halflings feet, and a few platinum pieces are visible peaking through. Perhaps Archibald is the name of the figure on the coins, a local figure wherever they were minted. Or perhaps Alphonse enjoys the idea of 'coining' a phrase. (The bag contains ten platinums)

    Turning away from the halfling's gaze, Baelham's face is visibly consumed by frustration. "How much money do you have? We might need that for something important - so give him some time to consider what we've laid on the table before throwing more at him!"

    Tew eyes the pouch of platinum coin for a moment before shaking his head emphatically. "My answer is no. You might make me rich, but riches do no good to a dead man. Thanks for the drink," he says, downing the ale and getting up from the table. "But you can find some darn fool around here to take your over-priced guide job." He nods once to Vafra before leaving the inn.

    Once Tew leaves, Baelham's open hand meets his forehead with an audible slap, then slowly reaching down toward his chin, pulling down the skin of his face as he shields his eyes and gritting teeth that mark his agony quite well.

    He suffers his frustration silently, however, and breathes a moment before addressing the party "Okay..." He says with a quiet voice. "...let's...try to find someone else, then." he stares a bit vacantly into the floor a few feet away. "And..." he then shoots a glance to each member. "...how about we let me do all the talking, hmm?"

    Imani looks equally frustrated, one hand is on her dagger, fingering the hilt. It would be so pleasant to rid themselves of one nuisance... but she won't. Both hands end up where everyone can see them. She drinks whatever is in her mug, Yes, let's, as she glares in Alphonse's direction.

    Vafra

    Vafra nods to Tew as he leaves with a raised eyebrow. Why the nod? Snatching up the bag of 'Archibalds' Vafra shoves it into Alphonse's hands and gives him the same ominus stare that she had previously given everyone else; a stare that said sit down and shut up before I sit you down and shut you up. "Agreed," Vafra says to Baelham grudingly, "But be quick about it and find someone already I would rather not have to do it myself..."

    Baelham returns to the tavernkeeper. "It would appear the man you suggested our group employ isn't currently for hire. You wouldn't happen to know of any other reliable trappers or hunters who could serve as a guide, would you?"

    Loghren

    Unsure if his long-winded rant was at least partially to blame, in addition to the ridiculous constant offer of coin, Loghren finds a seat by himself. He sits, drinking a mug of ale, and staring blankly at the table, doing his best to think of as little as possible. I'll let them take care of getting us a guide. No need to stick my boot in my mouth again.

    A seedy looking half-elf with a weasel-like nose looks over the top of his beer as Baelham speaks to the barkeep. "I might could show you 'round. Where you lookin' to head, and how much you offerin'?"

    Baelham, somewhat relieved to find another prospective guide so soon, immediately turns toward the half-elf, and approaches him.

    Sense motive: 10 on the Half-Elf dude. You totally asked for it when you described him as "seedy"


    "Up into the mountains. We have a map, but no bearings of the area." He glances to the other members of the party, and then back, before revealing the map they were given. "You could say we're a band of explorers, out to find treasures of both historical and monetary value. The place we're looking for is one of the locations marks on this map, we're sure, but there's no telling which it is. Of course, we understand that since it may be a bit of work, asking you to bring us from place to place, without handsome payment, would be out of the question. And so, we are prepared to pay you a sum of fifty gold coins for your troubles - after we arrive at our destination, of course. Does that sound suitable to you?"

    (Sorry for the delayed reply. Seems any time I had time to post, I couldn't get the site to load right.)

    Baelham detects no hidden motives in the half-elf, beyond an obvious desire to earn some coin for what he appears to consider an easy job. "For fifty gold, I might could take you to the Gates of Destruction and back-- if'n I knew where they was at. Still, as that ain't where you're lookin' to head, I think we can come to an agreement sure enough. When you lookin' to leave?" The prospective guide smells heavily of drink, but he appears to be alert and sober despite it.

    Quite pleased, Baelham cannot keep himself from smiling - something he is not prone to doing. He almost begins to name a time, but considers the smell of alcohol before speaking. "We'd like to leave tomorrow, somewhat early. Not at the break of dawn, mind you, but early morning - preferably just after breakfasttime. Can you meet us here then?"

    The guide is quite willing to take up an offer of a free meal, and joins you. After a night broken only by the occasional sound of raucous behavior drifting up from the common room, you find the guide waiting for you in the common room, tucking into a breakfast spread laid out for the party. "You're pickin' up the bill, I trust?"

    Imani comes down the next morning and when he asks her. She looks at him, "Yes...we are" She sits down across from him and serves herself from the food available. "Do you have your own horse stabled here? Or will you require us to 'buy' you one?" She's working to keep the sarcasm and irony out of her voice, but she isn't quite succeeding.

    Rubbing his eyes a bit as he comes into the room, Baelham is - as usual - looking a bit weary. He sits himself at the table, looking a bit more lively as he gets a closer look at the assortment of food. "Get down you can quickly - once Alphonse gets up, he'll start stuffing everything he can into his pockets without regard to who's eaten."

    After his usual discussions with Vafra about not sleeping in the bed with him, Loghren settles down for the night. He drags himself awake, stumbling out to face the day, following a couple of steps behind Baelham. "It's true. Grab whatever you want before Alphonse gets it." Loghren grabs a large chunk of bread and a mug of ale, then drops himself into a chair.

    Waking lazily, Alphonse straps on his boots, overlooks his books and heads downstairs. "Morning, friends." He seats himself at the table, and takes a meager portion of food. He looks to no one in particular and speaks aloud, "I must keep my figure, after all".
