    Soren looks grave "It is true. I followed a lead here, but it has borne no fruit, I fear. So I am left where I once was. Let us retire to a more private place where we may speak in secret, then." He looks at Kamiel, expectantly.

    Probably Sir Soren would be the formal way to address him, but as the two of them have struck up a friendship, calling him Soren would not be seen as inappropriate, I think.

    House *Lyrandar* is funding and supporting Cannith in this? Oh, that can't be good.

    Konnor glances at the source of the conversation.

    I should just leave this alone... causing a scene won't get me anything.

    Or I could...


    Konnor moves towards the conversation. "Excuse me," he says pleasantly.

    Kamiel nods and begins in earnest to look for a more private place.

    "What lead has that been, Soren?" he asks on the way.

    "Greetings Lord Mayor," Marsh charmingly says, "I'm delighted I was able to meet with you tonight. I've been looking forward to it. As a servant-daughter of the LeBlanche family, meeting with a real politician is simply thrilling. I strive to become involved in the body politick as well, and talking to the alpha male of Sharn himself..." She leaves the statement hanging, as though it was all she had to say.

    "I believe we can discuss politics of...that nature after we eat, Miss Leblanche." He motions to the chair once more, not seeming too annoyed yet.

    Konnor turns and sees that the two people speaking are gnomes, seemingly tourists.

    While waiting for an answer to his question, Kamiel starts to lead the way to the Dalannan Tower Commons.

    * * *

    When the two finally reach the open-air plaza atop Dalannan Tower, Kamiel indicates a quiet spot near the edge. The scent of thrakel spice mingles with other delicious scents wafting over from the vendour carts in the plaza, and the view of the neighbouring towers and the lower reaches of Sharn is nothing but spectacular. But the beauty of the area seems lost on the warforged, who takes a look-around and then settles his gaze upon Soren.

    "A dangerous weapon prototype has been stolen," he quietly begins. "Not long ago, a representative of House Cannith addressed the public in one of the lecture halls, looking for people of an adventurous bent to assist in the recovery of the prototype ..."

    Kamiel goes on, explaining what had happened in the lecture hall. He makes sure to accurately recount Menya d'Cannith's appeal, as well as her answers to the questions that had been posed. Then he waits for the Thrane to speak ...

    Marsh realizes that a nice way to chit-chat would be to bring up the Cyre refugees within Sharn, who are constantly pressured to pay funds to restore their old kingdom yet not given many privileges.

    Hoping to catch the eye of the two gnomes, Konnor continues.

    "My apologies for the interruption, but... I couldn't help overhearing your comment a moment ago. Allow me to introduce myself - my name is Randos d'Cannith, and I'm part of a special commission from my house to investigate the recent lapse in security. I would very much appreciate getting the entire story of your involvement with this, including your impressions of the project and the people involved - even secondhand information would be helpful."

    The Lord Mayor begins, but is interrupted by the waiter, a sharply dressed human. He makes an order and awaits for you to do the same.

    ---

    The gnome seems startled by what you show him and your threat, and backs down. Everyone on the skycoach (including the Warforged) seem to be looking at this spectacle.

    The gnome grumbles to himself, "Lousy Cannith folk always needing to hide their identities 24/7..."

    Konnor snorts amusedly at the gnome's remark. You have no idea... Still in his newly minted "tough guy investigator" persona, he turns and looks around the skycoach, saying as he does so:

    "Alright, folks, show's over... just a little misunderstanding."

    Konnor takes a seat near (or more preferably, across from) the gnomes. "Glad you decided to be reasonable - this won't take much of your time, and I'll even pay for your fare here, courtesy of the House - but we probably shouldn't have this discussion on the skycoach, hmmm?."

    The Lord Mayor's order of Karranth breaded veal with Aundair Bluevine wine arrives, and after a few moments yours is handed to you.

    "Are you fond of Thrane? They say you are what you eat, so..." He laughs, and then takes a sip of his wine before cutting into the veal.

    Marsh sips a bit of wine herself, before cutting delicately into her meat.

    "I'm not altogether fond of the Church of the Silver Flame running things there. I think a ruling power should be singular, straightforward, stalwart but flexible, unclouded by supernatural notions. Like yourself, Lord Mayor. But they have very good steak, I must say." She giggles lightly, taking a careful bite of food, wiping her mouth gently after.

    That sounds like an entirely too cliche place to get killed.

    "I tend to find that that sort of place is a bit less private than you might expect - and in all the wrong ways. How about the tavern nearest your stop?" Konnor indicates the skycoach with a gesture.

    Konnor notices the ominous wording but decides not to comment. There's caution, and then there's paranoia. There's no way he could have set up a trap at every location I could have picked. Maybe he doesn't have anything up his sleeve at all, and that phrase has no subtext in gnomish...

    Konnor will then wait for the ride to conclude. He will pay his additional fare with no fuss if the gnomes' stop is farther away than his.

    Konnor will head to the tavern too. Inside, he's going to try for a corner booth, or a table near the door, whichever is easier to get. He'll order a decent beer and sit down, scooting out a chair with his foot for the gnome.

    Konnor and the gnome walk in the Dancing Shadows district to a tavern. Tourists, travelers, and merchants fill the streets of this enormous district. Inns and taverns stretch as far as the eye can see. The quality is not exceptional, but there is no shortage of places to stay.

    You enter a nonremarkable taven, and the gnome sits beside you wherever you go.

    "So you want to hear of how I'm involved with D'Cannith's weapon, do you? Apologies for my companion's rude behavior in the skycoach by the way, but he doesn't speak much."
