    Amana smiles smugly. "Well, Maru. You've certainly pulled together a well oiled team. I'd assume you've still got my contract to secrecy from the last time, or are there additional clauses?"

    Dr Maru turns to Amana. "They will learn to work together... or they will not. As to your secrecy contracts, they are still secure, but if you want this mission you must sign the contract for it." With that, he slides over a copy of the mission contract.

    Horace steps forward and takes up a pen.

    'ey! now's not the time! We have business to attend to. Once we kill the man, we can claim our reward and spend it on all the ale you want. He says with a grin.

    He then scans the contract for anything fishy. Search or anything like that required?

    ooo! or candyland?? thog loves candyland!
    No, Thog! It's just an expression. We're NOT playing "Candyland".

    Checking the contracts would definitely be an INT check to parse the legalees. Both Horace and Ugruk are a little overwhelmed in places, but neither finds anything suspicious. It all seems to line up with what he said. The only worrisome thing is a clause specifically absolving Dr Maru of any liability in the case of insanity or loss of your soul, in addition to the usual caveats.

    And no, there's no ale.

    "Theft seems a bit undignified, but I guess it'll keep me in the game." Amana peers over the contract, muttering to herself, occasionally "Loss of soul? Ah, some things never change." After looking over the contract, she signs it, and hands it back.

    Dr Maru pauses for a moment, looks at the door expectantly, then shrugs. "You may go."

    You are each left with a copy of the second contract, which contains the address of the DeFoe residence. The house is three stories high and wider than it is long, but the architecture is fairly simple. The property is surrounded by a very tall polished stone wall on three sides, and an iron fence along the front. Anyone can see the two Wolfkin guards out front, but only someone who knows where to look will spot the Rattakin on the roof. How and when you choose to approach it is up to you.

    Outside, Wrackspurt runs up to the merchant selling the magical trinkets and says, huffing and puffing, accent completely gone. "Your wife (or husband) has been badly injured! She (or he) told me to come and tell you to go home immediately! Don't worry about the merchandise, I'll make sure no one steals it or my name isn't Winton Jaysworth. Go, GO!

    He passed his Sense Motive; rolled well, and you don't survive as a businessman without at least a few ranks there.


    Now that you're in the store, you realize that most of the items are purely decorative or trite; there's a magical stone for removing wine stains from clothing, an "anti-gravity" pen holder that magically suspends your pens an inch off the ground, a thermos that can be set to warm or chill things, and a wide variety of items that glow or beep or turn by themselves or sparkle if you touch them.

    Agh! I forgot to pick my extra language! I think I'll pick... Gnome.[/metagame]

    And as for "Horace the Paladin"... every evil campaign needs a straight man. A sadistic, cold-hearted straight man.

    Besides, if we're wanted as thieves that will make all the rest of our jobs harder.

    Amana sighs and shakes her head at her companions goings-on. "May Pyremius blessing be on us for this...I fear we'll need all the help we can get." she mutters to herself, before stepping in between the other two. "If you want something from here, you should just buy it, instead of trying to convince the store owner his wife is dying. For now, lets just focus on our contract, yes?" as she speaks she gives the gnome a look of disdain.
