And Vlad thinks if it can't talk better than a goblin it probably dies screaming like a goblin.
EDIT: Incidentally, the minotaur story is true. Vlad (who at the time was a barbarian 3 / Fighter 1 non-gestalt) took a bullhead out in one-on-one combat. He crawled down a well and after dropping from a rope that didn't make it all the way to the bottom he found a Minotaur inside (odd campaign). Minotaur won initiative, charged, and rolled a 1. Vlad and the minotaur each got in a full round of melee and on round two the minotaur went down. I was fairy impressed. However, later in the same day Vlad also took an ogre in one-on-one combat. At that point I was really impressed.

Poor Aivlis then. She is a bit shy, with great aspirations but shy.
THEChanger... it's not clear are you flying out of the window? You are in a second floor I am sorry it seems I didn't made that really clear earlier, you are in the Broken Tree it's a tavern of Arcadia were most of the Wall Defenders meet.
I just figured she was some sort of mystical elf girl and maybe a member of some tribe out in the wilderness or something. I hadn't given it much thought. You can gloss over the information if it would ruin everything for me to find out.
EDIT: Lol. Just realized I maybe should have. Slight dumbass moment on my part, sorry. I can be thickheaded.
Yes, I now have suspicions on who she was.

Some background on important characters of Arcadia

Edit: Incidentally a description of everyone's character would be helpful to describe each of you to one another, since you are starting to cross.
The woman you see is fairly young, perhaps between 18 and 24. She's a bit on the pale side and has long, dark hair. Her eyes are blue and her face is slightly angular. Those especially familiar with grooming can easily tell that she keeps quite good care of her appearance and the results are obvious - she's quite beautiful.
She wears light armor, clearly very well made, which provides protection without taking much maneuverability. The armor itself follows the contours of her body, sacrificing a degree of protection to instead highlight her form. The armor is a deep brown color, in some places almost black.
Closer inspection reveals that she is completely unarmed - not even a hidden dagger.
Those who would have the skills to recognize such things can tell that there's something...a bit off about the way she stands and looks at things.
Not Person_Man, don't thank me for things he did.
Yes she is quite out of your league at the moment, she does fight unarmed though (0 equipment, that might be a bonus) the rest of NPCs have NPC wealth by level invested in equipment.
Major NPCs that the party has met are:
-Rothrick Glenfusson leader of the Wall Defenders (met by Madoc)
-Marcia Longshadow leader of the Silent Knights (met by Ripley, seen by Madoc and Nor)
-Eilis Crimson champion of the arena (met by Vlad)
-"Talky" crazy dragon prophet ("met" by Ripley)
-Maron Goldtooth (seen by Nor)
This man appears quite approachable, with an easygoing face that usually betrays only the slightest hint of intensity. Recently stress has been piling up, leading to a somewhat worried expression, but it doesn't detract from his overall appearance. He has long, blond hair, down slightly past his shoulders, and has piercing blue eyes. He is decently muscled, though not overly so, and it looks like a hit from him could hurt.
He wears a breastplate, which while bulky enough to slow him down some, appears to be made of a very fine material and is light to the touch. He carries a greatsword slung across his back and has a whip at his side. He looks like he knows how to use his weapons well.
If someone were to here him talk, he has a commanding voice, which seems to come from more than just him.
In said waiting room there is also a scholar woman who is engaged in a conversation with Nor she is almost whispering so it is hard to hear them without being noticed. Ripley is waving at Madoc who just entered the room.
On the taverns, Vlad hasn't really discovered who the weird elf was, other than she is trustworthy and that people are scared to fight her. He has also heard of the Goldtooth expedition as is starting to go in that direction. Rosapia is trying to gather information and has met Farri Farrinson, colonel of the Wall Defenders.
Other than that people are probably going to gather pretty soon, and the real quest is going to get started. I hope everyone is enjoying the experience and forgiving my many mistakes (rereading some of my posts I almost facepalmed, I fear I gutted a couple of dictionaries along the way). If anyone has suggestions, criticism or feedback feel free to comment.
This might not be the type of criticism you meant, but I've noticed that your longer sentences tend to lack commas. It's nothing major, but I've found myself inserting commas while reading your posts every now and then.
