A.D.V.E.N.T.U.R.E.

Actually Damn Veracious Escapism Novel To Unite Resurgent Eccentrics


Welcome, friends and strangers, to a warm and cozy tavern in a foreign land. Don't mind the flying chairs and wine bottles, if you catch one it's on the house. Where was I? Oh yes, on the new continent where borders change and new ways to die are discovered daily. It is here that our story begins, like most stories do, with a woman.


"KEEPERH, MORRRE BEER!"
"I know you ain't got coin to pay for that Friga!"
"AHS IF AH'D PAYH FORR THIISS WAT-*HIC*-WATERED DOWN PISSH ANYWAYHS!"
"OI! Not paying I can tolerate but you don't just insult a man's beverage and get away with it! OUT! OUT!"
"AH WASH JUSTH LEAVINK! BUT AH'LL HAAAVE YOU KNOW I GOT ME A SURRREE WAYY TO G-GET RRRRIIIICH!"

The woman tries to stand up but stumbles on her chair and falls flat on her face in front of the door. Certainly a fine gentleman will appear to help a precious lady like her.

The door opened to reveal a Quessir traveler, his long silver hair blowing in the wind. He walked, forward nearly stepping on the woman's hand, but stopped just in time. The man looked down with worried, gentle eyes and crouched down reaching to help the unfortunate female.

"Oh no, a fellow narcoleptic! Don't worry, I'll move you out of harms way until you wake up."

Across the counter, a g'rrr with magnificent green and yellow scales turns his head. He finishes his drink and walks up to the crouching elf, putting a clawed hand on his shoulder.

'Wait up elf, there may be hidden danger. Allow me.'

He reaches his hand behind his back to grab his spear. He can feel the elf's silent protest but before any words are spoken he swiftly flips the spear and pokes the woman with the butt end. Once more. And one more for good measure.

'She's out alright. All yours.'

A rather singular fellow who had been nursing water and been nibbling on a piece of dried meat rose up to follow the drunken woman and the jovial Quessar. He was extremely tall. His snout, blue and orange, his robes white, underneath a silvery tail poked out. When he walked out of the tavern, a soft jingling confirmed that either he carried a big purse or wore a lot of metal underneath his robes, maybe both, this individual did not seem poor, an eccentric traveller far away from his home land. Outside of his robe he seemed to be carrying a bronze spear head, but no spear.

As he passed the bar, he passed a few coins of foreign origin to the bar tender. "Thanks for the drink, warm blood." he said with a lisp.

He followed the woman and the Quessar outside, curious to know about this scheme to get rich and maybe interested in the identities of these other eccentric warm bloods.

As he approached, a kinsman walked up and poked the woman. It seemed rather comical and crude, but it was also looking to be crowded. "I hope I am not interrupting a mugging, my good man, for I have business with this woman. Allow me to introduce myself." the fellow said as he smiled or at least, what seemed to pass for one among G'rrr. His mannerisms were odd and haughty, but he seemed to want to be friendly. "My name is Sir G'sh'rr of the house of Sh'rr. I suggest we escort this warm blood to safety and exchange pleasantries."

Pausing for the briefest of moments to assess the self-proclaimed knight he had never heard of before. Why not?

'Call me Gr'n. Gr'n of the Hn'tr clan. I was trying to protect our sleepy friend here from a potential accident but if this woman is as drunk as she looks he was going to be fine. Lucky even.'

Looking at the elf.

'Do you have any revival oils?'

The Quessir finally stood up, supporting the woman on his shoulder, his long black cape rustling under the weight.

"I do try to avoid being judgemental, but so far your race has proven quite crass, although at least well meaning. One pokes a defenseless woman and the other accuses me of banditism for merely trying to help a lady.

In any case, my name is Elwolid of the Starlit Treetop and while I do carry special salts designed to awaken a person, there is no need for that. The lady only requires a good sleep in a safe location, which is where I intend to take her."

Knowing that Sir G'sh'rr would be unlikely to leave the elf alone with the unconscious woman, the lizard decides to avoid more pointless talk.
He doesn't believe there is coin to be made on the words of a drunk human but the more doors you open, the more opportunities.

'Well met Elwolad, we will be joining you then. I'm sure our new friend would want to see her escorted safely and you could probably use some help.'

G'sh'rr sizes up the hunter and the Quessar. He estimates them to be quite harmless, mostly harmless even. He bows "My apologies, master Treetop and kinsman Gr'n. I was merely cautious and jesting. Rather unbefitting of our status, mayhaps."

He accepted what the Quessar said. "Very well, lead the way master Treetop. I shall follow until my business is include. I am sure you understand."

"Yes, yes, very good."

Elwolid shifted the woman propped against him into a more comfortable position and started walking. Then he stopped. Then he looked around for a bit. Finally, he turned back to the two G'rrrs.

"So... err... where would you suggest to find safe lodgings around here? You see, I just came to town and have not had the time..."

"G'Day, mate!" the shabby looking man said as he stumbled down the streets towards the rather peculiar scene.

There before him stood one of those pointy eared folks, and two of those weird scalie things, in the middle of what appeared to be the act of mugging a poor, defenseless, senseless, drunkard of a woman.

The man himself was a rather lanky fellow, with short black hair that seemed to have too much fat in it, an unshaved face, and rather shifty looking eyes. Dressed in what appears to have once been a very fancy looking traveling suit, but which weather and age have worn out, and leaning on a crooked cane of sorts.

"Or I guess it is more like G'evening at this point." the man chuckled "So, what did ya get?"

The woman twitches, raises an arm to her forehead and rubs it lightly.
"More than old man Kar'ss beer that'sss for sshuure.", she then moves her arm to her side and carefully feels the bruises there.
"Ah don't rememberr theesss...", then she seems to realise the people surrounding her are there. A surprisingly keen gaze lands on each one in turn.
"You seem like capable folk.", she slids down from the shoulder and lands on her feet. "I know of a place where we can converse.", taking the lead she turns right into a dark alley. "John's lodgings is the only place taking travelers this late. The guards might tolerate the locals a few hours more but new faces wandering the streets at night will have only one way to face the dawn.", she nods towards the public square. "Don't want that."

She turns left to an opening between buildings and hammers on a thick wooden door. "Open up. Got proper folks with me."

A thud followed by two more echo from inside before a short bald man peeks his head out the door and eyes them suspiciously. The head disappears, one more thud and the door opens revealing a small room with two tables and a stove. "Get in."

Friga pushes past the man and motions the rest to sit down on the floor around the left table. As they get in the man motions to a simple rack behind the door. "Arms."

As they settle around the table John closes the door and secures it with three thick wooden bars. As the last one drops into place Friga hits her dagger handle down on the table.
"Last night a man arrived at the gates after nightfall. He was mumbling incoherently something about bat country. In the morning when they opened the Gates to check he was dead.", she spins the dagger in her hand and lays it on the table with the runes in the blade clearly visible. "This-", she points at the head. "- is the Insignia of the clan Ghorzan." She pauses to look each one of them in the eyes. "They run the largest silver mine in all the known countries and twice a year a caravan passes by here on their way to the coast from there. This year, there has been no caravan."

Gr'n wears a passive expression.

'What about it? Maybe they are bringing the silver to another town. Maybe their recent reserves are not enough to share. There must be more to the story to assume there is coin to be made.'

The man sighed as the woman, this Friga, finished speaking. The man had followed this group because he thought this might be interesting, but he shaked his head as he looked up and spoke.

"This all you've got? A two-bit rumour about some missing caravan belonging to some shorties? And here I thought there was actual moneymaking involved." the man let out a dry laugh as he shaked his head and begun to turn towards the door.

Friga shakes her head at the hunter.
"You don't understand since you're not from here. The only other route down from those mountains with cargo like that is to the Commune claimed jungles on the east side and the Anorean waterways down from there. With the constant border conflicts between the Sh'ks and the Eastern Aristoracy there's no way under the heavens they'd ever send a shipment that valuable through there.", having explained that she adds.
"Also the Confederation tariffs are far more reasonable."

She take a good drink from the beer that John had placed in front of her before continuing.
"Of course everybody assumed there was no shipment, problems at the mines, an uprising of the lower caste or something." Another good chug. "Heavens! This is proper ale, you spoil me my friend." She whips the dagger in her hand the other way around. "Of course, this changes everything." With a quick flick of her wrist the dagger goes flying towards the door and as it passes by the man's ear it produces a bright blue flash accompanied by a crackling sound. The smell of lightning and charred hair lingers in the air.
"A man doesn't simply get a hold of one of those. Perhaps he looted it off a dead noble. Perhaps he stole it from a living one. Maybe he was asked to seek help and given it as proof of his quest." Taking one more long chug from her drink she finishes it. "Either there's a fortune out there waiting to be picked up or a family ready to part with one for the return of their kin. One thing is certain regardless, the finders will be set for life."

She puts down her tankard with her eyes gleaming.
"And I know where to start."

The man stops as the dagger flies past his head. Turning around, the man wears a sinister smile on his face. "Intrigue, fortune, and certain danger. Why, those are all the ingredients needed for quite the recipe!"

The man takes a step forward before bowing as elegantly as possible in his ragged state. "The name is Smiles, Jack Smiles, at your service with a grin!" the man's grin widened "Where do we start?"

"Pleased to meet ya. The name's Friga." She points at the Ithilian snoring with his head on the table. "We start by following his example. It's already past business time. Tomorrow we stock up."

At dawn she greets them with a clear look in her eyes.
"We're expecting a month's worth of travel at worst. Woods, forests, rockies if we have to go to the mines. We'll need rations, basic equipment and beasts of burden."

"Now, any of you got any money or skillsets suitable for procurement?" She asks with an innocent smile.

Gr'n groans in displeasure.

"Let's just get this over with before I decide it's a waste of my time. I am short on gold but I have my hunting tools and I can find my own food. If it will speed things up, let's pool our coin and I'll go haggle our travelling supplies. "

Friga clasps her hands.
"Excellent! We shall head off to do that then. I'm sure the rest of you can find us some pack animals in the meantime. We'll depart tomorrow at dawn from the north gate, don't be late."

She turns back one more time before heading out of the door:
"There's a dealer named Jahan who keeps his stock outside the east gate. A big black human with a high, red hat. He's got everything from Ganarran sandsurfers to Alachian mountain goats. He can be a bit touchy about his appearance though, so be polite if you want fair prices. Oh, and probably better not to mention who sent you. We have a...history."

Out of the door she guides Gr'n through the backstreets to a relatively peaceful part of town making smalltalk on the way.
"So tell me master hunter, how much does a g'rrr eat on the road?"

The human with a look of a sellsword had been hanging around the merchants in and out the Eastern Gate for quite a bit now, ever since the curfew in the town ended for the day. The man had his dark brown hair with strands of silver in them tied into a braid, and wore a double braided beard as well. He had heterochromic eyes - the right one was brown, and the left was green. There was a scar running down his face as well, the lower portion of it ws covered by the dense beard the mn had. He seemed to be well armed, carrying a round shield, a longsword, a plain dagger and a war hammer as well. He wore rather plain garments, consisting of a simple black leather doublet, black linen shirt and pants, with knee high  leather boots with added steel plates on them. His hands were protected by a pair of gauntlets On top of his doublet he wore a plain cuirass with tassets, that had seen a lot of wear, and has long lost is polished look, and had a lot of battle marks on it. By his belt, the man had his helmet, a bellows face sallet hanging, as well as several pouches. The helmet and the gauntlets had seen as much wear as the chestplate had. Overall, the man had looked like a seasoned veteran. On the left shoulder of his doublet, he had a sigil sown on - a black Bear holding an axe in a field of gray.
The man was browsing the stalls of merchants at the moment, not looking for anything particular to buy, but it seemed to be listening in for anything of interest that the other people might be talking.

Jack looked at the others left in the tavern "Well then, shall we be off to Jahan merchant? I must confess, I hardly know a thing about proper animals and such, but I do know a bit about the merchantile process."

With a grin he spun around and headed towards the market stalls.
