- Not just any tables. - Coren smiled, as he put his hat back on - Only those with interesting people. And you are by far the most interesting bunch in this backwater town. Also, the most interesting people tend to make adventures which then turn to songs. And in time, those songs become legends, and the legends myths. All to stir the hearts of the people. And some people, inspired by these myths, take action. Action that sometimes changes the fate of us all. Such is the mysticism of a bard's spun tale.

Jin formed a bitter smile. Hey now Hoodwink, you fell into that one. Given the character of that way too easygoing priestess, we'll probably have one more person to worry about. And a bard no less, bards make for excellent spies. Jin decided to bide his time, waiting for the duo's response.

@All

A bard! Felicia’s eye sparkled, forgetting all the wariness that drifted in the atmosphere. The priestess’ mind easily floated into a daydream of having a bard as a companion. She is fond of music and has a good voice, loves to write songs and sing them. Felicia imagined how the bard plays his instrument while they travel.

She was smiling when Brand nudged her on the shoulder.  She looked at him clueless and saw him making some weird facial expression. His head was cocking into different directions. It was only then that she got back to the topic.

It took a moment before the priestess had decided. She looked at the fighter’s eyes and nodded. Brand’s eyes widened and darted from side to side. Felicia’s eyebrows met and sent the fighter a furious look.

Brand understood. He looked back at the men and said, “Easy boys, easy!”

“Well you know me and my priestess here are just passing by in this town. We are heading north to do some...” the fighter leaned closer to the strangers and motioned them with his hands to come closer. Without doubt, they responded.

“Treasure hunting,” he whispered to them.

“If you want to tag along, we’ll give you a decent share,” he added, his eyes gleaming while displaying a sly smile. “So? What say you boys?”

Jin casts a sidelong glance at Hoodwink. It seems obvious that there is a catch even without the curious yet amusing back and forth. Brand seems to be the voice of reason but Felicia calls the shots. Just as well, we'll have to learn to work together and a field trip would be a welcome change of pace. Whatever the catch, we'll handle it.

"Sounds good to me. Is there a specific prize you are eyeing or just adventuring around?"

Could it be that they are actually planning to adventure around aimlessly? Jin could imagine that kind of naivete from the googly-eyed priestess and he really hoped his nagging suspicion was off the mark. But it was also possible that the task they had in mind was challenging or plain risky.

- A treasure hunt? now that does sound interesting. I'd be most willing to accompany you on this endeavour. - Coren said.

“Perfect!” exclaimed Brand as he rubbed his hands in excitement. He turned to Felicia and said, “See priestess? I got us a few companions, just like we planned.”

“Uh… yes…” answered the bedazzled priestess, shrouded by the thought of the consequences of her decision. Her woman’s instinct tells her not to trust the newcomers. Felicia felt it was too fast but she also knew that they must act fast.

“Brand and I left the temple. We decided to live the life of the outside world. We knew it will be hard but we never knew it will be this hard,” the priestess explained to the monk.

“What we get from rendering my services isn’t enough for a living. I also felt it should be free. Goddess Amera teaches us to show love and compassion and as her servant, I should be its proponent,” she sighed at the thought.

“And there’s where my brilliant plan enters!” Brand butt in.

He would’ve continue to brag but a steamy tavern lady caught his attention. She was walking towards their table, bearing their food.

Brand whistled at the lady, “Hey there sexy!”

The lady shot a short glance at the fighter and smiled while placing down the plates. Brand bumped Felicia’s elbow and whispered, while locking his malicious eyes on the lady, “Just look at her booty! It’s so damn hawt!”

“Why would I do that?” the priestess argued, “I’m not interested in other people’s booty!”

She jabbed the fighter’s side with her elbow and whispered, “Stay focused will you? We might lose them if you keep doing that.”

“I know,” the fighter whispered back his eyes still following the tavern girl who was circling behind him making him twist and turn.

“Ohhh well, you see sexy, I’m a bit busy right now. How about later?”

((Brand on Persuasion Check: Roll d20))
((Result: Success))

The lady who was about to finish serving, chuckled at the cocky fighter. She looked at him with flirtatious eyes as she walked away from the table. She winked at Brand before taking her eyes away from him. A huge grin appeared on his face as he waved the lady goodbye.

“Oh where are we?” Brand asked as he turned back to the table.

"Your.. brilliant.. plan. So what have you conned us into? Speak openly, me and Hoodwink plan to stay by your side."

Let's see if the bard will stay. Nah, he's definitely staying but at the very least, the priestess should stay within our sight.

"Also, if your new acquaintance has hot friends, I wouldn't mind you introducing them. A toast to new friends! Say Coren, you know any good songs for the occasion?"

- A song to accompany a drink? sure, I have a few of those - Coren said as he picked up his cittern and strummed it. after a few chords, Coren began singing a jolly little song about some fellows demanding to bring nothing else but good ale

"Well, at the very least this is going to be... entertaining."

Fink downed his drink still reclining in his chair.

“Ohhhh! You… are… into girls too! I’m beginning to like you man!” Brand told the monk. “Don’t worry, if ever she has another hot friend, I’ll tell you right away!”

“Now, let’s eat! Go on, help yourself. My treat!” he bragged then dug into the food.

The table was filled with an assortment of delicacies. A hot vegetable soup simmered as Brand opened the pot. A stack of rat kebabs sat besides along with two plates of baked potatoes. A roasted pig leg in the center posed as the main dish.

Felicia’s jaw dropped at the exhibit of cuisine in front of them. For her, it was already a feast and a luxury that Amerans shouldn’t be enjoying. She would want to say a prayer of thanks for the food first before they eat but her friend had just ruined the opportunity. The priestess was worried about Brand’s behavior. She thought that he might be pushing it too much.  However, what worried her the most is the possible shortage of coins that they might encounter later.

The priestess sighed again. Slowly, she bowed her head then closed her eyes. Silently, she said a little prayer of thanks. When she opened her eyes, she took some baked potatoes and began to consume them in small parts. Bit by bit and in a gentle manner. It can be noticed that she has been well-trained in the temple to behave conservatively. But for those who’s unaware of her profession, they might conclude that the priestess is a highborn. On the other hand, the fighter munched his in bulk. Huge chunks of it fell into his wide and watery mouth, like a wild animal that had skipped its meals for days.

“Ah wu ter joo du etais la-er,” he said with a full-filled mouth then swallowed all of it at once, “in a less crowded place.”

He looked around with suspicious eyes then leaned again close to the monk, “I don’t want any pain in the ass. This plan of mine should be kept between us.”

“Well,” Brand said aloud as he backed away from the monk. He tore the meaty part of the roasted pig leg then continued, “You haven’t told us your names yet, and what can you do.”

“Unlike brother bard over there,” he pointed at Coren and waved his oily hand while nodding his head with the beat of the near ending song, “Felicia doesn’t like cads.”

Brand chomped the meat but felt it was lacking. He took two baked potatoes and pushed them inside making his cheeks look like it's going to explode anytime sooner. He turned to the priestess and spoke. Bits of food spewed out of his mouth and landed on the priestess' face, “Wight Fewicia?”

“Where are your manners Brand!” the disgusted priestess spat, wiping the food off her face.

“Forgive us,” Felicia said as she tried to get back in control. She went back to eating and finished the remaining baked potatoes and a stick of kebab.

The bard’s song has ended. Felicia smiled at Coren and said, “Thank you, it was beautiful song.”

“And you have a beautiful voice too,” she added. She asked him if he had eaten already and offered the remaining food on the table in which to her surprise was almost gone. The priestess’ face reddened, embarrassed at the bard but can’t do anymore about it.

“We plan to stay here,” she said nervously. “You are all invited to visit us in our room tonight so we could orient you more about it.”

Seeing the priestess showered with spittle and tiny food parts, Jin lamented not having his umbrella with him. He had already taken a bit of everything in his plate but seeing the food dimished at this rate was still a surprise. He liked hearty people and he could tell that they would get along fine. Coren's song was a delight too, he raised his cup to him and gulped down some ale. A proper introduction then.

"And I am Jin, martial artist of the Gei style. I am usually employed to teach people or act as a bodyguard but as of lately work opportunities have gotten fewer. It is good that you arrived when you did. And certainly I'll take you up on your invitation, I'd like to know more."
