"HAAAH?" clearly drunk by now Adelflæd reacted to Brand. With a slow voice she remarked. "Hrmph. If I wanted to lie with a mongrel I'd rather sleep outside at the kennels."
Slowly she got up from the bed, far more unstable than her drunkenness would have suggested. "You play around, expecting things to have no consequences. Thinking you are all that." Unsteadily getting closer to him. "You are a fool. A poison on the land. Because of you, she was here, waiting, while you were sniffing another bitch's rear."
Suddenly she tripped and fell, latching onto his shirt with both hands to keep herself from falling. With unrestricted hate seething between her teeth she drew her face right into his.
"So no. I do not fancy another child." She pulled down with all her weight and spit out the words. "Especially from a filthy mutt like you."
When the bard walked in she pushed him away. "Trash." and wobbled back to the bed.

Fink let out a long whistle.

"Well that just took a turn, eh? Much as I'm enjoying this show, I think we're here to talk business. And now that our talented string plugger is finally here," he shot Coren a suspicious look, "we can finally get to it, right?"

Jin cast a sad look at Adelflæd. He wondered if she was following the priestess on a path to redemption - if unconsciously - or was on the run for whatever reason. No doubt she had gone through some very rough times, so young too. But that's enough excitement for one evening, better let sleeping dragons lie.

"I agree with Hoodwink. At this point it's better to keep things short so that we don't end up imposing. Felicia, if you would?"

Brand let out a long yawn, ignoring Adelfæd’s emotional show. It came to his mind that he might be right about her having mental problems or, probably, just a young lady with romantic dilemma. With a crooked smile on his face he shut the door and locked it firmly. He placed his pinky finger inside his ear turning it like a screw, trying to reach something, while walking besides Felicia. It took awhile for him to finish and when he pulled it out a lump of dry wax came out attached to it. Slowly, he blew it and the lump of wax dispersed into the air. Pieces by pieces it fell onto Felicia’s hair who was oblivious, for she was looking, concerned, at the wasted blind girl.

Felicia turned to the monk but before she opened her mouth to answer his query, Brand placed his palm on her face and halted her.

“As I was saying earlier,” Brand started, “We’re going to do some treasure hunting.”

He placed his foot on the bed and leaned forward to his knee, “I have this very reliable source - a wandering priest of Amera. He told me about a treasure map, hidden inside a bandit camp, near the northern temple.”

The fighter raised his fist, pounding the air along with a subduing voice, “If we could steal that map from them then we’ll off to our road to riches!”

"You don't strike me as the covert type, sneaking about in a bandit camp would get us killed. Hoodwink over there might have better odds but he'd be risking his neck for all our sakes which is probably not his cup of tea. But I was asking the lady so humour me this one. Felicia, what are your plans? I'd like to hear them from you straight."

Jin's attention looked solely focused on the priestess' face but in the back of his mind he expected that Brand's boisterous attitude was soon going to earn him a fingerlock.

Felicia glanced at Brand whom she found smirking at the monk. She then turned her eyes to him and said, "The wandering priest said he went there to give healing services to a wounded bandit who was attacked by a bear. He overheard the bandit chief and a female bandit talking about the treasure map on the table."

"He said that the bandit chief was telling her that there were treasures there that the Borsmorthians would pay decent amount of golds."

She looked down and sighed. Then she fixed her gaze at the monk again, "I don't have any plans on how we could get the map, Jin. I am a priestess of Amera. I was trained to heal, not to steal."

Her face turned gloomy as she looked at the newcomers, "That's why we seek help. Maybe you could help us?"

"My word is my bond, I have your back. I am tempted to ask about location specifics, number of enemies and other pointless trivia but you probably don't know, do you? are saving this for a surprise. When do we set off then?"

Jin was face-palming in his mind. These guys aren't even considering that bandits talking openly about treasure maps in front of an outsider is probably an obvious trap.

“What do you mean location specifics? We haven’t been there ourselves!” Brand responded to the monk placing his other foot on the ground, leaning his back on the wall and relaxed himself.

“We need somebody who knows the terrain well. We really haven’t been that far from the southern temple,” Felicia added. She looked at each of them, distraught can be noticed in her eyes. Abruptly, she stood and rushed in front of the monk. She held his hands and said, “Please help us! If you want, you can have the larger amount of share.”

Brand was startled not because of Felicia’s offer but because of her desperateness. He left his relaxed position and stood, tensed. He grabbed Felicia on her shoulder.

“Hey, stop it,” he said in a low voice and looked at the priestess who turned to him briskly.

Brand lightly shook his head and Felicia, immediately, released Jin’s hands. Then she went back to her seat.

The night was already deep when the adventurers ended their tryst. They had agreed to meet at the edge of the town before the sun rises. Felicia was still worried that some of them might not show up. She thought that only the monk will come, for he seemed true to his words. Brand offered to guard the two girls and insisted that he’d stay outside the room. The priestess decided to give the bed to the blind girl, who seemed to be in deep sleep. She did not disturb her. Instead she slept on the floor, on the bedroll that they brought, soundly, knowing that her friend is guarding them.

Outside their room, Brand was nowhere to be found. The tavern was almost empty and silent except a creaking sound and frequent moaning can be heard on one of the rooms.

=======================

A couple of hours had passed since the adventurers started their journey. The sun was already high in the sky. Felicia was relieved that all of them came. She thanked each of them a few times along the way. Happiness was evident on her face but still, deep in her heart, she worries. Brand, on the other hand, was walking slow. He was yawning occasionally and his shoulders were slump. Felicia noticed this and approached him.

“Are you okay, Brand?” she asked, “Thank you for making us safe last night. You should’ve slept inside the room with us. Don’t push yourself too much.”

“I’m fine,” Brand answered sloppily, following another yawn. He copped his left pocket then inserted his fingers inside it then pulled a brownish paper up.

“Here,” he told Felicia, handing her the paper, “Check on which way we should go. If I’m not mistaken, there are two paths that we could take.”

He yawned again and stretched his back and shoulders, “We could go through the Gilded City or just follow the river.”

“Or…” he slowly eyed each one of the new recruits, “maybe these guys might just know a better path.”

"Hmm? I don't know any routes but I'd prefer the river myself. What better way than start our adventure with the sun on our face and the refreshing sound of the water streaming past? What about you Hoodwink?"

“I like the river route too,” Felicia concurred with Jin, smiling, “The scenery along the way is just so irresistible!”

“Huh?” Brand murmured as he set his gaze at the monk. He walked beside him then placed his elbow on his shoulder. “A master of Gei style thing you said? Can’t believe you lack knowledge about the terrain. I had an impression that you travel a lot. Guess I was wrong.”

“Well, anyways,” he followed, “I myself doesn’t know much about it too. Never been this far from the southern temple. My route is usually from the temple to Cesterfield then back. I used to be the errand boy of the priests and priestesses. Buying food stocks and other materials.”

“Hmm… now that we’re talking about it, I think I’m missing the temple,” Brand continued, “There’s a lot of pretty priestess there.”

He turned to Felicia and set his eyes at her for a while, “Felicia is one of them pretty. Too bad she isn’t interested with intimacy. Stupid temple rule of being celibate. They don’t even know what they’re missing!”

“But… tell you what. Since you said you like girls before, I can introduce you to one of the priestesses when we get back.”

He moved closer to Jin and whispered, “This is a secret. Don’t tell Felicia.”

He took a quick glance at her before speaking, “I banged one of the priestesses, she’s damn hot! That booty!”

“Can’t believe my charms worked there, haha!” Brand bragged at Jin, his tone turned loud, almost shouting.

“Well anyways, I don’t care which way we take. As long as it's the easiest. I don’t want any problems along the road.”

Fink was eyeing Coren ever since they left Cesterfield. He clearly did not trust the bard and wouldn't let him out of his sight. He came closer to the rest of the group.

"River is fine. The Gilded City is always crowded, right? Better steer clear of unwanted attention, I say."

Jin's eyes casually rolled back. "You're a curious guy Brand."

He stretched his arms upwards and yawned.

"This is too uneventful though, I wish something would happen.."

@All

Everybody was silent for a very long time as the group trekked the riverside. The professional problem-solver had his eyes stuck on the bard, who surprisingly never made a sound, for hours. The blind girl seemed to become a mute. The fighter and the monk had gibberish chit-chat for a while until the monk began complaining on nothing was happening that totally killed the pace. The priestess stayed quiet too. The surroundings had stole her consciousness. Slight smile appeared on her face whenever an object rouse her interest. But, despite of the gladness in her face, her heart was heavy and her mind, in deep thought.

Brand noticed the gloom his friend had been hiding. Slowly, it started to take over him until he felt the same. He knew what she has been thinking, and most of all what she has been feeling. But the fighter do not want to fill his mind with burdensome thoughts. He grunted and scanned the area. On his right side, he spotted an array of bushes sitting beside the river. It stretched for a mile. Some were high and the others were low. But all of them are noticeably thick. He left the group and went for it, hoping to find a twig. Brand likes to chew on them. A twig make him feel relaxed and forget things that he doesn’t want to tire his mind. He bent over and looked closer, touching each of his prospect, trying to get a feel.

The group were steps away from him when he found one. Carefully, with both hands, he snapped off the slender dried sprig from the plant. He would have continued smiling but a peculiar sight caught his naive eyes.

Two shiny black objects met the fighter’s gaze. White gritting teeth appeared below them. A low growl materialized from it. Swiftly, the creature leaped from the bushes towards Brand. Its long thick dark grey fur weaved with the air. Thick saliva dripped and splashed from its gnashing jaw.

((Roll 1))

Unthinking, Brand pushed himself backwards and rolled counter-clockwise while in the air, away from the attacking wolf. He fell down on his shoulder and rolled closer to the group. Felicia, after hearing the wolf, immediately looked behind.  The priestess gasped, shocked, seeing that her friend was lying on the ground. Panic took over her body and froze her.  The bushes moved once again. Four more wolves came out. Each of them snarling fiercely as they close in to the unwary travellers.

Adelflæd moved close to Felicia. She could easily react to movement from all directions due to not relying on sight and her long staff allowed her a good reach to smash anything trying to get close.
She kicked the person lazing on the ground.
"Get up."

Coren drew his langseax and assumed a defensive position. he positioned his left arm in such a way that if a wolf would pounce to bite him, it would hit his armored forearm, and thus Coren could lift the beast in the air and finish it off with a stab to it's chest.

'Well, I asked for it.' Jin muttered as he pulled a dart from his belt and threw it at the closest wolf's head. *roll 8* He could not help but grimace at the miss, it felt like he could not hit anything since the beginning of the RP festival.

'Does anyone have fire spells?'

Fink took a couple of steps back to avoid attack and tried to assess the situation. Jin and Coren were quick to react, clearly not new to combat. Felicia seemed shocked and surprised, but the blind girl stepped up to help her. That left Brand still reeling from the experience, seemingly defenseless on the ground. Fink drew one of his daggers and threw at the wolf that closed in on on Brand (Wolf #1).

Fink's dagger flew true and even though the wolf tried to avoid the attack, it was hit hard enough to go down.

Jin threw his dart at another wolf, but missed giving the animal the opportunity to attack. Luckily he was able to move just in time to avoid the beast's jaws snapping on his throwing arm.

A third wolf jumped at Coren, biting on his arm. The leather on the arm held the teeth at bay, but as Coren raised the animal into the air to stab him, its flailing hind legs clawed him hard above the knees. Still, the langseax pierced the wolf and with a last whimper it slid off the bard's arm and slumped to the ground.

A fourth wolf tried to attack Brand, but the fighter pumped on fear and adrenaline rolled out of the way just in time.

Finally, the last wolf jumped for the ladies. It pounced on Adel, taking the small girl down to the ground, but a well placed hit with a quarterstaff to the side of its head, rendered the beast unconscious.

Following a sideways roll, Jin exhaled in relief.

Yikes, that trap of teeth almost snapped shut on my hand. But Brand looks in trouble so here goes.

One, two steps, sideways kick.. and miss! *roll 6*

"Oh for the love of.."

Jin braced for a painful retaliation, wondering what he had done to deserve this constant string of misses and to which God he should start praying to make it stop. In the back of his mind he was really hoping someone would have his back against the other wolf.
