At Hugh’s (Hugh, Andrew, Kadon & Philip)
Through not intended as being canon, the introductions to peoples of Westburg, and their interactions have now become part of the respective character’s backstory.
A caravan arrives in the stockyard opposite the market of Westburg. Its crew weary from the long winding road from Shaooshtan far in the south. They are given their pay and “shore leave”. Minx, and Islo (once thought to be brother, and sister) were keen to spend their money on new studded leather armour, and so made the acquaintance of Malik the tanner. Unfortunately there is not a high demand for Mitegaran sized goods, but offered to tailor some Halfling armour to suit.
Emilia (under the name Alisia) enquired about getting a set of half-plate armour, or at least a breastplate, but was informed the iron/steel worker was on the far side of the market. With the indentured labourer, Cain left in her care the group headed deeper into Westburg at Cain’s request to find a temple. On the way there they heard the sound of someone being beaten in an alley. It turned out to be Captain Blackhelm, “administering the King’s justice” on an elf, a severe beating, as it was apparently only a first offence. Blackhelm seemed keen for Cain to interfere in his duties, so he could show the upstart what a third offence looked like first hand. Suspicions are the second offence collar around Cain’s neck suddenly felt ten times heavier.
The “off duty” caravan crew made their way further East into the city toward the Temple of the Fallen, which they had spied from the market. At the temple Said a prayer and left a gold coin donation, then departed feeling centred.
With evening approaching, the crew head back to the market. Alisia spots a Bowyer/Fletcher, Savanna, an elven maiden with long, flowing silver hair. Alisia enquired about arrows, but Savanna first wished to inspect Alisia’s bow, she noted its superior construction, and proceeded to give the crew a good deal on some equally quality arrows.
With the market closing, they retired to the Laden Scow. The crew got rooms for the night and returned to the common room for drinks and dinner. Although the rest were happy to settle in for the night, the Mitegaran seemed to want to look for trouble. They overheard what appeared to be plans for a burglary. By the time the crew were coming to a decision on what to do the conspirators had began departing.
The crew quickly reorganised themselves to tail the last criminal. Although this thief was trying his best to travel unnoticed, the keen eyes of the Mitegaran caught he every move. When he duck into an alley, and joined some shadowy figures, talking in hushed tones, the crew were left with 2 choices, try to fine someone from the King’s Order, or take matters into their own hands.
- Malik Tanner, male human leatherworker.
- Blackhelm, male dwarven Captain of the King’s Order, and his two 9’ tall living statue companions.
- Savanna, female elven bowyer/fletcher.
- Prescott and Violet, male and female human innkeepers.
- Laden Scow (inn), north of the west (dock) gates, just on the edge of the market square.
- Temple of the Fallen.
