"I'm not completely sure, Hallister, but I think Amdelise spoke for the town. She seemed to have a good amount of sway with the town." Miagnik said from behind the Dwarf.
"Maybe we should look into sealing up that passage underground somehow. No one should be going back there anymore."
He then wanders off around town, thinking over the amount of wealth he has attained and realized that he isn't sure what to do with it exactly.
He had heard of not openly spoken of markets where one could get a hold of any number of dangerous objects not normally allowed by the knights and decided that some silvered bolts made of good iron would be worth looking into.
My magic is strong enough that I shouldn't need much in the way of weapons. I wonder if there is anyone who can train me to become stronger?
Miagnik is going to look around town for some silvered crossbow bolts, look into getting a Masterwork spear, oversee and pay for sealing up the Lusson's tunnel because he really doesn't want anyone going down below and is asking around for anyone who might be able to train up some hit points. He is also offering 20 silver to aid in finding the "black market" goods.
Diplomacy: 1d20 + 2 + 2 ⇒ (1) + 2 + 2 = 5
Well... he is a Goblin, who has burned down some buildings in the past and is fairly distinct, and apparently still a little shaken about the whole Eye thing. Clearly not his best day.
"Miagnik, do you really think just sealing this tunnel is going to do anything if someone with an actual lust for power catches wind of what is down there? Depending on what spells the mag eof this town knows I might be able to seal up the tunnel with stone as a stop-gap measure. I know clerics and druidic faiths have a spell to manipulate earth and stone, perhaps windel could pray for such and we could seal the tunnel with a selective collapse?" Stephaine says as she glances to the ruined structure of the mansion.
"We may need to go back down there, see if the Lusson's left any journals. The eye called them its Jailers even if it won their souls eventually. That should mean they had a method to transport it this far, and an understanding of how it is bound would mean we could try to move it some place less likely to be found."
"Stephanie... even if we seal it your way someone determined enough to gain power could dig it up again using the very methods you described. But for now every safety measure you can imagine to keep unfortunate or foolhardy folk from making contact from that thing is a good idea."
He followed her glance, a worried expression crossing his face.
"I've thought on what that eye told us. It's not as uncaring as it claims. I just can't believe anything alive, no matter how powerful, is that unmoved by the events surrounding it. If it is powered by apathy as it said, then why bother with the Lussons souls at all? To gain more power it supposedly doesn't need? To lull us into a false sense of security regarding it? I don't know."
He shook his head.
"Besides even if we moved it, or found out how and in what interpretation it considered the Lussons it's jailers, do you really want to move it. What if all you accomplish is drawing it's gaze down upon you? Where would you put it even? A cave... some vault guarded by a group like the one Hallister and I belong to.... the capital city... or maybe even the Palace of the Vampire Queen?"
"A particularly devoted miner with a pick axe could break that defense. The best defense for such an object is ignorance to prevent people from seeking it in the first place, so the fewer people we tell of it the better."
Stephanie sighs as she considers the newly added obstacle.
"I won't guess the eye's motives, if it has any, as to the rest would you prefer we leave it here? I can't imagine the town won't talk about such an event more so if we ask them not to."
Day 10, 8:00am (turn 49)It is morning. Location – Three Willows
As Rownig is leaving the wizard’s company, before heading to find tobacco, he glances over his shoulder and sees the older wizard, holding the small sack open and staring wide eyed at the coins.
Hallister runs into Windel and Rownig on the street and asks them if they know who is in charge, but before the two dwarves can answer, Miagnik appears on the scene, having heard Hall’s question, he recommends that Hallister seek out the priestess.
Amdelisse is easily found in a small chapel, a temple dedicated to Denari. She informs Hallister that the village of Three Willows has no proper Mayor, and most of the regular business is carried out on behalf of Sir Henri Vessocho, through a local retainer who was given the title of Shire Reeve. The Shire Reeve’s name is Elisk Gessal, and he can be found at the southern end of the town road, at a small watch tower. She tells Hallister that Elisk is a fair minded dwarf, who follows Sir Vessocho’s instructions to the letter.
It will take three days to finish the weapons, that Rownig and Windel have asked for
Stephanie notices the books on the table and give a glance to their covers, seeing minor indicators to the fact. She opens them nd needs to push her jaw back into the closes position.
"that.. is a lot of spells."
Stephaine glances about with the collection of books blocking much of her face.
"I'll be back... uh at some point. need to see what are in these. study them for clues and such."
Day 10, 10:00am (turn 61)It is morning. Location – Three Willows
The priestess takes a seat when Hallister asks her to sit down. He demeanor is casual, but when Hallister mentions the Lakoradak, she flinches, looks away nervously, and then turns back with a smile and says
