Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

And our inability to work out what we've got ourselves stuck with continues unabated :)

"I've no real idea, Jareen. I've never seen or heard of anything like it."

Honesty seems the best policy here.

She greets Safier serenely, and hopes the newcomer can help more with the identification of the mystery object.

Irivis plods firmly towards the nearest bar, assuming that everyone else will follow when she says "drinks are on me".

Once there, she offers to help out with anything the less literate are having problems with.

"And you can tell me what you've found or think you've found while you're about it. Followed by what you plan to do with it now you've found it. Jareen, your contacts need to be contacted I suppose, but what then?"

Arcana check on whatever is nearest and needs checking:
1d20 + 9 ⇒ (6) + 9 = 15
Well, that's not helpful.

"Maybe he's learned him some manners."

One eyebrow quirks in disbelief.

Observing the kreen, Irivis fixes him with a long stare and answers seriously.

"My leg isn't wonderful," she concedes, "but I have adapted and I have other talents, useful to the clutch."

Shaking her head and tutting sadly, she turns to the half-elf.

"Arakan, you're slipping. A week away and your invective level drops. We'll have to work on that."


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

This time Irivis doesn't hide her amusement. More seriously she turns to Jareen.

"Whatever you found, I'm certain we don't want the whole of Alaturk to know about it and there's nothing like bar snacks and bad booze to hide conversation."


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

Irivis might be looking amused under her veil, but it's hard to tell for sure.

"Indeed."


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

Irivis looks consideringly over the top of her veil.

"Good to hear. I'm Irivis. I limp along and I am not a badass. I am a nagbag - it's an undervalued role."


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

"It's always nice to know Arakan hasn't lost his touch.

"Since they seem to have not only survived by picked up some new companions, I can guess that the mission is accomplished. Shall we find a bar and talk? This is a disgusting place and it's full of ears."


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

"Ex-gladiator", sniffs Irivis. "Unless you've acquired another body somewhere."

"I can see you've joined some friends of mine. Are you planning to kill either of them?"


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

Furio is a total stranger to Irivis. She knows only Jareen and Arakan.


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

Not for the first time, Irivis spends the morning considering her options. Deciding she would be unable to keep pace with Calla and Gorad (and a little reluctant to return to Tyr), she ended up remaining in Alaturk.

Resting her maimed leg was necessary but once she's recovered enough, she wanders the streets quietly, looking and listening for any clues about her old companions' mysterious employers.

Streetwise 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (5) + 10 = 15

Distracted by the general bustle of the town, she doesn't learn much, returning each evening to the dubious shelter of the flophouse.


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

She's ready to go. I'm guessing she hasn't picked up any nifty kit since she's been away so I left her with what she had.


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

Irivis takes the drink and ignores the taste in favour of taking the warmth and the kick. Probably better not to think about the ingredients.

"Supplies. Dying of starvation or thirst helps nobody."

1d20 + 4 ⇒ (8) + 4 = 12 - Diplomacy aid


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

Irivis listens as Jareen uncharacteristically engages in negotiations. He has, she notes, a strong practical streak.

It's been a hellacious week. Up to my neck in marking and exams and nativity plays and such like fun and games.


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

1d20 + 8 ⇒ (9) + 8 = 17 - Arcana

Irivis displays an instinct for self-preservation and does not put up her hand to say "I know, sir." She is, however, aware of such orbs and winces at the thought of them.


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

Irivis suppresses a genuine wince as she lets Calla help her up. "I may have overcooked it a little," she murmurs.

Upstairs, she watches and waits, unsurprised that Jareen is now the centre of attention. Clearly the old coot has made some connections in his time and been in a powerful enough position to do so.


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

Downstairs:
"You can help me then. My leg's not what it was." Irivis would much rather keen an eye on Arakan than not.


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

"They're not crawling up your legs."


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

"It's the beetles walking under my feet, they're crawling up my legs," wails Irivis pathetically. She swats at imaginary insects.


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

Irivis gasps and clutches at her leg as Arakan disappears, hoping that her actions will mask his abrupt disappearance.

1d20 + 10 ⇒ (17) + 10 = 27 - Bluff.


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

"Eavesdropping seems to be in order," murmurs Irivis. "Which, by the way, I'm not good at. Distractions I can manage. Probably."

High Bluff.


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

"Anyone want to order some more nameless meat nibbles?" asks Irivis casually as she stands to head casually into the inn.


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

"It's a compliment, Arakan. We trust your tricky, twisted abilities to find things out," explains Irivis patiently.


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

"And that is extremely interesting, isn't it? In a "why do I think we're going to get mixed up in this whether we want to or not?" sort of way."


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

"I think we let Arakan work some more eyebrow magic. I'm not the best person to be talking about Kalak."

Unless someone has filled Irivis in, she's (a) clueless and (b) won't be at all keen to have anything to do with Kalak, dead or alive.


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

"City life. Not much safer than the desert really."


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

"Alcohol. Lots of it. And bread."

Irivis sits with relief, enormously grateful to get the weight off her battered foot.


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

"Oh come on. We ate dried id fiend for a week. What's going to be worse?"


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

"How lovely."

It's not clear whether Irivis means the beggar's dental care or Jareen's failed attempts at tact.


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

And back.

Irivis rolls her eyes slightly at the beggarly ramblings.

"I hate cryptic," she mutters quietly.

Any idea what or where the street of white lizards might be?


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

Computer still not right. Posting as and when I can. Will be very chancy for a bit I fear.


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

If no contract, no problem with ditching him then :) Irivis was merely optimistic.


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

Irivis takes no special precautions to remain hidden. Nobody notices a lame woman.

1d20 + 1 ⇒ (15) + 1 = 16 - Insight

She senses nothing amiss with Qualli, but is not surprised when Arakan takes the man aside for a quiet word. For the time being, she considers being in a city again and decides that one of the advantages should be a good massage for her battered leg.

If Qualli is paying us to guard him all the way to Tyr, then unless we want (or need) to break the contract, then I guess we leave when he does.


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

"See, the eyebrow work does have its uses," mutters Irivis very quietly to Calla.

Nice one Arakan.


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

"I fear that will not be possible." Irivis keeps her tone reverential, but firm.

"There are matters which require His Lordship's attention. It is vital that they are not betrayed by your august presence. It is not permitted to say more."

1d20 + 10 ⇒ (8) + 10 = 18 - Bluff


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

Irivis looks demure behind her mask and nods at the soldier.

"We saw the lights and it seems to have stirred things up among the silt runners, so you might want to watch yourselves."

Back. Rebuilding, but back.


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

"None that I know of," shrugs Irivis, "but you're paying us. If you want us to ambush, we need to get organised."


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

1d20 + 3 ⇒ (9) + 3 = 12 - Perception

Irivis spots the cloud caused by approaching somethings, but is clueless beyond that.

"What is your usual policy?" she asks Qualli.


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

Hopefully Arakan remembers to fill Irivis in on the tarradiddles he spun on her behalf :)


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

"Such a kind offer, but I'd hate to interrupt your progress by forcing you back into uncharacteristic behaviour."


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

"Nowhere is safe, Jareen. Nowhere. Everything has an underside and it's always seedy. The trick is to survive."


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

Before turning her attention to Jareen.

Irivis watches and perhaps understands more of Arakan's feelings than she's ready to reveal. Her half glance at him as she heads to her watch post is verging on the sympathetic. Or as close to such an emotion as she's prepared to allow herself.

With Jareen.

"Reconciled. To working. To us. To survival. Athas is harsh enough everywhere, but you are a very long way from where you belong. Further than most of us, I think."


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

Amused at Calla's partnering of Arakan and Gorad, Irivis takes equally careful note of Jareen's behaviour.

As she finds a good spot to look out into the night, it is easy to open conversation.

"Are you reconciled then, Jareen?"


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

Returned

Irivis watches Qualli carefully throughout the day, trying to learn any familiar pattens he may have so she can more readily spot any differences in behaviour. For the most part she relies on her own inner strength to deal with the familiar sun. As the company draw to a halt, she looks at the stones suggested as a campsite.

"A convenient marker for bandits," she mutters under her breath to her close companions.


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

"We'll just have to make sure we're worth too much to him then. Sounds normal to me."

Irivis adjusts her new mask.

"I agree with Calla. Dawn and dusk travel."

On horrible laptop with terrible connection so may be chancy until return from Brighton on Saturday.


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

Irivis commandeers a filter mask and lurks behind it, refraining from making any comment on Arakan's usefulness.


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

Yup.


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

"Tyr."

Irivis shrugs. "It's my home. Or was. I can show you the way around."


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

Can we find survival days and a filter mask among the stuff Grak offered us?


Female Human Warlock 4 (Sorcerer King, Wildling) HP 46/46

"Much more like it."
