Event Log


[Thieves' Guild]
Darkness looms in this damp open cavern, staved off only by a few waning torches. Several dark wood benches have been placed tight against the walls and you smile inwardly at the thought of the guild members protecting their backs in this manner. The sound of running water echoing in the distance is the only decoration that marks this subterranean hall. You also see a sturdy oaken coffer, a small stand with a guild register on it and a large notice tacked to the wall.
Also in the room: Vyrix, Alacron who is seated, Daranjem, Bryarmote, Kinder who is seated, Keidas who is seated, Sabatage, Dermone who is seated, Veleda, Carnwenan who is seated, Edwidge who is seated, Coretan who is seated, Scorpionn who is seated, Entenous, Mosmen who is seated, Xemxo who is seated, Vyze who is seated, Phrixus, Horrorr who is seated, Arravix who is seated, Kalag who is seated.

Kalag says, "You are the clerk who maintains the records."

Edwidge blinks.

Kalag says, "I wish a few...lost."

Edwidge says, "No, I don't think so."
Edwidge shakes his head.

Kalag asks, "A princely sum, is it not?"

Edwidge says, "I be asking 15 platinum coins to do the job. Hazard pay if ya will. Them guards aren't the type to treat a man well if they don't like what he's been doing."

Edwidge says, "I say 12."

Kalag asks, "You wish 12?"
Kalag peers quizzically at Edwidge.
Kalag frowns.

Edwidge says, "12 it is."
Edwidge nods to Kalag.

Kalag says, "I shall offer 10. But it shall be for all three provinces."

Edwidge says, "All right then, I'll do it for 10 plat, but not a copper less. Guess they don't call ya the Master of Thieves for nothing, hey Kalag?""
Edwidge gives Kalag a thin smile.
Edwidge says, "I expect it in advance though."

Kalag says, "Very well."

Edwidge says, "Dealing with thieves and all, gotta make sure I get what's mine."

Edwidge mumbles something under his breath.

Kalag says, "I am short of the amount. I need money, fellows."

A large group made a bank run at this point, and upon returning...

* Uslaya was just struck down! 

[Thieves' Guild, Cavern Hall]
Darkness looms in this damp open cavern, staved off only by a few waning torches. Several dark wood benches have been placed tight against the walls and you smile inwardly at the thought of the guild members protecting their backs in this manner.

Kalag says, "Now we shall wait, and see. I expect he will tell us in several hours."

Edwidge stumbles back into the room.
Edwidge says, "Senseless silly thieves."
Edwidge says, "Drag a man off in the middle of his business.'"

Kalag asks, "Edwidge, you have not left yet?"
Kalag says, "I paid you, you silly man."

Edwidge asks, "Dermone here was saying something about showing me out?"

Kalag says, "Go take care of your business."

Edwidge joins Dermone's group.
Edwidge says, "That I'll do Master Thief."

Dermone's group went through a narrow gap.
[The Crossing, Dodgers' Row]
Feet tread the cobbled streets here, booted feet, sandaled feet, armored feet, rag-wrapped feet, all thumping against the pavement and reverberating off the closely-spaced, rundown buildings. In the slimy gutter, along the west curb, a pile of dry straw has been heaped up against a sewer grating. You also see a rickety wooden fence.
Also here: Edwidge, Dermone
Obvious paths: north, south.

Edwidge rubs his nose nervously.
Edwidge says, "You tell your master, it'll be a bit."

Not long afterward, in the main cavern...
[Thieves' Guild, Cavern Hall]'
Darkness looms in this damp open cavern, staved off only by a few waning torches. Several dark wood benches have been placed tight against the walls and you smile inwardly at the thought of the guild members protecting their backs in this manner.

Kalag asks, "Yes?"

Edwidge says, "Covered my tracks real well, that I did, but I be thinking. This here scroll is worth more than that measly 10 plats ya thought ya'd pawn me off with."

Kalag raises an eyebrow.

Carnwenan says, "Edwidge, you were paid in full."

Edwidge says, "Got a goodly bit of fines here, maybe worth something to everyone onthe list I'd say. Worth something to the judge too."

Kalag asks, "And just what is it you are saying?"
Kalag leans back.

Edwidge wipes his nose on the cuff of his sleeve.
Edwidge says, "Yes, I imagine the judge be real happy to see it, should I give it to him."
Edwidge whistles tunelessly.
Edwidge says, "Ain't saying I will of course, not if you have, oh, 'bout 50 plats to buy it from me. I think that's fair now. "

Kalag says, "The price was 10 platinum coins, and generous at that."

Edwidge smirks.

Kalag gets a miniature black crossbow from inside his steel-toed boots.
Kalag appears to be aiming at Edwidge with his black crossbow.
