Outside Myfflin's Mystic Marvels
Alkanar's left eyebrow raises in surprise when Silhouette starts speaking his own tongue. She speaks Wolfen? I did not expect that. He then responds in kind. "It is indeed quite a rude thing to say when first meeting someone." He says with a shake of his head. "Though isn't your last remark as violent as his is crass?" He counters.Silhouette wrote: ↑Sat Nov 12, 2022 4:32 pm Silhouette seems to consider saying something to Alwin and the giant before turning it to Alkanar rather than to the troll’s company as she plays off the bawdy humor to say in Wolfen for the first time,”I do not like them, saying I get it in the end? I would show them their asses, but looks like these two already found them. Head’s so far up their backsides they’ve gone and popped right back out the shoulders again.” Silhouette chuckles with a rolling sound modified by the Wolfen language style,”Too bad they are different sizes, we might have had the first two wheels to a horse cart. Maybe wheelbarrows, one for each crate?”
Alwin wrote: ↑Thu Nov 10, 2022 1:36 pm Alwin stands and looks up to the sky, "I think I may need to speak to Master Myfflin as well. Now seems as good a time as any to check the progress anyway. I need to ask him a question about registration too." Alwin walks toward the Wolfen and holds his hand out in greeting, "So, is this your pack? Pretty motley crew you have assembled here."
Alkanar wrote: ↑Thu Nov 10, 2022 7:46 pm Alkanar readily takes Alwin's offered hand. "I am Alkanar. And no, Wolfen do not have packs like wolves, unless you want to label everything similar to a nuclear family as a pack. I was just lucky enough to stumble upon some companions that do not hold to the prejudice that is pervasive in these lands." He glances over at Goram. "Judging by your choice of companion you are also not someone to judge a book by its cover."
When Alwin heads towards the shop Alkanar follows but looks back at his group to see if they are also following.
Alkanar does not respond to Alwin, because he does not have an answer. That is a good question. Alkanar thinks to himself. Trask seemed to be the one primarily making decisions, but he went his own way. Of those left, Silhouette seems to be the one taking charge. But if our last meeting with Master Natrap is any indicator, she also seems to have a tendency to act without thinking...Alwin wrote: ↑Fri Nov 11, 2022 7:11 am Alwin smiles at the comment, "Some books don't even have covers." After a short chuckle wondering if the wolfen would understand the reference he continues, "If you are not the leader, then who directs the group? The ogre? Surely not the Dwarf?" His inquisitive tone is easy to pickup.
He then realizes that Alwin never even proposed Sil as the leader and can't help a small smile. Alwin and Silhouette may not be judging me, but they sure are judging each other. Ironic considering our location.
Inside Myfflin's Mystic Marvels
It was actually my second day. He thinks to himself but does not find it important enough to correct. I had never even considered that it could be the same group, but that does make the possibility of a rogue mage more explainable. They were here for the package but got incensed when they saw a Wolfen walking about. Though I am curious how she plans to counter anything similar in the future. I think a drug can be safely ruled out, it would have definitely had after-effects after that long. But it must have been a very potent spell. It lasted much longer than most magic I am aware of and had no after-effects that I could find. Hmm... Protection Wards would work, but they only last ten minutes, and the effect last time was so sudden. The ward would have to be triggered by magic sleep.Silhouette wrote: ↑Sat Nov 12, 2022 4:32 pm Adding to the Wolfen Diabolist’s words of apology she says in Elven, her best language for groveling to the learned,”Master Natrap, I am regretful for our delay. I would have sent a magic pigeon under normal circumstances, though whatever transpired, we only just awoke and headed here immediately.” Pausing in case the Alchemist has words of recrimination she listens before adding as she goes inside his office for privacy and then gives possible reason for the delay,“My companion Alkanar was ambushed on his entrance to the city days ago with a sleep spell as well. I anticipate the same mage and group were involved with delaying us with intent to ambush us for your delivery.” Silhouette adds as well,"I am already creating a plan to counter any such interference. I expect an ambush would happen just as our trip begins so they may adjust with our chosen path."
