She steps forward, "Who's asking?"
Scout, Tinkerer, and Cartographer
This surprises the young Scout as she had just left headquarters not that long ago. Perhaps they knew this and sought to catch up with her since she was in the area.
"Their death is speculation, correct? I've not read, or heard rumor, of any hard evidence." Horace knows the training we've all graduated from; he knows she is calculating probability and contingencies for such a dangerous and uncertain undertaking.tumblingdice wrote: ↑Tue Jun 22, 2021 8:20 pmAssuming no one stops him, Horace takes a seat. We need your services for an assignment, Slip. As you may have heard Rogahn and Zelligar died in what appears to be their last battle against the Reavers of the Frost Isles to the north. It is sad news for the Kingdom of Yarrik, but it is also an opportunity for us, and a call to action.
Obviously nervous, she fires off an array of questions, "What can you tell us of the Reavers, and their numbers?" and before Horace can answer, "How great is their head start?"tumblingdice wrote: ↑Tue Jun 22, 2021 8:20 pmHorace continues. Rogahn and Zelligar never held any formal titles within our lands, so the crown has no interest in claiming their fortress. But there are others who might. At this moment we suspect a band of Reavers are making their way to our shores, looking to plunder their hideout. We also suspect our neighbors to the east would be interested in what wealth could be gained from its depths. In any case, The Compass would love a map of the fortress. And if we could stop that treasure from falling into enemy hands, then we can also be of service to our King.
The young woman is no fool. Undertaking this task on her own would likely end in certain death. Afraid to say anything, she plays along like this group of fellows are part of her band. As Horace moves to an unoccupied table for his map scroll, she hooks his arm with hers and pivots him to Fauk's table!tumblingdice wrote: ↑Tue Jun 22, 2021 8:20 pmHorace pulls a scroll out from the case, then unrolls it on the table. You can see that it's a map. Our sources tell us the fortress is in the wooded hills northwest of the village of Tenney Hollow, in the Barony of Bluehill to the North. Your assignment is to provide The Compass with a detailed map of the interior. You can hire whomever you trust for assistance, and keep any treasure you find. But the map is ours. What say you?
