Summary

  • Praxopius arrives on an Estorian ship visibly carrying a dozen pylons on its deck. Sitting in in a crude wheeled chair, he's guided around by a scar-faced giantman who he later calls Snout, and introduces himself as Praxopius Fortney--or, to those of the Landing, simply Prax.
  • Among others greeting him, Maylan offers him a gift of a belt of thrak hides and gloves with a design of the warrior, the Raging Thrak.
  • As others ask questions both at the dock and later inside Moot Hall, Prax explains about himself that:
    • There were a few krolvin sightings on his way, but since he was prepared, the trip was uneventful.
    • He was born in the Landing.
    • He hasn't been home since shortly after the War of Shadows.
    • He's never met Lord Breshon face to face, but they've been able to connect.
    • His parents are "not here" any longer.
    • He tries to avoid eating chocolate.
  • Praxopius hopes to meet with Breshon within the week and has been told he'll host a dinner soon. He intends to stay in the Landing for the night, but also says Breshon offered accommodations; Magister Raelee says she can find a room at the outpost if need be.

Log

Praxopius Docks

[Wehnimer's, Land's End Rd.]

Vigilant night guardsmen scrutinize the citizens and travelers arriving and departing through the wide gates spanning the land route into Wehnimer's Landing. The cluttered streets of the city to the south are a far cry from the deceptively calm expanse of the wilds of Elanith outside. Two daunting towers survey the countryside and protect the town, flanking the road to the east and west. You also see a large wooden barrel and the town gates.

Lightning flashes in the distance skies as the dark outline of a large ship can be seen in the distance, rising and falling on the waves of Darkstone Bay.

[travel time]

[Wehnimer's, North Dock]

The dock's planks are dull and weathered from the salt spray of many seasons. Northward beyond the massive sea gates, a flock of ice geese passes, silhouetted against the sky over the dark blue waters of Darkstone Bay. The hulk of a derelict coastal sailer is tethered to the end of the pier. You also see a stack of empty crates, the dark waters of Darkstone Bay and a black imperial wagon with a glowing blue-white pylon on it.

[note: rather lengthy delays between monsterbold notices of the ship arriving; imagine thousands of lines and lots of fun and interesting conversation cut out]

As the storm rages on, the large ship comes further into view, veering towards the direction of Wehnimer's Landing. Violently flapping in the winds of the storm is a crest with a white horse clenching a black rose in its teeth on a field of blue.

Xorus says, "Estorian."

The imperial ship with the Estorian flag comes closer into view, and through the murk of night and the falling rain, the deck of the ship can be seen. Glistening from the downpour and moonlight, a dozen blue-white pylons can be seen upon the vessel's massive deck.

As the ship nears the sea gate and north dock of Wehnimer's Landing, the pylons upon the deck begin to slowly swivel inward, tilting down and pointing away from the sea and town. The ship continues to draw closer to the north dock.

A large imperial ship smoothly glides up to the north dock.

Lornieh says, ".... an hour later....."

Lornieh grumbles.

Lornieh is buffeted by the wind and knocked to the ground!

Lornieh chuckles.

Lornieh stands up.


Homecoming

Upon the deck of the ship appears some armored men in blue and grey armor, and some other men in grey attire darting about moving some crates and preparing some cargo.

Some of the ship's crew lower a wide gangplank, its edge hitting the dock not far off as some of the soldiers march down, standing alongside of it. A dockworker arrives, and can be heard conversing with one of the soldiers.

Emerging from a large wooden cabin upon the deck of the ship, comes a huge bald giantman with some vicious scars running along his face, and half of his nose nearly missing. Handaxes line a bandolier crossed over his muscular chest.

The giantman on the deck turns, and reaches in through the doorway of the cabin. A moment later, he turns back around, pushing a slender figure in a crude wheeled chair. The man sits upright in the weathered chair, a heavy blue blanket across his lap. His fingers lightly touch a vial of water around his neck, and the light of the moon briefly catches the gold flecks in his dark blue eyes. With one hand, he pushes a lock of silver hair away from his face and smiles.

The huge giantman walks slowly behind the wheeled chair, pushing the silver-haired man slowly down the ramp and unto the dock before the gathered crowd.

Praxopius smiles.

J>look praxo

You see Praxopius Fortney.

He appears to be a Human.

He is in the prime of life. He has large gold-speckled dark blue eyes, tanned skin, and chin-length pale silver hair.

He wears a loose grey cotton shirt with the sleeves rolled up and the collar open slightly to reveal a small vial of seawater dangling from a thin chain around his neck.

He sits in a crude wheeled chair. A heavy blue blanket is draped across his lap.

Speaking calmly to Praxopius, Cruxophim greets, "Welcome. Sir Cruxophim at your service."

Speaking to Praxopius, Irar says, "Welcome to the Landing."

Speaking to Praxopius, Maags says, "Welcomes to Wehnimer's Landing sir."

Speaking casually to Praxopius, you greet, "Good evening, there."

Speaking curiously to Praxopius, Maylan asks, "You're the alchemist fella?"

Speaking to Praxopius, Ysharra says, "This is where we stand in the rain and shout our names at you."

Cruxophim casually explains, "Knight of the Landing, as foretold by legend... five minutes ago."

The voice of Goblyn says, "Not all of us do make the shouting, Ysharra."

Cryheart says, "Good evening."

Speaking to Praxopius, Ysharra says, "We're the welcoming committee."

Speaking to Praxopius, Lylia says, "Welcome to Wehnimer's Landing. As you can hear, we are all eager to welcome you. So eager that I did not get a chance to say it first, and I am remiss for it."

Praxopius looks around, closing his eyes as he breathes in the air.

Speaking anxiously to Praxopius, Maylan says, "Dreadfully sorry about the weather."

Praxopius opens his eyes and smiles, very wide.

Ysharra says, "I didn't say everyone, Goblyn. I'll introduce you myself. Oh, I guess I just did."

Cryheart asks, "How was your trip?"

Speaking quietly to Praxopius, Pukk exclaims, "Hi I'm Cryheart, nice to meet you!"

Speaking softly to Praxopius, Balley says, "Welcome sir."

Praxopius says, "It is good to be, well, my first home."

Madmountan says, "Ahh darn, I was hoping the giantman would talk for him too."

Speaking to Praxopius, Ysharra asks, "How many homes do you have?"

Praxopius exclaims, "Hello everyone!"

Speaking earnestly to Praxopius, you say, "Welcome back. Many of us had heard about ya a bit before and how ya do some good work."

Cryheart says, "Good evening."

Felita says, "Hellos."

Speaking to Praxopius, Rycal says, "Evening."

Speaking to Praxopius, Goldstr says, "Goods ya meet ye Sir."

Praxopius says, "I am Praxopius Fortney. Those of this town, well, you can certainly call me Prax."

Speaking to Praxopius, Shinann asks, "You lived here before?"

Speaking to Praxopius, Ysharra says, "Well-met, sirrah."

Speaking to Praxopius, Irar says, "Nice to meet you, Prax."

The voice of Goblyn curiously asks, "What if we are not of this town?"


Maylan's Gift

Speaking to Praxopius, Maylan babbles, "I'm Maylan the Land Pirate and healer and tinkerer of..."

Speaking to Praxopius, Maylan says, "It's nice to meet you."

Lylia says, "Oh, I could never be so informal until I have at least bought you dinner."

Praxopius nods at Shinann.

Speaking to Praxopius, Maags exclaims, "Problies yous win all the deck races in that chair!"

Speaking to Praxopius, Maylan says, "I have prepared something for you."

Speaking to Praxopius, Bethenia says, "Welcome home then Praxopius."

Maylan offers Praxopius a pale sheet of vellum.

Maylan fidgets.

The giantman steps forward and takes the sheet of vellum from Maylan's hand.

Maylan says, "Oh."

Speaking affably to Maylan, Cruxophim inquires, "A welcoming gift?"

Maylan nods at Cruxophim.

The giantman nods and hands the vellum to Praxopius.

Praxopius nods.

Praxopius says, "You'll have to forgive Snout."

(Maylan offers her gilded gift box to the giantman.)

Maylan offers Praxopius a bow-tied gilded gift box.

Praxopius says, "He's very, very protective."

Speaking amusedly to Praxopius, Cruxophim prompts, "Snout?"

Speaking amusedly to a huge scar-faced giantman, Cruxophim ventures, "I presume?"

Gorvalt exclaims, "Snoot!"

The giantman snorts.

Maags says, "We has protectors too, it is alright."

Speaking quietly to Madmountan, Pukk says, "I thought he was your brother for a second there...looks just like you."

Madmountan says, "That's what I thought."

Speaking meekly to Praxopius, Maylan says, "There is a gift as well."

Pukk quietly says, "Gruesome twosome."

Speaking to Praxopius, Maylan says, "Once your protector here deems it safe, of course."

The giantman squints.

Praxopius says, "It's fine..."

Praxopius nods to a huge scar-faced giantman.

Praxopius accepts Maylan's gilded gift box.

Speaking to Praxopius, Maylan says, "Just a little something, nothing really."

Speaking to a huge scar-faced giantman, Ysharra says, "You and your traveling companion must have some war stories, to carry so many memories on your skin."

Praxopius tears greedily into the gilded gift box, trying to reach the contents. Ribbons and paper go flying everywhere. Praxopius smiles contentedly, admiring his present.

Praxopius indicates some dark brown gloves embellished with the warrior Raging Thrak design as a possible option.

Praxopius indicates a simply woven belt of thrak hides as a possible option.

Maylan enthusiastically nods her agreement, causing her hair to flutter around her face in a raven-sheened halo.

Praxopius says, "They are greatly appreciated Maylan. Thank you."

Speaking to Praxopius, Maylan says, "I made the belt myself. Killed some fine thraks."

Speaking to Maylan, Lylia asks, "What could be more thoughtful than a reminder of home?"

Speaking quietly to a huge scar-faced giantman, Pukk says, "Hey Mad, I hope you don't mind me standin........."

Pukk glances at a huge scar-faced giantman.

Pukk glances at Madmountan.

Praxopius says, "I do not have a gift for you yet, but I will. But thank you."

Pukk gasps.

Pukk quickly ducks behind Madmountan.

Praxopius put a simply woven belt of thrak hides in his black leather pack.

Speaking to Praxopius, Maylan says, "Your gift to us is your services."

Praxopius put some dark brown gloves embellished with the warrior Raging Thrak design in his black leather pack.

Speaking to Pukk, Madmountan says, "I"ll have to refer my empath to him."

Speaking knowingly to Praxopius, Cruxophim remarks, "What you're here for, of course."

Praxopius says, "Please. Let's not get ahead of ourselves."

Praxopius says, "I promised the Lord I would try."

Lylia says, "Indeed."

Speaking to Praxopius, Maylan says, "That is all that we ask."

Praxopius says, "I've been known to fail from time to time."

You gently say, "It happens."

Speaking quietly to Madmountan, Pukk says, "All you elves look the same to me."

Speaking to Praxopius, Maylan says, "You are not alone in that."


Ongoing Discussion

Speaking to Praxopius, Ysharra asks, "You have a little flask about your neck. Smelling salts?"

Maylan shows Praxopius her mop-fringed pegleg.

Speaking quietly to Darcena, Pukk says, "You're a cute elf though."

Speaking to Praxopius, Ysharra says, "I've heard some folks use them for sea voyages."

Praxopius says, "Sea water."

Speaking to Darcena, Lauranathalasa says, "I wish Dreaven was here."

Lylia says, "Speaking of which, I trust your voyage was a serene one, at least until tonight's tempest."

Praxopius says, "It's an Estorian habit I picked up."

Speaking to Praxopius, Ysharra asks, "You carry a little with you when you're surrounded by it?"

Speaking thoughtfully to Praxopius, Meureii says, "Some from the Isles do the same."

Speaking to Ysharra, Raelee says, "... it is Estorian custom to drink a dose in the mornings."

Speaking to Raelee, Ysharra says, "I've heard, yes."

Praxopius says, "It was as as uneventful as one could hope for. A few krolvin sightings, we are far from free from their threat."

Praxopius says, "But I came prepared, so yes, uneventful."

Speaking affably to Praxopius, Cruxophim remarks, "I also enjoy indulging the imbibement of salty fluids from time to time."

Speaking quietly to Meureii, Pukk says, "They are not talking about you."

Lylia says, "As is ever the case. I am glad you were untroubled. With a vessel like yours, it is no wonder."

Madmountan says, "I bet those pylons make some nice crispy krolvin snacks."

Speaking to Praxopius, Ysharra says, "I've heard that your province has more trouble with the Kral than most."

Praxopius says, "They will."

Praxopius nods at Madmountan.

Speaking to Praxopius, Zosopage asks, "Would you like a nice warm cup of tea?"

Praxopius says, "If you replace the tea with coffee, yes."

Praxopius nods at Zosopage.

Speaking to Praxopius, Ysharra says, "I like both, but after standing in the rain to welcome you, coffee sounds lovely."

Praxopius says, "I also would very much like to move from the docks."

Speaking to Chaoswynd, Zosopage asks, "Do you have any of that coffee on you?"

Praxopius says, "Born here or not, the..."

Praxopius sniffs.

Praxopius nods.

Praxopius chuckles.

Speaking to Zosopage, Chaoswynd says, "Not at the moment, no."

Speaking quietly to Lauranathalasa, Pukk says, "Same thing....just a little south of Icemule."

Speaking to Praxopius, Lylia says, "I hope the weather does not trouble you too greatly. We should indeed move along."

Speaking to Praxopius, Maylan says, "Good. I hate it out here."

Zosopage says, "One moment."

Speaking to Raelee, Darcena says, "I brought snacks."

Speaking to Praxopius, Ysharra says, "I'm from the north, and even I had to adjust to the storms."

Evician offers Praxopius a sparkling silver flask of coffee.

Praxopius asks, "It has been awhile since I've visited here. Do we all still form around someone to lead us?"

Speaking quietly to himself, Meureii repeats, "Fortney...Fortney..."

Lylia says, "You would be more than welcome in the lobby of Moot Hall. Large, and ah...no stairs."

Speaking to Raelee, Darcena exclaims, "In case we get hungry!"

Darcena offers Raelee some crunchy cinnamon peanuts.

Speaking to Praxopius, Ysharra says, "Heavy and predictable, sure. But I'm sure it made for a rough approach and mooring."

Speaking to Praxopius, Lylia says, "Join me, if you like."

Speaking affably to Praxopius, Cruxophim explains, "The Mayor, in this instance."

Raelee declines Darcena's offer.

Speaking to Praxopius, Maylan says, "Yes. We still have that frontier herd mentality."

Speaking to Praxopius, Evician asks, "Coffee?"

Praxopius accepts Evician's silver flask of coffee.

Speaking to Darcena, Raelee says, "I will not... get hungry."

Zosopage offers Praxopius a large mug of dark roasted coffee.

Praxopius accepts Zosopage's dark roasted coffee.

Praxopius smiles.

Praxopius says, "Thank you both."

Zosopage says, "Welcome."

Lylia says, "The lobby is spacious, and more important, dry."

Praxopius is wheeled towards Lylia.

Praxopius joins Lylia's group.

Lylia says, "Follow me."


Background Information

[travel time]

[Moot Hall, Great Lobby]

The great lobby is quite spacious, with an oak bannister wrapping around a staircase leading to the second story of Moot Hall. The wall are draped in rich tapestries framing niches that hold marble busts of local dignitaries. To the north is a double door, and to the west, a mahogany door bearing a silver plaque. A carpeted pathway leads toward the Debt Collector's Office. You also see a shining invar verlok'asha that is flying around, an old stained table with an iron bucket on it, a blackboard, a veil iron shield-shaped plaque, a large wooden chest and a large wooden chest.

Ysharra whispers to the group, "People just need to appreciate something strong and bitter."

Cruxophim whispers to the group, "You mean Madmountan?"

Speaking quietly to Ysharra, Pukk says, "I try to tell everybody that when they complain about my smell...but they don't listen."

Madmountan flexes his powerful muscles.

Dalabrac says, "Ah...much better to be inside."

Zosopage says, "Thank you."

Cruxophim whispers to the group, "I jest, he's fairly agreeably tempered."

Speaking to Madmountan, Ysharra says, "Most definitely."

Darcena offers Ysharra a large mug of steaming vanilla coffee.

Ysharra accepts Darcena's vanilla coffee.

Speaking to Darcena, Ysharra says, "Thank you."

Speaking to Ysharra, Darcena says, "You're welcome."

Praxopius nods to the giantman, and with his own hands, grabs the wheels of his chair and slowly turns them, moving himself over to a veil iron shield-shaped plaque hanging on the wall.

Speaking to Praxopius, Shinann asks, "How did you and Lord Breshon become acquainted, if I might ask?" [this is answered a bit later]

Speaking quietly to Shinann, Pukk says, "It started with a date...."

Praxopius glances at a veil iron shield-shaped plaque.

J>look plaq [note: wrong plaque, as you'll see shortly]

The plaque is tarnished, but the large, crudely engraved letters are still legible.

There appears to be something written on it.

J>read plaq

In the Common language, it reads:

Wehnimer's Landing Courtroom -- The Honorable Judge Renpaw Presiding.

Speaking to Praxopius, Ysharra asks, "Were you born here in the town, or the nearby environs?"

Praxopius says, "In town."

Speaking to Praxopius, Lylia asks, "Friend of yours?"

Praxopius nods at Ysharra.

Darcena offers Maylan a salver of rare gak steak.

Praxopius peers quizzically at Lylia.

Lylia glances at a silver plaque.

Praxopius asks, "Who?"

Speaking affably to Maylan, Darcena says, "Try that."

Praxopius says, "No no..."

Maylan accepts Darcena's rare gak steak.

Praxopius points at a veil iron shield-shaped plaque.

Lylia prompts, "Judge Renpaw."

Praxopius says, "The heroes."

Speaking to Praxopius, Ysharra says, "How long have you been gone? We may have met before."

Praxopius points at a veil iron shield-shaped plaque.

Lylia says, "Ah, you were admiring the plaque next to his..."

Praxopius says, "I have not been home since shortly after the War of Shadows."

Speaking to Maylan, Darcena says, "I saw how you were eyeing him. I know the way to a giant's heart."

>read other plaq

In the Common language, it reads:

In honor of the organizations who valiantly fight in the defense of our city and its people.

Wehnimer's Landing owes a debt of gratitude to:

The Silver Gryphons

The Drakes Vanguard

The Dreadnaught Alliance

The Order of the Azure Sun

The Northern Fury

The Drunken Defenders of the Rock

Lylia says, "Then it has been some time."

Speaking quietly to Ysharra, Pukk says, "Well you are very young."

Speaking politely to Praxopius, Cruxophim remarks, "That has been some time, yes."

Speaking to Darcena, Lauranathalasa says, "The quickest way to a giant's heart is through his back."

Speaking pleasantly to Praxopius, Cruxophim remarks, "I suppose we're all veterans of some war or another."

Speaking to Pukk, Ysharra says, "Yes. Tender and untested."

Lylia says, "Yes, I believe we are staying in the lobby for a bit. My office is upstairs..."

Praxopius says, "I have never met Lord Breshon, to answer another question..."

Praxopius says, "I do not know whom asked it. I am sorry. So many faces and questions."

Lylia diplomatically says, "Anything we wish from the office may be brought down."

Shinann says, "Oh, I guess I misunderstood. I am sorry."

Kisun says, "Woah big group."

Speaking to Cruxophim, Darcena says, "You have other methods of getting to a giant's heart."

Speaking quietly to Goblyn, Pukk whispers aloud, "Good seating! You have the perfect view from there!"

Kisun says, "I'm just here for the snacks."

Praxopius says, "I know of his plight, and we've been able to connect, and perhaps I can offer some aid."

Praxopius says, "But I have not actually met the man yet, face to face."

Shinann says, "Thank you."

Speaking to Praxopius, Ysharra says, "So you are a veteran. No end to the conflicts to get involved in, or pulled into, indeed."

Speaking to Praxopius, Maylan says, "He hosts a good dinner party. Perhaps he'll invite you for dinner."

Praxopius peers quizzically at Ysharra.

Praxopius asks, "A veteran?"

Pukk quietly says, "Maybe he needs a sacrifice....I'm sure we can sacrifice Balley."

Speaking to Maylan, Ysharra says, "I hope he has another affair, that was fun."

Speaking to Kembal, Lylia says, "How lovely to see you. We are surrounded by skilled alchemists, it seems."

Speaking to a huge scar-faced giantman, Kisun asks, "What's your story?"

Speaking curiously to Praxopius, Meureii interjects, "And your parents...they are still about the town?"

Speaking to Praxopius, Ysharra says, "I was wondering that when you arrived. About you and your traveling companion here."

Speaking gently to Pukk, Cruxophim chides, "No sacrificing Balley."

Praxopius says, "Oh I am no fighter."

Speaking to a huge scar-faced giantman, Kisun asks, "You get beat up by a kobold?"

Praxopius taps one leg, then another.

Praxopius chuckles.

Speaking quietly to Cruxophim, Pukk says, "The cute ones are always sacrificed."

Speaking to Lylia, Kembal says, "I heard that a skilled alchemist was coming from a long way."

Praxopius says, "My parents are not here any longer."

Praxopius clenches his jaw.

Speaking to Praxopius, Ysharra says, "Nor am I. That doesn't necessarily mean we don't serve."

Speaking to Darcena, Kisun says, "I just want the truth."

Speaking to Praxopius, Meureii asks, "The Shadow War?"

Praxopius takes a drink from his silver flask of coffee.

Praxopius looks slightly revitalized.

Dodeka says, "For Ronan's sake it's busy here."

Dwi heartily asks, "Anudder hubbub?"

Praxopius grins at Meureii.

The ebon-bellied sugar-glider stares at a snow white raven intently.

Speaking to a pink-eared ebon-bellied sugar-glider, Ysharra says, "She's not bothering you."

Speaking quietly to Dodeka, Pukk says, "Dreaven is about to make a appearance."

Speaking to Ysharra, Rhayveign says, "She's takin' notes on how to fly better, I think."


Accommodations

Kisun asks, "All these people, no food cart?"

Speaking heartily to Pukk, Dwi says, "I see dat feller in the inn alla time."

Speaking to Lylia, Maylan asks, "Should I fetch a food cart?"

Evician says, "Good night Prax."

Speaking to Maylan, Lylia says, "That would be lovely, yes."

Praxopius says, "No need to fetch a cart."

Speaking to Goblyn, Kisun says, "I am sorry, but if there's no sammiches, I gotta go huntin."

Speaking affably to Evician, Cruxophim wishes, "Night, brother."

Praxopius says, "I will be retiring soon for the night."

Maylan says, "Alright you all stay put. I'm freshing the goodies."

Speaking to Madmountan, Darcena says, "You might have to hold me upright."

Speaking to Praxopius, Raelee asks, "Retiring to where, precisely?"

Speaking to Darcena, Madmountan says, "Damnit, now you are making me yawn."

Speaking to Praxopius, Maylan asks, "We cannot offer you dinner first?"

Speaking to Praxopius, Bethenia asks, "Do you plan on staying awhile?"

Praxopius asks, "No dinner. Have you seen what ungodly hour it is?"

Praxopius chuckles.

Speaking to Madmountan, Darcena teases, "I'll have to keep it up."

Praxopius says, "I should be asleep already based on Estorian time."

Praxopius smirks.

Praxopius shrugs at Raelee.

Speaking understandingly to Praxopius, Cruxophim states, "Of course, you've had a long journey. Again, Sir Crux.... if you should need anything."

Speaking to Praxopius, Lylia says, "Of course. Even an uneventful journey is a tiring one."

Zosopage says, "Dinner after a long voyage may not be the best of ideas."

Praxopius says, "I had thought somewhere in town."

Praxopius nods at Raelee.

Speaking to Praxopius, Lylia says, "House Brigatta would welcome you."

Speaking quietly to Cruxophim, Pukk asks, "You're a shiny?"

Speaking coolly to Darcena, Cruxophim explains, "I was knighted, apparently."

Speaking to Praxopius, Lylia says, "We are not far from here, either."

Speaking to Praxopius, Raelee asks, "When will you be meeting with Lord Breshon?"

Speaking to Cruxophim, Yhtrin says, "Sir Crux."

Shinann says, "Lord Breshon eats very late."

Speaking sternly to Cruxophim, Darcena says, "Don't talk to me in that tone of voice."

You surprisedly ask, "Breshon invited you but didn't offer accommodations?" [answered later]

Praxopius says, "This week I hope."

Speaking meekly to a huge scar-faced giantman, Maylan says, "Next time I will have a gift for you as well."

Praxopius says, "He is hosting a dinner soon I was told."

Speaking amusedly to Darcena, Cruxophim scolds, "Alright, crabapple."

Speaking to Praxopius, Ysharra says, "I'm sure you remember Silvergate, it's still here."

Raelee dryly says, "There is room in the Outpost if he so wishes it. It is not very heavily manned."

Madmountan says, "Sir Crux of Phim."

Speaking to Praxopius, Kembal says, "A pleasure to meet you. My name is Kembal, master of alchemy in the Empath Guild."

Speaking quietly to Maylan, Pukk whispers aloud, "A mask?"

Speaking to Praxopius, Ysharra says, "It has comfortable offerings."

Praxopius says, "The Lord offered accommodations."

Speaking heartily to Danthius, Dwi says, "I was hopin fer anudder bar fite."

Praxopius asks, "Which room is that?"

Praxopius peers quizzically at Raelee.

Speaking curiously to a huge scar-faced giantman, Maylan asks, "Do you like masks?"

Speaking affably to Praxopius, Cruxophim agrees, "The Lord provides."

Praxopius says, "Ah, Kembal. Well met."

Speaking to Praxopius, Ysharra says, "You'll like it there. He has a tavern on the grounds of the outpost."

Speaking to Praxopius, Evician says, "Careful of the roltons and kobolds, they're annoying but they mean well. I guess."

Speaking quietly to Maylan, Pukk whispers aloud, "He looks just like Mad, that has to be torture for the poor man."

Praxopius lifts a hand from the blanket on his lap and offers it to Kembal.

Speaking to Praxopius, Raelee asks, "Which room in the Outpost?"

Kembal and Praxopius shake hands.

Praxopius nods at Raelee.

You muse, "I guess even though he did offer, it's good to stay a night back home."

Speaking affably to Praxopius, Cruxophim explains, "He's one of our more... involved alchemists."

Praxopius says, "Every alchemist is involved. If a good one."

Praxopius chuckles.

Speaking to Praxopius, Raelee says, "I work out of the Outpost, but I do not answer to Lord Breshon. Managing accommodations is outside of my purview."

Speaking softly to Praxopius, Balley says, "I agree they need to stay focused on what they are creating."

Speaking evenly to Praxopius, Raelee says, "... but if I must, I have the means to find something."

Speaking to Goblyn, Raelee says, "Finding an open chamber in the Outpost is not a complicated task."

Speaking amusedly to Raelee, Goblyn says, "I am not thinking it would be, Raelee."

Speaking suggestively to Raelee, Cruxophim offers, "I've got an open chamb -- you know what, uh, nevermind."

Praxopius slowly empties his lungs.

Speaking to Praxopius, Raelee adds, "... Magister Raelee Svala of the Hall."

Praxopius says, "Ah! You are the Magister."

Praxopius nods at Raelee.

Praxopius says, "Well met as well."

Raelee nods slowly at Praxopius.
