Charlatos 7-8, 5120

by Leafiara Autumnwind of the TownCrier


  • Magister Cordarius comes to Moot Hall to say that we'll gather and meet to create the Node Fires on the 13th to deal with the blight. Before then, he'd like to meet again to finalize how people will contribute, and how many--and he'd also like Ysharra to try one more time to communicate with the blight. She says she's tried but thinks she'll need help, so Cordarius says we'll help her. They schedule it for two nights later, on the 9th.
  • Cordarius says it's come to the Town Council's knowledge that someone has tried to leverage the false prospect of wealth or other gain if they cast their vote a certain way. The council will conduct an investigation and if they are right, it'll most likely result in a banishment from the Landing for up to 120 days and charges for impropriety, hooliganism, and disturbing the peace, to ensure integrity of the election.
  • Regarding Pylasar's trial, at Grand Magister Octaven's request, Vlashandra from the Hall of Mages will come to serve as the accuser and question those who take time to speak up for Pylasar. Meanwhile, Cordarius will be asking questions of those who speak against Pylasar.


Cordarius Arrives

[Town Square Central]

This is the heart of the main square of Wehnimer's Landing. The impromptu shops of the bazaar are clustered around this central gathering place, where townsfolk, travellers, and adventurers meet to talk, conspire or raise expeditions to the far-flung reaches of Elanith. At the north end, an old well, with moss-covered stones and a craggy roof, is shaded from the moonlight by a strong, robust tree. The oak is tall and straight, and it is apparent that the roots run deep. You also see the Thilo disk, the Gimbo disk, the Cryheart disk, an ember-eyed fire wyrdling, the Tinye disk, a moldy apple cupcake, a flail, a twohanded sword, a twohanded sword, a twohanded sword, a twohanded sword, a twohanded sword, a twohanded sword, a twohanded sword, the palm frond-shaped Leafiara disk, the Zaneon disk, a pair of small steel jaws, a slender steel needle, a crystalline vial containing some dark shimmering oil, a mistwood serving cart with some stuff on it, a sunset-hued leaf-shaped sign that reads, "Vote Leafiara, a Night and Day Difference!", some stone benches with some stuff on it and an herbal remedy donation bin.

Also here: Slagskar, Elbromo, Trallihn, Lady Voxy, Puptilian, Lord Kimlor who is sitting, Gimbo who is sitting, Nyxski, Soneiken, Lord Teryval who is sitting, Sladinix who is sitting, Valif, Lord Treter, Finwrick who is sitting, Orlicks, Freyjun who is sitting, Zyclor, Leafiara, Zephonrow, Zaneon who is sitting, Great Lord Keletheryl who is kneeling

A town crier can be heard nearby saying, "Lord Cordarius will arrive outside of Moot Hall shortly to address some concerns with the mayoral campaign."

Gutstorm drunkenly exclaims, "Hey!"

Sir Cryheart's group just went east.

[Town Square, East]

Here in the center of a broad plaza near the commercial area of the bazaar stands the impressive facade of the slate-roofed Moot Hall, where the citizens of Wehnimer's Landing hold various official, religious and social functions. Facing the square are some of the town's more prosperous shops, still doing business with the many customers who still frequent the streets at night. You also see the Cryheart disk, a dark-haired half-elven priestess, a bright painted campaign sign that reads, "Faerinn 5120: Painting a brighter tomorrow, together.", a shattered sign of bones fashioned into elegant calligraphy, "Civil Disobedience Is Still Disobedience: Obey Xorus.", a giant mound of snow, a polished bleakstone statue and a large purple wooden barrel.

Also here: High Lord Gutstorm, Sir Cryheart, Kobant

Gutstorm yells, "Letsh go shlowpokesh!"

The voice of Hapenlok says, "And this is where I stay. Anyone dispels my invisibility, does so at their own peril."

Leafiara says, "Noted."

(Cryheart waves at the hidden voice.)

Speaking deeply to Cryheart, Guarrin asks, "How'd that escort up to Mule go?"

From behind Cryheart, Hapenlok's voice says, "I'm over here."

Madevra heartily says, "Concerns huh..."

Cryheart says, "Finished it."

The voice of Gutstorm drunkenly exclaims, "No shnugglin in da wanks!"

(Cryheart waves at the hidden voice.)

Cryheart says, "There."

Speaking quietly to Nairena, Elphieya says, "I haven't seen you in too long."

From behind Leafiara, Hapenlok's voice says, "That wasn't me."

The voice of Gutstorm drunkenly exclaims, "Chamorr gonna end up in da slamorr!"

Speaking quietly to Nairena, Elphieya says, "Well, I'm glad you're here now."

Nairena says, "Being smart can be a curse."

Hapenlok suddenly fades into sight.

Hapenlok's right leg looks better.

Hapenlok's hands fade to complete transparency as he intones a spell...

Hapenlok gestures.

Hapenlok suddenly disappears.

The voice of Hapenlok quips, "Nobody saw that!"

You hear a loud, "Thbtbtbtbt!"

Chaoswynd curiously asks, "Saw what? Your incredibly pale and hairy leg?"

Lord Cordarius just arrived.

Cryheart says, "Dinnae see it, but heard it."

Cordarius stretches.

Cryheart says, "Good evening."

Cordarius sneezes loudly!

Cryheart says, "Bless ye."

Nairena says, "Hairy legs are the new craze."

Zosopage says, "Good evenin."

Leafiara exclaims, "Evenin' there!"

Speaking heartily to Cordarius, Chamorr says, "Evenin."

Cordarius sneezes.

Cordarius says, "Excuse me."

Speaking deeply to Cordarius, Guarrin asks, "Feeling alright?"

Cordarius says, "Good evening."

Speaking to Cordarius, Goldstr says, "Evenin sir."

Speaking to Cordarius, Ysharra says, "Good evening, Councilman."

Speaking heartily to Cordarius, Chamorr asks, "Whatchya up to?"

Blight Planning

Cordarius says, "A few things. I won't be here long tonight, I apologize. I am under the weather, and that is no time to tackle a blight."

Leafiara ruefully says, "Ah, unfortunate, but understandable."

Speaking to Cordarius, Lylia says, "My sympathies."

The voice of Hapenlok mutters, "Apple polisher."

Chamorr heartily says, "Maybe he's got a virus."

Cordarius says, "So first thing..."

Cordarius says, "On the 13th of this month we will gather and create the Node Fires."

Lylia says, "Good."

Speaking to Ravinder, Ysharra says, "Our newest member of the Town Council."

Cordarius says, "Before then, I would like to meet again to finalize how each of us, or many of us could contribute."

Cordarius says, "In addition to..."

Cordarius glances at Ysharra.

Speaking to Ysharra, Ravinder says, "I see."

Cordarius says, "I would like to try one more time this week, for you to communicate with the Blight."

Maags whispers something to Cryheart.

Speaking to Cordarius, Ysharra says, "I have tried, but I think I need help."

Cordarius nods at Ysharra.

Xorus whispers something to Lylia.

Cordarius says, "We will help you."

Speaking to Cordarius, Ysharra says, "There is another here who has intimate experience with what we are facing."

Ysharra glances at Faerinn.

Cordarius glances at Faerinn.

Faerinn peers quizzically at Ysharra.

Speaking to Faerinn, Ysharra says, "You are a survivor of Talador."

Faerinn says, "Yes."

Cordarius asks, "Well, good. So we'll meet again, to try to speak with the Blight. Two nights from now?"

Cordarius peers quizzically at Ysharra.

Ysharra nods at Cordarius.

Cordarius nods.

Ysharra says, "Two nights from now."

Faerinn nods at Cordarius.

Cordarius says, "All are welcome."

Ysharra says, "Very well."

Nairena says, "A place hit hard with bad times."

Speaking to Cordarius, Faerinn says, "Two nights then."

Alvyara murmurs, "This should be very interesting.."

Speaking heartily to Maags, Chamorr says, "I dont get no curtsies."

Cordarius says, "But tonight before I turn in for bed..."

Speaking musingly to Faerinn, Leafiara asks, "Quite a number of us were in--or at least under--Talador that night. I take it you were more like Subarashi and took the full brunt?" [Subarashi's story is that she was in Talador when it was destroyed, but was able to revive herself with Miracle)

Maags flings herself against Chamorr, bounces off of him, and giggles madly!

Chamorr falls over.

Chamorr heartily says, "Ack."

Campaign Concerns

Cordarius says, "I wish to address some concerns regarding some recent news in relation to the mayoral campaign."

Speaking to Chamorr, Nairena says, "She's as tall as your boot. Be happy with what she gives ya."

Cordarius says, "I can't believe the debate is only a week away."

Speaking to Maags, Ysharra says, "It's good to see you, Maags."

Speaking heartily to Nairena, Chamorr says, "Dang haflin."

Speaking to Leafiara, Ysharra says, "He lost most of his family, Leafiara. He's from Talador."

Faerinn says, "All of it. At least on that side."

Alvyara murmurs, "Oh, how terrible."

Cordarius says, "It has come to the Town Council's knowledge that someone has...tried to leverage the false prospect of wealth or other gain if they cast their vote a certain way."

Speaking to Cordarius, Nairena says, "The elves call that bribery."

Speaking to Nairena, Skeevve says, "Here in Landing we call it politics."

Ysharra says, "It has a lot of names."

Lylia says, "Buying votes is for those who do not believe they can get them any other way."

Speaking to Skeevve, Nairena says, "She is a wicked girl."

Faerinn says, "None with a good connotation."

Nairena says, "Politics."

Maags exclaims, "Who! Because I has tried to bribe and it has not worked!"

Maags says, "Er."

Lylia says, "I am aware of what 'politics' are. Having engaged in them for some time now."

Cryheart yells, "Should hae tried tarts!"

Cordarius says, "The Town Council does not take these matters lightly. We do all we can to help protect the integrity of the elections, whether the threat be from locals, or even Erithians."

The misty halo fades from Nairena.

Lylia asks, "...and gnomes?"

Nairena says, "Good. I don't have to behave now."

Thrassus says, "Erithians are a myth."

Speaking to Cordarius, Ysharra says, "Next you'll blame Rekarth...oh, wait."

Nairena says, "Cursed halo."

Xorus says, "I reluctantly concede that Erithians, may, in fact really exist."

Speaking to Cordarius, Ysharra says, "Carry on."

Speaking to Xorus, Faerinn says, "That's bullroar and you know it."

Speaking to Cordarius, Lylia says, "Yes, please do. Forgive me for interrupting. Some things merit close attention."

Speaking to Faerinn, Ysharra says, "Like the Black Diabolist."

Speaking to Thrassus, Goldstr says, "Tell dat to dem Erithiann bandits I fite."

Cryheart says, "Tar and feathering."

Maags exclaims, "Yes, that is a serious allegation!"

Lylia says, "Very serious."

Speaking to Lylia, Soneiken asks, "Gnomes?"

Lylia grimly intones, "Ask Xorus."

Pietra offers Maags a freshly baked pineapple jelly donut.

Speaking to Maags, Pietra says, "Almost a tart."

Speaking to Maags, Nairena says, "It's like a poofy tart."

Maags exclaims, "The filling is always the best part!"

Guarrin whispers something to Cryheart.

Pietra asks, "So who do I go to get the bribe?"

Maags exclaims, "Thank yous!"

Pietra says, "I like bribes."

Cordarius says, "It's been said that someone has offered to help buy or sway votes for a specific candidate, even against their own will."

Maags says, "I am luckies Owlies is not here."

Lauranathalasa cheerfully says, "How do we know it isn't one person trying to smear our candidates."

Speaking to Cordarius, Skeevve says, "Now that, is some heavy words. Taking someone's will away from them."

Guarrin deeply asks, "Which candidate?"

Cryheart says, "Incredulous."

Speaking to Cordarius, Thrassus asks, "Against the candidate's will?"

Speaking to Cordarius, Ysharra asks, "...against their will?"

Cryheart asks, "Rooks?"

Speaking to Lauranathalasa, Maags says, "Which is even worse."

Pietra offers Lauranathalasa a freshly baked sugar twist donut.

Lylia asks, "The candidate was unaware of this?"

Lauranathalasa accepts Pietra's sugar twist donut.

Speaking to Cryheart, Hapenlok says, "But not surprising."

Speaking to Thrassus, Ysharra says, "Well we all have questions. Just apparently the same question."

Speaking to Cryheart, Skeevve says, "Far as I know, the Rooks are inactive."

Speaking to Cordarius, Nairena says, "It might be difficult for the council to find out who is doing this. The promise of silver is a powerful tool."

(Zosopage hands Maags a clean cloth.)

Speaking cheerfully to her sugar twist donut, Lauranathalasa exclaims, "Now THIS is a donut!"

Speaking to Zosopage, Maags says, "Hates to waste."

Speaking to Skeevve, Leafiara says, "They're definitely not inactive, but if it's a 'someone' then that would rule them out."

Speaking to Leafiara, Skeevve says, "Fair."

Speaking cheerfully to Maags, Lauranathalasa asks, "Want a nibble?"

Leafiara adds, "...probably, anyway."

Cordarius says, "We will be conducting an investigation, and if we are right, it will most likely result in a banishment from Wehnimer's Landing for up to 120 days."

Speaking to Lauranathalasa, Maags asks, "Trade bites?"

Pietra says, "Oooh I know... Maybe you'll blame all the candidates and then a mayor can be chosen. Like you were."

Speaking to Cordarius, Lylia says, "Excellent."

Speaking to Cordarius, Soneiken says, "Sounds like somebody musta signed on Stephos as a Campaign manager."

Speaking flatly to Soneiken, Leafiara says, "Believable."

Speaking to Cordarius, Faerinn says, "Good."

Lylia asks, "Was this done openly?"

Cordarius says, "Furthermore, we will press additional charges for impropriety, hooliganism, and disturbing the peace."

Maags says, "I heard Stone was in town. No wonder. Problies is all his fault. It surlies is his modus of operations."

Speaking to Cordarius, Goldstr says, "Verra good."

Lylia asks, "At a campaign rally, perhaps? Or was it all behind closed doors?"

Pietra asks, "We can't be hooliganish in town anymore?"

Maags exclaims, "Plant chaos watch it grow!"

Skeevve says, "Hang on."

Chamorr heartily says, "Hooliganism, that bad, huh."

Xorus says, "Hooliganism. The worst of all crimes."

Ysharra says, "You'd expect antics like that out of someone calling himself the blood god, but no."

Skeevve asks, "Last election we were voting someone to burn Landing down...what's this about?"

Speaking to Chamorr, Leafiara clarifies, "Hooliganism in the criminal sense, I take it, not the Bear sense."

Speaking to Cordarius, Hapenlok says, "I'm guilty of that. Often. You'd have to lock me and half this lot up."

Nairena says, "Darn ruffians."

Cordarius says, "I can't share any other details yet until our investigation is concluded, but I wanted to ensure you of the integrity of the upcoming election."

Speaking to Cordarius, Soneiken asks, "Now that sounds...racially motivated, whats amatter wid a little hooliganism?"

Speaking wryly to Hapenlok, Leafiara says, "Yeah, we know."

Lylia smoothly says, "Let us be clear that demonic summoning is now legal in town and is not a disturbance of the peace."

Speaking to Cordarius, Skeevve says, "I'm definitely a hooligan....sign me up for that charge."

Speaking heartily to Leafiara, Chamorr says, "No hooligans around here."

Maags says, "If that was a crime."

Maags lightly drums her fingers on her leg.

Speaking approvingly to Cordarius, Leafiara says, "Well, that's good then."

Speaking to Cordarius, Pietra asks, "Why isn't the current mayor in on this investigation? Or is the council doing it secretly?"

Tsarok quietly says, "S'pose I gotta leave town."

Speaking to Lylia, Ysharra says, "Thanks to you and Cruxophim. Using precedent."

Speaking to Lylia, Nairena asks, "Is that legal?"

Maags says, "Problies no need for a mayor then."

Speaking deeply to himself, Guarrin mutters, "Not feeling very confident in the integrity of this election before the bribes..."

Speaking to Pietra, Lylia says, "It is a delicate matter, I would presume, as I am also a campaign manager."

Speaking musingly to Pietra, Leafiara says, "Conflict of interest since she's a campaign manager. It has to be independent."

Pylasar Trial Update

Cordarius asks, "Any questions?"

Tsarok quietly says, "All water cannons must be turned in to me."

Pietra says, "Hrm."

Speaking to Lylia, Nairena says, "I for one wouldn't argue with anyone that could summon a demon."

Lylia adds, "However, for the record, I would comply fully."

Speaking to Maags, Soneiken says, "Dey need someones to blame."

Speaking to Lylia, Pietra says, "I was not aware of that."

Lylia says, "My candidate has nothing to hide regarding silvers or the promise of them in exchange for votes."

Speaking to Cordarius, Raelee says, "Not related to this."

Cordarius peers quizzically at Raelee.

Speaking to a slobbering silver-grey aishan, Ysharra asks, "Lovely color, but you've got a little...right there, on that a chin?"

Speaking heartily to Cordarius, Chamorr asks, "You plan on canceling the election?"

Cordarius says, "No."

Speaking to Puptilian, Maags says, "Not my fault yous did not see me."

Speaking to Cordarius, Lylia says, "If you need anything from me regarding this, I am happy to assist."

Cordarius nods at Lylia.

Speaking to Lylia, Faerinn says, "Same."

Raelee whispers something to Cordarius.

Speaking heartily to Cordarius, Chamorr says, "Cause a imperial cancleing our election would be bad."

Speaking to Bbee, Maags says, "Thank yous. hopes."

Hapenlok says, "I suppose, I'm going to have to address the small matter of my little madness the other night with the constable."

Speaking to Chamorr, Maags says, "Truth."

Speaking slowly to Chamorr, Leafiara says, "I'm pretty sure it would take the entire town council to vote on that one."

Cordarius says, "Volnes then, we'll try to speak to the Blight once more, before we go in for the strike to suffocate it on Night of the Huntress."

Thrassus says, "I don't think cancelling the election has been mentioned."

Speaking quietly to Cordarius, Raelee says, "Thank you."

Speaking to Chamorr, Soneiken says, "I thinks this is a red herring, probably another way da election convention folks narrow down da field of candidates."

Lylia says, "Fortunately, an election would not have to be cancelled just because one campaign staffer turned out to be...unsound."

Alvyara mouths, "Heron?" [Soneiken had typoed "herring" as "heron"]

Cordarius says, "Oh...that reminds me.."

Cordarius nods at Raelee.

Speaking to Cordarius, Faerinn asks, "Sounds...good?"

Speaking to Alvyara, Lylia says, "Large wading bird noted for its lack of red coloration, overall."

Speaking to Lylia, Soneiken says, "Okay, maybe I wasn't joking bout Stephos."

Lylia flatly says, "Stephos is a worm. I do not know that he is the worm who is behind this."

Bbee asks, "What's going on here?"

Speaking to Bbee, Lylia says, "A discussion of the blight and of the need for campaign finance reform."

Speaking cheerfully to Bbee, Lauranathalasa exclaims, "Just town gossip!"

Speaking to Bbee, Nairena says, "Super secret stuff."

Speaking to Soneiken, Goldstr says, "Stephos gots his wife on da Council alrready."

Speaking to Cordarius, Ysharra says, "I'll be ready. At least, so much as I know I am."

Speaking to Bbee, Maags says, "Possible mayoral race corruption. Firing the blight."

Skeevve says, "Well, fun. So...I can still gamble I hope."

Speaking to Bbee, Maags says, "Hooliganism."

Speaking to Bbee, Nairena says, "You should run for mayor."

Skeevve asks, "Anyone betting on the election?"

Speaking to Maags, Pietra says, "So much hooliganism."

Bbee says, "Sounds normal."

Speaking to Goldstr, Soneiken says, "Which would be motivation for who da Mayor would eventually be."

Speaking flatly to Skeevve, Elphieya teases, "You might be arrested for hooliganism if you do."

Speaking to Ysharra, Faerinn asks, "What does being ready for that even look like?"

Speaking to Elphieya, Skeevve says, "I'm a Hooligan. I'm used to that."

Speaking to Faerinn, Ysharra says, "For me something specific."

Cordarius says, "Someone should be arriving this week from the Hall."

Cordarius says, "At Grand Magister Octaven's request."

Cordarius nods.

Zosopage says, "Politics and corruption. I mwan who would have thought that..."

Nairena says, "So many kitties here."

Leafiara curiously asks, "How many more Hall people do we need around here and what's this one for?"

Speaking incredulously to Cordarius, Raelee asks, "And you are telling me this here and now?"

Thrassus asks, "Who is she sending?"

Lylia says, "A wife is not her husband's creature. Suggesting that Alendrial is Stephos in a gown is insulting. And he lacks the legs for it."

Maags says, "That used to makes us look forward to Pylasar."

Maags says, "Spose it shall not be him."

Cordarius says, "To serve as, well, the accuser if you will, against Pylasar in the trial."

Speaking to Faerinn, Ysharra says, "I'm not sure what else to do."

Speaking to Cordarius, Raelee asks, "Who?"

Speaking to Cordarius, Faerinn says, "Still need an accused."

Leafiara flatly says, "Oh, yes, the trial. Perfectly worth our time and this new person's."

Cordarius says, "She'll be doing some of the questioning of those who take time to speak up for Pylasar, in defense, or against."

Bbee says, "Pylasar makes a pretty bballoon."

Cordarius says, "You may not know her well."

Maags says, "Will there be a jury."

Cordarius shrugs at Raelee.

Cordarius says, "Vlashandra."

Speaking to Cordarius, Pietra asks, "She will question his defenders or accusers?"

Pietra says, "That's odd."

Raelee says, "... we are not acquainted, no."

Speaking to Maags, Faerinn says, "Does it matter? It's not even a trial."

Speaking quietly to Pietra, Tsarok asks, "Both I think?"

Speaking heartily to Cordarius, Chamorr asks, "You are trying Pylasar?"

Cryheart says, "Vlas...shandra."

Speaking to Faerinn, Maags says, "And that is what I fear."

Leafiara slowly asks, "Wait a minute. She's questioning those who speak up at the trial?"

Maags says, "So yes it does matter."

Speaking to Cordarius, Goldstr says, "I will speak ups FOR da Purple mage."

Speaking to Leafiara, Pietra asks, "Seems very backwards, no?"

Leafiara asks, "Interrogations for speaking our voice?"

Speaking to Maags, Faerinn says, "Oh, it's bad. Probably worse than you think."

Speaking to Puptilian, Skeevve says, "Well, good to see you. Seems we only meet during times of people melting, due to weak constitution."

Xorus asks, "Vlashandra is an Adjudicator?"

Cordarius says, "I will be asking questions of those who speak against Pylasar."

Speaking heartily to Cordarius, Chamorr says, "He may be a serial killer, but he is a citizen of the Landing."

Cordarius says, "So I suppose it is only fair."

Nairena says, "The last major trial is seen here involved someone being burned to death. This should be fun."

Speaking to Cordarius, Hapenlok asks, "Forgive me, I'm a bit behind in the times, has he been located?"

Cordarius says, "No."

Faerinn says, "This is a fun mock trial. Maybe everyone will learn something important from it."

Lylia asks, "And what of those who speak the truth of the man?"

Speaking to Hapenlok, Leafiara assures, "The genius of the Empire at work."

Xorus wryly says, "On the contrary. Malluch only had his eyes gouged out and driven mad."

Pietra says, "It was said he'd be tried, even in absentia if necessary."

Alvyara says, "This town is certainly living up to what I was told about it."

Elphieya confusedly asks, "Let me get this straight, we're having a trial but we don't have the accused actually here for it?"

Lylia says, "Still only serving thirty years."

Ysharra asks, "Is he still in custody...?"

Cryheart says, "Seems so."

Speaking heartily to Lylia, Chamorr says, "I object to the imperials staging a trial on a Landing citizen."

Speaking to Alvyara, Puptilian asks, "And what is that?"

Ysharra says, "Shame."

Speaking lightly to Alvyara, Leafiara assures, "We do have better days. ...sometimes."

Maags asks, "Who has called for the trial? The Hall?"

Alvyara says, "It's certainly interesting."

Speaking to Maags, Leafiara says, "Octaven."

Lylia says, "Noted. But his crimes were that of an Imperial citizen. If anything, the change of venue to the Landing is in his favor."

Hapenlok says, "Is there even a point to this? I mean, the land's rotten, Stone's quite possibly have started his end game and..."

Ysharra says, "He is implicated in the death of at least one member of the Imperial family."

Xorus says, "What Pylasar is accused of took place in many diferent imperial jurisdictions."

Faerinn says, "It should be a great example of how trials don't work in the Landing or the Empire. And speaking nothing of extradiction."

Hapenlok says, "Nevermind. Considering I went a bit mad when I encountered stone and did some ...characteristically dumb things in response...."

Alvyara asks, "But.. will there be a jury? Or only a judge?"

Hapenlok says, "I shouldn't be talking about time wasting."

Alvyara says, "I missed it."

Speaking deeply to Ysharra, Guarrin says, "To say nothing of the other citizens."

Cordarius says, "Well, we shall meet again."

Speaking to Hapenlok, Nairena says, "No one is perfect sweetie."

Speaking to Alvyara, Ysharra says, "They will be permitting those of us who worked with Pylasar to speak for him, if we wish."

Cordarius says, "Thanks all for your time, and hey, no rain. Odd that."

Lylia says, "So if you wonder why I do not fight this, now you know. This is not the hill upon which I die, nor the one on which I stake out Pylasar's prone form."

Speaking to Alvyara, Ysharra says, "So witnesses, at the least."

Cryheart says, "Odd indeed."

Lylia says, "Good to have a clear night."

Zosopage says, "Some Arkati is slipping."

Ysharra says, "Plus. They will still have to find him."

Cordarius pulls the hood of his robe down over his face, concealing his features.

Cordarius bows.

Lord Cordarius just went north.
