Drunken priest - at The Talking Troll

The man glances up from the ground and blinks a few times - a good indication that he's alive.

"Whatchawan?" the priest says with a pronounced slur in his voice.

Kaelen - at the Talking Troll Tavern

While Arus goes over to help the priest, the barkeep continues his conversation with Bern, "So it was never my dream of owning a tavern. No, no. I have much bigger plans for the Talking Troll!"

Zhu

She nods. "You may tell her I am available to speak with her at any time." The man seems at least somewhat observant. She doesn't think he missed the silver pendant she wears openly, and that pendant should be all the explanation he needs.

Turning to those with her she says inquiringly, "So. Northshield House then?"

<Bern>

He turned from the group effort to 'restore' the priest to some semblance of 'consciousness' when the bartender continues their 'discussion'.

"There are much =worse= things than =owning= a bar", he said thoughtfully. "What =were= you hoping for", he asked, sounding quite interested.

Urlam - at the Triboar Travelers

"I will tell her how .... cooperative you all were."

The smirk on the man's face portends the twisted tale he's starting to craft in his mind. If he noticed Zhu's pendant or cares about it, he gives no indication of that.


Kaelen - at the Talking Troll Tavern

"When I took over the tavern from the previous owners, I had dreams of turning this place into a theater. I know it would do well, but sadly, I do not have the funds to do the work needed to help convert the place."

"Well don't give up the idea", he said with a grin. "If you are lucky and work at it, I am sure that you will make it happen", he added with a wink. "And I will be sure to come to see a show once you get it going", he said raising his glass in salute.

Arus to The Priest
(at The Talking Troll)


Arus had shaken Bern's hand when offered.

Now he studies the priest for a moment, considering whether to offer a hand of his own.

The weak light in the tavern is not a hindrance for the triton's darkvision but drunkeness always makes a man's mettle hard to gauge.

"Tis odd to see a priest sprawled without an altar." Arus says, slipping his hands back into his gauntlets. He is making ready to leave, the drink having slaked his thirst and roused his hunger.

Before he does he holds out a hand to the priest. It's a foul night, he can at least escort the man back to his temple.

"Come, let's get thee where thou'rt going."

...at the Talking Troll Tavern

Kaelen sighs in response to Bern's suggestion. "Alas, without funding there is very little chance that it would happen. Were I to find financial backers, they would surely profit greatly."

A few yards away, the priest does take Arus's hand and tries to rise, which is tricky, but with some help he gets to his feet, although quite wobbley. With a simple head nod, he indicates a nearby booth, which he likely suggested because it was close.

Kriv

"We would expect nothing less of the Zhentarim, and we shall likewise share the reputation you have established far and wide," concluded Kriv, though if that was either approbation or opprobrium he left hanging in the air, depending on what was warranted.

Arus to The Priest
(at The Talking Troll)


He seats the priest in the booth. Arus is eyeing his cloak by the door, ready to go, but it seems the priest has even less will than stamina.

"What ails thee priest? Apart from a skinful of beer."

As far as Arus knows, people only drink themselves legless to celebrate happily or drown their sorrows. And Arus doesn't see the priest singing and dancing.

He doesn't respond to Kriv with more than a single eyebrow being raised. As far as he's concerned, the discussion has concluded and he's ready for the quartet to leave his office.

The wordplay still seems wasteful, and so she repeats to the group as she makes her way towards the door, "Northshield House?"

Davroar

The others seem to know more about the Zhentarim than himself, so he remains quiet on that topic, but when it comes to finding a place to eat he says, "Sure Zhu. Let's go..."

Jaliera

Might as well have a look. She links her arm through Davroar's as they set off. When they were a suitable distance away she asks the others.

"Any idea why those guys wanted us to move to the other campground? Just thinking that if we need help or cooperation here it might be a small thing to do to keep them happy?"

Just as the work to establish the campsite gets underway, two men walk into the compound with the hoods of their cloaks pulled over their heads to ward off the rain. From the looks of their clothes, they are well-off. "Could you not have come any later? Set up over there, not here!" one of them orders the men that were about to establish camp. Once they are close enough, you can see that the man that called out is wearing an eye patch over one eye. The other male looks to be half-elf.


Could be my assumption? Thought they meant the other campground.

[[ I don't remember anything =specific= about where 'over there' was ... just assumed that the caravan operators had been here before and understood where 'over there' was <g> But that does not invalidate Jaliera's question as to why they had been directed 'elsewhere'. ]]

(OOC - Yeah, I had assumed they were just yelling at them to move from one spot in the campground to another. Just sounded, to me, like a person who had a need to flaunt their power.)

Zhu - with Jaliera, Kriv, and Davroar

As they leave she ponders, musing partially towards the group. "A bit odd, though association with the Zhentarim may explain most of it."
