Act I - Choices
Scene V - Mirror Bay Inn, 3rd Day (Thaumont, 3rd 990 AC)
Timos stays for lunch, and soon also Fortunato arrives, Theosius and Tatjana shortly after, and Trark.
"I have spoken to Mikel at the Hightower - Fortunato says - the two men and the hobgoblins have not told anything, for now the guards have not discovered the identity of the escaped man or the wizard, but in a week the magistrates should decide the fate of the captured slavers. Probably in view of the gallows the two men will become more cooperative than they are now. To partially repay you of saving my daughter, I will pay food and lodging here at the inn for this week. After that, I'd like to offer you a job for the Vorloi. It will be mostly guard duty, with the occasional special mission as the recent one. That is valid mostly for Bofar, Lucius, Dim and maybe Gharis, as you are the older ones. Taradain, Mitri and Tiberius are a bit too young for that instead, so maybe an apprenticeship would be more appropriate, and I can help with that. I will also give you a house nearby in which you can live. But I let also Theosius and Tatjana speak for their offers".
"Indeed - Theosius say - the Torenescu are willing to offer the same, job and housing. We can understand if the thyatians among you prefer to be employed by the Vorloi, but the traladarans could choose to work with us instead. I cannot guarantee that Torenescu and Vorloi will always cooperate, but I hope they will not come to blows. In any case, you will not be requested to fight against your friends.
"And the last offer is mine - Tatjana says with a smile - join the Society. You already know our cause is to defend traladarans, and common people. Our side is the right one, you should be able to see that. We also pay better".
"I have no offer for you except my friendship - Trark smiles - if you are willing to risk the danger of being associate with an orc. Now let's eat something!"
Corina brings you the lunch.
(Before proceeding to Act II next monday and advancing to Thaumont 10th, we will play your personal errands and business in the character sheets. You should also decide what job you wish to accept. A steady job will give you stability, obviously, but you can also decide to decline them all).
