Back to Eveskyr (Highforge)
Scene II - 5th month (Buhrlen, Felmont, Summer, 1st-28th, 990 AC)
"Trying to gain the alliance of centaurs would be indeed a very good idea
- Bonth says - yet most of them live beyond the Shutturga to the east. But we will try. I really hope the Council has its reason as Lucius say but I mostly share the fears of Taradain. Anyway we will see what will happen in the next months..
"Equipment and Living
You receive three months of pay from Highforge, 15 golds. Added to the sheets. Removed 2 silvers for minor personal expenses.
Highforge is a city where a variety of equipment is often available, including trained animals, horses, magic and much else. So if you want to buy something, tell me. Also you now still have quite basic clothing and little personal items with you. Now that you have a steady paycheck you may wish to buy something else, such as clothes, books, jewelry, good food or anything else you may like.
Even if you do not spend anything for food and living, as you have it free in the Ranger House or where you work or among the family in the case of Bofar, I will remove 2 silvers a month for minor expenses (drinks, food, basic clothing).
Bofar has a room in the house of his family.
Dim has a room in the Illusionist house.
Taradain and Lucius have a room each at the Ranger house.
These rooms are very small, with a small window, and contain only a bed, a candle and a small unlocked chest. You may wish to improve or decorate them at some point or even to have a more permanent lodging.Personal life and relationships:
I have added to your sheets the people you have known in Mirdal, Chryspatos and Threshold.
As already said Bofar has a family in Highforge. Grand Aunt Durla, sister of your paternal grandfather, encourages him to see her niece Klisa, the daughter of his son Moric. She is a gem cutter, is beautiful and seems a nice, solid dwarf girl, four years younger than you. Bofar's interest in her is +7. Her apparent interest in you is +7 too. (See explanation of this here: viewtopic.php?f=65&t=14327&p=183685#p183685
However Aunt Thrala, daughter of the brother of Bofar's maternal grandmother, also encourages him to see her daughter Faris, a leatherworker as she, apparently a much more expansive and exuberant girl than Klisa (for a dwarf girl). She is nine years younger than Bofar. Bofar's attraction for her is only +3, even if many dwarf would consider her more beautiful than Klisa. Faris' apparent interest for Bofar is only +1.
As already said Dim is very interested in Agnja, also an apprendist at the Illusionist house with the gnome wizard Teish. Dim's interest in Agnja is +9, while her apparent interest in Dim is just +1. Still she seems a bit more interested in Dim than in her friend Blago who came from her village and clearly likes her, immediately hating Dim because Agnja seems to favor him.
Taradain for now has not encounted any human boy of her age. She spends most of her time at the Ranger house with the haflings rogues Mino and Talla or at the Music house with the middle age gnome female bard Lasa.
Lucius sometimes drinks a beer at the Iron Axe Inn, where occasionally some humans are present. He meets four adventurers, a gnome male, a dwarf female, a human male and a human female named Tiana. They are here to explore the burrows, searching for treasures. Tiana says she is from Minrothad. Lucius' interest in her is +6, her apparent interest in him is +4. She seems available for a non-committed relationship, if Lucius is interested.
Obiously you can choose any action taking into account your character and his situation. Lucius can choose to hang out with Tiana for just a while and develop a simple friendship with her, while Bofar could decide he doesn't want to do anything now, just slowly knowing better his two cousins once removed. Dim could also wait to see if Agnja will like him a bit more, or try to speak with her immediately.
Taradain could see if there are human boys and girls her age in town, not necessarily for romantic interests but also just for friendships..
