I hope I'll have yet have the time and facilities to make sense of my personal hygiene! From the port to the station to the wagon to here, I haven't bathed once, and I rode in with no more than the armor on my back and some trail supplies. I'm hardly presentable to any governor in this informal armor as it is, much less a set I haven't removed in days. And for the matter of how I got here, what was the church thinking, sending me here with no instruction, not one servant, and not even a guide?! Just because I jumped at the chance doesn't mean I intended to map the whole continent myself. Oh, what I'd give for one minute with those fools in charge of the church's dealings with the New World...
For a few minutes, Michelangelo is lost in his thoughts (which begin to grow increasingly haughty) on the way back.

After a bit, he looks to the couple. "Say, my children, I never got around to knowing, do you have any baths in town? What do you do to clean your laundry?"
Turning to the rest of the group: "I'll wash the lot of your wearables for you, if I receive your permissions and the opportunity."

His usual smile is oddly absent.

Michelangelo continues to look at them expectantly (ignoring Dominic) until a simple realization begins to dawn.
"You can't mean that we've all only...what we're wearing...?"

He shudders. "I'd planned to acquire some ritual components and a journal after our first bit of monetary compensation, but I'd never imagined!...I'll see that you all have something to change into, first chance we get."

He puts his hand to his forehead, eyes widening. "Mercy, I hope such an opportunity presents itself before we meet the magistrate. We smell like soiled guttersnipes, we offend the nostrils so!" ...Though the town itself did have a rather colorful aroma to it, on reflection.

Not long after finishing that exchange (with himself), Michelangelo turns to the couple. He tries to keep his tone amicable.
"If you'll pardon my saying so, young masters, you two've been a bit of trouble to find, and the four of us (or at least myself) hadn't but arrived here before we were all sent to find you. Though I'm flattered at it, I find myself wondering why and how four perfect strangers, and out-of-towners at that, came to be used to find missing persons as important as yourselves."

a history roll, to see if Michelangelo can call up any particular knowledge of the region/local life/governance (for the heck of it):
Roll(1d20)+8:
6,+8
Total:14

an insight roll, to observe the couple's moods/ attitudes/reactions:
Roll(1d20)+9:
8,+9
Total:17

(Weeee, I'm free)
"There are baths, and I don't think they've got a shortage of water right now, you should be fine."

"There just aren't enough resources, you were probably sent to find us because the rest of the police were tied up keeping things running. The increased risk might also have played into it," says Jennifer in response to Michelangelo's latest question. As far as Michelangelo can tell, they are telling the truth.

Shortly thereafter, you roll back into town. Night has fallen. An officer meets you by the edge of town, apparently having been stationed there waiting for your return, and guides you back to the constabulary. Inside you find the Sherrif.

"Well, well, well!" he says, seeing the couple, "I'm damn pleased if I don't say so myself. You've saved me lot of trouble fellas. As promised, we'll give you your reward, though you might wanna keep it quite, especially 'round here. If ya'd like, we can keep it safe for you here. Anyhow, you better have a good rest, but come tomorrow morning we should have a nice chat, maybe a defib- defaul- de- whatever they call it."

(100 XP and 2000 GP all around, puts you at 650 XP total).

"And you say there were rocks walking around like people?"

Dominic:
"Oh, I like trouble. NOW this is starting to sound like something I could invest in!"
Dominic:
"Especially if trouble is on the other end of my gun."
Michelangelo:
"Is this normally a quiet place, sheriff? No arcane phenomena?"
Pyotr:
"I think trouble starts at the hilt of the gun in your case"

Pyotr:
"I am built like an ox"
Michelangelo:
"I'm sure you're more bottomless than I, at least"
Pyotr:
"You're a human"
Pyotr:
"...I think"
Dominic:
"We'll see!"
DefeatistElitist:
(he is)
Michelangelo:
"you don't look all that bovine"
Dominic:
"Oxman, is it?"
* Michelangelo titters to himself
Dominic:
"Yeah he doesn't."
Pyotr:
"You sure do, though."
DefeatistElitist:
bovine, is that like a monk with a bo staff?
Dominic:
"ohhhh"
Dominic:
"SICK BURN"
Pyotr:
"im just joking baby"
Michelangelo:
titters himself into the ground
Pyotr:
"dont be mad"
* Pyotr winks

Michelangelo:
No, like a minotaru.

Pyotr:

Pyotr:
"Do you want a small drink, priest"
DefeatistElitist:
Pyotr and Dominic are given small drinks
Michelangelo:
"one. an small drink, sure, brother"
DefeatistElitist:
Michelangelo is given one as well
Pyotr:
"and a small drink for the pious man"

Dominic:
"Okay."
Pyotr:

Dominic:

* Dominic fucks off
DefeatistElitist:
The Sheriff is pleased that you have arrived
Michelangelo:
"on the w-gulp"
DefeatistElitist:
He has another officer with him, as well as a civilian
Pyotr:
"what do the small drinks have in them?"
DefeatistElitist:
And a carriage
Pyotr:
"i was too scared to ask the... chef"
Stella:
"...who's this...?"
* Michelangelo assumes serene walk, hand in hand
DefeatistElitist:
"Lead on brave adventurers"
Michelangelo:
(impression of a good monk)
Dominic:
"Lead on, lead on, lead on till your dreams come truuuue..."
Pyotr:
"Greetings, I am Pyotr."
* Dominic sings for himself
* Pyotr DIPLOMACY MODE ENGAGED
DefeatistElitist:
"This is a local businessman and one of the closest things we got to a scholar. His name's Franklin West"
Michelangelo:
"with immediacy, milord" (glares at Dom)
* Pyotr BASIC SOCIAL RELATIONSHIPS MODULE ACTIVATED
* Dominic gets up on the carriage and assumes driver position
Stella:
Pyotr runs socialRelationships.java
Pyotr:
"Dominic, what?"
Dominic:
"My turn now, Pyotr got it the first time!"
DefeatistElitist:
He forgot to start with a sick neg
DefeatistElitist:
and no kino
DefeatistElitist:
fucking amateur, what weak game
Michelangelo:
(again suddenly interested, jumps into carriage)
* Stella gets in
Pyotr:
ohhh
Pyotr:
oh i know what kino is
Pyotr:
what the fuck is neg though
Michelangelo:
"You know the history of the area, sir?"
Michelangelo:
it's like a not-compliment
Michelangelo:
like a
DefeatistElitist:
It's a backhanded compliment meant to undermine self esteem
Pyotr:
this is stupid ass pua slang!!
Michelangelo:
yeah
Michelangelo:
there you go
Dominic:
lol
DefeatistElitist:
Talking to Franklin or the Sherrif Michelangelo?
Michelangelo:
franklin
DefeatistElitist:
"Indeed, I know a little"
Dominic:
Frankllin D. Roosevelt
DefeatistElitist:
"What would you like to know?"
Pyotr:
"Wizards? Arcane practices? Activity? How old is Mullabok?"
Michelangelo:
"Hmm, for starters, any goblins known to stay in the area?
Michelangelo:
"
Dominic:
lol
Michelangelo:
"Those also are fine qeustions"
DefeatistElitist:
"There were goblin tribes here in the past, as far as I know there's not so many anymore, they like to stay away from us as far as I've heard"
Michelangelo:
"k-kest, koowes-*cough*"
Dominic:
is everyone in the carriage
Pyotr:
"They say Mullabok comes out of his magically concealed space lair once a century, when a genasi man with rippling muscles catches his enormous eye"
DefeatistElitist:
"As for wizards, never heard of any here. To be honest, I'm quite awed to be in the presence of two magicians right now"
Dominic:
lol
Michelangelo:
"Might explain why he was hesitant to approach us, indeed"
DefeatistElitist:
"I'm afraid I don't know this Mullabok though"
Michelangelo:
"Oh, you're in capable hands, for sure!"
Pyotr:
"Mullabok is only the most powerful goblin sorcerer you'll see in your lifetime"
* Michelangelo the smile returns
Pyotr:
"And in many lifetimes, also"
Stella:
"...any...known migrants from the Old World? Namely, Nomesta?"
DefeatistElitist:
i'm dying here
Dominic:
lol
DefeatistElitist:
"We get migrants from all over to Haus, though I don't keep tabs on everyone who comes out here"
Michelangelo:
(late: lol RE Roosevelt)
DefeatistElitist:
"I'm sure we've got plenty though, that war is awful. If I lived there, well, I'd rather come out and live in the middle of the desert with all the hellish things here than continue back there"
Dominic:
lol
Stella:
(...tell me about it...)
* Stella FLASHBACKS
Pyotr:
"here we go"
Pyotr:
"this is your fault, franklin"
* Dominic whips the horses as hard as he can
* Michelangelo the war? Oh, in Dommes
DefeatistElitist:
The horses hurry up as Dominic whips them
* Dominic directs them to the place I guess
DefeatistElitist:
which place
DefeatistElitist:
Mullabok's place, or the canyon
DefeatistElitist:
you know how to get to both
Pyotr:
mullab--
Pyotr:
aw
Dominic:
Mullabok
Dominic:
yeah
Pyotr:
yesssssss
Dominic:
"Let's go see our dumpy friend!"
* Dominic whips the horses again
DefeatistElitist:
You pull up near the plateau
Stella:
"...hope he doesn't mind..."
* Pyotr jumps off the carriage
Michelangelo:
"wonder if he's still there
Pyotr:
"mullabok my friend!!!!!"
Pyotr:
"MULLABOK"
DefeatistElitist:
"Yes. I am Mullabok"
* Pyotr kneels
DefeatistElitist:
"What do you want" comes a tentative voice
* Pyotr pulls franklin down with him
* Pyotr whispers: do as i do
Michelangelo:
"Hello, it's your friends from the other day!"
Pyotr:
"Mullabok the Sorcerer!"
* Dominic jumps off but accidentally lands on Pyotr
Pyotr:
"This is my friend, Franklin the Scholar"
* Pyotr brushes a skeleton off
DefeatistElitist:
"Hello. Yes, I remember. Thank you for returning my stones."
Dominic:
lol
DefeatistElitist:
"Hello Franklin"
Dominic:
"Howdy."
Pyotr:
"He would like to ask for your blessing"
Pyotr:
"And your friendship"
Stella:
"Hello."
Pyotr:
"Is that fine with your mighty self"
* Pyotr say something
Michelangelo:
(is that what he wanted?)
DefeatistElitist:
"Yes, I see. That is fine. I will come down to you."
* Pyotr but be respectful about it"
* Pyotr very respectful
DefeatistElitist:
"Yes, Mullabok, I would like to ask your help", says Franklin
* Pyotr he can fry your brains with a flick of the floppy whatevers he calls fingers
DefeatistElitist:
Mullabok trundles out from the forest, carrying his ridiculous lantern on a stick
* Dominic he's right, I seen him do it
* Michelangelo stifles laugh
Pyotr:
"Franklin the Scholar would like to ask some questions regarding arcane activity in this area."
DefeatistElitist:
"I am Mullabok. I see many things here"
Pyotr:
"Would you be so generous as to answer his inquiries"
DefeatistElitist:
"Yes, I answer"
* Pyotr well ask away
* Michelangelo I think the man understands
* Michelangelo (thank you Pyotr)
DefeatistElitist:
"To be honest, I don't really know what I should be asking, you are the ones who saw everything," says Franklin, "I'm mostly here to write things down, and try to discover what they mean"
DefeatistElitist:
"Regardless, I will try to ask"
Stella:
"...could you explain the air and earth elementals, please?"
Pyotr:
im dying
Pyotr:
fuck
Dominic:
lol
* Michelangelo side-eyes frank a little when he mentions writing things down
* Michelangelo produces journal
Michelangelo:
"Indeed"
Dominic:
"Can I have a look at that for a second?" @micky
DefeatistElitist:
"Mullabok, do you know of any activity like you saw with these fellows here? Like you saw in the canyon"
Michelangelo:
"It's.. empty, but you may, brother"
DefeatistElitist:
"Yes, like the girl said, what about those men of stone?"
Dominic:
"Thank you, a pen?"
* Dominic takes the journal
Michelangelo:
"here you are"
* Michelangelo produces
* Dominic takes pen as well, and starts doodling some crude penises out of Michelangelo's sight
Dominic:
"Okay."
* Dominic gives it back to Michelangelo
Dominic:
"Here you go."
DefeatistElitist:
"Have not seen much." says Mullabok, "But sometimes I do see strange things. That is not something I have seen often"
* Michelangelo stares, counts to a hundred at a dozen numbers a second
DefeatistElitist:
"But I do know that it is strange there. I have been there before, but never seen things like that"
* Pyotr takes journal and pen
* Pyotr doodles wings on the penises
Dominic:
"Art!"
* Michelangelo stares at hands, head slowly turns to Pyotr
* Dominic looking from behind
* Pyotr hands it back, with a shit-eating grin
* Pyotr turns to Mullabok
Pyotr:
"Never before?"
DefeatistElitist:
"Never like that"
* Michelangelo slaps the back of Pyotr and Dominic's heads, turns grumpily to mullabok and franklin
Pyotr:
"has there been any activity out of the ordinary lately, then?"
Dominic:
"Psh, preists. No appreciation for art."
Dominic:
*priests
Pyotr:
"other than, well, the obvious."
* Michelangelo grump intensifies
DefeatistElitist:
"Yes, perhaps some. I have never seen such people here before," says Mullabok, pointing at you lot, "And never have I seen the bandits so frightened. It has made them humble I think. I am glad"
Dominic:
"you respect the legend or I make you the fucking humble"
Pyotr:
"Which ones?"
Pyotr:
"the dead ones?"
Stella:
nya ha ha
DefeatistElitist:
"All of you"
Pyotr:
"or the live ones that were eating a fucking blob of flesh and shit"
DefeatistElitist:
"I respect all legends," says Mullabok seriously, "I always respect the legends"
Dominic:
lol
Pyotr:
hahahahahahahaha
Stella:
uguu
Dominic:
"good bubba"
DefeatistElitist:
"Yes"
* Pyotr nods solemnly
Pyotr:
"What about giant mosquitos? Is this a common occurance?"
Stella:
"...notice any elven warlocks lately?"
DefeatistElitist:
"They are not so strange, I have seen them before," says Mullabok, "Must always be careful, they might carry me away. That is why I always carry fire in this box"
Pyotr:
"that is awfully specific"
DefeatistElitist:
he points to his lantern
* Michelangelo attempts to smile magnanimously
DefeatistElitist:
"What is an elf?"
DefeatistElitist:
"What is a warlock?"
* Michelangelo it's eating so much shit
Dominic:
lol
* Pyotr whispers to Franklin: that flame is undying. it could set off an explosion bigger than the swamp and the village and everything you know and love.
Stella:
"erm..." (how do I explain this...)
Dominic:
"Elves are tall guys with pointy ears, they also hate everyone who's not them."
Dominic:
"As far as I know, anyway."
Pyotr:
"An elf is a human with pointy ears and good manners."
Stella:
"and warlocks are extremely powerful wizards..."
Pyotr:
"Warlock is another word for cunt."
Stella:
"...that too."
* Michelangelo excuses himself from describing elves or warlocks
DefeatistElitist:
"Yes, yes. No. No I have not seen an Elf Warlock. I have seen no magicians here, except for you two. And Mullabok of course"
DefeatistElitist:
"Thank you again for returning my stones"
Stella:
"...Mullabok?"
Dominic:
"Your family jewels were important, after all."
Michelangelo:
"welcome as always, of course, Mullabok"
Stella:
(the question was directed at him)
Pyotr:
"what do the stones do?"
DefeatistElitist:
"They are magic of course! I told you before. Powerful goblin magic you know, very important, very useful."
DefeatistElitist:
"Must not let them fall into the wrong hands"
Pyotr:
"I bet they hold the secrets of this transient world"
Pyotr:
"but that is too much for me to know"
DefeatistElitist:
"Yes, they are very secret"
Dominic:
2deep4u
Michelangelo:
"Do you know whose hands would be wrong, in this case? Any particulars?"
Pyotr:
"no, i will let higher powers like mullabok handle this"
DefeatistElitist:
"They are only safe with goblin sages. Nobody else can safeguard them."
* Michelangelo I wonder how obsequious you have to be before a goblin realizes you're taking the piss out of him
* Pyotr i'm not taking the piss out of anyone
DefeatistElitist:
im dying here
* Pyotr asshole
* Dominic pisses in some corner
DefeatistElitist:
Mullabo examines Dominic as he urinates
Michelangelo:
(clears throat) "would you be the only goblin sage nearby, Mullabok?"
* Dominic smiles at Mullabok
Stella:
"...any elven warlocks nearby, Mullabok...?"
DefeatistElitist:
"Yes, only one left here. The rest are all gone. Gone or dead. Goblins don't like to live near humans, too dangerous."
DefeatistElitist:
"No elven warlocks, no, I told you before!"
Stella:
(oh i thought Franklin answered me, derp)
Michelangelo:
"fair enough, Mullabok"
Pyotr:
"Do elven warlocks bring up some... memory?"
* Dominic zips up
Stella:
"...excuse me."
Dominic:
"ahhh, much better"
Stella:
"...I'd rather not talk about it." (...shit, maybe I've said too much...)
DefeatistElitist:
"Elven warlocks do not sound like a good thing," says Mullabok, "I am glad they are not here"
DefeatistElitist:
"Where do they live?"
DefeatistElitist:
"Please tell me"
Stella:
"...me too." (Looks like that bastard isn't here...)
* Michelangelo turns to Stella attentively
Pyotr:
"They live in shit holes where they plot how best to be a cunt to people"
Stella:
"...There's a famous one back in Nomesta..."
DefeatistElitist:
"Yes, well I will stay away then"
Dominic:
lol
Pyotr:
"or that's how the story goes, anyway."
Pyotr:
"best to do so."
DefeatistElitist:
Mullabok sidles up to Michelangelo
DefeatistElitist:
"What is a cunt?" he whispers
Dominic:
hahahahahaha
Pyotr:
jaksjdhaskjdash
Pyotr:
hahahahahahhah
* Michelangelo peers down, eyes widening
* Stella looks off in the distance
Michelangelo:
"It's, picture the sort of person you'd least like to be around"
DefeatistElitist:
"I see"
DefeatistElitist:
"Thank you"
* Michelangelo shuffles nervously
Pyotr:
"Alright, Franklin. I think Mullabok has said all he has to."
Michelangelo:
"welcome
Pyotr:
"Thank you for your time, Mullabok."
Stella:
"...thank you, sir."
DefeatistElitist:
"It is fine, thank you as well for coming to see me"
Pyotr:
"It is very much appreciated."
Michelangelo:
"Indeed!"
Dominic:
"Thanks, and fuck a good day."
DefeatistElitist:
"Thank you, sage Mullabok," says Franklin
Michelangelo:
(if he asks me what a fuck is I am directing him elsewhere)
Dominic:
lol
Pyotr:
"We'll be leaving for the mound of shit ground now."
* Dominic designated driver
* Michelangelo climbers onto carriage, rips out page that Dom and Pyo drew on
* Dominic cries
* Pyotr takes it before it can be thrown away
* Michelangelo puts the page away
* Pyotr presents it to Dominic
Dominic:
"YES!"
Dominic:
"Thank you."
* Michelangelo lets.. Pyotr take it
* Dominic takes it and stuffs it into a pocket
* Michelangelo writes account of events passive-aggressively
Dominic:
lol
Pyotr:
"cmon dominic get moving
* Dominic whips horses
DefeatistElitist:
The carriage begins to move
DefeatistElitist:
clop clop clop clop
Dominic:
lol
Pyotr:
thank you for the sfx
Michelangelo:
^
DefeatistElitist:
you progress toward the canyon, with little of note occuring
DefeatistElitist:
Dominic pulls the carriage to a halt at the mouth of the canyon system
Dominic:
"Ah, nostalgic."
Pyotr:
"Well, Franklin. Here it is. Your mound of shit."
Dominic:
"I remember that day, when we fought here..."
Stella:
"...you mean yesterday?"
DefeatistElitist:
as if it were only yesterday
Dominic:
"Yes, as if it were only yesterday."
Pyotr:
"We can go to the bandit hideout later if you wanna torch it or something"
* Michelangelo writes account of area wearily
DefeatistElitist:
The bandit corpses are still there
DefeatistElitist:
"Did you kill all these?" asks the Sheriff
Dominic:
"Smells like shit."
Michelangelo:
"..we checked them, did we not?"
Pyotr:
"We found these like that."
Dominic:
"Or worse."
Michelangelo:
"just checking"
Pyotr:
"The elementals probably got them."
Michelangelo:
"no, actually"
Michelangelo:
"right"
DefeatistElitist:
'I see"
Pyotr:
"We also found our two little fugitives bound up on the ground over there, near King Mound of Shitzerland"
Dominic:
lol
Michelangelo:
"Bound and gagged. Not sure by who."
Pyotr:
"The bandits."
Dominic:
"I did that, before you got here."
Pyotr:
"Probably."
Pyotr:
"I don't know why the elementals didn't fuck them up also."
Michelangelo:
"Possibly, but why would they still be unharmed by the elem-oh whatever"
Dominic:
lol
* Michelangelo passive aggression intensifies
* Michelangelo as does writing
DefeatistElitist:
Franklin starts looking around
DefeatistElitist:
"You said you felt some sort of magic being exuded?"
Michelangelo:
"Do you still feel it by the way?"
* Michelangelo looks up
Pyotr:
arcane check
DefeatistElitist:
yeah you should both roll one of those
DefeatistElitist:
and nature if you're trained in it
Pyotr:
Roll(1d20)+9: 20,+9 Total:29
Stella:
i'll do a nature and aracana
Michelangelo:
daaaang
Pyotr:
one of the most dumb rolls
Pyotr:
straight 20
Pyotr:
fuck it
Pyotr:
im done
Pyotr:
with luck
Pyotr:
ever
Stella:
13
Dominic:
lol
Stella:
that was arcana
Stella:
14
Stella:
nature
Stella:
those were pretty bad
Pyotr:
Roll(1d20)+2: 11,+2 Total:13
Pyotr:
also nature
Pyotr:
i guess
Pyotr:
whatever
DefeatistElitist:
Pyotr feels the power hardcore, Stella feels a definite presence of something
Pyotr:
lol
* Michelangelo continues to stare
DefeatistElitist:
Pyotr feels like there is some major source of Arcane power here
Dominic:
lol
Pyotr:
"Yes. There has definitely been some major arcane activity here. It's still present, in fact."
Stella:
"...You feel it too, huh..."
* Michelangelo writes, still looking at Pyotr. the handwriting is terrible
Pyotr:
"There is a source of power here."
Pyotr:
i dont know what that means.
Dominic:
lol
Pyotr:
can i do stuff with it.
DefeatistElitist:
hold on
* Michelangelo the staring is becoming uncomfortable
* Dominic falls asleep on the carriage
* Michelangelo starts wandering around
* Pyotr sits on the ground
Michelangelo:
"Knew I should've taken that primer on the arcane with me."
* Pyotr starts doing genasi magic stuffs
* Dominic farts loudly in his sleep
Pyotr:
HOW DO YOU FART
Pyotr:
HOW DO YOU DO ANYTHING
* Dominic fart echoes through the canyon
DefeatistElitist:
back
DefeatistElitist:
Franklin continues to examine the area, writing things down
DefeatistElitist:
"So the elementals, you say they just arose from the earth?"
* Stella does a nature check on the nearby rocks
Stella:
25
* Michelangelo sneeks a peer at frank's notes
Pyotr:
yo
Pyotr:
what can i infer from the arcane whatever
DefeatistElitist:
They look like rocks, though you do get the distinct impression that it's not a natural arrangement
Stella:
"...they suddenly popped out of the rocks and attacked us..."
DefeatistElitist:
You can infer from the arcane check that something in the area is giving off arcane energy
DefeatistElitist:
probably something about this place caused the elementals to form
Pyotr:
thank you
Pyotr:
"The elementals might have formed as a reaction to the power source nearby."
DefeatistElitist:
"Fascinating"
DefeatistElitist:
"This could be very valuable knowledge, Sheriff, if we could find what's causing this, it could be a very good thing for our town"
* Michelangelo perks up
* Michelangelo sneeks a peer at franks notes, /really hard/
Dominic:
deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting
Dominic:
dreaming dreams no mortal has ever dared to (butchered?)
DefeatistElitist:
There's not too much more in Frank's notes than what he has said, he seems pretty interested in the idea that there migth be a magical energy source nearby
Michelangelo:
(looked up, that's actually about perfect, just left out "dream before" at the end)
Dominic:
whoa
Dominic:
neat
* Michelangelo goes back to wandering, just minorly disappointed
DefeatistElitist:
"Can you tell where the power is coming from?"
DefeatistElitist:
Pyotr can tell it's coming more strongly from inside the rocky outcroppings
Pyotr:
he heads there
Pyotr:
tries to feel stuff out
Pyotr:
what's up with it
* Stella tags along
Pyotr:
where does it come from
Pyotr:
can he sniff it back to its origins much like a bloodhound
Pyotr:
or a bluehound
Pyotr:
cause hes a genasi
Dominic:
lol
Stella:
do we do another arcane roll
DefeatistElitist:
It appears to be emanating from inside the stone pillars, as well as the walls of the canyon, you suspect there might be some sort of mineral deposits or something
DefeatistElitist:
nah, the original arcane rolls can stand
* Michelangelo squints at the rock
DefeatistElitist:
the rock squints back
Stella:
(...this could be quite the find...)
* Michelangelo jumps, thinking he might've seen a face in the rock
Michelangelo:
DEAUGH
DefeatistElitist:
the squinting rock dissapears
Dominic:
lol
* Michelangelo collects self
DefeatistElitist:
Seeing the magicians, Franklin comes over
* Michelangelo coughs, attempts to look nonchalant
Pyotr:
"It seems to be coming from the canyon walls."
Pyotr:
"Perhaps a charged mineral?"
DefeatistElitist:
"Perhaps we could send out somebody to try to do some digging later"
DefeatistElitist:
"That sounds promising"
* Michelangelo eyes light up
DefeatistElitist:
"It could be incredibly dangerous though"
* Pyotr tries to feel out the mineral nearest to the wall and dig it out with his hands or something i dont know
DefeatistElitist:
Pyotr finds a few small stones that seem to be giving off something faint
Michelangelo:
(I KNEw the new world would be important to our destiny! chew on this, you old sods)
Pyotr:
he magically inspects the shit out of them
Dominic:
lol
DefeatistElitist:
Pyotr notices that there is definitely arcane energy stored within these stones, and that a mage could fairly easily harness it
DefeatistElitist:
It seems like the energy has slowly been discharging as well
DefeatistElitist:
That might be why the elementals were here
* Michelangelo runs over to Pyotr like roadrunner speed, stares at stones
* Pyotr throws one to Franklin
DefeatistElitist:
Franklin fumbles it, but manages to find it on the ground
Pyotr:
"These stones have some faint residue of arcane energy stored within still."
DefeatistElitist:
"Interesting. Do you think they might be valuable?"
Pyotr:
"A mage such as me could easily manipulate it."
DefeatistElitist:
"I see..."
* Michelangelo licks lips internally
Pyotr:
"They've been slowly discharging."
Pyotr:
"The elementals probably appeared because of this."
Dominic:
"CEASELESS DISCHARGE"
DefeatistElitist:
"Do you think magicians would be willing to pay for access to such material?"
Michelangelo:
by the way, have any of you guys played skies of arcadia
DefeatistElitist:
no
Dominic:
nope
Pyotr:
that fucking boss is a joke
Pyotr:
nope
Michelangelo:
dang, moonstones and shit are really spot on here
Pyotr:
"Maybe."
Stella:
"maybe I could make wands or staves out of this... so probably..."
Pyotr:
"Is that really your first concern right now?"
* Michelangelo begins writing a letter back home like mad
DefeatistElitist:
"Excellent, we'll send a group out here as soon as possible. Thank you very much!"
Pyotr:
"I want a cut."
Stella:
"...it might be dangerous, though..."
Pyotr:
"I found them, after all."
DefeatistElitist:
"Rest assured, you will be amply rewarded for your role"
* Pyotr he pockets what he already has
* Stella pockets a stone
DefeatistElitist:
"This isn't just a source of money for us, it's a source of security for all of Haus"
* Michelangelo peeks to see if there's any more to pocket
DefeatistElitist:
Michelangelo manages to grab what he thinks are some magic stones
Pyotr:
lol
DefeatistElitist:
they look a lot like Mullabok's magic stones
Dominic:
lol
* Michelangelo eyes turn into symbols of divine power
* Pyotr slaps micky a little
Dominic:
with his cock
DefeatistElitist:
how vulgar
Pyotr:
like a 40oz
Dominic:
yes

"He could be a powerful ally"

"To us mortals he will merely be friendly towards"
Stella:
"I don't think he's interested in human affairs..."
DefeatistElitist:
"It's truly amazing that you managed to find him so quickly, yet we who have lived here for years knew nothing about him"
Pyotr:
"He will definitely be interested in magic stones"
DefeatistElitist:
"Perhaps that is why"
Pyotr:
"Let's go with Mullabok again then i miss him already"

After a few more minutes of looking around, the sheriff turns to you.

"Well boys. And girl. I suppose we better head back to town now. I feel kinda nervous leaving this place all alone though, though I'm not so sure how we'd best guard it. I figure half of us can stay here, the other half can grab some more people from in town and bring'em out," says the sheriff.

"You're right," says the sheriff, "I was thinking something along those lines. On the other hand, we can't just have you four stand around here, day and night, can we? I figure if we stay vigilant, they should be able to flee if anything bad happens."

"We'd be better equipped to deal with the elementals, should they come back...the sheriff and policeman should be able to guard the professor on his way back to town."

"We'll head back to town then shortly, I suppose," says the sheriff, "Let me know now if there's anything you need."

"Ehrm. Ah. Yes. Although, that is, I mean, to be sure, I-"

Michelangelo stops muttering under his breath as they finish. "Yes, if I may I ask, is this land, and this area in general, is it effectively owned by the magistrate, or simply by Haus? Or is it effectively in No Man's Land? I wouldn't want to, uh, make any mistakes in docume-er, interpreting the state of affairs."

"The government claims all land out to a hundred kilometers from the nearest settlement, plus whatever they officially claim on a map, so this would fall under that. Of course, that might not matter."

"Hmm. Bandits and a lack of official presence make it easier to say than to apply, I presume?"

"Pretty much. I mean, the government's got a lot on its plate too, lots of things to do, can't be everywhere all the time."

"Mm-hm." Michelangelo prepares to head back, and tries to recall what the latest affairs he's heard have been going on in Haus.

Michelangelo recalls that Haus is trying to rapidly expand through its entire southern frontier amid rising tensions between itself and the nearby nations of Bataar and Veer. In addition, the war in Dommes means that there are potentially vulnerable overseas holdings for the taking.

Michelangelo looks at Pyotr a moment, then smiles a bit nervously. [he didn't hear Stella because he was muttering to himself]

"Oh, Sheriff, I think I may have gotten the wrong impression somewhere. Did you wish for myself, or, er, any of the rest of us to accompany you and scholar Franklin back to town? Or did you mean that you two would be going back to town yourselves? I'd, ah, assume stay here a bit, but if you should feel the journey back would be safer with an addition to your escort..."

Michelangelo tries and probably fails to keep his gaze from blatantly wandering towards Dominic.

OOC:
I'll be cool with having Mick stay at camp, too



Michelangelo remembers something just after he finishes speaking, and kicks himself internally for forgetting to look for a particular ritual while he was in town, but keeps quiet.
It can wait.

"Franklin, myself and my officer will head back to town now then, we'll leave you all here. If we're lucky it won't be necessary, but I'd rather err on the side of caution. Bandits could come back, or those things could rise again. We should be back tomorrow with a lot more people."
