Rock and Dust
So I caught a magical item up to the elven capital. I’d imagine if I’m not careful, the Treznan citizens might try to claim me as one of their own. I don’t deny my elven heritage but I’ve always been more fond of the humans; I haven’t figured that one out yet.
Anyways upon meeting up with Slog and his companions, we got down to business and quickly negotiated on a price we could all manage to stomach, something in the neighborhood of a crisp 60k in gold and gems. Those I had been teleported with seemed content with this transaction and turned to Xeno to leave. I had further business with them though.
I told them I was willing to offer them an additional incentive for having made this deal with me. I said I was in possession of a neat training facility that I came to own after an adventure from my Avenger days once called the Cave of the Misfortunate One. Its previous owner lacked the skill I have or the luck for that matter and so I’m utilizing it much better then she.
I gave them a bag of magic dust that when spread on the ground would generate a portal to just outside the cave. They could use this dust to travel there and play around in the facilities. I’d already gone ahead and placed a prize at the end for any of my would-be rogue students. I figured since the place would come into lack of use after I left, that these kids could have a shot at it. Their eyes seemed to light up when I talked of the treasure at the end. And with that we departed.
I failed to mention that I sent Nadia and one of her students ahead to meet them there. Now that I think about it, there might be some confusion considering the kind of entourage that woman travels with these days. How is it no one notices in Talisman? The things money can buy and she has more money then I’ll ever see. You could hardly tell though, she dresses half the time in almost nothing or rags at best. I’m sure she’ll go easy on them.
