Commotion Downstairs

  • A pair of loud arguing voices wake up Nightingale, Rook, and Zeke.
  • Due to drinking and staying up so late, Remi sleeps through the loud commotion coming from downstairs in the Inn.
  • With Remi still asleep, Nightingale, Rook, and Zeke sneak downstairs to listen in on the drama.
  • From the stairwell they watch as Padric argues with a redheaded woman he calls Aisling.
  • According to the argument, the two had some sort of serious plan together that Padric decided to no longer participate in. Aisling complains to Padric, and angrily yells that he’s letting her down and whatever they had planned is going to be even more dangerous for her now. Padric tries to talk Aisling out of doing whatever they had planned, making it clear that he believes that it isn’t the right thing to do anymore.
  • There is mention of some sort of dangerous artifact and saving the city. Before the two can elaborate on the meaning of the comments, Aisling looks over to see the three of them eavesdropping from the stairwell. Realizing someone might overhear them, Aisling ends the argument and curses at Padric. She calls Padric a coward and then storms out of the Inn.
  • The three help Padric clean up the mess Aisling made in the Inn.
  • Padric offers them a free room for another night if they keep quiet about what they heard. Really, none of them knew the full extent of the conversation. And despite it sounding a bit shady, they agree if only not to get caught up in Padric’s personal drama.
  • Remi appears, sunken eyed and hungover just in time for the free breakfast promised by Padric.
  • As they eat, Zeke finds an interesting bounty posted on the Inn’s bounty board. The paper depicts a crude drawing of a strange looking Animate and reads “The Warden.” Zeke approaches Padric about the promise of a reward posted on the paper. Zeke tells Padric about their run in with the creature, detailing the fight.
  • ! Flag Check: Bouncer Bounced.
  • After recounting their encounter with The Warden to Padric, the group decides to buy gear before taking a look around Rhamsted.
