OOC: Before I start this thread I just want it to be known that I'd rather not have any God-fighters in it. That is to say I'd rather have characters on par with Raistlin in the Chronicles, rather than on par with Raistlin in Test of the Twins. The only reason I ask this is because it would spoil the fun of the quest I have planned to have people who can just teleport around and slay dragons. Don't get me wrong though, I still love you super-dudes in the other forums ; )

Also just to clear things up, yes I know that Lupines are in Mystara, not Dragonlance. And yes, I have an explanation for why and how Jaque is on Krynn.

Jaque watched the tavern from across the road in the Afternoon shadow of Cuttlery shop. He had found that his appearance frightened the people of this place, (they believed him to be some sort of foul beast, something which offended him greatly) and so he travelled in disguise now. He was loathe to wear something as unfashionable as a hooded robe or cloak or such. Therefore his outlandish apparel of silk and ruffles still drew attention. However he now wore a wide-brimmed hat that was fully draped in dark veils on all sides. He appeared perhaps to be a mourner, a very rich mourner.
Due to his lack of modesty in dress Jaque had been assualted by brigands and ruffians many times in the several weeks he had been in these lands. The Lupine took great pleasure every time he removed his hat and revealed to the bandits his canine appearance. He hadn't had to draw his sabre once...
Sizing up the Alehouse, Jaque allowed himself to hope that finally he had found the right place. This city seemed to be a gathering place for small time heroes, rogues, wizards, sleazy merchants and all other questionable types. Perhaps he could finally get the information he needed here. The young Lupine carefully crossed the dirt road and slipped into the tavern, drawing as little attention to himself as possible.
Taking a seat in a corner at a small table Jaque watched the occupants looking for a potential informant.

OOC: Do I have any superchars?*shivers* I hope not,warn me if I develop any.
Joe watches the strangely dresses man from a nearby table curiously. The colorful rainbow at his shoulder pulses with gold streaks, a sure sign that its master is thinking thoughts of avarice.
Joe smiles and walks over to the richly dressed man, nonchalalntly sitting at his table. "Nice to meet you, kind sir. I am called Joe, and I really hate to sit alone. Do you mind if i sit here?""I should become a lesbian"- Quiralanthalasa ,in a moment of deep reflection on her life.

Jaque Looked up and by his tone was probably smiling "Not at all stranger, please" His tone was richly accented (very much like a Frenchman's) and every word came out slowly, not as if his command of common was lacking, but more as though he was turning the words over carefully before speaking them. He pushed out a chair with his foot and gestured with a gloved hand to it. From under the veil Jaque studied the man trying to decide whether or not he should speak with him further...

06/16/2001 11:09 AM

Joe smiles and takes the seat, the golden rainbow settling on the table like a cat."Two mugs of ale for me and my friend here!" he shouts to a nearby barmaid and tosses her a copper piece."So friend, what are you doing in this ratty place?""I should become a lesbian"- Quiralanthalasa ,in a moment of deep reflection on her life.

OOC: Actually this was sort of a plot to force you guys to make new characters but if it's between those two, use the non-dragon. Istant travel and powerful spells is most of what I'm trying to avoid.

06/17/2001 1:26 AM

Jaque growled, a low sound in his throat. This stranger was going to make things hard on him. There was no was that the lupine could drink the ale without drawing some attention

Dismissing the ale with a wave of his hand Jaque asked the question that never failed to get him a reaction, "I'm here for information, a very abundant commodity in seedy bars. What I need to know is... well, what do you know about the Tower of Wayreth?"

Joe_Ghostbuster
06/17/2001 7:01 AM

Joe frowns as the strange man as he refuses the ale. There went the plan to get him so drunk he passed out, leaving his money pouch readily avaliable. Oh well, he didn't need cash so bad, and this man intruiged him, first of all for ignoring the floating rainbow as if it was a dog. "The Tower of High Sorcery,you mean. Well ,I know what everybody knows. Its the gathering place of all the sorcerors,and they take the Test there.Thats about it, i don't like sorcerors much.""I should become a lesbian"- Quiralanthalasa ,in a moment of deep reflection on her life.

Kista StarBlade saunters into the Inn, her only companion was the Large Cheetah-like Grass cat at her side. She paused long enough to look around, her Lavender eyes landing on Joe. She smiles and straightens her Platinum blonde hair, deftly hiding the Silver and Platinum pendant under her tunic.

"Hey I know you." She says to Joe. "my Friend Kalia told me all about you!" The elf paused and smiled at Joe's companion. "Are you really gonna rely on this old con man are you??" she asked, flashing a charming smile.With love and free will to all....

06/17/2001 1:59 PM

Joe looks at the elven woman with annoyance. "I'm sorry? I don't know any Kalia, I think you have me confused with somone else...but please, sit here with us, unless my friend here objects...""I should become a lesbian"- Quiralanthalasa ,in a moment of deep reflection on her life.

06/17/2001 4:43 PM

Jaque waves his hand in dismissal "Don't mind at all..." Examining the sorcerer closely the Lupine decided it must have been a female. They usually wore their hair a bit differently. Standing he pulled out a chair for the lady. Not for the first time he wondered about the man's pet. Perhaps everyone had one and these people would think him strange for asking about it. Perhaps it was rude to ask. Jaque sighed so many strange things and strange customs here.

Sitting he looked over at the roguish "con-man." The kid didn't look ofthe bad sort, but what did Jaque know of humans.
"You said you just know what everyone knows, well pretend that I know nothing." Jaque smiled, that was actually the case. "I need to know everything who runs it? Why do... what did you say? MAGES? Gather there? And most important... where is it. I'm willing to pay you for your information services."
With that Jaque set a large pouch of coins on the table. "and there's more if you can help me further..."

A short stubby looking dwarf with a long fiery red beard walks casually into the tavern. A huge dented axe strapped to his back causes him just a little trouble entering the doorframe. After pulling himself free he orders some ale from the barkeep and climbs up onto a stool, his feet hanging inches above the ground.

From this perch he glances around the tavern, and ending up stairing at a group of three in interest. They were talking about something important it seemed but he couldn't make it out through all the noise. His mug of ale came and he downed it in one long pull, grunted thanks to the barkeep and tossed him a couple coppers.

Again he looked to the interesting trio and decided-since there was nothing better to do- that he would find out what they were talking about. He looked around for a table close to theirs but when he found none he decided to just be blunt about it. That was the usual way of his people after all.

Approaching them he caught a few words of their conversation, one of them almost making him turn back around. Mages. He had no desire to be near any magic but the phrase "Im willing to pay..." perked him up quite a bit. Especially after he saw the large jingly pouch that found its way to the table.

With a gleam in his eye the dwarf made his way to their table and asked, "What be it that ye be paying all that coin for? maybe I could be of service to ye?"

Kalia_Majere
06/17/2001 10:03 PM

Kista looked up innocently at Joe. "oh sure you do...I mean its hard to mistake someone like her...you know Silver hair Gold eyes, usually uses magic no human or elven mage could ever hope to imitate. I mean, geesh, a Crystal Dragon is kinda hard to over look."

she stoped and smiled to Jaque. "oh...You said you where willing to pay...Sure I'll help..I mean I have no love for those Tower Mages. The tower of High Sorcery resides in the forest of Wayerth..In Palanthas. I would be only too Happy to lead you there..."With love and free will to all....

A kender walks gingerly towards the table. He is 4"6. He is wearing a leather breast plate and some brightly colored clothes. He has a few daggers and hell of lot of pockets. In his right hand is a hoopak. He smiles at the group and walks over. " So As I hear it you're going to the tower. As I am a honest kender and always looking out for the smaller guy. Well, not as smaller as me but you know. But as I was saying you need a guide and I, Nazz Bitterroot am offering. Nobody can be right all the time. Well I can!

RedSteel75
06/17/2001 11:00 PM

Jaque looked around. "Io's bane..." he muttered. Once again he had become the center of attention. And so much information to process. Two towers? He had steeped through the portal with the order to find the master of THE tower, and whenever he asked of the tower he heard of a place called Wayreth, but there was another?

A conman (as if there was a human who wasn't), a strange playful woman (?), a dwarf (dwarves were ugly, and Jaque had no wish to be around anything so... untasteful), and a pup (who was offering work as a guide). This was the BEST he'd done since he'd been in this accursed place. Jaque growled sadly, he would apparently return home in shame.

Not wanting to draw anymore attention Jaque stood and said, "All of you come with me around back. I have something I'd like to show all of you, and perhaps you all could further inform me." Jaque realized it was dangerous to trust people in a place like this, but what choice did he have?

Kalia_Majere
06/17/2001 11:04 PM

Kista looked towards the Kender and smiled warily. She tended to avoid Kender as a rule, She had lost too many things "found" by Kender. Her hand closed reflexivly, protectively over the silver and platinum pendant that hung around her neck, and quickly tucked it back under her tunic.

"an honest Kender eh? well..I guess that all Kender are honest in their own way...just what makes you so different?" she fixed her Lavender eyes on his, while the Grass-Cat,Warrl growled in his throat

She turned to Jaque and smiled, considering his words, she nodded hand followed him out back.With love and free will to all....

Joe cringes as first the dwarf and then the woman , and then a kender, take up the invatation. What,was the phrase 'willing to pay' a summoning spell? He quickly checks that his kender protection pouch fulled with interesting rocks, seashells and pieces of lint is obvious and easy to take.
Quickly, he follows the stranger, hoping the others would go away and leave him with the cash."I should become a lesbian"- Quiralanthalasa ,in a moment of deep reflection on her life.

The Dwarfs eye's look up from the pouch and he nods eagerly.

"Oh and by the way me name is Hosh."

06/19/2001 3:30 AM

Out in the ally Jaque waited for the group to assemble. Looking around to make sure no-one else was watching he said to the group, "I hope you all have strong hearts and an open mind." With that Jaque removed his veiled hat, revealing his Lupine face. "I am offering the platinum to anyone who can tke me to Wayreth, or direct me to someone else who can. I need to-"

Just then a fruit dealer came into the ally, seeing a chance to peddle his wares. when he saw the group of questionables, and especially Jaque's canine features, he ran off screaming, "Guards! Guards!"

Jaque smiled, a sinister looking emotion on a Lupine. "Well any who still want the money, follow me!" with that he sprinted out of the allyway drawing his jewled sabre and flintlock belt pistol.Arthur- Camelot!

The plump little dwarf sprinted off after the weird canine creature but he was not match for its speed so he setteled down into the old routine of "a steady pace gets you farther" and tried to keep Jaque in sight.

Kalia_Majere
06/19/2001 1:51 PM

Kista ran after Jaque, as she ran she saw the guards begin to assemble. she didn't think that they could simply out run them. quickly, she turned and brought one hand up to her lips.

"Gentle spirits that bring sleep, heed my command and make it deep!" she gestured before her, and a shimmering, transparant, blue wall formed in front of her. once it formed she turned and ran. the Guards hit the wall before the Dwarf did, the moment they hit it, the fell into a deep sleep.

"there...we can find a place to talk now...and we Don't Have To RUN!!!" she cried, stumbling.Everybody dies, but only a precious few truely LIVE....

06/19/2001 2:35 PM

Joe runs after the wolf-man, or whatever it is without looking back. Guards he could handle, but he wanted that platinum the wolf was promising."Stop running, my lupine friend!" he shouts to the figure running before him."The Guards can be handled, sit and talk for Hiddekul's sake!""I should become a lesbian"- Quiralanthalasa ,in a moment of deep reflection on her life.

Looking back Jaque noticed the rest lagging behind. Stopping he turned full around and watched the blue field dissapate before his eyes. His mouth hung open. Coming from a land of reason and machinery, Jaque had never seen this before. Certainly not all of these hairless monkey could summon up such forces... they sure weren't much physically.

Jaque jogged back to the group and his questioning eyes met eyes with questions of their own."Is this Magery?" he asked. Looking around he said, "This is most certainly what I was sent to find."
Reaching into a small pack he pulled out several more small pouches. "A bag of platinum to all who will accompany meme to the Tower where such mystics are commonplace."
Mony couldn't buy love. Couldn't buy friendship. Couldn't buy the zeal of a true follower. But looking around at the shine in their eyes Jaque could see that it would buy him a band escorts, and that was all he needed right now.Arthur- Camelot!

Ulthan was hopelessly lost, he had only been in this city for a couple of hours and yet here he was wandering aimlessly around dingy alleyways.
I am a Kagonesti I can find my way around many trackless forests with out any problem but here I am as useless as a new born. He thought to himself as he rounded another corner, which looked the same as the last five he had walked around.
I am going to die in a stinking alley he reasoned with a smirk. Just then he heard voices coming from up ahead, resisting the urge to run up and beg for their help he silently move towards them.

Umm a strange looking creature with a human, a dwarf and a Kender. Great he thought to himself if things couldn't get any worse he thought as he prepared to walk away.

It was then he saw the Elf,

Perhaps she would be able to help me leave this ugly city.

Walking out he approached the group.

"Excuse my interruptions my friends but I appear to be lost, I was hoping one of you kind people would be able to show me the way out of this city"

Taking some small pleasure at watching the surprised look's on their faces he waited for their answer.

06/21/2001 4:07 AM

"I suppose that makes us brothers in arms then eh?"

Ulthan returned the creatures smile.

"Wayreth? Yes I have heard of it.I am no mage and have never been there but it is by reputation very difficult to find. It is believed or so I have heard to have the ability to move, still the mages have no difficulty finding it so I would recommend finding a mage to show you the way. But if you can get me out of this cursed maze of allies then I will help you find your Forrest or indeed a way through it."

06/21/2001 11:44 AM

Hosh looked at the bag of jingling coins, greed plainly shown in his eyes. "Yes," he said softly barely breathing,"I will help you in this quest, for this small price of course."

He looked up, but seeing no reaction on the face of the strange creature he quickly grabbed a bag and stuffed it down deep into a hidden pocket of the shirt under his hard leather armor.

Kalia_Majere
06/21/2001 11:45 AM

Kista smiled at the stranger and turned her attention back to the Lupine.

"well The forest of Wayereth does have a reputation, you don't find it, it finds you..." She pondered the thought for a moment.

"well my friend Kalia might be able to help you...you see she is a special kind of mage, a silver robe, she's also a dragon if we could find her, she could lead us to the forest...she probably won't take us to the tower personally, mages can be kinda tricky like that, we would have to bear the forest by ourselves, as kind of a test of sorts...but I believe that she would lead us there. at the very least."Everybody dies, but only a precious few truely LIVE....

Jaque laughed out lound. "Pssha! Dragons you say. Come now, I've seen enough superstition today, don't bring dragons into the mix."

Looking around the Lupine saw no laughter on the faces of those present. "All right" he said to the Kagonesti "we'll help you out of the city, you help me find the Tower, and this... Dragon"Arthur- Camelot!

OOC Sorry I haven't had time to reply. Oh one more question is the lupine still there?

BIC: *Nazz comes running after the group. In his hand is an map.* Geez I look away for second and you run away from me. One could infer something there. But as I was saying before you all ran off on me, I have a map. *Unrolls it.* The tower seems to be that way. *He point to the left. He looks at the map again.* Oh wait, oh no. *Turns the map around.* There we are. *points to the right. Is oblivious to all that is around to him.*Nobody can be right all the time. Well I can!

06/22/2001 6:11 PM

Kista smiled and waved for everyone to follow her. once outside the city walls, she headed east, about two miles out, they all saw the camp, the tents, and the campfire.

Kista called out and was answered by a young woman with silvery hair and bright Golden eyes. She was dresed in long silver robes, and was chatting amiably with an Eagle who was perched on a low banch.

"Ho there...welcome friends, My name is Kalia, Or Crystalamira to some she said smiling amusingly at Joe. You are all welcome to spend the night here with us...What can I help you with?"Everybody dies, but only a precious few truely LIVE....

Hosh looked up and down at each member of the group. These people are crazy! he thought to himself.

"Oh well," he mumbled to himself "at least I got me some money just to go along on this little trip. He grinned as he heard the bag of coins slightly jingle when he dropped to the ground with a loud plop! Searching into his pack he found some rations and began to chew on them contently.

He sat in the trees on the perimeter of the camp. His legs had cramped hours ago, and he wasn't even sure if he could stand up. But he watched. And his watching had not been in vain. The elf had brought back a crew. They were ripe for the picking. Soon, he would make his move."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

06/26/2001 9:30 PM

Kalia smiled at joe and ignored his idiotic question. she paused and turned to Jaque.

"so, you seek the tower of high sorcery, Might I ask why?" she tilted her head and studied the lupine carefully, her golden eyes steady.

Kista ran up to Kalia and whispered ugently in her ear. When she finished, Kalia looked over at the Lupine creature.

"so, I hear that Kista told you what I was, I can see in your eyes that you do not understand or believe...If you want proof, all you need do is ask....I can get you to the forest, but the forest I cannot penetrate with others not of the orders. The forest is a mini test you see, those who cannot make it through are not worthy to step foot within the towers. but I must ask why you seek the tower."Everybody dies, but only a precious few truely LIVE....

Breathing deeply Ulthan grinned to himself. It felt good to be out of the city and under the tree's again. Looking up into the branches of the tree's he was surprised to see a foot hanging down from a branch.
Moving to the opposite side of the camp where he could see a covered out line of someone hiding in the uppermost branches. Drawing one of his swords under the pretences on cleaning it he settled down to watch the mysterious observer.

Joe_Ghostbuster
06/29/2001 4:10 PM

Joe see's that he isn't needed, and walks away from the dragon,elf, and wolf-whatever it is.
The rouge notices Uthan watching something up in a tree. Some animal fit for eating, perhaps? Joe, hungry, watches the tree with a dagger ready to throw.

"Well it's a long story. You see-" Jaque cut off and sniffed. Narrowing his eyes he drew his pistol and took aim just above the feet. "Out with you villian, or you'll feel the sting of lead in your stomache.

The one had moved when the first had come near him. He could tell they were aware he was there, and he would not be able to rob them now. He wasn't leaving yet, though, for this might turn out to be quite a game. He could circle for hours or even leave if need be. He could have the most fun with the wolfman. He new the thing could smell him, but they would have to risk their lives to come into the forest to find him. He continued to watch, peering from his new location."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"

Jaque sniffed. Whoever or whatever it was had moved again, Jaque could sense the general direction of the creature but not the exact location. The underbrush and herbs were providing too much cover, mixing the smells into a hazy mush. Jaque decided to try the proven method of all explorers into primitive lands. Taking aim he shot his pistol into the brush near where he smelled the creature. The sound of the flintlock pistol was that of a thunderclap, the lead shot screamed out making a slight whistling sound. Re-loading the pistol Jaque shouted, "T'was a warning shot. This... magic stick never misses it's mark unless I want it to. The next shot you will find in your chest my friend." Taking aim, Jaque hoped this would be enough.Arthur- Camelot!

Kalia walked over to jaque and pulled out a handful of fine black powder...she could smell it on him, and she could tell that the so called "Magic stick" was the source....

"we mages call it flash powder, Its used mainly by tricksers, and theives, to cause distractions, I am curious, how it works...but maybe I can scare off our little uninviting guest.

Kalia stood away from the group, mumering somthing to herself, with a bright flash of light, she seemed to grow and transform before them all.

the woman "Kalia" was gone, replaced by Crystalamira, the Crystal Dragon. Each and every scale glimmered brightly in the sun, her wings, featherd, not leather membrane, where white irridescant. her head was crowned with five pairs of pearly horns. golden eyes bright and perceptive.

Crys opened her mouth slightly and breathed in, scenting the intruder.

With a loud roar, she stretched her wings and raised her claw arms, tail slashing

"I warn you intruder...I am not to be trifled with! It is your choice, you can leave, or fight me!! and if you are armed like our fiend here...know this, very little can even scratch my scales let alone penetrate...this is a warning!!"

Joe watches in suprise as the prospective meal is suddenly turned into a danger, then as his employer uses a wand. Starnge, using one of the few charges on a wand for a 'warning'.
He then sighs as Kalia once again turns into a big scary dragon. She was starting to bore him, turning up everywhere he went with her 'secret' she tells everyone.

Hosh muttered a curse and turned away from the women who turned into a huge dragon. Crossing his fingers he wished for it to go away then after a count to ten he looked back around, and it was still there-bigger than he remembered-so he stood up and said "I've gone mad I tell ye!"
With that he walked to the nearest tree and pounded his head against the hard trunk. Cursing all the while"I kill you in your FACE!!"

/ooc Same for Hosh, I mean he's just a little dwarf and seeing a dragon for him is not an every day occurrence or even an every century occurrence for that matter:)

Kalia, resuming her human form shrugged. and watched as the dwarf freaked out and the lupine creature, faint.

"you know, if you can't handle me, I don't see how you can handle the forest of Wayereth." she said softly as she turned back to her camp.

Kista watched her go and turned to the group, sadly shaking her head. "you know, She's right..."

she continued to mutter under her breath as she walked over to Jaque and pulled out a small vial from her pocket, pulling the cork from it, she waved it under Jaques nose, allowing the pungent fumes to be breathed in.

Kalia meanwhile, was tearing down her camp, muttering angrily. in moments the camp was packed and she was ready to leave, with or without the group, she didn't care.

With a sudden screech, a white Eagle landed on Kalia's arm, The Raptor chittered to Kalia for a moment then flew off. Kalia paused and nodded to the group. "you can have what ever you find useful here. I won't be needing it."

With that, she turned back into the dragon and left the group. They could find the forest on their own.

"Damn!!" Kista cried as she watched her friend leave. "Well there goes that chance. finding the forest is hard, staying within its borders is even harder. without a mage from the inside wanting us there, the forest will lead us right back out again...geesh...how did I get mixed up with you!?"

Kista continued to rant as Warrl, her Grass cat Paced beside her, growling deep in his throat.Everybody dies, but only a precious few truely LIVE....

A thin man wearing faded gray robes leans against a tree at the edge of the recently dismantled camp, puffing on a tar stained wooden pipe with a wry smile on his face. "I would have announced myself earlier, but I have no love for wyrms," he said to no one in particular, walking around the camp, sizing each of them up from the depths of his hood.

He spent almost a full minute studying the lupine, before removing the gray hood, revealing a pale face crisscrossed with scars. His one good eye gleamed with green brilliance. Inside the ruptured hole of his other eye, a multifaceted black jewel was fused together with his flesh. He had long, straggly red hair, and a rough, uneven beard.

"I overheard you mention Wayreth forest, stranger." he said, taking another puff on his pipe. "My name is Vin, and I can lead you near it, for I have tried to reach the Tower several times myself, although I have never actually found it. The Conclave has a way of keeping renegades like me out of their precious libraries."

Turning around from his head banging Hosh noticed the dragon was gone. "Phew, I knew I must have gone mad!" He stated in a relieved tone.

"Well...uhmm...ahem, what do we do now?" The pudgy hill dwarf asked the world at large.

Kista looked over at the newcomer then at the Dwarf.

"that is a very good Question. Without a Tower Mage, we have little to no hope of making it to the Forest, not to mention staying within its borders...You see, that forest seems to have a mind of its own. The only way to get in is to have a tower mage ask the permission of the council. and as you can see, none of us here are Tower Mages...I am a wilder elf, therefore I use the magic of the Earth itself, the spirits of each and every thing. Tower mages, even the renegades us the magic of the Three moons, each moon has their particular order, the white, the red, and the Black."

She paused, and thoughtfully scratced Warrl's head, the Grass cat Purred and rubbed his cheeck in to her palm.

"I personally know only two tower mages...Kalia who just refused to take us, and My Cousin, Mirror, but I dont know where she is...we parted company a month ago..."

Everybody dies, but only a precious few truely LIVE....

OOC: Hey ,I don't have anything against you, Kalia, honest. I'm just roleplaying a very cynical and rather mean guy. He doesn't like anyone, believe me. No need to go. And besides that...um...where'd the dwarf come from?
Joe thinks a bit. He could help the wold-man...but it would take some work, and it would reveal something. Oh well...the man was paying him. You have to respect steel.
He helps Jaque up, then sits near him. "Friend wolf, I think I can help. But...it will cost you."

The smelling salts had awakened Jaque, but his head didn't fully clear until Joe leaned down next to him. Jaque saw no dragon and sighed in relief, he thought he had gone mad. Listening to Joe his tail wagged, he liked this one's style, straight to the point, honest, business like. He spoke a bit gravelly from the residue of fear, "Tell me human, what do you have in mind?" He rattled his purse for a reminder of coinage.Arthur- Camelot!

07/07/2001 4:54 PM

OOC: You were there at the start...ah, never mind then.
Joe smiles as Jaque's reaches for his coin pouch, though the smile fades a bit as he sees something moving beneath the Wolfmans clothes. He prays to Hiddekul, Chemosh, and Reorx that it was his tail. (Sorry, couldn't resist,lol)
"Yes, well..." he says, a bit nervous from that thing,whatever it was. "I have contacts in the Tower. In fact, I knew somone who's studying there right now...or at least she was a while ago. With a little...persuasion," he looks sideways at Jaque's money pouch, "She could be here to guide us today."

Kista watched Joe carefuly, she had recieved too many warnings from Kalia to take anything he said lightly, He may be a theif, and a con man, but Joe tended to know what was going on. She would allow nothing that he said or did slip by her, The Patfinder tribe pride would not allow her to.

Kista walked over to the dwarf, as Warrl stood close to Joe, using her link between her and the Grass cat to listen in on his conversation.

with a slight Humph, she sat down on the ground, and rummaged through her pack, making sure she had all that she needed for the trek ahead.Everybody dies, but only a precious few truely LIVE....

OOC: You don't have to be a kid, just think like one.lol
Joe takes Jaque's words as an agreement. "Nowhere, she can track us down right here.This will only take a few minutes."
Joe carefully takes a pouch out of his jacket. He empties the contents onto his hand, then throws them firmly in the air. "Fairy dust." he comments to the group. "She should be here any second now."
A minute later, a fairy flies over the clearing. She notices the group and lands near them. "Heya all! Joe! Where ya wanna go?"
OOC2: Don't worry, i'm not multi-ing, this is just se we can get to the Tower already.Then she's gone.
