Spoiler:
A brief bit of explanation for those who aren't keeping up or are catching up. The timeline of one of the groups got segregate from the rest due to their actions, not yelling just explaining, and so while Groups 1, 3, and 4 are at roughly 2 PM when they link back up here, in this thread, at the inn... Raver, Zeiss, Tabran, and Higaide were out in the fields past the 2 PM mark and then encountered some trouble, and so at roughly 3 PM Raver is going to come bursting into the inn. I know part of that scene was already roleplayed but I'd like to erase that from the board, so to speak, and start this thread at the 2 PM mark with the 3 groups convening and discussing.

Spoiler:
so im going to re-posting what i said in session 01 post for clarity sake, now its time for that bed i was talking about 4 hours ago

*so when every one gets back (my team excluded) my character will say to them in a hushed voice*
"You know i think we have walked in on some political ladder climbing, let me explain what my team found first, while asking the locals about what's been happening, it seams that the only farms been hit are the ones that aren't paying for the Guardian protection, no one was killed, no hostages were taken not even loot was taken, the last attack they just ran in and tried to burn the crops, but when they encountered resistance they turned tail and ran for it, which doesn't fit with what the bill says about them.

*takes a sip from his drink*

so after speaking to the last raid victim half of my team insisted on scouting ahead so i came back to make sure that what we had learned out there was at least relayed to the rest of you guys, also while ive been waiting here ive overheard that the Mayor is for the chop even thou he is keeping everything running smooth and making the town lots of money"

"so how about the rest of you?"

"That goes a way towards explaining a few things we found out," remarks Kolson, "The mayor originally hired Oakheart, but they seem to have had a falling out recently. In fact, it's safe to say they are down right hostile. But that is when things get weird. I was so sure he'd jump at the chance to undermine a political rival but when we implored him to tell us his side of the story, he slammed his office door right in our faces. Wouldn't even think of working with us."

Kolson pauses and takes a bite of his spiced chicken with dates and washes it down with some water.

"Mmm, that's good. Anyway, get this. He places no small measure of blame on the local militia, which has withdrawn from their normal patrol routes to guard the town proper. The new patrols are extra long and the men and women of the militia are exhausted and irritable. I don't have any proof but I suspect they're being softened up. Probably for whatever this so called Guardian has planned for the town."

Ashakel walks in together with Javan, as the inn is slowly filling with the rest of the guild. "Wild beasts are easier to talk to than these bloody officials. Somebody get me a drink... And better make that two."

Sethos and his group wander in and sit down at the slowly filling table.

"I hope you guys have some better information than us"

He sits down and composes himself before speaking.

"There's a fellow named Hotawa who's the favourite to replace Zigund as mayor and his supporters are hoping to appeal to the governor when he gets here in two days" He takes a breath.

"That's about it, I'm beginning to think that the gnolls are simply acting on their own rather than as players in a conspiracy, what do you guys think?"

"one thing you forgot to mention sethos, the man the townsfolk are looking to hire as the new mayor has made his fortune on the same type of crops that are currently being burned on the farms around town, figs and dates. There is still the possibility of a conspiracy. Hotawa looking to remove competition? or even showing that he has personal stake in the gnoll attacks to make himself look more favorable as a candidate for mayor. although, I'd much prefer to sort that out at a later time, we have comrads to save!" At that moment Araiguna lept from his chair, and rushed out the door and started heading toward the area where the battle with the gnolls was taking place. when he gets there, Araiguna makes a point of scouting out the area by staying hidden in the surrounding bushes/foliage.

Whis Kor slams his fist down on the table upon hearing the reports.

"It's even worse than I thought! Those who profit off of such things make me sick" he spits. He takes a swig of drink, calms down a bit, and looks around at the group.

"The only member of the court we were able to speak with was Lunka of Skeer. She's opposed to the bill and has some distaste towards the accommodating mayor, but that's about it. The intelligence matches up with yours: the gnolls are simply razing the date and fig farms around the outer reaches of the city."

His brow furrows a bit as he stares in to his drink.

"We met personally with the 'Guardian' Oakheart" he says with a mocking tone, "and judging by what has been presented and what I have seen of him, an extortionist of the worst sort. He's obviously been lying about his encounter where he slew 20 Gnolls, if the reports from the farms that Zabran presents are accurate. I could not even find signs of recent combat on his armaments."

Whis Kor looks up, seeming a little weary and older than normal.

"I've seen his kind before in my own platoon... Sometimes there is more trouble from the local garrison than what they're claiming to protect the citizens from. They were punished appropriately, but the damage had been done already."

He suddenly spins around and scans the room.

"Where is Zeiss' team? Did they tell anyone they would be late? No, I don't think so. Well, it appears we'll be waiting for them, assuming they haven't found some other opportunity and headed towards greener fields instead."

Ashakel listens carefully to what the others are saying. His mood is slightly better after a few sips of his drink. "Well, it appears to me we're also gonna have to bash some other types of heads around here, not just the gnoll ones. It seems the gnolls are just the tools of this extortionist, but what we don't know is... What's in it for them, if they're not getting any loot? And how is he controlling them?"

"Easy, you can't simply go around cracking skulls. That will do little more than land you a spot in the local jail, or worse, the chopping block. If there's something more going on here, the best course of action would be to pursue it through the local authorities. The authority we have been granted extends to killing Gnolls only at the moment. If they happen to allow us to take action, so be it."

Sethos, or anyone from team 1:
Spoiler:
actually, it was a tariff being imposed on dates and figs to restrict shipping making it harder for the farmers and merchants. and it was the current mayor who wanted to impose it. but seeing as im already out the door i didn't say this.

Whis Kor turns to Sethos with an expression of interest.

"Oh, really now? It would not be incredibly unusual for an import tariff to exist on dates and figs, seeing how it is their primary product and they likely want it to stay that way domestically. What's this talk of a change? Try to remember details; they are important. Sudden, major changes in that policy could be a signal of certain ... things."

Turning to Whis, "I believe it was a tariff being imposed on dates and figs to restrict shipping, it's being brought in by the mayor apparently. It's almost like he's deliberately trying to make unpopular political moves"

After sitting quietly Caladrius speaks up.
"The two people who appear to be the ring leads of this little charade are Mayor to be Hotawa are Guardian' Oakheart. If my speculation is correct, whatever is going to happen will be happening when Hotawa arrives in two days, not four. It would also not surprise me this little errand for us was to get us out of the city while the city was being taken over"

"An export tariff on those?"

Whis Kor looks very surprised at the sound of that.

"There's few reasons for that and none of them I like. I don't suppose you found out the stated reason for this? I can see it making some sense to a town preparing for war, but it would be extremely odd for... Were there any other tariffs being introduced or was this the only one? That could tell us a lot."

After hearing what Caladrius had to say, the troll stands up and spits on the floor. "To take over the city? *spit* Well that just might be why the gnolls are so cooperative, they're probably expecting some nifty prize after that!"

"We don't know anything" says Sethos in a strained tone as he stands, "This is all just speculation at this point, what are you suggesting we do when we go to visit him? Make him admit to something that we have no evidence of? Just rumors and hearsay? I mean for the love of the land just think!" He falls back into his seat, exhausted and annoyed, after a short while of silence he speaks again "Sorry, about that, rough morning" He laughs a little and rubs his eyes in fatigue.

This is the moment Raver bursts into the inn and informs the group of the shit storm brewing further a field. Sethos stands up with Araiguna with a sigh as they make for the door "This is meant to be the easy part damnit" he mumbles as the sunshine once again dowses his face.

"It's never as easy as you hope." Hanuel follows after Sethos quickly, motioning for Dara to hop down beside them. "I'll catch up to them on Dara, it should be a little faster." Hanuel hops on Dara's back, the aspect in it's quadrupedal form, and rushes off towards the field, crossbow drawn.
