By the way, as an aside, Sareth was doing a lot of the actual running of the Exchange for some time prior to you guys getting back. Just pointing it out.

*facepalm*

They kidnapped him because they thought he was the true Warlord. Oh well.

*statement of fact with no passive-aggressiveness present* K, I said Lady Lightmane was already deposed. The coup already happened. They're fortifying their power right now, whoever they are. I'm not going to do anything until you get back to Holtburg, which is why I'm killing time by gathering information. 

By the way Arch, I'm going to clarify something: before leaving the warehouse where Sareth was held, I'm still going to quickly check the crates. I'm telling you again because our posts kind of drowned out this action.

I'll edit my post where all my actions were written and add this to the list to make it easier for you.

@Rory: The only information you have on Osteth is fifteenth-hand from people rumor mongering in the capital city of a nation that's currently isolationist towards everything external. What I'm saying is no exact confirmation is going to come.

Zeiss, if my next decision didn't involve the possible life or death of Sareth, i wouldn't ask, but have you any objections to me using Hustle? The timing seems reasonable, and having the horse die on me halfway through doesn't seem very efficient.

Yeah, sure. Just consider going on a forced march if it looks like you might cut it short.

I freely admit I have no idea how to respond to that. I'll come up with something I swear.

Man, I can imagine Higaide wearing a top hat and a monocle in this scene. Oh, and playing with the tip of his marvelous fake moustache while speaking his lines in the most pompous tone possible in order to counter the Lord Elf.

Zeiss, when we're ready to speak to the refugees, I'll want you with me for your 'moral support'. Possibly Kolson too, if he's here by then.

Sure Rory. As long as we present them with the option of going to Osteth. On my side, I'll offer them to stay in the Veil if they wish to. I don't want them to feel like we're throwing them out. Once this is done, we can get an estimate of how much we will need to move this bunch to the great engineers' country. I suspect it will also take a long time for us to set this up.

Also, Higaide... I believe in you. If you die today, we'll remember you. Always. In our hearts. And stuff.

See? See! You're okay. Sareth will put you back on your feet in no time. If he wasn't also downed.

By the way, Sareth is a Lord Elf. Here he is: http://i.imgur.com/fZKOGgM.jpg

We'll see. At the very least, he'll be able to get you your 4 Plat back.

If i ever get back on my feet, i'd very much like to rip the 5th one off the racist dickwad's broken fingers myself.

My response is to say using Deception to try and judge whether they're lying to you, but your Deception is low. So, maybe Diplomacy to convince them not to double-cross you instead, and find out if they intend to or not with a success, would have been an alternative.

In any case, I hope you can deflect those arrows most likely aimed at Sareth, they don't care about him. I mean logic dictates that they take you down as many pegs first, but try to block any that come right at him. Don't forget your magic Monk self-heal ability!

Well, thanks for the encouragement, guys.

See, i knew. I knew i was gonna dream about this. I rarely ever dream about anything anymore, but when there's something that gets me anxious during the day, i just know i'm gonna dream about it later. And with the clogged up nose that made me wake up about 3 or 4 times, it was pretty much guaranteed that i would never get past that phase the whole frigging night. So the last 8 hours have been me dreaming about being unconscious after just barely getting the Exit off, wondering where Sareth was and how we were gonna deal with the Lord Elf asshole squad.

Weird, i know.

Whoops, hang on. I went to the previous page, saw Arch asking for Higaide's HP and AC, and I forgot that he'd already posted what happened. Way to go, K! Well, they did get payment for Sareth, a whole platinum bar. 1/5th of what they asked for! Great job, man! Well, if it wasn't dangerous to go alone before, it sure is now. But we love complications, don't we? I mean, you could have paid the whole amount, but you walked away with 400 gold that you wouldn't have otherwise.

That manager has a theoretical degree in corporate espionage.

While we're there...

As an FYI: at this point, I'm just waiting for Gretta to show up with her minions so we can attack the Royal District. If we're successful (meaning we don't die), we can do the time skip afterwards. Of course, we have to wait on Kolson and Javan to finish their current mission. The bandits' leader is lying by the way. Big liar. It's written on his face. In the meantime, I'll manage the Exchange.

@Rory: No I actually rather like your plan, I actually felt bad for not having much to respond to it yet since it's just a plan but I wanted to say something.

As for Zeiss... we're kind of waiting for Kolson to catch up to you guys since I'm preeetty sure things will start colliding soon.
