Rory scarcely finds himself wanting for spiteful words or speeches. This is one of those moments as he listens with stunned silence, contemplating the conviction of Higaide's repulsion, and the backfire of refusing to admit he had let his anger get the better of him.

"Let's just call it day. We still have Sethos. To find him, we don't need to ask the humans. Someone must have seen him or heard his name. He's a White Mage and a burun who likes to slum it with the dregs, shouldn't be too hard to find."

If it's still light out, Higaide will proceed with his original plan and go check those plantations.

And Javan will atttempt to find Higs and Rory by tracking. If he fails to do that, he'll go back to his original plan of getting info on Sethos' location.

Edit: He'll also mention Sethos' Pipe of Awesome and/or his smoking habits in order to help filter out possible candidates. And before people think that PoA is Javan-speech for the guy's ever-herbing pipe, that's the actual item's name.

rest of the day:
I'll go ask around for someone matching Sethos' description: his appearance, plus he's a white mage who doesn't consider himself above than most races, which is how I'd put it politely with any other burun to avoid damning them with faint praise.

GA check and Diplomacy, and I will take my time on both, if there's still time in the day to do that.

We should probably do one or the other, rather than force Arch to fork this thing yet again.

Javan, if you'll recall, actually was run into by the two. He followed them back to the barn and was present for all of the above.

In that case, all is well but I can't RP right now and will probably go NPC for the last time this semester if everything goes right.

Javan decided to remain quiet and not get involved while Higaide and Rory worked their differences, then after noticing them calming down pointed out he was also searching for Sethos' location, and that it would be a good idea to give it priority. Hopefully Sethos would be inclined to help them with information, maybe even some help.

Higaide will go back into town and GI for Sethos. I'll avoid the part we just fled from.

Both Higaide and Rory, separately, succeed at their respective GI checks.

Rory:
It seems a Burun matching the description, though going by a slightly different name of Sethos'Lirisk, has been rumored to be active in the entire area. He passes from town to town periodically, apparently as something of a spokesperson for the Alterations. While not the most charismatic of people, his simple honest has been winning over support. There is a rumor that he doesn't stay in a town anymore but lives on a plantation, directions to which Rory receives.

Higaide:
Apparently some trouble-maker Burun by the name of Sethos'Lirisk has been stirring up hot-topic issues in the area, not just this city but the neighboring ones. Whoever he is he's officially wanted by the local constabulary for disturbing the peace, though they're not certain where he's based in. There is a reward for information regarding him or for bringing him in, alive and unharmed of course.

Javan beeps and boops his way through the barn, elbows suddenly unable to function.

Upon exchanging information we dug up between us, Rory will suggest waiting until nightfall(perhaps right now) to slink out of town on foot and visit the plantation, taking a side road or avoiding well-traveled roads altogether and going by our fake names. Not one person can even get a whiff of why we're here or what people we've made enemies of, or that we know Sethos or intend to visit him.

Be aware that sneaking into a plantation at night like this will make them treat us as enemies if we're found. These are the people we're trying to help or get help from.

And Stealth will only work for me alone. If you're found, i'm found.

I just want to sneak out of town, K. When we get to the plantation, we'll knock on the front door.

Fair enough, but my Stealth still can't help you. And really, we just went INTO town and talked to a ton of folks in order to GI. If anyone was gonna make us, they would already have. That said, i suppose i can wait for nightfall, if it's not burning a lot of daylight.

It can, by scouting a path and leading us down a street or alley where there isn't anyone about. You have a point though, and we are in a barn on the outskirts of town. I guess no one would really notice if we left during the day.

Night falls. The trio has no real problems exiting the town, aside from a few suspicious glances. Neither of the moons rise in the sky tonight, making it exceptionally dark to travel, which causes more than a couple occasional stumbles on a root or rock unnoticed.

The destination in question is about a 6 hour trip at current, eventually leaving the eastern edge of the Thrush and returning to more normal terrain. It's still quite cold at night, and the ground is unpleasant to walk upon, but they make it there without further incident.

The plantation itself is, of course, quiet and dark by the time they get there. There are a few guards on patrol with lanterns, though given the oppressive night the light they cast does not reach overly far. They do not seem to have yet noticed the party before the party notices them.

Higaide steps forward into earshot of the guards.

The guard shakes off a rather thick layer of dust and whirls about at the sound of the noise, weapons drawn. After a few moments he and a few others, all Humans, have gathered over by Rory and Higaide. At the mere sight of the two they've lowered their weapons, and are excitedly asking if they're here to join the others.

Javan wonders for a moment if they are not aware of his presence somehow or are just too happy to see follow humans at all.

The vision of suspicion quick turning into relief and excitement still made Javan smile tho. Hopefully they had some of that left for the fairy, and his clothing should give them a good first impr-- oh wait, they are from a different culture. Ah frell.

The guards guide Higaide and Rory further towards the plantation, talking excitedly about how much they're looking forward to joining the others, how much opportunity the mountains sound like they have, and how much they're looking forward to having a safe place to rest for the first time in months. You get the strong impression the guards don't like having to be guards, finding the concept unpleasant.

After a few minutes, one of them jolts, having just noticed Javan, so focused had they been on their fellow Humans. They immediately brandish weapons fearfully and demand to know what 'it' is and what its business is.

"Whoa there, he's with us!" - Higaide raises a arm between them and Javan, as a gesture to ward off violence - "Javan, introduce yourself, will you?"
