The Jade Sea

The dwarf greets Miklos with a hearty nod, glancing behind the Mage expectantly “So where’s Nicolai? Oh wait, don’t tell me… No doubt he’s lurking about where ever that rabble-rouser took off to, right?”

Miklos turned to the dwarf, “I have no fear for Nicolai. He’s keeping an eye on the agitator and will shadow him – hopefully he can pick up valuable clues as to whether this guy is just a one-off or part of the greater conspiracy.”

“Well, let him lurk a bit longer. We have a task to do.” And Feldard explains about the message from Theosius and how they are to deliver a package from the ship the Jade Sea to the Senator.

Miklos listened as they explained about the delivery for Theosuis. “OK, but I am reticent leaving Nicolai without support for too long. He has no way of getting back to us and still maintaining a watch. Unless he corners some street urchin and sends us news. Perhaps, we could pop by the hovel en-route and pick up Nicolai – or at least get some news and leave him to it? Although, he might not be there when we pass so I’d suggest leaving him a message here just in case.” Miklos added.

“I have already considered that Miklos. Nicolai will follow us to the Jade Sea then on the the Senator, if he draws a blank on the agitator. Good to see you in one piece though. That was quiet a fight you city folk can put up.” Maruc grinned. “Shall we go?”

“Haste is our ally. Let us waste no more time.” No doubt Saeth’s distrust of the last member of the delvers coloured her opinion more than she cared to admit.

“Yes, come on, it shouldn’t take long,” grumbled the impatient dwarf.

And so, the group left the inn and headed towards the docks, leaving Nicolai on his own to surveil the riot instigator.

The streets remained relatively empty in the aftermath of the riots. Increased patrols by the city guard have been supplemented by the duke with troops from the surrounding area. After a long walk, they reached the docks and spoke to the harbormaster. He told them that the Jade Sea had not docked yet, but was due to arrive soon.

After a short while, the Jade Sea was finally visible toward the edge of the shiny, blue horizon. By the time it docked at the wharf, it was getting late. The sun was setting and the remaining dusklight started to filter out of the sky.

5 responses to “The Jade Sea

  1. Saeth Tegau

    Saeth stepped to the side of the boarding plank and scanned the scene, counting sailors and swords, as well as looking for anyone on shore who might have their eyes on the ship. She said nothing, assuming that one of the others, especially the priest, would be better at speaking to the humans on board the ship than she.

    Given her experiences, Saeth will probably pay primary attention to people who are armed, perhaps more attention than might be ideal…

  2. Feldard (Dwf 1)

    Feldard didn’t approach the ship as it docked. Instead he’d hung back stating he’d keep a lookout. Truth of it was, Feldard had a healthy respect for large bodies of water – anything larger than a wash basin fit into that catergory! There was no way he be caught any nearer the water than he already was. He kept his feet on firm ground.
    He watched along the wharf-front, fidgeting with the handle of his battle axe more than usual, and glanced over when the deckhand called out to the others in the party. He could see Saeth eyeing up those aboard – for an Elf she wasn’t half bad. Certainly, wiser than he’d have first given her credit for.
    He was too far to hear much of the conversation after the initial greeting, given they were smart enough to not be yelling their business all over the docks, but still he kept watch for others who might be taking interest in the party and the ship.

  3. Maruc (Clr 1)

    “We have come the collect a certain apckage for a certain Thaytian Artisan to deliver to a certain senator. We were lead to believe that there are folk who would attempt to hinder this transaction so an element of caution must be exercised.” Maruc said patiently.

  4. Miklos (Mu 1)

    Miklos held back and did not board the ship. He kept his eyes peeled for anyone taking undue interest in the party or the collection. He didn’t approach the ship.

    Nicolai’s caution must be wearing off on me, he thought.
