Torenescu’s Convoy

The elf’s eyes went up at Torensu’s words. At least that left no–or little, at least–ambiguity in the contents of the ‘package’. That was comforting in a way, although it suggested a more volatile cargo than she’d imagined.

Completing a final scan, she slid over to Miklos’ side, and spoke in hushed tones. “Is this a name you’ve heard before, and does he look a Toranescu? And why this level of secrecy, has he been exiled from the city, or any particular enemies?” Saeth didn’t really suppose it mattered–one faction’s gold seemed the equal to any others, nor did any one faction seem markedly better than any other–but it was always good to know who you chose as possible enemies.

Still fidgeting with his axe handle, Feldard was somewhat puzzled when the deckhand didn’t return with a package but another human. “What tomfoolery was this?,” he grumped to himself and looked towards Miklos with a questioning shrug. “What do you make of this?”

After Saeth, Maruc, Miklos and Feldard held some quiet discussion amongst themselves, the group agreed to escort the man. Feldard frowned and turned to eye the human, Simion. “We’ll get you there in one piece. Now let us move. You got a cloak or something to cover yerself? Might make ye blend better…”

“I’m quite sure that won’t be necessary at this time of night, provided we move with haste,” said Simion as he followed his newly appointed bodyguards.

As the group makes their way down the pier, a group of 10 ragged looking men approaching the dock. The men carry swords and clubs but do not raise them. Despite their weaponry, they do not appear to be hostile.

    The elf gazed at the ragged bandits approaching, and loosened her blade in its sheath, confident she could get it out faster than they could cover this distance.

    “You say you came here in secret?”

    She didn’t move from her position as the rearguard. Dwarves may not be good for much, but the one in the lead could certainly slow down this rabble if they attacked.

    If it looks like it will go to combat, could we get a rough map of the area–walls we can back up against, and whatnot? Nothing fancy needed, of course.

  3. Feldard (Dwf 1)

    The dwarf eyed the 10 men warily and loosened his axe from its binding. He held it in a non-aggressive position but was ready to bring in up at a moments notice. He looked to Simion. “Friends of yours?”

    He strode ahead toward the group of men. “Who goes there? And what manner of business brings 10 armed men to the docks this late at night?”
    As he called out, he looked for the one that would most likely be their leader. Take that one down first and the others might scatter. That was the idea of it, if it came down to battle.
