Searching For Akarios

“Time to pay a visit to Akarios then. At the docks you say? Good fortune master Aristo.” Miklos turned on his heel. “Lets go then. its our best lead before we tackle Zweis.”

Miklos lead the way to the docks. Maruc opened and closed his mouth, shrugged his shoulders and followed the the young Mage’s wake. “No time like the present then.” Feldard grumbled slightly—he still hadn’t gotten the wine he wanted. But he too along with Nicolai and Saeth followed along.

Making their way towards the docks, they felt a new atmosphere of unrest growing in the streets. As they neared the harbor, Saeth and Nicolai, the most aware of their surroundings, had the strange feeling that they were being watched.

Once at the port, they sought out the Harbour Master. As Feldard approached, Nicolai and Saeth stood behind and scanned the area for potential trouble. “Good day, sir. I was wondering if you could help me? Would Akarios be working today? I’ve been charged with passing on an important message to him” True enough, the dwarf certainly had a message to pass onto the man. “I was told he works here at the docks. Would you be able to point him out to me?”

“Akarios? Haven’t seen him for a few days now. Mighty strange him not showing up for work, this being busy season and all. Heard he likes to spend time down at the Salty Sea Dog. If you see him tell him to get his red-haired arse back to work.”

  2. Feldard (Dwf 1)

    (this’ll likely be my last post for while – traveling..)
    He tried hard to keep smirking at hearing that Akarios was a red haired. After getting directions to the Inn from the Harbour Master, he nods to the man. “I’ll pass on the message.”
    He then proceeds to head to the Salty Sea Dog, blissfully unwary of being watched.

    At the Inn, he’ll saunter on in, glancing about to see if he can spot the red-head amongst it’s patrons.

    If not, he’ll head to the bar and inquire with the barkeep. “Good day sir, the Harbour Master has me looking for Akarios. Have you seen him recently?”

  3. Saeth Tegau

    Red hair–that was significant, if Saeth recalled the lady Vorloi’s home correctly. She struggled to recall if any of the assailants downed earlier enjoyed a similar complexion. The elf shivered slightly, wondering if Akarios was one of the pairs of eyes she could feel watching her.

    Still, enough incidents with the Veils, and eventually one of them would let slip a clue. The thought that she mightn’t survive too many more incidents never crossed her mind.

  4. At last, someone with red hair. Hopefully linked to the Vorloi’s murder.

    “I suggest we make our way to this Saltly Sea Dog, and look for this Akarios.”

  5. Maruc

    Maruc agreed and headed for the pub with the others. Hmm the Salty Sea Dog didn’t look particularly inviting but still Maruc wasn’t really used to dockside taverns. The heady smell of salt sir and rotting fish and tar seemed to distill in the thick air of cluttered taproom. Old sawdust stained with spillages gave the place an unkempt look. Maruc allowed his vision to become accustomed to the dim light filtering through the small window. The fire was buring low but the place felt too stuffy anyway, it could do with a good airing and a whitewash.

    He scanned the crowd for the red haired man before approaching the barman. “Have you seen Akarios?”

  6. Miklos (Mu 1)

    Miklos didn’t want to crowd Maruc out by the bar so he kept an eye on the exits just in case the man appeared.
