Akasha heads over to Drad Silor and slowly puts her arm around him. "We finished off those nasty rats for you! So you know what time it is, what have you got for us?" As the words slip tenderly from Akasha's mouth she turns her head and winks at Big Coin, knowing he is eying her newly filled leather satchel.
She gently places a hand over her shoulder bag and turns back to Drad. "So what's it gonna be?" She whispers in his ear. (after the business with Drad is concluded) "I vote we head for the great outdoors! It's a little smoky in here for my tastes. And - it seems everyone smells worse than Kahn McDoo, or at least close to it," Akasha adds as she turns her nose up at Mcdoo.
"Aiyana - I think we can find the quiet you want to talk and examine our spoils over there." Blackbird points to a dark booth in a rounded corner. It stands empty and alone tonight because the usual bunch that inhabits this table are off scouting. Apparently they heeded the call to assist the farmers with a goblin infestation. "Slim chance that Boltpin will return this evening from raiding goblins - the table is all ours!"
"It is probably a good idea to talk with Silor in private about what we found as well. I doubt he's even privy to the secret chamber in his own cellar... let alone his family history. What do you say Akasha - can you convince a busy brewmaster to join our party for a private one on one?"
Piker Big Coin, Khan McDoo, Benziken, Shi Wu Sung, Ser Boros Barristan, Sabastine Blackblade, Wilhelm von Drepfelt, and Drungar Treeshatter are stuck on the ladder waiting to come out of the dank cellar as the three discuss where the party should head next.
The small tavern is crowded. Enough city dwellers, port workers, farmers, merchants, and even monks of the cathedral are crammed into the small den to make it uncomfortable.
The smell of the crowd, the limited selection of ale and food, and the few decorations adorning the walls of this small tavern tell you it is one of the lower class establishments in the City (if not all the Realms).
Malurie Ardan is filling a large mug of ale for a patron. She looks at Akasha as the dark elf rises from the cellar stairs. Drad Silor stands behind the bar serving food and ale in exchange for coin.

HINT: Get equipped! A whole city lies outside your door - and a whole world at the end of your street. Don't for get to explore the city to purchase equipment, gain knowledge from masters, and learn spells from mages before getting underway! Often asking a citizen of the town you find yourself in can be useful in locating the shops you seek. At times directories, lists, and tomes exist that catalog the establishments of much larger cities.
