I am heading to Sursi to close out my family's estate. The estate is in the northern reaches, just south of where there have been some major Goblin attacks. Due to these attacks people are leaving the northern part of Sursi is droves. I suspect that among them there just maybe some would would try to rob their fellow traveler, and I do not wish for that to happen to myself. Once at the estate I will need you two to make sure that if the Goblins should attempt to venture near that they are greeted well. Do I make myself clear?
She says as she waits for the driver to get down and open the door for her.
You may address me as Marquita. So you traveled to Estark for culture? Estark is not a place where one will find much culture, unless the culture that you are looking for is some mold off in the corner of a flea bitten tavern.
"This is true, but anywhere is better than from where I come from. I also heard this is a good place for fighting. I am always up for challenges and I give you my word that if we run into any of these so-called goblins I will do away with them quickly."
Damien then looks to May'ot...
"And where do you come from?"
"I have not a shred of memory about my family. They left me on a staircase of a convent. The convent was later to be revealed as a group of insane cultists that prayed to demons. They raised me well though, taught me to fight and taught me to survive. When I became of age they tried to convert me to their ways so I quickly left and have been on my own ever since."
The hours go by quickly as they travel towards Sursi. Soon night falls and the driver stops off at an inn in a small back woods town. You can hear him get down and come to the door. He slowly opens it and address Marquita.
Ma'am. We need to stop off for the night. I have found an Inn that seems decent enough.
She glares at him for a moment.
Fine. How close to home are we?
About half a day Ma'am.
Good. Go in and make the proper arrangements.
He says with a nod of his head. He closes the door and heads inside.
A look of disdain crosses her face for a moment as May'ot questions her.
As I said, due to the state of affairs in Northern Sursi their might those who wish someone such as myself harm along the route that we need to take, plus their are the Goblin hordes that may attempt to attack once we arrive.
A moment later Geoffrey returns and opens the door.
All is ready Ma'am.
Two connected rooms; one for you and one for the three of us.
Geoffrey leads the way inside the Inn. As they travel us to their rooms they pass by a simple pub area where drink and food can be had. They reach their rooms which are labeled 6A and 6B and are at the end of a hallway.
Here we are Ma'am.
Good Geoffrey. Now return to the pub that we passed and gather some food for me; I am famished.
He turns and heads back down the hall.
I am retiring to my room. The the two of you are welcome to do as you please, but do get some rest. We will be leaving soon after first light and I need to two of you awake and aware for the rest of the journey. Good night gentlemen.
In the tavern Ma'yot finds many travelers. Occupying three of the five the booths along the walls of the pubs are pairs of travelers drinking and eating their last meal of the day. A few more have taken seats at the bar. A large group however occupies a large round table in the middle of the pub. Drinking, feasting, and boisterous words come from all those who are seated.
