"The boat you're looking for is named the Forever Dawn. They're setting out from Tantium within a few days, taking passengers to and from Benalia. It's a civilian ship, not equipped for combat. That's not to say these people aren't ready, willing, and able to if the need arises. You mages are there for insurance."
Goday pulls out a bag, and places it on the counter. "If you agree, I'm to give you 30 gold for expenses, and 30 gold when you come back to Estark. Agreed?"
Please read my post in the Welcome/Discussion thread (link in my signature) for my apology and pledge. I will be sending shadowfuryix a PM today, because I thought I had previously. If he doesn't respond before Friday, I will lower the difficulty of the mission accordingly and we will continue as if he had never gotten into the quest.
The loxodon gives the gems to Soru, taking his gold. "Thank you. Have a good day."
The crew ships out, so to speak, and starts to make their way to Tantium.
After several hours walk, including time for a bite to eat, the trio start to spy a city on the horizon. One with the hint of masts behind it, implying ships, and the ocean beyond.
Another hour's walk takes them to the gates. The deep orange sun is near the horizon, casting warm lines of light and deep shadows from the masts and buildings. As they approach the city walls, they see a guard post at a gate to the city. One guard is standing within the guard post, keeping an eye on a large man with short-clipped hair standing on the far side of the gate, cleaning his fingernails with a cut-throat razor.
OOC: I'll answer. Sorry for the delay, the WPLs were discussing how to distribute Red's quests. I'll be taking over this one. It doesn't appear Red left any information about the quest anywhere. From what I've read, your characters were contracted to ride aboard the Forever Dawn and provide protection for the civilian ship. Is this correct?
