When the officials of Elexia decided to build the sewer system that would keep their city clean and much less pungent, they did not account for the presence of the atarin. Hundreds of yards of sewer had to be diverted or rebuilt when some sections of the system intersected the aquatic race's tunnels.
To this day, the atarin make use of the sewer tunnels that don't have excrement flowing through them. Setting up camps and markets just below the city surface.
**Josie picked her way very carefully down to the Warren Trenches... Clear tunnels or no clear tunnels, they were still part of the sewer system she thought to herself, not exactly her cup o tea, if you know what I mean. She was in search of Councillor Monmoor.**
As she descended into the warrens she was pleasantly surprised to smell a mix of salt water and delicious spices. Dotted throughout the sewers were occasional fire pits, with tightly wound bundles of spices hung above them in rows. The smoke from these fires gave the tunnels an inviting aroma before escaping through grates that were probably original supposed to be drains.
If Josie's contacts were correct, Councillor Monmoor would be at the nearby market stalls this morning.
**Pleasantly surprised by what she found, Josie picked up her pace considerably, the enticing aroma from the fires easing her mood. With increased interest, she made her way over towards the direction of the market stalls.**
As Josie headed down the tunnels the sound of lively conversation slowly increased. Soon she was in the middling of a bustling market selling herbs, spices, corals, fabrics and other assorted goods. A group of atarin woman were gathered round a dashingly handsome atarin gentleman who one could easily assume was the councillor.
**Ahhh, thought Josie, he is quite the specimen. Sultry to perfection, the young theif made her way past the teeming market and over to the councillor. Choosing to hang just back from the atarin women, she tried to catch the eye of Monmoor.**
Josie - Of course. Well, maybe a little embarrassment to go with it? I'll make sure that they receive the message loud and clear, along with your stolen material. But this, indiscretion, for lack of a better term, it's not something I'm going to have a problem with, is it?
