A highly entertained Dmitri sits down in the neatest bench. 'this is going to be better than I thought' he thought. He touches his gauntlet with a finger, letting some of the power flow into him. An addicting feeling. "you guys done? I'm not getting any younger."
"But that would make me one of the victors as well, what kind of victor would I be if I went around telling all of your brutally heroic exploits? Also Arl, if your plan is to heighten your reputation through viciousness, and all who witness it are honor bound by secrecy, how will your notoriety raise?"
**Calben, who had watched this whole exchange with mild disinterest, nodded now that they'd sorted things out.**
Calben - Nasty bunch. Highly skilled in knifework and slippery as hell to get ahold of. Got their name from the trail of slit throats they leave in their wake. They've stricken all five cities at one point, usually hitting a couple targets before vanishing for awhile then resurfacing in another city. Leader is supposed to have some nasty magic at his disposal. They hit the estate of the Academy's headmistress while she is away on a field trip, killed alot of staff. They should still be in town preparing for another job before they vanish. Here is a map with the Headmistress's estate in the Grand Quarter marked. I suggest you start from there.
Calben - There are three yet to be redeemed. There is The Crimson Smile gang, but that requires at least three people and there is already a group seeking them. There is an unknown nuisance but we have no info on him to give anyone, they just have to wait until he pops up somewhere and nab him. Finally there is an Unknown kidnapper, but you will need a partner to check into that. They are all listed in the cryer, for future reference.
"I am aware of the listings. I was not however aware that the crimson smile was already being pursued. You can never trust the papers to be completely accurate so I prefer to confirm availability before request. I will take the bounty on the kidnapper. I imagine that another bounty hunter will eventually show up... And I have all the time in the world."
Calben - Aye, we usually only update when they are caught. Up til then others are free to try and beat the other hunters to the bounty if they want. But you'd need at least two partners to take that Smile, and at least one partner for the kidnapping. Come back with the partner, and I will put you on the case.
"It looks like I have my partner" He says gesturing to the two who were going on about the kidnapping bounty. "Shall we?" He asks Calben and walks over to the two. "Hello gentlemen my name is Christov, I am seeking a companion to enter into a bounty with, and it appears we are interested in the same case."
In the moment of tension his only outward reaction is to lift an eyebrow at the young peacekeeper, but inside his soul thrilled at the thought of combat, of the kill, of draining every last ou- He quickly shut off the line of thinking, regaining control of his thoughts. "You'll forgive me if I don't shake hands, human contact isn't in your best interest. Although I am pleased to make your aquaintences as well, and would gladly accept any skills you would bring in hunting down the wicked."
Calben - Well, now that that is all set. The missing was a professor of earth arts and ancient history at the Academy. He was kidnapped from his home in the Artisan's district a couple days ago. I suggest you start your investigation there.
"Sounds good to me, shall we be off gentlemen? You have the address I would imagine?" He holds out his hand to receive the address and if he gets it starts walking towards the door expecting the brothers to follow.
