Tobin gave the bandaged man a warm smile, pointing his knife vaguely in his direction.
Bind- You're the smart one, then. Way I see it I've saved you a few more hours of traipsing around this forest. A little coin seems a fair compensation for that trouble. Or, if you'd prefer I'm willing take the boy to some associates of mine and have him toiling in a mine for the rest of his days. That would cost a little more, of course.
Spiky hair - "Hey, what about us? The pine lodge gang-"
Bandages - "Doesn't specialize in acquisition. You could return to jobs that better... suit your skills. Yes, I think it is about time we favored reliability over speed. I have heard of Eclipse, and would be like to work out a deal. I'd rather have these talks done somewhere that isn't in the middle of a forest, however."
**He writes a location down along with a number of potential times - and the name of a contact in Elexia should any changes need to be made down the line. Bandages also passes Bind a roll of semi-transparent, slick-looking cloth.**
Bandages - "I don't have much in the way of gold on my person, as it were, but perhaps you'll take that magic cloth as compensation? Should your associates be interested we could supply them as well, although I would understand if they prefer pure coin."
Bandages - "I do. Tell him that if he makes it back before my presence again I will, should he have kept his mouth shut all the while, reveal the final note. Should his squealing reach me first, I will tell his beloved all the rest."
Tobin nodded, reaching across and sealing the boy's mouth with sticky webbing before hefting him over one shoulder. The serpent staff remained wrapped around the boy's arms. Assuming nobody interrupted him, Tobin started towards the coast.
Banshee Silk - A semi-transparent, slick-looking silk. Emotion Resonance - The tint of the silk changes to reflect the emotions of the wearer. Once ever, while the wearer is experiencing a particularly strong emotion, the silk or an item made from it can be 'locked', maintaining that emotion's coloration and gaining two abilities based on the emotion in question (or items made from it will gain two abilities, if not yet an item). Negative emotions are far easier to lock than positive ones. Karmic Echo - Some Banshee silk items possess spiritual scraps for.. some reason or another. This can cause unpredictable effects. But full animation or even verbal communication is unheard of.
Laelaps and Streep walk from Epicrin to Elexia. The boy took his time and traveled off of the road, preferring the forests to being out in the open. He didn't mind if he ended up in the city after dark.
