Mykael makes his way around the corner by the riverside and two guards standing by the door usher him into the inn. Emeline's Inn is a quaint little place where nothing seems to match and two halflings in robes play a card game. But he pays no heed, as he hands over the 2 gold for the room and retreats to his own space for the night.
Zork seems to be having a more favourable night, as he gets all he asked for, with meals, at the cost of 4 gold. He hands you a key and heading upstairs, Zork drops everything in his small room. A few minutes later a tall, sharp-featured brunette woman informs him that the bath has been refilled with hot water.
Moonday 1st Erastus
Reconvening at the gates to the offices, the guards let each of you in and you get seated in the Chief Surveyor's room. KNtoran is first, having been awakened by a racket of alcoholics starting their drinking in the early morning and the clang of metal in the forge. Mykael is the last to arrive, having come the furthest and his puffy eyes hiding nothing.
"Good tidings, everyone," Mallius Vand starts. "The Swordlords have agreed to meet you." He gives you a moment to let it sink in. "However, they are busy with Archerfeast preparations for the next two days. They have agreed to meet with you on the 4th, when the council convenes anyway for the awards ceremony of the previous day's contests. You will be included towards the end of the ceremony and will be in the public eye. So you have to be doubly presentable - for your image and for the Swordlords.
"However, the Swordlords also know you are missing a member and would like to know if this date is too early for you. They can organise a less public meeting in two weeks' time. In the meantime they will contact Archival through a Sending spell at their expense to inform him of your choice."
