Milun Gilad Foix De’ Canard, Inceptor Neophyte of the good wise knowing god Tinel, and professional book hunter for his god's scriptorium, hopped down from the back of the wagon, waiving thanks to the driver, and a quick simple prayer filled the farmer and his son's water skins and a near by bucket with clear pure water for the horse pulling the cart - a simple enough offering of thanks for one that gives a traveler a simple comfort and a little help on the travels.

Looking at the walled town/city of Newmarket, where to go … There are questions he has been given that has to find the answered.

Some answers are already found, but he dislikes the answers … his nose crinkles at the thought … To many Setite priests and warrior cultist of the foul god Set (long curse his name, the instigator of confusion, the destroyer, the desert red serpent, the god that turned his back on the good he once preformed) in the once holy pyramid of Thoth. But oh what must be there hidden away in that once revered pyramid … A shrug of his shoulders at the though.

A duck has enough troubles for the day, no need to look ahead at storms that may come or may be avoided.

A half smile lightens his face as he turns and walks into the city gate.

3 Aug recap

After a few days in the free city of Newmarket, De'Canard had made an acquaintance. Ms Solren Safen, a devotee (in her own way) of Toth (a version of Tinel whom De'Canard revered), but surprisingly she also had similar skills to his book hunter skills. Other than that he had made a few coins reading letters and acting as a scribe by the page, writing letters documents etc for locals in the market.

At lunch, in the tavern he had come to frequent, besides the hand full of locals, and not counting himself and Ms Sefen, there were 5 others that were exceptional (compared to the local commoners). One including a newly arrived heavily armored and armed knight … odd face covered with a cloth scarf, but odd eyes and deep green skin … and he had an evil looking crest on his shoulder armor. A quick prayer (detect evil) showed the new comer was not evil, and a lucky remembering of old lessons (high history check) showed the crest may appear evil, but it was tied to an exotic eastern order of knights that killed the evil dragon that had created and held the crest and they took it as their own badge after killing the monster.

As the half elf bard finished his song, a noble lady, much to everyone's surprise, entered the common room. She commented on seeing a full blooded elf, and then to the face covered knight. She then said to those in attendance (speaking to the exceptional people in the room not the local farmers) that she had sent may previous groups to hunt 3 items for her, but they all failed to return. If any wished to band together and attempt getting the items, it would be worth their time, if they survived of course.

As the lady talked privately to the bar keep, De'Canard introduced himself and Ms Safen to the knight (another surprise a half orc who took heavily from his orcish parent's looks - wit a high perception check to notice it under the armor and face scarf), and then drew in a bookish fellow (reading a mystical book -De'Canard gathered from the style of writing and language used).

Words were exchanged with the half elf bard and the full elf . De'Canard starting in (a very rusty) elf, but the bard switching language. DeCanard played along with the game until the bard switched to goblin, a language De'Canard didn't know) but then the half Orc picked up the game and answered in that hash tongue. Eventually, the half elf and full blooded elf joint the group forming around De'Canard's table.

What to do

Take the lady up on her offer, very dangerous, …
Are there any other options anyone in the new forming group can think of ???

A basic 0 day session

Everyone put finishing touches on their character, and got a little info on the Arden-Vul area.
