Vassarious reacts to the abbreviated sobriquet, clearly a little insulted by the disrespect.


"Perhaps you are right and her link to the darkness is just what we need. It is a perilous thing to risk, so be it on your head... if you can settle it with the others."
Vassarious says referring to the elf zealot.

Elf Warrior: "she goes. Or I."


Jaline: "I've been much more forthcoming with my background than you."


The Elf touches her holy symbol.



Jaline: "I can carry one of those too."


The Elf Raises the Holy Symbol: "Begone!"


Jaline is visibly effected as the holy symbol shines with light, and backs up towards the door of the Tavern.

"I mean, she does raise a point. What's your motivation? I suppose it isn't 'for the joy of killing'."

Wood Elf Warrior: "Aerantha."

If pushed further, she will say "Bad Portals"

Vassarious did a little research before coming here, though this skerry has way too many Gods. Aerantha is the Goddess of Safe Travel, and obviously has granted the wood elf at least some power.

I can see how Aerantha's interests are served by this mission as the patron of travellers.

This one says their master is dead and gone, but they could have been programmed to say, or even to believe such things until their opportunity for mischief presents itself. I find one option no less likely than the other, and there are countless other unpleasant possibilities. Even with the best of intentions her darkness could get the better of her.

"For better or worse, I guess I have to agree."

Once she leaves we should start discussing what we know with them.

"No Vow. More terse with age."


Some prying by the others comes up with the name "Ren". And a little more prying "A elf with a one syllable name?" comes up with "Renulani"

Jaline: "When a trap kills or maims someone, remember this decision." She leaves the Tavern.

So you will finish explaining your talents and especially why they should trust you?

I hope we (which is to say me and V) can keep an eye of for traps without a dedicated local.

Yes.

"I'm Halcyone. I'm good at sneaking about, I can wrestle just about anyone to the ground with my many arms, and I've got some fancy toys, in particular ones that let me shoot through plate at 100 paces."

I'm honestly not sure why they should trust Halcyone and V. Like is the information we have about the threat especially persuasive? We'll share that all the same. Would telling them of our previous adventures (albeit slightly disguised) persuade?

"I am Vassarious, and I am a warrior, and have knowledge of the occult and have magic that allows me to take other forms."

Vassarious feels that they have made a stuffiest deonstration of their talents off thebttefield by their identification of Joline's nature.

Yes.

(OCC: so she's a scout?)
There is a lot of nodding. It seems stealth, wrestling, and shooting are appreciated.



Arlinela: "What do your people call themselves? Are you on good terms with them? Anything would should be aware of if we meet another of your kind?"


Haley Hufestone: "What brings you to delve in the nexus?"

A little bit by way of motivation and origin is what they can actually inspect. Ren actually provided that: an origin (or at least a loyalty) and a motivation.

Is Vassarious wearing any weapons?


Arlon: "What kind of elf are you? I've never seen that kind before."


Haley Hufestone: "How long have you known each other?"
