I tell him about the vegetation hole. "It's either there or the mine. Or maybe at the market."

"Oh, you left that out? And you bring it up now because you want them extra dead for sure, or because you want me to buy your picture? That was a risky move, breaking the watch. Did they catch you doing it? We'll keep our eye on you. If we were in Tiskar, I'd have work for you."

"No, because they operate in groups of ten. So there are four you haven't seen. Glad to know about the two in the wild, I won't pull my hair out looking for them."

As Julian leaves, he notices a pair of guards exits shortly after him and just happen to go the same direction he does.

"I want them," I catch the word in my mouth; I don't really want them dead. "You can have their pictures for nothing. I don't want them coming back, notifying Tarbreth, or otherwise causing trouble."

The less I say about things I've stolen the better I think.

I check my notes. "Shouldn't there be as many as the spears? There were twenty of those. Could some have been spares?"

I tell Lorek which hole.

Hm... I'll go check the time and maybe get something for lunch. I'll see if they keep following me while I go about my business.

Observation to check

"Twenty Spears. That sounds right. That's good intelligence. There are twenty then. You've seen six. But this Tarbreth seems to be the leader."

Its more dinner time than lunch, at least on his old schedule. He notes that the stone time system the mines use is much less familiar than the standard watches Reslin and Tarbreth were using.


The soldiers continue to follow him...

I was thinking of the clock near the fountain when it came to checking the time, but anyway.

I wonder if the stone time system has a standard format. Maybe they change it from time to time?

Its the fourth stone right now.

"Nothing. What makes you think we want something. We aren't following you."


The men are terrible liars.

Wow, my players are right, blatant lies are hard to deal with.

"Look, I've seen you follow me since I left the gated area. Why?"

"Its just a coincidence. Besides, if we were following you, it'd be in our rights."

This isn't getting anywhere. "Fine. Okay."

I guess they'll be following me back to the "squatter's hole". If they were sent by Lorek, I guess they'll now where that is and catch up with me anyway. If not, I'll try to escape their sight.

I'll be going with a Stealth roll, Shadowing might fit better but Julian's best default is Stealth - 4.

NPC: I've never met him in my life.

PC: We have video evidence and testimony that shows you met on multiple occasions.

NPC: You must be mistaken; that's not me.

They do indeed follow him back to the hole. The other boys aren't back yet. The guards stop and loiter around for a few minutes, asking questions to anyone walking through the area. Everyone watches them very nervously.



Julian's stuff is all gone from its location.



The soldiers loose sight of Julian, and this causes them some consternation, though they're doing their best not to show it, he notices they are talking to each other and moving around a lot more.
