We leave the woods behind us in little time. Sepia Town rises on the horizon, its drab appearance signifying the worst of civilization.
The only good quality about this city is its location: A strong point for trade, attracting merchants from all over the continent, together with their extra baggage made of swindlers and thieves.
Much has to be changed in this town.. But that is not something a knight like me can arrange. I fight evil as it appears: Corruption is out of my hands.

As we approach one of the gates a heavy man approaches us, presumably a guard.

"Hey hey, where do you think ya're goin', mate? I'd ask to see your caravan license, but ya don't look like traders to me. Better not be 'ere to start trouble."

Sigh. Here I thought I could watch this unfold without meddling, but nooo everybody acts stupid!

Just slip him a small bribe, a silver or something and say that you are simple travellers and no threat at all.

"We don't want to bother you."

I slip the guard a coin. He nods and steps aside, looking past us as if no longer acknowledging our presence.

Inside the city walls I waste no time finding the closest inn: "The Cat In The Bag". A vile den of villainy, but still a thousand times better than the rotting streets are at night.
In a twilight between life and death, men drink and gamble and women whore themselves for an eternity.

Taking one sniff of the air inside, Black Fang says that he prefers to sleep in the stables with my mount. I let him.

The two kobolds stand nervously at my side. They are noticeably excited yet intimidated by the big city life.

I better rent a private room for us. One with a lock..
..but my purse feels empty.

"Depends, lad. What's yer talent?"

I don't see what the fuss is about. I will display my prowess as entertainment, and at the same time it will deter any wise mugger.
I am just curious what kind of shows they provide here, considering the barkeep didn't see me as--..

I see.

No. 82625 ID: e3f578

We aren't a woman at all! Are the men here bicurious or something? Or do they just want to see a man dancing along with the chicks to help imagine themselves up there?

Ridder I think the barman may have mistaken you for a woman.
Just keep your undies on and convince the crowd you're a very flat woman.
That'll surely keep any muggers and degenerates off you once you're back on the street!

I confidently stride onto the stage and begin my performance. I make sure to demonstrate the control I have over my well-developed muscles.

The previously roaring crowd goes silent.

"..Hey.. That's a man!"
"Oy, shu' up 'n enjoy th' show."
"Fuck ya! Someone get tha' faggot off the stage!"
"Oy, y'got a problem wi' homosex'ls?!"

I lean down towards the fighting men. It will be best if I can end this conflict before it spreads across the highly volatile crowd.

"Boys. Don't fight over me."
"Hey, there wouldna be anythin' to fight over if ya got off the fuckin' stage!"
"Don't list'n to 'im, 'andsome. Jus' cos' one baby is throwin' a tantrum dun' mean we gotta cancel th'show."

That.. is true as well. If I try to talk to them in my current situation, I might just make things worse.
I go back to my performance.

"Ya fuckin' fag-- GUH!"
"Tha's 'nough outta ya."

Suddenly I hear a purring voice behind me.

"You're either real brave or real stupid."

"Wonderful.. This way."

She gently takes my hand. Hers feels soft and feminine. With every grace in her step she leads me down the back of the stage to a set of stairs hidden behind a curtain.
We ascend.

I follow the woman into a small room. There's barely space for a bed, and it's littered with small miscellaneous items. Probably gifts.

"So.. What do you think? I worked quite a bit to get here."

She leans back onto the window sill. Her mischievous grin glistens in the candle light.

"Straight to the point.. I like that. Well, once upon a time lived a dwarf named Diamondtooth, who was the greediest little jeweler you'd ever find. And that litle tower over there is where he keeps all his gems. Unreachable from anywhere.. but this room."

From between the clutter of gifts, she elegantly reveals a small grappling hook.

I think it's acceptable, enough to fill what was stolen at least.
No. 82719 ID: f708cb

Nine tenths? Climbing into a tower with the only escape route leading to her room... Kinda not worth the risk.
You could increase your share after the deed, since she is soft and femine and you are not.

But as much as you need the money for a good cause, to commit a crime just to prevent other bigger crimes should not be your way.

Sepia Town might be a corrupted pit, but you don't have to play along with their rules.

Well you could still try appeasing the gay/bi part of the crowd! And I'm sure if you stayed a bit the women would start coming.
We can stick to a solo act but we're going to have to get the innkeeper to forgive us, and going to our recent acquaintance we risk being in debt to her. Take advantage of your blushing naked self to beg the innkeeper for another chance.

I think this is all a test you know. An adventure. All moments are challenges to you, but really.

You are good at comat, so combat is not a challenge. Your honor has shown to be unbreakable. Your morals, on the other hand.

We´ve skipped too many opportunities to dive headfirst into adventuring. This miht not be the kind that gets you into a dungeon, or facing an evil overlord straight from day one.

But still is an offer from Fate, to show what you are capable of. Do you accept?

Thank you, voices.

Yes, indeed, we were en route to the elven ruins but stopped at Sepia Town for a much needed rest.
Our plan to earn a bit of coin were shattered, but I believe all of us had a good sleep in the stables. I'm sure my gnoll and kobold friends know nothing else than a bed of straw.

The morning sun is just peeking over the treeline to the east, probably already bathing our destination in light.
A chilly breeze keeps us all awake. We are making good speed.

Ooooh. When you guys do get to the forest, send Black Fang out to hunt down something with meat (no humanoids please), and then send the Herbalist out to get some fruits and veg to go with it.

Then get the Carpenter to find some good kindling and fire wood, and start up a proper cookpit.

This left wing of the house turn up little out of the ordinary. Most of the rooms have been stripped, likely due to being looted dozens of times.
A tiny room at the front of the house appears to have been a small bath, perhaps even with a commodity. Another room all the way on the back of the house is definitely a bath. Both have been overgrown with moss feeding on the moisture, and I don't know how the elves got their water inside.

I must note that exploring was quite difficult due to the windows being made of stained glass, now too dirty to let sunlight in. I had to rely on a few cracks here and there to let me navigate.

Now then, I have returned to the foyer. Shall I enter through the double doors or the door across the hall?

I enter through the double doors. It goes with the strategy to keep left.
They open up to a very large room, presumably a ballroom. A short set of stairs lead up to a massive window, then split up towards a balcony above me.
The window is as dirty as the other windows. Small strips of sunlight dissipate in the floating dust.

Right in the middle of the window's magnificence sits a harp.. and its harpist.

Around me the dancefloor comes to life. Pairs of corpses, suspended from large hooks on chains, descend from the ceiling and begins to spin and move as if performing a waltz. Between them swing hooks without anything on them.

On the note of confrontation, do we have any plans to meet up with this 'Boss' Character?

If you want to maintain the respect and cooperation of your hirelings and allies, you should see to their comfort and basic cooperation.
Given that the Goblin tinker comes from a village highly-afraid of Black Fang, she might be a little frightened. While she won't have to share sleeping quarters (good idea separating by gender) with the beast of a man, you should definitely introduce the two of them and see that they get along well.

"So let's just go in a circle and introduce ourselves. I'll go first: My name is Ridder. I used to be a knight for the late lord Malto of the Kingdom of North Piacevole, before the revolution. Eventhough I am now in exile, I continue to love my land and its people. That is why I am heading this operation in the name of lord Malto, to protect his rightful heritage.

"Yeah, uh.. I'm Black Fang. I, uhm.. I grew up in the desert in the far south. I worked as a mercenary through most of my.. my teenage years. Then I saw that kind of existence was pretty meanin'less, so.. I decided to become the ultimate swordsman. I used ta think it was all 'bout strength, so I need men like Ridder to set me straight.
That's.. that's pretty much it."

I have to leave soon to secure more information regarding our enemy. That means the base will be in your hands. You all know your duties, but I'd also like you to look to each other for help, and be willing to lend someone a hand.
Is that agreeable?"

So then... Timotei and Sticks would finally have things to do.

And to see what you can do about not getting killed by the refugees from the other town when they track you down. (you stole her chocobo...)

Do you have any idea where I can start my search for Timotei and Sticks? It is true that I have a better place for them now.
I will also need to search for the necessary items to turn my office into a war room.

First, I will look into the hidden floor theory. The ballroom is the only room that is two floors high, and the mansion's front also suggested two floors, but I haven't seen any stairs or doors leading to anything but this balcony.
This is where I'd like to put my bed, overlooking the war room.

As you can imagine, this was the only place not looted. However, the wooden furniture and carpets were rotten, so we had to dispose of them.

No, I have never adventured. I am at home on the battle field. Mounted and spear in hand, leading the charge into battle.

This must be the real private quarters. It is remarkably well preserved. There are no traces of flora or fauna.
That also carries the consequence that the air is very stale.

I concur. I also think that this is a much better place for your quarters than on the balcony. I mean really, the war room would be a joke if it had a bed overlooking it.

Very well. I shall make this into my private working and sleeping quarters. The balcony shall be my public office and the ballroom the warroom.

The desk has one small drawer in the middle. Inside are two gold rings.
They have a certain glitter about them that I can't quite place.
I suspect they were the wedding rings.
