The Merchant City

Day 2: Destroying a Building and Sneaking into Churches

Introducing Charles!

Today happened a little to quickly. I’ve been trailing these three big guys for a while and today they saw me. It started when I heard them talking about “The Bound Hand” while pickpocketing a merchant. The Bound Hand, my parents, I was never able to find anything myself so I figured I’d see if they could lead me to something. I snuck into a building after them but some geezer proved to be problematic. He saw me, I was scared but couldn’t see any escape so I threw a dart to incapacitate him,. It didn’t work. He froze me and the three stooges came up the stairs to help. Not good. I broke free and sprinted past them, bad move they didn’t like that. The shiny one cut me with his sword, pony tail hit my other shoulder as I ran past and the hammer hit a wall, geezer didn’t like that and went to go look for something in the, broom closet I assume. Down the stairs I thought I was home free, not even close. Pony tail had sticks, and the floor boards splintered then, I just stopped and sat. Hammer picked me up and kissed me on the forehead like I was a pet. Shiny asked me if I was friend or foe and I don’t actually know yet but I said friend to keep from being crushed. Then a hot magic lady brought us into her office and offered me a job. Well really I had to help her and the bozos find out about the Bound Hand or I’d be handed over to the appropriate authorities. Perfect. I stayed outside with Pony Tail, whose name is apparently Ülthor but Pony Tail is easier to pronounce, while Shiny (Alder) and Hammer (Aer) went into a church to find out what they could about the Bound Hand and turns out they had a large Ceremony at sunset. Those two, with Hammer disguised so non of the Hand would kill him on sight went to the Ceremony to scope out the scene while I snuck into the offices above the Ceremony to see what I could find. Pony tail became a rat scoped out the area under me. After plenty of trial and error, I found a lot of documents that the Church was receiving a lot of money from some bad people. Like Sul, the leader of the Mercenaries Guild. The church had also recently paid the Mercenaries Guild an The Monster Hunters to get rid of some goblins in an alley outside of city. They also had some business going on at the cities docks but that document was half burned and didn’t’ help to much. I heard someone coming after the Ceremony ended and went out the window. Pony Tail snuck around as a rat downstairs and managed to steal a brooch. We met up with Shiny and Hammer when Shiny started telling us about a familiar face he saw after they left he Ceremony.
