Season 2 - Episode 3: Abraham Hall

Post Sun Feb 12, 2012 9:16 am

It’s late afternoon when you finally roll into Westport and join its citizens squeezed inside the city walls. The guards at the Northern Gate wave Shaw through after only the most cursory of glances at the wagons and you find yourselves on a wide but crowded thoroughfare leading into the heart of the city. The route is flanked by a variety of shops, taverns and houses, all jostling for space with one another. Numerous smaller roads and alleyways branch off in all directions, giving the impression of an urban maze. For those used to the relative calm of Marketstone and its surrounding countryside, Westport is somewhat bewildering and disorientating.

After crawling along the main road for a couple of hundred yards amongst a mixture of pedestrians, riders, wagons and coaches, Shaw calls a halt alongside a rather formally dressed gentleman standing by the roadside. He's wearing a dark jacket over a crisply starched white shirt, matching dark trousers and immaculately polished black boots. Clean shaven, his black hair is neatly combed in a side parting. With his hands clasped firmly behind his back, he nods at Shaw, looks along the wagons, and enquires "is there a Mr Tannen here?"

As the wagons approached the city gates, Doughbert warily watched the gate guards. he squirmed back into the straw as much as possible in fear that he may be a target for an unseen archer. The ride through the city was nerve wracking. People were everywhere, any of them could be a crazed attacker, or even, and Doughbert shuddered at the thought, an assassin sent by Bertie to even the score. "Just get me to the temple," he prayed softly. "and I'll never go out again."

Tannen, jumps down from Wagon 4, straightens his armour and approaches the well-dressed gentleman.

"I am Tannen, sir. Are you Mr Abraham Hall?"

Tannen extends his right hand in greeting.

Tannen extends his right hand in greeting.
With his arms still behind his back (ignoring Tannen's proffered hand) your new acquaintance addresses you in a rather stiff and formal manner. "Welcome to Westport Mr Tannen. If you and your colleagues would like to follow me, I will present you to Mr Hall in due course."

And without further ado, he turns militaristically and marches off in an easterly direction down one of the narrow side roads.

Tannen shrugs towards the others and signals for them to follow him. Thanking Shaw for the ride, Tannen follows the well-dressed man down the alley.

Doughbert looks down the empty alley and thinks what a bad idea this is. Once he digs his way back up out of teh straw its too late to slow down tannen. He thinks about staying put but as he sees the others start to follow (if they do) he thinks its worse to stay out here alone. he rushes to get into the middle of the pack next to some tall folks who will serve as nice arrow blockers and follows along.

Gannicus follows the others and is wary of a potential ambush once they approach the alley.

Benoni and Paladin follow Tannen. Paladin keeps an eye out for pickpockets, throngs of children, buildings marked as protected by the Guild, and large temples dedicated to the healing arts. Benoni tries not to trip in the street.
