“No, no, no Master Halfling. That is NOT how civilised people in Westport conduct their affairs. Your colleague and I ..., “ nodding at Nivek, “... have agreed the terms of business and we will proceed along those lines. You would do well to follow the example of Master Tannen and direct your energies to the job in hand.”Hywaywolf wrote:"We were paid 1000 gp for our last adventure since the farmer chipped in. And some of us died. We were out for many days and had horses stolen from us.: What is this gem worth? Seems to me if this was going to be an easy job they wouldn't need to be bringing in outside help. We already know a whole gang has started rotting, and I doubt that all of them touched it, so it probably has an area effect. So we know its going to be a hellish job. I would think $25 gold each a day and $5000 for the return is more fair."
Turning to Tannen: “there are, as far as I am aware, three gangs operating the Warren. Fortunately, the Weir Gang are located in the portion of the complex closest to the entrance. They mainly forge currency and trade in contraband and stolen goods. I believe their leader, Kurt Holger, has the gemstone in his possession.”Birthright wrote:Tannen also enquires as to the nature of this weir gang and their likely numbers, experience, armament and the possibility of spell-casters and a description of the gem...
“From the Weir’s area, the Warren runs towards the river. The central part of the complex is run by the Lantinis. They are the most powerful gang in the Warren and are involved in all manner of illicit activities. On the southern edge of the complex, with access to the river, is the base of the Hydes. They are mainly smugglers and cut-throats.”
“To assist you in moving around the complex, I’ve managed to acquire the Weir’s password for today - ‘Sweet Hanna’. I don’t know either of other gangs’ passwords, but hopefully you shouldn’t need them
“The Warren itself is situated on the north bank of the river in one of the less salubrious areas of the city. It consists of part of the city’s sewer system and a series of old basements and cellars that have been sealed off and knocked together to make an underground complex.”
"As for the stone, it is roughly the size and shape of hen’s egg, polished, and predominantly blue and purple with white marbling. It’s quite distinctive."
"I think that’s all I can tell you. If there are no further questions I will call my physician to tend to the injured and arrange a meal for you before your departure."
