John and Foran eat, but the others deny the stew. The captain thinks for a moment.
"Yes, we'll need at least 25 more people. Perhaps more. I could go down and hire them right now, if you wish. It'll cost maybe 6 gold to hire enough soldiers."
You give him the money, and he heads down to the Mercenary Office. You're alone with Ariel, so you ask her about the goon leader, Jack.
"Well, it was two years ago. I was exploring some ruins, and I was being financed by Blackheart, though I didn't know she was dirty until later. Anyways, Jack was my partner. That bitch had sent him along to watch me, make sure I didn't try to rip her off for her share of the treasure. So, we find this old cube, right? Jack picks it up, and puts it in his pocket. I ask what he's doing, and he says that Blackbitch said he could have a share too. So I tell him that wasn't part of our arrangement, and he pulls out his sword. I'm about to blast him with a fireball, when I get attacked fro behind by a skeleton. I think it's another guy sent to watch me, until Jack yells, and turns his tail running. So I get it off me, and I see forty more of the things. Jack left me in that cave to die, and I almost did."
The animal paused.
"But that's not the end. When I get back to town, Blackheart had taken all my stuff. Jack told her I was dead. So I go to her home, and tell her Jack fucked up the expedition, and that she needs to give me back my property. So she has me thrown in jail by some dirty guards for 'slander'. Fucked them up, but soon all the guards in town were after me. So I left. Then I came back when I had some money, and tried to get revenge. I hired some mercenaries, and went to ambush her."
"Bu they didn't show up. Blackheart had frozen my account. So they didn't get the money, Blackheart's bodyguards spotted me, and here I am."
