    Sup/tg/ is down, so just a recap.

    Last time you came across a small village. They were fearful of Grue, as he and Glod had been robing people close to the village for some time. Talking them down, you put on a show for the villagers. You were able to acquire, through trade as and payment for your show, a larger wagon, a riding horse, two strong horses to pull the wagon, and supplies, in addition to Tanot's wagon and horses. You're using Tanot's smaller wagon to haul supplies and your new wagon to ride in. You also met the Ranger Ruby, who ran away from her Grandfather to join your traveling troupe, which still doesn't have a name by the way. You spent the night with Ruby.

    You wake up to find the skies dark and gray, the sun hasn't even properly started rising. Ruby is pulling her boots on next to you and hands you your shirt. "Get dressed, we need to head out soon if we don't want my Gramp's search party finding us. And he will send one, he's a stubborn bastard."

    She kept you warm all night, and you still can't figure out how she did that with her tongue.
    You try to talk her back into the bedroll, but she's already dressed. Pulling your clothes on and taking out a comb, you try to get cleaned up enough that you can at least pretend you weren't doing what the entire parting knows you were doing. In all likelihood if Ruby didn't have such a high perception, Tanot would have tried to sneak a peek.
    The two of you walk into camp to find everyone still sleeping. Everyone but Zanne, who is re-kindling the fire and preparing breakfast. She looks up at the two of you and quickly looks back to the fire. You think you see a blush on her brown cheeks, but it's still too dark to tell. Ruby paces for a little bit. "We don't have time for this." But Zanne has already started cooking some meat, the the smell makes your mouth water. As Ruby sits next to you you can hear her stomach rumble.

    You know me too well.
    You sneak your hand behind Ruby and take her left hand. She turns to you and crooks a brow, but she holds your hand behind her back. After watching Zanne for a moment the two of you start rounding everyone up. Tabby wakes up on the first try, used to waking up early, but it takes several attempts to rouse Newt. As soon as she wakes up and sees Ruby, she gives a little shriek and bolts upright, the noise being able to wake up most of the rest of the party. You know, you haven't really introduced her yet. Tanot swings out of his hammock and just grins like an idiot when he sees you. After Zanne finishes the cooking and handing out the food, you tell everyone to get ready to leave, you can eat on the road.
    As it gets brighter, the sky remains dark. It seems dark storm clouds moved in in the early morning. The temperature has dropped enough that you wish you had a little warmer gear. You make up for this by sitting closer to Ruby then is entirely necessary. Ruby smiles at the sky. "Good. It'll be harder to track us. He'll give up after about a day. He knows I'll be back eventually."
    Unfortunately, it seems that Persius found Ruby's not sooner then you would have liked. You see horses in the distance traveling in your direction.

    You weigh the options, and come very close to running like a bat out of the hells, but at the last second you decide against it. You don't slow the horses, but you don't speed up either.
    The party seems to get a little tense when they see riders approaching, but relax when as they see it's the villagers and you explain that Ruby wanted to come with you and her Grandfather is somewhat overprotective.
    Persius blacks the road with his horse. The rains starts, light at first, and he glares at you. "RUBY! What the HELL are you doing in that wagon? You get your little ass back to the village right this instant!

    Seeing the angry old man, you scoot a little ways away from Ruby. You're still sitting too close, but not as close. You give her hand a squeeze as she stands up. "Old man, I'm old enough now to make my own choices. You trust me enough to go hunting alone, why can't you trust me to see the world?" You're the only one close enough to see it, but Ruby looks a little less sure of herself right now.
    "I've seen the world Ruby. I've told you all you need to know. It's a an evil shit-hole. The world claimed your father, and I'm not losing another of my kin." The rest of the riders seem to be hanging back from wagons. And the rain starts coming down harder.

    You stand up beside Ruby as the rain pours off your traveling hat. You slip an arm around Ruby's waist and call out to Persius, inviting him to the wagon to discuss this. "We aren't discussing anything. Ruby is coming back home with me."
    Jerking out from your arm, Ruby throws one of her daggers at her grandfather. You hear the ping as it knocks his helmet off of his head. He nearly falls off his horse, but he steadies himself. "Grandpa, I can take care of myself. YOU made sure of that. What's to stop me from just not coming back from a hunting trip? You knew I wouldn't stay in the village forever!"
    Persius looks down at his helmet down in the mud. "I was rather hoping you would." He sighs and seems to deflate some. "You're too much like your mother, you know that? She wouldn't listen to me either. I suppose that's why your father married her." His eyes stare right into you. "And you. You take care of her. There's an Oak tree a few miles up the road. Dig between the two largest roots." He turns his horse and rides off, the other riders following him. Ruby sits back down and pulls her cloak farther up her head. "Thanks." Pausing only to pick up the dagger and helmet, she takes the reigns from you.

    You start to apologize to Ruby, but she shuts you up with a kiss. "Hey, thanks. But don't think you can always back me up. Like I told him, I'm a big girl. And I know what tree he's talking about. Lets go." You ride the rest of the way in silence, broken only when Grue speaks. "Zanne food-lady? Why Bardy girl kiss new girl?"
    The oak tree is huge, towering over everything in the area. You start to get up, but Ruby stops you. "No. I'll do this. Wait here." After about twenty minutes with a shovel, you hear a dull thud. Ruby comes back carrying a box with her. He sets it in the wagon and gets back up beside you. "We'll open it later. I just want to get out of this rain."

There IS a travel's inn, but we don't be getting that far until late afternoon." You reach into a pocket and pull out a clean handkerchief and hand it to Ruby. "Thanks." She dries her face.
    Tanot pulls his wagon along side yours and starts talking to Grue, who becomes very confused. You quickly shut him up and turn back to Grue and explain to him that sometimes girls like other girls. He nods his head. "Momma has girlfriends too! They go hunting." You try to explain to him that sometimes girls like girls more then they like men. "Momma loves hunting."

    Oh well, he'll get it eventually. I was under the impression that we weren't going full lesbian, but whatever. Keep heading for the inn and made some chit chat with Newt since we haven't talked much to her. Ask her about her life before her master and his unfortunate encounter with the Lich.

    Also. We still need to find out about Ruby's likes and dislikes when it comes to music. Maybe play something for her if she mentions something we know. After that, we should make sure to socialize with the rest of our companions, so nobody feels left out with us giving so much attention to Ruby. Except Tanot. He can go ahead and feel left out.

    the lich is our father who created us to find the most entertaining people in the land for "His Circus" filled with undead clowns. He is afraid that we'll get hurt along the way and sends scooby doo villians after us to prevent us from getting harmed.

    You make chit-chat with Ruby and the others, trying to find out what kind of music Ruby likes. "Well... I've heard an Elven song once. Didn't understand it and I have no idea what it's called, but I'll never forget the tune."
    As the time passes, you take the opportunity to actually introduce Ruby to the party, and well as tell them her skill set. As you're introducing everyone to Ruby, you realize that you don;t really know much about Newt. So you turn the topic of conversation to her. She blushes again and starts to stammer. Tabby pats her on the back, nearly knocking her down. "Well... I'm not from anywhere interesting. I'm from the Capital City, not the country like all of you. When I accidental set the cat on fire, Mittens is OK, I didn't kill her! Anyway... When I accidentally set Mittens on fire the first time my parents knew I has magic talent, so they sent me to the Wizard Raspin to train, so I would hurt anyone. I've spent the last six years under his tutelage until the Lich killed him. He left me instructions to head to the University in Vimestead and that's about it. Like I said, a boring life compared to a traveler like you and Faral and Tanot and Zanne, or even to a country life like Tabby. I've never been around living cows. Even Grue was a bandit."

    Grue coos happily at the complement. You then tell Newt that, honestly, her life is far from boring. It makes yours seem simple by comparison. But you'll try to give her a few good stories before you get to your destination.
    Newt stares at you. "I've known you less then a month. In that short amount of time we've defeated a bandit... and tollbooth, placated an entire village intent on murdering someone we just met, talk a grandfather into letting his only family explore the world for herself, AND dug up buried treasure! And you've acted like this is normal for you! I wouldn't trade this for anything right now! If you stay in Vimestead I'll attend classes, but I want to leave with you. I mean, if we accompany Faral back to her homeland, I could be one of the first non-elven wizards to visit the Elflands in CENTURIES!:

    Vimestead is how big exactly? We could probably stay there until it's time to get Faral back to the Elf Lands. That would give her a few weeks to attend classes, at the least.

    I remember some of the early threads. Vimestead is one of the largest human settlements. The Capital City is THE biggest, but Vimestead is the biggest in the area. Little villages are scattered everywhere, the Dwarf Mountains are in the east I think, and the Elflands to the west. Don't know or remember whats to the far north or far south.
    We still have at least 2 months until the Elf Roads open.

    You let Newt know shes welcome to come along. She smiles and pulls out her spellbook and starts reading. You notice that there happens to be a snake in her bag, but she doesn't seem to notice.
    Zanne's turn. You shift the conversation to her as Newt does whatever Wizards do when they read. When she sees your eyes on her she hugs Gregor defensively. "You do not wish to know of me Janis. Life has not been kind to me or my clan. There were times in my childhood when I had to dig through other peoples' garbage, eating things even a gnoll would throw away. When I was older... I have been forced to do things that would turn your stomach. Please, ask no more." Silence throughout the wagon, even Tanot's shut up at this point.
    Ruby is the first to break it. "Why didn't you fight back?"

    You apologize to Zanne, you had no idea. "Many people do not like my kind Janice. I have become used to certain things in life. Ruby, sometimes I tried. The night I can to Janice my eye was blackened." You promise her that, with you, she will never had to do anything like that. "You are a good woman. That is why I chose to come with you. I simply hope that it lasts." Gregor bleats out and stands up, walking around Zanne before settling back down on her lap. You look at Tanot, who quickly looks away. "I didn't know either Janice." He pulls his wagon behind yours making covert conversation impossible.
    Grue looks around, confused. "Did someone hurt nice Zanne food-lady? Grue like Zanne! Not let her get hurt. Grue protect! Grue protect all of you!" You have to scold him again for picking at his eyepatch, but your heart isn't really in it this time.

    Later in the day, the rain hasn't let up at all, you see a light. Getting closer you see a huge stone building. A sign in front of it proclaims it to be the JINGO INN AND TRAVELER'S REST, an elephant dances happily on the sign.
    As you get closer several young men dash out from the cover of a side building. "Take care of your horses and wagon? It's 2 silver a night with feed for the animals, and 3 silver per room per night, meals and baths are included." You give the men a few coins, plus a small tip, and head inside. Grue has to duck to get into the building, but he is able to. The common room is big, about the size of most houses. Several fires cackle merrily and steam begins rising off your damn clothes. A long bar runs along side one wall and serving wenches come in and out of the kitchen is a steam, delivering food and drink to the many tables. The place isn't what you would call packed, it's too big. But there are people everywhere.
    Tanot politely taps you on the shoulder, looking intently at the bar. "We haven;t done any real shows, so I can;t really take 5%, but I still want some of my cut." Up until now you've been holding most of the money, so you divy some of it out, giving everyone about 30 silver to spend how they please. You'll divide it all up once you get to Vimestead. Tanot immediately heads for the bar.
    Talking with the innkeeper you ask about rooms. He doesn't have anything big enough for Grue, but he;s more then welcome to sleep int he common room, it;s clean and they use it for overflow when they need to. He'll even knock a silver off for it.
    You get 5 rooms total, and he sends a scullery maid up to prepare the baths for you while you get something to eat.
    Spiced potatoes and meat served in a bread bowl seems to be the special of the evening, and grue begins to eat hungrily.
