The Road to Salaband

For in-universe game play. Journey through both familiar and foreign settings, explore lost ruins and forgotten cities, and try to bring light to the darkness of the world... or, you know, blow stuff up. Either way.

"What happens to your prisoner is no concern of mine." Jade replied airily. "The Falkenrohr can free him, hang him or hump him for all I care. And their opinion on the old bastard with the plant fetish is for the birds. Once I get my merchandise back, and maybe pay a little visit to Ester's blacksmith, I'll have everything I need to shut him and his operation down."

There was no bluff in 'Jasmine's' tone. In truth she was warming to the idea of working out her grievances while putting one of favourite toys to use in the process. The 'Golem Blade' was sorely overdue a live test.

"Just be careful you don't tell people how little you care," said Udo. "I think people around here watch out for anyone heading to those woods, think it's bad luck and stuff. Better you don't let anyone know."

They reached town without incident. Aden was returned to the lockup behind the Laughing Troll, and Udo and Jade had drinks inside. Whether or not she was expecting this, Udo behaved like a perfect gentleman, chatting about old adventures and heroic deeds but not trying any moves. And when the drinks and talk were over, and it was time to return to his Sensei, that was what he did.

Further inquiries revealed that Jade's goods were still safely locked up, and the Falkenrohr had confirmed that they weren't stolen - or at least weren't stolen from anyone who was going to complain about it. They arranged for her to be able to sell the through Scorz's, which she would be able to do over the next several days; and while the Falkenrohr would take a sizable "handling fee" and "protection tax" off the top, the result would still leave her some operating funds, including money to spend at the blacksmith for whatever new armaments she had in mind. And on the first night, she found it easy to climb to the roof of the inn and recover her father's pistol.

In short, things were looking up for her, and now all she had to do was stay out of trouble...fat chance!

[OOC: My recommendation is this: If Jade is planning a little expedition against the Vine Wizard in the Mushroom Woods, start a new thread, with a title like "Farrel - Vengeance in the Mushroom Woods" or something like that - and post her preparations there. Then if Browncoat returns, Angrist and Udo can continue their adventure in this thread; and if he does not, then maybe Udo will turn up somewhere else later.]
