The search for Brother Dalton, part 2

As we play, occasionally we'll close a thread and open a new one to keep the size of threads (and relative complexity) down to a dull roar. Here's where we store the closed posts from the history of Errant Road.

"While you were running around yelling, I had a perfectly civil conversation with him before leaving with him. I'm the one who insisted on a public venue - here - for our chat. What I didn't do was make a scene or get hauled off by guards. If you had behaved yourself, maybe you could have joined us."

As they made their way to the airship, Tim hissed back, "Didn't your mother teach you not to go with strangers?" and trudged along in sullen silence. With the wizard's demonstrated powers, he could've teleported Desiree straight into a slave cage, or a dark alley full of his compatriots, a foot above the ground so the fall would've stunned her. And in this lawless port, even if she'd been abducted in public, who would protect her? The law didn't exist. The "police" were corrupt and ineffectual. The Eisenfaust would simply want their share of her sale price. And apparently the local Temple had imported the most ridiculous clowns that ever wore the Cloth, who'd rather attack a strange woman than shield her. Poor judgment indeed to trust to the kindness of strangers here.

As he walked along, he reflected. No, her mother probably hadn't taught her any such thing. She'd sent her out into the world to be watched over by Rose. And Rose seemed to think a couple of girls walking off with a powerful wizard, a total stranger, in a town like this was perfectly fine -- even to have some hostility to Tim for trying to stop it from happening. The "yelling" he'd been doing had been calling on the guards for help, not a crime anywhere unless those guards were corrupt, and the whole damnable scene still felt foul. He supposed he would have to pray for Desiree's safety, because neither she nor Rose had much concept of it.

OOC: OK, so we're on the way. New thread open, with a title that may be ... provocative.
