Montagem 8, Year 887 (New Imperial Calendar)

Today is the last day I had paid to stay with Alice, but she was so over the moon about me filling in for her at work so she said I could stay another week free of charge.  A paltry reward if ever there was one.  She was still pretty sickly and wanted to stay home and rest again with me taking her place at the Leadyhead house, but I was able to pump her up enough that she felt like she could do her daily work.  I figured she’d probably collapse sometime around noon.

I spent the morning going around to different shops to buy various items to make a passable disguise kit, had a minted pea soup for lunch and then spent the rest of the day singing for a few silver.  I saw one of Piltis’s goons watching me for a while.

In the evening I started spreading a rumor about household servants, tired of their treatment, plotting to kill their masters.  I’m not sure why, I guess a girl just needs to have some fun every now and then.  Then I spent some time asking around for some “brave adventurers” who might want to take on the terrible worg of the woods.  I treated myself to barbecued tiger fish with papaya before spending some time asking around about Rince Electrum.  Turns out his wife is an actress, and not a successful one, which is causing some strain in their marriage. 

I returned to Alice’s cottage where she had the most interesting tale to tell about Master Leadyhead’s legal issues.  I told her that if she felt she could without being presumptuous she should let him know that my cousin is a lawyer.  She hugged me and said that when I first moved in she wasn’t sure about me but now she felt I was a godsend.  I accepted her flattery with my customary humility and grace.

Behind the curtain:  I rolled an event and got Rivalry but I’m not sure what that would mean for Ela so I’ll delay that until tomorrow so I can think about it.  I decided to treat spreading rumors like a Crafting check instead of what they have outlined in Inner Sea Intrigue – for these purposes it seems like something you should be able to make progress on rather than just yes/no .
