Unfortunately when I woke up some of the people from last night’s aborted event were still hanging around the graveyard. These people really take their dogfighting seriously. I was considering my options when they were distracted by Lord Sonst coming to visit his beloved mother – did this guy visit his dead mom EVERY day? I used this diversion, and my ring giving me the dress of a grave-digger, to slip out of the area.
I felt a twinge of guilt when looking back I saw Sonsts being accosted by a gang of ruffians but there wasn’t much I could do. The caravan is leaving in two days and I am short on funds so I’m going to have to forgo my plan to deal with Piltis before I leave. Irksome, but necessary. I sold my magic Collar in the marketplace and then did something I hate doing, I took a risk. I put together a simple heist of a butcher shop and came away with 20 gold, without any issues luckily.
With these funds I was able to get my two guard dogs, some more appropriate clothes for the road, and hired two bodyguards for the round-trip. I chose one that looked tough and one who seemed kind of soft figuring that maybe the ones that don’t look dangerous really are and if not either way I’d be covered. I spent the rest of the day working with my new dogs so we could get used to each other.

Behind the curtain – I used the Heist rules, which allow you to earn capital without spending any money. I think it’s a bit of a stretch to say you can plan the Heist and execute in the same day, but technically it does say “any” time in the next week. I consider the bodyguards to be trained hirelings
