I have a scheme in mind that is going to require me to look my best, which I certainly don’t right now after my time in captivity and on the road, so I’ve decided to take it easy for a few days. Elth and I took a trip to the Cardshire Arms to check in on Dorehe to find that she no longer worked there – having had a falling out with the owner, whose name I finally learned was Claire Conrad. Asking around I found that he was universally loved for some reason and that his prized possession was a Bag of Tricks – which he often used to amuse his friends. I asked around about Dorehe as well but wasn’t able to get any information. We rounded out the morning with a trip to the town hall to figure out what this deed was for but there wasn’t much information other than that it was a small parcel of land.
After lunch I spent several hours at 100 Waves getting myself cleaned up, introducing Dorehe to indoor bathing, and honestly just taking some time to luxuriate. I have to admit this girl is a looker. I asked how she would feel helping me out with Electrum or Gridley, I figured if she was willing to steal a small fortune from her father she might be game, but she blushed so furiously at the idea of seduction that I quickly abandoned that idea. This world would eat her up if she was a runaway on her own, it’s a good thing she stumbled across someone like me who will protect her from the cruel world.
Feeling much refreshed I spent a few more hours gathering information – finding out that Erist is in town and where he’s staying, more about Claire’s usual routine and where he lives, as well as breathing some life back into my vigilante rumor.
After that I turned in early. I could tell that Elth wanted to do something more but that she was too timid to go out on her own. It’s a sad commentary on her agrarian upbringing that Graltontown was enough to cow her.
