The next moring Capote summons the party to his office. Silently, the party walks the empty hall of The Shrouded Edge compound. Party becuase they hardly know each other, and partly becuase of the uneasy nights rest they just woke up from, no one said a word.
"Its good to see you are all awake." says Capote as the entered "I would like you to meet Phalla"
A young women stood next to Capote desk. He eyes, examining the razor sharpe edge of the sword she was inspecting in her hands. Her eyes never left the sword, but every one of the party members found sense her focus was on guaging thier quailities and not the sword.
"She will be your hilt." explained Capote
"Our what?" said Stormy, asking the question that was on everyones minds.
"We find it is best to send an experienced menber of the organization along with new groups. Just like the hilt of a sword directs its blade, so will she direct you on this mission. I want you to travel to Amberbrook. You leave at once. On this trip I would like each of you to choose an alias. We find its best to keep our identities hidden. Griffin Stone, you needn't bother with an alias."
And with that the party follows Phalla on their Southward trip to Amberbrook. After traveling for most of the morning in silence. Phalla can no longer resist the question that has been rolling around her mind, and stops suddenly and turns around to face the somber group.
"Why would you agree to work for an organization that would drug, kidnap and put your life in danger?"
"The test wasn't all too difficult actually." boasts Stormy
"I was drugged, I just thought I passed out from a cheap bottle of ale." Griffin mumbles to himself.
Suddenly Phalla's eyes narrow. Having heard the russle in treeline as well, Griffin slowly draws one of his scimitars and looks around. A group of humans and halfling bandits attack the group hoping to make some easy money.
The party kicks their ass with the help of Phalla.
Afterward the party continues to Amberbrook. Once arriving Phalla announced that she was leaving the group and would return later. Stormy and Griffin Stone decided to spend the down time drinking at the local tavern, Swan and Tomato. Shortly after getting their drinks a young man runs into the bar and announce that some woman just got into a fight with several thugs at another bar The Craftsman and the Hog. Griffin Stone and Stormy finish their drinks and decide to go check it out.
Encounter 2: A bunch of thugs
Upon arriving the the second bar they find Phalla, Wrath, and Acitonn Sovelis fighting a group of thugs. Griffin Stone and Stormy join in and together the group quickly dispatch the thugs. Afterward Griffin steps gingerly over the nearest body and walks directly to the bar calling out "Barkeep…?"
"I guess he ran off when the fighting started… I'll just help myself" says Griffin as he reaches behind the bar and grabs the nearest bottle and a glass.
