    Well, it appears that Moze's plan to ingratiate himself with the local theive's guild and improve his standing with the group at the same time might be going a little awry... but, damnit, he really does hate bullies.

    (chaotic good, is there a bigger P.I.T.A. of an alignment? I think I have a look for Mozenwraith, but can you imagine Charlie Bronson in Leather armor swinging a sword?)

    "He insults us without cause....now what is he going to do about it?"
    Time to use that phenomenal Dex for intimidation purposes-
    Never taking his eyes or his aim off the Orc that just said that, he steps off the wagon, landing lightly on his feet and stepping up to within ten feet of that Orc.
    "You die first, understand me? Your friends might get me in a rush, but not before I drill a tunnel straight through your skull."
    He ain't kidding.

    grrrr....
    Moze' makes a sour face, and takes a reluctant step back.
    He'll give the peace-maker a chance, Wong is part of his team, after all. But he's not going to be all that thrilled if cooler heads prevail, again.

      ...One says. "That's what the one with the crossbow said Zurbag", says another. The third reaches over his shoulder and hefts a mace,..
      "Three Orcs ? Shouldn't be much of a problem then.." , Ayanda scans the surroundings to see if anyone else has taken an interest in the scene, and is giving any indication of willingness to intervene.

      He also keeps an eye on the bushes the boy disappeared into, assuming him to still be there, should he emerge from them and try to blend in with the crowd he'll try and track/follow him.

          Xangr replies " Chasing a small boy with one jewel while you have many seems pretty unfair. To me that is the definition of a bully."

            Xangr shrugs off the statement " Do you really want to know? Because the child has asylum till things cool down. So we can either negotiate or fight."

              Ayanda takes Xangr by the arm trying to prevent him from drawing unnecessary attention from the orcs,

              "Carefull please sir, they haven't noticed us yet and our position here is quite good to take them unaware should matters escalate..or should reinforcements show up"

              Moving a bit closer he says in hushed voice "It is no ordinary jewel either, did you catch the look on our mage's face as it nearly hit the ground ?"

              "I believe the fugitive boy is still hidden in the bushes over there, I'd like to question him.."

                " I be quiet and watch the orcs. You go and try to get the boy someplace safe." I have a feeling that jewel has special properties that both sides may know about. "Xangr says in a quiet voice.

                  {Note, the boy is no where to be found at the moment}

                  The possible leader nearly swings at Moze before Wong gets in the way. Then Xangr's comment only infuriates him more. But that crossbow is still firmly aimed at his face, and he knows that they're outnumbered. As the group gathers round and squares off with them, he decides to talk a moment, and laughs.

                  "You strangers have no idea who we are? I am Zurbag of the Gem Clan. And that boy you helped escape stole something valuable from us. Now you can either help us get it back, or fighting the three of us won't be your worry. My Boss has a hundred guards that will be hunting you if you refuse our offer."

                        Still pretending to have no part in the argument, Ayanda moves to where he saw the boy disappear, he'll use his ranger skills to quickly check for any tracks or clues, or perhaps even the odd chance the boy hid or dropped anything there.

                        If he does find something he'll silently take note, and erase/remove it, making sure any subsequent investigation doesn't stumble on the same clue.

                          Well Zurbag, if you wait a moment our 'truth-reader' will be along.

                          Care for a drink while we wait?

                            Scumbag of the Flem Clan? Accounts for your manners. As for the three of you, if you can't cope with one boy, you won't cope in a fight. 100 of you might break a sweat though, and therefore worth the exercise. However..........

                            Now just in case the child is actually a changling/shifter/demon etc, and thus fair game, what would we be really hunting for, and what's it worth to you .

                              Question Tac? is he willing to wait?

                              If so I'll believe them and commence the search for the kid.

                              I'm lawfull and have no choice in the matter...

                                The trio stands there for a moment in irritated frustration. Obviously they're outnumbered, but some of these strangers want to talk, and others obviously just want to fight. And so the other two edge up closer, their weapons ready, while Zurbag answers the one actual question: "He's a thief, we never saw him before. And what he's got is a large black sapphire. As to what it's worth, it's worth me forgetting that you have no manners, and forgetting to put a bounty on your head that would bring every mercenary for a hundred leagues to bring me your skin"
