    Agreed.
    Like, someplace over the horizon ?

    • Regaining his composure dremlar looks at the 3 dead orks. "Ok so when do we leave and where are we going? Because I don't want to be here when there freinds arive looking for them" point at the dead orks.

      • "I've got the two horses here.."

        Ayanda joins the others in the square and quickly searches bodies of the Orcs for anything interesting,

          • -The boy says "Buseos, but I'm called Bus". The boy is slight of stature and thin...."This man came to my village. He said he needed someone to steal a stone for him. The magistrate tried to run him out, but He killed him....I'm not really sure how. He picked me because I'm small and fast, and said that if I didn't get the stone for Him, He'd kill the rest of the village. I was supposed to bring the stone back, and He said He would leave us alone."

            -The rest of the group catches up, Bruno helping Wong stay on the horse, and Dremlar riding the other. You walk away from the Jen'tara mountains for several days, putting space between you and the probable bounties incurred. Ayanda looks but for now it appears that no one is following. Coincidentally you're headed near, but not straight to, the village that Bus is from.

            Fitz keeps the stone in his possession, Ferghus being an obvious deterrent for the boy. It is black, faceted like a diamond, but some of you think you can see a glint of red fire within it if the angle and light is right. Now obviously revealed as something a bit more than a laborer or wagon driver, Ali stays cloaked and relatively quiet, especially around the boy, but Moze and Ayanda notice that he is also extremely alert, maybe even paranoid.

            (Feel free to have conversations about what you've seen and heard. Dremlar, Xangr, and Fitz can ask me questions about the stone.....your knowledge of such things will reflect in what I tell you.)

              Ayanda takes a moment to chat with Ali, joining him out of earshot of the rest.

              Offering him a half-empty bottle of wine he took with him from the tavern earlier,

              "Care for a drink sir, those orc-friends may not have been very smart or friendly but their wine isn't too shabby.."

              He carefully observes Ali's reaction, while at same time pretending not to be overly interested.

              "Your help came in rather handy back there, as it did before - a worthwile addition to our little band of brothers here..."

              "Still, in throwing your fortune in with ours you may have involved yourself beyond hope of compensation, why didn't you rejoin the caravan ?"

                • -The kid looks at Dremlar. "I don't know much. Only he said that I had to find the black one with the red sparkles. Any other gem and he said he'd kill them. Funny....he looks a lot like you, with those silly robes and such. Maybe you know him?" You try to get a read on him, but a human child is quite different from your normal company, and so difficult to read.

                  -Ali gives a look of disgust at the wine; "I begin to wonder where it is you come from, to think Orcish wine is palatable." Instead he offers a pull from his flask of a very strong brandy of unknown origin. "As for my reasons, I never spend too much time in one place, and that was my third trip in Kag's caravan. Now it seems that there are things in motion, things which once moved and were stilled. Perchance maybe the gods chose that I be in this point of time?" Ali sits back, shrouded in his cowl, and looks into the darkness, never allowing his eyes towards the fire.

                  • Look, word of what we just did is bound to get back to the other orcs, eventually. I think that we need to get out and leave along a path that does NOT take us through Orc lands, or the land of the Firbolg we just helped to defeat.
                    Then we can worry about paying this kid's village a visit.

                        "Don't mind if I do sir,.."

                        Ayanda has a taste and returns the flask, "part human at least and he knows his liquor" he thinks somewhat reassured -

                        "As for my reasons, I never spend too much time in one place, and that was my third trip in Kag's caravan. Now it seems that there are things in motion, things which once moved and were stilled. Perchance maybe the gods chose that I be in this point of time?"
                        "The gods ? ... maybe so,..
                        when two separate events occur however, simultaneously pertaining to the same object, I prefer to pay strict attention, rather than attribute divine intervention, .."

                        Ali sits back, shrouded in his cowl, and looks into the darkness, never allowing his eyes towards the fire.
                        "Expecting company tonight ?" - Ayanda tilts his head, apparently listening rather then looking,

                        "I'm fairly certain nothing followed us, nothing mundane at least.." Ayanda grins "..still, I'll go and have a round of the campsite, see you later friend."

                        While getting up, Ayanda tries to discern whether the last word provoked a noticeable reaction.

                        There's an alternative however, a couple of us could accompany the boy, have a talk to the mage, and inform him that if he wants the stone, he'll best leave the villagers alone and deal with us -

                        We could set up wherever we want and wait for him, preferably - as mentioned - a long way from here ?"

                          In a low voice; "Sure, just as long as one of those "couple" does not include Ali, did you see the look he gave that thing?"

                              "That is a very good idea. We need to lure him out of his home ground, we must all so keep the gem far away from the meeting ground and bind the kid both for his and our own safty"

                              • Ali, while with the group, still keeps to himself....he is unawares of any particular plans.

                                After a few more days of journeying, you come to headwaters of a small river. The boy indicates that his village is in the valley. Ayanda and Ali set the camp and check for signs of an interloper, while the rest of you discuss who will be going down to see this possible mage and escort the boy, as well as deciding who will keep custody of the stone.

                                (note, all players are suitably healed at this point....Nick is taking a leave of absence, so Bruno is ineligible for either role....he's extra muscle when needed).

                                During the journey, you've all noticed Wong behaving, well, more strangely than usual. While he often meditates, as monks are wont to do, since the battle at the village he has been carrying around several scrolls, and his meditations seem more ritualistic, purposeful even.
