Night Two - The Amuse-boche
We go from Panda bear to horse in the planning.
We visit Captain Hammerson at the Brastor guard he will provide the shipping schedules from the harbour master to the HDA to bring to the RWI.
Watching the wharf we see The Grace to Glory being unloaded. The load is being protected by a big 6.3’ mace wielding thug.
The Zartan is unloading people. They appear to be middle class with normal possessions.
Cream bun eating hobbits try to disguise as dwarves while they stake out the eastern dock.
Billy is in the alley in the middle so he doesn’t have to run far.
Marco stakes out the west end.
A large transaction appears to take place between the captain of the The Grace to Glory and merchant, a youth breaks cover and starts running.
Billy turns into a swan and tracks him. Pierre as a hawk tracks the swan, Jaycey as a hobbit high on sugar disguised as a dwarf follows them both...
The youth bolts to the back door of the Rolling Wagon Inn. Turns out the kid was late for work, no chefs were harmed in this investigation. A quick dead goblin later (that’s Brastor for lager) and Billy is back to the dock.
The stake out continues. We have been supremely distracted.
The day passes and we watch a few vagrant thieves with appalling technique and nothing more significant.
Back at the Red Wolf Inn there is a satchel from Captain Hammerson addressed to Marco. The vessels due are:
Flaming Dawn large cargo vessel from Seagate in three days.
Swift Sparrow from West carrying upper class passengers in a week.
The Bold Whale, a cargo vessel from Seagate due in two weeks.
Problem at the inn when we can’t remember who we checked in as last time. Pro tip we will check in as the same dwarves tomorrow as yesterday. A bit tricky for the hobbits to keep up.
Pierre confirms that he can turn water into beer even after six beers.
Vigor the slacker gets into a drinking game with a dwarf. Wins with some assistance from the party illusionist then slacks off and doesn’t sit watch again that night.
We watch the wharf for a few more days, checking out the alleys and hidey holes in the area.
We pace ourselves at the Red Wolf Inn for the next few nights.
On Frysday we spy moves afoot on the dock....
