"It's good to have you lot back," Terryn stated idly as they walked along, hardly glancing to his Brothers. "I hope you're prepared for a grueling campaign. I hardly know what sort of person we're dealing with here, but they've got numbers, that's for sure."

Head to the location De Plume marked on the map, but not before having the regiment scout the location first. Never know when she'll decide to just ambush me, y'know?

"Alright, let me summarize this. A man starts spreading information in inn and taverns. Nobody knows who he is or what he wants. The information he is giving is accusing the Lords of Ligoria of being traitors and cowards, but he refuses to present himself in public. No one can back his accusations with more evidence - the only thing you've got is one witness who refused to show himself in public, or even tell you his name. And you decided to take the information he gave you and use it to accuse me and Nikephoros of various crimes...

Are you truly imbeciles?"


Kathos' voice was hard. It rang across the hall, and not a single man could ignore what he was saying. He was charismatic, and convincing these men that he was right would be terribly easy.

"An unknown man starts spreading tales to ruin our reputation and presents his 'evidences' to important men without revealing his name. The only thing that his information can do is spread chaos in the city and destroy the credibility of the current rulers while making Laythe look more honorable. Knowing all of this, you decide to go ahead and accuse us of terrible crimes without even considering the possibility that someone might be trying to manipulate you? Are you kidding me? Fools!"

Kathos closed his eyes and calmed himself for a few seconds.

[2+1] vs [6-2] People seem to believe that parts of the reports are embellished, if not fabrications. They still firmly believe that the reports are too detailed to be completely dismissed. Prior events and rumors were what allowed you to take over, many of those werent the best accepted by the population in hindsight.

Laythe stormed off, continuing onto Piata.

[56] You make good time to Piata, former land of scholars. Your trip is uneventful, and your arrival to Piata is welcomed warmly to the point of uncomfortable.

Meet with the current head of the Piatan council.

In Talama...
A unfamiliar figure approached house Alanis manor in the city steadily, unsure if they'd leave with a botched job or a successful one. Only time would tell in that respect, and only if they attempted this.

Soon, they approached the door, knocking on it then waiting...

The Crimson Guard sends one man down to speak with the captain, while they watch for hostile intentions.

[4] Of course its a trap. Or at least, it could be a trap. It looks like De Plume is willing to meet with you in good faith, as the bulk of her army is nearby whilst her and her personal guard are waiting at the marked location. Your men seem unable to get a solid feel for the number of regiments she possesses. You thusly approach. She seems to be in bad spirits.

"Ah. You're back. So do you want the job? And whats yer price?"

Tala walked backed to her estate slowly, thinking about what had just transpired...they had given her a nod for establishing such a potent cover, and keeping it. She had been thanked on her work during the siege of Mileth. They had even congratulated her on her wedding-what better cover then a married Noble?

Indeed.

But, as for actual information, or orders-they had been silent. Continue observation. While the Death of Turin was tragic, they accepted it as unavoidable. And he needed to be replaced. And one of them has suggested Pasha...that was going to be an interesting conversation...

Now, Tala saw her front door. There was a man there. He knocked, and seemed to be waiting.

Surely, they wouldn't...when she wasn't expecting it...

Tala had her knife hidden in her palm, calling out to the figure in a sweet voice.

"You there, declare yourself. I am Baroness Alanis, and this is my home..."

She was smiling, but her mind was already calculating the arc of the blade as it sank into his throat...violent thoughts echored.

"I wish to speak to Tala Alanis on behalf of my employer, I assume that is you madam?"

The courier bowed after finishing that sentence, in respect of the noble he was talking to.

"Yes. I am Tala Alanis. Why don't we step inside and talk?"

He was a half inch from death. Tala was still smiling.

Tala stepped past him and opened the door. Her senses tuned...

"...Let's get on with it, hmm?"

She led him into the parlor, and began stoking a fire. It had been a long day.

"What message do you have for me?"

She knew if he was going to strike, he would do so now.

If he was going to strike, now would be an extremely bad time. Pasha had almost opened the door when the man had knocked, but then Dwarmin and Taricus ninja'd the hell out of SerCon he had heard Tala speak and elected to stay quiet and watch from the shadows. Right now, he was standing a few feet behind the stranger, his knife drawn. If he made the slightest move that could be interpreted as hostile toward Tala, he was getting his hair grabbed, his head yanked back, and his throat slit savagely. Trying to assassinate Pasha himself was one thing... even thinking of harming his wife was another entirely.

The courier followed Tala in, taking a seat on one of the parlour's chairs. And thoroughly ignoring Pasha.

"I believe now would be appropriate to tell you my employer's name: Laythe Ralia. She sent me in hopes of gaining your assistance in a future plan of hers. I do believe that it will not come cheaply though..."

Now, the blade really was drawn, casting a flickering light from the fireplace. Tala's voice changed. It was more...controlled. This could be a loyalty test from Nikephoros, she thought. It would be a good one.

She sat across from him, leg's crossed. Her blade stayed motionless in her right hand.

"...Oh, we like to refer to her as the The Mad Dog Queen these days.

You must be brave, to come here and say her name. Or stupid. I wonder how much she paid you to take this message to me...

You do know, she's the One who slaughtered her own people in the streets, as she hastened to escape with her looted treasury? I certainly hope she had a good excuse prepared for that."
