"Don't need to worry about itching when you're friends with the local clerics, eh?" Seb laughs along with the others, before ordering some stew to line his stomach for what looks to be a night of good company and better drinks.
Umdrak just shakes his head. "You youngsters are just too much. There are natural remedies that will get rid of any ailment. This issue is finding the right one." The old dwarf rubs his bald head in thought. "Oak sap doesn't make a good shampoo. Oh well, the upside is I no longer need a shampoo. Still have my health, so could have been worse."
"I am not sure about either of those things. With this stumpy frame, I have not been able to move any quicker since the loss of my hair. Hats have fitted better." Umdrak takes a large swig of his drink before ordering another.
“Just don’t go trying many natural remedies during the check, or you’ll definitely need a cleric,” Xana teases with a wide grin, getting up to grab another drink at the bar, gesturing to Krizarith to see if she wants one too.

Ora Rangfist: level 11 cleric, Soldiers of Vord PbP.
Once satisfied with his training with the sword, Alton will sheath his rapier and draw one of his daggers. He flips it lightly in his hand before stepoing away to suddenly throw it into the dummy, drawing his second and repeating the same action into another. Those inside the tavern may hear a bit of cursing as he jumps at one of the daggers he threw a little to high.
Again, putting a scrap of paper to mark his place and closing his book, Kwisatz will reply saying "He's somewhat picky..." and then looking up at Idozu's large frame "aaahh... but you can try." and as Idozu holds up the worm Duncan ((the raven)) will snatch it from his hand and gulp it down. "I guess he's hungry!" and continuing "As for the arcane! Well! That is a fascinating topic! And really one that just about anyone can learn. Given enough time to patience. Here." as he reaches into his bag to pull another book out "this text for example, is on the simple energies all around us...." and he starts to lecture about magic for a few minutes and will either continue, if Idozu is interested, or continue for only 10 minutes, before actually noticing that he isn't.
With her third drink in hand, Xanaphia wanders over to the gnome, hearing his magic lecture and sits down next to the half-orc, curiosity peaked. She looks attentive and somewhat focused, though she’s still trying to listen to the banter in the room and joins in with it periodically.
Even a small audience is enough for Kwisatz to continue, and so he'll give a short (50-60 minute) talk about how really anyone can learn to harness magic with enough time and dedication. He'll wrap up saying "... and as you can see, with a few simple words, and this bit of fleece, I can make it appear that our captain is standing beside me" saying this he casts minor illusion to make it appear as if a gnome sized version of their captain, looking stern, directly to his side.
((Kwisatz is dressed like the d&d version of a social science professor. Think Birkenstock and jeans. But instead it's mussed grey hair, an old, but very comfy, robe, and still Birkenstocks ^^))
The door burst in and Sergeant Ironblade walks in. Torchbearers can be seen behind him waiting on the street.
“Ok Boys, … and Gals, no time for resting it seems. Get ready to become full fledged Greys. Vacation is over.” His gruff voice brining you all up on your feet.
He scans the large room.
“Crash, Sebastian, Wislon , Xanaphia and Krizarith .. “ he stops and looks at Sebastian. He growls, “Go get dressed … After I explain." he shakes his head.
"You will be Wolf Team.”
Taking a full breath he starts to explain.
“Corporal Julian Noris is waiting for you in Shoor’ Street West. A Baker’s daughter has been found dead in an alley.”
“The City Watch wants us to go and ask a few questions to the Red Suns, a group of thugs that lords over the area. The Corporal will give you an address.” He stops and look each of you inthe eye. “ I want you to go in their den to break a few fingers and remind them that they exist because we let them. Try not to kill anyone though. Too much paperwork.”
“I also want to know what happened. Get it from them. Give me a name.”
“The Corporal is under the impression that we are helping with a search of the area. Try to play along please. I would hate to have you do a full week of sewer duty.”
“Get your equipment and go meet the Corporal. “
“Don’t let me down.”
“The others come with me” we will talk as we go to our destination.
"Wow sarge, you've made Crash's day, he loves breaking fingers!" Seb says whilst rising to his feet in a jolly manner.
"And as it happens, I love lying to the City Watch, so everybody is happy!" He stands a few feet in front of the sergeant with a large grin, trying to get at least a twitch of a smile out of his commander.
When none comes, he'll let out a long whistle, "Tough crowd today, fellas and fellettes." He strolls past the sergeant into the bustling street, grabbing his pack from the hatstand near the door.
OoC: (on mobile for a few days so can't do colour!)
Prior to the sergeant coming in Idozu would’ve stayed for the whole lecture engaged and asking questions like:
”Why are there these energy fields?”.... “Do you have faith or just believe in the magic?” At the end the lecture he approaches Keisatz as he gives back his book “It appears we may share a same level of devotion, thank you for this.”
