" I ll take you to the Dove, it 's a very nice place." Dan takes you out toward the north of town. " I m sorry for asking this but I need to know what you are doing here ? My men told me you are looking for someone called Fender."

Dan seems to be fishing for information. You think he knows who the mage is but for some reason it is a secret.
"Thank you for the escort" Kwisatz says ((insight: 19)), adding "Regarding this Fender character. The Grey are investigating the disappearance of a mage in Waterdeep. We are the team sent here to follow a lead that mentioned the name 'Fender'. If you could point us in his direction that would also be greatly appreciated."
Idozu from what you can gather the town as seen some strange things. A group of youths have come back with a bunch of dragonmen and told the villagethat they are civilised and nice and that they are setting them up in an old mill a day away from the village. Then the group left to go explore a cave.
The villagers are also talking about the death and mysterious disappearance of a family living in the forest to the north west. Several men have gone and investigate. Aong them is a cleric of the Illmater
This village is used to travelers and such but these news have the common folks on edge.
Dan smiles at Kwisatz. " I m not sure what you are expecting of me but i ll see that the word is spread that you are looking for someone called Fender. Might be that someone knows who he is." he thinks for a second then adds , " Unless you are afraid it will spook him."
Alton continues to keep to himself occasionally looking around the building to make sure that nothing happens with his companions. "He makes a point. It may scare this Fender off if we go around asking to much about him. If he is hiding he may have taken another name."
"Very well." Dan replies. "Get a good night sleep then we will take you to whoever you need to talk to. Things have been a bit strange in the village for the last days. You will probably hear about it."
Dan takes his leave but Samuel stays since he ended his shift and wants to relaxe.
The town goes to sleep a bit later than usual but it is that time of the year and merchants are on the road.
The night of rest is good for all of you and though you are keen on finding the mage and going back to your friend the easy living of the common folks here seems far simpler. There is a conviviality that is almost unheard of in Waterdeep. Breakfast is served when you arrive in the common room. The twins are hard at work and putting plates on the tables.
An old woman is waiting for you at a table and one of the tins points her to you.
She looks like she is in her sixties, with silver hair and a stubborn look to her. She smiles nicely when you approach her.
"I heard you are looking for Fender. You won't find him if he doesn't want it. He has been hiding from evil for most of his adult life." She waves a hand to stall you from talking. " My Lady, " she emphasis on the word, " Protects him and he will do anything to right his wrongs, not that I know what they are."
"You'll need to ask the Lady of Magic (Mystra ) for help and I have a hidden altar in my house."
"Though the gods are all around, I'll let one of my more devout friends ask the Lady for help... Though if you could tell us anything at all you know of this Fender that'd be very helpful. Have you any idea for how long he has been hiding out near town?"Kwisatz asks
" Fender came about a decade ago. I know who he is because the lady told me but I do not know where heis. " She takes a deep breath and adds " He was once part of a very dark organisation called the Zentharim but he betrayed them to save others and he has been hiding ever since." She looks at each of you with her piercing sparkling eyes, " I m sorry but I do not know you and I would not betray him for anything. The Lady will provide."
She look at Kwisatz and smiles. "I think you would be perfect to ask for the Lady's help"
Umdrak stifles a laugh as the woman suggests Kwis talks to a god. "I am sorry I did not catch your name. Maybe we gain favour from the Lady of Magic by mearly knowing you. We understand your hestiation at giving information to complete strangers but we are in search of a missing wizard and Fender may have infomation that is vital in finding him in time."
"Honestly, that's something we hope he may be able to help us with... His name was one of very few leads. It seems they may have had a business relationship of some kind." Kwisatz replies, adding "We'd not ask you to betray any confidence, we simply hope he can assist us in our search."
Cecilia leads you to her shop that also serves as her house.
The interior is stacked with a large variety of cloth. Types and colors. Her working table is clean and well ordered.
She leads you in the back and through her well maintained house to a small garden In the back. On the side against the exterior wall is a small house like shrine with a large golden star (the symbol of Mystra) and a blue candle giving a large blue flame.
