Hox tilts his head, "Yes and no. Hox take thing, then hooded man throw knives at Hox. But no one follow Hox, Hox made sure." Hox then picks up the large gem, marveling at it's luster. He glances to the smaller ones as he looks to Killian, "Hox not know. Hox saw shiney, wanted it. But...maybe trade small shinies for know of Sal female." Hox says he clutches the big gem protectively.
"If they are going to hunt him, he will be found sooner or later. However, you cannot hunt without leaving a trail. If we keep our eyes and ears out we can pick up the hunters trail long before they could hope to catch our little friend." As Gruun talks his nose can be see twitching slightly
Zane is thoughtful, "Interesting. So Sal is a prisoner that escaped and we are looking for her. Hox is a goblin who escaped and some people are looking for him. Might we create a rumor that we are willing to trade certain information about Hox for similar information about Sal?"
"Or possibly more in general we could ask around what one could do to profit from having found something or someone."
Zane looks around the room and then it becomes clear.
"Gruun - you or me? And Hox and Killian, would you have any suggestions on how to do such an approach? Do thieves, no offence Hox, have some kind of a code for these things?"
You return to the area of Luskan where you first appeared from the portal in Sundabar. Though you remember that the building resembled a warehouse, and stood out among the small dock buildings surrounding it, it seems the building has somehow moved; either that or it no longer exists. After ten minutes trying to sort it out, a voice whispers to you from the shadows of a small building to the side.
"Over here," Roccar says, motioning you into the ruins of a small hovel.
"The warehouse is still here, it's just hidden now. Can't take a chance on anybody stumbling across it," Roccar explains. "Why are you here? I can't imagine you've tracked Sal down already. Hox's shinies have caused trouble, haven't they?"
