Rawdet another Barmaid does greet with some uneasy but you as well Thank you for coming what kind of drink do you prefer we serve (the alcohols) as for food we do have little made Fermented Fish made here She sets up the food order. (The fish are like fish we have in our world just not made out of the fishoid like races)
Darius You find out one of Tax collector is a Piranhaoid medium height named Melvi and wears chain mail and carries a long sword. His schedule is to come every 3 days and today is the third day. He's left handed and is the son of One of Zerka's 4 sons. He is very boastful and has two guards around him at almost all times except when he goes home to the razor trench. Which is a (3 day travel away it's just very very deep) there is another one who isn't related to him but similar wear and schedule more ruthless attitude named Rin doesn't have bodyguards they both take one half of the village each Rin is at the potion shop. Melvi and his body guards the Tavern
Melvi kicks open the door his sword over his shoulder his guards walking beside him.Oh Barmaid, Barmaids come over quickly a serve me I am starving as you know I am a very busy man and impatient at that if you screw anything up my dad will hear about thisas he does so he sits in a chair and puts his feet on the tableAnd well your at it make it on the house. They within a seconds stop whatever they are doing and serve him probably the fastest service you have ever seen. this same sort of thing is happening in the potion shop but he is collecting the tax from him well asking for free potions.
If crocodiles had eyebrows, Rawdet Sun would be raising his at this behavior. He patiently thanks the barmaid when his meal arrives and asks after an ale as well. He tips her well for the service. As the spoiled brat of a tax collector continues, Rawdet Sun clamps his jaws together in irritation.
Althaea looks up at the barmaid and smiles a bit, Ah, I would like to try some of that Saka you mentioned, and surprise me with a meal if you don't mind. She speaks politely and respectfully, before looking over at Aeoli hearing his words. Ah, thank you for that warning.
She looks up hearing Melvi and raises a brow, when she is brought her food and drink she leans in. Who is that if you do not mind me asking..? She keeps her voice low, not looking at Melvi but giving a subtle gesture towards him to let the barmaid know who she is referring to.
The Barmaid bows a little Thank you kind sir. She walks away and gets what you ask.
The Barmaid by Althaea Oh that man he is Lord Zerka's Son's Son Melvi. (Grand kid)She gets you the Saka and whispers His dad doesn't come here too often but is defiantly a ruthless one it's good news his son is only here twice in the week or i'd go nuts but I can't it be suicide. She stops talking so she doesn't say too much but also alert attention. (All of you know who Zerka is and what for somewhat just haven't seen him)
As Sirena finishes her reading of the books and is satisfied to have learned much more about this place, she places the books back where she finds them and sorts out her notes for safe keeping in her bag for later then makes her way over to the tavern for a drink. Again, she decides to walk when entering and eyes the man with his feet on the table, finding that to be rather rude, even if a place like this, but his guards made her feel rather uneasy. Big man with no class, of course. At most she scoffs quietly to herself and sits down in any vacant table and waits to be served, taking out some of her notes of other previous places she's visited recently to properly file them away in her bag.

Sirena is greeted and served what she asks for by the Barmaids in the Tavern.
Melvi when finishes and leaves Well I am off don't forget I'll be back here in 3 days with Rin again to collect again hahaha. As he walks through the door (he was collecting before he came into the Tavern)
Yes to an extant Darius (Rin believes what you have to say and falls for your plan I don't see a save for this spell but it's fine so your plan does workout but you also make he Potion shop person fall asleep to) roll the 5d8 and see what happens
Aeoli struggled to stay seated, he had to recite prayers quietly to himself to hold back from jumping and striking at that spawn of evil in the tavern.. those sitting close to him probably notice the anger in his eyes when Melvi walked in, and how hard he was trying to stay calm.
After Melvi leaves, Aeoli turn back to Althaea and whispers to her, almost to himself though:
Never a good sign when the spawn of Zerka is around....
He then realizes that he doesn’t really know the Kuatoa sitting there, and she may not feel the same way, so adds:
... but I guess we gotta pay taxes right!?
He eyes her to see her reaction to all this, all the while eating his fried plankton.
The shop keeper does fall asleep and Darius does leave. Now that you killed Rin are you gonna keep the body/dispose of it because he was holding the tax money on him from the places he had collected from the village.
Rawdet keeps his ears open for the tone of conversation as Melvi leaves. He's sure that one of Zerka's minions is responsible for Kesh's disappearance, but has no evidence. He wants to know if any others here might be willing to stand against a tyrant. Tear down some authority figures.
You can see that in the Tavern there isn't one person in there that likes Melvi over half of them want to hit him or have him killed. They just know it isn't wise to attack him. For fear of his father or forbid Zerka comes to the village it begone in a instant.
Althaea eyes Melvi a bit, pretending to mind her own business if he even turned his head. She didn't want to risk getting in a fight here, not if Melvi was related to Zerka. She had heard a few stories but even if those were just rumors, she didn't want to take any chances of innocent people being caught in this.
She turns her head to look at Aeoli once Melvi is gone and sips her drink, closing her eyes. Oh no, you are right. It is never a good sign to see one of them lurking anywhere.
Afterwards she gestures for the barmaid to come over, Ah sorry to bother you, how much was Melvi's meal? If possible I would like to pay for it.. since it genuinely bothers me that I didn't see him pay for his meal neither tip for the service here.
So just as Darius kills and finishes what he is doing. (None of you see this) Out in the depths of the Razor trench in Melvi's father's house he is sitting at his table where suddenly on the chess board a pawn piece disintegrates. He eyes this Rin has fallen and is dead was it the village or someone else. Meanwhile his sister Pirah is there Well Drax how unfortunate it seems you lost a piece so what's your next move. he turns to here and says life for a life Pirah if I can't find who did then I'll make an example in the village to those who need to learn there place no one will ever raise against me again or Father!.) end of cut scene.
In the Tavern. The barmaid thank you kindly you don't have to but much appriceated.
Darius you would already know where to go and head there and claim your reward.
