Kai glances to the redbrand. "Do you want him conscious or just carryable? If we wake him up, he may alert people and turn this to look bad on us. I could... PROBABLY carry him? And if we're asked about it, we could say he drank too much? Drape something over the cuffs to hide them?"
(How heavy does this redbrand feel estimate wise?)
She also moves to try to help Magaret hide the wolfhound. "Here... Maybe try this?"
Sleight of hand? : 6
(Wow. Kai is not used to hiding dead bodies I guess XD )
"I just need him strong enough to throw over my shoulders without killing him Kai Anyway will have to gag him. Did you see that one that ran towards the Stonehill? We may be doing all this for nothing anyway"
She shakes her head tears a strip of cloth off the redbrands clothing ties it around his head sticks it in his mouth
Starts to Walks over to Barthans about to knock but stops realizing how hurt she is putting her hand on her shoulder as the Adrenalin wears off
"I need a short rest"
She looks around wondering why they have not drawn a crowd
Between prestidigitizing the blood, turn over and mussing up earth to further distort any trails, and trying to suss out the bitterness behind the Drow's earlier look, it takes a while for the tiefling to even appear to track the conversation. "Is there even a local authority besides him.."He mutters, looking askance and rubbing his chin in thought. The whole having a body nearly chucked at him earlier hardly appeared to phase the tiefling, so split in focus he had become.
"So, the plan is to interrogate him at Barthen's then? That's... well... I'll wish you all luck. But, I think its best I stay out of this time. I'll wait back at the Inn. I should be able to make it there fine on my own. Just... I guess come get me when you're all done."He says, not really looking at anyone as he absently rubs a far more exposed draconic arm nervously. "If Sir Sildar comes in the meantime, I'll inform him of the situation."He finally looks up to Margret, and then to the others. "Though perhaps before any of you actually wake him, you take a breather there as well."Nobody smiles faintly, and if there's no further distractions or requests, he begins making his way back to the Inn.
(To clarify, in case anyone listens in. By local authority, you'd get the sense he means town guards or city watch, not just the head honcho himself who is turning a blind eye. In fact, I don't think it was ever mentioned we saw any in town.)
Beside the coins, you also find 3 maces, 1 light crossbow and 2 daggers on them. Maltake checks on the one that he knocked down behind the bushes and gets a shortsword and a hand crossbow.
When the last wolfhound wakes up, Moss kneels next to him and tries to calm him down ( animal handling 15) and she seams to got a decent understanding with her, as he doesn‘t seam to make any trouble for her at the moment.
Margaret knocks on the door of Bartens Provisions, but no one answers. When you knock a second time, you hear a voice from within: „Sorry, we are closed for lunch at the moment, but if you go north for 3 or 4 minutes, there is the ruin of an old school on your left side. It is quite big and got a nice basement. Great if you need to hide for some while.“
Nobody, as you get closer to the Stonehill Inn, you see Sildar giving first aid to the Redbrand who ran south. Sildar rolled him on his side, but you still notice a nasty burn on the thugs back. When Sildar hears you approach, he looks up at you and sais: „I assume this was you guys. Looks like you already met the local gang of idiots. I was able to stabalise this one, how many more were looking for trouble? Also, give me a hand with this one. We bring him to the Jail. Then you go and fetch Hazel and Ostran from the Inn and Sister Garaele. And meet me back in the townhall. Where is the rest of you? Are they ok?
And stop staring and give me a hand here, grab his right arm and we lift him together, i am still not at hundred percent or i would do it all by myself.“
Zurzg retrieves his shield where he dropped it, and pilfers a mace and two daggers from the corpses as they move them out of sight. Returning to the others, he grabs one of the thugs legs and proceeds to help Margret move their prisoner.
After cleaning himself withPrestidigitationquickly enough and having the loot been handled by the party, Ree'lyn decides it is time for him to get hold of Sildar and Master Stonehill.
"I will try and make some arrangements for our... conversation with him." - the Drow announces as he glanced over each and every one of his newest companions of misfortune. - "Do not get started before I get to you. The location you spoke of, Margret, seems perfect for our purpose. I shall be there shortly."
Leaving as he speaks the last sentence, Ree'lyn heads to the Stonehill inn.
Kai will assist Magaret with carrying the redbrand to follow the rest of the group and look her over for a moment, noticing the tears. "Margaret? Are you alright? You seem upset... Do you need someone to talk to?"
"You have no idea."Nobody says with a defeated sigh in his voice in response to Sildar's first question. The rest he doesn't even appear to fully listen to over rubbing his forehead over the situation. But at the last complaint, he gives the Stonehill Inn one last pitiful look before grudgingly moving to help with the body... By dragging him. Because there was no way he was strong enough to go carrying anything larger than a goblin body around. "To answer your many questions, Sir Sildar, there were 6 in total, including a pair of wolfhounds, I believe their called? As for the others, the rest went to Barthen, including that... Drow fellow. Seems he has a bit more an invested interest in things now for whatever reason. Your influence, perhaps?"
He smiles at Sildar, though its a pained one that fails to fully reach his face. "But the rest are.. fine. Roughed up, but most came out better than I in that one." And indeed, despite most of the wounds have closed and even scabbed over from magic, plenty of bloodied out robes and the torn off sleeve from the wolfhound bespoke of a sorrowing fight. "After some... no, I leave them to tell story. Suffice to say, they either don't particular like drow, or possibly know more about our previous dealings then they right aught to so soon."He comments on while dragging the body along. But as speaking left him even more winded between the pulls, Nobody goes silent.
But before heading off once the Redbrand is imprisoned, an exhausted tiefling turns on the aged human and says, "I do not know how much of it is true. But, we were told about the townmaster's proclivity for turning a blind eye on these bullies. So, is it really wise to make use of this?"
(Though it probably wouldn't matter. I have not regreted picking up the message cantrip more.)

Mal quietly works to take the dead bodies to the stable, making sure before he does this that the horses and other animals are properly tied in case the animals get spooked by the presence of dead bodies. He methodically takes the weapons to bring inside the inn. He also strips any of them who still have their red cloaks on them.
The more things change the more they stay the same -- he says to the bodies as he hides them in the corner underneath some hay.
Once his work is done he washes the blood and dirt from his hands and rejoins the others in the inn.
Kai nods in understanding as she follows after the others with Margaret. "I understand. I dislike taking life as much as you do, but if we had not taken them down, they would have done the same for us. As for the guys, I suppose it takes women to do a mans job eh? I believe they get a little eager sometimes. However, these are pressing manners. I suppose we should catch up."
