"...What do you know, Thedor? Why are you so insistent that Imarial is hiding something?"

Thedor shakes his head, "I don't think Imarial that you are hiding anything, not in the way an elf noble would define hiding. But not tell us something because you judge it unimportant, and that your judgement as an elf and a noble is superior to ours? Yes, I do think that. And the reason I believe that , because I've had elven nobles hide things from me because I did not need to know, which very nearly got me killed once, and it did get them killed. And I will take an ounce of prevention now rather than it stabbing us in the back with Imarial saying 'Oh that reminds me, I never told you...' just as the blade goes in."
Really...why are you reading this?

Imarial begins cursing in Draconic. "Bad words and curses !"

"What I know is that I lost my research, Lord Rakal said he'd look for it. He then found it and said I could accompany him with an armed to the City to stay safe, and to get a bunch of supplies around and meet up with you lot!"

"Why did the bandits take it in the first place? What could they, or someone paying them, see value in it? I know it was of the ancient elf land of the North but anything particular about it, or something someone thought was in it that they might have found value in?"

Sylvan curses this time. "Even more bad words!

How should I know, they didn't stop to share their motivations with me over tea! We were attacked, I made it out alive, but without any of my documents. If Rakal found my research, I doubt the bandits saw any value in it, they likely discarded it... oooh, I hope it's not too damaged!"

"Imarial... Drow and elves were related once, no? Could your work on your ancient elves be of interest to drow today? I mean... I wouldn't presume to say I understand your work better than you of course, and I defer to your judgement, but if there's anything you discovered that could be of interest to the drow please think on it. If you say there's nothing, then so be it. Thedor will just have to live with that."

"*Sigh* I never came across anything directly referencing *drow*, so while it is possible they are after something, I have no evidence it was pertaining to them in the past. Names, references old gods, ancient battles and artifacts, it is all fascinating to me, but I have long since learned not to bother discussing my research with non-academics. At least non-elven academics have some perspective of time and history, the uneducated short lived races are always so impetuous." He glares, particularly at Thedor, but no one is spared.

"Fine. Then let's move on then shall we? Thedor, I think you have your answer. Now, how far along the road did you get? We need to decide whether to continue looking for our man on the main road or return to the Inn and check the forest trail."

Ooc: Thedor was moving towards the keep when he found the tracks leading him to the forest trail...

((I kind of figured OOC that he hadn't got all the way there, but Elara wouldn't know IC. She'd also REALLY like to change the subject because having the pair of them argue forever is pointless))

Thedor sighs, "Ah well too old to learn better...I would say that I got very near the Keep. So I suggest that we travel to the Keep and inquire there as to the Lord's journey and inform them of the drow highwaymen."

"Leave it alone Thedor, there may be nothing here to learn!

Anyway, I agree. If we are close to the Keep, we should at least see what we can learn there before returning towards the Inn by the forest trail. I am not certain that we should be too specific about these two though. If the Lord's house has indeed been compromised somehow, we want to ensure that we are not giving information needlessly to our rivals. Tell them we met bandits... but let us also assume there was a reason he didn't recruit his own men to watch him on this journey."

Hmm, okay...

It seems there is a bit of a power struggle within the group. And it think that's good, as it would be natural in a new adventure group, trying to see who holds the lederrolle best.
So...
Let's do this.
Thinks has the leader roll right now.
I'd like you to make an persuade roll with advantage and pm me the result.
Anyone who would like to "take over" the party may try and make an intimidation OR persuade roll (no advantage npr disadvantages) and pm it to me within the next 12 hours.
Ill then pm you and thinks back the result and you should rollplay it here in the thread.

BUT, loosing the roll by more than 10 means that your character must accept the other's leadership, at least until you get a level. (accept and follow, but not necessarily agree)

Sounds fair? Awesome....

Can do... But I think we've agreed on our next actions no?

I'd personally prefer to just to rp this stuff than let my character's behaviour be forced by dice rolls is all.

That's okay with me... It was meant as, if you have trouble finding who should lead off game..
I like to remove such obstacles before they arise, if I see them in the horizon.. That said, feel free to do it by rp. If that can be done it is far better...

Thedor's problem is mainly not trusting the elf not trusting him to provide information.
He's not got a problem with Eldera's trying to move forward, but he's really concerned about unknown tigers in the grass...

Imarial's flustered, anxious, and not in a sharing mood. What was supposed to be a reunion with his research and an easy trip to the City under the protection of hired mercenaries has turned into having to work with said mercenaries to find his documents... oh, and the missing Lord too... I guess.

Okay guys..

I just calculated Experience points.
And when totaled with what you guys got last time. it ends up as follows:
Bob = 225. (no so many fights)
Corval, Thedor, Imarial = 275
Elara = 300 (survived a trap alone)

That means Elara is up a level.
But, The level will not be added before next short rest (and nope, you are not in a situation for that...)
Just so you guys are aware.

On another note, it is late afternoon currently in game.

"Heal the SICK?! I do not wish to sound like Bob, but in what reality would a bunch of drow sycophants who capture and torture nobles be in the business of healing the sick? Use your brain, girl, being half human should not have addled you that much!"

((Spider likes the plot hook, Imarial hates everything that went down and is seething with anger.))
