Greasy Spoon is very easy to find, as he's behind the desk, laughing his head off. "And they thought I was crazy for buying fire insurance, HAH! I'll have enough money to finally compete with the Mareiot!"

Barabus wandered in with the others, keeping quiet but staying in the left of the group.

Blackhawk shook his head free of loose thoughts, having spaced out for a moment. "Urgh. Right!" he said to none in particular before flapping in and settling down inside.

The interior of the mayor's office is relatively opulent, having fancy carpets that look Saddle Arabian but were probably bought from some two-bit pawn shop, pictures of previous mayors glaring down at the party from both side walls, and a massive wooden desk upon which a well-dressed sky blue female unicorn secretary is snoozing. The walls are a bright yellow, same as the outside, which really doesn't match the rest of the decor. Behind the desk, two doors rest on either side; one has a copper plaque that reads "Mayor's Office: DO NOT ENTER WITHOUT AN APPOINTMENT" and the other has an iron plaque reading "Financial Transactions". A smaller piece of paper sits underneath the iron, but none of you can read it from here without focusing on it.

Figuring there won't be much for him to do here, Brittle settles down in the nearest available chair (or failing that, the nearest available corner), and starts leafing through his reference booklet.

Barabus leaned against the wall by the door, flipping a coin quietly while listening to what was going on. If anyone was to happen to look more carefully, they might notice that not only did the coin come down of the usual sun side and the moon side, but occasionally it landed with a skull showing of top.

Zebulon sat quietly in the corner, ready to (if necessary) turn Cheese around from marching into the mayor's office.

Blackhawk looked around appreciatively, neck craning this way and that as if his more birdlike quarter was an owl, not an eagle. "Phew," he whistled, a somewhat appreciable feat considering his lack of lips. "Pretty swank place they got goiin' on here for such a recently-formed town, huh?"

There are indeed a couple of uncomfortable wooden chairs to sit on.

The unicorn looks fairly high-bred; probably not Canterlot, but perhaps Manehatten. She's wearing small glasses that have slipped over over her nose, as well as a fairly fancy white dress that complements her sky-blue fur. Her forelimbs are folded on the desk to provide a more comfortable place for her head. All in all, no great beauty, but she's pretty... well, pretty.

The paper reads in clearly printed hoofwriting: "This door is magically alarmed and under magical surveillance." The paper is oddly not torn or dirty in any way.

Cheese goes up to the desk, and wraps on the desk, attempting to wake the secretary up.

Kal straightens his vest, swallows his pride (hopefully it'll stifle the dry heaves from being in this wretched place), and heads towards Greasy Spoon.
"Err, hello! I must say, for a building made of wood, it doesn't seem to have taken much damage."
Which is really quite a tragedy.

((Don't get me wrong, Kal's got a tragic backstory; it just doesn't deal with fire. And isn't necessarily very tragic. Enh, we'll cross that bridge should we ever encounter it.))

[The DC would be pretty low given that he's kinda euphoric right now, but if you want to roll Persuasion or Stealth (don't care which) just to see if you get a Crit Fail, I have no objections. Razz

Also, what? I was talking about Spoon having a tragic backstory. Did I totally miss something?]

"Yeah, that is kinda weird, but WHO CARES, I'm getting money out of the insurance company!" Spoon said, almost singsong.

Roll:
Persuasion: crit fail (2+7)
I ain't even mad, that's how far away I saw that coming.
"It's a shame it didn't burn all the way to the ground." Kal goes wide-eyed after that carelessly blunt statement, before shaking it off and trying to salvage the statement.

I really need to work on that not speaking my thoughts.
Smooth Recovery:
Persuasion: 14 (7+7)
the smoothest.
((oh, I had been talking about Kal. my fault. Good to know Spoon's history isn't one of debauchery.))
((Also, I think Cheese and the others are waking the secretary. Even money says Cheese gets her number by the end of the conversation.))
((Also, I'm starting to regret taking the Derp talent. Makes it difficult to do skill challenges.))

"Zzz... wha? Oh, sorry," she mutters, opening her eyes slowly and with effort. Then they widen suddenly as she realizes what happened.

"Omigoshomigosh I am so sorry for falling asleep on the job!" she panics. "It's just that I've had a lot of late nights andIhaven'treallysleptmorethansevenhoursthisweekandI'msosorry, Idon'tnormallynaponthejob, I'msosorry, sorrysorrysorry..."

"Hey, hey, s'cool, don't worry 'bout it," Blackhawk assured the panicking pony. He shrugged, casual as possible before continuing. "Heck, I'd be fallin' asleep all the time if my job weren't all about movin' around from house to house and house to castle and castle to hut and all that jazz, always movin', that's me. Name's Blackhawk!" He nodded, once, beaming. "Ain't nothin' like a good nap, am I right? Aw, what am I sayin', you seem way more responsible than I am, so I'm pretty sure we can let this slide, huh guys?"

Spoiler:
Attempt to Persuade pony that things are okay: 8 + 8 (bonus) + 1(Draconic Ally) = 17. Eh, not too great, but hopefully Blackhawk's natural charm *snerk* will be enough to make up for any difference.

"Apparently, this was one of his late-hour days," Blackhawk sardonically mumbled to the deskkeeper.

"okaysorry" Kal hurries out of the building and starts flying in no particular direction.
...that could have gone better. although now I have a veritable reason for never going back there...why was I even there in the first place?..guh, pretending to be sent by Psychotics is getting to me. Heh, though I suppose that the night guard has been called it on more than one occasion.
((No big, just keep an eye out for it. It's almost becoming a trope with you, though.))
((Also, I'm definitely never taking Derp as a utility talent again.))
((Also, if the night guard is supremely reputable and no one would dare say something against them, lemme know and I'll take that last bit out.))
