"Knight or Night?" Regina asks, not realizing how completely unhelpful she was being.

"Well in the original lineage it was night as in nighttime but as my family became more associated with the knights of the Shadowvale over time the spelling shifted to add the k in front of it to represent the ancestral duty of my family."

Spoiler:
You succeed, but you'll have to PM Thorix for the details on that one, not me.

I mean, presuming he's making stuff up like I think, the answer will be "you haven't heard of them" but if Thorix has falsified some documents or somesuch ahead of time, I won't stop that.

The guard nods across all of you, his men (he seems the leaderly type) slowly settling down behind him. "Well then, you are all of you well met." He turns to one of his fellows. "You there, help this gentleman with his bounty, and if I hear tell that a single tooth was stolen from him..." he lets that warning hang in the air as his subordinate nod and walks over to Leopold, ready to help carry or gather as needed. "Well, now that I know all your names, I should like to think that the first thing I can do to repay you is make certain you don't have to pay to ride this train. The owner of this station is notably stingy and bullheaded, I assure you..." he smiles once more. "Ah, but at any rate we still need to give the people the good news!"

A tilt of the head. "I assume you'll want to take the proper credit for your actions before the populace?"

Regina shrugs, not caring about fame for something that wasn't an actual hunt, so long as the guild hears about it.

Spoiler:

I will wait for a PM from Lapis then.

"Ah, yes, if you would be so kind," Leopold addresses the guard assigned to assist him. "I would indeed prefer to leave this all behind instead of taking it with me. Take it to the bank, ask Mr. Tossack to take them to my personal vault- that's "Mr DeHavilland''s personal vault", if he asks- as a deposit, and to have them tallied and appraised by the time I return. See to it he rewards you for your extra effort, as well. As for the rest of us, does anyone care to talk to the people, make us a little more known? It makes no difference to me."

Inwardly, Alice cringed, while keeping a more neutral expression on her face. Not good at all. Oh, you don't need to do that. Hunting monsters is its own reward. Besides we should probably get going with that other job.Alice then glanced over to the other members of the group and reluctantly added " Unless anyone else wants to talk to the people.

The guard blinks a few times, looking somewhat overwhelmed, before eventually straightening, serious, and giving a sharp nod before settling in to accomplish what is requested of him.

"Well, if that be your choice," the guards' leader shrugs a little, "Then I will be off to fulfill my word to you, soon after I let the populace know that the threat is over. You all will probably want to go ahead and get in line to buy your tickets - frightening displays or otherwise, this town has been known to be quite resilient. Men."

This said, he turns and walks away, his men following. They overtake him when he stops and turns around. "By the by, my name is Hestith. Ask for me if you're ever in the capital.

Regina looks confused for a moment then asks, "Didn't you just say you were going to try and get us on board for free?"

"Hmm?" Hestith says, turning around. "Oh. Yes. Well. As I said, the trainmaster here is very...very stubborn. And asides that, you will still need a ticket even if you are going for free, yes? Paperwork and somesuch?" He coughs. "When I said 'buy' I simply meant that it was easier to say it that way than 'obtain for free', yes?"

A couple of guards who were a bit slow on the uptake are staring at him at this point.

Tutorial time: sometimes, in this game, people will lie to you. It will not usually be this easy to spot.

If you suspect someone is lying to you, make a Perception check. Here? DC 10. Other times? Higher.

Leopold doesn't really pay attention to the Guard captain, in favor of watching the volunteers carry his trophies out.

"Sir, I believe you have lied. Now, I request you come through on your promise. Doing something for a reward is something I do not condone, but when a reward is offered and not given, that is another matter entirely."

The captain stops, then straightens. "A liar? Myself?" he asks, sounding genuinely incredulous - about time he picked up some acting skills. "I..." he looks at his skeptical guards, then slumps. "Alright, I'm sorry, it's just...I was telling the truth about the station master beign stubborn. I truly believe that going to see him and not doing so will lead to the same result..." he scratches the back of his head, then pulls out a small money pouch and begins hunting through it. "Eleven, twelve, fourteen...here," he hands out a sum of money in his hand. "As recompense, I will pay for your tickets myself."

A smile. "No hard feelings?"

In response to this, Regina falls over with a soft sigh.




A quick application of smelling salts later, and it is revealed Regina used too much magical energies at once and pushed her mind to the liimit. She'll be okay, but no more monster hunting for her today.

The rest of the group boards the train with the money they received from the guard, and settles in just as the train starts moving. As it does, a somewhat larger man opens the door between cars, stepping inside, stretching a bit, and looking around.

This will serve as Fury of the Tempest's cue.

The man looked around the car curiously, noting the interesting group before him. He didn't say much however, nor did he react when a flying feline monster landed on his shoulder. Instead, all he did was take one of the spare seats in the care. Near a window. He wasn't really one to approach people... besides, his friend normally made it so they approached him.

Thorix sits quietly in a secluded seat, silently watching the car and keeping eerily still.

"As one with a scholarly interest in such things, I would attest that I have read of and even seen much more interesting."

Rixa took note of the stranger with the feline monster on his shoulder, and moved over to the seat opposite him. She stared at the monster on his shoulder before speaking - "Interesting little friend you've got there."

"Thank you." The stranger said, smiling at the compliment's to his companion, though when it was said that more interesting monster's had been seen, the stranger's face flicked down into a frown for a few seconds. It soon became neutral as he said. "I'm sure as a scholar you know not to judge something by appearances alone, and Simba here has quite a few unique talents."

"Yes, I am aware that appearances are not everything. I must say though that there are some truly frightening things in this world. I know that quite well."

Alice  jumped back in. "So what kind of talents? " She wondered how this person managed to train the monster. Sunburst wan't the best trained creature.

"Ticket please," says the passing conductor, not really listening into the conversation.

Spoiler:
Pointless post? Mostly, but it lets people know that I'm still paying attention, believe it or not.

Also lets people know that we are headed rapidly towards the date where our friend Bronymous will no longer be available. When he isn't, I'll be treating his as an NPC or else staying behind until things get better.

"About 20 minutes," the conductor responds after a quick glance at the ticket to confirm the destination. He then turns to the next in line. "Maybe a little more. Heckuva lot faster than going by foot, lemme tell ya. Ticket, please."
