"Ah, that makes sense," Levy says to Alice before turning to their third table-guest. "You're right, Bounty Hunting and Monster Hunting are two very different things, which is why we never force anybody to accept a job like that if they don't want to. Still, if you do choose to take one of those missions, we won't stop you, but you'd best be careful. We're expected to take the lawbreaker in alive so they can face the jail-time they deserve as a formerly law-abiding citizen, though technically we're allowed to kill as a last resort. That said, the guards usually don't like that no matter how justified we might have been. Probably 'cause they're jealous we were able to do a job they couldn't." She shrugged, finishing off the last morsels of her cake. "Whatever the reason, we're still technically citizens and they still have power over us, so try and bring in the 'bad guys' alive if you want to be sure to avoid becoming a fugitive. Other than that, treat it like a monster hunt against a smarter monster and you'll do just fine. Probably."

Thorix holds his hand out and shakes the other man's hand. "Likewise."

"Whoo," 'Sparks' says. shaking his own hand a few times once it has been let go. "Mighty fine handshake, there. So you say you're doin' a mission, eh? Well, don' let me hold you up, but tell you what," he smiles, missing tooth phantom-gleaming, "You ever need any weapons or upgrades to that armor of yours, seekin' me out again's the best thing to do.

'

Stealth check was a success. Don't worry, that'll be the last one for a long time. Razz




Levy chuckles. "Well, then. Anything else you two want to ask, or you want me to grab you some more sweet meats before ol' Barrel-Gut gets here?"

"I shall keep that in mind. Thank you. Now, I must be off in search of my companions, as it seems I have outpaced them more than I thought, Thorix says as he begins to walk back the way he came in search of his comrades.

"I've had my fill, thank you." Leopold declines politely, then after a moment's hesitation, reaches for another. "Maybe one or two more. The only other question I think I might have, is can we expect to see you often? You are certainly the most amiable personality I've met while here, and combined with the promise of good food and knowledge of the guild, I think we might benefit greatly from speaking with you more often. I certainly would." He takes a bite of another cake, before continuing. "Assist us in getting entirely acquainted with the place, meeting new comrades, dinner, etc."

"Likely it'll depend," Levy shrugs, watching the cakes be downed. "I have to take jobs same as you, and who knows how long any particular task will take?" She smiles. "But I'd be glad to chat whenever you guys are around, provided you aren't creepy or anything."

"Well I'm not creepy. I'm wealthy, boisterous and eccentric, if you we're to talk to my business partners, but not creepy. The girl here," he motions to Alice, "she's probably creepy." He flashes her a grin. "So is our permanently helmeted comrade. And the rest of our team. But I'm perfectly normal, don't you worry. Speaking of them, we do have a schedule to keep, young miss. Shall we?"

Might as well. Alice gives him a half smile. She gets up and starts to turn towards the exit, then checks herself. Oh, and thanks. For the advice and stuff."

"Alright, see you two round," Levy says as her two guests turn to go. As they do so, Thorix enters the room, looking around momentarily. "Oh. Hey, big guy. What're you up to?"

"Psst," Leopold whispers entirely indiscreetly, "That's that guy I was talking about." He compliments this by making a face and some nonsensical gestures, half hidden from Thorix. "Ahem, ah right, yes, on our way. Just got a bit sidetracked."

The helmet on Throix's head looks down upon Leopold. There is no visible sign of emotion, but a feeling of anger and suspicion is quite clear. "I have the sudden feeling I have been badmouthed behind my back. How unfortunate. Oh well, let's move. We don't have to like each other to work together."

The walk to the train station is uneventful in terms of things that might stop the party and make them look at something neat or do some kind of battle. In terms of things actually going on, however, there is no word other than eventful that might describe them.

Vendors peddle various greeneries and souvenirs (as if Verdant was some sort of popular tourist attraction). Guards walk past on patrol and lovers pass through the early morning sunrise, holding hands. Children play, and somebody sings a song to match the instrument nearby. It's a peaceful day.

The most activity in this town of simple buildings and cobbled roads, however, seems to be at the train station itself. It's not particularly crowded today, but what people are there -mostly conductors - seem to be rushing about in a blitzing hurry, panic on their faces.Though not large, there is in all technicality a crowd of people at the front of the station, warded by a nearby blockade. "Sorry folks," what looks to be a guard says. "Train might be running a little late today. Got some fliers near the tracks, so until they're gone we can't let you bored." The crowd generally groans at this, and the guard puts on his best smile. It isn't very good. "Come on, folks. We guards are doing what we can, so who knows? After all, you've still got fifteen minutes to spare!"

"Fifteen minutes, huh?" Rixa showed up at the train station as suddenly as she'd vanished, as though she'd never been gone. In her pack were her collection of kitchen knives, and in her hand was... a large stick? She hoped it wouldn't be confiscated, that it could pass as a large walking stick, which at this point... it looked worn enough to pose as one. It'd certainly seen use as one since it was too big to put in a sheath or something similar.

"Well, what can we do with fifteen minutes..."

"We can wait here to be sure we do not miss the train. I have no need to find entertainment. We have a task, I wish to ensure it is completed."

Alice decides to just sit down and watch all the people around her, since she probably wouldn't have time to go find a place to check on Sunburst now, and didn't want the rest of them thinking she was always slipping off.
