After the brief discussion with Noggin the party sets out to the north end of the city to find this Lt. Clotter of the Red Gaurd. The journey takes the group past the massive white walls of Heart, the closed community of the pure blooded humans who inhabit Delta City, only people with invites from powerful men and women will get into Heart. As the party approaches the North gate a massive stone building comes into view, the North End gaurd station. When the group gets to the enterance to the station a sentry stops you. “What, can the Red Gaurd do for you today travelers?”, he says in a brisk military tone.
You inquire about the lieutenant and that you wish to ask about the task of tracking down the missing girls.
He scans the party, as if trying to assess your worth, “alright, follow me I’ll take you to the lieutenant, she’ll probably want to talk to you,”. He opens the heavy wooden door with ease, and beckons you to follow him. He leads you up a flight of stairs and down a short hallway to a large office, military paraphernalia is scattered around leaving almost no standing room. A square jawed woman, tough looking but still feminine, looks up from the mass of paper that sits atop the large desk.
“Sergant, who have you brought me today?”, sharply she continues “more rebels for me to interagate, or are they con men fleecing our citizens?”. The emphasis on rebels is clearly understood, there is spite behind that word.
“No ma’am,”, the sergant responds quickly, “these people inquired about the Grahamston job,”.
“Very well, sergant you may go back to your post,”. She waits for the sergant to leave before resuming, “so, you’re here about the job. It’s simple really up in Grahamston two girls, twins actually, have gone missing,”. Before anyone can get a word in edgewise she continues, “Grahamston is a town about a hundred miles North of here, they keep to themselves mostly,”. She stands up from behind the desk and walks over to huge map hanging from the wall, ” there’s plenty of things that could have dragged them off, if they were out in the forest, but they weren’t, they were in town, in their fenced garden actually,”.
Sighing, “and that’s about all I know about it,”. In a more assertive, buisness-like tone she says “the pay is a resonable sum of two hundred gold and a bonus is dependent on how quickly you resolve the situation, anything found in the course of your investigation you have the right to claim,”. “The Gaurd will arrange for your lodging in Grahamston, but you will have to take care of all other expenses,”.
Sitting back in her chair she adds, ” I know what you’re thinking, why isn’t the gaurd taking care of this themselves?”. Leaning forward and lowering her voice to a whisper, “we have been having trouble with rebels, the Council wants us to maintain a constant precence on the streets to curb a full fledged revolt,”. She adjusts her posture to command a more assertive voice, “any questions?”.
