Frog, Ring, Vauri and Volette,
The four of you are in the back room of The Nail & Bottle, a tavern in Six Towers. Volette, why did you choose this for the guild's meeting? What kind of deal do you have with Larn, the tavern owner, that makes you trust him? Oh, Volette, I'm not clear on what you were recently arrested for. Did you do it?
By the one door out of this back room (which leads back into the tavern) is Bricks. He's sitting quietly working at whatever in his fingernails is bothering him with a very sharp knife, humming a tune. It's a hymn, isn't it, Vauri? When were you last in church? Do you attend services? Does Bricks?
Frog, what were you in prison for? How long? Why did they lock you up in the Imperial Prison in the Governor's Ward instead of here in Six Towers?
Una is seated at the one large square table that dominates the back room, right beside you, Ring. How do you normally treat her? She's got a small glass of some cider, sipping on it while listening to everyone's chatter. Did you know her before you were imprisoned over a year ago?
Skinner is here, sitting at the table at a position facing the door. She nodded to each of you as you entered. She's got some notes in a ledger that she's been poring over while you settled in. She apologized that the Guild coffers can't afford food and drink for this meeting.
Skinner calls you together, "Come now, all of you. Let us have a seat and discuss matters." Bricks stays by the door. I assume you each have seats. There are plenty, enough for you to spread out if you wish. Bragon isn't here, neither is Cinnamon Socks, but with Brick's presence, that's not a surprise.
"Vauri, Volette, how are the pair of you?" Skinner asks politely. She didn't ask after you, Frog. Why is that?
