Faeressar - Wandering of the Lost

Post  Pimli Prixus on Tue Mar 15, 2016 10:13 am

Pimli stares in wonderment at the white capped towers, the strange stone buildings, all the odd people, animals, smells. He's never see a place like this before, and it's marvelous!

He notices a few of his companions breaking off to go shopping, "Wait for me!" he calls out as he walks in the direction they did. Trying to take in everything at once. It was no time at all before he had lost his companions as he was staring at the intricate carvings of one of the buildings, allowing the flow of the crowd to guide him. He unceremoniously pushed down a side street, a rather boring side street with nothing to see. He stops in the street and looks around but his friends are no where to be seen, that's when it hits him. The most wonderful scent of baked good, they smell almost as good as his Gram used to make. Hungry from the days travel he follows his nose.

Omenous Bakery the sign read, above a painting of a steaming pie, so realistic that you could almost see the movement of the steam. He steps inside that small building, the walls are lined with shelves displaying baked goods in all manner of shapes, sizes, and colouring. Behind the main counter is a Smiling Halfling in a aporon. "Mmmm it smells wonderful in here! ummmm what are these?" Pimli says pointing at a cylindrical item with a bluish top. The Halfling walks over to see what the Gnome is pointing at "Ohhh that there is sweet berry cupcake, how many can I interest you in?"

"Ummm well I'm expected at a special dinner later on and I don't want to spoil it, but just one can't hurt could it?" a short time later Pimli walks out of the confectioners shop blue icing on his lips as he enjoys his treat. He once again joins traffic on the main thoroughfare, after finishing off the sweet berry cupcake and licking his lips to make sure he got every last bit of that magnificent icing.

Music drifts over the crowd from street entertainers on every corner, the cheers and laughs of those watching makes Pimli want to stop and see but the throng of people controlling his movement has other plans for the little Gnome, pushing him past each and everyone. Eventually he's brought to a large plaza square, dominated by a statue of a man, hand on a sheathed sword.

The square is strangely devoid of people, quiet unlike the other sections of the city that the Gnome has seen, the only exception is a scattered guard presence leading up to a large wall blocking what appears to be a manor house. Pimli takes a stroll in the direction of the walled house, savoring the freshness of the air and the fact that he isn't being hurried or bumped. Before long he's approached by two of the guards "What business do you have with the Sword and the Sheath? speak quickly Gnome!"

"Business? I have not business, the air here is just so fresh compared to over there." he points over his shoulder to the crowd of people that he just came from And I'm a little interested to see what that house is! It must be important if it's kept behind a wall, and all these guards!" He smiles up at the two guards. The one that did the talking picks Pimli up and walks him back to the crowds of people before putting him down, "Off with you now, we have no time for your kind" and with that he's sucked back into the flow of people drifting through the city.

As he's being lead about by the wave of people, he hears people behind him speaking about silks, patterns, and colouring. Hmm clothing he thinks to himself, looking down at his desert worn garments, still good for a while but it may be worth checking out. When he hears the voices break away from the crowd he shifts to follow eventually ending up in front of the shop.

Weavers working large looms in front, sales women with trays of cloth and silk in a variety of colours and textures walk back and forth showing the wears, on the inside a man with a measuring rope fits a man for what ever it is he wishes, and another dresses a manikin in the latest of fashions. The sign out front prominently displaying The Weave and Pleat. He walks in to take a look around.

"Where are you parents little boy" the man dressing the manikin says to Pimli without looking away from his work. "Little yes, but I haven't been a boy for many years" he says with a laugh. The man looks down with a look of surprise "I'm very sorry kind gnome, I didn't mean to offend." "No offense taken" he says "I just want to see some of the fashions could you point me to where I could find something in my size?"

"I'm sorry but we don't have anything for persons of your Stature. What you're looking for is Short and Stout on the other side of town" the man says ashamed. "Thank you" Pimli says with smile and journeys back into the street. Short and Stout, I'm going to have to remember that

The procession of people leads Pimli under a banner that says Barter and Beg's Junk Shop, he ends up in a large open market place. Stalls everywhere selling just what the banner advertised. Junk. As he proceeded through there is a item that catches his eye, on a stall close to where he walks he sees a toy from his youth, a simple cup and ball game. After some bartering with the woman behind the stall, they come to an appropriate price and he walks away with the game stuffed in his pouch, a large smile on his face, he will have something to entertain himself if they have to go on anymore long walks.

"Do you have what it takes to be one of the few? one of the proud?" Pimli hears a barker shouting over the crowd "Crave adventure? Want to make a decent wage? come to Cabal's Sortie Service and become a Mercenary! Need a extra helping hand out in the wilds? Our mercenaries are trained like no other! Cabal's Sortie Service for all your mercenary needs!" Pimli can't think of what type of person would willing put themselves in harms way for adventure. Don't people realize the adventure in all kinds of mundane things? You'll never see him putting himself in harms way like that. Nope the Mercenary life isn't for Pimli, he'll just continue traveling with his friends where it's safe.

The crowds thin, and the smell hits him. Not the delicious scent of the bakery, but maneuer. He looks around to see pens of livestock all around. The animals looking at him with blank expressions. The sound of cheers in the distance. flies buzzing around. wait cheers? Pimli looks around and heads in the direction he heard the cheers coming from. Eventually coming up on a pig pen surrounded by people.

He squeezes himself between two bodies to see what they're watching. In the makeshift ring he sees two men in unarmed combat, at each side off the pen there is someone walking back and forth taking bets on the fight. He watches and elbow connect with the jaw of one of the fighters as he goes down, a knock out blow. Two people come in and drag the unconscious man out of the area as the bets are paid out.

Without delay another man walks into the area apparently ready to take on the winner. The money handlers begin calling out odds on the up coming fight. Pimli reaches up and taps the man next to him "Excuse me, what is this place?".  The man looks down at him "The Orc and Barrel, keep quiet about it ya? we don want it shut down again." Pimli nods to the man and walks away, the fighting doesn't interest him much but maybe Val and Kellar would enjoy this place.

He follows the flow of people, starting to get hungry, he's been walking for hours and that cupcake was definitely not enough to keep him full for long.  He starts looking out from the crowd towards the shops he can see for someplace to get something to eat. He passes my a place called The Folded Coin on the inside he can see a fat man in silks talking with an attendant, servants loading coin into a chest while someone on the other side of the counter counts a stacks of Platinum.

He continues on, seeing an establishment called The Kobold's Den, children running around it, a man in a pieced together Kobold costume welcomes guests out front. He's seen this type of place before, back home it was called The Mouses Cheese. Decent food and drink, with fun and games for the kids.  Pimli breaks away from the crowd and heads towards the entrance. He's starving.

Full on mutton, and a half pint of ale he leaves the Kobold, again trying to find his way around the city. I'm surprised I haven't run into anyone else yet he thinks to himself as he walks on.

Traffic leads him to a kind of open market fruit stands line the street. He remembers back to the walk through the desert, fruit could be good if put in that position again. But it needs to be something that will keep in this heat. He notices a booth with baskets of dried fruit out front, the signage displaying Sand & Sundries. He breaks off towards the both and purchases a small bag of dried berries.

He eats a few of the berries before stuffing them into his pouch, he then looks around to find a spot into the crowd when something catches his eye.  A few booths over there is no fruit or food at all just bags. Pimli walks over to the booth and reads the signage, I'm Sand sand sand The Sand Emporium.

Each of the bags is labeled. Sand of fire snuffing, Instant mud (just add water), Modeling Sand, Sands from exotic lands, Sand of blinding. He laughs it off loudly, it's obviously a joke no one could really fall for that? I mean that's all stuff that sand all ready does! But that sand of blinding, I'm going to have to remember to tell Cus about it he may be able to get some use out of that.

As he walks on through the thinning crowds he spots what he's looking for up ahead. A sign above the door of a building in the shape of a crystal ball on top of a open book reads Flash in the Sand Magic Shop. He weaves through what is left of the crowds, and enters the building. The scent of old parchment, and inks, as well as burning incense hits him as he walks in. behind the counter is a tall robed elf reading a dusty tome.

Pimli walks up to the counter and says "I'm I glad I finally found this place, I was wondering if you could help me? I seem to have lost my staff. You wouldn't happen to have any Arcane implements would you?". The elf points towards a rack of staffs against one of the walls, with out looking up from his book.  Pimli walks over to see what manner of staffs are offered. It takes some shuffling around but he manages to find one that fits his height. Well it's a walking stick in truth, but on the Gnome it looks like a grand staff.

He brings it to the counter and purchases it, as well as ink, replacement quills, parchment, and expended material components to refill his component pounch. He carefully places the inks in his pouch being sure to check the stoppers on each before placing them, then rolls up the parchment and places it in as well as the quills. And heads out into back out into the streets. It's getting late he needs to find the castle soon or he'll be late for dinner.

From the door or the magic shop he looks up at the sky line seeing the domed towers of the castle dominating the sky line. How didn't I see that before? he thinks to himself as he works his way down a side street in the direction of the castle. Wandering the alleyways and side streets he see's many of the sights he's seen throughout the day.

"You look like a man of fine tastes. Could I interest you in a Camel? This beauty right here is only 2 years old and not a scratch on her. Luka Leopold has the best Camels in all of Faeressar" Pimli looks up at the man speaking, the dark skinned man wearing a multitude of colours that not even a Bard would be caught dead in, he's standing by an animal corral full of those strange humped horses the riders in the desert used. "Luka is it? I'm sure your Camels as you call them are unmatched" he smiles at the man, "But I have no time to talk now. I'm late! I'll be sure to remember you for my Camel needs" and he rushes off.

At long last he reaches the castle, after letting the guards know that he is a guest of the Lord Justice, and having one of the out riders vouche for him, he is allowed in to wash up before dinner.
