He wants half an hour, he can bloody well supply some toxins as well as that little thief.

Phrasing it as a demand like that feels like it might be a bit insulting, though. Also, the representative is supposed to be taking us to get darestim specifically. And are we supposed to be following the messenger to meet Talen or will Talen be meeting us later?

A bit insulting, perhaps? On the other hand it's probably not a good idea to let them get the idea that what we want is of no real importance, and we do want those poisons. Or at least our healers do.

Besides, worse is probably heard dickering over the price of a mug of ale around here. And he is going out of his way to insult us, so probably expects us to push back. We obviously have power, after all; and folks who do are rarely unassuming and retiring without very good reason.

We basically stopped just short of spitting in his face by barging in like this. I'm honestly surprised we didn't have to fight our way out of here. I'm willing to allow for him being a little bit grumpy.

Arkady is reading the guy, and if he thinks he'll see it as a threat he'd think twice about saying it; but remember that the other side of our barging in like that is that everyone in the room is alive by our leave, and this guy knows it.

My guess is that he'd play it off by saying something to the effect that only an idiot like us would forget something like that, or otherwise insult us in the process of telling us when and how the toxins will be delivered. He can have the last word so far as Arkady is concerned so long as we get the poisons to send back to the ship.

Ok, a wagon load of hardtack and chipped beef would be nice things to send back as well; but one thing at a time.

We didn't display anything that would allow us to take on an entire room full of hardened killers, though. I mean sure, we could have fought our way out of there quite handily, but they don't know what our capabilities are in that regard. For all he knows, we're just a bunch of spies with really good stealth capabilities.

That will change in about 2-3 weeks, when news of our little "skirmish" at the Count's makes it's way to the city. I expect several people's blood will run cold when they hear that bit of gossip.

I'm guessing that'll be reported as a victory by a random group of Pandions that just happened to be in the area to thwart the impostors. Any damage done to the surrounding lands is the result of a dragon attack, maybe.

Sure, the "Official" report might say that. Scuttlebutt will say something very diffrent, and news like that travels fast.

Most people don't even know that us Terrans exist, yet. Most rumors would probably say that some Styric in the area helped out with powerful magic, or some such.

Yes, but people are visual creatures, a discription of these "Styrics" will be part and parcel of the gossip. The discription of the trucks alone will allow pretty much anyone to put two and two together.

Even without news of the massacre it's worth noting that half a dozen men can do a lot of damage with purely medieval weaponry (or incendiaries) if you don't notice them until they're already swinging.

Did they say where we were supposed to meet Talen? Or give us any information about a meeting at all?

No. Presumably he intended "we can find you whenever we want" to be a subtle message.

Endlessly subtle. But we've already demonstrated that he can't hide from us, so fair's fair.
