[Wed Jan 20 19:44:52 2010] : (21) DM: You've returned to the Barrel to decipher the messages and consider your next move.
[Wed Jan 20 19:46:18 2010] : (24) Zotin: "Does anyone know what these messages say or shall I try a spell?"
[Wed Jan 20 19:46:22 2010] : (26) Helena: Helena takes some paper, scriibbles down an alpahbet with spaces between the letters
[Wed Jan 20 19:47:07 2010] : (26) Helena: Helena then fills the spaces with an alphabet again but now starting with the letter o
[Wed Jan 20 19:47:25 2010] : (26) Helena: "Aha!"
[Wed Jan 20 19:47:54 2010] : (26) Helena: Helena takes the messages, copies them and jots other letters beneath them
[Wed Jan 20 19:48:00 2010] : (26) Helena: "I've got it"
[Wed Jan 20 19:48:10 2010] : (24) Zotin: "Nice work"

[Wed Jan 20 19:48:35 2010] : (26) Helena: "oldpi gisde adher eis yo urpay menta sprom isedm j"
[Wed Jan 20 19:48:59 2010] : (26) Helena: "That scrap of paper was the key!"
[Wed Jan 20 19:49:31 2010] : (23) Elora: "right"
[Wed Jan 20 19:49:33 2010] : (23) Elora: "is it jsut me or is what you just said totally ununderstandable?"
[Wed Jan 20 19:49:57 2010] : (27) Helena (enter): 19:49
[Wed Jan 20 19:50:13 2010] : (27) Helena: ooc Have we heard of someone called filipovich?
[Wed Jan 20 19:50:57 2010] : (24) Zotin: ooc that is still really tough to read
[Wed Jan 20 19:51:22 2010] : (27) Helena: ooc Yep, the original message had the letters grouped, 5 at a time
[Wed Jan 20 19:51:26 2010] : (24) Zotin: ooc amazing how much difference the spacing change makes
[Wed Jan 20 19:51:58 2010] : (21) DM: Filipovich was the Merchants' Guild member who was poisoned and murdered.
[Wed Jan 20 19:52:25 2010] : (27) Helena: "slaughter filipovich the boar in his sty tomorrow payment when task is complete mj"
[Wed Jan 20 19:52:44 2010] : (24) Zotin: "So who is MJ?"
[Wed Jan 20 19:52:56 2010] : (27) Helena: "old pi g is de ad her e is yo ur pay ment a s promised mj"
[Wed Jan 20 19:53:03 2010] : (27) Helena: oops
[Wed Jan 20 19:53:10 2010] : (21) DM: You're not familiar with anyone with those initials.
[Wed Jan 20 19:53:20 2010] : (27) Helena: "old pig is dead here is your payment as promised mj"
[Wed Jan 20 19:53:27 2010] : (25) Barnabas: ooc Michael Jackson ordered his death?

[Wed Jan 20 19:53:53 2010] : (27) Helena: beyond, even
[Wed Jan 20 19:54:38 2010] : (25) Barnabas: "Maybe the initials weren't changed?"
[Wed Jan 20 19:54:52 2010] : (25) Barnabas: "What were they before scrambling them?"
[Wed Jan 20 19:54:57 2010] : (25) Barnabas: "YV?"
[Wed Jan 20 19:55:11 2010] : (27) Helena: "Who can tell? They were YV yeah"
[Wed Jan 20 19:55:34 2010] : (21) DM: You don't know anyone with those initials either.
[Wed Jan 20 19:55:36 2010] : (27) Helena: "Would be strange though to code the message but not the initials"
[Wed Jan 20 19:55:59 2010] : (23) Elora: "ok, the words make sense...individually"
[Wed Jan 20 19:56:05 2010] : (25) Barnabas: "Maybe. It's all a bit strange to me"
[Wed Jan 20 19:56:06 2010] : (23) Elora: "but together, I'm not sure"
[Wed Jan 20 19:56:13 2010] : (24) Zotin: "I agree, that would be too dangerous"
[Wed Jan 20 19:56:23 2010] : (27) Helena: "Not sure about what?"
[Wed Jan 20 19:56:37 2010] : (25) Barnabas: "I'm used to plain speaking and plain actions. My friends know me, and I deal with others directly"
[Wed Jan 20 19:57:09 2010] : (24) Zotin: "Maybe we should ask around. See if anyone recognises the initials"
[Wed Jan 20 19:57:59 2010] : (27) Helena: "Better be careful, mj seems to be a dangerous person, ordering people killed just like that"
[Wed Jan 20 19:59:10 2010] : (24) Zotin: "I wonder if we could find that sailor we met when we arrived. Seemed helpful enough"
[Wed Jan 20 19:59:44 2010] : (27) Helena: "Buy him a drink, let him talk and listen carefully"
[Wed Jan 20 20:00:31 2010] : (24) Zotin: "Got to find him first. Did we even ask his name?"
[Wed Jan 20 20:01:14 2010] : (27) Helena: ooc If we did I forgot what it was
[Wed Jan 20 20:01:25 2010] : (21) DM: ooc she was called Daryna.
[Wed Jan 20 20:02:31 2010] : (21) DM: Going to find her?
[Wed Jan 20 20:02:52 2010] : (27) Helena: Yep
[Wed Jan 20 20:02:56 2010] : (24) Zotin: ooc any other ideas?
[Wed Jan 20 20:03:08 2010] : (21) DM: ooc I have ideas :P
[Wed Jan 20 20:03:25 2010] : (27) Helena: ooc You'd better, we all depend om you
[Wed Jan 20 20:04:20 2010] : (23) Elora: "Apart from sitting, resting, drinking and listening intently, I am not sure we can do much more"
[Wed Jan 20 20:04:29 2010] : (21) DM: After some time looking around the docks you find Daryna working on some repairs to one of the ships.
[Wed Jan 20 20:04:58 2010] : (21) Daryna: "Hello, there."
[Wed Jan 20 20:05:29 2010] : (24) Zotin: "Hi, how are you?"
[Wed Jan 20 20:06:09 2010] : (21) Daryna: "Eager to set sail again! I hope the stupid feud doesn't last much longer."
[Wed Jan 20 20:06:58 2010] : (27) Helena: "Would you care for a drink? We'd like to talk to you, since you seem to know a lot about what's going on here"
[Wed Jan 20 20:07:22 2010] : (21) Daryna: "A drink? Aye, that'd be good."
[Wed Jan 20 20:07:51 2010] : (27) Helena: "What's the best place to drink around here?"
[Wed Jan 20 20:07:51 2010] : (24) Zotin: "It may even help end the feud sooner rather than later"
[Wed Jan 20 20:08:37 2010] : (21) Daryna: ooc I've forgot the names of all the taverns.
[Wed Jan 20 20:08:55 2010] : (24) Zotin: ooc so have we :)
[Wed Jan 20 20:09:11 2010] : (27) Helena: ooc "The slaughterd pig"?
[Wed Jan 20 20:09:47 2010] : (21) Daryna: "The pipe and grog will do for a quick drink. It's not far." She points to where the sign is hanging.
[Wed Jan 20 20:10:50 2010] : (21) Daryna: The Pipe and Grog is the roughest tavern in the town. It's where the dockers and sailors like to drink.
[Wed Jan 20 20:11:14 2010] : (27) Helena: "Is the beer any good there?"
[Wed Jan 20 20:11:34 2010] : (21) Daryna: "It does the job."
[Wed Jan 20 20:12:14 2010] : (27) Helena: "Good enough"
[Wed Jan 20 20:12:58 2010] : (21) Daryna: A few minutes later and you're in the tavern. The sailors nod friendly greatings to Daryna as she enters. It's seems she's well known.
[Wed Jan 20 20:12:59 2010] : (25) Barnabas: Barnabas shrugs
[Wed Jan 20 20:13:19 2010] : (24) Zotin: Zotin gets a round in
[Wed Jan 20 20:13:19 2010] : (23) Elora: ooc weapong expertise is not bad (PHB2)
[Wed Jan 20 20:13:20 2010] : (27) Helena: Helena smiles at the patrons
[Wed Jan 20 20:13:34 2010] : (21) Daryna: "What did you want to know?" She asked when you're seated in a corner with your beers.
[Wed Jan 20 20:14:38 2010] : (27) Helena: "Anything you can tell us about the feud and which people profit from it"
[Wed Jan 20 20:15:33 2010] : (21) Daryna: "I don't really understand the poitics behind it all. There must be people who think they can gain but I don't see how if goods are moving."
[Wed Jan 20 20:16:40 2010] : (21) Daryna: "Perhaps some noble want to curb the guild's power? Or maybe one of the merchants has some plan to profit later when trade is started again? I don't really know though."
[Wed Jan 20 20:17:14 2010] : (24) Zotin: "Do you know any of the names of people involved?"
[Wed Jan 20 20:18:26 2010] : (21) Daryna: "Not many, the ship's captain is the one who deals with the merchants and all the important folk."
[Wed Jan 20 20:19:29 2010] : (24) Zotin: Zotin looks at the others as if to ask 'should talk to this captain'
[Wed Jan 20 20:19:49 2010] : (27) Helena: Helena nods

[Wed Jan 20 20:19:50 2010] : (26) Helena (exit): 20:19
[Wed Jan 20 20:21:08 2010] : (24) Zotin: "Do you think we could meet your captain?"
[Wed Jan 20 20:21:16 2010] : (27) Helena: "It seems somebody is stirring up trouble and forcing a feud on this town. There must be profit in it"
[Wed Jan 20 20:21:59 2010] : (21) Daryna: "You can find him in the White Rose Inn. Ask for Captain Ravich."
[Wed Jan 20 20:22:11 2010] : (25) Barnabas: "Perhaps an agent for another port city that will profit by this one being closed"
[Wed Jan 20 20:22:21 2010] : (25) Barnabas: "An ambassador perhaps?"
[Wed Jan 20 20:22:29 2010] : (27) Helena: "Thank you, Daryna"
[Wed Jan 20 20:22:51 2010] : (24) Zotin: Zotin gets Daryna another drink
[Wed Jan 20 20:22:54 2010] : (21) Daryna: "Glad to help."
[Wed Jan 20 20:24:37 2010] : (24) Zotin: ooc brb, need a cup of tea to warm me up

[Wed Jan 20 20:26:20 2010] : (21) DM: ooc It's around lunchtime about 1pm.
[Wed Jan 20 20:27:20 2010] : (25) Barnabas: "Shall we try to find this captain straight away?
[Wed Jan 20 20:27:38 2010] : (27) Helena: "Sure"
[Wed Jan 20 20:28:17 2010] : (23) Elora: "SOunds good, we can invite him to lunch"
[Wed Jan 20 20:29:10 2010] : (27) Helena: "Is it that time already?"
[Wed Jan 20 20:30:40 2010] : (21) DM: Captain Ravich is pleased to accept your invitation. He seems keen to help anyone investigating the feud.
[Wed Jan 20 20:30:58 2010] : (21) Captain Ravich: "What can I help you with?"
[Wed Jan 20 20:31:28 2010] : (27) Helena: "We've been asked to investigate, by both parties concerned, and we seem to be stuck"
[Wed Jan 20 20:31:46 2010] : (24) Zotin: ooc back
[Wed Jan 20 20:32:39 2010] : (27) Helena: "We have the feeling there might be a third party that's disturbing the hornets nest, to cause a fight and later reap the rewards, whatever they may be"
[Wed Jan 20 20:33:13 2010] : (21) Captain Ravich: "Go on"
[Wed Jan 20 20:33:57 2010] : (27) Helena: "We don't have a lot to go on, but we have been attacked already. They tried to assassinate us in our beds"
[Wed Jan 20 20:34:21 2010] : (27) Helena: Helena yawns discreetly
[Wed Jan 20 20:34:51 2010] : (24) Zotin: ooc that line made me want to yawn!
[Wed Jan 20 20:35:08 2010] : (27) Helena: "We did find some notes, ordering the murder of Filopivich"
[Wed Jan 20 20:35:16 2010] : (23) Elora: oc brb
[Wed Jan 20 20:35:32 2010] : (21) Captain Ravich: "Interesting."
[Wed Jan 20 20:36:13 2010] : (24) Zotin: Zotin nods encouragement at Helena
[Wed Jan 20 20:36:39 2010] : (25) Barnabas: Barnabas eats
[Wed Jan 20 20:37:44 2010] : (27) Helena: "No other names, just the initials MJ"
[Wed Jan 20 20:38:15 2010] : (27) Helena: "So we would very much like to know who MJ might be"
[Wed Jan 20 20:38:21 2010] : (21) Captain Ravich: "Hmmm. MJ" The captain thinks for a while.
[Wed Jan 20 20:39:33 2010] : (27) Helena: Helena starts eating herself, giving Captain Ravich all the time he needs
[Wed Jan 20 20:39:41 2010] : (21) Captain Ravich: "There was that money lender that lost a lot of money last year, the name's is Mak Janko I think."
[Wed Jan 20 20:40:00 2010] : (25) Barnabas: ooc I believe they sell food, no need to eat yourself ;-)
[Wed Jan 20 20:40:12 2010] : (24) Zotin: "What happened"
[Wed Jan 20 20:40:57 2010] : (24) Zotin: "And how much is 'a lot'?"
[Wed Jan 20 20:42:09 2010] : (21) Captain Ravich: "I don't recall the details. as I didn't do business with him."
[Wed Jan 20 20:42:52 2010] : (24) Zotin: "Who did?"
[Wed Jan 20 20:43:38 2010] : (21) Captain Ravich: "I can't think of anyone off hand."
[Wed Jan 20 20:43:46 2010] : (27) Helena: "But of course, you paid attention to hie financial situation, since that woudl be important if you ever wanted to do business with him in the future"
[Wed Jan 20 20:44:03 2010] : (21) Captain Ravich: "He dealt with the nobles more than us traders."
[Wed Jan 20 20:45:11 2010] : (25) Barnabas: "So he'd have reason to frame them maybe"
[Wed Jan 20 20:45:40 2010] : (24) Zotin: "Very interesting. Thank you Captain. We would appreciate it if you could keep this conversation to yourself."
[Wed Jan 20 20:45:51 2010] : (21) Captain Ravich: "I can certainly see him using any means to regain his wealth."
[Wed Jan 20 20:46:26 2010] : (21) Captain Ravich: "He used to have a grand suite of rooms here which he used as offices and where he entertained his clients."
[Wed Jan 20 20:46:44 2010] : (21) Captain Ravich: "He runs his business out of a small office in the guildhall now."
