This is to be my write up for my character, Faraois (pronouned Fah-reese), in Khyote's Pathfinder campaign. I will split up the writing into a post for each session we play, so length of each post will definitely vary based on what I remember and how I right it up. ;)
Faraois Siuloir looked at the Nameless Inn where the party she was traveling with had decided to stop for the night. The city of Riddleport was still another half day's travel. Why she actually wanted to the go there was beyond her. It was a large human city with a reputation for bandits, pirates and whatever else human's wanted where laws did not prohibit such things. She had wound up this far, might as well go and see it.
She decided to stay inside the inn though she could have slept just as well out in the woods. Well, this proved an inaccurate assumption before the night was through. It would have proven far better sleeping out in the woods.
She woke up to the smell of smoke that was far beyond what the inn's kitchen produced. With a quick check verifying the door did not feel exceedingly hot; she flung it open to find the hall full of smoke. She ducked low as she stepped into the hall to find herself facing three men with all the tools to spread the fire further. She let out a scream that would have waked the dead hoping some of the sturdier members of her traveling crew would be alerted if not awake already.
The fight went pretty fast upstairs though she didn't hit a single one. By the time she got downstairs first with Samantha catching up, the joke was she had merely been the distraction to the help the others who had been upstairs, as well.
She stepped into the short hall that led into the common room where fire had already caught in places quite well. Several more brigands, including the one they had chased down the stairs, could be seen. It appeared that the dwarf, Edrik, and a half-orc, Bulosh, had been outside at the time. Good the bandits were going to pay for those they had already killed and for the burning of the inn. This evil act did not sit well with her.
Seeing that they had them flanked she charged into the fight swinging her staff. By the time it was over she had actually smashed one of the guys head in with a single blow as if it had been a ripe melon. That made her rather giddy, though it didn't help her feel any better about humans and their houses.
The last fellow was pinned outside and interrogated. Not that he knew much. He stammered and babbled quite well out of fear. He could only say something about some boss named, Z, in Riddleport hired them. Odd that they would bother with this inn at least half a day away. Getting nothing more from the man Samantha suggested stuffing him in a big sack and Bulosh carried him.
By mid-morning they were in Riddleport. The city did not smell as bad as she expected. Her gaze took in the huge arch with its ciphers, which could be seen from anywhere in the city let alone a ways out of town. Not much was taken in before someone was trying to hand them flies for some event at a place called the Golden Goblin. Some did not seem to like the idea because it hinted at demons and such. She really wasn't sure what to think having never been in a large human city before, let alone the reputation that had spread about the city.
They spent some time checking out the Golden Goblin and talking to the guards, which only helped to make the event seem all the more interesting. The building and landscaping around the place was upscale compared to many of the other buildings she had seen in the city. She checked the bushes out front to find them quite healthy and well cared for.
Somewhere in this time she realized Samantha and Bulosh had disappeared along with the brigand they had carried into the city. She did not bother to worry about what that meant.
After checking out the Golden Goblin, which would not be open until time for the event, they headed to a nearby tavern for a drink. There they wound up talking to a tiefling named, Lavender Lil. She admitted having no issues being a prostitute when questioned about her profession. She simply wanted an escort to the event so she could get there safely and she would pay the party a hundred gold. It was agreed upon.
About this time Samantha and Bulosh returned without the bagged brigand in tow. Nope, she didn't want to know about that. However, there was not much time to even think about that. Samantha had the audacity to walk up, confront the tiefling about touching her horns, and then doing so without permission. Lavender Lil whipped out a razor and made sure Samantha understood that she would lose a breast if she did that again. Faraois was not going to step into the middle of that.
