Necking the rest of her wine from the glass she begins to follow him out of the tavern, downing different drinks as she goes past. "I probably need an escort home anyway, that, and Father will smell the wine on me if I go back to the house of Varvinden"

Seeing Johann leave, Cecil quickly realised he wasn't going to get an interview on his knighthood that evening. Seeing a strange, green clothed elf working at a nearby table, he collected his paraphernalia, gathering it into his pouch and, wine in hand, walked.over.

He quickly gathered his papers and bottles, putting them away as he saw the walking disaster walking towards him, he looked with a mix of curiosity and impatience as he was interrupted by this strange human

Cecil sat down in the chair opposite the green clad elf.
"Just a moment. Did you say Divah Lunus? I've heard stories about you. Please, allow me to buy you a drink. My editor will fire me if I fail to get an interview."

"Ya, Ya... So what do you already know?"

Divah slipped one hand into his glimmering cloak as the reporter carried on, his hand hidden from view as it snaked around and over a cylinder of metal, tracing fingers over the code stamp at its base, this could go one of two ways, and he'd be damned if he was caught off guard. Outside, his facial expression hadn't changed one bit as he moved or spoke, awaiting the next few words.

"I have heard that you were part of the group of Seekers sent to search for the Toymaker, and that in tge wake of the mission you were granted Sergeant rank in the Library?"
Cecil reached into his bag to rummage around for his notebook. As he struggled to grasp it, his hand accidentally closed around his throwing knife. He slipped it into one of the side pockets and, with a flourish, finally withdrew his notebook, quill and ink.

"Perhaps..."

There was no real way this person could possibly be this clumsy, it was a ruse of some kind, even as he reached into his bag, the figure had managed to snag himself on something, giving away some kind of hidden weapon. Divah wasn't the most sane of types, but in his current state, even this 'man' looked silly.

Divah watched for the 'interviewer's' next move, not openly offering his services to a stranger that had simply walked up to him after his real scoop left out the door, his two Guild heads, one that passes out under the influence and keeps pointing swords at people, the other kept occupied with a loving relationship of the kind that so few seekers seemed to have as they moved. Needless to say, he wasn't in the best of moods.

"Not the most perceptive... or co-ordinated... I'm Divah, as I have said before"

Divah wasn't too happy at this moment, his work and study was being stopped. precious scrolls and deadly poisons alike were being neglected to talk to a stumbling man who was unnaturally clumsy with his equipment. His cloaked hand moved to brush a slightly different bottle this time.

Following this man, a shrouded presence slips in silently through the door, only noticeable because of the sheen from his long golden locks, sits down silently in the corner furthest from all other patrons, and remains there, still, almost as if waiting for something...

"Aye, I'll be out of the McCorkindale at this rate!"

Happily, the barkeep poured a tankard and set it on the counter.

"That's a warrant, lad"

Holding his hand out over the counter, he awaited his payment from the straggly human, hardly one to judge a patron, or anyone with money, for that matter.

Cecil's hand moved, once again, to his pouch, unseen, slow movement under the tabketop.[left]

Every muscle inside Divah was ready to explode into action at this stage, hand back to his original container, he stood up sternly, his green friend raising from its dormant position on the table just seconds ago.

Divah sent a right cross straight towards the face of the human in close proximity, drawing his mace with the other hand as his bird hopped up onto his shoulder. Weeks into being a Sargent and these issues seemed to surface already, his previously engaged hand on the potion had slipped to his punch, it was no use in such close quarters.

Cecil pulled the knife out of the table and returned it to his pouch.

And a mile or so away, a young Amranian knight was chuckling to himself at the trouble the others had probably gotten themselves into by now...

Underwhelmed by the response, Divah lowered his stance to normal before resting against the wall instead, glaring at the figure before him, who was taking up arms at the same time he said that he was conceding. Divah never seemed to understand humans.

"Well that should have answered your question, I am a Sargent of the Guild"

Divah let his arm shrug off the cloak to reveal an armband covering it, symbolising his status. Divah didn't return his weapon to his sling at any point, though.

Sorry guys, hadn't read the entire thread, started on page 3 Razz Retconning now...

An unshaven man wanders into the bar, white trenchcoat flapping in the wind as he has the decency to shut the door behind him, the same wind blowing the scent of black powder into the room. Strolling over to the Barkeep, the man speaks.

"Greetings, Friend. Sorry to trouble you, but my I'm looking for my Captain. Funny hat, black trenchcoat, can't hold his drink, probably broke something if he was here."

The man looks around, as if surveying for said broken object

As Cecil downed the glass of wine so kindly offered by the stranger, he began to feel quesy.
"I believe I may be intoxicated."
And with that, after his previous surge of alcohol felled rage, Cecil staggered out into the street, wandered home, and collapsed gracelessly onto his lounge floor.

Emrys looked up from his book and noticed that most people had left the tavern, he saw the remains of a broken inkpot of the floor, and some fairly obvious damage to the bar, despite the repairs that had been done to it.
He realised that he had barely drunk any of his mead, so he drank a quick bit more, and set it back down. He then turned to the elf at the bar and called out,

"What did I miss?"

"Spies... or idiot reporters, I can't tell anymore"

Divah dropped back onto his seat and began to take out his scrolls again.


The barkeep had been rather quiet, and since the flaring of tensions a while ago, he refused to speak as he served, getting things done as quietly as possible, taking in money or writing down tabs.

A bit miffed by the lack of reply from the Barkeep, the man orders McCorkindale on the Seeker's allowance and moves over to the one wearing green, who he assumed had been here a while longer than he had.

"Sorry to disturb you, Mage, but I'm looking for the good Captain Seamus O'Malley. If you have any information i'd be grateful, he is incredibly difficult to track when out drinking. Funny hat, can't hold his drink, maybe broke something if he was here?"
