Hiring a Detail in Ghosttown

Recommended Posts

Ashlin shiver as his small group finishes the Spud Run the patrol. The route takes them from The Slap and Tickle to Ghost town. Maybe its the cold that causes the man's hair to stand on end, maybe its the description Michael has given him of the ghosts that wander the woods late at night. Ashlin shakes his head. "Nashkarn do you want a silver in your pocket?" he asks his companion

Nash twists his face from mild frustration at the dumb question, "You should know my motto by know Ash, I do bad things to bad people and get paid for it so if one of those things are in the details I'm all about it."

Ashlin quirks an eyebrow. He pulls a silver from his pouch. With his right hand he flips it into the air and catches it. "I have some merchants and refugees from who i made connections with from Pinedale. I have recieved word that they are making their way up from the caravan. They will be here in a week, maybe two. I need a competent guard to escort them through town." On the third toss AShlin bobbles the coin. It nearly escapes his grasp. As it begins to escape in the cover of darkness Ashlin left hand snags it out of the air. He smiles a cooked smile, holding the coin where Nashkarn can see it. "fThere maybe bad people, you in ?"

Nashkarn gives a half smile attempting to control his excitement over the simple yet profitable task, "Well, you see... absolutely! As long as they aren't annoying and know how to listen I am most definitely willing and able. Plus I need something to do, I get bored and when I get bored I get mischievous and it just all goes down hill from there."

"They will meet you here in Ghost Town late in the evening. If you would kindly take the lower path down by the lake as to avoid detection i would appreciate it. I rather not have their lives put into unnecessary danger." Ashlin bows his head slightly and flips the coin up at Nashkarn.

"Unnecessary danger is a rather opinionated statement." As he says this he gives a slight chuckle at Ash. "Well, I'll be here at POTATO TOWN!... when they arrive. You really have to stop saying Ghost Town, just because Micheal says it doesn't mean we have to. Besides, I like to say Potato Town just to spite him."

The merchant looks over his shoulder as if expecting a wraith to materialize from thin air. He shakes his head, shudders slightly and looks back to Nashkarn. "I have a healthy respect for the dead comrade. " Ashlin looks over his shoulder again. "After the hordes of them. i have a healthy fear of them too. Keeps me alive."

"Yet again, just because Micheal is all like 'I see dead people' doesn't mean we have to be freaked out all the time. Besides, remember that one time with the banshee and we totally took on all those skeletons by ourselves. OR! The time with the weird necromancer guy that had the tea and the circus and how he wanted to be best friends... Good times."

"The only good times are when the dead people have had my sword in them, are dispatched, and sent on to the well." Ashlin flashes a wide grin. "Shall we?" he gestures towards the lower path with his shield.

"Like I said... opinionated. Now lets go find lord stick in his ass, or bad things, one of the two or both."

"Being my half brother I feel I should be offended," Ashlin begins to walk. "But your words have some merit to them."

"I know right! He gets all mad and cute like he gets something out of screaming and yelling at people all the time."

Ashlin raises his sword and shield over his head and waves them frantically in the air. He mimics a shrill mocking battle cry "WHHHHAAAGGGGG!!!!!"

Nashkarn starts crying and has to stop to catch his breath, as they continue on the path you can see the silhouettes of the two adventurers making absurd gestures and shouting "WHAAAAAAAAG" over and over in between laughs.
