Page 5 Thread Main RPG Dragons and Dungeons Daishains The Sage says...
Cahleth quietly slips away from the group as they head for a major shopping center, a large space with dozens of stalls and open front stores. He ducks into the building with a vantage he saw before, a place of sensual leisure known rather loftily as the Violet Swan.
After some quick negotiation with the mistress, who is largely amused by his request, he finds himself alone on the veranda, with an excellent view of the proceedings below.
It takes a minute or so, but he spots both tails, weaving through the crowd after the rest of the group, who have slowed down to peruse the wares here. Both are wearing nondescript clothing that blends right into the throng, and both are good at this, actively using the crowd to avoid attention.
One of them is perhaps more reckless than the other, or just has different goals. He keeps drawing close to members of the group, finding some excuse to peruse items nearby. It looks like he is attempting to listen in on anything they say.
The other is hanging further back, and seems to be simply watching both the group and the first tail. The first time his counterpart moved particularly close to the group, he started moving in aggressively before apparently thinking better of it.
Still rather alert for their presence, Lia has noticed one of the tails moving in quite close, but his movements do not currently imply an active threat. She has lost sight of the other one in the crowd.
(Sorry if it wasn't exactly what you had in mind, just moving things along, rolled Insight for Cahleth on their motives, result: 12+5=17).
