To the merchant's surprise and delight, Targul happily makes off with an entire barrel of mixed meat brined in a solution of ground spinach and peppers. It takes some looking, but the rest of the group manages to find what they needed and wanted as well. With time waning, they make their way back to the eastern gate.
The river Chionthar flows fairly high and fast today, glutted from the waning rainy season out east. The bridge spanning it, known as the Wyrm's Crossing, sits outside of the city proper. It is a heavy stone structure with multiple supports rising from the waters below. A single wooden drawbridge in the middle allows for the passage of masted rivercraft.
Assembling by the near end of the bridge is a caravan. Six wagons are in the midst of the loading of supplies and people who lack their own mounts. Each are drawn by a four horse team, while they won't be breaking any speed records, they look up to covering long distances in a day's time.
Sir Ontharr Frume is overseeing the relative chaos while sitting astride a horse with a stunningly blue coat. The color doesn't mean much on its own, but the steed's demeanor and apparent intelligence identify him as a spirit from the celestial realms rather than a natural creature.
A headcount shows 33 people are setting out on this mission, of whom 6 (Including Geoffroy's 2 retainers), are noncombatants.
A Harper agent approaches the paladin, those close enough to overhear (None of whom are not going) catch the following, "Everyone who is coming is here. We've detained one, Brom Winnel, who thought to try and skip town with the advance money, he won't be talking about his experiences for a while. Meanwhile, we 'accidentally' let slip that you're on a mission to Amn. Given that you're headed in the right direction for much of the route, that should fool most. Farewell, and may Tymora's luck be with your task." With that, the man turns and walks back through the city gate.
[Targul's barrel'o'meatychunks cost him five gold, but contains enough to feed a man for several months. He'll probably finish it off in less than one. Last call for freely swapped inventory changes. Make any remaining edits now.]
