Page 2 Thread Main RPG Dragons and Dungeons Daishains The Sage says...
"If that is all, please make your decisions." Mr creel unfurls a long parchment on the table, a fairly standard contract for tasks of this sort. The language is straightforward, no fine print or excessive legalese.
There is a fairly stiff fine for talking about the mission prior to the group getting well on their way, as well as for abandoning the group prior to making it to Greenest (After that point it would seem going AWOL only forfeits the remaining pay). There is also a section that allows signees to list someone to receive their pay in the event of death if they wish. Otherwise everything in there is as was just presented to you.
Several people do choose to leave instead. As warned, they're being asked to take on a Geas mark requiring they not to talk about what they've heard for twenty days. Some of them raise a fuss, but it is quickly settled.
After signing, people are handed their signon bonus in the form of ten platinum coins in small pouches. Cahleth finds a small parchment tucked away in his.
Members of the Blaze are advised to settle any affairs and gather additional supplies swiftly. They're told once more that the group will be departing from the Eastern gate in 2 hours.
Said gate is nearby. People can head there directly to wait, or head out to do a last minute shopping trip and handle anything else they wish. I would like a Perception check from the latter group.
