@Thomaslee If we're talking practical items, a light crossbow would give her something to use while staying at a distance from combat. I might also be thinking about tools that would be useful if she ever becomes separated from the group. That steel mirror Kyr mentioned for instance makes a good signaling device in addition to the expected uses.
From the Main thread:
@Poljen, you can get your shield embossed with a custom design easily enough, but if you want better than the metallurgical equivalent of a child's crayon drawing, it would likely take longer than the hour or so you have. However, with that stated, it would not be out of place to say you had your shield emblem done before today.
@Sarai Good thought, but with that roll I'm going to say she doesn't notice something is amiss.
@Cahleth, untill you guys specify otherwise, I've been assuming the group is staying on the main market roads, with plenty of space and people around. Opportunities for ducking into alleys and emerging elsewhere do exist. The easiest thing would be to simply pop out of sight and wait until the followers pass by, but that may not provide the best vantage. You can also get up to almost any rooftop, but it is shortly after midday, avoiding notice up there would be quite difficult.
You do see something of an ideal vantage point up ahead. A three story brothel with a mostly enclosed veranda on the top floor oversees a large open market space, but you will likely need to lighten your coin purse to get in there without trouble from the owners.
