Daishain's D&D 5e: Side Stories RPGs PBP Pathfinder / D&D The Awakened says...
Nikolaos needing to fulfill his obligations arranges to have a private meeting with the local priest of Lathander.
"Good day brother Dawnbringer, it is a pleasure to meet you, and thank you for meeting with me today. I am sure you saw our recent arrival, and I am sure you have questions."
"I was sent to recover an object of great value to the church, which is why I have asked for your discretion and for you to meet me privately. The castle and my alliance with your Barron were an unexpected windfall. And speaking of windfalls, I also have had a financial one and would like to take this opportunity to make my tithe."
"Please allow me to show you the fruits of my labor." Nikolaos reaches into his bag of holding, and reverently retrieves the sundial with both hands. He places it on the table as carefully as if it were a newborn child. Raising his hands towards the sky he sings a prayer to Lathander.
The air around the artifact seems to burst into radiance, illuminating gold and rose colored design on the face of the plate. A road traveling into a sunset. The sun polished so finely that it appears to glow itself. Yet the gnomon cast a shadow so sharp and clean that there is no doubt as to its indication.
"This was gifted by Lathander to his awakened, and I am happy to see it returned. I trust that you can help see to the appropriate arrangements?"
"In regards to the castle, my associates and myself are looking for trustworthy individuals to employ in various tasks. If you have any recommendations as to honest workers, I would love your input."
"I also find myself in a situation that I have not been before. I have benefitted greatly in my life from the lessons I learned under the apprenticeships of more experienced men. I am now for the first time in a position where I can return the favor to the younger generation. Do you know of anyone who might benefit from my mentoring?"
