Edrid finally saw the sign of The Moose Tracks Inn. He had been looking forward to meeting the head of the Rainosian branch of his Father’s network. Hopefully this man could help him learn the spy business.
As Edrid walked in, he noticed two men talking at a table. He assumed one of them was Jonathan Gideon. Hopefully.
The meeting had been going well. I had told Aleric of my exploits, including my killing of the Iber soldier. Luckily, he had agreed to support the same side. Unfortunately, my other guild member couldn’t come, and Torr’s representative had yet to appear. Suddenly, I saw a green cloaked traveler walk up to my table.
“Is there a Jonathan Gideon at this table?” the man asked, tactlessly, I thought.
“Who’s asking?” I answered, wondering who exactly this was.
“I am from the Nerogue branch of his network,” the man replied.
“Oh,” I responded. This man must be Torr’s representative. “I am Jonathan Gideon. Please sit down.”
“As I was saying,” I told the Neroguian. “Our guild has taken the side with the Dragons in the Rainosian Civil War. The Dragons,” I continued. “Are currently winning on mainland Rainos.” I produced a map to illustrate.
“The Ibers,” I went on, “Have for the most part won the battle on the island.” I said, after I put away the map. “The Dragons are also in negotiation with Mythron.”
“How did you know that?” The Nerogue representative was obviously an amateur. Which reminded me…
“What exactly is your connection to Torr,” I asked the green-cloaked man.
“I regret to tell you, he is dead.”
“Dead? Then who controls his network?”
“I do,” the Neroguian answered.
“You’re his heir, then.” It wasn’t a question, it was a statement.
“Yes, Edrid Torr is my name,” he said.
“Well,” I said. “In that case, good luck. Your father built an excellent network. You have big shoes to fill.”
With that, I convened the guild meeting. We knew our objective. It was time for action.
The build. My best Inn design yet, I think.
Fun fact: tomorrow, I have my wisdom teeth taken out. So I probably won't post again til saturday.
Very well done! (I thought you weren't going to post this one until Saturday!). BTW, I know you don't have Ben's guy's face but do you have the dark brown version of that hair? 'cause that's what Benjamin uses.
I like it
