Meeting by the Inn . The future GnomIIes meet under the shadow of an inn... . "Well, maybe if someone had actually bothered to make sure she knew we were meeting at this time, she'd be here by now," Rego commented angrily
It was a cloudy evening in Rainos. Elisa had invited three men - Rego, Destrian, and Kindle - to a meeting by a small inn in a forest by Hadran, yet she was nowhere to be seen.
"Look, none of us even knew Elisa before Halbert's friend started going on about how good of a fighter she is. I had assumed that she would be here, considering that she was the one who planned the meeting." Destrian, too was frustrated - the men had barely been together for five minutes and they were already in a heated argument.
"I don't see why you expected her to be reliable. You can't trust Rainosians. It's the basic rule of life." Kindle, the Mythronian, was spouting Mythronian propaganda as usual - senselessly, too, as he was talking to a Rainosian.
Destrian, sensing a violent argument about to ensue, stopped the two before they could go to blows. "Look, she probably got held up somewhere. Let's give her a few minutes; it's not like we've been waiting very long. Maybe she's trying to figure out strategies - which is what we should be doing."
Rego nodded. "Last year, I came so close to winning. I lost at the joust. I've gotten a lot of practice fighting since then, though - I'm sure I can do better this year."
Kindle took the opportunity to go on a long-winded tangent about how to best kill an enemy. His use of the word "Rainosian" to mean "enemy" irritated Rego, but Rego tried to ignore it; they needed to be calm and work together if they wanted to have success as a team.
As Kindle began to explain how he beheaded a Black Lotus member in some battle, the door of the nearby inn opened and Elisa walked out.
"Oh good, you've stopped arguing. I was going to come out on time, but I didn't want to interrupt your argument - I'm sure that it was very important. Anyway, it's time for us to get something done - let's go to the blacksmith's and get some new weapons so that we can practice.
"Also, I just found out - we need five people on our team, not just four. We'll need to find someone soon."
The four walked away.

Looks like someone was watching...
Full build! Pretty cool right?
Inn detail (this is the only part I'm not satisfied with)
The path through the rocks is one of my favorite parts. Combined with the big panel on the left, it's one of my favorite parts. :)
Love the panel rockwork!
Pretty happy with this! The landscape, especially the rocks, is really well done IMO! Not too happy with the front of the inn though, not sure what's off about it though (probably just because that's the blandest part of the build). Anyway, hope you like it! Wish me luck against Kai and Stephen (good luck guys!)! :)
