The Lost Dwarf
In the aftermath of the tidal wave and fight with the sea creatures, the citizenry still need our assistance. Snargash heals. He has to do some convincing with some of his patients, because of his looks. Bodi tries a line on Shayla, the tiefling. They end up establishing a few rules of engagement. Mostly involving Shayla using sharp things. Snargash takes the opportunity to spread the word that we’re from the Gold Goblin and we help our neighbors - a little PR never hurts.
Eventually they return to the casino. The evening goes quite smoothly. They are starting to find a rhythm to their individual contributions. Guy works the tables looking for cheaters. Bodi tends bar. Aragon greets folk at the door to make sure they check their weapons. Snargash provides beautiful music. Shayla stays to the catwalks. Ajax is a floor guard, and Aethel tries to class the palce up.
However, in the morning, there are worrisome tidings. Larur, the floor manager has not shown up for work. Saul is concerned. He is not at his house. Last night Saul sent him off with a loan payment and he hasn’t been seen since. He asks the adventurers to investigate.
They are guided to Larur’s house by a young boy. When they get there, they find the front door hanging off its hinges. As they investigate, they find squatters have already moved in! A drunk, muttering something about snozberries, is found in the trashed ruins of Larur’s abode. There is no sign of Larur or the gold.
Continuing Story Summary
Finding nothing at Larur’s, they set off for the moneylender’s. It is early, and there is no response to a polite knock. After a not-so-polite knock from Shayla, the group becomes aware of a gang of Half-Orcs across the street, watching their every move. Obviously Lymas Smeed has made some arrangement with the local thugs for protection. Hopefully, it won’t come to that.
