    Redeye Ruckus [Quest B]

    The crowd inside the tavern, as it would have turned out, was no less in chaos with the eviction of the brawlers. Angus wondered to himself what the bouncer’s rubric was, in deciding who to throw out, and who to tolerate. To their advantage, the shouting and revelry meant no one took notice of the three entering. Given that Angus took them on as circumspect a route as possible, that was what he was hoping for. You never know who will be racing you for a job. He beckoned for the two to follow him through the tables and the ruffians coming and go as if this was an open-air market. He chuckled at the remark of the one known as Vanilla. He would’ve forgotten why they were here, too, were it not for the bounty money promised. “Oh, we’re doing nothing except asking someone about our mark,” he paused a bit, then decided to recap that as well, “Torek Redeye.” What he didn’t mention was the price for that information. Obviously, he wouldn’t pay for it- That would hardly be profitable. Instead, he’d be promising work to the proprietor. It’d require finessing to make it look like he wasn’t roping the two in, of course. “Fredericks! It’s good to see you again!” he shouted suddenly to the man cleaning the bar. The old man, one would notice, wore two eyepatches. Old Fred had a cynical sense of humour, so when he lost his eyes, he decided to dress like a double pirate- or so that was Angus’ theory. “We know each other?” The blind man grunted, brushing strands of his long white hair from his face as he worked, “Dun’ ‘member yer voice.” “It’s Angus! The… Fixer! Yeah, we’re lookin’ for this guy by the name of-” “Oh, Angus, that explains yer obnoxious voice. I’ll talk with these two ladies instead.” “-What? I mean- I’m sure I’ll be more suitable to explain-” he wasn’t sure how Fred determined the gender of the two. He wasn’t going to ask. “Yeah, nuh. You, ma’am,” he pointed at a random direction, “What’s this monkey yammering on about?” It was an inconvenient time to remember that Old Fred was a bit of a bastard.

    @Rin It's your turn, by the way. Maybe I ought to extend the pacing to two weeks.

    I'm pretty happy with how this is. If I was a newcomer (and I technically am given how unestablished I am) the articles would be the perfect length to sustain my really short attention span.

    Redeye Ruckus [Quest B]

    His sharp teeth were tucked out of view as Angus scratched his cheek, grinning at the lady's question. A glint of greed glittered in his eye as he considered whether the finely-dressed woman was a daughter, or even a wife, of a powerful crime-lord. The idea that he was in front of the Empress of Kadia herself didn't present itself to him. There was also the other woman, with whom he felt a kindred bond. The kind of kindred bond, however, that a wolf would make with another. Angus despised his fellow wolves. "Well, I don't exactly have a lead, 'cuz if it was that easy the Daius would've just grabbed the guy, yeah? But they don't call me a fixer for nothing!" In reality, if one was to ask a local about Angus' occupation, they would likely nod laconically to him sitting at a card table, or him in the process of trying to avoid the ire of someone else. Much like a sage of old who would pester honest (kind of) folks hoping to scrape a living, the Trickster had made himself a reputation of being a general nuisance to those parts of Izral that recognised him. Nevertheless, nosiness has its uses... "I know a few taverns and bars here and there in this here part of town for, well, just about anything! In fact, there's this fella, runs the Gorgon's Eye. He keeps a pretty close ear to the ground," the Trickster plodded forward, gaining speed as he cut through the reforming crowd before they could hem in the party. "It's not a safe place, of course. That's why I'd need some mea- some friendly folks like you two to keep me company. I'm sure we won't run into any trouble, though!" he smiled with the sincerity of an anglerfish. The streets of Izral was a gritty, grungy ordeal, the culmination of miserable lives, miserable rebels, poverty and treachery distilled into a single vista. That was, as one would expect, the nice part of town. Angus led the group in a seemingly haphazard route, making way to the city's edge before turning sharply away from a gate that would lead out of this cesspool. Pedestrians thinned as if they were approaching some secret part of the city. The atmosphere was a thick concoction of industrial ash and filth. The term 'urban jungle' was no more literal anywhere else other than here, where rats the size of kittens stared hungrily at them from the dark recesses of passed alleys. Glowing eyes of wild creatures and humanoids alike seemed no distinct from each other. It was as if they had made their way to another city entirely when they finally came upon a dilapidated building. A crumbling sign may have said ‘Gorgon's Eye’ when Valucre was young. Before Angus could so much as breathe, the door slammed open, the thick wood enduring yet another trauma to its frame. A pair of bloodied, drunken brawlers were deposited onto the street by a burly individual of indistinct gender. A long pair of downturned ears and ashen skin betrayed the drow’s race, though they were much bulkier than any of their kin. They paused, glared at Angus, then scanned the other two before retreating back inside, leaving the door open. “Nice place, innit?” Angus smirked. One of the brawlers groaned in pain.

    Sorry for the low quality, this is kind of all the editing I could bear to do. Life stresses and such yadda yadda. If it's unreadable let me know so that I can take the post off and rewrite.

    Redeye Ruckus [Quest B]

    As Angus dashed through the streets, the sounds of his pursuers died down. There was no point for him to look back, because he had no idea what they even looked like, but the young man did so anyways out of habit. He glimpsed the lady whose attention he was trying to get, earlier, but there was no sign of angry people after him. No sign of disorder, either, so it would seem that he only got one person from all his hard work. “So much for not having to go to a tav- Guh!?” As he absentmindedly jogged forward, he turned too late to see an intimidatingly coutured woman grabbing him in a lock. He instinctively flinched away, baring his teeth in a fight or flight response. “Watch where you’re going!” An irate porter yelled behind Angus as he collided into him. “Ah, sorry, sorry! The streets are a little crowded, isn’t it?” He turned to the woman, as if he didn’t snarl at her a moment earlier. He groaned a little, rubbing his fortunately-cushioned-by-a-hat head, before blinking at the two strangers towering over him. “I ah- Yes! Indeed! I have need of brave adventurers to aid me in the capture of a criminal!” Even as he stood on his feet again, it was obvious that he was much too loud for someone so diminutive. If it wasn’t for the brass-shaded daggers on his belt, he might even be confused for a rambunctious teenager. A very loud and intense teenager. “-A criminal by the name of- of…. uh,” there was a blissful few seconds of silence as he rummaged in his bag, producing a parchment, “Red-eye Torek! A dangerous criminal mastermind, indeed, one who had orchestrated a raid on the Daius’s weapons! Now, he intends to give this looted firepower to the rebels.” Angus made an attempt at what may be a confident grin, but only a glimpse of his sharp teeth was seen before he remembered about them, and settled for an amiable smile instead, “It is our duty, of course, to prevent that from happening. The Daius would reward you handsomely for your help!”

    Izral - Seeking Bounty Hunters!

    Looks good to me. You can find the OOC thread in this thread's first post... which leads to the IC thread because this is totally an accessible UI. You can post now and I'll post after.

    Izral - Seeking Bounty Hunters!

    That'd be great, I think we've settled around one week per post, but I'd really want it to be faster if possible. Which character would you be using?
  14. B - Redeye Ruckus - Bounty; Rescue - A thief and renowned gambler, Torek Redeye has delved into the arms trade after a run of bad luck at the gaming tables. Torek somehow came into possession of military grade weaponry and is looking to sell. The rebellion is, no doubt interested. Stop the deal, detain Redeye and eliminate the rebel scum. Return the weaponry to Daius HQ. OOC: We need one or two more characters to get things moving. Stuffs.
