I'll go ahead and say that Kadrok's roll for a dress also included your steward's uniform/robes,
so you're covered there.

Elsander takes another draw on his cigarette, looking thoughtful. "Someone in Lord Deloxan's party is stealing things from other noble households? Scandalous. Perhaps this auction won't be so dull after all. You're right about the reporters though- they'll be too focused on the high-born and the items up for auction to do any real investigation. No, you must come along too, my friend. *I'll get you an invitation, and we should make sure Sara comes along with her pet Koloss- Nothing can create a diversion quite like a Koloss-blooded steward of all things." He chuckles, shaking his head ruefully.

"So, what exactly did Lord Deloxan filch?"




*Obviously, Elsander doesn't know that Lestopher already has invitations.

Well, if you're going to deny me a four-player planning session, I suppose I'll have to work with Elsander here and now. *Makes greatly exagerated pout face*

"Don't bother yourself about getting an invitation for me." Grant says as he fans out the invitations he is holding. "Raisaal handed me an excess of them."

Grant sits down at his desk, drops the key back in its drawer, and writes down the lists of items and guests while they are fresh. While he writes, he says, "The real problem with our reporters is that the Basin and Beyond only has about two or three in Elendel at a time. Most of our reporters are out in the Basin at large---or beyond, as the title suggests. Those who are in the city generally have a dozen events to choose among on any given day. Lord Deloxan's auction would be scarcely a blip to their bronze."

Grant slides his notes over on the desk for Elsander to read.
***Official Report - Constabulary of New Seran***

Description of Item(s)
A silver and sapphire necklace
A gold pocket watch
A small copper figurine of a Terrisman Steward
A mist ball (featuring Kredik Shaw) with a bronze base (It's like a snowglobe :D )
A collectible aluminum coin

Signed Faldrin Scott, Constabulary Secretary of New Seran

Guests: Lord and Lady Deloxan, their son Arlin Deloxan, their Steward Joran, a few servants, and a few bodyguards.
Philio Raisaal hosted Lord Erol Deloxan and his party at a manor outside New Seran, during the Canal Expo.
Deloxan brought pieces with him to display at an art exhibit during the event.
"Thief" might have stashed the stolen items among Deloxan's art pieces.
"Thief" might be selling the stolen items during the art auction.
Raisaal is desperate for the stolen items to be returned. They are sentimental to his family.
Raisaal is at the Misty River Hotel, 4th Octant.


"Under the assumption that Raisaal is correct about the items being sold at the auction, the thief would need to be in a position to claim the money for those sales. A back room event, or someone who would already be handling the proceeds? But I'm assuming money was even a motive." Grants sighs and slumps back in his chair. "With so few facts to work from, practically everything is on the table. I don't see any clear line of inquiry."

Elsander reads the notes over. "Mm, yes. We'll want someone to search through the art pieces for any sign of the stolen items, and we'll also want someone to keep an eye on Deloxan's party- see if any of them try sneaking away to make clandestine business deals. Perhaps we should bring in Sara and her Koloss sooner, so that we can plan this out, yes?"

There you go, no need to pout. ;)

And cut. Scene ends; that's a wrap. Unless the Narrator has another idea?

Do we move to the Safehouse for a planning session, or do we continue in this thread? Where do we usually meet anyway? :)

You could visit Sara's Manorhouse. Its grounds are rather small, given the city and the family's position, but it will do.

Sweet, lets head to Sara's manor then. I'll start a new thread so things are more organized,
but it will be in action.
