Looking for Hoid

Dying Light

Postby Herowannabe » Wed Sep 17, 2014 3:49 pm

Gash visits the market, picks up a fashionable- and colorful- suit, and spends hours wandering through the marketplace. No sign of Hoid. Gash is just about to leave when he notices a bit of graffiti painted on what used to be a Ministry building. The graffiti is just a series of colorful brushstrokes. Sighing, Gash glances around to make sure nobody is paying attention, then recalls enough Breath to reach the third heightening. Sure enough, the seemingly-random brush strokes are actually the artisan's script.

Gash quickly reads the message- instructions from Hoid on how to contact him- then stores his Breath again. He looks around again- a few people glance at him oddly, but soon shake their heads and continue on with their business- before making his way back to the Safehouse.

*********

Later that night, Gash sits by the open window of the room he shares with Jerrard. The Thug is out with Jaira for the night. A soft rustling announces the return of the strawman he had sent out earlier. Following Hoid's instructions, Gash had sent the strawman out with a letter and the bead of Atium he had acquired. The small figure climbs up into the window sill, carrying a letter under one straw-arm. Gash takes the letter, then says, "Your Breath to mine." The straw figure falls limply to the ground as Gash's Breath is drawn out of it.

The letter- which was written on the back of Gash's own letter- reads:

Well done. Continue to ensure that Elend Venture and lady Vin survive the upcoming events. I am chasing rumors of the location of the Well of Ascension, so you will be on your own for a month or two. Be cautious, we are not the only off-worlders here. Apparently a disgruntled acquaintance of mine has followed me here. I'm not sure how he managed it, but that's what I get for killing his brother. Be on your guard. If he learns of our association he may come seeking you.

Good luck.
