Georgia laughs at Bertram's shenanigans and takes a sip of her brandy. "Hey want to see something else funny?"Arkrite wrote: ↑Tue Jul 09, 2019 2:17 am"Ah, they're just sour, don't mind them," He says then leans forward, "Want to see something funny?"
"Hey Derek, open the shutters, it's stuffy in here."
One of the men grumbles and goes to the windows, throwing them open one after another, resulting in a bout of people groaning and complaining as the sunlight lights up the dark room.
Derek stands at the window for a minute before sighing, shaking his head and heading back to his table muttering.
Bertram laughs again, "Ah, sunlight is good for those ol' ghouls."
"So Ale and Brandy?" he says digging behind the counter for a bottle of brandy, and pours some into a wooden mug, before dragging out another mug and fills it with ale, "So, what brings you to our little Podunk? I don't suppose the caravans are coming through again?"
She whistles a descending arpeggio and the windows all slam shut one at a time in the reverse order that Derek opened them. She give a moment for the other patrons to adapt to being returned to shadows before she snaps her fingers and the windows fly open again.
(OOC: Fun with Thaumaturgy. A warning, I intend to use thaumaturgy for as many shenanigans and bits of dramatic nonsense as possible.)
She turns back to Bertram with a cheeky grin. "As for the caravans running again...not quite yet, but consider it a work in progress. Someone with clout noticed that something wasn't right in these parts; weird rumors, trade drying up, all that, and decided to send us and some others to look into it. Hopefully by the time we're done caravans will be back to running as usual. But first I have a very important task from the fancy fusspot nominally in charge, to visit every inn and tavern in town in order to 'find suitable accommodations'."
Georgia pauses a moment and has some more of her brandy and gives an adorable pout. "You ever get annoyed at someone for demanding you go do something you would have done anyways? I mean its almost enough to suck all the fun out of getting paid to go drink my way around town."
