"That boy'll get himself into trouble if he's not more careful." He looks around for a minute. "Where did my jerky get off to?"


"Ki-yotes ain't the only one's with quick teeth Sunny-Jim. Tha old family dog could make off with a choice bit before ye could blink, methinks that Dog be just as quick." Cassandra grinnned cheekily at the coyote. "Anyways, we've gotten all we kin get heah. Let's head back an deal with whatevah has gotten t'the sherrif an tha town." she swung back into her saddle with practiced ease. "Common, tahm's awastin ladies an gents." she glanced sideways at the coyote-boy.

"Ye might want t'loose tha fur, At least while we're in town or weah folks kin see ya. Otherwise the best ye kin hope fer is bein chased outta town with pitchforks and torches." she warned him.

Stalks-from-Shadow/ Erica Clayton
HP 2
Cond: Normal

"There is much truth in what you say." Erica realizes a moment after she speaks that she belaboured the obvious... "It seems that some do not, however, recognize the term 'Garou.'

"I spoke it to judge reaction more than anything.

"In common terms, I am a werewolf."


She turns and starts hiking back to town under her human legs' steam... perhaps waiting for a moment to slip away and assume a... faster form.

Honesty

Honesty, still in coyote form, follows in the shadow of Erica, on his tiptoes, tail high.. looking like a coyote version of John Belushi in Animal House.. in other words, making himself complete obvious as he 'tries' to be sneaky.

Back at town things seem peaceful. Most people are headed to the Saloon or back to a boarding house after a long hard day's work. You see the Sheriff back in his chair outside the Saloon, rifle sitting by his side.

Cassandra White HP 2, condition normal
The girl scans the area, hunting for signs of Wyrm/Evil Taint, paying close attention to the Sherrif, however she's giving everything in the general area a good looking over as she saunters up to the sherrif.

Stalks-from-Shadow/ Erica Clayton
Character Sheet
HP 2
Cond: Normal

Although she felt the presence of the coyote behind her, Erica ignored him. It took some restraint - especially after the perching on the shoulder in that semi-solid manner. Thankfully though, neither Ahroun or Red Talon blood flowed through her veins.

Honesty was safe. For now.

Back in the village, she wanted to seek answers. The logical source was the sheriff. She would let the others do that. Instead, she turned to White.

"I would like to do some checking with the townsfolk." She said, "Id like to see if there are any records of who was buried back there."

By her tone and demeanour, she isn't "asking" permission so much as telling the Marshall her plan. Should anyone want to follow Erica will not stop them.

Cassandra HP 2, condition agreement
"Aye, good idear that." in a whisper, she added. "Check if'n thar be any ahh lawmen buried aye? An if'n ye can, sniff around fer any unpleasantness." she said her meaning very clear. "Ah'll be doin the same, but two or more noses in the air won't hurt none, I be thinkin."

IE: make sure the sherrif or the good people weren't walking dead or wyrm tainted.

Honesty

Honesty returns to human form somewhere along the way and walks the rest of the way.

With that massive grin he starts walking towards the bakery again, "Maaaaybe there's something wrong with the pie, maybe someone should investigate.."

CASSANDRA HP 2, condition normalish
The girl sauntered her way towards the sherriff and pulled up a chair. "Well suh, we went to the graveyard and came upon some maghty intrestin infermation." she said and described what she saw in the grave yard including what the spirits said in a calm, factual manner.

"Ah figgure ya'll think it's just crazy native hoo-doo an Ah just am one short step away from gettin me own tamahawk, but Ah seen enough weirdness to recognize somethin just ain't right in this heah town." she leaned back.

"Thar be more in heaven an earth than ye realize, not all of it is the stuff of angels an prayers. Ah deal with the stuff that ain't, usually in a might more lethal way than I'd like, but thar ye go." she shrugged eloquently. "So suh, what is really goin on heah? It ain't just bandits aftah ghost-rock or an easy bit of gold from tha bank Ah be thinking." she said, taking her hat off and slapping the dust out of it before putting it back on.

"Ah rekin, ye probably have been getting some disapparances, weirdness with the cattle and othah livestock, mutilations an the like, folks turnin up after ye be sure somebody said they got dead or somthin of the sort. Or folks just goin plain plum loco fer no good reason. One day they be awright, but the next they're frothin at the mouth and doin horrible unmannerly thangs that'd ye'd think they'd nevah do or be capable of. Ahm Ah close to the mark or way off?" she looked at the sheriff with a keen, knowin eye. If'n nothing like that has happened yet, then mebbe the sorcerer hadn't gotten powerful enough or worse still, he were bein keerful. The keerful ones were the most dangerus, in her opinion. Most necromancers were dumber than a broody hen and more egotistical then them blasted upper-crust city-folk, but ocasionally, you got a smart one. Them... Them were troublesum, ye could bank on that.

Honesty

Honesty continues to not do the right thing as something.. not terribly dull catches his eye and needs to be investigated. It might be a pie in need of kidnapping... or maybe a pretty girl.. just Not the horrible dreadfulness of not being able to eat at a cemetery.

As you pass by the people none of them seem anything out of the ordinary. The sheriff nods his head at your words. "Ah, yep we've had some cattle mutilation and some people disappearing but you get that with wild animals and a, what's the word that city fella used, transient population." The sheriff looks well not pleased but a little less grim at his use of the word. He scratches his head, "That means a lot of people moving through. I don't think we need to be getting superstitious about it. Get enough of that from the miners and townfolk."

Honesty

As you're heading to the baker's a very self important and portly man pushes by you and enters the shop.

Wanekia

Though you were initially, well, you didn't know what to think, about the strange nature of your companions on your ride back you heard a gentle whisper in your ear, "These are the ones that will help you heal the land."

Bladewind give me some detail on where you're going to talk to people

CASSANDRA HP 2, condition amused.

"Ah been chewed on by enough 'superstitions', not ta dismiss em outta hand." she chuckled dryly. "In any case, have tha mutilations been centered around one particulah place or person who owns tha cattle and have ye heard folks complainin about a particulah place or house feelin unnatural or somethin of the sort?" she scratched her head trying to figgure out where the necromancer might be hidin out or who he might'n be targetin next. "Be thar caves or abandoned injun settlements/houses or mines round here? Or injun burial grounds?" she looked at him sharply. "Have ye found any weird dolls or packets of odd things, like leaves and herbs an such wrapped around with a red string or ring, or places with alot of x's on em?" she hoped she weren't dealin with them voo-doo types like in Nawleans, them were scary folk. "Or places that have strange squiggles on em, look like pictures but ah smallah?

Inwardly Cassandra cursed. A keerful one. She were dealin with a keerful one. Dangit!

"Ah know the questions seem a bit odd t'ya suh. But Ah be tryin to figgure out what kinda critter we be dealin with and weah they might be holed up an who the critter might'n be targetin." she explained. "Since yer more familah with the territory round these parts and Ah ain't, it be important t'ask ye instead o flailin about like a green-horn and kickin up unnecessarah dust."

Stalks-from-Shadow/ Erica Clayton
Character Sheet
HP 2
Cond: Normal

Erica joins Cassandra when she speaks with the Sherrif, casually checking the area around his office and the sherrif himself for traces of the Wyrm. (Sense Wyrm)

Once done there, she wanders through town. She will go to the General Store, the Saloon. She will start by observing. At the Store she will buy supplies and will also get a drink at the Saloon. Erica is used to blending in with crowds, not being noticed and generally not causing a stir despite that she is also a 7'7" bipedal dire wolf in her spare time... (Hide in Plain Sight, Stealth +9)

If she senses something truly out of the ordinary she will investigate further...

Cassandra

The sheriff looks at you like you're half out of your mind. "I've not seen any satchels of herbs. Not much call for any around here. There's a few smaller caves around here, none big enough to hide much more than a few critters. Course there's abandoned mine shafts a plenty". The sheriff thinks for a second, "Nope only squiggly looking pictures I've ever seen was when the mayor's medallion popped out."

Erica

You don't smell anything that seems to be wyrm related but you do get a powerful stench coming from the sheriff's leg.

As you look around the town nothing seems out of the ordinary. In the general store a small, mousy man is putting away product. He looks over when you come in and steps down a ladder and comes out to greet you. Welcome, name's Jed. What can I do ya for?
