"I stopped being a heroic adventurer a long time ago." Max says sadly.
 "And yet,
even when it means pain and death to those nearest to me, I can't stop playing
at it.  Part of me wishes I had done what they asked."

Osiris nods.  "Yes, I think Max's visitor and that... creature chasing
us are one and the same.  I also think we should pay a visit to
Warden's Street."

"They won't likely stick around for long." Amanda says.  Where she comes from,
Amanda has had much experience chasing such villains down, and after what was
done to that poor girl, she will take a great deal of pleasure in
capturing these ones.

Max snaps to attention.  "Yes, m'lady.  I will do so immediately."  He
runs for an
adjoining room that appears to be an office of some kind.

Bongo follows Sia.  "I wouldn't have minded having my new armor ready.
 Let's not
forget that, or are stuff, which has apparently been taken upstairs
already by our
good patron."

Amanda follows Bongo and Sia on to the street outside, where the crowd is now
breaking up.

OOC: I'll give a few more days for everyone else to decide what to do,
so I'll continue
on Monday.
