    Post Arminas, Cael, Crdechzkragar, Emiko, Olo, Purusartha, Sauel, Xiaolong, Yorick

    Purusartha goes through the portal next, followed by the rest of you. Entering a different room so close, and yet so far, from the cellar is a little strange. It's a bit warmer here and the air has a different taste.

    Olo hangs the oil lamp he brought down from the cellar to brighten the storage room for everyone. Inside are all the usual provisions and supplies you might expect to find in use at an inn, along with racks of costumes and props.

    (Assume you can find whatever suites your tastes... within reason. Any prop jewelry is of very limited value and any weapons and armor are obviously fakes.)

    [What do you do?]

    Post Sauel

    It took Sauel a little bit to re-orient himself, still he felt lost as he didn't know this place. So far their second smallest pair of humanoids seemed to be the ones who would benefit from the fitting room the best, being Emiko and Xai. Plus Emiko probably wouldn't be in the back with the rest of them prisoners. Emiko as a geisha might be fine beautiful and clean but how the rest of them had been treated was another matter.

    ~Transporting prisoners or slaves from what the halfling said~ meaning there wasn't much to do for the three of them except make sure they were unarmed, not necessarily armor removed.


    Questions came up:
    Had they just been captured?
    How much of a fight had they put up before getting caught?
    Had it been only hours or possibly a couple days?


    Best if they all had some story prepared. "So if we're prisoners, I guess we might have some story of how we got caught, and probably aren't in perfect condition... I think we're all still sufficiently bruised to look the part; Were we already part of a group? Caught individually?" He doubted they would be questioned right away, still if one said they were caught for an hour and another said a day and the old man said something completely irrelevant then Olo's own life could be in danger and sniffed out.

    The thought also came up of Kasha poking her head in and how they would react to anything she said, but likelihood of her getting involved while she was recovering seemed low.

    Emiko

    ~Where to begin...~

    {Emiko let's Kitsune down on to the floor after climbing through the portal. She finds a make up kit and a mirror, and paints her face covering her forehead tattoo, making her face like a Geisha's. She searches the room and finds some fake flowers, a hair comb, flower patterned cloth, and ribbons. Styling her hair like that of a Geisha, she ties her hair up into a bun and adds ribbon and fake flowers. Emiko takes off her cloak and unwraps her haori. Wrapping the patterned cloth around her lower half like a skirt, she ties it with some string and wraps her haori closed over it to make it seem more like a kimono robe. She folds another color of cloth into a wide belt form to make an obi. Then she walks over to Cael holding the cloth for the obi and looking embarrassed.}

    "Cael... I am sorry to ask this of you... but... Normally other women are around to help a Geisha dress, and... I need your help to put on my obi..." She asks Cael quietly, blushing from the embarrassment.

    Olo: "I was going to say I found the three of you in a cave in one of the old mining shafts, hiding from all the trouble in the streets above. I used my trusty blowgun here... (Pulls a blowgun out from beneath his cloak)...to drug you so you didn't have a chance to shift or put up a fight."

    "Then I had the guards at the gate put you in chains and dump you in the cart behind my carriage. Anyone who questions us at this point will have to believe this, since there's no way you would've been able to sneak past the gate, even with my help."

    "I'll tell them I found you as I was going up to the surface to meet with the old man and escort him into the city. Unusual slavers come down here all the time so it shouldn't raise any brows. I don't watch my gate every hour of the day after all, there are four gatekeepers assigned to each gate. We work in shifts and are free to do what we may in our off hours."

    "I'm not supposed to use the carriage when I'm not on duty, but I thought it better to have the weight of my official post at our disposal, so I am going to lie and say I am escorting the old man as an official task from the king. I've even forged his seal and handwriting on these orders...
    (Pulls out an official looking parchment) ...that says as much. It won't stand up to a real inspection of authenticity, but as I am rather-well-liked down here I don't think anyone will bother to check."

    "I will tell anyone who asks that I intend to present the werewolf prisoners to the king for interrogation and execution as he see's fit. But of course we shouldn't go anywhere near the kings stronghold, which is why I stipulate in the orders to take the slaver to an inn called 'The Underhearth' that is nearer to our meeting spot with Ghost."

    "If anyone asks why I'm not promptly delivering these prisoners to the king, I'll say I'm just following orders taking the slaver to the inn first. However once we reach the other inn, we'll have to ditch the carriage and make our way to the meeting area without the cover of official business. That will be the most dangerous phase of my plan for us."

    Cael:
    Blushes also. "Err... certainly Emiko... let me see here..." He says, fumbling at the delicate fabric with his large hands and strong fingers (Dexterity Check: = 18) managing to help better then you might expect. "That looks good on you." He says... clearing his throat for no particular reason trying not to smile too much.

    Xiaolong Shu

    (Balance check=>16)

    Xiaolong managed well after transitioning between different orientations.

    "very useful that one, though no easy use, make the some dizzy."


    Xiaolong set out looking for an outfit to wear, (spot check take 10+2=>12) he ended up finding passable though maybe a little too plain for his character. Xiaolong then proceeded to an area where he could change without being seen (hide check => 14).

    ~Here I should be able to change in peace, hopefully...~

    Emiko

    ~Is he getting sick from all of this...? Ugh this plan is so stressful... I wouldn't blame him.~

    "Are you well Cael? You look feverish..." She says as she gently places the back of her hand on Cael's forehead.

    ~Hmmm normal... Strange...~

    {Emiko looks at Cael, confused, as she pulls her hand away. Kitsune jumps at Emiko's makeshift skirt and gets her attention. Emiko pulls the skirt down a bit more to cover her boots, knowing that geisha wear a different sort of footwear. She feels up her back with her hands checking to make sure the obi is correct. Once she feels it's secure, she looks at Cael once again wondering what's wrong with him.}

    (Disguise: 1D20+5 => 16, success. Fate Pool: 20D20 => 222)

    cred

    Cred enters the room and pulls his hood back over his head, returning his look to that of a lower class commoner no large then a little child. He looks for a collar and a break away 4ft long leash that can be attached to Olo's belt then he looks to Olo. Is there anything of yours you need me to carry to add to this disguise? He asks as he offers him the leash end to secure to his belt. I think this should do for my disguise. Unless you wanted me more of a trusted slave who doe dirty work for you.

    Post Arminas Mithrandir

    Arminas jumps down, watching everyone as they don their disguises to play their parts. Though he now has the play the part of the bodyguard, he looks about rather aimlessly at the assortment of costumes and props, occasionally touching a fabric or picking up a small prop to give it a quick examination. "I have to admit, I am at a bit of a loss here, being a woodland strider, I'm more of a lone hunter, as opposed to a bodyguard. Even as a caravan escort, I'm more accustomed to striking from the shadows. I'm not entirely sure how to look the part of a bodyguard. Heavy armors put a huge impedence on my skills."

    Post Arminas, Cael, Crdechzkragar, Emiko, Olo, Purusartha, Sauel, Xiaolong, Yorick

    Olo: Looks to Cred. "The collar is a good idea, but if I were you, I'd remove your cloak. A cloak indicates you can look after yourself, as a lowly slave you wouldn't really have that right. Your master would probably prefer to see you suffering, exposed to the elements more than he is. And also he'd want to show you off so people would see that he has a Kobold as a slave, which is rather exotic."

    "You see for a slaver, it's not enough to just have slaves, they want to have slaves no one else has. The more dangerous or strange the better because it scares people, and more importantly, shows others that they know their business by training the more difficult slaves to be obedient. So do your best to play the part of a slave that's been well trained so it reflects well on your master to make him look more convincing."


    [Cred: Do you remove your cloak? And if so... is your amulet visible to everyone when you do?]

    Olo: Looks to Arminas. "As a bodyguard what I would be looking for in appearance is to be intimidating. Hulking armored brutes aren't always the most dangerous warriors. Sometimes the sly and quick one are worse... so if I were you I'd concentrate on trying to look mean as much as possible... {Grabs the makeup kit from Emiko} ...try some tribal face paint for starters."

    "Elves are known to be fierce fighters when they want to be, especially when they battle their known racial enemies, such as Gnolls, Goblins and Orcs. {Grabs a necklace of what appears to be baby Goblin skulls} Here wear this, it makes you look more brutal and bloodthirsty! Remember to back that up with your demeanor. Give people evil stares as much as possible. Make them blink before you do... that sort of thing. But just the weak ones! Don't try and pick any fights down here with the really formidable types."

    Cael: Seems to pick up Olo's advice as an excuse to distract himself from Emiko's attention, grabbing what looks like a wolf pelt from the rack of costumes and drapes it over his shoulders, along with a large necklace that features dozens of wicked looking animal claws. He catches Sauels eye when he grabs the wolf pelt and smiles sheepishly. "No offense!"

    Cred

    He nods. I cannot remove my cloak with out relieving to much, let alone my armor. is it possible that I could be something else besides a slave? Maybe associate that assists in capturing slaves with traps, poisons, and drug mixtures. A Kolbold who raids is more believable underground then other things.

    Post Sauel

    "None taken.." Sauel replies with a smile. Even trappers had to make a living somehow. No it was far more scary if it was a were pelt as extra steps likely were involved in it, assuming it was even possible; That didn't stop certain stories from circulating though.

    Sauel looks over Cael and Arminas's face and exposed skin carefully looking for any particularly obvious scars, speaking to them sorta adding to Olo's suggestions. "Maybe a few scars to say they've gotten in the thick of battle... Either a few, or a lot, an especially wicked looking scar can make you a lot meaner than just dirty looks."

    "As for your use to me, don't trouble yourself so much about that just now. I am in your debt after all, I merely wish to offer you opportunities as an ally and benefactor. I hope you don't confuse my interest as manipulation?"
    Amaya: Amaya looked at Saeed a second while she listened to what he had to say and though about all that was going on. She really had no intention of any of this happening it wasn't part of her plans. Maybe it was just one side of her but it was saying to go with the flow and relax alittle. Amaya still didn't really see how Saeed was in her debt in any way, she just did one of the more logical actions that had come to mind at the instant after all. As she started to think, she realized she was mainly worried about getting into a situation around here where she couldn't land on her feet after a fall. "Fine, it doesn't seem like i have much of a choice in the matter after it seems i dragged myself into this situation." Amaya said before turning to look at Deidra. "But you know your free to do what you came here to do.... I mean the thugs didn't see you with me or Saeed so.. your pretty much safe." Amaya said while trying to figure everything out, she liked having a plan of some sort and everything that happened over the past half hour or so just tossed her plans out the window apparently.

    Olo: Furrows his brow at Cred. "What do you mean reveal too much?"

    (Cred, It is possible to tuck your amulet inside your garments and hide it that way even if you remove your cloak.)

    Xiaolong Shu

    Xiaolong finished dressing in the back and meets up with the rest the group.

    "You dare talk me that way, I very powerful! Travel very far catch a the beautiful slave in foreign land! You speak with the respect!" Xiaolong says this with a very stern face, then the face softens to a smile as he tries not to laugh.

    "This the fun, how I look?"
    Xiaolong states to the group with a grin, he then reaches under his disguise to retrieve his flask. The flask was opened then raised to his lips to his dismay only a partial gulp was left. He shook the container then looked into the hole as if magically wishing it held more alcohol.

    "Oh no, long day this the be."


    He had a sad expression knowing he would be sober until he could refill.
