Indeed, I wonder how straight up the innkeep was being with us. His recommendation is obviously this Sunmore woman, but who knows. Perhaps we should seek out each captain in kind and see how we feel about them? If anything seems off, we'll find a new captain.

Coming back tankard of ale in hand, Célestin says to his mate: "I think I'll have a bit of a stroll in the docks tonight just to check the reliability of our prospective captains. I just don't want to fall blindly for the cheaper price and end up as shark snack. Big cats are enough."

Walking around town, Célestin gets some basic info on the captains, mostly by casually bringing things up with marketplace vendors and teenagers eager to prove they know things.

Darice Sumore is a surly young woman. Darice finds the
presence of Pathfinders in Pier’s End revolting, for her father held membership within the organization. Never knowing her father, she grew up resenting the Society,but the one gift her father left her mother after their brief tryst was a wayfinder, which she still carries. She has been known to outright refuse any Pathfinders on her boat.

Small Otti is a fat halfling who maintains that his plump stature helps with buoyancy at sea. Well-groomed and always eating, Small
Otti is known for overcharging visitors, and taking bribes.

Crazy ol' Tanner is a disheveled, fish-smelling, and wild-eyed man easily located by Célestin. He's standing on the shore as thick gouts of grey smoke puff from his pipe. Between puffs, he is yelling at the sea, accusing it of being an unfaithful mistress and talking about how things were better when he was much younger.

Merisel considers the news. "It sounds like Small Otti will provide passage. Maybe Daggert will be able to negotiate another fair price."

That does seem to be the only option doesn't it. In the morning I'll head down and try to haggle a decent price and a decent bribe. Maybe someone else should have a chat with Darice and see if they can convince her to take us. Two options is much better than just one.

Assuming the night passes without incident, Daggert wanders down to the dock in search of a tubby halfling. Spotting Otti without much difficulty, Daggert heads over.

Good Day! Otti I presume? I've been told you sail to Escadar, and I'm looking for passage for five. Any chance you're making a run today?

The corpulant halfling, a turkey leg in one hand and gold coins from a distraught passenger in the other, smiles revealing more turkey. With his mouth still full, and grease dribbling down his chin, he says

"Of course. 50 g for the lot of you." He then belches food out of his mouth, laughs, and yells at his sailors to get on with loading the ship.

Merisel thinks 50 gold is an outrage for such a small distance. She squelches her immediate reaction and considers the situation. Maybe Daggert can strike a better bargain?

Fifty! I could buy the boat for fifty! I'll give you 10 gold even, and we'll throw in a jug of whiskey to boot. Truth be told I only popped over to check on your price, as we're likely sailing Darice. Her mum was an old friend of my mum, we go way back. She looks a bit full this trip though, so I figured I'd save her the hassle and check with you. But for 50g....

Meanwhile Flinder is trying to find Darice. When he does, he first looks from a distance. Then he comes closer.

"Good morning madam, yes. A fine morning indeed. I was curious, could our group acquire your sailing services soon?"

Meanwhile, Célestin decides to stay a bit behind and hide to check if they're being followed. Now they're in the city, they shouldn't lower their attention and be careless.

Merisel glares a bit and gives one of her better stares she uses to scare game animals, but Otti seems uneffected.

Otti takes another bite of the turkey leg, while pocketing the other man's gold, clearly thinking a moment...
1d20+3 = (7) + 3 = 10

"20 g for the lot, then. You beggar me, though my kind nature towards the unfortunate will be my ruin."

The young woman, who would be pretty if she wasn't constantly scowling and snarling, glances at Flinder then returns to inpsecting how cargo is lashed on the deck.

"To Escadar? How many people, and what kind?"

Meanwhile, Célestin is fairly certain they aren't being followed, though a few people are glancing over out of curiosity to see how the bargaining with Otti goes.
