The treasure house of Jaizin Kaa

Know, o Prince, that between the years when the oceans drank Atlantis and the rise of the sons of Aryas there was an age undreamed of.

You are in Zamora, in the cheapest and dirtiest inn of the city "The belly", full of smoke and the smell of rotten food. Actually,it's not even an in: it's a tavern and everyone sleeps at nigth in the main room. The place is full of people: beggars, slaves, drunks, whores and thieves. The owner is in his late 60's with a big moustache. You are preparing to ask for some bread when the door opens:immediaty everyone shut up and try to pretend doing someting else and some do a supersticious sign against the bad luck. The newcomer is obviously a stygian: dressed with a big mantle in bright colors, he is middle aged, thin, dark features, shaved head with a strange frozen smile. He take a big look at everyone in the tavern and his eyes get widen when he sees you. He walks in your direction, sits and everyone seems relieved.

"Waiter, serve me you finest wine and your cheapest ale to them, I'l pay."

Tuya swats at herself. “This place is flea ridden.” She complains. She glares at the newcomer.
“What is a man like that doing in a place like this?” She whispers to Servius.

“What’s worrying is that everyone else is so relieved he picked on us.” Tuya looks up to see if there is a big ‘Suckers Here’ sign over their heads.

"No doubt it's dangerous," says Servius. "If it weren't, he could just have done it himself."

As soon as the waiter apears, the stygian pays with silver. He drinks just a little then says:
"My name is Ankh. I am a practicer of the arcane of a certain renowm. Recently a certain event have come to my attention and I need some help to solve a situation. For If you agreed to help me, you will be very well paid by your troubles."

Tuya glances at Servius, “We’ll be wanting payment up front. We’ve got equipment to buy.” She says to Ankh.

Servius nods, pleased that Tuya is a quick study. "And how well paid?" he adds.

Hs eyes turn cold and he seems impatient
"Very well, I'l pay in advance to buy equipment, but I'l subtract from your total fee. I was thinking to pay you 20 gold each.What kind of equipment you need?"

OOC: Just tell me what you need and I'l make the math. The game have some strange rules: paying your upkeep is usually cheap (an in with food and ale for a month may cost 1 gold at minimum depending the quality, but a knife may cost also 1 gold. So, 20 gold is a lot, if you are spending in a tavern... but it isn't if you are buying other stuff.

Spoiler:
We're going to need horses, for starters. I'd also like to get some thieves' tools. How much would those cost?

OOC: A kit of tools from thieves costs 8 gold, you only need 1. About horses, you still have the ones you bring from the picts.

Okay, I'll take the tools for 8 gold. The only other things I can think of that I might need are a lantern, a rope, a grappling hook, and extra crossbow bolts.

After you discuss the monbey, he asks you:
"it means you accept the deal and I can actually tell you what you are supposed to do?"- he says with sarcasm.

"That depends on what it is you want us to do," says Servius. "First, tell us what it is, and then we'll let you know whether we accept."
