Siella explores the town, trying to learn more about the area, and possibly pick up a side job. Specifically, she asks if there has been any trouble along the route where they had been asked to explore. She also tries to remember what she knows about the area.

Lilith goes to one of the local taverns to try to pick up some info that might help find the crown.

Siella:
(Diplomacy) Siella makes little headway on finding a side job or information from the townsfolk. She does know quite a bit about the area from her recent travels, however.

(Geography and Nature)The region of Varisia is largely wilderness outside of its towns and cities, inhabited by native human groups known as the Varisians and the Shoanti. Ruins dating back tens of thousands of years establish that the advanced empire of Thassilon once ruled much of the land, but has long fallen. Nature-wise, Varisia is a cold-temperate region rich in wildlife. There are many game and herd animals such as deer, boar, moose, and bison, as well as large carnivores such as wolves (and occasionally dire wolves), mountain lions, and both black and brown bears. Orcs and ogres live throughout the land and occasionally waylay vulnerable travelers. Goblins also inhabit the wilds, but are a more minor nuisance. At least, this is how the situation has been in the past; there are now indications that the orcs and ogres are appearing less often while goblin raids are more common and successful. The larger hobgoblins, normally seen only around the Hold of Belkzen, are appearing more often, particularly near Korvosa.

Caladur:
(History) Caladur's research reveals that the Emerald Crown dates back to the Runelord period of Thassilon, after the death of the Emperor Xin and the division of the empire into seven subregions, controlled by powerful mage-kings who practiced rune-based magic. It was traditionally worn by the Runelords of Shalast who governed east-central Varisia and it was plundered in the post-Earthfall chaos during the fall of the empire. Thraine's attempts to track the Crown have traced its plunderers to the Shoanti peoples of the Bloodsworn Vale.

Lillith:
(Diplomacy) You cannot find any information about the crown beyond what's already been mentioned. It's obscure enough that most people haven't heard of it.

Siella is ready and eager to leave town. Both to get on with the job and to be out of this overly-crowded, loud city.

Caladur meets up with the others as well, trying to avoid maintaining too much eye contact with Siella.

The group of travelers, four strong, left Magnimar on the road east. The journey was uneventful as they traveled through mostly-civilized lands as far as Sandpoint, but after another day passed from that point onward, the road led into the wild plains and hills. It was now late afternoon on the third day since leaving Magnimar, and the party was being watched...

Aven looks up at the goblin and grins, a feral expression on his face.  The ice blond, pale man looks over at the small black and white dinosaur who seems oblivious to what's ahead of the group.  He whistles to get the 'raptor's attention, Ironbite's head swivels over towards him and he cocks his head in bewilderment.

"Ironbite," Aven says, his voice a low burble, "Got a job.  Go scout ahead."

Wordlessly, something passes between Aven and Ironbite and the small dinosaur becomes a bit harder to see as he scamper's ahead as Aven takes out his bow and nocks an arrow.  "Trouble ahead," he says to the rest of the party, "got at least one goblin and a pit trap.  Probably more.  I've sent Ironbite on ahead to see if there's anything more."
