Fox and Kamau were, once again, in for a surprise. When they met Gedramak to report, they were told that he had already sent for them, as Eliath was very much alive and had been seen sporting the colours of the Doomguard. With this new information, they went to a bar near the Armory where they were told that Sinkers like to hang out. They were met with a not-so-friendly attitude, so they decided that asking was out of the question. They would have to wait.
Of course, after a while, Kamau grew restless, so they agreed that he would go for a walk while Fox would wait in the bar in case Eliath showed up. The road took him to a place in the Lower Ward called the Red Pony, a place he had heard about and wanted to check out. After a beer and chat with Rakk, the barman there, he learned that a lot of working class folk of the Ward come to the Pony for a drink and a fistfight, always carried out in an informal, civil manner that was more like a gentlemen’s sports club than a bar brawl. Eager to compete again after so long, Kamau picked up a fight with a dwarf. Eventually, his opponent gave up and congratulated him as the crowd cheered. Feeling that he had found a place and people much to his liking, Kamau made a mental note to return to the Pony. His desire, mixed with curiosity, became even stronger when Rakk told him that there was a sort of “Inner Circle” meeting every Taker’s Day.
Leaving the Red Pony, Kamau stopped by the Oarsman for a drink. He asked Zegonz for something energizing, and was presented with a mysterious brownish drink that indeed seemed to revitalize mind and body. Pleasantly surprised, he made for the Black Sail, where he met a disappointed Fox, waiting all day to no avail. By then, it was already late, so they returned to The Bounded Space to rest and plan their next actions.
