Lorae looked again at the venom sac on the girl's head, it was gone.
She turned to the Mother, "The poison is gone," she announced, "I will give you some herbs that will lessen her fever, which should come down very fast now the poison is gone. There should be no more cramps. Best find out where she was yesterday, and then clean out the area. Most very poisonous spiders like to lurk in dark places."
"Melikki bless you," the Mother said hugging her daughter. "Please allow me to give you something for what you have done."
"I believe Alexandria feels the same as I," she looks to the Drow Priestess, "Your thanks and your daughter's health is all we need."
Alexandria finishes her search of the body, and nods. Taking the girls clothes off of the bed, and placing them neatly on the ground beside the bed, and tucks the girl in under the covers. Reaching in to her dress, she pulls out a small obsidian figure, with some ivory also sculpted into it. "I agree with Lorae, miss. You do not need to give us any token of gratitude. In fact, I wish to leave this here."
Placing the figure on the bedside table, it is now identifiable as a naked woman dancing, with long, flowing hair. A sword in hand, the woman has a smile on her face. "It is a figure of Eilistraee. She will watch over your daughter as she sleeps. Your child will dance with the Dark Maiden."
Placing another kiss on the child's forehead, Alexandria whispers, "Sleep well young one. May you live a long, healthy, and joyous life."
Turning back to Lorae, Alexandria says, "Well, I believe we are finished here, isn't that right Lorae?"
Devon decides he hasn't had enough to drink and needed something to wash down what was lingering in his mouth from breakfast.
He waves down a hostess and makes his order.
"I would like some herb tea with lemon please",he said then looking to Brianna, he asks,"If you'd like something its on me, anything you would like to drink." He awaits her answer.
He'll buy whatever she orders, or just take his herb tea if she wants nothing.
Just then Lorae and Alexandria enter the inn saying,"I hope there is something left for us."
"Of course there is, in fact I was just offering to buy Brianna a drink. Here,Let me get you two something fresh."
He slowly sips his tea down, relishing the taste. When he finishes his tea, He gets up and finds the hostess that served him and tips her 1 gp.
"I'll be back momentarily, won't be long",Devon lights his pipe and leaves the inn for a moment.
He nonchalantly strolls to the gates of town from which he entered earlier and finds a secluded spot to cast Mount to summon his horse.
Devon reenters the city with a fair buckskin stallion and lashes him to the hitching post. He goes back into the inn to see Brianna.
"Would you like to see my horse, Brianna?"

Plenty is left. In the kitchen. We had it kept hot and ready for you. how is the child.
Response Alexandria OR Lorae
"Oh, by-the-way, take a look at all the blacksmith's daughter has brought fo rus to look over. These are the stuffed winter garments that she says are sovereign againgst the winter cold of the mountains."
Brianna points over to the garment laid out at the nearby table. "Prices are marked on them. They are surprisingly light for how bulky they looks. I bought a long tunic and overpants. A hood with neckl wrap as well. I am thinking about some boot sock as well."
"Choose and we need to get on the way."
"Devon has asked to travel with us. I told him to wait until we had all gathered.
"I like this hooded long overcoat", Devon says as he lays eyes on a dark colored (somewhere between brown and black) long coat, that on Devon, the bottom of the coat would reach his knees. The coat also has a thick hood that looks as if its made to hug the ears to keep them warm.
"Yes and thick warm socks do sound like a good idea as well.
You say there are prices but I don't see a price anywhere. Could you find it for me?"
Once the price is found Devon will pay for the items He has selected, then put them into his haversack until needed.
"The child is now doing quite well Brianna, thank you for asking. She was ridden with poison, but through Eilistraee's grace, she was cured of her affliction. She now dances with the Dark Maiden."
Ordering a plate of eggs, Alexandria sits down, and begins to eat. She hums softly as she eats, a haunting melody.
"I myself do not need to purchase an outfit like that. Eilistraee's loving care shall protect me from any extreme temperatures which we encounter."
Turning to Devon, Alexandria smiles a warm, welcoming smile. "Hello there Devon. I do not believe I have properly introduced myself yet." With a deep curtsy, she says, "My name is Alexandria do Iivates, and I am a priestess of Eilistraee. As a new addition to this group, I cannot say that I speak for them, however I do believe that the more people which we have with us, the better it would be."
"I'm glad to make your acquaintance, Alexandria. I'm glad to hear the child is doing well now. I am grateful for your acceptance. It will be a lot better traveling in such company.
And don't worry, I won't be a bother to y'all, in fact I do have some skills in which might be useful to the group in the future. When I'm sure there are no mule ears around to hear me I'd like to tell the group more about myself later on."

"Forgive me if this seems a bit ignorant... but may I inquire as to our destination? I don't believe I have been informed as to where we're going. However, I am sure that anywhere we are going is a fine location."
Alexandria asked this while stroking the hilt of her sword, being almost comforted by its presence.
"We are heading to Cormyr by way of Tilverton. From what I have heard it is about 125 miles to Tilverton from here, from there about another 180 to a small city southwest of Tilverton. Then it will be over the mountains and into Cormyr proper, though once we reach Tilverton we are said to be in Cormyr."
"We seek information about a sword, it is called the Sword of Truth. Have any of you from this world, ever head of it?"

Brianna paid generously for the cold weather garment she had selected. She tipped the serving wench and the innkeeper and went outside to her horses. Mounting up on the stallion she rode over to the stable man and tipped him too. She had plenty and little to use it on. She expected the money would be appreciated, especially is such a small village. She turned back to the front of the inn and waited for the others. The makeup of their group had changed again. Time will tell is they continued on with them on their quest and became those prophesied or not. If not they would go off on their own track as others had.
The day was still brisk and the cool of the late summer morning had not yet faded with the rising sun.
Alexandria's brow furrows, letting Lorae's words strike her. The Sword of Truth. She had heard about it... though her experience told her that the story was different depending on the race which was telling about the Sword.
"To the drow, the sword is one of power, able to slaughter thousands of people with one single sweep. I, however, do not believe this to be true. Nobody would be able to craft a sword like that. But I do believe it exists. Only that the story is different."
"Also, I am ready to travel whenever you are. I am prepared."
The newly formed group mounted and moved down the village road to the Moonsea Ride. They soon turn west as they come to the main road. The sun moved overhead and soon moved to in front of them. As the sun lowers the the top of the mountians before them, it is time to to search out a campsite for the night.
During the ride, Lorae and Brianna take time to dismount and walk or jog along the sides if their mounts.
(Post your actions as to how you travel and any converstion you muight get into.)
