Conversation 1: 1/15/17
Me: “Okay. Seriously. Why did you run at the sight of me?”
Lance: “Its the only way to get away from you, I guess. Never works.”
Me: “We’ve literally met once. What makes you think you need to get away?”
Lance: "Bad feeling about you. " She adds bitterly.
DM: She is clearly hiding things.
Me: “Look. If I’ve done something to offend you I’m sorry but I didn’t do it on purpose.”
Lance: “Look, it’s fine… You run with those Friends people, right?”
Me: “Friends of Man? No. The opposite in fact”
Lance: “Why do I see you talking with them like, all the time?”
Me: “They keep harassing me”
DM: You hear something going on outside.
Me: Pearce sighs. “Lancette if you can give me a sec. Something is happening outside”

DM: Mercenaries burst in and stuff happens.

Me: “Wait up.” I shout once we’re in the clear.
DM: Lancette slows.
Me: “Phew. Seems like we got out. You have any idea who they were?”
Lance: “Looked like the Veteran Elite mercenary group. Why would anyone hunt Dogan?”
DM: Veteran Elite are Bluepole mercenaries hired by the Weather Society.
Me: “I have no idea why they would be after Dogan”
Lance: “Alright. Well, that lecture was a boring one. But Dogan is entertaining, I guess. Don’t know why he keeps mailing me invitations.”
Me: “That’s between you and him. I’m more concerned with how you apparently know who I’ve been talking to. Have you been tailing me?”
Lance: “Not you.” She says flatly. “The other one. Falconflight.”
Me: “Wait. Are you saying Falconflight is working the Friends of Man? Is that who you meant?”
Lance: “No… Where did that come from? I’m just tracking him. Lucky said he is important and veterinary visits aren’t free.”
Me: “You said you saw me with tons of Friends of Man while you were following Falconflight… Moving on what makes him important? Also… he’s a vet?”
Lance: “Well, he is a witch doctor. I assume that isn’t an honorary title.”
Me: “So he has you following a private eye because he’s important in something”
Lance: “and I get half off vet services. Yes.”
Me: “He’s never mentioned what he’s important for? or how?”
Lance: “Something to do with the demons? Lucky said he believes Falconflight was part of the cause and can become part of the cure, if things go well. Whatever that means.”
Me: “Okay. Fair enough. Ummm well. Stay safe I guess? Unless you got evidence that the Friends of Man are evil. That’s why I’ve been around them. Trying to find proof. Since you seem to fear them”
Lance: “Dogan fears them. He says they are more dangerous to the city than the demons.”
Me: “True”
Lance: “So… What is your involvement with them?”
Me: “I’m trying to prove they’re dangerous so other people besides Dogan will take them seriously”
Lance: “Ah. Well, what have you found?”
Me: “That I can prove? Nothing. I know they’re abducting a lot of people and potentially spreading a disease”
Lance: “Which disease?”
Me: “Colorblight. Nasty stuff. You don’t want to catch it”
Lance: "alright, well, I have to go now… " She says, looking away
Me: “Ah. Okay. Well keep safe. They’re gonna keep looking for Dogan”
Lance: "Yeah. I don’t know what happens when they catch him. "
Me: “Bad things”
Lance: “Good luck out there.”
