A man approached you last winter. He had a task and wanted to hire you for some legwork. The pay was reasonable and the task was neither dangerous nor illegal, so you agreed. He had you running all over Tarra’s View and just report on what you saw. Sometimes it was a place, sometimes a group of people, or something you read. It was bewildering trying to figure out what this guy was after, but there didn’t seem to be a pattern in his interests. One day he might ask you to get some info on Fungal creatures from the Underdark, another day he might ask you to hang out in front of the administration building of Servants of the People just in case something exciting happened.
Eventually he brought a group of you together. A small band of four. There was a Hill Dwarf Cleric of Tyr. Rather gruff guy. There was a High Elf, always with his nose in the air, or in a book, looked like some sort of arcane spell caster. Surprisingly enough there was a Tiefling as well, a mix between Devil and Human, you don’t see many of those around. Finally there was a Half-Elf street runner. She looked grim and determined. You could see she hadn’t had an easy life.
The first task the man wanted you to do was to observe a public event. He wanted you to work as a group and plan ahead. He wanted everything under observation at all times, that was his only demand. The event was a week away and you spent the time checking out the place and planning where you would be and rotating through the crowd and look out points.
Nothing happened at the event. It was a rather dull event, the quarterly budget inspection with open questions after. It was all about numbers, grievances and complaints. Nothing special.
Almost two quarters passed while the four of you worked together to observe public events and work as a team to do it. Nothing ever happened at any of them. Sometimes he gave you work as individuals or pairs as well. Finally he called the four of you together. He wanted you to meet at midnight 90th of Second in front a small square building at the back of the Servants Administration building.
