'That's the thing,' Shalelu says, leaning forward. 'Individually, none of the tribes pose a threat to anyone but unprotected caravans. In order to launch a full scale raid on Sandpoint, several of the tribes had to be working together. But I've never heard of anything like that happening. It's very strange. The Thistletop tribe is almost surely the most powerful one.'

Shathys ponders over the information. "The goblins in the junkyard could pose a threat. And we could use coin. Would the townsfolk be willing to pay for us to cure the area?"

The ranger looks dubious. 'Clear Shank's Wood, you mean? You're welcome to try, but even I have trouble rooting them out.'

Jack scratches around his eye for a moment. "What would you suggest then? Is there somewhere we can effectively hit?"

'Once Belor returns with reinforcements, we should head for Thistletop. It's heavily defended, but something tells me answers can be found there. There's a bit more information about the goblins you might want to know.
Goblins generally live short, violent lives. It’s unusual for a single goblin to achieve any real measure of notoriety, but when one does, it’s well-earned. Currently, only five goblins in all of the Hinterlands enjoy the status of “hero.”
Big Gugmut is an unusually muscular and tall goblin from Mosswood who, it is said, had a hobgoblin for a mother and a wild boar for a father.
Koruvus was a champion of the Seven Tooth tribe. He was as well known for his short temper as he was for his prized possession—a magic longsword sized for a human that the goblin kept as his own, despite the fact that it was too large for him to properly wield. Koruvus vanished several months ago after he supposedly discovered a “secret hideout” in a cave along the cliffs, but the Seven Tooth goblins remain convinced that he’s out there still, a ghost or worse, waiting to murder any goblin who tries to discover his hideout. I have no idea whether it's true or not.
Vorka is a notorious goblin cannibal who lives in the Brinestump marsh, a “hero” mostly to goblins other than the Licktoad tribe.
Ripnugget is the current leader of the Thistletop goblins and controls what the five tribes agree is the best lair.
And then there’s Bruthazmus, an infamous bugbear ranger who lives in northern Nettlewood and often visits the five tribes to trade things he’s stolen from caravans for alcohol, news, or magic arrows. Bruthazmus has a particular hatred of elves, and we've fought on several occasions. Neither of us have managed to get the upper hand on the other so far.'

Her expression grows darker as she talks of Bruthamuz. Idly fingering a knife, she mutters to herself. 'I swear he'll fall before me.'

'A day getting there. A day getting back. If he's lucky and gets reinforcements saddled up quickly, he'll be back in three days.'

Shathys sighs exasperated and irritated. "Ale, please dear lady." Shathys calls kindly to the halfing servant. Then turns around to face the table. "Lets cut to the chase. My... our priority is not to patrol around and make people feel safe. Give us a location. We leave as soon as possible. I grow tired of doing nothing.'

Shalelu shrugs. 'As you wish. Follow the coast east, and you'll find Nettlewood. The entrance to Thistletop is somewhere in there. But I suggest you wait till morning to set out. Tracking goblins during the night, in their own territory and without a proper night's sleep is a foolish venture.'

'As soon as Belor is back, I'll be glad to join you. I'm always up for killing goblins, but I have a few tasks I promised Belor to take care of. If you insist on leaving before he comes back, it'll have to be without me.'

"Then what do we do until then? Walk around aimlessly like children?" Shathys demands.

Shathys imagines stabbing the little elfs hand, nailing it to the table, this train of thought brought a smile to his face before he came back to reality.

"Very well."

Shathys walks over to Ameiko.

"Ameiko, You are a very pretty lady, and as many pretty ladies do, you have knives, so I was wondering, just between us two secret lovers, if I could use a whetstone if you happen to have one? The company i've been keeping has left a sour taste in my mouth and I need to sharpen my blade."

Shathys looks over to Jack, expressionless for a moment, then nods.

'Sure,' Ameiko says. She rummages through a cupboard behind the counter and quickly produces a whetstone, which she hands to Shathys.

Shathys takes the whetstone and slips a gold coin in Ameiko's hand. "Keep the ale coming, if you please."

Shathys settles in front of the fireplace, and slowly begins checking his Spiked Chain, making sure there are no weak points in the chain, examining the blade for any kinks or nicks, then slowly begins sharpening the blade, the whetstone making low, sharp, *shk shk* sounds as it follows through, Shathys lost, gazing into the bewitching flames.

Shathys coughs quite loudly, to some it may sound quite like *cou-PLOUGH YOURSELF-gh*.

'Every Shadar-kai I've met are like that,' she says. 'Never happy unless they're in a battle. Preferably one where they're outnumbered ten to one.'

"Seeing as we're going to be fighting alongside him, I think I rather prefer grumpy Shathys over the outnumbered one." Shara has been quiet for most of the meal, just listening to what the others have had to say.

'Fighters without equal no matter what. He'll be invaluable if you plan on attacking a goblin lair.' She stretches. 'It's been a while since I've slept in a real bed, so if you'll excuse me, I'm off to get a proper night's sleep.'

After the talk Jack gulps the last bit of his ale down, excuses himself and goes to bed.

After a night of peaceful sleep, you wake up. It's about 9 in the morning.
