When Vogh returned to Inlios she pretends to buy something to get him in conversation.  She throws in keys words to let him know it is her speaking.  She will then tell him to listen to every third word as she talks.  The message will be after all done.

The Dreaming Apothecary is onto you and think you are making magic items.  You know that others have had a bad time of things after the Dreaming Apothecary wants them taken care of.

Inlios

Inlios haggles a little over price until the disguised Vogh backs down and walks away without spending any money.

===========================================================
Vogh
———————————————————–
It was getting time to head to The Griffon to meet with Inlios for dinner.  She wondered how the rest of his day was.  Vogh had plenty of questions to ask him, but not for Sala the woman whom asked for them.  Vogh wanted to know more about The Dreaming Apothecary and the missing people she had heard about.

Vogh chose a seat in the corner of the establishment so he could keep an eye on the whole place.

===========================================================

Another mainstay of Tavern Row, the Griffon is both a tavern and an inn. One can identify this two-story building easily by the large mural of a rearing griffon painted on one wall. The tavern, its kitchen, and a pantry comprise the entire lower floor of the Griffon, while the upper floor has ten rooms to let. The tavern offers food, mainly just whatever is cooking over the fire that night (occasionally a roasting pig or a flank of beef, but usually a big pot of lamb or beef stew) as well as a few other dishes: a plate of bread, cheese and a little fruit, a plate of fried potatoes and onions in gravy, or a cooked meat pie.

The Griffon, which caters to the common folk, enjoys a reputation as a friendly, safe place to drink or eat. It avoids the sinister associations of such places as the Onyx Spider and the adventurous nature of establishments like the Ghostly Minstrel. Nella Schaun is the manager of the Griffon. The tavern is full to bursting every night, with most rooms filled as well.

Vogh is able to find a booth table in the corner as the place hasn’t started to fill up yet.

She wasn’t kept waiting long as Inlios entered shortly thereafter.

Is Vogh showing as herself, or still in her disguise?

===========================================================
Vogh
———————————————————–
Vogh is her normal self

When Inlios walks in, Vogh waved him over to her table which already had his favorite drink and also a nice sweet elven wine filled glass for herself.  Vogh had also placed the order for two plates of the house special for the evening.

When he sat Vogh looked over to him and asked, so how was the rest of your day?

===========================================================
Inlios
———————————————————–
The gnome stepped up into the chair and took a kneeling sort of position to be able to be comfortable.

“Thankyouforthedrink. Whatdidyoumean about the Dreaming Apothecary beingafterme?!”

===========================================================
Vogh
———————————————————–
You are welcome my friend.  Vogh said and as Inlios asked his question she took a sip of her wine.  Ah yes The Dreaming Apothecary, I had a woman approach me just after I had spoken to you the first time.  She wanted me to spy on you.  She said you were making illegal magic items and should be brought to justice.  Naturally I laughed at this and began to question her and her motives.  She didn’t come right out and say that she worked for TDA, but I have a feeling she has at least associates that do.  Now I have also heard that there have been many strange disappearances and “accidents” with people who were making magic items.

===========================================================
Inlios
———————————————————–
Inlios stands up in the chair and practically shouts!

“No! No! NO! NO! Inevermakemagicitems!icantevenmakemagicitems!someonespreadinghorriblerumors!! oh my oh my oh my…

He is visibly shaken as he grips the table standing the chair.

===========================================================
Vogh
———————————————————–
Vogh patted her hands downward to calm the gnome down some.  They didn’t need to attract any eyes their way and especially about magic items and such business.  Calm down, I know you haven’t made items in the past, but I have been gone a year and you may have learned a trick or two while I was gone.  I had to ask….  I will make a report and find out who is trying to soil your name.  For the record, I don’t care if you were.  I would congratulate you on your success.  After all it isn’t illegal and they can’t corner the market on crafting.

===========================================================
Inlios
———————————————————–
ohohoh but theycan. and. theyhave. very dangerous.

===========================================================
Vogh
———————————————————–
Just then the food arrived and Vogh thanked the waitress and began to taste some of the beef medallions she had ordered for herself an Inlios.  MMmmm, delicious, have some will you and lets just enjoy the rest of the meal together.  You can tell me what you know of the strange things that have happened to people, if you know that is.

===========================================================
The gnome finally calmed down when the food arrived and picked at it as he explained basically what Vogh had already heard.

Anyone making and selling magic items in Ptolus seemed to disappear. The Dreaming Apothecary organization had a monopoly on selling new made magic items. Several places, like Myraeth Tuneweaver – owner of Myraeth’s Odities – were allowed to sell items which they simply purchased from others. The Delver’s going beneath the city found a lot of things which they sold and no one seemed to have an issue with that.

He had never heard of Sala when Vogh gave the name of the woman who wanted to hire her.

===========================================================
Vogh
———————————————————–
Nodding and giving acknowledgement to what he was saying a Inlios talked about the stuff that has been happening.  Finally when he is done explaining everything to her, she tells of her adventures away from the city and the things she has learned along the way.  So, what will you do with the knowledge they are after you?  What can you do or can someone do for you?  Will it even help if I send message that you aren’t making magic items?  Why would they even think that you are anyways?

===========================================================
Inlios
———————————————————–
Hrm…. goodquestion… Ineverheardofanyonescoutingforthem… Peoplejustdisappearordie… Ifyouplease. Yes. TellthiswomanImnotmakingmagicitems!

===========================================================
Vogh
———————————————————–
With the meal finished and paid for, Vogh gives the little gnome a hug and tells him that she will do as he asked.  Might I suggest a little vacation if you can.  Lay low for a little bit, or if you want to stay selling to show you are innocent I guess that would work as well.  For now I will take my leave and I will be getting back in touch with you at a later time.  Farewell my friend.

When she leaves the place she strolls on over to the Ghostly Minstrel and seek out Tellith.
