As he tries to lead Laura away from the scene, Cleo glances back, looking at Skuld and the cloaked, bulletin-pinning figure, before muttering to Laura.

"I've heard of a one-armed man in a paper-hanging contest," he says, "but I never thought I'd see one."

"Now, let's get inside," he continues, "You and I? We have a sermon to write."

Upon the lower half of the poster about the paladin and the half-drow, clean, calligraphic words are left in a not so clean or eloquent manner.

Sounds like horse shite.

"Elven.... Paladin?" Elric squints at the absurd message.

Thinking to himself rarely had he met those elves who had either had good morals or more rarely conduct not guided by emotional whims and fancies.

Clearly there was some kind of error in translation to common.
There are no Elven Paladin Orders. Were they any perhaps elven civilization would not be in decline across the world as it is today.

As he sees Laura and Cleo he walks towards them and escorts them away from the crowd.

Alexander would come over to the crowd, and clear his voice. Loudly. Clearly, the man needed the attention of all whom where there.

He would wait until he was possibly noticed, taking a moment to gaze about the crowd.

"As ye all know, Shadowdale has been. . . subject to recent tests of The Law and the understanding and interpretation of such."

A pause.

"Now, I don't mind change. Ye want something done about The Law, petition for it to be changed. What I -do- mind, is when a multitude of citizens approach me in private, because they are Fearful of what will happen to them when they speak they mind. I don't like that one bit."

He looked back at each individual.

"I won't tolerate that behaviour in these here walls, and in this here town. The Law states they can be here, and if ye don't like it, petition against it. Ye lot already had a worshipper of the Dark Lord kicked out, so what's stopping ye from doing the same here? Direct your words towards something good, rather than disturbin' the peace and causing a ruckus."

"I'm going to ask ye once and only once to break this here group up and continue on. Feel free to rally a cause, by all means, go for it. Just don't make other citizens feel unwelcome in -their- home."

"And whoever is harassing and threatening my people, knock it off. I'll give ye one chance, and only one. I know who ye are, and I -will- take action."

With that, Alexander was done. He would simply wait for the actions of others to set it.

Saved by Cleo and the clever use of baking needs, Laura walks with them away from the crowd of angry and worried voices. She glances back to the crowd only when Cleo mentioned Skuld.

"She's not a man." She whispers to him. "That's Skuld."

She heard someone coming up behind her, and she turned briefly only to see it was Elric. She gives him a brief smile then continues to be led on by both of them.

"Wait..a sermon?"

Skuld would look at Alexander and turn around walking away looking a last time to the dwarf.
"The only way to avoid getting stabbed is being smarter than everyone around you, besides, I would need an extra hand to stab someone"
After her poor arm joke that she was fond of using, she left the place.

More and more people seem to be getting up in arms, some of them whispering of a revolt. Sneers, worry, many expressions cross the faces of the citizens present. Some words that stick out...


"We should stand up...."

" need...."

"....break them down...."

"...nothing done without us..."

At some point, an albino half-drow would have been watching the crowd from a safe distance, attempting to stay out of sight and go unnoticed in the shade somewhere off to the side.

A man with golden eyes and silvery hair, raises his voice in a articulated manner and peers around the crowd with a smile. He attempts to talk to the commoner - citizen, farmers, beggars and the like - and not the adventurers, or elders. His voice is soft, and he walks to somewhere higher, to be able to be seen easily. He is wearing a red, clean and what seems like being made just for him, shirt and carries an amulet being a black string with a symbol of Sune around his neck.

People of Shadowdale, please lower your voice, and let me speak my words. This topic is indeed troublesome, I know quite well the story about this city and the drows, and i do understand the dangers of allowing those of both normal and drow blood inside the city. I know that all of them are not to be trusted, but I can assure you, that this is not all of them! As it is said, in The Lady Firehairs dogma *He clears his throat as he quotes* "Beauty is more than skin deep. It issues from the core of one's being and reveals one's true face to the world, fair or foul.". Yes indeed these born with both blood in their veins, looks differently, and therfor they should earn the trust among us - but we can not be sure, that one of these not can be the one, that saves your child *nods to a woman* or perhaps helps with your crops! *nods to a farmer with a smile*.
I ask you, honored people of Shadowdale, being farmers, guards, workers, everyone of you that can call this beautiful city as their home, to listen to my idea.
Maney of these half-drows have proven not to be trusted. Let them wear bells as they enter the city, around wrists or neck, so that everyone can hear them, so that they do not steal your hard worked bread, or your precious belongings. If they wear a bell, it would be possible for everyone to know that they are here, and if they accept to wear it, we know that they are ready to try to prove for you, that they understand their evil heritage, and wants to change it.
If one does not want to wear these bells, or takes them off - fear not! Instead of throwing them out of this marvelous city, let them work. Let them work for the better of this city! Under a watched eye of course. Let them do the jobs, that is hard and tedious, and let them do the jobs that can help the city. This will help everyone of you, while also giving them a chance, to see the beauty of what you do everyday - working hard to build up and get running, all of this *gestures to the city around him with a smile*.
If they still do not prove to be willingly to do good in this world, yes, let them out of the city. Dont let them come back. Dont let them corrupt the ground of this beautiful town.

*He bows slightly* I hope you will think about my idea, i am but a man like you all, but i belive this will do better, than just standing around here - and it will help the city more, than just bringing them outside the walls, doing possible evil deeds elsewhere.

Sighing deeply watching from the steps of the House of Plenty, Sophia plucks up some courage and wanders over to the crowd

"Are you people Mad? Are you going to let yourselves fall prey to the mad ravings of one person that none of you have ever met. Yes perhaps they should be questioned, these Half Drow. But Not by any of you, other than the Sheriff, the Elders or Deputy. If you truly are the people I know you are, Decent, law abiding citizens of Shadowdale. You will the the new government do their duty to keep you safe. If any have worries, please. always remember, that the doors to the House of Plenty are ALWAYS open to you.

Please ignore that poster, the person putting it up hides their face from view, they do this to rile you up, to bring Chaos to you lives, to make you doubt your goodness.

She speaks to them not in raised voices, nor in anger, but a soft gentle compassionate fashion

An old human man clad in a uniform-like fullplate-armor stands some way back, watching the scene with his single stern grey eye.
His right elbow idly resting on the hilt of his peacebound sword and his left hand held on his lower back.

He watches as the crowd grows and listens to the murmors from the common folk. His stern eye rests on the adventures who speak in turn and if close enough, a flicker of a smirk on the old cormyrian soldiers mangled face can be seen

An elven warrior who is not often seen in the town stops by and watches. After he realized what is going on he mutters:

"Half-drow does not mean they are only half as evil. Often I believe that no matter how much of their blood they have, they are just as bad."

Cruven walks over to the little scene of chaos and smirks once he finds out what it's all about. As usual he leans back against a wall or something near by and crosses his arms and mutters to himself.

"I'm all fer gettin rid o' the spider-bloods, hope this's a good show."

A tall and thin human with dark hair and fine garments speaks loudly in reply to William.

Yes! Give them your trust! Rely on them to save your children and tend to your crops, that later they march your children to the altars of their gods or sully your harvest and drive this town into starvation!

Good people! I implore you to look no further than woods that lie on the edges of this town! Their kind skulks them in the night, preying on travelers to rob, kill, and enslave them! Were that the abomination that resulted from a person and a goblin to wander into town, it would be met with the justified scorn it deserves! These hybrid creatures are no different, I assure you! Their blood is tainted with evil, their hearts as black as their kindred's skin! Evil begets naught but evil!

Talk of a hooded, angry elf trying to force a "dhaerow-blood" out of Shadowdale in front of several witnesses - only to be told to leave by a guardsman that sided with the dhaerow-blood - spreads around Shadowdale.

A woman dressed in common-folk robes and low-hood would walk by the crowd, watching. She would speak, however uncertain if any would listen.

"People of Shadowdale, I do not expect you to defend me... but I implore to please first think of your actions before blindly accusing every half-drow of murder, stealing, and worse." She paused,

She began again, "I do not say to not be ignorant of crimes committed by those of bastard blood. But I say simply: to be cautious. To treat those who have been found guilty of crimes to be treated as any other criminal. Do not choose blind, genocidal killing over 'just' reason. If you choose this, people of Shadowdale, you are no better than the drow themselves--or even the previous Zhentarim. You have seen me--a Half-Drow--healing your people--going out of my way to help those in need. Regardless of race. I have been here since the Zhentarim, and I have never had ill will of the goodly people." She trailed off...

"I myself, will be watching for those who seek to cause harm to Shadowdale or any goodly person when I can. But I would ask for those I fight for, to defend me, and the other proven goodly half-drow." She would speak out, and then fade back into the crowd.
