When she enters the tavern, she greets the patrons with a nod, and starts to follow Elisa to the table.
She nearly runs into Ancil when he suddenly stops, but manages not to. Shooting him an look, she murmurs "Are you all right?", but will not impose.

As they sit down at the table, she puts down her sea bag and flexes her shoulders - it doesn't seem like she's used to carrying it around all that much. She lets Elisa handle their drinks, and massages her temples. After a second, she seems to remember something and pulls a large book from her bag - Songs of Callistan.
Carefully, she opens it - it seems very dear to her, but at the moment, she seems to look for something.

"Calziver buy one food, drink, and room. No mug." He says to the waitress as he pulls out four silver from his bag and hands it to her. "Calziver pay for more if needed", saying this more to the group at the table, in case anyone was short a few coins. He returns to trying to stay as unnoticed as possible, which is difficult as a Svirfneblin in a human bar in a remote human settlement. Still, it could be worse... I wonder where the dwarf has gone.

Norio does not acknowledge the waitress with anything more than a brief glance, and he lets Elisa (or whoever is taking the initiative of being social) order for him. His attention is instead focused on two men, who are sitting at a table in the far corner of the room. One talks on and on, while the other munches hungrily on a leg of chicken. They both seem to have noticed Norio's watchful gaze, and are watching him right back.

Norio retains his impassive expression, and keeps his motionless equipoise in his chair, but he does not move his gaze from the two. The only indication that he's paying any attention to the conversation at hand comes once someone at the table has placed the order. Still looking at the far side of the room, his hand goes to his coin purse. He scatters five copper on the table and says, "No ale with my meal."

Returning to the table, Ancil shakes off the remnants of a headache and sits down. "Making sure Kildrak isn't about. He wasn't," Ancil says by way of explanation to the other group members. He casts a look about the table to see if anyone notices something odd in the demeanor of the waitress. Returning his attention to the waitress, he too pulls the necessary amount of coins from his purse and lays them out on the table. At the mention of the waitress' husband being in charge of keeping the rooms, Ancil ventures "You must be Mistress Jinnie, then? Your inn comes well recommended by Father Tobias," he says attempting to establish friendly conversation with her.

Elisa sighed in relief, at least there wouldn't be another scene between Kildrak and Norio within the walls of the humble tavern. Elisa nods as Ancil attempts to make friendly conversation with their less than hospitable company. "We're sorry to have burdened your kitchen staff,ma'am, but yes, some food and drink would be lovely." She locates her own coin purse, and notes the man to whom Jinnie has gestured. She orders for Norio and Kyra, rolling her eyes and smiling apologetically at the woman when Norio interrupts, scattering his money on the table. She waits until the woman has retreated before saying anything other than pleasantries.

Frustrated, Kyra notes down a crude map, closes her book and finally notices the waitress, and that Elisa orders for her. She waits until they're done, and pulls the appropriate amount of money from her purse, plus tip. "Thank you".
Carefully, she puts her book back into the sea sack - today, it won't be of any use.

She, too, waits until the waitress is gone before she moves to different topics than lodging prices and friendly, but content-free pleasantries.

Calziver looks around the table, not wanting to start a conversation himself. He begins to whittle again at the bracelet, making sure to keep the trimmings contained.

Kyra clearly seems to be dreading this conversation, but, after she's sure nobody of the locals are close enough to listen, she quietly starts speaking.

"Okay, let's put together what we have - that legend of Swordswinger John and his sword, Bronce, Hobgoblins and some ancient tales about stars."
She sights, and turns to the bard: "Elisa, could you please try and remember every detail of that legend, especially who Starkweather fought against? Because I know a similar legend of an elven warrior; he fought against Drow. Which is the reason there's still a bounty on Drow heads in elven territories. His name was Thelthon Magnus - maybe you know the story."

Addressing everyone in the group, she continues. "The people here are wary of strangers, and to be honest, I'm equally wary of them. We need to find that sword, and fast - I have no idea what we should remember when we get it, but I hope it's something good. To be honest, I still think it's in the chapel, but we can't go around ripping floor boards out of the town church. Maybe there's a more subtle way to get it, we'll just have to search the church again without the priest."

"What do you think - involve the locals? Ask that Morton person if he knows more? Just wait until night fall and try again?"

Ancil hits upon an idea as Kyra brings up several good points. They ought to involve the locals and they ought to find Morton, but it struck Ancil as unwise to go about asking for a specific person if the locals were also rather suspicious. He nods and agrees with Kyra, "People are never as likely to share information as they are when they're correcting someone, though." He muses, having been subject to that himself as a student several times. When the waitress comes back with drinks in hand, Ancil coughs and begins, "Mistress Jinnie, you're under no obligation to allow it if you think your patrons would find it disruptive, but in addition to paying for our rooms and meals, we have among us an entertainer." Ancil says gesturing to Elisa, almost apologetically "I believe she knows a few local legends, if you'd be interested in her performing after we've eaten....."

Norio is still distracted by the table at the far side of the room, whose inhabitants are getting more cagey in their actions, hiding their words behind mugs and shrugs.

Listening to Kyra, he responds, "I still maintain that if the blade is truly ours, we need not wait for the permission of that boob Father Bronson to claim it. Nor should be be deterred by the rotting floorboards of a crumbling ruin." To the party's great relief, Norio has chosen this moment to speak in an uncharacteristically moderate tone of voice. It's fairly certain that no one heard him much past the nearest few tables. It's not clear if the people nearby heard him or not.

In a strange moment of earnestness (that is, he seems to show some emotion beyond a scowl and a raised eyebrow), he nods at Ancil's suggestion and looks at the party gathered around the table. "Yes. Perhaps you can ingratiate yourselves with the... locals... and clarify our mission at the same time." As soon as he's said this, however, his face goes back to his standard blank, and he resumes staring at the.... locals.
OOCI just realized that Norio has the medieval male equivalent of resting bitch face....
