Tin Tankard will sponsor the event, 100k to whomever kills Kallista and throws her into Blackrock Prison.

Ramana had finally decided to go ahead and post the flyer for her wilderness guide business, on the bulletin boards of the Trade and Tackel and the Landing Inn.

She had debated for some time, as she had wanted to get the Feywood matter resolved. But she couldn't wait any longer, and decided that she would just have to tell any client that wanted her to guide them to or through there that there was presently a misunderstanding that was in the process of being resolved. That's what it was, really. It didn't profit her for Feywood and her to be antagonistic, and knowing what she knew now that she hadn't known way back then, she wouldn't do what she had done that made those elves believe that she was dangerous to them.

What had Riggs and Ash been thinking when they had passed her name on to this Nimali lady? She didn't need this now, this kind of offer. Not when she had to keep herself looking very pristine, her associations spotless for the scrutiny of the Feywood Council. It would have been more discreet of them to have simply told her about this person's offer, and let her respond if she were interested. Well, she had rebuffed the proposition, and had just received a courteous reply back from the woman, apologizing for any misunderstandings. So probably nothing would come of it.

So if this lady was asking around about the brothel business, more than likely she wanted to be the one in charge. Be the madam probably. If Ramana were actually close to making a brothel business, an idea she had mentioned a while back to Riggs, Ramana would be the one in charge. She wouldn't be just a girl under someone's thumb. Ramana would not be working for anyone else. She wasn't going to show her ledgers to anyone. She had always been freelance, and now more than ever, freelancing seemed the best way. Never working for any other that would have only their own interest in mind. Even an equitable partnership would have to be with someone she trusted implicitly, and right now the only person who qualified in that was Will.

This lady would either have to create a business from scratch, or move in on someone else's territory. Actually even just the act of creating a new brothel would still be moving in on the territory of the Laiden Swallow. And in Ramana's opinion that was a venture more than likely destined to end with the besmirching of everyone involved and the pissing-off of the powers that be. The Laiden and her Madam had friends, and they were quite powerful. She had a girlfriend on the inside that had told her all about that. Even Riggs wasn't foolish enough to try to compete with the Laiden. If Ramana were to instruct the hospitality staff of Riggs' club in the ways of class and charm and amiability, as he had asked her to, it was likely she wouldn't be instructing them in anything more than entertaining innuendo.

But in any case, now was not the time to venture into a potentially controversial business. Controversial not only because some thought the business of pleasure was a vice, but also because of the entrenched territories. For now she was just a wilderness guide, a respectable businesswoman, showing adventurers and fearful visitors around the Island, and doing the odd task here and there for the locals. Establishing her reputation as a ranger. She was satisfied for now to have the business she had, and would continue to network and pursue safe and quiet ventures for the time being.

Krin walked past the gates into the Feywood Stronghold, smiling and greeting the scouts, druids, and passersby he met along the way. He made his way to the council chamber, pausing in one of the small rooms to don his Tel'Varataurie robe.

Upon entering the chamber, he climbed the steps and stopped in front of the Council itself. Bowing to each as they acknowledged his presence, he waited until he could speak. "Good morning to you all. I hope this day finds you well," he smiled.

"I come here this day to relay a message, and request. A young elven female by the name of Ramana asks for an audience with you. She is currently barred from entering the woods. Early in her time on the island, she fell in with those who serve Syann. She claims to have been manipulated into commiting acts against Feywood, including an attack on those elves posted in Steinkreis. Such attack was thankfully unsuccessful. She says she regrets this, and wishes to make amends, her ways apparently having been changed. She currently employs herself as a wilderness guide and would like to be welcome as such in Feywood. Therefore, she would like to speak with the council and plead her case."

"I have asked someone highly placed in Steinkreis to investigate the attack in question as well, and will ask those of the Tel'Varataurie what they know of Ramana. As for her request, I leave it in the council's capable hands to see if it is to be granted or not." He bowed his head to each and waited for their comments or questions.

Lady Syrrisia gave Krin a long considering look whilst she formulated her response. "Before the Council will consider meeting the woman, the full report of her actions would need to be seen and reviewed. As well as that, has she taken any actions to illustrate her regret at her previous misdemenours? Anyway can speak words, actions are for more meaningful.

If you can provide the report we will consider her request further."

Krin bows his head to Lady Syrrisia.

"It shall be so mylady. I will inquire with my contacts and get the information required in this."

Krin inclined his head to each once more, and made his way out of the council chambers... back to the woods. He wondered if Celia had gotten her hands on the report he had asked her for. Others would be consulted as well...

Business had been good for Ramana lately. Several investigations, courier assignments, expedition guidings, and even an exercise of her long-unused pickpocketing skills in stealthily retrieving some objects deep in the Iron Clan goblin warrens.

Not to mention the Fashion Show, and how that had given her some dressmaking business, a nice creative alternative to her usual endeavors. Winning an award had made her name known as a designer, and several clients had made appointments with her.

She hoped that the people who attended the Fashion Show would have forgotten that embarrassing incident where Ramana had had to run away from one of the merchants. Elixora, who apparently was of Feywood, had impetuously thrown something at her when Ramana had first walked out onto the stage at the Fashion Show. Fortunately Ramana had had the presence of mind to not reflexively run for her bow and fire back at her attacker before she determined who it was. At the plea of the promoters the merchant had then calmed down, for the sake of the show going on. Later, Ramana had cautiously approached the perturbed elf lady, who had glared at her silently as Ramana tried to smooth things over by apologizing for the misunderstanding between Ramana and the Feywood people. Elixora had even sold her a couple of pots of dye, although not deigning to say any word but merely pointing at a price tag, stiffly accepting her gold as if she suspected it was contaminated.

Ramana hoped that the Feywood matter could be resolved soon, and that she could be known in Feywood for her ranger skills, or even her dressmaking talents, and not infamously as an enemy of the people and a potential killer of elves. Since she had every intention to refrain from annoying them in the future, she hoped they could have some forgiveness and let bygones be bygone. She didn't know if that ranger Krin had made any headway with his guild the Tel'Varataurie or the Feywood Council yet, but she anxiously awaited some word back.

Krin had asked her to look into the actions and information about this 'Ramana'. She didn't think much of it, not a name she knew so not one she felt needed much concern. Still, Krin did want the info, so she sent her feelers out to see what could be found. A little surprised at just how much info was discovered she put the report together to be handed to Krin.She highlighted the fact that she had been involved with Syann, in Celia's mind that was reason enough to be suspicious of her, but it looked like she was trying to turn herself around.

Celia's report (( SPOILERS WARNING ))

Feywood:

A few years ago, a then relatively unknown elf girl, who was posthumously identified only as Ramana, came into the Steinkreis observation post, and because she was bearing Kaempfer's seal, was allowed to walk around and observe the operations. When only the Captain and one other of the guard were alone in a room, she declared she had come to kill the Captain by order of the Syann, and launched an attack. They were able to quickly overpower her, and slew her on the spot. Of course by the magic of the Stones she was resurrected, but she has been banned from Feywood lands since. As far as known, there have been no further incidents between this girl and the Feywood.

Northlands:

Miss Ramana has visited the Village for many years, and is generally known as a pleasant if reserved lady. She is well-known to the merchants, especially being a frequent customer of Christina at the dress shop. She is also known to the guards as a capable ranger and swordswoman, having been known to aid them with repelling the giants. Recently she has been tasked by Lady Arianna with investigating the dangerous Craggen Island.

Hamley:

Ramana the ranger has helped out several times with Hamley's incessant spider problem, having investigated the source of the problem, and many times culled the unnatural profusion of spiders. She also returned the remains of one of the guards she went searching for, to some small comfort of the family at resolution of the fate of their missing husband and father. Her efforts seem to have been much appreciated.

Steinkreis:

Just recently Ramana helped the Lord's mages with securing a riftstone for their continuing research. Her loveliness and her polite grace in front of the lord's court was remarked upon, one saying that she seemed almost high-born, and making it hard to believe that she could have even done what she is reported to have done those many years ago.

Hammersong:

The elven scout Ramana Domefarar has done a few tasks for the Prince, starting with bringing Hammersong a riftstone for the investigations into that matter, and also helping with the recurrent problems in the Underhalls. She apparently went down alone to find a lost patrol, and surprised some by coming back with some of their remains and hardly a scratch, causing them to comment that 'the wee frail lass is stronger and more capable than she looks'!

Greenvale:

Ramana Domefarar is fairly well-known in the city of Elisara, seeming to reside much of the time there. She has been heard to speak often of her love of the elven city. The Guard has found her most helpful in keeping the Razorfang bandits from the gates, and she had also helped them monitor the Poisonwood situation.

Southern Empyrean Guard:

The ranger Ramana Domefarar has regularly helped the Empyrean with the Razorfangs and has sometimes shared the evening fire with them. They say she seems friendly, although reserved at times.

Davenshire:

Ramana Domefarar has been a friend to Davenshire. She has often patrolled the ridgeshield and the road with the militia against the bandits, and cleared the undead from the roads through the Moribund bog. Recently she helped them with an infestation of Stingers, having culled them several times and reported her findings.

Generally:

Has a reputation as a Ranger, Wilderness Guide, and does various odd tasks for the locals. Just recently won a dressmaking contest in Steinkreis, and seems to do a little of that on the side. She does not have any other known offenses against anyone. She has been seen to stop at the Raven's Watch fire and visit the shops in Raven's Watch. She has been seen at the Laiden Swallow, seeming to be friends with one of the girls there. One informant there mentioned that a few years back-- about right after her crime against Feywood it seems, from coordinating the dates-- she made a loud scene in the main room with a man named Rederik (a suspected Syann agent), apparently very angry and upset, throwing some armor at his feet and stomping out. Miss Domefarar is not known to have had any contact with the Syann more recently than that.

Krin took the report Celia left for him, and appended what he had received as reply from those of the Tel'Varataurie. Two had replied to his inquiry. Willow had no knowledge of Ramana, and had simply advised caution. Styvn however had traveled with her a few times, and made some positive observations on her character.

He too advised caution however, and that Ramana should be observed, even were she allowed to enter the woods, and suggested that whatever rights Ramana was given be done so on a probationary manner.

With all this in hand, Krin once again returned to the Council chambers, and presented the lady Syrissia with the reports. He took his leave, allowing them to peruse the documents at their leisure.

Ramana snuck east around the Feywood stockade and the patrols to get into northern Feywood. Fortunately once she got there, there were no patrols to bother her. The animals didn't know anything about Feywood's issue with her, and so she started to relax. Not like the last time she'd been here, with Will, when she'd gotten uncustomarily frightened that she was going to be hunted down and slain by the patrols.

She had hoped to see Iq'nok. He had invited her to come up there, and although she had been initially hesitant, she was here now. She'd decided to try to get more notice from Feywood, and the only thing she could immediately think of to do, that would show her good intentions, was to help them with their gnoll problem. Iq'nok also wanted to make a good impression on the Council, so she thought they could cooperate on finding ways to do so. But he wasn't around this time.

She scouted the area out completely, and set up her camp in an enclosed western grotto, with only one entrance, and far from the gnoll trails, which were obvious to be seen running from the northern access. She had been up north further before, and she would go up there after a while and nip at their heels, so to speak. Not going to try to slay the whole gnoll encampment herself, but to create a gnoll-free zone between their main camps and Feywood.
