As a tribute to our lost comrade we settled on the name “Side Saddle” for our business. Everyone put in the own amount of effort to get the place ready for a grade opening, even though I doubt it would have passed any inspection. One of the potion I had gotten in the under city should turn change my sex to male.* Interestingly enough it did and now I needed to buy some new cloths. The night seemed to be going well. The word got out that a bar tailored for armored men was opening up and we had a good crowd. I was able to entertain with in my new form, which thankfully wasn’t permanent. Cade was our cook for the night and at first we thought he burnt food but later realized that a fire had broken out in the kitchen which expanded to the whisky filled cellar. Fenris and I got everyone out and i did what I could to suffocate the fire. The others battled it from the cellar and eventually won.
Next we needed to find out how the fire started. Since Cade was cooking much of anything we had to look at it being a trap. we had one main suspect but we didn’t know where she was or if it was her. Setter was our best lead. It wasn’t hard to find him but talking with him was. Olan thought threats would be the best way to handle the situation but Tabitha always told me you could catch more flies with honey than vinegar. I always found that true unless you had a swatter big enough and if Setter didn’t start the fire we need information on who did. We were able to make a trade with Setter though. We would get out of his hair for good if he stopped giving the drugs to guards for about a week. Just long enough to make it seem like the problem was solved and the thane would let us leave Orland.* He agreed reluctantly. we all slept with a dagger under our pillows that night.
