The man listens attentively to the adventurers, but he doesn't appear to feel threatened. Instead, he takes another sip from his tankard and then briefly looks over his right shoulder. Two more armed men have entered the tavern, after which they split off; one stays by the door while the other walks towards the hallway connecting the tavern to the inn. Rafal decides to speak up.

"Sir–"

His superior silences him with a glare. He then faces the party members and says in Imperial, "If you want peace, then please, sit down." With a gesture of the hand, he invites the adventurers to return to their seats.

Amber worryingly looks at her companions.

"One more enters the tavern, you're first." - Mihai sits back down.

Steve nods at the politeness and sits down.

Ready Action to burn this guy to the max if he does any funny business.

Konrad sits back and quietly waits for the man to begin. Given the gang's cushy terms with the law, they weren't in a position to posture.

Keep Readied Action

"I'm glad to hear it," he replies. He waits for everyone to be seated again before he asks, "So why attack a warehouse?"

The men spread throughout the room are mingling with the other patrons, seemingly disinterested in the party.

"We didn't gauge your men for being the listening type. We understand your folks are quite territorial, to which we can personally attest, after 'testing the water' first."

"That your organization dabbles in human trafficking. For what purpose i don't really care; we're just here to put an end to it."

"To elaborate: people are getting pulled off the streets by addicts. In fact, a young boy was targeted just days ago. We're on our own private investigation, and your man here," he says, nodding to Rafal, "told us about a deal he had going with the Goodman Estate. We were about to head there next, and turn it all upside-down, root and stem."

The Noze boss stares at Rafal and says, "A boy, uh?" Rafal is dead silent and avoids making eye contact with his superior.

The well-dressed man refocuses his attention on the party and says, "Sounds like you could use some help."

"Really? And why would you want to help?" The black mage is genuinely surprised by this turn of events.

Konrad begins to relax, but he does lean in a little to make sure he gets it the first time.

"Call it moral compulsion," he replies facetiously.

Amber frowns and says, "More like you're just covering your ass."

The man smiles briefly at the teenager's bold comment.

"Whatever." - he shrugs - "I doubt we could sneak over a dozen people out of a manor anyway. But until we find them or a fight breaks out, we're not doing this on brawn."

"Whatever the motivation, a compulsion which drives a party to act in my favor is a compulsion I would rather foster." Konrad takes his tankard by the handle again. "What aid are you offering?" he asks before taking another gulp.

The Noze boss brings the tankard to his lips again and then tells them, "We'll make sure no one disturbs you."

Mihai takes a sip of his own for civility's sake, then stands up - "Let's go, then."

Konrad nods. "That would help, certainly. We'd like to get to it as soon as possible, and I'm feeling a little...dry. 'Charging' in 'hot' is only feasible if I have something with which to burn, if you catch my drift. Certainly a powerful underworld empire would have...'raw' reserves to spare."

Diplomacy Modified 20
I want to convince him to provide me with raw magic, or mana charges.

Deception 19
I want to see if he is pretending he wants to help, if he seems to be encouraging us without intending to provide the aid he said he would

The man faces Konrad and says bluntly, "We don't have anything to sell you."

He then answers Steve's question. "I think our conversation is over, yes."

He nevertheless stays seated.

Deception:
 

Konrad gets up, and places a silver on the table. "Very well. You want Rafal back, I assume. Good day."

He will walk when the others have gotten up, pound his drink on the way out, and hand the empty mug off at the bar.
