Marek stands aside and furrows his brows.  Pelor mustn't have touched these people much for they don't seem to have seen the light.

To the man who complained about rationing, "Why in Pelor's name would you think that of us?"

Gosok's gigantic glyph seems to serve it's purpose - it draws peoples attention even though most don't really understand it's meaning at first. The crowd silences and clams... well mostly. Seems *somebody* took the sudden magical sign and stillness of crowd that came with it - as well as probably Isirius' movement - as a warning and started to make his way through the crowd to the tune of "Hey", "Watch it" and "Why is that creep running".

Quote
@LuckyDee - to answer your questions your "hunch" is not yet separated from crowd but will probably be before you make it to him. He has roughly 40 feet of head start on you. And cover probably isn't an issue now, but there wouldn't be much in terms of it anyway, once you leave the assembly the streets are probably going to be pretty empty. Hope that helps.

Quote from: Insight
Marek senses nothing but hatred and malice from Armos - and perhaps some bitter jealousy. Pelor only knows where he got his ideas from but you feel he believes his inane ideas and probably wishes he could get some of adventurer's power... for himself.

While still among the crowd, Isirius tries to make up for the distance by moving as swiftly as the situation allows while making himself somewhat smaller so as to blend in better. If he reaches the end of the crowd before his target is out of sight - around a corner or some such - he will simply try to match his speed; if not he'll take a run towards the spot where he disappeared, taking care to remain unseen until he can have a better look from his new vantage point.

Since the quarry is obviously aware that it's being followed, Isirius tries to engage him telepathically, taking care to ease the thoughts upon him. He presents him with the chance to either explain himself to the warden and villagers, or to Isirius. Sending a mental picture of him standing between Markelhay - not looking amused - and his retinue - looking even less amused - on one side an Isirius with his handsome features and benign smile on the other should illustrate the difference between both options nicely.

Play? Gosok's face begins to twitch. Do they think this is a game?

The kobold had kept out of the debate up to this point, instead more focused on gratefully accepting more size-appropriate cold-weather gear and promptly putting it on, before the adrenalin high wore out and the cold started making itself known again.

"Quill thinks shouty man is being so noisy because he doesn't want to pay others for saving his hide and is trying to guilt Quill's tribe into doing work for free," she commented to the halfling, glaring briefly at Armos. "Quill does not think it will work."

Isirus' is off to a rocky start. Not only does he fail to push through the crowd quickly enough to his liking but he also almost stumbles at the start of his run. He does manage to shorten the distance to the running half-elf but not nearly enough to catch him, and his quarry starts lading him through various side alleys trying to shake pursuit off.

- "See, that's what I meant" - 'shouty man' points at Quill - "Money. It's all you adventurers care about, all you use your powers for. I'm sure this 'ice scepter' would fetch a nice price in that black market you run!"

Quote
Setting Lore: The "black market" Armos is referring to is the main (and often only) place where adventurers tend to spend their gains and buy gear from, known as "The Vault". Nobody really knows who or what runs the Vault but they are one of the few organizations out there capable of dealing and handling the amount of gold items found by adventurers tend to be worth. They deal in buying and selling magic items, as well as paid item storage (they seem to have some sort of extra-dimensional storage they keep closely under the wraps), and occasionally information borkering. They seem to have an outpost in most of established cities, though usually strangely small ones.

"Enough you wretched simpleton!" Gosok's voice booms like a peal of thunder. A strong gust forms around him kicking up flurry of snow and lifting him off the ground ever so slightly "I AM THE WIND! AND I WILL NOT BE MOCKED!" Seething, Gosok bears down on Armos, "WHAT NERVE; THAT YOU WHO FLEES SO READILY FEELS WORTHY TO JUDGE US WHO FACE SUCH PERILS. YOU SPEAK TO ALIIR, MESSENGER OF THE STORM AND YOU- YOU!!!

The sound of the voice booming behind him causes Isirius to wince, albeit really briefly. His focus remains on man in front of him and puts his fate in his speed once he breaks free from the thronged people.

Berak observes Gosok's outburst with great interest.

Marek stays near Berak, waiting to see what happens before jumping in.

Quill leaned on her flail like it was a staff, looking up at the vocal merchant with a cold, toothy grin.

"Quill thinks shouty man made Quill's friend angry. Quill thinks shouty man should apologize. Quickly."

Isirius suddenly realizes he knows this particular area of the city. Deciding to take a gamble he darts into a slightly different alley than his quarry... then into another one... and through someones backyard... and finally over a small wall being the last part of the shortcut and bringing him back on trail of the half elf - only this time much, much closer than before. Capturing the running man now looks much more probable, assuming the kalashtar can keep up the pace.

Aaaand now for an Endurance check. Don't worry this is going somewhere >_>

Meanwhile at the gathering the winds generated by Gosok knock Armos from his feet. Mouthy landowner tries to keep up an illusion of composure, but the attempt is ruined by the way he tries to crawl back, away from Gosok. Several people decide to leg it, not willing to stay and risk wrath of... whatever that floating adventurer is. Even those remaining seem unsettled by sudden gust of wind and Gosok's booming voice. Only Markelhay keeps up a modicum of calm and tries to speak up:
- Mister Gosok?.. Aliir?.. or whatever you want to call yourself. Calm down, please. Armos might be an unrepentant asshole but he's not worth... this. Please, clam down, let me handle this...

Realizing it's going to be all or nothing on this one, Isirius lets his feet do their own thinking and peers past his target, focusing on the next corner he's going to come across. When they're almost there, he goes all-out and launches a sneak attack: when it became clear his telepathic reasoning wasn't going anywhere, he ceased in order to concentrate his energies on the chase. Now, at the last second, he flings the image of tall, burly man - someone he saw in the crowd earlier - stepping around the corner just as the half elf approaches it, hoping to cause him to think that they're going to collide just long enough for him to fall flat on his face.

Isirius finds himself panting and wheezing as he runs - that last fight must've took more out of him than he expected. The distance starts to grow again but the telepathic distraction staggers the half-elf enough to give a chance of catching up.

And yet one more Athletics check please, at a +2 bonus thanks to the telepathic thing.
