Luke can be spotted around the Elfsong as of late, with a pile of papers. Some of them neatly hand written, others not so much, some even wine stained. He has meetings with his family, sometimes on or two, sometimes several at a time. Generally in the larger meetings much merriment can be heard.

Marcus has been seen in and around the Gate. Picking up sea charts and weather charts from the great library and checking in at the Merchant League and Commercial Exchange to see if they have any cargo that needs to be moved, and any leads on business or cities that need trade moved by sea.

At what first appears to be a very elaborate and early day tavern crawl, Luke can be seen travelling through the various inns and taverns of Baldur's Gate meeting with various colorful contacts. He is easily overheard that he is helping to facilitate the sale of a very rare and powerful archery belt for a client, one the bard himself speaks in awe of. He leaves his contact at the Elfsong should anyone find any interest through word of mouth.

Its afternoon and Fingal Darius is on his way to Elfsong he got his lute and his bottle of whiskey and a bright smile on his face, his steps seem happy and he is humming a tune while he walks.. He walks by a woman, and tips his hat to her "Hello" he says with a smile to the woman before passing her. Fingal cant help but turn and give her the stare on her behind, he is a young lad after all! "Nice" he says to him self and smiles even bigger!

When he arrives at the Elfsong he talks a bit with the bartender and sits down at a table, he looks around seeing no one there and this saddens Fingal.. "Why is this lovely place empty" he says to him self.. "I know what to do" He says with a smile and finds his lute.. He then starts playing and singing at tavern. The young lad stops from time to time to drink from his bottle of whiskey.. He then stops playing and clears his throat. "To those who may listen" He says "I am Fingal Darius, proud co-owner of Darius Holding Company.. We trade, recover and help YOU find the items you are looking for!" He then takes his bottle and drinks from it smiling!

He again grabs his lute and starts playing and singing..

Would you believe
In a night like this?
A night like this
When visions come true
Would you believe
In a tale like this?
A lay of bliss
We're praising the old lore
Come to the blazing fire and
See me in the Shadows
See me in the Shadows


He grabs his bottle and raises it! "Cheers" He yells and continues his playing!

Songs I will sing
Of runes and rings
Just hand me my harp
And this night
Turns into myth
Nothing seems real
You soon will feel
The World we live in
Is another skald's
Dream in the shadows
Dream in the shadows

He stops his playing to smile to a by-passing woman.

Do you believe
There is sense in it
Is it truth or myth?
They're one in my rhymes
Nobody knows
The meaning behind
The weaver's line
Well nobody else
But the Norns can
See through
The blazing fires of time and
All things will proceed as the
Child of the hallowed
Will speak to you now
See me in the Shadows
See me in the Shadows


He stops singing, and looks at his bottle after grabbing it! "Its empty! A new one please Lady Bartender!

Songs I will sing
Of tribes and kings
The carrion bird
And the hall of the slain
Nothing seems real
You soon will feel
The World we live in
Is another skald's
Dream in the shadows
Dream in the shadows


His eyes goes to another woman that walks past the bar, he cant help but look at her behind with a huge smile!

Do not fear for my reason
There's nothing to hide
How bitter your treason
How bitter the lie
Remember the runes
And remember the light
All I ever want
Is to be at you side
We gladden the raven
Now I will
Run through the blazing fires
That's my choice
Cause things
Shall proceed as foreseen!


Fingal does a dramatic spin and throws his hat into the air and catches it again!

Marcus sits in Darius Holding Company's temporary offices and writes up a few reports, updating inventory and recording sales in the ledger.

"Who knew there would be so much paper work....at least I can drink at work being my own boss" *smiles and he takes a long drink of the dark rum sitting beside him on the desk.

He then records his daily report recording income and where it came from.

Luke would leave word for the Family at their office as well as pass along a note at the Elfsong.
Everyone,

We should arrange a family meeting in the next day or two. Please reach out to me so I know if you can attend and I will let you know where we shall meet. Drinks will be on me of course.

I will have to review my very busy personal schedule and have my people get with your people to work out a place and time suited to my liking (that means any place they serve ale).
