A Mercenary Gamble
Halfling Child Slave
Owned by Joshua
Bought as part of a bulk purchase from the slavers, this slave was kept in the tavern where the party was staying, and looked after by Shirl. Has been threatened with limb mutilation by Joshua unless it starts behaving.
Joshua intends to train and free the children if they can behave long enough, He is playing “Scary Bad Man” so they stay quiet while other, more pressing matters are dealt with.
Traven the bard has spotted an unusual musical talent in this small boy and has bought him. Traven has promised him a 250gp lute and has shown him magic firsthand.
