4th of Eleasis  1491 DR

Glyncairn attempts to pick the lock on the door... and nearly breaks his lockpicks. He takes a few minutes  to ponder the error of his ways, and tries again, despite the increased challenge is successfully.

Brannir then casts pass without trace, then looks through the keyhole and misty steps out. He finds himself outside of the door, in the hold. Turning quietly, he sees a sailor, sitting on a stool, using a dagger to clean the dirt from under his fingernails. The spell appears to be hiding Brannir from the sailor. The hold has netting, rope webbing, and numerous cargo crates; effectively moderately crowded. Nearby is a latter up to the deck. There is a kinda maze through the cargo and so forth.

Brannir flicks a pair of coins into the hold. The sailor looks up, spins his knife in his hands to hold it by the blade, leans forward to one knee, and mumbles something about "damn rats." No focused out into the hold.

Brannir grabs the dagger and throws it into the hold, then realizing the he just broke his obscurement as the pirate sees him, yelling, "they are out.", and poorly attempts to tackle the ranger. Brannir grabs the bar off the door and pummels the pirate into unconsciousness, careful not kill him. He then pauses and listens and the party quietly makes their way out of the room. No sounds of alarm are heard.

They pull the pirate into the room and bar the door. The party then heads up the ladder: Kuartz goes first, followed by Brannir, Eron, then Glycairn. They space out 5' between each, Kuartz heading for the plank. Eron reaches the top of the ladder, making a little noise, stopping momentarily, but does not see that anyone noticed. Glyncairn gets deck, slides through a freshly mopped area, sure that he has been heard, but keeps moving and realizes that no appears to have heard him.

Somehow, by the grace of Tymora, the party makes it off the ship, onto the pier and away. As the hurry down the pier, magically obscured, Glycairn notices the first mate and pair of sailors exiting pier and turning down the wharf. Glycairn uses message to alert the party members.

The party follows, moving close to building, to try and stay in the shadows. The follow the trio who return to the Angry Coxswain. Glycairn proceeds into the tavern. He sees the first mate talking to a woman, looking over a scroll. Glycairn hears the first mate mention making delivery before morning. She tells no, the first will be at the wharf in an hour.

The party pulls back and waits. An hour later a cart arrives and the first mate leads a number of crew who drop crates into the cart. Then a pair of men take the cart and begin to head out.

Glycairn and Samwise, the fey is invisible. Samwise flies over the wagon, about 25' up. Glycairn tails the cart, about 25' back. Brannir follows Glycairn another 25-30 feet. Kuartz is another 25-30' back and Eron yet another 25-30'. Brannir notices that a pair of human men appear to be tailing the wagon, between him and Glycairn.

The cart makes several turns before turning into an alley. As Brannir turns the corner, he sees one of the men charging Glycairn with a club. Glyncairn is faster, whipping out his rapier and stabbing the man... who then steps back and begins to yell for the watch. Brannir echos the call. Kuartz catches up and attempts to press through the alley while communicating with Samwise. Samwise tells her the two men with the wagon are talking about the fact they were being followed. She tells him to stay with the wagon. In the alley, the second man blocks Kuartz from passing, ignoring her sob story about trying to get to her friend. Eron makes it to Brannir, shaking his head at the scene this has become. The first man and Brannir continue to call for the watch and a block or two away, watch whistles can indeed be heard. Eron asks, "where is the cart?"
