Getting the Bauble Back

 

Getting the Bauble Back:
A Simple Stealth Module for Draconis
by
Dave Davis
It is nighttime, misty and dark. The Violet Thorn is busy
with customers.
A hooded person enters, orders a drink, and asks if
Aloysius is nearby.
BARKEEP
“Why yes, he’s right over there.”
The Barkeep points to the table where Aloysius is sitting,
enjoying a drink with his friends.
HOODED WOMAN
“Thank you, good sir.”
HOODED PERSON drops a few coins on the bar, then walks
quietly over to Aloysius’s table and coughs into her hand,
apparently in order to get his attention without attracting
that of others in the tavern.
HOODED WOMAN (CONT’D)
“Might I ask for private word with
you, Aloysius?”
Aloysius looks the Hooded Person up and down.
ALOYSIUS
“Very well, I’ll back in a moment
then.”
Together they walk into a private room. About a minute
later, Aloysius exits the room and returns to his table,
while the Hooded Person leaves by the front door.
ALOYSIUS (CONT’D)
(He lowers his voice)
“Well, my friends. It seems we
have an opportunity to make a
little coin at minimal risk. IF we
act fast. Would you like to hear
more about it?”
“Well, that lady, hmmph, is an old
colleague of mine from an earlier
part of my career.
LATER: THEY MEET
THE HOODED WOMAN AT
THE PREARRANGED
LOCATION:
ALOYSIUS (CONT’D)
(In a low voice)
“Brynne, We’re here.”
