    "They may be sub-drow but they still gotta little golde and junk... cattle... weapons..." Neit just looked annoyed, and rolled the cigar through her fingers as she spoke. "Or hummies themselves. Ya know they actually put the males in charge? So it's no wondere even the big half-pretty womens aren't too harde ta push arounde. Taldi coulde even buy 'em offe us, or give 'em a good bit of teachin', eh?"

    "Ya fancy spendin' a bit of cash on gobbie weapons then?"

    "Hm I'm startin' to like this idea. Humans don't deserve to have such nice things as gold and food." Alsiif strummed her claws on the table. "But neither do those slimy goblins... and actually BUYING weapons for those things... Uhg... maybe if they were our slaves it'd be better..."

    Alsiif swigged down the drink(???), threw the glass across the room, then slumped over on the table. "Alright... lets do it..." She immediately dozed off and started snoring.

    "S'either we give 'em money and they spende ite all on booze and drugs, like the liddle slobs they are, or we give 'em swords and axes and crap to make sure they attacke stuffe." Neit was pleased by Alsiif's enthusiasm, enough to poor the demony woman a whisky. "S'not like Drow deals through. No worries. Ife we don't like the head guy, can always cut 'em into tiny wee bits for shits and giggles. Id'll be fun!"

    "Nobody says we can'te sneak a few magic explody stuffe in there too, and not tell 'em." Suddenly, she started adding all kinds of new spirits, juices and narcotics to the mix. Maybe she was making a cool new cocktail, or maybe she just got bored. Who knows. "Or finde the moste ugly, petty, sadistic liddle slut of the lot and put 'em in charge. It'll be like practice for proper parenting, no worries!"

    ///

    Neit first and foremost left a note with Taldi since she had no idea how long the grovy wench would be in town. Basically she just told her that she could crash at the mansion anytime, and that if she wanted a prezuntz, she'd stick around more.

    After that, Neit took far too long weapons shopping. It wasn't because she was trying to find weapons that were uniform; they weren't. She went to about twenty differant gladiator weapon saleswomen and slowly built up a pile of weirdly arcane maces, sickles, spears and shortbows, all unique and dainty in a sort of cruel and twisted way.

    In other words, she was intent on arming those gobos as if they were her very own little hummie-stabbers.

    A single magical human-bane spear was the iccing on the cake, amusingly small in her hands, like a rather vicious black-metal walking stick or sceptre. If she liked the boss, maybe she'd actually give it to them instead of just murderin' 'em to prove a point. Or choosing somebody who was slightly more sexy and slightly less freakish.

    The spear cost 2000GP, the ten shortbows cost 300 GP (+10 GP for 200 arrows), ten light maces cost 50GP, ten spears cost 20GP, and ten sickles cost 60GP. That's 4420GP spent in total.

    ///

    They borrowed Ryyna's troll to carry the goods, and brought Huzhke along for use as a psionic sniffer dog. Of course only the latter could ride with Neit on her lizard, but there wasn't much of a rush anyway. Half of this whole thing was a personal scouting mission, and rushing along might well just have made them miss out on a possible earlier encounter with a Gobbo gang anyhow.

    Other than that prospect, through, they just took the fastest tunnel route down from Yanthinser, and followed the route laid out by some information she had personally nitpicked, downwards towards the western cave wall, seeking some less obvious (and probally more meagerly funded) tommyknockers near the pittiful hummie settlement of Fort Ioanns...

    The trip towards the small Goblin camp was uneventful. There were a few times the group spotted torches in the distance, clearly people on the move, but not wanting to get delayed dealing with patrolling Humans or whatever, they simply avoided them. Without torches themselves, it's not like the duo of Drow could really be spotted by the hideous little paleskins, anyway.

    ***

    Eventually the group reached the camp. Well, rather, reached the point where they could see the campfires but, seeing as how they were well out of range of the firelight, presumably could not be seen themselves by the Gobbies.

    From what the group could tell, there were about five campfires, and a number of small, crudely made tents. It was very much a temporary sort of campsite, probably made so the filthy little greenskins could rest up without fear of cave wolves, or whatever, on their way back to their lair.
    Grody little things.

    Now what?

    Neit caught Huzhke blankly staring off into the distance, and gave he a light shove against the back.

    After looking a little indignant for a moment, the minuscule chitine then raised it's four frumpy little arms to it's temples, and attempted to concentrate really quite hard on something. Her wide red eyes narrowed down to a knife slit, but were still watching the world, as if through a drugged, entranced state...

    SPOILER! :
    Huzhke used Clairvoyant Sense.

    It's basically scrying for noobs. She can only use it on obvious locations.

    What's going on inside the tent at the very center of the camp?

    Update: Kodos told the regs what was going on inside doez tentz.

    "...Achz... ya fudygth ga-" Huzhke nervously uttered out, still half consumed by a daze, only to quickly be slapped over the back of the head by Neit's short fuse.

    "Speake in Drow. You're not a childe."

    "...Idz... Idz a gwoblin..." It continued after a second, covering her head and still fearful of being chided again. It's voice sounded softly rasping and pithy, practically chewing her own tongue trying to manage words in their language. "In tendnz mauybe... furdy... fourdy... Greenish, deffnilly gwobboss..."

    "Conditione. They armede?" Neit was full of impatience, and pressurised it a bit more by taking the top pair of the gangly spider-thing's hands above it's head, and rubbing her thumbs into the palms. "Conditione? -Con-di-ti-one?- Any recognisable bossese?... Com' on, you little defecte..."

    "Dey lookan feed. Dey lookan feed. Donn know if a boss." Huzhke squirmed some more, covering it's eyes with still-free hands in order to force herself to concentrate. "Yeh, furdy or fourdy, for deffnatt, mhissh-triss... None seeing boss... I don' thenk ish boss... weapunsh no bad..."

    Neit faced Alsiif now, abiett still playing with and tugging at the thing's squishy hands. "So, Goblins. Thirty or fourty. Well fed at leaste." She relayed. "Probally no boss arounde. Mighte juste be a temporary camp, I guess?..."

    "Ahn wooves. Woouwves. Swahdualhe woouhlvez." Huzhke looked like she expected the extra information to stop Neit, getting into a nervous fuss about being the plaything of her attention still.

    "Ande they have ridin' wolves." Neit just smiled and parroted what she said to Alsiif instead, and then kept doing it. "You wanna smashe in dere and show 'em whoz the reale boss, or play it smoothe and then scare the crap out of 'ehm when they leaste expecte ite? (¬‿¬)"

    Alsiif looked like she was going to throw up. Maybe it was the stanky goblin smell, or maybe it was that concotion she drank earlier. "Err... lets just do whichever gets us outta here faster."

    "Well, let's go thene!" Neit unseathed her rapier and signed out some kind of protection spell against her chest, then began super-eagerly moving into action. Huzhke took a minute to mime the same action, and managed to blunder together the same spell, only with about fourty times more effort.

    "...erm..." The crowish woman paused suddenly, looking Alsiif up and down with a vicious grin plastered across her face. The end of her sword made for a nice nail picking tool. "You didn't wante an antidote potion or somethin' before we starte, didja?"

    Alsiif pinched her nose shut and waved the other hand dismissively at Neitar. "No.. naw, let's jus get on with it!"

    The moment the group got within visual range, the Goblin camp went up into a panic, as the little green dudes and dudettes scrambles for their weapons, their mounts, and/or just to hide. Eventually a group of five of the more heavily armed Goblins, riding atop cave wolves, rode out to meet the group, accompanied by eight heavily armored (albeit in ill-fitting Human armor modified to fit their frames) Goblins on foot. The lead, a female, addressed the group in accented but otherwise clear Undercommon.

    "There are more of us than you. You won't be able to take slaves, and our wolves can ride off with the choice loot faster than you can try and run off with it. Turn around now."
