    Viswanat departs the bar, his stride stiff with his wound. Turning to his companions, he says, "I unfortunately do not have the thrones most likely required by this chiurgeon; could one of you spare the coin? I also suggest we pair up in case those gangers decide they want restitution. Where are we to meet this preacher?"

    Boaz hands Viswanat a stack of 20 thrones. "Use what you need for now and the rest for later."


    He snaps a quick point towards the noisy Break Room. "Behind that hall, within two hours from now is when we will be there. With the Emperor's blessing we should get actual information from him."

    Viswanat nods in acknowledgement, then he and Parthus depart, following the bartender's directions. Easily finding the building with the green light, the two approach the entrance.

    The eye looks you up and down, and you hear a strange sound, almost like someone snorting - but much louder and longer than you would think humanly possible.

    "Came fr'm Scribe?" the deep voice says. "Yeh, you fine then." You hear the sound of bolts and locks being drawn back, and the door swings open for you.

    The Ogryn folds his face up in what you guess is a smile, and he lets out a rumbling chuckle. "Huh huh huh! I jus' make sure th' doc dun need a doc." He winks, obviously pleased with his play on words.

    There is a hiss of static and you hear the distinctive metallic rasp of a vocoder box behind you. "I'm the one who'll mend your bones and stitch your wounds, stranger," the voice says. You turn and see a small, wizened old man with a pair of biotic eyes and a vocoder box in his throat. "It's best if we keep our names to ourselves, yes?" he says. "Just tell me what needs fixing and I'll see what I can do."

    Viswanat removes his robe and flak coat, the dark red gash in his side clearly visible. "I was stabbed here, and while the pain is not insignificant, I do not believe it to be serious. Still, 'Tend diligently to even the smallest maintenance, lest the Machine Spirit punish with greater malfunction.'"

    The old chiurgeon regards you for a moment, his biotic eyes unable to betray whatever emotions he was feeling. Then he beckons you with his left hand. "Yes, it missed anything vital. Come, I'll have it shut for you in no time. Your friend," he indicates to Parthus. "Will have to wait here with Silly."

    "Do not worry, Parthus; I am sure this will not take long." Viswanat hangs up his robe and coat and follows the elder's lead.

    The chirugeon motions for Viswanat to sit in one of three medicae patient chairs in the room, the one closest to the door you just came through. He shuts the door and recites a litany of sterilization before cleaning the wound in your side and stitching it together.

    "The wound was more painful than it was deadly," he says while winding some gauze around your chest to protect the stitches. "It should heal within a few days, God-Emperor willing." He ties off the gauze and recites a prayer of recovery, making the sign of the aquila over your body.

    "Twenty-five thrones is my fee, young sir."

    "You have my thanks, as well as your thrones." Viswanat hands over the chiurgeon's fee before redonning his clothes and armor. Gesturing to Parthus, the two make their way towards the exit.

    "If you should have the misfortune of becoming injured again, please feel free to call upon us," the chiurgeon says as you leave.

    Viswanat and Parthus leave the clandestine chiurgeon and go to meet Boaz and Paba near The Break Room.

    Paba and Boaz found a willing seller of some heavy-duty rope suitable for use on their journey through the ruined part of the hive, as well as purchasing some fasteners and a couple cheap hammers to help them keep the rope in place. They also managed to procure four sets of work gloves to protect their hands from rope burn.

    Cain should be meeting you all behind the bar any time now.

    ((You now have enough rope to last you through your journey into the collapsed area of the hive as well as the aforementioned supplies - as far as cutting the rope, your bladed weapons should more than suffice. Deduct 40 thrones for expenses. Let me know if you also want to have procured a lascutter or grapnel - those would cost 60 and 30 thrones, respectively.))

    Boaz's chronometer signals that two hours had passed, and shortly after you can see Cain shuffle around the corner. He walks oddly, in small, quick steps that don't seem very efficient, but his loose robes obscure what sort of deformity or prosthetic might cause him to move that way.

    He comes to a stop in front of Boaz, eying the gear he and Paba were carrying. "You decided to bring some rope along - good," he says. "You have a grapnel?"

    He snorts when Boaz looks at him blankly. "No grapnel? Fine, I suppose I can rent you one... Okay, down to business then. You want me to take you to the Librium - I don't know or care to know your reasons for wanting to go. Asking questions just gets me more involved. We just work together to get there and back, then we go our separate ways. Price is... 80 thrones. Plus 30 for the grapnel rental."

    "And why not stay even less involved and thus chart a route to the Librum? I have reservations bringing you along," Boaz interjects.

    "A lascutter? Hmm..." Cain thinks for a moment. "Well, I don't have one, but if you wish to purchase one, I might know someone. I suppose I can stop there before we descend."

    "Heh, there's any number of beasts make their home in those ruins. Don't pay them any mind and they won't bother you, usually."

    "I'm wary about you, preacher, because of the timing of your request, and because you were not referred to me by my usual channels. Normally I would have little reservation about guiding people in the ruins, because they have been sent to me by those I trust.

    As for making a map... such a thing would not be possible. It would be difficult enough to chart a route using landmarks easy enough to be recognized by outsiders, but the nature of the place means that sometimes a path you take one week may be gone another. And in any case, making maps is contrary to my vocation. Only tourists need a guide when maps are available."

    At the lift, Cain seems to materialize in front of you, having approached unnoticed through the milling crowd.

    "I've got a grapnel and lascutter," he says, leaning close so as to not be overheard. "On top of my fee, that comes out to 160 thrones. And you get to keep the lascutter, even."

    A large bell sounds, signaling the arrival of the lift. People begin to file in, but it's obvious Cain won't be getting on board until he's been paid.
