Neither of the competing thieves' guilds is pleased that The Rustoleii humbled them as they have. They are also neither stupid nor forgiving. Assassination is the next problem the group is about to face and the wizard is the assassin's first target. The killer will tail the group at a distance from the inn throughout the city until an opportunity presents itself; a distraction, separation, or some situation where the assassin can quickly move in and strike. She'll be patient, gauging Tktk's skills to the point that an attempt may not occur the first or even the second day.

The other thieves' guild takes another course of action. They try to setup up the group to take the fall for a crime. Initially, they try and get the constabulary to investigate the murders in the street from the previous night, but someone has mysteriously disposed of the dead bodies; leaving no evidence of the battle. They run a shill, attempting to implicate Tktk in a theft, but this will prove challenging, but they will be patient just as the assassin will be.

In the meantime, the group has things to sell and possibly stuff to buy before they depart for Ithil'Quessir again.
