Sitting in the corner was a Blood Hunter named Conri Macsage. After speaking with Sariel He also decided to join the guild. With an adventuring band formed they decided to get properly geared up and Roam and Rio went shopped and Roam picked up a long sword with the aid of Boatmurdered as thanks for saving his ship.
