Chase's dectection goes off and you are made aware of all of the ships.  There are 30 Yellowian military vessels; 11 merchant ships from other nations, 8 Yellowian merchant ships, too many to care and count riverboats.

The shipping lane you travel on is sparse during your week voyage.  By this time of year, all of the food has been shipped and its getting dark for most of the day (less than six hours of light a day during the trip).

As mentioned, Newporton is a population small city of only 40,000.  It is spread out over many miles of river in the Astarian Delta.

Your ship lays anchor and you are taken by row boat or barge to the city.

Samuel Mist is a cleric of Lakius and an Admiral in the Yellowian Navy.  He is stationed in Newporton, as you are told by the high cleric.

He is a human is his 50's.  It is known he can control weather.

I plan to go visit and tell him of my mission and wait.for.his response before taking the next steps on my mission.  Also do I know where he stands on the direction of Lakius' Faith.  I would imagine he is in then middle somewhere but does he lean in one direction.

Strangely, Taiji does not try to force himself on the away team in Newporton. He is pretty adamant about staying behind with the Guardian to assess and repair any damage done to her while she was aggressively moored for over a month.

Wignston helps Taiji for a bit.  I am sure nothing really affected the ship but he does go around mending with the spell anything small enough on the ship that needs minor repairs.  He has done this through out his time on the ship.

Conversly, the Vass and the fey all are looking to get off at the city.  Yellowia is far afield from any place else you have stopped; they are known to be nature / fey friendly, and they obviously have lots of Vass here...as well as Gatori.

Wignston does go into city as well.

Of the stops on the tour so far, Newporton is the least interesting to him.  It is small, has a low level of technology, is not very old, and does not have lots of magic (either divine or arcane).  Additionally, there aren't many gnomes and there is a lot of mud that goes above your knee.

Would it be odd if Chase and Grognoth went into town?  I don't want to cause a panic or arouse suspicion.  If nothing else, Chase will at least collect a stone or something from here, as he's done in every place we've ever been.

The Yellowians are not generally fond of drow, but it is also unlikely anyone would look too closely through a simple disguise.  A Frost Giant would be odd, but no one thinks the Yellowians would attack or arrest you.

No problem.  Chase will go as a Common Human and Grognoth will simply go and be peaceful.  He'll spread the good word of Stasis to anyone who'll listen.  If there's any type of festival or fair going on, he'll volunteer to perform feats of strength or put on a martial arts demonstration for the kids.
