"Of course." The gnome nods her head and sits down, glancing at her "This is a place of peace and serenity. Your safe." She smiles, and turns her head and closing her eyes. Her hands go to the pendent after she sits down before the main worship area. Pike goes silent.

The sound of rain keeps coming down, seeming to not want to stop. A boom comes from above anda brief flash comes from below a window. Still the gnome doesn't move.

Ayer a while, once all bullets have been checked to be dry and so are the documents, Talitha puts everything back in its place. She takes the leather armour off, so she wears only a while linen shirt and a pair of robust trousers (and her pistol). She carefully leaves the armour dry by her side and she wraps herself in the blanket, sitting in a corner of the room.
After a few minutes she falls asleep.

Time passes.

Tal's leather seems to have been cleaned as well as her boots. They are placed by a pew, visible. A pillow and two blankets have been placed over her for warmth. Her pack is near her where she put it down. Its hard to tell what time it is but a dripping sound can be heard above. Her blanket is near her armor, folded up. The room is darker now, some of the candles have been extinguished. Its quiet besides the rain drops. No one seems to be in the room but its hard to tell because of the lesser light.

Talitha does not question here luck right now. She'll thank the gnome lady in the morning. She gathers her stuff around her and wraps herself in the blankets and keeps sleeping until sunrise.

The rain starts to come down again, the sound above coming down harder but at least the gunslinger is warm and safe as she tries to sleep. But then something seems to be banging on one of the windows.

Whack. Whack. Whack. Whack. Whack.


From where Tal is attemping to sleep once more its hard to tell if its coming from outside or within the small temple.

Make a Intelligence Check. You can also make a Perception check as well.

It keeps making the same sound and doesn't stop. The rain is pouring down.

"Maybe it's an open window making noise with the wind." Talitha thinks. She stands up bothered by not being able to keep sleeping.
She stands up and she realises she was feeling cold so she puts on her armour. She is carrying her pistol (never took it off) and tries to locate the source of the sound.
Her bag has everything packed in it as she did before falling asleep.

The sound continues as the gunslinger stands up and puts on her armor. And the rain keeps coming down. There is little light as she looks around the area, moving slowly into the main temple.

Once she locates the origin of the sound she moves quietly in that direction. She tries to be stealthy. She doesn't know if there is more people sleeping here and she didn't want to wake them up.

OoC: not my day being perceptive.

The woman doesn't spot anything, possibly from the low light. SHe doesn't spot anyone else in the temple.

Whack whack whack.

It keeps continuing.

Talitha will move stealthily towards the source of the noise, trying not to make any noise and conscious of her movements. She walks slowly,so she doesn't stumbles into anything by mistake in the middle of the might.

Tal doesn't stumble and tries to find out where the sound is coming from but she doesn't find it. The gunslinger looks all around and the sound keeps coming. It does come from the right side and she takes a deep breath.

Talitha focuses on the sound. Now she's annoyed by the sound and probably won't be able to go back to sleep until she shouts it. She still things it's an old opened window or something of that kind.
She moves silently towards the right side following the sound.

After checking the windows, she find one of the shutters slamming against the window and frame. Easily she can get the window open and pull it closed, snapping it into place. The woman closes the window. She does realize its dark outside, hard to tell how long she was asleep.

One of the doors opens and in walks the gnome. Yawning and wiping the sleep from her eyes, she looks around and spots Tal "Oh hello. Your up? Thought I heard something. You okay?" She moves towards the gunslinger and yawns again. Pike is dressed in a simple white sleeping gown, and no boots. Her hair is slightly tussled and she sniffs.

EDITED
Talitha turns to the gnome and speaks quietly.
"Sorry I didn't mean to wake you up. A noise woke me up and I couldn't go back to bed. I think it was a problem with a shutter in a window or something like this. I think I managed to solve it."
She stays silent, listening if the noise repeats again. It doesn't.
"Sorry again for waking you up. I'll go back to bed."
Talitha walks back to where she was and goes back to sleep for a few more hours.

07:04, Today: Talitha Deschain rolled 21 using 1d20+7. Perception. [roll=1601273051.0897.347974]

"It is alright. Would you want to talk? Your new here right?" Pike sits down by the alter, lighting a few candles. She places her hands on her lap as she watches the stature of Sarenrae for a moment. The gnome turns and watches as Tal goes to drift off to sleep. Shrugging, she turns back to the small statue, kneels downa and starts to prey while closing her eyes.

Talitha goes back to where she was sleeping and tries to go back to sleep. She feels a little bit guilty of waking up the gnome, and she thinks of apologizing in the morning once she wakes up.
With that thought in her mind she falls asleep again.

TEMPLE OF SARENRAE: Tal
The gnome walks over to the girl, adjusting her blankets. She sighs and goes back to her quarters.

A few hours later, the gnome comes out and opens the shutters, letting in the light. She has no armor or weapons, just wearing her simple gown. The gnome gets all the shutters open and kneels down for a moment. Pike whispers something and stands up. She looks around and opens the outer door, letting in the light.

Its a crisp morning, slightly cold but comfortable. Pike puts down a rock to hold the door open. She looks around and leans out as she has no boots then pulls the rock back closing the door.

Talitha wakes up as the chilly breeze filters through the door and windows. She sees the gnome moving energetically. Then she stands up and starts packing and cleaning the area she used to sleep. Folds the blankets and the pillow and leaves it over a chair. Then moved where the gnome is.
"Good morning Pike. Thank you for letting me stay here, it was very kind of you. And sorry I woke you up in the middle of the night it was not my intention. Can I help you with anything? Is there any way I can repay you for helping me yesterday?"
She smiles and checks what the gnome does, trying to find a way to lend a hand.

"Its alright. And no, nothing is needed. Morning routine." The gnome smiles back at her and sits down on a pew "You look like you needed a place to stay so I obliged. Plus you know it was pouring out." She puts her hair up into a ponytail and stretches then stands up.

"Ok, but please let me know if I can be of any help. I'd love to help if possible while I'm still here. Now if your really don't need help with anything I'll go to the market and check where and when is the next caravan back to the city."
Then she gets ready to go check in town about the way out of town.

A grungy cloaked figured wanders cautiously in from the south of town.  Surveying the activity, he approaches the market and begins to peruse the shops.

He's clearly been unsheltered for quite some time as his gear is quite dusty.  Loaded on his back are a short bow and quiver, backpack, and a shortsword on his hip.

He casually wanders the market, going shop to shop, apparently not finding anything of interest.

Zella, the innkeeper watches from her doorway. She leans against it sipping her tea. The other people slowly entered the marketplace as the woman watched. She spots Tal and shakes her head, looking over at the gunslingers pouch still sitting on a barrel nearbye. The woman turns and goes back inside but leave the door open and flips the sign from closed to open.

The mayor's wife doesn't come out from her home. Pulling up his tent, Humphree sits down and fiddles with some sort of objects "Welcome to Humphree! Come one come all! Oh! Over here!" He spots Tal and motions for her to come over and spots the rugged looking man "Who be that eh? New? Seems like we got more these days! Come and sit."

Several others that run misc market tents start to sell their wares. A burly man walks over with a small wheelcart full of wood. He offers some to a young woman and she accepts, giving him some odds and ends-probably food. Despite the poorness of this village, everyone seems to get along.

A man slowly enters the marketplace. He pulls off his hood, glancing about. To Tal, she knows him as Xander. He doesn't seem to spot her and walks into the inn. A few minutes later, he walks out and goes to head back out of the village.

Pike walks to the marketplace as well, unarmed and not within her armor. Some people smile at her and she nods. She goes to the blacksmith again and talks to him, then starts to head back to the small temple. She waves at Humphree who waves back and she stops at a market stall, talking to a older man. He tosses her an apple and she smiles before heading back to the temple.
