In the late morning, Lina makes arrangements with the elders of the Temple of Ehlonna to become a religious adviser to Lord Xavhorn Soulaxe. Pleased both with her prestige and good looks, Xavhorn accepts Lina’s offer, hiring her shortly before Runa appeared for her 1:30 audition.
At the gate to the Soulaxe manor, Ra’s speaks to Frank the gatekeeper to get Runa in for her appointment. After the usual pleasantries, Runa plays her lute and sings a song of adventure (quaffing a potion of Eagle’s Might before starting, to be more convincing):
While not entirely convinced by her surprisingly good performance, Lord Xavhorn is persuaded by Ra’s and Lina to hire Runa at least for a party in three day’s time to increase the morale of the townsfolk.
