Current On the topic of Bethesda, my favorite is Fallout 4, simply because I enjoy the gameplay so much more than Fallout 3 or NV, and Skyrim can be a bit repetitive at times.

Ehhh... Fallout NV story > Skyrim Story. Skyrim Exploring without quests = NV Exploring quests

I MESSED UP. I'M SORRY. I GOTTA RE-DO MY POST. I didn't realize the fire mage had just immediately surrendered.
The ambush started, and immediately Mergoux went into action. Six crossbow bolts were fired at the girl, and six crossbow bolts were deflected. The girl's fire magic was powerful, and it seemed there was no chance to beat her in an open battle, at least not at first.

But that it appeared would not be the case, as the girl just... tossed the stones to the ground in front of Mergoux. The Half-Elf stopped, blinked in surprise and picked up the two rocks. She glanced at the equally surprised Mercs, then calmly tossed Jehenne and Rote as she walked up to the woman, carefully doing her best to avoid the smoldering earth.

She clenched one armored fist, staring down at the young girl. "You're young, you can change. Become better than this. Better than another slaver." she said, finishing her speech with a single blow aimed squarely at Louise's nose. Should her armored gauntlet connect, a concussion would certainly happen, followed by swift unconsciousness.

Like a hunter, Mergoux stalked her prey. She moved through the crowds with ease, seeming to vanish in one place, only to appear in another, such was the degree of her proficiency towards catlike stealth. Despite her gliding through the crowd, her eyes never left her targets for long. Only a few seconds at a time could she not see them. The two slaves and their new owner. They were headed towards the main exit, an unfortunate thing. She'd hoped that the ambush would take place in a smaller alleyway, somewhere she could trap the mage. Then again, with her display of fire magic, perhaps it was better to have room to maneuver.

The butcher followed them out of the marketplace, into the streets of the city where the Mercenaries hired by the Lord who'd spoken her in her head were lying in wait. Probably, she assumed, the Lord had spoken to them in the same manner, informing them of her arrival and her allegiance. She nearly spat at that. The idea of working with mercs never excited her, far from it she would rather take the girl alone. At least that way she could assure the young woman wouldn't be killed. With the company of unknown hired goons she couldn't be sure.

Her trained eyes kept watch both on her prey now, but also on the buildings to either side, watching for any signs of her new allies. Of their ambush. She wasn't sure of the exact location, but where they were now would do just fine. The crowds were thinning as Mergoux increased her pace, striding towards the unaware fire-mage, coincidentally at the same time the Mercs began their attack

Gonna try bumping this hesitantly. I'm gonna be picky about partners

Oops! Yeah I took that from @letter bee's post from Kaspar. And yeah to an extent she would look super young. I mean Mergoux is almost four times her age...
Mergoux mulled over the offer in her mind. Ten thousand was a lot of money. So much, in fact, that carrying that amount wouldn't be practical. Gold was heavy, and it wasn't like she could just open a bank account here. Still, to be paid for something she'd planned on doing anyways was always a bonus. She could get some new and better gear, keep some for the road and give the rest away. She nodded once to herself then 'addressed' the voice in her head. <Done. Which exit?> she thought.

Even as she 'spoke' to the voice, she had to wonder if she hadn't finally snapped, and was indeed speaking with a voice in her head. Looking over at the platform though, she was almost certain the voice was not one of her own creation. She moved closer to the stage, in time to overhear names. Indeed they matched the ones she was told by the voice, which was not something she could have known on her own. Reassured for the time being, Mergoux used her skills of stealth to blend in better with the crowd. She was much better at sneaking around, and one couldn't exactly hide out inconspicuously in a spiked helmet, but by bowing her head and turning away, using her exceptional hearing to keep tabs on the young girl and her magical talking staff, she managed not to look so conspicuous.

Post coming soon and @Letter Bee approved a mild amendment to Mergoux in that she also has exceptional hearing through her half-breed heritage. Since it's a notable power, I thought it best to tag y'all rather than just quietly edit the CS

Posted. Gotta find a proper, interactive portion for Merg to join, hopefully, this won't end in disaster
Mergoux froze as the voice spoke in her mind. Her lips formed a snarl as she locked eyes with the speaker, though his mouth did not move. She didn't know the man's name, but the face seemed somehow familiar. Perhaps she'd spotted him earlier in the crowd, or just at some point in the past month she'd spent here.

The man knew her, something that rather surprised the Warrior as she hadn't been to Venedig in nearly thirty years, and while her last visit had been marred with blood she thought it unlikely that her notoriety would have lasted so long in this city. He spoke to her of a plot, a plot to make life harder for the slave traders. That was all well and good, but Mergoux didn't particularly want to make life hard for the Slavers, as much as take it from them. Still, it was a step in the right direction at least, perhaps this stranger had noble goals in mind?

Regardless, she wasn't about to trust him so easily, however, she couldn't follow him now. She'd been made, and no doubt his guards would keep an eye peeled for her. If she was to recruit the Eidelweiss brothers as allies, she'd have to first free them from their master. Such a feat was not something she could attempt in broad daylight, in the middle of a throng of nobles buying slaves, low-born watching their former masters becoming lower than they, and guards keeping eyes peeled for any trouble.

No, for now she would fall back. Perhaps she could still find a way to disrupt the sale, but she'd need to plan an exit first. Her eyes locked on the plump auctioneer, his jowls quivering with excitement as he proudly announced the final bid on an older man and was now speaking to a woman with a staff, who seemed to be wanting to buy a pair of slaves. A woman and a man. Yes... that would cause a bit of a ruckus...

@letter bee @Zoey White @Landaus Five-One
Working on a post but unsure quite what to do... I'd like to get into running my character alongside some of you lovely people outside of our equally lovely GM, so I'll ruminate on it and post tomorrow methinks.

Also sadly, can't Co-GM either, got real-life stuff and other writing stuff keeping me too busy for that sorry.
