I headed to Lydius again to try and give it a better explore and see if I could meet anyone new. This time I opted to enter via the safer seaward side (docks are always safezones in SL Gor).
This way I might explore in relative safety.
Beyond the dock gate I found quite a sizeable area of land
I headed for the gates of the city, but they were unsurprisingly locked.
Since there was evidently no-one home I decided to explore the other buildings in the area, one of which turned out to be a tavern.
Inside a girl was dancing for her Master
I went and introduced myself and joined him in a vacant chair
His girl by the name of Roxanne, made me a drink while I chatted with the man,Dirk.
I talked with him of where I was based across the river and of my recent encounter at the other city gate. He told me of who I might contact to get a key to the city gates and that there were homes available inside, so I may consider that.
He then escorted me safely to the city gates since he was returning to his home inside.
