Within the Institute of War
Twisted Fate checked his pack to ensure he had everything he needed. He had many health and mana potions, rations, sleeping bag, and a canteen of water. He was familiar with off-road travel due to his gypsy days of traveling, and if worse came to worse he could always Destiny to a nearby location to restock and relax. The time constraint didn't bother him much as he could be just about anywhere with Destiny.
Now the question was...where would TF go if he were Ahri. She did seem to like the higher-class living provided to her by the League...but how much attention would a beautiful fox woman attract on the road? Far too much, she would be too easy to tail. So most likely she would have struck off on a less traveled path, but to where? She couldn't go anywhere extremely popular. The entire continent of Valoran could be after her for all she knew. That left the more hostile areas of Valoran, which was still alot of ground to cover.
He took out a crystal ball and began to focus energy into it to receive a foggy picture...now focus on who you want to find. He felt the heat of the sun pounding down on him...a few birds flying around him, and then....cacti.
"How clever" Twisted Fate said as he stowed the crystal ball and made his way to a place where he could rent a horse near the institute.
The clerk looked at him surprised, but Twisted Fate simply inquired, "Where is the closet outpost in the desert? Ah hear one of them is hostin' a poker tournament." He put some extra gold on the table to make it clear he didn't want to be followed and for the clerk to play along with the act.
The clerk nodded, "Aye there is one not far from here that ya' can reach if ya' move fast. Are ya' goin' ta' show them how a true cardshark does it?""
Twisted Fate chuckled, "Ya might say that. Ah need to stop any of the younger players from gettin' too big of a head on their shoulders." The clerk merely laughed at this before pointing Twisted Fate toward one of his faster horses.
Twisted Fate thanked the clerk and saddled up. Moments later he began his journey south to the nearest outpost. He went in an unhurried pace until the institute and any spectators were on the distant horizon, and then picked up the horse's pace. Ahri had a head start, but she couldn't be that far ahead. She most likely traveled on foot this way she wouldn't leave a gold trail...unlike Twisted Fate who knew how not to leave one. Furthermore, Ahri most likely had provisions, but may stick closer to the main road in case something went wrong. So the Cardmaster kept an eye on his surroundings for any figures in the distance...particularly those with nine tails.
