Tales from the City of Opal

Game Master Patrick Curtin

This is my homebrew world Arcaia. This particular setting is the free city of Opal, a lush equatorial city set on the edge of an immense jungle rife with undead , ancient civilizations, and dinosaurs.

"Ah," Kessel says, "The warehouse is another matter entirely, I just don't intend to muddle any sort of cloak and dagger business by adding more people to the chase. Two maybe three should be able to trail someone, although it would be much harder to do as the streets empty, but certainly one would need to be completely blind to miss a half dozen adventurers tailing him. No, I shall stay here and muse on what we've learned thus far. I shall rehearse my "Ah ha! It's all falling into place!" line for when you return."

"Yeah if there all going guess I'll stay here and grab some shut eye."

He silently mouthes to Citlali (knowing she can read his lips), "So, shall we see what our observer was looking for?"

If she agrees, he (somewhat loudly and slurring his words) stands up and exclaims, "Guesh its time fer us to head, babe. Yer brudder's prolly wondrin where we're at." He staggers and almost falls, once again bracing himself against her.

Once out of the bar, he quickly scans the area to find the man.

The man is walking along the street, looking like any other reveler out on a stroll. He is heading slowly towards the warehouse that they had scoped earlier, the one bearing House Akkavin arms

Magnus gives Kessel a jaunty salute. His own sensibilities are ill-suited to waiting when there is adventure to be found, and he apparently takes the bard's statement seriously.

"You are a credit to your teammates sir." Magnus says, eying the roof, Egan, and the height with a wary eye.

While elves are naturally nimble, Magnus' own predilection was for flamboyancy in the dueling circle, or the dance floor, not acrobatics. But it only takes a moment for his self-confidence to reassure him that he can handle it. Though perhaps a modicum of caution would not be wasted.

"I see if I can follow San and Citlali for a bit. Maybe see what crawls out of that wharehouse at night eh?" He asks with a grin while pulling out a bundle of fine silk rope. He locates a sturdy roof beam to tie the rope off to, checks below to make certain no one is there, and drops the length of silk silently down. The slender silk vanishes almost magically into the darkness below.

Magnus sticks his head out of the window. "Egan, do you fancy a night stroll?" He asks with a mischievous waggle of fine elven eyebrows.

Are there roofs close enough to travel across? Or are the buildings too sparse for the 'rooftoop highway'? ;)

The rooftops are situated quite close together, with about ten feet or so distance as a rule.

San lightly taps Citlali on the shoulder to indicate her to stop a moment, all the while watching the man out of the corner of his eye. "Hold up a moment, darlin'. Think the drink's talkin' back to me ...". He staggers to a nearby gutter, and starts heaving, then slumps down on his rear with his head against a building (trying to keep the warehouse in view). "Just need to rest a bit, beautiful. World's a spinnin' right now ..." he says, making sure she can read his lips. At the same time, he uses to eyes to indicate the warehouse, and his finger to point to his spot, hoping she gets he wants to sit and watch for a bit if the guy walks into the Akkavin building.

Oh what the heck. This should be fun! ;)

Magnus takes a grip about 20 foot down hgis now tied off silk rope. "Just in case." He says to the others.

Magnus judges the gap, steps back as far as he is able, and then dashes forward and lightly leaps forward to the next roof.

Acrobatics vs DC:10 (If I have enough running room? 20 if not)

1d20 + 4 ⇒ (17) + 4 = 21

Magnus lands on the next roof, wobbles a bit, then turns and bows.

"No trouble." He hisses with a grin. But he tucks the end of his rope around a chimney top before carefully moving onward.

Magnus moves to the far edge of the roof, stepping lightly so as not to disturb those below. He peers around, trying to spot San or the guy San was following.

Perception: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (20) + 1 = 21

Wow. Nat 20. OK, Magnus is feeling pretty smug about his abilities right now. ;P


Kessel lays back on his cot and attempts to get a little shut eye while the others are off gallivanting.

Magnus lands lightly, the rough terra cotta tiles helping him to keep upright. He spots San and Citali In the distance by the warehouse

San watches the man walk up to a door and knock. The door opens and the man slips inside. The warehouse door closes, and it remains shut

Smiling, Citlali gives San a flicker of a nod as they unobstrusively watch the man enter the building.


Elf Magus 5

I'm back! (Mostly) ;P Happy 2015 ya'all! :)

Magnus treads carefully across the terra cotta tiles, feeling very much like a sneak thief, and enjoying the thrilling thoughts of risky robberies and daring rooftop escapes. He settles into the shadow of a small chimney where he can see San and Citali.

Before long Magnus comes to an amazing realization.

Thievery might be an exciting career. But sitting on a rooftop is BORING. And duecedly uncomfortable. He finds himself hoping for something to happen soon. Just to break the monotony.

'I know I know. Be careful what you wish for.' Magnus tells himself wistfully.

San tries to ascertain if the man used a "special" knock or some sort of code to gain access to the warehouse.

Bribes always welcome

He used a three-knock tap. It seemed a long beat between. San is confident he could mimic it

Bump


Elf Magus 5

Sorry, busy week(s), musical shows. I am here! :)


Male Half-Elf Ranger 1 / Wizard (transmuter) 4

A few minutes after the man enters the building, San staggers back to his feet and once again leans on Citlali. "All right, beautiful, I'm ready to go. Yer brudder is awaitin'". He leads her on past the building, taking a quick peek inside, and further on. Once out of sight of the building, he'll double back to the others, and relay his findings.

Egan moves up silently behind Magnus, ready to grab him if he flinches at his sudden arrival. "Looks like the others are on their way back".


Elf Magus 5

At the sound of Egan's voice, Magnus makes his own sound.
A cross between hoarse parrot, and a sick buffalo.
To his credit, he does not visibly flinch.

The glance he throws over his shoulder is equal parts annoyance/fear and relief/gratitude. But in an instant the dapper dandy is his smiling self again.

"Looks like. Shall we see what our intrepid spies have discovered?" He asks with a grin.


Elf Magus 5

"How DO you walk so quietly?" Masgnus asks Egan, only mildly peevish.

"I'm elvish, we are known for our grace, beauty, skill with blade and bow, and ability to pass unnoticed. But you make my lightest step look like a dwarven infant's tromping about?!?"

"Ah well. Three out of four isn't bad." He adds with a flip of his hair and his usual smirk.

The dandy adds a sly wink to Egan, just to show that he is joking. Mostly. ;)
