Tchort the Doors were already open, so might want to redo the action?

the door itself is locked, though between the two keys you figure out which one opens the door.

A small stone bench sits in the center of this dusty chamber. On the far wall is a faded mural depicting the hero Kassen defeating the mercenaries at the entrance to this crypt, with his blade piercing the chest of the mercenary leader. These figures stand alone in the center of a scene of carnage, with dead villagers and mercenaries all around them.

Sovereign Court

currently outside in a covered area, with a locked door

Sovereign Court

the creature falls over and just collapses

~End of Combat~

Congrats and enjoy the level, I will check in periodically, over the weekend, and will start back with the storyline on monday

Sovereign Court

over the weekend guys get your characters up to lvl 2, cause I don't think this battle will take much longer

Bulvi comes in and slashes at the tree, and almost feels like calling out timber as the creature falls over dead

Sovereign Court

weakness of Fire

Sovereign Court

Wooden stairs crawl up an alley wall toward a second-story awning that shelters a stout iron door roughly etched with blackbirds. Strange scents waft from the door’s barred porthole, and a thick haze blankets a large room within that is crammed with cots and couches.

Sovereign Court

Carianna Swings and fails to connect

Ibona tries the same, and misses, though she does know what these creatures are, they are called Frost Firs, what 1 thing do you want to know?

Quasit comes around and nimble avoids the big tree, and hits though the tree's bark reduces some of the damage

Sakitu misses her shot at the creature

Findurel not waisting anytime fires a round at the other one, though again the bark isn't allowing all of it to go through

Red turns to face Ibona, 5ft steps sideways and swings its large limb

even Quasit, Odd Ibona: 1d6 ⇒ 3

Slam: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (6) + 3 = 9

though it seems to have missed

Blue 5ft steps back towards red and swings at Quasit

Slam: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (11) + 3 = 14

and Blue misses as well

oddly enough this place is a Shiver den, but its only like 1 or 2 rooms, nothing major, and RPwise has nothing of value to discover or share, its just a little side detour

Sovereign Court

as Bulvi finishes his statement, and Sakitu prepares, Ibona stepping forward to address whatever she thinks is there, the two trees step forward and start to attack

Init:

Bulvi: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (1) + 2 = 3
Findurel: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (4) + 7 = 11
Quasit: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (8) + 6 = 14
Carianna: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (15) + 3 = 18
Sakitu: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (12) + 2 = 14

Sovereign Court

Kuriq, the bartender didn't lie with his statement, though he wasn't being forthcoming about everything. he doesn't just let anyone in to such places if he has one.

Sovereign Court

looking around Beau and Kuriq really notices more Bar patrons then any shiver addicts, though not sure if it is just a front, or if its an actual pub. while listening to Shiva's conversation with the bartender Beau believes his story about going to find it outside instead of being here

the bartender looks at shiva and the people coming in with her before stating "I don't know what you have heard, but if you are looking for shiver, you best find the streets, its all over out there, I'm sure you can manage out there instead better then here"

Sovereign Court

Sakitu while looking, you could have sworn the branch that was holding up the snow moved on its own, but it didn't crack and break off, it just moved down and gone

the pool is roughly 40ft deep, though as fundir starts to detect magic, one of the keys lights up

Sovereign Court

you get the impression that The Soiled Sow being a bar is doing quite well, a fair amount of patrons go in and stay for a while and when they exit some seem extremely drunk, some seem like they had a good time. looking inside it looks as a bar, including a bartender who is there cleaning up the bar a moment from a few spilled drinks from a previous stool tenant

Sovereign Court

Ecthelien looking around you look into the pool, at the
bottom of the pool are about 100 keys, all nearly identical.

Sovereign Court

Nox yes, its how Tchort was able to see inside originally

Sovereign Court

as you make your way forward, you seem to see that the trees are getting a bit denser here, A cold wind blows through the forest atop the ridge. heavy snow burdens the boughs of the evergreen trees, but someone has apparently cleared the snow from a large patch of ground to dig in the pine-needle-carpeted soil. as snow seems to fall from some branches

Perception check

Sovereign Court

In the center of this room is a large pool of clear water, fed by a fountain on the wall above it. The fountain has a stone statue of a weeping maiden holding the slain body of Kassen, but his head has been broken o" and is nowhere to be seen. A voice booms out from the darkness, saying, “Magic is the key.” The voice slowly fades, leaving a dreadful silence.

Sovereign Court

on the corpse you find a couple possible useful items:

1 pair of Snow Shoes
2 +1 Animal-Bane Arrows
3 days worth of Rations
1 half full hip flask of strong Applejack
and
1 journal detail his efforts in tracking the giant weasel

the body itself has suffered severe frostbite from the cold, and what looks consistent with Weasel Claw and bite marks

Sovereign Court

The one with the X on the doors are Barred, the one where You Tchort and Orladan are at, are open

Sovereign Court

The rocks and snow along this part of the ridge are stained a reddish brown, and many tracks, both animal and human, cross the area. Recently, one of Heldren’s more esteemed hunters, a man named Dryden Kepp, returned from a hunting foray in the Border Wood with a story about a giant white weasel roaming the forest. The townsfolk of Heldren scoffed at his tale (Dryden was known to nip from his hip flask on a regular basis), which only spurred Dryden to hunt down the beast so he could make a trophy of it and prove everyone wrong. Dryden managed to catch the creature in one of his bear traps, but the creature broke free and mauled the hunter before he could make his kill. Dryden retreated up the ridge, hoping to escape
the enraged beast, but the beast eventually tracked him down and finished the job, and Dryden’s mutilated corpse now lies half-buried in the snow here

Knowledge Nature DC 13:

They are Giant Weasel Tracks

Sovereign Court

man, no worries, RL takes priority

Sovereign Court

you know the General area of the city in which it is located in, not an exact address, which is common

Sovereign Court

Red Death: 1d6 ⇒ 5

Quasit and Carianna DC 11 reflex for 1/2

~End of Combat~

Sovereign Court

I haven't heard from Camred in a while, I sent her a message earlier this week, if I don't hear from her by tuesday I'll consider her dropped

Sovereign Court

No it is not considered a new day, and guidance is fine

Beau detects no magic in the brew at all, and even to Theodric's surprise he doesn't detect any poison at all.

Kuriq and Henrick get a bit of a chatter going with some of the locals, and hear that there are several Shiver dens around, though two names were heavily stated/implied "The Soiled Sow" and "The Rook's Roost", and a warning about being out when it starts to get dark, and avoid the lamplighters they are a problem.

Sovereign Court

Arol succeeds at disabling the device

Sovereign Court

and as before as Ulric and Yuukyou push on the door, the door does not open, it would seem to be barred on the other side. no clatter at all from Tchorts words.

Artic will follow

Sovereign Court

after agreeing to help the Magistrate, and he tells you what is expected, though nothing really too much beyond two dozen deaths in just as many weeks, you make your way out and out into town.

None in Bridgefront have escaped the plague of restless dreams. Posters for missing persons are wearily tacked up by glassy-eyed relatives, while lines for the district’s mobile coffee vendors—their hulking, spigoted
barrels strapped over their shoulders—grow increasingly long. There is
nodding recognition of everyone’s “hag-ridden” appearance, and in
every market stall citizens speak of vivid, lifelike nightmares.

you are out and about trying to find the information you need, around you there are people who can be questioned for information, or possibly other things, to question it would be either a Knowledge Local, or Diplomacy

Sovereign Court

"I don't know exactly who they are, but this is what I need you to find out for me, I need you to gather any evidence that ties Frells death to the brotherhood of the spider, Locate and apprehend the dealer who provided the toxic narcotic. If you can find the den where Frell died, you can find the dealer. and if you can find the dealer, there is little doubt you will also uncover proof of the cult responsible for poisoning the wells and bringing the nightmares to bridgefront's citizens"

Sovereign Court

if you can disable you can attempt, otherwise, I'll lower the dc of an Acrobatics to avoid it to a DC 5 just cause there is no space around it

Sovereign Court

so as a few of you look down the hallway, you notice that there is a slightly raised part of the stone floor

Sovereign Court

so still your action then on the round, before going to round 2

Sovereign Court

to those doing sense motives, you believe she is telling you what she can

the captain doesn't answer who his uncle is mostly cause she doesn't want
to talk about it openly. she does mention a shop or two that might be able to help Kuriq.

"besides being a plague on our society, I don't know the specifics, but its sold as a good time drug, to escape your worries and troubles"

she leads you to the magistrates building and takes you inside "One moment while I inform him you are here" she heads to one of the rooms and starts to talk briefly.

a deep males voice can be heard before the captain steps out and waves you in.

"“Bridgefront is suffering a plague unlike anything seen since the days of the blood veil. It is as insidious as any disease, and we believe each death is feeding an unholy blasphemy: a terrible idol worshiped by a dangerous cult known as the Brotherhood of the Spider. We now know that this cult has not only seized control of the shiver trade in Old Korvosa, but may also be slowly poisoning the neighborhood’s wells, driving a flood of new addicts among our city’s most desperate and causing terrible nightmares among innocent citizens.”

speaks Magistrate Drune, Korvosa’s Magistrate of Civic Order. He is a short, rotund man with thinning, greasy hair and a patchy mustache

Sovereign Court

now is that 0 after Ibona healed or before? cause Ibona goes last

Sovereign Court

5 damage total, and 1 is cold

Sovereign Court

there are 2 unconcious still, Quasit, and Sakitu I believe
