Runelords

He takes a deep pull from his pipe then sends out a cloud of smoke.

Its gonna cost some coin, and we are going to need to find something for them to do that is legal.

Another cloud of smoke.

I am thinking that we might need to give them some schooling to. Not for the fain of heart. Now while I am doing this, what will you be doing?


Runelords

2d20 ⇒ (5, 12) = 17

Three fires burst up around the "barracks" there are cries of panic. Meanwhile our heroes make their way to the tunnel and are ready to enter, Jakadaros sets himself up to try to clean up folks that try to break out.

Tarin what are you doing now?


Runelords

I'm here. Sorry. Was waiting in a post from you guys then got slammed. I'll catch up tomorrow


Runelords

Just add that advancement to your characters. You do not change your levels to PC classes. Once it's set we will move on. I figure this makes up for losing brannock


Runelords

thats a good question. lets say retroactive. If its too much then, illl just put a pause on it

new post coming tomorrow


Runelords

Guys I'm going to institute this system.

http://www.d20pfsrd.com/gamemastering/other-rules/automatic-bonus-progressi on


Runelords

No


Runelords

1d20 ⇒ 6 init

Go ahead and take a surprise, then your attack


Runelords

going to take this for my new move

On the Move

When you defy a danger caused by movement (maybe falling off a narrow bridge or rushing past an armed guard) take +1.


Runelords

Bump


Runelords

gotta get to y updating, another level of opportunist


Runelords

go make your pitch to your da


Runelords

so i am unsure about how it works. going under and dropping out of rage means i now have -HP of lethal, on top of all my non-lethal. Do I still need to stabilize?[


Runelords

Ayre could care less.

Rocky wants it named Rocky


Runelords

Brannock seems to be indisposed, and goes to hang out with Hippa.

so want to just head there, or alter your plan any?


Runelords

Brannock you still around?


Runelords

So you will be visible after you start bombing?

You will need to make a stealth check then


Runelords

Exxor isn't sure but there must be something between them. Good or bad he can't say


Runelords

Tarvi happens to be walking through when this is said.

If he fights he better die. Cause if he fights and comes back I will kill him myself.


Runelords

hint hint. Might wanna start here.


Runelords

Our heroes arrive at the guard command and are waived through. You find yourselves in front of Field Marshal
Cressida Kroft, an attractive, dark-haired human woman
dressed in red armor. She introduces herself and asks for
the PCs’ names as she bids them to sit. Since Eodred II’s
death, Cressida hasn’t slept, yet she bears her exhaustion
well, in no small part due to regular visits from a priest of
Abadar who casts lesser restoration on her to help in fighting
back fatigue. She sighs deeply as she speaks to the PCs.
Ah yes—you are the ones sent by Queen Ileosa. Greetings—
my name is Cressida, and heroes of your caliber are exactly
what Korvosa needs now. You’ve been on the streets. You know
better than me how bad things are out there. It’s breaking my
heart to see Korvosa tear herself apart like this. Every little
bit of aid we can get from upstanding citizens like you helps.
If you’re willing, I’d very much like to retain your services as
agents of the Guard. I don’t need to say, of course, that you’ll
be well compensated for these services.”

Assuming the PCs agree to hear her out, Cressida continues cause i know you will

Korvosa’s got enough troubles as it is without my own men
losing their way and going rogue. As much as it pains me to
admit, though, this has happened several times already. Many
guards have deserted their posts, more concerned about
friends and family than the city. I can understand this, yet not
all of the deserters have family—some of them are simply using
the riots as an excuse for personal gain. One such man is Verik
Vancaskerkin. Worse than a lone deserter, he’s convinced a small
group of fellow guards that Queen Ileosa is going to ruin the city.
Whether she does or doesn’t isn’t the point—right now, we’ve
got a city-wide crisis on our hands, and I need all of my guards
working with me to see us through. A deserter is worse than a
lost resource—it’s an infection. I can’t afford to pull any of my
other patrols off duty to deal with Vancaskerkin, and I’d rather
not expose any of them to him anyway, since I neither want
Vancaskerkin to infect more guards with his talk of secession,
nor do I want some overly patriotic guard killing Vancaskerkin
outright. I need impartial, skilled talent. Like you.
“Vancaskerkin and his men have holed
up in an abandoned butcher’s shop up in
Northgate—the place was called All the
World’s Meat. I need you to check out
the place. Try to avoid killing any of the
deserters if you can, but if you must,
they brought it upon themselves when
they threw in their lot with Vancaskerkin.
For him, I’d really prefer it if you could
capture him alive and return him to me
for interrogation, but if he makes that
impossible, I’ll accept his body as well.
Finally, see if you can find out why
Verik deserted—if there’s more to
it than simple personal politics, I
need to know immediately. Bring
me Verik alive, and there’s another
thousand gold in it for you. Dead,
he’s only worth half that.”

I am not sure if you have a base of operations, but if you would like I can set up a line of credit at the Three Rings Tavern. Whatever you need I will do my best to provide. [/b]


Runelords

I will let you guys decide what you do in the discussion thread. gonna move us on


Runelords

Audi pours through the text and this pops out to him

the Lucca name reveals that
the family is a relatively insignificant one whose fall
from the grace and glory of pre-Thrune Westcrown is
its main distinguishing feature. Once, they were among
the most elite of the city, but today, Rance Luccy is all
that remains. This Knowledge check reveals the fact that
he runs a semi-legal fighting ring called the Devildrome
located in the southwest corner of Rego Cader.


Runelords

I will assume you just rest, and take some lay on hands from Arael till you are better


Runelords

[b] We will man the outside of the fort, once those fires start I can rain down arrows and draw a few of them out[b]. Jakadaros says

buff up tarin let me know what buffs you use and how many bombs you want to drop. If you don't have I proved invisible you will need to give me stealth


Runelords

Can you humor me and re-list te plan.

I want to play it right


Runelords

I think Dwarfus an Kronug will get along just fine


Runelords

yea just tossing in a little gold here and there to kill the time.

im just gonna keep letting it ride


Runelords

We go now we wil deal with him after. His cowardis will be dealt with


Runelords

If we have enough who want it I'll put it in


Runelords

It does not seem to actually be a code. Seems like someone thought it was a code.


Runelords

Anyone here a PFS player? I can report the first book for credit...if I haven't don't that already


Runelords

Tarin makes his way back before Kacen has turned around.

Now what?


Runelords

Gonna swap hatred for ancient enmity

Might swap hardy for the one that gives toughness


Runelords

I'm pretty bashy

Basically a barbarian but went with the bloodrager

Buzz I might add primalist archetype just to have more options down the road


works for me, off to play PFS right now!


Runelords

The portfolio contains a lot of info SEE THE MAP FOR THE TEXT

Additionally there are

Ledgers: These sheets of paper serve as accounting ledgers
for Delvehaven. All of the ledgers are dated from the years
of 4674–4676, the period when Delvehaven was under the
control of the House of Thrune. Of particular interest is a
passage on the top paper that indicates the strong possibility
that the Delvehaven Pathfinders hid a portion of their
treasure and clues about how to enter the deepest vaults in
an off-site hidden cache somewhere in or near Westcrown,
but that no indication of where this cache might be located
has yet surfaced. These ledgers are frustratingly vague and
written in shorthand, but on-site, they grant a +8 bonus on
Appraise checks made to determine an object’s value and a
+8 bonus on Spellcraft checks made to identify magic items
discovered within Delvehaven. The ledgers cease abruptly at
the end with no explanation.

Missing Pathfinder List: This single piece of
parchment lists the names, descriptions, and in many cases their fates

Poem Cipher: What appears to be a page torn from the
back of a book sits in a larger piece of folded parchment.
The torn-out page presents a poorly written poem called
“Cugny’s Wedding,” about a man who falls in love with
a mermaid but drowns when he tries to seduce her. The
poem is covered with spidery script, as is the folded
parchment that cradles it. A quick study of the parchment
indicates that someone believed the poem was a code
or cipher that hid the route to a cache of Pathfinder
treasures kept outside of Delvehaven (as indicated in the
ledger portion of the Delvehaven papers).


Runelords

She nods, then gestures to her chamberlain who delivers a box to Kaz

Appraise 15:

The box is worth 100 gold

Inside the box:

12 Gold ingots stamped with the seal of the Queen

Appraise 15 tells you they are each worth 100 gold

My men will give you the details. Now if you will excuse me, I have other business to attend to

The Queen rises and leaves.


Runelords

Interlude:

You really don't know?! She sighs.

She takes the book and tosses it on the bed behind her. Don't think this gets you out of the dog house... Sorry Barksalot.

She closes the door.

Sir Barksalot uncovers his eyes and sits up and cocks his head at Tram

Runelords

Tram:
Sir Barksalot lays down and covers his eyes with his paws.

The door opens and Tarvi stands there, with a hand on her hip. What do you want you idiot?


whelp i guess today is the the day.

mainly just making a post so its easy for everyone to find the thread.


Runelords

I would assume that references Delvehaven, the selfsame lodge you are supposed to get into

Tram:
Whelp you are standing outside her door. What could possibly go wrong. Just as you are about to knock you hear a thump thump thump and you turn just in time to get tackled by Sir. Barksalot.


Runelords

Fire. but, you would have to get close to it and maybe you can CDG it, but probably not. Its senses make it likely that the second you touch the treasure it is on, it will wake up.


Runelords

the crux flops open and inside the following are revealed

Erinyes Head: The strangest object in the crux is the
severed head of the erinyes —a severed
head that immediately begins shrieking and screaming as
soon as the crux is opened.

Leather Portfolio: This leather-bound portfolio bears a
single mark on its cover—an embossed and very stylized
letter “D.” A [spoiler=DC 20 Knowledge (local) check identifies this
mark as the symbol for the Pathfinder lodge of Delvehaven.[/spoiler]

Scrolls: These three magic scrolls consist of a scroll of
heal, a scroll of remove curse, and a scroll of scrying.

Silver Box: This is a small silver box engraved with
dancing skeletons and containing four stubby candles.
These are grave candles,

Wands: This is a matched pair of slender oak wands; one
is a wand of break enchantment (8 charges), and the other is a
wand of death ward (7 charges


Runelords

Several of the churches offer something, and a you think that you can actually set up the place comfortably for the Lamm's

Early the next morning an armed escort arrives, and announces that the queen has requested your presence.

assuming you are going

Before long you find yourself in front of th queen herself

She speaks

“This brooch was stolen from me some time ago—I
had not expected to see it again, truth be told. And
yet, here on my darkest day, you come before me with
kindness. The return of this brooch is much more
than an honorable deed. It is inspiration. It is hope.
“I love Korvosa, as my husband did before me. His
death has shocked the city as it has me, but I will not see
his legacy destroyed in death, and I shall not see my city
torn apart. All Korvosa stands at the precipice of a disaster
wrought by her citizens—these riots cannot continue. You
have already done my heart a great service in returning
this bauble to me on this dark day, and you shall be
rewarded. Yet, perhaps you can serve your city more.
“If you so choose, I shall have Sabina see to it that you have
an escort of guards when you leave here—they can see to your
safe journey to Citadel Volshyenek. I shall send word ahead of
you to Field Marshal Cressida Kroft to let her know you are
on the way—the Korvosan Guard is stretched thin, and it can
certainly use the aid of heroes such as yourself. Now, I need
to retire to my personal quarters—my grief has drained me.
Again, I thank you for the kindness you have shown me, and I
hope your days of serving the crown are only just beginning.”


Runelords

So following for 20 minutes?


Runelords

She eats you
