The rotten deck of the this ancient barge seems to be barely intact, its hull worn and thick with seaweed and barnacles. The barge is held together primarily by the layers of old rope that lash it securely to the pilings that support the fishery and the nearby boardwalk. A single wooden door leading into the aft cabin bears a crude painting of a red fish on its surface.

Who's going to be the first one on board?

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Ok so you all going to the boat outside?

Cheliax

James when do you think we'll see another AP or module based in Cheliax?

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Only if you have the ranks in knowledge nobility

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Venator

Spoiler:
The a cigar case inlaid with jade at least 15gp, a gold ingot with a coat of arms 100gp (the coat of arms is cheliaxian), a minature crown is worth 350gp, a carving of a kracken worth 200gp, a silver ring which in closer inspection has an inscription "For Emmah - the light in my nights" worth at least 100gp, two ivory figures of succubi worth at least 450gp, an arrow head made of adamantine, a shuriken which is masterwork, a symbol of Shelyn is worth 300gp, a small crystal tube containing a dose of oil of keen edge, an obsidian stick which is a wand of magic missile, a crystaline vial containing a doese of silversheen and a bejeweled brooch with a broken clasp which is obviously the most valuable object of the entire collection depicting a pseudodragon and an imp coiled around each other their eyes inlaid with jewels which is worth 1,000gp and is the possession of the queen of Korvosa, Queen Ileosa and was an heirloom of the Korvosan monarchy

Cheliax

Before I go on, Venator also roll a knowledge nobility or history check

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

So content of the items

Spoiler:
There is a cigar case inlaid with jade, a gold ingot with a coat of arms, a minature crown, a carving of a kracken, a silver ring, two ivory figures of succubi, an arrow head, a shuriken, a symbol of Shelyn, a small crystal tube, an obsidian stick, a crystaline vial and a bejeweled brooch with a broken clasp which is obviously the most valuable object of the entire collection depicting a pseudodragon and an imp coiled around each other their eyes inlaid with jewels

Venator

Spoiler:
3 of the items are magical in nature

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

13 objects wrapped up in cloth and tied together with string fly out of the chest as Lia bursts it open, they're a bit indistinct under so much cloth

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

The chest is holding out stubbornly

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Lia manages to bust one of the laches of the chest, its still locked but with a little more effort it can be opened

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Venator

Spoiler:
The deck is clearly magical, very powerful too, you've never seen an aura quite like it before

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

well this is early days, you have time to do better

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Lia

Spoiler:
You find this disgusting place to have some more shocking things in it than others, one such thing is a severed head, its made up with make up to look pretty, it looks like that of the woman you had spoken to earlier today. Bellow the head is a small deck of card, neatly kept in a black box. There is also a locked up trunk where Lamm kept valuables. You can't find any papers of the entreprice here on where the slaves whent or who they where sold to

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

There is a small rowing boat that is anchored near by, there is also the large one outside

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Lia

Spoiler:
This foul-smelling room seems to be a combination bedroom and study. A wooden bed with a lumpy mattress stands against the east wall, while a round table heaped with dirty plates, bread crusts, stained goblets, fruit rinds, and scuttling cockroaches sits nearby. At the foot of the bed sits a large strongbox, a slighty rusted lock securing its lid. A sagging dresser filled with moth-eaten clothes well past their glory days is in one corner—what appears to be a wooden hatbox surrounded by a small cloud of flies sits atop this dresser.

Make a peception check

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Jirani

Spoiler:
You walk in to the other room to see a splash down the hole bellow, you faintly hear Venator's cry of "No!" coming from below

Cheliax

James, what do you think Sandpoint would look like in 100 years in the future from the current setting?

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

AoP 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (11) + 6 = 17
damage 1d4 - 3 ⇒ (4) - 3 = 1

Lamm manages a quick swipe at Lia, but its not enough to deter her from pushing him over the edge. Lamm flies off into the pool, his eyes widen in horror. With a splash the waters become tainted red with blood, the alligator turns round seeing a quick meal, one its been hungry for for quite some time

Bite on Lamm 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (16) + 5 = 21
to wound 1d8 + 4 ⇒ (7) + 4 = 11
grapple with the bite 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (18) + 11 = 29

And that is pretty much it for Lamm

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Andando slices Lamm near his ribs with one blade, but fails to hit with the other

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Jirani

Spoiler:
The kids nod, and one even tells you that the gnome won't be going anywhere

Venator's arrow embeds deep in the 'gator's, it seems very hurt

Aerodus' arrow misses Lamm by an inch

Cheliax

yes, congrats to those who are in, I look forward to reading your articles

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Lamm takes a 5-foot step, then tries to slash Lia with a dagger
Att 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (14) + 6 = 20
Dmg 1d4 - 3 ⇒ (1) - 3 = -2

Crocodile
Climb 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (4) + 4 = 8

It fails to get close enough to bite anyone this round

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Aerodus hits Lamm wounding him in the shoulder

Andando and Lia

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Ok, so initiative order: Aerodus, Andando and Lia, Lamm and 'gator and finally Venator

So Aerodus what do you do?

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Oh don't underestimate the croc

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Venator hits the Alligator, though the arrow doesn't sink too deep

Will save 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (15) + 2 = 17

It seems unaffected by Lia's spell

Everyone in combat, roll initiative

Cheliax

Meri, is there any place in Golarion that you would never travel to?

Cheliax

now the long wait till its release...

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Jirani

Spoiler:
Pretty much, though you could just leave the prisoner to the kids and help the party to not get bored

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

"Oh... and you are?"

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Lia, Venator

Spoiler:
You see an alligator swimming in the whole on the floor

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

The air in this large room is somewhat chilly and stinks of the river, no doubt thanks to a huge opening in the floor that drops away to the river shore five feet below. Several pilings emerge from the waters to support the roof above, with mossy ropes slung between them. In two places, rusty manacles hang from the ropes over the water. Two five-foot-wide walkways cross the hole’s edge to the other side of the chamber, where a collection of old cabinets, lockboxes, and piles of clutter are strewn about. Chipped porcelain plates, a cracked goblet, badly rusted silverware, an old woodenshield with a crossbow bolt embedded in it, the odd dinged helm, and other “treasures” litter the floor of this entire chamber. Three tables, their tops heaped with additional clutter, stand amid this mess, while just west of that a wooden door seems to provide access to a walled-off section.

There is an old man huddled over a table at the far end, there is no one else in the room

Everyone make a perception check

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

welcome back

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Aerodus

Spoiler:
You just hear water splashing about on the other side, the door doesn't seem trapped

Cheliax

you're all doomed

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Lia and Aerodus

Spoiler:
You spot swimming in the waters a shark, its hard to tell how big it is or how deep it is due to the murkyness of the water

Venator

Spoiler:
You don't notice anything

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Perception checks from everyone in the under-peer

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Noted, who's going inside first?

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

ok lets get things moving again

A narrow space exists under the fishery, with about four feet of room between the floor of the building above and the languid, foamy river water below. Wooden pilings support the building, and moss and cobwebs hang thick from ropes and rusted chains between them. A wooden walkway floats on the river surface, winding along the inner wall of pilings that supports the building’s frame above, leading from the sodden barge to the east all the way west to a wooden door that leads into an understructure below the fishery’s landbound half.

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

well the ladder is outside but sure

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

"There-there is a ladder by the ship to the peer bellow"

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Its about a 30ft drop into water

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Lia

Spoiler:
There is a large room bellow, with lots of ropes and buckets hanging from the hole, there is no easy way to get down there, mostly like down the ropes

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

"He is down there" they say afraid, pointing at a hole on the floor

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Venator gets a second clean hit, and kills the orc, Andando somehow fails to hit the falling body

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

The half-orc will try to pick up the greased fail
Reflex 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (20) + 1 = 21
He picks it up and grips it ready to strike

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

hm, Ok, I guess I'll add the half-orc's actions

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Are you?

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Venator's crossbow his the half-orc right in the chest, hurting him deeply but he's still up
