All the best, Adair.

Diplomacy? Fine by me!

"It is as my elven friend here says! We are on a mission of mercy, to save a man struck down by cowardly poison! Let us pass so we may help him!"

Blake quietly says:

"There are eyes upon us. Can anyone make out their position?"

The noble tries to do just that.

"It is better to first take care of the living! Perhaps these Black Hearts took the herbs?"

Blake pockets the pouch with a smooth motion.

It's not like the man needs them now and I see no evidence of kin.

Blake has a rummage around the man's possessions and clothes, to see if anything catches his eye.

Perception: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (20) + 6 = 26

I'm getting the hang of it a bit. I think. ;)

Blake looks at the corpse with distaste.

"Damanable spiders. I am not surprised that they got him. They had a good go at us! Perhaps there is a lair to purge nearby?"

Blake begins to come around, sit ups, looks about him, then clutches at the bite on his neck.

"By Cleos, my neck feels as if a wench tried to eat through it! My thanks, Adair. We are victorious, I take it?"

7/16 HP


Human (Valerian)Rogue (scoundrel) 1 | HP: 7/16 | AC: 15, TAC: 12 | F: +3, R: +7, W: +6 | Perc: +6 Society +5 Deception/Diplomacy/Intimidation +7 | Speed 25ft | Hero Points: 1/1 | | Active conditions:

Despite the attentions of his new-found companions, Blake has to struggle for a little longer. But then his breathing eases into a healthier pattern.

Recovery Check: 1d20 ⇒ 11

Wounded 1 I believe. :)


Human (Valerian)Rogue (scoundrel) 1 | HP: 7/16 | AC: 15, TAC: 12 | F: +3, R: +7, W: +6 | Perc: +6 Society +5 Deception/Diplomacy/Intimidation +7 | Speed 25ft | Hero Points: 1/1 | | Active conditions:

Check DC 12: 1d20 ⇒ 15

Blake shudders slightly, still holding to life.

Now Dying 1, I believe.


Human (Valerian)Rogue (scoundrel) 1 | HP: 7/16 | AC: 15, TAC: 12 | F: +3, R: +7, W: +6 | Perc: +6 Society +5 Deception/Diplomacy/Intimidation +7 | Speed 25ft | Hero Points: 1/1 | | Active conditions:

I may not get to post again before Friday evening.


Human (Valerian)Rogue (scoundrel) 1 | HP: 7/16 | AC: 15, TAC: 12 | F: +3, R: +7, W: +6 | Perc: +6 Society +5 Deception/Diplomacy/Intimidation +7 | Speed 25ft | Hero Points: 1/1 | | Active conditions:

On the ground, Blake twitches.

Check DC 11: 1d20 ⇒ 9

Fort Save DC 16: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (18) + 3 = 21


Human (Valerian)Rogue (scoundrel) 1 | HP: 7/16 | AC: 15, TAC: 12 | F: +3, R: +7, W: +6 | Perc: +6 Society +5 Deception/Diplomacy/Intimidation +7 | Speed 25ft | Hero Points: 1/1 | | Active conditions:

The venom strikes Blake down shockingly swiftly and the noble slumps like a fallen sack of potatoes.

Recovery check rules, which strangely weren't linked to from the dying condition srd text.

Recovery Check DC 11: 1d20 ⇒ 11

Fort Save vs Poison DC 16: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (8) + 3 = 11

Venom Damage (?): 1d10 ⇒ 8


Human (Valerian)Rogue (scoundrel) 1 | HP: 7/16 | AC: 15, TAC: 12 | F: +3, R: +7, W: +6 | Perc: +6 Society +5 Deception/Diplomacy/Intimidation +7 | Speed 25ft | Hero Points: 1/1 | | Active conditions:

Seeing the danger to his companions from these vermin, Blake jogs past the spider - then circles around and strikes!

Move, move, attack.

The idea is to get Blake into a flanking position with Adair.

Rapier vs FF spider: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (9) + 5 = 14

Damage, including sneak attack: 1d6 + 1d6 ⇒ (6) + (6) = 12

As he drives the point of his rapier towards the spider, Blake quips:

"We shall soon be done with these verminous pests!"


Human (Valerian)Rogue (scoundrel) 1 | HP: 7/16 | AC: 15, TAC: 12 | F: +3, R: +7, W: +6 | Perc: +6 Society +5 Deception/Diplomacy/Intimidation +7 | Speed 25ft | Hero Points: 1/1 | | Active conditions:

The clarity is appreciated.

Fine by me.


Human (Valerian)Rogue (scoundrel) 1 | HP: 7/16 | AC: 15, TAC: 12 | F: +3, R: +7, W: +6 | Perc: +6 Society +5 Deception/Diplomacy/Intimidation +7 | Speed 25ft | Hero Points: 1/1 | | Active conditions:

Understood. 15' away Blake is then.

Seeing the turmoil, Blake whips out a torch, lights it with flint and steel, then advances towards the front door, torch and rapier in hand.


Human (Valerian)Rogue (scoundrel) 1 | HP: 7/16 | AC: 15, TAC: 12 | F: +3, R: +7, W: +6 | Perc: +6 Society +5 Deception/Diplomacy/Intimidation +7 | Speed 25ft | Hero Points: 1/1 | | Active conditions:

I imagine Blake isn't up yet. I'm patient, just posting in case I've missed something.

@Adair: I hope your recovery is swift.

Blake waits, watchful, ready, and keeping his impulses in check.

Blake keeps watching, even as the Novan nears him.

Blake will give Sakima a little more time before acting.

He will take the time to keep aware of his surroundings.

What other wonders has Cleos set me up to see in these strange lands?


Human (Valerian)Rogue (scoundrel) 1 | HP: 7/16 | AC: 15, TAC: 12 | F: +3, R: +7, W: +6 | Perc: +6 Society +5 Deception/Diplomacy/Intimidation +7 | Speed 25ft | Hero Points: 1/1 | | Active conditions:

This land is filled with the bizarre!, thinks Blake as he seeks concealment behind a stout tree, rapier in hand.

Do we roll stealth +5 or perception +6 ?


Human (Valerian)Rogue (scoundrel) 1 | HP: 7/16 | AC: 15, TAC: 12 | F: +3, R: +7, W: +6 | Perc: +6 Society +5 Deception/Diplomacy/Intimidation +7 | Speed 25ft | Hero Points: 1/1 | | Active conditions:

Blake suddenly sees Sakima's face illuminated when the light appears on the Novan's spear, surprising him.

My word!

Blake does however continue with the others, driven to see this through.

"He may well need spiritual aid. But I would see what the medicines of Terra Nova can do for him. Let us be off!"

"Blake Fleming. This man was brought in after the Black Hearts struck him down. Can you aid him?"


Human (Valerian)Rogue (scoundrel) 1 | HP: 7/16 | AC: 15, TAC: 12 | F: +3, R: +7, W: +6 | Perc: +6 Society +5 Deception/Diplomacy/Intimidation +7 | Speed 25ft | Hero Points: 1/1 | | Active conditions:

Earlier, Blake swiftly retrieved his pack and made sure to keep up with the Novans.

Too interestimg to miss! And that man does need aid.

He knocks on the door, unless soneone beats him to it.


Human (Valerian)Rogue (scoundrel) 1 | HP: 7/16 | AC: 15, TAC: 12 | F: +3, R: +7, W: +6 | Perc: +6 Society +5 Deception/Diplomacy/Intimidation +7 | Speed 25ft | Hero Points: 1/1 | | Active conditions:

Once we're in a sub-thread, can we still keep an eye on the hub? Or do we stay off the thread until we return to the White Wolf IC?

It's an interesting premise and the players are keen.

Blake addresses Adair and the other Novans.

"These Black Hearts, these Ra-Kep-Noth, why would they take halflings?"

Selina wrote:
Selina seems quite afraid of the pair of Novans. She points at them with a trembling finger. "It was those strange Novans. They took Melvern and I and held us against our will. That man," she indicates the wounded, poisoned fellow lying prone on the ground still. "He rescued us from their clutches and took that serious wound in the process." She stands on tiptoe and whispers something in Blake's ear.
Adair wrote:

"You are outside the White Wolf. The short ones are safe. They blame the man who saved your life for kidnapping them and nearly killing you. We need to get you to Lilith. She may help against the poison."

He taps Sakima's arm pointing at the blood trail with his chin once he has the man's attention.

Blake chimes in.

"Blake Fleming.", he says, mostly looking at the wounded man and the second Novan.

"The halflings are quite safe here. I would have your names, and knowledge of what happened out there. From what I understand, it was Novans who struck you as you rescued the halflings.", he continues, glancing at Adair and the second Novan with curiosity.

"I would have the truth, and know whom can be trusted in these parts."

It's quite the sign when there a dozen posts in a gameplay thread overnight!


Human (Valerian)Rogue (scoundrel) 1 | HP: 7/16 | AC: 15, TAC: 12 | F: +3, R: +7, W: +6 | Perc: +6 Society +5 Deception/Diplomacy/Intimidation +7 | Speed 25ft | Hero Points: 1/1 | | Active conditions:

Events move quickly, and Blake finds himself with a frightened halfling woman behind his legs and strangely-dressed Novans chanting over the wounded man.

A peculiar place. But an exciting one!

He turns his head towards the halfling lady behind him and says:

"Hello there! I am Blake Fleming. I would have your name and knowledge of what befell you and the other two there."


Human (Valerian)Rogue (scoundrel) 1 | HP: 7/16 | AC: 15, TAC: 12 | F: +3, R: +7, W: +6 | Perc: +6 Society +5 Deception/Diplomacy/Intimidation +7 | Speed 25ft | Hero Points: 1/1 | | Active conditions:

Blake stands and claps at the bard's performance!

"Bravo! Bravo!"

And then the halflings enter.

Bringing trouble no doubt!

The elf responds more swiftly. Blake saunters over.

"Whatever is the commotion here? What happened?" he asks, curious.


Human (Valerian)Rogue (scoundrel) 1 | HP: 7/16 | AC: 15, TAC: 12 | F: +3, R: +7, W: +6 | Perc: +6 Society +5 Deception/Diplomacy/Intimidation +7 | Speed 25ft | Hero Points: 1/1 | | Active conditions:

"I am here now and again. I am known as Adair. My first thought was that a new people in the area would make things interesting. Then I heard about your destructive and oppressive nature, until finally I had to come see it for myself. The stories did not do your people justice."

Heh. And that wasn't mean that they overstated the problem!

Oh, I don't doubt it. ;)

"We certainly are a great deal more than mere vandals!", replies Blake, chuckling and glad that this foreign elf can see as such.

"While things are chaotic right now, New Valeria is set for greatness. Even with the Morgath fanatics somewhere down south! Tell me, have they wreaked much havoc around here?"

Starting to take his leave of the bar, the elf stops as the fiddler starts up. When the self-important human praised her, the elf quickly raised his chin before commenting, "Yes. It feels like she has more to share than this.

No. I have not seen her here before."

Blake nods, then speaks with a smile, the smile of a man enjoying himself:

"I see! I take it that you are something of a regular yourself? And one of the Terra Novan 'elves' at that! I would have your name, and what you make of all of the humans showing up."

Blake enters the White Wolf and stops for a moment to look around. He sees a troop of dwarves, a red-haired woman mounting the stage, an elven man (oddly enough) standing at the bar. He also notices the presence of more than a few native Ionians here. At first glance, he sees no one who outranks him on the social scale, just as he likes it, and he saunters up to the bar, standing near, but not next to the elf.

A pair of serving girls, one strawberry-haired the other dark, hustle drinks around the common room which appears exceptionally busy. Many drinks are still full, indicating someone has just bought a round for the house.

When he can get the attention of the barkeep, Cartwright looks at him and gives a small bow. "Milord, you honor us by breaking bread here. What's your pleasure?" Those within earshot hear the thick brogue of the the bartender disappear as he address on of the peerage.

Blake takes off his backpack and places it on a seat, then places his posterior on one adjacent.

"Greetings to your good self, innkeeper! I am Blake Fleming - yes, *those* Flemings. I would have the pleasure of your name, the price of a room, a plate of your best food, and one of whatever is in that round!"

Once the red-haired figure starts playing, he pays more than half an ear of listening to the tune.

Whomever is left at the bar. Adair?

"She's pretty good!", he will note to whomever is closest at that moment, as the bartender is likely fulfilling his order. "Is she a regular here?"

The front door opens, and in strides a man of average height and a blazing grin. He could be moving faster, the pack on his pack and his fine rapier combine to weigh him down. But this does not impact his good cheer.

Anyone looking might notice that his skin is pale even for a Valerian's, his dirty blonde hair is finely combed, and that his equipment all seems very new.

He keeps grinning and looks about him for just a moment, seeing what he can see, before approaching the bar.

GM:

Does Blake pick up anything from reading the room? With say the Streetwise feat and A Society roll?
