Assuming that drops Orange:

Still chanting, Chamius advances into the room over the bodies of the fallen before trying to trip Green.

Trip attempt, incl. inspire: 1d20 + 6 + 1 ⇒ (15) + 6 + 1 = 22

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

Ordinarily I'd don't like to repeat efforts, but in the case of a goblin fight I'll make an exception. The Taldan clears his throat and declaims, in a mocking tone, "Goblin squeak and goblin chatter/Goblin suck at rhyming patter/Goblin wail and goblin boast/We be killers! You be toast!"

Inspire courage, +1/+1.

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

Chamius stays to the rear, letting the more capable combatants go ahead of him as he mulls over how to phrase his next inspiring bit of oratory.

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

"Nice job." Chamius follows the rest of the party into the armory.

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

If it was that obvious that they were unfriendly, then Chamius would start out trying to improve their attitude before asking the question about Hjort.

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

"They're acting rather hostile. Best be ready, hey?" In a louder voice, the bard replies, "Name's Chamius Lune."

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

"They're wearing Castellan Darkwine's badge, so they're likely his personal guards. Let's talk first, hey?"

The Taldan raises his voice and calls out, "Evening! We're looking for a fellow named Hjort, and we were told that he'd be hereabouts. Have you seen him?"

Diplomacy check: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (14) + 10 = 24

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

Yeah, let's do this. Two stars.

Knowledge (Local) reroll: 1d20 + 6 + 2 ⇒ (14) + 6 + 2 = 22

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

It would help if our Skald speakers could translate what they were saying.

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

"Here, he sounds honest enough. Let's get the armory sharpish, hey?"

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

While Chamius waits for a reply, he recovers his whip from the floor and dusts it off.

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

Sense Motive check: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (18) + 10 = 28

The bard listens carefully to the panicked man, alert for signs of deceit.

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

Call it a held attack, then, in case one of them comes in reach.

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

Chamius' inspirational oratory is still audible over the clamor of the battle. He draws his rapier and stabs at the nearest foe.

Rapier attack, including inspiration: 1d20 + 5 + 1 ⇒ (13) + 5 + 1 = 19
Rapier damage, if applicable, including inspiration: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (1) + 1 = 2

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

The Taldan bard continues his inspiring chant as he backs away from the axe-wielding thug. He tries to entangle the thug's legs, but his whip is caught in the press and he has to drop it to keep from being pulled over.

Whip trip attempt: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (1) + 6 = 7

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

Chamius begins to recite, "We've come unto a tavern/The Horned Helm by name/Stand up to fight a mighty throng/And add unto our fame!"

Inspire Courage; +1 to hit & damage.

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

Chamius is where he should be.

Once some of the more militant members of the party are in the near vicinity:

"Excuse me--you're Hjort? I've heard you have some tales to tell. Can I buy you a drink?"

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

Chamius claps Jordun on one shoulder. "While they're watching the suli, let's go have a chat with Hjort, hey?"

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

This will doubtless not end well. Chamius follows the other two inside.

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

"Setting miscreants straight sounds like a fine thing for you to do. I'll cheer you on from back here, if you don't mind." In reply to BJB's request for help, Chamius shakes his head. "Not I, said the little not-so-red bard. Perhaps I should learn the skill at some point, hey?"

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

Chamius nods approvingly. "You should take the lead, I'm thinking."

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

"Well, we've got a gnome to talk to. He's not exactly thrilled to be here, so perhaps we can take him back to Absalom with us when we finish here. I'll do the talking, at least to start with. Something tells me that he might be put off by a bunch of fierce fighters, hey? Unless one of you speaks Sylvan?"

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

Another Knowledge (Local) check?

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

When Chamius recalls what he's heard about the guard, he once again turns to the tengu. "She's not going to respond well to compliments on her appearance, and I'm afraid I may say something untoward. Would you mind speaking with her? Compliment her on her skill, as fellow warriors."

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

Knowledge (Local) check: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (15) + 6 = 21

"Rafarta...that name sounds familiar."

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

Chamius stands back and, knowing the quality of their blade training, lets the tengus do the talking.

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

Out of view of the woman, Chamius rolls his eyes. Arvida was the saga writer, not Kadlin.

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

Before approaching her, Chamius murmurs to the others, "Perhaps it might be better if one of you puts the touch on her. She doesn't seem like the sort that would be impressed by my, ah, sterling vocal qualities, hey?"

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

The bard shakes his head with a slight sardonic smile as he realizes what he has to do. Typical. Then he approaches the woman. He doesn't look at her directly, but instead signals the barkeep. Once he has the publican's attention, he passes over appropriate coinage. "One for her--whatever she wants."

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

"A fellow artist! I only know a bit about the great sagas of this land, and to truly understand them I'll have to learn the language. I digress, though. Is there anything we can do to help you find your notes? Afterwards, maybe you could help us, hey?"

Diplomacy check to gather information: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (20) + 10 = 30

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

No problem with that, either. I'm getting home from my camping trip tonight, and will finally have consistent non-phone access to the boards again.

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

Fine with me. I'm going to be camping through the 11th and only able to access the boards with my phone.

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

Diplomacy checks, add +10 to each roll: 5d20 ⇒ (11, 11, 20, 11, 4) = 57

The Taldan takes a few silvers and goes out looking for people who might be forthcoming with information for the price of a drink or three.

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

Chamius has Diplomacy +10 and Knowledge (Local) +6. Where's everyone else?

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

As the echoes of the boulder's passage die away, Chamius stops his inspirational poetry and shakes his head. "I'm not at all sure that she's in any condition to answer our questions, hey?"

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

Chamius continues his inspiring words and scoops up his whip, remaining near the chest to protect it as best he can.

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

"Truth in trials/There is found
Fortune frowns/Where weakness waxes
Strongly stand/To turn the tide!"

Chamius has another go at tripping green, but has to drop his whip to keep from being pulled off balance himself. The irony of the contrast between that and his staves is not lost on him.

Whip trip attempt, including inspiration: 1d20 + 6 + 1 ⇒ (1) + 6 + 1 = 8

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

Keeping up a steady stream of staves, Chamius takes a quick step left and tries to trip the green Ulfen.

Whip trip attempt, including inspiration: 1d20 + 6 + 1 ⇒ (3) + 6 + 1 = 10

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

Don't forget that Chamius just started inspire courage, so that's a universal adjustment/condition.

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

I think Chamius acts before anyone else, which may help with things.

The Taldan taps out a simple beat, then chants to it:

"Proud Pathfinders/Strong in struggle
"Come and quench/The cravings of crows!"

Inspire courage; everyone take a +1 morale bonus to hit and to damage.

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

I put Chamius in the middle, because he's the weakest of the party.

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

Untrained Heal check: 1d20 ⇒ 1

Chamius shrugs. "Well, we did what we could, hey? Not our fault that things went sideways. I daresay, I don't look forward to telling the Venture-Captain that we couldn't finish things up due to the apparent demise of the recipient." He sighs. "Though Dreng--or his assistant, and I don't mind saying I don't trust him--will likely ask us some questions about what happened, so I suppose we'd better try to find out."

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

Chamius is using his cold-weather gear. With a 10 STR, he's not going to contribute much to carrying the chest.

"Here, can we get a wagon with detachable runners for snow travel?"

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

Oh, my. We have a menagerie. "Keep in mind that wandering about in tropical gear, even if you have magic to save you, will be seen as unusual. I advise furs for appearance's sake."

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

"As you may infer from the location of our destination, be prepared to deal with temperatures well below freezing during the nights. The people there also tend to be rather, shall we say, reserved around strangers. As Pathfinders, I fear we are stranger than most, so this may lend an additional complication to our task." The excessively voluble bard turns to Dreng. "I don't suppose you have some sort of safe-passage token from this Skagni person, hmmm?"

Note to self: research Linnorm poetic forms before departure.

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

Untrained Knowledge (Geography) check: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (19) + 2 = 21

A tall, lanky Taldan human in a chain shirt taps out a quick and complex rhythm on the table as he considers. "I happen to be a mite familiar with the geography of the area. Good thing, as otherwise I have little to offer such an august group as yourselves--little more than lore and rhymes." Next to him, a pack sits on the floor; its only unusual feature is a djembe tied carefully to one side. "I'll likely need to unearth my old cold-weather gear from Goka for this trip."

Sovereign Court

Male Human Bard/3 HP 24/24 AC17/T 12/FF 15 Fort +3/Ref +5/ Will +3 Init +2 Perc +6|Sense Motive +10*

I'm going to be traveling the next few days. (Any of you live near Albuquerque?)
