Spoiler:
Well, they're Sczarni, and they may or may not be indebted to another gang or are perhaps owed favors by another gang. Give the party a reward - they earned it - but maybe a week later they can hear that The Tower Girls were released from custody the next day. With a little digging, if they're so interested, it's possible they'll find out the city made a profit on the venture. And now you have a recurring villain opportunity.

Well...even though I'm naked, I guarantee the spoiler won't reveal anything like that...

I'd say 1000gp would be fair, and the watch would probably be glad to have them off the streets.

If you're up for more intrigue...iirc the Sczarni are fairly influential. What if they also offered a little "favor" to the party for "good business practice" left to DM's discretion for if they get in over their heads?

Wow. Nice dilemma! ;P

Well, as I see it, you have two ways this could go,...

Spoiler:

(Before you give an award), IS the city grateful? I mean REALLY grateful? ;P

Either the big-wigs running the city are genuinely extremely grateful to the PC's for taking out even a a minor gang, and thank them for solving some of the crime problems in their fair city,...

Or is it a case of 'We knew who they are and where they were. IF we wanted to take them out we would have done so ourselves!'

Meaning they are either afraid that with this gang out of commission, an even WORSE gang might rise to take its place, ending up with even worse problems than the Tower Girls even made.

OR (Some or all) of the officials, (Whether local constabulary, or certain members of the city council), are actually upset about it, because they were getting a cut of the Tower Girls illicit activities. And now they have less income.

I mean, it IS a big city, SOME of the big-wigs SOMEWHERE in the line are corrupt. Even in a Lawful society. (See, NEW ORLEANS) ;P

You can always mix and match.
Most are genuinely surprised and grateful for the cleaning out of a small gang. But a couple were taking a cut, and are upset. So the Council rewards them, but some bureaucrats keep the actual reward small, (citing lack of funds, or lack of proper bounty-hunting licenses, or taking their own cut, etc) :)

This can also set up for future RP, as the 'offended' parties can now be a thorn in the side of the PC's, slowing down official requests, re-routing information so it gets to or from them slower than it should. (Even ONE night spent in the hoosegow over a misunderstanding with guards, due to refusing to wake the judge/city council, can be devastating to PC's trying to race the clock.). ;D

Um,.. yeah, I MIGHT be over-thinking this a little.
I tend to do that. ;)

Anyway, there's 2 CP worth for ya to chew on! :)
Curious, let us know what you do!

So, what sets NobodysHome off?

Everyone in the family knows that I know where stuff is, and, as I constantly remind them, given 24 hours' notice I can dig up practically anything they need.

So in the morning, as they're about to go out the door, they suddenly say, "Oh, NobodysHome! I need this right now or I'm going to be late/lose credit/whatever!"

And yeah.
(1) I'm at work, and I'm not taking time off work to help you search for YOUR missing item
(2) If you'd even told me LAST NIGHT, I could have found it for you

The whole last-minute, "I can't find xxx and it's all your fault" is soooooo beyond tiresome...

Best Hermione quote from Sunday's game.

The PC's kill the Boss Naga.
In addition to its other loot (which includes a Headband of Alluring Charisma +4, so it's not like the book is loot-poor), the naga is wearing a Hand of Glory around its neck.

WW says, "WHOA. How much is that worth?"

Me: "No, you can't have that. You're the good guys. You burn it with the rest of the naga bodies."

WW: "But I could use it for GOOD."

Hermione: "Papa, that's what Boromir said about the ring, but it ended up driving him mad."

this is perfect.

SS:
So, the mayor of Magnimar is horrifically corrupt, but...
(1) The Tower Girls were a grand total of 14 cat burglars in a city of 16,000 residents. They weren't exactly "influential"
(2) They had also broken off with (and were at war with) a much larger, much more influential Sczarni gang that specialized in brokering secrets. Which would be a FAR more likely gang for the city to be "chummy" with

So I think it's far more likely that the city is more than happy to take the girls in, then they start having "accidents" while in custody, and the party is left with the dilemma as to whether or not to rescue them.

I like that.

Of course he was only saved from going off the road at Deadman's Curve by the timely intervention of Scott Bakula.

So, being somewhat OC, I kept track of all of Impus Major's driving minutes.

His grand total before getting his license was about 33 hours, all with me. The 50-hour requirements I've seen have all been for 16-year-old drivers; typically if you wait until you're 18 you get to waive them. Because we all know how MUCH more mature 18-year-olds are than 16-year-olds. *SIGH*

But of those 33 hours, maybe 1 was in the rain, and 0 were at night. That's the problem with a daytime test and no requirements at all.

I didn't have alcohol/drug problems as a kid...but I might have been a problem child when it came to anything with an engine and wheels.

Let's just say that the behind-the-wheel portion of my Driver's Ed class was extraordinarily easy for me due to many, many hours of "practice" and "borrowing" of cars.

Saddles are a modern invention. NH simply climbed up on its back and tamed it, being thrown off 3 or 4 times. I think his ancestors rode the great mythosaur or something.

Welp...had a panic attack about leaving my house for work this morning.

I don't know if I mentioned apparently I have agoraphobia, per my therapist and doc.

I just freaked the f~*& out for a couple hours about preasure to take care of my family, and not lose a good job, and so on and so forth. I'll spare the details, but it wasn't pleasant. I called out due to a personal emergency, as I put it. Not a lie.

But this is how I lost every good job I've had...and most of the s$%@ty ones. I even was doing great with the post office a couple years ago when I got too anxious to even go down my stairs of my building.

I think they put it best in the new Joker movie: the problem with having a mental disorder is everyone expects you to act like you don't.

Need some advice on Shattered Star, and the AP threads are apparently dead now that PF 2 is out:

** spoiler omitted **

SS:
I like the idea that the city gives an award.

A thousand g is a nice bounty for sixteen baddies (62.5g per head), but it might be a tad high. I might recommend 800 (50 g per head) - not for balance reasons, but because it seems a little more like what a city like Magnimar might actually pay for a troublesome, but not super-troublesome gang.
(You could posit that the extra 200 is a "bonus" for taking the whole gang, but the - slightly - reduced* reward, could also sway the PCs into helping the Tower Girls (see below).

* (Relatively reduced; the PCs wouldn't necessarily know it was bigger, before, but the smaller number might not have quite the impact the extra zero does.)

If you opt for the more-involved and morally complex option of Sczarni murdering them after-the-fact, you should have the girls actually mention this to the players first and probably even ask for help. This second option puts the situation forward into the players' minds (rather than just hoping they figure out for themselves) and even if they waive it off as deception or are convinced by someone else that it's a lie ("Can't trust a stinkin' rat, ya know?"), the fact that they've mentioned it means that later the PCs are more likely to notice when they go missing or "have accidents" and such.

Because your players are being awesome, I strongly recommend you don't just 'punish' them by killing the 'Girls outright - at least not without solid warnings, first. Also, it might help if the players/PCs have a contact in the watch - whoever oversees the initial transfer, awards them the funds, or whatever - who is genuine and not corrupt or cruel, and may even act to help the PCs rescue the Tower Girls, or outright turn down the offer of turning them in (if they understand the corruption).

As for what the girls can offer the PCs... not much, really, if I recall. And, honestly, the PCs might not have much they can do with or for the girls.

It's been a while, but one possibility (if they opt to rescue the girls or decide not to turn them over) is to take them into the Lady's Light in book two. While this doesn't do anything, really, at first, it could be a way of trying to get the 'Girls on "the right path" so to speak, by channeling their skill into being adventurers. Having the girls on the adventure could well aid in traps and some combat (yeah, it makes one dungeon slightly trivial, but hold on! Ideas coming!), and there are at least two solid outcomes for the 'Girls: one is having them decide to actually move into the Lady's Light ("I mean, it's free real estate.") which could be a recurrent feature, later; another is having them hook up with heheh, I said 'hook up with' Cressidia and the Gray Maidens there.

Either way, after clearing the dungeon, the 'Girls are removed; the players get a reward in the form of a single easy dungeon (where you can spring the clone trap on a PC, one of the Tower Girls, or no one), and you potentially give the PCs an invested reason to ally with (or at least free) the Gray Maidens in part two. The "Tower Girls" can still live up to their name, if they inhabit the Lady's Light, or would fit in well with the Gray Maidens (bringing much-needed rogue-skills to that group and receive much-needed discipline and life's purpose... which would help Cressidia as well).

If you're not sure how to sell this latter idea, if any of the PCs have a god that likes to give cryptic hints or signs, it could be a thing. Alternatively, have an imp (they're lousy with imps in Korvosa - one could have escaped and fled here for any number of reasons) who used its commune SLA and somehow got an answer related to this fly in and tell the PCs something. Maybe the imp works for a devil that wants to use benevolence to somehow push malevolence; maybe the imp is just contracted by some sort of oracular watch group; or maybe the imp is on the run and has discovered the PCs are its most likely chance at survival (again, that commune covers a host of sins). Heck, doesn't even have to be clear that it's an imp - a strange and mysterious voice from an invisible stranger can lead to all sorts of plot hooks in the future.

As for the larger, more powerful group, I don't remember what role they play in the adventure, but you could tie the imp's fate (or whatever informs the PCs, if you go that route) to that organization: if destroyed (or simply inconvenienced in certain ways, or whatever) the imp (or whatever) lives; if it remains undisturbed it is likely to end in the imp's (or whatever) destruction (or whatever).

I have always been a fan of letting the PCs take foes alive without forcing them to be villains later just for drama (though the drama can be good, too); alternatively, they can still be "villains"... just not villains of the PCs' story, as they are now allies of the PCs (or otherwise uninterested in tangling with the PCs).

I also want to tie a Rakshasa in here somehow for some reason - my instinct keeps telling me to - but I can't find out why or how. So...
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Anyway, there are some ideas. Hope they help, even if you use none of them!

So, here's a really good example of how differently NobodysHome thinks from the rest of the world.

There's a nice, heartwarming article about Sia trying to go undercover to buy Thanksgiving groceries for people. It's a really awesome act, and one of the reasons I love her.

And then a fan called her out and exposed her to everyone, blowing her cover and ending the charade... and costing people THOUSANDS in grocery bills, as well as utterly ruining Sia's feel-good moment.

And I am more appalled at the fan's behavior than pleased at Sia's.

Hey, fans! If a celebrity is trying to move through society undercover, then leave them the **** alone and let them do it, ESPECIALLY when they're out being awesome.

Grr... Stupid fans!!

More Shattered Star:

You could also allow the PCs to work with the Tower Girls to help reform them and get their aid in general tasks. Tying them to the Pathfinder Lodge somehow or some other organization - or even taking over themselves, but not for crime - and allow the ‘Girls to live in the city, acting as a pseudo Leadership feat, but just with the Tower Girls and shared by the entire group; or perhaps they are trained and become Pathfinders themselves.

Ah! Lots of neat ideas to go with for them... I’m out of time to write more, though...

living in NY, we TEND to have an unspoken agreement with most stars. If they are dressed normally and look as haggard as you do, the rule of thumb is to leave them be. If they are looking more like themselves and seem upbeat, give them a hey. If they are dressed the nines and arent in a hurry/dont seem to be in a hurry, fan out(within reason).

Do you current employer knows that you are suffering from anxiety issues and does your work would accommodate for use of some emergency anti-anxiety medication (aka something you could use to abate panic attack as needed as opposed to using it regularly to prevent them) - I don't remember if your current work involves driving, only that some of the previous ones included driving, or similar activities that could be influenced by use of psychiatric drugs?

I’ve contemplated getting a rubberized keyboard many times, but figure it has a shorter lifespan and that isn’t worse than the hypothetical ability to roll it up and hypothetical immunity to spilled drinks/crumbs/etc. might indicate. So far.

Have you been logging this behavior? It can't be legal - it seems like inhumane working conditions. You may be due extra compensation, somehow. I know you need to be cautious (worker's rights; employee's power) but forcing you to pull all-nighter's (or even "sleep-at-work"-'ers) multiple times for someone else's incompetence does not seem like a valid or okay thing in the slightest.

If I were you, I'd begin keeping a log of some kind somewhere. In my opinion which has all the legal weight of a wet noodle; discuss things with a real person who actually knows what they're doing I don't think it has to be anything fancy: a cheapo disposable camera with a date-stamp and a note-pad should do it. Each time you're required to do the thing, take a picture to prove you're working there and/or write it down.
(If you have a smart phone, you can take screen shots of your phone's time/date display, as well as show which timezone your clock adheres to by screenshot; as these will automatically be sorted by actual date taken instead of perceived date taken, you can mostly prove what the actual time/date of said events was.)

If the behavior continues to excess (which it might already be, but I mean, if you have the means to prove it) you might be able to acquire something as a result. I'm not recommending you sue anyone, though if your lawyer thinks that's reasonable, then maybe. But, rather, sometimes a company just doesn't realize exactly how much they've come to rely on an employee, or how much they're pushing that employee, and something like this might help.

And even if they have some excuse about how much money the job costs them v. what they can pay, they need to realize that you've got needs - even if they can't grant extra cash, they might be able to make the job better or improve the perks somehow. I don't know - I'm not an activist, scholar of workers rights, or legal anything; I'm just wanting a friend to have a good life with a worthy employer who treats them well he says, even though he's married to a teacher who's required by law to be treated poorly on the job* because that's just how teachers are.

I'm sorry, my dude. I do hope it's an okay night. God bless you, and be well.

*:
This is a joke. Well, the required-by-law part is, anyway. But I've known waaaayyyyy too many teachers. None of them are paid what they deserve and none of them are treated with the respect or given the help they need and deserve for their job. My wife loves her job. My mother does, too. My sisters, my father, and I (when I taught) loved the job and loved the kids. But. It really iiiiiiiiiisssss-another topic altogether, so I'm ending this off-topic rant and going back to supporting my buddy while removing this to spoiler taaaaaags.


A good video on Imposter Syndrome

Back in my day, Driver's Ed was how to sit in the saddle and hold the reins properly, and determine the age of your vehicle by the condition of its teeth...

NH, how did you get the saddle on the woolly mammoth in the first place? :p
Saddles are a modern invention. NH simply climbed up on its back and tamed it, being thrown off 3 or 4 times. I think his ancestors rode the great mythosaur or something.
NH invented the saddle by climbing up on the mammoth, siezing and throttling a giant pterosaur, then draping it over the mammoth's back and sitting on it, accompanied by Raquel Welch in a tiger hide bikini.
Before, or after, she does this dance number?

We all know the EL for a Monstrous Spider, but what about Monstrous Spider + Slinky Disco Temptress?

Oh dear lord.

I was just in Walmart, which, at the holidays, is a circle of hell all to itself, and they were playing this terrible bubble gum pop cover of Wizzard's "I wizh it could be Christmas everyday," and I'm looking for a way to blame it on Limey, since without him, I wouldn't have recognized it for the horror it is and might have rolled a better saving throw to tune it out.

Just be glad it wasn't a maudlin, half-speed acoustic piano version, featuring Celine Dion and the man Bublé duetting over the top.
