4E [Adventure] Murder Most Foul! Part 2 (Judge: EvolutionKB)

Vex wakes up when Knoepf heals her (1 hit point).

Malehan searches the room, but the only valuables that he finds are on the bodies of his dead companions.

The altar is gone, it vanished when Ladoran died. Except for the desiccated body of Ladoran and the few soldiers and the weapons/armor they were carrying, there isn't anything in this room.

"Knoepf, you gave everything you had. We all have. In the end, we were both at one blow of killing each other. I had my God on my side and that's the reason why some of us survive. Ladoran wanted to use my soul for his ritual." Malehan continue to search the room for any hidden door. "That bastard was strong, no shame to die in battle against such worthy foe."

[SBLOCK=OOC]Is there any other exit that the one we came by? Or secret door (Malehan would search for them).[/SBLOCK]

The woman wont respond to my healing Malehan. Perhaps there is something around her that might help out in curing her. Knoepf searches the room for other doors, existing or hidden.

The three remaining teammates see a set of double doors on the side of the room where Sloane escaped.


OOC: You guys have proven what I've known for a long time. You do not read what I write. :lol:

The following sentence was at the end of every single encounter NPC round post for 19 rounds:

"Note: there is a set of double doors at the south central part of the map which might be not easy to notice right away."

The double doors have also been on 19+ maps. ;)

OOC: Hey, cut Knoepf some slack, he was dying a couple of days ago


Malehan, should we rest a bit? Sloane went through that door. We may have to face her again. before we are done her.

"I am the most fit to met Sloane and she would eat me in one bite. Yeah, we should find a place and rest. Maybe we should go back somewhere else. We could leave and come back another day... honestly, we could never come back and it would be fine too. Ladoran have been killed, the job is done after all."

With the death of the Dragon, the threat to the city is removed. The team enters through the double doors expecting to find Sloane, but she is nowhere to be found. They do find a small dragon hoard. It looks like it was well organized in neat little piles, but that the symmetry of the piles is disturbed. It's possible that Sloane helped herself to some of the treasure before fleeing.

OOC: Ok, as DM I am stepping in here (in my other PBP game, the PCs have on multiple occasions walked away from the treasure without knowing it as well).

This adventure is over with the death of Ladoran, I was just waiting for the remaining members of the team to walk through the double doors and find Ladoran's treasure vault. I was going to do a little RPing with his servant to tie up a few loose ends, but with the PCs talking about leaving and holing up, it's time to cut to the chase.

I'll be assigning treasure parcels and XP sometime later this week. Acre and Garrick can be raised if their players so desire. The team can take them to a House Jorasco enclave where it costs 500 GP to be raised.

[SBLOCK=OOC]Thanks. OOC talking, I was expecting there was no danger, but IC talking, Malehan might be sometimes reckless but not suicidal. Half the team is dead, the others have difficulty standing on their feet and the job is done.

Let's roleplay it a bit...[/SBLOCK]

"OK, prepare Garrick, Acre and the woman to be carried out of here. I'll just take a quick look of what behind those doors. If Sloane appears, leave everyone behind and run with Vex."

Silently, Malehan slowly move the door. Seeing and dead end without any danger and some treasure, he turns around and tells to Vex and Knoepf "Pay time it seems. Ladoran's hoard is there. Let's hoard it quickly and leave once and for all. Sloane must have fled through the walls. No hope to chase her today and we don't want to be here if she come back quickly. Let's head in the upper level, where we can rest without fearing to have a dagger in you back."

Knoepf prepares the bodies for transport. Then in a raised voice. This is no victory for you Sloane. We killed you're ally! One day I'll be back to kill you as well! His body trembles in rage as he speaks.

Knoepf only hears empty silence in return. Sloane is probably long gone.

I was going to wait to hand out XP until I had parcels picked out, but my nights are not my own at the moment, so I'm having a hard time posting. I'll need to get one of the judges to approve this:


XP in Part 2

Encounter 1: 1100

1000 2 Minotaur Warriors (level 10)
200 Hobgoblin Warchief (level 5)
400 2 Gnoll Huntmasters (level 5)
600 3 Bladebearer Hobgoblins (level 5)

Half experience since the fight was interrupted. The PCs didn't technically overcome the challenge.


Encounter 2: 400

400 Avoiding fight with Goblin workers


Encounter 3: 1150

400 Genasi Stormmaster (level 9)
400 2 Eladrin Arcane Archers (level 5)
350 Hazard, Extremely Long Room (level 5)


Encounter 4: 2800

1500 Ladoran, Young Blue Dragon (level 7 solo, level 6 solo plus 1 class template level)
800 Sloane, Pale Reaver Lord (level 8 elite, level 7 elite plus 1 level for special abililties)
500 4 Mithrendain Guards (level 2)
-200 Lady (level 5 NPC helper)
75 Obstacle Trap, Falling Iron Portcullis (level 7 minion)
125 Hazard Trap, Altar (level 2)


Total XP = 5450 * 2 (LEB double XP) / 5 PCs = 2180 XP each

This is 87% of a level, so 4 PCs out of 5 gain a parcel.

Since Otakkun has more or less disappeared, I'll be awarding a parcel to all of the PCs except Garrick. Garrick will be eligible for an award in his next adventure quickly if he is raised from the dead, or if he spends RP to level up in which case I will award him a parcel.


The PCs also have 11 months of PC reward points.

So if anyone levels up two levels, I'll hand out a second parcel. Just let me know.

ooc: knoepf will advance to lvl 7 after cashing a couple of his some RP. I'll give the exact number in a later post. I just wanted to let you know what lvl he'll be. Also, he is due for any parcel since he finished a round of treasure parcels last lvl. How about an N+4 (lvl 11) item for Knoepf.

Thanks for the adventure KD

You're welcome! :)


No level 11 item for Knoepf if he is only going to level 7 from 6. In that case, he gets a level 6 parcel which maxes at 6+4=10.

Knoepf should currently have 3750 XP (4th level) plus 3823 XP (part 1) plus 2180 XP (part 2) = 9753 XP (10,000 needed for level 7, so 3 RP needed) and 7 RP (part 1) plus 11 RP (part 2) = 18 RP

If he goes to level 8, it would be 9753 XP plus 13 RP. He could then get a 7th level parcel / 11th level N+4 item. He would also get a 6th level parcel. Any ideas?

OOC: Yes, do the level 8 route please. I was going to do the math later but you beat me to the punch. Thank you. I'll take a n+3 for lvl 6 and an N+4 for level 7. So, that's a lvl 9 item and a lvl 11 item correct?

[SBLOCK=OOC]I don't care which parcel you give me. Just give me something that is not useless. You can look at the wishlist, but I don't require the DM to follow it, they are just suggestions, as long as it is usefull, I will be happy.[/SBLOCK]

OOC:
Thank you for the adventure! You run a tough-but-fair game. Sorry my participation couldn't have been better - busy life for me these days.

Acre does have quite the zest for life, so I'm sure he would appreciate it were he brought back...
