a torch is better than a swarm of kobolds! And it is not an overtly aggressive act... let’s try some diplomacy, and see where it takes us Theremin thinks to himself.
He then says in the common tongue: “we are many, and have successfully quelled the kobold leaders. Identify yourselves so we may show mercy

Mindra is surprised by the flying torch and squints against the sudden brightness. Fearing a possible attack she keeps her bow pointed at the doorway.

OOC: Mindra is prepared to shoot the first creature that comes out of the doorway

Owyn starts at the sound of non-kobold speech. He was about to rush in, but holds back. Still cautious of a threat.

"You're not kobolds? Well that changes things, I am Owyn Karnigran, have you some mission with these disreputable lizards?"
 

Steve Gorak

Explorer
Theremin chuckles “I think we feel the same way about about the lizards!” He steps out, his crossbow lowered, one hand raised in greeting. He continues “I am Theremin of Keltarin. My friends and I are here to find a lost merchant. We think we found her cart outside the tower and faced some kobolds on higher levels”.

Owyn smiled cheekily in response. He sheathed his sword and stepped into the light. "Should have checked the basement. We nearly left ourselves while you were up here. Good thing I wanted to make sure it was safe to go out the front."

Mindra lowers her bow. "Well met, Owyn. Stranger things than missing merchants and kobolds have recently occurred. I'm afraid that if you look outside you will not see what you expect... And this tower has miraculously rebuilt itself... Or we are in a different tower... That looks to be the same tower, but slightly darker... And not broken."

Mindra shakes her head with a grimace. "I guess we really have no idea of what is going on, but getting out of here and back to town would probably go a long way to answering some questions."

"Interesting. Unfortunately, to my shame, I cannot say what it was like on the way in as I was unconscious. Still not quite sure how they pulled it off, but I woke up in the dungeon with Butrea here in the next cell. Fortunately, they underestimated my abilities. Still, I would rather some assistance in exiting this place. And Butrea seems to be on a quest to save her kidnapped husband."
 

Steve Gorak

Explorer
Well met Owyn and Butrea. The merchant we are looking for is Mached Pakelan, you wouldn’t have seen him by any chance?” He then pats Sayine on the head.

LEVEL 2 (Owyn, Beturea, Coriana, Liam, Mindra, Owyn, Theremin, Sayine)

Beturea peeked her head around the door. She was an attractive woman in her early thirties, though a bit worse for wear for being in the dungeon. “You’re looking for Mached!” she asked excitedly. “Have you found him? Did you get him back? They took him, the bandits! They..They left a note.” She pulled it out of her bodice to hand over. The note said she had a month to get a ransom of 1000 gold together and presented at the Crossroads. “It’s already been a week!”

Alas my dear, we haven’t found him. Perhaps with your help, we will be successful. Maybe we need to interrogate some Kobolds. Are there any left where you came from?

OOC: Fyi, I’m not clear about what is left to investigate/explore

"I beat one until it fled. Not sure if it's gone to get friends or not, part of why we came upstairs rather than out the front door."

Beturea sighed and deflated a bit. “Then I need to get back to the capitol and see if I can get the ransom together. I’ve already lost so much time!” She started to weep.

OOC: You’ve basically cleared the tower at this point. If you want to find a kobold to interrogate somewhere, you can probably find one. If you want to get out of the tower, you can do that, too. You are one flight up from the exit.))

looking at Baturea with sympathy, Theremin says: “I am sorry for your suffering my lady. I believe it would be worthwhile to question one of the kobolds, since we are here”.

"If we can find any left alive. I'll be more than happy to assist with getting out of here and, if we can find him, saving Butrea's husband. I was on a trip to The Academy, but I'm not expected and in no particular rush. And I like to help when things need doing."
 

Steve Gorak

Explorer
To the Academy! How interesting, that is where I learned my magics! It is such a small world!” Theremin says, genuinely pleased.

When the party goes looking for kobolds, they find a few still on the first level, behind the double doors in what appears to be a large Great Hall, with long, dusty tables where banquets might be served. They are cowering the corners.

Theremin approaches them: “Dear Kobolds, as you have seen, it is not a good idea to make us angry. Cooperate and you will live. Lie, and you will die. We will know, so don’t waste our time. Where is the merchant that drove the cart left outside the tower?

OOC: I am assuming advantage for the roll since Theremin’s companions will be helping, and the Kobolds are terrified: natural 20 on the first roll! For a nice total of 28

Owyn stands behind Theramin, sword and shield at the ready. He couldn't speak the language, but he could look intimidating at the need.
 

Lord Twig

Explorer
"I will not leave someone behind if they can be rescued," Mindra declares, then mutters quietly to herself, "not again."

OOC: Mindra will help with locating the kobolds and then will stand behind Theremin and Owyn to guard their backs while they do the questioning.

LEVEL 1: Dining Room (Owyn, Beturea, Coriana, Liam, Mindra, Owyn, Theremin, Sayine)

The kobolds looked terrified. One even wet himself. They fell to their knees, begging.

“Please no hurt us! We not find merchant! Only woman! Wagon overturned. All scattered. Woman lying there.” The kobold banged his head to indicate Beturea had been unconscious. “We take nice things! We take woman! No else! No merchant!”
