Short adventure with Eanos and Tyrien
DM: Perrinmiller
Judge: ??


Heroes:
Tyrien e'Adrianne (perrinmiller) - Half-elven Arcane Archer - NPC Status (not gaining XP or GP)
Eanos Setirav (jkason) - Human Inquisitor


[sblock=XP]Clock Starts on 6 Sep Apr 2013 & Ends 14 Dec 2013 (100 days)
Eanos starts at 19,676XP: Reached 7th level (23,004XP) on 6 Nov 2013; Ended at 27,722XP

Enc1: 600XP Each (23 Oct 2013)
Enc2: 2400XP Each (27 Nov 2013)
[/sblock][sblock=Treasury]Enc1: 6700gp in gold and items

[/sblock][Sblock=Final Awards]DMC = 7.0

Eanos's TBG (4618 gp) + 3350gp of Treasure = Total Reward of 7968gp

Eanos Earned 5046 TBX + 3000xp from encounter = 8046xp total

[/Sblock][sblock=Adventure Rules]* I will use group initiatives, rolling them myself. So in combat you must post your actions within 48-72 hours of the players turn coming up. Unless stated by a character that their actions are to follow another character, they will be resolved in posted order. After that time, if there was no communication with the DM, I will NPC the MIA player and move on.

* Dice rollers can be Invisible Castle or http://www.coyotecode.net/roll/ on-line dice rollers for the players. The DM will use his own purple dice at home or an on-line random number generator.

* Please use the exact BBCode link Invis Castle provides. This requires an Account at Invis Castle to add. I want to see what the roll is for and the target designated (ie. "Bite vs. Orc 4") in the description block that is provided when you are logged in. Including the modifiers that make the bonuses different than normal can also be included. This example would be ideal: Spiked Chain vs. Orc 4 (Kn Dev & -2/+4 PA) (1d20+11=12, 2d4+10=14)
I would appreciate not having to take any extra time to click any links during my updates.

* Any absences for longer than 2-3 days should be communicated to the DM. If you do not post for a week or more without having informed the DM, he reserves the right to remove you from the adventure giving you your share of the XP and treasure earned as well as time XP and gp to the date of your last post

* If your character gets enough XP to level they may do so immediately once combat is finished. This grants the extra hp, but does not heal damage, and grants any additional spell slots, but not spells prepared. A caster capable of spontaneously casting could use these slots normally, a cleric could only use them for cure or inflict spells, a druid for summon nature's ally, etc. Prepared casters may prepare spells in these slots as if they had left the slots blank for the day, if they are able to do so. They can go through the appropriate spell preparation as if they had already rested if applicable.

* All characters need an appropriate character picture, head-shot preferably, for token on the tactical grids. Also a mini-stat spoiler block that includes a link to your character sheet will be required in every IC post.[/sblock]

"Need to work on my accounting, I guess, but not bad," Eanos says as he and Tyrien leave the Pearl. He's taken her lead and donned his new mithral breastplate under his jacket so as to conceal some of its gleam. "Said you wanted some new shoes?" he asks, looking about for the shop Tyrien had been talking about as they left the inn.

Tyrien nods appreciatively.

"Yes, new shoes for any occasion are nice. But when it comes to adventuring outdoors it is all wasted. These well-made boots are soft and better for sneaking around than your average footwear. But still, I like looking. There is a shop just over there."

She gestures down the street.

A man across the street climbs down from the driver's bench of a enclosed coach parked a few yards away from the pair of archers. He is wearing some livery that is important looking, but not readily recognizable.

The green coach with gold colored trim has shutters over most of the windows to prevent people from easily seeing in, but the occupants can peer through the slates to see out. There is a small crest on the door of the coach.

The man crosses the street and tips his top hat as he steps in front of Eanos and Tyrien.


"Pardon milady and her companion. Might you happen to be adventurer's for hire?"

Tyrien, Half-elven Archeress



Tyrien stops in her tracks and opens her mouth to mention being too busy looking for some suede slippers with purple velvet tassels. After a few seconds of looking a bit awkward, as she glances around, she shuts her mouth and looks to Eanos.

The she disassembles, "Um... well, perhaps we are. I guess that really depends on who's asking or who sent you."

Considering her previous experiences with the Church of Helerion, she has to be more careful when people come looking for her on the street.

The half-elven lass looks to see what the red-headed man wants to do.

Eanos strains his eyes to see what the crest might be, though he has limited knowledge of the noble houses of Venza. Better to have the image in his mind than not, he decides.

He's struck a bit dumb by the approach of the man from the coach. It isn't until Tyrien speaks that he realizes he's not spoken.

"Lady has the right of it," he offers. "Been known to sell my bow arm, but a fellow has to be careful, yes?"

His eyes narrow slightly as he judges the driver's response.

[sblock=ooc]He has Perception +13 for trying to get the details of the crest, though no ranks in Know: Nobility or Local, so he's unlikely to get much from identifying it.

Going to invoke his Silver Tongued Haggler. Makes his Sense Motive check +20 when the driver responds. Wow. I didn't even realize it was that high until I had to just calculate it, lol. Well, when your concept is a truth seeker, I guess go all out... :) [/sblock]

~ 3:15pm: On Arcane Row ~



The crest on the coach is a typical family coat of arms of blue, white, and yellow. There is a brown horse in one quadrant and crossed weapons in another. Tyrien and Eanos have not sent enough time living in the City of Glass to recognize the crest, but the minor houses of the nobility number in excess of 100.

The coachman gives a slight bow of his head and gestures to the coach,
"The Lady Elenore bid that I approach ones such as yourselves to listen to a proposition of some discretion. She wishes that you join her inside her coach for some privacy."

Eanos does not see any signs of deception on the other man's part, he appears to be telling the truth as he knows it.

Eanos looks to Tyrien, then shrugs.

"Costs little enough to listen, yes?" Assuming she doesn't object, he nods to the coachman.

"Lead us to your lady, then." he says.

Tyrien agrees with a nod of her own and follows behind the red-headed man as they are led to the coach.

She replies to Eanos, "In this case, nope. Listening will be cheap. Though, I suppose we could charge him or his Lady for our time. Like we are some solicitors... Bah, lawyers! As if."

"I wonder if she is going to serve refreshments. Wine? Sweet cakes? Tarts? Tea? Maybe not, there is not much room for a kitchen in those little carriages."

"Is that her personal carriage? Are you her man? Or did she hire you as well? Oh, who is Lady Elenore anyway?"
She directs the last questions to the stoic coachman. The chattering questions from the half-elven lass are non-stop, as she doesn't hardly wait for a reply to any of them.

The man replies to your agreement,
"Very good, this way if you please. Milady Elenore is within," and ignores everything else, keeping himself aloof while he discharges his duties.

The coachman opens the lacquered door by the brass handle and gestures for the pair to proceed inside. The interior is not so dim, a magical crystal provides plenty of light. The couch seats are plush red velvet, one forward and one back, both facing each other. A well dressed woman is seated in the center of the rear seat, leaving you to sit in the other.


The beautiful Lady Elenore has reddish-brown hair and cream colored skin. Her aristocratic dress is of soft green satin or silk. Her cosmetics and jewelry further identify her as one of influence and wealth, in case the personal coach was not enough. Her elegantly manicured hand gestures towards the bench seat in front of her.
"Come, please sit."

After climbing inside the coach and settling in to face her, the coachman shuts door. The coach rocks as he climbs up front and sits on the driver's bench. A snap of the reins and the coach lurches into motion. The woman before you begins explaining her proposition.


"I am the Lady Elenore. I am in need of a favor that I am willing to pay for. There is some heirloom jewelry of mine that certain man refuses return. While he could certainly claim to have acquired the items legally, that is open to dispute. Even so, the cruel man is stubbornly reluctant to even let me buy them back."

"Furthermore, he has gone so far to boast of selling them to my ex-husband instead. I will never get them back should that occur."

"I am in need of some unorthodox assistance from some very capable and resourceful people. Of course, I also wish to avoid scandal so discretion is of the utmost importance as well."

Eanos listens carefully to the lady's tale, and request, his hand drifting momentarily to the spot beneath his jacket under which the silvery key of Issolatha hangs. He cocks his head to one side, considering his response.

"Unorthodox? So, you want us to scare him or steal from him, yes?"

He holds up his hand in anticipation that any noble would need to re-name thievery as something else.

"Not opposed to either, and not judging. Plenty of things are legal and serve evil, and plenty enough times when the law's nothing but a shield for the dark. But I won't be doing any of that with half the information, so:

"Who's the man, and how did he get these jewels of yours?

"He hasn't sold to your ex yet, means he's holding out for something that isn't money. What is that?

"What would the jewels mean to your ex beyond shaming you?

"What does losing the jewels to him cost you that you're looking for sellswords on the streets?"


Eanos leans in, a cold glint in his eye as he pulls the key out and dangles it, adding, "Be careful how you answer. Mine's the Lady of Secrets. She's taught me to spot liers. I'll have the answers either way. Easier on everyone if you tell the truth now, yes?"

[sblock=ooc]Invoking Silver Tongued Haggler (Sense Motive now +20) as a free action, and using Inquisitor Discern Lies ability as immediate action. (I have a question on the DC for this, so I'll just go with the lower option for now so I don't hold things up: DC 15 Will save to avoid)[/sblock]

Tyrien, Half-elven Archeress



Tyrien opens her mouth to ask some questions, but in rare form she has little to ask about as her new companion start really interrogating the Lady in earnest. Question after question after question, followed up by a threat to not try lying.

She giggles, "Hee, hee. Just who is interviewing who for a job, Eanos? I think you missed a question or two."

"When is this man supposed to sell these jewels to your ex-husband and what do they look like? We will need to be able to recognize them so we ensure we get the right ones back."

The Lady Elenore is not so amused at the presumption and tone of Eanos's questioning. Nor is she intimidated by his threats concerning lies and the stern insistence he would learn the truth before she even agreed to hiring him.

"Yes, of course. More information will be provided, assuming you two would serve my purposes. Inquisitiveness is admirable and a sign of the capability to be clever."

"But you have not even introduced yourselves nor explained why I should even trust you with the truth. If I choose to not share my secrets, that is not your place to even question."

"Though, it is well that you are not concerned about being strictly lawful when it comes to doing what is right or what you are being paid to do. I will grant you that much."

"Should we come to an agreement, I will leave the methods up to you. And any laws you feel you need to bend are entirely up to you. I am willing to pay to have my jewelry returned to me."

Eanos does not detect any falsehoods at all. Her aristocratic air and tone are genuine.

Eanos' stern glare breaks as he laughs.

"Eanos," he says with a nod to indicate he's introducing himself.

Then, visibly relaxing, Eanos settles back in the seat to continue.

"Coachman said you had a job offer for us. Didn't realize you were interviewing," he says with a shrug. "Already know your name, your crest, and that you're a divorced noble--pretty rare in the world of bartered marriages. Not too hard to ask around and ferret out the other names if we were the secret-selling kind. Sort of figured a noble looking for discretion would have already vetted folk before inviting them into her carriage.

"Apologies, then, for assuming. Just thought to get a jump on the kinds of details that bite a body in the ass on this kind of job, yes?"


He jabs a thumb to his chest, saying "Sneaky, sharp-eyed, able to spot a lie and tell them, and pretty good with a bow." He turns his wrist so that the thumb now points to Tyrien. "Think I'll let the lady speak for herself, yes?"

[sblock=ooc]Sorry if I seem to be pushing things / making assumptions. I just know I'm effectively the slowing / limiting factor here, since obviously you-as-GM will never have to wait on Tyrien. I just don't want to drag things down since it looks like I get on to post after you've finished for the day. Plus, as chatty as Tyrien is, I don't want you to feel like you're just talking to yourself the whole time ;)

Eanos and Tyrien didn't talk a lot about her abilities beyond bows, as I recall, and his "secret" schtick is such that I try not to have him give out information about others unless he has to, which was why he didn't introduce Tyrien. He sees introducing someone else to be a rude offering of their secrets; he's a bit backwards like that, but he is a Heretic, after all. :) [/sblock]

Tyrien, Half-elven Archeress



Tyrien blinks a few times as the woman makes them take a figurative step back, "Oh, okay. I am Tyrien e'Adrianne, elven archeress of the arcane. Slayer of dark stalkers, undead, and the dragonne Arrak. Except the Helerion priest brought the grumpy dragonne back to life."

"I am adept with the bow, yet I know a little magic. I am decent enough scout, too... And I can swim, ride a horse, tumble a bit... oh, I can shoot arrows pretty fast."

~ 3:20pm: On Arcane Row - Elenore's Carriage ~


The carriage continues onward. Lady Elenore accepts the explanations with a simple, "Thank you."

"I must tell you the opportune moment to get my jewelry back is approaching quickly and you might need time to prepare. What preparations you need make, I can only advise to a certain extent."

The noblewoman actually colors slightly, in embarrassment most likely. "As it happens, the cruel man who has my jewelry is one known as Steven Blancher. He is a wealthy merchant of some means and aspiring towards nobility. He... he swindled me and has my jewelry and refuses to return them or even sell them back out of spite. The cause of his hostility is known. I managed to spurn his romantic advances quite publicly and he is rather resentful over it."

"He even told me of his plan to sell them to my cheating ex-husband, the General. Once he has them, I shall never see them again... except to see them on that whore he has taken to be his new bride." Her voice drips venom at this revelation.

After a calming breath, she continues a moment later, "Mister Blancher is going to meet the General at his favorite bath house in about thirty to forty minutes. It is already too late to get my jewelry from him before Blancher arrives, he is already there, in all likelihood enjoying himself to a massage. I will go see my ex-husband and delay him, but that will only provide an extra half an hour for you."

"So the only way to get my jewelry is to go to the Bath House, but luckily Blancher will be vulnerable at the time."

"However, he must not know that I sent you. So whatever you do to acquire them, must not implicate me. The man is a viper and he will likely see revenge if he learns your identities. If he gets proof of my involvement, then he could even make an overt move against me."

[/sblock] [sblock=OOC]First, your character is the lead protagonist and the pace is up to you. :)
I will try to post once per day in reply during my next window which is often at least a half day after yours. I am usually wrapping up my posting for the night and off to bed when you come on-line. So only quick stuff happens during that time unless I am still catching up on things. But since I have figured out when you come on-line, I will try to have 1-2 posts up and ready for you beforehand. Weekends are busy for me and I might need an extra day. If you cannot post every day, that is okay.

Second, Tyrien in NPC'd mode is not like Tyrien in player mode. She going to let Eanos speak first in terms of substance. She is normally only chatty when there is idle time anyway. :p

Last, there is no need to rush the conversations as far as I am concerned. I like them. So it is best make it feel natural and reply in kind. So they tend to take longer than most games.

While this is short, the actual combat itself is not going to be a large part of it. But I don't want to spoiler the experience and say more. :)[/sblock]

Eanos raises an eyebrow. "Is it your ex, or this Blancher who frequents the bath house?" he asks, the hint of a smile on his lips, then he shakes his head, dismissing the question.

"Tyrien's right. Need to know what we're looking for, first. And if there's any friendly to you who work this place. Think he'll keep the jewels on him, or is there a safe box in this place? Probably want to know now if we'll need to open locks."

Turning to Tyrien, he asks, "Any disguise or invisibility magics on you? Might be worth checking the Pearl."

Back to the Lady, he has a sudden thought: "Don't suppose you have a portrait of your ex handy, do you?"

[sblock=ooc]Disguise Self to look like the General is probably too difficult given the time constraints, but Eanos does have enough to get a Hat of Disguise for this little shindig, and probably an invisibilty scroll or two...[/sblock]

Tyrien, Half-elven Archeress



Tyrien looks curiously at the Lady. "He is carting around your jewels while washing his own family jewels. Hee, hee. That is just rich and priceless, HA HA."

She stops laughing and sobers up a bit. "I suppose we can castrate him if you want," she says in a dead-pan that is ruined as she snickers.

Finally in control of herself, Tyrien shakes her head, "No, I only know a little bit of spell casting. A healing spell and one of inspiration. But, I am pretty good as sneaking around otherwise. I can pick open a look too, if we need to."

"What sort of bath house is this place?"
she asks Lady Elenore.

~ 3:21pm: On Arcane Row - Elenore's Carriage ~


The carriage continues onward.

Lady Elenore answers as she ignores the jests from the teenage half-elf.

"Sorry, no I do not have a portrait of that bastard the General."

"Blancher often conducts business at the exclusive bath house, so I am told. He brags about the place to all who will listen. I guess he feel it is safe neutral ground where people cannot hide weapons or anything. If they have safeguards for magic as well, I do cannot say."

"I have never been inside the bath house, myself. It is actually male only for patrons, but there are likely some women on the serving staff."

"The necklace and earrings are probably kept in the velvet bag that I had them in. I don't think he will let them out of his sight while he is there in the bath house. Would he trust them to a safe or the staff, I do not know."

The noblewoman glances out the window as the carriage is coming to the end of Arcane Row.

"If you wish to stop somewhere along the way, I can instruct the carriage to detour. I am not sure you will be even allowed into the doors of the establishment with all your weapons and armor."

Eanos nods.

"Mystic Pearl. Definitely sounds like we'll need some disguise magics, or maybe some compulsion."

[sblock=ooc]Okay, sounds like we'll need disguise magics at the very least, so I'll hit up the Pearl later today. Probably grab a hat of disguise and see what kind of useful scrolls I can find, as well.[/sblock]
