Subject: Update

Alright ladies and gents and rocks and spirits of celery, UPDATE IS UP.

Took a few liberties to advance things, because A) It's been too long and B)Somehow we still didn't have a huge consensus.

Unless the rest of the group is alright with Calopee taking all the gold, only the chain has been claimed, so everything else has been put in the collective holdings that can be seen in the first post of this thread.

Any questions or whatever can be posted here, otherwise I'd like to get us back on track. Next update a week from today at the latest.

Topic: Fortune's Favoured: Here There Be Goats

Midnight, Isiah’s Farm, Schell

Bartellus’s tireless labour had saved the Favoured some time, though his callousness in stacking the bodies had left a macabre sight. While there was no doubt their adversaries had deserved their fate, the sight of a pile of lifeless bodies still gave chills to the assembled survivors. Only the charmed bandit seemed unperturbed, gleefully recounting the last time he’d seen a body pile of that size to anyone who would listen. Despite his magically induced friendly demeanour, his immoral outlook served a fine reminder to the group that eventually something would have to be done with him.

Malachi was the first to step away from the scene, making his way back towards Isiah’s main hut. He’d had his fill of looting bodies, his prize the serrated steel chain of their foe’s bearded leader. He reflected on the strangely effective team he and the others had formed while he made his way through Isiah’s door, called to the farmer’s stores by the rumbling in his stomach. They’d saved a season’s worth of wheat, perhaps Isiah’s cabinets could spare a small meal to restore his energy.

Though the riders had only managed a few moments in Isiah’s hut the signs of disarray were everywhere. Overturned chairs and flung open cupboards revealed the area of their search, though there seemed to be little to show for it. A wrapped package in the opened drawers caught Mal’s eye, and it was hard to tell if he was disappointed or pleased to find a serving of salted meat inside. Whatever the men had come searching for, it seemed likely they’d not found it, and a brief look around by Mal turned up similarly disappointing. Any questions that remained would have to wait for Isiah, it seemed.

Back outside, Calopee stood before the results of her work. She’d accounted for nearly half of the dead’s number, and a moderately uncharacteristic bout of concern marked her face. The paladin Relos strode over to her, seeming to sense her thoughts as they looked over the heap of bodies.

"What do we do with them? Surely this pile cannot stand as their last vigil? They were scum to be sure, but what are we if in our wake is left a pile of bodies?"

Relos nodded at the halfling’s words. He’d been taught evil men deserved what fates befell them, but there was still respect for the dead, regardless of their intentions in life. Wordlessly, the half-elf began laying the bodies out more respectfully, there was no room for a burial, but at the very least separating the corpses could give them a shred of dignity. The paladin quietly gave a prayer to Gian as he performed the last rites before both he and the Halfling headed into Isiah’s hut, their own rest fully on their mind as their aching bodies truly felt the deeds of the day.

Sehanine and Tristan too began their way inside, the ever cheery Bartellus in tow. Attempts at getting more information from the man seemed fruitless; it seemed he’d truly divulged everything he’d known. Jaron, from what they’d learned of him, was a thoughtful man, and leaving an expendable piece like Bartellus out of the loop seemed to fit his general description.

What to do with Bartellus was now the question of the hour, Sehanine’s enchantment would eventually expire and how the man would react afterwards was rather predictable. What he deserved was almost certainly as clear, though even the most pragmatic of the group thought poorly of killing a defenseless man who believed himself to be among friends. There was no possibility for debate while Bartellus was part of the conversation, but at Sehanine’s urging the man decided rest was the best course of action and made himself comfortable by the fire, his snoring soon providing ample evidence his senses were no longer overly active.

Even then, no real consensus could be made, and eventually a stopgap was agreed to, Tristan locking the man’s arms in manacles and binding his feet until an option was decided on. Any other decisions could wait until the morning, and the group finally allowed themselves to sleep, seeking comfort in the hut however they could find it. Their day had been long, but in a way satisfying. For good or ill, things were happening for Fortune’s Favoured.


Sunrise, Isiah’s Hut, Schell


The plethora of profanity awoke Malachi with a start, a glance to his side noting the unarmed and bound Bartellus writhing on the floor in a vain effort to close the distance between them. The compulsions toward civility had clearly expired, and waking up bound on a floor had done little for the man’s clearly short temper. Barring the utility of learning some new inventive curses, it seemed not gagging the man might have been a mistake.

Sunlight began streaming through the hut’s windows as the group arose, remembrance of the night’s events flooding back to them in what seemed a less painful repetition of their awakening the day before. Bartellus’s continued spewing of insults and threats was an unwelcome distraction, and the Favoured made their way outside for a respite from the man who hours before had been jovial, if not exactly pleasant.

The first light of the day had illuminated the results of the night prior, and the damage wrought was now painfully visible. The still smoking pile of ash that had once served as Isiah’s stores seemed oddly the least concerning, the well-trod earth surrounding the hut having been given a distinct red hue from the blood that had soaked into it the night before. Most eye grabbing were the eight bodies laid cleanly before the remains of the store shed. Even a casual glance in that direction gave a chill, as though Relos had done his best, there was little to disguise the events that had transpired. The hill behind the hut was a mess of torn up earth, the riders’ horses fleeing in a panic as the battle broke out. The interlopers had been dealt with, true, but at what cost?

The call of a familiar voice drew the attention of the Favoured away from the scene as the tanned form of Isiah rounded the bend in the path through the wheat fields, accompanied by a handful of locals in what appeared shabbily assembled armour and armed with whatever they’d seemed to have on hand.

”Oh thank gods…I’d seen the smoke…I’d thought.” Isiah’s thoughts came out in a jumble, his eyes darting around his home. ”What…what happened?”

So, Tristan and Calopee receive enough healing to return them to full health.

Relos lays on hands on himself for 12hp worth of healing.

Now...the loot, parsed collectively.

In total the bodies had:
8 Masterwork Shortswords
8 Suits of Masterwork Studded Leather Armour
1 Masterwork Spiked Chain
1 Masterwork Chain Shirt
5 Throwing Axes

Do what you will.

Also a remind, I am leaving on a vacation starting Wednesday July 2nd, so I will not be able to update for roughly a week from that day.

Topic: Fortune's Favoured: Here There Be Goats

Shortly before Midnight, Isiah’s Farm, Schell

A collective sigh seemed to escape from Fortune’s Favoured as the stress of combat faded and the sudden realisation of the last few minutes of activity reached their aching muscles. The pain of the wounds they’d suffered seemed to flare up as their adrenaline receded, and a moment of quiet reflection on the danger they’d face was broken only by a loud *crack* as a supporting timber of the shed finally gave way and the flaming structure collapsed into a pile of expended fuel. Tristan made his way about the group, dispensing his divine energies as requested as well as passing a silvery-blue infusion over his own previously fatal wounds. Relos did the same to himself, channeling the healing power of his patron into his numerous wounds. It was then that Sehanine, uninjured in the fracas, rejoined the group, a new friend in tow.

“This is Bartellus. He’s kindly offered to help clean up this mess. Such a darling man…”

The elf had a wicked smile that at the very least seemed to disturb Calopee; her magical hold over Bartellus obvious as he went about dragging the corpses of his former comrades (and brother) along the ground into a more concentrated heap. The Halfling distracted herself with some friendly banter with Malachi as the enthralled Bartellus continued his grisly work. It seemed the pair of them had accounted for more than their share of the slain this night, though the tone of their conversation was distinctly light-hearted; even a playful jab at Tristan’s once precarious state was met with a witting smirk.

The conversation lasted only a minute and Malachi’s eyes turned to the men that had assaulted him outside the shed. Their bodies had yet to have been moved by Bartellus, the light cast by the burning remains of the shed danced on their corpses in what could be construed as some grim parody of life. The light seemed to illuminate something else on the bodies, and the keen eye of the Argent Blade spotted the flicker as he made his way over. Sighing with the troubling realisation that one of the newly anointed “Heroes of Schell” was looting a dead body, Mal nevertheless turned one of his former foes over for a quick reconnoitre. The others save Relos followed his lead, with Sehanine using her magic to scour over the bodies while Bartellus did the dirty work. The half-elven Paladin abstained, taking the moment to gain some quiet reflection as he turned away from his comrades.

The men had been lightly armed, perhaps befitting their role as swift raiders in the night, and there was little of value on them besides their weapons and coinpurses. Sehanine’s magical detection located nothing of note, whatever valuable loot these men had carried surely had been left behind at wherever they made a home for themselves, having not expected much in the way of a confrontation with a simple farmer’s hut it seemed. Calopee’s thorough search of the group’s bearded leader was similarly disappointing, a few loops on his belt that had seemed primed for carrying additional items seemed recently unstrapped, and save his chain and collection of coins little of value was found.

Bartellus finished his somber task shortly after the search of the bodies was completed, and those remaining standing gathered alongside the newly formed body pile. The witching hour was fast approaching and it seemed their duty to Isiah had been more or less fulfilled. The shed had been lost, its contents save the handful of seeds Malachi carried incinerated in the blaze, but the main hut still stood unmolested, the belongings inside only briefly disturbed as the Favoured had sprung their ambush before the ransacking had properly taken place. By the group’s wishes, Isiah had travelled back to Schell proper, and it would be a few hours before he should return, though the pillar of smoke rising from the shed’s remains might send a confusing message to any who looked towards the farm house.

Bartellus walked over to the assembled Favoured, wiping the sweat from his brow casually, his face still displaying the familiar grin brought on by Sehanine’s compulsion.

”F&%kers were heavy, no wonder they were too slow to stay standing.” the man gave a disturbing laugh as he mocked his dead friends. ”Well then…what’s next?”

(OOC: Loot and whatnot to be described in the Q&A.)

Due to circumstances that I wouldn't wish on anyone, Jozan may be unable to post for a period of time. I will be NPCing Relos for the immediate future awaiting his return to availability, and best wishes go his way.

Anyway, anyone else got anything for this posting segment? I could update if that's what people feel is holding them up, but other than letting Bartellus condense the body pile and Schnozzle searching 3 corpses not a whole lot would get done there.

So here's the dilly-o hombres (and hombrettes?). The sooner the group gets a consensus decision as to their actions, I will get an update in.

Additionally, as of July 2nd I am going to be out of town for about a week or so, and will obviously be unable to post in that span because I will drunk on the sea. As in on a boat, not inebriated from salt water, well hopefully not anyway.

So with that in mind, we can try to get two updates in before next Wednesday if everything lines up wonderfully. Alternatively, we can form an interpretive hip-hop group and call ourselves "Male Order Brides". Get it...because of dudes.

Or something, I really don't know.

Topic: Welcome to the Dungeon
Subject: Second?


Harsh reality struck the man as his eyes slowly opened; he did not know where he'd come from but he was quite certain it had not been this place. His bare skin felt the grit of the dirt beneath him, and his eyes traced a path around his new surroundings. The poorly formed but rounded wall showed no signs of an exit, and it's stony hew exuded a cold that bothered him as he struggled to remember what led him to this place.

His eyes trailed down, the flickering light of the torch casting dancing shadows along the walls as the others stirred. Had there been others before? Thoughts raced through his mind. He knelt down, his fingers idly running through the dirt of the floor. Something about being connected to the earth even in such a small way kept him feeling safe.

Among the others, a small Kobold with earthy toned skin and piercing eyes that gave the man pause was the first to rise. It surveyed the room as well, and the man met it looked over his naked form. The creature seemingly made up its mind as it strode forward and asked of the group without hesitation.

Who are you? And where are we?"

The man remained silent, words escaping him as he realised just how little he could remember of himself. He had no knowledge of the room they'd found themselves in, nor did the others if his suspicions were correct. He looked down, noticing his fingers absently playing with the dirt they all rested on, and turned back to face the Kobold.

"It seems we are trapped here, though that is all I can say, dragon-kin.", he gestured towards the others, "Perhaps they may be of greater assistance in this question we seemingly share."
