From David: [Re: Posts]
Anybody? So far two of us have posted since the last
Did we lose everybody?
I get the distinct feeling of an empty echo...echo...
GM: Ack. Well all but Unali/Kell/Z posted. But yeah.
I was holding the game per request by Tobie so he
could catch up and post. I will do that anytime since
stuff gets in the way including my own life.
From Fremea: [Re: Actions]
Fremea listens to Etain intently. Not because his story...
"later, even though I really want to see it."
[Sepes 28th, 1634TH]
[Location: City of Salaqara, Donara]
[Time: 3:18pm - South Salaqara - near Burz's home]
As the party moves down the street, Arawn catches up
after implanting some memories in the maid's mind.
Arawn held a plethora of questions in check at Etain's
request, Trusting that when the group finally made their way
to a secure location answers would be forthcoming. In reply to
the Elf's questions Arawn replied,
"There is much to be shared but your immediate concerns
shall take precedence. When we have the time and privacy we
shall speak at length. For now let us see if we may catch the
other hunter before they reach their goal."
[Time: 3:45pm - South Salaqara - Streets]
When Etain enters the shop to get directions for the Gorlic
estate the party murmur among themselves. Niko just looks
bored but when he sees a cute girl walk by he smiles and
smoothes down his hair.
Kiet moves closer to Fremea and begins to whisper a few
words to her in hushed tones. Fremea replies back in
hushed whispers and Kiet steps back a foot as if shocked
by some comment. His face clearly shows a bit of surpise
by her reaction. Then the acrobat gets closer again and
speaks a few more words and smiles.
Etain exits the shop and begins to lead the party toward
the destination he has in mind.
Fremea listened to Etain intently. Not because his story is
compelling or even in the slightest possible way fully true, but
because she is looking for any clues about her parents and what
she needs to do to get them back. There have been way too many
lies coming from this one for her life. This is not the time to
trust him. There are a couple of times that he pauses, and she
guesses he is leaving out something sensitive or maybe even
important. It could be what she keeps to herself, but there
seems to be still something more than that.
As they pass the street towards the gallery, she feels a
pulling to keep going, though she really wants to get a good
look at the paintings. She shakes her head at Arawn with his
looking at her, "later, even though I really want to see it."
Fremea keeps her eye on Etain even when Kiet pulls her to
the side really quick. Back to Raban, "Yes, he is not to be
trusted at all. He may be many possible things and looking unkempt
is one of those. I told you that I had been trained to do many
things, and he was one of those trainers."
Raban can see Fremea's pain in her face and frowns. He feels
sad and angry. He balls his fist and could bash the Elf in but
he only waits for her command. The small Faerry may still need
use for him so will not squish his skull in for now.
[Time: 4:10pm - South Salaqara - Gorlic's Estate street]
At the Gorlic estate, Raban informs of the locked gate.
Kiet looks to Fremea who eyes the estate with some wonder.
To a winged person this locked gate is nothing to worry
about. But she does forget about the others. Kiet acts
on the situation and speaks up.
At the Manor, when she notices the guards laying on the
ground, she quickly shakes off her disguise, not really needed
anymore and takes to the sky to see the whole place. If Raban
follows, she will point to the back, taking Kiet's suggestion
and fly that way. Her dagger will be ready, along with making
sure her bracelet that protects against Kotothi is on. She will
use her mana sensing training to make sure she is not surprised
again by whatever pushed her before.
Niko stares at the small girl taking off her dress. He likes
girls but to see a child naked might be a odd situation for the
young man. Then she unfurls her wings and leaps to the air.
The eyes of the bearer bulge out and his jaw drops. He steps
back a foot and then shakes his head. This may result in a very
large confidential bonus for sure. Kiet sighs and has no time
to correct that scene.
"Fremea! Raban! You two head around back and see if there
is a rear entrance and go on in. Will and Kell, go around the
left side. Arawn and Z'leyra take the right. If either of you
find a way in, use it..but you might want to keep one of you
outside to watch. Unali and I will check the front. Niko, you
and Etain stay here and see if you can do anything for this poor
fellow." Kiet gestures toward the man laying next to the gate.
He then draws his sword and heads toward the front door, leaving
the painting with Etain and Niko.
Kiet moves toward the gate and slams right into it finding
it locked. He can't get inside to the grounds or the poor
man yet. He looks back sheepishly forgetting what Raban just
said. Raban nods and grins a bit.
Raban turns to the others, "I could just ...hop over and
carry folks two at a time if needed."
With Raban's discovery of a locked gate Arawn began to slip
off a bejeweled torc as he moved to examine the man lying beside
"Touch the sapphire to the lock if you wish to open to the
gate," he said, ready to hand the item over to anyone wishing
to use it.
Raban takes the item and places it on the lock. With a few
sudden clicks and a twang the lock unlocks. Raban opens the
gate and hands the item back to Arawn.
Arawn then leaned forward, his keen eyes scanning the ground
for any sign of recent tracks that might indicate the potential
assassin's passage before examining the fallen figure.
Fremea takes to the air and flies toward the house. Raban
takes a few seconds to realize what is going on and then enters
the grounds and leaps to the air. Niko doesn't seem surprised
to see a flying giant at this point but just looks like he found
a bag of gold on the ground
Arawn opens the gate end enters with Will behind him. Both
men kneel down to check out the guard behind the gate. He
is alive but knocked out. Both can see his sword and dagger
are still sheathed making it appear he was surprised. The
only obvious wound is on his forehead. Looks like he was
slammed into the iron gate with force enough to knock him out.
He will have a severe headache but the bruise will fade from
his head soon.
Kell urges Will to run after him toward the left side. As
they round the corner they can see two small structures. The
first is about 130 feet behind the left edge of the house.
Based on the look it is likely a outhouse. The other one
is about 60 feet behind it or 190 odd feet from the front
of the house. Unlike the wooden first structure this is
more sturdy looking of wood. Based on the front door it
is probably a shed or shop of some kind.
Once inside the gate, Arawn looks for tracks. The path
from the gate to the front porch is well worn out. There
are many tracks so it is hard to say who has come or gone.
Most are boots and some look to be well made shoes. To the
left side the bright green well trimmed grass shows no sign
of tracks at all. To the right there are some in the grass
but they seem to be boots as well. From that direction there
appears to be signs of horses likely from the barn.
Around the guard though there seems to be a flurry of boot
tracks but it hard to tell if recent or days old. The dirt
path is probably reshaped every few days from foot traffic
alone and rains. Will finishes the body search and finds
nothing unusual just a few coins and the man's uniform
which is not bloody or torn in any fashion. Will runs
after Kell to catch up.
Arawn also runs after Z'leyra who has moved toward the
right base don Kiet's suggestion. Z'leyra wonders who
made him suddenly the boss. She thought Fremea was declared
leader. But she knows that for Katai others had to take
charge as well. Z'leyra can clearly see the barn now as what
it should be. A small simple wooden window shows inside with
about 6 horses inside small stalls. She can only imagine
that they must be there short term or they'd get upset at
their small stalls. But there seems to be no one else inside.
Arawn catches up and joins Z'leyra moving toward the side
of the house on the right. All the while looking for windows
and looking inside.
Etain motions for Niko to enter through the gate and
wait inside the property. Best not to be standing around
on the street. Etain looks around left and right as if
looking for something.
Unali with daggers in hand and Kiet with sword out moves
toward the front porch. They check the two guards who
are uniformed as well. Both find them to be dead. One
from a slice in his neck from some blade and the other stabbed
deep in the lung by a blade probably a small sword. Based
on the pool of blood and body temperature they probably have
not been dead for too long.
Unali checks the front door and finds it cracked open a bit.
She moves inside and with Kiet following behind. Silently they
move from foyer to front parlor to a few other rooms.
Flying overhead Fremea and Raban can tell from the roof there
are two fireplaces I the east side of the home and one on the
north back side of the home. A small fire chute may be a kitchen
on the east side as well. Looking up from about 30 feet up the
neighboring grounds are empty and no one is seen.
Fremea reaches the back first and notices a back door. She
see the other two structures on the left but figures they are
utility buildings. She lands on the ground and eyes the windows.
There is one window (H21) that looks open. The curtains are
flapping in the wind and she eyes the ground for tracks but
sees nothing but a small garden of bushes along the back wall.
Soon Raban lands and points out the back door to Fremea.
Fremea knows the giant can take care of himself and waves
him inside. She moves toward the window.
Inside Unali finds a man this time not in uniform but
dressed like a city worker or servant in light tans and
black pants. This man in his 20s is knocked out but not
dead. Unali can tell from the side of his left temple he
was knocked out.
Kiet can hear movement inside a room down the hall and
waves for Unali to join him. Kiet rounds the corner and
enters a room which is a den/library of some sort. As
he enters the room Kiet can see Fremea climbing in the window
on the back wall on the left side of a desk. Unali joins
Kiet just as Fremea lands on the red carpeted floor. All
three eye each other then eye the man sprawled out on the
thick leather desk chair.
The man dressed clearly in naval uniform with bars has to
be the Admiral. He is in his 40s and quite muscular. Fremea
checks his pulse and sighs. She inspects the wound in his
chest just at his heart. A deep puncture wound by some kind
of blood. The blood is still wet and not thick which means
he died not long ago.
Suddenly from the front of the house Niko's voice is heard.
He is shouting something. Then he must've found the new
body and yelps. Then he continues. He gasps trying to
speak fast. Kiet and the others join him in the hallway.
"Men at the gate..a dozen or so...saying we killed the
guards! They are trying to get past Etain at the gate!
Kiet looks to Unali and rushes past her. If Etain dies
there is little chance of finding her parents without some
of his help. Raban, Kiet, Fremea and Unali head toward
he front porch. Fremea is first to see a bunch of guys
at the gate trying to get past Etain. Etain is pleading
with them but will soon be overwhelmed by the mob.
"There they are! They are attacking the admiral!" One
"Fetch the city guards!" Another shouts.
"Save the admiral!" A third yells and pushes Etain back.
three of the men push Etain back and he falls to the ground
over the guard's feet. The people on the porch seem to
count at least 8 entering through the gate.
These men in their 20s and 30s are tough street looking
citizens. They are not so well dressed but based on their
dull grays and blacks they must be workers of hard labor.
Those who can see at this distance see some tattoos and
that's when they are figured to be dock workers That
may explain their loyalty to the admiral or maybe they
are just sailors on his ships.
"I can grab him and you guys can flee out the back over
the tall hedge?" Raban looks down to Fremea.
The men entering the grounds are now 50 feet from the
porch. They are carrying daggers, knives, branches from
the ground, some even rocks and a few carry clubs.
"What...what is going on here!?" A voice is heard
behind the group at the front porch. Unali can see
the man who was knocked out standing with hand to his
GM: Wanted to do a bit more. But I ran out of time. I'll
try more next week. But I think its a good place to stop.
Next week I'm off Monday and Thursday so can work on
updates early if things work out. Forgot about the
pets again. But added info below the updated map.
Couple details not followed in update due to time.
Side Door K16 near Kell/Will.
Arawn/Z'lerya will not likely hear the noise out front as
they are 140 feet from the front of the house and then around
Slight hcance that Will (80) and Kell (100' away) from th
efront of the house may hear the noise.
