From Dorhak: [Re: Actions]
I meant mace, shield and throwing axe.
GM: Ack. I figured. :)
From Wout: [Re: Discord]
Sure go ahad and let the main
list know of the discord. Any resource is
welcome. May not use it too often given time zone differences.
GM: Ack. Thanks this does not replace
the great work or list you did for years. Just
figure a new resource. As to time that doesn't
matter. The channels for text are see
anytime. So you visit when needed. I think your
the only one to not come in yet. But optional my friend. Not required.
[Ma 3rd, 1636TH]
[Time: 5:05 am Besam, Eastern Lands]
Dorhak makes this decision quickly,
for two reasons. He speaks the common language
the best, plus, he's responsible for his crew. Any penalty awaiting is
his alone to endure.
In Marentian, he says, "Ill be going
with them. Raddok! Will you hang onto my gear
(sword, shield, and throwing axe), please?" Its
more of an order. "Zleyra! Keep these
miscreants in line while I am gone. If you dont hear from me in, um".
He turns to Gnorf and asks in Dwarf
Elder "how long will we be before I can report back to my crew?"
Gnorf shrugs, depends on fast you
talk. The Elder is inquisitive so may have a lot
of questions. I'd say 20 minutes to an hour?
Back to Zleyra and Marentian "if you
dont hear back from me in two hours, then figure
out a plan. Preferably one that assumes Im
still alive and includes coming to get me. Make
sure you keep a guard up and dont let them
surprise you. I have no idea how this is gonna go."
Dorhak sighs as he glances at
Arawn. The one who fled to a pirate ship and
gets captured. The one he threatened not to get
next time. Now the captain wants rescue. Dorhak
figures Arawn will have an opinion on that.
Raddok takes Dorhak's shield &
weapons & sets them at his feet for the moment.
He can carry the weapons if they move, but
Dorhak's shield would have to be attached to his
own - a bit awkward, even if do-able. Then again,
they were supposed to remain here & might surely
be being watched. He's tempted to just sit down &
rest, but feels uncertain in this new place.
Raddok looks around, as the others
are doing. He feels they should be doing
something so tosses a couple suggestions to
Z'leyra to find what she & the others might be thinking.
"Would this be a good time for some
quick naps? Half can stand watch & the rest sleep
a half-hour, then we can switch places. If not,
how about some food & water? I'll help stand 1st
watch, if you want. A short walk out around this
spot might be useful." He then grinned. "I'd
rather not have to carry all Dorhak's weapons
though. I'm strong, but they're heavy, and I dare
not leave any behind." He laughed, amused at
himself. He then reached for his pack's side
pouch, pulling out a slightly dirty cloth, and
begins to wipe down all the weapons he is now carrying, including the shields.
back again to Gnorf and Dwarf Elder
Dorhak speaks, "Shall we? Wouldnt want that ale
to get too warm, now, would we?"
Gnorf waves 2 Besamar over. He nods
and one pats Dorhak down. Whats with the r
ed anyways? Gnorf asks as he waits.
Once checked Gnorf waves the 2 to
follow Dorhak behind. He speaks a few words in
his Besamar language and glances at 2 more of his
allies and speaks more words. As Gnorf leads
Dorhak into village with 2 escorts the other 2
take the raider horses into camp.
Gnorf stops at a campfire and checks
a casket and pours himself some ale. He grunts,
got warm! Now the sun will warm it more...best
during the night cool down. He grunts and places the mug on the barrel.
He leads Dorhak to a large hut of
wood and thatch. He raises a hand and tells
Dorhak to wait. He then enters the hut after asking permission.
Dorhak watches around as the horses
are taken to the side and gear unloaded. A
couple villagers search the bags and probably
dicker on new loot? One examines the horses to see how fit they are.
[Time: 5:17 am Besam, Eastern Lands]
Gnorf finally exits and waves Dorhak
entry. Dorhak enters the dark hut and wonders if
this elder will be wearing a loin cloth as
well. Before Gnorf closes the door and leaves he
whispers, we are healers. I notice your group
has wounds if you need help? Then he closes the door.
Dorhak takes a few seconds to adjust
to the darkness. Then notices a being stir in
the corner. A candle is then lit and the captain
sees a non-bearded dwarf. This one does have a
few gray hairs but is definitely older than the ones outside.
I am Burl Oakenheart. Step forward so
I can get better look. Why the red ?We in this
land aren't..as colorful. Gnorf tells me your
story. But I want to hear it in your words. How
you got here. The dealing with the dead
man. The raiders and this stolen item. What
makes the item so special you come here for?
Dorhak cringes inwardly on the book. Why it was even mentioned?
Outside Fremea considers flying to
the hut to listen in or stay to watch the
party. By now the villager guards have entered
the village. While two stand watching the party
they go about their business. Some see Gnorf
greet a couple female Besamar. These wear
flowers in hair and like the men wearing loin
cloths wear only a leather or cloth bikini
suit. Some of the villages are slightly obese
and Dorhak figures they are lazy but maybe this is their way.
The elder sits up and grabs a mug of
tea. He goes to stoke the now coal fire pit to
get some fire going. If you satisfy me your
group will be allowed in the village. We will
deal with things after. The fire flares up as
he places a bot of tea to warm up on a pole over
the firepit. How this place doesn't burn down
with all the fire and thatch is a wonder but also
shows good craftsmanship of the fire pit to avoid blowback.
Looking around Dorhak can tell the
elder is a stone mason based on his tools and his
hands. He can't tell if he is a rune master as
little clues are around. The hut is small with
bed, small table, cupboards and cabinets.
The Elder moves to a rickety chair
and motions for Dorhak to sit if he wants. He
folds his hands on his lap and waits.
A young female moves and carries a
couple mugs and a bucket on her head. She moves
to the party and offers water if needed. Raddok
translates and wonders if the water is a trap?
GM: Actions? Comments?
Next update...Wednesday or Friday?
GM: A short update needing mainly
Dorhak's input. Will try to do update Wed or Fri
depending on time. Thanks to all those who came
to the Discord server its fun to see the new
folks from the pnp list come in. The activity is
also nice for a good start. Feel free to post
and do stuff there on your own.
