Warehouse Standoff

Postby ManthisFocht » Tue Feb 22, 2011 10:41 am

The last Watchman outside opened the bay doors to the warehouse the rest of the way and the rancid yellow cloud of noxious fumes began to dissipate. The exhausted Watchmen and adventurers alike all took a moment to catch their breaths, wipe the vomit from the corner of their mouths, and assess the situation. Thanks to Pilin's healing the only 2 people to suffer grievous injuries were already well on the mend, and crumpled on the ground were 4 male drow warrior types and a noticeably better dressed female drow, the hostage. All 5 dark elves seemed to be dead, and even if they were not, several of the adventurers made damn sure they would never rise again.
The cadre of watchman went out to the street to do some crowd control, allowing the 6 volunteers to have a look around and do the evidence collection for them. One of the guards lingered to keep an eye on the bodies to ensure no "evidence" was taken unlawfully.

Amongst the drow warriors, the arms and armor were quite simple and unimpressive:
4 Rapiers
4 Daggers
4 Chain Shirts
Simple robes, clothing, belts, etc.

The Female, however, seemed to have a little bit nicer equipment. Beneath the folds of her robes...
1 MW Cold Iron Dagger
MW Short bow
Quiver of 20 arrows
1 much nicer arrow, left in a separate sleeve of the quiver

((Please post below any interest your character has in any of the listed items, the watch may or may not allow you to make off with the loot, and they are watching :evil: . If you are taking any other specific IC actions to follow up, be it investigating the tunnel, trying to gather information, etc. Please notify me via fPM and I will get you the information))

Pilin would make it known he would like the heads of the drow if none other did. Otherwise, split what of the gear the Watch would allow to be taken along with the reward they had mentioned may or may not be available.

Aside from his own arrows, which he removed from the chest of the 'hostage', he would very much like the quiver of arrows and single arrow. The bow is obviously of lesser quality than his own so is of no interest.
Makin - 6th lvl (Cleric of Amaunator 5 / Combat Medic 1)
Ogmios Vox - 1st lvl (Bard 1)
Fios-Khelek Heru (Grunt Ka Thunk) - 20th (Rogue 3 / Wizard 3 / Frostmage 4 / Arcane Trickster 10)

Asakurai would like the MW Cold Iron dagger and the head of the drow that disarmed him if at all possible. He would also appreciate the reward that was talked about by the gaurd.

Howard, being a collector and user of daggers, is also going to put forward a claim on that piece of equipment...after he's done going about the business of assisting the Watch in assuring the drow aren't rising again in any form other than undead.

Other than the dagger, coin is good.

in response to howard taking the dagger asakurai would let him have it and would then ask for two of the rapiers and one chain shirt.

If he can't have 2 rapiers he would settle for one and also he would ask for the coin as well.

Zathe would be interested in any single or combination of the following items: daggers/rapiers/any clothing
(only if the rapiers are of higher quality than masterwork, and if any of the daggers is of higher quality than a simple dagger, since he already owns MW rapiers and a normal dagger.) If none of those options are available, Zathe would request any completely unneeded item, as a sacrifice to his deity. Gold is fine, as well.

having gone over his items in inventory he would rather get a chain shirt and then 40 gold and if at all possible 2 rapiers if that is not ok then 1 rapier and if he is asking for too much just a chain shirt and 40 gold.

All of you pile the loot and begin to sort it out amongst yourselves. Just when you think you have equal shares based on everyone's preferences, the Watch Leader returns and chuckles a bit.
"Not so fast now, we need some of that for evidence..." He says, moving in and picking through the loot himself, ruining all your work. "Them drow heads is worth something you know, big bounty..." He adds, rifling through the drow possessions.

In the end, here is how it breaks down:
Claudio: 20 drow arrows, Dagger, 97 gp
Howard: MW Cold Iron Dagger
Pilin: "Special" Drow Arrow
Asakurai: Chain shirt, 1 Rapier
Jax: 200 gold
Zathe: 100 gold, and some odds and ends to sacrifice

The Watch Leader tosses you all a sack of coin as "payment", though not very much. And leaves with the rest as evidence and the Drow heads as the Watches bounty. ((Many of you mentioned taking the Drow heads, their value was added into the treasure level. However, if anyone wanted the actual physical head, just deduct 50 GP from your take and you are welcome to keep one, there are 5 total. XP/GP will be added shortly, if anyone wants changes made to their take grab me OOC or post here and I will make the changes.))
