Those devilish creatures!

Postby ManthisFocht » Wed Apr 06, 2011 11:17 am

Rumors have begun to circulate regarding a distressed refugee coming to the north gate of Waterdeep in the fading hours of sunlight yesterday. Badly beaten and hysterical, she reportedly told guards of small, devilish creatures, small like children but with old, leathery skin and fangs. They sacked her small hamlet, killing everyone and everything there, including her children. She managed to escape with her life, but those who saw her speak could tell her mind was gone.

((This is a lower level scene, 2-5, potentially scheduled to run around 5-6 chat TOMORROW, 4/7/11. Please post if interested below and contact me OOC or via fPM if you would like to make any rolls with regards to the hook -Jimmy))

Antiny(5), being a recent landowner, would wish to lend his hand and items of hurting to fix this situation.

If you'd rather I stay closer to party Average I also have Dalton (3) Who just joined the city watch, and would love to be a hero.

Zathe would be delighted to join!

EDIT:
Unfortunately, I have some business I must attend to at 6PM chat time, today. I may just be reading the OP incorrectly, but I could attend if the adventure took place from 5-6PM (chat time). If it goes past 6, I'm afraid you'd have to count me out on this one. My apologies.

If my group doesn't get together, I have Yaelina to toss at this. (4th-level.)

...and since Jimmy's one of the four, I think I'll just call it and see who we get on Saturday.

The trio of nasty, stumpy, tough, evil little bastards has finally been defeated. As you take a few moments to close your wounds and catch your breath, the three of you begin to inspect the village... though you soon wish you hadn't.

Though many of the villagers lay dead in the dirt and mud of the village commons, what awaits you in the stone building could not have been prepared for. An additional half dozen villagers, a couple of children among them, hang from nooses attached to the stone buildings rafters.* Unlike the villagers outside, these appear to have been tortured to a sickening degree. Their faces and bodies are bloodied from countless lacerations, impossible to tell if the cuts were calculated or inflicted as part of some blood lust rage. The smell is just as unbearable as the sight of it, and after standing in shock for a few moments, the combination forces you back out of the building. In the commons, a quick scan reveals that the bodies of the devilish gremlins have vanished entirely along with their equipment!

Amongst the burned buildings, smoldering grasses, and heaps of bodies of the perished village, there is nothing of value, or clues as to why this village was attacked in such a brutal fashion...

((I'd like to wrap this up some weekday either this week or next week, Monday excluded. Please post availability below.))

* - ((The scene in Braveheart does this some justice. I was unable to find a you tube link for it, though.))

Thursday I'm watching Nacht's scene, which will have my full attention. Any weekday afternoon through evening I can make.

I can do 26 and 27. Saturdays I can only half promise to make because my business can put me on a buss with 30 minutes of warning.

27th is actually no longer good for me, unfortunately, which puts us into May (UGH!)

May 1, 3, 4, or 5th?

*Bump/Reminder*

If May 4th still works for everyone, we can plan on round 2 then, say, 5 PM Chat?
