Another night at the office...

Postby A.J. » Sun Apr 06, 2014 6:26 pm

It was a night like many others in the Grinning Lion, packed near to its limits, costumed dancers weaving through the crowd, the barstaff, nearly as adept, often in their wake. Burgon, Aurius, Tothethlear, and Hamilcar were there spaced throughout the crowd. Toth was the first to spot the hooded man casing one of the many nobles patronizing the place. Others would follow,but it would be Toth who would confront the shady-looking individual. That's when he would notice the man's trio of friends, but before Toth could act, the man had sunk his blade deep within the neck of the noble and dashed for the door!

What followed next was a blur of fire, arrows, and panic. When the dust settled, Burgon had saved the noble's life, and the others had chased down and slain the would-be assassin and all but one of his cohorts, who escaped into the night. The Watch would arrive to corroborate the party's story with eyewitnesses.

Drawing breath again, the noble, one Gilbreth Phull, was happy to hand out all the gold on his person to those involved in saving his life. He invites you all to a feast and has one of his footmen take your personal details and promises an invitation to the family's estate. Further questions find him too distressed over having been nearly murdered to answer at this time , but he promises to aid with the investigation in any way possible once he's recovered from the ordeal and safe behind the walls of his family's estate.


(( Thanks for playing. Mr. Phull's payment runs about 140gp each once divvied up. A handful of daggers are found on the assassins you killed, but nothing more. Feel free to fpm me if you have any questions or if you're interested in playing out the banquet. Until next time!))

Hamilcar happily accepts the invitation. He himself was a little disturbed to have to resort to burning men alive, which was always gruesome. But he thought that it was completely justified given the unfortunate situation. Hamilcar was also very appreciative of the gold.

Burgon will of course graciously accept the offer of hospitality. He is lured on by the prospect of not only a feast, but the possible connections to be forged with an influential noble. What new business this may bring his way...

Since the assassin left some daggers behind, Burgon will try a quick Detect Magic on them all. Unless of superior make he elects not to keep such a distasteful reminder.

((I totally can't believe we saved Phull. What irony! A nice twist there that I wasn't expecting. At least it gives the other party more chance to clear themselves)).
Of course it's evil! Kill it!

Aurius will gladly accept the gold, and any of the spare daggers. He will attempt to make the banquet, assuming adventure or commerce dictates otherwise.

(( *A* Phull, not *the* Phull, but still, a link in the ol' plot chain! ))
