Act I - Choices
Scene IV - By the Hightower, 2nd Day (Thaumont, 2nd, 990 AC)
"If you mean adventuring, yes, it is dangerous and often hurts
" Tatjana replies, still massagin her head. She thanks Lucius, and Turano helps her climb the ladder.
You go back outside and to the Hightower, where sergeant Mikel and the guard who ran after the third men are waiting for you.
Mikel seems quite upset. "He ran away, damn him
- Mikel says - but we have all the others at least
Word is sent for a cleric to help the wounded guard and the wounded slaver, the red hair man. The other man and the three hobgoblins are put into temporary cells for later interrogation. The 3 former captive young men and the 3 former captive girls are given some food and water. They too will have to stay in the Hightower a bit longer for interrogation. They were obviously chosen for health and strenght (the men) and beauty (the women), to be sold as slaves. If asked, they confirm a wizard gave orders to the kobolds, the hobgoblins and the three human slavers, but he was always hooded with his voice muffled, so they doubt they could recognize him.
All the boys and the girls you have help to freed and the 4 guards thank you again and give you their names (I mean you can recognize one of them if you see them in the streets, but I will not write all their names down now, only if you meet them again
At this point, Fortunato, Tatjana and Theosius all say you should part ways now. You are all tired and it's way past the middle of the night. Fortunato and Turano also have still to block the access to the cellars under their houses, as the slavers dug below them.
They agree to meet with you tomorrow by lunch at the Mirror Bay Inn, and Mikel will come too to report what the guard will discover after preliminary interrogations of the slavers and the former captives.
Fortunato thanks you again and says lodging and food are paid for you at the Mirror Bay Inn for as as long as you desire.
"I have a reward for you too
- Theosius says, giving you the promised 3 halav each (gold coins) - even if my original mission overlapped with the Vorloi, you helped stop the slavers and we have captured a fair number of them, so the Torenescu have reasons to be satisfied with this evening's outcome.
He then thanks you again and leaves with his two men.
Tatjana and Turano likewise thanks you and leave.
"Time to go finally to bed I believe
" - Trark says, leading the way back to the Mirror Bay Inn.
(You now have 6 gold coins more each (3 from Tatjana, 3 from Theosius). See the OOC Thread for a guideline on coins and their value. If you want to go shopping in the morning, just tell me here. Unless you check several stores and confront the prices yourself, I will determine randomly the price you find for any item, but purchases will not be final if you do not confirm them!)
