S11 - My Stats Say Stealth, but my Heart Says Performance

Characters: Artemis, Cassius, Krato, Dusty, Minor and Estelle 

 

  • We pick up as Dusty and Norma are leaving the morgue. 
  • We head back to the basement of the Backwards Compass to see Umbrous. We start talking loudly about the murder, and say how impressive it was. Estelle offers to suck whoever's dick that did that. 
  • There's a pair of goliaths in the bar, and one walks up to us and asks us to keep it down because we're disturbing the other patrons. Everyone in the bar is looking at us like "what are these guys doing?" 
  • We go to speak to Elris, Umbrous's second in command. We tell him about the murder, and he says he has received some information, but our payment has been fulfilled, so they want 4p to give us information.  
  • We each pay 50 gold, and Elris tells us, "One of our employees got a bit of information. She saw a child with a bunch of, in her words, scary men. When she went up to see if the child needed help, she realized it wasn't a child but an adult man. They went into a house in the lower city." They know that this is one of their previous safe houses that has since been compromised. They think this would be the individuals we're looking for. 
  • The house is in the SW side of the lower quarters. From the sounds of the description, the men with the smaller man (halfling or gnome) were pirates. The halfling was not dressed like a pirate, but was in an all black cloak. If we can let him know when the shit is done, they might want to salvage something from the building. 
  • As we leave the speakeasy, we can hear Genifine in the main room behind the employee door greeting people. We hear the clanging of metal as they hear footsteps come in. "Hello ma'am we're conducting business, doing interviews. Have you heard the names of Minor, Skender, Cassius and Krato? There might be others with them." And Genifine says no, so the men leave. 
  • Artemis, Estelle and Dusty head out into the shop. The guards are heading west, stopping and talking to other people.   
  • "My stats say stealth, but my heart says performance." -Minor 
  • We investigate the house that the people went into, but there doesn't seem to be anyone in there yet underneath us seems hollow. We find a cellar door outside, so we knock and try to open the door. 
  • Estelle uses her anklet of transmutation and zoops inside. She sees a chain with a lock locking the door in, and a staircase going down. As Estelle unlocks the chain, the door at the bottom of the staircase opens. Nhel monologues and convinces the pirates that we've got a job for them. 
  • The pirates don't want to accept our job. We head into the basement and start fighting. 

 

  • We find the book, and "A gift from your pal, Zalras Grassheart" is written on it
