S12 - This Smells Great, I've Been Stabbed

Characters: Artemis, Cassius, Krato, Minor, Norma, Estelle, Skender, Dusty 

 

  • We're back in the basement, rolling to see if we can find anything on the pirate. 
  • The pirate says they work for the dreadfleet, and their boss needed the book. He says the halfling was a thief that they hired. They don't know where he's from, but he's very good. He found us when we started our search. The halfling is Zalras Grassheart. 
  • The pirate says not to go to the pirate cove, don't hurt anyone there please. He says their boss is never at the cove. He's on a ship. There's only one or two people who know where the ship is, it's very secretive.  
  • He'd rather we kill him, than telling us anything about the cove. 
  • Before we go in the library, we open the book. "Written by Zinrie Daresh." We see folklore, it's of the coast so we see stories, legends of krakens, leviathans, serpents, giant octopuses. We see something about an ocean guardian, theories of an underwater city. Oyster and pearl, ocean hemisphere halves.  
  • The title stands out to Cassius and Krato. It says "Oyster, just oyster." Just like you can't have a pearl without an oyster, you can't have one without the other. Talks about an artifact that's known to be lost in the ocean. The artifact would be incomplete without each other. No one knows if the artifact does anything.  
  • Tiny picture has one round side, other side goes out and in and out and in and has a couple little dots.  
  • We go to the library, and see Olzira, the librarian, but we also see another woman, who is in training.  
  • We give the book back to the librarian, and she gives us a pouch of money.  
  • Library cards are made for General Razor 
  • We try to leave the library, but we don't roll high enough. We're walking out of the library on our way to the Backwards Compass, and a guard whips around and looks at his group of guards and 5 of them walk up and approach us. Artemis and Estelle keep walking because we rolled high.  
  •  We had to fight the guards lmao how did we fuck up this badly 
  • We split up, with three of us going to the Backwards Compass, three of us going to the boat, and KRATO went to the LIBRARY??? 

 

  • We walk onto the boat, and a wave of exquisite smells overwhelm us. Captain Clive has been cooking with Krum. There's a big feast on the table.  
  • "This smells great! I've been stabbed." - Dusty 
  • Captain Clive asks what our plan for the cove is. Clive estimates anywhere from 20-50 pirates at the cove, plus their families.  
  • To not be treated as hostile, we have to sound like pirates, and look like pirates. We need to disguise ourselves as his crew, and then he'll try to do the talking, but when his crew died and he has an entirely new crew, it's hard to do. But he's late, and his entire shipment has been sold off. If we wanted to infiltrate, it would be hard to pull off.  
  • There is another entrance through the mountain, it’s a cove on the water.  
  • We rest for the night, except for Minor.
