Re: Chapter 1 Group 3- The Slums
Head still down, his voice elevates slightly, as if with interest. "Are you really that well-paid?" He waits quietly, eyeing the man through a slit in his hood, ready to be attacked.

13:07, Today: Prizzard rolled 13 using 1d20+12. Intimidate.
ooc: I wonder if with a 1 he can even tell I tried to spook him..

Re: Chapter 1 Group 3- The Slums
Prizzard: The man doesn't seem phased. He gives a shrug. Whether I am or not it doesn't matter. What matters is how generous YOU are. He arches an expectant eyebrow. Or, I could always call for a little help from my companions to deal with a nosy trespasser....

"Be reasonable what you ask of me" He removes his hood to reveal his face. "Men like me are not known for their generosity."

Re: Chapter 1 Group 3- The Slums
Schan decides to sneak up on the man and find out why he is watching him. He tries to act inconspicuous as he moves to where the man can't see him and then tries to find a way up on the roof.

Re: Chapter 1 Group 3- The Slums
Schan: You manage to make it up to the roof easily and you find that the man doesn't notice you until you are almost on top of him. Then he draws his Katana and stands to face you. His face is covered so that all you see are his eyes. He holds his ground and speaks. Well, I take it you are looking for your master then young monk. His words sound amused, as though he is mocking you.

Prizzard: The man frowns in thought. Ten. I will let you through for ten. Take it or leave it, although I suggest you take it. He arches an eyebrow. He motions to the doorway with his head as he speaks. I guess it all depends on how badly you want in there, though I don't know why you do frankly. If anyone finds you in there you are a dead man.

Re: Chapter 1 Group 3- The Slums
In thought: "Like I need the attention. Damn, I'd rather not waste this gold.." "Fine. Ten. Why should I care about being found here anyway?" He hands the man ten gold with his usual cautious procedure and then places his hood back on as before.

Re: Chapter 1 Group 3- The Slums
Prizzard: The man gives a smug smile and then gestures you through the door with a mocking little bow. Apparently money is more important to these men than loyalty, which is unsurprising in the slums. You find yourself in a small shack with tables, chairs,and cupboards that are barely hanging onto their hinges. You are able to find the trap door without difficulty however, and soon find yourself going down a ladder into the darkness below. When you are finally off the last rung you see that you are in a wide tunnel that is dimly lit by various lanterns scattered here and there on the walls. There is dripping in the background and your shoes are wet from the floor. In the distance you hear voices approaching, echoing as they get nearer. You see several other corridors to your left and right as well as behind you.

Re: Chapter 1 Group 3- The Slums
After moving one corridor in the direction of the sounds, He stops to listen carefully.

If I have time, i'll take 10 on the Move silently, if not..
12:12, Today: Prizzard rolled 3 using 1d20. Move Silently.
And I should be able to take 20 on listen, or atleast 10 since there is no threat and I know there are noises to hear. If not..
12:15, Today: Prizzard rolled 8 using 1d20-2. Listen.
Draw Scythe, stay back in the shadows.
12:16, Today: Prizzard rolled 7 using 1d20. Hide.

Re: Chapter 1 Group 3- The Slums
You hear the following from the voices approaching: Well, did you actually see the empress's daughter? If so why in the world are you here with me? You should have taken your chance man! Do you know how much gold that kind of ransom would bring? The empress would give half her kingdom for her safe return! Half! You hear the other person start to defend themselves but by then they have turned the corner and they spot you. Hey! What are you doing here?! One snarls, and draws his short sword.

Re: Chapter 1 Group 3- The Slums
"I come seeking Koros and Jeannder. My name is Prizzard, known as The Shadow Scythe." I remove my hood. Not to intimidate, but to confirm my identity to them. I draw my scythe, but not assume a combat stance. "I am not looking for a fight, But I will kill any who wish to hinder me." That was the intimidation.

12:27, Today: Prizzard rolled 14 using 1d20+12. Intimidate.

Re: Chapter 1 Group 3- The Slums
The pair seem duly intimidated, but not terrified. Your name does seem to give them pause though. Why do you seek these men? I cannot give you any information if you have harmful intentions. That is if I can give you any at all. I only know places they tend to be not where they are at any given time.

Re: Chapter 1 Group 3- The Slums
"Harm, no. Jeannder is a contact of mine and Koros is one whom I have heard may have information I need.. Answers.. It is personal." His scythe swings bihind him onto his back, its resting place. "I would greatly appreciate your assistance. I apologize, but I am getting low on gold. Your door guard is a greedy man."

Re: Chapter 1 Group 3- The Slums
The man seems satisfied with your answers and puts his sword away. Jeannder is on the north side of town at the moment. It would take a day or so to get to him. Koros, however, is near. I will get his permission and see if he will see you. As for your money, as much as Koros responds to it, he will likely give you your information in return for a favor. Be wary though, he can demand a high price for anything you find valuable. Would you like me to speak to him?

Re: Chapter 1 Group 3- The Slums
The man nods at your question. You may travel with me to see him. Be warned though, he will not like you knowing his location so if he decides he doesn't want to help you your life may be in danger. It is up to you.

If you decide to go with him you soon find yourselves traveling through the tunnels for a few miles until you find a staircase that leads up into the basement of a large house. He bids you wait in the tunnel for a few minutes while he speaks with him. After what seems an eternity he returns and leads you up through the hallways of the house until you are led to a room where a dark haired man is waiting. He is a handsome man, though his face has many scars from the harsh life of the slums. The house though, seems to be a fine one. He appears to have done well for himself financially. Koros gestures for you to sit, his eyes studying you intensely, a frown on his face. So this is the famous Prizzard eh? And what information exactly do you want out of me? I trust you have been told it will not come without a price?

Re: Chapter 1 Group 3- The Slums
He removes his blade and places it by the door before heading to the seat "Yes, I have heard you request favors. The information I seek should be simple for you though." Sitting, he returns a stare to the studying eyes. "I need to find out who killed my tribe. I am from Rashamen, Faerun, and the only survivor I know of from a chain of slaughters along the southern border nine years ago. My survival was surely an accident.. I have been told you know something."

Re: Chapter 1 Group 3- The Slums
Koros gives a small smile at your words. Yes, you are right that I such information is easy for me to come by. Especially as I know the answer already. However, as I can see it is of great importance to you I am able to ask a good price for it. When I tell you what you want to know, you must swear to me that you will do this task. I have a grave enemy. His name is Loden, and he is the captain of the empress's guard here. Find him and either kill him or bring him to me. My sources say he is leaving the city within the hour, though where I do not know. You should leave soon if you hope to catch him. As for your question, the people who killed your family are known as the followers. They belong to a dark cult who worship evil gods and deities that we haven't even heard of. In return for their sacrifices of innocents, their gods give them great powers and rewards. They are a dangerous group and one that is full of secrecy and darkness. Bring me Loden and I will tell you where to find them. If you do not bring him to me, I will have you killed. Those are your choices man.

Re: Chapter 1 Group 3- The Slums
Nodding in agreement, he answered as he walked to the door to retrieve his weapon. "If you truly want him alive, Do you have anything I could use? I am not skilled in capture or healing. A potion of Cure Minor Wounds perhaps?"

Re: Chapter 1 Group 3- The Slums
ooc: If you noticed, he informed you that he was leaving the city so you can start looking for him outside the city. As for my not posting, I was interrupted and didn't get the chance to finish. I didn't forget about you. And yes, I am aware that he left with the adventurers. That is kinda the point.

ic: Koros gives a small smile at your words and then nods. Done. I will give you a few supplies you may find useful. He will be headed north outside of the city, though I'm not sure where his destination is. You will have to track him or find someone who is skilled at tracking. Either way bring him back here. Though if you do end up accidentally killing him I suppose I will get over it.

ooc: Roll search and spot, as well as any intentions you may have before leaving. He also gives you a few cure minor wounds potions.

Re: Chapter 1 Group 3- The Slums
"I suppose I will have to find a tracker. My truest skill is surviving, not hunting." He accepts the potions, setting them in his gold pouch. After swinging the weapon back in place, he walks partway out the door before questioning. "How long do I have before you consider the job abandoned?"

22:03, Today: Prizzard rolled 14 using 1d20-2. Spot.
22:03, Today: Prizzard rolled 6 using 1d20. Search.

Re: Chapter 1 Group 3- The Slums
Koros gives a grin. You have one months time and then I will have you killed for failing me. As for a tracker, take Halak. He gives a whistle, and suddenly a boy, no older than 12, emerges from a nearby doorway. He is well kept and clean, which is unusual for children in the slums. No doubt Koros keeps his employees well looked after. He has a grave and silent face, pale and wide eyed but also he possesses the expression of one who has seen far too much at an age too young. He gives Koros a nod and stands by your side. The boy is the best tracker there is. But he's small and young. If anything happens to him you had best kill yourself then for when I catch you it will be worse than death for you. I loan you to him in interest of your task. Keep him safe, get Loden, and return. Now off with you.

ooc: I'm moving you to the hunting chapter now.

Re: Chapter 1 Group 3- The Slums
"I am no babysitter and I will not be responsible for the life of a child. Allow me to hire one with.. fewer consequences. I'll pay for one myself." With another glance at the boy, he waits for an agreement. If it goes as well, I will hire a tracker. The trackers duties only include tracking, not fighting. I'm keeping this cheap. Once my mark is found, the tracker may leave.

Re: Chapter 1 Group 3- The Slums
You find that Koros is insistent. Take the boy Prizzard. He is the best and I want this done quickly. He needs no babysitting either and he will be no trouble. He can find his own way home once he points you in the right direction. I have offered you a great resource and would be insulted if you refused. And trust me, it is not a good idea to insult me. If you run into Loden, the man will not harm the boy. It is not his way. Just have him get you started and then he will return to me himself. Understood?

Re: Chapter 1 Group 3- The Slums
"Fine. This should not take too long." He leaves, making his way quickly and carefully to the nearest city exit before heading to the main gate Loden should have left from.
