The Streets of Marseilles
The Duke, while a high born noble is smart enough to realize that he has made a mistake as he wanders the streets of Marsailles seeking a proper inn. As distasteful as he found the Trencavel's Tavern the unknown streets of this part  Marseilles are not much better.

As it is early in the spring, the sun is already down and the shadows are deep.

Re: The Streets of Marseilles
You manage to spot the thug who was sneaking up behind you, as well as the two others who are emerging from the shadows. The man behind you is armed with a club. The two others have daggers.



You have time to arm youself and manuver yourself so you are in a corner and they will have to come at you from the front.

Mark a Check for Strategy and decide which weapon you will arm yourself with.

They will move to close with you. You got your move early because of your strategy roll.

They have a higher dexterity so they will get their attack before you.

Re: The Streets of Marseilles
You already made the stratgy roll. It was your wit/2 because of the difficulty. You made it and can put a check.

I will let the 18 go by used as you are out numbered 3 to 1.

Please pick your defence. since you are armed with a fencing weapon you will be able to use reaction parries to parry any melee attacks.

Somewhat hurridly Pier moved his Rapier and M Gauche attempting to parry the oncomming attacks. Fortunatly he managed to parry the dagger which was aimed at his stomach.

23:42, Today: Jean Michel Gaunoux rolled 27 using 2d20 with rolls of 10,17. location.
23:47, Today: Jean Michel Gaunoux rolled 4 using 1d6. extra damage

Attack and Counter. Will use reaction parry as needed.
.

The identity of the dark silhouette becomes clear as he thrusts his rapier into the back of one of the dagger wielding thugs. The thug caught unaware can only gasp as the point of the blade comes out the front of his chest.

He had spotted DeVilfor depart the tavern and had followed him. Luckily he had just caught up in time to join the Duke in the battle and even the odds. He had seen the Duke hold off the three men. While his Grace's skill with a blade was questionable, he had impressed Gaunoux with his determination.

"Your Grace you decided to run off and make new friends without me. I am hurt." Jean Michel Gaunoux said as he prepared to engage the any who attacked him.

00:12, Today: Thugs rolled 19 using 1d20. attack vs Gaunoux.

The club weilding thug spun and attempted to strike the before unseen swordsman. Off balance from surprise and fear, his swing was wide.

"The baron said they would be easy pickings." The thug said, his voice full of panic as what seemed an easy kill turned to something completely different.


Gaunoux please roll a counter attack.



00:12, Today: Thugs rolled 19 using 1d20. attack versus DeVilfor .


The other foe, the surviving dagger weilding would be killer was just as inaccurate with his attack.

DeVilfor please roll a new die for your counter attack.

Pier has an 11 expertise which gives him a base 8 to hit, +2 for rapier, +1 for Counter for an 11.

The thug dodged for a -2 versus attacks.

For a miss.

As a heads up you only roll the d6 if you roll half or less of what was needed to hit.

@ Pier and Jean Michel In future when you roll specify type of attack.

You rolled a fumble on your attack. It seems like you should have a chance to spare yourself the bad effects through skill. So roll under your base chance to hit in your case an 8 or less to avoid the fumble and just miss. If not roll a d6 to determine your fumble.

Jean Michel seeing his own foe was staggered lunged at the knife weilding thug. These men would gladly have killed the Duke with little thought, so Gaunoux showed them no mercy. This was not a duel, it was a fight to the death in the gutters of Marseilles.


23:52, Today: Jean Michel Gaunoux rolled 14 using 1d20. attack lunge.
23:56, Today: Jean Michel Gaunoux rolled 10 using 1d20 with rolls of 10. location 2.

Fumble Result: Twisted ankle 1 point of damage to front leg and movement is reduced by 1/6th.

Both thugs were stunned this round.

Thug with club 4 points to head. Facing Jean Michel
Thug with dagger 4 points to chest. Facing Pier
Other Thug with dagger unconcious and likely bleeding to death.


As the Duke attempted to attack his opponent he twisted his ankle. Luckily his foe appeared a bit off balance himself. He was unable to take advanatge of the Duke's mishap but the thug managed to recover despite his wound and seems torn between fight and flight.

Meanwhile the club weilding thug fighting Gaunoux has also managed to wipe the blood from his face. Pulling a dagger he seems ready to fight till the end.

The man facing Gaunoux tried but failed to parry the deadly rapier thrust.

"You have killed meee...." the man said to Jean Michel as he slumped to the ground. His life's bllod draing into the open sewer.

The knife weilding thug shifts so he can face both his enemies and thrusts at the Duke.

"It is kill you or die at the hands of the Baron!" The was anger and regret in the voice of the knife weilding killer. He was badly wounded already and he was growing desperate.

As the thug missed he left a big opening for DeVilfor's blade.

At your feet lay two dead or dying thugs. The would be assassins have already paid with their lives and the third seems too afraid of the msyterious Baron to surrender.

He would probably try and run but the arrival of Gaunoux has blocked his way.

Like a trapped rat, the thug seems determined to fight.

Even a quick glance upward reveals that whatever windows might have been open and facing the alley have been shuttered. Clearly the locals know better than to stick their noses where they dont belong.

Re: The Streets of Marseilles
Gaunoux knows the man is cornered. His well trained blade could easily finish the man, but Jean Michel hopes the man will decide that he is better off surenddering than he is braving another go.

Gaunoux said "You are out numbered. This Baron might be dangerous, but I promise you at this moment I am a far greater threat."

"If you surrender and tell us what you know, you might survive this, if not you are as good as dead."

"Damn it." The young rogue had not wished to kill the man. But it was done. With a shrug he said "Such is life."

Jean Michel looked at DeVilfor "Lucky I saw you depart the tavern. I was not sure why you chose to depart so I thought it best I follow you."

"I have no doubt you would have defeated them without me, but why chance it? Yes?"


As he spoke Gaunoux started stripping the deadmen. Given his companion's station he did not insult the Duke by offering him a share of the take.


"They spoke of the Baron. It seems likely is it the same Baron D'lie-de-batz the other one spoke of at the inn. Our enemy seems to have followed us here. Best we get back to the others at Trencavelís Tavern. The King of Theives is a bit eccentric but he has given us his protection. I think we are safer there."

Pier crossed to the bodies and cleaned his rapier on the nearest ones shirt.
Th summary judgement dictates these three were to be executed for rebellion and attempted assassination. I concur with your thought on the Baron D'lie-de-baz, however without proof to present at a trial it may prove bothersome. Thank you for the offer, of thpoils...Would you consider pooling whatever is gathered, it would therve to further our groups efforts. After all one has a on the number of weapons one can carry, wield. As to leaving I feel the Archduke is fully aware of the thituation he was thending us into. Tho it appears to be an attempt to remove us for his own ends.

Looking about the area for a building which showed signs of habitation he considered leaving word with its occupants about what just happened.

Gaunoux was a bit surprised that a Duke would want to sully his hands with the few coinds gathered from these scum. what was a few coinds to a man who possessed so much. "My Lord, they have nothing on then you would even notice."

"As far as the watch, I suggest we go back to the King of theives and have him have the bodies disposed of this night. Why waste the the time of tne watch. We know how they died and why. The sooner they are gone the better." Gaunoux was not surprised this time, but nobles knew little of such things.

Re: The Streets of Marseilles
Jean Michel's head hurt a bit as he tried to follow the Duke's train of thought. Like many of the nobility he had been trained to mostly say nothing no matter how many words they used to do it.

"Your Grace, when we are at court I shall follow your lead, but here in the streets, I suggest you follow mine. The reason those windows are all shuttered is because no one will talk. They all saw nothing."

"Let us quickly return to the Trencavelís Tavern. The sooner we are away from here the better. This is the King of Thieves territory, if these men acted without his knowledge he will want to know and he will be in the best position to clear up any complications."

"But you are free to stay.

Re: The Streets of Marseilles
In the darkness of an early spring winter Jean Michel and the Duc de Lyonesse go their seperate ways.

Only going a short distance the young rogue, who while a stranger to Marseilles is more than familiar with this type of neighborhood.

Now alone and limping, DeVilfor heads off on his own.

OOC Gaunoux to the Tavern.

@DeVilfor: Do you call for the watch? Or do you look for an inn? You are a Duke of France and not accustomed to being alone in such squalor, especially in your current condition.

Please remember to role play the sprained ankle.

Make luck/2 and wit/2 rolls please.

Botherations he curses looking around the area once again. Perhaps this bafoons neighbour will be more willing to answer he mumbles to himseld. Finding a broom resting beside the door he uses it to support his weight.

The rather large man who was just involved in killing the three men that now lay in the alley finds it hard to get an answer, much less gain entry to any other tenemants he approaches.

Despite his sheltered upbringing it dawns on the Duke that he is likely in danger of robbery or worse as he limps along trying to find his way in the dark. He can't be certain but he feels like someone is watching him, perhaps even following him.

Re: The Streets of Marseilles
Your words echo through the alley way.

As the Duke readies his pistol he finds a problem. These people are poor. There is not a lock, instead the door is either latched or locked from the inside, though you do hear some sounds inside, but there is no reply to DeVilfor's threat.

OOC You can kick or shoulder the door in with a strength roll. But with a sprained ankle a fail might result in a worsening of the ankle.

Re: The Streets of Marseilles
The windows of the ground floor of the tenement are small and shutter.

There are two windows, a few feet apart. Each is four feet above the ground. They two feet wide and about two and a half high. The shutters are not very substantial but if checked and either bolted or lacted shut if you check them.

Pausing he scanns the area for movenment, the niggling feeling that someone is watching him is still there. Hobbling to the shutters he peeks between them looking to see if they are latched or bolted.

Re: The Streets of Marseilles
The woman seems afraid as do the kids. Looking the place over there seems to be little available should could use to aid you. There is an old table, a few stools, and a fire place with a pot hanging above it.

Truth be told you could almost definetly recieve better care and be safer at the tavern where your companions are all located.

With a shake of the head he thurns and hobbles further down the street. Looking for wider better illuminated streets and buildings.
