After finishing up at the ShadyLady, the stalwart crew that disposed of the threat of Balar now regroup in the guild, after arranging rooms.

Argis sits by himself, in a corner where he can watch everyone in the room.  He absently tosses his dagger up in the air every so often, catching it by the hilt (most of the time).  At one point he does miss, narrowly avoiding the blade, and the dagger clatters to the floor.  He scowls, and puts it in it's scabbard, then starts flipping a copper instead.

Darius sat close by, his staff leaning against the wall besides him. He was scribbling something in a small journal; those who'd come closer would see spidery writing and sketched maps. As the server approached Aegis, he spared a small glance upwards, but was soon writing again and only listened in with half an ear.

Aegis grunts as much as anything else in response to Madeline, then responds.  "I kill stuff.  They do the discreet things..." as he gestures to the rest of the group around him.  He then leans back in his chair, and takes a nice long pull from the large drought of ale in front of him.  He'd gone with something a bit stronger after their success with Balar.  Quite simply, he had enough coin to sleep it off upstairs if he needed to.

Aegis leans back in his chair and takes another long pull from his ale.  He can barely control his mirth, and doesn't want anyone to see the large smile crossing his face.  The very idea of this group messing with the mage's guild was hilarious.  He could only imagine how much chaos would ensue.  People might get killed, stuff might get burned...  The whole idea just seemed like it would be a lot of fun.

Once he could control the smile on his face, Aegis responds "Soonds lik fun."

"Just because the victim died, doesn't mean he can't answer questions," Darius said. He sat down next to Aegis, a choice he immediately regretted given the alcoholic smell emanating from him. He closed his eyes, as much for shutting out their environment as to to recalling what he knew of the mage guild. If only he'd paid more attention to the organization and doings of those with less elegant magical abilities.

Aegis laughs heartily at this, combined with a belch.  Overall, the explosion of mirth from his mouth causes small droplets of ale and drool to shower everyone in front of him.

Either Aegis doesn't notice, or could care less.

Instead, he responds with a rather large and somewhat sadistic looking smile.  "Weesh I cud see dat fer meselv.  Got lotsa secrits ta shere.  Luv to sea da luks on peeples' faces."

The thought of that kind of chaos just makes him smile a little more.  The ability to get back at all the people who wronged him even after death...  Well, that was something he could drink to, and so he does.

'BRRRRRAAAAAP'

He feels much better after a second belch.

"An idiot?" He smiled. "How could they tell?"

Darius leaned back, then noticed a small droplet of hopefully-ale on his sleeve. "Unfortunately, curing stupidity turns out to be more difficult than curing death."

He wiped the droplet away, then turned his attention back to Madeline. "Since replacing such a representative is always possible, there's probably just three reasons they'd poison him. Personal issues, a statement, or a temporary advantage for a rival of the guild. Do you know anything of the latter?"

Ooc: Melchizidek's god is Helios, effectively Appollo, a god of sinlight, song, good, and healing. Neutral to Chaotic good, for those who use that parlance. Judgy, prudish, and concerned with burning bodies he is not.
Neither the god, or the character as written. Breathe. If attacking the oppressive hotbed of sorcery and its minions are not for him, there are other groups; this setting is designed for West Marches style play, where groups form and reorganize.

Darius looked after Melchizidek leaving, a slight smile on his lips. "Despite our very... different outlooks," he said, "and despite my disagreements with the Mage Guild, there are things I will not do." He looked around the table. "Do not take this as anything more than a personal limit. I will not hinder or betray you. And, indeed, I wish you success in that task. I just will not join."

He bowed slightly before saying goodbye and leaving towards the main guild hall.

Cost of living is $150 a week. Masugatan, if employed as a caravan guard or ahem, collections and debt enforcement agent, would, at his point level make $60 per day. A common guard makes $30, leaving them to work 6 days if they want to do more than break even. A 250 point character makes $120/day and barely needs to work in order to break even.

Simple temporary company is a silver. Wierd shit can be up to 2 gold. Tell you what, make three carousing rolls and then spend 1d6 silver on things you can't talk about in polite company, and I will add some rumors and social entaglements to your character once he sobers up. A failed roll can end up either in a fight to the death (bloodlust will roll) over a spilled drink, or a heath roll vs a visit to a temple for a cure.

Probably fine.


Aegis spent enough time drinking hard that he doesn't clearly remember what happened, although he does recall one long conversation  with a wizard of some sort who had a dark beard but gray hair, and had star spangled robes, and kept playing cards by himself,  about the harsh policies of the guild preventing free exchange of knowledge, and a habit of taxing and harrassing practicioners who are non guild members, and price fixing on sales of potions and paraphanalia.


Investing in a contact, and eventually an ally works fine, as does "Favor" which could be used to build more as well. Drop 4 points, and you have a 62ish point ally that wont leave your side...

OOC  Aegis has found a working girl he likes.  I'll put in a character point towards a Contact.  She *might* like him back.  In fact, if she is interested in a sort of arrangement, he might even consider cohabitation or something like that.  Aegis is getting older, and would like at least the illusion of stability.

Now given that Aegis has...few redeeming qualities as a partner...  It would have to be more of a business arrangement.  Also, Aegis isn't the most stable of people to start out with, so it probably won't be entirely friendly.  But, it will give him a reason to come home...and likely a reason to run back out on another adventure the very next day.

Please let me know how much you would like me to provide, and how much you will supply from your side.

Masugatan  could go for a little armor, I am sure.

A cornocopia quiver of standard bolts costs $2010, for fine bolts, +$4000

A piece of cloth torso armor has a base cost of $53 (neck, torso, groin), with sleeves, $78 before hitting it with the CF for silk, so that might ve slightly higher. The main value in this material is that you can stack it with thieves mail (or any other armor) without the associated penalty. (And it is hella lighter as well)
As per DFRPG, fighter types xan take Armor mastery for 5pts, which gives not only a removal of those penalties for stacking, it gives DR+1 if wearing armor with DR2 or better.

DF does not use rugged or expensive modifiers.
Cornocopia quivers hold one bolt and nothing can be put in them. You can get bodkin only for the same price.


Masugatan, you might want to upgrade from DR2, maybe replacing the leather for a DR5 cuirrass for $1890. It is, after all brigandine,  and you are very nearly a brigand. A helmet might help too.

The brigandine  gives you DR 5 in the groin, torso, and neck area. A helmet wouldn't hurt either.

Most folks with tactics who can see heavier torso armor than head will aim for the head.
DR 5 helm costs $450, an extra $180 for a visor ($360 for an intimidating one that would get you a +1 on intimidation, and -1 on other reactions)

Stenet would probably get along fine with a fellow demon hunter, even if it is a Wizard hunt.  Probably made pacts with demons.  Should definitely look into that with some hot pokers if necessary.

I am looking at cooperative character play. If Dne spends 6 more points, Masugatan would be raised up to 187...or at least the proportion of it, which is really around 194 at this point... if Dne drops 12 points,  if you are doing the equivalent of playing your own henchman, then it should be mechanically incorporated. I try to have players keep only one character per tnread if at all possible.

Re: Back in Town
Aegis can be in or out.  He's plenty happy with his current activities, but I'm willing to bet a decent archer, even with his unsavory qualities, would be welcome...

Re: Back in Town
With jednesa and Masugatan accompanying Christine, Aegis should back up Rheanna and Dne.


I will ask if there any other takers,
 and suggest some healers.

Re: Back in Town
If only we could get Gareth.  Aegis would have no issue with his particular view on things, as long as things didn't get creepier than he himself is.  That allows for a lot of license...

Lol, he will be back, and probably looking for a new crew given his current popularity!
