DOWNTIME PHASE


quote:
When you try to do something you're not good at, you roll 1d6. If it's a type of action with a dot next to it, roll 2d6. Two dots, 3d6, and so on.

Then, you take the highest result from the roll. If itís a 1, 2, or 3, itís a failure and you suffer a consequence determined by how bad your position was. A 4 or 5 is a mixed, meaning you manage to accomplish your goal but suffer a consequence as well.


Gnarl spots a man who would be perfect... except that he seems like the naturally suspicious type, too. He might be paranoid about a strange redcap approaching him... Better be careful...

(I have decided that the complication is the man's suspicious nature, which cancels out the advantage you might have had in finding a more perfect person.

--roll 1d6 to try to finesse him, OR

--roll 2d6 to try to finesse him, but take a point of Stress.)

DOWNTIME PHASE
Rasal casts a minor illusion spell to disguise his face and heads for the city.  He hopes to connect with some of the Faithful, to form the core of the alliance that he and Gnarl are hoping to build against the Tyrant.

Your brother Kelev, the wandering minstrel and peddler, tells you where you can meet with a member of The Faithful.

(Since you have a point in Banter, roll 2d6...)

Re: DOWNTIME PHASE
In his disguise, Rasal slips into the city and makes his way to a certain potter's shop.  As he examines the wares and chats with the shopkeeper, he asks if there are any vases made from green river clay - the secret phrase Kelev had told him to signal the shopkeeper that he is an ally.

Rasal rolled 8 using 2d6 with rolls of 6,2.  Banter.

The potter and Rasal talk quietly for a little while.

"I'm on your side, sir," says the potter, finally, "but to get my fellow believers on your side... A demonstration of your capabilities would be best. Intentions are one thing, but an alliance is a risky thing in these dangerous times. If you struck the first blow against the Lord Governor-- even if it was somewhat symbolic-- I think I could convince my fellows to stand behind you..."

(A successful Raid would help cement an alliance between the rebels of The Sandstone and The Faithful...)

Re: DOWNTIME PHASE
Gnarl is more used to fighting people then talking to them. He pushes himself to convince the man he can be trusted.

2:32, Today: Gnarl rolled 6 using 2d6 with rolls of 2,4.  Banter + Stress.

Gnarl (takes one stress, and) senses that the man's greatest fear is jail.

Gnarl weaves a potent argument against the Lord Governor and his iron-gloved conservative approach toward law enforcement. "I saw you arguing at those fellows you were working with. You strike me as a very capable individual, but a man with a temper like yours will surely end up in prison for brawling one of these days... or just for disturbing the peace..."

For a moment, the man seems tempted, but then he backs off. "You seem like a smooth talker, redcap, but your problem is that I've never heard of your rebel movement. Make a name for yourself-- prove that you've got what it takes to stand up to Blackgreve-- and maybe then I'll let you give me a new job for a good cause. After all, a man can get thrown in prison for rebellion, too, you know..."

(The man's cooperation might be acquired after a successful raid...)
