Day 2 -> Still on the lamb

Groggily waking up with a parched throat on a hard floor in a room smelling of stale, unwashed bodies is never the best way to start your day. Realizing that you aren't alone and that one wall is made of bars and not stone like the rest just means that it's going to be even worse than you thought. Your life will be getting very interesting, very soon. A one-shot module for level 1 characters, the players must escape their imprisonment, or face the consequences.

Siril puts on his best, "I work here too and I'm busy" look and walks out the door, nodding to the workers if they look his way.

Coty slips up to the top step to look out and see what's going on. Once he sees what is happening he prepares to summon a horse away from the party members, trying to distract the workers.

Siril moves toward the door, Moe following behind. Siril's act seems to be working, and one of the workers nods back at him before speaking.
Hey, did you see the boss while you were down in the mine? He forgot to say how many barrels go into the next wagon to the coast.

Both workers groan before the first replies. OK, thanks for that.
They turn back to loading.
Siril reaches the door. He finds that they are in a clearing, but he can see trees further away in all directions, suggesting they are in a forest. he sees a road heading to southeast and a smaller path leading around the corner of the building.

Unless I'm mistaken, only Brak and Morck are left downstairs with the dwarf captives and the wizard, correct?

 

Brak eyes the wizard dangerously before turning to the dwarves and motioning to the stairs. If they move toward the stairs he then motions to Morck before eying the wizard again before lifting him and slinging him over his shoulder.

ok just a small recap to make sure:
a) Did we search the Wizard?
b) Did we just bind the Wizard and left him alive?
c) We didn't question Zanzer at all about our situation, right? (like WHY we're here and all that)

Correct. 2 of the dwarves are still conscious, one is dead, three are unconscious but stable.

a) You searched his body once he was down. Siril found the healing potions in his belt pouch.
b) Yep
c) Nope

 

Brak motions at the dwarves, but they indicate that they want to take their wounded and dead along. They can each carry one, but that leaves two still down.

Some less petty than others...and Moe wasn't even jailed at all. Everyone's backstory on their character pages had a reason they had been arrested (except Moe, who was drugged in a tavern). Then everyone had PM's (again, except Moe I think) that covered how their time in gaol ended up with them here. I don't think you ever really shared them all with each other, so take that as you will...

I see. Did Morck check for magic on the Wizard? If not, he will get back down and do so now. Otherwise, he will go up the stirs as silently as possible and try to escape.

Brak nods in understanding at the dwarves and pulls the wizard off his shoulder, setting him on his feet. Brak then asks the dwarves to hold the wizard for him, this time motioning them to hold him in place.

Besides the lingering auras from the spells & scrolls that Zanzer had used during the fight, Morck detects two items that Zanzer had dropped when he was rendered unconscious. A dagger and a wand.

As Brak releases the wizard, the two dwarves hold him in place.

Morck picks up the two items, then turning to Brak These are Magical. I must admit I am a bit curious as to his story pointing at the Wizard. Shouldn't we ask him a few questions? he asks the Barbarian.

Morck then looks at the Dwarves (not sure how many are standing) and asks Or do you guys already know why this magic user works with Bugbears?

The dwarves look at each other before one responds. They act as guards and I've seen them move filled barrels on occasion. We were also threatened with having a session with one if we weren't cooperative.

Brak gives an evil smile as he says Sounds like its time for him to have a session with me before sinking his fist into the wizard's stomach.

The dwarves reply that the barrels are filled with the salt that has been processed from the mine.
Meanwhile, Brak plants his fist in zanzer's gut, leaving the wizard doubled over and trying to gasp for air through his gag.

Seeing that the workers really don't care about people coming up the stairway, he will go to the door.
OUT OF CHARACTER
If the horse is because of Coty, he just prepared to summon it if the workers reacted poorly. Since, they did not, he did not summon it.

Any hints we can get about Salt in the Barrels? i.e. things our character would know that we wouldn't?

Coty moves to the door as Moe steps out of the building and peers around the corner.

Moe can see a number of buildings, including an obvious stable, as well as people moving around in the open. A couple are lightly armored and obviously armed. Even the closest building is far enough away that he doubts he could get to it without beings spotted at least once, to unknown results. Forest surrounds the clearing the buildings are in on all sides.

Morck gets close to the wizard.
Listen. We need to talk a bit... and my friend here is pretty pissed off already, so would you agree to both answer our questions, and not cry out if I remove your gag? Obviously should you try anything, well... you can imagine what will happen to you... Morck grins evilly as he states the last past, showing his canine.

If the wizard nods yes, Morck will remove the gag so the wizard can speak. Does he agrees?
