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.

Brak leans close to the wizard and explains in a menacing tone just what he can expect if he tries calling for help or fails to answer any questions.

Who are you, and why were we imprisoned here? Morcks asks.

I am Zanzer, owner of this mine...you were sent here after I purchased the rights to you. You were all sentenced to heavy labor.

Question to DM: Is it known to Morck if hiring Gnolls as soldiers is a common practice in the world he lives in?

Common, no, but not impossible or illegal, as long as you aren't hiring them to commit crimes.

And does "purchasing the rights" to someone also something that Morck is aware of and that occurs in this setting/world? I've not much idea where to head with this conversation and my teammates are not very helpful at this time :P :P

Addendum: Is this the end of the module - as we only need to run away and that's it? I don't wish to waste anyone's time if this is a done deal!!!!!!

Its seem the party has become separated and Moe & Siril are out of touch with the others

 

Moe turns to Siril and Siril… Where are the others? Do you think we should go back?

That is much more common, especially in this kingdom. It is thought better to sentence someone to hard labor instead of death unless the crime calls for it. It is possible to buy the contract for the convict's labor term, and is cheaper than paying a free man to do the same work.

No problem here if you wish to keep roleplaying out the module. And speaking of that...

 


Siril turns to Moe, The open wood is before us, if the half-breeds wish to dally, let them. Every minute we linger is dangerous. I'll not head back to be re-captured.


Does Siril have any idea where we might be? How far from the city are we?

Siril waits to see what Moe does.

Moe thinks about what Siril as stated, and with his wounds decides the best course of action is get away from here and quickly...
Image

Moe looks over at Siril commenting...Your right,we should get out of here. This way I think... Moe motions off in the direction he thinks best to leave quickly and un-noticed...and moves out.

Coty watches the two leave, figuring they had a way out. He delays a bit, goes back down the stairs and says I think we have found the way out. Moe and Siril look to be leaving. What should we do? He then heads back up the stairs and continues to watch the two leave.

Siril doesn't recognize the area, so watches Moe.
Moe thinks the larger path is the best direction to head, though following the path from within the forest might be safer, even if it takes longer. He starts to head to the southeast
Coty goes back and let's the others know what is happening.

Morck thinks for a moment then says I believe that by our actions, we are all liberated from any engagements owned towards you - in exchange for your life and your promise not to chase us any further. Do you concur? He asks, fidgeting the dagger he is holding, making it clear which option the Half-Orc would prefer to hear...

If the Wizards nods/agrees, Morck will thank him and take his leave.
If the Wizard does not agree, then Morck will plunge the dagger in the Wizard's gut. Once the Wizard is dead, then he will take his leave.

Coty continues to watch the two leave. He again steps down just a bit and says They are leaving, are you going with? He waits a minute or two for a reply.

If there is no reply, he will say I am going, bye. He then goes back up the stairs and runs to catch up with the other two.

If there is a reply, he will ... (depends on the reply)

Thought I had replied to the latest posts, and just hadn't had any replies since we were near the end, but now looks like my update emails aren't coming through, argh

 

Zanzer nods at Morcks threat. Morck heads up the stairs, dwarves following, and hears Coty call down just before he reaches the top. The workers glance at the group as they head out, but go quiet as they see the dour dwarves carrying their unconscious comrades and carrying weapons claimed from the bugbears. Everyone reaches the path leading out of the clearing without hearing any sounds of pursuit.

Brak eyes Morck's back before looking back at Zanzer. He considers the man for a moment before following his companions.

YOUMorck points, with the Wizard's dagger in his right hand, toward the workers when he clears the stairs.
Where are we, and which is the closest town - and in which direction? He asks with a dry tone, expectant tone.

The workers seem a bit confused, but reply that the nearest town is Coopersburg Crossing, a couple hours walk down the path outside, through the forest.

Morck nods to the workers, and turns to Brak: You up for a walk? he says, starting the trek toward the town, a toothy smile on his face!

The party strolls down the path, the dwarves following behind.
After a couple hours walking, with no sign of pursuit, they arrive in a moderately sized village along the bank of a river.

It seems you are finally safe...

This being a play by post, I think we will call it there. Thank you to everyone that has been playing for sticking this out.
If you want to revisit this world in the future, we can look at doing so.

Thanks for running us! I had fun.

This was my first Play by Post since doing something with Steve Jackson Games back in the early 90's on a dial-up BBS.

THANKS for the fun and for sticking around for the completion of the adventure!!

I hope you liked the experience enough to reprise your role a a DM on the forum... we have so few DMs stepping up to run adventures...

If you are willing to do so with a new adventure, do let me know: I can add blurbs in the next Newsletter (which you guys should be getting from time to time - check here if you didn't - and white list my email) to find players should you need them!

Fun was definitely had on this one. Between games on here and some CRPGs, that's about all the gaming I've been getting.
