Last man on top [Grug]

Sharn, the City of Towers, is known as a place to find anything. As Night rises, this city's mettle will be put to the test.

Last man on top [Grug]

Post by shai-hulud » Mon Oct 15, 2007 5:27 pm

With Rain gone, Jear tossed over the balcony, and Sunim running after him, Grug is the only one left on the balcony. He retreats from the spikehead, and surprisingly, it doesn't follow him. It begins searching underneath him for Krusk, but finds nothing. The guards fire upon the beast and it charges them, trampling all three of them to death. Then in returns to the spot where Krusk had been, sniffing around, trying to locate him.

Grug moves to the lift and waits while it comes back up so he can go below and attempt to find his friends.

After several moments, a beautiful elf woman appears next to the spikehead and begins leading it across the bridge. The spikehead is no longer frantically searching. It follows her willingly. Does Grug do anything besides wait?

Intrigued by the turn of events with the spikehead. Grug decides to follow along at a distance.

Grug, not being very stealthy, stands out, even at his great distance. The beautiful elf woman turns back, smiles at him, and motions for him to come closer.

Grug stays put for the moment trying to access the situation. (Sense motive check?)

She just seems friendly. Maybe she recognizes Grug.

Grug moves caustiously ahead (to about 20 ft away from her), maul in hand and giving the spike head a wide berth.

As Grug approaches, he realizes that this is the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. He would do anything to help her (Failed a save versus Charm Monster. Your roll of 4 could not be helped with an AP). As he approaches, her face scrunches up and she say, "Oh no! You are injured! Come over here and let me take care of that, poor baby!" (Suggestion, you got a 12, and I will tell you right now, an AP won't help there either).

When Grug walks over to her, she lays her hand upon him and casts a spell. His wounds heal up slightly [9 hp healed]. She casts a second time [5 hp healed]. "I'm sorry, I am out of magic or I would heal you up more. I wish to take this gold somewhere safe. Would you protect me along the way?" (The compulsion does not force Grug's cooperation, but it would take a powerful reason for him to turn her down. Unfortunately for Grug, Charm Monster is measured in days/level, so he will be her best friend for a while.)

Being completely enamered with her beauty Grug still a feeling that he should be going someplace else. "I supposed to find friends." he says to her.

The elven beauty whispers, "You would leave me all alone? What if I am attacked? Don't you care about me at all?"

Grug seems worried for her now. "Grug not leave. Grug escort to safety then find friends." He then moves closer to her and looks around for any trouble.

The woman smiles and puts her hand on Grug's face. "Thank you, brave Grug! Tell me all about yourself and your adventures! I would love to hear about how you became such a great warrior." The elf woman listens to anything that Grug might have to tell her as they walk through the university to another lift, descend to lower Menthis Plateau, then continue on to her safe place to store the gold.

Some specific questions that she asks:

"Who are your friends?"
"Why are you a champion for Clan Boromar? Why not for the Daask?"
"What else is going on with you here? Are you partaking in any lucrative ventures?"

Grug happily talks about all his adventures and freely answers her questions because she seems so nice and pretty. :roll:

As they travel, Grug learns the beautiful woman's name is Il'yuendra. She has Grug follow her through several parts of the city that he knows nothing about. In time, Grug is thoroughly lost, but she seems to know where she is going. Eventually, they arrive at her intended destination. Il'yuendra gives Grug a kiss on the cheek in thanks for helping her arrive safely. "Please let your friends know that I would be more than willing to help them out with their little problem. I know a way that we can get back all that they have lost, probably and then some!"

He blushes slightly after receiving the kiss and big toothy grin appears on his face. "I will tell them Lady Il'yuendra. First, Grug need to know how get back to university?"

She smiles and leads Grug back to the University.

Grug thanks her for her help and wanders around the campus looking for any signs of Jear, Rain or Sunim.

The university is loaded with Sharn Watchmen. As Grug approaches, a watchman says, "I'm sorry, but the University is currently closed pending an investigation of a recent incident. Please come back later."

Not really sure what to do at this point. Grug finds the closest tavern to get something to eat and drink while he waits for his friends.
