Chapter 1 The Sword Throwers Club

A city of mysteries, secrets, and dark histories, Ptolus lies forever in the shadow of a towering stone spire reaching impossibly high into the sky, itself an enigma and a reminder of evil long past. Ptolus is a place where the supernatural is expected, and treachery lies around every corner—or is it that the supernatural lies around every corner and treachery is expected? Either way, Ptolus is a city of danger, magic, intrigue, and above all: adventure.

Drimnar accepts the notice, tipping the tramp a silver. Reading the card, Drimnar leaves from his chair at the guild and puts the book back on the shelf from where he got it. After some time, he arrives at the Sword Thrower's Club. He knocks on the door for entry, as it's locked when he gets there, and shows the card to the person who answers.

Mazzoane, not originally from this area, at first did not understand the invitation and was about to throw it away when someone looking over her shoulder told her it was important to go to the club. So, she grabbed her sword, and wondered the streets until someone was kind enough to help her get to the club. She is now waiting outside the club, not sure what to do.
OUT OF CHARACTER
Mazzoane updated in Adventurers.

Lorelei sits across the way from the Sword Throwers Club, pondering her invitation thoughtfully for nearly an hour, before she shrugs to herself, walks across, and knocks twice on the door.

A guard in the regal colors of the city council opens the door.

Lorelei pushes her sienna cloak hood back just far enough for her eyes to shine up at the guard.

Drimnar says nothing. He only shows the invite and waits for the escort inside.

Drimnar brings the note closer to the man's face. [talk]It's on the card, but if you cannot read, My name is Drimnar. This card is my business.[/talk] He shakes his head in pity at the man. He says nothing further there after.

[talk]Master Bard Treye, perhaps you will regail us with your music once your meeting is over with. as for the rest of you, go upstairs, go straight to Room 3 and do NOT touch anything. Do not talk or even look at anyone. you are guests here and so long as you do as told, no harm will befall you. do otherwise and you will find out exactly what happens.[/talk]

Blah, blah, blah. I only care to know who summons me and for what purpose. I could care less about your little club and it's treasures. Drimnar leads the way to where the guard directed.

Is this excluding Treye, or was Treye among the invited to go upstairs?

Any specific Knowledge? Or just a generic Int roll? Presuming it's Generic Int, here is my abysmal roll:
Int: 1d20+2=6

all BUT lorelei please read spoiler

[spoiler]the 3 of you realize about the same time that the swordthrowers club is owned by one of the more predominent families in the city. you don't recall the name as they are not from a circle that you frequent. one thing that you DO know is that in the local political arena, they have bene making HUGE leaps in the council. they have been pretty much unbstoppable in any of their ventures and some of the opposing comittee members have been "out of town" when crucial votes have come up. however looking over at lorelei you see somewhat of a confused stare[/spoiler]

you all gather upstairs in front of the meeting room and Trey being one of the most society knowledgable of you knocks once loudly on the door.
from the other side you hear a brusky sounding voice say [talk]ENTER[/talk]

This game will be closing. I apologize to all players who had invested time in this PbP :cry:
