Ch2 2

Peter|GM: The camp is at work at various things. Even isolated, there are still relics to appraise, findings from within the Arcolith that looms over them.
Alianor rolled 4d6 and got 1, 6, 4, 4 ( Total: 15 )
[OOC] Alianor: -1 LP for 2 successes
Peter|GM: Waves wash over the shattered black stone beach.
Folis lets out an enormous yawn before rolling out of the bedroll and starting to suit up. She still feels a little grim, but refreshed after a nice long rest. So there's that small spark of light. Setting aside the Air Arcoreactor, she picks up the grimoire "Palace of Light" and brings it with her. Maybe even just its title will inspire a bit more courage.
Alianor spent some time last night looking over that tower shield from the Arcolith, experimenting with the various chemicals once again, as well as doing some various striking tests on it.
[OOC] Peter|GM: B][Bounce Magic - 1/1 - Activate when blocking Fire/Water/Air/Earth damage. True Strike an enemy other than your attacker for damage equal to the incoming value.
Le Masked Buccaneer is up, practicing his swordplay. He's stripped down to pants, a light undershirt…and his full helmet and mask. Victorieuse is recently sharpened and gleaming, or perhaps it always is that bright.
Folis: "Man, Masky. Do you realize how ridiculous you look?"
Kit gives Folis a wave as she nibbles on a small cookie, swinging her legs into the air as she sits on top on one of the few crates left after the Captain took much with the Lucky Molly
[OOC] Echo: 1/1? You said it was 2/2 when I picked it up
[OOC] Peter|GM: Hmm… I guess it's 2/2…
[OOC] Peter|GM: Whoops~.
Folis picks up Kit and lets the doll perch on her shoulder.
[OOC] Echo: Okay!
There's a small piece of paper torn from a journal folded and placed in the front cover of the Palace of Light. A note, written in Lobelia's handwriting, that explains the energy contained within and how to use it. "No charge, but, if you happen to know a good teahouse in a town we stop at… ;) " . The winky face is, of course, a bit more detailed than that- she's studied a bit of art, you know.
Peter|GM: The Shining Wall reacts strongly to a typical test, a thin beam of magic - it reflects perfecty.
Le Masked Buccaneer: "Indeed, it would be hard for any thinking person to not feel ridiculous having been so hornswaggled!"
Le Masked Buccaneer: "And I, a fellow ship captain!? If I had a first mate any longer, I couldn't show my face to her."
Folis lets out a little snort at the note. "With the tone of this note, it almost sounds like they mean 'cathouse' and not 'teahouse'…"
Folis says this more to herself, quietly, than anyone else.
Peter|GM: The waters to the north are calm. One could swim to the Towers - those spire-like isles, their shores crowded with dunebrush and scrub, teeming with shorebirds - and then navigate through them to the continent proper.
Kit: "Cats are cute, I'd be ok with that"
Peter|GM: (Echo spotted the cookfires of a village that way.)
Folis just groans.
Le Masked Buccaneer: "There is no better way, is there."
Kit: "Well, I'm cute, and I'm a Cat!"
Folis: "Oh man… it's… I'll tell you later."
Echo: "Hmmm. What do we want to do now? The empire's left, but so has our ride… And there's still some of the Arcolith left to explore."
Le Masked Buccaneer: "Well…for a thousand coin, we could have a finer ship still."
Folis: "See if we can find a damn town and get our bearings."
Le Masked Buccaneer: "So perhaps…press on?"
Folis: "Yeah that."
Kat points back into the Site with his little saber, to which Kit firmly rebukes with "No, The Kind Lady and Miss Wintervine should be there for the Dragon, and since they are currently indisposed, it makes more sease to find a possible port!"
[OOC] Kit: Sense*
Le Masked Buccaneer: "Ah! So across the water, then?"
Echo: "I did a bit of scouting last night, and saw a fishing village in the Towers."
Folis: "What?! Really? How far?"
Kit: "Just please keep us dolls from submersion, our source of energy wouldn't react well"
Echo: "Maybe a day's travel."
Le Masked Buccaneer: "Shall we head there, then?"
Folis: "With as much haste as we can muster."
Peter|GM: Swimming to the Towers is a Strength or Agility check. [-You swim safely, -You can tow some wood behind you to keep an item (or the dolls) dry.]
Le Masked Buccaneer whirls his sword once last time.
Le Masked Buccaneer: "To the towers, then!"
Echo rolled 4d6 and got 3, 2, 5, 2 ( Total: 12 ) for Strength
Peter|GM: Echo dives in - with bearlike strength and a natural affinity with the water.
[OOC] Folis: Is that for each of us?
[OOC] Peter|GM: Yup, it's for each of you! Unless you're towing the dolls, I only need one success, though.
Le Masked Buccaneer quickly strips down to his (fine, silken) small clothes, wraps his possessions into a fine rucksack, and AWAY HE SWIMS- he's still wearing the helmet and mask. Whoever remarked they were disappointed when he took them off clearly got to him!
Le Masked Buccaneer rolled 4d6 and got 3, 2, 2, 1 ( Total: 8 ) for Agility
Folis rolled 3d6 and got 2, 2, 5 ( Total: 9 ) for Strength
Le Masked Buccaneer: (Hah! How much LP to make that work, then, 1?)
Alianor reluctantly strips off her jacket and putting it away her in her pack, double-checking that all of Priscilla's valves and all are shut tightly, before divinging in herself.
Alianor rolled 2d6 and got 4, 1 ( Total: 5 )
[OOC] Alianor: -1 LP
[OOC] Echo: -2 LP to haul the dolls across
[OOC] Alianor: Svad, you'd need to spend 2 LP to score a single success, you need 5 or 6 to succeed
[OOC] Alianor: need to roll a 5 or 6^
Le Masked Buccaneer: (Gotcha! Spending 2)
Peter|GM: Echo, as you're traveling across the channel, swimming swiftly with the dolls in tow -
Peter|GM: There's a shiver down your back, a prickling in your ears.
Peter|GM: And Kit sees what it is - swooping away from one of the towers, circling and hunting, is a tremendous hunting bird the size of a wagon, a Grail Hawk!
Kit: "Big bird, incoming!"
Folis: "What the…?!"
Peter|GM: It comes for Santiago, its tremendous scoop-like beak running deep through the water, funneling up a furrow as it skims low to catch him -
Peter|GM: (…But you succeeded, so you dive out of the way!)
[OOC] Kit: Use Sorcery to try and scare it away?
[OOC] Peter|GM: He's okay, he passed the roll. :>
[OOC] Kit: kk
Le Masked Buccaneer resurfaces a moment later, water streaming out of his mask. "Foul fowl!"
Echo makes sure everyone's okay before continuing to the shore.
Peter|GM: The hawk rips its beak upwards after soaring past, swallowing a deep gullet of seawater. It caught a few fish, it seems - but no Santiago, and soon the party are reassembled on shore.
Peter|GM: The Grail Hawk banks to the right, heading deeper into the Towers. It might show itself in open spaces.
Folis: "Okay, just saying it now that we're gonna have to take care of that fucker eventually."
Le Masked Buccaneer: "Indeed."
Le Masked Buccaneer reassembles his armor quickly enough, once on dry land.
Peter|GM: Dunebrush and beaches. The first sign of the great hawk's departure is seen on the beaches - the little plovers come out from hiding first, followed by the seagulls, picking through the dense seaweed for their meal.
Kit helps her brother pull the little raft onto drier land, before trying to decide if it'd be better to leave it or bring along…
Peter|GM: The islands are closely packed. Forging north will have a few crossings like that, but most of them should be able to be forded by wading.
Kit opts to leave it, and gets ready to forge on
Alianor is definitely checking to make sure that Priscilla is fine before worrying about her own wet clothing, especially if they're not done wading through water.
Peter|GM: Hmm - yeah, Priscilla will be okay, after a moment to wipe her dry.
Peter|GM: (You wouldn't want to leave her to get soaked, but the parts are built to handle longer dips than that.)
Echo shakes himself dry-well away from the dolls.
Echo continues heading in the direction of the village.
Peter|GM: Through the middle of the Towers, keeping covered, Echo?
[OOC] Echo: where possible
Peter|GM: Along a cramped passage between two of the islands, near the dense middle of the archipelago. The salt smell picks up a rotting tinge, where seaweed lifted by high tide and caught there has not had chance to dry out in the sun. Little clouds of beachflies buzz in racing clouds around your feet.
Peter|GM: And there, on the spire wall: Counting marks in red-pigment, at waist-height.
Folis: "Well that's ominous."
Alianor: "Is it just me, or is that just a little ominous?"
Le Masked Buccaneer: "I'd go with 'very'."
Echo: "Yes."
Peter|GM: There's a sort of fish-trap, running through this channel - they swim in from one side with the current, and are trapped against a net.
Peter|GM: Looking closely, there must be about twenty of them caught here.
Kit: "… Could be just a fishing spot used by the villagers"
Le Masked Buccaneer: "A hopeful conclusion!"
Echo: "…rather unlikely with how far away we are from them."
The dolls move ahead, checking around for other possible traps (( Stealth? ))
Peter|GM: Kit: Yes, definitely.
Kit rolled 4d6 and got 3, 3, 4, 1 ( Total: 11 )
[OOC] Kit: -2 LP for a success
Peter|GM: The dunegrasses swish and close up over the dolls as they go poking about ahead.
Folis: "What?!"
[OOC] Peter|GM: …In the "they vanish into cover" way, not in an "eaten by a plant" way.
[OOC] Peter|GM: Sorry <3
[OOC] Folis: Oh I was thinking like… Halicarnassus traps. xD
Peter|GM: Kit and Kat return soon enough.
Peter|GM: Up ahead, the channel opens up, facing out towards another island.
Peter|GM: In this narrow little canyon, it's hard to see more just yet, though.
Kit: "There's a fork ahead, there's likely monsters down the right path, and they may have gotten just the breifest sight of us, so they maybe on lookout…"
[OOC] Kit: briefest*
Folis: "So we're fightin'."
Le Masked Buccaneer: "Well! Do we want to deal with that problem /now/ or later?"
Folis: "Now."
Folis: "Before it bites us later."
Echo: "Alright." He makes sure his shield and club are ready before heading down the canyon.
Alianor: "Wouldn't want them sneaking up behind us while we're busy with something else, I guess?"
Kit: "Dunno, they have a language, maybe we could talk to them, but… I don't think they'd be receptive, just a bad feeling I have."
Folis: "We'll see what happens on the field of battle."
Peter|GM: To the right, there's a campfire that's just been abandoned - little logs pushed aside, ashes buried with sand. There's rustling in the grasses just beyond, circling, chattering.
Peter|GM: Bones are strewn alongside it - fish, birds, rats, and - a human skull, too.
Peter|GM: Whatever made it must be nearby.
Folis: "Spooky."
Echo takes a look around, warily.
Alianor grimaces, looking a bit pale at seeing that human skull. "I think I'm inclinded to agree they might not be receptive."
Le Masked Buccaneer has his sword out. "I can but agree."
Peter|GM: They come running for Echo first - four kobolds - demihumans, little mongrel lizard-rat-beetles - their walking sticks over their shoulder, their long, makeshift hunting knives forward. They howl. "Ye-taaaaaaa! Chaaaaaarge!"
Peter|GM: Alianor and Santiago gain Drive. Folis may Quicken.
Folis darts to the front!

Peter|GM: "'cause you haven't killed a human yet…!"
Alianor: "If you even think any of you are going to be touching Priscilla with your filthy hands, I'll give you a bullet with your name on it!"
Le Masked Buccaneer watches the kobolds move, gauging their speed and pattern. "And now you never will." He suddenly lunges for Kobold C, knee slamming into the softest, Rattest part of the kobold he can find, as he attempts to hurl it to the ground and skewer it

Kat, now empowered, spins around, and builds a flame at the tip of his saber, and when he stops, taps the flame onto the ground, before diving away!, Kit says "Hit the fire, so it explodes!" [Cluster Bomb down in front row with the Kobolds, and C-Launching it for +5 on the explosions 1d10+10]
[OOC] Kit: err, guess it'd actually be 1d10+21 in total, after the E-Power II as well
[OOC] Peter|GM: Yup!
Peter|GM: Round Five - Showtime!
Peter|GM: Folis!
Peter|GM: The Cluster Bomb has 20HP.
Folis: "What a pain! I guess I'm just going to have to finish you off the old fashioned way!" In a flash of speed, Folis darts forward with a blur of a staff-swipe that sweeps Rough A's legs, which she follows with a brutal body blow, knocking the wind out of them! [Overdrive: Spinkick -]
Folis rolled 1d100 and got 7 ( Total: 7 ) for 80/0

Folis: "Hmph!"
Kit blinks "Or, that works too, sorry Kat"
Peter|GM: THE COAST IS CLEAR. All threats have been eliminated. Got +3 EXP.
[OOC] Le Masked Buccaneer: Curse you kobolds! 2 short.
Peter|GM: The smoke is still rising from their hastily buried campground.
Folis starts searching about, seeing if there's anything worth salvaging.
Alianor: "Hmph, serves them right."
Peter|GM: They covered a wooden chest in cut grasses to try and hide it. Inside is… 75G, and a few worthless goods and trinkets.
Peter|GM: There's a few pots nearby of foul-smelling reagents. Maybe their medicine is made from it?
Le Masked Buccaneer: "A fractious lot."
Folis: "Some gold, some weird smelling shit that alchemists might be interested in. Maybe."
Kit: "Well, at least the gold will be useful"
Folis: "Five of us, right? 15G each."
Folis starts divvying out coinage.
Le Masked Buccaneer: "Not even enough for the sanctuary. Ah, well."
Folis: "I still got some of that medicine they were using, if I could even call it that."
Folis: "Probably has a real hard crash when it's over."
The dolls shrug
Peter|GM: The village shouldn't be too far ahead after this.
Folis keeps pressing onward.
Le Masked Buccaneer shoulders his sword and follows. He's not scratched, for once!
Peter|GM: There's a small wooden bridge running over the waters between one of the final islands to the shore.
Peter|GM: There, a small cove, and a fishing village, on stilts above the water.
Peter|GM: Smokepits are dug just on the outskirts, being prepared by villagers dressed in water-soaked cloth as they stir the fire to readiness for the coming catch.
Peter|GM: A loose trail runs along the coast to it, to a larger building marked with the sign for an inn.
Le Masked Buccaneer: "Ahhh! GREETINGS!"
Folis: "Hello, friends!"
Peter|GM: A man holding a spear, his hair long and bound in a single braid, turns away from his post to wave.
Kit: "Hiiiii!"
Peter|GM: "Greetings…!" And then, he laughs.
Peter|GM: "You're all soaked. You trudge in from the towers?" And beckons you over.
The dolls look at themselves in worry!
Alianor: "Unfortunately, yes."
Peter|GM: (Well, the dolls are fine.)
Le Masked Buccaneer: "Indeed! AND BEYOND for there was quite a lot of swimming involved."
Folis: "That's pretty much it!"
Folis: "I've probably done the most swimming out of all these folks."
Peter|GM: Another laugh. "C'mon in, c'mon in, we'll seat you at the inn. Name's Capan."
Echo: "Echo. It's a nice village."
Peter|GM: He calls out to the others as he heads into the village - "Showing these folks in!" "Who the heck are they?" "Heck if I know. Shipwreck?" "You better find out, Capan…!"
Peter|GM: The inn is a round building, organized around the central hearth. A catwalk-ring is built up around the high roof, forming a sort of loft-second-storey, lined with bunks.
Folis: "Wow, this is all really cozy looking."
Kit: "Not shipwrecked… Marooned?"
Peter|GM: An ox-hundred is sweeping up. Capan waves to her. "Patience, you've got guests."
Peter|GM: She looks up. "More guests? Better mannered than the Imperial, I hope-" she pauses when she sees Echo. "- Hmm, he's clanned. Well, the manners aren't in question."
Peter|GM: Capan looks between Echo and Patience, the ox-Hundred.
Echo chuckles.
Folis: "It's a long story."
Peter|GM: "Seat yourself for now," Patience says, gesturing, with broom, towards woven grass mats.
Echo sets his shield and club carefully to the side before taking a seat.
Peter|GM: "Capan, go find the Imperial patrol. I don't want them walking in on us," she tells him.
Folis briefly takes a moment outside to wring out her tail, then goes to sit, letting out a puff of breath.
Peter|GM: And there Capan goes.
Peter|GM: He pauses in the doorway - "What do I tell them?" "Oh, bother them about our kobold problem, will ya. They're their responsibility now, at least."
Peter|GM: - And then, he's gone.
Folis: "So I gotta ask right off. What's the deal with the Imperials here?"
Le Masked Buccaneer carefully puts his (now sheathed) sword aside, and sits down, attentively waiting for the answer to Folis's question
Kit looks around as she seats herself on a mat, Kat joining her quietly, the two also listening for the answer
Alianor goes and sets her pack down by Echo's eqiupment before taking a seat, though Priscilla's still at hand - whether she actually needs to do the maintenance to it is anyone's guess.
Peter|GM: "Well, we're on Ecafan land, technically. Well, we paid them a tax, and could bring any dispute that went to blood up to their court."
Folis: "Whose blood?"
Folis snorts ill-temperedly.
Peter|GM: Patience rubs her horn, thinking. "Oh, y'know. Someone gets drunk and goes swinging, or a spat over fishing ground goes up to thrown spears, usually. Well. Do remember a few times it got worse."
Peter|GM: "But if we needed law, the city was there, I suppose."
Peter|GM: "Anyway, ever since the Imperials stormed in, we've been hearing a lot more about Ecafa. There's, hm… one of their houses that was extinguished, a noble family or somethin'?"
Folis: "(For now.)"
Peter|GM: "The occupyin' force reinstated em and put them in charge."
Folis: "Fun."
Peter|GM: "They've been prosecuting another family since then. All up and down the geneology lines."
Le Masked Buccaneer turns around in his chair.
Peter|GM: "Executions, even."
Le Masked Buccaneer leans forward intently.
Le Masked Buccaneer: "Could you perhaps name the houses?"
Peter|GM: "House Rivorando has been reinstated,"
Peter|GM: "And the Sevilles are being hunted."
Alianor: "Sounds to me like someone's bringing back old feuds now that they've got Imperial support, or something like that."
Peter|GM: Patience laughs humorlessly. "More or less."
Folis grooooooooooans.
Le Masked Buccaneer sighs.
Folis: "It never eeeeeeeeeeeeends."
Le Masked Buccaneer: "I don't suppose you have any fresh oranges?"
Folis: "Or a stiff drink."
Peter|GM: Patience walks over to a straw barrel, plucks an orange out of it.
Peter|GM: "Sir Masked Buccanneer,"
Peter|GM: "Catch."
Le Masked Buccaneer catches it in gauntleted fingers. "Ah! My reputation proceeds me?"
Peter|GM: "Well, that's a reputation's job."
Peter|GM: "You got a lot of people out of Ecafa, didn't you? And now you're back." She sits down on a mat by the lot of you.
Folis: "So, do we have friends here, then?"
Peter|GM: The Ox-Hundred looks at Folis, for a moment. And then, at Santiago.
Le Masked Buccaneer: He pulls a small knife from his belt, and carefully carves the orange. "Just so. As many as my sweet Retidão could carry, and then some more."
Peter|GM: "It's a good thing what you did. But they'll burn your house down if your grandfather helped a Seville across the street, these days."
Peter|GM: The fragrance from the peel, as the knife parts it - it's home.
Peter|GM: "If the Imperials find you in this village…"
Peter|GM: She pauses.
Folis: "Pah."
Peter|GM: "Promise me you won't leave a single one alive."
Folis: "That's the general idea, isn't it?"
Le Masked Buccaneer: "Ahhh…" He holds the orange, pulled open like a flower. "Such a promise I would be a cad not to grant. Where do they billet?"
Kit: "Wasn't planning too, at least"
Folis: "… What, they got a bunk here?"
Peter|GM: "They do. Where else would you stay?"
Folis: "Then I got a real low-down, sick idea, like."
Folis: "Do we still have that weapon, friends?"
Folis: "That particular rifle."
Alianor: "That's still at base camp last I knew, anyway."
Peter|GM: Patience gets back up to sweep, feigning a plausible deniability of what plans get made.
Folis: "… Well, shit."
Le Masked Buccaneer: "I have a simpler plan."
Folis: "What's that?"
Le Masked Buccaneer: "I'm going to walk out there, call them motherless dogs, and we are going to kill them."
Folis: "Oh, that's…"
Folis: "Far safer than using poison…"
Folis: "… honestly, I feel a little sick for having thought of it in the first place."
Le Masked Buccaneer: "We all have our weaker moments, my dear Folis."
Le Masked Buccaneer stands.
Le Masked Buccaneer has already eaten the orange. Did his mask ever come off?
Le Masked Buccaneer: "Now, my friends, shall we go outside?"
Folis: "Yeah, sure."
Echo picks up his gear, then looks at the innkeeper. "We'll try not to make a mess."
Folis: "Ashes aren't that hard to clear out, I don't think."
Alianor stands up and stretches, fetching her jacket out of her pack first. "A simple enough plan, indeed."
Kit: "… Wouldn't that just bring the Imperials down on the Village though, I mean, after the patrol doesn't report in?"
Echo shrugs. "They never made it back to town."
Kit: "All for messing up their day, but I don't want to see the village come to harm for it"
Kit: Oh, ok then! "
[OOC] Kit: +"
Le Masked Buccaneer picks up his sword. "They can't very well blame a village for the Masked Buccaneer sweeping in, can they?"
Le Masked Buccaneer: "After all. That's what a reputation is for."
Echo: "I was going to blame the kobolds, but…"
Peter|GM: "I have a broom, my clanned friend. Messes can be cleaned up." Patience says.
Echo: "Fair enough."
Peter|GM: "Capan should be stalling them out on robber's road, that way-" She points to the trail out of town.
Peter|GM: "Good luck."
Folis: "I mean."
Folis: "If luck is with us… then we'd basically be robbing them when we're done…"
Le Masked Buccaneer: "Be well. If anyone asks, I was twice as tall and three times as terrifying."
Folis: "Providence is weird like that."
Le Masked Buccaneer: "That it is."
Le Masked Buccaneer changes his walk on his way out. This is not Adventuerer-Dungeoneering-gait any longer! This is Black-Sails-On-The-Horizon-Walking.
Folis wonders if Bucc is secretly an Exalt.
Peter|GM: Who could say?
Peter|GM: Out on the Robber's Road, Capan is arguing with the patrol.
Kit follows along, trying to keep a low profile…
Peter|GM: They're five strong, in Imperial black-and-red. Two of them as armored as Echo is, with heavy shields strapped to their shoulder, carrying axes.
Peter|GM: The other three are carrying rifles.
Le Masked Buccaneer pauses as they come into view. He turns to the others. "Might I make the introductions?" He speaks softly, so that the Imperials will not hear them yet.
Echo nods.
Folis: "(Go for it.)"
Le Masked Buccaneer walks to the center of the road. He clears his throat. He draws his sword. His armor shines, as it does on proper occasions, and Victorieuse gleams in ancient green. "MOTHERLESS DOGS! BEASTS OF THE EMPIRE! THROW YOURSELF UPON THE GROUND AND CRY MERCY, OR I SHALL MURDER YOU WHERE YOU STAND, BURY YOU ALL IN NAMELESS GRAVES, AND TAKE ALL THAT YOU OWN IN THE NAME OF THE BROTHERHOOD OF BLACK SAILS AND
Folis rolls her eyes. But… well, she shouldn't really be saying anything, really.
Peter|GM: The patrol scramble to arms as Capan slips away!
Peter|GM: …Santiago enters [High Tide]!
Le Masked Buccaneer: "TO THE DEATH, THEN!"

Peter|GM: Santiago!
Le Masked Buccaneer leaps forward, skipping off the stones of the highway and landing atop the shield of the Guard that had slammed into him. "Not enough! Not today, not tomorrow, not any day; I'd send you to a watery grave if I had the boat, but the earth's grip it will be!" He stabs hard, riding the blow down as he comes down past the shield's guard.

Alianor nearly collapses as she sits down on the ground, still taking deep breaths, though she's still careful of handling Priscilla. And levels a glare at Folis.
Alianor: "Never. Do that. Again."
Alianor: "…Please."
Peter|GM: Capan strolls out from the forest, spear in hand. He pokes one of the bodies with it.
Folis 's ears flit back against her head, but she remains there. "I know… if you want to hit me or something, that's fine…"
Peter|GM: "I'll lug them out to kobold territory. Let them get found there."
Le Masked Buccaneer: "If you think that's best."
Echo looks over the bodies first.
Le Masked Buccaneer: "Though I do have an alternate idea."
Alianor: "That would… take too much effort. But… it did help us."
Peter|GM: Capan smiles. "And what idea is that?"
Folis: "… I owe you, Ali. Just… you get to pick, so I don't do something stupid again."
Folis: "I'm so very sorry… I just thought…"
Le Masked Buccaneer: "Well, it would be a matter of little work to make it /very clear/ who did this deed."
Peter|GM: Echo: Pocket change comes up to 50G, if you're looting.
Echo is, yes.
Peter|GM: …Oh, and one of them was carrying orders.
Le Masked Buccaneer: "And, perhaps, give the Imperials someone else to chase, away from villages minding their ownbusiness."
Echo takes a careful look at the orders.
Alianor waves a hand half-heartedly. "Just… pay more attention… to what their stuff does… and how they react to it… okay?"
Folis: "Yeah… yeah…"
Alianor takes one last deep breath before asking Folis to help her to her feet, and then looks over the Imperial rifles, though she has doubts she'll be impressed by them.
Peter|GM: Ordinary arms. If anyone is down a rifle or a hammer, they could certainly loot one now.
Folis easily hauls Alianor up, lending her a shoulder of support with need be. Though, as the weapons are sorted through…
[OOC] Le Masked Buccaneer: Any chance of a pistol?
[OOC] Peter|GM: Nope! Imperials fight with long arms.
[OOC] Le Masked Buccaneer: Ah, well.
Echo: "Looks like they were to make an example of any House Seville loyalists or any other resistance forces. Also something about 'Orangefox', whatever that is…? Looking for information about that."
Le Masked Buccaneer: "Hmm. Knew about the first…the second sounds a mystery!"
Folis: "I was hopin' for a smaller maul, but… I'd still be a fool to pass up free weaponry."
Folis considers, picks up one of the hammers, tests its heft. Nearly overbalances when she realizes she's not quite used to the weight yet.
Folis: "… 'll take some getting used to but I think I'll try it. No point to me using rifles when I've got magic, but I think we should take some back anyhow.
Peter|GM: Capan paces about. "Might have trouble finding buyers. They're clearly Imperial weapons."
Folis: "Well, we got marooned here, I mean we could use the guns for hunting."
Peter|GM: He laughs. "But it's proper ironic if you turn them against the source - right, that too."
Folis takes a few more swings. "If I can learn to alternate spellwork with a whallop of this… I could probably extend how long I can keep fightin'."
Echo takes one of the imperial's rifles.
