    201 KB BARD QUEST 06/30/10(Wed)02:52 No.10837680  
    In a thread the other day, some folks expressed an interest in me picking up an old quest, so here I go.
    Just a heads up. The first half of the first two threads are full of trolls, so I'll do a quick recap so you don't have to wade through that crap.

    You are Janis Ivanova, a traveling bard. Your Fiddle, Elisabeth, was your only companion.
    About a week ago you stopped in a small town, after a few shows you picked up supplies and the shopkeeper's daughter asked if she could come with you. Her name is Tabitha, and shes about a head and a half taller then you and claims to be strong enough to lift a cow.
    Before leaving the little town that had no name, you were given a padded leather vest by Miranda, a Paladin of Pelor. You keep a knife in your boot and one at your hip. Tabby has light leather and a very large axe.
    On the way to a larger town, Colinswealth, you were attacked by Bandits. You fought them off, and turned 3 in for a bounty at Colinswealth.
    Your current supplies are as follows: A bedroll, flint and steel, two torches, ten days of trail rations (though they aren't very tasty) 50 feet of rope, an empty pouch,and a waterskin. Along with the pack to hold it all it. You have your Padded Vest, two knifes, and a silver ring given to you by the Blacksmith's apprentice. From the Bandits you took 3 daggers, a shortsword, and a bow. Also 25 arrows, all of normal quality. You have a total of 43 Silver and 5 copper.
    >> BARD QUEST 06/30/10(Wed)02:54 No.10837711
    Once you arrived in Colinswealth, you procured a room and the next day headed to the market to apply your trade. There you saw an Elf playing a harp at a fountain. You played a few songs with her, and are currently dividing the coins.
    "I am a bard, same as you. I travel and sing and find out what the world is up to. Have you not heard? The Elven King is planning on re-opening the ancient trade routs. That is important information, and I would expect all travelers to know it!"

    The Fiddle is your bread, and your voice is your butter. You tell stories and sing song, to entertain is your livelihood...

    Hey... I remember this quest!

    Weren't we making this bard into a lesbian? I remember her flirting with the blacksmith to lower a price, but I'm pretty sure we were making her a lesbo.

    Well that's wonderful, we may want to consider joining a caravan that will be traveling on the newly reopened trade routes. It'd be an interesting way to see the world and perhaps we could learn some Elvish songs on the way. Ask her if she'd like to join us.

    >> BARD QUEST 06/30/10(Wed)03:05 No.10837855
    You were planning on heading to the city of Vimestead, but your plans weren't set in stone. You're prepared to go to anywhere where your trade can get you coin. Maybe you can accompany this elf back to her homeland?
    The elf sighs and rolls her eyes. "The roads won't be opening for a few months yet. I'm traveling to gather news to share with my people once the roads are open." She shifts around slightly. "I normally wouldn't be traveling with humans but... I hear there are bandits on the roads nearby..."
    Come to think of it... you don't know her name yet.
    >> Anonymous 06/30/10(Wed)03:10 No.10837923
    Well then, let's ask her. Try to mention that we will be heading to a larger city in the time between now and when the roads reopen. She's welcome to come along with us and if she does we'll split the coin we earn preforming and with it could hire some guards.
    >> Anonymous 06/30/10(Wed)03:10 No.10837928
    Ask her name ans ask her if she wants to go to the city with us.
    If I remember right, Tabby wanted to do some strongwoman stuff as part of the show.
    This elf is a good singer, and the more the merrier, and safer, it is on the road. Also, ask her if she has any weapons training.
    >> Anonymous 06/30/10(Wed)03:11 No.10837943
    We don't need guards! The leader of the last bandits who fucked with us got a knife to the dick. And his uppity friend got something cut off. Armor maybe though.

    Wait now I remember, we were going to form some sort of traveling circus deal. Let's go look around at the other performers for more talent to join us.
    >> BARD QUEST 06/30/10(Wed)03:24 No.10838122
    You introduce yourself to the elf, and ask her if she wishes to accompany you to Vimestead, the largest city in the immediate area. You assure her that all coins will be split fairly, and that the last bandits who troubled you payed for your room at the Inn. Giving you a puzzled look, you explain tot he elf that you turned them in for a bounty.
    She contemplates this for a while, idly plucking the stings of her harp. "You may call me Faral... and I believe that I will walk with you on the roads. There are very few of my people out and about." Next you ask her about defending herself. "I an skilled with the bow, as are most of my kin, and I'm also able to use shortswords, though I have none with me. I know no magics, but my Elven ears and eyes are better then those of you humans. And I carry no armor. Where are you staying, if I may ask?"

    There are also two other talented performers in the market. A Juggler and joke teller, and a small boy with a preforming dog.

    Looking back on the threads it appears we were staying at Nobby's Knob. Assure her that it's a better place than it sounds. Try for the juggler/joke teller, he's got multiple talents and it seems like he'd probably be pretty handy with a blade with the high dexterity required in juggling.

    >> BARD QUEST 06/30/10(Wed)03:46 No.10838476
    You tell Faral how to get to Nobby's Knob, and quickly explain that it's actually a nice place. Though she still have a slight look of repulsion, she stands and takes her half of the coins. "I will meet you there this evening then."
    You made bank with that performance. 24 silver and 9 copper worth of coins are added to your coin pouch. You left 20 silver with Tabby, so you now have 48 silver and a few copper.
    You debate talking with the juggler. On one hand, you don;t have any jokers in your group, and he might be skilled in a fight, but on the other hand you generally prefer the company of women to men.
    Now what you could really use is a a dancer. Everyone loves dancers. Especially you. You toy with the silver ring on your finger. And decide to move on.
    As you pass, you take some interest in the boy and his dog. The dog balances on a ball, balances the ball on it, and other tricks of the like. The boy gives a command, and the dog obeys. After the performance you approach the boy. You ask how much he would be willing to sell the dog for. The boy looks up at you, shocked. "Sell Jim? Not likely miss! He's my best friend in the whole world and I'd starve without him! besides, he wouldn't listen to a word you said."

    Well of course we wouldn't be able to buy a boy's best friend off of him. Let's go try to find a cabaret or a theater to pick up a dancer, maybe hit the market on the way there. We could probably use another change of clothes and we could sell a couple of the bandit's weapons off too. Keep the shorts sword for the elf though, we can give it to her a present later.

    We could leave him some coins to get by until he finds something else. Now I'm wondering how he even got it in the first place. On second thought, nuts to that, I don't even want the dog anymore.

    We should keep all the weapons. A dagger for each of us, the bow and shortsword for the elf.

    >> BARD QUEST 06/30/10(Wed)04:06 No.10838757
    You briefly think about stealing the dog and leaving some money, but you quickly dismiss the thought. With your luck the dog is magic of something.
    You look at the equipment you got off the bandits. You set the bow and shortsword aside, along with one of the daggers for Tabby. The Elf gets a sword, and you already have two of your own, so you decide to sell two of them. Searching around the market for a bit you find a blacksmith who looks over the daggers carefully. "Not bad... I'll give you 20 silver for the two of them." In the little town you were able to get a high quality knife for 3 silver, marked down from 5. But everything here is more expensive.
    Do you take it or try to haggle?

    I'm pulling things our of both 3.5 and 4E. You know parlor tricks and are a pretty good Ventriloquist. (Prestidigitation and ghost sound)

    >> BARD QUEST 06/30/10(Wed)04:20 No.10838921
    You decide to haggle. You "absentmindedly" undo your padded vest and stretch, flaunting the good the gods saw fit to give you. While doing so, you weave a tale of bravery and cunning, and how you tricked a bandit king in order to get this mystic dagger.
    The blacksmith raises a brow and looks down at the dagger. "Little lady, I've been a blacksmith for, I'd say twice as long as you've been alive. I'm no dwarf, but I do know magic weapons. And I doubt my wive would be happy with you flaunting yourself before me. However, I thank you for the story and, and making me feel a little younger. I'll give you 25 silver for both of them, but I won't go one copper higher. I'll also give you a 10 percent discount on one item in the store."
    The blacksmith has some pretty standard wares. Nothing magical, but all kinds of armor and a decent assortment of weapons.
    >> Hammerknife !7ITukp3Pj2 06/30/10(Wed)04:22 No.10838955
    Say "It was worth a shot", close your vest, and look around for a pole weapon, a halberd of some sort.

    >> BARD QUEST 06/30/10(Wed)04:35 No.10839148
    Well at least you were able to get a better price. You tell him you're staying in the Knob and plan on preforming later tonight, and he should bring the missus. "Well... I grab a drink there every so often. Maybe I'll stop by."
    Looking through the shop, you pick out a rapier for yourself, and two chain vests. The vests are 40 silver a piece, and the rapier is another 25. You can get 10% off one item, but you only have 73 silver and a few copper.
    >> Abaddon 06/30/10(Wed)04:37 No.10839176

    I still say we should have picked up a halberd. Bards with rapiers are just overdone.

    Also, how much would it cost to have these chainmail vests fitted?
    >> BARD QUEST 06/30/10(Wed)04:49 No.10839296
    Damn! 28 silver short! If you had the money you gave Tabby then maybe... oh well. You choose to take the discount on the vest and you buy the rapier as well. You'll continue to use the padded vest. It's a little warm, but better then nothing, like Miranda said... You briefly wonder what Miranda is going now, but quickly push the though to the side.
    You have 12 silver left, and the room has already been paid for for the day. The market isn't the largest you've been to, but there is plenty to see and do. You notice that the Juggler and the small boy have both left the market, and all the other performers don't seem to be as good as you or them. You still have most of the day to kill.

    ... we're using D&D rules for that. It just works.

    Assuming quest is still on, I'm a fan of saving some of our cash and just buying the Chain shirt for Tabby. We don't know how much longer we'll be in town, and the blacksmith probably doesn't have many people coming in to buy a rapier. We'll need to look into getting some armor for Faral as well; probably something similar to what we have at the moment (Padded Leather Armor isn't that bad for a ~Level 1 Bard to have on them at this point in time.)

    After that, we should explore around town some more and try to hear about any more news events or other interesting little stories, maybe an hour or so doing this before returning to the Knob and talking with Tabby and Faral about our future plans, as well as seeing if we wish to turn this little group into a sort of traveling circus/caravan group. I like the idea of getting a dancer and we'd probably need someone who can give out fortunes.

    Not entirely sure about making this an all-female gig, then again I wasn't a fan of the whole lesbo angle we pulled back in January.

    You wonder around the market for a while, keeping an ear out for anything interesting. You play a few songs here and there and manage to get 8 silver.
    You pass stalls of all kinds. Eventually you come across one that is both more colorful and a little more permanent then the rest. Stepping inside, you find it's a clothes shop. bright clothes and scarves hang on racks. A little old woman sits behind a counter and winks at you. "Hello deary. Judging by that fiddle, you're a musician, aren't you?" Pulling out a measuring tape, she starts sizing you up. Half an hour later, she has you fitted for a corset and a soft cotton skirt. She tried to sell you silk, but you told her you're working on a 20 silver budget. Stepping back, she smiles. "You look a treat, you do. You're so pretty I'll sell it all to you for 6 silver."

    You poke and prod the deal for some kind of catch, but can't find one. So you ask about some fancier clothes. "Well the jacket won;t be much, for a goo done I'll take 3 more silver, and the Top Hat... well now those are a bit pricier. 5 coins for that." Which is still only 14 silver. That leaves you with 6. You pay for your clothes and leave the shop. You keep your traveling hat on and the top hat in the box for now. You'll save them for performances.
    Eventually you pass by a large tent with a very animal smell about it. Across the lane there is a corral with horses. As you get closer you notice two men arguing in the street, one is slightly dirty and smells like the tent, while the other is in a suit. They seem to be arguing over what is better, camels or horses.

    You stop to listen for a moment, as the argument escalates. "People do not need horse! They need camel! Camel better then horse, less water, twice the work! People need better then new slightly used camels!" The turbaned head of the camel salesmen turns slowly to you.
    Something tells you to flee, to run fast and hard. You have no idea what it is, but you bolt. As you turn a corner you hear a the man's voice. "See you soon!"
    After running flat out for a few minutes you need to stop to get your breath back. You sit down on a barrel next to a bright yellow and red tent with blue streamers. A small hand painted sign sits out front. Polm reedings, 2Silver.
    Nice and acurate profesees

    Great, we could always use phony fortune reader in the circus. Go inside, but don't spend much money. Ask for your fortune and other things.

    You step into the tent and see an old woman hunching over a glass orb. "Hello young one. I knew you were coming. I saw your lovely hair in my crystal ball this morning." She motions you to sit down. "Palm readings are my specialty. Lets see here... You are a musician, and a good one at that. Oh my. You have a long and profitable life ahead of you. Your lifeline, that's this one right there, is nice and long. You will have... 3 children with a handsome fire headed man, with the strength of ten men."
    She holds out her hand and smiles a toothless smile. "2 silver my dear."
    A goat walks into the tent, idly chewing on some paper. A young woman follows it. She is a beautiful woman, with dark skin and eyes, and hair the color of a raven's wing. She has on a loose purple skirt and a loose white blouse. "Grandmother! Gregor got loose again and, OH! I'm sorry, I didn't know you were with a guest." She bows low and backs out of the tent. The old woman coughs and holds out a hand.

    You drop two coins into the woman's hand. "Ah-ha. I can do tarot cards next for another three you know. Tell you all kinds of things!" You stand and decline, and quickly leave the tent. You have an idea brewing, and you slip to the side.
    Peering around the tent, you see the woman sitting on the ground petting the goat. "Now Gregor, what have I told you about wondering off? I saw that butcher look at you, you could have ended up a kabob!" She occasionally hands it a piece of hay or whatever else is near at hand. You notice bells on one of her wrists and, as she stretches out a well muscles and toned leg, one of her ankles. They make a soft jingle as she stirs. She looks up with a start. "OH! I did not see you there! Please do not give me such a fright!" She has the accent of someone from the south lands.

    Put on your bard charm and pop on the top hat. Tell her about our wonderful up and coming circus and how a beautiful woman like herself could earn a lot of money and see the world with your band. In general sell the circus life to her as best you can.

    In one swift motion you take off your traveling hat and pop the top hat out of its case and onto your head. The woman is surprised and smiles. "Nice trick." You bow low with a flourish and sit on a nearby crate. You compliment her on her fine animal, the goat looks at you like it wonders what your clothes taste like, and compliment her on her beauty. She blushes faintly. "Oh no, I am nothing compared to how Grandmother was when she was young." You ask her if she can dance. She nods energetically. "Oh yes!" She beams proudly. "I am the second best dancer in the clan! I can also tell fortunes, although I am not really as good as Grandmother."
    You get to the point. You tell her of all the wonderful opportunities for life on the road , and how a good looking woman such as her self would rake int he coin. She looks at you puzzled, "But... I already to that now? And if I left Grandmother, who would help her with the caravan... I mean other then the rest of the clan." She scratches Gregor behind the ear. "And I could never leave Gregor."

    This keeps getting better and better. She will make an excellent addition to the crew. First things first though, you ask her for her name. "I am called Zanne. It is a pleasure to meet you." She bobs her head in a bow. You ask her how she would like to come with you. you use every card in your bardic deck, so to speak. "I... I am not sure. I love my Grandmother very much. I learn many things from her and the others. Although I wish they would boss me around less... that would indeed be nice. I would not want to leave my family forever." She adds the last part hastily.

    Pick at that. The freedom of the open road, away from the family.
    Besides, she knows all the campsites I'll bet, she can go back any time she wants.

    Well, if she joins now while the troupe is small she can wind up high on in the pecking order. And she could come as a temporary addition to see how it works out for a few months? Also, asking Granny? I get the feeling gypsies are distrustful of poachers of their kids.
    >> BARD QUEST 06/30/10(Wed)06:58 No.10840749
    You tempt her with thoughts of freedom. You turn the charm up to eleven and really butter her up. It's unfair how such a beautiful young woman such as herself is treated like a child. She should be out and about, making her own money and spending it on things she wanted. Zanne's eyes mist over for a moment as she thinks about all the possibilities, but she quickly snaps back to the present at the sound of the old woman from inside the tent. "Zanne? Where are you girl? You get in here right now!"
    Zanne looks quickly down to your violin case. "I would very much like to hear you play. Where are you staying?" You tell her you might be playing tonight at Nobby's Knob. "I know the place. Please go, if you stay too long Grandmother will get upset." She gently, but firmly pushes you back out into the street. "I will listen to you tonight." She quickly disappears back into the tent.
    You decide now is as good of time as any for meeting back up with Tabby and Faral.

    Well it's time for me to sleep now. I don't think I'll be doing a thread tomorrow, but probably the next day.
