Finally after two years in the service of the Dark Queen Quintis you have finally been promoted, no more marching through filthy peasant villages administering the Queen's justice, this is your chance to rise through the ranks of her Majesty's armies and become one of her generals, or so you thought.We left off with Baldr getting some well needed rest to prepare for the coming reinforcements.You continue your reading of the herbalist’s book for a while longer, looking through the plants section looking for other noteworthy plants, of which you find none but you do learn a little about some local plants as well as general knowledge of the anatomy of plants. You get about halfway through the plants section before your eyes grow too heavy to continue and you head off to bed, wanting to get a full night’s sleep for the big day tomorrow.Hours after you fall asleep, a dark stealthy shape steals towards the entrance to the base.Dungeon Stats:>Garrison: 5 goblins + 3 goblin wolves.>Maze + Traps: level 1 (6 traps in maze, max kill capacity per trap 3, traps have to be manually reset; Maze takes 2 min to navigate if correct path chosen)>Secret Tunnels: level 1 (simple button press open, camouflaged into dungeon walls)Baldr Blooddragon:Equipment:>Full Plate Armor>Halberd>Short sword>Holy Blade[Dormant]>Coin of Fate>1 energy potionTool Kits:>blacksmith mundane tool kit >carpenter mundane tool kit >Stone carver mundane tool kit >alchemists kit>337 Gold [97 in coin]Books:>Herbalism PrimerPerks:>Bush Wacker: Easier to spot and set ambushes>Elf War Veteran: +2 to your defense against non-magical ranged attacks and +2 to both your attack and defense.>Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?searchall=Mid+Boss+Quest

Rolled 16, 1, 18 + 1 = 36 (3d20 + 1)>>2621399A low growl emits from the wolf at the goblins side by the entrance. "What is it mutt," mutters the goblin as he peers out into the darkness.Cursing under its breath the figure hurriedly raises its crossbow and takes aim.
Rolled 8, 4, 17 + 1 = 30 (3d20 + 1)>>2621420The crossbow thwacks and the bolt flys toward the goblin. The moment before impact however the wolf leaps up and the bolt sinks into the wolf's flesh, it tumbles and rolls across the ground then goes still.The Goblin lets out a shriek and flees into the maze.Swearing even louder the figure rises to its feet and sprints after the goblin.
>>2621436get fucked. I hope you step on a trap.
>>2621439squish squish>>2621436god damn probably another hero or some tard thinking they can save m'lady
>>2621454How many "heroes" do we have to put in timeout?
>>2621456I think Selenas named off like four heroes two threads back, if it is one of them this really puts a dent in our little experiment with her since she's really bent out of shape because noone came to her rescue like she's a princess or something.
>>2621464she will never know if he is deadthis is probably that would be assassin hero
>>2621471yeah that's what I was thinking. Here's those heroes from thread 2Walden Casenheim, holy lancer and generalValenca Saren, assassinCaulder Ironheart, Falenta's protector and shieldFalenta, head honcho herself
Rolled 2, 9, 3 + 2 = 16 (3d20 + 2)>>2621436The goblin runs fast but the intruder is faster, coming up quickly from behind the goblin, the intruder stabs a knife into the goblins back. The goblin trips falls and lands on a trap blades spring from the wall and the intruder tries to doge them, succeeding by only in avoiding death as one of the blades slashes the intruders side.Letting out a small grunt the intruder checks the wound and decides to continue on, dripping blood.
>>2621484For fuck sakes
>>2621464What if he came here to silence her?
Rolled 2 (1d3)>>2621484Stumbling through the maze the intruder walks the hallways lost. Time slips by as the intruder stumbles around trying to find their way through, when another trap triggers. With the roof sliding down the intruder dives out of the way barely making it. As the ceiling crunches down on the intruders crossbow. Letting loose another curse the intruder rises back to their feet and continues on.Many minutes later the intruder stumbles out of maze starring at the main hallway with 3 doors to choose from.1 Raid Room2 Barracks3 Your Room
Rolled 7, 6, 6 + 2 = 21 (3d20 + 2)>>2621523Creeping stealthily the intruder approaches the barracks.
>>2621536This guy sucks at his job, and i doubt its the assassin hero.
>>2621541he's just bad luck, he has a +2, something we never had, not even selenas I thinkbased on the rolls our goblins heard the traps and are waiting
>>2621541yeah thinking about it, Selenas doesn't seem to be an important piece in their master plan. Seems doubtful they would send an important figure like the assassin hero to rescue a literal no one. Maybe to retrieve the glowy sword but Selenas doesn't strike me as important enough to send a big mover like Valenca Saren to save her.
>>2621536Swinging the barracks door open the intruder steps inside. Unfortunately for the intruder the swinging door collides with a weapons rack and the weapons clatter on to the floor. The two goblins sleeping inside bolt awake and one of them lets out a shout "INTRUDER."Inside your room, you hear a loud clatter and then a shout of "INTRUDER" Causing you to bolt upright.>Rush to it no time for armor just grab your weapon.>You need to be cautious put on your armor, then give chase.>[Write In]

>>2621596RUSH, save our troopswe don't have many to spare
>>2621616>>2621650Guys, the intruder lost their crossbow and if this is an assassin they will most definitely have poisonous daggers. We should get our armor on before rushing to fight an unknown enemy who decided to kick our door in. The goblins can hold their own for a hot second while we get our armor on. Besides, we get reinforcements today
>>2621658Putting on armor takes a while. Killing goblins does not
>>2621658it's not a second man, its a plate armor if I'm not mistaken.and we don't know any of that, we just know that there's an intruder in our barracks and he already passed the traps, fuck he can be on us while we are fumbling to put that thing on.let's rush!
>>2621666alright satan, if we get poisoned I'm going to blame you
>>2621596Rush B!The assassin chick specializes in being sneaky. She doesn't have that anymore.

>>2621776I know right? We're in the boonies. Unless they're uprising also begins the boonies.
>>2621776>>2621793Idk but hopefully she doesn't mind dying before Selenas notices who it is. Unless the assassin is a cutie we should kill her. IF she is a cutie we should ask her what the fuck she thinks she's doing
>>2621803nah, cutie or no she goes under to father Satan
>>2621793also, they must think we are some kind of uber knight in service of the king, two heroes in two that came here will be dead or missing and this shithole of a garrison still stands

>>2621803Maybe it would be a good idea for Selena to know she's here? I want to put the equivalent of an ankle monitor on the assassin. It would be cool if we can turn all there heroes against their leader.>>2621814Maybe. I hope our goblin ok. He didn't deserve to be shot.
>>2621833FuckLooks like the traps don't kill her
>>2621828We've already got one.

If we bring her living proof of a rescue attempt then it would revert all the progress we've made with her thus far. >>2621776Honestly I'm really damn surprised insurrectionist leaders are already starting to show up. Maybe it's because we are really close to the already captured cities, the map doesn't really clear up how much the rebellion captured already. It might just be a lesser boss in one of the lower rings. Maybe a goon of the assassin or an assassin to be and it was their test to prove to the heroes that they can do assassin tasks. Which I'm pretty sure is what Selenas was to do, prove her worth to the heroes by capturing a small bumpkin town of McNobody. So maybe after not hearing anything they send out another to test them against the same thing. >>2621855Never too many waifus. We are a dungeon master and if we don't have a harem then we're not really that great at dungeon mastering. >>2621854rollan

Depending on who she is, should kill her unceremoniously or in the upcoming talk with the village as a public execution. Show how their false heroes are weak.

Going to repost what I had said at the end of the last thread. >>2620343Plan for the day: >Talk with Selenas in the morning, inquire about her some more. Get to know her and "Sympathize" with her. >Link up with reinforcements and talk with the town's Mayor/Eldar and address the town as a whole afterwards (release the prisoners at this point)>Make preparations for training a local militia and patrol routes for the garrison. Get more local labor to work on the dungeon. I'm thinking the next build project should be a prison. We need to, however, organize with the locals to work on food stores and see what we can do to keep our guys fed.
>>2622862Bear traps and reviewing the methods the villagers employ to grow their crops and care for their cattle? If I remember the background choice the majority chose farmer. Maybe we could provide some farming tips and advice?Hey maybe our background could make us more relatable with the village folk.
>>2622536>Wait for your goblins and organize a search party, with her wounds she couldn't have gone far.do goblins have night vision?
>>2622536>Wait for your goblins and organize a search party, with her wounds she couldn't have gone far.leave goblin or two behind, dogs with us.
>>2622935We should have 5 goblins in total. 1 is probably injured. Two goblins would need to stay to watch out for anymore attackers and to check on the wounded. The other two would come with us and the dogs. Or I guess we should leave the goblins behind and only take the Wolves?
I'd say take only 2 wolves and our resident warg rider.
>>2623384Hopefully he wasn't the one who got shanked. Other than that it's a good idea.
>>2622930Yes goblins can see better in the dark than most creatures.
>>2622536>>2622640>>2622830>>2622930>>2622935You stop at the entrance to your base and catch your breath, for now she could run but with those wounds she couldn’t travel for long and with your wolves you could easily track her.While you wait for your goblins to catch up you hear soft whimpering noises and see one of your wolves lying out in front of the base’s entrance. You approach the beast lying on its belly looking up at you with a pained expression. Examining the beast you see a crossbow bolt jutting out of the beast’s chest. The bolt had missed the wolf’s lungs but it had struck deep and judging by the blood leaking out from around the shaft, it had hit something important.Coming up behind you, the two goblins you had sent to chase the intruder come up and panting heavily give you a report “We lost… the intruder,” one breathes.“Man down… in the corridor… Niddle… poisoned,” wheezed the other.“Go get Grintol and tell him to bring both of his wolves to the entrance we’re going to get the bitch that did this.” You say and the two exhausted goblins turn back to the maze.Damn this wasn’t good, you could try to save the wolf and the goblin, but that would mean you couldn’t pursue the intruder, and your goblins might need your help.>The intruder must pay for her crimes, get your armor on it was time for a hunt.>If you can save the wolf and Niddle then you have to try, let your goblins give chase.>[Write In]
>>2623928Let the goblins give chase while we help heal.Make sure to tell the goblins to take no chances she is out if ranged weapins but she is still very dangerous. Just harras and chase her untill she drops from blood loss or exhaustion.

It would be preferable if they bring her back alive, but if it's too dangerous then they should kill her. Take what they think they will need on their hunt.
>>2623936>Just harass and chase her until she drops from blood loss or exhaustion.You're right. She will eventually bleed to death from her wounds. Unless she has a healing potion on her!- no wait that can't be it. if she had one then she would have used it by now.

>>2623928>>2623936>>2623945>>2624054You reach down and gingerly pick up the wolf. Heavy as it is you bear its weight as you walk back into the maze. On the way back you have the two goblins pick up Niddle and lay him down in your room as you lay the wolf down on one of your sturdy tables.You turn back to the two goblins who brought Niddle in and give them additional orders. "Grintol is to lead the search party for the intruder, she should be bleeding heavily and will be weaker. Do not under estimate her though, wear her down and wait for her to drop if you can, bringing her in alive is preferred but don't kill yourselves for it, Understand."The two goblins give you a nod and leave your room as you set about dealing with the wounded.A quick examination of the goblin showed a knife wound in his back, around the wound the flesh had grayed and smelled of rot. Niddle's breathing was labored and he coughed with every exhalation.>Who do you treat first [Niddle or the Wolf]?
>>2624113>>2624123>>2624153>>2624176>>2624177Niddle needs your immediate help, so you set to work with what you remember from your days as a solider, you fill two pots with water, one you keep cool the other you boil. You place the cool rag on Niddle's head to help with his burgeoning fever, while using the boiling water you clean his oozing wound. This poison was nasty and you weren't sure you could do much else for the poor man when you remember the detox shot from the herbalists book.All you needed was some Bitter Root, Pigs Tail Flower, and Tromple Wart.The Tromple Wart grew in abundance on the manure piles in the kennels and the Bitter Root was an easily find able plant, but the Pigs Tail Flower was another matter entirely it was rare, even in your area where they were the most common.>Go outside and try to find the Pigs Tail Flower.>Look in the book for a substitute or something that works the same.>[Write In]

The Snag Weed a common enough plant with sticky fibrous growths that tangle up and trip unwary travelers.With the ingredients for the detox shot arranged, you take a look at the wolf, after you take the arrow out you will have to close its wound and for that two options were available. You could either sear the wound shut which was easier but the wound would take more time to heal, or make a poultice for it which would be more difficult but heal the wound better.>Sear shut the wound.>Make a poultice for it.>[Write In]

You sneer back at it and say "Stop whining it doesn't hurt that bad."You take the now red hot knife and press it into the wound. The sound of searing flesh, mixed with the snarl of the wolf as it swings its head down and digs its teeth into your arm you hold the knife in the wound waiting for about three more seconds and then you drop the knife and use your fingers to pry the wolf from your bare arm. Blood welled from the bite mark on your arm and you curse wrapping it in clean cloth.

>>2624527>>2624531>>2624534>>2624537You rush out of the base, torch in hand and search the surrounding terrain for the plants you need. Stumbling through the near dark you find a lot of the plants you need, so much you could make several of the detox shots. When you approach the top of the hill looking for even more plants, you trip over a gnarled looking root, when you pick yourself up you find yourself in a whole patch of Pigs Tail Flowers, now you should easily be able to make detox shots anytime you need to. Collecting a few you then return to your room and toss the ingredients into the boiling pot of water and wait for the ingredients to brew. While you wait you rewet the cloth on the goblins head and adjust him into a sitting position for the tea.The pungent scent form the pot meant that the brew was ready. Taking a ladle full of the tea you press it to the goblins lips and have him drink the concoction. He drinks it down easy enough and you then sit back and wait.After about ten minutes the detox shot takes effect. Vomit spews from the goblins mouth, and you quickly give him a bucket to puke into, it is then that you notice that he is sweating profusely and has also in fact pissed himself. You gather more buckets and bedpans as the goblin starts shitting himself as well.Half an hour later, having emptied himself completely. Niddle collapses to the floor passed out from exhaustion. You check the goblin, his breathing had stabilized and he was beginning to cool and come down from his fever, you had saved his life. Now though he owed you, owed you for having to clean up every nasty expulsion from his body, oh he would pay just as dearly as the intruder would when your goblins caught up with her.>This will be all for tonight, tomorrow the hunt for the intruder will play out.
>>2624561>all for tonight

>>2624561Just gonna get on your hands and knees and try not to think too hard on it. We'll cash this favor in in due time.Note to self: Make sure Niddle (was there one or two poisoned goblins?) has some water when he wakes up. He's going to be dehydrated.Another note: if we or anyone has to drink this crap make sure they had a bed pan and bucket at the ready.
Rolled 14, 17, 12 = 43 (3d20)>>2624561>Meanwhile in the tall grasses and fields near your base.The illusion had worked like a charm, confounding that damned relentless, halberd wielding, maniac in his bed clothes, allowing the intruder to escape. The intruder crashed through weeds, wheat, and grass on her desperate escape path stopping only when her lungs and bleeding wounds demanded a stop. Falling onto her hands and knees, the intruder caught her breath and checked her wounds. All that damned running and fighting had widened the slash in her side and blood still ran from it although more slowly than when it had first been opened, While the large gash in her shoulder from the halberd still burbled blood in dark hues. The intruder attempted to move her arm with the cut up shoulder “Damnit,” she cursed getting only a weak response from the limb. Removing her face cloth and hood the intruder attempts to bind up her wounds.
Rolled 20, 1, 8 = 29 (3d20)>>2626080Slicing the clothes into strips the intruder wraps the pieces around her midsection and pulls it taut, then she quickly binds her wounded arm into a sling before packing the wound with cloth.

>>2626172Interesting set of rolls
>>2626172The intruder tears off through the night heading for the planned escape route. Moving at surprising speed the intruder makes early head way distancing herself from the hunting goblins and wolves. but as she moves she encounters a patch of nasty brambles that trip her step and tear away the arm sling as she finally breaks through the patch having lost a lot of her lead.Finally the intruder bursts from the grasses and down onto a muddy creek bank. "The creek, I made it," the intruder breathes as she leaps into the water and swims down stream.Only minutes later your goblins burst on to the bank wolves sniffing the mud."She must of jumped into the river," said Grintol atop his wolf "She was injured which means she'll probably be traveling down stream." Grintol turns his wolf that direction and bounds off in search of her the other goblins and wolf following.>Give me some d20s+1

Cursing Grintol turns the party around, the boss wasn't going to be happy about this.Sitting in your room tending to wounded you hear the returning search party. You hurry out of your room to see how they fared, only to be met with a party of exhausted and defeated looking goblins. Your anger builds but then subsides, the hero had escaped true, but the damage she had done had been reversed so all in all you had broken even.>What will you do now?

Actually might need to buy a smelter for that.
>>2626306Plus the "hero" didn't even see anything other than walking into a bunch of sleeping goblins. The only thing they saw of actual note was our face which means she knows us but we don't know them so going about anywhere incognito will be problematic. All of our guys seem fine enough, set them to their usual patrol and then go talk to Selenas. Maybe we can glean off a few details about herself and possibly about people she knows in the rebellion or sympathize with her. Sticking to my plan >>2622862>>2626322downstream is opposite of the village IIRC
>>2626335We don't have the old boss's armor and we don't know where it is. We would have to talk to the village leader for the whereabouts, which is already a part of the plan. As for traps, we can have our goblins set about to reset and clean them. No need to waste our time on it when we have minions
>>2626336I hope the messenger comes back soon with a letter from the mages guild for the runes.
>>2626346Don't the traps reset themselves now?>>2626306is there a way to improve the traps without spending gold? can we make them respond faster?

>>2626351I kind of want to give the sword back to Selena to see what would happen. Maybe the sword was specifically tailored to her.Does this mean we will go into town with our armor in the morning?
>>2626350>reset themselves>>2621393> traps have to be manually reset no>>2626353>give the sword backYeah sure, when she is loyal to us she gets her fancy sword.>our armor in the morningAfter our reinforcements arrive we will meet with the village leader in full armor, yeahRight now I don't think there is any more insurrectionists to bother us as is. The assassin is most likely either a scout or just someone to get in and retrieve something. But as is they gained very little information on anything, with them stumbling in and out of the dungeon I doubt she knows the maze very well either. Doubtless to have another assassin attempt to properly scout the base or they will come in force at a much later date. Regardless it's not an entirely immediate threat. Plus they don't know of our reinforcements so if and when they return they will have sorely underestimated our forces.
Another thing on the bucket list we might have to deal with is the rust in the kennels. It would be awful of anymore prisoners or the dogs get rashes in the future.
>>2626306After all the commotion you can no longer sleep so with a sigh you quickly tell the goblins to reset the traps and to resume their patrols. You return to your room and don your armor.

You are going to tell me where you hid the injured girl who came in here or I am going to flay you alive,” behind the herbalist, the wolf enters the hut “And then I am going to feed you to my wolf piece by blood soaked piece until you answer my questions.” The herbalist face was starting to turn purple in your hands, so you through him to the floor directly in front of the wolf which was emitting a low, menacing growl. “I would start speaking now old man before my wolf runs out of patience and I don’t even have time to cut you up before he devours you.” Your wolf stands over the herbalists face and licks its lips before baring its teeth and drawing closer, ever closer to the herbalist.“Ok, Ok, I’ll tell you just get this beast away from me,” The herbalist screams as tears start to stream down his fear frozen face.You give a short whistle and the wolf backs away from the herbalist, “Now where is she.”“In a barn south of town, she is with my apprentice who is looking after her, please don’t hurt him. He is just a boy doing what he was told, he doesn’t know anything.

His punishment should be House Arrest or something like that. Need to address the people about this once our reinforcements get here.
>>2630003>What if he didn't know she was a hero?Oh that crinkly fuck knew. He wanted to join up with Selenas when she came through. But he is waaay too valuable of a person to just outright murder, plus he is a well-known figure in the community and would definitely spark outrage.

>>2630241There are quite a few places we could take her. In a hall in the trap maze. In the barracks. The raid room.
>>2630241In the damn courtyard or anywhere not in Selenas view
>>2630245She has been described as a young girl. Hanging a young girl night send the wrong picture, even if she is a hero.Then again maybe her being a young woman won't matter.
>>2630258>>2630259Are you guys reading my comments at all? >>2630225> in our room. Best not let Selenas see the mysterious intruder.
Fuck using our room for this just use a damn hallway or right above the pit trap. This is why we need a jail.
>>2630272>HallwayShe can probably hear the intruder from there. Behind thick closed doors, probably not.
>>2630259>In the damn courtyardWhere's that?
>>2630198>>2630205>>2630230et alYou quickly strip the unconscious hero of her weapons and do a full body check to make sure you didn't miss anything. You find a vial of poison hidden in her tied back hair, and on a bandage wrapped around her thigh under her clothes a brace of daggers. After your full search you sling the conscious, and now that you can smell her breath drugged hero over your shoulder, and head back to town.You grab Grintol and the herbalist, before you begin the trip home.>This ends today's session, tomorrow you will get to meet your reinforcements.
>>2630294>full body checkl-lewd
>>2630265we can't be weak here, remeber the elves, looks can be decieving, she hangs
>>2630633or we could interrogate her and then we hang her.
>>2630633>>2630728First we interrogate her then we'll make a decision what to do with her.Obviously we can't let her see Selenas but she's in kennels, as long as we don't bring her near it's fine.
>>2630761but I don't want to bring her there because selenas may hear her screams during the interrogation/torture. I doubt we will roll another nat 20 like we did to selenas that enabled us to skip the torture
>>2630761>>2630878Why can't we just interrogate her on the outside of the Dungeon and away from the entrance? That way we can still interrogate and Selenas won't have much of a chance to properly overhear what is being done.
>>2630886We could bring her down by the river and baptize her. Hold her under the water a little bit longer, multiple times
>>2630886I'm ok with this>>2630955"ACCEPT THE QUEEN AS YOUR LORD ANS SAVIOUR!" ups....held her down there for too long
>>2630955Ohhh so we're gonna do waterboarding this one's a classic.we could try brainwashing her and making her train us and our goblins.
>>2631228>We could try brainwashing her and making her train us and our goblins.She is too dangerous to be left alive. Especially since she's an actual assassin and not some chucklefuck with a sword.
>>2631235>actual assassinWell, we don't --really-- know that for sure though. As far as what we really know is that she's a wayward soul trapped by the musings of false heroes and idols who call for worship. We should totally kill her, waifu aside, she probably needs to die Probably
>>2631235Hmm before we do the hanging can we try and find out who her identity is?Can we cut off her limbs and use her as bait for whoever sent her or perhaps giving her to the queen might earn us some favor.Oooh I got a hood one! Instead of say hanging her why don't we feed her to the wolves!That way we won't have to worry about or wolves going hungry!Of course we might need to cripple her first just to be safe.
>>2631247>Well, we don't --really-- know that for sure though.The pat down literally exposed her as an assassin, I don't know about you but I legitimately can't think of any other class that hides vials of poison in their hair besides an assassin. Not only that, she was able to avoid a search party despite being wounded. Was able to sneak into the heart of our operations and was only found out because of a fuck up on her end, otherwise we'd end up with several very dead goblins and at best a struggle for our lives as she's trying to shank us like a turkey at thanksgiving.This should not even be a debate in the first place.
>>2631272No, I'm saying she might not be *the* assassin. >Valenca SarenShe's definitely *an* assassin. No doubt. But she seems entirely too incompetent to be the main big bad assassin. Probably a fledgling of the heroes. Kind of like Selenas is for the big lady, but instead for Saren.>>2631271Think everyone wants to know who this bitch is desu. I kinda don't want to feed her to the wolves, a bit dramatic and not really needed. Also I'm having flashbacks of a certain greentext when you talk about crippling her
>>2631296Hanging is boring!If we execute her we'll do it with style!
>>2631296Alright so I'm talking about assassins in general and you're talking about the Assassin Hero. Ok so, even if she is a newbie, there's always the fact that Saren possibly trained her to be more highly resistant to torture techniques and being able to fake being turned to our side. Much like how Selenas could have been trained to rally crowds and be a leader since she was able to turn the town on our old boss with little to no problems.>>2631272>>2631315That's a waste of a decent execution on an assassin. Just kill them, burn the bodies and be done with it
You know....if we let Selenas know that the assassin came, we can turn it to our advantage.Tell her the assassin was coming not to kill us, but to silence her. Make sure she could not divulge any information. That Selenas was now viewed as a loose end that needed to be dealt with.
>>2631503It's a nice plan, that can be extremely risky. Since it will depend on how we word it to her and our dice rolls.
>>2631503Damn nice idea, might backfire if we aren't careful about this tho.
>>2631503This sounds like a great choice.>>2631528But by the same token, the dice gods seem to reward devious, cold, or view changing actions.
>>2631582>>2631534>>2631528We should try and get the assasin to say it near her but also make it look like we are trying to hide this information from her. Double bluff. Also makes her guaranteed to belive it.
>>2631615Way too complicated with not even taking into account that prisoners can speak. Leading back to the original problem at the beginning.
>>2631615Sorry, but I have to ahree with >>2631637It makes it waaaaaay too complicated. A plan is only solid the less there is to cock up.
>>2631637this, let's just interrogate her, maybe hamstring her to make sure she isn't running and them execute. not risk and we get what we need, the goblins would like it too, since it's revenge for needle
>>2631955I kind of wanted to use her as a hostage or bargain chip but now when I think about it, it's really risky considering her abilities.
>>2631986Lets just chain her to the wall. Cant do much like that.
>>2632000>>2632005And what wall were you thinking of specifically that would be a good place for her because I don't believe we have a proper place for that in the damned dungeon and again, which leads back to the fact that sound bloody travels, especially when the torturing begins.
>>2632005This works, we could break her arms and legs too.But as >>2632021 said, we need someplace where nobody'll see or hear her especially Selenas.
>>2632021The vault. Move Selenas to the vault and then sneaky bitch to the kennels. (there's nothing really in the vault and is pretty thick ass door between her and freedom, also it isolates her.) Or the other way around. doesn't matterThen again... We run into the problem of just not killing her off. We can't just keep collecting all the pretty faced cuties that happen on our doorstep. Then again, I'm not adverse to that either.. but I don't think the other anons would really want to be keeping around a small group of semi "Elite" terrorists. But seriously I'm pretty adverse to breaking anything like legs or arms or doing anything previously horrendous. We're not stupid evil, we're Lawful Evil if anything. Her binds and other wounds seem to have kept Selenas from escaping, and this lady doesn't even seem competent enough to get out of a serious bind.
>>2632063man, just kill her, too much trouble and we get rep with the gobs. she is just a time bomb, sever her leg tendons, interrogate then execution, simple and clean
>>2632114yeah I agree with you, just kill her off and be done with it. Get some information out of her.What do you guys think?>Down by the river>In the forests>In the Fort (Specify)>Right outside the Fort, in the entrance?Personally I'm partial to going out and taking a nice cool dip and drowning a sneaky bitch for the information. First we would have to strip her and then toss her in the water. (After interrogating her)For those who want to keep her alive, what do you plan on doing to keep her around?>Keep her in the vault, strip her, isolate her, and hide her away.>Put her in the kennels. Gag her and strip her of anything note(her clothes) Maybe put a hood over her face. >Keep her in your room. Wouldn't mind the company plus.. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer...>Straight up mutilate her, break her bones and her spirit at the same time. She won't escape but she'll be a cripple for the rest of her life and virtually useless in everything other than whimpering. >Chill out with the wheelchair and just keep her tied up in the middle of the war room. Gag her and hood her. Most of what the binds I'd think of is kind of a hog tie or something like that. I like the idea of juts tossing her into the vault. Isolates her, puts her in total darkness, and keeps her from talking too much. We can probably gag her in all of these options, hood her too. The kennels isn't a super bad option but is a bit of nuisance if she does something to get out of the hood or gag. The vault, we are the only ones with the key so we would be feeding her and taking care of her. We would be her only contact. And for the interrogation itself.>Heat up a piece of nice red hot metal and stick her till she screams out all the juicy details.>Good cop bad cop, Just the basic go to interrogation. Use methods on trying to get information through sly conversation and intrigue. >FUCKING BREAK HER BONES>R-rape?>A mix of hurting her physically and trying to glean off as much information out of her. Cutting off a finger, breaking a hand, cutting her skin, other methods that doesn't make her useless outside of whining and whimpering like a blob of broken flesh.You probably guessed my answer. There isn't much reason to break her if we are going to keep her alive. But I think we should put her down by the river, interrogate her via waterboarding, cutting on her, and taking a few fingers all the while breaking her spirit. Same goes for if we kill her off outright. Though keeping her alive has a few benefits. That is she can be a bargaining chip. We can talk it through with the useless heroes. She can also become corrupted, like Selenas we turn her into another servant of the queen by breaking her spirit and then building her back up in a vision the queen would be happy to see. Keeping her alive definitely has some major bonuses (Favor from the queen is one of them) but also comes with a big fat stinking risk. Escape (covered it)
>>2632201I'm thinking in the forests but near the fort that way if shit hits the fan we can retreat into the dungeon.As for the interrogation, I'm thinking we do what we did with Selenas. Ask nicely the first time with the explanation that we will start cutting fingers, limbs, and even waterboarding until they start answering questions. After they answer all of our questions, we straight up kill her.Also I would like to bring the Gobs in on the torturing so we can give them some experience in how to break a POW.
>>2632234Keep in mind that the forest starts about halfway between our base and the village before it opens up to the village (If I read that correctly). We might run the risk of her screams being heard if we are too close. Then again our scuffle with the bandits went unnoticed. But you can't be too careful when it comes with torturing silly naive girls
>>2632244Of course Anon, I'm just simply trying to be cautious about our interrogation.If we must sacrifice the ability to quickly retreat into the dungeon for the simplicity of making the interrogation much easier then I will concede to the torturing near the river.
>>2632234I disagree on the her killing part, we should make this decision after we interrogate her.
>>2630294As you approach the base you notice a large baggage train of troops both mounted and unmounted stopped at the entrance to your base. Among the troops you notice a carriage that is completely covered in plates of iron.Noticing you, a rider breaks off from the group and approaches you. “Are you Sargent Baldr?” asks the young rider as he wheels his mount to a stop in front of you. One glance at the lad’s equipment and uniform told you he was in the queen’s army, so these must be your reinforcements.“Aye I am Sargent Baldr,”“The regional commander is waiting for you ahead sir, he wishes to speak with you, and I would hurry if I were you he’s in a foul mood right now.”“Relay to the commander that I will be there momentarily,”The rider gives you a small salute before turning his horse about and returning to the baggage train. Once he leaves Grintol shoots you a nervous look which you return with your own, you hadn’t expected the commander himself to show up.(1/2)
>>2632319I like how he just doesn't comment on the bleeding lass tossed over our shoulder, or the old man following behind. This trooper, this trooper right here is a good man.
>>2632384Just another day in Paradise for these soldiers.
>>2632384hope he is a reinforcement
>>2632319You arrive at the entrance to your base to see the regional commander atop his horse examining the hill your base was built into. You approach behind him, then lifting the unconscious woman off of your shoulder and placing her on the ground; you stand at attention and give a salute. “You asked for me Commander,”The man swiveled around in the saddle to look at you, a blank, almost bored expression on his face. “Yes, I did ask for you. I would like to know why you were not here to receive us this afternoon Sergeant, and also why you have an unconscious woman at your feet and sobbing old man walking behind you.”>Start at the beginning he needs to hear everything.>Keep it short best not waste his time.>[Write In]
>>2632432>Keep it short best not waste his time.If he asks for more detail on some subjects then we elaborate without missing a beat.
>>2632432>Keep it short best not waste his time.
>>2632432Keep it sorte, night time break in an subsequentes arresto of her and conspirators
>>2632432>>2632438>>2632440>>2632443>>2632509>>2632529“The woman is an intruder who attacked my garrison last night, and the old man is a herbalist who healed her wounds and then attempted to hide her.”The commander raises an eyebrow at your response before saying, “And chasing down some rebel scout was more important than staying here and watching the captured hero?”“Sir she used a magical illusion to escape, that was not something a normal scout would care, and besides that information I had gathered from the captured hero lead me to believe that his woman might be another hero.”The commander stares at you his expression unchanged before he lets out a sigh and says “A worthy excuse I suppose, now sergeant lead me to this captured hero.”The commander dismounts and a solider takes his horse, “Lieutenant,” the commander barks and a man about your age steps forward and salutes. “Lieutenant, put this woman in the carriage, and look after the old man.”The lieutenant shouts orders to other soldiers as the commander turns back to you “Proceed sergeant” he says and you head into the base.(1/2)
>>2632583this nigga is gunna straight up thief our waifu innit he?
>>2632597Let's just wait and see what will happen next.
>>2632583>pic nameDid he earn those?>>2632597Possibly.
>>2632597Waifu? I thought of Selenas as more of a daughteru.
>>2632640T-that's even Lewder
>>2632648>>2632640To be honest, this was always a possibility that would have happened since we first captured her because she's technically a POW and they should have proper interrogators and the like back at the capital.
>>2632597He already stole our execution.We are Gonçalves have to give him a good excuse tô let her here
>>2632701Maybe sending her off is for the best?
>>2632714I don't know man, she was turning, if they take her she will end up in a ditch somewhere and we would have wasted our tine
>>2632745Well to be fair, we really did not have much to do during our time waiting for reinforcements because we simply did not have enough people to order around for big projects.
>>2632689Don't be complacent with that anon! He's gunna wisk away OUR waifu!
>>2632583You lead the commander through the maze’s secret passages and down in to the kennels, where upon you stop in front of Selenas’s cage. “So this is the hero you captured,” the commander says as he stares at Selenas who turns toward the both of you.“Who are you?” questions Selenas as her gaze fixes on the commander.“Colonel Julian Crawthorne, madam, and you are?” he asks, a certain coolness to his voice.“Selenas Redwater,” she says clearly taken aback by the politeness of the Colonel.“Well Miss Redwater, I am here to transfer you a more appropriate and cleaner prison. Now let’s get you out of that cage.” He says as he opens the door and taking Selenas by the hand leads her out of the kennels you trailing in his wake.As all three of you step back out of the base the Colonel leads Selenas into the carriage, where upon seeing the unconscious woman, Selenas cries out “Valenca,” as she rushes to the woman’s side.“It would appear Sergeant that your assumption that this woman was a hero was correct. Now fall in line sergeant we are moving out.”“Excuse me sir,” you say slightly shocked at the Colonels comment.“You are coming with us to the Capital sergeant, the Queen wishes to see you,” he says as he mounts his horse.“She wants to see me you stammer.”“Of course, she wants to meet the man who captured not only one, but I guess two heroes, now fall in sergeant we are moving out.”>Stand at the back and act as rear guard.>Take the lead with head of the train>Stand at the Colonel’s side>Stick with the prisoner’s carriage
>>2632804>Stick with the prisoner’s carriage
>>2632804>Stick with the prisoner’s carriageWe're more effective when we got a metaphorical wall to place our backs up against.>>2632803PRISONER. OF. WAR.I understand that you have feelings towards her but there has to be a line where we do not cross, and the line here is we do not let our feelings get in the way of the big picture.
>>2632804>>Stick with the prisoner’s carriageIIIIII.. fucking called it!OH NO! Our delusions of grandeur! shattered!I really hope this doesn't set us back in our advances on Selenas. >>2632831hehe, chill anon. no need to be gay. This is our waifu you're talking about
>>2632804>Stick with the prisoner's carriage.We could still try to message of chao- I mean not rebelling.
>>2632804>Stick with the prisoner’s carriageShould we parrot off the information we know about the tanky hero too?
>>2632837yeah we could stick near ole officer boy and chat him up about the information we know thus far.
>>2632834>hehe, chill anon. no need to be gay. This is our waifu you're talking aboutI don't recall waifuing a literal POW, Rookie.You want us to settle down with a woman then we're getting one who is not currently an enemy of the state.>>2632837It wouldn't hurt to try, but it might possibly be old news since he is a higher up in the ranks and control.
>>2632854but love can bloom on the battlefield anon
>>2632854>nemy of the state.reee, she is pure and can learn to change her evil terrorist ways! I wonder if we're getting a promotion. Maybe to stand guard at somewhere that isn't literally McNowhere. Here's hoping for a Fortress or a castle with cute twin maids. Or maybe the queen thinks we are some master tactician who should be leading armies.. good lord I don't think we could lead an army
>>2632869Gunna need you to report to your company's commisar, soldier.
>>2632874If we leave then our goblin dudes will probably stay behind.what happened to the old man?
>>2632881he is in the wagon with the girls
>>2632869Otacon do we have to bring up the time when your crush Sniper Wolf died, or the time when your sister died, or the time when your dad died because you fucked his wife, or the time when Naomi died?Do we really have to go down this road Otacon?>>2632874"reee, she is pure and can learn to change her evil terrorist ways!"Nothing says that she cannot redeem herself Anon, but until she does so and is considered a proper citizen of the state again, we cannot afford to take risks like that.>>2632881Probably in the prisoner carriage along with Val and Sel.
>>2632881>>2632583>and look after the old man.Worry not anon! HerbalBro is here to keep us company. Maybe we can taunt him by showing our face to him. :^)
I guess there is a bright side, We didn't have time to mutilate the poor *Ass*assin girl like some of the anons wanted to do. Real glad we decided to keep her alive
>>2632903To be fair it all came down to luck more than anything.
>>2632903we didn't, I was part of the mutilation team, we only didn't do it because mr. colonel was quicker.
>>2632912Why did you want to kill her?
>>2632903Not only that, the big reason why we were willing to mutilate was simply for the case of the Assassin POW being unwilling to talk. >>2632919Same with the killing, we had no room at the metaphorical inn and we did not want to sacrifice what amount of progress we had with Selenas. High Command taking the Assassin off our hands was a blessing in disguise.
>>2632919basicly this>>2632924she was too much trouble, we already had a possible turn and she fucking almost killed a wolf!but seriously, she was too dangerous and if they didn't show up I would have voted for execution
>>2632804>>2632827>>2632853Et alYou quickly clamber up the carriage and seat yourself next to the driver as the baggage train begins to move again.From his horse the Colonel shouts to the lieutenant “Lieutenant take three squads and secure the garrison until our return, also execute the old man for treason.>Stay silent.>Try to save the old man. [Warning will not be easy]>[Write In]
>>2632965>Try to save the old man. [Warning will not be easy]Seeing as he did save our life after that bandit kicked our ass atleast trying wouldn't hurt.
>>2632965>Stay silent.The Old Man made his bed.
>>2632965>[Write In]Take off our helmet and watch silently.
>>2632965>Try to save the old man. [Warning will not be easy]Sort of a yes and a no to this. Tell the Colonel that killing the old man will leave the village without a true healer. Just a bunch of interns who haven't finished their studies under him. Perhaps he could be set under house arrest?Make it sound like a suggestion.
>>2632965>Stay silent.We have no reason to help him.
>>2632972so he can get a look at our face?
>>2632965>Stay silent.To bad for him, we only needed him to keep the yokels in the village happy.No mercy for terrorist sympathisers.
>>2632972Yer an evil bastard pinky
>>2632965>>Stay silent.I guess the village will have to make due with the apprentice
>>2632979Yes, he saved us but he also insulted us after the healing, before sending us on our way and I think it would be a pretty funny face to see before he dies.>>2632987:^)
>>2632988>>2632973>>2632969>>2632990I wonder if we can request a new Apothecary to be assigned to the village.
>>2632994They have that apprentice that nearly wet himself.At least the population is reduced enough to lighten the workload
>>2632994>I wonder if we can request a new Apothecary to be assigned to the village.Possibly for the best we tell the..>>2632997heheheh, I like the way you think, purple boy
Going to eat be back in 30
>>2632997Perhaps for light injuries and the occasional flu. But for something nasty the're gonna need someone with more experience, because it will mean the difference between a village with a fair amount of healthy villagers and a village with no villagers because Black-Plague 2 Electric Boogaloo decided to roll into town on the back of the stationwagon from hell.
>>2633018I think you missed the point of that. Its dismissive because we don't need to give a fuck.They still *technically* have a healer, so it's not our problem anymore. On to bigger and better things.
>>2633030Meh, I guess if we wanna go that route of bureaucracy then sure.
>>2633038That's not what he's saying. He's saying that we're moving on. Up on the proverbial of the beautiful and absolutely-not-totally-evil Queen's ladder of hierarchy. We no longer need to concern ourselves with this town as we will relinquish the reins to another lesser man as we pursue greater victories and cute girls . Like a true officer, we'll leave it to the NCOs. Not our problem, not our worries. Besides, if we get choked up later on the line, we can always just ask for them to send in a state-issued healer for timbuktu here.
>>2633058I'm just neutral on the subject. Don't worry, I get that we got bigger fish to fry.
>>2633058>you are promoted to LT.>now go back to that shithole, the old LT. died
>>2633096>inb4pls don't give op ideas
>>2633112Welcome to the other edged sword of the pecking order.
>>2633112>No matter how many promotions and acts of valor we get, we keep getting reassigned to the same place through a series of contrived events.>Fortunately the goblins are pretty cool, if incompetent.>>2633122Being stuck in the same place?
>>2633131I swear we really should take good care of those Gobs, they really do pull through even when the dice are being complete cunts to us.
>>2632965>>2632970>>2632972>>2632975>>2632983>>2632988“Yes sir, I’ll make it nice and public, a lesson to future dissenters,” responded the lieutenant.You say nothing a remove your helmet placing it on the seat next to you. The herbalist looked up at you and sudden recognition flashed on his face. His mouth opened to speak, but no words exited his mouth. You simply give the man a wink as he is dragged away by soldiers.The train moved at a decent pace through the country side as you lean back on the carriage.“Yeah you better get comfortable,” said the driver next to you, “It’ll be a week before we reach the capital.” Damn a whole week on the road, well at least you didn’t have to be the one meting out orders now, you could simply sit back and let your mind wander.>Talk with the driver; get an idea of what has been happening in the world since you were assigned.>Speak with the prisoners in the carriage>Just stand lookout on the wagon.>[Write In]

>>2633227Dammit we just wasted an apothecary... Also the town is doomed!!!
>>2633347YupHave a Hibiki class reaction to tide you over.
>>2633237Yeah, we got a whole week, why not both?
>>2633352We could've interrogated him!Forced him to teach us!!!My god you wasted an opportunity to learn about poisons early!!And chances are the queen will probably put us back into the village!!We're gonna waste a favor by ordering a new apothecary!Dammit! If people find out how we can't keep our word it'll be harder tricking them!
>>2633366Sounds like a whole lot of "we'll cross that bridge when we get there"Have a Hoppo as well. It's on the house.
Do you guys think we're going to get a promotion and be placed somewhere else, or is the queen going to keep us here?
>>2633227>>2633235>>2633237>>2633253>>2633257“So,” you begin, “What is your name solider.”“Carson, nice to meet you Sergeant Baldr sir,”“Please, just call me Baldr,”“Ok sir,”“Tell me Carson what has been going on lately, within the kingdom I mean. I don’t hear anything in that garrison.”“Well as you can guess we have a hero rebellion on our hands now they’ve risen up in the southwest and have taken most of the territory down there, and are expanding, although since the disappearance of two of their heroes they’ve stalled, thanks for that. Lucky for us our neighbors haven’t taken notice of the rebellion, but it is only a matter of time before they do and press us to take back their lost territory and that is when the damned rebellion will move again, the damn opportunistic vultures.”“Hmm you’re probably right, knowing both the heroes and our neighbors. Thank you Carson,”“No problem sir,”>Keep talking with Carson.>Turn to the prisoners.>Head up and speak to the Colonel
>>2633376>>Turn to the prisoners.
>>2633376>>Turn to the prisoners.Selenas, since the assassin bitch s out cold
>>2633375Probably gonna put us back there>>2633372Seriously we could've forced him to make potions for us FOR FUCKING FREE!
>>2633376>Turn to the prisoners.Is the assassin awake?
>>2633384Honestly I may have to somewhat disagree with you on that front. That guy seemed way too set in his ways to be even amicable to us as an authority figure. Hell we had to expose our "Ruthless Pack Leader" side to get him to turn on the assassin, and that's only used when we got motherfuckers who think the're tough shit. And even if we forced him to make potions for us, there was always the possibility that he could have poisoned them with a slow acting lethal chemical combo that gives us a painful death.
>>2633419We didn't "have to be" ruthless to get him to talk. That's was what the majority of the anons wanted. We could have convinced him like all the other villagers to hate the "heroes".
>>2633419damn you have a point there...we could've interrogated him or used him as bait before hanging him seeing as he actually seems to have connections to the heroes.
>>2633436Then roll a nat 1 the next time the horde decides to go full bloodthirsty on that front. It's the only way the'll ever learn.
>>2633384>Seriously we could've forced him to make potions for us FOR FUCKING FREE!Traitors die a traitors death anon. The only medicine we need is faith in the Queen
>>2633376>>2633380>>2633381>>2633403You swing out of your seat next to Carson and clamber down to the side of the iron carriage. Standing on the side board you lean in next to the barred window and you are about to call out when you here whispering voices inside.“We’ve advanced far Selenas, we’ve reached the Vitar River and are poised to cross it, you can’t tell me you’re getting cold feet now.”“It’s just that, are we really helping anything, When I first met all of you, you were so kind to all of those villagers giving them food and restoring the sparkle of hope to their eyes, and I can see those eyes still in my head, but I also see the dead and empty eyes of those people I lead into that dungeon. When you speak of rebellion I can see the end goal, those sparkling hope filled eyes, but the road to that goal is filled with the corpses of thousands upon thousands of dead and empty eyed people and their watery eyed families. Valenca I can’t face those eyes anymore.“Selenas listen to me, those peasants deaths aren’t your fault, your hand was not the one that stuck them down, it was that damned halberd wielding assholes fault. Do you understand me Selenas it wasn’t your fault.>You believe in Selenas let her answer.>Interrupt you can’t let that bitch undo all your hard work>[Write In]

>>2633600....what does this mean. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN!
>>2633600Those are rolls for Selenas to make the right choice... right?
>>2633604Welp! looks like we'll have to hang selenas.

>>2633613>>2633600I still don't knowI'll assume the first post with the blond lady is Selenas.
>>2633664It would make sense, failing miserably is true to form for the assassin.
>>2633600>>2633600>>2633613"Selenas?" you hear Valenca say in a soft voice."No, Valenca it is my fault, it is our fault, We may not be the ones who swing the swords that strike them down, but we are the ones that push them into those swinging swords. We are just as blood spattered as they are.""They did something to you. That monster of a man did something to you didn't he.""Yes, he did something to me, he opened my eyes." Selenas responds in a tone devoid of emotion.Another silence fills the air.>You have heard everything you need to hear, let them be.>Enter the conversation, by chastising Valenca>[Write In]>This will be all for tonight, I will see you guys in 10ish hourAnother thing I would like to have your guys's opinion on>Go through every day while traveling.>Skip through days of travel

>>2633697>Go through every day while traveling.Might as well.Also, a heavily armoured infantryman making JIIIIIII noises while hanging onto the side of a moving carriage makes me chuckle.
>>2633376So this is one thing to work on QM: Run-on sentences. When you write conversations out, try and punctuate them sothey match the natural breaks a person would require if they spoke your dialogue out loud. If you need to, try and read out the character's exposition to yourself. When you pause or put emphasis on an idea, the written version needs some type of punctuation; don't fear the semicolon my friend!
>>2633697>You have heard everything you need to hear, let them be.>Go through every day while traveling.
>>2633717this, if Valenca starts making trouble we intervene
>>2633697>You have heard everything you need to hear, let them be.>Go through every day while traveling.Let's see the dirty details of the roadtrip.
>>2633600>>2633697ohohohho god, when it matters we roll *goood* >>2633553Not with that attitude, anon.>>2633717ThisBut if there isn't much to actually do, don't force an option on us like "What do you have for breakfast". things like small talks with the colonel or a passing villager would be fine. If there isn't really anything for us to do that day I say we skip it and wait until the next day so it doesn't slow down the pace.
>>2633600also, >using brazilian memesthat's cultural appropriation! hehehehe
>>2633697>>2633702>>2633717>>2633984>>2634137>>2634280The silence hangs in the air for a little while longer, before you decide that this was everything you were going to hear. You clamber back up to the seat of the carriage, and sit down next to Carson. The sun sat low in the sky now as night approached. Up ahead in the train, the Colonel calls for a stop. "We'll make camp up ahead on that rise," he shouts as the baggage train rolled its way forward and up a hill before coming to a stop. You dismount the carriage and assist setting up camp, meanwhile the Colonel sets up pickets and shifts. By the time everything is setup the sun had slipped below the horizon and the only remaining light was that of the campfire and torches.You had some time before it was your turn for picket duty. You could talk with someone; although, getting some rest might be the best thing right now.Speak with:>Selenas>The Colonel>Valenca>Carson>Some of the other soldiers>Just rest for now.
>>2634389>Just rest for now.Fuck never waste rest time especially after picket.
>>2634389>>Just rest for now.being fresh for picket duty seems like a plan there are still those bandits and highwaymen we haven't delt with yet

>>2634420We can do it while resting.
>>2634389>>2634394>>2634397>>2634400>>2634420You need the sleep, especially since you were interrupted last night by the intruder. Retiring to your tent you lie down on a bed roll and fall asleep almost instantly. You are shaken awake hours later by a soldier who mumbles “Your turn,” before collapsing onto a nearby bedroll. Rising to your feet you don your armor and pick up your halberd before joining one of the squads on duty.>Let’s see if anything happens tonight, I need some d20s gentlemen.

>>2634490>>2634499>>2634504>>2634505As hours pass by with nothing happening, you feel the lids of your eyes grow heavier and heavier. Damn even with you nap you couldn’t stay awake. If only you hadn’t been up late chasing Valenca you could have gotten more sleep. Why was so warm out? The air was like a blanket. Before long your eyes close and do not open.A violent shaking wakes up as a voice whispers harshly in your ear “Sergeant, what are you doing, wake up before someone sees you.” Your eyes shoot open and you search for the source of the voice. It was Carson the wagon driver.>Admit your mistake and thank Carson for waking you.>Deny it, you weren’t sleeping just staring at something.>[Write In]

>>2634545>Admit your mistake and thank Carson for waking you.
>>2634545“Oh Carson, um I wasn’t sleeping, I was just staring at the back of my eyelids,” you say hastily as a smile forms on your lips.“Very funny, Sergeant but the Colonel would have found it less funny. He probably would have you digging the latrines for the entire trip.”“I see, I will try to avoid sleeping in front of the Colonel then.” You pause slightly then continue Thank you for waking me Carson, I owe you one,”“I’ll hold you to that Sergeant now swap out and get some actual rest,”“Yeah I think I will,” you say as you stumble back to your tent and swap out with another man. The next time you are woken, it is to help strike camp. By the time that is finished the sun had risen above the horizon and illuminated the endless fields of grass and grain, dew sparkling in the morning light.>Where will you march in the train today?>Out front, on point>With the rear Guard>Alongside the Colonel.>With the prisoner’s carriage again.>[Write In]

Talk about why such importance and all pomp and circumstance for just us and a small time terrorist. Though we don't really think we're too close to the rebellion. or maybe he knows why there was such importance for the insurrectionists to send in two of theirs to take a seemingly boring town in the middle of nowhere

Town is in the middle of a potential supply line for the rebellion or 2. will allow rebel forces to establish a better forward base into the capital when their sieging begins>>2634654Because I love you Anon but you must suffer for the good of Queen and Country.

>>2634635I can change to this, but only because I'm actually worried about Selenas fate, that nat 20 when she was defending us broke my heart
>>2634615>>2634635>>2634771>>2634779As the march begins again you stand alongside the Colonel and his body guards.Noticing you the Colonel calls out saying “Ah Sergeant, I’ve been meaning to speak with you, come closer.” You weave between the other riders until you come to stand beside the Colonel on his horse. “Sergeant, I’ve been wondering for a while now just how you managed to hold that garrison of yours against that unruly mob of peasants. The letter you sent me contained scant few details of what actually happened after the hero killed your superior and routed his forces.”>It was the goblins mostly.>I fought like a madman.>Traps did most of the work.>Sheer luck>[Write In]

>>2634838>"Well, sir, it was touch and go at times. The biggest reason we honestly stood a chance was that the group of rebels did not follow the goblins immediately. That tended us plentiful amounts of time. I rallied the goblins from their panic, readied our traps, and prepped the best ambushes I could. Handling rebellious peasents is easy compared to the elves in the west forests. Then it was just wearing the hero down until I could capture her.

Handling rebellious peasants is easy compared to the elves in the west forests. After the peasants fell, it was just a matter of wearing the hero down until I could capture her.”The Colonel starts to smile as you finish “Ah reminds me of my days as Sergeant, struggling through the tactical follies of your commander, to snatch victory form the jaws of defeat.” A distant look appears In the Colonel’s eye as he speaks, reliving his past glories.>Ask him about his days as a Sergeant.>Ask why the heroes would even target your garrison.>[Write in]

>>2635000>>2635013>>2635048>>2635075>>2635078“What did you do when you were a sergeant,” You ask the Colonel.Still staring off in the distance the Colonel answers you “I was in a marine detachment, assigned to a coastal defense fleet up north, we were following a raider ship who had just hit a village down the coast and was fleeing from us toward The Drift. Once we were far off coast spring winds and tides pulled us in further than we should have gone.” The Colonel’s tone flattened as he continued.” We ran into the bulk of a Drift raiding fleet, and unable to out run them we engaged. It was nasty ship to ship fighting, my marines and I were ordered to assault the raider flagship by our Commanding Officer. It was a suicide mission I didn’t have the men and the ship we were on was a third the size, but we went in anyways. The Captain of the ship we were on rammed the flagship, the brave bastard, it sunk his ship but we got on board. As soon as we hit the deck we got swarmed, like I knew we would. My men were getting cut down left and right no matter what we did. That is when I saw it a fire brazier on deck that archers were using to ignite arrows. I fought my way to it through the press of bodies and then kicked the damned thing over. Hot ash and coals spilled over and ignited the deck of the ship. Me and my men defended that fire until it consumed half the ship then I ordered them over the side of the ship. The crew tried to put the fire out but it was too late the flagship was going down, we had done it.” The Colonel pulls his gaze back to you as he finishes his story, “We were stuck at sea afterward and had to swim for The Drift to survive, but that is a story for another day.>Ask him why your garrison was targeted>Take you leave and return to your post.>[Write In]

>>2635440>garrison >>2633600I wonder if this 20 not only means Selenas has been convinced but also the assassin is starting to see the evil in her wicked ways.
>>2635440>>Ask him why your garrison was targetedNow we got a foot in the door.>>2635467I'm thinking she's become stronger in her own beliefs and will not be swayed as easily as she once was anymore.
>>2635483this, after that twenty I think we really set the flag on her head. as for the assassin, I don't think it was enough for her, we had numerous rolls and discussions with Selenas to put her where she is now
>>2635486Keeping her alive might be to our advantage in regards to Selenas
>>2635499yeah, honestly really glad that it worked out as it had. That dice roll is a godsend.
>>2635544I figure we tell whoever is in charge that Selenas is well on the way to rehabilitation, and Valenca is not beyond hope.Not that I believe that, but they don't need to know that. Obviously she has some friendship with Selenas and supporting her execution or torture might undo some of our work. We need to get Selenas emotionally dependant on us to secure her loyalty beyond a doubt. So we should keep them mostly isolated, but seeing her happy and successful working for the good of the kingdom might help introduce doubt in the assassins mind.
>>2635600yeah, but if they require at least one public execution as a show of strength I know who I'm naming
>>2635616or we can convince them that holding them prisoner would be a fate worse than death, as well as it baits the other heroes into trying to reclaim their lost friends.
>>2635662My idea Was that they haven't really annouced that another hero was captured. So we could pass Valenca as the rioter to be executed or imprisioned like you said and ask them to leave Selenas to our custody
>>2635677That sounds really good. We could also gain a some brownie points with Selenas because of that too. Though there is the issue with the heroes thinking they killed Selenas and that we have one of their big movers and wanting to retrieve their friend. Though I think the Queen's army would announce that they have Velenca
>>2635440>>2635464>>2635466>>2635467>>2635483“Sir I have a question I think you might be able to answer.”“Ask away Sergeant.”“Why me, why would the rebellion target our garrison?”“The answer is obvious my friend, to open a second front. They have the territory to the southeast locked down, that much is obvious. Knowing that; the heroes must have thought that by opening a second front to our southwest they could throw us off balance. To answer particularly why your garrison, I don’t know, maybe it was because it was the most isolated and hardest to reinforce, or maybe they thought your local population was the easiest to sway. I can’t really give you a definitive answer to that one. Regardless your deeds at the garrison stopped them in their tracks and now they’re reeling, which should give us time to reinforce our troops on that front and prepare a counter-attack.”>Ask the Colonel something else [specify]>Return to your post>[Write In]

See for the most part I just ran our cart back and forth between the hills and mining towns of the northwest and the capital. My father was a metal trader, and a pretty successful one. Well, he was one, until bandits attacked my cart one day when I was carrying a particularly valuable shipment metals, and some gemstones the miners had dug up. I had to abandon the cart to escape, and because of that my family lost everything. My father went into debt trying start the business again but while we were trying to get back on our feet, a noble had begun to run our routes and we just couldn’t get back into the market. The debt piled up, and we started to starve. That was when I signed up to join the army, a steady income and sign on bonus were all the incentives I needed. One day my family will climb out of its debt and I can go back to work with my father, but until that day, I’ll drive carts and carriages for the military.”“So you don’t so you weren’t a merchant, just the cart driver son of one.”“If you want to put it that way sure, but I did learn a few things from my dad.”“Such as,”Carson gives you a sideways look, “Why, you planning on becoming a merchant.”“Maybe, I don’t know, I’m just curious.”Carson gives a sigh before answering you “Sell people what they need, failing that take what one person has a lot of and bring it to others who have little of it. Basic tenants of trade right there.” Carson pauses and scratches his chin before turning back to you “That’s about all I know,” he says with a grin.>Ask Carson another question [Specify]>Check on Selenas and Valenca>Return to guarding the train.>[Write In]

While Selenas turns from the window she was looking through to stare at you, “Baldr,” she asks squinting trying to make out your shape.“Yes, Selenas it is me.”“You especially can fuck off,” Valenca says, anger entering her tone.“Be quiet Valenca,” Selenas snaps. Her words seem to stun Valenca long enough for her to cross the carriage and come to your window. “Where are we going,” are the first words out of her mouth.“The capital, probably, don’t worry Selenas; I’m doing everything I can help you.”A laugh reverberates inside the carriage, “That’s rich,” Valenca snickers, “One of her majesty’s royal hounds helping out a hero,” Her laugh echoes loudly around the carriage.>Address Valenca>Ignore her continue to speak with Selenas.>[Write In]
>>2639182>Ignore her continue to speak with Selenas.Disregard bitch, keep talking with potential apprentice.
>>2639182>Ignore her continue to speak with Selenas.I won't lie to you, things are grim, I'll try to convince them to at least give you an alternative punishmentif Valenca keeps up we can say.Shut your goddamn mouth, , do you have any idea how close Needles was from death? that was not combat, you fucking tried to murder him.You don't get to walk the high moral ground
>>2639182>>Ignore her continue to speak with Selenas.
>>2639182>Address ValencaTell me about yourself. Why did you become a hero?
>>2639182>Ignore her continue to speak with Selenas.Things aren't looking good but it's not hopeless.
>>2639217yee boy, this
>>2639182>>2639202>>2639217>>2639222>>2639252>>2639315>>2639357You keep your cool and continue to talk with Selenas. Valenca won’t get a rise out of you. “I know things aren’t looking good but I will do all I can to see you get a lighter sentence.”“A lighter sentence he says, Yeah a horribly slow and painful death swapped out for a quick one,”You turn your head to face Valenca, “You want to talk about slow and painful deaths Valenca, then how about you explain what the poison on your daggers does to your victims. Because my comrade Niddle can go into full detail on what it did to him.”Selenas turns to face Valenca at your words. “You poisoned them Valenca,”“Valenca simply shrugs “That peasant slaughtering goblin got what was coming to him.”“Actually he is fine as of now,” the pleased smile on Valenca’s face slides away as you speak “I managed to save his life, and that of the wolf you shot.” Valenca scowls and starts muttering under her breath, but otherwise remaining silent.At last you could speak to Selenas without interruption.>What else did you wish to say.
>>2639528How are your legs, did the balm work?I'll try to put you in my custody so you can serve your sentence helping the common folk, if anything new happens I'll let you know

>>2639528>>2639556>>2639573>>2639644“How are your legs, did the balm work?”“My legs are fine now; my skin doesn’t itch and bleed anymore, the balm worked wonders. Thank you very much Baldr.”“Don’t mention it. I couldn’t leave you to die from infected wounds.”The sudden stop of the Carriage jolts you and you almost fall from the carriage. You look up at Carson and shout. “What the hell happened?”“I don’t know but the whole train has stopped.”>Stay with the carriage whatever happened will get resolved soon.>Head to the front, see what stopped the train>[Write In]
>>2639977>>Head to the front, see what stopped the trainwe are a do not a don't
>>2639977>Stay with the carriage whatever happened will get resolved soon.It might be an ambush, stay and look out for rebels.
>>2640006this here, If anyone needs us then we would be called on. Besides, we are one of the "guests" of the train not really a full on part of this detachment
>>2639977>>Stay with the carriage whatever happened will get resolved soon.More likely than not they're trying to save the heroes
>>2639977>>Stay with the carriage whatever happened will get resolved soon.KEEP YOUR HEAD ON A SWIVEL AND DO NOT ASSUME THAT WAS JUST SIMPLY THE AIR.
>>2640077cmon anon, you are imagining things, it's clearly the air.said the guard with an arrow sticking out of his forehead
>>2639977>Stay with the carriage whatever happened will get resolved soon.
>>2639977>>2640006>>2640013>>2640019>>2640077>>2640137You hop off the side of the carriage and survey the surrounding terrain. Tall grasses surround both sides of the train. A steady plains wind tosses the grasses all around creating a wave effect that turns the grass lands into a green ocean. As you look toward the front of the train you notice thin swirling black clouds of smoke rising into the air. You tighten your grip on the halberd as the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.“Carson get down from the carriage,” your tone is hard and low.Carson dismounts the carriage immediately and comes to your side. “What is it?” he asks.“Just a feeling Carson, just a feeling.”While you and Carson stand there, a solider walks back toward the tail of the train.“What happened solider,” you ask as he passes by.“A dead trader and his cart are blocking the path ahead. From the looks of it they were hit some time this morning, whoever did it is probably long gone by now.” The sound of stamping hooves and creaking cart wheels signified the resumption of the train. “Looks like they cleared it” the solider says as he continues on his way.Carson climbs back up the carriage as you hop onto the side board once more. As the carriage rolls past the ambush point you get a good look at the carnage. The trader’s body was a mangled mess of broken bones and bruises. His horse a bloody mess of sword stabs. Whoever did this just wanted to kill, as most of the supplies were still in the charred wagon.Your eyes remained on a swivel until the setting sun brought the caravan to a halt for the day.Speak with:>Selenas>The Colonel>Valenca>Carson>Some of the other soldiers.>Rest
>>2640665>The ColonelWe gotta get on the same level as him about this sort of shit>Some of the other soldiers.May as well get cozy with the rest of the blokes

>>2640718not the time or the place
>>2640665>The Colonel>Some of the other soldiers.We just had an elf war flashback.
>>2640718She's too damn hopped up on her own farts to even give us the time of day without throwing an insult our way.
>>2640732yeah, that grass would be a perfect spot for the knife ears
>>2640764In the trees, the ditches, the tall grass fucking elves man they were everywhere. You look away for a second and your buddy has his throat carved open.This is an ambush the heros(possible elf agents) are going to try and spring their own.
>>2640857GOOKS IN THE WIRE! Well technically SPRITES IN THE TREES!
>>2640665>>Some of the other soldiers.We should get to know other soldiers too. We're the understaffed Sergeant who captured two live heroes, let's go introduce ourselves.
>>2640665>>2640686>>2640732>This is my last post for the night, see you all Monday for the next thread.After the tents had been steaked up and soldiers settled into pickets you look for the Colonel. You find him in his tent, looking over some maps of the area.
