    189 KB Riddle of Steel: When in Rome... John Galt 08/29/11(Mon)19:30 No.16109227  
    This is John Galt speaking, with a special TV offer.
    No wait. My mistake, I'm here with with The Riddle of Steel. I'm here to settle some scores, and the tally currently holds Gizka 1, Rome 0.

    Last time, we left off with our pigeon-sized protagonist having scaled to the top of a rookery at the edge of the interior city, seeking escape from the Vatican City after her assassination of Cardinal Whatshisname, the killing of several of his guards during a cross-city rooftop sprint, and a fortunate escape into a conveniently placed cart of straw.

    Now Gizka, the intrepid slave-turned-vigilante-turned-murderer-for-hire, finds herself just within leaping distance of the city's walls, but beset by a final obstacle before her hoped escape: A guardsman entertaining a prostitute on the sheltered section of wall over which she had planned to make her escape.

    Will she escape to continue her aimless life of entertaining violence? That's up to you folks.
    Following will be a recap of our heroine's stats, and then we may continue!

    Fk yeah! I've been waiting for another RoS all day!

    from what I remember of the last thread, we can't simultaneously kill both the guard and the prostitute.

    However, I have given it some thought, and I have come up with a plan!

    We hold our sword in one hand, dagger in the other, leap down and stab the prostitute with the knife for say 12 dice (she screams loudest, she dies first) then on the next round we go for the guards exposed groinal area with gusto!

    but yeah, just to clarify, we leave the dagger embedded in the prostitute's throat/face because it would be a bitch to pull out quick enough to turn and fight the guard.

    Alright, that's easy enough. Now let me see if I read you right: The plan is to leap on down, and kill the prostitute and the guard? That's a bit callous, but we've established by now that Gizka's not exactly an empathic human being.

    It'd be a hell of an acrobatics to get to them without hitting the ground first and giving herself away, but Gizka's a hell of an athlete. Want to roll Move (11) at her Acrobatics of 6, to see if the jump can be made?

    Anything but the most outrageous failure will still get her onto the wall and probably unharmed, but getting far enough to kill both of them before they can react will be a bit trickier.

    Aagh, dissent! Dissent is fun.

    Alright, now in our defense here, the amount of Acrobatics successes we just rolled (what is that, 7?) is enough to actually reach both of them, like, straight top-down drop.

    A happy medium might just be to land on them, and risk minor injury to slam one of them into the parapets, with probably slightly-less-than-fatal effects, leaving the other one to be killed or taken out in hand-to-hand. Even at the maximum penalty of -4, Gizka's combat pool with open-hand or pugilism would still be 22.

    Given the circumstances, that guard probably doesn't have much... Er... Groin armor.

What I mean is for [a rather gritty, 'swift & deadly' combat, low magic (with consequences) game with a few separate races and the option to tech up], is it any good? would there be better systems for something like that?

    Alright. Let's go with the takedown. In the future, I'll be less trigger-happy with my selections.

    Gizka steps back into the Rookery, and with a running start, flings herself off the very edge of the pigeon roosts. She sails about thirty feet (thanks to her height advantage) before landing on the unfortunate whore.

    Thanks to her enormous successes and soft landing place, Gizka evades all harm, but the prostitute will take about half of the leaping distance's damage for being smashed into a stone parapet... Which is 8 damage, randomly distributed via falling.

    The guard lets out an EEP of disappointment, but nothing quite resembling a shout.

    She's probably out with bruised knees and a lump on her head. and a few purple spots on the ribs.

    Of course, with a WP score probably in the 2-3 range, odds are she's not getting back up.

    Gizka's back on her feet in a second of course. The guard, meanwhile, is struggling to pull up his pants and grab his spear from its leaning place at the same time.

    It's a good game for what it does. The combat is great, and the skill system is inoffensive, if not phenomenal per-se. The magic is actually pretty good if you get the hang of it, but it suffers from chronic vagueness and it obviously intends for the players and the seneschal to come to their own decisions involving what can do what. Particularly with the Revised Sorcery rules.

    I'd say Riddle of Steel, WFRP, and Burning Wheel are the three best games at what they do specifically, but I am unqualified to give you an order of quality. Riddle has its flaws, definitely. The game failed for a reason, but it's also the sort of game that if you like it, you'll LOVE it, and find yourself going through hell and high water to make it work for your group.

    Oh yeah, let me be more specific on how that works.

    Gizka's jump wasn't uncontrolled falling, but rather a leap. It was a deliberate affair, and she scored well enough on an acrobatics that I'd rule she took no damage, having landed on soft prostitute.

    The prostitute, however, was just slammed into the stone footing of the wall by a flying woman. Full damage didn't seem fair, so I figured about 15 feet of 'falling on hard ground would be appropriate. Falling onto hard ground is 1 damage per 2 feet fallen, so, about 7.5. I figure hey, why not 8.

    Falling damage ignores toughness and armor, and is simply applied via a random table. So, those 8d10 were for the actual hit location. To save time, I skipped the exact locations, since it's just a prostitute, and I didn't want to hold you guys up for 15 minutes going through the umpteen hit locations.
    >> Kzyrgis 08/29/11(Mon)20:50 No.16110190
    Damn you I worked out the hit locations then went "nah, who cares" too. but now I feel obliged to say

    Ha! You've done well. Yeah, she's got a few sprains, and is probably winded and dazed. I doubt she's going to be screaming before we can... Deal with her. Whatever that means.

    Meanwhile, we've got us a dead man! He's obviously surprised here, and unprepared, so we'll halve his CP. I like the sound of that thrust for 14 to the face or groin. He will panickingly try to block it with his hands with 3 dice, and will take half damage to his arms in addition to his likely lethal damage.

    So, 14 at 5.

    Good lord. That man is dead. I think that's a str 14 hit to the head or groin (level 5 wound), and then a strength 7 (which is a level 3 wound) to the arm.

    Let's say... Gizka nails his forearm to his chin with a thrust, and kicks him off of it, to land in a heap against the crenelations.

    That's one thread dealt with, and another neutralized... But what about the girl?

    Theeere we go. Gizka takes the guard's dagger out, and, after smearing some brain matter onto it, leaves it in the whore's hand.
    She looks bruised up, and will probably (if caught at all) claim that she was beaten and acted in self defense.

    The alternative being... Claiming that she was struck by the fist of God and woke up next to a dead guy with the knife conveniently in her hand.

    ...Nice ass though. Gizka shakes the thought from her mind. "You're not in the pits anymore," she reminds herself, and contemplates a stiff drink once she reaches the dustoff site, which is a trailhouse less than four miles away.

    The wall is about 50 feet high at this point, as it faces the water. She could climb most of the way down, and then jump in with no risk.

    Sound like a plan?

    I... I can't argue with that. That's actually a better plan. If it goes awry, it still looks like she got into a fight, killed the guy, and then fell off afterwards.

    Alright. She's in a lot of pain and dazed from the suddenness of the impact. Tossing her over would be as easy as helping her to her feet and pushing her. Odds of survival... Low, but that's showbiz.

    This is the funniest shit I've ever heard. I'm going to look up the water-falling damage business, but first...

    Gizka contemplates the distance from the wall to the water. Eh... Maybe ten yards? Twenty? And how deep is it... It could be mud two or three feet down if she doesn't time it right. The real question is-

    "F... Fuck, whaat," Gizka pivots on both heels to see the prostitute struggling to try and stand up, crosseyed. Pretty thing, blonde, a bit crosseyed, but that was probably the shock. Reminds her a bit of her old mistress's daughter, some Austrian lady or another. Always reminded her of a bird, the way she would cock her head and look at the slaves.

    ...Bird. Heh.

    "Hey, can you fly?"
    "Wha?" the woman looks up, confused, and Gizka grabs her by the collar of her half-donned vest.

    Let's make a grapple, shall we? 24 dice sounds appropriate, Gizka's about an inch shorter, but significantly stronger, and not hurt or surprised, so let's say the ATN of 7. Throw well, and her odds of survival increase as she's further from the walls.

    That'd be a level 2 to the arm, another to the chest, maybe a neck or shoulder bump, and like... A leg.

    hey this is graceful for a half conscious prostitute we should totally drop her off another wall to see how she does when awake.
    >> John Galt 08/29/11(Mon)21:51 No.16110890
    Yeah, let's do that one. Less likely to kill her.

    Somehow, the girl managed to catch it all on her limbs and shoulder. She probably curled up into a ball.

    Gizka sees her hit the water with a wince. Note: Don't curl up.

    Now, she's got Swim at 8... Diving could let her get through this with little or no damage, but is it worth the risk? The girl will probably drown if she doesn't get down there soon, of course, but Gizka's probably still debating how much she cares.
    >> Kzyrgis 08/29/11(Mon)21:52 No.16110897

    >> Anonymous 08/29/11(Mon)21:54 No.16110940
    Is she under the water at this point, or floating on top? Either way she'd probably take less damage than normal, but it seems like it'd be better for us if she were on top.

    Landing on her might increase the damage we take, and then we've got to get her to shore too. A clean dive is probably the best call here, the whore's had enough of a workout for one night. (Or has she.)

    >> John Galt 08/29/11(Mon)21:57 No.16110977
    The way I'm looking at the rules here, a successful dive merely decreases the damage to 1 per 10 feet. Now I hate water, but I know a thing or two about surviving falls into it, and that seems a bit inaccurate.

    Let's say that by succeeding a Swim to perform a successful dive, Gizka can halve the distance of the fall. That'd be, what, 30 feet, 3 damage? Straight up nothing for our girl, unless we roll 3 6s or something. Then we're fucked.

    Or, we could just jump on the prostitute and take our 5 damage. Maybe acrobatics for 3.
    >> Kzyrgis 08/29/11(Mon)22:01 No.16111030

    Since it's a practical certainty that we can pass the swim dive, we might as well go for the 3 instead of the 5 damage.
    Pity though, jumping on her again would have been funny.
    >> Anonymous 08/29/11(Mon)22:03 No.16111044
    Solution: Roll the swim, and if successful allocate 1 damage to each of the arms and then 1 to the head.

    All of these are basically irritating wounds, not stuff that actually leaves damage.

    But if we fail, then... You know. Make it the full 1 per 10. For a botch, show no mercy.
    >> John Galt 08/29/11(Mon)22:06 No.16111070
    Alright! The dive it is. Let the poor girl take a breather from falling damage.

    So, dive is AG (10) at 8. Success will, as suggested, limit the damage to a level 1 to the arms and head. A botch will... Probably result in death, but don't think about that!

    10 at 8.

    That'll do. Gizka performs a flawless swan dive, and arcs upon landing to surface before she can potentially hit the bottom.

    Somewhat to her surprise, she finds the beleaguered and confused woman she just flung off on the shore, unconscious and half-drowned. Some people get all the luck.

    She's about four miles from the roadhouse where her horse and pay are, and she needs to get there before tomorrow, but it's not that far. There might be guards looking for suspicious hooded smallsword-wearing 4'8" green eyed women, though...

    It's true, the girl is about Gizka's size, though a bit taller and a lot softer of build, she could probably be fitted into the stereotypical assassin outfit with little effort.

    Unfortunately, the girl was also only partially clad when Gizka threw her off the wall. Perhaps between the two outfits, there's enough to fill the gaps, though, but it's hardly a coherent disguise.

    So, the options:

    -Disguise ourselves as prostitute, head to roadhouse.
    -Disguise ourselves as beggar, head to roadhouse.
    -Take whore with us to roadhouse as cover. Maybe get a ride in a cart using injured girl as cover.
    -Others involving killing and eating the girl and riding a cat into Mordor.

    That's fair enough.

    Gizka makes a quick job of changing clothes with the girl. Wet stuff is harder to get off of course, but if you can take a man's eyes out without touching the lids, you can get a wet dress off.

    It's hideous. The dress is that pale pink color that comes out of a punctured lung, except without the satisfaction of someone dying. Gizka winces to don it, but does so. She tries to fit her unconscious benefactor in her own clothes, but has to cut them in a few places to make them fit-and to make them less recognizable.

    Let's make a Disguise roll, which is at Acting+2. For us, that's difficulty 9 using Gizka's Perception.

    So, 8 at 9. That's pretty solid odds actually.

    Three successes! That's not bad. Odds are any guards observing would only have their measly perception of 4-5 at 8 or 9. They're looking for a heavily armed assassin, not two women with bad taste in clothing.

    So, Gizka successfully dons the frilly pink dress of shame, and, regretfully, mauls her time tested leathers to simultaneously fit a larger woman AND look less badass.

    With marginal success, and an occasionally groaning but otherwise unresponsible partner in crime, Gizka can now set off to the Adjective Noun roadhouse. She's strong enough to carry the girl, but it'd be better to try and get someone to help her.

    The roads aren't crowded, but everyone has heard about the trouble today, and folks are a bit suspicious. Approaching the road from the cover of the bushes. Gizka discerns that several guards are walking about looking exasperated, while a few carts and folk on foot trundle by.

    One has more than enough space for two smallish women.

    Gizka could try to talk them into giving her a ride. She does have a single florin (which is kind of like having a thousand dollar bill, it's so valuable that it might as well be worthless) and some chump change lira, so she could also try to pay for transport.

    Alright. Gizka asks a farmer to help her and her poor sister in law go to meet their uncle, and offers him a Lira to ride in his cart. They seem a bit suspicious, but agree.

    The man and his two sons help Gizka get the girl in. Upon asking what happened, Gizka spins them a tale about a horrible brewery incident that killed her brother, and left this poor widow alone in the world, such that they're now seeking out a relative of theirs at the roadhouse.

    Good rolling men!

    The benevolent peasants are so sympathetic that they pick up the pace a bit, and give Gizka a cup of wine, which she politely pretends to drink, but instead pours down the unconscious woman's throat. (Drinking is, of course, against the word of the prophet, and Gizka is already far from confident of her chances with the almighty.)

    No suspicions seem to be raised, as the wagon's owner takes this route often, and is familiar to the patrols. The ride lasts for about an hour, thanks to a bit of foot traffic and another wagon with a broken axel, but they reach the destination in good order, without interference.

    Gizka enlists the help of the two sons of the driver to help her 'sister' into the building, intending on renting a room and deciding on whether or not to smother her to death later. She has the girl brought up to a cheap bed, and thanks her helpers with another lira.

    With that problem resolved, however temporarily, she must now set about finding her contact, getting paid outrageous amounts of gold, and leaving this godforsaken penninsula before the Borgias can capitalize upon her favor to them.

    That's a good question, Satan.

    The answer is that he is to await someone requesting a "Hatchet in a blanket" from the innkeeper, at which point the contact will be notified of her presence and will come in to meet her.

    That does mean that she has a bit of leeway, it's not like the guy is sitting there twiddling his thumbs. She could afford to get back into her clothes, however ragged, though there's always the chance of a guard bumbling in and getting lucky recognizing her.

    Gizka doesn't answer, but instead demands that the girl undress, and begins taking off her own ridiculous pink costume.
    The woman, visibly mixed on what this means, obeys. She is clearly used to disrobing in a hurry, and has them off before Gizka can figure out how to get her arms out of the puffy sleeves.

    Gizka finishes undressing, and takes and dons her old clothes as best she can. The jack will never quite be the same again... Looking down, she finds the girl reaching for her dress. More by reflex than anything, Gizka steps on her hand.
    "You dress, but do not leave. I have plans, might need another person. You like money?"
    The girl, obviously terrified, nods.
    "Good. There is money in helping me. And less flying. Be a good bird, stay here, and you will see gold. We will be good friends, yes?"
    The girl nods again, frantically.
    "Good! I will have someone send up a soup. Soups. Is soup singular? Can I say 'a soup'?" Gizka furrows her brow. The girl looks confused. "Whatever. You stay."

    Gizka closes the door, and returns downstairs, confident that she has conveyed the message, but now concerned about her grasp of the language. Her plan right now is to collect her pay, and either simply leave, or depending on her mood, go back upstairs and give the girl a few lira for her silence. Depends on what the Borgia want.

    Downstairs, she gives the signal to the innkeeper, and asks for a bowl to be sent up to the girl. Then, sits down to wait for her ship to come in. A ship with golden sails.

    And in that ship walks, with the signal-a live dove in a cage. He is a tall man, with deep set eyes and a sharp beard. He sits across a small table from Gizka in the crowded common room, and there is a moment of silence.

    "It is done, then?" he asks.

    "Yes. Killed him in that big building, with the pretty roof." Gizka answers.

    "How did you escape?"

    "A bird showed me how to fly." She almost smiles at his expression.

    "Good... Then you have earned your pay. A thousand florins, courtesy of my master."

    "I'll be glad to collect, and leave this accursed country."

    Well, one would certainly say "we're making a soup for dinner tonight," but that sort of usage only seems to work when talking about the whole soup. Here, when only referring to a bowl of soup, it doesn't sound as good. Although, if they had been talking about the variety of soups available, and Gizka decided that she would have one sent up but didn't know which kind yet, "I will have a soup sent up" does sound ok.

    Fuck it, leave. It's late and I'm tired.

    Check the money first.
    ALWAYS check the money first.
    As long as no one's peeking in the wagon, at least.

    Check the money, always check the money. bring the contact out with you, so if the money is booby trapped or it's a trap his self preservation will make him tell you before you both die. Then go deal with the girl and leave. DO NOT tell him about the girl,it's always good to have a surprise up our sleeve even if that surprise is one terrified wet prostitute.

    It's like Sheep. "A sheep" is fine for singular, "Sheep" is the plural.

    lol, when referring to a quantity of soup, you refer to the container(s) with soup in them. ex. A bowl of soup, two cups of soup, ext. Don't ask me why, I don't make the language, I just speak it.

    (Ahh, that makes sense.)

    Alright then! Gizka goes to check the chest and then leave. The wagon is right on the edge of the water, next to the ferry. The idea being to take it across the Tiber, and head north towards Bologna. Gizka opens the chest and...

    There is the rapid clicking of matchlock mechanisms pulling back, behind her.

    ...That figures, doesn't it. She takes the single rose out of the chest, and turns. There are four of them, counting the messenger... And their master. He hadn't changed.

    "Sorry, Sarah." Tiberius shrugged. "If you can kill one Cardinal, you can kill another. And letting you go would just be bad planning."

    Gizka considered her last words carefully.

    "Piss." she said, flatly.

    Four guys, one shot each. We're quick, but we're not that quick; we'll take at least one or two shots. The only hope I guess would be to run for the ferry and hope we can launch it quickly. Stay on the edge and fight them off from there, if we make it that far.

    Both valid!

    There is a muffled cry from the window above. The mercenary spins to look upwards, and in a fit of foolishness, his men glance too.

    The whore vanished from the window, covering her mouth. Gizka is flying off the dock before their eyes even flick back.

    Alright! Last roll of the day boys.

    4 gunmen, with their shooting pools of 5 (sans aim, because of distraction) versus Gizka, who we'll say can use Acrobatics for this one.

    This is gonna be a doozy.

    forget the previous post I made.

    Throw the rose at the leader, hope that it distracts him long enough to leap in the water. then swim to the other side of the ferry, pull your way up and kill them if they get onto the ferry too.

    Three of the bullets wizz on past. And for the barest instinct, Gizka thinks she might just make it out alive.

    >"Serious damage to internal organs and heavy bleeding."

    She doesn't feel it, really. She is aware of it. She is aware of hitting the water. She is aware of the taste of the river. And of the blood. This wasn't how it was supposed to be. The rose's thorns are dug into her hand. She tries to let go, but can't.

    She waits for the blow to come, the second barrage, or a spear-thrust, but it doesn't. Just silence, as the darkness creeps at the corners of her eyes.

    She can''t feel much. It is cold. Colder than the water ought to be. The water almost feels warm. But she can feel her teeth, when she clamps them together, and thinks what she assumes are to be her final thoughts...
