You still need to visit the garrison to collect the reward the town guard promised you. You're free to continue studying information at the library or leave and go somewhere else in Oakheart.Reading Topics>Fiction>Monsters>Nations>Magic>Religion>write in>leave the library>write in
>>2299173Leave the gang in the library and go collect your reward, give everyone a free day. Meet up later
>>2299230This sounds good
>>2299230>>2299264>>2299365>You gain 1000 XP from the library>You now have 7975You tell your party to take the rest of the day off and go to the garrison alone. The door guards say they've been expecting you and lead you to a room with the Captain and his second in command.Borin: "Are you alright Christof? Your arm looks hurt"Captain: *gives a slight 'get on with it' gesture*Borin: "Oh right... for your assistance in apprehending the mercenaries we offer you this reward of 40 Talons">You now have 308 TalonsCaptain: "Fair pay for the casting of a few level one spells if you ask me. Now this isn't over yet, there are still some mercs remaining that need punishing not to mention we need to find out what happened to the people they abducted. If you wipe out the terrorists and bring back the missing people I'll reward you with 700 Talons. You in?">"I'm in">"Why do you need me for this?">"How about you use those 700 Talons to buy some manners?">"I accept but before I go I'd like to talk about the orc situation in Clarcton">write in
>>2299373>>"I accept but before I go I'd like to talk about the orc situation in Clarcton"We should wait until our arms good before we go
>>2299373>"Why do you need me for this?" What are you? A detective? What can you do that they apparently cant?
>>2299402>>2299377>"Why do you need me for this?" "I don't. The mercs have a hideout in the woods. It's got some traps and more importantly they apparently have a skilled illusionist with them. I felt like adventurers would be a better choice for the mission. Also I don't want to send any guards far away from Oakheart in search of the missing people.">"I accept but before I go I'd like to talk about the orc situation in Clarcton""I'm quite happy to slaughter orc scum, but the town council wont let me leave until they're 100% convinced the abduction problem is solved. After the last of the mercenaries are put down me and my men should be able to join the fight.">write inYour arm is probably good to go now but it might be better to take it easy for the rest of the day.>Merchant district>Main district>find your party members and hunt down the mercenaries>write in
>>2299474Your party could be literally anywhere, head to the Merchant district and spend your money on something pointless. After head back to the tavern and chill, we will go bandit hunting in the morning.
>>2299548Satisfied you decide to take it easy for the rest of the day and meet up with your party for the mission tomorrow.The following morning you find Ulric, Salaman and Alina have returned to the tavern and are waiting around for you to lead them.Alina: "Good morning Christof, how's the arm?"Ulric: "Hiya">"Follow me guys. We've got a quest">"Everyone. We're taking down the rest of the mercenaries. They've got a hideout in the woods and it's up to us to stop them! They have traps and an illusionist">Merchant district>Main district>World Map>write in
>>2299688>>"Everyone. We're taking down the rest of the mercenaries. They've got a hideout in the woods and it's up to us to stop them! They have traps and an illusionist"
Oh we need some of that purple powder in case of more invisible enemies. Or maybe like flour.
>>2299700You might be able to find a place you can buy that stuff somewhere in Oakheart. Not in the main/merchant district thoughFlour is also a viable option for the price conscious adventurer
>>2299688>>"Everyone. We're taking down the rest of the mercenaries. They've got a hideout in the woods and it's up to us to stop them!

Or maybe like flour.This is a good idea.>>2299718>You might be able to find a place you can buy that stuff somewhere in Oakheart.>Flour is also a viable option for the price conscious adventurerIf we think flour could work, we should just use that rather than trying to find that purple powder, in my opinion.
>>2299718>>2299733Flour it is!
>>2299474>The mercs have a hideout in the woods. It's got some trapsI take it we have a firm location then. Excellent.
>>2299733>>2299741>>2299745>"Everyone. We're taking down the rest of the mercenaries. They've got a hideout in the woods and it's up to us to stop them! They have traps and an illusionist"Salaman: "That would explain the invisibility, be careful not to fall for any cheap illusions"You make a quick stop to purchase a sack of flour and head on your way. After hiking for a while you reach the location the guards gave you. Some old structure in the middle of the woods that has all of its ground level windows boarded shut. You can faintly hear voices coming from within.Ulric: "This must be the place, the bad guys are inside">Eavesdrop>Knock on the front door>Barge in through the front weapons drawn>climb onto the roof (Athletics 44%)>write in
>>2299870Eavesdrop but send a scorpion out to check for traps*
>>2299870Uhh, there is probably an invis guy keeping watch. Not sure how to deal with that though
>>2299886>>2299955>"Salaman, summon something to sweep for traps, I'm going to listen in on what they're saying"Salaman: "As you say, come forth little scorpion"Salaman summons a scorpion which starts scuttling around as much space as it can trying to trigger a trap or aggravate an invisible guard. You hear a soft click as a negative energy glyph is triggered. The scorpion survives and continues working as you creep closer to a barricaded window."Forget it, your men are obviously not coming back, they're probably dead or worse. Our partnership has come to an end here is your final payment.""Wait! we can still rescue them. With your invisibility we can break into Oakheart's prison and spring them out! Then we can go back to capturing people for you""I'm afraid my master explicitly told me to end our contract when this inevitability occurs. You're on your own now.""Bah! Go then, I don't need your help. I'll think of something"You hear footsteps coming to the front door.>hide and observe (stealth 53%)>prop the sack of flour so it lands on whoever walks out the front door>confront whoever is coming out>enter the building>run away>write in

>>2299990>>2300055"WHAT FOUL SORCERY IS THIS!?"You hear the footsteps of at least two people rushing to investigate."Who are you!? What is the meaning of this juvenile ambush!">engage combat>grab him by the collar>punch>"My name is Christof, I'm here to rescue the people you stole">"Good luck turning invisible now chump">"I'm here to arrest you come along quietly and you will not be harmed">"Tell me where you've taken the prisoners or I'll crush your skull" (intimidate 25%)>"State who you are, whom you serve and why you've kidnapped all those innocent people">write in
>>2300073>punchClearly the path to victory is violence first, then talking.
>>2300073I'm here to arrest you. Come quietly and you will not be harmed.
>>2300073engage combat, let god sort em out
Rolled 1 (1d3)>>2300096>>2300120>>2300128I'll roll a dice to choose which of these I go with
>>2300131You slug him in the face"ARGH! That's it! You're dead"He raises his hands to cast a spell but the door opens behind him and two people in iron armour come out. A woman with a sword and a bearded man with an axe.Axeman: "An adventurer! You must be the one responsible for my men disappearing. How would you like to make a deal?">"I don't deal with criminals, now throw down your weapons">What kind of deal?">"Take me to the prisoners or die">"I'm putting a stop to all three of you, you can come quietly or we can do it the hard way">"Your mercenary band only has 2 members left? Pathetic">write in
>>2300131>"I'm putting a stop to all three of you, you can come quietly or we can do it the hard way"Unless the mercs have a sudden change of heart, I don't think so.
>>2300193Make a deal if they are willing to turn on the mage, we know the mage already terminated his contract with them. We can just backstab the rogues after we down the mage.Besides, we don't even know where all the people they kidnapped are.
>>2300228This sounds good.
>>2300228>>2300240>"Yeah we can make a deal, if you turn on the mage"Swordswoman: "Sounds like a good deal boss"Axeman: "That's right we are no longer allies! that makes you disposable!"He raises his axe to attackMage: "Fools! Let's see you attack me when you're ensnared in flaming chains!"The mage casts a spell that shoots out three sets of flaming chains that wrap around everyone next to him. He starts sprinting away. Leaping over the scorpion as he goes.The chains squeeze you tightly and burn you for 6 damage Ulric bursts out of the bushes and starts running towards the mage.>struggle>stop drop and roll>write in
>>2300279>stop drop and roll.
>>2300279>>struggleToss away the armor if we have to. Can't afford to waste time putting out the fire.
>>2300279I want to say it could be an illusion but i dont know if that changes anything
>>2300337You can try and disbelieve an illusion by just standing there for a moment and allowing it to harm you. If it's an illusion it goes away and you still have time to take your turn. If it's actually real it automatically hits you and does maximum damage and your turn is used up.
>>2300356Then I would say yeah its fake, the mercs are our semi allies now vs the mage so taking damage doesn't matter
>>2300279>>struggle...to disbelieve the illusion.Also, ow. Illusions are hot.If we put out the (totally illusionary) chains, we're still chained.If we remove the burning chains, we're free in one step.If we fail to remove the chains, we just welcomed ourselves to another 6 damage. Damn, but them's the breaks.>Plan B:Our legs are free, armless tackle the bastard if Ulric can slow him down for us.Stop, drop, and roll on his ass.>>2300286>Toss away the armor if we have to.I can't imagine our armor is loose enough for us to do that, especially with tightening fire chains. It's not like he just threw a tent on us and lit it on fire.
>>2300365I am a retard. I didn't realize those could be illusions. I'll vote for trying to disbelieve the illusion then.
>>2300356>>2300365Ah, cool.I also want to do this.Despite the fact that "I disbelieve the illusion." is easily in the top 5 most often last words of an adventurer.
>>2300380>>2300371>>2300370>>2300365You firmly believe the chains aren't even real. Why bother struggle against the chains if they don't exist? You do nothing and the chains disappear. You can no longer see the chains wrapping the mercenaries but they're are behaving like they're still bound.You gain 6 hit points (or rather never lost them in the first place)Alina shoots the mage for 11 damage.The mage pulls out a wand and flicks it at Ulric and Alina causing a cyclone to form at their feet lifting them helplessly into the air. He points the wand downwards and a wall of fire appears in front of him. The wall of fire isn't very wide and you could easily go around it.>Go around the fire wall, why take the risk?>It's not real I'll just go through it>attempt to disbelieve the cyclones>write in
>>2300420>>It's not real I'll just go through itThis turbonerd is about to get slammed.
>>2300420>It's not real I'll just go through itThis nigga is all show
>>2300420YES!Abjuration > Illusion >>It's not real I'll just go through itAnd even if it does turn out to be real, I'd like to return to my previously stated Plan B:>Stop, drop, and roll on his ass.
>>2300425>>2300429>>2300438The fire is obviously not real you go right through it. It disappears as you touch it. The summoned scorpion, apparently able to see illusions goes around the fire and triggers an explosion rune for 47 damage"I see you're a little smarter than the average martial. But let's see you deal with THIS!"He suddenly splits into multiple copies of himself. They all start laughing with identical voices."Which one of us is real?""Could it be me?""Or maybe me""Maybe I'm here""Or here"From behind you hear in a low getting closer tone:"Or maybe I'm right behind you...">behind(Ordered from left to right)>far left>2nd from left>3rd from left>4th from left>4th from right>3rd from right>2nd from right>far right>write in

>>2300463I love itI am liking this "battle", a lot.>>2300471>>far left>I knew punching him was a good idea.ThisIn fact, I think we should punch him again.
>>2300471>>2300505>>2300509You quickly notice that only one of the copies has a bloody nose and you grab him by the collar."Haha fool the real one is-"And punch him againThree Salamites come out from behind and surround him.The mercs and your 3 companions close in, apparently free of any illusions/snares the mage placed"Stop! Let me go! I've technically done nothing wrong! I was just defending myself with nonlethal magic!">punch him>kill him>gag and tie him>"Nothing wrong!? You're a liaison for whoever is behind the kidnappings AND you made the mercenaries invisible so they could perform the kidnappings">"You will answer my questions or else">write in
>>2300521>>"Nothing wrong!? You're a liaison for whoever is behind the kidnappings AND you made the mercenaries invisible so they could perform the kidnappings">tie him up but don't gag him
>>2300521>Gag and tie him.I think we need to make sure the mercs are accounted for.
>>2300533Are we going to beat up the mercs too?
>>2300541Depends on what they say.
>>2300544I'm thinking we leave him ungagged so if the mercs try to lie to us, the mage would call them out.
>>2300521>Salamites never stop being cute badasses>>2300526>>>"Nothing wrong!? You're a liaison for whoever is behind the kidnappings AND you made the mercenaries invisible so they could perform the kidnappings">>tie him up but don't gag himThis is good.>>2300533>I think we need to make sure the mercs are accounted for.Definitely.Gagging a spell caster is a good idea, but...>>2300553>I'm thinking we leave him ungagged so if the mercs try to lie to us, the mage would call them out.At the very least, he seems like he might be fool enough to tell us more than he should this way.Let's interrogate the mercs and the mage.
>>2300553Nonesense, he can start casting magic if we need to turn on the mercs or make himself invisible or something. Why would he reveal the rogues lies anyway? He probably hates us more then he hates the mercs.
>>2300571It looks like he needs to move to cast his spells.>He raises his hands to cast a spell >The mage pulls out a wand and flicks it
>>2300573Misdirection, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ he is an illusionist after all. Besides if we interrogate them together they can get their story str8. If you cross examine them they cant.
>>2300588All this thinking is making my head hurt.Clobbering everyone would've been an easy solution
>>2300573>It looks like he needs to move to cast his spells.Yeah.>>2300588>Misdirection, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ he is an illusionist after all....fair point.To gag or not to gag, this is the question.I say we gag him, but leave it possible to ungag him easily for questions or if he seems like he has something to say.If he starts getting all mumbo jumbo like, then we pop him one and the gag goes back in.
>>2300625Where's a decent ballgag merchant when you need one?
>>2300625Yeah, put a guy on him

Unthinkable">"Who is this mage?""Just a middle man, he delivers payments and collects the captives. He also makes us invisible so we can conduct our hunt more easily">"Why did you abduct all those villagers?""The mage here is part of some dark wizard enclave. They pay us to send them live adults">"Where did you send the prisoners?"he points to the mage still tied up at the tree"He takes them, don't know where.

But I want those 500 Talons in advance right now">"Tell me more about this dark wizard enclave">write in
>>2300710>>"That's enough questions, surrender or die"Reeps are actually super cute.Looks like we won't be getting that 700 talons that easily. I doubt we can storm a dark wizard enclave.
