    Sirin Starshine

    Sirin murmurs, "How totally weird."

    She glances up and makes brief eye contact with everyone, looking slightly worried, then she gently plucks at the patch that looks like a set of lockpicks.

    The patch peels easily off of the veil, and dangles from Sirin's fingers.

    Then, after about five seconds, it starts to grow and fill out... The young rogue has to shift her fingers quickly to avoid dropping the now full-sized and normal-looking set of lockpicking tools.

    Sirin Starshine


    Sirin cringes and grabs at the lockpicks before they can crash to the floor and make a metallic sound.

    Then she beams and plucks at the patch representing the dagger. She lays it on the floor. While waiting for the dagger to appear, Sirin begins to work at unlocking the manacles and chain that bind her.

    As she works, she speaks in a distracted tone of voice.

    "We have a patron. Powerful. He wants us free, all of us, and go to him. I have directions."

    "We are allowed to make a mess escaping, but if we do, we might get caught, so I suggest stealth."

    "To succeed, we have to work together. Plus he'll be displeased if we don't. Punishment."

    "Any objections?"

    Take 10 on Perception to make sure that the manacle does not have a trap.

    If no trap is Perceived, Disable Device.

    Since Disable Device for unlocking locks can be tried multiple times, I am rolling three times to save on posts.

    Disable Device, first try: (1d20+8)[11]

    Disable Device, second try: (1d20+8)[20]

    Disable Device, third try: (1d20+8)[26]

    Sirin's normal bonus to Perception is +11. To Disable Device, +7.

    Due to Rogue trapfinding, extra +1 to both those checks, for a total of +12 and +8, respectively.

    If the lockpicks happen to be masterwork, there is an extra +2 bonus to Disable Device using them.

    You find no traps. You also figure it'll take a DC 20 to get the locks off. They are indeed masterworked.

    The locks ARE rather rusty and a bit noisy. Every time you roll and get a total disable device of under 15, there's a chance you'll make some noise. I'll handle the rolls for that.


    The lockpicks twist in the locks, and before a couple of fumbles, Sirin's got her manacles open and off.

    Sirin Starshine


    Sirin stuffs the veil into her rags and picks up the dagger (assuming it grew from the patch as she expected it to).

    Ignoring the terrible itch she'd been aching to scratch on the skin underneath her manacles, she stands up and goes to Nana Jodi and begins to unlock the gnome woman's manacles.

    Even though her own manacles had been untrapped, Sirin takes care to inspect Jodi's manacles for traps, too, just in case. After all, Jodi could cast spells.

    Still sounding distracted, she asks, "Can anyone use a sling? It and the dagger may be the only weapons in this thing. But I'm not sure it's got any sling bullets."

    "What about magic?"


    She curses under her breath and complains, "These manacles are incredibly rusty."

    Perception and Disable Device

    If the lockpicks are masterwork, that would raise Sirin's Disable Device bonus to +10.

    In that case, take 10 with both Perception and Disable Device to check for traps and to open the manacles of everyone, in the following order:

    Jodi
    Bridget
    Variel
    Silas
    Marthras

    Jodiah, gives an odd smile and gingerly plucks the odd assortment of spheres and wires. She places it in the palm of her hand, waiting for it to enlarge, she doubts anyone had knowledge of what it was or who it represented but that was no matter at the very least it would allow her to keep herself alive until she could grab a few components for more offensive spells. She looks at the half elf struggling with her bonds "Keep trying deary, you can do it just keep calm and take your time! Remember good things to all those who wait and once we are free we can slit the throats of those guards and dance with joy while their blood spurts!" She adds a warm smile at the end of the statement and as she speaks she moves her hands in an odd pattern.

    Sirin was so focused on unlocking Jodi's manacles that she didn't notice the oracle plucking out the veil.

    She exclaims, "He...." then, fearful of alerting the guards, chokes back the shout of outrage.

    Then the weird little bauble grows on Jodi's palm. "Oh. What's that?"

    Not waiting for the answer, she goes back to examining and picking the lock.

    Sirin looks confused at what Jodi says. Looking strangely at her, Sirin moves to her manacles and puts them on loosely, but does not snap them closed to re-engage the lock, so she can slip out of them easily.

    Then she makes her precious possessions disappear: lockpicks, dagger, and veil.

    Then she closes her eyes and pretends to be asleep if the guard should look inside.

    If she can't make them disappear (too large, not enough time, etc.), she just sits on them.

    "What?" Bridget demands when Sirin pulls the lockpicks off the veil. Her facial expression changes from one of resentment to a blank stare as Sirin's manacles pop off.

    The explanation clearly pleases Bridget. As Sirin comes to unlock her manacles, a look of purpose can be seen in her eyes. The feelings of hopelessness and resentment fade, replaced by malicious intent. Not powerless anymore.

    When freed, she smiles warmly at Sirin. "Well done girl. Hand me that trinket of yours wouldn't you, if it comes with the right spell components I'll be able to make it so we get out of here completely undetected."

    Is the sparkly bag a spell component pouch? If yes, can Bridget grab it while Sirin unlocks the others? She'd like to ready a sleep spell for if they're discovered.

    When Nana Jodi warns her of approaching guards, she returns to her previous position, back turned to the other forsaken and the door to the cell. With the manacles placed loosely around her wrists and her knees curled up to her chest, she conceals her freedom with her rags.

    ooc: Sorry for the delay! I spent nearly half an hour trying to figure out the dice roller. It turns out if you do a preview of a dice roll in your post, the code gets messed up.

    Silas smiles at the sudden turn of fortune. "We shouldn't act now. We need to wait until dark to make sure we're less noticeable." He moves to the corner and tries to keep his hands hidden. "Also, don't throw away those manacles when we leave. They can be worth a tidy sum to the right buyer."

    Once he notices the veil Marthras gets even more pondering. Escape? Hmm. You know, even a few hours back I wouldn't have hesitated to report you to the guards. But maybe this is a chance, my last chance to show them how wrong they are in everything...
    His voice trails of but after short moment he seems to regain some of his posture.
    Yes, yes. This is something I should have done long ago.

    After his shackles are opened he points at the holy symbol of Mitra and asks Sirin: Would you mind giving me that? .

    Should Sirin give it to him and if it looks easily broken (and if he thinks that wouldn't be to loud) Marthras would try to break it in two.

    Once the guards approach he also trys to hide any signs of escape and look as unremarkable as possible.

    The guard shows up, unhurried, and glances at the cell as he walks by. Guy looks bored.

    He passes by, and the pad of his boots echoes down the hall. If he follows the regular routine, he'll be back by here again in a few minutes, going the other way. Then things will be relatively clear for half an hour or so, when it SHOULD be about time for the lateday meal.

    Marthas easily manages to mar the holy symbol, scarring it.

    Bridget DOES indeed find the pouch patch to be a spell component pouch... A rather overstocked one, containing things that look to be useful to a divine caster, as well.

    Sirin takes off her manacle, takes up her items (veil, thieves' tools and dagger), rises, and begins to examine the lock to the cell for traps.

    Speaking in a low voice, but still sounding excited, Sirin speaks, "Let us plan our escape. I suggest stealth and minimal murder. Get to the roof and use the rope patch to climb down. That way we avoid most or all of the guards."

    "What do you think?"

    Jodiah thinks for a moment, she didn't have much memory of the layout of this place since she couldn't exactly see through the thick sac they put over her head. "That is one way to go about it dear but remember, we can via sea so unless you all can swim things may get a little...soggy. I suggest that we have a contingency, were any of you in the military? If so would you be able to tell between guard ranks, using a high ranking officer as a hostage may be needed if things do not go well."

    "Do you know how to get to the roof? Do you know how to get to the shore? Where did they take you during when you were visited? What we need is a hostage. Get that gate open and I can make sure that guard never finishes his patrol." The smirk she wears makes it clear her self-confidence is back in force.

    She turns to Jodi, "I take it you know how to use that trinket of yours. Any other spellcasters take what you need from this pouch; it seems our mysterious patron was most accommodating."

    Jodiah frowns Brigit "Yes child I know how to use this but you should be aware that taking a hostage right from the get go is a very bad idea. It immediately escalates the situation and if we don't get a suitably important hostage then it is a moot point, they will shoot them down with the rest of us. Stealth would be the best option and taking a hostage as a last resort but it would have to be done all in one shot. For scouting is not an option either, it would take too much time to do so for the person scouting would have to unlock doors then relock them on their way back or else the ruse is pointless. Secondly they have no means of keeping track of time so they may not make it back in time and the alarm would be raised immediately. We will have to do this blindly and in one go or else it will not work for delaying will be the death of us. I can trick a few guards here and there to make us getting past them easier."

    Jodiah rolls her eyes "Oh yes because now is the perfect time for an inquisition, you seem to forget we are limited in our time, lack the proper tools and also have no means of silencing the guard if he tries to sound the alarm. You see most of these goody goody types love being a martyr, the seem to have some deluded notion that gods like that sort of thing. We do not have time to interrogate and that in itself is risky for why would they bother giving us the information when they could easily raise the alarm via shouting. Let's just break out of the cell and move out quietly, jumping guards here and there and if we happen across a set of keys we could release other prisoners to use as a distraction. Sitting here and waiting is usually a bad idea and taking even more time to interrogate is a worse idea."

    Sirin nods, agreeing with those who argue against interrogation without turning from examining and working on the door lock.

    "We don't have enough time to conduct a useful interrogation."

    "If they can open their mouths to answer our questions, they can also open their mouths to scream for help."

    "I believe we should just sneak our way out, on our own. And maybe ambushing any lone guards we find, for armor and weapons. And clothes."

Putting them to sleep great idea now we have someone to drag around behind us or wait for them to wake up. Gagging them is counter productive and once the gag is off it would be very easy for them to shout; further more you are forgetting one massive flaw in the entire plan: your magic may fail and you're assuming that the guard will be more afraid of you than their superiors. Everything else you blathered about is a rehash of what we've been saying. Your follish notion that you can successful interogate a guard will squander what advantage we have: surprise." Turning to the half elf "Miss would you be so kind to open the door, I think we should be leaving, though this one would prefer staying."
