Ongoing Games (In-Character)Play-by-post games are going on in this forum as we speak (well, read). All threads on this board are actual games, so please, only post on a thread if you are a player of that game.
The group moves into the next room, with Taribo and Fredric attempting to find clues as to the origin and intent of the dungeon. The walls seem to just be worked stone with mortar between slabs and boulders. The surfaces are very smooth and strong. No clue as to how or why these walls are here can be found though.
After getting about 25' into the room, Elia hears a soft coughing noise coming from the darkness to the east.
Elia moves towards the sound, and the party falls in behind him. He halts when he spies 3 orcs sitting on the ground in a corner. Their weapons are on the ground next to them. The one in the corner coughs again.
Note that currently Kulkav and Fredric cannot see the orcs.
"We might, but it would only be to miss a golden opportunity on both our parts..."
He pauses meaningfully.
"The garrison defending Kerthac (the nearest town) has recently been sent on maneuvers to deal with pirates and raiders that have been assaulting the northern villages, leaving Kerthac ripe for the picking... My associates and I," he gestures to the rest of the party,"Are too few to loot the town properly, and so came seeking your clan with hopes that an arrangement might be reached."
He chuckles slightly,
"I might note, that trade in Kerthac has been booming of late... The calf is fatted and ripe for the slaughter."
Elia slaps his forehead hearing this complicated lie that makes a lot of assumptions about the Orcs who are apparently color-coded to be Evil, part of a clan, murderers and thieves according to Fredric. He weeps a small tear as he is flooded with memories of being assumed a scoundrel before having had a chance to prove it.
Its a flask of acid. If he doesn't catch it, it will shatter against him, dealing 1d6 acid damage to him, and 1 splash damage to each the orcs next to him... (It's a fragile flask, it might break anyway...)
Here's a touch attack roll if you need it.
And damage if it breaks:
If he drinks it, as I hope, I'll leave those details to you :-)
