Hrmm. I don't recall you ever mentioning a priest or a hob god before (and I don't know the deities, no list available in the SRD). I'm feeling a bit rooked, but I guess this provides a safety net in case the right questions aren't asked the first time. Besides, this is a good reminder that we need the Fight Night money bad, so we'll just have to move along the Jeriah fight without her. Hopefully Riz is willing to participate with Creature, we'll see.
That's the Khan, always facilitating. I assume no other progress on the search. By the by, I think I could use a scroll of Sending if you fellows could get me one; that way if I happen to find out the location of our quarry, I can let the Khan know to get the warm greeting prepared as soon as hobgoblinly possible.
You might have. Could just be on me for posting from a phone and thus not paying attention to anything beyond the bare necessities. Like I said, ought to be handy anyhow. Takes the pressure off of the first Commune. And if I can't get this figured out in 25 questions then Wilstaff is probably going to just give up and embrace the imminent demise of the city.
Also, how do you figure the CR for PCs? Is it just equal to their level or something? And since my win against Fillian is kinda by DQ, I think I'm going to just give out half XP for it. Much as I need the stuff, it wasn't a real victory. Just something born of necessity to finish out the stupid tournament so I can get the lucre for it and then open up registration for a third one that might finally, finally allow people to have actual PvP matches that don't involve Wilstaff.
Wilstaff then walks off once more to the Arena from the Clan HQ.
Anyone solve the unsolvable case yet? For that matter, any news from the patrols? Certainly the crime in the rest of the slums hasn't taken a holiday since this one maniac started gutting hobs.
CR = CL if pc classes. That's what we've been using in AVB.
"It was, but he was not a high-ranking officer. He was just some grunt. The body of a fourth officer was found dead last night, but it was a completely different attack. We're tracking down the ratling that did it. Should be ready for you to execute by tonight."
A footsoldier? Why would he do that? Were these four friends or anything? Clearly his motivation is not to weaken us as we initially considered, or he wouldn't have made his second target a cannon fodder sort. Now that we have all the identities, focus all your efforts on finding any connection between them, no matter how tenuous. Odds are whatever they have in common others will as well, and then we can predict where this guy will strike next.
The frenzied hob falters a moment, and sits down at his desk.
This...this is just getting to be too much. I can't let you down, can't let the Clan down, can't let the slums down, and all of it hinges on finding someone who can't be found, hunting something supernatural in its own domain, and then fighting that thing that even in a weakened state was able to slaughter several hobs during the skulk raid almost as an afterthought. Just give me a minute.
He sits, head in his hands, in silence. After a short time he rises and looks to his Watchmen.
All right, I think I've got a handle on this. Bennett and I are off to commune with the goblinny god. Thank you all for your hard work on this case. And really, in general. You are the heart of this city, pumping the lifeblood of justice into the streets.
