START OF SESSION
Backstory: A dozen people have gone missing, last seen in the company of dark robes figures. You have a trailed a few of those figures to this location.
Before you you large stone structure with a single entryway
Marching Order: Oskar, Franken, Louis the Pious, Kai
You walk northwards into the complex and find yourselves in a small room. Aside from the entryway you used now to the south of you there is a single wooden door to the north from the bottom of which light can be seen. The floor is slick here with what appears to be blood and against the eastern wall a large
bloodstain drips down slowly.
Room is roughly 20' tall by 30' wide
As you approach the bloodstains you can tell that they are fresh
On the eastern wall it seems as if someone's head was bashed inot the wall
You peer closley and it looks like something was dragged away from the easternwall towards the door
Oskar - I dip my hand into the largest bloodstain just in case there's something to find
The blood is lukewarm to the touch and largely cooagulated it stains your hand
Kai - Before we move I listen if we can hear anything behind the door
You listen at the door and you hear what appears to be the faint snoring of a person coming from past the door
Franken - I gently open the door enough to peer into.
You push the door open and it loudly creeks
You see a massive stone hall. There are three wooden doors here as well as two other exits. There are two doors are on the southern wall and one on the western wall. The room is filled with 5 pairs of pews and a single elevated podium. A dozen candles flicker and near the podium on a pew a figure in black
He has not noticed the creeking door
The other door on the southern wall is in the SW corner
The NE corner has an entryway and the Esatern wall in the middle has an entryway
Louis the Pious - I check to see where the tracks of blood lead
There are some faint drag marks towards the southwestern door, there are no blood stains
Louis the Pious - I take BV's torch from him first
Franken - I sneak up to tie up the dude, BUT I don't have my rope out until I'm close, AND I want to get a good look at it's face if possible before doing so.
Before you is a hungry and gaunt looking figure in black robes. They hold a dagger in their belt, and a few inches higher on their left arm you can see a brand of a monstrous skull burnt into their flesh. below their close cropped hair are closed eyes
Louis the Pious - I disaprove of the use of branded icons, as they are degenerate
Franken - I tie up the guy.
Louis the Pious - "Tattoos are impure" I mutter under my breath
He slowly awakens, but as he blinks his eyes you have hog tied him
He goes to shout
He shouts "Whaaaaaghga"
Franken - I use the shaft of my staff and caress his teeth meat to gag him.
Louis the Pious - My eyes slightly widen at these displays of degeneracy
The man is tied up and you are shoving your staff into his mouth
Franken - I take the dagger off of his inventory and bring it to his throat. "Woah now you silly boy, let's not do all that screaming. I just wanna talk."
The figure wimpers and gags on the wood lodged deep in his throat
He appears to be choking
Oskar - "It's the third time he's done this this week"
Franken - I gently begin to pull the staff out of his mouth as I tell him, "No screaming now, just words. Understand?"
He hacks and coughs, as he lays on the ground in the fetal position. tears running down his face
Louis the Pious - I wonder if I should cook him some eggs before deciding against it
Franken - I caress his shoulder and shush the tears a little before beginning to talk with him.
Kai - I walk closer to the two, just in case @Franken urges get out of hand again
Oskar - I listen out for signs other cultists may be investigating the shout the cultist made prior to being molested by a staff
Franken - "Sorry things got out of hand there a little, but I was just wondering. By any chance, do happen to know why there are puddles of blood outside the doorway."
He cry-sobs an answer "Why are you doing this to me..."
"What's going on?"
"What blood stains?"
Louis the Pious - I approach with Kai, leaving Oskar to watch the reaer
Franken - "It's not like I think you're a...murderer...or anything, but you can't take any chances. Why are you even here?"
"I serve Master Whitehead here"
"He took me in when he found me dying on the roads"
Franken - "Master Whitehead?"
"He taught me I had purpouse"
Kai - "And what do you mean by 'serve'?"
Franken - "Your purpose is to help me right now." "Whoever Master Whitehead is may very well be in trouble, so, if you've seen anyone come through the doors,please tell me."
"I help him work his magics and rituals. He's the one who venerates Kull Varld and teaches of him to us."
"I've just been sleeping here for a while"
Louis the Pious - I ask him when the last time he ate or had a proper sleep was
"We sometimes have people who wish to be sacrificed for the glory of Kull Valrd come here"
"I eat good here. lots of cheese and porridge"
"Usually I sleep in my bed, but the others keep bullying me so I took a nap here"
Franken - What is this Kull Valrd?
Referee - "He is the deity we venerate here"
Franken - Is he tangible.
Louis the Pious - (I cock an eye at his gaunt figure but nod sympatheticly at the mention of bullies)
"He Who Breaches the Blacked Gates"
he continues to cry
he asks "can you please not do that to me again?"
Franken - I shush him as I give his shoulders a slight rub. "No tears now."
Louis the Pious - "that's not helping!"
Franken - "It's helping ME." "So, buddy, how many bullies do you have. Rough estimate. In fact, how many guys make up your peers?"
"Like over a dozen"
Louis the Pious - I brush FrankenBV aside and whip out the bottle of alchohol. I pour a tiny, tiny amount for him
"Sometimes they leave and go on missions"
Franken - (FUCK)
"Ew what is this alcohol?"
Louis the Pious - "Here, my child, this will calm your nerves."
"Thats what the degenerates drink"
Louis the Pious - I shrug and pour it back in. More for me, yo
"They poison themselves with drink and poison their minds with writ"
Franken - "Okay then. Well, this is a little awkward. I thought that you were a killer...but maybe you secretly are...but probably not." I eye him for anything suspicious aside from the knife I already took.
Kai - "He could still be a killer. Don't be so fast with believing the first sob story he tells"
Louis the Pious - "You're not a killer, are you my child?"
"Life forces us all to do awful things"
Kai - "We should search him. But this time with Frankentsun at the other side of the room."
Louis the Pious - "Awful things? Like kidnapping innocent villagers from the nearby hamlet of what was formerly known as Dicksburg?"
Franken - Fiiine
Louis the Pious - "--I mean, Skyferla?"
Oskar - "Definitely a shining member of the Holy mateyboys here, no doubt about that."
Louis the Pious - "Please, I can tell you have a good heart. You don't kidnap people, do you, my child?"
"I mainly clean the floors here"
"And move the corpses into the charnel pit"
Kai - "You did a terrible job in the previous room"
Franken - I viciously hold back my snickers in the corner
Oskar - "Sleeping on the job? Tsk tsk."
Louis the Pious - "Well, if you didn't kidnap the villagers, who here would have, and where could we find the,?"
He continues confused sobbing "I dunno" "I just clean the rooms and mvoe the bodies"
Louis the Pious - "Tell us, and we won't tell your manager you were sleeping on the job!"
Kai - "He just talked about human sacrifices and moving corpses! Of course he's behind the kidnapping!"
He's just crying now
Louis the Pious - "This is us doing you a favor, son! Please"
like full on baby crying
Franken - I come back into the scene to use my Charisma to sooth his soul with head pats and good vibes
He visibly recoils from your advance
Kai - I put my spear (the sharp one, not the one in my trousers) to his throat. "Enough crying. Tell us what's behind these doors and where the villagers are."
Franken - I polish my borrowed staff in anticipation
"West are some chambers where rituals are worked, I think the door to the south is locked and has sacrifices waiting there, to the north are more ritual rooms, to the east is the charnel pit and where I sleep"
"Let me go please"
"I didn't deserve this
"I just wanna go home"
Louis the Pious - "Is this not your home, child? Where is home for you?"
Kai - "You're part of a murderous cult, kid. Aren't you supposed to embrace death?"
Oskar - "Yeah, yeah but are there any defenses here we should know about?"
"I'm from hringepi"
Oskar - "Booby traps or uh, y'know..."
As you all stand around the crying man you hear footsteps you turn and from the northern hallway three figures emerge
Oskar - "HEY HAVE YOU ASSHOLES BEEN BULLYING THIS PATHETIC EXCUSE FOR MAN?"
Two pinpoints of light fill the empty sockets of the skeletal figrue here. There is no flesh here only bone. A rusted blade is held tight in a single hand it's gaze unyielding and furious. behind it are two men in black robes. They hold a dagger in their left hand, and a few inches higher you can see a brand of a monstrous skull burnt into their flesh. Below their close cropped hair are the eyes of a fanatic, bloodshot and crazed.
Kai - I keep my spear close the the man's neck, silently threatening the new arrivals not to do any stupid
Franken - The antibully rangers are here to save the day.
The two men in black robes pause for a moment while the skeleton does not seem to notice
Louis the Pious - I move to plea with the two guys, not skeletal
Oskar - I ready my shield as the plea seems to have gone poorly
Louis the Pious - "I notch one of my 10 arrows and fire it at Mr Skeletal
Your arrow flies through his ribcage ineffectively
Oskar - I close in on the skeleton to take their attention and attempt to pierce its skull with my spear
Kai - I kick the tied up man to the ground and join Oskar in his attack on the skeleton, attempting to pierce its chest with my spear
The tied up man cries out in a whimper
Oskar you strike the skelton through an eye socket, cracking it open and destroying his orbital bones.
Kai you stabbed a man in black robes through the skeleton's sternum
The man screams as your spear enters his chest cavity and as it retracts red blood gushes out
He collapses to the ground while the skeleton still stands, now covered in blood with only one pin point of azure light.
The other black robed figure's face drains of color and fear is clearly visible in his eyes. he is clearly shocked at this companions death
Franken - I tell the man pointing my polished up staff, "Put down your weapon, and stay quiet."
He drops his dagger and sprints off into the northern hallway
You hear his feet stomp agaisnt the stones
The skeleton swings its sword at the face of Oskar
Oskar dips below the skeleton's blade and nimbly dodges the blow
Oskar - I attempt to decapitate the skeleton, really wishing that my good chopping axe had been on my belt
Kai - I attempt to trust my spear in the remaining eye socket of the skeleton
You completely pulverize the skeleton's skull with a series of jabs from your spear
Franken - I tear off a piece of my fabric to gag the guy and drag him along as we approach the door. I also cut off the excess rope. Ooh OOH! AND I pick up the dagger that guy dropped earlier.
The door is locked
Kai - I look at our new hostage "You've got the keys for this door? Better tell us now if you don't want to end up like your friend back there."
He frowns and shakes his head
Kai - I walk back to the corpse of the other robed figure and search him for keys or anything else of worth
On the skeleton you find nothing, on the corpse of the black robed figure you find a small pocket with 4 silver coins The black robe figure who was slain also has a knife
Louis the Pious - I grab that knife for good luck, and so I have a 1 handed weapon
Kai - I look at my other three party members and toss one coin to Oskar and Louis. Then I turn to Franken" You'll get your share after we're done here and if you managed to contain your... urges properly."
Franken - Fiiine
Oskar - I attempt to break down the door in all of my manlety glory, gesturing for Kai to join me.
You hear footsteps from the northern hallway
Four figures emerge
Each clad in black robes holding a dagger, one of them a familiar face
He shouts and points "YOU"
Oskar - "Hey guys, how's it going?"
Louis the Pious - I drop the torch and prepare to notch my bow. "Bullies shall find no salvation!"
Franken - I bring the knife to the man's neck and tell the others PUT DOWN THE FUCKING WEAPONS OR THE BOY GET IT! in a very loud wisper.
Louis the Pious - I fire my bow
You arrow flies high and hits no-one
Kai - "This is what you get if you put Frankentsun in charge of dealing with one enemy"
Oskar - "Well, can't win them all." I attempt to shield bash the one cultist in the new group that's a familiar face out of frustration
Kai - I jump forward and thrust my spear towards the chest of one of the unknown faces in the newly arrived group
Oskar swings their sheild but does not clobber anyone. Kai leaps forward and shoves his spear into the chest of one the men in black robes
blood spurts from his mouth as darkness covers his eyes and he falls dead
his corpse twitches a few times
Franken - I push the hostage to the ground and attempt to attack the familiar man with a swing from my staff, one handing that bitch to ensure I still have my shield.
Your swing goes wild and over his head
The familiar face in black robes says "we must fall back and inform whitehead"
The remaining trio retreats swiftly into the northern hallway
Louis the Pious - I swap my Alchohol with my knife so that i have easier access to it
Kai - I look at my three party members and shake my head. "They're wearing the most obvious black robes, they're not that hard to hit."
Franken - THEY BLEND WITH THE DARK LIKE NINJAS
Louis the Pious - I pick up the torch, speaking of which. Has it gone out?
Kai -I bend down to towards the corpse of the man I killed and search through his belongings
You find three silver coins and a dagger
Oskar - I take the dagger from the dead man and shove it in my pack
Louis the Pious - "Tell us about this master whitehad, my child. what can we expect from him?
He has a bleached face and weilds potent magics
he can make corpses rise and serve him
Franken - "Guide us to Master Whitehead."
Kai - I give Oskar an annoyed look for taking the dagger before pocketing the three silver coins for myself
I don't know where he is, but I know where his room is
Louis the Pious - "we must deal with these corpses -- who here has the strngth neccesary?"
Franken - I begin decapitating the nearest corpse.
The corpses are now headless and blood has spread everywhere
Louis the Pious - I say some prayers or whatever time is of the essence
Oskar - I try to open the door to the west, dreading whatever may appear
You find a hallway which goes 10' west then turns north, it continues 30' north and forks east and west.
To the west is a door 10' away and the hallway continues to the east past the torch light
Kai - I look at the hostage "what's at the end of each hallway?"
"I don't know"
Franken - "What's behind the door boi"
"I'm not supposed to muck around these parts"
Franken - Well, you're not supposed to be tied up either, but we're being adventurous. Now what's behind the fucking door kid.
Kai - "Useless." I look at Frankentsun, "Why are you carrying this deadweight around still?"
"I DONT KNOW ASSHOLE"
"WHATS YOUR BIG DEAL"
"WHY ARE YOU SO MEAN"
Louis the Pious - "Whoa, kid!"
"I HOPE YOUR DICK ROTS OFF"
"I HOPE YOUR SISTER GETS FUCKED BY A HORSE"
Louis the Pious - "I can see why this shmuck gets bullied, Wow"
Franken - Y I K E S
Kai - "Can you shut him up before he brings even more people? Or do I have to shut him up?"
"I HOPE YOUR MOTHER FUCKS YOUR UNCLE IN FRONT OF YOUR FATHER"
Oskar - "If I give you a ration will you stop whining you cheerless git?"
Oskar - "Promise? On your God or whatever."
"Yes, I'll promise i'll shut up"
You can't tell his motives
Kai - "Why are you even considering giving your rations to an insane cultist exactly?"
Louis the Pious - "Because he is a lost child, as we all are" "We must give mercy where we can"
Franken - I still have the gag from earlier. I could pop that back in if needed.
Kai - "He's lost in the head alright"
He spits at you (Franken) once you say that
Oskar - "What do they say - you catch more flies with honey than vinegar?"
Franken - I punch him in the face as hard as possible.
Louis the Pious - "Let he who has not been bullied leave the bullied to their fate. We cannot ignore him"
He yelps like a kicked dog
Louis the Pious - "Whoa, FrankenTsun, what the hey?"
Oskar - "And at least I didn't fuck his mouth with a staff for a few minutes..."
Kai - "The only thing we've caught so far is more of his friends every time he's wasting our time or shouting bloody murder."
Franken - I re-gag the kid.
Oskar - "I just pity him." "Poor bastard."
He tries to bite you but you succesfully gag him
Kai - "He's part of a cult who sacrifices innocent villagers. Save your pity for them."
Louis the Pious -"He was once an innocent. We have a duty to save him as well. We may leave him behind, but I shall not kill him"
Kai - "Don't worry, I'll gladly relieve you of that burden"
Franken - Everyone's an innocent until they live long enough to get fucking murdered.
Oskar - "Yeah people die when they're killed, we know the deal."
Muffled "But if i die I won't be eaten by the worms, there is a special place for me"
Kai - "Just say the word, kid"
Oskar - "Oh good. Fanatics with a death wish. Go on, monologue for me."
Franken - I gently ceep open the door to take a peeksie.
He tries to yell throught the gag
Kai - "No, don't. We need to hurry on before more of his friends show up. Again."
The door is Locked
Muffled “The Herald shall be unleashed”
Muffled “Oh how the sun will fall from the sky”
Muffled “We breach again the blacked gates”
Kai - I roll my eyes and plunge my spear in his throat
Muffled "GRANT US TOT-" he dies
Oskar - "Nothing personnel, kid."
Louis the Pious - I make whatever blessings I can for the poor soul
Franken - I try to resalvage the rope.
Kai - "Now, can we finally move on?"
Louis the Pious - "Shush, you are in a better place, my child, far from us" I cast Kai a dirty look but move on
Franken - I also decap him because I know I should.
Franken - ...How much inventory slots does a human skull take up.
Oskar - "Yeah might as well." I grab his head and stash it in my pack.
Franken - I stash the guys head.
Each head takes up 1 slot of inventory
Kai - Now that he's no longer bound I search his body again in case he had any other useful stuff on him
Two silver coins
Louis the Pious - I snatch thoise away from him. And put them in my special donations pouch. With another dirty look
Oskar - "Oh here we go, alms for the church." "That go to more booze.'
Louis the Pious - "It is the least the poor soul deserves. Now, shall we move on?"
Kai - I look at Louis "What contribution in this excursion did you bring that would make you eligible for those silver pieces?"
Franken - Guys, stop fighting over money. There will be plenty of cash if we do our job.
Louis the Pious - I bring a consceince, which is just as well, as none of the rest of you have it
Kai - "Ah. I'm sorry, I only remember all the wide-flying arrows"
Louis the Pious - I open my mouth to reply but cclose it again after a second
Franken - Guys! Stop this roast session. We need to get back to the hostages!
Kai - "Right, do your lockpicking thing"
The Lock Fails to Open
Kai - "Somehow I'm not surprised by this turn of events"
Oskar - Hoping for better luck than next time, I wave Kai over to the door.
Franken - (FrankenTsun will remember this)
Kai - "Let the real men do the work" "Or not."
Oskar - "My bad, couldn't reach the handle."
Louis the Pious - I keep the torch but arm myself with a dagger, just in case
As you walk further into the hallway four figures emerge from a door. The one at the very front is a skeleton and the three others are men in black robes
The hallway continues for another like 50' east It meets another hallway which heads north at their intersection is a door to the north
Oskar - I raise my shield and spear aloft and charge into the new pack of enemies, aiming for the closest cultist in black.
Louis the Pious - FrankenTsun takes the torch from me. I notch one of my remaining 8 arrows
Kai - I run behind Oskar's small frame, my spear over his head aimed for the second closest cultist
Louis the Pious - I fire an arrow
Oskar plunges his spear into the throat if a cultist spraying blood everywhere
Kai stabs through the spray of blood and wounds a cultist in the shoulder
The arrow goes wild Hitting non of the figrues assembeled in a striaght line in front of him
Kai - I watch the arrow go wild and roll my eyes "It's the ones in black, Louis!"
The cultists scream at the loss of one fo their own
"FOR KULL VARLD"
"BURST FORTH THE BLACK GATES"
"ANOINT OUR DEATH WITH THE BREAKING OF RIBS AND TRAMPLING OF THE DEAD"
Oskar - "Yeah, yeah we heard that like 5 minutes ago."
Kai - "Here they go again"
A cultist lunges and stabs at you, while his companion uses this distratcion to strike at you as well.
You are cut across the cheek but avoid an actual telling blow
Kai - I make sure to duck low, just in case any of the cultist's blow go over Oskar's very low head
Oskar - "ow, motherfucker”
They meance and scream yet again
Kai - "You're lucky, Oskar. Would have nicked the private parts of men of normal size"
Oskar - "Good for crawling up skirts man,"
You block both blows with your shield
Oskar - I attack the next closest cultist, angry that he almost shaved my beautiful unkempt face.
Kai - I repeat the same tactic as before, thrusting my spear over Oskar's head, aiming for the cultist behind the one Oskar aims for
In your rage you stab at where the man is not
Kai moves in close and stabs the cultist through the neck, again spending blood flying he too falls down dead
Louis the Pious - I take a good long hard look at my bow I indeed notch another arrow
Kai - "While you're supposed to learn from others, learning from Louis doesn't count, Oskar."
Franken - "do it" I whisper in his ear
Louis the Pious - And fire one of my remaining 7 arrows
Oskar - "but my fAaaaaaace”
Kai - "Don't worry, most people will look over it anyway"
You arrow flies and pins his skull to the stone wall behind him his body hangs lifelessly from the head
Franken - Good job Louis! I knew you could do it.
Louis the Pious - I look at Kai's head not two inches away from where I was aiming
Oskar - "Eye level with tiddies mate, can't complain."
Franken - It just took a couple tries.
Kai - I glance behind me with wide-eyes. "Were you aiming for their feet this time?"
Oskar - I offer Louis a crisp thumbs up.
Louis the Pious - I decide not to say anything, but take the torh back from FrankenTsu, I give a weak little thumbs up
The remaining skeleton launches itself at Oskar
The skeleton slips past your shield and strikes at thee
Oskar, You are stabbed in the shoulder and while it hurts it does not limit your fighting prowess to greatly
Kai - I aim my spear for one of the skeleton's eyes and thrust it forwards with a shout
Oskar - I swing to take the skeleton's legs off at the knee
Louis the Pious - I sit back, satisfied in the knowledge of a job well done
Your spear penetrates the skull of the skeleton shattering it the pinpoints of light go out its skeletal body falls lifeless to the floor
Franken - I try to push through the others as I announce, "Dibs on decapitatin'!"
Kai - "There we go. Good job on the defence, Oskar. Only had to duck once."
Oskar - "Well at least I'm not dead like those poor bastards, eh?”
Franken - I begin hacking up skulls.
You dismember the bodies and blood fills the floor here
Kai - While Frankentsun happily dismembers the bodies I bend down to loot their corpses
Franken - So that's 2 more skulls, right.
Louis the Pious - I restock my arrows with a very un-pious smug look on my face
Only one of those arrows is reusable
Louis the Pious - I now have 10 arrows on my best, and 6 in my bag
Oskar - I offer only a thousand-yard stare.
Louis the Pious - ah, I forgot I could get those back Cool, so that's 10 on my belt, and 7 in my bag
Kai - I give Louis an awkward pat on the shoulder. "We might make a proper archer of you yet"
There is a single door above you all
Total of 16 silver, 3 daggers, and 1 key
Kai - Happy with everyone's contribution I split the silver pieces evenly among the party I also put one of the daggers on my belt and the key in my pocket
"Let's hope this is the key for the southern door so we can get the prisoners and be out of here. Hopefully before that Whitehead fellow shows up"
Louis the Pious - I nod and, torch in hand, lead everyone back south
You all travel directly to the large room and not to the locked room on the side?
They key slides into the door easily and it opens
You push forward into a small and dirty room. Inside you find two men and six women dirtied and fearful. You peer closer and notice that one of the men and one of the women have perished some time prior, the man from a head wound and the woman from a stab wound in her chest. The remaining six people each have one foot manacled to a chain set in the wall. The corpses too are manacled to the wall. The people fearfully stare at you.
Franken - Sup?
They tremble as you approach especially since you are covered with blood
Louis the Pious - I try the key on the nearest manacle
Franken - Calm down, we're here to try and help.
and you have THREE HEADS HANGING ON YOUR BELT
Franken - This is bad guy blood by the way.
Louis the Pious - "Don't worry, we're not all like BV"
Franken - Major bad men.
They attempt to move away from you and The key does not fit the manacles
Kai - I pull Frankentsun back behind the rest of the party. "You go and guard the door. You're good at that"
But the wise words of Mazz echo in your ears you could always break the chain
Franken - "I'm no tank. But I'll do my best."
Louis the Pious - I beckon to Taff to try and break the chain and find a footstool to help Oskar out
Oskar - "Well yeah I'll give it a go." I grab the sweet axe that had been resting in my pack prior to this and wind up to strike the chain of the closest prisoner
Kai - I give the prisoners a wary glance "Just to be sure, you're not going to do anything dumb or annoying like running away or attacking us when we free you right?"
The prisoners merely wimper as your axe swings and strikes the chain in half
Oskar - "Don't worry guys, chains are probably easier to break than trees." "See?"
Louis the Pious - I free the nearest prisoner and check their limbs where they were manacled
There is some scaring as the flesh ash been rubbed raw red that's about it
Kai - With nothing else to do I calmly walk to the two already dead prisoners and casually search through their belongings
Nothing but their clothes and blood
Louis the Pious - "Can you stand, my child, plural?"
Kai - I shrug, "Well, it was worth a try"
the other prisoners murmur about you rifleing through their corpses and Louis helps a women to her feet
Franken - I silently judge Kai from the doorway.
Kai - I give them an awkward smile "I was just looking for some kind of identification. You know, to notify the next of kin"
Oskar - "Suuuuure."
Franken - I silently judge him even harder.
Louis the Pious - I nod sagely. "I knew you would come around, my son" "I am proud of you"
Kai - I pat Louis' shoulder again. "And that's what I do it for"
Oskar - "And this judgement from a man who molested the first guy we found earlier. For shame, the pair of you."
Louis the Pious - We free the rest of the prisoners, helping thme all to their feet
They tremble and follow your gestures
Franken - SILENT judgement. And at least the bodies I fondle aren't corpses.
Oskar - "Yet."
Kai - "Don't worry. They're practicing their stand-up routine. Life of an adventurer doesn't bring in enough money nowadays"
Louis the Pious "Come now, we can fondle later. For now, we need to get these folks out of here!"
Kai - "Anyway, are you all able to walk? We should get out before other lunatics arrive. Ones worse than the guy with the heads on his belt"
They meekly nod
Oskar - 'Yeah, Staffman and Scruffy Midget are gonna take over the world one day. You know, comedy world."
Louis the Pious - I have a hearty laugh at that one, inadvertantly proving Oskar's point
Kai - "Lead the way Oskar" and I motion for the prisoners to follow
You take the six remaining survivors out of the complex to where Mazz is sleeping on a horse
Oskar - "Yup, back to what was it, Skyferla
Louis the Pious - I sigh contentedly. "Ahhh, Skyferla
Franken - I give Jeanne a light slap. "Wake up!"
Kai - I pull Jeanne off the horse with no name before climbin on it myself. "Thanks for the help, Jeane"
Louis the Pious - We take the people back to town, the weakest ones on the horse (after I politely pull Kai off)
END OF SESSION
