Tharr’s Raw Notes
Mezzo the 10th
Gareth decided to swap out the Chain Shirt for the Scale Mail Armor
Longsword – 8 gp
Rapier – 12 gp
Studded leather armor – medium – 15 gp
2 light shields – 4gp total
Scale mail armor – medium – 30gp
4 moonstones – 200gp
So- while the Dude tried to get us a better deal, it seems we were already getting a sweet bump via the Suki Trade love…
Total: 269 gp
After the swap Gareth paid in 30 gold for the difference in the price of the armors.
269+30 = 299gp
59 gold and 8 sp each
Traded in- I’m now at 49 platinum, 7 sp
On our way out of the trade district a voice beckons from the alleyway- psst, I have a proposition.
I hear you’re delivering something today. The group I work with would be willing to pay you well above what you are being paid to look the other way to let us take that package. We’d be willing to pay you 1000 gold
1000 for anyone who survives. If anyone in your party doesn’t want to- make it look like an accident.
He said You’re making a mistake and disappeared around the corner.
Jeff tried to hire someone to tell Lesko since we didn’t have time to warn him.
Sketchy waif- I might forget if I don’t get the money up front, sir.
Silver, sir- or punches to the spleen, sir?
We made it to the edge of town. A wagon just outside the gate. It seems to have the symbology of the West Suki Trading Company.
Jeff’s suggestion- we rigged a couple of blankets to cover the symbols.
There’s a large crate in the back- Gareth hopped in.
I showed my badge to the driver and the driver reciprocated when asked.
Not a covered wagon.
The crate is about the same size as the one we delivered earlier but it is not the same crate.
The four of us sat in the crate while Merry sat up with the driver.
Jeff asked Effie- are you getting any weird feelings from the package we are trying to safeguard.
She jumps off Jeff’s shoulder and sat on the crate and did not go all the way through it.
She said, That’s not generally what happens when I sit on things so yeah, I’m getting a weird feeling.
Jeff asked – can you see inside the wagon? And she said no.
Jeff asked- why do you go through the box but not his shoulder?
Maybe that’s why I was trapped in there?
She shared- I remember- I was seeking a mate, another one of my kind…
Driver asked- how did you guys get this gig? They usually don’t bring new people in on this- I’ve been working with the same group for the last month.
Keep the bad guys off of me and we’ll be good.
The driver says- who are you talking to? You are responding to nothing…
Two horses are pulling the wagon.
His name is: Osphredd
Suki local but I make this trip to Bitchy every couple of weeks.
Yeah, these roads are not that safe- that’s why when we do a delivery of high importance, we work with contractors.
We’ll be traveling through the forest- I’ve seen lots of things.
Encounter- there’s another wagon. One horse is down- one seems alive and attached.
6 humans in various styles- mixed between armor and plain clothes.
One of them yelled- nothing to see here, we’ve got this under control.
(critted spot- 33)
I noticed that this one looks shaken, perhaps under diress
I saw the other two may be holding concealed weapons.
I shared that with the group and asked Osphredd to stop the wagon.
Gareth said we should keep going.
One of the mystery men yelled- we still have one horse, we’ll be find.
Driver brought the wagon to a halt.
I got out of the wagon and called over Hey, I’m a healer- do you guys need some help?
Merry said- we should stay with the wagon, maybe this is a trap.
Jeff said- maybe we should keep going, we’ve got plenty of guys to help them.
One of them jumped up and tried to leap off. She ran over and yelled- help us! In plain clothing.
Another one tried to run. One of the armor guys took a swing at them and missed.
One of the soldiers stepped over and attacked.
Their weapons are no longer concealed.
One of the fleeing people got attacked and dropped.
I waded over and took a swing at the assailant attacking the unarmed lady. And he dropped.
One of them kept trying to attack the horse and kept failing.
One of the far away assailants pulled out a bow and tried to shoot the horse- failed.
The other far one charged me and missed.
The lady who was accosted escaped and ran behind the wagon.
Gareth walked over to me, drawing his axe, and attacked
I hit one and he dropped, moving up to the far one with the bow.
Jeff moved up and shot the attempted horse-killer.
The archer backed away from me and shot one of the horses.
I moved up to the archer and took a swing and hit him but he didn’t go down.
Jeff moved over to console the scared lady.
Gareth moved over and finished off the horse stabber.
I tried to knock out the bowman but I couldn’t connect.
Gareth walked over and cleaved him in twain.
The shot horse bucked and broke its harness.
Merry moved over to the horse.
The driver jumped on the free horse.
I walked over to see if I could help the other person who was cut down earlier- I could not. I walked over towards the other horse in the other wagon.
Our horse started to run with the driver on it.
Gareth tried to stop the horse but missed it.
The horse on the other wagon was fine but his partner was very dead. I got a little sick but I managed to keep it under control.
The driver says- some of the reins from the other cart.
I asked her her name.
Is Jim dead? Yes, he seems to more.
In the broken wagon there is a chest that Katie is looking through.
We stripped the villains of their valuables.
4 suits of studded leather
2 light shields
One had a little chest: 100 gold pieces and three white pearls.
Rolled up scroll: Minor Aura from the school of Transmutation.
A spell from the school of transmutation.
Jeff kept looking at it.
I asked Katie if she wanted to join us- she asked if someone could help her with her chest.
We loaded her chest and the corpse on the wagon- I rose the horse tied behind the wagon.
The rest of the day is uneventful.
She requests assistance in burying her husband – Xaxis and I helped her burying
Spot checks all around.
Scroll of Expeditious Retreat.
Xaxis whispered that he thinks he saw something.
I checked out the horses with the driver- everything looked normal as far as I could see.
Xa got hit by a rock with a note on it.
He removed the note from the rock- rough common
Gist of it
Test luck against bugbear champion- huge prize
Rough map of some landmarks you haven’t seen and a cave on it.
Jeff suggests that Effie fly up and scout the area- the wings are out by they are not flapping. She just seems to float up.
Katie looked at the note- looks like a child wrote this…
Xa & Jeff
Driver & Gareth
Tharr & Merry
Effie came back- said she didn’t see anything.
Night goes back uneventful.
Effie messing with a weird looking flower I’ve never seen before. It seems a little blurry but fantastically colored. It looks like she’s eating it.
Hungry? Gareth asks.
Effie says- she hasn’t ate in three days.
Katie- what were you up to when you got attacked.
She said she’d be back in a minute- kneeling at the grave.
Katie- my husband and I were going to Bichi – we were actually moving.
We came on a boat probably about a week ago from the mainland.
Bichi is the next city on the road- looking for a nice area to settle down.
Where are you from on the mainland? I asked
Gray Sand in the southern part of the mainland.
The mainland of Keshiki? Yes, she says.
What did you do in gray sands?
My husband was a small scale merchant and I did some cooking in the local kitchens.
About halfway through the second day trip- the landmarks begin to match up the map. Off to the side is a clearly-defined
Xax asked the driver- round trip? I’ll stay there- we have a couple of contacts to see for the exchange.
There are torches on either side of the cave.
Jeff says- might be a bear sized bug.
We can come back on the way back…
We hear a cackling noise across the river – ha ha ha ha, look what came here!
I drew my and cast magic weapon on it.
Slightly larger than a human. Hyena-like head.
Gareth threw a javelin and one of the guys.
Second round- moved up to the edge of the river in front of the horses and cast shield of faith.
‘Hope this tickles…’
One of them moved up and attacked the Dudinator.
He ran past me and I took a swing at the hyena monster.
Ha, ha, ha, ha- that didn’t hurt, that didn’t hurt
Gareth took the other one down, which laughed all the way to the grave…
My enemy started foaming at the mouth and took a swing at me and missed.
2 Weird looking metal bars with chain
2 Studded leather
2 Heavy steel shield
Effie flew around- I think I found a stash but I couldn’t tell what’s in it…
I asked effie- she could see in the dark, she shared.
She guided us in the direction of the stash.
I have one effie scale.
She leads us to the stash
Filled with coins.
Mostly copper- I’d guess a little over 40,000 coins
Spend 30 minutes- 40000 coppers, 600 gold coins
We decided to fill her chest with 10000 coppers.
It was a quiet night.
Starting the third day.
Jeff cast Detect Magic- the box looked the same way.
As the one after we dropped it.
The third day of travel is uneventful- at the end of the day we arrived in Bischi
We could probably rent an overnight storage thing.
I’ll take care of the costs for that…
Through one of the districts into the center- to the trade district.
Driver gets an area that’s big enough for all the horses and our stuff.
An uneventful night- in the morning we hit the money changer.
Give her an amethyst – 100gp value
+1000 copper coins
+2000 copper to the driver.
39,000 copper conversion to >>
370 gold 5 sp
1000 copper directly to Katie
-100 gold – ameythyst to her
-20 gold to driver
750 gold 5 sp
150 gp 1 sp – each
Turned my share into platinum
49pp + 15pp
7sp + 1sp
64 pp, 8 sp
Jeff handed Katie a baggie- ‘this will help with the grieving’
Driver said woo-hoo!
We meet up with our contact…
The driver took us to Levon
Levon- Ah! I hear you have done well!
A bonus on top of the 300 we had agreed on.
Effie is on my shoulder- I find a second one (scale).
(today is the 13th)
He only had good things to say- more than doubling your reward.
610 gold for us- 112 gp ea.
I converted mine into 11 pp and 2 gp
My total: 75 pp, 2 gp, 8 sp
Levon- if you’re going to be around here for a while, there are a couple
Jeff wonders aloud how far his adversaries with the seeds get..
Go see the mercenary guild- they broker the odd jobs.
Magic guild to get me to Inferno faster? I don’t think we have a mage guild, but perhaps the city corner.
Jeff wants to post a job…
Magical transportation is very expensive.
Magical shops might get you in contact…
Gareth- know any nature types of protestors in the area? We don’t generally have that issue with the town guard…
I know for a fact that some of the outlying settlements- I would visit Omen about a 4 ½ day trip
Or north go Gosuna- just 2 days
Whatever level you are going to is that many days
Spend days working with Thomas on reading…
We will resume at the beginning of Mezzo 15th
