<OOC> Galan says, "Blah. When I start taking Mystic Theurge, then you'll see the power of the water cooled, belt fed, Mana Cannon! Bwahahahaha!"

Last session we had the interogation of the gnome proitor of the Sour Pickle, sheeding light on to some sort of criminal organization coming in to this sleepy little college town. Now our brave gnome stabbers are soldiering off to seek the head of this crime ring!

Arden growls on the way to the smith shop "Rember, I want Durimas alive. The rest you can all kill."

Galan finishes chanting "Shall I send my familiar ahead to scout? I'd rather not be surprised, eh?"

Estivan glares at this, "Don't stab this opne like you did the last, taking my most excellent bluff to a level I never attended. After this be and you will hvae words.

Arden give Estivan the don't fuck with me now look

Galan sighs and addresses the gust of wind "Go into the building and check things out, ok? Don't let yourself be seen. Report back to me."

Estivan says "I did say later. not lets find you mother and kick her kidnappers' collective arses."

<OOC> Estivan says, "Er not=now"

The little gust of air lets out a little "Dur, doo. Whooooo!" and zips out to scout the area.

Galan raises a hand "Chill for a minute."

You paged Carudan with 'You still with us?'.

Estivan just hisses in pain as "chilling" is causing his nice bruised and cuts to hurt more.

Database checkpoint in progress - stand by...

Database checkpoint complete.

Arden waits quietly for Galans gust of wind to report back

<OOC> Galan says, "Oh, boo hoo hoo. Arden and I were nearly gutted and we're not bitching like schoolgirls with a scraped knee, now are we?"

You paged Galan with 'You get a vision of a big smithery being built out of a smaller smithery. There are exposed beams, lumber, and stone laying about waiting to be put into place. Several places to hide for sniping or sneaking in. From the outside there doesn't seem to be much activity, but inside you can see a light on inside.'.

<OOC> Estivan says, "Like I said he's a arrogent prick."

From afar, Galan instructs Vree to investigate.

Carudan pages: Yeah, but because I have no idea what's going on, I don't want to say or do anything yet. I'm a bit uncomforatble going in blind, so to speak. Al mailed me the log, so I'll probably be scanning that for a bit

Galan closes his eyes and hmmms "Not much activity. There're a couple good places for sneaking in. I think only one or two people are in there, as there is just one light. Vree is going to investigate it."

<OOC> Estivan says, "Beside, he was less then a hour or so ago acting like a pampered little princess and is still rather pissed about that."

<OOC> Galan says, "Losing your pet vagina is a hard blow, I know. But hey, you can always get another."

<OOC> Estivan says, "Pissed about being the hick, not losing her parts."

<OOC> Estivan says, "er chick."

The All-Purpose Vending Machine spits out a bottle of Mojo, which Estivan catches and drinks quickly. Estivan's body glows with the powerful mojo.

You paged Galan with 'Inside there's an office that seems to have been fully finished. It's not too lavish, but finely done, felt covered desk and oak file cabinents. There is also a steamer trunk in the back, the only bit that isn't done is a hole where a wall safe will eventually go. Inside there is a gnome checking over some paperworks, and there are two half-ogres standing about, working on their intimidation techniques.'.

Galan pages: They the only people in there?

You paged Galan with 'Hard to do construction at night.'.

Galan pages: How many entrances/exits for that room?

Estivan crosses his arms and starts tapping his foot in extrem impatience.

<OOC> Galan says, "The ST types slowly, Estivan."

<OOC> Estivan says, "I know, but my character is impatient"

<OOC> Galan says, "IC this is just taking a few seconds. Ooc.. is different"

<OOC> Estivan says, "I know, ANY wiat is to much for Estivan. Aderlin Rush hasn't subsided yet."

You paged Galan with 'Only one into the room. The office leads into a rather large room with two other entrances.'.

Galan says "Allright, we've a gnome and two half ogres in an office. Nobody else. They're preoccupied so we could easily get the drop on them. One door leads into the office. Another door leads into a larger room."

Arden says "So lets sneak in and do away with the ogres and have a little chat with the gonme."

Estivan says with feigned curtasy "After you.

Galan nods "Should be easier than dealing with those humans. Lets concentrate on one at a time, shall we? We'll kill them faster that way.

<OOC> Galan says, "What is Carudan, class wise? *doesn't recall*"

Arden leads the sneak into the shop

Estivan follows

<OOC> Carudan says, "Cleric2, Monk4"

Looming before you, you see the stagarded form of the smithy under construction. There are two offical entrances, one in front and a larger one in the back, but higher up there are unfinished bits of roof that can lead inside.

Galan follows whispering "Carudan, Estivan, if you could attack them while I summon some creatures and Arden attempts flanks them?"

Carudan looks at the roof. "Where's that office?"

Arden says "Galan do you know if any of those holes in the roof are over the office the enemy is in?"

You paged Galan with 'Ground floor, center of the building.'.

Estivan looks around, "Should we go front top or back?

You paged Galan with 'There's no holes in the roof of the office, it seems that area the office is in was part of the original finished structure.'.

Carudan says "It depends on how we decide to do the distraction"

Galan says "Ground floor, center of the building is where the office is. And no, ther're no holes: The office is part of the original building."

Carudan says "Then at least one of us should provide a distraction on teh ground floor while the others get in through the roof?"

Galan says "There are no holes over the office, Carudan."

Arden says "Okay last time I came in here I had no problem sneaking up to the office door. If we are quiet then we should have no problem"

Carudan says "I know that, but someone can go through the gaps in the roof and make their way to teh office while the rest of who everr is in there is distracted outside"

Estivan looks at Carudan, "I like Caurdan's idea of a two pronged attack.

Galan says "Err.. we can just use the back door?"

Estivan glares at Galan, "Where's the fun in that?

Galan says "Not splitting up and dying is fun."

Carudan says "Why limit to just one way? Good idea, there's two possible entrances, we should take advantage of that."

Arden says "Galan is right. It would take less effort to just use the front and back doors."

Estivan says "Ok, back door it is then, Arden you go check it for any Secureity measures."

Carudan nods reluctantly.

Arden says "There is none. I was here before the bar fight. We can walk right in and they will never know."

Estivan glares aprrovingly, "Well done. Let go, you first.

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "Everybody going into the back door, give me a spot check, DC 23."

<OOC> Galan says, "Sorry, was distracted"

You all notice the crew must be rather careless, they left tools, spare planks of wood and such simply lying about.

Estivan mutters soemthing about the lack of good help these days.

Galan begins creeping through the room

You paged Arden with 'Looking at the various tools scattered about the floor, you're training as a thief notices that there are very few spots in the door that someone could step and not cause some sort of noise. You didn't notice it before, but now that it happened...'.

Estivan tries to move as silently as possible.

Arden says "Wait guys. IF you go through there you will make noise. Those tools were left out on porpose."

Estivan stops.

Galan says "Then what would you recommend?"

Arden says "Only someone with my training could get in this way without making noise."

Arden says "Lets try the front door. If that dosen't work then I guess its the roof."

Carudan nods. "I'm not sure if even I could manage it. You'd be our best hope. Should we alter the plan to deal with this?"

<OOC> Carudan says, "nm"

Galan heads outside and to the front, then

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "Spot check DC 20"

You paged (Estivan, Galan) with 'Going to the front door, you notice something thin in the doorway, gliting a bit in the moonlight. It looks like a bit of thin wire...'.

Galan points at something glistening "Is that what I think it is?"

Estivan harsly whispers, "Halt!

The front door has not been installed yet, there's just the door jam and the hinges.

Estivan says "Looks like it...."

Arden stops trying to see what Galan is pointing at.

Estivan also is pointing it out.

Galan says "They've booby trapped the front door? What bastards."

There is a thin wire crossing the doorjam at a little above ankle height.

Estivan whispers," Arden, is there anything you can do about it?

Carudan nods. "I'd suggest the roof, but I have a feeling they've prepared something there as well

Arden seeing the wire gets closer to inspect it.

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "Roll search."

Arden rolls 1d20 and gets: 9 Total: 9

<OOC> Arden says, "22"

You paged Arden with 'The wire seems to go directly into the door jam, looking above you can see that there is a bell that is supposedly supposed to ring when a customer comes into the door, but it seems to be connnected to something else. There also seems to be a few holes in the top of the door jam. Plus there seems to be a switch about 3 yards away from the door.'.

Arden pages: Dose it look like I can do anything about it or not.

You paged Arden with 'Definately.'.

Arden takes out his tools and goes to work on the alarm.

Arden rolls 1d20 and gets: 15 Total: 15

<OOC> Arden says, "25"

Working with things in the door jam, Arden trips something and the wire slides down into the door base.

Galan takes a long step back

<OOC> Estivan says, "With a 25? Damn, must have been a really nasty trap"

Carudan stares. "Was that a good thing?" he whispers?

Nothing happens.

Estivan curses silently, thinking that's not good

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "The wire is nolonger there."

<OOC> Galan says, "In a good way or a bad way"

Arden slides his tool away "I think its safe now."

Carudan releases a sigh of relief

Estivan says "Well you first, and everyone watch you step."

Estivan glares at Arden's back for scaring him like that.

Arden sneaks his way into the room keeping an eye open.

Galan follows cautiously

Estivan says "follows suit"

Estivan follows suit

Carudan stays in teh back, keeping his eyes out for anything that might pop out form behind them.

You have no problems going to the center of the complex. In front of you is a door, made mostly out of glass with the name "Durimas Gilusavari: Owner Operator" painted in bronze.

Galan whispers "Shall we charge in, screaming bloody murder?"

Carudan says "No, we wait until we know it's safe"

<OOC> Arden says, "Do ogers have more then 5 HD"

<OOC> Estivan says, "Yes, if they have class lvls, templetes or a whole host of things."

Estivan shales his head and does a sshhhhhh thing.

<OOC> Galan says, "But hey. Think of the exp!"

<OOC> Arden says, "No I asked becuse I was going to use a spell on them but if they are more the 5 HD then it wont work."

Arden gets close to the door to have a listen at whats on the other side.

Estivan keeps a watch out for anything unusual.

A deep voice says, "Hey, boss when're you gonna get done here? I don't like being here while still unfinished. Too many things in da shadows, you know?" An older, and more comanding voice says, "I would think that wouldn't be a problem, expecially since you have superb night vision from your father's side of the family..." He says, "Err, well, yea but that don't mean someone else could hide in them. I'd rather you set up shop at the brothel as well..." There comes a slight chuckle.

Estivan whispers, "Should I charge in breaking the door down and distracting them?

Estivan says "Should be quite simple. The door is made of what appears to be glass."

Carudan whispers I'm not sure... I don't like what that conversation is indicating...

Galan whispers "I say we should just get this done with."

The better spoken one says, "No, a ringleader starting his own criminal organization should not have to be contempt to being based in such a shotty house of ill fame. Let my incompitent nephew deal with it, when this place is finished, it'll be a lavish fortress in the guise of a cottage." There are a couple of thinking grunts, then a second deep voice says, "You've always been the scaredy one Lanty!" "Have not!"

Arden whispers to the others "What other choice do we have. There dosen't look to be any other way in."

Estivan back up, giveing him self room to run and jump thr the door shoulder first.

Carudan whispers "What about waiting for them to come out? Trying to break down the door will still give them time to recover

Carudan whispers "Especially since we don't know what this door is actually made of, or how thick it is.

Arden says "Good idea. We could take up hiding spots in this room. When they come out we jump them."

Galan nods and takes up a hiding spot in the shadows.

Estivan stops his action and nods, then looks for a good hiding spot.

Carudan whispers "Exactly. Maybe even a trip wire if we have time. They won't realize it's an ambush initially

<OOC> Galan says, "Hide?"

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "Give me a hide check Estivan."

You publicly roll 3d10 and get: 5/7/5 Total: 17

Arden slides into the shadows near the door.

Estivan rolls 1d20 and gets: 16 Total: 16

Carudan looks for a good spot to hide as well, somewhat close to the door.

<OOC> Estivan says, "19"

<OOC> Galan says, "Rest of us?"

<OOC> Carudan says, "Hide check as well?"

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "No need."

<OOC> Carudan says, "Darn... I have all these points in hide too..."

<OOC> Galan says, "Spoot :("

<OOC> Arden says, "You I have 25 points in hide. I don't think I could be seen."

<OOC> Carudan says, "Arden wins"

The one voice that seems to be the boss here says, "Well, it seems that we have a few guests..." The second deep voice says, "Should we 'welcome' them boss?" with the sound of metal against leather. "No need," he says, "Well what are you doing out there sulking outside my office waiting for me to come out so you can mug me. Can we not do this civily, why don't you come in Blue Dragon and discuss a few things. Maybe even your dear mother?"

<OOC> Galan says, "Well. Suck."

Arden puts hand to sword trying hard to fight the urge to rush in a kill them all.

Galan rolls his eyes in the darkness.

Carudan puts a hand on Arden's shoulder. "Remember what happened in teh pickle?" he asks

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "The goons had no idea what was going on, but the boss has +15 to spot."

Database checkpoint in progress - stand by...

Database checkpoint complete.

Estivan mutters and follows Arden's lead if he goes in.

<OOC> Galan says, "Through a closed door? In the dark?"

<OOC> Arden says, "I am willing to bet he is a high level rouge"

<OOC> Estivan says, "Way past 60 ft?"

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "A door moslty made of glass."

Carudan whispers "There's no need for them to know which of us is really you.

Galan whispers "I say we just go in, kill the ogres, and capture the gnome."

Estivan whispers, "Carudan, imitate blue.

<OOC> Estivan says, "IIRC Caruden is still masked and in black."

Carudan whispers "My idea exactly. I think I have the basics, it's worth a shot"

<OOC> Carudan says, "I assumed I still did... not quite through the log yet, though"

Galan says "Umm.. Why?"

Estivan says "Then after you Blue Dragon."

Arden gives a nod to Carudan still very angrey.

Carudan nods, then examines the glass door briefly before stepping through

<OOC> Estivan says, "So a dark night, a marsked man in black, and two gokld elves walk into an office....."

"What is taking so long? Are you trying to work out a strategy to kill me Blue? I thought you would be smarter than that..." You can see a small shadow at the desk behind the door reach in and draws out a flask. "I invite you into my office nicely, but you refuse, how do you think that makes me feel?"

Carudan pushes the glass door open, his eyes quickly scanning the room.

Estivan come in behind Carudan.

<OOC> Arden says, "I wish I could dimension door. I would pop into that room and stick my sword in that gnome."

<OOC> Estivan says, "Or shadow walk."

Inside, in front of you is Durimas a middle aged gnome, but still intimidating with his cunning eyes and wry smile, he's sitting at his desk, fingering a flask of alchamist's fire. At other sides of the door are two half-ogres, one with a maul, the other with a great sword. They're just standing there at the moment, but look ready to kill the lot of you if you try anything.

<OOC> Galan says, "What is the gnome wearing?"

Estivan has his hand on his scimitar's hilt.

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "A very fine suit with thin white stripes."

Carudan stares straight into the Gnome's eyes. "Where is she."

<OOC> Estivan says, "And a broad brimmed matching hat?"

Carudan growls

<OOC> Estivan says, "Zoot suit?"

Durimas looks at Carudan for a few seconds then says, "What about the rest of your friends outside? Once they come in, then we'll talk."

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "Nope."

Arden step around the door behind Estivan and Carudan

Estivan looks back, "Come on you two, you now Blue needs what this Gnome knows.

Carudan moves one step forward to give the others more room.

Galan steps inside

Carudan growls "Satisfied?"

Durimas nods, and the half-ogre to your right closes the door. "Well, since we are all in here, I guess you wish to get down to business? No time for pleasantries, I suspect?"

Carudan growls "The sooner we finish this, the better."

Estivan stares down the half-Ogre on the left with an indimidating glare as he flicks out his forked tounge and tastes the air.

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "That'll be hard because he's a good foot-and-a-half/two feet taller..."

Arden remains quiet as he glances around the room

<OOC> Galan says, "I suppose he could always get a stool."

<OOC> Estivan shrugs, "Bigger target.

Durimas puts the flask back into his desk, "Of course, now let's see, you wish to find your mother, but why do you think that I have her? I'm just starting out on this town, and have no place here to put prisoners, as I'm sure you've seen by sulking about the shadows..."

Carudan doesn't move, his eyes trying to read Durimas' face.

<OOC> Carudan says, "Can I try to sense motive?"

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "Roll it, DC 20"

Carudan rolls 1d20 and gets: 8 Total: 8

<OOC> Carudan says, "Shoot, what are the chances Carudan's actually heard the name within teh last 24 hours..."

<OOC> Estivan says, "Very good. He hear it less the 2 hours previously"

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "Arden said it while torturing the first gnome."

<OOC> Carudan says, "I'd like to take this moment to thank Al for providing last week's log!"

<OOC> Estivan bows. "Your very welcome

Carudan smiles. "The bard known as Tessa Ganatea." "he snarls, "My Mother."

<OOC> Galan says, "Why is Carudan pretending to be Arden again?"

<OOC> Carudan says, "BEcause we can. That, and it keeps Arden safe. Carudan takes any punishment/traps, leaving ARden able to free his mother"

<OOC> Estivan says, "Because the last Gnome mistook one or the other."

Durimas sits back, power-steepling his fingers, "Ah, yes the one with the wonderful voice that was so heniously ravished by that great blue dragon. Wondered why it didn't come to me sooner. Well there are two problems with that request; first I don't actually hold her in my possession, BUT I know where she is. That and what price would you pay for this information?"

Galan snickers.

The half-ogre with the greatsword says, "You find somethin' funny goldie locks?"

Arden takes a deep breath

Carudan glares, his breath tight. "It depends. Your head on a dish sounds good to me, but that's probably not what you're interested in. So, what are you asking?"

Galan smirks at the ogre "I do, I do."

Estivan glares the the half-ogre who spoke, "Why are you asking questions Tiny?

<OOC> Estivan says, "1st the=at"

<OOC> Carudan looks at Estivan. "Now there's a man with a pair of brass ones!"

<OOC> Estivan says, "Or an ego the size of a cloud giant."

Durimas says, "Well as I'm sure you found out, I lost out on a very lucrative deal with a Miss Verliserias. Now I would be willing to exchange this information for several dragonic items; bodyparts, magical items, scrolls, and such. Rare metals, I was promised quite a bit of adamantium. But if you don't have any of those, I'd be willing to sell this information for... about 10,000 gold."

Galan says "I don't think you've quite grasped the situation."

Carudan sneers, "A high price for someone who claims to have what i'm looking for. How do I know you're telling the truth?"

<OOC> Galan says, "Damnit, lets kill the ogres and torture the gnome!"

The half-ogre with the greatsword says, "Oh, so I make you laugh? What am I, some sorta clown for your amusement?" Turning to look at Estivan he growls, tightening the grip on the pommel. "Easy Lanty, don't do anything rash like lastime..."

<OOC> Estivan says, "Don't you mean not to?"

Carudan says "For all I know, your information is outdated and of no use to me."

Galan sneers at the ogre "No, you're to ugly to be a clown. Even with makeup."

Estivan snorts back a laugh, "Impertinant fool, I've beheaded things bigger then you.

Durimas shrugs, opening his desk and searching for something, "A valid question, but I think this," he says tossing a torn peice of paper at Carudan, "Will prove the validity of my story."

Carudan closes his eyes and grits his teeth as the others mince words with teh half-ogres

Lanty nods at Galan, "Dat's right!"

Carudan opens his eyes, catching teh paper in his left hand.

Carudan steps backwards, glances at the paper quickly, then motions to the others to look at the paper.

Galan looks.

Arden takes a look

Estivan looks

The half-ogre says, "Yea, but Lanty pulled bigger things out from between his toes. Remember dat elf with da smart mouth?" A wide smile crosses the first half-ogre, "Yea, I do..."

Estivan says "Are you sure your stench was not the think that killed him?"

Galan says "Oh, please. You don't frighten us. We've allready dealt with that other gnome and his little army. You're no more frightening."

Carudan barks "ENough you two," and gestures towards teh note.

It seems to be a page torn out of a journal, is written on a piece of water damaged paper, with black ink, in elvish written with a shakkey hand. It is dated 2 weeks ago. It mentions being moved to somewhere she doesn't know, and contemplating the horrors that will befall her. It has her name signed at the bottom.

You paged Arden with 'It's your Mom's hand writing.'.

Durimas looks at Carudan for a couple of seconds harshly, "You know Blue, I never really liked your fancy of the veil. I honestly find them to impede my speach and breathing. Jawery! Please liberate our companion from his facial prison." The half-ogre with the maul reaches out and takes the mask off of Carudan.

<OOC> Carudan says, "Time to unleash a sonic scream!"

Estivan draws his scimtar and flame it in the same moment.

Carudan unleashes a sonic blast at who ever ris in front of him the minute the mask comes off.

<OOC> Carudan says, "make that second, not minute"

Durimas sighs and shakes his head, "Blue, Blue, Blue, why must you have others take the blame for you?" He says, taking a crossbow out and putting the edge of the table as the ogres grin a bit, ready to beat some heads in.

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "Gnome's grappled agian."

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "So gnome."

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "Ogre I mean."

<OOC> Carudan says, "Hmmm, I guess pinning the gnome is out of teh question... oh well!"

<OOC> Carudan says, "Is the half-ogre facing towards or away from me"

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "You're kinda at his side, so you're not flanking him."

Carudan's claw digs into the half ogre's side, pulling out his kidney. Durimas mustters something on gnomish.

<OOC> Carudan says, "A'ight! Kidney pie for dinner!"

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "Tyson, nother fortitude check for your squid, dc21."

<OOC> Galan says, "22.."

Galan grabs the rope and ties the gnome up before the squid dies

Estivan slits the Ogres throat granting it a much quicker death.

Galan then strips the gnome of possessions, loots the corpses and begins searching the room

Durimas mutters, "This is going to cost me..."

Carudan watches as Estivan provides a merciful death, nodding in silent agreement.

Arden puts away his sword and drops his sheild.

Galan waves a hand, letting the squid vanish. "Excellent, I'd never summoned one of those before. Glad it worked so efficiently."

Carudan walks over to Durimas, still holding the kidney. "Now then, where were we?"

Arden says "Damn right this is going to coast you Gnome."

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "2 Masterwork Chainmail, large Great Hammer & large Greatsword."

Estivan looks at the Elf who is really Arden, "Blue, be gentle this time./ I had a ahrd time patching up is nephew when you were done with him.

<OOC> Galan says, "Anything on gnome and in the room?"

Galan says "Next time, could we spread out battles out a bit? I hate running low on spells."

Carudan looks around for a chair or two to pull up next to the gnome.

<OOC> Carudan says, "Are there any chairs left in one piece?"

Estivan sheaths his scimitar.

Arden says "Now your going to tell us what we want to know. And we will not be paying your price."

Galan says "In fact, we're going to loot the place to make up for the injuries done us and for our lost time and effort. And you're not going to object, now are you? Because I have more squids!"

Durimas gurunts and wriggles his legs in the air, "Alright, you want to know where you mother is? Alright, I was with the Zhents for quite a while things were going good until that zealot Fzhoul took control. At first it didn't affect us but eventually we became more about converting and causing chaos than making money! So I got out of there to strike out on my own. On my way out I saw one of the slave caravans they were moving, up north, your mother was on there. I took her diary page because she begged me and checked her manifest. She's in Darkhold..."

Carudan frowns.

Estivan turns Grey at the mention of Darkhold.

<OOC> Carudan says, "Time for a sense motive!"

Carudan grabs the gnome by the hair and leans him closer. "So, you expect us to believe that you got your entire operation here started within two weeks?

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "The gnome has a pair of +2 short swords, a +2 crossbow, a +2 chain shirt, and 50 platinum. In the chest you find, Hammer of Smithy, +6 Craft +1, 60' Dancing Rope, Guiding Light Lantern (Light at will and once per day locate object), Lathan Far-Seeing Helmet."

<OOC> Galan says, "Madre de Deus! We hit the mother load!"

<OOC> Estivan says, "I want that Hammer!"

<OOC> Carudan says, "should I roll sense motive?"

<OOC> Galan says, "I want the rope, and I'd be willing to discuss giving you my share in exchange for those bracers. Though I rather fancy the crossbow. But back to the game, folks"

He grimises as Carudan grabs his head. "Of course not! I was planing on extending the Zhent's influence up here. Instead of just having it under Zhent control, I decided to take the reigns myself. Wasn't that hard really, expcecially since I sent my dim-whitted nephew and that halfling up here to start things in motihon.

Estivan says "What Halfling?"

Arden says "That vampire halfling?"

Carudan arches an eyebrow. "And you expected the zhents to stand back and let you get away with leaving?

Carudan pauses. "Halfling?"

Durimas mutters, "I'm not sure anymore, never really had much response with him... Was V something..."

Durimas says "Well he wasn't a vampire when I HIRED him."

<OOC> Estivan says, "What was teh Vampire Halfling's name?"

Carudan frowns. "We'll need to find the nephew and ask him a few more questions.

He laughs, "Why for some more of that damable ice cream he found down in the Dragon Coast? He knows nothing."

Carudan says "We'll decide that for ourselves."

Estivan pulls out a piece of Parchemtn with the Shield of the Ferreous Merchtile Consortium, "By the by, is this yours?

Galan says "Didn't we just tie his nephew up a few hours ago?"

Estivan says "Yes we did."

Carudan releases Durimas as Estivan has his turn with the gnome

Arden says "Yes. He is the one I stab to find this gnome."

Durimas says, "He was skilled in various alchemical processes and I used him to sell drugs up north while I concentrated on the civil war." He turns to Estivan and smiles, "Why yes it is..."

Carudan walks around Durimas. "Care to enlighten us about this unique emblem of yours?"

Estivan says "So, can you tell me about why you have the Knigths of the Shield's symbol here(points it out) with the Zhents symbol here?"

He shrugs, "I was working WITH the Zhents, not to say that to say I was a Zhent. I initially was a Knight of the Shield, but got out of them 5 years ago when I got rich funneling arms into the Dragon Coast for their civil war. That's when I came north with a couple of compatriots and started my partnership with the Zhents."

Estivan glowers, "So you borrowed both there symbols to make you own?

Carudan says "And where are these compatriots now?"

Shrugs and says, "Pretty much." He turns to look at Carudan, "They're in hiding, which is definately the smart thing to do. A few are still inside the Zhentarium, trying to erode it from within, but they aren't really high up the power structure."

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "Any more questions?"

Database checkpoint in progress - stand by...

Database checkpoint complete.

Carudan smirks. "So now you're a freedom fighter?"

Durimas says, "No, I'm just trying to carve out my own business in a harsh world."

Estivan says "Now, how can we get into Darkhold and save Blue's mother?"

Carudan stares, distrusting everything Durimas said.

Durimas looks at Estivan and shrugs.

Arden says "Yes. Nowing how to get into Darkhold and out would be a good thing."

<OOC> Estivan says, "Any going to sense motive?"

<OOC> Carudan says, "I asked, but alas,"

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "He's not lying."

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "No other questions?"

<OOC> Carudan says, "he lies!"

<OOC> Carudan says, "Nah, I'll have mercy and shut my mouth"

<OOC> Arden says, "Nope the only question I had he already answered"

<OOC> Carudan says, "And a big apology to everyone, for my goofing up with the combat."

Estivan says "By the way, tell you nephew never to try to extort money from a Noble Knight such as myself, it just makes us angry."

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "THen we'll end here."

<OOC> Galan says, "Cool beans. Productive session, to say the least"

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "Everybody gets 1,050 exp and vote for RP point."

<OOC> Galan says, "Who has Silver's bracers, anyhoo?"

Estivan pages: Arden

Arden pages: Carudan

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "I'm guessing Arden now."

Carudan pages: Estivan.. hard choice

<OOC> Galan says, "And how do we do dividing magic items, anyhoo?"

<OOC> Carudan says, "Being a monk and all, Carudan will take a portion of any money from anything sold"

<OOC> Arden says, "I missed the session were Silvers stuff got taken. SO I dont know where it is."

<OOC> Estivan says, "Its in a gernal party pool, in one of teh Haversacks or Bags of holding."

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "Okay, everybody takes 260 exp since it's a deadlock."

<OOC> Galan so needs them.

<OOC> Estivan says, "You can have the, what sort were they?"

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "They were of +4"

<OOC> Galan says, "We so far have: 3042 worth of gold. 4 splint mail armors, a masterwork long sword, 2 MW heavy maces, and two MW battle axes. 1 new Haversack. +2 short swords, a +2 crossbow, a +2 chain shirt, and 50 platinum. In the chest you find, Hammer of Smithy, +6 Craft +1, 60' Dancing Rope, Guiding Light Lantern (Light at will and once per day locate object), Lathan Far-Seeing Helmet. 2 Masterwork Chainmail, large Great Hammer & large Greatsword."

<OOC> Galan says, "Whats the Far-Seeing Helm do?"

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "Double's the person's visual range."

<OOC> Galan says, "Myself, I'm mostly interested in my share of the gold, the Haversack and the Dancing Rope."

<OOC> Arden says, "I would like one of the +2 short swords."

<OOC> Estivan says, "May Share of the gold and the hammer and possible some of the armours for raw material."

<OOC> Galan says, "We could probably sell them and buy more raw material than you'd get for breaking them down."

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "You'll have to get an Exotic weapon proficentcy for those large weapons."

<OOC> Estivan says, "Generally selling is at 1/2 price."

You paged Arden with 'What would you like to help increase Arden's battle proficentcy?'.

<OOC> Galan says, "Yeah, and raw materials aren't the most costly things in existance. You mostly pay for the craftsmanship. And sides, I've 10 in Diplomacy. I could get us a good deal"

Arden pages: I don't know. Its not that he sucks for combat its just my roll for combat have been terrible.

You paged Arden with 'Alright. I just hope the gnome's weaponry might help a bit.'.

<OOC> Estivan says, "I can probally melt down and refined teh stuff into ingots that might be worth far more the then items themselves."

Arden pages: Besides when I designed this character I was going for the more steath stab out of the shadows and disappear thing rather then the lets charge in and kill them thing.

Huh? (Type "help" for help.)

<OOC> Galan says, "Err.. unless Joe is willing to ignore all common sense, no. You can't."

<OOC> Galan says, "Unless you really want me to believe that armorers buy 100 gold ingots and sell the result for 50 gold.."

<OOC> Elemental says, "This si D&D. What is this 'economy' of which you speak?"

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "No, I'm not going to let that fly."

<OOC> Estivan says, "Steel Ingots, very fine steel."

<OOC> Galan says, "Are so not going to be worth more than they are when they're in armor shape."

<OOC> Estivan says, "Per pound they might be, much more then just selling for half."

<OOC> Galan says, "And you're going to be getting 1/2 of what those ingots are worth. Which means we'll getting less gold."

<OOC> Smokin_Joe putting the foot down. "No they won't."

<OOC> Elemental says, "You know, I just realised a mage with the Fabricate spells could manufacture full plate and sell it dirt cheap, till the economy breaks."

Huh? (Type "help" for help.)

<OOC> Smokin_Joe says, "That's messed up..."

<OOC> Estivan says, "No, the amrour would be likely paying for what the igots worth or more."

<OOC> Galan says, "Umm.. Al, you're completely wrong here. The price of the armor represents the raw material, the work spent turning it into armor, and any other expenses it's manufacture and storage incurs."

<OOC> Elemental says, "Not Fabricate, the spells that let you create stuff from thin air."

<OOC> Galan says, "Unless these ingots are solid platinum, they will not be worth more than the armor."

<OOC> Elemental says, "Can't recall the name."

<OOC> Galan says, "Or just Polymorph Any Object to turn coal into diamonds.."

<OOC> Elemental says, "Something else about that spell is that a mage could create an infiniate number of clubs (since what you can created is rated by GP cost, and clubs cost 0), causing the universe to collapse."

<OOC> Arden says, "Guys I really have to go. So is there any problem with me taking one of the +2 short swords and one +2 crossbow. And ofcourse my share of the money."

<OOC> Galan says, "This explains why you can dig down twenty feet anywhere in Faerun and find a boat load of gold, allready mined, refined and minted."

<OOC> Galan says, "None. You get 760.5 gold."

<OOC> Estivan says, "I am thinking in very differnt terms then you are Tyson. The ingots would me worth more to the Smith then the armour because they would get far more profit from them per pound."

<OOC> Arden says, "Okay guys later"

Arden has disconnected.

<OOC> Estivan says, "Everyone gets 760.5g?"

<OOC> Galan says, "Yes."

<OOC> Galan says, "And you're wrong Al. If he buys the armor for 1/2 cost, he's sure as hell not going to spend more on ingots that he has to spend time turning into armor."
