Ragadorn Tavern Brawl
« on: September 16, 2012, 01:33:51 PM »

You came to the Ragadorn Tavern tonight with one purpose in mind. But you're not the only one with plans, and things are about to kick off. Worse, one of the bar's patrons tonight is secretly the Helghast, a terrifying undead shapeshifter. At this rate, you'll be lucky to leave the bar alive!



BAR PATRONS

Zaratustra, you are the Adventuress. A skilled assassin, you came here tonight to pick up the payment for your last mission. Your contact was killed, but you know he hid the payment somewhere in the tavern. Your mission is to recover the 30gp Large Diamond treasure item.

You are also the Ranger. You sold some furs to the Merchant today for 25 gold crowns, but later discovered that 15 coins were counterfeit. Your mission is to either persuade the Merchant to hand over the 15 gold, or kill him and take the money.

Upthorn, you are the Knight. A warrior lord of Durenor, you have come to this tavern looking for the Adventuress who assassinated your brother two days ago. Your objective is to arrest the adventuress, or kill her if she refuses to surrender.

You are also the Druid, a member of an evil sect known as the Ceners. Your arch-enemies, the Herbwardens of Bautar, have discovered the location of your secret temple nearby. You have tracked one of their spies to this ale-house. Your objective is to kill the Herbwarden.

Beat Bandit, you are the Merchant, a rich trader who loves gambling. Your objective is to leave the tavern 50 gold crowns richer than when you came in.

You are also the Mercenary, the sole survivor of an ambush on your regiment after they were betrayed by a spy. You don't know what the spy looks like, except that he often disguises himself as a magician or ranger. Your objective is to kill both the Magician and the Ranger.

Kazz, you are Lone Wolf, a hero of great reknown. You were attacked last night by the Helghast, a shapechanging demon servant of the Darklords. It fled, but you have tracked it to this tavern, where it has assumed the guise of one of the patrons. Your objective is to kill the Helghast.

You are also the Herbwarden, a peaceful druid investigating your violent enemies the Cener Druids. You have discovered their temple and must return to Bautar to report the discovery to the other herbwardens. Your objective is to acquire 40 gold to buy safe passage home.

JDigital, you are the Magician. You accidentally killed a thief today in a scuffle, and now the thieves' guild is after you. Your objective is to acquire 20 gold by any means to acquire safe passage home.

You are also the Landlord who owns the tavern. Your objective is to collect 40 gold from the gaming table tonight and ensure none of your three staff are killed.



SCORE

At the end of 16 rounds, you receive 6 points for each objective you achieve, 3 points for each character who survives the game, 1 point for each magic item you possess, and -2 points for each character killed.

WELCOME TO RAGADORN TAVERN

The time is eight o'clock. The bar closes at midnight. Fifteen minutes passes each round.

Once you've registered on the dicelog, use it to roll 1d10 for each of your characters. On 1-7, you're already in the tavern, and can place your guy anywhere except on a atble or behind the bar. On 8-10, you have just entered, and must place your character adjacent to a door.

Here's the map. When you move or change anything, edit the map with something that uses a fixed-width font, and paste it at the end of your post, inside [pre] tags.

Gaps in the walls are windows. The parts that extend off the edge are doors. Anything surrounded by # symbols is a table. The big table to the south is the bar, and the large 3x3 table at the top right is the gaming table. Lowercase letters are items (see "missile weapons chart" in post 2 for the key).

Question marks are treasure (see list below). Laumspur restores +4 Endurance, once only. Alether gives +2 to Combat Skill, once only. Neither count as magic items for the purpose of score.

Each character's stats are listed: the letter that represents the character, their name, Combat Score, Endurance, Movement points, Gold pieces, and weapons.

Starting Equipment

Oh, one more thing. You'll be pleased to know that each of you possesses one random magic item. I'll have a third party message each of you with two numbers corresponding to the table below.

1. Magic Sword: +4 to Combat Skill
2. Ring of Speed: +2 to Movement
3. Elixir of Life: +8 to Endurance (1 charge)
4. Magic Mace: +2 to Combat Skill
5. Spell Book: Put anyone to sleep for two rounds (2 charges)
6. Magic Wand: Stop anyone moving for two rounds (2 charges)
7. Magic Talisman: +4 Combat Skill when defending
8. Golden Shield: +2 Combat Skill when defending
9. Medallion of Stealth: +2 to Movement
10: You are secretly the Helghast, a powerful undead shapechanger. Your true objective is to kill Lone Wolf. If your false identity is "killed", or you choose to discard your disguise (which you can do at any time), you continue using the stats of the Helghast. The Helghast can only take damage from Magic weapons (Magic Spear, Magic Sword, or Magic Mace).

You may assign each number to whichever of your characters you wish. The items you carry are secret until you reveal them. I'll have someone who's not playing randomly pick the numbers and message them to you, so that I won't have an unfair advantage.

Kazz can't be the Helghast.

Also, since [pre] tags seem to shrink text, I'm suggesting that we use [tt] tags for map posting instead, and that we bold our changes to the map, so people can more easily see what happened.

Harold, the Herbwarden, wrinkled his nose as he stepped through the door.  As a diligent warden of herbs, he was used to sweet fragrances; this pungent pit struck him like a wet hammer.

"You always were a nancy," said Westen, the Lone Wolf.  He was leaning beneath the torch, just beside the door.  Harold started, then turned.  "Wes.  Good to see you," he huffed, nearly meaning it.  Westen grinned.

"How long has it been?" asked Westen.  He was cloaked, by both shadow and an actual cloak, and his spot beneath the sconce made him alarmingly difficult to spot.  A ferocious spear was slung over his back.

"I don't know.  Seven years?" proposed Harold.  He eyed the room; he didn't think a crowd could get less savory than the punks who bullied him at University, but this particular location was shockingly savor-free.  He wore a bright beret, a foppish tunic, and a perpetual grimace.  He looked like he'd been studying for years about how to look precisely out-of-place.

"Eight.  Eight years and forty-four days, two days after graduation, when you got on the boat back to Lyris."  Westen took a swig from his personal flask.  "Not counting when I ran into you two years ago, though you were apparently too busy to speak."

Harold sighed.  "I had the Prince's ear for the first time in ages, and there were some very important--"

Westen waved his hand.  "Herbs don't warden themselves, so on, so forth.  It doesn't matter.  I'm glad you came."

"What is this about, anyway?" asked Harold.

"I knew you were in the area, and I needed someone I can trust wholeheartedly," said Westen.  "The wuss from school would certainly do."

Harold bristled.  "As long as you hold to the agreement stated in your letter, I suppose I'm at your service."

Westen nodded.  "Very well.  We'll hash the terms out in a minute.  Until then," he said, gazing at Harold's courtly attire, "try keep a low profile, would you?"

--

i've named my characters with the same letter that their initial begins with on the board.  it's a convention i hope you'll all agree to follow, if you're gonna be writing as much as i am.

i'm also fairly certain that i'm not allowed to make my guys cooperate until they've had a Talk round, so, once the game begins proper, that's what they'll do in the first quarter.

i suppose.  i'm slightly in the dark.  LET'S HAVE A GOOD TIME GUYZ

The Croupier clears his throat.

"Ahem. Sir, for the last time, we cannot accept your spellbook as collateral. If you don't intend to gamble, please leave the table."

The Magician crawls around on his hands and knees, lifting floorboards and poking around for loose change.

"That's easy for you to say! If I don't get a lucky win tonight, I'm not leaving this bar alive!"

The Landlord rolls his eyes and wipes down the bar. "Welcome to the Ragadorn Tavern, travellers."

Eight o'clock, movement phase

All movement happens in this phase. If you want to combat someone, you have to move adjacent to them and engage them. An engaged character can't move in this turn. Initiative order is as the chararacter list, except that it reverses every turn, and the Croupier and serving girls always move first.

You can't move diagonally. It costs one square extra to climb onto/off a table or over a body, and two squares extra to bundle out of a window. You can leave the tavern, but you come back in two rounds later by any door.

You can also pick up items you're standing on or adjacent to, at a cost of 1 movement point per item. You can take treasure, gold, magic items and weapons, but not chairs, torches etc.

Question marks are treasure: Roll 1dn (where n is the current length of the treasure list), then remove that item from the list. If the treasure is on a table it's "hidden" and you have be adjacent for a full round to "find" it: you must start your movement phase already adjacent to it, and can't take it on turn 1.

You have to be adjacent to the big gaming table to gamble.

Also: You can engage a character in Talking, which is like combat, except that instead of hitting each other you can trade items or tell someone they're under arrest. There's a rule that you can't co-operate without Talking first, but it's not very clear what that means, so we'll ignore it. Your characters can shout messages across the tavern and help each other as they please.

Anna, the Adventuress, darts around, looking for something as hurriedly as she can afford. She feels exposed here, but she's not leaving with the mission payment, because a girl has to eat. She looks behind a barrel -

searching for first item

and it's the diamond she was looking for. She shrugs, blows a kiss to the knight, and walks back out.



Ranger Ranger (first name Ranger, last name Ranger, so Ranger Ranger Ranger) rangerly walked into the tavern, elbowing past Harold. "Out of my way, weed-chewer." He will teach that merchant to not dishonor his surname (passed down from his father, Ranger Rangest Ranger)

Yeah, sorry. Been busier than usual today, and what with Zara's ridiculous Adventuress luck, I've been at something of a loss about what to do with the knight.

I think I've come to

Yansey McMercenary had been drinking at the bar for some time when the ranger entered.

"That bastard," he thought as he looked up from the ale "That's the one that slayed my crew! He's the nerve to just stroll into a place like this and live his life like nothing's happened! I'll show him a thing're tw-" his eyes keep tracking the man until he stops and the eyes don't. They crossed over his unknown half-brother at the table. They shared the same noble father, but while the one-day merchant's mother was a woman of standing herself, the mercenary's had been a whore. The two had lived their entire existences nearly side-by-side. The father was determined, at least, to let them meet one day and know of their pasts. But then he died and the two never learned anything nor cared.

Finally the mercenary's gaze sets on the magician on the other side of the table.

"Wait, no, that's the man that did it! What is this trickery?" He finishes his mug before making his way across the room. He was sure there was some kind of trickery afoot. He would simply have to take both their heads and see if one looked more familiar in the morning. Approaching the magician from behind he readies his blade.

"I'm going to punch you now. With this sw- oh hold on a sec." He mumbles half of before reaching down at something incredibly shiny.

1d8
7 - 10 gold

Across that very table his secret brother Chansey Merchantstien was busy trying to place a bet.

"Chansey chance chance! [more gambling mooooooreeee gambling]" he calls to the croupier.

"So," said Harold.  "The thing is, I need 40 crowns."

Lone Wolf nodded.  He seemed distracted, looking across the tavern.

"You see, there's this sect of druids.  They practice dark magicks, erasing all the good that wardening herbs can prov--"

"Do they wear hoods and wield quarterstaves?" asked Westen.

"Why, yes.  How did--"

"Get behind me," ordered the Wolf.  In one fluid motion, his spear was in his hand, and his other arm was shoving the Herbwarden toward the window.  Shortly, he was blocking the stomping Druid with his frame.

"You'd best turn around and go," he said to the approaching cultist.  "You might not get another chance."

Harold, for his part, was struggling to remove his dagger from its sheath while still keeping up a good whimper.

The Magician mutters under his breath as he gropes around underneath a broken floorboard. "You have no money here, Gary the Grey..."

He looks up at the Mercenary towering over him.

"Impossible! What supernatural means did you employ to move so quickly? No matter... My SPELL BOOK may only have one spell, but I have prepared it TWICE! SLEEP!"

The Mercenary suddenly falls asleep. Gary quickly snatches up a purse from the floorboard and runs off. "Twenty gold! Later, shitlords!"

"Oi!" The Landlord leaps over the bar. "No spells in the tavern! And put that bloody floorboard back!" He spots a purse someone dropped on the floor, but it's empty.

Eight o'clock, missile phase

In order of initiative again, you can throw items or weapons. The missile weapons chart shows what you need to roll on 1d10 for a successful hit, and how much damage it deals. The number at the top is the range in squares (no diagonals).

You can throw anything adjacent to you, or on your square, or any carried weapon. You can throw your own weapon, but if fighting unarmed in melee you'll be at -4 Combat Skill.

Magic weapons, if thrown, use the normal rules except that you roll on the melee combat chart for damage.

If you're Talking to someone and they throw a missile at you, you're now Combat instead.
