Egare sees Copperhand go towards the door and bows pointing towards the door. "Be my guest" he says as he moves past.
"Alright scoop up the coin and let's head along?"Ruul sees Hildegard looking about and sighs. "Don't worry, I got this." He strides up, plants both feet, and gives it a mighty pull. With a loud squeak, the door yawns open.
On the other side is a corridor. It travels straight for 20' before turning left. The trail of coins continues.
"This feels wrong. Not oh don't do that kind of wrong but this is too easy ki d of wrong" he says.
"Either that or there's something nasty waiting at the end of this trail. Look sharp, all," Copperhand muses as he creeps towards the turn, eyes peeled and weapon ready."Maybe someone is carrying a sack of coins with a tear in it."
Copperhand edges slowly towards the bend in the corridor. After 10' he peers around the corner to the left. After 20', it opens up into a room with a spiral staircase heading upwards, flush with its right wall. However, after 10' the hallway also branches to the right. The trail of coins heads down this way.Copperhand muses as he creeps towards the turn, eyes peeled and weapon ready.
OOC: It sounds like the party is keeping pace, and since Copperhand is normally in the front rank, I'll assume standard formation with him out a little ahead.Copperhand continues to cautiously follow the trail of coins.
OOC: You do indeed.OOC: 2 HP damage - lucky as hell if I remember your current score correctly
"Hold there or get feathered," says a voice from a man standing behind the archer, with a mocking grin.Hildegard looks up at the newcomers, she'll try to get Copperhand out as fast as possible.
"Yes to the first, but no thank you to the second," says the mocking brigand. He purses his lips and eyes Hildegard and Copperhand. "We're providing lessons to green adventurers. Not for free, mind you! It looks like you stumbled across our training camp. That will be 100 GP for each of yuhs," the man says, pointing at the pair in the pit."Have all of you come here to extract treasure from this acursed place? Why not join us?" she shouts to them.
OOC: Roll your hide in shadows.Egare attempts to slip into the shadows.
OOC: Correct. And just to be clear, there are a bunch more than just three guys there, but it's only three in the front row threatening your friends in the pit.OOC: the trio is on the other side of the pit from us, correct?
The leader squints at you and his eyes scan through the party. Then he breaks out in a smile. "I'm pleased to announce a discount for new customers. For the mere price of two suits of plate armor, two shields and two swords, we will let both of you live to see another day." Gesturing at Bron in the back, he continues, "I hope you're a good friend of this dwarf, because he's only wearing a child-size suit of leather armor, which is of no value to us. Or if you all can scrape up one-hundred crowns for your stout little friend, that will also work.""I haven't got 100 GP. Why would I be here in this dreadful place if I did"
"So the plate, shields and armour and we escape from here? Alright and what guarantee do I have you won't just kill us anyway?"For the mere price of two suits of plate armor, two shields and two swords, we will let both of you live to see another day." Gesturing at Bron in the back, he continues, "I hope you're a good friend of this dwarf, because he's only wearing a child-size suit of leather armor, which is of no value to us. Or if you all can scrape up one-hundred crowns for your stout little friend, that will also work
"Hey, masters of the Pits of Whatever!" the smirking bandit cries out to the air. "You need to send better errand girls!""...they watch me even now" she says quieter but still audible.
