Dungeons & Dragons 3.5 Play By Post Party Leader A peasant begs...
Good news, KNtoran, something wacky!
Oliron is agitated and seems a bit enraged at the soldiers lack of information on the location of the orcs.
He stares ominously at the soldiers.
"This is no good soldiers."
"I know you know the location of the orcs."
"If you had any honor you would tell us wear to find them."
Oliron grips the hilt of his blade.
ooc: Oliron wonders what luck it is to see another capable adventurer cross their path. If the soldiers do not answer Oliron he will follow his own group towards were they think the orcs are.
Namdar moves to restrain or head off Oliron's bold addressing of the soldiers but is too late. He then sees Krusten's discomfort and distaste at yet another male half-orc, making three, which anyone would find pretty suspicious, he reckoned.
"So... The Duke's men... They're either in on something or are being kept from finding out something, not being allowed to patrol in some areas. We need to proceed the two days to the Duke's and allow Lionel to make his entry, then if you all still want, we continue on without him, if it takes more than a short time, or if the audience is brief enough, we wait and see what information he gathered, and perhaps still head further north."
He turns and watches to see how the guards react to Oliron's bluster, prepared to "talk them down" if need be, using his numerous social interaction and charisma based abilities and skills.

It seems like Lionel, being used to royal policy, or one of us would know whether it's likely that his audience with the Duke will be short or extended, like a quick stop maybe a an hour or two, or longer, as we may want to go on if it is very long. If relatively short, Krusten will accompany him, and if it seems like a good idea, everyone can act as his retinue, and he can ride Namdar's horse into town, as befitting his station.
OOC: We seem to have lost Amaruil and other thief guy that came in about the same time (can't blame them), and I presume Krakyn is still somewhere on ID but not in here. So we have Namdar, Pundit, Oliron, Beast, Krusten, Lionel, theoretically Skedvick, and now Ryorst. Maybe we can get back on track.
I'm also a little unclear as to where exactly the Duke's men are and are not patrolling, and what areas they are specifically forbidden from patrolling. I read the post but I can't get right in my head, and where these all are in relation to the farmer's and to the Duke's location. Edited: JPatt on 23rd Feb, 2010 - 9:30am
