(Shadowraven) You make it to the room no problems


The party meets in the common room in the morning. The mood is very somber thou. Allot of the people gathered have puffy red eyes & cheeks, & most are still in the state of dismay. The proprietor of the inn, a female halfling named Cham Larringfass is among the gather people, tear streaming down her cheeks. You see a familiar face from the festival last night with her, Kurst Grath. He was the younger, more quite of the two brothers. He has his arm around her shoulders try to comfort the woman.


There is a gathering outside of townsfolk, they too are in a state of dismay.

Branwyn is cautious and very curious about what has happened that she somehow missed and approaches the crowd in he normal quiet manner. She speaks quietly "What has happened?"

As dawn comes and goes he makes his way down to see the crowds. While not as accustomed to human ways as others, he did recognize the signs of sorrow in them. "Riiki does not know what is going on, but if there is sadness, Rikki will help to make it better if he can"

Thomlin comes out of his room whistling a jaunty tune, heading out to feed and curry Falgar.  Seeing the faces of the townsfolk and hearing Branwyn's question, he stops mid-whistle and waits for an answer.

Beorht finishes his dawn prayers. He heads to the common room to break his fast. Seeing the sorrowful looks of those who were just so recently partying is a shock he wasn't expecting.


"People, what evil has befallen this night? If by Sarenrae's grace I can be of assistance, I will. Is anyone injured?"

Kurst looks at the group & says


"I recognize you from the festival. My brother, Rodrick is dead......''


The words seem to escape the young man's mouth before tears stream from his face. The halfling, Cham Larringfass speaks at this time


"It must have happened in the wee hours, maybe even right after the festival. Suicide they are saying..."


'No! I won't accept that! My brother would never take his own life, he had too much to look forward to." Kurst interrupts


"I will start my investigation later today but I'm patrol captain now & my family is in crisis now, I'm not sure I can do both right now. Especially since my brother WAS the best investigator in town & I feel like I should be more of brother to him & a son to my father in this time of need then a patrol captain."


Something makes the young man perk up a bit


"Hey since you all stepped up for little Ruby last night, can I call on you to help, actually lead the investigation?"


"I've started the investigation but I've only begun here."

The frog-like figure hopped easily up onto a stool to look the young man in the eyes as best he could. His own yellow ones full of a compassion his facial structure had no real way of showing. "Riiikki will help, yes. You deal with familly, familly is very important, They will need your time and your strength to support them, and you will need the same in return.  Rikki will help find the truth, Riiki has no one depending on him, and few needs to be met, so Riiki has all the time to make sure the truth is known."

Beorht will also step forward. "Kurst, I am sorry for this loss you and your family must now face. Please, we would be honored to help. May we see Rodrick's body and the potential crime scene? With my knowledge of healing and herbalism, perhaps with Sarenrae's guidance I can help shed light on the circumstances of his death."

"Gods no, not the Captain! I'm happy to help in any way I might." says Ragnar. Privately he starts thinking about what he knew of the Captain and anything he might have heard around town. (Know (local) 15+3=18)

It would be an honor to lend any aid I can to the investigation. my skills are arcane in nature, a combination of investigative magics may provide even more information.

Branwyn only reflects for a moment "If that is your desire than I will do work with these others to find the culprit."

You try to recall something in regards to the late Captain. He was loved by allot of people in town. Many seen him assuming the Patrol leader spot currently occupied by his father, but he did seem to be pre-occupied with his poems & plays more these days then actual militia matters. He has written 3 plays, most were well loved by the town but there was one that was a controversial flop. This one was about a young half-orc whose orc mother's settlement was overrun by humans raiders.


You also know that had been seeing a local weaver, a female half-orc named Brinya Kelver. She lives in a boarding house, northwest of the Commons. Something that really hasn't gone over well with a few folks, (it's kinda of a secret) namely his father, Patrol Leader Jagrin Grath.


Kurst says


"Yes, you may see the body. It is being kept up at the Sanctuary until the funeral. Also you may have access to the room. I was about to question Cham Larringfass on what she found this morning, but when I seen her in the state she was, I couldn't bring myself to ask her to repeat everything she saw. I was hoping you could. I was gonna go question a couple more people as well, Brinya Kelver. She is a half-orc that Rodrick had been seeing. They were to married in a few weeks. Few people know about this. Probably the better. Some around town don't see the "hero" guard & a "orc" married as a sign of good things for Turuan. I myself had no problems with it. Love who you want, if it makes you happy. My father on the other hand was furious but he didn't let the knowledge out. I guess dad was embarrassed his son was "sleeping with the enemy" so to speak. There is also one other person. Omast Frum. He is a fellow militia man, actually he is a patrol sargent but he is a long time friend of the family & also was Rodrick's long time patrol partner. He might shed some light on what may have led up to Rodrick's su..eh Oh I won't believe it!" 


He tries to say sucide but can only say the first syllable.


"My brother would not commit suicide! He had so many things to look forward to, his upcoming marriage, a new poem he said he was writing. He loved being part of the town. He want to see the day we weren't attacked by orcs, giants, whatever lives beyond our border!" 


The young captain's voice raises to the point that the people in the commons have stopped talking & are now eyeing the man.


"I am sorry, everyone."


he says & everyone resumes what they were doing.


"Also, I'd like you to look into this".


He reaches into a jacket pocket & produces a bloody hopeknife.


"This is the weapon that my brother used. This was the only one in the room, so it must have been his. You can have it for the investigation, but I will need to back for the funeral."


"I would be in your debt if you could find out the truth here. Is there anything else you need to know?"


"If you need to get in touch with

Maybe Riiki not talk to lady about what she saw. Some people not comfortable talking to Riiki." As if to emphasize his point he made a motion towards his very large, seemingly unblinking eyes as the clear lenses of an amphibian flashed back and forth a couple of times, and complete lack of human facial expressions

      Here is the latest of my Pathfinder figures that I painted: Barzillai Thrune (#60205). 
      I sculpted this figure last year and he was newly available at ReaperCon 2017.  If you go to ReaperCon this year, you can see this figure in person.
      As with Octavio Sabinus (link to my Show-Off thread), Barzillai also appears in the Pathfinder Adventure Path "Hell's Rebels" as a major NPC: link to cover image of #97. (Wayne Reynolds painted the cover art.  The armor makes me think of a shark.)
      Barzillai is the new lord-mayor in Kintargo, and his notions of law and order are going to provoke a lot of resentment, especially from the PCs!
      I wanted the base to evoke a city under siege, so I sculpted the stone rubble out of Aves Apoxie Sculpt, and stuck some toothpicks in as stakes.

      OK everyone.
      As promised, I want to jump into the Pathfinder 2nd edition playtest.
      I can't pass up on a free "Superdungeon."
      I want 4 players.  For the sake of the Playtest, let's not duplicate races or classes.
      The rulebook is available for free download at www.paizo.com.
      I hope to update pretty frequently.
      Attributes are not rolled!
      For the Module, you have to pick a Background from the following list.
      Budding Osirionologist: The secrets buried in the seemingly endless sands of the nation of Osirion have long intrigued you, even though you've never actually visited the nation.  Some day, you hope to correct that.
        Choose two ability boosts. One must be Dexterity or Intelligence, and one is a free ability boost.
        You gain the Terrain Stalker (Rubble) Feat, and you're trained in the Ancient Osirion Lore skill.
      Esoteric Scion: One of your family members belongs to a semisecret society called the Esoteric Order of the Palatine Eye.  You've long held an interest in perhaps some day joining the order and have studied the strange topics in preparation for that day.
         Choose two ability boosts. One must be Intelligence or Wisdom, and one is a free ability boost.
         You gain the Quick Identification Feat, and you're trained in the Esoteric Order Lore skill.
      Family Friend: Your family has been friends with the Deverins of Magnimar for a generation, and you've grown accustomed to hobnobbing with the aristocracy even if you have little or no interest in such matters.
         Choose two ability boosts.  One must be Charisma or Intelligence, and one is a free ability boost.
         You gain the Hobnobber Feat, and you're trained in the Nobility Lore skill
      Goblin Renegade: You had been working with a gang of goblin burglars, but that new leader was not good.  It took a lot of guts to stand up to him, but you survived!  Now you're stuck with the longshanks, but maybe you can get back at the old boss.
         Choose two ability boosts.  One must be Dexterity or Charisma, and one is a free ability boost.
         You gain the Quick Repair feat, and you're trained in the Criminal Lore skill.
      Mind Quake Survivor: As a child, you once woke from a particularly harrowing nightmare, and this nightmare has plagued you ever since.  You've had strange thoughts and knowledge that you always felt wren't truly your own.
         Choose two ability boosts.  One must be to Constitution or Wisdom, and one is a free ability boost.
         You gain the Dubious Knowledge feat, and you're trained in the Dominion of the Black Lore skill..
      Pathfinder Hopeful: You've long wanted to join the adventurous Pathfinder Society, a world-spanning organization of relic hunters.  This aspiration has led you to take up the dangerous life of an adventurer eager to make a name for  yourself and gain the attention of the Pathfinder Society.
          Choose two ability boosts.  One must be to Strength or Intelligence, and one is a free ability boost.
          You gain the Additional Lore feat, and you're trained in the Pathfinder Society Lore skill.

      I now have an idea of what I want for the campaign - warring Seasonal Lords - with Spring and Autumn remaining neutral.
      One idea is to build in some forks via the encounter tables - with one result on the standard encounter table being a Unique Encounter - which happens once - but sets up the next Unique Encounter, so that a given series of Unique Events occurs sequentially..
      Seasons are tied to the elements - Spring = Water; Summer = Fire; Autumn = Earth; Winter = Air.
      The area has no churches, and no clerics - but does have witches and druids. If a PC is a cleric then he or she is 'from away' - and is never entirely trusted.
      I think that I may have the campaign traits tied to plot secrets.
      Anyway - ideas?
      The start of one song from the background -
      Iron axe and iron blade,
      Each shall slay a faerie babe.
      With each an aelphling child must die,
      Hush, my baby, don't you cry....
      That the mere presence of mankind, dwarfkind, and others is killing the fey - and that those races view it as a good thing.
      One inspiration - for me, but not to be included with the adventure is Joseph Rodman Drake's The Culprit Fay (1819)
      (Spoilered, because long 19th Century poem that may not interest anybody else)

      Finally finished her, she was the last of a bunch of a handful pathfinder miniatures I had ordered awhile back. Not really satisfied with how she came out, she turned into a absolute nightmare while painting and just had to say done. I don't usually like to paint the same figure twice but this time think I'll have to revisit her.
