Murder’s Mark, Pathfinder 1e Module

Recommended Posts

"Wouldn't be the first time that I've seen a performance sabotaged."  Karl gets a far away look in he eyes as if remembering something.

 

"Still, none were hurt and things are back on track.  I wouldn't worry about it, other than to just keep a closer eye than normal on things in case someone is out to cause trouble.  You might want to let your boss know about the person who paid you the gold.  Just so that if this wasn't an accident, she can pass the word to be on the look out for more trouble.  In fact if you tell us about who payed you, perhaps we can help keep a look out as well."  he looks around for confirmation from the others.

 

Karl continues to try and calm down the panotti. Diplomacy (13+7)=20

“It was a tall human with a big red fluffy beard!”  After relaying that I do to the rest of the crew, no one remembers seeing anyone of that description.  They make sure to pass off the info to the boss.

 

He appreciates your soothing words and calm demeanor.  He is quite consoled.

"we should find someplace private. I would see each of you get's your equal share of our reward, but for reasons I am sure you can understand, do not wish to hand out such coin where others might see"

Karl stand up and dusts himself and his coat off.  He checks it for any signs of major damage and then puts it on.

 

"Well, that was invigorating!  Well met, I am Karl Ritvason, and I would be proud to call such brave souls as yourselves as friends."

 

"I am Darkaya Zirvem, a servant to the gods of protection & battle. I apologize for the random touch on the shoulder but seeing you doff your jacket, I figured you needed the extra protection."

As you approach, the panotti raises his head.  He turns his head so his massive ears fall back behind each shoulder.  He sniffles a little.  “Hel...Hello.  You’re so brave!  Thank you for helping with our baby dragon.  I just froze, I’m not brave like you.”  He pauses.

 

"Think nothing of it, the incident happened in the past. The creature is contained & unharmed. Just watch it a bit better next time." She smiles afterwards.

Guests start making their way home.  You should probably try to find accommodations for the night, unless you have other people you want to seek out to talk to.

Aronan has remained quiet throughout most of the ordeal, only speaking once to introduce himself. He has remained with the group, and nods in agreement when it is suggested that they go somewhere out of the way.

What kind of inns are in town? I suggest we find one & stay close, just in case we are needed again.

You make your way to Two Water Tavern.  It’s busy and popular with locals and visitors alike.  The proprietress Noria Arephion is gentle Human woman and has a welcoming smile.  A few burly regulars seem like they are also bouncers and bodyguards.  She only has one room left, so you all have to pile in.  She has two beds, and arranges for two mattresses to be put on the floor.  For the room and dinner and breakfast she charges 3 GP for the four of you.

Karl secures his belongings in the room and makes himself presentable for dining.  after chatting with his new found friends, he suggests that they all go down and avail themselves of the dinner and try and find out more about what has been going on in town and at the carnival.

 

"For if there is one thing that flows more freely than ale at a tavern, it's rumors."

I'll head down with the rest of the group & will train my ears to the word of mouth.

You hear a few rumors.

 

1. Watch your back, friends. Varisians would just as soon gut you in a back alley for sport as smile to your face while picking your pockets.

 

2. The Town council is going to appoint a new member soon.

 

3. Sczarni dread lords are interested in our city.

 

4.  If you are looking for a good time, I can score you some Shiver.

 

5.  Our Sheriff is one of those half-angels.

 

6. There have been pirates harassing the river barges.

 

7. All Varisians are vampire spawn, owing to their taint being mixed up with the Whispering Tyrant.

 

8.  When the carnival was here last was 2 years ago.  They were much smaller then.

The next morning, as you eat breakfast, you overhear  a few locals gossiping about a murder.  A few moments later, a frantic carnival crew member comes through the inn’s front door, panting and sweaty as if he ran the whole distance.  When he sees you, he smooths himself over and takes a deep breath to regain his composure.  In a thick Varisian accent he says “pardon milords and lady.  My mistress Almara formally requests your presence at her private wagon this morning for an urgent job opportunity.”  He waits around for your answer, hoping to lead you back there personally.

      A small group of Goblins to use as opponents in Sellsword & Spellslingers or any other game.

      Well, in case you haven't noticed, I'm on a bit of a goblin streak. Those pyros were fun, but now it's the Pathfinder Goblin Warriors!
       
      As I did previously, I took a picture of them out in the backyard, just to see how they'd look in as realistic of an environment as it's gonna get, another in my little "Mini pictures area" (Spoiler: It's literally just my desk with a piece of white paper behind it. Sorry to ruin the magic! ), and lastly one of my favorite goblin. Any constructive criticism is welcome!
       
      Sidenote: I'm still not confident enough to try out eyes. I'll get to that eventually.

      The Cleric in my D&D group leveled up and acquired the Spiritual Guardian skill. He needed a model to represent his Guardian. Honaire looks so cool, but he didn't have a shield. I found one in my bits box, and painted the symbol of his chosen Deity, Chauntea. I loved painting this because the simple palette left more room to just relax and enjoy the work.

      I don't actually have a "Shelf of Shame" of half-finished miniatures like some painters do, but if I did, this figure could have been on it.
      I sculpted Ulf Gormundr for Reaper's licensed Pathfinder line in late 2012.  Ulf is a character in the "Jade Regent" Adventure Path. 
      Although I have painted almost every one of the figures I've sculpted, I neglected to paint Ulf and a few others, mostly from 2012-2014.  Probably it was because Martin Jones was working as Reaper's staff painter and giving them good paint jobs for the gallery as soon as each figure was released.
      Several years ago, I prepped this metal casting of Ulf but then put it aside.  I removed the moldlines, patched a little pit in the handaxe, clipped away and bent the wolf-pelt leg (which is attached to pommel of the sword in the original casting) to make the overall pose a little more dynamic, and twisted his sword slightly out-of-plane for the same reason.
       
      Despite the sheltering-in-place over the past eight weeks, I haven't painted or sculpted much (er... anything).  My painting area had gotten even dustier than usual.  I resolved to paint something this week.
      I poked around my painting area, found the prepped-but-unpainted Ulf, and spent a few late-night sessions painting him.
      The color scheme is the "official" one -- from the portrait by Wayne Reynolds on the cover of Adventure Path #51, plus the shield design by another artist in the interior of AP #50 (I don't know who, but there are several artists listed in the credits and I could rule out a few; does anyone out there know?). 
      The figure has some complicated layering of clothing and armor and gear (but I actually simplified Wayne Reynolds's design a bit for the miniature).  I made it even more fiddly with freehand textures.
       
      For the base, I glued the figure to a plastic base, sculpted a layer of putty over the top (including his last footprint behind him), painted it blue and white to look like snow, and glued on a "Winter Tuft" grass product.  I cut the smallest tuft into 3 sub-tufts because I didn't want to hide his legs behind a big clump of grass, especially in the front view.
       
      Enjoy!

      Here is Zadim, Iconic Slayer from the Pathfinder Iconics stretch goal to the core set. He was sculpted by Bobby Jackson and is also available in metal sku 60179. I kept pretty well to the Wayne Reynolds artwork for the colour scheme.
