"Why should we trust a talking sword?"


You all get a sense that the sword is trustworthy, is telling the truth and has good motives. Insight check for Daggoth, Mal, Ravenblade, Salazar and Hedoni (1d20+4=21, 1d20+3=23, 1d20+7=14, 1d20+8=25, 1d20+7=22)

"Ah, now I remember. The Wicked Fang gnolls. Yeah, let's go. The Freeriders are already going to overlook to deal with Sarshan. We may be the only ones that know about these gnolls."

"Agreed. We should take care of these gnolls. Plus, they probably have some nice equipment we can return to safer hands."

"I don't know if I can take another fight tonight" Daggoth grumbles while gripping his axe.

OOC: Think I only have 2 surges left. Meat shield duties may be re-designated as required.

"I don't think you want to throw those, friends. Let's all sit down and talk about this."

OOC: We've all had an extended rest - probably a few of them. Full power go!

OOC: Correct, you have had several extended rests and are fresh. But that doesn't mean you need to fight.

"Now, wait here. If you are related to those we fought several days ago...they attacked us. We didn't mean us harm, but they gave us no choice but to fight back."

"That's right!" Salazar agrees. "We weren't looking for trouble, but if you people try to mug travelers, you should expect some of them to fight back. It's not the safest line of work, you know."

"I've traveled that desert dozens of times," Salazar says, "and I've never seen your people there before. How were we to know you had any claim on that land? It looked like any other patch of desert I've ever seen."

"Hmmm....interesting...." muses Ravenblade out loud, with a far-off look and obviously pre-occupided.

OOC: Sorry, but I'm paying 40 cents for this post and just wanted to tell you guys I WILL NOT be posting at all until Sunday evening. Gary, please play as Ravenblade and Alysandra. Josh, please play as Alfred. Gotta go, have fun!

"I saw no tracks anywhere near our path, nor any signs at all of humanoid habitation," Ravenblade says. "If you want to mark your territory, there are lots of ways to do it, you know."

Daggoth stamps his foot impudently.

"You are fools for trying to avenge your bretheren, when it is they who were the aggressors! Should we have forfeited our lives just because they decided to attack us? Attack us now and we will respond as we did then!"

With the last word Daggoth bashes his axe again his shield hard enough for sparks to fly.

The shifter seems taken a back by Daggoth's foot stamping. He says defensively "Our tribe is honorable and we defend what is ours. You were the transgressors."

"Honorable? Defend? Since when is charging coin to pass through a random patch of desert 'defending'?" Salazar asks. "I've traveled the world, and most places I've been that's called anything from a mugging to a toll, depending on if it's government sponsored or not."

Listening to their words, Ravenblade tries to gauge if there's more these shifters aren't saying.

The shifter replies patiently "In the Thornwaste, our ways are the law. We always follow tradition. When we demand a toll, it must be paid."

Ravenblade can sense that these Razorclaw tribesmen have a strict honor code. It will be hard to get them to back down without allowing them to save face or find a compromise that works within their code of conduct.

Primary skills: Diplomacy, Intimidate, Insight, Bluff
Secondary skills: Nature, Religion, History
Secondary skills can only be used once, but give a +3 bonus to the subsequent skill roll.
