Several People You Meet Beyond The Pale

 Aftermath of the Battle of Wyvern Fort Staging Area


I’m assuming that you:

  1. separate the prisoners, do a pat-down search, separate them from their goodies (Sgt. Crick will strongly suggest that each person have a separate pile for their stuff - "It’s sounding like some of these folk might-ways be friends if we treat ‘em right, so we’d not want to go pilferin’ right off, and we’d want to be able to give our new Chums their own back. Anyway, one of the cleaver lads or lasses can also look over their piles and get a hint that their truthful…or not")
  2. use the folks that Estaya identifies as "friendlies" for corroboration of individual stories as well as an additional security element (armed but watched by a few of your own). The names you will get will be from them, as well as cross-corroboration other Mercs and Elementalists; and
  3. run up a detect Magic Spell or several over the goods and folks. More might be found by those making some good Spot Hidden Rolls (or even with simply successful Spot Hidden rolls allied with a successful Concealment roll).


The Dead


  • Maynard- a mature male Wyvern, SIZ 34. Cause of Death: lighting bolts as well as XHCB & Clothyard arrows.

  • Capt. Josef Kaltwell (RA Tenth Legion (ret.)) TyrMal late 20’s (Steel & Sapphire) SIZ 17. Overall goods, grooming, and gear gives an appearance of a certain elegance and tendency to display verging on the ostentatious for a Martial Caste Tyr. Cause of Death: various forms of penetrative, blunt, and electrical trauma. Dressed in traveling leathers/ arming clothes. A very fancy belt w/ matching scabbard for a bastard sword, a large dagger (still in its matching sheath), and a matching loop hanger with a finely made horseman’s mace hanging in it. A large wallet, and a medium purse w/ well-used tamper evident “Screamer” re-usable seal (19L, 50S, 1D, & 1shiny P).

Broadsword and parrying dagger. Large wallet and small purse (2L, 6S, 9D). The wallet contains some basic sorcerers’ gear, a real fine calligraphy set, some very nice carving tools, and some other gear that Estaya is not sure about: it doesn’t look like traditional sorcerers’ props & tools (spools of fine threads & yarns of unknown animal hair, a small (150ml off-white ceramic jar of golden-colored paste (P- 152)), but is of uniform high quality, carefully stored, and organized for easy access. Also, an exotic hardwood stick carefully carved w/ some very tiny glyphs, and GJ-132 a lead bracelet heavily carved with tiny abstract work.

Other Notes


  • You find yourselves in a wrecked fort, recently made habitable, and now not so habitable, after the AIr Elemental, the Toad Sick, and the battle. Generally, the Mercs were recruited first, and spent time setting up the fort, running supplies, etc. -- all done via HellWalk. Then most went back and helped gather Sorcerers, some of whom were kept in town, other joined en route. Then the gang HellWalked near here, and has been waiting mostly since.


  • A strongbox with some heavy locks, and an obvious Seal, that detects as having about 10 kg of gold and 20 kg of silver.
