Double Penetration, Game recap from 6/2/13.

Game Recap (of sorts) 6/2/13: Double Penetration with a touch of Asphyxiation.

A plan is made to infiltrate the fort during Baroness Pavetta Stroon-Drelev’s birthday party. Gunnar will go as Satinder Mourne’s companion. When asked how he wanted to be addressed, he replied, it doesn’t matter. He should have guessed something fun would happen by the way she smirked.

At the door he was introduced as Jesep Mourne, Santinder’s brother. It is implied, and assumed by many, that he is “in the family business.” He soon gets the attention of the Baroness and is asked to be her birthday present and is escorted to a private room to await her, he asks for a bath to be drawn and food and drink are provided.

While this is going on, Barabus makes his way to the secret tunnel and starts to penetrate, errrr, infiltrate the keep. Finding the remains of the guards and their prostitute diversions, he goes into super stealth mode, and soon finds and has to deal with a family of black puddings. He leads them out of the tunnels and luckily Shun-Sui is there, and is able to kite them away, and cause a fight between the black puddings and the patrolling giants. Chaos ensues, and in the process most of the contingent of giants are dealt with. While Shun-Sui is dealing the puddings above ground, Barabus uses a summoned fire elemental to stall the puddings below ground. With the aid of a second larger fire elemental from Shun-Sui, the black puddings are able to be passed. Barabus makes his way into the keep.

After picking some locks, and by picking I mean blowing the shit out of, he is able to get into the keep proper, and soon discovers the cell holding, Lord Numesti. He is in poor condition, and Barabus decides it best to leave him there, with promises of a return. He uses invisibility and makes his way to the upper most reaches of the tower where he discovers a half naked Gunnar preparing to take a bath?? WTF?

After a quick meeting of the minds, Gunnar informs Barabus that he has discovered the lady Quintessa Maray tied up in the next room and that after he questioned her, he choked her to unconsciousness, because she was obviously a liar!!! Barabus decides to use his portable hole as a bunker and places it under the Lady Maray’s bed, to await the Baron so that he can murder him, leaving Gunnar to contend with the Baroness.

Liestra is contacted by Saif, stating that he believes that her brother might be compromised. It is hard to explain but the connections have been severed and things have felt, “off”. After some verification of Astor, by some well placed history questions, Astor is believed to be himself, and he and Saif are able to talk.

An assissination attempt on Saif a few nights ago by “our old friend”. People are on the move, things are getting frantic in the city. People are returning to their homes, should he go deeper? He is worried that something wicked is happening, some evil plot against Stagfell. He is told to delve deeper, but stay safe. They confirm plans for future nightly meetings, and the link is broke.

Not long after, the Baron walks through Lady Maray’s room and right into the room where Gunnar is and makes a proposal. “Kill my wife the baroness, escape down through the secret tunnel, kill the man in the cell down there, and you may keep the riches in a certain chest in the treasury, as well as this sack of gold”, which he tosses down on the table. A promise that Gunnar will not be hunted or found guilty of the crime is also included. After Gunnar gives a not so certain answer of yes, the Baron turns and leaves and heads back to his room, where he retrieves and item and then brings it back to the lady Maray’s room, where he begins to “use it on her, in a way that appears sexual.”

In the meantime, the baroness makes her entrance and makes a proposal to Gunnar. “Kill the Baron, leave through the secret tunnel. Leave the man in the cells below alive, but you may take some of the treasure, but most is needed to help rebuild the town. Do this and you will be a hero, you will not be hunted, no trial, and you will not be punished.” Gunnar wants to protect her so he chokes her to unconsciousness.

About this time Barabus pops out of the portable hole, and assassinates the Baron. He returns to Gunnar and see’s the choked out Baroness, WTF?? Picking up the unconscious lady Maray, and the unconscious Baroness, and by use of magic they jump from the upper most windows and float down into the wooded area below, where Shun-Sui is dealing with the last two giants. Laying the women down, they join the fray. Barabus is hurt, but they win the day.

As they are walking back to the women, a man appears from above, and makes a comment about his plans succeeding and unleashes magic into the group. Another fight ensues, but the group, though wounded, is able to pull through. Imeckus Stroon, the Baroness’s brother, appears to have been the master mind behind everything.

The keeps guards are able to surround the group, but a man steps forward. Brandon Riecher, he has served with Gunnar, a long time ago. He vouches for Gunnars integrity and honesty, and states that he should be entitled to be heard. The women awake, fearful of Gunnar, both with stories of how he CHOKED THEM

About this time Astor and Liestra are wondering how the party is going.

game ends here…
