Outside the Demonic Studies Department...

Vincent goes for a spot of that old homewreckin'! He attacks the weakened bars with his halberd!

[Homewrecking roll: 1]

His halberd breaks in two as he strikes the metal frame! Well, isn't that just dandy! Guess these bars must be tougher than Vincent thought! That, or the metallurgy on those halberds really could use some work.


In a dark alley...

Samuel tries to go good-cop on the poor damaged cane-guard!

[Nonverbal communication roll: 3]

Samuel realizes that there's no effective way to convey information of any positive sensation to a thing that has no ability to see or hear! Well, crap. What would a cane like, anyway?

[Intelligence roll: ?]

Maybe a good polish? Not getting pummeled into a piece of trash? Oh well. Too late for that, it seems!


Outside the burning Life Studies Department...

James attempts to abduct his target from the crowd!

[Abduction roll: 5]

He effortlessly sneaks up to the fellow and drags him off to a dark corner out of sight! He proceeds to attempt to intimidate him!

[Intimidation roll: 2]

"Boo, I am a ghost from the future! You'll be dead, and stuff!"

The man looks questioningly. Crap, better skip to the beavergoating.

[Beavergoating roll: 5]

He immediately begins to beavergoat the man quite thoroughly! At the very beginning, the man is mystified by James' actions, but his face quickly becomes a mask of horror when the procedure starts!

"OH GODS WHY? WHYYY?"

After a twenty minute session, the man is left white as a sheet, hairless and completely and utterly dead. James congratulates himself on a job well done! That'll teach him to take all the possessions of an aspiring gambler!


Inside the mausoleum...

Jordan tries to loot Bernie's mausoleum!

[Looting roll: 6]

He finds an odd wall! A very odd wall. IT MUST FALL AT ONCE!

[Homewrecking roll: 4]

Using the blunt end of his axe as a sledgehammer, Jordan smashes through the wall in about an hour of work! Behind it is an untouched burial chamber of some kind, built in a completely different style from the rest of the mausoleum! Considerably older, too, by the looks of it.

Loot his corpse, and look on the map for a good place in the university to go.

Inside a peculiar burial chamber...

Jordan gets into that classic adventuring spirit and gets to looting!

[Looting roll: 1]

He tries to take the axe to a nearby sarcophagus, but, as soon as the intention enters his mind, he hears a noise from the darkness!

"Co-ome he-ere, frie-end!"

"I say, that is most unusual!"

[Intelligence roll: ?]

"I do believe it would be quite dangerous to listen to this chap, though! He sounds most unsavory!"


At the scene of a gruesome beavergoating...

James decides to loot the fellow's corpse!

[Loot roll: 3]

He doesn't appear to have much, really! Probably because he is in his nightshirt! It is a nice silk nightshirt, however! James pulls it off the unfortunate man!

[Building choice roll: 3]

The Theeollogee Deppartemennte sounds pretty crazy, with "arrtikels offe fayth" this and "cullte shrinnes" that! He looks for it immediately!

[Search roll: 1+1]

He'll be damned if he can find the blasted place, though.

Look for a different building on map, find.

Samuel's just going to take his cane and, *sigh*, ask some street kid or something where the royal palace is. If he gives some information, give him a half dozen copper pieces or something.

Outside the Demonic Studies Department...

Vincent decides to knock on the door again! Maybe they didn't hear him the first time, mages being the deaf bastards Vincent knows them to be! He knocks three times!

[Reaction roll: 4]

A squeaky female voice answers!

"Yes? What do you want? I hope you're not one of those... those savages!"


Inside a strange tomb...

Jordan needs some action! And if approaching some horrible thing in the darkness inside a tomb is the only way to get it then, by the gods, some very angry approaching is about to be done! He readies his axe and steps forward!

"Ri-ight, goo-ood. You-ou are wi-ise to do as I tell you!"

[Approach roll: 3]

Jordan feels a sort of vague darkness encroaching on his very being as he gets closer!


In an alley of some kind...

Samuel tries to find a streetwise urchin to grill for information!

[Search roll: 6]

However, there is no need, for he is already surrounded by them!

"Eh, who are you? What you doin' here?"

[Nonverbal communication roll: 4]

Samuel writes down his need to find the Royal Palace!

[Literary eloquence roll: 5]

I require the location of the Royal Palace. If you can point me in the right direction, I will give you money. If you don't, let's just say that I am a wizard.

[Reaction roll: 5]

"Royal Palace, eh? Alright, we'll take ya there, never fear!"

Samuel is escorted through multiple alleys, streets and even buildings for the better part of an hour before the entire group stops in front of a truly magnificent stone structure that towers over the rest of the city! At least a dozen guards are posted in front of it!

"'Ere we are. Royal Palace, no questions asked."

Samuel hands the children six copper pieces!

"Thanks, man. Pleasure doin' business!"

They run off, presumably to spend their ill-gotten gains!


Somewhere on university grounds...

James decides to look for something else! Damn that Theology Department!

[Building choice roll: 2]

He chooses the Fayte Deppartemennte!

[Search roll: 3+1]

He finds it without much difficulty, since the building is far easier to spot than the Theology Department! Or at least that's what James tells himself!

[Security measures roll: 2]

This place is barricaded up to the roof! Holy hell.

Sam's going to puzzle over how the hell nobody cares that he's a skeleton, and then practice his...Non-verbal communication skills.

Swing the axe around, trying to hit anything dangerous, and slowly keep moving forwards.

Near the Royal Palace...

Samuel tries to think of a reason why anybody bothers speaking to him instead of, say, screaming incoherently!

[Intelligence roll: ?]

It's quite difficult to say, really. As saddening as it may be, it is most definitely not his winning personality, though.

Before he gets too depressed from contemplation, Samuel decides to practice his communication skills on some passing victims!

[Passing victim roll: 5]

An amiable-looking gentleman walks down the street! Samuel accosts him with charades!

[Practice roll: 3]

The game of charades that follows is somewhat invigorating, but the gentleman is possessed of a certain lack of imagination, Samuel guesses! And somewhat poor eyesight as well! There is only so much he can learn from this fellow!


Inside a horrible tomb with horrible things...

Jordan, tired of the incessant dark, tries to slice through it!

"I say, would you care for an invigorating game of backgammon?"

"Why-y ye-es! Backgammon is my-y fa-avorite ga-ame in the wo-orld! Ho-ow, did yo-ou gue-"

[Jordan vs. Darkness: 1+2 vs. 2+3-2-1]

Jordan clumsily swings through the darkness, aiming to hit something out of sight!

"Ou-ow! That hu-urt! Yo-ou should be ca-areful with tha-at!"

[Darkness vs. Jordan: 2+3 vs. 2-1]

Whatever it is, it devours Jordan's pretzel-arm entirely! Man, it must have been hungry!

Outside the Demonic Studies Department...

Vincent, unable to provide an intelligible answer to the woman inside the department, chooses to walk about and loot something else instead!

[Search roll: 5]

He finds a building marked "Official Artifact Vault of the University of Magic". Ooh, sweet! Bet that has a load of loot inside!

Ask if he has a Backgammon board. Maybe we could play later. Then keep slicing!
