rust Posted April 9, 2011 Report Share Posted April 9, 2011 In the current Carelan campaign the characters have been assigned the task to free some important prisoners from the castle at the town of Morragen. The group's scholar is sent to scout the castle, to learn as much as he can about the number of guards and their equipment, and if possible to contact one of the prisoners. He walks up to the guard at the castle's gate and tells him: "Good Man, I am one of the rebels who want to free your prisoners. We would like to know how many guards you have here, and what equipment they have. Would you be so kind to raise an alarm, so I can get an impression of this ?" He is of course arrested and thrown into the dungeon, and the other players sta- re at the scholar's player in utter disbelief. The player smiles and explains that his character now knows the guards and their equipment and the interior layout of the castle, and that he has the opportunity to talk to the prisoners. And in the next morning he will tell the bailiff that he was drunk, wanted to make an admittedly silly joke, and now regrets this and is willing to pay a fine before he is set free. Well, I have to play the bailiff, and I really do not know how to handle this. It is incredibly stupid and in a strange way brilliant at the same time, and I have no idea how my bailiff should react to this: Hang the man or let him go ? What would you do with this insane scholar ? Quote "Mind like parachute, function only when open." (Charlie Chan) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
