@gaijinkaiju "N-not hiding, just investigating but..." I sigh heavily as if annoyed "I would much prefer to look through documents and books than having to ask these people questions, as for the Half-Elf, we could always use more reinforcements so I see little to deny his assistance."

@Kaleion "Perhaps the wizard tower might have some books or scrolls that could be of use in that case. Might i suggest you and Ashe investigate there instead, and leave the guards to Rosh and I?"

@Arnox can I perform a persuasison check on the guards?

Little busy today to respond more in depth so @gaijinkaiju "Lets see what we can get out of those boys then mate" Rosh stands by Siegfried while he tries to persuade the guards for a bit more info.

@Arnox So, Im guessing I was wrong in thinking that I had to wait another turn to respond?

Ashe gives Siegfried a firm handshake before stepping back. With a light bow he speaks to the group

@Group: "Please forgive my forwardness, I am Ashe, at your service."

He turns to Eleria, clearly pleased

@gaijinkaiju "I must agree with Siegfried, these aren't Guards aren't my type of people. Let us investigate the Wizards Tower."

Ashe moves for the Door beckoning Eleria to follow

You can talk as much as you like and move as much as you like (out of combat), but if you do something that requires DM attention, your actions end until the next turn.

@Kaleion @Monoochrom - You head over to the Wizard's tower but quickly find it blocked by some more bored looking guards. They're not gonna let you in, seeing as there are valuables in the tower still and they say it's been searched anyway.

@gaijinkaiju @Battousai - Persuasion check - (Going by Siegfried's Persuasion score since he has the highest.) Right off the bat, when Siegfried begins talking to the guard captain, an annoyed expression quickly crosses his face and he soon cuts him off. "All you bounty hunters are the same! You can't just read the damn poster. You gotta waste my time. I don't know anything more, now go away!" (Ability check breakdown: 1 + 2 + 2 = 5 vs DC 20)

@Guard captain "Right, listen here. You're going to tell us what we need to know or I'm going to have to show my dwarf friend here how good i am with this here sword" Suggested Siegfried, a hint of annoyance of in his voice. "you're clearly not doing anything about the kidnapping crisis, so why don't you help us out at the bare minimum, eh?

@Arnox i'll do an intimidation check on the guard captain

Ashe approaches one of the Guards, slyly signaling to Eleria to keep a few feet of Distance. He quietly (so that Eleria wouldn't hear) speaks to one of the Guards

"Terribly sorry to bother you again. You see, the truth is that I am simply smitten with the young lady accompanying me." he says, slightly nodding in Elerias direction

"I really just hope to impress her, if you'd just let us take a look for a scant few minutes you'd be helping me immensly and I'd gladly give you a few Gold for your troubles."

@Arnox I'm trying to decieve him. I believe that would at least be appropriate.

I just stare at them rather confused and trying to not look too awkward, even though I'd rather not deal with this shit.

@gaijinkaiju @Battousai - Intimidation check - Your verbal threat... Doesn't go unnoticed in the Knight's Quarters. If you didn't draw looks to you both before, you did now with the entire Knight's Quarter's falling silent. Soon, the guard captain smirks nastily as some guards around you (five in all) slowly began to advance, closing off the exit. "I would choose your next words VERRYYY carefully... " (Ability check breakdown: 2 + 11 = 13 vs DC 30)

@Kaleion @Monoochrom - Deception check - While the guard looks a little sympathetic to your cause, he again denies you. "I'm sorry but I cannot risk anyone unauthorized entering at all. If something powerful went missing, it would be my head, and possibly would spell disaster for the town." (Ability check breakdown: 2 + 2 + 9 = 13 vs DC 18)

(I wouldn't really be worrying about information here, guys. Not with this campaign anyway. There's a twist, but it will be revealed soon enough, and you guys are too low level to be doing these tougher kinds of skill checks.)

Ashe, annoyed, cordially takes his leave from the guards and returns to Eleria.

@Kaleion "Well, 'twas worth trying for, but I don't see us gaining anymore information here...at least not legitimately." He says gazing back at the Tower. "What do you propose we do?"

Siegfried having eyed out the room, whispers down to Rosh @Battousai" I have two plans, neither are good. Do you have any plans for our situation or do you trust me?" Siegfried moves his hand to his side, just in-case things get worse

Rosh smirks at Siegfried, and nods at him to look at his back and winks. He's already grasping one of his axes with a bit of anticipation and whispers back to Siegfried @gaijinkaiju "Oh I have a pretty good idea of what I want to do mate, but I'll follow your lead on this, these boys seem a bit scared."

@guards " I imagine you all have families, yes? Perhaps a wife and kids?" Siegfried pauses briefly " Have you ever seen what happens to villages when evil arrives?"
Siegfried shifts his gaze to the guard captains firmly locking eye contact with him @Guard captain "I have. More than once. I've seen the chaos, the destruction...the bloodshed. You and your guards act tough, and you're probably used to the occasional fight against humans, yes? But what happens when its the undead, or what about demons? What happens when you see you're loved ones torn apart right in-front of you? I've seen many a guard falter when confronted with that very sight. If you know whats right you'll let us leave and deal with this, before its too late.

@Monoochrom "I think we should just move on, after all we're wasting time and I don't think acquiring it through "illegitimate" means is going to be worth the trouble, so we should look for Siegfried, Rosh & Eneva so we can start heading out."

@Battousai @gaijinkaiju - The guard captain narrows his gaze at Siegfried but relaxes his posture somewhat, as do the rest of the guards. "Well, what the fuck do you think we're trying to do here? If you're really that concerned for the well-being of this town, then maybe don't pick fights with those who want to protect it. As it stands though, we've ordered another contingent of soldiers in case things get ugly, but the latest word from the field says all amassing of enemy activity has weirdly stopped. In the meantime, we can do no more besides put the town on alert. Well, that and start putting up bounties. But to answer your original question... Again, we know nothing more. Now please, let us be." With that, he turns around to the map on the table he was studying with another guard as the others around you also begin to disperse.
