A Discovery

Date: 6pm Friday, April 14, 1651
Location: Koufonisia
Weather: a gentle breeze from the southwest, with pleasant weather and light fluffy clouds in the sky. Feels like 18 C (64 F).


Having paid for the journey, the party arrives in Koufonisia in the early evening.  For the second day's journey from Hora, you have a little company on board ship, a fellow named Akydemos, who describes himself as half-Turkish, half-Greek, and on the whole the blessing of two parents who never did get along.  He is an itinerant boat-builder, bound for Koufonisia to seek a little work repairing fishing vessels, as he has been unable to find further work in Hora for some weeks now.  He has his tools with him and you find him good and friendly company.

In Koufonisia, once you dock, you send word and soon Tazio comes to meet you.  He tells you that the diggings are going quite well, that the portents he has seen the locals perform has encouraged the town to believe it will be a good year for farming and that he is pleased to be doing this sort of work. He's never had this sort of authority before and it is turning out that he quite likes it.

Unfortunately, it isn't long before you hear that the locals don't much like him.  He has an 8 charisma and he is wearing thin on the populace.  On several occasions he has lost his temper and he is most insulting of anyone who does not listen immediately to anything he says.

What with one thing or another, you conduct a little business, have your stuff moved off the boat and to your places of rest, field questions from the townspeople, hear about Tazio, get a little to eat and finally, before sunset around 7:51pm, you return to your sleeping places.

And there you will find on Kismet's bed, an open bundle of blanketing, in the middle of which is laying a broadsword.  Atop the broadsword, wrapped in a piece of twine, is a small scroll, about four inches long and a half-inch thick.  The broadsword does not look like a modern European weapon.  The lines, the shape, the bronze handle, the shaping and etching on the bronze handle, these things indicate that the weapon is very much made to look as though it were from Ancient Rome.  The blade seems very sound, however, though it has seen use, undoubtedly.  But certainly it does not look more than a thousand years old.

Kismet will stop, and look around in the room suspiciously before opening the scroll and reading it. Since when has reading ever been dangerous?

Also I guess I can sense curses on items?
Save vs Death I think? Would you like me to give that a try?

Also we should seriously consider who we leave in charge I think.
Our rep being an asshole does not seem like the best idea.

Also with a ship builder, maybe we could describe what we know about the petrel (after sunk) and see what they think? Maybe about how it sank?

Sofia Viktorova Koleva said...

(OOC: sorry this is posting as James. I'm having trouble with the Sofia account)

Sofia takes no immediate action.

Two unanswered, or answered and I missed them, questions from the last post.

1) Was the party paid the 100 gp advance from the harbormaster already? Was it split 6 or 4 ways?

2) Was Sofia able to sell the silver nugget for the value of its weight in silver in Syros, 296 gp?

Sofia Viktorova Koleva said...

regarding asking Akydemos his opinion on the condition of the Petrel, very astute Kismet. I don't know if it'll tell us anything, but it certainly can't hurt.

Ibrahim Bin Yusuf said...

I will wait and see what the scroll reveals.

Alexis Smolensk said...

Kismet, I can assume you may have asked the question of the boat-builder, but he explains that he doesn't do much work on ships; he's not a "ship" builder. His specialty is small boats, fishing boats, ketch-sized vessels at the largest.

You don't sense any curse in the room.

Sofia,

Yes, the money was paid up front. You have the money. And yes, I'll give you 296 g.p. for the silver bar.

Alexis Smolensk said...

The scroll reads,

"Please accept this gift. Heed me well when I say this ~ I am a friend, one of many you have if you will use this gift well."

Sofia Viktorova Koleva said...

Max/ Neklan isn't around to collect his share, so I'm good with splitting it 4-ways, unless somebody objects. 74 gp each.

Sofia, reading over Kismet's shoulder, raises an eyebrow.

Kismet said...

"Well damn, the problem with cryptic messages is well USUALLY means how they want. But how they want sure isn't obvious if you don't know who they are!" Kismet says. "Folks probably can't get on or off the island all that easily without others noting, we might as well ask around." After pausing a moment, "At least GIFT doesn't imply strings are attached yet. More carrot than whip as it were."

Kismet then picks up the sword and hopes he doesn't turn into a frog. He attempts to see if he feels different. Next he asks around if anyone saw someone arrive and visit his house while he was out. Then later after immediate concerns are addressed he throws together a quick combat dummy out of nearby odds and ends (sacks, straw/hay/lichen, driftwood and whatnot) (Assuming the fighter doesn't already have one) and swings the sword at it a few times.

Kismet said...

If that's a bit fast Alexis' consider the future stages being Kismet telling Sofia that's what they should do.

Ibrahim Bin Yusuf said...

Hmm. As we have recently had reason to realize, the fact they wrote a note cuts down considerably the number of people this 'friend' could be: if we know nothing else, we know that they can write.

I agree that this is a most puzzling gift. It's difficult to know what their hope is... unless the blade itself is somehow indicative. If they'd left us a headsman's sword, for example, that would be suggestive. But this is a mystery!

Alexis Smolensk said...

Before Kismet can attempt to feel different, before there's time to ask around, before a combat dummy can be made available or a few swings can be taken, he hears:

"Oh ho! A hand again. Magnificent!"

Kismet said...

In the less than masculine and fighterly manner, Kismet will whip around looking for the source and stumbling backwards somewhat with a sound something to the effect of "Aughahuhg!"

About the sound I expect I would make if I had just checked my home for intruders and suddenly heard one while tensed up.

And with meta knowledge 2 and 2, Kismet will say "What?" if Sofia seems unaware of the voice Kismet will also say, "Did you hear that?"

I will also assume due to fighter instinct and training, NEVER DROP YOUR WEAPON means he's still holding the sword.

Alexis Smolensk said...

Yes, you're still holding the sword!

The voice will say, "Woah, woah, calm down. These aren't your enemies; we don't want to start drawing blood here, do we?"

No one else seems aware that you are hearing a voice; you're scaring the hell out of them right now.

Kismet said...

"Alright..." Kismet speaks to the others, "So... I'm hearing voices now that appear to be appraised of my current situation. Including who you folks are."

Very specifically not looking at the party members "So... Are you the sword..." *Looks at sword* "...A ghost.." *Looks around* "Or some messenger or... um something?"

He begins to very obviously hold the sword over the blankets he grabbed it from as if ready to drop it again.

Enrico Guerriero said...

Enrico eyes Kismet nervously.

Earlier, or later, he commends Tazio on his management of their interests, trying to hide his reservations. He asks if Tazio has a "second in command" or a trusted lieutenant. He also asks around among the villagers, seeking out a competent leader who might be better suited than Tazio.

Alexis Smolensk said...

"Oh, I am the sword ~ but fear not, I'm not cursed, you can put me down if you wish. I can hear your friends, see your friends; and now you seem crazy to them . . . I do know this so well, from so many times. Tell them that they can hear me, if they will take hold of your body."

Alexis Smolensk said...

Enrico,

Carlito might make a better leader. His charisma is two points higher.

Kismet said...

Suspicious Kismet puts down the sword, then tells the others pretty much what the sword told him. Assuming no compulsion otherwise, he suggests they 'join the conversation' and picks up the sword again.

"Alright, so, let's talk, I'm Kismet, these are my companions. I found you on my bed with a note saying you are a gift, do you know anything about this?"

Alexis Smolensk said...

"They'll have to grip you a little tighter to hear me," says the sword.

There was no problem with you putting it down.

Enrico Guerriero said...

Enrico nods and smiles at Kismet, then looks worriedly at the others.

Sofia Viktorova Koleva said...

Sofia, eyebrow raised higher, places a hand on Kismet's shoulder.

Enrico Guerriero said...

Re: Carlito vs. Tazio, in addition to his higher Charisma, Carlito also has "Personal Magnetism: All hirelings in the character's party improve their morale by 2 if the character is within 20 feet." I don't know if this would apply directly to the villagers but it couldn't hurt. He's also a bit smarter, or at least, less dumb (8 Int vs. Tazio's 6 Int.) The one thing in Tazio's favor is he has "Personal Magnetism: Wisdom is 3 points higher when dealing with employees or employers." So he's (somewhat) competent but a jerk. That's reflected in the reports that apparently they are getting work done even if they don't like him.

So maybe we leave both of them and they can moderate each other, Carlito as good cop and Tazio as bad cop. So far they have proven to be reliable and honest.

I think it's much easier to find new hirelings to bring along with us, than to find people we trust to leave behind and run our interests here. Or maybe we want to go without the additional hirelings in the party as we're a party of four now. (Five if you include Kismet's imaginary friend.)

Any thoughts?

Ibrahim Bin Yusuf said...

I wash concerned about exactly what you mention - a better-liked boss is not necessarily a better boss - but if Tazio's Int is also that low I'm less concerned about it.

I don't know how well leaving them both in co-equal position would go - depending on their relationship that could easily become a recipe for undermining each other's authority and confusing the work force.

As for the talking sword, I'll wait for Sofia to confirm what's going on there (and preferably wait for an answer to 'who left you on the bed?') before linking myself into that conversation directly.

Enrico Guerriero said...

I would put Tazio in charge with Carlito as his second, acting as kind of a foreman. So Tazio has the plans but Carlito carries them out and deals directly with the workers. As Tazio and Carlito are (in theory) friends, Carlito would be able to better tolerate Tazio's lack of personality. I would hope that would make use of Tazio's better Wisdom, but Carlito's better Charisma.

Alexis Smolensk said...

Tazio, Carlito and Enrico have all known each other a long time. They are used to each other's habits and ways.

Since no one has gotten a tight grip on Kismet yet, only Kismet can hear the sword.

It says, "I have been in the possession of Jesuits these past three years. I presume you are a Jesuit, that you have been given a task for me to complete ~ but since it seems you are not, from what I hear, then I think this must be something about the Books of Faith. Are we going to go get them?"

Sofia Viktorova Koleva said...

Sofia's hand is on Kismet's shoulder, per above. She tightens that grip to the extent necessary to be in the conversation.

"Tell us about the Books of Faith."

Kismet said...

Kismet will reach over and grab the scroll with one hand and attempt to unroll it while holding the sword before asking for some help, "I dunno if you can read but this is literally all I know. Except for the fact that we just learned about a religious artifact and we're going to seek it out. In all honesty we're doing that to find our friends who may also have sought it out. Though the artifact wasn't a book. I think it was Jewish though based on our very vague research...

And I surely was not told that I needed to return the artifact to anyone in particular. Though it could be said interested parties are apparently interested enough to suggest they would make an offer for it.

So, I am not particularly told to perform a task, but at the same time it has been suggested I do so. I will definitely be seeking out this artifact to find our friends. It also seems you are now not told to do any task yourself. But I presume you will have thoughts on that?"

Kismet honestly speaks his thoughts on the matter in these regards. Just in case it matters.

Kismet said...

I also believe that was our plan? To seek out this artifact as part of seeking out the fate of the petrel and possibly our masters/friends?

Alexis Smolensk said...

Once you have a good, tight grip, bunching up some of Kismet's robe in your fist, you can hear.

"Books lost centuries ago," the sword explains. "Stolen from Nicaea by the Arians, intent on breaking up the church. Under Lucius Agrippa Valerian Asiaticus our legion marched into the lands of Scythia, where we fought an orcish Hun army, much to our demise. The whole title of the books was, is, The Adumbration of Faith as Divined by the Bishops of Nicaea."

Alexis Smolensk said...

"I know nothing of a ship," says the book. "But a day ago, I was removed from a chest in Hora, I know not why, after not very long inside it. I heard that there had been a divine vision that said I was needed. This is all I know ~ but I have waited to return to Scythia these past three years."

Kismet said...

"Do you know of or have you heard the name Philoctetes? They've had quite a few visions as of late, including ones that set us on the path of learning about this artifact.

Though I was more curious on your thoughts in regards to being a gift, as opposed to someone sent on a holy quest."

Sofia Viktorova Koleva said...

"I felt our best course was to seek our masters near Rosk. The journal dates are still inconsistent with our current date, but that was our best lead and conforms to where Andrej and the others intended to start the mission. The Jewish artifact is allegedly further east and north in th Baskunchak."

Alexis Smolensk said...

The sword will say, "I have not heard of him. I presume if you have come by me, that I am a gift, but apart from being in the possession of the Jesuits, I know now how or why I came to you. I presume they must know of this artifact the one of you speaks of, that they must want you to get it.

"I know nothing of a Jewish artifact ~ but many of the Arians were Kabbalists, who practiced Jewish meditation and numerology. But what is this Baskunchak you speak of? Is it near the city of Astrakhan? I have been to Astrakhan. I saw that city soon after I was found."

Kismet said...

Well, if we have the general knowledge of Google Maps for all our planning....

It is on the same waterway. And a bit southeast from Baskunchak. Either further down along our route if we seek the artifact after meeting the older party. Or if we decide that going through modern Georgia to the Caspian Sea then up north is faster then along said route. That said, I think meeting up with the old party seems like a goal we want to hit, so probably the first.

Alexis Smolensk said...

"Whenever you're ready, master."

Sofia Viktorova Koleva said...

So gather our things and leave for Naxos on the morrow?

Regarding who is in charge here in Kofunisia, I like the idea of leaving the henchmen behind if Enrico is willing. They may stay in Sofia's house if they wish. The main party left considerably more money than was necessary to pay for the labor of the ditch project, so if want to make a list of other improvements (a dock, a granary) we can at least hope for the best in our absence.

Kismet said...

When folks are done with questions that require direct answers, Kismet will take the opportunity to get a high level QA session with the sword about things like:

What can it do besides talk. (Magical properties)
And it's history at a high level. What it knows about its creation and where its been and what its done in general over the time since then.

Kismet said...

I believe we did have a list. In order.
I say sure lets leave when ready (no reason to delay I can think of but weather)

Also they can use Kismet's house, I'm assuming to some degree they at least check in on these places to make sure no horrible abominations settled in periodically.

Sofia Viktorova Koleva said...

With the henchmen here, they could collect rent directly for us. Maybe even encourage new settlement somehow on the newly farm-able land. Any idea where that list is at, Kismet?

Alexis Smolensk said...

Overall,

The sword will explain that it was forged during the eighth year of the Emperor Valens reign ~ calculating it out, that would be on the Gregorian calendar, about 372. It was made to fight the Huns at that time, and Oh, many a Hun it did kill. It's name has been, varyingly, Hun Cleaver, Hun Smasher, Hun Breaker and Gravemaker. It regrets that it was never able to fight Attila itself, but it remembers when Attila appeared and it remembers the time of Attila's empire.

Then, in the 420s, it became the possession of the Church in Constantinople, where it was used by the commander of several armies in the service of the church to slaughter non-believers. It has killed Jews and Gnostians, Taurentians, Armenians, Sassanids, Magi and pagans of all kinds. This lasted until the reign of Romulus Augustulus, when it was carried into the eastern steppe to recover the books. After a slaughter of the legion that it was a part of, it lay in the sand, buried, until it was found three years ago.

Alexis Smolensk said...

Technically, Tazio and Carlito are Followers, not Henchmen.

Enrico Guerriero said...

I'm good with leaving them behind. If we want to hire new hirelings, we can do so here. Tazio and Carlito were both fighters; perhaps there's another class that would benefit us more... at the moment we are fighter, ranger, monk, and bard, correct? Perhaps we could find a cleric. An acolyte willing to join us on a pilgrimage to found a mission. Or a young Imam interested in joining Ibrahim in a holy quest to rescue the famed Ahmet oglu-Ahmet. Or even a student of the Talmud who wants to help us find this Jewish artifact.

Or just a guy who knows Cure Light Wounds and wants to earn a little money.

Alexis Smolensk said...

Better read my rules on Enlistment of Hirelings. The kind of specialist you're looking for wouldn't be available on a small island like Koufonisia (remember, only 157 people).

Oh, and before I forget; Tazio has 120 s.p. & 10 c.p. in rent he's collected. Whatever you want to do with it.

Enrico Guerriero said...

Ah, OK. Well, something to keep in mind at our next port of call.

Sofia, suggestions on what to do with the rent money?

Alexis Smolensk said...

[Can I just say ~ I am LOVING that the wiki is beginning to get ahead of things like this]

Kismet said...

No information on potential magical properties?

Perhaps taking in a wage portion and stockpiling the extra for emergencies? Having a savings doesn't hurt. And later if we need we can just break the bank as it were.

Alexis Smolensk said...

Without an Identify spell, you cannot know what its magical properties might be. Without a Detect Magic spell, you cannot even be sure that it is magical (though that seems likely).

Alexis Smolensk said...

You do have to pay Tazio for the work he's done. With the new scheme for mercenaries, Carlito and Tazio are owed 7.5 g.p. per month (coincidentally, 120 s.p. per month). Technically, Tazio is doing a higher paying job than "footman," but he's gained a lot from the party in the past, so he's willing to overlook the wage increase.

Do note that with a good harvest of olives, lemons, whatever, you can expect to pull in a great deal more than this.

Sofia Viktorova Koleva said...

Just to confirm, the rent Tazio collected is for one month?

Sofia Viktorova Koleva said...

One more question, Max left 500 gp in Sofia's chest for storage. Do we presume he took that with him when he left?

Sofia Viktorova Koleva said...

I propose the party, through Enrico, offer Tazio and Carlito positions as party representatives on the island. Their duties to include:

- collecting of taxes
- managing our improvement projects
- protecting our property
- taking whatever action they deem prudent, within the law, on behalf of the party not covered above.

In return, they will take their wages from the current taxes collected. Should our improvement projects attract more renters (we must count any new renters as such) they may take a 10% bonus from all newly collected rent (that is, 10% of all rent beyond the current 120 sp & 10 cp.)

Excess tax revenue (being now 10 cp a month plus future gains) will be set aside in Sofia's chest.

The gold left behind in Sofia's chest by Andrej, Ahmet & Lukas will be used for further improvement projects, a list of which we will leave behind

The term of service is at least one year (we'll leave enough work for that long), at which time the party will endeavor to contact Tazio and Carlito to re-visit terms. In the event no word is given by one year, Tazio and Carlito are free to leave or continue acting on our behalf.

Should word need to be sent to the party, we presume the mission to be in Rostov, Cumana or thereabouts.

What do Kismet, Enrico & Ibrahim think?

Kismet said...

We might want to leave guidelines that they should generally not be assholes, but otherwise I'm good with that.

I need to search the backlog to find our list, I'm fairly certain there was a title to the effect of the hex system for settlements.

Alexis Smolensk said...

Yes, the money collected was for 1 month.

Nope. You've still got the 500 g.p.

Um, the 120 s.p. is per footman; so the monthly cost is 240 for both. But they'll suspend half their payment in exchange for lodging and access to the island's varying generosity.

They'll accept the deal you suggest.

Ibrahim Bin Yusuf said...

I think that Enrico and Carlito as a team to run the settlement sounds like a good solution. We may indeed want to look into hirelings to round out the party when we can, but I'd rather have loyal followers handling things out of sight and regular hirelings under our eye than the reverse.

I am happy to seek out the main party and then go in search of the artifact - it sounds like we have the cash to do that and it can't hurt our chances of actually finding the thing.

Enrico Guerriero said...

Tazio and Carlito, not Enrico :)

A sound plan Sofia, let's do it.

Kismet said...

Yeah, besides, I think the main parties goals were not all that in conflict with searching for ancient artifacts. Since building towns takes time, money and favors.

Sofia Viktorova Koleva said...

I think today is Alexis's day off from the campaign? I'll check in periodically to see. In the meantime, we can prioritize a new list of improvements if we no longer have the old one. I'd like to do the granary next, then the dock.

Sofia Viktorova Koleva said...

Oh, by the way. Cool sword Kismet. ;-)

Sofia Viktorova Koleva said...

Regarding the 500 gp left behind by Max. Perhaps we should divvy it up for safe keeping ;-)

I propose we leave 100 gp of it behind as a hedge for our representatives. If they squander, lose or run off with it the loss is minimal, but if they preserve or spend it wisely it will be an asset. That leaves an additional 100 gp each for the party to ensure we make it Rostov with more than the clothes on our backs.

Any objections?

Kismet said...

Well, we don't have as much in horses, supplies and settlers so it should be cheaper

Enrico Guerriero said...

Yeah, I was a little worried about leaving that much cash here. 100 g.p. would be enough for them to accomplish things (particularly with additional money coming in from taxes) but as you said, wouldn't be a tremendous loss if we come back and they've run off or been deposed in a coup.

Kismet said...

Thanks, I guess? Sofia.
TBH, I'll feel a bit more excited after 2 things.
1. I use it and make sure it doesn't explode.
and
2. I feel like I've earned it. No lie, I am all the more suspicious and... guilty? about a random item falling into my lap without earning it as it were.

Not to sound un grateful, I'm very interested in seeing where this is going, and it feels like a good way to give us some direction beyond find the old party and then... Um build?

Also, did Andrej have Identify? If not we may need to make a pit stop if we can find a town big enough.

Alexis Smolensk said...

Identify is a mage spell.

Kismet said...

Well it will be inevitable we'll go to a big enough city at some point, when that point comes we'll talk to someone about it.

Kismet will store his old broadsword at home for the long term (I anticipate this probably includes wrapping it for protection against moisture or whatnot) And then puts the new one in it's place.

Then he begins arranging for passage to the next town. We don't have the Petrel for this one, so I anticipate we'll have to take a boat to the nearest big town then a ship to begin a route similar to what the Petrel took.

Eventually in his downtime he WILL practice with the new sword to get the balance and some familiarity with the style.

Alexis Smolensk said...

Kismet, if it helps:

Think of it like gaining a follower or a friend. I gave lots of help in the way of Madam Captain, Andrej once had a close NPC companion Father Jan, Emmanuel was a great help over the years and so on. I have always from time to time inserted an extra character into the story, to make the party feel as though they are not alone in a harsh world.

The sword, whatever it does, isn't THAT much of an unbalancer to the troubles you potentially face. You're still 1st level. It doesn't make you a lord. You'll have to earn your experience with it or without it, yes?

Kismet said...

It's ok.
I'll get over it.
It just happens when my empathy side gets twisted by my internal jealousy side that I normally squash.

As for the trip, do we know if we can just take the same route as the Petrel or will we need to find an alternate path?

It's a quick trip to Syros are we basically just going to go back there to find a route to our destination? It seems the most likely once we're done packing.

Sofia Viktorova Koleva said...

From here to Naxos to Syros and then to Constnatinople either directly or indirectly was how I understood it, Kismet.

I'll be adjusting Sofia's character sheet this weekend in preperation for our departure. Maybe we can say we take a day or two in Kofunisia to get our affairs in order, instruct our represnetatives, let the mayor/ elder guy we met upon first arrival know Tazio and Carlito are acting in our stead and be ready to go for the next blog post?

Kismet said...

I would be good with that.

In Syros I will have to keep an eye for a caster for Identify.
I didn't see a service listed on the market, so maybe they don't have it, or my searches were not bringing up casting services.

Previously I believe that was in the market, don't know if it's changed.

Alexis Smolensk said...

I would count it as three days, Sofia. If you want any more, let me know. Otherwise, set your departure from Koufonisia for the 17th.

Enrico Guerriero said...

Why not wait until we get to Constantinople, Kismet? I'm sure prices will be cheaper there. We could also find a Hireling or two there, if we are seeking to balance out the party with a spellcaster or thief.

Ibrahim Bin Yusuf said...

Three days sounds good. I'll adjust my food accordingly and possibly work on my poetry (I'll need to commit to my sage abilities soon, I suppose).

[By the by, Alexis, did my plan of buying a whole goose in order to get quills pass muster back in Syros? I bought it for us to share regardless, but I wanted to check on that - it was towards the end of the thread in 'Enrico Alone Again - Round 5.']

Sofia Viktorova Koleva said...

Three days sounds good. I should have Sofia's sheet done soon, and will be ready to go when Alexis is.

Sofia Viktorova Koleva said...

Folks, I'm sorry but I completely forgot I'm going to be in a training class for work today and tomorrow and unable to play much. I'll check in after work and before class starts 8 am ET.

Enrico Guerriero said...

Just to confirm, I believe we split the Harbormaster's 100 gp six ways (16 gp, 5 sp, 4 cp per person), and the 296 gp from the silver nugget four ways (74 gp), which means each of us now has an additional 90 gp, 5 sp, and 4 cp.

Alexis Smolensk said...

[I'm sorry. I have fallen off and I have to climb back onto this horse, don't I? Let me be clear on what my next step is for the campaign: I need to write a post about the party starting out for Constantinople. I feel the best place to start for this would be the town of Hora on Naxos, which you must get back to in order to find a vessel for Syros or anywhere else. I give you my word that I will write this post before the end of the day and I will be back in the saddle.

Again, sorry for the delay and the inconvenience. I know you're all going to say it is all right, but I could have given notice before disappearing and you should all hold me to that. I'm as answerable as anyone]

Alexis Smolensk said...

Okay, the next post is up.
