Vassarious does prefer not to take life unnecessarily.

Bringing the culprit in to confess and bringing the Melder back to the knights works for me. Vassarious will use the ice orc abilities to ensure the Stone Melder stays securely entombed.

"Well,"
"One, I don't really trust the knight. He could easily say he was kidnapped and try to get out of it that way."
"Two, I don't have a good way of getting him out of his sticky prison."

Sticky? I thought it was construction foam.

He'll have to be extracted in any event.

If you want to wrap it up differently, then I'll follow your lead, go right ahead.

"OK, let's write them a letter and prepare to move the block of ice to out front of the lodge."

The letter should say something to the effect of: "This ice melder was stolen from your lodge. The parties responsible are two of your knights: [Scarry] and [Lion], along with everyone in the granary at [granary location]. [Lion] is in the bakery near the granary. Fix your security or next time this might not be stopped."

I missed this, and was waiting for more response. My Bad.

You have the letter. How will you be delivering it?

Well if we're not caught dropping the block of ice in front of the lodge (and thus explain ourselves there), then we'll just tack the letter to the block with a knife or maybe some sticky stuff and can call it a day. Then it'll just be the work of recovering all our equipment. I imagine we can take our leave from where we started?

You will probably leave from where you started. You can call the villa to get picked up on your communication charms.

If that's your plan, I think all that is left is moving the ice block.

Right, if V wants the support to move the block, I'll head over to where V is and help move the block. Otherwise I'll roll the barrel of high tech equipment back and prepare to take down the microbot hive.

Moving the block should not be a problem with the powers of the ice orcs,

Vassarious will bring it back to the Knights.

looking at how small a 1-ton block of ice is, I'm going to raise the base TK to 10 tons at 1/3 yard per second... which is still only half of this block's weight. Its as energetic as paced running... which is to say every 1 minute roll against HT or Occultism, on a failure, loose an FP (or ER).



Its slow work, moving the block through the street at 6 inches a second. Its really not that far to the lodge, only about 100 yards... but that's 10 minutes of movement.



In the night, an Ice Knight Shaman from the grand order comes out of the building and starts looking at you.
