"When he wants to! I'll see if I can get him to cooperate."

"GOLIATH, COME!" Peter calls out to the dog. "We can follow the trail and see if we can find him, but if Goliath is confused, we may need to get something with Mr. Pundell's scent for him to follow."

"I didn't want to chase him into the woods on my own, and Col. Holland was bleeding out..." Peter gestures towards the pool of blood as he speaks. "Sorry I let him get away... you should send for more bodies to guard the circle so he can't come back and make demons. Now that the circle is found, maybe even move the camp closer to keep fresh eyes on it until the frog can be recovered."

Peter leads Goliath to the path Mr Pundell was taking "let's find that mean old man and get that frog!" and tries to track where he may have gone. He will also reach out with his sense of magic, and see if he can feel the pull of the frog.

((Peter's Per is 14, Tracking default of 9... Hopefully Goliath's is better))

Anil nods at Peter's suggestions.



"Yes, we have half of the prize here, its probably the easier of the two to guard. We should move the rest of the camp here... and possibly send away the men who sided with Mr. Pundell."


Peter has trouble sensing the frog when its this far away (however far that is) and not actively being used.



Goliath is better at tracking... But He's not sure which scent Peter wants him to follow.Mr. Pundell seems to have dropped one of his pistols though... Goliath is able to follow that scent.


Anil says most of the group need to stay and secure the prisoners and circle, and get word to the camp before Mr. Pundell gets there...


"How many men do you actually NEED to chase him down?"

I don't know if you've noticed, but he believes some odd things about Peter that make him a bit more malleable to Peter's influence than to the influence of others.

"I can spare two men. Rahman! Nabi!"


He gives some orders in the local language.



"Nabi understands english. Go get that talisman!"


Goliath follows the scent through the trees, with three people following close behind him. Then he suddenly stops and points his nose to the other side of a tree...


Mr. Pundel is slowly walking. The three of you are all down 2 FP from following your quarry at a brisk pace.

Spoiler:  


Peter wordlessly mouths "He's there" and gestures for the others to move up to flank Mr. Pundell...

(If I may, I'd like to say that Peter retrieved the pistol back from Anil before going to track their quarry, and if not he will be armed with the bow. Peter aims for the man's leg until noticed)

Once Mr. Pundell sees that he is pursued, Peter will say "Give it up Pundell, you're outnumbered, let's go back to camp and figure this out."

If Mr. Pudell does anything that does not point to surrender, Peter will attempt to shoot the man in the leg

Mr. Pundell stops moving, and turns around, looking at the three men with weapons on him. The Frog is still in his hand.

"Who are you anyways? What gives you such loyalty to that son of a pig?"

After a response:

"I've worked hard for this. I dug through ancient records. I endured ridicule. I paid a fortune to get this talisman, and another fortune to fund this expedition. And they want to take it from me over some old legend."

"I'm just trying to do the most good for the most people. You're making decisions and trying to back them up with guns. It seems like a bad idea to give someone the kind of power this Karana circle gives ya' if that's your go-to method for dealing with a disagreement."

After his last comment:

"Sorry, but that's just over my pay-grade. Maybe you can still make your case, just not over the barrel of a gun. Drop the idol and step away and start heading back to the circle. If you run, or get farther than 20 feet or closer than 10 feet of us, we're gonna shoot you. I'm no killer, so I'll be shooting for your legs, but I can't speak for the others."

If Pundell complies, Peter will circle around and retrieve the frog.

"Let me go with my property, and it will be your paygrade! I'll give you enough to make you rich! Thousands of pounds! I'll make you a new man. Never work another day in your life."


"They are the ones who brought out the weapons first! That boy had a gun on his belt when he had them frisk me and steal the frog!"

"I'm not interested in a payoff, but I'm willing to argue that you deserve something for tracking down the talisman, but we are going to all go discuss it like civilized people. In the spirit of that, you can hold on to the frog, but you're coming with us."

Peter makes a hand gesture to Goliath, the one he uses to get Goliath to growl and look aggressive while remaining at Peter's side...

Mr. Pundell turns to run, and Peter fires, striking him in the leg for 1d6+1 = 6 damage. He tries to take a few more steps, but the leg won't work and he goes down.


Peter takes the frog, and the two men support Mr. Pundell on the way back to the circle. The four of them return to a bit of whooping and hollering.


What does Peter do with the Frog?
