OK friends, this is our chance to talk with the lizardmen.

Vicious, you will be the speaker; I will cover you, if the situation does not work just say/shout "Kuruluş". Telrith, you could back up Vicious if the conversation needs a little push. Is that OK with you?

The rest of the team, just stay behind Vicious and out of the monster’s range (10 yards will do).

I think we should tell them we are their enemies' foes. Vicious, you can show them the skulls we collected as proof, including the heads of the monsters we have killed.

Our offer will be simple, we can help them in exchange of their “support”: Information about the caves (so we navigate easily), free transit in their territory (as in being friendly towards the Riddle of Steel, be it in the swamps or in The Caves) and shelter in their town (as we "enjoy" in Starhold Keep). In return we help them clear the caves.

If things go smoothly, I will join you.
Otherwise, our steel will join them.


As Vicious approaches the lizardmen (making a diversion), Bain takes another path and under stealth (14) 9 & camouflage (17) 12, positioning himself about 6 yards above them and 5 yards away; ready to attack.

Vic approaches the lizardmen with his hand on his swords hilt.

Ahoy, friends, I come in peace, with an offer. I know you have issues with a group of orcs nearby, and we are a group of very skilled people that can help you kill them all. We can support you in take The Caves back, in exchange we ask for safe passage in your swamps, safe hosting in your town (we will pay for anything we need). Our steel is unbreakable (shows them the heads/skulls we have collected) and will join your steel


OOC rolled 6 on carousing (sl 11)

The lizardmen all snap to a ready stance as Vic approaches and begins parley.

All except one, who seems to be the leader of the patrols. He meets Vic's attempt at talking with casual curiosity. "There are no orcs left in the Cavesss, young sssscalelesssss. The unholy ssslaughtered them all, just as it tried to sssslaughter usss all. The zombie masterssss are far deadlier foesss than any tribe of pig-earsss."

The lizardmen hiss and chatter in their own language amongst themselves as their leader opens up a dialogue.
"Ssssmarter to just ssstay away from the Caves, avoid death that way, sssoft-ssskin." One of the patrollers mutters.

I see, we have fought some of their foul creations and bested them. I am destined to BATHE in their blood. It is the unholy's time of death. Would you want some of that blood?

OOC Carousing rolled 7 (skill level 11)

Vic waits for his answer

Even the relatively educated lizardman leader is confused by Vic's poetic turn of phrase. The scaled warriors look at each other.

(OC: I think Diplomacy is a better choice of influence skill.)

"We would very much like to destroy the invadersss..." The lizardman leader admits. "But we fear they may be far too powerful to kill. We suggest you ssstay away from the Cavesss. Or arm yourssselvesss much more aginssst the unholy..."

Nothing is too powerful to kill. We just need a plan and strength. You are strong, we are unbreakable, the evilness must be STOPPED.

The lizardmen shake their heads at Vic and start to leave.

Vic says after them:

I thought you lizardmen valued your FREEDOM. The corrupted enemy will not stop. They hunger for destruction of lizardkin and humankin and whatever can fuel their evil and twisted plans. It seems to easy to just walk away and ignore. The threat is still there even if you don't dare to go to the caves. They will come for ALL unless we strike first with strength. Alas! Seems your strength is not good for defending what you have.

As the lizardmen walk away, Bain drops from the tree with an acrobatic (12) 9 manoeuvre. It is as if Bain appeared out of nowhere!

He gets closer to the lizardmen and speaks.


Hey there, pleased to meet you. My name is Bain of Avalon, first of his name. Who are you?

He asks for the captain’s name.

I have the idea you are formidable and fearsome warriors.
But probably, the impression we all give each other leaves much to be desired.

You may neglect our words, but you can’t deny our deeds.

When disgrace fids you, seek the “The Riddle Steel”.
For you will find an answer.


Bain tells his companions to walk away from the lizardmen.

As the party walks away, Gathika whispers to Vicious...

You know, at this rate, not even the cultists will fight us.
