New Pavis - Local Thieves

New Pavis - Local Thieves

0 INK

Attendies of the RP are in search in a city where crime is at an all time high. Many have wondered where its coming from and why, but maybe the approaching gentleman who appears to be clean enough can show you how to keep yourself from being a bum.

1,212 readers have visited New Pavis - Local Thieves since Dak'nahlan J'novi created it.

Introduction

Glorantha is filled with creatures of every kind. Humans, Elfs, Goblins, Dwarfs, Humanoid Salamanders, Giant Eels... it'd be easier to say what animals and plants aren't in Glorantha. Anyway, the location that you are heading is the ghetto of New Pavis, a city filled with its fishing docks and heinous crimes. Practically everyone is at each other's throats, even the children are said to have stolen the coinage from a wanderer's purse. Your job as a patron to this RP is with the Thieves Guild, joining or resisting, depending on which preference you have. Either way, you've received a bounty letter from the High King a few Holds back, you are to search for a Dak'nahlan to get in close with him and either report him and receive 20 lunars or join him (ditch the bounty). If you do join him, he will lead you from there to receive some later news on small jobs. But, if you try to capture him, you risk the leader of the night taking your life.

Toggle Rules

1: You are not God. You won't be able to ignore a slit to your throat. You cannot steal everything in a house without getting caught. And you won't be able to haggle a strip of leather to the price of a new horse.
2: If you do commit crimes, be descriptive. If you aren't specific enough with your crime, the GM might not know how the victim should react to the crime.
3: Your actions will eventually add up and you will get less and less of a chance to slip out of a guard's arrest.
4: Use common sense with your killing/stealing/lockpicking/etc. There will always be a way for you to get caught if you aren't too careful.
5: The adventure will require a deal of patience, so you may not be able to act on a subject after each post. This GM isn't the best typist in the world.
6: This RP's currency is lunars. 10 lunars is enough to feed you for six months.
7: Have fun with it!

I gasped and took a look at the guards who immediately turned their heads, swords men running towards the man blindly and bowmen taking their time to aim and fire at Nightmare. I slipped into the bush of a tree, afraid of getting caught in the line of fire and I waited.

"When you see a chaotic monster walk into a bar... lead him the other way." I thought, reminding myself what I put onto this city. I slipped through the line of fire and sneaked behind an archer, slipping coin out of his pants. Of course he didn't notice. They don't call me slick fingers for nothing.

"Somebody get the Jarl!" The looted man shouted, me slipping away into the shadowy abyss of the forest behind the main houses, waiting for him to be gone. Up from on top of the manor came a man with quite a lengthy blonde beard and a large enchanted battle axe shouting, "Go back from where you came from!"

"The Azure Knight is no challenge!" He stood sturdy, launching a side blow to Nightmare's side, moving surprisingly well with the axe's weight dragging him down.

The Jarl of Yerkshire is launched back, but gets right back up to launch an overhead strike onto Nightmare. "You must never return again!" He shouted, the voice sounding awfully triumpant at the moment. Suddenly the axe was ice and I stared at it, my eyes widening and I saying, "The weapon of legend... Soul Calibur." Unfortunately, in its adjusted form, the sword isn't as strong as it could be. But either way, this was going to be some fight.

*I seem momentarily distracted* "The sacred blade...I have found it." With this knowledge, I fight more aggressive.

I slipped my knife around in my hand, sprinting towards the scene as my dagger glowed a weird green. I slid down on knees, severing the knee of the Jarl and he fell to the ground hard. Just before he was about to be dug into the ground I swiped the blade and I shouted, "HOLD IT!"

"I SAID WAIT! This fight has been going on for centuries and I know it. You must dig up the humanity in you and destroy Soul Calibur!" Suddenly, the axe formed into a dagger form that I'm normally used to.
