DOUBLE POST---SLOW FORUM
Smith DiSaaMuel approaches.
I bring both joy and sadness. The birth is done, and a new girl has been born. (13/7/17/15/13, Tracking, Intelectual, Naturalist). However, it is sad that Venus has passed on. She died in birth. I bid you adeau, Corevius. I feel it is not right to raise a child in sad settings such as this. I will bring her back to Gorina to recieve attention at the palace of Bellona.
And so, Smith leaves with Aphrodite.
OCC- John, I called dibs on a female heir, remember?
At night on the cattle tile SW of nar shaddaa
Some dark figures sneak up to the cattle... suddenly strange noises are heard through the night...
Figure1: "HUTHUT! COMEON! HUTHUTHUT!"
The cattle are surprised and suddenly start running. Due to the sounds the resulting stampede is directed to the workshops of the tile.
As the cattle ran past, most of the workshops were destroyed.
People: "Someone must have caused this stampede... we heard voices..."
Guards: "So in which direction did they go?"
People: "Dont you stupid nuts hear the noise? Follow them! Quick!"
And so the guards start hunting the attackers down...
But things come differently than you might expect.........
All of a sudden, the cattle turns back and the stampede runs through the attackers.... with most of them dying.
At this moment, the guards manage to catch up with the attackers...
Guards: "STOP! Give up... you are outnumbered! You dont have a chance!"
Attackers: "We never will give up!"
The attackers draw their weapons and a heavy fight arises...
Most of the attackers fall, and some get caught...
Secundus Becchino is caught by the guards...
this event was initiated for the FreeDom Cell. It was officially ruled by the land manager and the rpg manager.
The tile SW of Nar Shadda gets -1 shield due to this event.
The main attacker, Secundus Becchino, was caught during the event but not yet killed. Note here: He wont betray his brothers
So now i give over this event to the rulers of the ONS.
OOC: For future reference, My Palace is on the cattle tile, but i never posted it, though. Sorry bout that.
Secundus Becchino is brought forth to Antonio.
Antonio: You are a DISGRACE to the ONSS. Why do you persist in terrorizing the Lands of DePaolo? Or the Organization? Tell me, because I am probably the only person who will listen to you. What is the goal of this "Freedom Cell"?
"We want to join our moterland fanatica again! People dont want to be ruled by you betrayers! We were a great region here before the ONSS split our lands between the highborns... We spit on you!"
A group of warriors, part of the warrior unit that was out patrolling, brings Secondus outside Antonio's palace
Warrior: We have methods designed to extract information from anybody, by torture! We will set things afire on you, scald you with boiling water, dunk you underwater until you almost drown, whip you, whatever it takes to cause you to tell us: Who are your companions?
Secondus: You will never make me talk.
Three strong warriors tie Secondus to a tree and start to torture him.
OOC: Oct, it is up to you to decide whether we extract any information as to his companions or other information about the Nar Shaddaa Freedom Cell and whether the torture kills Secondus. CT has granted permission to kill, if that's how you rule.
EDIT: OOC: Okay, CT, I changed it from a medieval machine to ancient torture.
RPG Manager's voice - There can't be any mideval styles of torture in the ancient era. Ancient methods of torture (there was a show on the History Channel about the history of torture) was done by tying someone up to a tree and doing things like putting burning straw in their openings (ears, mouth, nose, etc. - including under fingernails and toenails). There were other methods too - water torture comes to mind, and whipping.
OOC: Torture devices changed. Let's get this torture underway!
Antonio cannot bear to watch. He tried to befriend Secundus, but his efforts failed.
Conflict Manager: Using what cunning and intelligence he had, Secundus survives the torture, but with many a bad burn. He managed not to reveal any information to the warriors.
Warrior: He survived the torture, which was unsuccessful!
Commander: Lock him away for now.
Secondus is led to the dungeons of Antonio's palace, where he is locked up.
We see a dark room inside a building, only lit by a small window... in this almost complete darkness, a figure is sitting on the ground talking to himself. Coloseup zoom in to the figure
"How do i manage to keep my secrets for me... the torture almost made me talk... i need something to kill myself...to protect the revolution...to protect our people!"
Zomm out... you can now see the figure searching the ground...
OOC: The dungeon has one small barred window at the top, a packed earth floor, a bench, some moldy bread and a pitcher of water are occasionally brought in, and has a few rocks in the floor.
the rocks were ALLtaken out to prevent him for using them in anyway.
OOC: be careful about what u say booty... ;P
A dark figure walks down the steps to the dungeon. The guards are asleep so he can slip by easily. He opens the door and calls, "Secundus, come with me!"
Secundus obeys, but reluctantly. They go up to the palace where a guard spots them...
Guard: Halt! Who said Secunduds could come out???
Dark Figure: Antonio did, he wants to see him...
Guard: I don't believe you, so I will escort you there.
The Guard leads them to Antonio's doors, where the Dark Figure pulls out a sword and kills the guard. Secundus runs away, but the Dark Figure tackles him down.
Dark Figure: You must stay with me if you want to survive!
They run out of the palace with 3 or 4 guards following them. Secundus and the Dark Figure jump into a ravine where dead bodies were thrown, and they hide under the bodies. The guards don't notice them and continue on. Secundus and the Dark Figure emerge, and run off to the city.
OOC: Need some spice in the storytelling
OOC: Oooh, this looks like fun!
Aldadan Taurnaina has been given permission, by Antony DePaolo, to go out of the palace and have the adventure that he has wanted for years. Now he needs an idea. One dark, restless midnight, a messenger rushed into Aldadan's rooms...
Messenger: Sir! Secundus, the rebel, has escaped!
Ald: What?! How?!
Messenger: Someone snuck into the dungeons to get him, then tricked a guard and killed him!
Ald: Which way did they go?
Messenger: Well, northeast sir, but- (shouting now) WAIT! Antony already sent out... (quiets down, then sighs) Fool man, rushing off like that to find Secundus...
Aldadan is out of the palace, sprinting at full speed toward the city, with only his clothing, a bit of money, and his trusty staff. There is little trail of the escapees, but Aldadan, now relying on his woodcraft from boyhood, tracks them to the city.
Antonio is notified that Secundus has escaped, and he is not too happy...
Antonio: HOW COULD YOU LET SOMEONE PAST TO THE DUNGEON!!!??? WHAT KIND OF GUARDS DO YOU THINK YOU ARE!!?? YOU ARE NOT GUARDS ANYMORE IN THIS PALACE!!! I CAN FIND MORE PEOPLE TO REPLACE YOU, WE ALREADY HAVE GUARDS WAITING TO PATROL!!!
A little while later...
Messenger: Sir, Aldadan has run after the Secundus!
Antonio: Leav him be. He was to do what he wanted, just have a couple guards trail behind him, I don't want my father's friend to be killed. Actually, send Hiberius, Julius, and Gaiaus to trail him. I'm sure he will be fine anyway.
After the messenger leaves, Antonio slips on a light plate of iron armor, and a special iron sword. These were from some bis of iron found in the mountain side. He gets a bow, too, and some food. He runs off after Ald, Antonio isn't going to let Ald have all the fun. He leaves bella at home, pregnant with Anthony II.
OOC: that iron must be fake or imported from fanatica ;-)
OOC: It's fake iron, made from soybeans (what isn't)!
OOC: I said it was from bits found in the mountainside.
Antony has a meeting called about the hostile act on his lands.
Antony: Surely the rebels will go in to hiding after an unsuccesful attack. We must persue them before they get too far!
Other nobles nod and mumble in agreement.
Antony: Plainia and Neronia, what will you do?
