Barabis's Body
Valen, Bartender at the Lucky Copper, has a task for us. He offers us free drinks if we make a delivery for him

Lady Gelks has offered her “time” to Valen if he can close up shop and join her. Valen asks us to deliver a cart for him so this time is freed up. The cart has something in it that needs to be taken out the Marsh Gate, to a muddy meadow, and buried. Sob peeks into the cart so see that it appears as though there is a corpse dressed in blood stained linens. It is a male who had his throat cut and organs removed. Sob recognizes the body. It is Barabis, Margon’s acolyte.

Margon is visibly shaken and takes the cart to her temple instead of the Marsh Gate. This is a double insult to the faith: Barabis is dead and his body has been stripped of its organs. Strangely, the body appears to have been well fed and clean (other than the blood and missing organs).

We to Gilk’s place and hear her and Valen through the door. We knock on the door and convince Gilks to leave. Before she does, she tells Genet that someone has been trying to recruit the members of the whores guild to attend a party and to wear party masks. She doesn’t know when or where the party will take place, but she will get back to Genet when she finds more information.

Genet, Flossin, and Refe escort Valen to Margon’s temple. Valen seems ignorant as to the cause of death of Barabis. Valen says we need to seek out Finris for any information on the body. Sob Riquet has heard of Finris. There is a bar, the Royal Harvest, on the edge of the noble district and in that bar there is a “fixer” known as Finris. Valen apologizes and begs our understanding. He was only the middleman.

At the Royal Harvest we learn that Finris hangs out at the Genteel Gentile. At the Genteel Gentile, Genet flushes Finris out. Finris runs out the back where Flossin and Margon capture him. We take him to Vaniks’ burned out home. After interrogation, Flossin tells us that he got Barabis’s body from a middle aged, well to do fat man with big gold earing at the Royal Harvest. The man with the earrings has a tall, ugly, man-servant with reddish hair -he looks like a northerner. He gives Finris regular business. Finris doesn’t know why Barabis’s was missing its organs.

Floostin Unmasked
Margon and Genet collect six cursed masks from the “well to do” kids we met at the Sideways Salamander. Ricky and Flossin collect Tyla from the orphanage.

Billy tells Tyla there is some suspicious things going on in the thieves guild. There have been several unauthorized burglaries in town. Some of the members have been acting like they were possessed, killing some of the other guild members and officers. The perpetrators can be identified by feeling them for hidden masks.

We rest for the night and then head to the Plaza of Dark Delights. Our hope is to track down Fiola and bring her back to house Holcat. After speaking with some of the food vendor's, we get a good idea of which street the lovers have taken up residence. We knock on a few doors hoping to get lucky. Eventually we track down the right apartment only to find out that Fiola isn’t there. Even though she isn’t in the apartment, her party mask is. Flossin prys off a gem from the mask out of curiosity. As Flossin prys the gem loose, after a few seconds it bursts into flames, burning the mask to ashes. Flossin tosses the burning gem towards Tyla so it doesn’t burn his own hands.

At that moment Genet and Margon, who were waiting outside, spot Fiola and her lover returning to her apartment. We get out of Fiola and Gibon’s way so they can head upstairs unobstructed. In the apartment, Tyla persuades Fiola and Gibon to come in and sit down. Genet comes in to support the ruse that we are all from the city guard, there to track down a character named Foostin. Fiola and Gibon confirm they received masks from Foostin and where to go to the party tonight wearing the masks. We explain that the masks are cursed and may burst into flames on the wearer. We confide in Fiola that we were hired by her mother to find her and return her home. We promise to help them if Fiola returns home to her mother first.

Lady Holcat sends Fiola to her room under guard. She then pays us each 20 rilks. We tell her about Floostin and his plans to turn the children of the guild members against them. She is convinced to help us enter the yule party as part of her company to catch Floostin. Genet accompanies Lady Holcat in her carriage to the ball. Genet works his charms and the widow is most accommodating. She would be a “career” advancement for Genet. House Holcat is at a much higher station in the grain guild and Lady Holcat doesn’t have a husband who would want to kill her lover.

The lights dim and the masked guests attack! Genet taunts the puppet master calling him a coward by hiding behind children. In unison, the masked children call out for the priviledged to stop treading on the downtrodden. We subdue nine of the kids and remove their masks. Others were killed or their masks burst into flame before we could subdue them. In total, we have sixteen mask worth 100 rilks each.

Rumination's #10: defying the pact
He defied the pact once. Will he do it again? For a stranger? The consequences are high for all but a promise is a promise.

Ranel System, Planet Nola
null

...and dropping out of hyperspace, sensors online and ... location good.
Ranel System...planet Nola...bounty for one Sedryn Pajola 80K!.
Nola is mostly uninhabited. Sensors show a small colony. Listed as a mining colony.
I choose to set down Miss Opportunity a few clicks away. No need to advertise my presence.
Miss Opportunity comes to a rest in a very small clearing in the rain forest near a small stream.
I hope I got here before anyone else. Word has it that there is a merc team on the same job. I better get at it.
My engines should have scared away any local wildlife. Has my ship attracted any attention?

[color=#FF0000]No[/color]

I look around for a bit at the edge of the down ramp. The air is humid and sweet tasting. Nice. I step off and lock down Miss Opportunity with my wrist computer. I check my compad and head off in the direction of the colony. On the way there do I encounter any hostile creatures?

[color=#FF0000]No[/color]

I reach the mining colony. And things are not looking like I expected. There is smoke coming from some of the equipment. Looks like they have some kind of drilling equipment. No idea what for. Don't care. From my vantage point on a hill above the mining colony I look for any signs of Sedryn Pajola. Do I spot him?

[color=#FF0000]No[/color]

After wasting enough time I decide it is time to head down and meet the locals. Who do I run into first?

[color=#0000CD]Insane female gladiator[/color]

Great, this huge female hurloo, you know the 8 foot tall slope headed bruisers, jumps out of a tree and tries to smash my head in with... another tree?

[OC] I have the shoot first ability so that is what I'm going to use. Agility +2
I draw my mag pistol and try to stop the giant.

[color=#800080]9 = 6[sub][d6][/sub]+1[sub][d6][/sub]+2[/color]

Partial Success, I shoot the giantess but she hits with the momentum of her club.
I do 1d6 damage.

[color=#800080]2 = 2[sub][d6][/sub][/color]

Giantess had 6 Health, now down to 4. But that club still manages to clobber me.

[color=#800080]5 = 4[sub][d6][/sub]+1[/color]

I take 5 damage from my 13 health. My armor reduces it to 4 damage so I'm down to 9 Health.
This fight is looking a little lopsided. I fire again hoping to stop her from crushing me.

[color=#800080]9 = 6[sub][d6][/sub]+1[sub][d6][/sub]+2[/color]

I roll backwards and fire my mag pistol again, thump-twong!

[color=#800080]4 = 4[sub][d6][/sub][/color]

I manage to drop her but not before she clobbers me again doing

[color=#800080]2 = 1[sub][d6][/sub]+1[/color]

2-1 for armor and my health is now at 8.
Someone must have heard the gunfire. I holster my weapon and wait for the locals. I hope they are friendlier than the giantess was.
Does anyone hear my gunshots?

[color=#006400]Yes[/color]

Do the locals come to where I had the fight?

[color=#006400]Yes[/color]

Several of the mining colonists wearing a patchwork of armor and carrying both pistols and makeshift melee weapons call out for me to surrender. Are they angry about the death of the hurloo?

[color=#006400]Yes[/color], [color=#FF0000]but...[/color]

A few of them start yelling at me to drop my weapon and get down on the ground. The leader of the group

[color=#0000CD]Cruel female Centipod ensign[/color]

is ready to execute me right there but someone else speaks up for me and says I should be brought for questioning. Something about me being a spy for WSC Industrial, the mining company what is running this colony. Well that there is odd. They check me over for other weapons. Do they find my boot gun?

[color=#FF0000]No[/color], [color=#006400]and...[/color]
