Though Zthulan wishes to follow the others he follows Horizon. Knowing that he will need assistance if there is another encounter. However he asks Koras to watch over the girl in his stead.

....Just realized something. Zarhon, I think I'd like to make my way back to the cultist on the way to the mayor and perhaps search him for loot, like, I don't know, that scroll you specifically mentioned still being clasped in his hand that had the potential to kill us all.

The trio, and the girl, retrace their steps to where the battle was fought, and then head back on track towards the Mayor. Rolf picks up the scroll along the way - it appears to be similar to the ones looted from previous cultists.

Horizon Perception:

9 + 10 = 19

Meanwhile, Zthulan and Horizon approach the final bend before the street where the Mayor's mansion is situated. There appears to have been a conflict here - a bunch of cultists, a lot of undead, and a few City Guard corpses lie scattered about, within view of the destination street. Noises of people shouting can be heard from the corner of the bend.





Arcana to figure out the scroll. Rolf/Jeraylia/Skitter will take a bit of time to reach where Horizon and Ztuhlan are now, since they went on a detour.

To clarify what Horizon/Zthulan are seeing:

........................I
_______________I

<--mansion . . . corpses
& noises
_______________
........................I
........................I Zthulan & Horizon
....walls/houses...I
........................I

"With my luck, it'll just turn out to be one of those suicide scrolls again. Still, you never know." As they walked toward the mayor's, Rolf looked over the scroll to see if he could tell what it could do.

With a bit of luck, and some inexplicable experience, Rolf succeeds in figuring out the effect of the scroll! Or at least, 1/4th of it...

Scroll - Combat Consumable:
Suicide Very Dangerous Scroll - Standard Utility - Consumable
Skip your current and next turn, and roll a 1d4, performing the corresponding effect at the end of your next turn:
1 - ?
2 - Inflict 1d10+10 ongoing damage (save ends) to all creatures in combat.
3 - ?
4 - ?
This action can be cancelled by the caster before it takes effect, but requires a coin toss to see if the scroll will activate against the caster only.

Rolf raised an eyebrow as he looked at the scroll. From what he could decipher, there were four possible effects when the scroll was activated, which seemed to be chosen at random. The one effect he could decipher seemed to have the potential to do major damage to everyone within a certain radius...including the caster. "Where does Zilean get people crazy or stupid enough to use these things?" He decided to put the scroll away for the moment, perhaps if he was able to meet up with Master Nester later, he would be able to decipher more of the scroll.

Stopping instinctively Zthulan turns to whisper to Horizon. "How do you want to go about this?" The spear tip striking out from his staff.

"Well I didn't get all dressed up for nothing. Guy I stole this from had a few hostages, maybe that's a thing." Horizon readjusted the Cultist robe and hood. I'll go see what exactly we're dealing with. If it's necros, then I walk you out with your arms behind your back- you play hostage until we have a better read on the situation." He takes off his helmet and hands it to Zthulan. "Hold this. Anyway, if it's bad guys we do it like that. If it's Guards or Paladins, then I play the hostage, and we do the same thing. If it's both, fighting, then we hold back and wait for one side to lose, and then go." Satisfied with heis disguise, Horizon moves to the corner and peeks around it.

About to protest to some parts of the plan, Zthulan just shakes his head and snorts a puff of smoke in irritation.

Zthulan would only argue that they would need to fight against the cultists, regardless who is winning the battle. But that has to do more with opinion than logic.

Yeah, but we'd have to do some fast talking to keep the guards from attacking Horizon, who is still dressed like a cultist. no guarantee of success, so at least if we walk out like he's a prisoner, we'll be able to talk to them first and then explain if we need to.

Horizon Stealth:
2 + 12 = 14

Horizon peeks around the corner, and sees the Mansion - the way to it has been partially blocked with a number of barricades, improvised walls, and a makeshift "gate". Atop of the obstructions, as well as on various terraces and windows of the houses within the bounds said obstructions, a number of uniformed city guards stand watch, armed with crossbows and bows. A few of the guards on the barricades are also armed with rather long pikes, and there are a few guards outside the barricaded sections itself, armed with bludgeons and torches. Most of the shouting appears to be orders from an authority figure you cannot see.

Before he manages to duck back out of sight, Horizon's eye-catching purple hood catches the eye of one of the crossbowmen watching from a terrace, and he shouts a warning that alerts the guards - all of the bow and crossbow armed guards ready their weapons and aim towards the end of the street, while the ones outside the barricades move back to the gate and enter a defensive formation.

"Well that's all three of my plans shot. All guards, all in a defensive position." Horizon ducks back around and pulls off the robe as quickly as possible. "But I don't think they're coming over here. Time to come up with a new plan. There's still no guarantee that they won't try to kill us if we walk out. Helmet please."

Giving the helmet to Horizon Zthulan begins walking forward. "Perhaps I should take lead first? Maybe a healer would be a welcome sight for them." Retracting the spear tip Zthulan waits for Horizon's response.

"If you want. But remember, you don't look like a healer- you look like a big scaly dragony-thing. I still give you a 50/50 chance of getting shot at." Horizon puts on his helmet, leaving the cultist robe on the ground.

"True, but remember, anything not in purple is probably going to be treated with caution rather than hostility... I hope" Muttering the last piece Zthulan begins walking into the open. One hand on his staff and the other raised in a none threatening manner he stops at the corner and hollers towards towards the mansion.

"Hold your fire, we are not your enemies, My comrade and I are sent from the High Priest to meet with the mayor. My comrade's friend, Tiffany should be with you to hopefully."

Persuasion: (1d20) 9 + 10(Training) = 19.

I believe the High Priest had an actual name as well. Very Happy I forgot it, of course, but still nice to know these things!




As soon as he moves into their line of sight, the guards all aim their weapons at Zthulan, but don't immediately fire, while the soldiers brandish their weapons, keeping a distance from him. A slightly more-regal looking guard appears on top of the gate, and shouts:

"Hold it, spell-caster! Drop whatever weapons, wands or staves you may have, no sudden movements, and no magic, or we fire! Miss Tiffany indeed said to expect 'five adventurers', but we only see you, so far - where is your 'comrade'? We know one of you was spying on us just now, wearing those necromancer robes - explain!"

Placing his staff gently on the ground he continues to show his hands. "My comrade is right behind me, he obtained a robe from a cultist and was planning to use it to bypass them if they took the mansion. He goes by the name of Horizon, and the others are one their way shortly."

The outside guards approach Zthulan and quickly check him for any concealed weaponry. The shouting officer whispers something to a soldier next to him, and he runs off out of sight.

"Tell your comrade to come out here and do the same as you! We're not taking any chances until we get a confirmation on who you are."

Was Horizon just intentionally racist? Did Bronymous get the impression this is an almost all human society? Because last I checked the dragonborn race was one of the more common ones and any place large enough to be a city is unlikely to be 80% or more humans or such.
