Yeah, I guess strength is her main thing. Well, if we get into a fight, maybe they'll be distracted enough for her to have a clear opportunity to pry open the cages.

Ok, you guys do your stuff, I'll just sit here and watch my plan self destruct.

I had anticipated that eventually we would have our bluff called, but I was hoping there'd be a lot fewer bad guys nearby.

Things have gotten pretty hairy XD. I'm shaking little thinking I might bet myself against the five gamblers and keep them occupied. I still have my charity (spellchild since I've spent a magic point today), so anyone feel free to use it if you got something special in mind.

... If combat does happens, boy might it take a while.

Edit: Um, I guess I should have asked this before, but whats the deal with the drink stand? Is everything free and just in barrels? Is someone manning a bar? Might change my approach a teeny bit, depending.

The drinks stand indeed has a barrel of booze tapped, and another, untapped, in the back. One of the cultists that appears to be managing most of the gambling, bets, and money transactions is using the stand to hold/pool most of the betted money on top of it, and is also manning the "bar". He appears to charge some people, and give free "samples" to others - notably, those betting.

Sorry that I haven't posted, waiting for Horizon's response so Zthulan doesn't screw the group over.

I meant to do an insight check on the last bit where he suggests Crawly. Whatever. How's inflation in this universe? Is 5 gp like a months salary, or just like $5?

Let's say 5 gp can get you a few decent drinks in an inn.

I'll drop 5g for the bet, then. Though, I'm thinking of stealing the kitty if the opportunity arises XD

I'm coming back over to help. Shall I burn that charity I've been holding? Although, you have been rolling a string of pretty strong rolls.

Nah. I would have burned my own magic point if I didn't expect a fight to start anyway.

Oh man, the suspense is killing me.
Question:
Would I know by now what attracts these zombies/their attention? Are they drawn by the scent of blood, or something?
Edit:Another Question:
Since the guys at the track don't suspect me yet, and Rolf's sent out a warning, can I get a surprise round if(when) combat rolls around?

Do we recognize any of the new group specifically? You mentioned something about guys we'd already killed, like the zombie on the chain and the crossbow guy that got impaled (who doesn't have a robe anymore). Are they zombies in the group with this guy, along with others we killed, or is it all new faces?

Mostly new faces, and the crossbow guy you impaled (recognized by Zthulan - pretty obvious so giving it free of perception checks), who's wearing "mercenary" clothing, with a rather big, bloody improvised "covering" over his chest, where he was impaled. He's not acting mindless/inert like an actual zombie, and doesn't appear to be showing any signs of pain, or recognition of Zthulan/Horizon.

@ Jeraylia: Yes, blood/meat appears to be agitating them. Yes, you can get a form of surprise bonus, or even temporarily "keep up the act" during combat (fighting on the "enemy side").

I think you posted in the wrong thread, Broken. Or is that intentionally OOC?

You can make a persuasion or perception check to figure out their (or rather, the Thiefling's) intentions.

I did enter the tracks though, or that's what I was trying to describe. That I'd leaped into the crawling zombie's lane and then struck it with a leap over it, also trying to lure it with my blood (which is why I used the demand duel ability, since it would fit). It wouldn't be far out of the gate at that point, anyway, so we (Rolf, cultists, me and zombie) would all be kind of close at the end of it, right?

Zombie right now is at the start of the track. Way I see it, you jumped in front of it and taunted it with your blood. It would chase after you, and unless you actually stand still and let it bite you (it's not in a position to catch anything that isn't immobile), it won't be delayed - you can only move/jump out of the track, in which case, the zombie resumes to what it can reach-the prisoner. If you back away from it to avoid it's attack, it's still moving towards the prisoner.

So, right now, that tactic wouldn't do you much good unless you're willing to let it somehow attack you when it wouldn't make sense (I find a bit of a stretch it could significantly harm you, at least for the crawling zombie).

So what will it be?

I think we've got our positions mixed up.
Using the map you posted before:

I was at the drinks stand (or on the seats a little south), which is a little south of the cages. After tripping (mocking melody-ing) the thiefling, I headed west onto the tracks and north up the lane of the crawling zombie. Meeting it as it headed south, I performed a jump over it so I would then be north of it, heading towards the zombie cages. If it would chase me, it would head north and away from the prisoners. I think my action would at least delay it momentarily. Maybe?

It just got out of the cage, so there's not enough room yet to go north of it without actually entering its cage. Maybe if it advanced a bit (leaving room for you to get "behind it" on the track), but then you'd have to navigate/switch tracks with the Dragonborn's movements in mind as well...

Also, keep in mind that the map isn't to scale/position, just a rough idea.

Okay, with this new information, can I try something else instead? If it barely left the cage, maybe I can try to keep it inside instead? How are the cages opened? By lever? If so, if I forced it back into the cage, could I simply+quickly close it? I'm thinking of trading my second action (demand duel) for a check to strike the zombie back in so I can close the gate on him.

I'll rule you'd need to make a check (athletics or acrobatics) to get them into the cage (and they might attack you if you roll poorly), for a standard action, and then another standard action to close them in the cage.

Could I get Koras to try and calm the bear? Or at least get the fellow to know that Horizon and Zthulan don't mean harm?

Well, you do have the animal/spirit empathy utility... I guess you could try to keep it from attacking you two, but it would blow the cover of both of you (since otherwise you'd calm it, and then the NPCs would attack it again, and the bear can't really tell who the good guys are), and requires a standard action as a persuasion check. All bets are off if either of you attack the bear, though.

Alternately, you could try to calm it in the sense that it stops being bloodthirsty/hostile against its captors, and opts for escape instead.
