Upon returning the Peregrine, you find the mood has shifted dramatically. Whispered conversation's that the expedition should be scrubbed can be heard all over the ship. As soon as you come aboard Captain Markosi comes straight to Ramona. Father Aemon also comes by and tends to everyone's wounds with a channel energy. He channeled +9 which brought everyone to full HP. Markosi: Ramona, we need to talk, everybody is scared and scared people do foolish things. Your colonist's are talking openly of Commandeering my ship, to return to Andoran. My sailor's know we don't have the food, and are keeping one hand on their weapon at all times. You must make your people disembark now, TONIGHT, at this cape if need be. Ramona: Captain, let us not talk of this on deck, it would only fuel the flames, we should go somewhere private. Ramona turns to address the party. Please speak with the other colonists, you have been ashore and they are already a little in awe of you. Help calm this situation and avoid bloodshed. I'm sure I can convince the Captain to keep us safely aboard the ship for another night. This is an RP encounter, unless you fail, then it will be a combat encounter. Scattered through the ship all the colonists have banded into four groups. Each group has one vocal agitator, speaking of mutiny. Listed below is each of the leaders, and a little of what you can overhear them telling their group. Each leader, can be defused through passing an "Influence Check", a skill check which each agitator has two to choose from. Each leader has a particular Knowledge or Sense Motive check that allows you to Discover what the influence check is (Discovery Check). You will also get a plus or minus to the influence check based on how well you RP the situation and talk the person down before attempting the influence check. Once you attempt the influence check, then the RP event over, and you are immediately passed or failed based on the check. If you can RP one other NPC in the group onto your side, they will use aid another on your influence check. Each of you will address one group. I recommend the "out of character" thread to discuss who will go to which group. Along with what you overhear the leaders saying, I will also post what skill the Discovery check is, to learn the influence check, you do not make the discovery check until you have decided who will address which group. So you will not know for certain what the influence check is before decided who will address which group. But you can make an educated guess from what you overhear. Antona Sedgewick; Human Female, Colony Soldier Spoiler Discovery Check: Sense Motive Antona: Ramona is no leader. She does not possess the skill or intelligence to found a colony or even be on a city council. She is nothing but a pretty face. She probably got the job, by applying for it on her knees. We have plenty of better leaders on this boat. Perhaps you Anya, or you Tipps; either of you can see whats in front of you better than Ramona could. After getting to know her over the length of this voyage, I will not follow her anywhere. Faedwyr Trundlebrook; Human Male, Farmer Spoiler Discovery Check: Knowledge Nature Faedwyr: C-c-c-cursed and abandoned, or perhaps it w-w-w-was abandoned because it was cursed. It doesn't matter. We s-s-s-should leave, b-b-before this curse takes us too. We could die, at s-s-s-sea. But that is better than being a-a-a-attacked by demon's, or g-g-g-ghost's in our homes. Harcourt Carrolby; Human Male, Horsebreader, family was once Nobility Spoiler Discovery Check: Knowledge Local or Nobility Harcourt: This little adventure is proving itself to be less and less profitable. None of use came to this Island to be poor. We all came to improve our lot, but Helbret, who will visit your tavern and buy your ale if word gets out that all the colonists are gone? Nobody will visit, this will not become the trading hub that Andoran wants it to be. We will all die poor and destitute on this accursed Island. Perrell Beys; Human Female, Chronicler and Scholar Spoiler Discovery Check: Knowledge Arcana or History Perrell: The Bountiful Venture Company assured us it would be safe and secure here. They sent soldiers, they were building walls, but what did that do for the first wave of colonists? There is something here more dangerous than we previously knew. It's all a matter of intelligence, we should turn around and prepare ourselves better. Perhaps send the military to establish a base first, then once its safe, we could return. I'm not saying we should abandon the colony altogether, just that we should proceed logically.
