As part of the Adventurer’s Guild’s mandate includes assisting the City Watch with maintaining law and order, a detachment of new recruits is sent to keep an eye on the carousing going on in town, and to investigate anything suspicious.
Encounter 1 – Bar Brawl (Level 1 – 575 exp)
8 Human Thugs – Level 1 Minion (25 exp each)
3 Human Ruffians – Level 2 Skirmisher (125 exp each)
The party is attacked at a bar, and is forced to defend themselves. After the dust settled, a strange coded note was found, which the party takes to a sage. However, the sage couldn’t work out the cipher used, and the party is left none the wiser…
Encounter 2 – Alley Ambush (Level 3 – 850 exp)
4 Elf Archers (reflavoured as Human archers) – Level 2 Artillery (125 exp each)
2 Human Berserkers – Level 4 Brute (175 exp each)
The party is is ambushed in an alley, where archers rained down arrows on their heads while berserkers tied them up on the group! With difficulty, the party prevails and another note is found along with a cipher key. They take them back to the sage, and find a promise to deliver a large amount of explosives to a cellar underneath the town hall, and that the conspirators plan to set it off that very night!
Encounter 3 – Gunpowder, treason and plot (Level 3 – 850 exp)
4 Human Ruffians – Level 2 Skirmisher (125 exp each)
Guido (Guy) Fawkes – Level 4 Elite Soldier (Leader) (350 exp)
The party confronts the fanatical conspirator and his cohorts in a cellar full of barrels of gunpowder! They take him down, but his dying reprisal fells poor Rock. And as the authorities clear up the mess, some questions remain — why did someone want to blow up the city hall? And who were they working for?
