Scene 14a - raw
~[She regains consciousness a dimmed conference betwixt them. Lord ingald and another crewman nodded and pointed at her. he was having a companion help him walk. ]~
_"Where is Joss?" She meant both him and the thing inside him._
[lord Ingald said it left through cracked glass window. ]~
_ "We have to find Joss." She said, standing up with great pain from her broken arm._
~[ she was being deliberately restricted by magic. He would not allow her to leave without her cooperation to get the thing back under his command. ]~
_ Greta wasn't surprised to learn that Ingald had a change of heart regarding the entity and its power. Though he had never outright rejected it. Then why did it attack, Ingald? Had his confession broken some sort of pact?
She didn't really care. "Can you help me find it?"_
Result: 8 -- EXCEPTIONAL YES][Lord Ingald smile. He found it with black magic. Noel had gone into hibernation at a local cemetery. There was a strange addition to a mausoleum that he'd found there when he began fiddling with black magic. ] ~
_"Release me and we'll get on with the task."_
~[Not until she handed over some of her life force to make him stronger. Then, after he had killed Noel and got it totally vulnerable, he would set her free. ]
_[I will try to escape first. Seems like only magic would work. Goal: Break the magical bonds. Fail.] She attempts to break the bonds, but Ingald counteracts with an intensification of the bonds that causes her great pain. _
~[If she won't surrender it, ingald will take it without her cooperation. ]~
_ [Hell no, if I can help it.] "Never!" [Magic conflict. Take HIS life force to heal myself instead . 1, fail. Incapacitated again.] Ingald overtakes her.
[re roll to gain narration rights. Use Ingald's relationship . 6. Fail. Ingald is injured again.] _
~ [narration of Ingald’s injury: Greta passes out after she sees Ingald suffer a loss of control over his black magic. He had his hair instantly bursting in white light. it burned his skin. ]~
~[She wakes up in the basement (dungeon).] Still magically bound.~
_Her only hope, she feels, is to escape and find Joss before Ingald gets to him. [goal: escape. Magic. 2, fail. Incapacitated.] The effort drains her and she passes out again.
[reroll for narrative rights. Joss relationship. ] Possessed Joss Invades the Keep looking for her probably to use her somehow against Ingald. When he finds her incapacitated, he tries to break her magic bonds and take her somewhere else (goal). [magic. 5 fail. He incurs another injury]_
~[ his plan fails hopelessly, when suddenly something appeared to hold his breath. Noel began coughing violently. He couldn't breathe and grabbed his throat desperately. Then he slumped unmoving. ]
[Greta gains consciousness in the same room. Noel's body lying still on the floor, blood oozing from his mouth.
Ingald behind him. He turned to her and smiled. My body still pulsed with Sophia's (Greta's) life force like a hot sun. He was not so sure about letting go of her.]~
_ Greta can only glare at him. at the moment, she is too weak to take him on. Better to bide her time. [And this is my way to request that the next scene be a recovery one, because starting out injured just doesn't favor me probability wise.]_
~Each day that Greta is awake there is a chance that Ingald will harvest her life force. [ each day is much like the rest except when Ingald again taking her life against her will. ]~
_ Each day Greta fights him or her bonds with all he might, not losing hope of overcoming either. She had promised to herself that she would escape or kill Ingald before she died, if that was her fate.
[I will alternate goals between killing Ingald when he tries to drain her or simply escaping. Conflict is always magic.
Goal: escape(odd)/kill Ingald (even) 7,8,4,2,4,2,7,7,6,7,5,6,10
Success on the 13th try, so I escape without getting to kill Ingald.]_
~[For 12 months she grieved Joss and continued to degenerate as Ingald again and again reached into Sophia's body and mind, leaving her utterly drained and powerless. Finally, on one dark night, she reached into her mind, what remained of it-and yes, something shocking her into action, she gave it all she had left. She knew that her entire being was set free.
how she made it outside? She couldn't tell. She was in the water drain from before. she passed out from exhaustion and found Gunnar was watching her carefully when she came to. ]~
_ "Gunnar...I need help…Find Fergus...I'm weak."_
~[ she had aged almost three decades. (Wow)]~
_[it took 20 rolls (2,8,6,4,2,5,6, 3,5,4,5,3,2,4, 1,6,1,7,7,10) to get a magical success, so almost two years of recovery (good thing I didn't try a scene for each). Since each failure is incapacitation, the GM gets to narrate what happened.
I also want to find out what happened while she was captive and in recovery. ]_
~[ Greta was rescued by her friends. They looked after her in a nearby forest bear cave. They showed up with water, food, blankets and made her as comfortable as possible.
For almost two years she tried to heal damaged being, but it was a long process.
eventually she came back to her normal self-- though she wasn't exactly the same. She still looked aged; a reminder of what she had been through. ]~
_ [Mechanically she is no longer harmed in any way.] she was still sad about Joss, and was carrying a burden
Why not just do things by fiat, like a GM would? I'm very particular about sticking to my rule of requiring PC action to make desired outcomes happen (even if it means bending the base RPG rules).
~[Kragg Keep had deteriorated into something of a nightmare. He took all he wanted.
this is what she'd come to know from my brothers. ]
_ [spread the rumor that she had been found, still weak. Tempt Ingald's thirst for power and cause him to come capture her. In this case, she
Disguises herself as an old beggar man to spread the rumor among the most gossipy of farmers.
Conflict social. Goal: Deceive Everyone into thinking she's been found at her Hideout, still weakened and helpless, thereby spreading a rumor that causes Ingald to come looking for her. Roll: a 9. (Whew) Success. ]_
[Greta spends a few days visiting gossipy farmers to ask for alms and bring news of strange people in the surrounding forest.
The farmers, who were probably scared of her, took the news and spread them like fire. The men in the watchtower were the ones who'd been ordered to keep an ear on any information. they heard about her from the lips of the farmers who carried their scant produce into town.]
This is what she heard from Fergus, who knew someone in the guard.~
_ Greta asked for daily reports from Fergus. _
[ Eventually he heard that story come to their highest level of the authorities. ]~
_Greta would prepare a trap for Ingald and his retinue, in order to ambush them before they could do anything. She would require a ram's head to disguise as herself lying down. [goal: be able to surprise and ambush them. Conflict social. An 8! Success.]_
~ After (1d10) 8 days of rumor spreading, Ingald and (1d10) 5 soldiers showed up at [her house. They were no more aware of her presence.
Ingald and the others laughed] when they found 'her' lying helpless on the cave's floor.
["What a big coincidence after all this time," ] he said.
["you were supposed to be at my side like a good little girl."]
_ Greta snuck behind them and said, "There is nothing little about me, Ingald. I've always been too much woman for you."
Greta throws a punch at his face as she finishes saying that.
[this will be an action by action fighting conflict. I'm killing this mofo & his lackeys for all he put Greta through (goal). A 6. GM narrates first success (need 3 out of 5)]_
~[she hits him with her fist and he flew three feet back into someone standing next ] to him. [They both landed against the ] cave [wall. ]~
_ Before they get up, Greta wants to grab Ingald and throw him against the rest.
"You would have been better off killing me,"she says, lifting him by his collar.
[a 4. This is going to be cake. GM narrates. ]_
~ She throws [the man into his personal guards like a giant sack of flour. They all fell together.] ~
_ she straddles him before he has a chance to get up. Then, cradling his face in her hands, her own face very close to his, very intimate, she tells him: "Taking what didn't belong to you is biggest mistake of your short life. Stealing is punishable by death in this town, isn't it?"
[Of course she's going to twist & break his neck. A 2. Hasta la vista, baby.]_
~ [[he reminded her that she was still clinging to her ] belief that she was better [than he . But she was wrong. Noel's blood was on her hands] too because of her own damn heart was worth more than anything. ] (ingald thinks theyrevthe same because Greta acted as if what she wanted was more important than the mayhem she caused.)~
_ "Go to hell, Ingald." _
~ She breaks his [neck like a twig. it snapped audibly. ] The rest of the men [were looking nervous and afraid. They turned and flew into the dark green ] forest.
gunnar and Fergus [were there after he'd learned of the news. She would have to fight every man was following her. (every soldier looking for her). ]~
_ "What about you and your families?"_
~[ in the same way she had undermined his confidence, they would attack against his last feeble remains ] (in the same way she defeated him, they would take care of his remaining forces, which were weakened.). [ you are free of this mission. It was not her concern ] anymore. ~
_She was also wondering if the entity had been destroyed with Ingald. She wasn't even sure if it had lived inside him or was imprisoned like she had been.
"Maybe you are right this time, Fergus, but there is one more thing I must take care of."
[I sense for the presence of the entity. Conflict magic.a 5. Fail. Inconvenienced.No rerolls worth risking for this. It'll just have to remain an open question for now. I get to narrate the failure.]
I try to concentrate on sensing this entity, but it's either gone or hiding itself from me. Fergus and Gunnar didn't help things when they interrupted to tell me I was taking too long and really needed to leave.
[It really is time to start wrapping things up and saying our goodbyes to our friends.]
She picks up Gunnar for a big hug, and she also embraces Fergus with one arm.
"Thank you for being my friends. I will come back one day. When I do, I hope to find you here and that things are better." [with this, I'm releasing these relationships]._
~[ They were both reluctant to let go, but knew that they had to. My heart aches, but my heart was still clinging to the hope that she returned. ] (they also are saddened that she has to leave, but they also hope that she'll return as she promised ) ~
- with that, she finishes her goodbyes and turns around to start walking back into the forest, with no particular destination in mind, but wherever the road takes her._
~ [they eyes looked at her sadly toward as she walked into the distance and disappeared into the forest.]
