Hallowed Halls and Shallow Graves

HH&SG: The Union

The night has already fallen. The moon is hign and the clouds look close to rainfall. It begin to drizzle as near by persons take shelter at a tavern and inn called The Empty Palate. Inside everyone stepped and found the air warm and the people merry. With drinks abound and a sense of merriment in the air, no one would ever suspect that a couple of patrons here, were here for a more deadly reason.

First as a free action hide in plain sight then a spot check

HH&SG: The Union
 

hide in plain sight? a level 17 ranger spell?

HH&SG: The Union
 

Like you said assassin is not in books and on the wiki I get it I swear otherwise I wouldn’t have gotten it

HH&SG: The Union
 

kk…roll:19. You hide almost perfectly with the crowd. From what the letter you received from the Gilda dei Sole, you are looking for a man in a brown cloth so you look around…roll: 14. You see a few people wearing brown, near the bar…

HH&SG: The Union
 

I have a +4 to spot sorry I’ll add the skills from now on

HH&SG: The Union
 

You notice a man with an especially dirty cloth. one that has seen better days. The man is just sitting there…

HH&SG: The Union
 

ill do a
Listen check(+7)

HH&SG: The Union
 

roll: 4(+7)= 11. You don’t think he’s saying anything. He glances your way but his eyes divert back to the empty glass in front of him

HH&SG: The Union
 

Btw ezio is wearing his assassins clothing over his studded leather
Back on topic
He will approach the man carefully

HH&SG: The Union
 

You carefully approach the stranger. He leans toward the bartender and whispers to him. The bartender places a drink at an empty stool next to the stranger. “If you’re going to stalk me-” said the stranger “-at least make sure you’re not thirsty.”

HH&SG: The Union
 

“who are you” I ask and use detect poison on the drink

HH&SG: The Union
 

Enter’s bar and do a spot check for anyone fitting the description of the picture

HH&SG: The Union
 

It’s a d20 +3 for my knowledge in poison

HH&SG: The Union
 

roll:20 Crit: 12. You perfectly examine the glass. While tavern glassware isn’t known for being the cleanest, there’s nothing wrong with the drink at all. In fact, you notice from the floating debris in the glass that the drink is Florentine Spring water. Very clean, very classy. “Isn’t it polite to introduce yourself before asking questions?”

HH&SG: The Union
 

“pardon me…I am Ezio…Ezio Auditore de Firenze…and you are?”

HH&SG: The Union
 

Dennis: You enter the tavern. There’s a lot of people who fit the description. And they’re drunk too…eh…peasants…

Q: You examine the glass. Still nothing wrong. The stranger stares while feeling his empty glass.

HH&SG: The Union
 

“Well, Ezio Auditore de Firenze. That’s a name right there. Hello. My name is Nero Angelo del Luna dei Cacciatore…you may now ask me your questions…”

HH&SG: The Union
 

“your quite the drinker Nero may I ask what your doing here?” do a spot check(4) and a listen check(7)

HH&SG: The Union
 

Walk up to the bar and sit down

HH&SG: The Union
 

Q:spot: 5 listen: 19. You don’t see anything suspicious but someone just walked in. You heard them through the door…but nothing to be concerned about. “I’m here waiting for a friend…just arrived I think. I can smell the fine cologne and fine cloth.”

Dennis: You walk in. There is a lot of people here…where to start?

HH&SG: The Union
 

Listen check and another spot check

HH&SG: The Union
 

Dennis: listen; 14 spot; 19. You hear a lot of drunk people..ew…and something about drinking and cologne from the bar. And then you spot him. The shaggy brown cloth man. He’s speaking with another man, casually dressed.

HH&SG: The Union
 

Use sense motive (+7)“I see what is so special about this place? Why meet here?”

HH&SG: The Union
 

Approach them

“Good evening gentlemen, sorry to intrude. I am Lucio Bianchi de Roma.” to the man in teh shaggy brown cloth “I believe you sent me a letter to meet you hear” Eyes the person the man is talking to. “And you are?”

HH&SG: The Union
 

“I am Ezio Auditore de Firenze..you two know eachother?”

HH&SG: The Union
 

Q: Sense Motive: 17+7. the stranger is hard to read. He’s obviously concerned about something dire.
“I’m here because you wouldn’t meet us in the city now, would you?” He turns to a properly dressed man behind him “Would you? I know you’re listening. Come, come. Sit down.”

Dennis: You notice the man at the bar is your contact but are startled when he turns and says in your direction “Would you? I know you’re listening. Come, come. Sit down.” The stranger invites you to sit.

HH&SG: The Union
 

“well well well. Ezio Auditore de Firenze and Lucio Bianchi de Roma.”

HH&SG: The Union
 

“i ask the guilds to send me heroes and they send me you two?”

HH&SG: The Union
 

“Well, beggars and choosers i guess.”

HH&SG: The Union
 

“Very well, come with me up stairs.” the stranger known as Nero walks to the inn rooms above the tavren floor

HH&SG: The Union
 

gets up “I have other business to attend to you men enjoy the rest of your evening” free action hide in plain sight 10feet away from where they are sitting(I don’t need to roll for hide because it’s my class feat) listen check(+7)

HH&SG: The Union
 

sits down "Hello Ezio Auditore. lowers voice to a whisper and speaks to the shaggy man “Sir, the Medici Family had sent me only telling me that this is important, what has happened that would cause such a disturbance?”

HH&SG: The Union
 

Dennis: “well…our Sole friend seems to have more fun watching us from afar so come, we’ve much to discuss upstairs”

Q: Listen: 24. You hide and listen to the conversation but you hear “…our Sole friend seems to have more fun watching us from afar so come, we’ve much to discuss upstairs”. You realize that he knows you’re still there! Just how good is this man?

HH&SG: The Union
 

follows the man upstairs

ooc: you guys posts way too fast, my initial post where Lucio whispers is in respeonse to nero asking him to sit down

HH&SG: The Union
 

lol right?

Dennis: you follow the man to the second floor where the rooms are rented out to patrons to sleep. you enter a room and the man sits down and waits.

HH&SG: The Union
 

Ooc: sorry Tony
“damn…follows them up stairs…just who are you?why was I given this letter?”

HH&SG: The Union
 

Ooc: sorry Tony
“damn…follows them up stairs…just who are you?why was I given this letter?”

HH&SG: The Union
 

position self next to the door and grips sword ready to draw

“Why is a dog from the Gilda de Sole here? Who are you exactly?”

HH&SG: The Union
 

ooc: that is not an intimidation, but rather a precaution incase a gilda de sole member goes to attack him

HH&SG: The Union
 

“your masters were ordered to aid us in a struggle that is of the most dire consequence. It matters little who you work for now. You both work for us now.”

HH&SG: The Union
 

takes a combat stance I was given this letter to meet here…"*shows letter*

HH&SG: The Union
 

takes a combat stance I was given this letter to meet here…"*shows letter*

HH&SG: The Union
 

scoffs at the man in white keeping his guard up

To the shaggy man “Who are you, and who do you work for that would have the Medici Family work with the Gilda de Sole?”

HH&SG: The Union
 

“I’ve been alive for many years now…I’m working for the people you call…the Vatican. They seem to share my concern with a problem thats been happening all over the continent.”

HH&SG: The Union
 

“Medici?….ha ha ha…my good sir I no longer work for the sole as you can see by my clothing I am part of the assassins guild…I mean you no harm”

HH&SG: The Union
 

looks at the man "problem? What problem?

HH&SG: The Union
 

“your friends in the guise of drunks seem to disagree…and you Mr.Medici, will have to work along side Ezio to figure out whats been going on lately. It seems that a relic of great value has been stolen from the Holy Roman Empire…”

HH&SG: The Union
 

Shocked immediately kneels towards the shaggy man with his head down and his right hand over his heart

“Please forgive me Padre, I had not realize you were the agent of the Vatican. There was no inclination in the letter that even pointed to the Vatican asking this. And I was not told by my superiors.”

Lucio was cursing himself in his head for acting in such a manor to the organization he wished to one day work for protecting his Holiness from any threats and keeping one Christianity’s most holy and sacred grounds from it’s foes.

HH&SG: The Union
 

“I see well mr. Medici? goes to shake hand can we work together?” looks at the man “what’s in it for my guild of assassins?”

HH&SG: The Union
 

“What ever his holiness ask of me, I will carry out.”

HH&SG: The Union
 

The man laughs. “Heh, no need to apologize. I’m a messenger nothing more Lucio. now, the relic…it’s…a relic that has been rumored to give life to the dead. Normally, the Empire’s forces would’ve intervened by now except graves have been robbed and left empty all over Italy and the Pope believes the devil is at work here.”

HH&SG: The Union
 

“sending in an army is too visible. we need the shadows of Italy to quickly and quietly end this threat. Your reward shall be given to you by His Holiness, himself.”

HH&SG: The Union
 

listen check(+7) to see if anyone is listening outside the door" I see is there anything we assassins get out of this?"

HH&SG: The Union
 

listen check(+7) to see if anyone is listening outside the door" I see is there anything we assassins get out of this?"

HH&SG: The Union
 

stands up and shakes “If that what his holiness requires then I will work with you Assassino.” Faces the Vatican Messenger. “Very well, where was the last sighting of the grave Robbings? And Satin will fall by our lord’s holy might.”

HH&SG: The Union
 

“then you have my help and my assassins”

HH&SG: The Union
 

looks at lucio “then name is Ezio”

HH&SG: The Union
 

Roll: 15. No one appears to be listening, but you do hear drunkards trying to find their rooms outside. The man says “The latest town hit by this devilry is the town of Livorno. It’s not far from here. Just head toward the sea. Now, if you’ll excuse me…” and with that, the man leaped out of the window and disappeared into the darkness of night

HH&SG: The Union
 

“what a strange man…shall we head back down stairs?”

HH&SG: The Union
 

Watches as the man leaps out of the window and disappears

“Lucio, lets head to Livorno a dawn, I must report back.”

Lucio moves to leave the room
HH&SG: The Union
 

follows him down stairs“so your a Medici?”

HH&SG: The Union
 

Lucio leaves to report back to his area master, Giovanni Develo.

HH&SG: The Union
 

once down stairs goes to leave the bar.

“Si, My family has always supported them since Giovanni’s rise. I was born and raised in Roma.” Lucio says as he opens the door.

HH&SG: The Union
 

Stop check(4) listen check(7) and search(+8) when I get back down

HH&SG: The Union
 

Dennis: You travel back to a secret Medici safe house where Giovanni awaited a response.

Q: A little troubled working with old foes, a man in disguise calls you over. you recognize the man a Javier Espada, the area master for the Gilda dei Sole

HH&SG: The Union
 

walks over“hello old friend”

HH&SG: The Union
 

Dennis: Giovanni rushes over to you and says “Ah, Lucio! Back from your commissione. What have you to report?”

Q: You had spotted this man quickly, with your hand on your sword, you listen to him as he speaks quietly. "Ezio? Ezio, mi hermano! We miss you back home. You meet our wierd amigo, si?

HH&SG: The Union
 

“Giovanni, Salutes The Vaticano has requested our assistance in aiding them in what His holiness believes to be the Devil’s work. Graves have been robbed and corpses missing. I was asked to ride to Livorno. Also, an holy artifact went missing. The artifact was rumored to give life to the dead. The only down fall is that he wants cooperation with an Assassino known as Ezio Auditore. Auditore claims to be a former member of the Guilda de Sole and has started a Guild of Assassins. I do not trust him fully, but until I can figure if he speaks truth or not, He will only know that I am a Medici. And where I hail. If he makes a move in favor of the Guilda de Sole I will strike him down.”

HH&SG: The Union
 

Si, I’m working with a Medici…but my brother like I said I’m starting up my assassins guild I will help as much as o could though"

HH&SG: The Union
 

The contact says a relic is missing and I have to work together with a medici

HH&SG: The Union
 

The contact says a relic is missing and I have to work together with a medici

HH&SG: The Union
 

Dennis: Giovanni thinks and says “Well done, fratello. Master Piero will be pleased. Proceed as planned and strike the Sole dog down if you must and serve his holiness but…should you find the relic…return it to me immediatamente, comprendere?”

Q: Javier nods and continues "Very well then Ezio. The Medici are corrupted. Keep a close eye on the cur. Still, Padre Apollo would be most pleased to see you. You need a horse, no? Come tomorrow to the church, we help you out. De acuerdo?

HH&SG: The Union
 

Si, I will come to church tomorrow, now if you will excuse me I have to attend to some more thing"

HH&SG: The Union
 

“Comprende, but shouldn’t Master Leonardo or Master Piero decide whether it goes to the Vaticano?”

Lucio speaks curiously awaiting the champions response. He has no intention of disobeying orders but he wants to understand them.

Sense motive check

HH&SG: The Union
 

outside in the rain spot check(4) and listen(7)

HH&SG: The Union
 

Dennis: Roll:9. You sense that the champion is tense but then again, he’s always tense…must be his working too late. Giovanni assures you that the relic will only aid the Medici family and leaves you to your mission.

Q: Javier smiles and nods. He exits the bar and leaves on horse back.

HH&SG: The Union
 

outside in the rain spot check(4) and listen(7)

HH&SG: The Union

“I need to ride to Livorno, brother. May I use a horse? Giovanni, has told me to proceed as planned.”

HH&SG: The Union

HH&SG: The Union
 

Q: Spot:7+4-2= 9 Listen: 4+7-2= 9. It’s hard to see and the sound of wind and rain make it hard to hear…plus you’re getting soaked…so you sleep well, but with soaked clothes, you are only rested. You hitch a ride to the church where Javier hands you a spotted horse. “Good mission mi hermano. And remember, Padre Apollo looks to see you soon.”

Dennis: Waking up very well rested, you head down to the stable .The stable hand nods, having heard from Giovanni. He leads you to a sturdy black horse. “This one’s for you. Pick my Giovanni himself. Good luck friend”

HH&SG: The Union
 

“Benne brother. Let the rise of the Medici continue forever.” Lucio gets on the horse and rides to the tavern to meet with the assassin he is to work with.

HH&SG: The Union
 

yawn "you ready mr. Medici?

HH&SG: The Union
 

The two would-be-adventurers both ride to the tavern. Waiting for them is the stranger man they had met before, Nero. Awaiting their arrival, he spoke. “Seeing ass you’re both here, I see the Guild Wars has been put on hold until this crisis is over, yes?”

HH&SG: The Union
 

Yes…they have I have No problem with the Medici cur

HH&SG: The Union
 

“Si, lets head to Livorno,” Lucio begins to ride towards the sea following the directions the Vatican agent had given them. He kept alert for anything suspicious during their ride.

HH&SG: The Union
