IC-Ep 4-And the Law Won(Elliot Webb only)

Postby Mr. Handy » Sun Apr 20, 2014 2:34 am

Unknown Place
Unknown Time

Elliot came to with a splitting headache. It hurt so bad that it took him a moment to realize that his arms ached too. This was because they were manacled to the wall above his head. That wall was rough, and it appeared to be a cavern of some sort. It was partially submerged, and he was up to his neck in water. Further along the wall to his left were three empty sets of similar manacles. Before him stood the sergeant, a furious scowl on his face. In his left hand, he held a flaming torch high overhead, and with his right he was bandaging Elliot and doing a decent job of it. Elliot started to feel somewhat better.

"Ah, you're awake," he said. "It was a touch and go there for a while. Thought we might lose you. Rackham got a wee bit too enthusiastic. O' course, you may come to wish you had died..."

Elliot does a mental check of himself. Any injuries, and are my legs shackled?

"Because it's harder to question you when you're dead," said the sergeant, a grim expression on his face.

Elliot was still very badly injured and only barely conscious, but he had sustained no new injuries since he had been bludgeoned to sleep. His legs were free, albeit underwater.

"Nice little operation you have here. What is it about half the city are similar?" Elliot probes.

"We ask the questions, not you," said the sergeant. "Now, who are you? What are you doing in Dunwich? How many others are there with you?"

"Me, I'm just a tourist. Don't I get a phone call or something?" Elliot responds.

"Pull the other one, it's got bells on," said the sergeant. "You and your mates attacked us on the beach, and you'd robbed Mr. Horsham. With everything else that's been happening, you've got to be up to something. You don't have any rights here. As far as the rest of the world is concerned, you're a wanted criminal who fled from police and disappeared. Nobody's going to be looking for you here. Now, either you talk to me, or I turn you over to Y'Hali. She has ways of making you talk."

"What the hell are you talking about, I never laid a finger on him. I was just defending myself from him." Elliot protests.

"You attacked us first," said the sergeant, "and the only reason you never laid a finger on Rackham is because you're no bloody good with a knife. Now, are you going to answer my questions, or do I have to go get Y'Hali?"

"Answer your questions? You haven't asked any questions. I'm confused by this whole busness." Elliot changes his expression from confrontational and confused to worried, "Look man, I really don't know what's going on here. I'm sure you want me out of your hair as much as I want to get out of it. Let me go and You'll never see me again."

its up to you, I never thought I had a chance at that, but I'm guessing the dice gods had so much fun laughing at my knife attacks they are repaying me. I understand if there are modifiers so I fail, just le me know what happens. Or if you want to role-play it a bit more.

"I did ask you questions," said the sergeant, frowning. "Maybe you're not just pretending to be an idiot." He repeated the questions slowly and loudly. "Who are you? What are you doing in Dunwich? How many others are there with you?"

Spoiler:
He's not going to let you go, but you might manage to convince him that you're just an ordinary criminal with no idea what's going on in Dunwich.

"You're right, the name's Elliot." Elliot swallows hard like he's really scared."I'm just a two-bit con man. I ran into the old broad coming into town. I was trying to sell her some of your beach front property. She looked gullable enough. Look, I had no idea what was going on and I don't want to know."
.
"You're right about one thing, I have no idea how to use a knife or any other weapon. I'm not sure who you think I am or what group I'm in, but seriously. Did you see my fighting skills? I'm lucky I didn't cut myself." [b]Elliot [/b]looks down, "Sorry I attacked you guys, there was all this yelling and running and I thought the guy was diving at me, I just panicked."

"Yeah, well, maybe that's so," said the sergeant grudgingly. "I'll go see what my superiors want done with you. Don't go anywhere." He chuckled as he said this last, then turned around and waded away through the water. Now that he was no longer directly in front of Elliot, the only visible exit from the cavern was revealed behind him: a sloping tunnel leading upwards.

Now that I'm alone, I test the Manacles for strength or if there is a chance for me to slip out of them.

I feel around on the floor or walls for anything I might could use to help me out.

When the sergeant left, the cave was shrouded in darkness, though a faint glow came from the tunnel leading upwards. There was nothing Elliot could feel within reach that would help. He tested the manacles and found that they were too strong for him to have any hope of breaking, though someone of greater might could have had a chance. However, they were not excessively tight, and he was very agile. If he relaxed his muscles, he just might have been able to squeeze his hands out of them.

Spoiler:
Elliot, please roll DEX x 1.

At least the manacles aren't too tight.

As much as he tried, he couldn't get his hand out. He may have bought himself some time, but how much?

Elliot tried to extract himself from the manacles for a while, but he was unable to make any headway. Fortunately, his captors still seemed to be leaving him alone, and nobody disturbed him.

Spoiler:
Elliot, you may now try again.

Elliot was making a little more progress, but he still was unable to free either of his hands. He had no idea how long he had been down here, or how much longer he would be left to his own devices, but so far nobody disturbed him.

Spoiler:
Elliot, you may try again now.
