Songs of Blades and Heroes campaign game 9, ‘The Heist’, was a fitting title as Bayaz and his lads "wuz robbed!"
Rumours have spread that a warband has obtained a magical artefact. A thief has been hired to steal the powerful item! Now everyone is chasing after him – the warband that was robbed is hunting him down while his employers are trying to organise his escape.
The First Law crew, having paid their share of damages to Fat Eddy, the proprietor of The Blue Oyster Bar, since the mass brawl withthe elves, spent a couple of weeks recuperating and generally keeping a low profile. Even Rudd Threetrees. It was Curden Craw, after a marathon game of dice with a couple of Gurkish traders, that became the recipient of information pertaining to some kind of magic artefact ripe for the taking in a hamlet a dozen or so leagues away.
After a long discussion, Curnden convinced Bayaz and the crew that investing in the services of a specialist would greatly improve the chances of success for this particular venture. And so it was that Grendel from the Dishonourable Guild of Thieves was contracted. After an increasingly anxious few days waiting, Bayaz eventually received a folded piece of parchment from a discreet courier, which simply read, " Belt of Strength. Meet in Ostenlet. Two days. G" a roughly draw map indicating a few isolated buildings and wooded locations was drawn on the reverse. Apparently the investment had paid off.
- Galan's elves!
Sensing his imminent demise it was all Galan could do to hold off the onslaught. But once again, luck sided with the elves and they swiftly ran to their leaders aid.
Inevitably, the greater eleven numbers told and the skirmish concluded with the First law lads wounded and beaten. Galan, battered and bruised himself, and more than a little perturbed by the ferocity of Bayaz's onslaught, ordered his warband to disengage as they had got what they wanted - the mysterious Belt of Strength.
Galan briefly held his sword in salute to Bayaz and then slunk away, melting back into the woods with his warband.
