Tick Tukk catches his breath, pissed that his plan didn't work. "Well I couldn't sneak out. Maybe you should try to break the bars with your big weapons. The bars affect the head, but not the body."

"The tattoos are keeping us in? ****ing magic, never does anybody any good. Let's see....."
He looks at the tatto on his wrist, then at the giant sword being carried by the sulking prisoner, then back at his wrist. He flexes his hand a few times then shakes his head.
"We'll call that plan B."
He straitens, his expression bright again.
"But Tick Tukk has a point. They did leave us with our weapons. While they obviously consider their cell srong enough to not bother to deprive us of our arms, they might have overestimated this prison's holding power."
He faces Marcus.
"You've got some hefty gear there. How about giving us a few swings?"

A laugh escapes his lips when the goblin falls over from his trial. Slipping through the bars had been a good plan but how did Marcus know that the goblin would let them all out once on the other side? It would be much easier to escape alone for someone so small than to be burdened by larger companions who could not hide as effectively.

Marcus sighs at the idea of taking a swing at the bars. The noise alone would attract every guard in the place. "How about instead of wasting effort now, we wait for the white haired man that the goblin spoke of. If he is coming this way, getting out of the cell won't do us much good because we will almost certainly be seen." The big man flexes his hand and peeks at the fresh ink staining his wrist. "I have a feeling that whoever is coming to pay us a visit will have some interesting words to share."

The Boy with White Hair


As you hear footsteps approaching you hear the whistling of a light hymn.
"Woooooo woooooo he came and stole the village gold."
You can see a bright flock of white hair appear from around the corner.
"Of his treasure they'd grab a hold."
He walks past the cell and goes towards the satyr.
"But then they froze it was too cold." he yells and suddenly a cold gust rushes through the cell and you hear the satyr scream in agony.
"Hehehehhe that's what happens when you steal from the family." he giggles.
He comes back towards the cell and looks around at all of you and just smiles.
"Looks like someone tried to get through the bars huh." he says nodding at Tick Tukk and then bursts out laughing.
"THATS PRETTY STUPID HAHAHHA." he manages to wipe away his tears before addressing you all.
"Alright now here's whats gonna happen I'm gonna open the gate and you guys are going to follow me, you don't have to if you don't want to.....JUST KIDDING." he laughs.
He opens the cell door and instinctively you all march in a single order out of cell and being to follow the white haired boy.
For some reason your bodies are not obeying you at all.

You make your way through the hallway and take note of the other cells surrounding you, there's numbers of corpses and people locked in and some being tortured by whatever mechanical device you could see. You are able to see easily but can make no noise. Eventually you lead a large stair case that twirls around a large green pillar which you begin to ascend. Once you reach the top you enter a large room almost like that of a cathedral and standing in front of you is the bartender, the woman in red and the security guard.

The White Haired Boy walks away from you and goes to one side where the woman in red is standing. The Bartender walks down to all of you and taps the side of his head. You all suddenly feel free to move your bodies again and instinctively reach for your weapons but as you do you notice the other three pointing guns at you and you decide better not. The man begins to tap the side of his head where the tattoo's are and then looks at the white haired boy who rolls his eyes and walks up towards you all.


WHB
"Alright here's whats gonna happen." he says rubbing his hands together.
"You're all going to take an oath of secrecy right now swearing allegiance, if you don't you die, it's that simple." he smiles pointing behind you and you turn in time to see three large minoutaurs standing behind you with giant axes and hammers.

Well this whole thing is... rather boring. I understand the want to make oneself look tough but the long walk did nothing to add to the gravity of the situation. As the man finishes speaking Tharik looks upon the assembled group, "I swear to whatever you wish me to swear to I suppose."

"Well, that was oddly worded." Guy thought to himself. He glanced down at the tattoo. "I wonder if the oath will be enforced by magic, or if they'll take us on our honor. Judging by that cell, I don't think I'll be so lucky as to get the former. Crap, I wish I knew more about magic. He left himself wide open with that phrasing. Do magic oaths work by the letter of the law, or the spirit?"He turned to look at the minotaurs, then smiled and waved at them.
"Well it's a gamble I guess. And if worse comes to worse, there's always plan B." he swallows and turns to the boy.
"Well kid, you have us by the short hairs." he replies jovially. His right hand covers his heart, his left hand raises, and he closes his eyes and intones gravely.
"I, Guy Southside, do solemly swear my unfaltering secrecy and allegiance."He opens one eye and peers and the White Haired Boy, grinning.
"Like so?"

Tick Tukk hated being under anyone's command, but he also liked living. So he looks at the lady in red and says, ”I, Tick Tukk... as he says his name he launches a color spray straight up from his left hand. “Swear my allegiance and loyalty." And pose.

Marcus glares at the 'bartender' after the group is led from the cell and brought to the room. He ignores the white haired boy completely, his rage a white hot poker with one target. When the white haired boy asks for allegiance and the others give it so readily the large man snorts disgustedly. "Tell me, Garen, was this necessary? After the knowledge I shared with you, did you think that you needed to go through all this to put me to work? You know I need someone as a benefactor. You know why I came to this place. Had you but asked for me to work for you and offered to help me, I would have agreed. Maybe not right away but I would have agreed and you would have had a new ally instead of a new lackey. As it stands, I will pledge my allegiance and keep to your stipulation of secrecy but you will find that I perform only to standard. You will get nothing extra from me, swine. There will be no above and beyond the call of duty from my sword arm." His disgust grows and extends to himself when he realizes that he has given his allegiance just as easily as the others but he continues, "This will not be forgotten. I will do as I must for now but one day you will pay for forcing me into this." He knows how hollowly his sentiments reverberate throughout the room but Marcus does not care. He has meant everything he's said and will do his best to make it truth. Especially the part where the bartender pays. Especially that.

The bartender
As you all swear your allegiance in your....certain ways the bartender begins to tap the side of his head in a rhythmical sound. The white haired boy starts to hum a tune very smoothly and the red headed woman begins to slowly sing in a very high and beautiful voice;

"They came to the village with roses red like wine,"

The white haired boy joins in:

"Trodding through the flaky white snow,"

They harmonise:

"What they found was what the other could not find,"

The bartender steps forward and you all hear in your minds:

"The right handed man who was mute not blind."

At this moment all of you feel the tattoo's glowing and a surge of energy rush through you all and you feel stronger than you ever have before, it's incredible. You look at the bartender who simply seems to be smiling and you begin to hear his voice echo in your minds.

"I apologise for all the roughness and secrecy but it was all required especially for those who find themselves candidates to meet the king.My name is Garenous Elfavourae Delumtio, but everyone call me Garen, and you four have come in search of the King of the Underworld, for whatever reason it may be."

He begins to pace back and forth.

"Usually we kill anyone searching for the King but the four of you are quite powerful indeed, a lot of potential I can see within you that makes me think you may be worthy to meet him, as a result I've taken you all here and marked you with HIS insignia. This way everyone knows you are one of the Kings underlings."

He pulls back his sleeve to reveal the same tattoo but elaborated and more elegant with a complete sleeve, the white haired boy pulls his collar back to reveal one on his neck and the red woman lifts her skirt a little to show hers on her ankle.

"The reason we had to swear the oath was to full recognise the tattoo's ability, by swearing allegiance you activated its first form granting you all additional strength as it seems. It also allowed two very important things, one for me to be able to communicate with you and two to allow you to begin your trials to meet the King."

He stops and looks up at you all.

"Before I continue are there any questions?" you hear in your minds.


OOCEVERYONE IS NOW LEVEL 3 !!!!!
ALSO DUE TO THE TATTOO BEING ACTIVE YOU ALL GAIN A +1 TO ALL SAVING THROWS and +1 TO ALL CHECKS!

Guy examines his mark once more, a slight frown on his face. It disappears when he looks up, replaced by a wide grin.
"Just one."
He makes a fist and punches palm of his other hand.
"What's our first job?"

"I have many but few you are likely to have answer to. Let us be on our task so I can prove myself worthy of your esteemed king. Ohh and one more thing, if you all ever put me in a cage again I will not hesitate to tear your collective throats out."

Picking his nose Tick Tukk asks, “Will our gracious king supply us with gear and supplies?" He offers a booger to everyone and then eats it if everyone refuses.

The Tattoo'd ManThe tattoo'd man looks at you and smiles.
"You will be put into two groups, Guy and Tharik shall go with Igalo and head north to collect some money that needs to be taken from a certain gang that hasn't been paying their taxes to us. You must get it by any means necessary but may only kill one person, or there will be consequences." the white haired boy waves at the two of you.

"The other two shall head south with Meldrina to collect a package that needs to come back here, you must not lose it and it must not be damaged, not matter what. If it doesn't come here or is too damaged, we're going to have a problem." he smiles as the lady in red bats her eyelashes at you.

"You will be provided with equipment when you reach the surface, good luck and don't die." he giggles disappearing from sight as if blurring from reality.
The other two begin to walk towards two separate stair cases.


OOCNow is the time for questions.

"So how exactly do you plan on going about this with only being allowed to kill one of the fools?"
