Introduction - Jail Cell
You awaken to find yourself in a 5×10 jail cell. The last thing you remember was a night of hard drinking at the local tavern the previous night. How you arrived here, you do not know.
You don’t find any methods of escape.
You see a party member lying asleep in the cell opposite you.
You find a tin cup lying in a pile of hay.
Inside one players cell, theres a wooden barrel sitting in the corner. The barrel is empty. However, a Perception roll of 17 or higher allows them to check behind it.behind the barrel.
Time passes and you feel your stomach begin to growl. You think that someone must be coming soon to bring you a meal at the very least. No one does. You sit in your cell for 2 days without any food or water.You hear the sound of someone coming down the stairs. The heavy wooden door swings open and you see a group of guards come into sight, all adorned in bright red cloaks. The lead guard, a portly man with an eyepatch begins to speak.
“Well well well. If it isn’t the brave adventurers who thought they could wipe out the Red Brands all by themselves. You’re pretty quick to celebrate, eh? Did you really think that was all of us? We have eyes and ears all over this world. I have to give you some credit though. Your efforts were pretty impressive.
You let your guard down, though. He gives a menacing grin. That’s right, the barkeep is under MY employ. And let’s just say he received a handsome bonus for slipping a little something extra into your drink. (He reaches into his cloak and pulls out a vial of poison.)
No, no, don’t worry. I’m not going to kill you. I have something very special planned for you three. You’re going to work your asses off in a desolate strip mine until you die of exhaustion." He laughs.
“Too bad about your Monk friend, though. He managed to slip away before my men arrived at the tavern. I’m sure it won’t take long to find him. He’ll be joining you soon enough.”
“So you’d better get rested up. You’re leaving first thing in the morning. It’s a long way to the desert of desolation.”
