The Story:

Chapter 1plugin-autotooltip__default plugin-autotooltip_bigChapter 1: Juanda's Cave

We’ve lived all our lives in this bloody canyon, and me can’t takes no more. Me hates the canyon. And me hates me companions.

Anyway, the five of us were huddled in Juanda’s ice cave. Someone tapped on the curtain entrance and Juanda opened it. Outside were two officers of the law. One of them was Glennard. I told the coppers to state their business or taste a lick of me blade.

After having agreed to split all of their spoils evenly, Blacksong, Juanda, Bernherd, and Glennard decide to get together to share tales of their past. Bernherd tells the tale of his first companion, a man so much like Blacksong that they are nearly indistinguishable.

Suspecting that the Traders Guild was going to find Black Song's secret path to the surface eventually, the party decided to lay some traps. Glennard cast a spell that would notify him if anyone tried to enter the cave. Black Song dug a pit. Behnerd made a magically malodorous malady. Juanda used her magic to block off the passage with a natural-seeming wall of stone, which could be climbed over if one knew where to look.

Cliffhanger… we picked up weapons and money in our heist and were mid discussion on being criminals.

Black Song wonders aloud if he should leave his crew or go off alone.

Someone has triggered Glenard's trap. We turn to notice a man and woman standing outside of the cave.

Juanda steps out of the woods with the Bard and Black Song. The man and woman draw swords and are wearing badges of the traders' guild. Black Song waves his hand and says “hello friends”

“we thought you might show up here.” replies the woman.

Black Song manages to hold his sword.

They correctly identify us and the woman calls the boss from within the cave. A spindly bespectacled b'gentlman, and says “Mr Song you're jig, as it were, is up.” The boss identifies himself as “Ronathan, the third highest ranking officer in the Traders' Guild.”

He threatens to arrest us for our activities at the market earlier that day if we don't show him the second path to the surface. Ronathan admires Black Song despite the fact that he tries to murder everyone he meets. “We believe you have been making trips to the surface alone and we'd like to offer you a job. We will clean up the loose ends of your misadventures today until you step out of line.”

Black Song agrees, offering his hand. We bring them to the wall and a few of Ronathan's men climb over it. “That wasn't so hard was it?” Ronathan asks menacingly once the secret of the path has been revealed.

Black Song asks in third person how we know Ronathan won't betray us and after a meal of ham, beans and rags, are instructed to meet Ronathan the next day. We find an abandoned warehouse with no indication of ownership and step inside the unlocked entrance. Upon seeing Ronathan inside, Song begins negotiating payment.
