The cult of Gyronna

Post  Koya on Sat Jul 09, 2011 8:47 pm

(OOC) this takes place now on September 8 so it is current time in game)

Molly approaches the group, a serious look on her face. With a smack on Kyrass's butt she begins talking.

"I am hearing rumors of a cult that is starting to operate in Tuskberg. From they information I was able to gather, it is a secret cult devoted to some hag-goddess named Gyronna. I am meeting a "friend" at the tavern in a few minutes so I will need to leave you soon.

(OOC) knowledge religion checks are ok here. As a reminder, you have heard the name Gyronna mentioned a few times in book one.

Wasn't that the evil cult that we found a blood soaked shrine to?

Gyronna is a goddess of Hatred, extortion and spite. Her cults represent a threat to any community, and tales abound of isolated communities throughout the river kingdoms that tore themselves apart from within due to the machinations of the angry hag's priestesses.

Those attracted to Gyronna's cult are often adulterous wives, embittered prostitutes, and spurned lovers.

(Party members can make a knowledge local or diplomacy check)

Since you said Molly isn't married, she can't be and adulterous wife. If she's a prostitute, she doesn't seem embittered. Is she a spurned lover? Not by Kyras, I'm sure. So how does she fit this description?

You can talk to the dozen or so people that meet the description. Let me know if outboard should make diplomacy checks. Also let me know if any spells are used when talking to them.

OOC: outboard?

Let's have Pythia (or at least Molly) conduct the interrogations. I'll observe, sitting so that the subjects can't see me but I can see them - through a peephole in a wall if possible, or just sitting behind the subject while he's talking to Pythia. I'll have Detect Thoughts going and use Message to communicate to Pythia. I'll also check the subject out with detect magic prior to the interrogations.

Through your talks (and detect thoughts) you are able to pick up that 7 of the 12 are likey members of the cult, but you also know that you don't have physical evidence yet.

Does anyone want to stealthly follow them?
Outright arrest them (possible unrest)
kill them outright
other option?

Are all of them hard core cult members? Do any seem like they are having second thoughts? I might be able to get this kind of info from detect thoughts.

If one of the ladies is in the cult but wants out, we can try to turn her: guarantee her freedom and maybe some money (as a last resort) in return for inside info, evidence, and/or other help in destroying the cult.

Does Molly want to be recruited and go undercover? Are we willing to have her take this risk?

I am asking to weigh any consequences or benefits.

We need to find all the leaders of the cult so we can stomp it out completely. If we do it piecemeal, leaders may escape, go underground and keep causing problems for years.

Whoever we send to spy would need to find out who and where all the leaders are so we can grab them. We'll also want any evidence of misdeeds - the scarier the better - to show the public how well we're protecting them.

I see three options for you.

1. Molly attempts to infiltrate.
2. Bo uses stealth to follow them to their meeting place.
3. You can use your bird to follow.
