[Scalvoris] Odd Jobs, Bounties, Expeditions & Rumours

Image
Image

Following the well-known events on Faldrass, there is a 10WP Bounty on the head of Maxine (Event). She is a well-known individual who has worked with a number of people. Images of her are posted around Scalvoris, drawn by an expert artist. Anyone who harbours her will be considered complicit in the arrest. The bounty is for her alive. She is considered dangerous and reporting any sighting of her will also earn a significant reward if it leads to her capture.

Note: This is a bounty on a PC. PM Scalv Mods if you're taking it - and note that PvP will be likely unless you give information only.


Following the well-known events of the Forging (Event) and in consideration of the danger his actions put Scalvoris in, there is a 50 WP bounty (alive), or 25 WP (dead) on the head of Kalortah Satravial. He is a well-known individual who once served on the Scalvoris Council, and is now actively considered a traitor to Scalvoris. Anyone who harbors him will be considered complicit in the arrest. He is considered dangerous and reporting any sightings of him will also earn a significant reward if it leads to his capture.

Note: This is a bounty on a PC. PM Scalv Mods if you're taking it - and note that PvP will be likely unless you give information only.

Bounty Name: #1 Jewel Thief
Location: Throughout Scalvoris
Details: A burglar has been breaking into homes when empty and stealing gold, silver and jewelry. This has happened across the island and, as such there is some concern that this might be a group. No violence occurs and there is minimal property damage, just a mess left in their wake.
OOC Requirements/ Notes: None
Hazard Level: Medium
Timeframe: Ongoing
Pay/ Reward: Gift of 1 x set of Jewelry.
Additional Info: PM Peg for information before starting this ~ thanks!


Bounty Name: #2 Pirate Attacks Continue!
Location: Throughout Scalvoris
Details: Despite a few brave souls who have fought them, pirate attacks have been on the increase over the last few seasons and the authorities want to know why! There appears to be someone who has 'inside information' about how the Elements work as the pirates have been able to avoid patrols and hit weak spots specifically. Who is providing the pirates with information? Where are they hiding out? A plea has gone out for anyone who can provide information. There have been a number of attacks and the kidnapping of young women and strong men. Someone has to stop these fiends!
OOC Requirements/ Notes: Requires multiple threads
Hazard Level: High
Timeframe: Ongoing
Pay/ Reward: +2 WP to next Wealth Thread.
Additional Info: Solo, Collab, or GST! Balthazar investigated! - still open to others.


Bounty Name: #3 Informants Wanted
Location:Throughout
Details:We are seeking people to uncover and expose what we believe to be an underground slave ring in Scalvoris. The owning of slaves is illegal on Scalvoris, and we wish to break up any underground / illegal groups.
OOC Requirements/ Notes: Multiple threads required
Hazard Level: High
Timeframe: Ongoing
Pay/ Reward: +3 WP
Additional Info: PM Peg for information before starting this ~ thanks! Balthazar is investigating - still open to others.

Details: Cats are being kidnapped and killed for their fur! This must be stopped!
OOC Requirements/ Notes: Multiple threads required.
Hazard Level: Medium -
Timeframe: Ongoing
Pay/ Reward: +1 WP
Additional Info: Solo, Collab or GST! Be as wild and wacky as you like ....


Bounty Name: #5 Night Time Robberies!
Location: Scalvoris Town and / or Almund (player choice)
Details: Individuals are waking up to find that their homes have been plundered while they sleep! Richer homes are targeted, but these robbers more or less empty the place and leave a lot of mess behind, as though hiding tracks. How do they do this without anyone waking!? Any guard dogs are killed.
OOC Requirements/ Notes: Multiple threads required.
Hazard Level: Medium
Timeframe: Ongoing
Pay/ Reward: +2 WP
Additional Info: Solo, Collab or GST!!Woe is investigating!


Bounty Name: #6 Attacks on the Order!
Location: Throughout
Details: Caravans and supply trains for the Order of the Adunih are being targetted - the people / guards attacked / killed and the resources stolen. There's an insider, we think, because the attackers know routes, defences, etc.
OOC Requirements/ Notes: Multiple threads required.
Hazard Level: High
Timeframe: Ongoing
Pay/ Reward: +2 WP to next Wealth Thread.
Additional Info: Solo, Collab or GST!! Oram and Woe investigated! - still open to others.


Bounty Name: #8 Nooks Books!
Location: Scalvoris Town
Details: Someone is defacing books in the Scholars Nook! Not all books, and not randomly, but it seems that someone is deliberately redacting specific information. This is costing money, but, more importantly to Caz (the owner), it's destroying knowledge!!
OOC Requirements/ Notes: Multiple threads required. What subject is being redacted is up to you the player. However, this investigation should lead to some kind of "bigger" group.
Hazard Level: High
Timeframe: Ongoing
Pay/ Reward: 3 WP and a book collection.
Additional Info: Enjoy


Bounty Name: #9 Bookish Thief (ish)?
Location: Scalvoris Town
Details: Rose (the librarian in Scalvoris Library) is convinced that someone is breaking in and stealing books. There is never a sign of a break-in, just missing books. However, what makes this highly unusual is that, after a few days (somewhere between 3 - 10 has been the usual), the books appear again overnight, on Rose's desk ........
OOC Requirements/ Notes: None
Hazard Level: Player Determined
Timeframe: Ongoing
Pay/ Reward: 2 WP
Additional Info: Enjoy


Bounty Name: #10 A Hood In The Sweetwine Woods
Location: Sweetwine
Details: Sebastien Hood has been known to rob people passing through the Sweetwine woods late at night or in the darker seasons like Cylus and Ashan. Shortly after the attacks, a portion of the stolen money is redistributed to the poor somewhere across Scalvoris. Hood has robbed more than two dozen caravans of travelers over two arcs and has yet to be apprehended for more than a few breaks. Early on he was able to charm guards into letting him escape, but since those days he had become much more proficient at just not being caught. His crimes are robbery, aggravated assault, battery, unauthorized redistribution of wealth, unauthorized use of magic on traveling citizens (alleged, many sources claim that they were attacked by a bowman shooting fire from his bow but Elements believe he is just using flaming arrows).
OOC Requirements/ Notes: Multiple threads should be made to track, find, and subdue this foe.
Hazard Level: Medium to High
Timeframe: Ongoing
Pay/ Reward: +2 WP dead, +4 WP alive.
Additional Info: Solo or Collab. After claiming, mod will contact pc regarding skills.Submitted by Balthazar - Thank you!

[Scalvoris] Odd Jobs, Bounties & Expeditions

Image
Below are rumours which are to be found about different areas of Scalvoris. These have been informed by a number of things from both players and prophets. There are different types of rumour:

Leads A lead is a rumour which could lead to adventure, moderated plots, treasure, all sorts of things!
Gossip Gossip is a rumour which might have a kernel of truth in it, or might be a lie. It could lead to really helping, or harming someone, if you act on it.
LiesA lie is a (usually) malicious rumour which can get you, or those it is about, into all sorts of trouble. Careful!
Which is which?

So - now that you know what types of rumours there are here, how do you tell the difference? Follow them and find out! As players "claim" these rumours, I will pm them with which of the three types of rumour it is - and any other information they might need. PCs can submit rumours here, also. Templates for both below the rumours themselves.

Which Ones Can I Just Know About?

Leave that to your own common sense. If you live in Scalvoris, you might feasibly have heard about ALL of them, if you're newly arrived less so. There is no restriction on which ones you've heard of - just on how many you can pursue at any time.

How Many Can I Investigate?

If you want to investigate these rumours, you need to claim them below. No more than TWO rumours per pc at a time, please! If you haven't started / done anything with the rumour within a month, it'll go back on to the board, where it might change into something else.

When You've Started The Thread

Please pm one of us with the link and I'll update this post! Enjoy! And you'd best hope that scandal doesn't come knocking on your door!

SJ4: "They say that there's the ghost of a lost hunter roaming the jungle. He devours any he finds, because he's always hungry. But he eats dreams. Once you've met him you never dream again and become less and less human."

The Tower

RumourOutcome
TT1: "No one who goes in there ever comes out, have you noticed?"
TT2: "I've seen weird lights coming from there at night. Like, really weird. Not good."
TT3: "It's where they take the slaves to experiment on them. There's scientists in there trying to make the supreme mortal to kill the Immortals, you know. That's why the university's come, really."
TT4: "The Tower? Yeah, it's like a cork on a bottle that. It's about keeping something in. No one knows what, but it is."

Watch

RumourOutcome
WA1: "The whole thing with Watch is just an experiment in human behaviour, you know."
WA2: "There are hundreds of people living on Watch, silly, and a fleet of invisible ships, too."
WA3: "The guard that killed at the Watch? He was told a secret no one else knows. That's why they gave him alcohol all the time, because he wanted to try and forget."
WA4: "Watch and the Tower are linked, you know, under the water and beneath the island. There isn't one person on there, there's a stream of them."

Robbery At The Smith Oram

Bounty Name: #9 Robbery at the Smith ( Claimed by Oram ).
Location: Scalvoris Town and / or Almund (player choice)
Details: A smith's shop was broken into and a number of items stolen. He is offering a reward, however, for the safe return of a small wooden box containing a number of letters. This is of great personal value. The shop was broken into at night and the slave who was sleeping in the shop was killed.
OOC Requirements/ Notes: Multiple threads required.
Hazard Level: High
Timeframe: Ongoing
Pay/ Reward: Successful return of the box: masterwork weapon of pc choice.
Additional Info: Any other info?: Oram's brother Osric works for a smith in Scalvoris, so I was thinking this bounty might have a personal connection. Also, I was thinking that, since the smith in question is more the tinker/gadgeteer persuasion, the reward might take the form of something like some professionally-made bear traps or something? Or if a weapon, perhaps a crossbow?
Yarn Bomber Theo Zana

Bounty Name: #8 Yarn Bomber!
Item Type: Adventure
Location: Anywhere - Player Choice Thread in Gunvorton
Details: An individual or individuals leave small hand-made (sewn, knitted, crocheted) toys and decorations all over the place in this area. They seem to be thoughtful gifts, left to brighten the day of whoever finds them, small fabric and yarn trinkets which should bring pleasure from a random act of anonymous kindness. However many of them are found to have nasty side effects - stuffing filled with itching powder, people getting sick after holding them etc. Some recipients fall seriously ill. This person must be stopped!!
Skills Required: None
OOC Requirements/ Notes: This can be a quirky or more serious thread, depending on what you prefer.
Hazard Level: Low
Timeframe: Ongoing
Pay/ Reward: +1 WP to your next Wealth Thread.
Additional Info:Self mod – have fun! ~ solo, collab, or GST!!!
Vigilantes Woe

Bounty Name: #6 Vigilante Justice
Location: Throughout Scalvoris (mostly Scalvoris Town)
Details: There are a small group of "caped crusaders" wearing masks and sporting strange costumes and capes who are acting outside the law. Yes, they've helped by leaving a number of criminals tied up on the doorsteps of Element Hall, but they seem to have a very loose definition of "criminal", and many of their victims are innocent citizens. Plus, they look silly.
OOC Requirements/ Notes: Requires multiple threads
Hazard Level: High
Timeframe: Ongoing
Pay/ Reward: +2 WP to next Wealth Thread.
Additional Info: The Crystal Blade! - Woe will be operating on one of these bounties in Egilrun, against a vigalante known only as the Crystal Blade. It's unknown exactly whether it's a female or male, or what race they might be, but all that is known is that they're a skilled transmutation mage, as the sharpened, crystalline shackles they leave on the culprits have been shaped from magic, and degrade within a few days. Some of these 'culprits' have been high ranking members of the Glass Union, which has led to friction between the elements and the local craftsmen. The Glass Union has put out a bounty on the Crystal Blade, which was reluctantly forwarded by the local Elements. Woe's servant, Fleaface, picked up on the rumor/bounty and brought it back to Woe.
Oram - The Cow Murderer

Bounty Name: #7 The Cow Murderer
Item Type: Adventure
Location: Scalvoris Town
Details: A local farmer is asking for help. A couple of trials ago, they found a dead cow at their farm. It was obvious that the poor animal was killed. The same happened again a little later. They decided to keep watch, but somehow, a cow was killed for the third time. The farmer has thus decided to ask someone to help them, and they are willing to give whoever stops those cow murders a handsome reward.
Skills Required: None. Some combat skills could be helpful though.
OOC Requirements/ Notes: None
Hazard Level: Low to High, depending on what you do with this bounty.
Timeframe: Ongoing
Pay/ Reward: +1 WP
Additional Info:Self mod – have fun! ~ solo, collab, or GST!!! Massive thanks to Doran for this Bounty!
Balthazar - #2 Pirate Attacks Continue!

Bounty Name: #2 Pirate Attacks Continue!
Location: Throughout Scalvoris
Details: Despite a few brave souls who have fought them, pirate attacks have been on the increase over the last few seasons and the authorities want to know why! There appears to be someone who has 'inside information' about how the Elements work as the pirates have been able to avoid patrols and hit weak spots specifically. Who is providing the pirates with information? Where are they hiding out? A plea has gone out for anyone who can provide information. There have been a number of attacks and the kidnapping of young women and strong men. Someone has to stop these fiends!
OOC Requirements/ Notes: Requires multiple threads
Hazard Level: High
Timeframe: Ongoing
Pay/ Reward: +2 WP to next Wealth Thread.
Additional Info: Solo, Collab, or GST!
Oram/Woe - Attacks on the Order

Bounty Name: #6 Attacks on the Order!
Location: Throughout
Details: Caravans and supply trains for the Order of the Adunih are being targetted - the people / guards attacked / killed and the resources stolen. There's an insider, we think, because the attackers know routes, defences, etc.
OOC Requirements/ Notes: Multiple threads required.
Hazard Level: High
Timeframe: Ongoing
Pay/ Reward: +2 WP to next Wealth Thread. Rewards assigned:
Outcome: Oram rescued a healer, scouted out the Bandit camp, identified the Order insider, and called in the cavalry to make the actual arrest

#8 Bodyguarding (Praetorum)

Job Number & Name: #8 Bodyguarding
Location: Throughout the island
Details: The Order of the Adunih is branching out across the island. Whilst our cloaks are protection in the towns and villages, we require bodyguards to protect our members whilst travelling between areas of the island and in some of the more unfriendly populated areas.
Skills Required: Combat skills
OOC Requirements/ Notes: None
Hazard Level: Medium - High
Timeframe: Ongoing
Pay/ Reward: Each mission should have a mission-specific reward. Speak to Peg.

EG Tarnborg
EG2: "Tarnborg, the owner of the Lemon Messy? He's Cassion's son. No, it's true." Oram investigated!
  • Thread link = I'm lookin' for the one they call "The Cassion Kid"
  • Rewards assigned = Impact Tracker
  • Outcome: Oram goes to investigate rumors that Tarnborg, proprietor of the Lemon Messy, is a Mortal Born of Cassion. Finds out he is not, and it's just something he made up. Oram is now owed 1 favour by Tarnborg.
    Oram has an increased reputation in Egilrun because Tarnborg talks so nicely of him.

  • Thread links:
    Worlds Away
  • Rewards assigned: ] Approved for the Scalveen knowledge/ living here bonus of being awarded the language
  • Outcome:[/b. Shl'drei has found that Stan is not a "conduit" to the Immortals. However, looking through that book of dates, etc tells him that there have been a lot of Immortal sightings here in this Temple. If even half of them are half true, it's still a lot. There's something special, something else. Surely?
