I Know His Name

Balthazar and Yeva work to stop a kidnapping.

Once an isolated and dying township, an influx of academics, adventurers and thrill seekers have made Scalvoris Town their home. From scholars' tea shops to a new satellite campus for Viden Academy, this is an exciting place to visit or make your home!

Balthazar

Experience: 15 no magic xp

Knowledge:

Interrogation x 4
Intimidation x 4
Strength x 3
Leadership x 2
Intelligence - Yeva works for the Order of Adunih

Renown: 10 for solving a crime.

Skill Usage: You overplayed your interrogation/intimidation/investigation/psychology skills. Attunement can fill certain gaps, but it doesn't not give you omniscience. It's certainly not a mind-reading magic, even at the highest level.

Loot/Losses: none

Injuries/Conditions: none

Consequences: Balthazar's interrogation 'techniques' have earned him a demerit from the Elements. A rumor has begun to spread that he's using attunement magics on random people, not just criminals. If he isn't careful, he may find himself found out and drummed out of the Elements.

Comments: Although Balthazar overplayed his abilities in my opinion, it wasn't such that it detracted too much from the story. The pacing was very well done, and the interaction between Yeva, her npcs, and Balthazar were pretty amusing and entertaining. At the end, Balthazar solved the case, but admitted to being an attuner to the criminal he was apprehending. That might've been a mistake. ;)

Yeva was adorably adorable as always. Her interaction with her npcs was very natural and very entertaining the way they engage with other pcs. I think she was very good at playing the good cop to Balthazar's bad cop. The moment where she starts writing out the beginning lines of a mystery novel starring Balthazar in her mind were amusing. I'd like to read her mystery novel if she gets to write it!

Well done and enjoy the rewards.
