Temptation & Righteousness

I will be doing this thread much like Baldur’s Gate Diaries. I have laid the groundwork of the story I wish to pursue and I am going to keep things secret for now as to what is going to happen.

Please keep all off-topic posts in the OOC thread. I want only my posts to be in this thread please.

OOC Thread


Chapter 1: A Master of His Craft

“Barking… why did I never consider the dogs?” The rogue grumbled and stuffed another scroll into his pack. He took another look around the room, a crude misproportioned guantlet laid on the table.

"Ah! A wonderful piece for my collection." Edwin quickly seized the worthless booty and slipped out the window. He jumped into the adjacent tree and acrobatically hopped down several branches. The dogs found the crafty rogue just as he touched ground. Edwin remained calm and well-composed. He cut their throats as they lept at him, their drool and blood splattering on his feet as their limp bodies hit the ground. This guy was good; he was one of the best. You would think he was a swashbuckler, but he was far too proficient in deception and backstabbing. You might even call him an assassin as well.

For those that are unfamiliar with such terms, a swashbuckler is a common term for a pirate. These rogues are masters of the sword, so proficient that they could easily defeat the most seasoned fighters. However, unlike most, they are ineffective assassins. Most seasoned rogues are able to kill their foes with a single blow to the back without their victims ever knowing of their presence.

Edwin looked around the estate, not a single threat nor trace of trouble. He arrogantly walked to the edge the estate and climbed a vine covered stone wall. He jumped down and laughed at the pathetic resistance of this excursion. Taking his time, the rogue adjusted his load to a confortable fits and headed for the docks district to meet his friends. However after taking but a single step the points of numerous arrows revealed themselves. He was surrounded by the authorities. Any sudden move would be the end of him. He smirked ever so slightly and slowly raised his hands.

'If only you knew you were all gonna be dead in a few minutes,' thought Edwin. Several guards came over and slammed him against the wall ripping of his pack and various other sharp contents well-concealed around his waist, up his sleeves, in his boots and underneath his armor. After a thorough search the guards found a pack full of booty, some high quality leather armor, two katanas, and well over a dozen daggers.

Edwin had been stripped down to nothing and was given a few dirty rags to keep from being an obscenity. The rogue couldn't help but make a snide remark as they dragged him away.

"You sure you got all of them? Legend has it I can magically **** them out. You might want to be careful about that," said Edwin.

"A wise crack like that is gonna cost ya," snapped one of the guards, by far the biggest one of them all. A sharp punch to the gut and Edwin folded over weasing, gasping for breath. They throw his limp body into the carriage and slam the door shut locking him away. He sits up leaning against one of the walls and let out a yawn stretching his arms finding a comfortable position. He situated himself and sighed, rolling his eyes, shaking his head.

A voice looms from outside.

“Make sure you get every weapon, every piece of metal off his body. Strip him down to nothing if necessary. This man is extremely dangerous and can pick just about any lock with practically nothing. Oh and make sure you take care of the stolen goods. The usual procedure.”

The guards were no less greedy than Edwin, just a bit more tactful. They would return a couple of possessions to the owners of the estate to keep them quiet, but they would proclaim that Edwin had hidden the rest of his plunder at an unknown location and would be given a bit of mercy if he was to confess where he had hidden the loot, very well knowing that he had hidden nothing. And even if he was to confess, in so many words, their “mercy” would simply be a quick and painless execution. Edwin knew he must find a way out of this mess. But he remained calm as the door opened and several guards chained him up at the wrists and ankles.

"To the stocks," ordered the same looming voice. The rogue still had a few tricks left beginning his plan. He jolted around inside the carriage as hard as he could, stomping, kicking, screaming, anything he could do to prompt one of the guards to come into the compartment and personally restrain him. He got what he wished. One of the guards came into the carriage and pummeled him. Edwin pretended to be helpless playing up the same act as before and the guard was more than satisfied after merely a few kicks to the gut and punches to the face.

“You pathetic piece of ****," the guard said condescendingly as he spat tobacco juice from his chew onto Edwin's old rags. "Can’t even take a beating like a man? And they call you dangerous. HA!” The guard gave a sneer at Edwin, before he locked the door back up.

Edwin laughed to himself at the gullibility of the guard. He waited for the perfect time to initiate the second part of his plan. That time was at the moment the carriage took off again. He bent over as far as he could and reached above his head searching through his hair until coming across his most beloved treasure, a thin piece of metal, his favorite lock pick. Within seconds Edwin was completely freed, yet he kept the shackles deceptively around his ligaments as though they were still securely attached. The rogue would make noise once more. It wouldn’t take much to get the guard to come out again. Not but a single insult and a stomp before the carriage came to an abrupt halt.

“So you think you’re a wise guy, do you?” said the guard. Edwin laughed at the guard. 'Can't think of anything better to say, can you?' thought the rogue. He remained silent waiting for the guard to storm in like a fool. The guard opened the door with a glare of rage on his face. Edwin remained motionless, waiting for the right moment to act. The guard stepped inside and closed the door. With all the willpower to hold in his excitement, Edwin stays seated and drops his head. This was more than just a chance to Edwin. This was going to be easy.
