Isn't there a law in Eubric about disturbing the peace?

Being a Ranger, all of William's possessions were special. He pushed a button and a dart flew out the end of his pipe, hitting Glorfindel and made him vomit on the ground.

The party comes to the used bookstore Shrooft's Scripts and Tomes. Entering the shop, they are greeted by the Metasimian owner Shrooft.

"Good day to you gentlemen, what can I do for you?"

How will the Party answer?

The metasimian blinks at the party. "Know Byblos? What metasimian worth his bunch of bananas doesn't know that great scholar?" The book seller smiles, "I'm assuming you must be from Heroica Hall. Now what's this business about the Guild of Invision? I'm afraid I don't do much business with them, but if you are looking for a book, I can assure you I have at least half a dozen copies of it on hand, everything from classics to those books which were banned during the early founding of Eubric. I have from signed first additions steeped in their author's own blood, worn paperbacks perfect readers on the go, scripts so tiny that only fairies can read them, and tomes so big each gilded letter is as big as my head. I have books that cost a dime to a dozen, and books that even that only a Hinckwell could buy. So how can I best serve you?"

"No I'm afraid I haven't had a lad by that name in here lately, I had someone fitting his description about a week ago, but he was only a short potbellied orc looking for a cookbook for his wife. Bah, the nerve of that fellow, pawing at my precious stock with his greasy sausage fingers, it makes my blood boil."

The metasimian turns to a small filing cabinet and looks through it, "Brickal, Brickeling, Ah Ha! Brickough! Here we are." The metasimian presents a small card, "My, my, my. Signor Brickough's "Maladies of the Brick" a very rare book indeed, you fellows must have some very strange tastes. That book was banned during the onset of the "Gray Plague" many years back, some even say that that fellow Brickough may have even had something to do with the initial outbreak. But those were probably just rumors spread around by his competitors. You'll find the text in my backroom, black hard cover, leather bound" the metasimian nods his head toward the curtain, indicating the direction of his storeroom. "I keep most of my older and more valuable stock and such, in there. It's a small cave that makes for a natural store room, dry, warm, free from the eyes of the Eubricean censorship authorities. It used to serve as an entrance to the catacombs running underneath the city, but I had it boarded up years ago, it was getting just too damp to store my precious books."

The metasimian leads the Party behind the curtain to the store room.

Posted Image


Boxes, barrels, shelves, and chests filled with books, scrolls, and all manner of texts litter the entire room.

"Well, I'm sorry it's a mess boys, I've been meaning to clean it, but you know how it goes running a shop all by yourself. I'd help you look for the book, but I ain't got the slightest idea where it's hiding. All I know is the catalog says we've got one copy and it's stored somewhere back here. Let me know if you find it and I'll ring you up at the front."

With that, the shop owner leaves the Party in the flickering candlelight.

Party, please descriptively state the exact locations you'd like to check in bold, one at a time.

Atramor gawped at the mess. He'd seen the grittiest, scurviest pirates' storerooms more organized than this. McCafferey flapped over to the top of the bookshelf. Her owner merely sighed, and proceeded to examine the blue and white books.

Atramor wades through the scraps of paper and parchment that litter the floor like freshly fallen snow. While his inspection of the bookshelves fails to yield the desired item, he does discover a hidden stash of 1 Potion and 10 Gold.

William's attempt to open the chest appears futile as it appears to be locked.

Party Leader, how will the spoils be divided?

"I think it's William's turn for something, so I'll give him the potion and 2 gold, along with everybody else."

Atramor uses his badass Rogue lockpicking skills on the chest.

Atramor attempts to pick the lock, however his lockpicking tools find no mechanism to unlock within the keyhole.

QM Note: Jedi Master Brick, which barrel? They are distinctly marked.

Glorfindel's search of the gold studded crate yields a Grand Potion.

Meanwhile, Atramor investigates the silver studded crate but finds that it appears to be nailed shut. Elgar however looks through the silver studded barrel and finds another 10 Gold and 1 key.

After dividing the loot, Atramor walks over to the chest and inserts the key. The chest accordingly eats the key, much to the rogue's surprise. A rustling is heard among the sheaves of paper as the silver studded crate and the overturned tub begin to advance on the party revealing gaping mouths filled with teeth. A bat swoops down out of nowhere and is joined by a grey rat. The chest opens wide it's gaping jaws and prepares to attack the party.
