The City of Lives
The Manor Op
Riduccio should report his failure to Tessiria, but he needs to steel and relax himself first, so he heads to a seedy part of Belltown, to a filthy whorehouse/tavern called the Cup-and-Ball. A reasonable bribe (Resources Good (3)) will let a PC pretend to be a prostitute, record Riduccio, or similar. She is unlikely to be deceived or talked into it (both Legendary (+8)).
Compel the following aspects:
Rasine: “Don’t Look At Me!” (whorehouse) and ?
Piah: “What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You” (“Remember that girl who embarrassed me by sleeping with a filthy Leovite servant? You wouldn’t want to be where she is…”)
Mo Proudhoe: “Rural Revolutionary” (fail to back off) and “Redistributor of Life” (does he heal or kill injured guards?
Erillia: “How Can I Control the World If I Can’t Even Control My Own Head?” (fake guard only she sees)
Gatcha: “Accepted at All Tables, Welcome at None” (Tessiria’s men will have nothing to do with a bizarre Outlander)
Tessiria’s Guards patrol the halls in 4 groups of 2, with Alertness +4
The conversation will point them towards
- The Rich Rural Op (Elect Gaius tier 1)
- The Contest of Champions Op (Destroy Mountain Outpost tier 1)
- The Verge Street Op (Expand Trevelanius’s Influence tier 1)
