The Verge Street Op

Tessiria is about to march against House Daceas, Gaius has a short window in which he can act against her and take her territory.

The PCs are trying to cross the City, and have to pass through Verge Street — one of them is injured, and they have to find a way to get their compatriot back, either choosing a side or (with difficulty) avoiding the conflict.

Erillia, Pi, or Rasine need to get injured

  • fall off a roof
  • get hit by stray arrows
  • ?

Aspects to compel:
Syler Furbane: “Syler to the Rescue!” and “Defusing the Situation,” and possibly “My One and Only: Erillia”
Rasine: “Overprepared in Fear of Failure,” “Gaius Values My Opinion,” and possibly “Piah’s Former Lover”
Piah: “Stumble Across,” “It’s Not Easy Being Good,” and possibly “Rasine’s in My Pi”
Mo Proudhoe: “Defender of the Downtrodden”
Erillia: “I Will Not Be a Pawn”
Gatcha: “The Tale of the Common Man”
