*Assault to Saddlebag Pawnshop *

*Haven usually so calm and peaceful life has been broken today, the morning greeted the town with a grim visage, as the body of a female human woman was found beheaded and in a pike in the middle of the road just in front of the Saddle bag pawnshop, the head was set on the floor just at the feet of where the body was impaled on a pike, the perpetrators of this awful crime remain in mystery as no guard seem to have seen this events, apparently the deed was hidden somehow, and the guard is investigation on how and why's this was posible.


The woman who died was a tavern girl from the locality that went by the name crystal, its too strange on the circumstances of her death since her body was wering a broken full plate armor made of cheap materials, the helmet near the pike, the woman in question had long red hair, and it seems to be hard to understand on the why's the perpetrators decided to do this modus operandi.


On the pawnshop wall painted with Blood there was a drawing that was depeciting like a map. with the words written over the main entrace face as well with Blood .


"We Came here tracking the dot "



*There is also a trail of blood that is left towards the door that is neighbour to the store, the very 180 of the same street *


*The good people of Haven looks indignantly to the events and wonders why the strange things are happening and if this had to do with the strange dissaparition of people that has been happening in the past*

*Dot emerges from Haven Mines. Gnoll blood still fresh and dripping from her blade. She heads over towards the Saddlebag to unload materials she mined... seeing a crowd gathered in front of the shop she walks up slowly behind the mob*

*she nudges someone near the back of the mob, Dot cant yet see what everyone has gathered around*

Hey... what's goin' on?

*the man replies but doesnt turn to see who he is talking to... he is still trying to get a glimpse of the events himself*

Someone was killed, beheaded.... the croud says she is a local waitress but she's been dressed in some costume or something of armor. *he peers around the people in front of him*

*Dot scowls a bit and grumbles* Great... all these people blockin' the shop now.

*Dot moves around the crowd surrounding the body, she gets glimpses of the victim as she moves past... she notices the made up plate armor and helmet design and stops in her tracks.

What the....!? *she starts to muscle her way thru the croud (STR modafier 9 so she has little trouble moving people). She makes it trhu the mob to see officer Kit and other guards looking over the dead body.... she then sees all the blood and the writing on the side of the Saddlebag*

Son of a Lich! *she barks out loudly* What's all this about!

*the croud starts to notice the red hair of Dot and her plate armor... and the similarities to how the vicitm was dressed up*

*Dot stands with her arms folded as she waits to hear what Kit and the other guards have to say*

*Upon looking to Dot the Sgt in charge of the guard stops on his tracks all of sudden finally realizing the similarities *

*he looks at Dot again noticing the similaties more deeply now *

*she glares at the Sgt. and replies in a emotionless tone*


I'm Dot & I work here *makes a head nod towards The Saddlebag*


*a unified gasp is heard in the surrounding crowd followed by several hushed whispers. Dot ignores them standing firm, her arms still folded*


When ya gonna clean this mess up? *she asks while glaring at the Sgt.* Aint no good for business ya know. *she thumbs towards the Saddlebag shop*

*The Sgt. looks at her once the statement has been done and frowns a bit, he gestures her to follow as the guards are already to get the crowd to disperse*



The question stands the same miss. .. As you can see this seems too casual don't you think? Any thoughts?


And you know who lives on that place? *gesturing towards the other house *


**The man start to move towards the entrance of the pawnshop gesturing her to come over with the intent to search any more clues on the inside*


*There are a couple of guards already moving towards the other house *

Seems kinda dumb ta make a big public scene & all. Either they're idots... or they aint afraid a bein caught. Beats me who dun it.... I prolly got several people who wanna see me dead.


*Dot ponders some threats she's received in her years of doing bounty and blade work trying to pinpoint any "serious threats" she has some ideas in her head but gives no sign that she has any intent of sharing that info with the Sgt.*


Yeah that's the blue mans.... er.. Argos's place. *she looks sligtly concerned seeing the blood trail leading to their door*

*The guards are already checking the entrance to see any thing that may give them any hint on that , one of them is seen Knocking the door*


*The Sargent looks back at her as he reaches to the door of the store*


Yes, public display too obvious, It either betrays stupidity or boldness, and they seem to have the whole intent to leave a message here, Does this not ring a bell at all ? *a guard opens the door of the shop for them to enter*



And do you know this man? your neighbor? Any differences with him? Some .. bad .. business in the past?


*The man keeps walking towards the shop as the door finally opens in front of them being pulled by a guard *

*Rory hears the commotion of the crowd upstairs in her house, curious Rory takes a peek out from one of the upstairs windows. She frowns taking in the whole scene, not liking what she can see or the little bit she can hear Rory makes her way downstairs when the knock comes to her front door. She tells their housekeeper Ginger that she's going out the back and for her to answer the door. Once out the back, Rory makes it around to the back of Dots house, to the side of her house till she see what she hoped to find, Dot before she enters her store.*


Dot what in the hells is happening?

Well milady, *To Rory* Any idea of why someone might have set your house full of blood at the moment? does you have any common enemy? Someone who fought you for the house or the neighborhood?



This is too open to be a causality, and i pray that the disappearances that happened some months ago has not come to this level of boldness .

Who knows Sargent, we never figured someone to be that silly to try and make either one of us that angry. Now that we know different, we know to many of them to come up with a name. But once we do.. *lets the heavy words settle in the wind*

*The Sargent returns the look at both of them * I would recommend you to not take this personal, remember that an innocent girl got killed here for this, indeed we need to make sure that the perpetrator pays for this ... using the proper channels of course.


*The store seems undisturbed on the inside, and aside the blood on the face, there aren't any visible damages upon the house*


Now, lots of enemies you say? Care to explain on that?

*a few minutes before Dot makes the shout, Rory sneaks out the back of the house and positions herself so she scan the area see who is paying attention or not, who looks out of place or new to the area. Rory is outside for a good while in the shadows of the house, at times looking around the area for clues too.*

*Vrebel rides up on horseback the bag filled with purple mushrooms hanging from his saddle and and woahs his horse to a stop when he sees Dot standing gaurd outside shouting to the top of her lungs. He removes his helm and grins obviously relieved*


The stories of your demise are greatly exageratted


*He dismounts walking the blood trail trying to figure everything out*

*Dot waves seeing Vrebel*


Aww now who gone and said I was dead eh?


*Dot talks to Vrebel a while basically filling him in on what has transpired.*


(which essentially would be everything in this thread, nothing much has happened in game on this, yet)

*The time pass, the citizens of Haven moves away scared after the shout ( probably not wanting to be near when a fight if any starts ).


*The time passes without nothing to happen yet, Rory finds obvious that the crowd is looking at the events, some people interested in the promise of a fight and some near guards ( that now are putting some close vigilance on the pawnshop without being that near ) are vigilant too.


*for a small moment a girl of about 6 years is seem walking out the front door of the 180 house, apparently curious about the shout that Dot did, Lil Ell was too curious for her own good , she had not advanced two metters away of the house when Keira alongside Ginger picks her and drags her back to the hoiuse *


*The time pass as Vrebel arrives and start to chat with Dot, no more events seems to happen at the time*

*After Dot fills in Vrebel and things seem to be settling down his eyes wander over to the woman's severed corpse being removed from the pike*


It appears were going to have to accelerate yer trainin'. Let me know if anything developes with this.


*With that he offers Dot a mischeivious smile while mounting his horse. A not so gentle nudge in the horses side and he leaves Haven for Ft. Last.*
