Criminal Adventures with 'The Bretmer'

Good evening ESO-RP~ In an effort to get some more RP for myself and, at the same time, create some for the community, I will soonTM (in the next week) start DMing small criminal events (heists or similar things) organized by my character, The Bretmer.

Why
The purpose of this is to help create contacts and offer RP opportunities for criminal characters who may be finding themselves unaffiliated (without a guild), or even for guilded characters just looking for a little more work on the side.

How
In the near future, when Kayla has a job and needs helping partners, I will let it be known on this website and the discord OOCly. ICly, Kayla will spread the word through some unspecified underground way, giving anyone interested a way of knowing where and when to find her, probably seated in a dark corner of a tavern, drinking and gambling.
The regions most likely to be targets are High Rock (Glenumbra, Stormhaven, Bangkorai & Rivenspire), Skyrim (The Rift & Eastmarch) and The Gold Coast, though other places are not excluded, provided I have access to the zones.

I have an empty discord server that I will leave open for anyone to join or leave at their leisure, though it will be required to join it at least for the duration of an event, should you choose to participate.

https://discord.gg/wMBVQ3C

Now you're probably wondering what kind of DMing system I ought to use for this. To put it simply, I will personally handle all rolls happening during events to ensure a steady speed, and inform the players of the result of their actions.
Upon joining the discord to participate in a heist, a character will be granted some skill points to distribute as they wish in a short list of skills. The point is not to make people fail, but rather to get away from the dreaded random d20 and give some value to character's IC skills.

What else?
Aside from events, other types of contact for RP are more than welcome~

Kayla would currently be interested in meeting some shady folks for business:

  • A Moneylender Recent ventures have left Kayla with little to no gold, and she could use the funds to start her enterprise. An opportunity for mafia and other shady characters looking for an investment to profit on interest.
  • Smugglers / Fences It is a lucky thief who stumbles directly unto currency. Most stolen goods are expected to be of no value unless they can be sold legitimately. An opportunity for fences and smugglers looking for purveyors of goods.
  • Information Brokers Kayla would be willing to pay some gold to people having reliable information on potential or future marks.

Other hooks

  • Want something stolen? You want a certain item stolen from a certain person? Kayla might be able to help.
  • Looking for partners? You have a job to do but can't handle it alone? Kayla might be interested.

People with contacts in the underworld might have heard that The Bretmer will be present tonight, December 8, at 8pm eastern time, at:

[NA - ALL] The Anvil Horse Auction and Archery Contest hosted by House Varro in Anvil.

Word says she will be recruiting for her first heist in the region, and could also be looking for contacts and business partners (see first post).

In order to get her attention and let her know you are looking for her, the following words must be spoken:

"Bad day for a celebration."
[…]
"Weather is gonna turn, I tell you."

Adventure #1: Gold hijacking (Gold Coast)

Kayla managed to get the interest of one partner in Anvil, the argonian mercenary Braves-The-Storms played by Biggest-Kitteh .

After agreeing on a plan to rob bank gold on a carriage, the pair successfully stole documents from the Gold Coast Trading Company: information on the carriage transporting the gold, and everything needed to intercept it.

However, on the night of the hijacking, explosive contraptions made by Braves-The-Storms to stop the carriage on the road proved to not work at all, and the 2 bandits were found at a loss and unprepared against a clearly underestimated target.

They were separated and each had to go their own way as the Company's guards looked for them.
They will have no reason to celebrate after that.

LOOT :
  • Nothing

Adventure #2: Grave Robbing (Gold Coast)

Kayla enlisted the help of her friend Nehemia, played by Saiyu and partnered up with 'Rusty' Abe, a criminal that she had met a while ago, played by Brobot .

The idea was to use the cover of night to dig up graves in the Anvil graveyard to steal valuables that were buried within. To increase their chances of finding more valuable items, it was decided that they would steal burial records from the temple, in hopes of finding information about the deceased's fortunes so that they could dig up the graves of the richest people.

With great acting, Abe and Kayla managed to create a diversion inside the temple, giving enough time for Nehemia to sneak into the offices below. Fearing she would not have enough time to search the many documents, she chose to grab as many as she could and hope to be lucky.

That would later prove a mistake as none of the stolen documents would be of any help. And so the three robbers started digging graves more or less randomly, finding mostly empty graves and only a few valuables before a guard discovered their misdeeds and they had to escape.

They reunited in a dark alley and split the valuables after a short argument over shares.

LOOT :
  • An engraved gold necklace with family portraits inside and a gold chain.
  • A gold wedding ring with a small sapphire-like stone.

Total profit: 220 gold.

Adventure #3: Highway Robbery (Eastmarch)

After taking a ship to Skyrim, Kayla teamed up some old friends in Brobot 's Rusty Abe and GalviusT 's Séverin, smuggler extraordinaire, and also enlisted the help of a local, Redd the Salt God 's Redd.

This time, the plan was to steal two wagons of goods from the Luxen Trading Company while they travelled from Windhelm.

Luckily for them, a storm hit the region and made it much easier for the group to move around unnoticed. Although the bosmer was clearly frustrated by Skyrim's weather, Kayla was able to find a muddy spot where a tree had fallen on the road, perfect for an ambush. The group waited there for the wagons under heavy and cold rain for a while, with much arguing that almost devolved into a fight, and voiced doubts that wagons would even come by; Kayla reassured them that she knew for sure that they would, and they sure did.

As expected, the wagons quickly got stuck in the mud when they had to stop for the broken tree. With the intent of dividing and distracting the guards, Séverin came up to them and convinced them that he was in need of their help, only to ambush the man that offered his assistance, with Abe's help. During this, Kayla and Redd approached the wagons and quickly inspected the contents, before they decided to take out the remaining guards, Kayla with her bow and Redd with poison darts.

After a bit of graceless brawl with many slipping in the mud, the guards eventually surrendered when they realized they were outmatched by the brigands. However, the group showed mercy and let them all live, stealing the wagons and their contents as they left the scene, again with much loud arguing.

The contents were moved into a secret hideout belonging to Redd, where they were kept for a few days before being moved to Severin's ship to be smuggled and eventually fenced.

LOOT :
  • Roughly 262 pounds of animal hides and furs, between the two wagons.

Total worth: 2096 gold
Fencing / Smuggling fee: -312 gold
Final profit: 1784 gold (446 gold each)

Boop! Back from my trip to the big apple~ *w*

Next Criminal Adventure is Thursday, March 28th @9pm EST.

We'll have two people redshirting for us, and we'll be in Ivarstead, The Rift, Skyrim doing some good ol fashioned pickpocketing. Spread out and make some pulls. However, Redd needs one target in particular relieved of a missive she's carrying, regarding information on Luxen Trading Company. I'll be running this job in particular using very simple dice system.

See the first post for joining the discord to join in on the criminal funsies @w@

Adventure #4: Pick Pocketing (Ivarstead, The Rift)

Some new faces showed up at the call of the bretmer. The trio set to steal whatever they could get from Ivarstead. Redd asked the group to target a visiting noblewoman by name of Kitty Gray-Mane, a young daughter of Clan Gray-Mane.

Draumer set to using her charisma to entice all of the men in the village to follow her. Redd plucked their pockets while she distracted them with her charm. In the meantime, Sorcano set out to locate Kitty Gray-Mane, and from there Draumer turned her mob of followers into an angry mob that she sicced after Kitty. Sorcano used his illusion magic to make himself and Redd appear like guards and frantically lead Kitty to escape the angry mob chasing after them. Redd made the pull for the note on her person then, and she escaped cleanly after that.

The group left with meager loot overall, but they did get the note from the noblewoman...with information regarding Luxen Trading Company.

Special thank you to GalviusT for red-shirting our Kitty Gray-Mane!
