    Ok, I will need a Bluff or Intimidate (or both, I guess) from whomever wants to make the rolls. I will allow one person to Aid Another on each roll (just to keep it from being ridiculous).

    You're in the desert around 11 at night when this is taking place.

    Sorry about the confusion about the truck. I should have been more specific.

    I would suggest Col. Corbett as the primary, since he is the Inquisitor. Looks like Elliot has a pretty good Intimidate skill if he wants to assist. Otherwise Olivia or CRIII can also help out.

    Whatever works. Thought the truck was covered too.

    The desert works fine...

    My intimidate is +6, Looks like Ellit has it by 1 with a +7.

    If someone "aids" him (olivia or JT), I will "discern lies" as he answers.

    good idea, except that we need JT to translate. Elliot will handle the intimidating.

    Can you describe JT's dwarven trenchax? Is it appropriate for digging a grave?

    When the truck comes to a stop, Elliot gets out. He retrieves his rifle fron the car and slings it.

    He goes to the back of the truck, and lowers the gate. He says gruffly to CR3..

    "Keep a lookout. I'll handle this."

    He reaches into the back of the truck and grabs the man by his boots, roughly dragging him out to fall, still bound, to the hard desert ground. He glares at the man as he slowly draws his sawbacked bayonet from it's scabbard, never taking his gaze from the man's eyes. It's fifteen inch blade gleams wickedly in the moonlight.

    He reaches down and quickly slashes the binding at the prisoner's ankles, not being particularly careful about whether or not he cuts him.

    He replaces his bayonet into it's scabbard and grabs the man by his shirt collar, hauling him to his feet. He shoves him roughly, away from the truck towards the open desert.

    He looks around quickly in an exaggerated fashion, and draws his pistol. He makes a show of chambering a round. He points it at the man, and jerks the barrel in the direction of the desert, away from the truck.

    "WALK!" He barks at the man..

    To his friend JT..

    "Gimme that ax, partner."

    After the mans back is turned, he motions for JT and the Colonel to follow them.

    Intimidate: 1d20+7 (18+7)=25

    Meh. Not bad to start.

    Elliot is gonna march him a couple dozen paces out into the desert and make him start digging. Hoping that trenchax is similar to a standard trenching tool, so Elliot can toss it at his feet to use. Then, he'll begin the interrogation.

    Hoping JT and the Colonel follow along to help.

    Being quite capable at interrogation himself, CR3 merely observes for now, holding himself in reserve in case the Colonel invites him to the party. This rough lot is better suited for the intimmidator's role, he muses.
    CR3 stands atop the truck to keep watch and will whistle if he spies a threat.

    Matt, I just double checked Corbett cuz +6 to Intimidate didn't sound right- he's actually+8. (3 ranks, stern gaze+3, class ability bonus +3)

    After Elliot roughs him up a bit Corbett should probably take over- I might not roll lucky again.

    And I forgot CRIII can also speak one of the local dialects (was it turkish) since he was eavesdropping on Norris' servants..

    So after man handling the prisoner out to the desert and getting him a good start on his grave, Elliot will let Corbett step in and 'interrupt the execution' maybe.

    His 8 CHA gives him a -2!
    Intimidate (Cha) +2 Rank, +3 Class bonus, +3 stern gaze, -2 CHA = +6

    So Elliot still has the edge by 1, with a +7.

    Your drive a few miles outside of the city late at night... the night is cool and quite dark. The pyramids dominate the skyline to the east





    The prisoner is very frightened of all of you.. especially once JT translates the orders. He does as he is told and digs but then falls to his knees asking for mercy. (in Arabic) "please, I and my brethren were hired to steal the rugs... I will do no more harm. Please be merciful!"

    CR III does not see anything out the ordinary with his Perception check

    Elliot regards the man with a cool stare after listening to JT's translation. He crosses his arms, his pistol still in his right hand. He taps it against his shoulder,  apparently lost in thought for a moment as he stares down the prisoner.

    After a pause, holsters his pistol. He pulls out his canteen off of his belt and takes a long pull. He offers the canteen to the prisoner, on his knees in his own grave. He asks the man slowly..

    "Who hired you? Do you know who you were stealing from?"

    Elliot is counting on Corbett to pipe up if he detects any falsehoods..

    GM - I am using "discern lies" the entire time. It simply tells me whether an answer is true, or a lie.

    "we were stealing from that pig Fadlala.. he's a collaborator with the English. I didn't meet the man that hired us. Our leader, Khalid... the one that that witch threw off the building was the one that gave us the mission. Please sir, spare my life"

    Colonel, you do not discern any falsehoods. Though, he might be holding back.

    Elliot considers for a moment..

    "Hmmmmm... Perhaps I will spare you after all.. if you can offer me the answers I seek. Your life is a fine price for some simple information, is it not? Tell me more of your organization. How many are you? How far does the Forty Thieves' influence extend? Outside Cairo?"

    "For a gang of thieves, they sure are a murderous lot. Remember, they opened up on us and their leader inflicted magic missles on me, without cause. Now if that tongue of his keeps wagging lies, I'll rip it out myself and boil it in soup. Does he like soup? Ask him that," Olivia says with a frightful gaze.

    sorry that I am late to join the party, we had a family baptism today for my nephew. it was a really cool ceremony performed by the minister that married Jamie and I in a shallow part of Solomon Creek, the colors are beautiful right now. If you have never met our minister, he rides a harley or an indian, works part time as a bartender, has a black belt and preaches with a native american\christian combo philosophy.

    anyways, back to the desert..... JT's trenchaxe is a reskinned dwarven waraxe, so probably not suitable for digging, not to mention that it is magically enchanted from fighting the undead in the Somme. JT doesn't understand it, but somehow, after that battle, it just felt different in his hands, lighter, keener... more deadly. He does not let anyone else use it.

    However, JT has a whole arsenal of trench tools, MW even and our prisoner is welcome to a MW spade. JT will translate to the best of his abilities, keeping watch across the dune sea

    sounds,m fine. Elliot will make the prisoner use a standard MWK trenching spade.

    Also congrats on the baptism!

    The thief looks rather scared to tell you the info... "we are very strong in Cairo and Alexandria... our leader is.."  At that moment, a shot rings out, as clear as a hand clap from several hundred yards away and the thief slumps over with a shot through his head.

    "YOU HAVE BEEN ENOUGH OF A NUISANCE TO THE CIRCLE... NOW YOU MUST DIE... ARISE MY CHILDREN!"  a disembodied voice thunders, breaking the silence of the evening.  

    Before you can discern where the shot truly came from... massive shapes start to emerge from the sand. It is dim lighting for those of you w/o darkvision right now (though there is moonlight and, I assume, the truck might have been left on with it's headlights running)

    2 Huge Scorpions have unearthed themselves... Initiative please.  (I will allow Perception checks on the off chance you can figure out where the shot and voice came from)
