    Default [Avatar d20] The Fall of Chin the Great - Group 1 IC

    The Fall of Chin the Great – Group 1

    The last few years have been full of upheaval, conflict, and uncertainty. The armies of Chin the Great washed over the Earth Kingdom, leaving only Ba Sing Se, safe behind its impenetrable wall, unconquered. Now though, the tide of Chin’s conquest has crashed against the rock of Avatar Kyoshi and has begun to recede, leaving shattered villages, purpose-less military units, and disrupted lives in its wake.

    Rumors are flying throughout the kingdom. Some say that Kyoshi separated a piece of the country from the mainland in order to stop the conqueror. Some speak of the inability of the Earth King to stop Chin and quietly foment rebellion. Some whisper quietly of the order that would have come with Chin’s complete conquest. More loudly, people complain of banditry, poverty, and the destruction left by the various armies.

    It is in this time of uncertainty that you find yourself in the village of Yu Shya, a local trading center approximately 3-day’s ride southeast of Ba Sing Se. You are standing at the edge of the town square, where it appears several things are happening. At the well in the center of the square, a slender man wearing the ragged clothes and the pointed hat of a peasant is speaking excitedly of betterment for peasants and general prosperity for the people of the Earth Kingdom when the new order comes. He is surrounded by people, who become increasingly agitated with every sentence. On the left-most fringe of the square, a well-dressed nobleman is surrounded by a rough crowd of characters, with whom he seems to be engaged in a heated discussion, though if you listen carefully, you can hear the clink of coins at intervals. The nobleman continuously looks askance at the group in the center of the square. Finally, the walls of shops surround the square are plastered with wanted posters for various bandits and criminals, all advertising a reward if the pictured individual is captured and turned in to the authorities.

    You have arrived in the village only this evening, making your way back to Ba Sing Se after your time in Chin’s army. Set adrift, you can’t think of a better place to go about finding a purpose than the largest city in the kingdom.

    You have been in town for a few days. Your performances are able to draw modest crowds, but the money you make is only just enough to keep you fed and housed.

    Rumors of bandit activity in the area surrounding Yu Shya have brought you to the village with the hope of assisting in brokering a peace between the townsfolk, the military, and the bandit forces. As a local trading center, Yu Shya is a good place to keep your ears to the ground for news of developments in the larger Earth Kingdom. At least, it’s better than the small village far to the southeast in which you were stationed when Chin was killed.

    You've had word of escalating bandit activity in the area around Yu Shya, as well as increased levels of effectiveness and discipline during the raids. Perhaps some of the deserters from Chin's army have joined on and are contributing their talents and training to the cause.

    Liu Shen

    Liu Shen walks into town with a proud gait, his rich green robes billowing around his densely muscled frame. A massive greatsword rests in a hanger on his back while his thick beard meets him midchest. His left arm does not go through the sleeve of his robe, instead it rests inside of is as his hand protrudes from it's open and belted front as if in a sling. He is barefooted, a common sight here in the Earth Kingdom, and studded leather armor of fine and sturdy craft is visible beneath his robe. A ronin warrior, his confidence is unquestionable.

    He pauses to examine the wanted posters as he strokes his beard absentmindedly, his brow furrowed. He glances at both the nobleman and the ruffians who surround him and the preaching peasant. Unwilling to interrupt the potentially illicit deal the noble appears to be doing, Liu approaches the peasant.

    Sazun Inako is smilling. She smiles because the town is so alive, so much more than ever before. She dusts her studded leather armor and thick gauntlets, cleaning her colorful monk clothes before hastily joining the crowd. Next to the noble and his ''colleagues'', she waves her night-black, braided hair and innocently asks:

    ''Could one of you gentlemens tell me what could a young women find interesting to spend a few of her wealth on?''

    Liu Shen

    The speaker looks at you from underneath his hat with a slight glare of annoyance at the interruption. Nevertheless, he responds.

    No, but a new lord is about to arise! The Earth King sat in his city and did nothing while the armies of Chin the Tyrant washed over our villages and watered our fields in the blood of our families and friends! It is time that the people of the Earth Kingdom have a government that cares about them, and looks after their needs! We shall rule, not an Earth King sequestered in his palace!

    Apparently, the speaker is using your interruption to arouse his listeners further.

    Who shall rule? We shall!

    Sazun Inako

    As you approach, the nobleman looks at your nervously (never meeting your eyes) and whisks a small wooden box off the table around which the group has gathered with an almost-imperceptible *clink*.

    The other men gathered around, already interested in the woman who has just walked up, look with increasing interest at the mention of "wealth." One of them shrugs and says,

    Not much around here worth buying. Althought...lady like you shouldn't be wandering around by herself. If you'd like, maybe I could take some coin off your hands in return for a sturdy sword by your side. Whadda ya say?

    These last few sentences are said with a noticeable lear, which provokes variations of laughter, derision, and moral outrage from the surrounding men.

    Arashi stares at the group of noblemen and the woman who joined them. He had wandered in this city alone, and he had been searching for a purpose since then. He simply couldn't function without a goal in his life.

    Carefully, he edged towards the group, listening in on their conversation, and staring at them with his wide, wide eyes.

    Liu Shen

    "Bah! You speak foolishness! You speak like Chin himself! The Tyrant wanted to depose the Earth King just the same as you." Liu Shen walks to stand next to the peasant speaker, continuing to speak in a booming, deep voice.

    "Now I ask you, if you want the Earth King to fall, where are your loyalties? The Earth King is our liege, our lord, our nation. Instead of trying to overthrow our King, instead we should seek to aid him, aid in the reunification our lands, of our people. You have a gift of words, my friend. Use them for the unification of people, the betterment of our nation, and the strengthening of our Kingdom and our King." He then pats the man on the shoulder and smiles at him. "It is the wish of our people to be whole and strong, and rebellion is not the way." Diplomacy check to influence the peasant to see my point of view. (1d20 8=19)

    Rikuu enter in the city, he likes a old traveler with his swords on back and his Raven-Eagle on the shoulder, the people don't pay attention at him. He walks to the merchant to buy some provisions. After he looks the wanted posters and he heard two people argue about the Earth King on the central square and that scene call his attention. He stops to reading the posters and pay attention on the scene.

    Aaron Lee

    With a distant look in his eye, the young man leisurely glance over the wanted posters briefly getting the gist of each one. What he wouldn't give to find one of these men and get some REAL money. Of course, all of them were too smart to show their ugly mugs around town. But that was life.

    Idly, his hands worked at tuning his guitar preparing for a new day of entertainment. The money coming in was alright, but it was far less than he had expected. It just seemed like everyone had their purse-strings tied tight these days, and Aaron really couldn't blame them.

    After a brief sigh, he tussled his hair and turned to look around at the crowded square. There were several groups prodding around. One was quite familiar, and were brandishing their weapons and false smiles as per usual, and the other was once more lodged in a political debate that Aaron simply had no interest in.

    It was a pretty average day. People were arguing, goods were being traded, and the clinking of coins filled the air. Hopefully, those coins would be flying his way soon. Placing his guitar case on the ground in front of him, Aaron let his fingers slide across the strings in a familiar way as he fell into a rythm.

    Dressed in his simple traveling cloths, Aaron plucked the strings and began to sing. It was a silly little Water Tribe ditty that he remembered from his youth. They'd always sing it during the nights when there was a full moon.

    Zip Dan Dee!
    Water flies, but flies don't water
    When I move this way!

    Long ago in the ice and snow
    Where lights glow sky,
    A boy and his otter danced together
    Under a moon-lit night.

    The otter spun a crazzy jig,
    While the boy rushed to follow.
    His claws clacked and clicked across the ice,
    While the boy pitter-pattered along.

    Zip Dan Dee!
    Water flies, but flies don't water,
    When I move this way!

    The moon yawned wide and turned in her sleep
    As the two made such a racket.
    Until she leened way down to them
    And asked them what was the matter.

    She said 'Will you be good and quiet'
    'If I teach you to dance with the sea?'
    The two turned red and nodded silent
    And listened to what she said.

    Zip Dan Dee!
    Water flies, but flies don't water,
    When I move this way!

    'Dance this way and move like this.'
    Said the moon as she spun 'round!
    The water shook and the water splashed
    And rose without a sound.

    All night they dance, all night they jigged.
    Until the two had it down pat.
    And with a yawn the Moon returned
    To sleep and rest again.

    Zip Dan Dee!
    Water flies, but flies don't water,
    When I move this way!

    True to their promise, the next night those two
    Danced with the silent water,
    But tired from a full night of dancing,
    The Moon did not show up to play!

    Zip Dan Dee!
    Water flies, but flies don't water,
    When I move this waaaaay!
    Half-elves are like slinkies.
    They're not really good for anything,
    but you can't help laughing when they fall down the stairs.

    Outraged by the disrespectful demeanor of her antagonists, Sazun walks away with a pout. She is angry, but the air filled with jolly music appeases her immediatly. Happy again, she goes near the singer, free some coins on the dirt in front of him, and ask in a giggle:

    You! Help me! I want to know what those weird guys are talking about, but they won't let me know. If you bring me the information I want, I'll give you more money.

    You are able to edge close enough to hear snatches of their conversation.

    ...worried about these peasants. Who know's what's going to happen if they get all riled up. Look at that!

    And you want us to do...

    ...just need some more men around my home. Will you help?

    Perhaps, but my "help" don't come cheap...

    Mine neither. What'd you have in mind to give for our "help?"


    Liu Shen

    The speaker gives you a strange look that says "how on earth could you believe something like that!?" He opens his mouth to speak again, addressing the crowd more than you.

    Chin wanted to overthrow the Earth King for his own personal glory. I am speaking of the betterment of my fellow peasants! My loyalties are to the people of the Earth Kingdom. It is the people of this land who are great, not its corrupt and uncaring monarch, and it isn't the Earth King who gives us our proud identity. We must rise up and eliminate the bureaucracy that allows its people to die by the sword.

    He still commands the attention of the crowd, but you notice that the cheers of support that punctuate his speech are becoming slightly less enthusiastic, and a few people nearby are speaking amongst themselves instead of listening in rapt attention.

    Rikku

    There appears to be a standing offer of one gold piece for every member of the "Earth Kingdom Treasurers" brought in alive. Apparently, members are identified by armbands bearing the national emblem of the Earth Kingdom in gold, in mockery of Earth Kingdom authority and making a joke about the shape of Earth Kingdom money. For every armband you bring in without an accompanying live bandit, there is a reward of 5 silver pieces.

    In addition to these general rewards, there is the 100 gp reward for the capture of Jin Hua, the leader of the Earth Kingdom Treasurers, a tall thick man with an impressive white beard and a bald pate. There is also a standing 5 gp reward for any captured former members of Chin's army.

    Aaron Lee

    Your song catches the eyes of quite a few passersby, some of whom stop and listen and clap politely when you finish. Looking down into your case, you see that passersby have given you 3 copper pieces, not a bad return for a single song in times like these.

    Liu Shen

    "Then you are committed to this rebellion then? It takes nothing to talk of destroying what we have, and it takes little more to want to bring it down. It takes true strength to mold what exists into the ideal in our minds. Saying the Earth King must be overthrown are bold words, saying that the Earth King is corrupt and uncaring are as well. But a King's strength lies in the strength of his people. If the people are weak and divided, standing against him, then of course the throne will be weak. If you truly love your Earth Kingdom, why would you make it weaker by speaking this way? I say work to make it better, I say speak to others to sway them to work for it to be better. Speaking of rebellion and war is the wrong way to go. Too much war has occurred in recent years, too much death. Now is a time of peace, a time of healing and restoration. Be a force for peace, do not try to make the land and her people suffer more for your short-sightedness." Shaking his head sadly at the peasant speaker, Liu Shen turns and moves away to listen to the singer as the song ends.

    His eyes follow the pouting girl to the singer as he listens to her words to the singer. Liu then glances towards the wealthy man and the ruffians who surround him, his eyes narrowing slightly as he examines them. Muttering to himself, "Anywhere you go, trouble seems to follow..." Liu looks to the girl and says to her, "Excuse me girl, were those men harassing you?"

    Arashi watched as the woman stalked off, and heard her inquire about what the men were talking about. He saw his chance. He could listen to the men, if he found their goal admirable, he would make it his. Otherwise, he would speak to the woman. It was win-win for Arashi.

    Well, it's only been one song, so 3 coppers is pretty good for a 3-5 minute performance. As for the song, I haven't actually written down the music, but I have it in my head, so I may write it down some time.

    listen - (1d20+7)[20]


    Aaron Lee

    Aaron smiled in bowed as the audience clapped and tossed a few coins. Sure... there weren't more than half a dozen people gathered, but it was something. However, one girl quickly got his attention. As soon as he heard "more money", Aaron was all ears. He walked toward her and looked her over quickly.

    Weeeeell...

    But before he could continue, he was interrupted by a large man in armor. It was very apparent neither of them was thinking clearly. Aaron usually disliked the "all honor" military types, and this man was no exception.

    As I was saying... Anyone in town could probably tell you those guys are mercenaries. They're pricey but they do a good job I 'spose. That fancy looking guy is 'prolly some rich dude looking for some hired muscle to protect his land or house... What with all craziness since Chin kicked the bucket...

    "Of course, I'd be happy to assist you in your dealings with them. I was meaning to speak to the man over there myself, actually. I am Liu Shen," the large man said with a warm and genuine smile as he bowed slightly. "What sort of dealings did you have in mind?"

    Turning his head slightly he nods with a smile to the minstrel, tosses a silver coin into the guitar case and says, "By the by, I did enjoy your song, what I got to hear of it."

    ''Pleased to meet you, Liu Shen. I am Sazun Inako.

    In these times, trouble is near. Perhaps should I propose our services to the community, as it will need as many warriors as it can afford. I intend to lend my firebending to them, but I guess they are not used to womens who fights.

    By the way, I assume by the fine blade you carry that you are a warrior, but the speech you gave was quite inspiring. Am I mistaken or were you an officer under the Earth King's army direction?

    in the way to Inn, to rent a room, he passed near the singer, that was talking with a women with black hair and a strong men in green clothes. And throw a silver coin to the singer and say:
    you are very good my friend, have a good day.

    Liu Shen

    "Well met, Miss Inako. And a firebender to boot, you say? Yes, I was an officer in the army," Liu remarks with a touch of bitterness, adjusting the left arm resting inside of his jade green robes.

    "Now my duties make me an emissary of the Earth Kingdom here to try to aid in the stabilizing of the region. My blade, Gunryo, is only here in case negotiations... break down, I suppose. The people this region are divided between the locals, former military, and outlaws like the Treasurers. It is my hope that I can at least unify the people and ex-military to apprehend such criminals and bring peace to this area before I can move on. I would be honored if we might work together for a time, as our goals seems to be similar, if not the same."

    Sazun Inako

    ''Fine!,'' Sazun said in a smile. ''I propose we gather other specialists willing to work to the cause. First, are you still with me, artist?'' She crouched herself, trying to get on his level to be more convincing. ''My offer keeps going, and remember, the more, the merrier!''

    Aaron Lee

    As he kneeled and scooped up the coins he had been given, Aaron listened to the two's conversation. It quickly changed from getting information to forming a militia group! But at least he found out his surmizing was correct. The large armored man had been in the army. The girl was a firebender... which was strange in these parts and simply made the boy curious as to what she was doing. The more he listened, the more he became wary of continuing along this line of thinking.

    Still, one thing kept him very interested. Money. The fact was, Aaron had plenty of it, but even he couldn't deny that he was more than a little greedy. The thought of obtaining more gold urged him. His makings as a street performer were alright--enough to keep him fed--but the thought of earning some real bounties appealed to him. And those treasurers looked like easy pickings.

    Finally, the woman crouched next to him and repeated her offer. A grin spread accross his face and he gave her a firm nod, a wordless, yet binding, affirmation. He hastily put away his guitar and pocketed the change. Slinging the case around to his back, Aaron grabbed his backpack and put it on next to it. Cocking his head he looked at Inako.

    When do we leave?
    Half-elves are like slinkies.
    They're not really good for anything,
    but you can't help laughing when they fall down the stairs.

    When Rikku threw the coin and listen this conversation he stop and say to the woman:"Excuse me, are you looking for some especialists to help in the unification of the Earth Kingdom?? I suppose that our objectives are very similar."

    Liu Shen

    Liu Shen flushes a moment, realizing how quickly this is all moving along. "Well, seeing as how we seem to be attracted so much attention here all of a sudden, shall we go find some place a little more private to make proper introductions?" Liu then gestures towards the tavern. "Perhaps over a drink?"

    sazun Inako

    Sazun was enchanted by the twist of th events. Everything was working fine! She grabbed the arm of Liu Shen and eagerly said:

    Great idea Master Shen! Do anyone has any establishment to propose?

    Liu Shen

    "Oh any is good, I suppose..." Liu Shen said with a shrug. "Hopefully it will also serve food, trail meat and crusty bread is only good for so long, eh?"

    The large man then gestures to Rikku, "And yes, come along if you'd like. The more the merrier, as Miss Inako has said. I believe we can speak with the wealthy man and his thugs at a later time." With that said, the ronin heads off to the nearest tavern in search of wine, food, and conversation.

    Liu Shen, Rikku, Aaron Lee, & Sazun Inako

    The four of you head into a tea shop just on the other side of the square. The nobleman is still deep in conversation with those surrounding him, and the peasant orator carries on with his speaches, apparently undaunted by Liu Shen's arguments.

    The tea shop is bustling, full of patrons enjoying a few cups of tea with their friends before heading home for the evening. The tea is delicious, and there are many varieties to choose from, served steaming hot in small clay mugs at your seat at one of the worn tables scattered around the room. The noise of the shop is enough that you should have no trouble avoiding attention, provided you keep your voices low.

    Arashi Koroda

    You haven't been able to overhear anything groundbreaking from the group surrounding the nobleman. Apparently, he's offering payment for mercenaries to guard his lands and home in case of a peasant uprising. He'll discuss details with applicants who show up at his plantation the next morning.

    Arashi thought hard about the nobleman's words. It would probably put gold in his pocket; it wasn't very noble or interesting at that.

    While listening to the men, he had overheard a conversation between a few people. "This is better." He thought to himself. "This is something that I can do, I'm sure it won't be much different to being a soldier."

    He followed closely behind the group, studying them intently, trying to take in as much as he could about them. He didn't even consider how polite it was. Or rather wasn't.

    Rikku
    Rikku seats at the table, he drinks a cup of tea. He feels that they are being observed, he stay alert for this, but he started to talk with Inako, his face don't show any emotion:
    First I think that I will say who I am... I am Rikku, a ex-general of the great Earth Kingdom, I commanded a infiltration squad for 7 years, but before I say more things about me, say me one thing...What a young girl like you are doing here recruiting fighters???

    Sazun Inako

    Sazun turned her head away from her cup of tea in direction of the old man, clueless by the bland face he showed while talking. She was interested in his own story, but he wanted explanation. She replies, in a most exquisite way:

    To be sincere, all of us wanderers could have joined these mercenaries outside, but two important facts makes me believe they aren't made for the job. First, they do not know how to properly treat a women. How do you expect such a rude man to protect those that need protection? Second, they were hired. By a rich men. If the most poor needs to be defended, who shall rise to help them? Certainly not this selfish noble or those ''revolutionists'' outside.
