LFG: Strange Things Afoot at the Circle K
Time: 2020-08-02 @ 22:00 GMT
GM: Xzandrate
Difficulty: 2 Hard

Rumor: Strange things are afoot at the Circle K ranch. For one, they used to supply milk and meat to nearby settlements, but in the last several weeks, that supply has dried up entirely. For another, no one from the ranch has come to market at all, save for a mother and her son who escaped and speak of a nefarious Boss Regan, who runs the ranch with an iron fist. He works the laborers near to death and refuses to pay anyone, claiming room and board is payment enough. Something must be done.

Benefit: Counts as Questor ordeal Lochost

Requestor: Juniper

Note: (6 Eastern)

The following is a recollection from Jarock Hammer-Shield, a secluded Ork Weaponsmith. The text remains unaltered to maintain its authenticity. It is written in Or'zet.

The first job takes me to Sosanopa. Shortage of pumpkin bread and pumpkin seeds for trail rations. Recruited by Juniper, an elf. Also recruited Redsun Thandrun and Dale Corson. Directed to Dary, a baker in Sosanopa. Through investigation, Juniper finds source as Circle K Ranch, west of Sosanopa. All issues point to Boss Regan. People vanishing. Slaves working under the guise of a blood contract. Locals scared. Found a Horror.

Tactically, did well. With their master away, the remaining three guards were easily dispatched. Horror constructs, scarecrows, joined the fight.
No injuries. Surprise attack from the barn. The second day, didn't do well. The Horror, Regan, and more constructs are dispatched. Knocked unconscious. Juniper nearly killed, needed last chance salve. Team was unlucky. Juniper did decent damage throwing knives and shadow knives. Endless supply? Dale mesmerized guards, bolstered my armor with a spell. Other spells ineffective. Redsun did decent damage with his bow. I lit the constructs on fire and kept the guards attention. I kept the constructs attention. My team wasn't hurt until I was knocked out. It was a good job.

My gahad showed. Saw a woman being whipped. Swallowed it, got a headache. Took it out on so called masters. Killed some, knocked out the rest. Disgraceful and mocked by Juniper.

Mystery town near Servos Jungle? Runaway pumpkin? Must investigate, but no funding.

After battle, made crossbow for Redsun. Forged it. Offered to make throwing knives for Juniper. No answer yet. Will make my war hammer. Will Forge it. Will train to second circle. Still hate journals. Weaponsmith, not Scholar.
