Recounting Encounters: Murder in Baldur's Gate - Session 5

Murder in Baldur's Gate is an interactive module where the party chooses their paths.

The players affiliate themselves with a faction: Duke Thorin Silvershield, from the Upper City, Ulder Ravengard, current leader of the mercenary band of the Flaming Fist and protectors of the Lower City, and ...well let's just say it is a representative of the Guild, a Robin Hood thieves organisation.

The party is then pulled into their various task, and taking into consideration their various assignments, and the stories fly all over Baldur's Gate.  You have to listen to believe it.

Listen as Derek, Craig and I talk about what happened at our respective tables.

Stage 4 - Hands Off

Garbage is on strike and the place is filthy, the Thieves Guild is at it again.  Ravengard is running for the council of 4 but has some serious opposition.  Sounds like a boring week...or is it.  Only one of us played this week, yet managed to take (in my opinion) a sad encounter and turn it into a nice piece of work.

What are your players going to do?  Will they seek out the miscreants and bring them to justice?  Will they support Ravengard or will they start their own secrets and hold this over some of the people's heads. How did they fare and how did they resolve this situation?
