Captured Mereclar
Hello dear Board,

I've been away for awhile - busy at work - damn.

Anyway, in last session the party managed to capture Mereclar. As he is not detailed at least beside his red plumet helm and green clothes, I'd like to get some suggestion how he is going to conduct when interrogated.

I'm especially puzzled what he's likely to know. He has received a letter from Naquent, so I'd assume that he
has met her and knows her appearance.

Any guidelines to give?

Puzzled,
FB

(Hi, Fuzz - welcome back!)

Mereclar may have met Naquent. Once. My guess is that she will have made an effort to look as imposing as possible. So whatever he says will be tinged by that.

I don't know about you, but I'd say he was a mercenary. Evil, and maybe a bit unhinged (he rides a Howler, for cryin' out loud!), but not necessarily that much into the whole EEE-thing. I'd just have him know whatever it says people know at the West Entrance. Oh, and top it off with a fairly inaccurate description of Naquent.

Funny, I've been also thinking that he is a mercenary. I can't find any reference for this in RTOEE, but somehow it fits.

I vision Mereclar as quite rough, a bit like Clinteastwood in any of his Spagetti Westerns. =)

Technically his boss is Terrenygit, but in IMC the party
managed to slay that armored lizard in the first session within the CRM, so he's basically been boss-less for the last few weeks trying to run the gate even better than before. This, to get prestige and more salary from Naquent. Also, the monetary problems of paying to the mook-guards have been solved by confiscating Terrenygit's equipment and wealth.

I added a letter to his room that is not finished that basically says:
- Terrenygit is dead
- Mereclar can make sure that Earth temple will not take over the gate (he has now read Terrenygit's letters), IF Naquent could send more money to secure the loyalty of the guards.

Thanks, Siob.

Cheers,

Other than the basic knowledge which is described in the Main Gate General Notes, on pg 43., I think that Mereclar might be a good canidate to give some of the information in the Foreshadowing sidebar, on pg 52.

Specifically, #2 Doomdreamers powers!

On the other hand, he could know about The Champion of Elemental Evil or Half-elementals ... but I wouldn't give it all away at once.

Good idea - when I get home, I have to read that sidebar again.

Game is tomorrow, I'll let you know what happens on Monday... =)

Thanks again,

Whoops.

So much for preparation. =(

One of the party's fighters who had been prisoner of Earth Temple earlier and still had most of his equipment at the Earth Temple, deciced it was revenge time! And "wisely" chopped Mereclar's head off after he answered truthfully that he didn't know anything about the fighter's equipment.

Well, the ways of the players are always a mystery...

Thanks for the help anyway.

Cheers,
FB
