Testing the Waters 3.5

Chapter 1: Escape from Enslavement

- About a week after being captured, the prisoners’ numbers dwindled from a dozen to four. Many were taken out of their cells, never to return, with the exception of Sarah.
- The guards and jailer eventually stopped showing up; two days later, an elderly man stumbled into the prison and managed to unlock the cell doors — then fell down, dead.
- With still no explanation as to why they were captured, and still no reason as to why they were suddenly released, the group retrieved their belongings from a nearby chest. Besides Valgrim’s clothes, which were not present, all of the equipment was in good shape.

The following event took place several days before the start of the campaign:

- She revived the half-orc, who in turn assisted her.
- When given the chance to flee and attempt escape, she instead turned back to assist the now-dying half-orc and was eventually knocked unconscious by a guard’s left hook.
- She was dragged back to her cell, and the Baron was furious. The crowd, on the other hand, was very pleased and entertained. Thus, she was allowed to live and avoided being reprimanded.
