2 players max, 25 posts, 300 words per post
Gregor Cassel an upcoming politician who's campagne show him as a voice of the masses, a supporter of the poor and the working class is gaining a lot of influence lately. So much that he has become quite nuisance to those who of greater wealth and positions. And now that his following grows larger with the day there are people who fear the moment he gains enough votes to be part of the Council. Afraid of the changes it will bring, to their own lifestyle.
Because of this a handful of people have decided that Gregor needs to be dealt with in the form of an assassination. But knowing that they couldn't do this themselves they turned towards the dark guilds of Fiore and are willing to pay a handsome fee to anyone who is willing to take up this job. However there is one condition, Gregor's death must not show any connection to them. Nor does it need to look like an accident. That would raise to much questions, and would start rumors that could damage the clients reputations. So in order to divert the attention from them you have to kill Gregor in public and claim the kill openly for your guild.
This job will be a success when you have fled the city and killed Gregor as planned.
When you encounter Gregor, he will be surrounded by 10 weak guards regardless of the dice. The moment you will escape Crocus you will roll the dice 15 times to determine the city-guards that will try to stop your escape.
City Guard, the regular soldiers who patrols the streets of Crocus and top priority is the safety of it's citizens. They are armed with a sword and shield. Their attacks count for D rank damage
City Guard Suppression Squad, heavy armored knights who wield spears and broad shields. These guys are quite strong, enough that one thrust with their spears is equal to one C rank damage. Their shield are protected with magical layers that let's them to deflect 50% damage of every C rank spell that is casted.
Squadron Commander, heavy armored knights that have gained their positions through experience. These guys are the veterans among the City Guard and have trained their whole life. If you encounter them watch out, because their claymores have a long reach and deal double B rank damage with each hit.
The Masked Mad Mystic, Kuro, sighed, as he waited for his partner. He was too impatient these days, perhaps he needed to learn more patience before he was ready to undertake team jobs. It seemed like it, since that last job with Nakiya and Za'acha. He was rather annoyed at Za'acha for stealing his kill, but even then, it was due to his own impatient nature, electrocuting an entire platoon of knights. To be fair, he dropped a building on them, and that usually signaled the end of a fight. He had to admire how stubborn they were, but that did not lessen his irritation about the boss not showing up until the last minute. The fact that Za'acha had stolen his kill afterwards was even worse. Then, to top it off, Nakiya decided it would be a good idea to call his call of her bluff which wasnt a bluff. It basically ended up with him having a very broken arm for the time, and having it painfully played with by Nakiya. He liked her and all, but he really should have kicked her ass for that.
In any case, his mind wandered towards the current situation. Having returned to the guild from that job, Kuro had sought another, specifically one of a higher rank. Thankfully, his arm had healed, though he forgot how. Anyway, he was fully powered now, so he had little to worry about from most mages. Most being anyone below B rank. It was stupid how much rank implied, but it helped determine whether or not someone would be a threat to him. At the very least, he had his swords, and physical abilities, which were at least a match for even a B rank mage. Anyway, after he had healed, he wanted another job, and one in particular someone was already going on, Mikomi Ariel, the person from that weird incident which was still fresh in his mind. Said incident was where he was a she and she was a he. Strange, but amusing. Since she was going on the job, Kuro decided to join her, because of the idiotic rules about ranking and whatnot. At the very least, he could deal with doing jobs above his own rank. The stupid part was how he needed someone else with him. You'd think a dark guild wouldnt have such silly rules, but whatever.
So there he stood, on the edge of the city, where he expected to meet her. He could wait patiently for her, and he would. He needed to practice his patience anyway. His classic mask and cloak were covering his body, which revealed his identity to those who he had worked with in the past. Considering he never left any witnesses aside from those who were on a job with him, it was unlikely anyone would notice him, especially considering he was not bothering anyone. If he had been stalking someone in the street, he would be under heavy watch, but since he was just leaning on a building and waiting for someone with his arms crossed, everyone assumed he was just an impatient performer of some kind. It would not be the first time...
