Ransom for Rufus

Post by Erik »

Warlord Rufus has been captured by the Lunars! I will offer 200L towards his ransom, and I call upon the Temple of Orlanth to contribute to the freedom of their loyal Initiate. I call upon my friends and colleagues to join me in gaining freedom for the brave Rufus.

(OOC: Can a rescue attempt be conditional upon the result of a ransom offer? ie: can we order attempt rescue in week X if ransom offer has been refused).

I feel that a hero as dangerous to the Lunars as Rufus will not be released by them for any ransom, and his friends and colleagues should attempt to break him out of captivity instead.
I would happily take part in a rescue attempt (say week 1 to avoid the risk of Rufus catching a disease), but I am more cunning than brawny, and we will need both; would any strong heroes care to join me?

Great idea, Erik! We should start with the collected pool of money that was offered for Griselna's ransom, but which the Lunars refused. Please keep me informed if there is to be a rescue attempt. We need to get Rufus's freedom back!

ooc

Ransom is CHA x 100 L = 1200 L

So far we have 450 L pledged.

I can immediately pledge the 150 L that I offered for Griselna.

[ooc] waiting on the rules query to see if Rufus can help pay his own ransom. 1200 L is quite a stretch. Unfortunately I think his wealthy mistress is lower status than him so does not normally pay into the ransom fund.

[ooc] true. Nevertheless Ivarenna has written to her anyway. You never know.

I would have thought that a wealthy lover should have the possibility to contribute something towards a captive of equal or higher status, even if less than they would for a lower status partner. However, do we want to keep changing the rules?
