    Chronicle of the Scavenger Lands (Exalted 3E) - IC

    "We live in a world of magic, Captain," Ysandre answers, "what you saw was an example of that. I thank you for your loyalty to my father and the realm, and for sparing us the pain of fighting loyal Nalian soldiers." With that, she starts off towards the area of the palace that once housed her...

    "I am Ysandre de la Courcel and as you should know my father's chosen successor," she repeats, "I did not murder him and I certainly did not consort with demons or any other enemies of the realm. Yet my brother chased me from my home on pain of death and gave over the kingdom to death, terror...

    They were not in any danger, and now we've thrown any semblance of stealth to the wind.

    Except that I'd laid out what the plan was. I'm sorry for being absent for a few days, but we've had considerably longer downtimes before, and there was really no reason at all to bring an entire army into the palace before we had control of the gatehouse.

    Throwing back the hood of her cloak, Ysandre steps up past Ryan and addresses the guards, "stand down soldier," the young queen orders with steel in her voice. "Quincel's days are over, but there is no need for good men of Nalia to spill their blood for a usurper. I am my father's heir, and the...

    Yeah. It's just that the situation really didn't seem to demand it, so I'm confused whey they'd suddenly appear.

    I'm confused. Just how many people are standing here in the open?

    I'd like to point out that Ailera has Lock-Opening Touch which has the text: "The Exalt may open a mundane lock simply by touching it and paying five motes. " We only need to be stealthy until the door is open.

    "Is five people to a patrol considered large?" Ysandre asks somewhat puzzled, "and no. We are close to the palace, this would be considered one of the safest places in the city normally. Regardless, the palace gatehouse should be fairly close, around the corner up there," she continues and...

    Curse of Strahd [CLOSED]

    "I thought the same thing," Fiana answers softly and moves to examine the portraits. She is careful to lift the covering without pulling them down so that they can make the fact of their presence be as unobtrusive as possible once they move on.

    I don't exactly how this works in Ex3. Can you make non-lethal attacks with lethal weapons? Having to forgo your primary hurts, but if you can hit people with the flat of the blade for a +2 difficulty or something, we outmatch them enough that it's pretty much murder to not take them alive.

    If it works, I'm inclined to let Axtis open the door and have Ysandre walk in and try and turn the guards to the Cause... With the armed men and women ready to skewer anyone who doesn't get with the programme. Or give them a good knock in the noggin' at least.

    Well, in principle there is. Remember, LOT works on Glorious Solar Bullshit, not logic, so the fact that it's in principle possible to wedge something very thin into the gap between the wall and the gate and lift off the bar might arguably be enough.

    Does Lock-Opening Touch still work if the gate is barred?

    Is the gatehouse in sight? How high is the wall? Where are the guards in relation to the door, and will they be able to see us approach it?
