"Hm. It would definitely improve the mood around here. What did you have in mind? Have Eryl make a small announcement, or something more festive?"

Pebbles shares his thoughts with Eryl and the rest of the group.
"That's an excellent assessment", Eryl exclaims. "After our interrogation we'll lock him in the gaol for a while. Even a small victory such as this should raise the townspeople's spirits."
He looks over the group, "I assume you'll want to join us for the interrogation. Come along."

He then heads upstairs to where the goblin is being held.

OOC: I'll let you post any questions/actions you want to direct to the goblin before I continue on.

Sanzaru isn't great at interrogation. He's comfortable with fighting and interrogating, but the whole lying and torturing areas are hard for him to comprehend. He much prefers when a cleric casts a truth spell, which probably won't be happening in this situation.

If there's any questions/info that you would like to specifically ask (or have Eryl ask) the goblin for you post them here. I will put up a new post to continue the game tonight - questions or not.

Well, we wan't to know why he's chosen to harass this area. how many warriors does he have, whats the best way to defeat all of them, where are they holed up, who is the spy in the town? how many spies are there? Is the entrance to the lair trapped. where do they hide their best loot.

It'd also be good to namedrop some of Ifon's findings (the location, the priest, etc) to see if there is any recognition. Sorry for being so brief -- camping trip and using my phone. I will clean up this if I get home before Blazeguards post.

After several hours, using Eryl's 'interrogation' techniques, you have been able to extract the following information:

- Gritznak is definitely holed up in Baleon Nakt
- Gritznak has an army of kobold, goblins, and gnolls in and around the temple and dungeon (unfortunately you weren't able to get a specific number other than 'lots')
- Gritznak has had them collecting people for some reason but the goblin claimed he didn't know why

Unfortunately, continued interrogation failed to reveal anymore useful information.

When the interrogation was over, Eryl hauled the goblin out to the gaol and locked him up for all to see. As for the town, you notice a significant shift towards optimism although you get the sense that the townspeople have no idea what is really going on.

After basking in the accolades all afternoon, you regroup at the tavern to discuss your next move. As you're sitting there, Eryl strides up and announces "Say hi to Boldol. He just showed up to help with our problem. Maybe you can use some help, seein' as your lady friend seems to have disappeared." He steps aside to reveal a short, heavily-armored halfling grinning up at you.

(you're up Boldol)

Boldol continues smiling his usual cheery smile and takes a quick puff of his pipe. He walks up and says, "Boldol, son of Boldor, at your service. I heard you were in need of another sword. I'm not much of a sword swinger, but my dagger and my spear cut down goblins just as well. I was just passing through, but I figure there's more safety in numbers than there is when I travel alone."

Boldol also looks around and requests an ale.
