As Carth gets back from hunting you notice that the Deep Gnomes are getting really restless. They start to mess with their bindings. What do you do?
I kick them down and threaten if they do mess with their bindings again there will be consequences
The one that appears to be the leader does not listen and continues. You do not know if he understands you or not.
I tell the 2nd one to repeat what I said
As you start to order your slaves to do you will your brother Carth scowls at you. You know that he does not agree with the concept with slavery and down right refuses to worship Lolth. That is the reason you both were kicked out of Menzoberranzan.
Ask if Carth would rather set the slaves free?
“Yes that would ease my guilt a bit but i thought you wanted to make a few platinum off of them.” Carth replies
Pulls Carth aside. “Why sell them if we can just take the platinum? Maybe we could make a truth with the slaves have them on ourside? If they refuse and attack us we surely are stronger?”
“You do have a point,” Carth whispers, “but id rather not kill anyone even if they do begin to attack us.”
“Then what do you recommend that we do if they attack?” I look over my shoulder at the slaves when I hear rustling.
“I recommend that we give them a choice.” Carth replies quietly
Carth Walks up to the gnomes and says “You have a choice to go free and go back to your home or go free and help us if you want because we have not treated you indecently.”
Carth cuts the bindings and lets them go.
The gnomes get up and start to converse about the topic
I approach the gnomes “Helping us would be invaluable for both of us you get survival experience maybe even riches and so will we. So everyone wins.” Not sure if the looks on the gnomes faces were agreement or distaste so I added how the experiences can be passed down hopefully helping the gnomes prosper…. I tried smiling sincerely hopefully they bought that because the thought of gnomes being anything more than slaves is laughable.
The gnome that appears to be the leader walks forward and nods in agreement hoping that the riches are more beneficial than the companionship of the drow in the party
you have two choices go back to Menzoberranzan or go deeper into the Underdark
I suggest deeper in the Underdark after all we have been kicked out of Menzoberranzan remember? So why return the only option is to move forward. However I slip next to Carth and whisper “Be wary of the gnomes I don’t trust them.”
“I agree.” Carth whispers back, “but the least we can do is look friendly.”
Noticing a fountain of water I grumble “Fine” Put on a friendly face I walk over the gnomes And offer “We should stock up on water, I hope you got your flasks today so we all can get a fair share.”
“I agree” Carth replies
Carth refills his water skin as well as preserves the rothe he has brought in from his last hunt
The party sets out on a journey that may claim the live of them all
