Faction: Outlaws (my last Outlaw build!)
Total character points: 19
I have set out to find my the diamonds that were stolen. My tracking led me straight into Rainos. Of course, I was never spotted, and I don't ever plan to be known. I reached Guaire and discovered that the rumors about precious diamonds found there were indeed true. I figured that would be the first place I'd look for my diamonds. Unfortunately, I realized that my diamonds were taken away and put securely with loads of other diamonds at the center of Guaire. I had to figure out another way to get my money's worth of the diamonds that were stolen from me. By observing how diamonds were being transported from the mine to the center of Guaire, I set up some fake diamonds in a crate by a bunch of food, and another chest of fake diamonds on a side of a wall that was blocked off from the view of people passing by. The soldiers blocked off a whole section of the city behind an overhead walkway so that diamonds could be transported and guarded on top of the overhead walkway.
I have been planning this for days, the whole side of the city behind this walkway is free from people, that is where the second chest of fake diamonds are. I just have to wait for the right momement...
He's coming towards me. Good. Now I have mapped out his routine.
Just a few more seconds now.
Wait for it...
Now is the time to move!
I leap from my spot and fling my whip over the edge of the walkway above...
... and just slightly tap the crate of fake diamonds I had placed earlier...sending it to the ground.
I skillfully roll onto the walkway.
CRASH! The sound of the crate as it toppled over onto the street where the guards were was a frightening sound indeed. It was loud enough so that I wasn't heard.
Besides, with all of those nice looking diamonds scattered on the ground, the guards have more important things to worry about ;)
Guards: Diamonds sir! Diamonds!
While they are busy with fake *ahem* diamonds, I walk over to my rope on the unoccupied side of the city.
I climb down, hearing the angry voices of the guards. Now it's time to wait.
Commander (Spagard): "Get those Diamonds back in the crate! We don't need anyone taking these! Why as this crate of diamonds put with all of this food? I want answers!"
--Then footsteps were heard on top of the wall. A cart and some men escorting it were seen--
Commander (Spagard): "Hey you! Yes you! We found some more diamonds down here, send some of your men down here to get them!"
Commander (Waver): "Very well. Stop the cart."
Commander (Waver): "Put the cart down!"
Commander (Waver): "And you two, go down and bring up the crate of diamonds."
--Two of the soldiers put their weapons over the wall for the two other soldiers to climb down with.--
Commander (Spagard): "Stop eating chicken! You're supposed to be watching the diamonds!"
--The two soldiers climb down the wall--
While the guards are busy watching the commotion below, I have another mission to do.
Time to swap out the diamonds! *silent chuckle*
I carefully slice the thin wood and let the diamonds fall silently to the ground. Now to swap them!
I hear lots of loud arguing about how to get my box of fake diamonds up the wall efficiently. No one bothers to look at the real diamonds in the cart.
That's the last one. Now to head out of here!
--The guards finally get some progress, they climb on top of barrels and boxes and lift the crate to the guards on top of the wall.--
I slowly push the locked chest over the side of the wall just as the guards are lifting the crate over the wall
--The guards below jumped to lift the crate to the soldiers on top of the wall, so they fell down and made an even bigger mess.--
I slip away just in time.
--The guards climb back up the wall as the other guards place the crate full of fake diamonds onto the cart.--
--And they continue on, oblivious to the fact that they had been swindled.--
