Alright so if that's possible, the plan now becomes pay them off, retrieve Xiaoquan Shen, then set the troops onto them?

Yeah, theoretically. I would have the two negotiators "leave" with Xiaoquan Shen, but use the flute once we were a decent distance away to signal the ambushers to rush the shack. One of us "negotiators" would stay with Shen to ensure his safety while the other would likely join the fray.

OOC: Your plan to pay them off with newly acquired gold is approved, I've just been too busy of late to properly keep track of Simzhou. The reason it's approved, is that the kidnappers' whole goal is money, and your negotiators are skilled enough to convince the crooks that the money is forthcoming.

Alright. So now we all proceed with the extract Xiaoquan Shen then rain hell on them plan? No objections?

I guess we should also try and recover the kidnap gold while we do so.

The signal is playing a flute, right? So when you get the captive out just exclaim about how excited you are at your success, you feel a song forming in your mind. Whip out the flute like an eccentric rascal and ta-da...signal sent. :lol:

Yep, Ebrum gave the green light, so we're good. I'll RP Liang to push it forward, and then...yep, that's exactly the idea.

If they bring Shen out and exchange him for the - legitimate - amount of gold, we'll walk away. Once the two negotiators are on their merry way and Shen is far enough to not be in danger, I'll blow a note on the flute to signal the group to head down and eliminate the kidnappers. Recovering the money is cool, if possible, since I like shiny items, too and it's coming out of my pocket, but since he's IC'ly super rich, he won't be upset if it gets torched or lost.

After the negotiators are clear, one will stay with Shen to make sure nothing stupid happens to him, and the other one can either do the same or try to pitch in at the shack. I'm fine doing either.

RP will be coming later today, once I get a minute. And thanks, Ebrum, for popping in to confirm it!

[IC / Quest]

Liang sighed, seeing negotiations were going nowhere. They had tried to get confirmation of Shen's well-being before showing any gold, and the plan to fake the full gold total wasn't helping.

At last, the young noble pulled out a decent-size purse from his layered robes and lifted it high.

"This is the sum you're waiting for!" he announced, "We're not here to deceive you or cheat you, we simply want to know if our man is alive and well! There's 240 taels of gold in this purse, and you can count it again right here and now if you want! Just bring Xiaoquan Shen, so we can take him home and we can both be done with this business and on our way!"

In view of the shack's inhabitants, Zhou Liang would open the purse and pull a handful of gold out, tilting the container toward the shack in a show that there was literally a small fortune of gold waiting for them.

"Like I said...I'm not here for trouble, I'm here to make sure this is taken care of smoothly so that you and I can go our separate ways and everyone walks away safely! Bring Xiaoquan Shen to us, take your gold, and we'll all leave it at that!"

The ransom is paid, with the negotiator taking his cut and breathing a huge (premature?) sigh of relief. Xiaoquan Shen is released and his family are extremely grateful to Liu Shentong's regime for your attentiveness and concern for the city's prominent citizens.

Zhou Liang (temporarily?) loses 240 gold.
Last chance to snatch victory/defeat from the jaws of mediocrity, before I post the final results.

Time to trigger the alarm? Once the signal is triggered, Jiang Yan is to lead his unit to ambush anyone trying to flee the kidnapper hideout. Capture alive if possible, shoot to wound otherwise, and shoot to kill if capture/wound if not possible. Men are to shoot to kill if direct threat is imminent.

If no escape is attempted by the kidnappers, volley into their compound if no friendly units are inside. Else, surround with armed archers!

Ma Zang continues to wait for the signal. Once given he will act according to the original plan.

Once the signal is given, shoot to kill. These men chose their fate. Dai Ren will watch to make sure the two negotiators are not accosted, shooting or intercepting anyone who makes a break for them.

Once outside the arrowshot distance (unless the bandits are making the quick retreat), Meixiu will remove her scarf - the signal for the rest of the group.
As, unlike Zhou Liang, she did not give any promises, it should be she who joins against these bandits. Preferably, rather than just rushing back, observing and intercepting some remarkable bandit if one will be retreating somewhere (or pursuing them). Of course, if Zhou Liang will rush, she will stay to protect Xiaoquan Shen instead.

The signal is given, and the assembled officers and men tear through the negotiator's household like...well...trained soldiers through mostly unarmed servants and civilians. The few kidnappers who came to exchange Xiaoquan Shen for the gold are also ruthlessly cut down as they attempt to flee (two were taken alive but quickly died of wounds). The day is saved. :zhangfei:

Xiaoquan Shen's family and the surrounding community are deeply impressed by the implacable and overwhelming (if not very discerning or discriminating) hand of justice.

You recover 247 gold from the dead.
