  2. All Aboard the Good Ship Desc: The Compass Rose is a cruise ship that travels between many common ports. Carrying passengers from Eorzea's wealthy elite to meet with their eastern counterparts for the party of the century... the Compass Rose has hired 'staff' to see to their needs. Though... there may be something nefarious about this crew. Goal: The crew that will be taking up roles during the Rose Ball finale will meet up to discuss their part in the role-play leading up to catastrophe. Everyone will have an alias they need to use to make sure complete control over the chaos. Possible roles include: Wait staff, security, sailors and crew, and party guests. Wait Staff will need to attend to the needs of the guests, be polite and servile. They will have to wear a uniform (Best Man's jacket and slacks or Maid Outfit). Security will be positioned variably around the ship. They will expected to be silent, diligent and provide safety and security for the guests above all others. (No uniform but expected to be 'presentable') Sailors will not be allowed into the Ballroom during the party. (No uniform but are expected to speak like a sailor for the purpose of their disguise) Party Guests must dress according to their proposed station and maintain a haughty better-than-you attitude toward all other "non-guests". Must be able to speak with eloquence or at least fake it. (No uniform but must have their clothing approved by Evaleigh) Overseeing: Arielle (GM) / Vren Participating: ??? Resolution: ???
  3. Allies in the East Desc: Before the Compass Rose arrives a small group will be sent on a diplomatic mission to Othard to negotiate an alliance of opportunity ... Goal: Meet with the leaders of either the Yakuza of Kugane or the Confederates in the Ruby Sea to inform them of the great opportunity the Compass Rose will provide. A prime target, the Compass Rose, will be in the territory very soon full of riches beyond imagining ripe for plunder. A "superior fighting force" is necessary to contend with the security. Brute force is clearly the way to go. Lies will be told. Regardless of the group that is brought into the fold they will be betrayed. This information must not come out or it can compromise the entire mission. The group will get to decide who to deal with Yakuza or Confederates but each group has a different reason for being interested and a different tactic of negotiation they will respond favorably with. Either group or both can be tried but there are conditions for failure with each. Failure is an option and it will have significant consequences. Overseeing: Arielle (GM) / Vren Participating: ??? Resolution: ???
  4. Smuggled Cargo Desc: Not everything that gets shipped is done through the proper channels. There are some things that the law frowns upon and that common sense questions whether or not it should be put in a box, on a boat, by people who are just in it for the gil... Goal: The Compass Rose is docked outside of Vesper Bay. The crew must get the cargo on board without it being inspected. The crew will meet up with the porters outside of Horizon with a wagon carrying a very large set of crates. When asked "how large" the answer was given "Uh...bear sized?" Overseeing: Arielle (GM) / Rende Participating: ??? Resolution: ???

Rumors & Information The Compass Rose is Hydaelyn's most prestigious cruise ship catering to the wealthy elite. Every year they host an invitation-only ball. Last year rumor has it they served roasted peacock and gold crusted sachatorte. Evaleigh De'loncre came to the Triad with an opportunity that could make them millions. Her client was impressed by their last job and has something even better in mind for them. Campaign Milestones The Master Plan Desc: A private meeting was held between Evaleigh De'loncre, leader of the Liar's Triad and her Aces to discuss an upcoming "opportunity". Who knows the details of what was discussed but they were in there for hours. The Clubs will be in charge of the job Smuggled Cargo. The Hearts will be in charge of the job Allies in the East The Diamonds and Spades will jointly be in charge of the Rose Ball staffing and preparations. Information is being withheld by Evaleigh De'loncre on purpose so that if any of the crews fail in their mission the consequences will be isolated and the entirety of the mission will not be compromised. The true backer of the mission is after a specific item, the Tithe provided by the Garlean Engineer. All other items are to be considered potential bounties and compensation, but this one item needs is spoken for. The job will include several double-crosses to further obfuscate those involved. Diversions will be set up to create chaos during the ball but all the madness is orchestrated by the master planner of the heist. The goal is to make the Triad out to be heroes to the guests so any bounties being placed are upon the allies-made-patsies.

A grand ball to be hosted on board the Compass Rose invites the elite and wealthy of Kugane to attend a luxury day cruise. As part of entry to the cruise a 'tithe' must be paid giving everyone an opportunity to one-up themselves in announcing what item of luxury or rare artifact they brought to show off to the other wealthy elite. Also, poking fun at the annoying Confederate rabble of the Ruby Sea is always amusing. What could go wrong?

Forbidden Knowledge. This information is listed only for context and GM support. It is not okay to assume. Help, Help! I'm under arrest! Desc: There are no phone calls in the Ul'dahn gaol but with the right about of bribery a message might slip out. The note passed along to Evaleigh De'loncre about the imprisonment of an ally who needs help being freed. Resolution: Evaleigh agrees to take on the case. She manages to negotiate a transfer of the prisoner to more agreeable lodgings and have his case taken before the magistrate. Though the evidence against her ally seems rather grim and his freedom might be a temporary stay. A note was sent to Evaleigh De'loncre from a prisoner accused of treason and smuggling for the Garleans. Lost in the Right Place Desc: Hired by Evaleigh as a measure of scouting and information gathering, a young Miqo'te is given the task to listen and observe outside the Magistrate's office. Resolution: A report of the comings and goings at what time is provided. Promises of additional cookies are given if the Miqo'te repeats this act for the next few weeks. Evaleigh has been bribing street rats in Ul'dah with cookies to stand around and count guards. Checkpoint Abuse! Desc: A trade company has been suffering at the hands of greedy Blades of late who have taken to fleecing their caravans and taking goods in the name of "contraband". While recognized that as representatives of "law and order" killing these men is grounds for being labelled bandits perhaps a different lesson... and relieve them of something they hold dear. Their armor. A representative of the trade company will pay rather handsomely for the Brass Blade's armor and the satisfaction they had to walk all the way to Ul'dah in their namesday suits and explain what happened to their superiors.. Overseeing: Twilight Rose (Arielle) Participating: Ana (Van's alt), Arch and Jet Resolution: A dubious plan was put into motion with Ana and Archael posing as traveling traders hired to provide a honey pot for would-be thieves tried to beguile the two brass blades while Jet snuck in behind. Hilarity ensued with a plan that very nearly went sideways when Jet's cover was blown but a new story was quickly made up and Arch "captured" Jet. They offered to share expensive whiskey with the soldiers but when they became suspicious things went from violent to confusing. In the end two brass blade armor sets were obtained. In addition the quick thinking of Ana she managed to uncover a good amount of stolen goods. Best efforts would be made to reunite the goods with their original owners but what was not would be used for good purposes. Except the drugs, those vanished. The Roegadyn involved in the Highbridge heist was seen a week later treating all her friends to rounds of drinks at the Whispered Wish brothel. She even bought one young man his 'first time' with a pretty Miqo'te girl. The Docket Swap Desc: A small team of covert operatives will be given a set of fake documents that they must swap out with the real ones inside the Vizier's office. As expected when it comes to the Divan, the group responsible for overseeing matters of law within Ul'dah, it's heavily guarded. The plan would be, unless a better one is proposed, for 1-2 people to pose as members of the Brass Blades to stand post at the door and allow the thiefs entrance. The thieves would then be able to slip inside, find the mentioned docket, replace it and get out before the time is up and without disturbing anything "extra". Overseeing: Evaleigh / Arielle (OOC) Participating: Mikha Namaliyo, Shelyna Arah, Vox Aminah, Miyara Yaeger, Tobias Reed Resolution: In the stolen Brass Blade armor Vox and Shelyna performed a shift change with the two guards on duty. Mikha guarded the door while inside Miyara's theatrics convinced the Secretary to question his life choices and abandon his post in search of a drink. With all the witnesses dealt with except the unconscious Highlander in his cell Miyara and Tobias searched the Magistrate's office. In spite the spill of some books onto the floor the two managed to investigate and deduce the whereabouts of the dossier and successfully swap them. Outside the Highlander made a scene but Vox and Shelyna's quick thinking along with Mikha letting them know what was coming they convinced the local blades the Highlander had tried to attack them while being fed. No one believed the lunatic and all made it out without a hitch. The Highlander being held on drug charges went crazy and attacked a guard! Hear she really gave him what was coming to him! The magistrate's secretary hates his job and wishes you would all go away. The highlander was left alive in his cell but all his professions of thieves were not heeded, after all he also accused Brass Blades of attempted murder. Clearly the man was out of his mind. Gudo Budo was caught smuggling drugs and what was worse trying to do so without cutting the Syndicate in. Gudo Budo is the name on the docket that was swapped out with the one in the Magistrate's office The magistrate has a safe where he keeps ledgers about bribes and other illegal dealings, a mountain of criminal evidence not being utilized because it benefits his allies. The next morning the criminal known as Gudo Budo had the charges of treason and consorting with Garleans added to his list of charges. The previous suspect was released from custody and his name stricken from the records having ever been arrested as per the agreement with his representative.
