    He hands you an item that looks like a coin, but lighter. Odd engravings cover it, but you can't make sense out of any of them. "This will tell you when to meet me. At the square, sometime in the next week. Be there as soon as you can. And if you lose it... high treason is punishable by death." he says, bowing to you. "Anything else you need to know?" he asks, standing and putting the cloak back on.

    "Can I modify this at all?" Brandon asks, looking at the coin. "And how does it communicate? Telepathically?"

    He grins. "You'll know. Trust me. And don't tamper with it. I need it back when I collect you."

    "I'm not sure. It will be before the festivities end, however." he says, looking over his shoulder. "See what you can do about staying out of trouble until then. I've go plenty of trouble for you to get into later."

    "Very well. I will see you then." Brandon then goes to check out the feats of skill and the prizes the rewards for winning them.

    Many competitions are being had, including knife fighting and archery at the moment. Wrestlers are preparing to start in an hour or so off to the side.

    Round 1 is a 1 GP entry fee. Each person gets 5 arrows and one minute t score as many points as they can.
    If you're interested, go ahead and roll to hit 5 times. Damage is not necessary.

    Brandon pays the 1 GP entry fee and lets loose with his five arrows.

    [OOC: Use careful shot each time
    5d20 → [16,1,4,9,18]

    First Arrow:
    16 + 3 Dex + 2 Weapon Prof + 1 Prime Shot + 2 Careful Shot = 24 to hit

    Second Arrow:
    1 - Critical miss
    However, if I still hit due to critical miss tables:
    1d20 → [15] = (15) + 3 + 2 + 1 + 2 = 23 to hit

    Third Arrow:
    4 + 3 + 2 + 1 + 2 = 12 to hit

    Fourth Arrow:
    9 + 3 + 2 + 1 + 2 = 17 to hit

    Fifth Arrow:
    18 + 3 + 2 + 1 + 2 = 26 to hit

    A shoddy performance by the excuse for competition yields you a victory.
    B 20
    1 12

    40 gold is the total prize money, along with a cloth package from the contest organizer. "Made'em m'self. I think you'll like'em." he says with a wink.

    Inside the package are five arrows, beautifully made. The fletching is too precise to be anything short of artistic, and the head could probably split a hair. He smiles at you. "Comgratulations, sir!"

    Brandon comments on the handiwork of the man, then goes off to see what else is in store.

    (OOC: I'm assuming masterwork arrows? So +1?)

    (OOC: They are +1 arrows, yes)

    He nods, "If you ever need more, I've got lots at my shop!" he exclaims, loud enough that several people nearby begin asking him about it. A little free advertising in return for hosting a contest is a fair trade though.

    The knife fights have just finished and the wrestlers are beginning their preliminary rounds. Later this afternoon is some sort of race which has an entirely too complicated map of the course.

    A man in formal wear steps beside you. "Looking at entering, eh?" he asks with a smile. "It's a pretty tough course. See, you need to go through town and find a keyholder in red. There will be one key for each contestant. Each keyholder will hold between one and three keys. So following someone might be a good idea, it might not. Getting there first, is."

    "That key will unchain a horse from the stables on the other side of town. From there, you need to collect the jewels - they're fake, so don't think about running off with them - from baskets located around the walls. Get all four, return the horse and the jewels to the stablemaster for a fifth jewel - also fake - which you will give to a keymaster in blue. You might find the blue one before you find the red one. If you do, remember where he is, but also remember that if you take too long, someone else might get his key first."

    "From there, you come back here with the key and open one of the chests over there. Inside is a prize for you. Also, the first person to make it back here gets to spend a night in the keep, with all the amenities of a lord of the house, while the second and third person here will have dinner in the keep, though will not be allowed to stay afterwards."

    "Complicated enough?" he asks, cheerily.

    Brandon cocks his eye. "That sounds complicated, even for a man who spent most of his life tracking individuals down. What is the cost to enter?"
