“We are, none of us, any tracks concentric involved mediation.” Definitely an indie kind of thing. And alittle crazy. But if the PCs want any answers, they’
ll go and spend an evening at the Guffaw Palace.
The PCs decide to go to the comedy club to speak with Dr. Aboid Ja’mahl.
Area 3: Central Situationers Fare Well Daily
Dr. Aboid Ja’mahl is onstage and doing his routine. During it, he drops hi
nts about the
toan oblivious audience. Most of his jokes the PCs already know to be facts. Others will be new information. At the end of the show, the PCs can try to go backstage
or wait for him at his apartment
to speak with him.
“So I was a doctor to this tribe, and the first day they had me smoke what felt like a metric ton
because I had to catch up with everyone else!” [truth]
“You don’t want to mess with these people, ok –
they’re terrible, just dangerous. O
ne of themtook an axe, right, and threw it in the air
right over the guy’s head –
the axe, not thehead
it goes flying to land in someone’s roof. But the guy, right –
he falls down like he just got
knocked in the balls. Crazy!” [truth]
digging around for a proper-
sized leaf when my foot slipped in the last guy’s poo, and
probably around this time I must have hit a tree or something
but I wake up, and this four-armed monkey gives me a present. Do you know what it was? Well. Given my line of research, it
was quite the happy ending.” [false]
“Let me tell you something about magical science –
I mean, arcane thaumatergics. It’s the mostbeautiful, worst thing that can happen to your life. It’s true! One day you sit down and
memorize the things you forgot the day before
except how to read them
and then, you find
out the entire plan of the universe is sketched in a day.” [unsure]
The PCs decide to speak with Dr. Ja’mahl either at the club or at his apartment.
Area 4: So’s
Round and Waiting for One
The PCs are within eyesight of Dr. Aboid when he is confronted by an atach, a three-armed giant. He
turns to flee. The PCs have a chance to save him. The atach will flee after Dr. Ja’mahl dies or if the PCs
start a fight: its goal
was only to kill the doctor. If saved, Dr. Ja’mahl pretty much confirms what the PCs
know as well as the reward, though for his life he does them a favor: there is no million gp. It was a poor attempt to garner attention for the field of meta-divination, but every wizard disavows the ideas as utter crock. The doctor is convinced the
only functions as a fancy randomized glowing thing.
