BitD Session 1 – Raid the Red Sash Infirmary

  • The Lampblacks are at war with the Red Sashes.
  • The party meets with Bazso Baz, leader of the Lampblacks
  • Bazso asks them to run a smash & grab at a Red Sash infirmary. They are to get the medicine or to destroy it.
  • The party approached the score using deception. One Leech “Deckard” and one Cutter “Brigsby”.
  • Brigsby commanded the guards and doctor to tend to Deckard, who had used subterfuge tools to make himself appear injured.
  • Doctor led them to the back infirmary room, on the way they saw a few rooms without doors, these rooms had medical cots, some filled with injured and groaning foot soldiers. The last room they passed before entering an infirmary room had a heavily reinforced door.
  • They entered the room and the doctor helped Brigsby lead Deckard to a cot. The doctor turned his back to get some medical supplies from a nearby table. Brigsby attempted to sneak up behind the doctor, but the doctor turned and saw him, readying a scalpel. Brigsby incapacitated him, made some noise doing so and using his armor to absorb the blow from the scalpel.The group heard the guard down the hall ask “what’s all that commotion?” and footsteps heading their way.
  • Brigsby pivoted the unconscious doctor into an empty cot and took position near the door. Deckard readied a weapon but kept attempted to look unconscious in his medical cot.
  • The guard was smoking a cigarette and paused a moment before entering the room, gazing out the window in the hallway.
  • Brigsby repositioned himself to the other side of the door, and as the guard walked in Brigsby jumped him. After a brief scuffle, Brigsby took a blow but incapacitated the guard.
  • Deckard found the key from the doctor's body as Brigsby listened at the door. Another guard shouted down the hallway “What's going on down there?”
  • The party moved right for the storeroom door, getting spotted while crossing the hallway. They heard a shout “Hey!” and the guard started running for them.
  • They entered the storeroom and locked the door behind them. The guard started banging on the door, shouting down the hallway “They’re in the storeroom, bring the key!”
  • Brigsby and Deckard looked around the room, seeing shelves of medical bandages and other supplies, there was a locked cabinet against the wall.
  • Brisgby looked for another way out of the room, noticing that the masonry in one corner of the room looked to have been worn away, drip marks led down the wall and a sickly circle spread from the corner of the ceiling.
  • Deckard used the key to open the cabinet and shoveled medicine bottles into a sack.
  • Brisgby used Deckard’s small hammer to remove one of the bricks from the wall, he can see that the entrance to the infirmary is on the other side of the wall.
  • Brigsby and Deckard work together to remove more bricks as the guard continues to pound the door.
  • The pounding stops and the party hears a key entering the door lock from the other side.
  • Brigsby throws his shoulder into the wall, busting his way through.
  • Both men look up as they hear a loud crack. The bottom of a claw-foot tub has sunk through the ceiling. The men leap out of the way as the tub descends.
  • The porcelain shatters and gorey acid splashes and spills, the wood of the medicine shelves dissolving and smoking as the acid spreads around the room. A half-dissolved corpse lays sprawled across the remains of the shattered tub.
  • Both men have acid spotting their clothes and skin from the splash, and they run out the door as the guards navigate around the acid to follow.
