The Rope

Edgar Bavenport, one of your closest friends, has recently been sentenced to death convicted of murder. You haven’t heard the particulars concerning the case, but from what you have gathered he killed a man in cold blood. Rumours say that the deceased had offended his pride. Normally you are not one to interfere with the judicial system of other homesteads, but you can’t bear the thought of losing your dear friend in such a dishonourable fashion. As a result you consider sending one of your heroes on a rescue mission.
The hanging is two days from now, so it is time to make up your mind.

has anyone had this one? it seems like a straight up battle skills quest to me...

Actually, I don't believe it does require battle skills. Your hero will have to sneak into the prison and get him out of his cell. My hero failed the strength check to lift him out, so I'm not sure what happens after that (there might be a battle).

So strength is definitely needed.

Murder's not legal? ahem... Should be shouldn't it? If you ask old Tuul here I'd say: Stick to utilitarianism! Go for the thing that makes most people happy. In this case free the friendie who done nothing wrong that a good priest can't fix.

I'd say you should send a good strong orc on that one. He'd understand the need for freeing friendie. Don't try with them sticky elfies!

Looks like there more than one storyline to this quest, my orc with 14 in strength, ripped the bars out of the wall. No battle at all.

I had this quest last weekend - forgot to post...

I sent this hero:

Orc
Strength 12
Dexterity 10
Intelligence 7
Leadership 4
Bravery 7
Toughness 9
Swiftness 7
Morale Soaring

10 shields at a level 2.

However, had I picked the best for this quest he would have had 17 shields. Besides strength the hero needs intelligence and leadership I think.

You'll need someone who's able to sneak around to find the guy - and good strength to rip out the prison window.

I scored 18/19 shields on level 1 with a strong orc. He was level 1 then and had the following stats:

Strength 9
Dexterity 8
Intelligence 5
Leadership 4
Bravery 8
Toughness 7
Swiftness 8

It can't be much intelligence you need, but he had very good dex, swi, bra and str... (it's not much help is it - since he had so good stats overall!)

I'm not quite sure why I wrote the hero should have leadership in the previous post - it should have been dexterity. I don't think that swiftness is all that important.

Has anyone had this quest recently? I'm looking for stats of the hero you sent, and the amount of shields...

Had it some months ago:
this orc

Strength 10
Dexterity 7
Intelligence 9
Leadership 7
Bravery 6
Toughness 7
Swiftness 6

scored 10 shields at level 2.
He failed though, apparently wasn't able to figure out a good way to free the prisoner

Thanks Maldoror, I couldn't quite figure out if INT was all that important...

I'm looking forward to our battle on saturday btw!

Nah, I'm thinking about giving this orc a shot on level 3 - he isn't fully healed though, but will be a bit short of 90% HP at departure...

Strength 17
Dexterity 12
Intelligence 12
Leadership 7
Bravery 9
Toughness 12
Swiftness 12

I'm a bit worried about INT, but we'll see - I'll make sure to post the amount of shields.

And Lord Maldoror, I'm afraid chances are your heroes will face Galündel on saturday - strength isn't his biggest virtue, but he has other strings to play...

12 shields on level 3 - I had expected around 14, but it goes to show that it isn't all about STR
