Framing the Fey
For the Jailbreak I think we can use the fey creatures being there as cover for the Jail Break. We can be sure to leave pixie dust behind.
We don the same disguise that Eve did such an amazing job with.
The majority of the nine will be part of the distraction with the dogs. If you are seen out there, you are just trying to help deal with the dogs, maybe even drop the suggestion that the fey must have got them all riled up.
Those of us actually going into the guard post:
I’m going because this was my idea. Bordane are you?
Eden for sure and Griffith. Anyone else?
For entry into the guard post, I suggest a shitload of smokesticks to add to the confusion, limit how much is seen. The guards inside we will hopefully KO and take their keys.
I mentioned last night that I wouldn’t free the fey. On second thought I stick with the original idea and free everyone. We leave pixie dust behind and make our escape
Briar should be flying overhead, when we leave we will follow the route she takes, hopefully leading us away from anyone coming on whatever streets, telling us when to duck for cover etc.
We take the former prisoner to our sometimes flooded beach house for a place to hide and we try to convert him as an ally of our company, providing us with an Oghma worshipper that isn’t one of the sages and whom we have no reason currently to believe has any connection to the Cult of the Dragon.
If converted, we help set him up outside of Waterdeep, explaining a year away is better than 20 in a jail. A year from now he can come back as Cousin Fred.
If not converted we leave him to his own devices (as long as he doesn’t get TOO lippy) and wish him well.
