Pathfinder Encounters: Torture Time CR 5

The Torture Chamber where many screams are heard and sobs uttered

I have definitively lived a life full of wanton regret and abandon.  I have stolen from the richest, and the poorest of this wonderful city of Avram.  I have turned my back on the Guild and slaughtered children for a few copper.  My only regret was being caught by the Duke of Avram’s men.  You see, they had heard of me and apparently there was a special order on me for I had stolen the jewel that was to be used as the central setting for his intendeds engagement ring.  I had apparently lifted it from the jewelers Firth and Son.  It ws of utmost importance that I divulge the location of the ring as it had been blessed by the Goddess of Fertility in an important ritual.  I was immediately handed over to the torturer.

I had thought myself the lowest form of life in Avram but the moment I ws locked in the chamber with the rack, iron maiden, furnace and table full of all sorts of devices I wish I could now tell you I had no idea as to the use of.  I was locked in irons in the rack and then I saw him.  He was ogre sized at least I tell you and covered in black wiry hair from the top of his head to the tips of his toes.  He wore a leather apron and smelled of stale sweat, which was amusing because he sweated profusely and I wondered how it ever fell stale being so frequently replaced.  At one stage he had lost sight in one eye from a blade.  He did not hide the fact either, the milky white orb glaring at me all the time.

I knew him only as torturer and never made his acquaintance past that time.  Unusual in a city the size of Avram really.  But I suppose he does not get invited out much, if at all. What I can tell you of him is he loves his job.  So much in fact that he spent a good deal of time torturing me before he even said a word to me.  In between sobs I told him the name of the fence that I had offloaded the gem to and then the blighter tortured me for a much longer time.  I am certain it was for his own enjoyment.  I thought for certain that I would die that day but I was later dumped in the alley behind “Ye Proude Cockerel Inn” where the cook took me in for pity.  

I had survived the torturer and I immediately took any ideas of stealing from the Duke or any member of his family again.  In fact, you would be proud fair bard, I learnt to read just so I could learn the Duke’s genealogy so that I would never have the pleasure of that chamber again.  Mind you, I then had to deal with the beatings from the fence and his men, but that was pure pleasure compared to the time at the hands of the torturer.

The torture chamber is the abode of depraved individuals and of course the torturer who must deal with them!  This is a handy little map to have and the link goes to the standard statistics for the torturer him/herself.  I do like the voice I used in the descriptive text above too so I think next weeks encounter may have something to do with him also!  Keep rolling.
