I am 70% sure that bows don’t work very well at close range!
Yes… you should be able to use the book to swat her bow out of the way and maybe deflect the arrow if she releases. Then you can threaten her with the shard of glass before she draws another oh gods who are you kidding she has a WEAPON.
Between panicked sobs you attempt to explain that you have no idea how you got here. You had a little bit of ale at the docks and the next thing you know you woke up naked upstairs in bed with an orc you’ve never met and you think you really made a mess of her room and you’re sorry but please don’t kill me. If that orc was her husband you’re also sorry but you admire her progressive thinking on interspecies marriage and also you have very nice scales and please don’t hurt me I’ll do anything.
Woah woah woah she cuts you off.
She just wanted to make sure you weren’t robbing the place, and she isn’t married to an orc. She admits she feels partially responsible for your predicament, since she was the one who got you that pineapple last night. And it was all pretty much downhill from there, once you did that thing with the yoyo and pineapple. In the town square. In fact, you probably shouldn’t show your face around town for a little while. You’re kind of a big conversation topic right now.
But it’s okay. People won’t remember it forever. In her line of work, she explains, she knows firsthand how quickly you can be forgotten. How did you end up in this town anyway?
You tell her your story, about how you came to Cyrodiil yesterday without any money, thinking you could make friends and get a job and start over from the ground up. But you just messed up everything you tried and at the end of the day you felt so awful that you started drinking again. You’re really sorry and will do whatever you can to pay for the room you trashed.
That’s good, she says. She was already planning to ask if you’d pay for anything you broke. Now, what trade skills do you have and how much damage did you do to the room?
