The Road To The Crimson Throne

Seven Days To The Grave: The Beast is The Lair
or The Riddle of The Dreadmanse of Porphyria

Moving to The area of East Shore that is frequented by ladies of ill repute, near the old Derelict House of House Porphyria, The Party stumbles across the Slayer of The Prostitutes and solves one of the major crimes plaguing the city recently. Gentleman Jimmy Gems, it seems had become rather unstable and taken to grabbing ladies of the night off the streets and torturing them in the abandoned guard tower.

He nearly escaped but the party managed to stop him as well as fend off another attack by the Red Mantis in the form of two Martial Artist Assassins who approached as Mimes.

With the danger averted, the party made their way to House Porphyria’s abandoned Manor and after shaking off several haunts, and illusions put there by the Manor House itself solved the riddle of both the Ehrenroods, and who was behind the Fight Club killing Korvosan Guard Officers.

The Ehrenroods were produced by enchanting branches from a tree that is part of the Dreadmanses Grounds. The Dreadmanse it seems was the product of an enchantment placed on the manor to give it pusedo-sentience in order to protect The families of House Porphyria. During the Cousins War, House Arabasti raided the home and killed all they could find of House Porhyria, including the children. This drove the sentience mad and over the years it has gained more and more power so that now it can exert influence over a few hundred yard radius around it.

General Krakon had approached the Manse and recruited it to help undermine the defenses of Korvosa, and promises of restoring the power of House Porphyria.

The party in entering the grounds entered into a moral and ethical discussion with the manse, convincing it that hurting others was no different than what House Arabasti did…and the Manse now views the party as an ally.

Seven Days To The Grave: The Green Market
Seeking out The Spirit of The Shoanti Shaman

The Group, accompanied by the Witch Zeeva Foxglove, attempted to penetrate the wards protecting the Resting place of The Shoanti Shaman Greenheart. Tripping a defensive ward set by some foul priest of Asmodeus, the party unwittingly released a Devil from the netherworlds and had to defeat it. Along the same time several living plant creatures guarding Greenhearts Resting Place came forth to stop those that would defile his tomb.

Victory was certain and the devil was sent back to where he came and the living fungus and foliage Destroyed. A Hellknight Sergeant saw the activity and knighted Kixxiar and welcomed him into the ranks of the Hellknights, and told him to report as soon as he was able to Citadel Vraid for proper induction into the Order of The Nail.

A meeting with The Greenheart shed light on the fact that Castle korvosa was built upon the ancient tomb of The Runelord of Lust, Sorshen, who was interred within with lans to be brought back at an opportune moment. The Slave Race, The Shoanti, freed from their servitude were determined to keep anyone away from The Grand Mastaba. The settlers of Korvosa had defeated the defenders and now years later perhaps The Queen has found ancient artifacts of Thassilon, or worse brought forth the Runelords power….

Escorting Zeeva to The Temple of saranrae, so she could assist in formulating an antidote for Blood Veil, the group moved wearily to into East Shore to look for The Missing Ersta Bedlid, and confronted Malfurin, the Alchemist who told them that Ersta had been coming to him for treatment and recently started working for another person who he doesnt know, in town…..The group thought they saw Ersta and chased her only to lose the traila round the corner…

The group then went to ’Dalliance’s Bordello’ to hunt down Gentleman Jimmy Gems, who has been known to frequent Count Dalarus Arabasti’s red light district…where they ran into the Grey Wardens and Sergeant Niccolo Pinch, lover of Count Delarus. who shared with them after a bit of coercing, that Jimmy Gems has been seen hanging out in the area where the prostitutes have been turning up missing…The East wall. Near The Porhyran Mansion.

The Plague Rats

The party gathers in Thieves Camp where they hold an interrogation of Narris Devane, and after some testy moments he shares who hired him from The Red Mantis and what their goal was. To Kill Zeeva Foxglove, before she could help in the discovery of a cure for the Plague, and as a side mission to enter the Shrine and obtain its treasure. It also came out That They had planned to go to the old dilapidated Porphyria Mansion to get to the reputed treasure out of its hidden vaults.

Narris told them of several of the key players who are involved in the Plague conspiracy and that they all reside together at one location. The Necromancer Rolth, A Vampire Lord named Ramoska Arkminos who is from Ustilav. A Priestess of Urgathoa named Lady Andasin. He talked of a ship that had docked in Ilzamagorti to get the death coffers from The Red Mantis and how it had Chelaxian papers. He also said there was someone within the Nobility of Korvosa that was backing the endeavors…..and of course signs seem to point to General Uril Krakon of exiled House Porhyria.

Narris obtained his freedom with his forthrightness and left out of Thieves Camp heading north.

The group then undertook their original goal of assaulting the Plague Rats Gang in their hide-away in the sewers. A very difficult battle ensued and almost saw the group falling to Girrigz and his followers. But they managed to win the day and they discovered the Wererat gang was well funded ……

From there the group went back to Green market and talked to Zeeva uncovering what she knew about Blood Veil. She agreed to go to the Temple of Saranrae and assist them in developing a cure….but first she would help them penetrate the defenses of the warded Shoanti Shrine,….

The Green Market Part I

The party watched as Carowyn Manor burned to the ground even though the citizens rallied to try and put out the fires, the best they could do was keep it from spreading.

Turning Young Ausio over to A Priest from the Pantheon of The Many, they headed back towards the exit from South Shore, only to find the crowd in front of The Green market turning uglier. A riot was about to ensue as several thugs lead by some sort of arcanist were advancing on Zeeva Foxglove, proprietor and reputed witch.

Coming to her defense the party was suddenly confronted with the fact they were facing members of The Red Mantis Society, Mercenary Assassins who hail from Ilzamagorti. Beating of the attack they manage to capture the Leader Narris Devane and befriend Zeeva,

Heading back to take out the Plague Rats, the band goes to Citadel Volshyeneck first. with the intent of turning over Narris to Field Marshal Kroft. Their plan is thwarted when A squad of Gray Maidens and the newly appointed Plague Doctors of Korvosa arrive and demand to get custody of the Red Mantis Leader as someone who they have suspicions of being involved with those that started the plague.

Some quick thinking and Narris is hustled out invisibly with Gideon on Swiftwing and a different criminal is brought forward as a replacement…Though its easy to see Doctor Davaulus knows this isnt the person, he cannot confront the party about it because how would he explain he knew what the real leader looked like….

Its a Deadman's Party

the party made haste to head to the Carowyn estate in south Shore seeing less signs of the plague heading into this area. They passed The Green Market in south Shore, home of Zeeva Foxglove a reputed practitioner of witchraft, and saw unsettling signs outside the market hall. A rabble was pacing back and forth in front of the entrance bearing signs saying things like ‘Begone Witch’ ‘Witch=Plague’

leaving that for now, they made it to The manor to find many bodies hung up in masquerade, in the trees around the estate.

Entering they found zombies galore all dressed as party goers and still performing macabre tasks such as dancing or looking at fine art.

behind this was an apprentice of Rolth, The Necromancer, who they later identified as Jolistina Suspiro. She dressed as a clown to get access and then proceeded to slay the party attendees with plague tipped crossbow bolts which that had an additional effect of transforming the newly slain to zombies and bearers of the plague. They managed to slay jolistina, destroy the zombies and rescue the lone survivor, a teenager named Ausio Carowyn……and obtained a large sample of this new Zombie plague which was a derivative of Blood Veil

Smugglers at the Zumis Villa

In the Boat taking the kids and Trinia to the meeting point with the horses and Graydon, Kizziar’s friend who had volunteered to help take them to Harse, the party slowly passed beneath The cliffs of the Arkona Estate and then evaded sight of The Korvosan Guard at the Lighthouse across the river, and finally managed to elude the prying eyes of The Gray Wardens patrolling Old korvosa before spotting two Sahuagin coming out of a sewer drain in Old Korvosa. A short fight ensued and the part was victorious. They moved to beach the boat and headed to the rendevous point.

In the air astride Swiftwing, Gideon two evaded being seen by The Korvosan Guard, The Graywardens, and A band of Szcarni heading into the area before being assaulted by two Imps which he hastily dispatched.

At the rendevous point they found instead of the copse of trees and abandoned villa. Some quick thinking and Kizziar said he thought this was The Zumis Estate, Very minor nobles who had fled when the King died.

In their stead a band of entrepeneurs in the form of a Bugbear Ranger named Hieronymous Grunch and his pet dire weasel, Tickletap and finally his followers The Goblin bandit The Snakebiters.

Some forceful negotiations with a bit of violence, left the snakebiters harried and frightened. Grunch gave what information he had and was allowed to leave the estate with his band, who had been part of the chain of smuggled meat into the city backed by someone with a Vudrani accent.

He also said that a family had stumbled upon his men and they had put them upstairs in the villa…This turned out to be a family who had fled Korvosa the day before because of the plague…all of them were in various stages of infection…and one turned out to be Tyler Finch, the courier of East Shore who had brought Marcus Galwatty his Ehrenrood. Tyler, under Aldlara’s care briefly became lucid enough to tell them That he had gotten it from Ersta Bedlid, the leader of The Drudgespades……

Making the family comfortable and leaving some supplies for them, the band finally realized that Aldlara had copied Orsini’s map wrong and had left out crossing the river. The Copse of trees was a short distance away and Trinia joined Graydon and The Gnome Borol with the Soldado Kids and headed to Harse.

The group headed back to the city except Gideon who went searching for signs of Sable Company.

Getting into town they were very fatigued having no rest since the day before and they passed the Temple of Abadar and saw The Paladins of Abadar guarding the temple against the throngs of infected trying to get aid. They could see Dr Ishani working feverishly to try and help who he could..as were several other clerics administering herbal and natural remedies that could forestall symptoms but not a cure.

Then nearing home they found an edict posted to their new neighbors door naming this The Hospice and locale of The Queens Physicians who had been named to dealing with the Plague….any interference with them on their duties would result in death at the hands of The Gray Maidens placed outside as guards.

They could see several of the new Dr’s wearing the birdlike masks like Aldlara had from the wreck of the Direption. Aldlara hastily removed hers….

They got home to find 4 people awaiting them outside. Taking them in one at a time they met Sir Canayven Heidmarch, husband of Maginmar’s Venture Captain. of The Pathfinders who told Aldlara that he had a lead for them about Paracountess Zarta Dralneen, ambassador of Cheliax, was being held at Citadel Vraid , Fortress of The Nail, without the knowledge of the Leadership of The Order. She had been smuggled in by some rogue members of The Order under the pay of General Krakon, who wanted to incite Cheliax into backing his choice of taking the Crimson Throne by force and wanted the level headed ambassador out of the picture. If The group could somehow convince the leadership of The Order of The Nail to let them free her, then she would certainly advise Cheliax to stay out of it officially and General Krakon would not have the backing of his country in his quest for power.

Next Aldalra found a servant girl from The Carowyn Estate who said Zombies had assaulted her masters home the night before and she had been told by Dalton Carowyn to come here for Aldlara’s help. It seems The lords and ladys had locked themselves in the basement and Zombies had taken over the manor.

A Conscientious Ulfen Mercenary told Kizziar that he had quit his job as personal Guard protecting Vendra Loaggri, a local Perfumer who lived atop Citadel Crest near The Academae, had begun to say she had a cure for the Plague and selling her wares to the populace. The Guard knew this to be a falsehood and that she was merely someone trying to get rich off the misfortunes of others. He was also afraid what that might do to stop the belief of legitimate aid. The Perfumer owned The Shop called Lavender.

Finally Jalumm met a young seamstress who once she showed him that she was a Wererat named Eries Yelloweyes, went on tot tell him the tale of how there was a large wererat enclave in town living among the humans in secret…abiding by the towns laws and not seeking any agenda except peaceful coexistence. Should this peace be shattered she feared for the ramifications of what it might do to the already tenuous hold of staving off civil war on the populace….It seems that since rats were known to be carriers of diseases…certain people had begun rat-hunts . In Retaliation, Giriggz, one of the more militant members of The Wererat community sought to seek vengeance by gathering about a dozen wererats and they were planning to begin guerilla strikes against the humans of Korvosa. He called his band The Plaguerats and they were hiding out in a place in the Sewers beneath Old Dock.. She asked that he be stopped before the assault began in the near future.

The group less Gideon discussed this tiredly and agreed to go first to Carowyn manor and then to the sewers this very day.

Meanwhile Gideon returned after finding Signs that Sable Company had taken to hiding in the hills between Citadel Vraid and Korvosa.

He then set to opening the chest they had taken from the toymakers and found some coinage, and a key to a safe deposit box in The Temple of Abadar.

He rejoined the others and they prepared to go to Carowyn Manor for The Deadmans Party…..

Seven Days to The Grave: The Damsel in Distress II
Things that go bump in the night.

The party made their way towards Old Korvosa, noticing at least a few dozen people with the tell tale signs of being infected with the plague before stumbling on a scene of carnage in an alleyway near the toy maker, Giotorri’s shop. They discovered about 20 bodies, some showing the initial signs of being victims of the plague, all being drained of blood.

Of course the cause of this was a band of Vampire Spawn who made mention of ‘The Master’ being pleased that the party was in their grasp. A tough fight ensued and the 7 spawn were slain, their bodies turning gaseous and going into a crack in the alley wall to the Toymakers shop.

Entering and searching not only did they find the toymakers body and the coffins of the Spawn, but a locked strongbox. Gideon stuck the strongbox into his backpack for safe keeping. In addition they found 3 magic items A Ring of Jumping, Pipes of Haunting and a Weapon Sight of Longshot. Destroying the coffins, they went out into the night and di indeed discover Blackjack.,

They received notice that Blackjack had secreted Trina Sabor with an ally of his Vencarlo Orsini. They decided to split up. Jalumm was to return to their base and get the kids. Gideon was to go to Citadel Volshanyek and get Swiftwing and go aerial. Aldlara was to go meet with Vencarlo. Kizziar was to go meet with his Mentor, the gunsmith to see if he would assist them in getting Trinia out of the area. Kizziar, Aldlara, and and Jalumm are to meet back at Orem Menachs abandoned lamp shop and smuggler tunnels beneath.

The plan came together fairly easily with Vencarlo also providing them with 500 gold for operating expenses and directions to a copse of trees about a mile outside of town where he has had hidden a 5 horses and food/water for a trip to Harse to leave her in the care of a Rancher their he knows.

All goes well and the party correctly guesses that Blackjack and Vencarlo are on in the same. Aldlara sends her familiar to Gideon to tell him of the location of the copse of trees where they are to meet and the group in the smugglers tunnels prepare to depart by boat….

or of bargains, sacrifices and portents

when Kizziar and Gideon made their way to The Soldado resident in the now near empty Trails End, they found a worsening Breanna and a now sick Tayce. Aldlara was wearing The plague Doctors Mask, determined not to succumb to the infection. Gideon set to trying to open the lock on the sea chest they found in the Captains Quarters of the Direption, while aldlara and Ishani, The Vudrani Priest of Abadar worked together to try and figure out the disease.

Aldalara found Ishani to be quite different from the run of the mill priests of Abadar, who would do nothing without payment or lawful enticement.. He was quite willing to bend the tenants of his faith to treat the ill through herbal and mundane means; which he insisted, did not go against his churches designs, because they were skills he had not gotten through faith. and so Tayce did not have to pay for them.

It seems he had lost his parents to disease in Vudrani, and boarded one of The Arkona trade vessels and come to Korvosa as a young man and had worked hard to learn how to master treating illnesses on his own. He was affable, if a bit serious. he had left in the wee hours of the morn to return to the Bank of Abadar to attend his duties, promising to return the first chance he had.

Gideon after working for what seemed like hours finally opened the complex lock on the sea chest, but not before triggering a trap which dyed his fingers on his left hand blue from a needle prick. Fortunately his body resisted the poison on the needle.

They found a collection of invoices, ledgers and the deed to the Direption, all written in Vudrani, which seemed strange. From the map in the chest it showed the last port a call was Ilzamagorti on Mediogalti island, home of The Red Mantis. To further add to the intrigue a title naming the owner as one R. Davaulus of Kintargo, Cheliax.

Being in a foreign tongue, they realize it may take days to translate and decipher…

The morning found the Jalumm quite ill and making his way to The temple of Pharasma First, where it seemed they were more interested in trying fo learn of his disease than help him and then to The Temple of Saranrae where he went through a 3 hour interrogation by the temple Priests before being cured of his disease, and having gained an ally in the Temple priests.

Gideon made his way to the Lady Gallifrey to talk to her about the plague and to try and gain access to her husband as the High Priest of Saranrae, and did gain a letter of audience which he put to good use to talk to the high priest and in turn get a single scroll to cure disease, but not before himself sharing some information that announced his working with both Kizziar, who had come visiting his friend who was a Temple guard, and jalumm as agents for the Field Marshal.

Kizziar had gone on a grand sweep of his friends and family in the city sharing his knowledge of a disease which seemed to be rapidly spreading. A few seemed to indicate they were fleeing the city, while a few others seemed to say they were going to hide.

Jalumm followed kizziars example and began to visit people he knew…most notewothy was the young varisian Seer who shared her vision of death coming to Korvosa and that Jalumm was part of the light that was their to stave off the coming darkness.

kizziars Brother who also had some sort of prophetic gifts shared his dreams of the coming of an old evil and how it threatened the lives of all in Korvosa.

Kizziar, and Gideon returned to aldlara and gave her the scroll and after some soul searching The Follower of Calistria healed the young Breanna. tayce saying save her children. The group took the three kids and returned to their abode.

On the way there they found a lot of activity just a few short blocks away from their home as a wagon laden with laboratory gear and medicinals was being unloaded. the newcomers were all of varisian descent, hailing from Ustalav, though a stout woman of Ulfen ancestry seemed to act as bodyguard/second in command. They all seemed to defer to one they called The Doctor, who was friendly, but reserved.

Jalumm in his visiting found out two things that shook him. One was when he went to visit his parents and heard this rhyme on the wind outside their tavern

Their Necks went snap, snap, snap
Their bodies wracked, wracked, wracked
Your meddling gang, gang, gang
Will join the stack, stack, stack

Looking around he saw no one and when he entered, it appeared his parents did not know him saying he and his family, daughter included, had died in a fire long ago…..

The second thing was that the dagger he had gotten from loot taken from deserters in The Field Marshals office was in fact a foul demon-like creature called a lesser rakshasha, a raktavarna…frequently used to spy on people…

Going back to his home he urged his friends to help him destroy the creature, which they only were to happy to do.

Near dark, they decided their next step was to find blackjack and see about escorting Trinia sabor and the children out of korvosa, thus providing a caretaker and saving her in one fell swoop. After dark they head to old korvosa…..

Seven Days to The Grave: Infectious Encounters
or how we learn of diseases and the newest threats to Korvosa's peace

Bravely the group faced off to the Sea Druid Yvicca and her summoned creatures and through teamwork and the healing energies of Aldlara, they managed to win the day.

Bedraggled and tired the group searched the ship, finding a couple strange boxes that had been opened, that carried residual magical energies of Necromancy. They also found a locked chest, and a strange birdlike mask that proved to be a Plague Doctors Mask. Before they opened the sealed chest they spotted the Shoanti leaving en masse from their settlement, Trails End, on the banks of the Jeggare River, and headed towards the small hamlet by the boat they had obtained in Thieves Camp; The Varisian enclave.

as they beached the boat they spooted a priest of Abadar, dressed as a Doctor, hurrying to the Hamlet and met him. Acolyte Ishani Dhatri explained he had been requested by Watch Sgt Grau Soldado to go to Grau’s sisters home in Trails end and tend the illness of his niece, Brienna. They discover that Graus had gone looking for them, after going to the temple of Abadar.

Accompanying the Acoylte, they meet Graus older sister Tayce, a woman who had fallen in love with a Varisian and had three children with the fisherman, before he died in a river accident. She had made her way as a seamstress and washer woman rasiing her kids as best she could.

Brienna had found one of the boxes they had found, on the shore, and this one was unopened. She opened it finding several gold coins. When she came back to her home with the coins, she fill ill shortly thereafter. Tayce had given the coins to a messenger to get help for her daughter.

It didnt take long for the frail child to become very ill at this virulent disease. Aldlara stayed with Ishani, while Kizziar returned the boat, Jalumm headed back to their home not feeling well, and Gideon went to talk to Shoanti contacts.

Gideon found out the Shoanti had discovered the people aboard the vessel were told to bring the boxes to Korvosa and distribute them among the locals. The distribution happened anyway, even with the sinking as some of the boxes washed up in Trails End, Thieves Camp, and Old Korvosa. Not to mention eager treasure seekers had dove down finding a few on the bottom of the river. The Shoanti had told Gideon that death was coming to Korvosa, and if wanted to live he should leave. When Gideon had said he couldnt, The Skoan-Quah member had said to not forget what he was told about The Green Market by Thousand Bones….

Gideon wanted as the remaining Shoanti tribesman fled…

Kizziar discovered that the fisherman he had returned the boat to, had similar symptoms as Brienna Soldado and he admitted to being one of the treasure seekers in the early morning hours….

On the way back to their home, Kizziar ran into Eddie Gin, who came with him…telling them again that Sgt Marcus Galwatty wanted to see them, urgently. Kizziar told Eddie of what he had found out about a diseases that seemed fast spreading, much to the young lads horror, and agreed that Eddie could come to stay with them. When Kizziar and Eddie got back to the base, they found Jalumm already showing the early rash around the eyes of the dieases. kizziar told Jalumm and left immediately to go see the Field Marshal.

Gideon had arrived at the Field Marshal’s already and had talked to her. They had shared information. and she had stressed strongly he meet with Sgt Galwatty, as he had gotten an ehrenrood forcing him to fight and she needed to keep every able bodied guardsman alive, let alone someone with Galwatty’s experience. She also told him that there had been a couple more murders in East Shore and some similar deaths in Old Korvosa. She also mentioned a messenger had brought a sealed scroll tube for Gideon.

Upon opening it he found that a note from Blackjack asked their groups assistance in getting Trinia Sabor out of Korvosa. Gideon kept that one close to his chest when asked by The Field Marshal.

Gideon, Kizziar and eddie gin went to meet Sgt Galwatty at Shoreline Drinkhall and found out that his Ehrenrood had his name and Opie Hardbar’s etched on it in burnt wood., forcing them to fight in 4 days time. sgt Galwatty asked for their help in investigating it, since he didnt have the authority any longer tnad they had authority that even exceeded a Watchouse Captain’s He suggested they look into the following leads-

1. Mona Memy who owns an Inthoso Den in East Shore and is a known bookie on the fights.

2. Tyler Fetch a Varisian Vagrant who does odd jobs for folks and brought the Ehrenrood to Sgt Galwatty.

3. Lt Nodwin d’Aurel, who had been Marcus’ right hand man before the fight club got out of hand, then He had deserted and has not turned up since. he is known to be personal friends with the retired adventurer Sir Albrecht Lunari who frequents Shoreline Drinkhall, where Galwatty met them.

4. Gentleman Jimmy Gems, who had a gambling house that Sgt Galwatty’s men shut down before he was demoted. Jimmy Gems could have an axe to grind. Jimmy Gems has contacts with House Arabasti’s Count Dalarus, who owns a house of ill repute in East Shore

5. Finally- Opie Hardbar has been involved in no less than 3 of the fights that brought about the death of Guard Officers….why does he keep being chosen?

Kizziar, Eddie and Gideon Shoreline Drinkhall and headed back to their place to get some rest…

Jalumm left to search out Malfurin late in the evening and saw Ersta Bedlid leaving his office. He also felt as if he was being watched. Looking around he saw a blind shut on a two story building across the way. Malfurin was very indignant about being bothered late at night, and denied Ersta having been there. He refused to help and was rude overcharging the desperate Jalumm, who, when it appeared he was going to be short to purchase a health restorative, went to offer up the magic dagger he had gotten in the cache of weapons obtained ny the All The Worlds Meat deserters; but found that he just could not let it go ……

Angry, Jalumm left and went to confront the home owner across the way, only to find an old woman who had no idea what he was talking about…..He also retuned back to his base to sleep til morning…

The next moring arrived with any attempts to use mundane means to heal Brienna failing….not only that but Tayce seems to have fallen ill as well……

With one of their own ill and the disease obviously very quick spreading and a host of things that needed attending to, what will the party do?

Seven Days to the Grave: A Ship in The Night
or Strange things are afoot

Returning from the strange events at the ‘hanging’, which turned into something entirely else, the group decided not to do anything right away but just wait until morning to approach Field Marshal Kroft.

In the wee hours of the morning an explosion rocked the night of Korvosa and Gideon, Jalumm and Kizziar went to investigate, Aldlara deciding she would wait until morning…

A ship with one lantern hanging in the window was sinking mid river from multiple strikes of boulders tossed by catapults on the watch towers manned by the Gray Wardens. no move was being made to pull the few crew members from the water, though a few could be seen going ashore in old Korvosa and Trails End.

Gideon flew down on Swiftwing to Trails End and his attempts to secure a crewman was rebuffed by the Sklar-Quah Shoanti Tribesman that had them.

the Guardsman of the Gray Wardens had said they had been ordered to fire on the vessel and sink it. The orders coming from the highest authority….

In the morning, the group had approached The Field Marshal and been told the attempted coup of the monarchy by Sable company had been tuned around and now the remnants of sale Company have fled Korvosa and are in hiding. The Queens forces have occupied The Great Tower.

Blackjack was no wanted for Treason and a search was going on for Trinia and he, but so far nothing was discovered.

The queen also mentioned That demoted Captain Galwatty had been the latest Chelaxian to receive an Ehrenrood calling him out to a deathmatch with a Shoanti Barbarian of known repute, and he was asking for help.

The group decided to meet with Galwatty after they investigated the sunken ship. Even after hearing from Eddie Gin as well That Marcus Galwatty was asking for help…

Obtaining a rowboat they went late in the morning to the vicinity they had seen the ship sinking in and dropped an anchor into the deep river and made their way down into the depths utilizing magicks to allow breathing underwater cast by Aldlara. They lift Aldlara’s friend psuedo-dragon in the boat with their heavier gear while they began to search.

The group became separated in the murky depths of the river and Aldalra came upon the aft section of the ship by chance, where it was brken off from the rest by a large chucnk of undersea rock formation. She began to search around inside, disturbing a nest of silt eels which assaulted her. a few minor wounds later and the next mostly slain, she was startled by Jalumm who had found her and almost gotten himself skewered in hi attempt to make his presence known.

Meanwhile kizziar found the other half of the ship and moved up to one of the holes made by the catapult only to be greeted by a Blue Shark, which closed on him as he swam away. The Shark had come out of the ships hold.

Gideon came to Kizziar’s defense and severely injured the shark, which turned out to be the animal companion of an undersea druid who had come to investigate the ships sinking herself. recognizing her as being a member of the race of Sea Hags that plumbed the ocean depths, they prepared to defend themselves, just as they saw jalumm and Aldlara swim into sight….
