11 Oct 2015 Session Narrative.
On the second floor of the warehouse was a disease cauldron, and the sigils/engravings on the cauldron were related to the Red Queen.
The Party headed out to the Cathedral of St. Cuthbert to ask about the cauldron. Once there, we asked Brother Samuel, the Chief Justicator what we saw and that the cauldron was tipped over. Brother Samuel raised the call to arms for his other brothers and headed out to the warehouse.
The Party returned to the warehouse to a fracas between the cops and the justicators. We avoided the fracas and headed upstairs. After some searching, we found a morhrg’s tongue under the floorboards…and it began to sizzle.
We took the tongue to the Archivist Casmeritine.
We headed to Sven’s to question him about the Red Queen, and unfortunately, he said he doesn’t know the Red Queen. Maxon arrested him. As we left Sven’s, the Royal Guard arrived and set up a perimeter as Prince Archidime’s carriage arrives. The Prince and Camorine both exit the carriage.
We explained that we were not successful on the location of the Red Queen, so the Prince orders everyone to Angel’s Spire dungeon to question Sven in a more appropriate location. Weirdly, Sven gets to ride in the carriage.
Once Sven is in the dungeon and strapped to a table we explained what happened from Maxon’s and Bilarro’s point of view while Sven has something that looks like a scarab beetle on his forehead. It appears to cause great pain if the person wearing the beetle is lying. Sven was asked for the other locations of the Red Queen’s warehouses. He answered in Aslay, Yara, Fairville, Oberdale and Village Apesh and how to get in touch. There is a weekly incantation, and the ingredients change weekly. This week’s ingredients are Coffin ash and sea water…but this has to be done from Sven’s office.
In Village Apesh, Lawdria gave Sven a bunch of gold to provide the Red Queen with a supply of young girls.
The Party returns to Sven’s office to perform the incantation. An image in the mirror behind Sven’s desk shows a startled Lord Damien Fortroy just as he pulls a mask over his face.
