12 July 2015 Session Narrative
Bilarro, Islay and Vera are together and laying low in a safe house in Low Port.
Sprocket is still being upgraded.
After about a day, Bilarro, Islay and Vera found a flat to rent near the Low Port Customs House. It is on the third floor with one window and the front door cannot be locked.
During his process of inscribing the new runes on Sprocket’s plates, William Crane found evidence of a previously powerful enchantment that was poorly covered up.
Meanwhile…in jail, Maxon receives a chicken breast and veggie paste for lunch and Raul gets nutri-loaf. Both are not eating.
On day three, William Crane finds a small slot on Sprocket’s back in between where it’s shoulder blades would be. Sprocket was asked if it knew the slot was there, and it responded it did not. This halted the enchantment so he can consult with his colleagues.
In the Safe House, the three noticed a quite fancy carriage pull up outside. two half-elves and an elderly half-elf get out. A few minutes later there is a knock at the door. The elderly half-elf at the door had labored breathing and he asked for the woman who had him shot. A small fight ensued and the half-elf with labored breathing and one of the bodyguards left, but the other bodyguard got wounded and was left behind and questioned. He stated the labored breathing guy was named Edrio.
At the jail, more chicken/veggies and nutri-loaf for lunch, both Maxon and Raul are still not eating.
Bilarro, Islay and Vera head off for the sewers.
Back at the jail, Maxon’s cell receives a knock. The cell door opens and it is Maxon’s first boss asking why he is jail.
At this point, William Crane returns with a Gnome. It appears that this Gnome has more knowledge/experience with Warforged because he has a bandolier with many tools and a pair of multi-faceted glasses.
Meanwhile…in the sewers, Bilarro, Islay and Vera are waiting a couple of hours, presumably for nightfall.
On day four, Maxon receives pork and veggies for lunch and Raul gets nutri-loaf.
The Gnome worked all night on Sprocket and discovered a few interesting things. The previous runes were marred, broken and then covered over. But the most interesting thing is the slot in Sprocket’s back. It is a slot for a Docent. It is an augmentation by an intelligent magical item, but when this particular docent was removed it reset Sprocket back to factory settings. To know any more, the docent should be found, but with gem-dust found at the bottom of the slot is a bad sign that the it might be damaged or destroyed.
At the Camorine Estate during the breakfast hour, Bilarro, Islay and Vera ponder if Edrio is working for or knows the Red Queen and if he can send a message arrow to the Chief Justice…but the only thing Camorine says the best thing to do is to get Vera somewhere where she can do the least amount of damage.
In Raul’s cell, the Assistant Chief Justice Balmer sets down a table with two chairs and uncovered a plate with an assortment of meats and cheeses. Balmer begins questioning Raul about Vera. At the end of Raul’s questioning, Maxon sees through his open cell door walking down the hall with Balmer.
Meanwhile…in the sewer, Bilarro,Islay and Vera were arguing loud enough for Raul to hear. Vera noticed a human female noticing Raul reacting to Bilarro, Islay and Vera arguing. Islay mentions the tail and motions there are four more and they go further into the sewers.
Back in the jail, Maxon’s old boss tells him there is a witness to what Vera did, Edrio, and he has a lieutenant in the prison. The plan is to have Maxon moved to general population to give him an opportunity to get his hands on him.
A couple of hours later in the sewers, they are in the only clean area and cannot find out where they are going but they were able to find a very finely dressed corpse bearing the sigil of House Idald. The body appears to be eviscerated after a protracted battle by a light weapon, perhaps a rapier.
At this point, Maxon has been moved to General Population and he found the half-elf he was looking for, Gibbin. Gibbin was pointed out to Maxon within a group of other half-elves.
Sprocket is still being worked on and the three in the sewers are very lost after wandering around for six hours.
