27 May 2018 Session Narrative.
The Gambit was stolen by Andholm’s father and Ramsey’s Rock outside Lanterum was moved or lifted due to the signs of a battle and the evidence of a lot of horses. Though, Raul and Maxon would be the only two would know that Ramsey’s Rock was lifted or moved.
We sent Prince Elias a message that we are on our way, but we should beat them to Lanterum.
At Lanterum’s North River Gate, it was open with no City Guards on the parapets and after we disembarked from the barge, the streets to the Noble District were empty. Since the city has been attacked a number times in the past, the city residence know what to do by leaving the streets clear so the city guard have the room they need to do their jobs.
As we arrive at the Noble District, the gates open at the sign of Fortroy’s crest on the side of the carriage. As we enter Fortroy’s castle, the castle guards donning magical weapons and good armor placed the group under arrest for crimes against the Crown. As we were lead to the dungeon, the doors to the throne room open to show the King Valerian Archidiem on the other side.
Once inside the cell, the whole group has free movement.
There is a door at the bottom of a set of stairs that lead to the lower part of the dungeon, and the sounds of whimpers and cries can be heard when the door opens. Islay, when investigating, can get about 10 paces before he gets too far from Bilarro. It would seem the first daughter; Gladia is the one making the sounds from the lower basement.
The next guard arrives for his shift. He brings us a meal and we talk about the attack on the Fortroy estate and they were told to kill everything.
The next morning, the dayshift guard, Jansen, arrives and sits down and starts reading. The first book is about ‘The War Among The Leaves’ from an Elven point of view and the second’s the same, but from an Axonian point of view.
Some time, around noon, a man in fancy robes entered the dungeon to tell the guard that we are to be held until dinner and then to be released to House Vortal.
The two guards that left the dungeon return to the basement just as James Vortal arrives to release us into his house’s custody.
Upon being released, the group and James Vortal head to the Blades office. Once there, Venchia states the League Of Independent Noblemen contacted the Blades to help investigate the attack/battle at Ramsey’s Rock. Then, James Vortal looks like he has rippling water on the side of his neck and then transforms from James into it’s natural form…a changeling, Tyrus. The deception was necessary to confirm Fortroy’s story.
As we look for Daemon Fortroy’s carriage, the tracking device indicates it is south of the city…and we are at the docks, on the southern most end of the city.
Raul, at the Temple of St. Cuthbert meets with Kazzmeritine and the lead cleric, Brother Ferdinand.
Outside the temple, the * arrives to take us to Bridgeton where there are reports of an undead army is amassing under the city. In route, a plan was devised to enter the city through a disused sewer. Sprocket’s role in the plan is to drop from * into the river, walk along the bottom and force open the gate at the opening of the sewer to let the rest of the party in.
After getting the gate open, the party makes their way into the bowels of the sewer and into a fight with three Otyughs (I think – Chad)
