Session 21: Uncertain Insights


Continued from Session 20: Inchoate Questioning

Tor'in woke in the early hours of the morning just before dawn at the tenements in Darin's Folly where Amaro Barden lived. Two thugs had entered the building, looking for someone. Tor'in watched them go upstairs, and then went outside and climbed up and into Amaro's room to warn him. He convinced Amaro to leave out the window. Amaro made a clumsy attempt following the same path down the wall that Tor'in took, and managed not to hurt himself on the way down. Tor'in then lay in wait for the two men. He killed one, and wounded the other, and decided to take him prisoner and bring him to Amos and the others at the Welcome Chill.

Amos healed the prisoner and the party secured him, hidden in a nearby alley while they took up their places around the Welcome Chill. Ren made for the rooftops of the alley behind the tavern. Meriel, Tor'in and Oak went inside posing as patrons while @Amos took station outside to watch for anyone suspicious. Amaro entered the tavern, and waited for his contact.

Although Amos missed the arrival, Oak was on high alert and spotted the stranger arriving. He wore a heavy hooded gray cloak that hid his face from view. But he approached Amaro and after an appropriate code phrase was given, sat down. He paid Amaro, and offered him another job: getting him in touch with Salan Cornys, the leader of the Cornys Crime Family. Amaro was hesitant; he felt that the two visitors this morning were sent by Cornys. The stranger's coin was enough to convince him to try, however. Amaro left, and then when the stranger stood up, he revealed himself to be Allan—or at least someone with the appearance of the dead Lakasis priest.

Tor'in and Meriel began to approach, and Amos called upon Kolrehs to form a magical barrier around their target Allan. Allan lowered his head, and when he raised it again he was Salan Cornys. He attempted to convince some of the fleeing patrons to support him. Some of them who were likely Cornys members themselves turned against the party. Meriel was able to convince most of them it would be a bad idea, including one especially tough-looking dwarven goon.  There were some setbacks, but the party was eventually victorious, and their quarry fell unconscious to the floor. They searched him, and found a number of items: a wedding ring, a necklace with a floral design, a holy symbol of Lakasis, a series of envelopes containing love letters, and several vials of a blue liquid. When searching his pockets, the flipped him over, and revealed the face of Prince Tobias er'Ceasian. Unsure if the Vigilants would be a safe place to go, the party wrapped him up in a rug and made their way to Sana's workshop in the sewers.
