Session 5

The session begins with Gem putting the two guards in the prison to sleep. The guards are locked in a cell. All of the prisoners are freed to provide a distraction while they escape. A Tiefling prisoner by the name of Farideh offers to keep them hidden until things blow over. She offers to patch up Sako Lume.

The party realizes they are dead broke and decides to take on a bounty. They head the Bergerstein Farmstead to try and collect the bounty on the Orcs who have been attacking. They prepare to ambush the Orcs. The Orcs arrive with some dire wolves and are dispatched handily by the party.

The party collects to the bounty on the Orcs. They visit the local Temple of Ester and meet with Grandmother Petunia. She is unable to assist with the black ichor collected previously. She recommends visiting Bolnast the Seer in the West Ward.

The party meets with Bolnast. Bolnast notices Kriv is a magic user and as he rests his hands on his shoulders he goes into a trance state. His eyes roll back in his head and he speaks in Nim’s voice asking “Kriv are you there?”. At this point Kriv gets a jumble of memories of Nim and his previous friends.

Bolnast offers to help Kriv retrieve his memories further if he helps him retrieve some artifacts. He also offers to study the black ichor which will take two days to see what it is. He will determine if it has value and keep it if it does otherwise the party will need to pay to determine what he has found.

The session opens with Gem sitting in The Ship’s Wheel Inn & Tavern. He is awaiting a visitor. A hooded man approaches Gem’s table and sits down. The man’s name is Kajori and he is a member of the local thieve’s guild. Kajori provides Gem with a map of the prison where his mentor Sako Lume is located. Gem also purchases a set of Thieve’s Tools off of him. He indicated Gem will owe him a favor in the future when he is called upon or he will face death. A man is poisoned in the tavern to prove this point.

At this point we switch over to the rest of the party approaching Varbeck’s city gates in their carriage. They have difficulty convincing the guards to let them in. Odo presents the writ of passage from Mother Alice and the guard being a worshipper of Ester lets them in. The party convinces an old man to bring them to a nice inn. They discuss that they still need to stop at the local larger Temple of Ester and speak with a local Wizard to get further info on the black ooze they found on the “zombie” man. The party stops at the Knight and Dove Inn, they review the bounty board and find a number of notices:

1. A group of bandits have been attacking caravans at the entrance to the city. Capture the bandits alive. 400GP Bring the bandits heads in. 250GP
2. A tribe of Orcs has been attacking some local farmsteads. Kill all the Orcs and bring their heads in. 250GP

The party meets up with Gem and have a heated discussion about them helping him break his mentor out. In that time Gem uses his silver tongue to successfully garner their help.

The party sneaks in through the sewers as a way to gain access to the prison. They dispatch a number of enemies along the way including a Grick. Mac finds a Grick egg and takes it with him. The party finds the entrance to the prison.

Mac changes into a Rat, slips through the sewer grate and out a hole in the stone wall. He runs along the hallway to find a guard on duty. He attempts to get the guard’s attention by drinking from his ale. The guard swipes at the Rat changing Mac back into his true self. The guard is so shocked that Mac gets a surprise round turning into a Black Bear and ripping the head off of the guard killing him.

Odo argues with Gem about when they should proceed. Odo gets frustrated throwing Gem to the ground and ripping the sewer gate out of the stone opening. The party proceeds into the prison. At this time the outside guards come inside hearing the noise from within. One of the guards asks the other to run for help…
