The Ruinlords Present Curse of the Crimson Throne

Session 23
Kuthona 6th, 4707

The session begins in the Amor residence with Tommy running into Portia’s room.  There he excitedly explains that its snowing.  He continues how cool it is that he is able to go play in it because for once he has clothes to wear.  

Next at Eel’s End Nifling calls for a meeting.  Straxus is tasked with ensuring that any scavengers of the plague ship regret their intent.  Karsk is tasked with looking out for king.  And the Pyro is told to put a pin in the idea of burning the grey maidens. The conversation moves to Volka and Straxus where she refuses Straxus’s request to inform his mother that he is dead.  She says that he can tell her or Volka will.  Straxus acquiesces and lets her know that he would attempt to visit her in the evening.  

We move then to Mallory at the temple of Saenra where he looks around at the coming and going of people only to find that the bad weather has kinda stimmed it.  Mallory begins working on a potion.

Focus shifts to Portia as they watch Tommy play in the garden.  They think on how odd it is that Tommy is so excited about warm cloths for the winter and they contemplate its meaning.

Focus shifts to Harsk and Vidar.  They begin preparations to work the Bullette Plates.Vidar assists where he can and then makes his way to Portia’s.

Portia is met by an older a guards uniform.  He asks if she knows the field marshal.  The man is there seeking help for his niece who is sick.  Portia explains that she might know of someone who can help the man instead of seeking aid at the Temple of Abadar.  As she speaks to him she see’s Vidar making his way to the Amor residence.  The guard is Fuldado Groul.  A watch sergeant with the guard.  Portia invites them in.  Groul speaks about Straxus.  We also find out that Rossy is ill as well.  Portia asks if Vidar could fetch Mallory.  Groul apologizes about his use of superlatives and then takes his leave with Vidar heading to the Citadel. 

Mallory fails his potion and makes his way to the Citadel to work and seek aid from Portia’s aunt  - Falstina – in regards to potion making.  Falstina is found hovering around those who are ill who have been quarantined from others due to the inability to heal the malady.  Mallory inquires if there are any updates on the illness and she explains that it is a very fine creation.  It is known now that it is very resistant to most magics.  Falstina explains that the red spots seem to be a form of Decay.  They have splotchy red rashes that people are scratching til they bleed.  They move to speak to Rossy to answer any questions?  Rossy first explains he feels Hot in the head.  He can’t keep any food down.  States it taste like ashe.  As Mallory is working, the focus shifts back to Vidar and Groul.  He explains many things have changed.  Promotions to those who are loyal to the queen, and he is not enjoying the new changes. Vidar points out Mallory to Groul.  He then vouches for his character.  Groul implores Mallory for aid for his neice who is ill with the strange illness.  Mallory agree’s to follow Groul and Vidar offers to follow.  

Focus shifts to Volka and Straxus who are mostly going through the motions.  Straxus notices that a few people are begining to be sick and relays that to Volka.  Volka and Straxus decide to make their way to Portia’s.  Once there they find Tommy playing with the help while Portia and Anders are inside.  There Straxus has the idea to see if Majenko could locate Vidar and Mallory.  After some smooth talking Majenko agrees.  After Majenko agrees Straxus moves outside to cut wood while Portia and Volka talk of things going on.  Volka seeks Portia’s library.  Straxus makes his way outside to cut wood for Portia and runs into Valentine and Tommy roughhousing.  He breaks it up and talks with the kids abit.  At the end he lets the kids off to go play but not before dropping an icicle down Valentines Shirt.  

Things go to Vidar and Mallory as they travel to Trail’s End.  There Majenko meets up with Vidar and relays that the party wishes to meet up.  Vidar insults him about being fat.  Then Mallory introduces himself.  

Majenko finaly returns explaining that Vidar and Mallory are heading to Trails End.  Portia, Straxus, and Volka decide to meet them there.  While they are en route Vidar and Mallory make their way there and get to the North Bridge.  There Mallory’s curse enacts making a crude lie about the queen's dress, however the Maidens ignore the remark and they make their way on.  Once at Trails end they come to what can only be called a worse slum than old Korvosa.  Much of the area is ramshackle and …. Temporary.  Mallory makes his way to the house in question to seek Soldado’s Niece.  She is a poor woman and looks lean.  There are two children playing in the livingroom and above the sound of a soft coughing.  In the kitchen is an acolyte of Abadar.  He is currently brewing something with cinnamon and anise seed. Mallory introduces himself and looks at what the acolyte is brewing.  He claims it is a healing potion.  Mallory inspects and doesn’t seem to see to agree. Mallory inquires if others are in contact with the child who is ill.  She denies that the other children have gone near her.  She takes them upstairs and they see a bedroom loft with a young girl in one of the three beds.  Very slight and small, she has many of the red rashes that have been seen around.  She groans and moves uncomfortably constantly.  And coughs violently. She has been ill for a few days.  Mallory begins to recall his medical and magical training to see if he can ascertain anything about the child's illness and only comes up with little more than what is already known, however it is clear the child is an advanced case.  Vidar asks if Brianna plays near the water often but Tayce says no more than others.  She says that the children have been to the city to do a little begging.  Tayce also says that none of Brianna’s friends have become ill as well.  She was buying solstice gifts for her family after getting some good coin from begging.  Tayce explains that she sleeps downstairs by herself on the floor and the girl was attempting to get blankets and such for her family.  Brianna was already sick when the plague ship was downed.  After much discussion, Volka pays for a casting of remove disease after requesting that Tayce act as an informant in Trail’s end.  She agrees.  

Tayce – Soldado’s sister

Brianna – Soldado’s Niece – 7 years old

Session 22
Kuthona 5th, 4707

The game begins with the parties majority in the morning.  With Portia and Trinia sleeping in the carriage and Volka and the men outside.  Vidar wakes first and begins to tend to the camp.  Volka and Mallory wake and discuss how things are going.  Vidar field dresses the horse for breakfast.  Volka apologizes for the loss of horses.  As Straxus arrives they begin talking on the plan.  Finally it is decided that the party will push the wagon to Trots.  There Straxus asks Volka to acquire a saw.  They have a discussion and it is found that Mallory can simply make them.  The party breaks with Straxus and Volka leaving and The rest of the party making their way into the tavern.  

The group meets Jason the would be sarroget of Trinia.  There Vidar gives him the 6th degree on who and what he is and his intentions of Trinia.  They find he is a ranch and that his plans are to train trinia in riding.  Once finished they take drinks.  Then at the end Jason Adreal stands and tells Trinia to say her goodbyes.  She gives Vidar many thank yous for all his time spent with her and he reciprocates.

Volka sits in the woods with Straxus performing the deed.  30 painful min go by while Volka helps straxus.  Then She finally asks.  Straxus explains his anger at Tito, and most other humans.  Straxus explains that he realizes now that the straight and narrow doesn’t get anything done.  Straxus now believes that the only way to turn things around is to get his hands dirty.  He asks Volka to get a cast of his horns though not why.  Then Volka thanks him for joining her in the darkness to do what is right.  

Volka returns to the Town and seeks out Vencarlo.  She explains that Straxus is seeking Black Jack.  Volka gets the idea that Straxus may be seeking to fix the city from the shadows.  Vencarlo explains that Black Jack was an act of nessessity.  That it was done so he could help people without damaging his name.  He suggests that if Straxus is truely cutting all ties. He simply needs to begin helping those around them.  Vencarlo explains that he is leaving them to go on ahead to keep appearances.  

While in town Mallory’s curse inacts again and an older man demands to know what the halfling said about his mother.  The man accosts Mallory.  Portia attempts to help by talking the man down.  Then Mallory asks about potions kinda drunkenly.  Its kinda strange.

Once back in Korvosa, Vidar and Volka make their way to Ironhand Armory to deliever the Bulette plates.  Harsk can’t believe his eyes.  Then Volka introduces Vidar to Harsk.  Harsk demands to craft it to full plate.  He also offers to make armor for Portia and Mallory.  They continue to talk about adventuring.  He asks if Portia is skilled in enchantment.  She declines.  Volka asks if Vidar would like to remain and help Harsk in crafting the armor.  Vidar flatters Harsk and he beems.  

Mallory returns to the temple with his cauldron and then finds that there is a particular nasty strand of flu going around.  He does his best to help those seeking aid from the temple and then makes his way back to the cauldron to brew a potion.

Straxus makes his way to Eel’s End where he is put under Rost’s command.  He is given the task to find and watch “The King”, a thug on the docks in Old Korvosa.  Straxus makes his way to the alleys and begins his task

Portia returns home and is greeted happily by her family and Majenko.  She explains that the adventure was pretty tame and things went well.  They talk about desert and tommy explains that he is working hard on swords and …..  Portia decides to drop it for now.  They eat cake. 

Vidar goes to the citadel.  There he requests a meeting with Kressida.  He is asked if he has an appointment and Vidar simply requests a personal meeting.  Vidar asks if she be told that “The North Man” needs to see her and is accepted.  The door is closed and Kressida listens to it to see if they are ‘alone’.  She explains that the HellKnights are transitioning out of the city.  Vidar then seeks from Croft if there is a severance pay.  He explains that he is poor and homeless and in need of funds to get afloat.  She offers her own money and calls it an order for the sake of Vidar’s pride.  She demands he takes it forcibly.  And so he agrees.  Vidar leaves beaming.  

The next morning, Tommy rushes to wake Portia telling her about how Pirates were sunk in the River.  He says that a guard tower sunk the ship in the River.  During the meeting with the enforcers and Volka they talk of a haunted ship in the River.  Volka gathers Straxus.  Mallory is working at the Citadel.  He heard the shots the night before.  As he is eating he hears rumors that the guards shot down a pirate ship from riddle port trying to sneak into the city.

Session 21
Kuthona 3rd, 4707

The party starts by disguising Trinia.  Portia requests Vidar gather the goods but is turned down.  

Trinia is going to Trots so she can make it to Harse however the party will not be accompanying her after Trots.  

Volka makes her way to Lily.  There he shows her the gold.  Lily lets her in.  She explains her situation to Volka, about the children and the money.  She explains tito.  Volka suggests she take the money to leave the city.  She also suggests that should Lily ever need any help and have no one else to turn to come to eels end.  

Back at Orisini academy Straxus begins to look over the carriage for a place to hide.  Then Mallory offers that Straxus should move ahead and meet the party on the road.  So Straxus does.  With many successful skill checks he does make it out of the city.  

Volka returns to the Academy and asks to speak with Vidar.  There she asks him to calm down on Straxus.  Vidar explains that he is in the fact that he has not turned Straxus in.  Volka trys to convey that Straxus is deserving of some (Pity)  But Vidar explains that he will tolerate Straxus but until he makes amends he will do nothing more.  Volka concedes. 

Mallory is found with Portia and Trinia speaking to her about her art.  Finding interest in one Trinia offers to leave him one that he enjoys.  She says it is payment for helping her.  

The group gathers and they prepare to leave.  Mallory and Volka enter the wagon.  Trinia is dubbed Peg, a boring and quiet maid of Portia.  She and Portia enter the wagon aswell and Vidar offers to remain outside with Vencarlo.  Then Vidar and Trinia begin flirting again.  They make their way to the docks to gather the goods.  No riots and streets are calm.  People talk of the execution and the queens new guard as well as Straxus’s breakout.  They make it to the docks warehouse.  Portia handles the gathering of the goods.  It takes 30 min to load the carriage.  Volka and Vencarlo talk of revolution.

As the party makes their way to the bridge Mallory’s curse enacts causing one of the Grey Maidens to take notice.  She assails him condemning him for speaking ill of the Queen.  She accosts him, eventually kicking him before moving on.  Volka praises Mallory for distracting the maiden from pearing in the carriage.  Then the party moves off and meets up with Straxus.  Trinia then pulls an instrument and begins playing.

Trinia asks of Volka being taken or at least pretty in the eyes of other Dwarves.  Then the conversation continues to others love interests.  They find that Vencarlo does like Kroft.  We find that she is an accomplished adventurer who even fought at Belkazin.

En Route to Trots the party continues conversations about who and what.  Volka fails to find if Straxus has a love interest.  Straxus then inquires how Mallory knows him speaking of how Straxus used to protect the children he used to grow up with.  They talk of the king's death and then Straxus brings up that Trinia may need to pursue alternate means of living.  While travelling the party then encounters a trio of hippogriff.  Straxus remains behind after downing the Hippogriffs to attempt to convert it to his animal companion.  The party presses on only to encounter a landshark.  It quickly dispatches the horses but finds the party a much tougher meal and dies to Vencarlo’s blade in the end.

Session 20
Kuthona 3rd, 4707

A week had passed since the failed execution of Trinia.  The periodicals speak of the guards failures, and how Blackjack is a true villain.  Others paint another picture painting Blackjack as a hero.

Vidar during his week of downtime checked in with Straxus and Cressida post failed execution and then spent time training Mallory and possibly Trinia in swordsplay.  Vidar also curbed his tutoring in a way to emphasize Mallorys skills.  Vidar also coined the nickname cadet Patoot.

Mallory would train as hard as he could under Vidar’s tutorlage during his week.  Also he spent time trying to speak with Volka.  Beyond training his time is spent at the Citadel performing healing tasks.  During training there are some occasional mishaps including farting at strange times, 

Portia spent some of her time to work with Anders to try and get business up and flowing again.  By the end of the week the rest of the children had been placed.  Leaving only Tommy as the sole child in the house.  

Volka spent the week moving things into her new base of operations.  And looking for any return on the bounty for information on the Shoanti’s killer. 

The game begins in the middle of the day at Portia’s House.  Straxus and Tommy sit in the living room going over the finer points of bow care.  Vidar and Volka are playign a board game, and Portia and Anders are talking.  Tommy looks to Straxus as he works and Straxus feels the need to throw the harrow.  As time continues the need intensifies.  And so a Harrowing begins.

Loved ones lost, stolen by the darkness…The darkness ensconced safely, protected. You must stop it, it can be stopped but if you do not….the entire. city. will be….crushed

As the harrowing ends it leaves Straxus confused and not remembering what transpired.  Portia then asks what the plan was next.  However there doesn’t seem to be one.  As the party talks there is a hurried knock at the door.  There looking for the party is Cressida.  There she explains the Sable Company has been disbanded and Straxus and Vidar have been fired from the guard.  Straxus, angered, throws his badge to the table and storms out.  They continue to talk about how Vencarlo wants to move Trinia out of the city for her safety.  Volka recenters the party demanding that with or without titles they must continue to act as heros to thwart whatever evil was prophesied.  Cressida tells of her time as an adventurer and how she still sees them as friends.  She moves to leave and Vidar intercepts to hug her.  

Straxus makes his way to the Shingles and there begins to “Hunt” Tito.  Waiting til he is behind a few drinks he tracks him to his home and then confronts him.  The fight continues almost taking them both before Volka, Mallory, and two grey maidens enter the scene.  The fight is over and Straxus and Tito give up the bout.  They are taken to the Citadel and incarcerated

Vidar visits with Vencarlo and Trinia.  Then Vidar moves to drink.

Volka and Mallory make their way to Eel’s End.  Volka commands the lt.’s to come.  There we meet with Krask and Jean Claude, Violet, and Kole.  For an emergency meeting.  

Session 19
Neth 26th, 4707

The party begins at the Citadel as a tiny halfling seeks the temple to his god saenrea.  There he takes on the roll of a guard and is sent to seek sean the cleric.  Straxus bails him out after receiving healing. They exchange a few words about how Straxus is….. Famous?”  Then Straxus heads out toward Portia's with the halfling trailing behind him.

The vantage shifts to Vidar who wakes Trinia early and discusses the beauty of a sunrise.  They make their way to breakfast where Trinia confesses her feelings about the execution of someone in her stead.  They embraces and we talk about beards.

Vantage shifts to Volka at Eel’s end where she speaks to Roth (was afk)

Things shift back to Straxus and Mallory as Vidar arrives.  Vidar inquires about Mallory who just joined the guard.  Straxus agrees to meet up at Portia’s then take Mallory to The Temple.  Vidar cracks a joke about Straxus being hellspawn which bristles Straxus.  They part ways and Straxus and Mallory head to Portia's.  Once there they meet Tommy at the door.  Straxus gives him a nuggy and then they make their way to the kitchen.  Straxus introduces Mallory to Portia and then gathers Tommy for a trip to the temple.

Things shift back to Vidar who makes his way to Crofts office who finds herself with a little sleep under her belt.  Vidar asks that Mallory joins the group, and then goes into a report on the goings on in the Gray.  Croft agrees to adding Mallory to the squad.  She believes that Roth is still a problem.  She agrees the evidence should go to the party.  She requests that they keep an eye out for more strange necromantic goings on.  Determines that the Derro is an apprentice of Roths.  The Derro had an item (Robe of Bone) of a sinister nature.  The evidence is turned over to Vidar.  She also got an Imp from the Amor household about a specialist in necromancy.  

Session 18
Neth 25th, 4707

After subduing the Derro wizard, we find a thrashing torso and arm that appears to belong to the Shoanti boy we are tasked with recovering. Vidar goes and collects his remaining body parts from throughout the dungeon, while Volka and Portia search the rooms the wizard had been found. They find several personal items, which are added to the pile of evidence collected throughout the catacombs. Portia and friends reassemble the boy using magic and sewing supplies. They then head back to the alchemy room where all the former prisoners have been moved to, and open the final door. Vidar throws the door open to find some sort of undead monster, exuding some horrid stench, and holding the other arm of the child. Volka runs around it to trap it between herself and Vidar, upon which it smacks her with the boy’s arm.
The stench pours out of the room and the creature, nauseating Vidar and Portia for several seconds (so far, ugh). The carrion construct was vanquished by the heroes, Vidar and Portia sewed on the last arm of the boy’s corpse, all while Volka searched the room the creature had been in. Portia examined the creature’s spellbook and found no sort of illusion magic it could use to mask its identity, instead finding a name: Vreeg. The adventurers decided to take the captive Derro and the former prisoners back to the Citadel. Roth (Rolth? whatever) Lamm was nowhere to be found. On the way out, the acid trap activated once more, but luckily only Straxus, Portia, and Volka were harmed, and then only lightly. They escape into the fresh air of the Gray, Vidar releasing the citizens after taking down their names and addresses.
The party return to the Citadel, Vidar carrying the boy’s corpse wrapped up in sheets, Straxus carrying the unconscious Vreeg, and Volka carrying the sack of evidence. Rossi is flustered at Portia’s injured state and mothers her for a bit while the others go up to inform the Field Marshall of their progress. The Derro is imprisoned and the corpse brought down to Sean the cleric. The group reassembles once more to brief the Field Marshall.
Kroft shows the group a flyer/missive advertising the execution of Trinia Sabor the following evening. Kroft confirms that the real Trinia Sabor is still with Vencarlo safely, so the execution is some sort of spectacle being put on to satisfy the public’s lust for blood, we presume. Kroft asks us to go to observe, to keep an eye out for anything “out of sorts” and to contain any potential riot should something happen. Otherwise it is a purely surveillance mission.
Vidar has a nice conversation with Trinia, ensuring she’s ok and that she will continue to be.
Portia attempts to settle a dispute between Tommy and Anders before going for a bath.
Volka remains with the Field Marshall until Thousand Bones comes for his grandson’s body. She asks to enact revenge on the one who did this to his grandson, and I believe he accepts sorta maybe? She promises that everyone will know it was Nifling and not the Shoanti so they don't begin a cycle of violence and feuding that will cause more destruction than satisfaction.

Session 17
Neth 25th, 4707

The party starts in the lab discussing its contents.  The party continues down the less trodden path to enter combat with some pit warden of sorts.  After defeating the Warden, the party begins to ask questions of his captives.  They find out that all but one were abducted in some fashion, but one was actually convinced to come by what we assume to be the necromancer to do some experiments.  Vidar keys his questions to the guy getting little.  The party assists the prisoners back to the Alchemy room and assists them to fortifying it then they make their way back to the tunnels where the come across a very macabra surgeons room where there appears to be a strange amalgamation of a humanoid build of many parts.  The part moves south to find a library of sorts containing a lot of books on necromancy and golem creation.  Volka presses down to the alchemy room through a secret passage and then the party moves north to what is a bedroom containing another Derro and some sort of slow, jerky moving humanoid.  There they encounter a skeleton, zombie, and some sort of necromancer derro.  As combat continues The Derro moves to flee and the party chases back into the strange surgeon room.  The battle continues with the little wizard into the library room as he continued to flee and cast on the party.  Finally with a deft grapple from Volka, Straxus was able to non-lethally subdue the Derro.

Session 16
Neth 25th, 4707

The party finds themselves still in the catacombs beneith the Potters Ward in The Grey, having just slain skeletons and in combat with Derro. The fight continues as Straxus downs two of the Derro and one of the stirges that had attatched itself to Vidar’s beard.  As combat ends Vidar reprimands Straxus for his reckless shot.  Straxus accepts the reprimand and requests his orders.  He is told to hold the back and guard against suprise.  The party moves into a mudhole in the tunnels holding an Otugyh.  Combat begins.  Combat ends swiftly and the party searchs the pile of corpses to find a pair of legs that appear to be Shoanti native to the area and of similar age to the boy that died.  The party continues on to a trapped hallway.  Straxus moves in to try and disable however in the attempt the trap triggers spraying straxus with acid as two bone snakes with human skulls drop from the ceiling.  Straxus dips out of the hall and alerts the party to the guardians of the hall.  The party begins to fight it through the hallway.  Vidar drops his massive earthbreaker on the creature and then Straxus follows up with a blunt arrow killing it.  The second necro snake thing crawls up to Vidar and strikes him.  Vidar fights off the paralysis and drops the hammer on it aswell.  Combat ends.  The party makes their way down the hall into another room filled with alchemical reagents and a derro trying to clean the room.  Vidar enters the room and intimidates the creature.  Combat begins.  Party swarms the Derro and Vidar finishes it with an Aoo.  As the party enters the room they find many items.  Session ends by Vidar advising that taking anything from the room is technically tampering with evidence and against the law.

Session 15
Neth 25th, 4707

As the party makes their way to the Gray the come across more and more Shoanti.  The anger at the injustice plain on their face.  Once in the Gray the party makes their way to the Grand Cathedral of Pharasma.  Vidar gathers the attentions of a priest and leads him away from the main area.  The party purchases potions for the trip and then Vidar asks about the specific image that they are seeking. 

The party makes their way from the church to the mausoleum.  Straxus looks about to find tracks of a wheelbarrow and human tracks heading into the mausoleum and a large amount of “small” tracks.   As they look about Straxus finds a trapdoor behind the gargoyle.  Portia opens the hatch with a spell and then drops a rock down the shaft with light cast on it.  Vidar makes his way down the shaft followed by Straxus and Portia.  They make their way into a crypt and as Straxus advises the party to come in.  As they do skeletons rise from bone pits to acost the party.  A single owlbear skeleton from the east and four skeletons from the west.

The Party completes the combat with the skeletons and Straxus makes his way forward further into the catacombs as the group continues to look about the crypt.  As Straxus is scouting ahead he kicks a rock down the tunnel alerting a nearby enemy of their presence.  The creature comes up and casts some sort of magic at Straxus doing some sort of sonic damage.  Straxus turns back and runs alerting also the bugs feeding on a corpse to the party.  As Straxus returns to the tunnel split he sees into the darkness and a small creature comes up behind Portia hitting with a crossbow.  As volka turns the corner finds out they are fighting a Derro.  Straxus pushes past the darkness to find the Derro lair.  There he finds a maze as a rat pops its head up over.  Straxus fires an arrow and kills it, because Fuck a rat.

Session 14
Neth 24rd, 4707

The party starts at Portia’s where they talk over a few things.  Portia helps to make Triana at home.  Vidar takes a bath and then has a conversation with Tommy.  Tommy allows Vidar to join his “Crew” and then moves to “patrol” the house.  Vidar then gives Tommy a mission to find out who wants who dead the most in Midland.

Straxus makes his way to Orisini Academy to speak with Vancarlo.  Once there he is met by a student who guards himself against the demon threat.  Straxus hands over his badge and a few less than pleasantries.  The student fetches Vancarlo.  He comes back with Vancarlo.  Straxus and Vancarlo go to a sitting room to speak of the developments with Trinia.  Straxus advises that they should make their way to the Amor residence.  They make their way to the carriage that Vancarlo owns and he hitches it himself talking of how he is capable despite his lofty position.  

Straxus and Vancarlo make their way to the Amor residence and meet with Vidar.  They exchange orders with Vidar about moving Trinia to Orsini Academy.  Vidar gathers her and Straxus speaks to Portia.  Then he goes off to check on Tommy.  He finds that Tommy is not in his bed but after speaking to Jeevs that Tommy is infact gone.  Straxus makes his way to Vidar.  The group meets up to say goodbyes.  Straxus speaks with Vidar and finds that Tommy was given a mission and is out in the streets.  Straxus requests that he leave the guard detail to search for Tommy.  Vidar allows him to do so as he prepares to make his way to the academy.  Vidar, Vancarlo, and Trinia make their way to the carriage.  Vidar requests that Trinia play the part of a wife and Vancarlo a driver for the carriage for a midnight ride.  

Straxus leaves off to track tommy down.  After some tracking and keen perception finds tommy at the docks surrounded by other urchins.  Straxus sneaks up and plays at being a pedophile.  Then chastises Tommy on his actions.  They make their way back to find that Portia was non the wiser and actually asleep.  Straxus coaxes tommy to bed and then makes his way to the Orisini Academy.  Straxus then makes his way to the Citadel to report to Croft.  He wakes her to report and she reinstates him to the Midnight Watch.  She falls asleep and Straxus works to organize her office while she sleeps.  

Neth 25th, 4707

The day begins at the Amor residence as most of the party gathers around for breakfast.  Vidar remains at the Academy.  Straxus and Portia make their way to the Citadel while Volka returns to Eel’s End.  Portia confronts Straxus about Tommy's behavior.  He lies his ass off and convinces her that it must be a young boy becoming a young man kinda thing and asks that Portia advise Anders to speak with him about at length.

As Vidar makes his way to the Citadel and meets up with Volka, they have a pleasant exchange before Vidar makes his way to the Citadel.  

The party meets at Cressida’s office to meet with Thousand Bones.  He knows that Gaegan’s Body, a young boy of Shoanti descent was murdered and then his corpse was then taken and sold to a necromancer known to both the Shoanti and the City as a criminal.  Thousand Bones offers either the body be retrieved from Roth (Necromancer) or war will take place between the Shoanti and Korvosans.  Rolth was a failed academy student.  Kicked out for his experiments.  He butchered vagrants and animals to create a golem from the body parts.  Charges weren't placed to keep it quiet.  She thinks many other murders can be attributed to him.  They think he is in the Dead Warrens a location somewhere in the Gray.  Also known as the only surviving son of Gaedrin.  Attempt to take him in, but defend ourselves if needed.  

Rolth Lamm – Necromancer – Son of Gaedrin Lamm

Task: Apprehend or Kill Rolth Lamm
    If apprehended he will be publicly executed to send a message.  

Dead Warrens are located in potters warren, or the court of a thousand bones.  
The man who sold the body is in custody.  

Elkaris – man who sold the body

Straxus suggests that missives be sent out for Volka and Theo for help.  Straxus and Portia make their way to Rossy while Vidar remains behind.  He asks about the Assassin that was captured only to find out that Cressida had no idea about the capture.  It was in fact a person captured by the queen's new guard.  Vidar expresses that things seem very suspect.  She also explains that the peace talks between the Shoanti had been going well until the death of the boy.
