Session 31: Revelations

In the morning, Phelaia and Nella escort Alcoril to meet with the Lords of Brapool again. The others decide to find clues about Konowa’s past by visiting his uncle’s house.

When Phelaia and Nella make it to the tower of Lords, they find Lt. Thomas. He accused them of posing as merchants, of bring fiends into the city, and collaborating with a known rebel, Lionel. Donova seems to read their minds, and Phelaia is compelled to speak the truth. She tells Donovan that Elathar (Konowa) still lives and that he is in the city. They are promptly jailed. While jailed they entice the elven soldiers with “foreign beauty” and unionization.

The other half of the party make their way to Donovan’s house, finding only spectral servants taking care of the house. As they search the study for clues, they find an old letter by Konowa to Donovan explaining the attempt on his life during the Moon Festival. They quickly make their escape as Donovan and some soldier near the house.

As they escape Konowa has a vision of a house with a garden, but does not act upon it. The group heads to a library where they find information about Konowa’s clan as well as the Moon Festival. They comfirm what all ready know, but also learn that Konowa’s father was sent into the Shadowfell. Before they leave, the librarian gives them the address to Konowa’s house.

After the library, they go to the house Konowa see in his vision and they find out it is the home of Konowa’s ex fiance, Arowen. They question her if they know anything about Konowa’s father, but before she could answer she leaves to attend to a crying child inside the house.

We leave off with the Cobblers shopping at the Bazaar in the city of Myant. Phelaia goes to meet with Prince Tarkeen and he ask her to return to the palace with him. She tell him, “Can you give me a day to think about it?” He agrees.

Elsewhere some of the party meet an eccentric shop owner who tries to sell them a flying carpet. They also meet two other children who seem to be urchins from the city of Al-Mammoun looking for food. Leana takes them in.

Heading home, they hear word of war happening The Waste, a frozen land in the East of Faenirim. Some of their personal goals (Kerjiit seeing his brother via his crystal ball, Leana wanting to visit other places to look for her family, a visit to Barpool to deliver the cube to a safe vault) take them in that direction and after much deliberation they decide to head to Destone first to meet with John Fontaine and the Wolves Bane.

They acquire two magic carpets from the eccentric shop owner (due in part to Kerjiits haggling skills) and travel a week across desert and mountain.

When they arrive to Destone they find part of the city empty. They stop by a tavern to ask for directions. The barkeep they meet acts very strangely around them, but they pay it no mind. After a while an old man walks into the bar and makes a little small talk then leaves a silver sword on the table. He approaches the barkeep and slices his head off revealing a mud golem type creature.

The battle is fierce and no weapon seems to be doing any damage to it with the exception of the silvered sword and fire. Someone has the idea of throwing black powder on the creature and setting it ablaze.

Grabbing the old man, the party barely escape before the bar explodes with the creature still inside.

The old man leads them into what seems like an abandoned bar and introduces himself, “Illiyanna was right about you, but where are my manners. Sir John Fontaine of the Howls Bane. Welcome to Destone.”

During the meeting, Illiyanna ask if they would be interesting in joining the howl’s bane, a underground guild whose purpose is to destroy monstrosities and abominations of the world. Illiyanna tells them of the history of the Bane and tells them they would be welcomed in their number. The work is dangerous but the rewards are great.
