The Cobblers prepare themselves for the wedding of Pheleia and Tarkeen. As they prepare, the Sultan pays each of them a visit to fulfill each of their request. For Leana she is given a notebook filled with names of her family and the places they were sent, for Kie-Pear he was given 4 slaves, two boys and two girls. Nella the bard was given a harp as a gift and was told she would be providing the music for the wedding. Pheleia was given two personal bodyguards.
The wedding went off with a hitch, the food was flowing as well as the wine. The honeymoon phase was even sweeter as all of the palace could hear the passionate cries of Tarkeen and Pheleia.
The next morning during breakfast, Tarkeen asked them of their plans. They had plan to go to Zarafel Castle before heading home to Myant, but the Prince warned them of trouble in the city of Myant. Riots and civil disorder where happening as reported by travelers and caravans.
The cobblers returned in haste to Myant to find the city indeed in chaos as well as fliers littering the streets. The fliers read:
“The governor knows! He is a liar! The Prince still lives!”
The party made it to their base of operations for a moment’s rest. Their maid Constance informed them that the troubled of the city happened a week after they left for Blackwell Prison. Some of the members decided to visit Governor Aoth to learn of the happenings. It was their they learned the chaos was dude to a cult named The Spiders Shadow who was looking for the Prince. The cobblers learned that the governor, in an attempt to save the kingdom years ago, killed of the King and Queen because they had made some sort of agreement with dwellers of the underdark. Governor Aoth then told them he could not kill a child so instead imprisoned the prince for his own safety. It was also during the riots that the Rod of Kings and Commander Stormcloaks sword were stolen. Returning home, their butler Jeeves mentioned that perhaps a magical item was being used upon the citizens of the city.
In the morning Kerjiit, Pheleia and her body guards, visited the Tomb of the King and Queen to see if their bodies were amiss. After exhuming the bodies, Kirgiit found a small trace of magical energy still upon the king and queen. At the same time the other half of the party spied upon a rally where they noticed an odd tattoo on one of the demonstrators. After the rally they cornered the man in an alleyway were he told them things in the city were only a distraction for things to come and that the time of the Spider Queen’s return was soon. He also told them that there were at least a dozen cult members still inciting revolt within the city and that the main force of the cult were holed up within Castle Zarafel. The man then took his own life on Leana’s sword.
As the group got back together they decided to visit Commander Stormcloak for more answers. The found the commander beaten up and in a bed within the barrack grounds. He had taken a beating defending the city. The group told the commander of the location of the cult members and the Commander told him his men would be in their service should they need it.
