Notes from 02/18/21 - I've Been in the Pit

Postby MercyDrake » Sun Feb 21, 2021 5:57 pm

Between Eclipse’s Healing Spirit and several cures from Mercy, the party got back to reasonable health. Mercy disguised herself as Sinestra Karas to play with the prisoner’s mind, but he saw through it very quickly. Even so, the guard, “Davo,” was tied up and interrogated, Amaroth trying to convince him that he was worthy of the Zentarum’s trust because he himself had been in the Zentarum pit. The guard did reveal that the blue door led to the prisoners and the red door deeper into the cistern network.

The party took a Zentarum pin (which Mercy wore to help her disguise), a coin pouch, a dagger, 5 rings, and a scroll case off Karas’ body. There were also two masterwork great swords, two half plate, and two coin purses from the guards, but the party wasn’t very interested in most of that. 75 gp, 123 sp total from many different sources meant 17.26 gp each. Two of the rings were magical (messaging, and control bound to a creature).

Banging on the entry door (barred) was met with the statement from Fuma that ‘Karas will not be disturbed.’ The pounding eventually stopped, but the party was sure that Nob had gone off to get help. If anything, Fuma’s reputation continues to grow with the Zentarum.

Because the goal was to rescue Moraine, the party went through the blue door and found a human cleric of Lothander, his dragonborn acolyte, and a female city watch guard. While all three were chained and gagged, they were able to alert the party by their actions that entering the room was dangerous.

The party entered anyway. Fuma shadowstepped between the acolyte and the guard to remove their gags. Amaroth dimension doored between the clerics to unlock their chains. Arrival in the room brought forth a shimmering blue troll ready to deal damage, but a paralyzation ray from Mercy (missed) and a polymorph from Eclipse (successfully turned it into a toad) took care of the problem.

The guard was Moraine. The clerics were Culthran and his acolyte Haardrak. The guard was left tied up in the room with the toad. Moraine took a great sword and half plate. Mercy gave a long knife to Haardrak. The party went through the red door and found the possessions of the three in the corridor to the cistern.

As the three re-equipped, Culthran told the party that something had happened to the Harvest Priest who watched over the water supply. There was now a demonic presence within the cisterns. That the Zentarum here are not aware of what is occurring. Everyone agreed to meet at House Ulmer.

The cistern held the body of one of the guards that had run. Claw marks. The party went up to the sky light and left, but not before a figure came out of the north tunnel, looked Mercy over, and shifted into an abyssal form with a super long tongue. Might be a slaad of some kind.

Everyone split up. On the way back to the Dragonback Inn, Fuma and Mercy saw a phalanx of Zentarum exiting the dukal residence, hurrying to take up positions in the town. The bartender was alert to this, telling all of the party ‘go to your rooms, stay there.’ The party hunkered down and prepared for the inevitable knock on the door.

Letter taken from Sinestra Karas:

You are to ensure that none of the priests nor any of their "devotions" leave the cistern network. Under no circumstances do we wish the nobility in the town or castle to discover what has transpired.

We await word from Pereghost, but we do not believe whatever has befallen the priests is a result of the current lords of Daggerford. The alliance must stand. Keep the cistern closed.

In the name of the Black Hand,
Salterice
