A noble's son has gone missing while on a pilgrimage to Sirathu. Can our heroes find him in time?

"Oh...um...Oog and I are OK with either time of day. I'd prefer to get some sleep, but I can wait."


What have you decided, investigate tonight or wait until the morning? Also, what are your going to do with Cerpera?

I think we are leaving Cerpera to the care of the priests, since it seems like she would be more comfortable with them. I am okay with investigating tonight. I, for one, did not use any spells.

Seconded. Also, Owen didn't use much in the way of spells, but miraculously gained two extra spells slots (nice catch, GM Tordek)...


No one seems to object to investigating tonight. So let's proceed.

Reaching a consensus to investigate the possible lair of Maxkevlay Soncatim located somewhere near the Brothers of the Seal shrine this evening, the group departs from the pool chamber. Nyxalia carries Cerpera in her arms.

On the other side of the door, they find Hortiln waiting. As he looks at each of you, he is taken aback with a sense of unease. "I trust that your audience with Cerpera has gone well. The Lady of Graves has bestowed special favor on this dear child. When Cerpera came to us, she said that Pharasma has called to you as well. May I be of any assistance before you depart?"

Nyalia steps forward with Cerpera and says, "she's had a hard night and needs rest."


Hortiln steps forward and takes Cerpera into his arms. He tells Nyxalia, "We will keep her in the Godsmouth Cathedral for now. She will be well cared for and protected. Is there anything else?"

"Can you tell us aught of the Brothers of the Seal?" Zarine queries of the good brother, gold eyes sizing him up in an oddly alien fashion, "Or provide us with healing potions in case we run into trouble?"


Hortiln answers Zarine, "Normally, the church is closed at this hour, but given your special purpose, I am sure we can find some healing potions for you before you depart. As for the Brothers of the Seal, they confine their conflict to themselves. They shouldn't give you any trouble unless you get in between them or appear to favor one side over the other. Best to stay neutral as far they go and avoid them as much as possible."


"So they are a bunch of raggamuffins and rogues, fighting wit' themselves? Or are they a cowled gaggle of dodgy mystics, all politics and in-fighting? Any recommendations who deals fair with thee." Ulath asks trying to figure out the situation.

"Either way, situation possibly to our advantage."


Hortiln turns to Ulath. "Oh their fighting is real and quite deadly. The battle between the two factions first erupted on the streets of the Oriat district about 30 years ago. Several innocent bystanders, caught in the cross fire, lost their life that day." Hortiln pauses for a moment to reflect on the deceased and then continues, "The other factions, led by the Ardocs and the Widdershins Constabulary, quickly quelled the riots and drove it back underground. Since then, the battle has raged on mostly in the shadows. The leader of the traditionalist, they call themselves the 'Faithful' is Father Zho. He welcomes any who are neutral or better yet, sympathetic to their cause. The other faction calls themselves the Scions. They are led by Aldair Eamon, a red-headed showman of sorts. You will see him around town preaching about the rightness of their cause. As I said before, don't get caught between them and you'll be safe."


Bump - any more questions or are you ready to leave and continue your investigation?

Ready to go if everyone else is.

"In as far as it is possible," Savendir says to Hortiln. "If one side or the other is involved somehow in this foul business, it may not be possible to avoid."

He moves to set out with the others.


Hortiln leads you back to the Godsmouth Cathedral. He unlocks a side door and guides you into a small vestibule. The light is dim, as only one candle illuminates the room. Great carvings of Pharasma's holy symbol have been worked into the wooden paneled walls on each wall. He pulls a rope hanging on the other side of the room and waits patiently. In a few minutes, the door opens and a young priest peers into the room. Hortiln whispers into the priest's ear. The priest gives you an odd look, then nods and turns away. "I have asked him for some healing potions to aid you in your quest. He will also summon another priestess to take charge of Cerpera."

A few more minutes pass and then the door opens again. The original priest accompanied by an elderly priestess enter the room. The priestess moves to Nyaxlia. "I will take the dear child." Taking the sleeping child with surprising ease, she continues, "The poor girl must be exhausted from her ordeal. We will take very good care of her." The other priests hands you 6 small bottles. "These will help you in case you are injured." 4 of the bottles are potions of cure light wounds and the other 2 bottles are potions of cure moderate wounds.

Nyxalia hands Cerpera over to the priestess and moves to join the others.
She stands quietly off to the side, as is her norm, and pulls the gift of the Goddess out of her pouch. Power pulses through her, not as much as when she first received the item, but enough to reinforce her connection to it. Strangely, for anyone looking, the small crystal orbiting her head seems to dip closer to the object she holds with each pass around her. Looking more closely the the object in her palm, she notices something and a curious look comes over her face.She quickly snatches the spinning crystal from the air and brings it down to meet whatever she is holding. A smile spreads over her face and she grips the item tighter, before putting it back into her pouch, the small crystal no longer orbiting her head.
