Sure, Matthias, use the earlier roll. Let's defy those dice Gods!
Diplomacy roll success! Kane studies Nijena for a moment, before nodding his head. We should combine our efforts, yes. Doing so will allow us to cover more ground, giving us a better chance at these cultists. Kane shakes his head. I should have suspected, from the very beginning, that Sander would be tied into demonic powers. Drow are corrupt to the core; Sander claimed to be an exile, and an apostate from Lolth. He was truthful on both points. He was indeed exiled from his city, but for the forbidden worship of a demon lord - Orcus. Ammus, too, is corrupted by demons. He passed himself off as a worshipper of Talos, when in fact he is another slave of Orcus.
I know they had at least three more allies, humans, I believe - one is a dark priest, and the other, an anti-Paladin. All members of the cult are covered in tattoos. Before our parting ways they boasted of having agents deployed elsewhere in the region, and of infiltrating bandit groups, for the purpose of clandestinely gathering subjects for sacrifice.
Upon their breaking with Shiang and myself, I slew one of their number - a warrior woman named Marta - but the others escaped my grasp. They now prey upon the very settlers I once challenged. The irony of my situation has not escaped me.
At our last meeting, they were successful in summoning something with their ritual - a demon of some sort - which fled before Shiang, my sylvan brothers, and myself descended upon them. It flew off towards Port Kir - I do not know its purpose.
