So there we are in the Square, having recovered the rod and we get accosted by a group of brigands. Which among there number are 2 former colleagues of Carybdis….This group of murder hobos make claims of Carybdis being a Traitor, murder, etc. During a very brief conversation, arrows begin to fly…Here in this nice square dedicated to Torm. The onslaught of battle carries on for what seems an eternity…The surrounding civilians scattering to get away from the battle….At some point Carybdis tries to fool our opponents bu throwing his crowing like it was the Rod, They had a slight resemblance to each other, across the square. While hiding the real rod. They apparently don’t fall for the trick. they press on even harder. It’s no longer a fight for the Rod, but for our eradication… After several spells and repulsed attacks, Gildor is felled and i am racked with a devastating blow. Carybdis runs from the square, getting our attackers to follow him. Vonin’s attacks having found there marks as well as Eskiaths. I am able to fell the leader of the pack before hs is able to give chase, but not before one of the brigands ends up stealing something from Gildor. We have no idea what he has taken until later on…I use my lay on hands to heal myself, saving some to go stabilize Gildur, But Eskiath gets to him before me. pouring a potion into his mouth. Vonin shapeshifts into a spider and climbs the building to follow the brigands from the roof tops. As we hear someone yells
“COME TO ME RAVENS OF THE NIGHT!.”
As the running battle starts to pass through side streets and back alleys. I call upon Sylvanus to guide my hand in this battle, and i am guided to my vowed foe, but fail to fell him. Even Eskiath and Gildur get their shots in before he escapes. We then notice that more foe’s start coming out of the different doorways. This fight is quickly going against us. We decide to retrograde our position and regroup sans Carybdis.
Vonin locates the tavern where the Thief has gone too, and directs us to it. We approach the doorway, but are stopped by a doorman. After a brief conversation we rush the door. After a stand off. Gildur gives them an ultimatum of 3 hours to return his property, which we find out is his spellbook. Those present in the bar don’t really take him seriously. So he fire bolts part of their alcohol supply behind the bar to show he means business….
