Myrtul 12, 1484 DR Year Of The Awaken Sleepers
Bryn Shander Mines, Tentowns
The companions race against time to prove the barbarians innocence. Olo, visits Brianna Alcot, the merchant that accused the barbarian of robbery. He doesn’t find her in her store but he learns that she is a regular at the Hooked Knucklehead tavern. Quinn believes that Aarun the Harper, could have many information that will help them. The companions descent into the city’s mines to find him. The guards, warn them to stay away from the east side, because something dangerous lurks there. Quinn picks up the Harper’s trail and lead the company to an underground water cave, deep in the mines. A dragon-like carnivore that spots them, attacks. The heroes put the beast down and the small puddle fills with blood. Underneath the water Quinn finds the dead body of a man. He carries a ripped letter and a Harper ring. Quinn finds out that the dead man is Aaruun and the letter written from Mithan, led him there. Olo, spots an underwater passage and the companions swim to the other side of the cave. They find some kind of hideout. They unlock the wooden door and spy on the corridor. Three men kneel in front of a cloaked figure. One of them is writing notes in a piece of paper. The halfling activates his magical medallion. Instantly, he reads the thoughts of the three men, but not the forth’s.
“I should be leading the operations not staying in this damn city.” thinks the first man.
“We should get a bigger cut from the blackmails.”, thinks the second man.
“How much longer should i do it? I have to get out soon.” thinks the third man.
Quinns arrow intercept their thoughts, as it flies towards the cloaked figure. Instead of bleeding , it dissolves into smoke, appearing to be only a projection. The companions battle with the three men and kill them. Quinn recognize they were members of the Dead Rat’s assassins of Luskan. The notes contain merchant names and information used to blackmail them.
