so we awoke the next day, shaken really by noise of guards… this instantly brings me flashbacks of my past… constantly on the run with my beloved elana and I panic thinking it might be best to make a break because surely they are after me for some reason. So i gather up my gear only to realize the guards are after the foolish dwin… he is being accused of murder of the dwarf who hired us…. while the guards are busy trying to knock dwins door down we see dwin comeing from eli’s room. why? and why does dwin have eli’s wand?
ahhh I get it, its eli that’s being taken away and not dwin… not sure what his angle is but it may have something to do with an escape plan and him being a wizard able to use magic to get past the guards… unfortunately the guards are too well prepared using some magical maniacal designed to keep people from casting spells…. clearly they think our group is capable of escaping prisons…. they would be right,
not having any time to discuss plans i decide to employ an old tactic i learned from elana to cause a distraction and then break my old pal eli out of the slammer… I have no time to coordinate with the rest of the group as eli’s spell he uses would be running out soon. so i change my appearance via a spell and start fires to uninhabited buildings as i figure more murders might make the situation worse for us…. then wait for the alarm to be sounded and for the guards to rush toward the fires to put them out…i then impersonate the captain of the guard ordering all the rest of the guards to fight the blaze and convince them the rest of town is in danger, leaving me the only person left with the keys to eli’s cell… i find out the keys work on elis cell door but not the cuffs so as i am about to use shatter spell like we did on the dwarf dwin speaks up and says he could pick the locks and does so… success, eli is now free and can make a run for it… problem is eli doesnt want to be on the run and decides to stay and face the people bringing charges… i wish him the best of luck and dwin and myself leave.
so the fires are put out and the guards plus inquisitors go inside the tower… one of them i recognize as a great adventurer named merit who’s exploits are known far and wide… i think he slayed a dragon, but i am not sure. apparently they have a conversation with eli stating that the dwarf was a dwarven lord of high importance and that someone must pay for the murder… so they gave him an incurable poison that will kill him in 72 hours unless we find the true killer… guess they don’t care if its an innocent person that dies just as long as it appeases the dwarven kingdom. I will try to help keep my old pal eli find this killer and thus get the antidote… or perhaps we will need to steal it, but lets try to find this killer first before things get even uglier.
so we ask dwin if he did it… and dwin has fuzzy memories that maybe he did in fact kill the dwarf but wasnt sure how or why… dwin also has fresh blood… my suspicion is that dwin perhaps has been infected with lycanthropy by one of the wererats as murder doesnt seem dwin’s style… but let the investigation begin
we all go back to the scene where a distraught dwarven brother is mad at dwin… but we talk some reason into him because clearly dwin had no motive to kill this dwarf… we suspect we pissed off someone powerful… perhaps the owner of dwins ring? and wished to frame dwin with this murder… at the scene we discover markings on the door and all the signs point to the fact that dwin did do the murder but clearly this is a result of some kind of magic, or possession… to bring this evidence to light we go the the powerful priest in town and ask for his help… he confirms that dwins memories do infact collaborate this story but a section of dwins memories are erased… memories of an old wear house close to where i started some fires… we as a group go to investigate
we go in straight with full force… we find another shield guardian, some ratfolk, and a DROW? I have read stories about these dark elves but never seen one… amazing, anyway through spells and sword we are able to route our unsuspecting enemy and now we have a prisoner to question…. I am sure the inquisitors will want their hands on this drow and for that hopefully will give eli his antidote
