We opened on Cyranius meeting with Krisiries Urthadar to discuss the circumstances of her missing child, Gulthdar. He was taken during the night, and she was convinced it was due to hostility toward her being a Half-Orc in a leadership position on the Captain’s Congress in Wavecrest. During the abduction, Krisiries had chased the attackers across town, but lost them in the town square.
During the discussion, the rest of the group arrived and were brought up to speed on the situation. A search of the boy’s room revealed a pendant apparently left behind by the kidnappers. Krisiries’ friend Lily pocketed the item and left a cryptic note asking Cyranius to meet her at her shop to discuss it.
On their way to the shop, the guild decided to escalate their response to dealing with the party and literally released the hounds against them; however, the party’s response was not as good-natured as the last meeting, and they quickly dispatched the guilders, but not without Flax taking a thorough thrashing. The quick actions of Orben were the decisive factor is saving his life. While Tristanni and Cyranius resolved their situation by magic and sword. Their bloody business completed, Cyranius set to searching the bodies and found one to be branded with his guilder rank over his heart.
Continuing on, Cyranius met with Lily and found out about the nature of the pendant. She said that there has been a rising tide of magical energies in the region of Wavecrest. The symbol on the pendant is one that is tied to the Cult of Orcus. This combined with the rumours of things going bump in the night has led Lily to ask Cyranius and crew to help look into the rise in mystical occurrences and the potential ties to the Cult of Orcus and report back to her with any information about what’s going on.
After heading back to their “Base of Operations” at the Sandy Shores, the party enjoyed a round of drinks on the house and began to discuss what they thought they should do next about their situation.
