Festival of the Scions
The Scions were having breakfast at the Adventurer’s Guild House. The caretaker had made them breakfast and was just about to serve them when she looked up and bows, somewhat startled at the appearance of Lady Zufferin. Lady Zufferin requested a fine herbal tea, or she might very well die. After a little back and forth with the group, she asked if Aelik had returned from his vacation. She revealed that she had opened the town portal to Highpass earlier and he had stepped through.
The Honor Guard (Nynn’s new militia name) came by, led by Horace. With “Eternal Slumber” at his side, Horace had a seat and told the group that the tournament will start tomorrow. The town had almost doubled in size, with many merchants setting up shop outside the city. Crime was higher out there as well, so he advised that the group stays within the city limits. He was also instructed by Orvillis (Orville) Jacks that their presence was requested at his city home for dinner later tonight.
Yelena was working with the Church of Bahamut, so she was unavailable. However, she asked the group if they could find her brother Uther somewhere in Tent City. She’d heard he’d made the trip to Nynn, and hasn’t seen him in a very long time. He’d most likely be in a spiritual temple, or a bar.
The Scions of Legacy arrived in Tent City and stopped in at the Great Fire. The Great Fire was a large bonfire pit that had been dug into the earth. Large stacks of trees had been dragged here, but upon investigation the trees had no rings. They had been magically created for fuel. The flames danced in the firepit, changing color. Standing close to the flames relaxed the group. Smaller tents were set up in rings around the fire, along with prayer mats out front. Prayer beads hung from a few of the tents.
Madaless was moderating a discussion near the fire between local merchants and a merchant from Waterdeep. They were discussing the potential for trade in the future, using mystical portals to move goods.
The Pub was a large tent with wooden walls. It was always busy, like a scene out of Oktoberfest. They serve MeatSteak, MeatSoup, and various Ales. The Scions were told that Uther always came back to the Pub, and if they want to stick around they were welcome to wait for him.
That’s when they were serenaded -
“Abelarde Whitby – a bag of hot air
The one they call Toby, all covered with hair
because his drunk father had sex with a bear
and Lucan the coward – his spine is not there
Yelena’s a whore who just wants you to stare
A Festive for Scions we really don’t care.”
Muradin knew the Scions were there. He knew they were looking for Uther. He also knew they’re looking to unload gear. But they had come into his domain, and there was a cost of doing business. However, since there was magic afoot they’d have to compete to earn the goodies. Come back in the evening.
The group attended Orville’s dinner. Midway through, Orville received a message and he ended the meal early. The group left but hung around and followed Orville to the Emerald Dream. They crashd the room he had gone into and found him murdered. They chased the potential killer and got a good look at him: Aultan. Aultan escaped.
