Wrapping Up Business
In the now guild hall of Chimera, Gragus informed the rest of the group about what happened at the council meeting. While doing so they are paid a visit from Denaford Grey, who is a member of the city’s council. He told the group that he wasn’t happy with how Gragus was treated at the council meeting and came to apologize and form a better relationship. HE gave to them some extra information and details they may need for their journey into Vinguard and provides with a map of the town. Once he concluded his business and was on his way the party spent the next two days preparing.
Gragus paid another visit to Grimore’s Magical Mysteries and picked up his requested enchantment. XT-002 made his way to the Military Quarter and picked the extra armour he had requested. He also made an extra request of having an attachable penis made for himself but this request wasn’t so well received. Also in the Military Quarter Gragus made a trip to the see the bandits they had handed in upon their return to the city. Speaking with captain they turned over, Gragus failed to learn anything of great importance but did find there was only two ways in and out of the city and that his orders came from an unknown source higher up.
Laude continued his investigation into who it was that broke into the guild hall. After reconvening with his new rat “employee” he learned that a man running from the High Quarter was seen going into a shop called Boblings Treasure Chest. Laude order the rat and other rats to watch the shop and Low Quarter to see who came and went. Before leaving for Vinguard, Laude met with the rats once more and was told that the man seen entering hadn’t come back out but other people were seen going into the shop.
Following a straight forward journey to Vinguard, the party reached the town within two days and decided to enter the town from the South, at the hope of avoiding the guard they had met before. Approaching the gate they found that one of the guards was one they had met before and he recognized them, or rather the bard Liddy, instantly. It didn’t take much persuading for him to let them into the town and he gave them directions to the one tavern in town. The group headed straight for the tavern, and while walking through town saw that it wasn’t the most welcoming of places.
The tavern was filled with bandits, all drinking and merry making. They were fortunate enough to find a place at the bar to grab a drink and a seat. It was here they came into contact with a Halfling named Ander Baggershot. Ander paid for the groups drinks and revealed to them that he knew about them prior to their arrival. He also seemed to have extensive knowledge of Vinguard and those inside it. While at the tavern the group were also able to pick out a man that had been described to Gragus by the captive bandit as his leader. They learned his name was Grundel and that he had hit rock bottom since none of his men had returned from the latest tasks they were set on.
