A lot of the text I usually wrote in my old campaign I’m going to trim down in these logs to just the facts. Your great critical hits or incredible flops are fun to talk about, but time consuming to write out in detail. As such I’m just using these logs as the cliff notes of your adventures so that you have what you need in case you didn’t take notes. I do however encourage you to talk about exploits to eachother and to others if they ask, in true role play fashion.
The group finds a deadman (Bonal Geldem)on a bridge in the Upper City. Before fully investigating the body you were attacked by a warforged who upon defeat a mechanical bird flew from its chest and into the darkness.
Investigating the body you find.
Identification papers (Bonal Geldem, human male, elderly, Provost at Morgrave University, School of Pre-Galifar studies)
Blank journal lined with mithral thread and an ancient symbol.
Blank papers, quills and inks and a wrapped apple
You convince Sgt. Dolom of your honest intentions in investigating the body and he lets you go, warnning you to leave investigations to the city watch.
You are then approached by a woman from House Cannith (The house of making) with an offer. (The mistake I made in this, is that it happens after you left the scene, but before you reach a house/inn, tavern etc, it didn’t happen seconds after Sgt. Dolom let you go) Find a piece of an ancient schema deep below the sewers and you will be handsomely rewarded (1000gp, 200 up front) and gain a favor of House Cannith.
Using her signet ring of House Cannith she was able to open the journal to reveal Bonals notes on the location of the schema.
You questioned her and gained the following pieces of information.
What does the schema look like?
“The relic I see is an adamantine plate in the shape of a seven-pointed star about the size of your hand. It has no special power by itself, but is an ancient schema, a piece of a pattern used by the Cannith artificers of old to craft unusual items. Recover this piece of history for us and House Cannith will be extremely grateful”
Who killed Bonal Geldem?
“A servant of the Lord of Blades. The warforged prophet wants the schema for his own dark purposes.”
How do we reach the lower levels?
“This map shows the way to reach the sewers of the Dorasharn Tower. Somewhere beyond the E-213 Valve Cluster you’ll find a sealed door with the same mark as the one on Bonal’s journal. Open the seal, and the tunnel beyond will take you to the long forgotten level far below, where the foundry resides.”
Are there any dangers we should be aware of?
“Other than the Lord of Blades, who may have other agents seeking the schema, who knows what lurks in the hidden places beneath the city? Now that I think about it, Bonal did say that he would definitely need to bring fire on the expedition. I wonder what he meant? Anyway, I urge caution, but I am completely confident that you can handle anything you may encounter in your search.”
You head to the lowest level of Dorasharn tower, but couldn’t find an entrance to the sewers. The Rat’s Market run by the goblin Skakan knows information and through a combination of gold and intimidation he shows you a secret passage that leads into the sewers. Both of you notice that a shifter was watching your conversation with Skakan closely, but when it was evident you were aware of this fact, faded quickly into the crowd.
