69 - A Cunning Trap and An Unexpected Tavern Guest

Post by DalamarD » Wed May 29, 2019 4:44 pm

The Forsaken decide to teleport to Blingdenstone. Our plan is to call a council meeting, ostensibly to discuss a potential drow incursion, but actually aimed at drawing out the dark elf informant. We seek out Gurmadden to get a feel for the current situation in Blingdenstone before proceeding with the council meeting. We exchange pleasantries with him and briefly detail our trip to the drow trading post. He says that Briddick hasn't been seen in over two weeks. This concerns us slightly, so we cast a sending to Briddick. He responds telling us that he came across a drow patrol and an illithid hit-squad, and that he would return to Blingdenstone soon.


We then head over to the Flawed Ruby, where we talk to Kargian and tell him that we wish to convene the council. While we are speaking to Kargian, Xander and Picket cast detect magic and walk circuits of the tavern. We eventually detect a creature on the ceiling. Picket points it out, and the creature drops to the ground, revealing itself to be a female drow wearing intense camo. We attack her, and she throws a flash bang. We get in a few more spells and attacks, but she runs outside the tavern, drinks a potion, and disappears. Picket fireballs the area, but it seems to have no effect. Pretor casts an insect plague where he thinks the drow is in order to slow her down. The Forsaken (sans Amadeus, who heroically stays in the tavern) chase after her through the streets of Blingdenstone. We eventually surround her, and though she's still invisible, manage to slay her as she attempts to run away. As her body falls to the ground, we prepare to revivify her so that we may commence interrogation.
