Caught Between Worlds
3rd Entry Jaxson
In the Library with Amara and Amethyst, we get interrupted by Lord Entropy and a hoard of children just as we find a book with some information on Scssorak. The book conveniently disappears from my book satchel when we were distracted by the children and Lord Entropy.
Amethyst gets met at the Library doors by Osric Tanelorn, the Sunstem a man that looks the part of the male lead on all those racier romance novels that my mother reads and they go to the temple for Kiri for some event or another.
Amara and I head to the Ivory Tower district to meet up with her contact Char at the Den. But on the way, I get kidnapped and brutalized by Acolytes of the Church of Aspyx, but hey I get a nifty tattoo out of the deal.
After waking up in my bed, naked and healed I join the rest of the party, after dressing!!, and we go to the Gold Coin district to meet up with Klaus, except that we get run into by a pair of thieves and in the chaos that followed they stole my book satchel with all the books that I had from this world. The primer for Arcana, the spellbook, the 6th edition of the Powers book and the tome that updated itself as we travel in this world of Terra.
After giving chase we catch up with one to find he did not have the books, the second one almost escapes but is caught by some demi-powers? of the Fey – Tatiana and Mab, these powers are older than The Light and The Dark they are also separate from the Old Powers,
We get challenged to a series of contests to get the bag and its contents back from the bored fey, but lose as our morals just wouldn’t let us go all out in some of the contents. We gain a bag of gems out of the deal, for entertaining the fey but not the books or my satchel.
Klaus had left by the time we arrived at the casino we were supposed to meet him at, so James Wellborn left a note with his dealer.
Raith Ackhart had visited the Guild hall in town and found a couple of jobs in the Book of Dispatch that we could do and we decided to contact the poster of the job in Old Town.
Turns out that it was posted by a man named Barringer Rosewood who is in charge of the ‘security’?? for the old town. It seems that a number of people have gone missing, both singularly and in groups over the last few weeks.
We investigated the last three housed and found a common link in all three. Their larder was bare and they all had fliers or take out jars from the The Golden Pot, a Pot-shop in the Pauper district.
A second lead is that there was a smell in the area that disturbed Amara’s dog Rex. A dead smell. Tracking the smell also lead to the Pauper district but was lost in the confusion of smells so it was not able to be followed
While tracking the scent Amethyst spotted a tail on us and Rex agrees that it’s the same scent. Amethyst then brought up that she had been getting the feeling that she has been watched for the last few days, if this is the same guy he’s been a very busy little revenant.
It was quickly brought up that this could be a Soylent Green scenario as soon as we saw the Pot Shop and how the food was cooked.
Amara and Raith Ackhart got a sample from the take out window in the back of the shop and Amethyst studied it and found no poisons or drugs in it.
James Wellborn and Dorian Hillot watched the shop that night and observed a late night delivery that was very suspicious. James Wellborn arranged to talk to the manager about ‘expanding the business’
