After stepping into an unknown portal, the party reluctantly frees the fifteen pegasi and heads north to a nearby city.
Telkin is divided between the High and Low Cities by a fifty-foot cliff, reinforced with “the barrier” to prevent scaling. The only known portal to High City is within the Temple of Pelor.
Brother Aldrin of Pelor confided a disturbing trend: The prayers and spells of the city’s priests are going randomly unanswered, but with increasing frequency.
Aldrin suspects the involvement of the cult called Ravenblood, and suspects Lord Jared Morganbane of masterminding the operation.
A brief lunch tour between “Lord Robert Brandibrook” and Olindar, the retainer of house Morganbane, revealed little. This prompted Myriad to initiate the less subtle approach.
Manor Morganbane mostly houses cultist guards, but a few oddities have been discovered already, among them:
- An enormous harpoon spider, held in thrall by eight cultists
- A very young red dragon
- A statue missing a weapon
Lord Jared Morganbane himself has yet to be located.
