Felligo Mahd Returns with a new request for The Guild: Chad, the monotone priest of Sarenrae, spotted Noah (aka Stinky) walking by and basically dropped the mission in his hands since there were more important things going on around the temple and no one likes working with the cartographer anyway. Noah grabbed Hawk with Aegis and Holmes and headed for Mahd’s Maps to get the details. It was simple enough, take a map, some supplies and a camel to the Precipice District and retrieve a feather quill pen of special sentimental value left behind in the death of a noble family in their mansion. Holmes, having dealt with Felligo before adamantly declined using the camel and questioned the cartographer’s right to claim this item. According to local rumors, a young noble (Artigo Sanclese) had arrived in town a while back with proof that he was the proper heir to the Mantiere property and fortune. With little resistance, they went ahead and accepted the mission from Felligo for 150gp plus a possible reward for bringing back other items of import.
After stopping to grab some holy water and a pack mule, they made their way to the Precipice District and followed the map under Hawk’s expert guidance. They were intercepted by a trio of zombies, but Hawk and Aegis made short work of them. After reaching the mansion, Holmes was surprised by another zombie that knocked young Hawk senseless before being destroyed. They found little in the ruins of the mansion, now overgrown with masses of trees and vines, besides a lone animated skeleton and a piece of a tapestry dedicated to Urgathoa that Holmes swears is super valuable! They found a secret passage leading below the mansion hidden inside a statue-fountain and made their way down. After wading through putrid water and sludge, locating treasure guarded by a magical trap they couldn’t bypass, Watching Noah attempt to climb a barbed chandelier only to crash onto his back and be trapped beneath it, disturbing a nest of rats that swarmed them, and nearly losing Hawk to creeping vines that tried to drag him under the water and drown him, they are ready to continue their search for the pen …. to be continued
