The party where in The worlds fence buying “recovered” items from a shady auction and while inspecting their haul where interrupted by someone implying himself to be the owner of Terba castle’s arcane laboratory asking how they got in, the party promptly attacked. They stabbed but he did not bleed, Moosa was paralysed and Rolan was compelled to stop and not long after arriving the mage disappeared. The party gathered what space remained in the portable hole alongside Rolan’s new alchemy lab and where carried away by Rolan who was able to observe that they seemed to be completely alone in the auction house.
In the morning the group asked after Mark and where
told that someone had been summoned from Estaria to help him, someone who also had an interest in speaking with Thia. Later where wandering the docks in the direction of Tilo’s ship when someone called out in their direction “Martin! Martin is that you?”. Eric arbalest for the “Company of St. Martin” and apparently old friend of “Martin”. Mara went with “Martin” to meet the old company and had to sprint to keep up as Moosa fled a company in which he was no longer welcome.
A curious party was offered a deal of shots for questions. Thia left to delve into the deep and arcane mysteries of the soap of refreshment and Mara got all she wanted in short order, leaving Rolan, Moosa and Howling Under The Two Moons to be inquisitive as they could stomach, leaving them with the challenge of making it back to the inn. Wandering the streets the pair where offered some assistance making it home Rolan and Howling under the two moons refused and left but Moosa was intrigued at what he saw as an opportunity for some extra-party interaction, Mara for her part spent her efforts ensuring that Rolan didn’t lose the portable hole.
In the morning Moosa arrived back at their inn wearing a lovely new dress and leather boots combination he had acquired, it was also noticed that he arrived without the white streak in his hair. Moosa did have instructions on meeting up with the person in possession of his equipment so after a day of Rolan and Howling under the two moons searching the town to find where the portable hole ended up (Mara had it) the group converged at the meeting place.
Moosa didn’t ask Sarra’s name but she did all but confirm that she was the one Vigo had sent after the golden knot in Mara’s absence and seeing the nature of the party came to the logical conclusion that she was unlikely to get it back from them, the more questionable decision was holding Moosa’s equipment ransom for assistance in robing the Ironguard bank, the group was given some time to consider and told to meet back up tomorrow.
Robing the bank could be difficult but not impossible for a group such as they where and could even be profitable, the bigger problem was that after a misunderstanding involving the feywild artefact Mara informed the party that she had other business and left saying they would see her in Valendris afterwards…
