Edeya can't quiet explain it, but she seems to take to this fellow the way a merchant banker takes to a large overland spice route - some risk, but worth the payout. She answers him honestly without hesitation, "We're primarily looking for some villagers from Winterhaven who were taken captive by Krand. We tracked him to his lair and killed him, but only found one of those who were taken. However, our larger concerns involve some Orcus worshipers. They are up to some evil scheme and we, each for different reasons, must try to stop them."

Then she shows Darkseeker, the scrap of paper she took from Krand's room. "Do you know who these people are?"

Darkseeker listens intently. When Edeya mentions Orcus, he sits up suddenly. After she is done, he whispers. "You shouldn't mention that evil name lightly. You never know who, or what, might be listening." He looks at her for a long moment, long enough to make Edeya think he's not going to say anything else. Just as she feels the need to break the silence he says. "Please sit down. I sense that I can trust you as you have trusted me with your true intentions. I will also help you since your purpose is to fight the darkest of evils."

"Murkelmore is leader of the Grimmerzhul Clan. A clan of duergar, probably known to you as dark dwarves. He also goes by the nickname "Foerender". The Grimmerzhul Clan lives somewhere deep in the Labyrinth, possibly even so deep as to be in the Underdark. They are very secretive and very dubious. After the Mages established themselves in the Hall some decades ago, they sought out trade partners with denizens of the Underdark. Likely that's when they encountered the Grimmerzhul and began trading. It wasn't long after that the clan took over one of the houses here in the Hall to run a trading post. Kedhira is the duergar woman running the Girmmerzhul Trading Post. It's located in the fortress-looking building in the southeast of the Hall. I hadn't heard that she's also named Fireweaver though, must be her nickname."

Darkseeker grips Edeya's left lower arm to impress upon her his next words, and whispers so that only she can hear. "Listen. If you're planning to mess with the Grimmerzhul Clan, be careful, prepare well, and you'll come out of it alive. However, you have a greater destiny battling the Blood Lord. An evil wind has been stirring in the Nenir Vale for some time now and there are some of us devoted towards preserving the Points of Light during the coming Darkness. You will not fulfill your destiny without aid and the wisdom to know when to ask for it. When the time is right, go to the Fiveleague House on the road between Fallcrest and Hammerfast and tell Strider that I sent you there."

He lets go of Edeya's arm and abruptly stands up. As he passes her her by, her sharp eyes catch sight of his plain iron belt buckle underneath his cloak. The buckle is embossed with a symbol of a three-pronged crown. Before she has any chance to reply, Terrlen Darkseeker swiftly steps out of the Halfmoon Inn.

OOC: Is there anything else either of you want to do before an extended rest? I'll give you until this evening to do so, including purchases. Check out this link to our PoLwiki to see the Hall map and if you scroll down it the list of locations, including the Grimmerzhul Trading Post.

Lastly, thanks Emily for engaging the NPC's in your party investigations. You've been doing so consistently. When the players do that it allows me to make the world more alive, give you background/world history, and set things up for future adventures.

Exhausted, Edeya asks Erra Halfmoon to prepare your rooms for the night and soon after each of you is fast asleep, barely aware of Benniks singing voice drifting up from the floor below. Most of you sleep the deserved sleep of adventurers who know you have done some good by rescuing Susana Wrafton. Edeya however, tosses and turns for a couple hours, her thoughts and dreams roaming between her previous blackout moments and the words spoken to her by Terrlen Darkseeker. She does eventually find the inner peace for sleep, but upon awakening finds a few more hours would have done her good (1 surge used up).

The others are already up and waiting for Edeya to come down and eat breakfast with them. The inn's common room is nigh empty, save for a couple of the Hall's inhabitants. Erra Halfmoon is tending the bar. A serving woman brings your food and drink. Edeya and Azad turn in surprise when they see that Susana Wrafton is the one serving them. She greets all of you with a warm smile. Although her bruises and welts are still visible in many places, her spirits have clearly risen. She explains that Erra has agreed to let her help out in exhange for lodging and how she intends to stay here in the Hall until you've found the rest of the Winterhavians.

Refreshed, cleaned, and fed, Lights Shadows are ready for what is to come and head out of the Halfmoon Inn.

OOC: Where to next? Directly to the Grimmerzhul Trading Post? If so, will you simply walk in or anything else? Alternatively, using the link provided earlier, is there anywhere else in the Hall you'd like to go first?

Unsettled by yesterday's conversation with the Ordinator, Edeya is nonetheless ready to tackle the slavers.

OOC: Ready to go.

Corydimbiddle stays in the back eager to rescue Anna.

OOC: The gnome wants to go ASAP. Sorry, Viktor, the lack of posts. Four more weeks until I can be decently involved in the storyline again.

The adventure continues here. I'm breaking it up into more manageable threads.

OOC: No worries Josh, I know how your Summers are.
