Lan nods to the captain. "Glad to be of help Captain Saj Kalaes. My name is Lan. Any word of Lord Major Bren Ir'Gadden? It was at his request that we attended the remembrance ceremony."

"The Lord Major is in Wroat at the moment. My guess is that Mr. Blacktree is the one that invited you. I would like to discuss with you some of the events, though. I have eyewitnesses accounts discussing your bravery on a rooftop fighting some sort of a Mournland demon. And then more eyewitnesses say you went searched for the origin for a while before coming upon Mr. Blacktree's home. Then you were picked up by the skycoach. And then we have some accounts of a battle with Mr. Blacktree. Is there anything you would like to fill in?"

OOC: You guys will get an extended rest soon (as long as you don't pick a fight with these guys, I guess. Captain Kalaes will be an important NPC in the next adventure, so feel free to roleplay/roll play your interactions with him. On Wednesday, I will probably start the new adventure thread.

"In Wroat? It seems Mr. Blacktree likely did send us a false invitation under the Lord Major's name. I wonder if he also did the same for all the other guests and made up the remembrance ceremony just to lure all the guests there. As for our bravery, I'm afraid we were not able to save several of the guests on the rooftop. The demon was too quick. As for the rest, it's more or less as you've heard. We went in search of the origin of the demon and came upon mr. Blactree's home. Hearing strange mechanical noises and feeling the ground rumble, we went inside fearing the house and neighboring buildings might explode. We fought some hired mercenaries inside and then deactivated a strange machine upstairs, which was being manipulated by an aberration. As we left the home, Pilot Ged picked us up with the sailship and on our way we were attacked by Mr. Blacktree and some goblins on soarsleds. Although we tried questioning him, Mr. Blacktree did not reveal his true motives to us." says Lan, outlining the day's events. He decides to gloss over the breaking and entering aspect, coating in a good samaritan description. He also chooses not to reveal anything about the dragon prophecy that Blacktree and Sentinel both seem to know about.

1d20+10+1=28 Bluff roll

OOC: Don't know if we have anything to hide, but just in case. BTW, Josh, if you haven't already can you list our spoils in the wiki. I think we found some gold on the enemies throughout, but can't remember how much.

OOC: I think all the gold is listed, but that the items are not really, yet. I'll make sure later.

"Wait a moment. If we weren't invited by Bren, was anyone invited by Bren? I thought the demon was after us. What if it was sent to kill everyone at the party? Did Blacktree invite everyone?"

Insight roll on Blacktree and the party invitations. (1d20+2+1=17)
Sentinel also ponders the makeup of the hires Blacktree had at his residence.
Dungeoneering, history, and streetwise knowledge checks upon goblin cutters at Blacktree's residence. How common are they in Sharn, how freely can goblins move though the city, and other pertinent information on their possible tribes, why hired, etc. (1d20+2+1=23, 1d20+9+1=17, 1d20+1=19)
OOC: nat 20 dungeoneering. Sentinel likes his 20s 8)
Arcana, history, religion, streetwise knowledge checks for the Red Jackal Razorclaws. What are they, how/why is their hair dyed, tribal connections, religious practices, etc. (1d20+10+1=27, 1d20+9+1=28, 1d20+9+1=15, 1d20+1=16)

"I cannot answer why he did what he did until we proceed with a more thorough information. Now, if you will excuse us, we would like to proceed with that. Again, thank you for your service."

Sentinel cannot infer from looking at him whether Blacktree invited the other guests, but he does know that the four of them were specifically targeted by the demon.

Sentinel also knows from his time in Sharn that goblins are extremely common and are often hired as mercenaries throughout Khorvaire. These particular goblins had no discernible affiliation.

Sentinel also thinks about a little about the shifters and he remembers reading a story in The Korranberg Chronicle that detailed the Red Jackal clan. It is a clan of half-orcs and shifters that live in the sewers below Sharn. He knows that they are violent and a particularly big clan, that survives by rummaging through trash and waste that passes through their home territory, while also raiding other clans.

Captain Kalaes starts to walk away before turning around, "As the primary witnesses, I hope you will stay in Sharn for a few days while we finish the investigation." His emphasis makes clear to all of you that it is not really a hope, but a command. Captain Kalaes finishes walking away.

Leaning in towards Kurvilis, Sentinel replies, "Indeed."

"Well, as a citizen of Zilargo, I'm not exactly keen on taking orders from a Sharn official. Still, it might be best if we extended our stay until this gets resolved, Kurvilis. At a minimum, we should rush a report about that machine to the Library. They might find it interesting. Khav, Lan, where are you staying?"

Not willing to let the three know where he lives yet, after all he's only met them twice in four years, Lan says. "I live in this city actually, but think it might be good for us to stay together for now. In case there's another attack. I'll stay wherever you're staying."

"That will be up to Kurvilis. I just sit in the bathroom at night and read so the light doesn't bother him. We might be able to get an additional cot into the inn room, but things will be tight. We've been traveling while I interview warforged for the book I'm preparing. It's a long tale, but the city I have chosen as my residence, Korranberg , requires several years of work at the Library. They have decided I'm a special case, and I'm on assignment studying my race in the aftermath of the peace treaty.

That reminds me, I was about to tell you something before the haunt arrived. This,
"
Sentinel says with a flourish, unveiling a set of common traveling papers, "shows that I'm an actual citizen of Zilargo. I might be their first warforged citizen, though it's hard to say." The pride in his voice is hard to miss. "Imagine that, effective slave to full citizen. I've heard that a letter I wrote to the Korranberg Chronicle actually inspired a few warforged to move to Zilargo.

Back to living arrangements. Khav, perhaps you have more spacious accommodations?"

"Well, if it will be to tight, then we can simply split up and meet again in the morning or another day. If you tell me where you're staying, I should be able to find you." says Lan as he takes a close look at the papers that Sentinel is presenting. "I must say this is wonderful news. Congratulations. I've been somewhat fascinated with warforged since we met four years ago since you are the only beings I know of that don't dream. Fascinating."

OOC: I guess nothing new will be happening until Friday, so our PC's could just go their separate ways until then.

OOC: You can continue talking here for the same day, but when you want to move to the next day, go to the next thread.

OOC: I'm fine to move on. We actually cross-posted and I didn't see the new thread.

OOC: Sounds good. Sentinel would be eager to divulge the location of his accommodations. I don't know if Kurvilis would be, but Sentinel doesn't have duplicity down yet.
