The Story So Far...

"All eyes will be on Cauldron. We'll have their worst fears to toy with."
Godsday, 11th of Goodmonth, 594 CY === Dark Night Having just explored the Ruins of Karran-Kural, the heroes enjoyed some down time while catching up on rumors before being invited to meet with the leader of the local chapter of the Striders of Fharlanghn; one Meerthan Eliothlorn, at the Drunken Morkoth Inn. Meerthan needed their help rescuing Fario Ellegoth, an agent who was captured while spying on House Rhiavadi from a Last Laugh safe house before he cracked under interrogation and revealed the extent of the Striders' activities in Cauldron. Jil Torturing Fario The Last Laugh's safe house was an abandoned inn called the Brass Trumpet, its windows borded up and its rooms sparsely populated by thieves and brigands baring their secretive lucre, coins marked with the silhouette of a jester. One secret passage after another led to a black-clad figure: Jil, a respected member of the Last Laugh, who had whipped her helpless captive into near unconsciousness; however, the following act of slitting Fario's throat sealed her own doom as the heroes wasted no time in ending her. His life narrowly saved, Fario told them everything he knew about Lady Rhiavadi and her estate, an imperious structure that had seen numerous dark denizens, including half-orc mercenaries hired by Lord Vhalantru, enter and leave the manor at all hours of the day and night, some heading straight to House Vhalantru after leaving House Rhiavadi, while some stayed inside for hours. Thifirane Rhiavadi herself had not been seen entering or leaving her house in weeks, but she was known to have had several shady guests staying at her manor. One such visitor was a comely yet pale half-elf clad in scant, tight-fitting black garments, arriving at House Rhiavadi the previous night by horse-drawn coach, wearing a cloak of black shadow that fluttered about her, even though the night air was still. A band of well-armed humans---perhaps mercenaries or adventurers---arrived two days before; one of them carried a black mace capped with an iron skull and a heavy shield emblazoned with the symbol of Nerull. Lady Rhiavadi's other guests included a contingent of five well-armed dwarves who arrived three days before, one of them a white-haired, white-beareded gregarious fellow wearing a black, leather half-mask that covered his right eye, a black gem set into the mask's eye socket---identified as Adrick Garthûn, the gold-toothed owner of a successful importing agency who was an otherwise common sight at the Cusp of Sunrise dining club.
Watersday, 12th of Goodmonth, 594 CY Knocking on the front doors of House Rhiavadi produced two hulking half-orc guards, one opening the door and attempting to frighten the heroes off, saying only that the lady wasn't interested in anything they had to offer; however, the dim guard was easily swayed by the scintillating words of the more charismatic individuals of the party, the lustrously-dressed sorceress convincing him that they were late guests, emissaries in service to Lord Vhalantru, while the black-clothed bard was intent on providing the estate with a performance that would most certainly bring the house down.
