We last left off at Cressida Croft’s room she gave us to manage our crew. She has given each member a tin star that says “Deputy of Corvosa, In Her Majesty’s Secret Service”.
We re-read the mission given to us by Cressida:
“ Heroes of your caliber are what we need. We will be well compensated for providing our services. Many guards have deserted their posts. Some to take care of family, and some using the riots for personal gain. One in specific is Verik Van Caskerkan. He has gathered a group of guards and they have all deserted. She can’t pull anyone off to deal with him and doesn’t want any other guards to kill him or get infected by him. She wants us to deal with him. Him and his followers are in an abandoned butcher shop in Northgate called “all the worlds meat”. Capture him alive and return for interrogation, but if he makes it impossible, bring his body. Find out why he has deserted. $500 gold reward if returned alive, $250 if dead”.
We walk out of the fishery and notice something is on fire. It’s around midnight. We have been at the fishery since sundown. We see a thing in the street in front of us, shambling at 20ft per round.
Mike, who is running Enab, says “I am not going to be one running Aryeh’s fucking character while he is in what the fuck, Slovakia, and get him fucking killed”. Spax deferred running Enab to Ian who is taking notes so it was deferred to Mike.
It comes toward Enab saying “Enab, Enab, it was you!” Lando gets the sense the creature is happy, but smells revolting. He realizes the creature is grateful to Enab, doesn’t mean him any harm. BJS backs away from the creature and protects the children. We realize it’s a creature from the sewers and knows Enab.
Slade and Saul start by the door on the bottom floor by the water. Saul whips the doorknob and bends/weakens it. He then kicks it and snaps the door knob off.
Out on the walkway, Enab runs into Hookshanks and asks him where is Gaedren Lamm. Hook says downstairs. Hook gives Enab a small Iron key. He says there are no magic or traps within.
Plans to infiltrate are discussed. Lando will send in the honey badger and run in asking if anyone has seen it. Then send in Slade and Enab in saying that Slade is sick from Wharf Tendies and wants a refund. He will throw up to distract them, supported by Slade.
Saul & Celphyx will stay in reserve and cast Guidance and Inspire Performance/Message to boost them going in and stay in communication. Then they will enter once it’s clear.
After all the planning, we put the plan into action and the building is completely locked up, with no one around. The GM is a completel dick.
We walk around the building and scout it out. Slade and Enab keep up the pretense and scout around the building. We cant find a way in after scouting the building. We find a large abandoned boat up against the building. After scouting it again we decide to light it on fire in order to drive them out.
We all wake up underground around 6am and find that we have all received different written note messages.
“I know what Gaedren Lamm has done to you. He has wronged me as well. I know where he dwells, yet cannot strike at him. Come to my home at 3 Lancet St one hour before sunset. Gaedrenn must face his fate, and justice must be done.”

We head to the main lair of the rat folk. We find one guy who seems to be at the center, the most blinged out of all individuals.
We converse with the rat king and find out that he sent out Enab in order to put this plan in motion and help him find the party to help. The King agrees to the plan. Saul asks him to keep an eye out for any pearl shaped objects.
The Rat King provides us with a spot to wait, in comfortable quarters. He provides Rat D’oiverse for us to enjoy. Many spiders move through the room and other creatures move by.
