Sharn: The Cauldron

Episode 8 & 9

Kal and Talyn hire a boat to go out to the center of the harbour to check out the wreck of the Arrowhead. Seanus agrees to stay in the boat while they drink the potions of waterbreathing and swim down. They quickly find the wreck and must deal with two Sahuagin that attack.

After they have done that, they investigate the wreck to discover it’s been ransacked. They swim underwater and follow the trail of detrius and flotsom to an underwater cave. In the cave they fight a giant crab and uncover a bandolier of potions which Kal determines are healing potions. They continue down the cavern and the water becomes shallower.

Bah Mole finds them and follows them to investigate the cavern. Using Speak with Animals, he talks to a fish and a bat and discovers that there are other entrances into the cavern and that groups of humanoids have been carrying things into the cavern.

They notice some dim torchlight and proceed. Talyn casts predigitation on Bah Mole’s spear causing it to be very reflective and shiney allowing him to use it as a mirror and see inside the cavern.

Meanwhile, Nysra Iradi awakes. She realizes she has been bound with someone behind her. She is unaware of where she is or how she got there. Looking around, she realizes she is in an underground cavern. Nysra wakes up the person behind her who turns out to be an elf named Perry.

Bah Mole sees these two in the reflection but cannot clearly see that they are bound. He steps around the corner and casts entangle on the area. The spell manages to also capture two humans and a Sahuagin on the far end of the cavern. They disarm the humans and Sauhagin. Upon dismissing the entangle, the Sahaugin attempts to escape. Talyn casts daze and stops the Sahaugin. Behind the two humans is a bag with Nysra and Perry’s weapons along with two greatcoats.

The party also notices that the crystal coffin IS there but it is empty.

The humans reveal the following information
  1. Their names are Carleynn and Aravyre
  2. They were purchasing the salvage from the Sahuagin
  3. Their boss, “Castar” told them to “Dispose” of Nysra and Perry because he thought they were “snooping around”.

The Sahuagin regains his senses and starts panicking and worrying about the “Demon girl”. He reveals that he saw her rise out of the coffin holding something in her hand.

The party leaves them tied up, but leaves them means to escape if they promise to say that Nysra and Perry were “drowned”. The two captives tell the party that the stairs lead up into the Mud Caves district.

They track steps from the crystal coffin to another side cave where they find a half-orc (about 3/4 human) named “Linele” who claims to be Linech’s daughter. She has no memory of how she got there but has a vague recollection of flames. Her skin is extremely pale and Bah Mole smells “death” around her.

They discuss how to “safely lead her out”. She asks for some food as she is very hungry but everything they offer her, she spits out in disgust. Talyn and Nysra decide to go ahead and get Linech while the rest of the party leads Linele out.

Taylen explains to Linech what happened to Linele. Linech demands that they show her to him.

The rest of the party gets to the outer parts of the Mud Caves shanty town and realize that due to the sunlight, Linele cannot proceed out. Bah Mole fakes and injury to buy time.

Talyn , Nysra, Linech , and Abbercombe return to the mud caves. Linech is horrified, and reveals that his daughter had been killed by his enemies. Linele “vamps out” and attacks him. The party fights and Talyn and Nysra entangle Linele and tie the other end to Linech’s cab. Linech runs to the cab. Talyn , Nysra , and Linech order the cab to leave – pulling Linele into the sunlight. She burns up immediately.

Before leaving, Abbercombe points out a gold fob watch that Linele dropped.

The party realizes that the watch is incredibly magical and very evil. They bring the watch to the Cathedral of the Cleansing Flame for Archierophant Y’Thana Morr to deal with. Perry realizes that she is the clergy he is to report to. She advises him to return the next day for his “briefing”.

The party visits Linech and he rewards them with the remaining gold he owed them. They tell him about the fob watch they found.

The party then decides to report back to Hruit so that he is aware of the situation.
