The recent shed of Mana Oil in your last battle had Arcanist Folork in a huff. He gradually begin to lose his patience with the party as some of them showed an increasing amount of disregard for the books in the library. Before he lead you down into the library’s scroll storage room, he explained that the suits of Animated Armor that attacked you typically attack Enemies of the City — a distinction typically reserved for the most dangerous of Corvale’s criminal population. He tried to provide a cursory explanation as to how it’s possible, but outside of being related to the Elder of Corvale’s discretion, even he did not know precisely how the statues determined their targets. The entire scene had him so distracted that he never even stopped to think that many in the party are currently listed as Enemies of the City,
Folork’s encroached on his fit to such an extent that he didn’t notice Aiko steal a scroll of Jump or Dio Make off with a collection of books, one of which containing a thin rectangular gem. She received a vision when she touched it — she saw herself flying away rapidly from what appeared to be a web. Dio later learned that at least one of the books contained information on The Elemental Plane of Air, his home. The gem, aside from being thin and transparent and catching the eye of our resident thief, is thus far unremarkable.
The party received scrolls of Fabricate from the library, as they were asked by the Townsguard outside of the Town Hall. On their way back to the site of the repairs, Jamster revealed that his newly-found spellbook came with a voice: The voice of Ignamus Ignamus has been guiding Jamster in small ways over the past few hours. To his dismay, he found that only he could hear the voice.
The party used the repairs on the Town Hall as a way to plant the devices given to them by the person they believe to be Frath Starag — as of this moment, the Mysterious Box remains under the chair inside the building so that the Old Man could presumably spy on the Elder. Various antics ensued; but the party managed to plant the devices with only one carelessly dropped and broken!
The Party was then approached by a robed Elven woman who introduced herself as Aero who came to thank the party for their efforts. she also handed the party Strange Coins bearing a unique sigil — that of The Shadow of the Divide. Not much is known about this organization. According to some, they are the Hidden Heroes of Corvale. To others, they are its greatest threat. At any rate, they seem to be able to bring the dead back to life: Something is amiss here.
Aero told you that the devices would need a week’s time before they could be used. this is just as well — coincidentally, Malark Sum is set to give an address to the people in The Divide’s Town Square in that precise amount of time, to usher in the season of Earthrain as is tradition. Aero assures you that things are going to explode, when the time is right. She advised you to prepare.
How will the party spend their week?
