“And who would be the person to talk to if one would be interested in acquiring sufficient amounts of this deepjuice?” Azlanek asks, already ordering in his mind to examine each and every wall in that vault closely. Maybe he could come by a map of the sewer system. There had to be another entrance. To be safe, he would also order to watch the guards that stood watch before its doors very closely.

Zakariya shrugged. As far as I know most members of Singal's alchemists guild have given up producing it. The process eats to many apprentices and the sewers are dangerous... If milord wishes, I can inquire about this at the next guild meeting in a few days' time, with the appropriate discretion of course.

[OOC: What would you be examining in particular in the vault?]

“This will not be required. Just tell me in what surroundings this fungi would flourish and what the most sought after spots were during your days. We will investigate this ourselves. I would be grateful if you kept an a ear open on the streets. I will make It worth your while.”

With that Azlanek reaches into a purse resting on his table and conjures three gold pieces, which he hands to Zakariya.


[OOC:]The stonework. I want each brick pushed, pulled and searched for lever-constructions or other mechanisms. I want them checked whether any of them is loosened. I want the entire walls tapped in case of hollow passageways.

I am assuming the vault is rather empty. Should there are barrels or other items I want them removed for the search. I hope I don't have to talk about carpets.

Should this get no results, I want the ground and ceiling searched as well.

As I already mentioned, they are found in the sewers, milord. They seem to prefer darkness and humid environments and as far as I know they glow faintly. I will do as you wish and inform you of anything useful I happen to hear.

He grabbed his coins and left the room, while Ardashir Naflaqi looked to Azlanek expectantly.

"The same goes for you," Azlanek speaks, turning to the other man. "I am grateful for the service you have done for my order, especially on such short notice."

He gives Ardashir Naflaqi three gold pieces as well.

"Should you come across anything that would be of interest to us, please let us know. May Astraea protect you."

Ardashir smiles and bows before leaving.

Shortly after that a squire enters.

Milord, we thoroughly examined the whole vault, but there was no secret door to be found. The walls are massive and without any cavities or hidden openings. The ceiling is just below the floor of our kitchen and showed no signs of damage. Only the floor revealed something. The drain in the middle of the vault is covered by an iron grid. The hole itself may be broad enough for a slim person and the grid apparently has been moved recently as it's edges showed no moss as did the rest of the room.

The works at your chapterhouse-to-be have reached their final stage. With the two greedy merchants dead, their heir vanished and the other merchants all too eager to finally conclude contracts with the Eventide no more obstacles remain to convert the square into a training ground for your knights and auxiliaries. However, to enact the necessary repairs on the derelict manor 2000 denari are needed to buy the timber and stone as well as 1000 denari to pay the appropriately qualified carpenters and masons.

A hooded messenger arrived at the chapter house, demanding to speak to Lord Azlanek. His clothing was of an intense black and displayed a strange symbol: A blackened sun with only a faint golden rim surrounded by red and black.

Before he is allowed in, the guards will demand to know who the messanger was, and who had sent him.

My name is of no importance, said the hooded man, and the Crippled Sun does not ASK for entrance. If Lord Azlanek does not wish to speak to me, my master will take this as a sufficient answer.

The guards exchange puzzled looks, then bid the messenger to wait while they informed Lord Azlanek of his arrival, so that the lord himself could decide. A couple of minutes later, he is finally allowed in, and led into the grandmaster's office, where Lord Azlanek already waited.

"Welcome to my humble home. You must have made quite an impression on the guards. It is rarely that our order is approached with such an amount of confidence. I am curious what provides you with this kind of courage. Now, what message do you bring?"

My master has closely followed your order's exploits in this part of the city and thinks it is time for you to play an appropriate role. Therefore we have prepared an eighth seat and expect you at the council palace in two days' time, at nightfall.

Without waiting for any further answer the man turned and left the room.

Some time after the Eventide envoys had returned from the council at Sarleon a cloaked man with a familiar symbol on his clothing entered the entrance hall of the chapterhouse and demanded to speak to the grandmaster or any authorised representaive.

Impatiently he walked up and down the hall while waiting.

A man in a dark leather tabard, unmarked, strode into the hall silently. His eyes focused on the man with the symbol on his chest, and walked toward him.

"Greetings, cripple of the sun. I am Ser Varys, Knight-Commander of the Eventide. I've been informed that you wish to speak with me?"

The man commented the mocking name given to him with but a raised eye-brow and said.

Yes, the Crippled Sun wishes for more thorough information on what has transpired in the council sessions, especially about the sessions in which the issue of a Free City has been discussed. For a detailed witness account my master would be willing to pay a considerable sum, one, maybe two thousand denars.

Varys smiled.


"Scribe."

A man walked out of the shadows, and presented a heavy envelope to Varys.

Varys took the envelope, and turned to face the man.

"Unfortunately, our scribe only captured all that has went down after the Free City issue. I will personally tell you about what happened before."

The envelope was filled with the written recording of what had occurred in the council room; minus a few incriminating remarks by the Eventide. (OOC: Where Varys talks about how he could take care of the Shadow)

Varys turned and told the man, "The vote for the Free City went the way of Nal Tar. We decided on limiting the expansion of the Silvermist hegemony, which has enveloped the Legion. They voted for Marleons, to increase their power, while the Dawn voted for Javikshlom. The eventide, gauntlet, griffon, and dragon all cast their vote in favor of Nal Tar. Constable Iskar was pushing for Marleons, while the Dawn wanted to increase their own power. Was there anything else concerning the Free Cities that you wished to add?

Do you know why they voted for Marleons or Javiksholm considering the nature of the respective dukes and in case of Javiksholm their ... relation to them?

Then a frown appeared on his otherwise neutral face.

And another question has just occured to me: Singal has fared very well in the past as the single Free City. Why would your order vote to install a rival free city so close to us?

"To make it a far simpler job for you and yours to expand your influence over the Shavanir"

Celdiur leant against the bannister at the top of the staircase. By chance he happened to be in the right place at the right time and had listened eagerly to the exhange. Now that they were aware of his presence, he began a slow walk down the staircase.

"Your master asked of us to provide opportunities for the betterment of...particular individuals. We provided that in the form of another Free City, ripe for the taking. And you were lucky to get that. The other Orders were stubborn like that"

Celdiur stood now by Varys' side, his arms crossed and his brow furrowed. He made no effort to hide his unfavourable feelings toward the messenger.

Ripe for the taking, eh? A ducal capital with a man as ambitious as Hamid and full of scorpion assassins? I shall inform my master of your notion of "ripe for the taking", but back to my first question.

Varys frowned and said " Answering your first question would require a lot of guess work. I believe the Dawn wanted to expand their influence over Javikshlom. The Dawn wanted to strip the Lord of Javikshlom of power. The Silvermist wanted to take away the lord's power in Marleons as well."

"Oh? Do I perhaps sense...fear?"

Celdiur's tone was openly mocking.

"I would have thought that the Crippled Sun would have welcomed such a challenge, and an opportunity. The Scorpions...are a problem, though one that could be turned into a valuable asset by any who have the balls to attempt to bring them to heel. Take them out of the picture, and I could imagine that Duke Hamid would be a far simpler obstacle to work around. And besides which, we too had to benefit, not just you. Keeping a Free City out of the hands of our rivals is benefit enough"

Celdiur frowned in thought.

"The Javiksholm issue is easy enough to decipher. The Dawn simply wanted more power for themselves. Marleons however...well your guess is as good as mine. I could not place my finger upon a solid motive for the Silvermists wanting free city status given to Marleons"

Very well, I will pass all information to my master. Appropriate payment will be made soon.

Without expecting an answer he whirled around and left in a flurry of dark cloth.

The next day a messenger wordlessly handed a bag to one of the guards at the chapter house. The crippled sun was embroidered on it and it contained 1000 denars in gold.
