The last man was to be found in a long forgotten temple beneath the city. By now, the group of adventurers were realizing that the world of today was built upon the bones of the world of yesterday. What other secrets were built upon, what other treasures served as the backbone of the city? Questions that will be unanswered, for now anyhow.
Using all of their survival skills, they found their way to the sewers below. They worked their way through tunnels filled with filth and refuse from the city above. They ran across two lookouts that attacked them quickly and began to run away to alert their reinforcements. Unwise, the adventurers chased them down and ran right into an ambush. Although they survived the ambush, they were too weak to go any further and had to retreat to heal up and get supplies.
The next day, they tried again but were again victorious, but at too high a cost. Not wanting to endanger themselves any further, they retreated and went to Fiona’s guild for help. They were going to go down again tomorrow and make sure that they could finish the job.
That night, there was riot on the streets as a bunch of warriors apparently went berserk and assaulted the town. The streets ran red with blood of innocents and aggressors. It took most of the night and more of the Watch than people were comfortable with, but order was eventually restored. No one knows what made these helpful and friendly fighters suddenly turn on the city and attack. It was a mystery that was about to be solved.
So, taking the guild with them, the adventurers went into the sewers once more. Strangely, there was no fight this time. Cautious they approached the old temple and entered. It was abandoned except for some barrels with with a strange black powder. After some investigation, it turned out that some of the lizard folk used an ancient technique, and corrupted it.
An old practice that some warriors had was to inhale incense to get prepared for war. It turns out, some found a way to add this substance, black blood, to the incense to sap people’s will. The temple’s old fireplace lead right up to some barracks, the same barracks that held the warriors from the previous night’s raid. Sadly, the massacre was never their fault, but the deeds of those evil lizard folk. With nothing more to be done except report the crime, it was time to activate the construct.
Once activated, the construct said that there was one more to activate. This time it told them to meet at Eigenvector’s mansion. It was time to reveal Eigenvector’s legacy.
