The Trek to Old Korvosa
The party was asked to find the hero Vin Carlo who was last seen in Old Korvosa. As we entered the city torn apart by anarchy and disease we were waylaid by a group of ruffians who were attracted by our shiny arms and armor. The blackguards were persuaded to disengage their unbidden attack by Leopold’s boisterous cajoling, though he suspects that when he and Kyhrin freed two of the bandits of their lives it helped our case.

Other highlights:
-Went to Vin Carlos’s home where we stopped it from being burned to the ground by two zealots of the Mantis cult. Discovered that Khyrin had no compunctions against torture, also Chovan found a locked silver box in a hidden compartment.

Amen Gelento, a student of Vin’s pointed us to someone who may know the whereabouts of the vigilante. We were persuaded to find the artist, Salvador Scream. We also learned of a madman who calls himself the Emperor of Old Korvosa. He is known to butcher innocents and engage in cannibalism.

We are able to locate Scream’s home where we encounter an adherent of the God of Torture, Zon-Kuthorn. After negotiating with her, we decide to join forces to track Scream down. As we head out the door to track Scream down at the “Emperor’s” domicile, we are attacked by three nasty otyughs.

Hightlights of last adventure
1. The group was introduced to a new NPC whose main job was to enlarge himself and smash things. Coldan Hammerbrains or something.
2. We were bade to search for Ven Carlo and the Seneschal, the latter because it is thought that he could assist in deposing The Bitch Queen.
3. To this end, we agreed to search the ….something creepy name labyrinth.
4. We overcame plant skeletons and fungal spores.
5. Also a strange 4 armed creature who had monk abilities.
6. Oh there was a puzzle in the form of a shifting room and levers. Also there were glyphs that caused intense pain and insanity.
7. Callisto, sadly enough, went insane. She was reduced to a babbling idiot, which was funny until we had to face the big boss.
8. Who was an identical match to Vin Carlo, whom we found.
9. But was really a fox headed woman who could fly and was really really hard to hit.
10. Leopold remembered that if he coaxed his magic sword it (and he) would also enlarge.

Although we only had one session at level 8, we gained enough experience to level to 9. Which you know, is awesome.

Loots: We got a ring of evasion which we were going to give to Khyrin, except none of us remembered that being a swashbuckler gives him evasion already so it’s going to Callisto.
