Last time
Right after opening the door to the recently under new management Xanathar base, you were face to face with the city watch. With your swords still drawn you didn't look to innocent. However the captain Hyustus Staget took a liking to you as you made his job easier. He pointed you in the direction of a nearby sewer base were they saw Floon being dragged, and said he would look the other way if you were to take care of it for him. During your trip the party was able to take 4 prisoners, kill some intellect devourers, a tiny beholder thing, and a half orc who you know as boss. In addition a mind flayer named Nihiloor got away, but you got Floon so that's what really matters. When you got back to the hotel you questioned Renaer Neverember about why he was in Waterdeep. He told you outside of meeting with friends he was here to get the stone of Golorr which holds the memory of where the now exiled open lord is hiding 500,000 gold pieces (sorry I got the number wrong during our last session).  The stone is currently in the hands of Nihiloor. When you brought Floon to Volo he says he doesn't have the money but gives you a three story manor in a great area called Trollskull Alley. The party who was there excepted the deal, and next time you will all pick your rooms. The last thing I should mention is you all level up! Go through a standard 5e level up; if you have any questions we can talk about them at the next meeting.

The Fall of Vannik
The party prepared all week on how to implicate Vannik at Corbin’s 50th birthday celebration. We decided to have the Tears of Ilthmar planted on Vannik as well as a forged note. With all the details worked out, we looked forward to implementing our devious designs.

Among the guests in attendance of the celebration were the Cordovnas, Skurlockes, and Vannik who arrived with his manservant Anga.

Lysa gives an amazing performance. A Metleen merchant offers to be a patron of the Orphans theater. Lysa is a little dismissive, but the Metleen is persistent and asks to meet up with her for lunch in a few days to discuss details. Too bad Ricky wasn’t there to enjoy all of this!

Right on que, the orphans caused a distraction while Yorabba planted the Tears of Ilthmar on an unsuspecting Vannik. Tyla implicates Vannik with a forged note that he “found” at Vannik’s feet. The guards were called to search Vannik. Vannik, with a look of confusion and desperation, reached into his pocket, seized the vial, and drank it. He changes into a rat and fled with Yorabba giving chase. Could Vannik be fleeing to the sewers to find the lost tome of which he spoke of earlier?

A party member turns into a ape-shark hybrid who begins attacking other guests. Margon killed it, but four more appeared. One of the braziers for the celebration was spewing green smoky fog. Those celebrants caught in the fog were temporarily changed into beasts. These beasts charged towards the orphans’ stage. Through our bravery, and a bit of luck, the beasts were repelled. Some lived to turn back into decent folk, others were not so lucky.

Tears of Ilthmar
Storvin Skurlocke the grain merchant is Rafe’s father. Rafe’s older Brother is named Caden. Storvin says the wine merchant Corbin is very successful. It is Corbin’s 50th birthday and there will be a celebration in his honor. Storvin’s family will be providing security. Caden is working with the Slayers guild to provide security. Storvin wants Rafe to assemble a team to troubleshoot any incidents that happen at the event. Storvin does not look highly upon Vannik and would be happy to see him go. Vannik is older and without heirs. He has a manservant named Anga. Vannik once told us there might be a powerful tome hidden somewhere under the city of Lankhmar. Storvin says Baron Cordovna has issued a curse to undermine Rafe’s family.

Rafe and Genet arrive at the Harry Cod and find the group in heated discussion about events with the Peat Cutters Guild. Rafe notices a comely woman alone at the bar. He buys her a drink and tries a pick up line. She rushes out of the bar without a word. Her hair remindes Rafe of the styles of Ilthmar. Rafe notices that she was armed and lacking of any other distinguishing characteristics.

Vial of “Tears of the Gods”. Allows the drinker to take on the aspects of a god when consumed. The vile has the symbol of the Rat King. It is to be delivered to Vannik the grain merchant.

We leave the Harry Cod. Genet goes first. Tyla, Margon, and Flossin leave next, pretending to be drunk. Rafe follows behind. We are all looking to see if we are being followed. Flossin ducks into the alley to pretend relieving himself. The mysterious woman attacks. Rafe castes a spell to make us all look like rats. This startles her and we overcome her with fists and honeyed tongued persuasion. She tells us the Tears of Ilthmar were stolen. She killed the person who stole them but the tears were already passed on to us. The tears originated in Ilthmar. Her (Yorabba’s) mission was to return the tears to Ilthmar. We hatch a plan to use the tears at the upcoming birthday party to implicate Vannik. Yorabba reluctantly agrees to help on condition we return the tears to her after the party. Rafe offers to provide room and board for her until our mission is completed. Flossin gives the tears to Genet for safe keeping. Genet suggests they both carry an extra glass vial on their person. The extra vials could be broken, inside of pockets, to suggest the vial of tears is broken and no longer available to be returned to Ilthmar.

Ruminations #6: Sob's Story
After spending the week at the Golden Theater, it was clear to Lysa and I that the best way for me to protect her and the other performers would be for me to be discrete. If I was hidden with the players I would have a better chance of identifying a threat and stopping it. And there was already plenty of muscle around deterring the every day criminals. Therefore at the party, I was dressed as a stage hand and I worked the crowds and kept an eye on things. And wasn't Lysa's performance breathtaking!!!

Then, when Vannik's treachery was outed and I heard Tyla calling for the guards, I came as quickly as I was able. I was on the edge of the crowd when Vannik became a rat, jumped into the sewer, and Yorrabba chased off after him. I knew that Billy was with Lysa and the performers so I "chased" off after Yorrabba to help her if I could.

Unfortunately, due to her skills and speed and my bum leg, I lost her. When I finally returned to the festival grounds, I found out about the mist and the monsters. Lysa had also returned to her quarter's for safety.

I am fairly certain that the great Cephlapod in the sea was in part responsible for tonights chaos and I am thrilled that all of you made it through safely! You are truly blessed!
