The magic gripping Allison Kheedon had turned her into a feral monster. Encased in darkness, Sarin fought with the creature within her for several rounds. Luckily the rest of the group heard what was going on and came to his rescue. Allison was grappled to the floor and knocked unconcious. When she was woken, the rest of the party was exploring another hidden room. Sarin and Ziri became trying to talk with ALlison but both could only make out bits and pieces of an ancinet langauage. The best they could tell, she was asking to be set free.
The hidden room contained a deadly swarm of metal eating wasps intent on destroying the contents of a steel chest should anyone trigger that trap that let them free. By the end of the battle Hammesh was naked so his gear would not be destroyed and Sarin had managed to electrocute the swarm to death. Within the chest They found a strange blue potions whose contents swirled within the top section of the vial leaving the bottom empty. A triple dose of a strange drug called Crystal Clear, and a Liber Mechanika et Nicolai Rathel. Clearly, he left in a hurry to have left it behind.
During all the commotion, the two captured brutes from the Sharde islands managed to escape. An Inspector Risely with several soldiers stumbled upon the party. After a strange look at Valdross, he simply let the party continue with there business. Finding the behavior strange he was questioned and simply revealed that Valdross had been in the city on other business, additionally, that he figured the group had all ready been hired by ruler of the city Duke Kieton Ebonhart IV since they were associated with Valdross. The group later recieved a reward from the Kheedon family in the amount of 50 gp each. From Nicolai’s mechakina equipment Valdross discovered a thin gold chain (20 inches), worth approximately 10gp.
The party discovers that Nicolai was secretly building another smaller airship on the roof of his laboratory. The group discovers the plans to an airship that was titled, “the Hopper”. These plans are turned into the military barracks. Hammesh gets aquainted with the trollkin community in Corvis and meets the mysterious Shaman who got him involved in this quest. The shaman bestows upon Hammesh healing for free. He warns Hammesh not to tell him of his findings, that this quest is for one trollkin only and that is Hammesh.
So ends the day and part of the night of Malleus 5th.
