Presenting the feather of a low level demon and bathing it in the blood of Kirayna, the party proceeded into the city of Plague-Mort. Each wore a mask that revealed an aspect of their being, as per the traditions. Kirayna herself wore a mask of a shadow demon, signalling her heritage. Kjell wore a mask of a skull, signaling his recent death. Shelly wore a mask of (insert mask here). Renza's mask was transparent, showing her penchant for becoming unseen. Socrates' mask was that of a Soul Eater, representing a facet of his magic that he did not advertise.
Upon arriving in Plague-Mort, the city was a bustle of activity. Masked people were everywhere. The marketplace was hopping. Socrates did some weapon shopping and used the opportunity to inquire as to the local laws at the present moment, since the Arch-Lector could and would simply declare them at a whim, and none were otherwise universally in place. Aside from assault upon the Arch-Lector or assaulting the center of their power, all seemed to be legal.
While around town, the party paid visit to the temple of the Morrigan. It was a modest affair with a priest tending the shrine. Kirayna found out that the priest was regularly posted to Plague-Mort, but did occasionally get relieved to allow him to get out of the stinking cesspool.
The next stop was a small combined temple to the elven gods. In particular, a shrine to Shevarash. Before entering, Renza noticed a tiefling child spying upon the temple. Using her stealth skills, she nimbly moved into a striking position. Leaping down from the roof over the alley, she landed on light feet, blade in hand, ready to strike…. and the child turned around. Renza greeted him with a smile and said hi. She sussed out that the child was hired by the 'pretty elf lady' to watch the shrine. The party realized this was the elven enchantress they had met previously. Communing through the child, the enchantress had two messages for the party. One, she was in position to assassinate Duvainal at their whim. Two, Duvainal does indeed do anal. Both objectives complete, the party gave the go ahead for the enchantress to kill Dovainal.
Heading next to the Eye of the Dragon Inn, all were surprised to encounter the three hags once again. The three were at first leery to see the Multiversal minions, fearing that an assassination contract had been put out on them. Once the worry was dismissed, a pleasant conversation was had. The three revealed that their patron, Kiaransalee, had slain Orcus and her clergy were making every effort to eradicate the God's followers and icons. Their assassination of the necromancer where the party inherited their Instant Fortress was done as part of that quest. Kirayna inquired what the witches believed would happen to witches of Orcus, as she was thinking back to a warlock of the Queen of Air and Darkness the party had encountered. The hags theory matched the warlock's experience. That his familiar was unable to retrieve spells from his patron. The hags also had heard of the Queen of Air and Darkness' minions stirring up trouble, and seemed mildly perturbed at the notion. This suggests they are unrelated incidents. The three excused themselves and headed to bed while the party went to meet their own contact.
Entering a reserved dining room, the party encountered a waiting succubus. The succubus revealed herself to be the person to be escorted. She had been hired by the celestial Daniel to introduce a criminal element to Fortitude, granting the city the fortitude to resist the pull of Celestia. They arranged for the succubus to wait in the Inn for the weapon delivery to be completed. Once outside the room, Shelly revealed that the succubus in question was her mother. Shelly headed back inside to catch up. The party lingered long enough to ensure no duels to the death occurred, then left town to set up their tower and retrieve the weapon.
Unfortunatley, some Hounds of the Arch-Lector have followed the party, and have decided that it was illegal for the party to leave town on account of being interesting. It's time for the party to fork over their GP or their HP, next time on Multiversal Minions.
