Chronicles of Severance II - The Lost Heralds

Blinded by the Light

CoS II, Session 6

In which:
-Michovin returned to Neathome with the captured Hosilla and Wendaug
-Cailin, Ylith, and Eve pressed forward towards the surface, defeating a numbers of minor obstacles along the way:
—a locked door
—minor traps and alarms
—a small maze
—dire rats
-Eventually they found themselves waiting on the edge of a large chamber in a disused part of the Dardaris sewer system, watching the Drell chieftain Nar chastise his men for being so weak as to work with humans from the surface, humans who had taken their children
-They decided to approach Nar and make a bid for access to the surface by appealing to their shared outrage over what the cultists had done:
—Cailin disguised himself as a Drell for this as he assumed an outsider would not be welcome
—Negotiations started well, with Nar approving of the killing of the Vael cultists below
—The disguise, cunningly fashioned from an old cloak and a fish hook did not last long, however Cailin avoided disaster by convincing Nar that his hatred for the cultists was quite genuine
—Nar explained that he had just come back from a long journey via the dark passages of the world which had taken him to Chasm’s Deep, a city where the Drell would be welcome
—He wants to lead all the Drell on a mass exodus there, forcing an exit through Dardaris
—The party managed to convince him to let them try their hand at a diplomatic solution, in return for convincing the people of Neathome to join him and the head of the cultist leader
-The party returned to Neathome and called a council of the Drell leaders where they argued for joining with Nar and abandoning their home which is now impossible to supply with the tunnels collapsed, they narrowly succeeded through a combination of Cailins smooth talking, Yliths magical reminder of their own history, and Eve’s authority. The only condition was that the people of Neathome be allowed to choose their own way rather than Nar’s once on the surface, that they remain self governing
-Ylith and Cailin attempted to interrogate Hossila and learned that Solus Tern, councilor of dardaris, is the head of her cult after Ylith convinced Hossila that her sorcery could inflict terrible punishments after death
-Returning to Nar he agreed to give the party three days to secure passage for the Drell before they would take it by force
-Continuing to the surface, now with Cal, Gretch, and Michovin they eventually climbed out into the courtyard of a broken down mansion
-The blind owner of that mansion was a distant relative of Gretch’s, and was narrowly convinced that trade with the Drell might prove fruitful when Cailin told him that the gems from the cultists were in fact from the Drell
