When we last saw our heroes, they had entered the undercity of Lyrica to help the Greater Pavo Shipping and Trade Company recover some stolen goods. The manager of the warehouse, Kurt, said he would pay them for anything they are able to recover. The group discovered and slaughtered a group of Wererats in an underground storage room and recovered some of the stolen goods. They intimidated a wererat, who told them that items were only being stolen from crates with a certain symbol. They must now decide whether to return to the surface with what they have, or delve deeper to find the wererat leader, Borlem…
And now, the adventure continues!
After cleaning up from the wererat massacre, the adventurers decided to go after Borlem, the poor, defenseless wererat leader. They advanced down the hallway towards where they were told Borlem would be. They found a small room with some old industrial looking objects, one of which George took a liking to an attempted to hug. Further down the hall they encountered a locked iron door, which Kevnan easily opened.
On the other side of the door was a larger room which looked like more of a wererat hideout. On the far corner, there was a single wererat siting at a desk inspecting a metal ingot, stamped with the same seal as the boxes in the previou room. Dawn and Kevnan stealthily crept arcross the room, moving into position to knock out the lone wererat. Kevnan successfully befuddled the wererat with his assault, and Dawn moved in to restrain him the rest of the way. With the wererat under control, the rest of the group moved in.
Dawn interrogated the wererat, with little success, and called George over. The gigantic robot was very intimidating, and managed to get the name of the wererat: Borlem. And more importantly, Borlem is not the one in charge. He’s working for someone else – a merchant named Traneiros Daleborn. They were to told steal this merchandise and bring to another man, who they would meet later that night at the docks.
The group packed up the ingots and Borlem and returned to the warehouse. Deciding that it might be best to not yet tell Kurt all the details, the adventurers returned the stolen goods they had collected and told Kurt to hold Borlem for the day, while they continued to investigate. Heading back into the undercity, the group returned the room where Borlem resided and explored the hallway behind his desk. The hallway was long, winding, and eventually dead-ended in a small room with a grate into the sewers.
With that area of the undercity explored, the group returned to the surface. Kurt told them that he was satisfied with what they had recovered, and any further investigation they do should be reported to insurance investigator, and then directed them to Larry in the business offer for their reward – 500 gold.
Next time – the intrigue continues as our group of heroes investigate Tradeiros and the mysterious man at the docks.
