The party decided that a preemptive strike to try and rescue Kypello Hilam brother was a viable tactic. The party attempted a scry spell to only find it resisted. Kypello Hilam used sending to tell her brother to stop resisting, and another scry was used. The brother was able to tell the party that he was taking into the deepest part of the sewers, but that is all he knew. Mallark Illileriel also attempted a scry but was unable to find out any more information.
Having to go back to the old fashion way of gathering information, Darius Huss and Thundaar went to the local sheriff to find out if there were any known people gone missing in the sewers, while Kypello Hilam and Mallark Illileriel went to the find any maps to the sewers. While Darius Huss and Thundaar were unsuccessful, Kypello Hilam and Mallark Illileriel were able to find the maps they were after, and the party then ventured into the sewers.
After a couple of hours, the party came to an opening, where a large bed was present, along with three other exits, two which were barred. As they entered, two hulking ogre looking creatures confronted the party asking who the party was. The party, in no mood to parlay after trudging through the sewers, bluntly asked where Kypello Hilam brother was, and was replied with a animalistic roar and charged at the party.
Mallark Illileriel reacted quickly creating a pit forcing the orge’s a reflex save, which they managed to make. Darius Huss and Thundaar then engaged with the orge’s, while Kypello Hilam healed Darius Huss who was being hit by the orge’s. Thundaar high armor class was keeping him from any major damage, and Mallark Illileriel determined the orge’s where infected by lycanthropy causes the orge’s to be more animalistic then regular orge’s. Thundaar finished off one orge, and then moved to flank with Darius Huss, but fell into Mallark Illileriel pit. Darius Huss then finished off the orge and Thundaar was extracted from the pit.
The caged tunnel lead to a cell which was clearly the one Kypello Hilam brother was being held, but the brother was not there. Seems that the party’s scry attempts had been noticed, and the brother moved. The party then headed to the warehouse to see if it could be taken before the meeting with the Warhol’s. Mallark Illileriel flying and invisible found that the warehouse was a hive of activity and heavily guarded with 12 gunsligners carrying blunderbuss’s. Mallark Illileriel easily was able to enter into the warehouse and noticed a trap door that lead to the sewers. The party went back to sewers and easily found the trap door entrance, that was not guarded, however an assault against 12 ranged combatants was not a fight the party able win without concerted effort.
The decision was made to send the message to the Warhol’s and meet at the warehouse at 10:30pm. A message was sent back to meet at midnight, the party was about to send one back to see to meet at 11pm, when the Genie the party had rescued from the The Crooked Tower appeared, and offered to return Bourne the Damned from the painting he was trapped in which they agreed to. Bourne the Damned magically appeared, and was caught up with the current dealings. Thundaar felt that his place finding Eunice was more important then anything the party was dealing with outside of Tsar, and let the party meet the Warhol’s without him.
The party staked out the warehouse hoping perhaps to intercept Kypello Hilam brother, however it was soon clear that the Warhol’s arrived via the sewers. The party buffed expecting a fight to occur, and then entered at the agreed time and was met by the new jersey accented man along with 3 of his fellow Warhols, and Kypello Hilam brother. The party asked the man if he knew what the charred box was really for, and was met with a reply that he didn’t care, he just is asked to procure and item and then he delivers. Just then Belishan the Bloodmage appeared behind the Warhol’s, ripping one of the heads off. “Thank you he said”, “I wanted to know who wanted the box, and now I know”, as he ripped another Warhol’s throat out. “For your reward”, killing another, “i’ve brought some friends”, and killing the last Warhol disappeared. Then in each corner of the warhouse a demon appeared, 3 Vrocks, and a Glabrezu…..
Bourne the Damned acted quickly, acrobatically getting behind the Glabrezu and grappling it, and before any one else could act, the Vrock’s started their Dance of Ruin . Mallark Illileriel used his dimensional step ability to get Kypello Hilam bother to safety. Darius Huss cast Righteous Might and prepared to meet the demons. The Vrock’s Dance of Ruin activated early – clearly these weren’t normal Vroks, but the party was able to save against the effects, and then the Vroks charged at Darius Huss releasing their spores as they did. Kypello Hilam started channelling positive energy to harm the demons thanks to his variant ability as Darius Huss vitally hit the Vroks no surrounding him realising that his holy hammer was not enough to get passed these mythic Vroks. Bourne the Damned kept grappling with the Glabrezu repositing it around so he could engage with the Vroks. Mallark Illileriel did something that helped that I can’t remember. Finally the demons were killed after some critical hits were scored.
