Session 12-2

Why take the elevator when you can walk up 500 steps of stairs?

A few days later you arrived in Mantol-Derith, a town situated over 100ft above the Darklake at the end of a crevice. At the docks you were welcomed to the town by some helpful dockworkers who hoped you had some work for them. Instead you bade your guide farewell and saw an elevator operated by some Svirfneblin. But instead of paying their toll you took the head of one of them and the other ran away. With no idea how the elevator operated you had to walk all the step up to Mantol-Derith proper. Once up, with sweat dripping down your forehead, the small mercantile outpost of Mantol-Derith laid before you.

Session 12-3

Finding another guide

Working your way through the outpost you walked by several mercantile houses. Asking around and listening to the gossip you settled on approaching Holstein and Sons Trading Company. After some negotiations a contract was drawn up, a fee negotiated and a deal celebrated. You found someone to take you where the sun shines.

Session 12-4

An offer you could have refused

Deciding to rest up a few days before starting the last leg of your journey and enjoy the outpost a bit more you at one point spotted two Svirfneblin shadowing you. When caught and questions they revealed they followed you as they thought you looked like someone who could help them empty out a tomb that claimed their last party. Apparently the tomb is the resting place for Khaem, an archmage and warlord from a long lost past. Taking them up on their offer you arranged for the guide to wait a bit and you followed them towards the tomb.

Session 13-2

Friends old and new

Back in Mantol-Derith with your gnomes in tow and in bad condition, not too unlike cut-off addicts, you wondered what to do with them. You found the temple to All Gods and Deities of Gold and Prosperity willing to take them in for a generous donation. After resting and getting over the horrors of Khaem's tomb you went to Holstein and Sons to meet up with your guides, a pair of jolly Dwarves named Gla and Lad. On your way out of Mantol-Derith, after Gla and Lad exchanged some information with an incoming caravan, you found a roguish looking fellow who as well were seeking a way out. A small donation to your purses earned Levi Baron a part of your little caravan out.
