Our heroes meet with Cressida Kroft and in her office is Vencarlos Orisini they talk about many things ranging from the government to Korvosan legends such as the famed hero Blackjack who has recently resurfaced. Cressida has given a task to the party to go to old Kovorsa and deal with a thorn in her side by the name of Darvayne Gios Amprei and the only way to get to him is by Devargo Barvasi.
The mission started of normally; however, things took a turn for the worst as the guards would not allow the party entrance no matter what. Thus, Balto did the only sensible thing any adventure would do… (sigh) he stared a “bar” brawl on the main deck by throwing a chair. As the chair landed on some unsuspecting dwarf a battle royal ensued. The dwarf attacked him and Balto ran. Meanwhile Annex tried to sneak by the guards, but they saw him move too close. Euros watched as shit hit the fan and tried to back up Balto. As they ran from boat to boat the dwarf caught up to Balto and pushed him over the edge making him plunged a few feet down. Annex tried to shoot crossbow bolts at him but missed and luckily the dwarf was a man who only and to fight with Balto and no one else. And then a shark found poor Balto in the water and attacked. Annex decided to be a hero and get a jump attack on the shark. The shark decided to go under…Balto swam towards the boat because Euros threw some rope towards him. He went up and Annex went down. Meanwhile the rest of the party noticed that Annex didn’t come back up. Balto said “Fuck it I will save him just tie some rope on me!” as he readied to dive back in. And he gets there just in time before the shark is going to snack on an unconscious Annex. He manages to fight it off and save Annex from the shark; however, Balto’s swimming technique was down right sorry and he began to swallow water and he too lost conscious, sadly releasing annex right back into the unforgiving hands of the ocean. The dwarf came back to help reel them in, but the only one who came up was Balto and he needed air fast. Yet, fate was an unrelenting bitch this day and he, too, died from oxygen deprivation and liquids in his lungs.
Two days pass as the party mourns the loss of a friend and a mysterious man who’s name they still did not know.
At the funeral they meet a cleric of Sarenrae (played by Cesar) who believes that he was sent here to help the party and prevent misfortune like this from happening again. Saint End decided he would go this time to make sure an accident won’t happen again, while Reaper decide to take an extra day to mourn his buddy. On their way there they meet a strange little fellow. He seems to be enamored with fire and it is always on his mind. They paid him to come along.(He was more trouble than he was worth but more on that later because you know Spoilers and stuff :3)
The party manages to bribe their way in, but little old Fire Druid accidentally offended a guard who took him into the ship as a prisoner. He would later be taken to feed some of the King of spiders pets but more on that later.
As the party makes their way in they find six other guards in there and a very angry looking man sitting in a make-shift throne. That man was Devargo Barvasi and he had no time to waste so they got right down to it. Deals were made and insults were tossed but luckily the Pc’s had enough money to simmer the situation down. He went to get the evidence they needed. When he left Majenko telepathically communicated with Lucario Sparrow asking for freedom. A fight went under way and thanks to some clever thinking from Euros they used a trap door they found on the poor saps. and MAjenko was freed.
Now this trap door lead to a lair of sorts for the true spider king. An Ettercap has made its home here and it was about to feed on a poor unconscious Druid named Dobbie. Luckily the two guards who fell through became its new snack and the left overs were left for its babies(spiders). Devargo came back with the letters but he was pissed that the PC’s betrayed him. Saint End and him begin to duke it out poisoned is used and damage is taken. All the while Euros asks if its cool to help the other and Saint End gives the thumbs up. He jumps down wailing on the Ettercap with his Earthbreaker dealing nasty damage. Lucario is knocked out but Majenko tries to protect him. At this time spiders begin to flood the room. The spiders fall to the mighty boot(lol)and Devargo comes down bringing Saint End only to find that his side is the losing side.
With a crushing blow to a fleeing Devargo (who became invisible) by a raging barbarian’s sword they retrieve what they needed and find some stuff worth selling. They bring it back to Cressida Kroft and she thanks them tremendously and makes them champions of the city. She hands them 500gp to share with the pseudodragon’s mark (for each player), a medal that symbolizes a character is a champion of Korvosa.
As for now she does not need their help and tells them to rest up and if she needs their help she shall call for them.
