Cartographer's Guild

A Visit to Lord Natael (4/18)

After arriving at the Guild Library in Agleburg, the group split up: Helga went to find ale, Letha went into town on unexplained business, Relic visited the library, and, by all appearances, Sarvantis went to bed.

When Relic awoke the next morning, he discovered that none of his companions had returned, and upon further investigation, found that Sarvantis had “disappeared.” It was implied that if Relic were to continue that line of inquiry he would meet a similar fate.

With nothing better to do, Relic set out to investigate the Dusk Tower, but on the way he was stopped by the city watch, who offered him an invitation to speak to Lord Natael. He was shown directly in to the Lord, who was receiving Arrion Corr, an emissary of the Kalashtar. He informed the gentlemen that they all seemed to share a common problem, a web of deceit and treachery with only one exposed thread: a smuggling ring using the sewers as a base.

Natael provided Relic and Arrion with access badges to pass through the wards protecting the keep from incursion through the sewers, and the two new companions set out into the dank underworld of the Agleburg Sewers.

After a difficult battle with some Goblin scouts, Arrion and Relic recruited a goblin warrior, Splug, to their side, and he agreed to show them to the smugglers’ base of operations. He warned them of a guard drake employed at the entrance, a warning that the two investigators would learn was not to be taken lightly.

Relic and Arrion fought their way through the goblin base to their chief, who was being advised by a bandit from the assassin’s guild, and, after some brief troubles with a pit, held the field.

Now they rest, but two passages lead from the chamber, and neither knows the dangers lurking beyond them…

Reboot (out of character)

Howdy folks.

I’m going to work to keep this wiki updated with campaign info. Sometime this weekend, I’ll get the current PCs in and start updating the logs for each session. Even though none of the new PCs are actually members of the guild (though I’m willing to retcon it if they ask me to), the adventure logs will be written in character as a guild chronicler.

I will leave up the info and references to Tatsu and The Pro, though I’ll downgrade their character pages to NPC.

Present Concerns

FROM the pen of Senior Librarian Wolham,

TO the eyes of the Illustrious Henry Plagent, Master Librarian of the Luddon Archives and Lord Teacher as Appointed by the High Seat of the Guild,

ON this ninety-seventh day of the fifth year of Expanding Limits,

OR the year 219 of the Guild Calendar.

Master Librarian,

I was recently informed of the impending visit of a Guild Reader scheduled to arrive from Rho’vaa in the coming weeks. As you are certainly aware, he is an Eladrin who is proud of his heritage and tends to be less courteous to the Brethren than some would perhaps find appropriate.

Naturally I became concerned regarding some of our brethren who have only just recently finished their novitiates. Most notable in my eyes are the Dragonborn Tatsu, who is prone to brawling, and the Eladrin who has forsaken his name, his people, and his history; the one other novices either called The Pro or, if they didn’t like him, the Grue, after the legendary creature whose face has never been seen. It is the Eladrin who worries me; few in the Library know that he has been cast out, or has cast himself out, from Eladrin society, and no Eladrin can or will bear to have civil discourse with him. I fear that if the Reader discovers the presence of Grue he may take drastic measures to “correct” our Library.

It also occurs to me that our Cambrian issues have yet to be resolved. The Library there has requested even more funds on top of the veritable torrent that we have been sending them for the past several years, and they have yet to send us even a single report of any substance.

It seems to me that Grue and Tatsu are unusually suited to deal with this issue, and it would remove them from our Luddon Library while the Reader is visiting. Grue certainly has the Thirst that we look for in promising novices, and Tatsu has a way of finding and extracting that which is hidden, often by methods no other member of the Guild would even think of.

In summary, I humbly suggest that we elevate both of them to the rank of Cartographer, form them into a Compass of Knowledge, and charge them to investigate the status of the Agleburg Library with the additional charge to Map, Classify, and Report whatever they may find in the region.

We may need to assign one or more other members of the Brethren to this new Compass, in order to guide these new Cartographers and see that they uphold the standards and reputation of our Illustrious Guild.

In earnest,

Stephen Wolham,

Senior Librarian and Humble Servant of Knowledge,

Luddon, Brixtonia

An Introduction to the Chronicles
The Guild Chronicles

These Chronicles detail the actions of Guild members sent into the chaos of our world in search of new and lost knowledge and relics.

So that knowledge of what we do is not lost, we shall record, and remember.
