The Distant Shores Of Home

META: Session 1

True Day, Maeve 3rd, 1153 of the Shielded Age

You were all invited to the home of the Lawton Family in Northlock. The Lawtons were once on The Convocation, some years ago, but have long since fallen out of favor. All that remains of their line is young Lady Lawton and her father. 

Lady Lawton has asked you to find her father, who disappeared mere days ago. The lease is coming due on their dock in Rhimesport in just a week's time, and her father needs to sign the papers to renew or they will lose said lease. The family cannot afford this.

Lady Lawton appears to be suffering from a type of mummy rot.

In the basement dungeons of Lawton House were two locked rooms, both of which contained heavy evidence of alchemical and magical experimentation, likely to halt or reverse Lady Lawton's condition. In one room was the ruined corpse of a young sailor named Tristan Phar, in the other was dozens of putrescent and desiccated rat corpses. Both came to life and attacked, and both were destroyed.

You also found a cipher machine known as a "word box", an old piece of Boskalan tech. You were able to use it to decode a final message in Lord Lawton's journal that made reference to someone named "Trill" who he needed to meet out at the old Lawton family mining concern near the town of Lazareen, a few hours west of the city. This same journal also told of a falling out between Lord Lawton and Old Terrorlock, the necromancer who lives in the deadlands, not far from the cemetery, though the exact nature of their disagreement remains a mystery.

META: Session 2

True Day, Maeve 3rd to Woe Day, Maeve 4th, 1153 of the Shielded Age

You discussed various options for proceeding with Lady Lawton's case, in the end deciding on taking a ship through the locks to get to the mining town of Lazareen, which is very close to the Lawton Mine, among several others. Lazareen operates as a hub for all these various operations.

While still in Katta, you saw a large group of aristos appraising the Lawton family dock.

Slagwen completed his analysis of the alchemical formula being used by Lady Lawton, and found that it requires two extremely difficult-to-procure ingredients; tincture of Mare Curie, and Sun Sand. The former can only be brought in from Ghyr Mahdud, and Sun Sand is formed only at the Queens' Gate, in the center of the mainland. Both materials are quite expensive.

Ninko made some friends at the dockside bar & grill called "The Solid Pike" by teaching the cook there how to make puff cake.

You all learned that Lord Lawton had taken a ship called the Avorille, a freighter belonging to House Rasika, who are currently on the Convocation.

CatBatman and Inariel met at night to inspect the Lawton dock and found out that it had been heavily reinforced, as if to support extremely weighty cargo.

The next morning, Inariel scries on Lord Lawton, and sees that he is in a stone chamber not unlike a crude cavern-based prison cell, or a room in a dungeon. There is very little around him save for a couple crude tin dishes, like what mine laborers would use, and some dust and loose pebbles.

The next morn, you all set out aboard your chartered boat, the Dorsa, for Lazareen. Upon arriving, you met Lord Lawton's friend Trill, who it turns out is one of The Clend. The gentle giant told you that Lord Lawton came back to his mine because Pech miners had discovered a long vein of Mithral inside it, one long enough to restore his family's fortune many times over.

Trill then gave you a key to a storage unit, and departed.
