Foibles and Follies

Plague!

2 Sessions Combined

After recent events at the attempted execution of Trinia Sabor things quieted down for our heroes for a week and half. While taking care of shopping and other such errands they heard of a ship that had entered the north river with a single light dangling from it, it refused to answer to any hails and was subsequently sunk by the Korvosan Guard. The next day Donivan, Kell, and Timber were approached by Sergeant Grau of the Korvosan Guard on behalf of his sister-in-law Tayce Solado‘s daughter, Brienna. The girl was deathly ill and he hoped that they could help, he explained that they did not have enough money to heal the girl themselves. When they agreed to come and at least see if they could do anything he was overjoyed and led them down in to Trail’s End, where they lived. Upon arriving they met not only Tayce and her three children, but Ishani Dhatri as well. Ishani was there to help as much as he could with herbal remedies for free, since he was not allowed by church doctrines to simply cure the disease through divine aid without compensation. Kell offered the rest of the money needed for a cure, and quickly saw to the sick girl who had large red blotches all over her skin and was hacking and coughing quite a bit. After they managed to extract themselves from the profuse thanks, they returned to their inn where Zelara appeared before them and performed a very foreboding harrow reading. Two days later they got a message from Vencarlo Orisini asking them to come see him at his school. When Kell and Timber arrived they found Vencarlo with Trinia, and he asked them to escort her outside of the city to safety on behalf of his acquaintance Blackjack. The escort passed with no incident, but many questions from the inquisitive young bard.

A day later Timber woke up with similar red blotches and him and Kell decided to go to the local Temple of Abadar. When they arrived there was a rather large crowd outside the temple, and they had to force their way through. Many people in the crowd had splotches similar to timbers, and a few had openly weeping blisters on their face and other areas of exposed skin. Ishani met them inside and after curing Timber of the disease asked to be escorted to Citadel Volshyenek in order to help coordinate the temples actions against the plague with the Korvosan Guard. Upon arriving they saw a presentation of the new orders in Korvosa, [[Dr. Devalus]] and the Queens Physicians and the Gray Maidens. After explaining their purpose to the guard, and where they stand in relation to them rank wise, the presentation was dismissed and Ishani hurried to join up with Dr. Devalus and Cressida Kroft to work out the details and organization of the various groups combating the plague.

The next day Timber and Kell received a message from Cressida asking them to investigate a perfumery called Lavender where a woman named Vendra was selling what she claimed to be a cure. After waiting in line for a while and partially interrogating Vendra they purchased a dose of Lavenders Luxurient Liniment and Kell analyzed it back at their tavern rooms. When she found that it was nothing more than a mixture of cheap perfume, water, and sugar they went back to confront her about it. Although the initial confrontation was unsuccessful, with a man providing “proof” of being healed by the Liniment, they managed to convince the gaurd that it was fake and shut down the shop early the next day, marking the 6th day of the plague in Korvosa.

On the 7th, Zacharias had finally recovered enough to join the rest of the party, as well as Donivan snapping out of his temporary fugue, while Kell decided to rest for a bit after the excitement of the last week. While Donivan and Timber went out to pawn their treasure, Zacharias received a messenger asking them to check out an alley in the slummier area of Korvosa to see if bodies were being illegally dumped there. Timber, Zacharias and Donivan all headed that way to inspect the area, and they found a pile of bodies in a crooked alley backed up against a closed toy shop with a hole in the wall. While investigating they found some bite marks on some of the bodies, and Zacharias barely managed to shout a warning before a group of vampire spawn assaulted them. After killing and driving off the spawn, they searched for any other monsters lurking nearby and upon finding none, returned to the Gaurd with their report.
