In which the Sigil 6 return to Sigil, do research, ask questions and make a plan.
With their powers and resources dwindling, they ran like hell from the Tomb that Walks. It did not follow them into Sigil.
After weeks of brutal battle, it was lovely to take a moment and breathe a bit. Kuru visited the Head Administrative Clerk of Sigil, a subtle Hobbit lady who Kuru knows is Sigil’s Spymaster.
She gave him access to intercepted arcane messages sent between liches and their thoughts on Aborak. Established:
Liches are selfish jerks.
They are fascinated with Aborak and think the demilich likes being a bounty hunter in the depths of what is left of their dark soul.
Aborak’s Iron Golem has delayed blast fireball gems on its chest.
Demiliches can’t cast spells and Aborak has to pay necromancers and liches to gate around. The Lich-Queen often barters with them, trading lost Silver Swords and runaways for money. The Githyanki Lich-Queen is the Tomb that Walks’ bank.
NOTE/OATH: If we don’t have a heist on the city of Tu’narath, I’ll have considered this campaign and my entire gaming career a net loss.
They asked their Gnomish Artificer friend, Dosk, questions about demiliches but she didn’t have much to give them but their questions made her go back and look over her scans she took in Chult under the Lost City of Omu. She pointed out to them that there were clearly lich-soul-jars (trying to get away from the term, phylactery in support of fellow Jews who detest its use in this manner).
They are returning to Chult to grab them.
Their Drider handler, Quarace, is going to head to the Radiant Citadel to set up shop so the Outlands Expedition Teams and the Shieldbearers can talk shop and trade techniques.
Failed Soldier met up with a necromancer corpseflea called Failed Lich, who mentioned that his name didn’t seem to encompass his actions and Failed Soldier (Flodier for short) gave a humble answer.
Then they met up with the Corpseflea Librarian who was meeting with a Harlequin-garbed Corpseflea Bard who suggested their species should hold their lore in poetry and song. The Librarian also suggested that Failed Soldier’s name didn’t seem to encompass them.
“I want something about guiding souls to where they belong, helping them on their way…I’m not sure.”
“What about Shepherd?”
I think Failed Soldier has a new name…
Jusko feasted the Holy Order of Ioun and asked the holy eldritch knights who ride tenser’s discs, to watch out for the Sigil 6’s friends and family. We said cool shit about how adventuring comrades become friends and then something like family and then something more than family. It was good shit.
They are going back to Chult, apparently Jusko has an apartment there. Then we’re off to the Radiant Citadel.
