Mis-Adventures In The Iron Kingdoms 7/5/2013

Yeeeaaaahhhh, its been a while since I last done this.

So what has happened since the last update?

The party went to the ball with their plan for taking out the Minister of Internal Security which involved one of their own acting as a sniper, though this role the said character failed to complete...though the party soon found out why. Regardless as they puzzled on why no sniper shot had rung out and gave the Minister a third eye, they noticed that the officials present at the ball were beginning to leave after receiving some news from their aides. It wasn't long before the rest of the nobles also departed in a state of barely contained panic.

The Cryx were attacking the city.

With this bit of information in mind the party hastily made for their safehouse and then for a way out of the city, managing to avoid the Cryx raiders. En-route they ran into the Minister and took him for a little ride, later dumping his body some distance from the city in a quiet spot. Taking a roundabout route back across Llael they made for the resistance HQ, where they received word of Cryx attacks further afield and some disappearances from local villages. The party were offered a job to investigate the disappearances, but they decided to leave it until a later date.

After hearing of a Cryx attack near Corvis they party were keen on getting back soon as possible, fearing there was some connection with the Black Pearls. Though the Pearl they got from the Minister's estate they handed over to the Druids, though would later come to regret that decision. They also ran into the Isoans who warned them about the Pearls and the danger of them falling into the wrong hands (aka the Druids amongst other people). The Isoans stated that the Pearls were ancient artefacts of their people and they wished to destroy them, but the party were still a little wary.

They made it back to Corvis about further incident where they discovered that Lady Ellsworth had gone to Caspia with the other Black Pearl in response to the recent Cryx attacks and an attack on her estate. This point the party received offers from the local wizards order and from the Cult of Cyriss regarding the Black Pearls. It was also discovered that Lady Ellsworth wasn't who she claimed to be, at least in mind, but she had made travel arrangements for the party to join her in Caspia.

That pretty much brings us back up to speed, tomorrow I'll post how the rest of the campaign is likely to pan out. On Thursday I'll post a bit about my plans for a future Iron Kingdoms campaign.
