Funeral of a Friend

Coming Home

Word had reached each of them that their mentor Chevenol Barlog had passed away and that his funeral was being held in a few days. Each of them owed this man in more ways than they could repay. Chevenol played a large part in each of their early developmental and formative years. As one of the officers in charge of the Howler’s street gang, he had protected them, trained them, looked out for and loved them. Now he was gone so there was no questions that each one would make the trip back home to the means streets of Luscan that they had so eagerly left behind. No sooner had they stepped foot on the dirty cobblestone streets of Luscan, and they were harassed by a rival gang calling themselves the Dominos. In one instance they tried to beguile Narda into an ally way to take advantage of her, but their plans were foiled when Os, Jack Calico and a few other ex-Howler’s got involved. In another a pick pocket stole Ambers coin purse and lured her into an ambush. She managed to escape, but Kraig had an unfortunate run in with some alchemists fire and the city guard (really a disguised Domino gang member) as he was accused of killing a child with one of his arrows (actually an accidental shotting by a fellow Howler).

Soon all the ex-members were reunited at the Inn of the Mist. There they enjoyed the hospitality of good food, good spirits, getting a chance to catch up with old friends and to pay their final respects to Chevenol. In true Jack fashion he was the life of the bar “Spice Rum for everyone”. While Kraig tried to forget earlier events by getting old Samuel drunk on black talon. Amber was the only one who volunteered to be part of the funeral ceremoney and went to visit the priests of Kelemvor who let her participate in the burial ritual.

.

The next day everyone gathered in the cemetary (much fewer numbers attended the acutal ceremony than had attended the wake the night before) and got to say their final goodbyes. As the ceremony was nearing conclusion a male voice asked if it was too late to say a few words. He was of course given the chance to speak and he did. As he finished the last sylaball of his thrid word, the tombstones in the surroinding area exploded sending shrapnel into the mourners knocking some over and severly injuring others. It was Kraig who noticed the male figure making his way towards a side gate and without hesitation he jumped ontop of Chevenols coffin and shot him down with a bow shot. As some helped the injured and others got back to their own feet they soon noticed that they were under attack by several ghasts that had apparently been released from the mosaleum nearest to them. Jack, Narda, Amber and others made short work of the Ghasts while Os made his way to the fallen runner and struck him once more to ensure he would not escape and killed him. He brough the body back to the gathering, Chevenols funeral was completed and he was buried. A pair of Howlers were tasked to stand guard over his grave while the rest left to get their wounds attended to and to see what they could find.

.

Through use of speak with dead (thanks to the priests of Kelemvor) they learned that the Duskers may be behind the plot, an approximate address of where the man lived, that he was paid to say the words, they got a name Egger Harris, but not much else to go on. After passing the info on to the current Howler leaders they were instructed to break into two packs and to hit a Domino hang out called the Iron Wheasle along with an information broker named Tillson’s office to try and get more information and to report back to the gang.
