After laying Chevenol to rest the team returned to the Inn of the Mist to regroup and see what the Howler’s next move would be. Roger (aka the Codger), one of the gangs bosses asked the team to split into two packs and to seek out information.
As one pack headed towards a known hang out of some Domino gang members (Iron Wheasle) to see if they could round up a few or at least get some answers, the other pack headed to a meeting with a known information broker named Tillson.
Outside the Iron Wheasle, Kraig and Azier took to the roof tops to look for any spotters the Dominos may have while Os and Ramseys made their way closer. Azier spotted a lookout on a rooftop adjacent to the Iron Wheasle, but it was Kraig who took the first shot at him with Azier following suite. As the lookout fell from the roof top, Os kicked in the front door of the Tavern and Ramsis followd with a blinding flash of light. Then all hell broke loose as the Domino members who could still see went on the attack. Os managed to use his Iron bands of billero to capture a mage while Kraig and Azier finaly made it to the back door to secure the lookout who had fallen from the roof (Kraig tried to remove the arrows to stabelize him but to no avail). The fight was fast an furious with Ramseys getting moraly wounded. Os threw his captive out the window and intended on escaping but was met with a Domino wanting to bargain with an unconcious Ramsis in exchange for the mage. Os would have none of it and threw the captive aside and charged the Domino, Ramsis paid the price and his throat was slit and he died before he hit the ground. While Os battled on, Kraig and Azier entered through the back of the tavern and took arrow shots at those inside. Seeing the tide of battle turning the remaining Dominos chose flight over fight and exited any way they could. Os was able to retrieve his captive and evade pursuers and make it back to Howler territory as was Kraig and Azier with Ramsis’ body and another Domino captive.
Cassidy managed to get an appointment with Tillson, but at his office vs a neutral site like she hoped. Narda, Jack and here new dwarven friend accompanied her to the meeting. They were met by Tillson’s less than hospital group of mercanaries, but gained his audiance none the less. Cassidy tried to “charm” some information out of Tillson, but it was she who fell influence to Tillson’s “suggestion” for 200 gold pieces for his information. While Cassidy’s protectors exchanged underbreathed insults with Tillsons guards, Cassidy and Tillson managed to get some insults of their own against each other. Tempers started to flare as they often do when egos are involved and a small skermish broke out in his office. Both sides gave as good as they got and cooler heads finaly previaled and the skirmish was over as quickly as it started with both sides claiming they had a better showing. Through it all they managed to learn that some new player(s) had made their way into town off of the “Raven” captained by One eyed Greg, they all have a skull wrapped in flames tatoo on their left forearm. Supposedly one of them met with each of the gang leaders in private (including Chevenol) and it appears that perhaps one of the gangs have thrown in with them. They are rumored to have a place somewhere around the 5th ward on the east end (the same general area where Eggar Harris is rumored to have lived).
Both teams returned to the prearranged safe house to meet back up and discuss what they had found, while Ramsis was taken to the shrine of Torm to see if his soul could be brought back.
