Watchful Order of Magists and Protectors
After an uneventful night at the Sea Wall Inn, the morning starts with Aaron, Galadhon, Eleindar, and Erky visiting the Watchful Order of Magists and Protectors Guild. The guild resides in the Tower of the Order, in the city’s Castle Ward. At four stories tall, the stone building is surrounding by a magical fence of green energy. Unable to locate a gate past the energy wall, Aaron sends his hawk familiar to fly onto the grounds. This triggers the arrival of Sulin, one of the Order’s apprentices. After a review of Naxene’s letter of recommendation, Sulin opens a portal in the fence and bids the Heroes to enter.
The Watchful Order’s guild master, Mhair Szeltune (pronounced “Mare Shell-tune”) speaks to the group. She is direct but helpful, agreeing to have her Order create a scroll of water-breathing for Aaron in return for 3 books he’s collected during his travels. Mhair can suggest some reputable magic “brokers” as the group wants to buy specific magical items. Brokers or magic item creators are the only way to acquire enchanted items. She also allows access for Aaron and Eleindar to the Order of the Tower but cautions them against exploring the building. There are wards and security throughout the building, most of them lethal.
Talking to the “Dragon Expert”
Next, the group goes to talk to Naxene’s acquaintance, dragon expert Chazlauth Yarghorn (pronounced “Chazz-louth Yarg-horn”) in the North Ward. The party relays Naxene’s plan to use dragons to counter the giants as they are age-old adversaries. Chazlauth doesn’t believe the idea of using dragons to fight the giants will work. He explains dragons are too egotistical in nature, rarely banding together long enough to be useful in such a war. He suggests another option; the Heroes should visit an ancient Green Dragon named Old Gnawbones in Kryptgarden forest, north of Waterdeep. Chazlauth knows Old Gnawbones is more than a little paranoid; she scrys on everyone of any importance. As the party is interested in keeping the giants from becoming too powerful, and Old Gnawbones wishes that as well, Chazlauth believes she will help them rather than eat them.
During the day, Eleindar reaches out to a “friend” from his old guild, the Shadow Wolves, in Waterdeep. The guild master has a job for the party if they are interested. It pays well but must be done immediately. The group debates the plan of action.
End of Session.
