Last Updated: December 30, 2019


Waukeen Bank Account = 70.32 gp (-x gp banking fees for year)

Morticia	= 25,000 gp
Barid		=  1,000 gp
Baird		=    100 gp

Dolora owes 1,000 gp to Barid for the casting of Raise Dead (previously owed 1,344 gp, but Dolora paid back Barid 344 gp)
- careful Barid, Dolora may adopt the "Tormod" strategy for dealing with her debt to you.
- Hmmm...Dolora owes Barid 1,000 gp.... Barid has a 1,000 gp bounty on his head... hmmm...

The beholder, known as the Eye, intervened in the battle with and his Red Wizard flunkies, so the group owes him a "solid".


1. Potentially 4 guards and 10 more slaves alive in cave complex that were traded 
   by the goblins to other cavern dwellers (such as the bugbears)
   - likely all dead by now. None were found in the Bugbear caves, but could still be in goblin 
     or elsewhere...

2. Lady Alathene has offered a reward of 10,000 gp for the return of her ring, 
   a family heirloom, stolen by 4 rogue prospects of the Red Sashes (Lila, Jasper, Gordon and Eric), 
   who have fled and entered the undermountain, according to Jarundar (dwarven red sash).
   - possibly a hoax as ambushed by experienced rogues. Defeated them, except for Eric who escaped.
   - ring was not found
   - spread rumor to lure Eric out of hiding "George needed a place to hide, and was willing 
     to pay for the service, but only trusted Eric of the Red Sashes to do so"
   - Eric helped the do-gooder gnome on the snow leopard escape and flee to waterdeep to rat them out
   - Eric's abilities:
     - Rogue? Level = ?
     - suspected items: ring of invisibility (he has suddenly vanished twice on us)
   - ERIC THE RED IS DEAD. Injured by Dwor, deathblow by Oriana, and eaten by the beholder known as the Eye.
     The Eye ate Eric the Red and all his items.

3. the Wascally Wed Wizard is hunting Morticia for alleged murder
   - since Morticia is a conjurer, assume former Master Turdious Stool, and fellow apprentice are also conjurers
   -'s abilities: 
     - Character Level 7?  = 	Wizard 5? (specialist school = evocation? conjuration?, prohibited = illusion and necromancy)
				Red Wizard 2? (cannot cast spells from 3rd prohibited school if spell level is 4+ = ?)  
     - known spells = 	L1 = 	conj: 	mage armor
				ench:	charm person?,sleep 
				evoc:	magic missile, 
                      	L2 = 	evoc:	gust of wind, scorching ray 
				trans:	cat's grace
			L3 = 	abj:	dispel magic, 
				evoc:	fireball
			L4 = 	div:	scrying, dimension door (or teleport?)
     - known items = Magic Belt, Wand of Color Spray, teleport rod (one-shot, used)
       potions of displacement(?) since an illusion spell and could not cast?
     - has 5 flunky's in his employ (Thayan Knights?) and 2 apprentices (dead)
     - whoever loaned him the flesh golem is not going to be happy to learn of its destruction :)
   - spread rumor that " the Wascally Wed Wizad has no honaw and only wins majwic duels when cheweating!"
     - since Oriana noticed he cheated during his mage duel with Morticia
   - Oriana pretended to be a drunk at the Golden Horn Gambling House rambling on about 
     how he hated being known as Turdious Stool's Little Turd and that he managed to frame Morticia
     for Stool's murder, made a big fuss about what a big shot he was amongst the Red Wizards
     - meanwhile, tried to lure out of Red Wizard compound to Temple of Mystra for a 
       fake mage duel with Morticia, so that he would have no alibi, but he was a no show
   - Red Wizards are handing out wanted posters of Morticia and have raised the bounty from 1,000 gp to 5,000 gp.
     Bounty is becoming respectable at 25,000 gp.
   - Turdious Stool is still alive, with a scar on his throat thanks to Morticia, used an inevitable to capture 
     Morticia. A short time later, Morticia was returned to the group, minus her unborn demon child. 
     Dolora and Taylor seem upset about this for some reason.
     (Damn it, does this mean we could have turned Morticia in for the Bounty, and Stool would have sent her back?
      If we turn her in now for the bounty, will they send her back again? 
      How many times can we collect before they decide to keep her?)
   - Turdious Stool is only using his former apprentice,, to act on his behalf, the rest of the 
     Red Wizards are staying out of it. has former apprentices and Thayan Knights at his disposal.
     (although 2 more dead knight, 3 dead Red Wizards, and a Red Wizard escaped.)
   - Heard a rumor that would be at the Yawning Portal Inn, but it was a trap to give Morticia 
     and her companions a beat down. The beholder, known as the Eye, intervened so the group owes him a "solid" 

4. Lord Bly Ruldegost has tasked them to take out a group of mercenaries hired by the Lords of 
   Waterdeep. The mercenaries were to stop a tribe of rampaging ogres from attacking local villages.
   By stopping the mercenaries, people will still be afraid of the ogres and buy more weapons.
   Lord Bly has promised a share of the profits or "royalty" from the sale of weapons.
   - ogres have been attacking merchants along the river and road near Uluvin on the road 
     to Secomber
   - The ardeep forest is home to goblins, ogres, hill giants, marsh giants and rumors of a treant.
     - At least 14 Ogres have been killed including a "chief" and a "mage".
     - The treant is not a rumour, it exists.
   - a dozen do-gooder mercenaries have gone to the Ardeep forest near the Stump Bog to track down 
     down and kill the ogres (actual number of force = 14).  
     - Male Dwarf Paladin of Tyr - DEAD - has half-plate, hvy steel shield and warhammer
     - Lilia - Female Gnome melee type - ESCAPED - rides a snow leopard (ranger animal companion? paladin mount?)
       - aided by Eric of the Red Sashes, is fleeing to Waterdeep to claim that the party attacked them.
     - Female Human Cleric of Tyr - DEAD
     - Male Human Wizard - DEAD (sorcerer? since was wielding a spear)
     - Male Wood Elf Divine Caster type - ESCAPED, seen briefly when gnome fled
     - Eksel - Female Human Arcane Caster type (Bard?) - UNSEEN, but heard singing in the distance
     - 8 Human Mercanaries, 4 male and 4 female - cannon fodder support squad
       - Were being led by Eric of the Red Sashes (can use this against the gnome's story)
       - Eric has disappeared, 6 Mercs are DEAD, 2 Mercs have fled
     - Lilia made it to town a few hours before the party and claimed that they had attacked her party first.
       Lord Bly greased some palms to stop the investigation, but Lilia and her friends are under protection
       of the Grey Enforcers (elite guards of the Lords of Waterdeep).
     - Lord Bly provided first ten-day payment of share of profits of weapon sales = 50 gp

5.  Barid claims a local cell of Bane worshippers are in need of a funeral escort for an important follower of Bane
    from a village 2-3 hours outside of Waterdeep to the City of the Dead within Waterdeep for a ceramonial burial.
    - Barid claims the Bane worshippers are low on funds (i.e. poor) and unable to pay us, but will provide information
      on the Red Wizards instead, in terms of why they are after Morticia and handing out the wanted posters.
    - Divinations warned that red sashes, cyric, umberlee, and maybe Tyr may try to disrupt.
    - attacked by ruffians in purple cloaks - they fled
    - also attacked by long range spellcaster - fireballs and illusions of an adventuring party
    - dead guy buried in city of the dead, priests seemed concerned about something at end of ceremony 
    - Barid got info on red wizards, says it is not just, but his superiors that are giving orders.
      They have taken an interest in not just Morticia, but the whole party as well.
    - Barid arranged for the Grand Bloodletter to raise Oriana and Shodan using Church of Bane outside Waterdeep 
      and then had a Geas placed on each of them.
    - Shodan and Dwor spotted a street urchin following them, just as they were about to leave for the Church 
      of Bane outside of Waterdeep, but the street urchin fled because it knew they had spotted it.

6.  Dolora's pet Taylor went missing, kidnapped by persons unknown and wound up in the hands of some Hags 
    and their ogre servants.
    - Tormod was slain by the Annis Hag. 
    - Dolora's cult decided not to put forward the funds to raise Tormod from the dead. He stayed dead.
    - The rest of the party looted his corpse, what little that could be found amongst Tormod's gooey remains.
    - Taylor was rescued and returned to her mistress, Dolora.
    - The Hag's plan had been to turn Taylor into a hag to be the third member of their coven, and then have 
      her return to the party to spy on them. The Question remains, were the hags allied with any of our enemies?

7.  Volo lost a friend, Flune Blagmaar, a handsome human male with blond-red wavy ginger hair. Flune is flamboyant
    and was wearing princely clothes when he went missing two nights ago from the Steward Dragon Inn in Dockward 
    located between Net Street and Fillet Lane.  
    - Volo has provided an advance of 10 dragons (10 pp or 100 gp) each for agreeing to find his friend.
    - Volo has promised 100 dragons (100 pp or 1000 gp) each if they find Flune and bring him back to Volo.
    - Volo will be staying at the Yawning Portal Inn for the next 30 days if he needs to be reached.
    - Flune Blagmaar rescued - collected the reward from Volo (promised 100 pp each, but only got 500 gp each)
			     - provided a deed for the Trollskull Tavern - Dwor's name now on the deed
