As the crowd fled from the sight of the Fiery hellhound Pellius found himself grabbed by a handsome young man wearing a single leather glove. Unable to resist the gentleman led him away from the panicked townsfolk. After a couple of minutes they entered a small courtyard in the backstreets. Pausing to take a breath Pellius’s benefactor introduced himself as Rexus Victocora, unfortunately that was all he managed to get out before another group of chellish thugs jumped them. A flash of blinding colours later and Rexus was down, along with four of the gang, but there was still five standing, and they were out for blood. The young swashbuckler called despeartely for help and by a miracle Terhil strode round the corner, only to be felled by one of the thugs. Luckily he was backed up by Percy and Erik. Despite a rocky start the fight was soon over and all of the assailants were unconscious. Rexus seemed very thankful for the rescue and suggested retreating to a bookstore he knew nearby.
In the quiet back room of the bookstore Rexus explained that he was the son of the noble family whose house had been burned down on the night of ashes. Both his parents had been slain and he had discovered that his mother was in fact a secret member of the Sacred Order of Archivists, an order dedicated to recovering the true history of Cheliax. He explained that there used to be a group known as the Silver Ravens who stood against Cheliax in Kintargo, and there was inforation about them in an old livery in the south of the city. Asking the party to accompany him on his investigation it was clear that he intended to facilitate the re-establishment of the Silver Ravens with the party at the centre of them.
So all they had to do was recover the information from the livery, gain the support of the people, overthrow Barzillai Thrune and free Kintargo from the yoke of Cheliax… Simple… what could go wrong..
