Planning in the Ivory Elephant

🐘 One-Tusk: We move quickly to shut down entrances and exits from the city, which gives us a fighting chance to track down Magalie. We can't keep things sewed up for long, however, and I already know this city leaks like a sieve. One or two determined people could make their way out, no matter how aggressively we lock down the walls- but we can delay them.

🔥Mandrot: The Thieves Guild approached me again to sign an order. I swear they are only around to complicate things. I've got to figure out how to get out from under their debt at some point. I suspect it all had something to do with the Prestidigitator trying to get out.

🏹 Ehsan: Being that I am able to more quickly move about the city with Sameen, I dash off towards Pride HQ to inform them of the riots moving about the city. The priority is keeping the base safe and ensuring that the prisoners inside the sorcier prison are kept in lock down. With the message delivered and resources being appropriately allocated, I head back to the senate so that we can work out a plan to track down the traitors.

Looking for Magalie

🐘 One-Tusk: I focus on the rat-tunnels and secret paths smugglers use.

🔥Mandrot: I try my normal drinking hole over at the bazaar to dig up information but I'm clearly wearing my welcome thin over in this part of town. Bringing my cohorts along was not a welcome affair. I'll have to come up with a way to make the locals happier later the next time I come through here.

🏹 Ehsan: While Mandrot is busy asking around in the taverns, I get to talking to a few people on the streets. A few pieces of gold here and there loosens some lips and the information Mandrot gathered along with mine leads us to the Cemetery nearby.

Tracking Magalie

Reste des Lumières (Rest of the Enlighteners) Cemetery

🔥Mandrot: Per the treaty of the blah blah blah blah (official title) lldefons says the cemetery can't have an army

Guards of cemetery invoke the Zodiac and the kindness of Condral... I blast them to hell after giving them a piece of my mind about Condral and all it's theatrics and they didn't listen.

We find that the army inside the cemetery seems to go up a path off to the north form the cemetery. Decided to go after a set of tracks through a mausoleum that seems to be well used.

Catacombs under the Cemetery

🔥Mandrot: Magalie had an accomplice… and they were ready for us and ready to escape. After taking out the only bridge in the place… I try to work a way to get us over to the other side. Battling with Magalie wasn't my first thought plan, but it all worked out in the end and I was able to rebuild a bridge for the others.

A satual we found, had a copy of a florography book. I'll need to look for a copy of it as this one is water logged.

I cooked up some Truth serum for Bukir to interrogate him. Bukir was forced to sign papers by Magalie.

🏹 Ehsan: When we finally track down Magalie it is no surprise that Bukir is also involved. He tries to wriggle his way out of the situation like a snake, but I will have none of it. My arrows strike true and eventually bring down Magalie while we corner and trap Bukir to take in for questioning.
