And Justice for All (part 1)

Benjamin, Henry & Porelyn (NPC)

Jacques was very sought after at Hom. Everyone wanted to talk to him, or at least see him. Nobody knows what it means that a Joshuan has appeared, but everyone agrees that it has to mean something. Jacques himself found it very stressful because he is not used to so much people and fuss.

One day they saw Hal Ninva and Mek stand and talk and Mek shouted that you are both competent and volunteers. Hal had been informed that a Sheban Lorekeeper named Tanya Ever’on would be sacrificed to the Z’Bri at the Circle of the Chosen. (That´s were the tribes sacrifices the “volunteers” to maintain the ceasefire with the Z’Bri.) Porelyn (Joanite / Jacker) would accompany as a guide, and Meks henchmen Toro and Mason followed as muscles.
They would leave an hour before dawn to have plenty of time to prepare for the rescue, but outside they saw a riot outside of Junks. Somebody has been murdered at Junks during the night. A shorter investigation seems to make it clear that Diarmet Swiftspear (Joanite / Jacker), the leader of Burning Fury, killed Zackari (Evan / Herite) from Kila’s Own. None from the two cells were here, so even though the atmosphere was harsh, they decided to complete the original assignment.

The trip north went smoothly through Talon Nexus (a rift that used to be a subway line). Even getting under the seven fingers was easy when Porelyn showed the way.
At the Circle of the Chosen they hid and waited for the joanite patrol to come at dusk. They quickly tied Tanja Ever’on to a pole before they quickly disappeared.
While Benjamin freed Tanja, four swollen wolves came out of the woods and attacked. The group suffered some damage, but managed to defeat the wolves before a Flemis appeared. Benjamin immediately lost all his will but could be led away by the others during a quick retreat. They went back under the wall and down into Talon Nexus where they rested during the night.

In the evening they had come back to Hom. Apparently everything had not settled on Hom. More dead and on the verge of riot. Tanja was handed in safely by Deus and Altara Ven who would help her write down her chronicle again.

The others went to The Cage to listen to the rant Kymber Reva convened due to the escalating conflict between Burning Fury and Kila’s Own. Alhanna (Yagan / Doomsayer) from Burning Fury has been killed by Reshi, Deker and Myfai from Kila’s Own, which in turn was killed by Diarmet during the conflict. Including these, about a dozen died in related conflicts last day. Neither Burning Fury nor Kila’s Own had appeared at the rant. Kymber Reva was very concerned with not knowing how she would solve the situation. Then a sheban / lightbringer named Oscar jumped on the scene, suggesting that an independent tribunal should be added to solve what has happened and also judge the guilty. Some members of the congregation agreed, while others loudly protested. Raven then suggests that conflicts should be resolved with duels.

The gang decided to go and talk with the people involved to find out what had happened. After leaving their weapons, they entered the Burning Fury where they talked to Diarmet, Joanna (Agnite / Jacker) and Kelley (ex-serf). Diarmet told them what had happened: He and Joanna had been to Junks where Joanna usually danced to all the guests’ delight, which usually leads to a number of suitors that Joanna politely denies. Zackari, however, was obstinate and Diarmet intervened and pushed him away. Then he took a weapon from a table and attacked. Diarmet then killed him quickly. After that, they quickly left. Joanna nods approvingly.
At the second incident, he and Alhanna were out on the town when Reshi, Deker and Myfai attacked them and killed Alhanna. He then killed the three who attacked them.
Diarmet explains that because he was attacked, he has not done anything wrong and therefore does not want to apologize. On this occasion, Porelyn saw a doubt in Joanna who sought contact with Kelley who seemed to agree with Joanna.

After this they went to Kila’s Own. There they talked to Kila the Fat (Evan / Herite) and Jen-Ryduck (Sheban / Lightbringer), but Wid (Agnite / Herite) was in the room without taking part in the conversation. Morn (Agnite / Herite) tried to make excuses to be in the room until Benjamin intimidated him and he left the room. Kila told them what had happend: Zackari was a happy and innocent Evan who didn´t harm anyone. When he was murdered by a knife in his back, he was unarmed with only a spoon in his hand. Reshi and his companions decided on their own to confront Diarmet when they saw him in town. It ended when diarmet had killed them all three, and Deker had been chopped in the back.

After this meeting, they decided to see if they could shadow Morn. In the evening, Morn and his two companions Grim and Pridairig come out of the house. They talk about Kila’s failure to handle the situation and that Morn should take over the leadership of Kila’s Own. He also says “this time it will be better than when I tried to take over Raven’s Shadow”. They returned to the house and immediately thereafter comes Wid sneaking out. He sneaks down to Burning Fury where he is building a bridge so he can get into Burning Fury unnoticed. Once he has finished, he returns home. Before the gang goes away, they see that Thesselly (Agnite / Jacker) comes out and receives a food delivery at dawn. They talk to her and she confirms Diarmet´s story and that her sister Joanna usually gets many suitors on Junks, but she always accompanies Diarmet home.

Gilbert, Henri & Benjamin.

The characters were under Skyrealms and Jen watched them and quickly realized that she would not try to take Sacha away from them. The next day, when they slept one night on Hom, Sacha told them what had happened.
She was a Yagan who was sent out by Ariel to spy on the Fallen. After her tattoos were removed, she infiltrated Dreamweavers. Their cell went out in Outlands a few weeks ago. There they met three Dahlians (Jev, Darun & Trina) whom they shared camp with. Later in the evening a man came running with a flock Gek’roh afterwards and battle broke out. The Gek’roh was defeated and the man told them that his name is Jacques and he is a Joshuan from Mahgog. When Dahlians heard this, they attacked the Dreamweavers to try to kidnap Jacques. Sacha fled for her life. On her way back to Vimary, she was captured by a Joanite patrol and sent to Judge Sakai. He sentenced her to be left in Skyrealms to die.
To try to find Jacques, they asked Montfort and he had seen two Dahlians pass over the South Tier Bridge a few days ago. Thanks to Gilbert’s Wisdom ritual, they found out that Trina lay dead in the wilderness, Darun was on a brothel in the Bazaar and Jev wandered with a prisoner in Duskfall Forest. They found the drunk Darun and forced him the information that Jev was about to hand over Jacques to Ariel. Before leaving the Bazaar, Illiam showed up and told them that he collaborated with Ariel and that she was now heading west to Griffentowne.
After two days of hiking through Eve’s cultivation land, they arrived at Griffintowne. There they entered the Prancing Pony Inn. They met an Evan guide, Rinna, who offered to help find their way in the forest. Jen and some cavalrymen showed up and Jen informed them that Judge Sakai wanted to talk with them outside the village. They followed her and Sakai told them he would call off the Watch if they brought Ariel to him. Doubtfully, they decided to perform his mission.
The next day, Rinna showed them the way through the extremely dense forest and after a couple of hours they caught up with Ariel, her companions and Jacques. The group was quite large so they didn’t want to attack but instead followed the group. They hoped they would lose each other in the forest. A few minutes later, they heard how Ariel and Jacques got lost from the others. They decided to attack. Henri sneaked forward and put a knife against Ariel’s throat and she gave up. Using a dream ritual, they managed to find out that Ariel is extremely hateful to the Fallen since her childhood friend Porsh betrayed her by protecting a Fallen.
They handed Ariel to Sakai and Jacques wanted to accompany them to Hom. Rinna disappeared in a smoke cloud.

Gilbert, Henri, Benjamin & Giston.

The characters were on a routine assignment inside the Bazaar when they saw some Joanites dragging a prisoner across the square. The prisoner was a fallen called Sacha. In the square they were met by a judge named Ariel Dan’on, Ariel seemed to notice the characters in the crowd. The atmosphere began to become aggressive and the hatred of the crowd against the fallen became stronger. Sacha seemed to recognize Ariel, but Ariel showed no sign of recognizing the prisoner. The prisoner should be taken to the Skyrealms to die. Ariel pointed out the characters as fallen and the crowd tried to capture them, but with the help of Rolf, they managed to escape.

Rolf wanted help to free Sacha and, with the help of Hagbard, they went to the tower that Sacha was brought to. Up in the tower they met with three Joanites who were attacked by a hord of serfs. Jen declared that they had been sent by Ariel to free Sacha. Up in the tower two Z’Bri had Sacha tortured. They talked with the prisoner about why Ariel had brought her to them, and why she was talking about a child of Joshua. The Joanites attacked and one ran out the window and the other fought for her life.

After the battle, the escaped Z’Bri Illiam appeared again and talked with the characters while they were retreating with Jen and Sacha.
“I salute your daring, brave ones. You have your prize, but Illiam will warn you, this one is both more and less than she seems. Believe her lies and distrust her truths.”
