As the party deliberated on which material to go find, Reginald announced that he would travel no further with the party, as he wanted to seek mercenary work.
I’m not in the business of saving the world. – Reginald
The party decided to first retrieve the cursed flagon, which could be found in the city of Craus, known equally for its artistic flair and wealthy aristocracy. The man they were looking for was Rando Elmere, a merchant and city council member who had possession of the flagon. Unfortunately, he had earlier sold it to a buyer from Daerun in Yar V’tel.
Before leaving town, the party met two elves: Wild Hawk, rebellious musician, and Ivillious, gentle father of three. They traveled through the Barrier Jungle and arrived at Daerun, the tower city.
Inside, they learned that the city had secluded its non-elf population to a single district in the tower. Their lives were miserable. The monarchy had recently accused the city of harboring Melora’s Children. Because of this, there was an intense military presence in the city.
Matters when complicated when it was discovered that the buyer of the flagon had been murdered, and his possessions taken.
The party discovered that Melora’s Children were indeed hiding in the city, acting as watchful protectors over the disenfranchised non-elves. They also were in possession of the flagon. The party defeated the guards of the flagon, retrieved it, then left the city immediately.
