Dark Lantern's Light

De and Lucan head up to find someone in the King’s Watch. There were several people in the warehouse/living area where the Kalishtar were found. No one looks particularly interested in them being there. People seem curious but nothing out of the ordinary. Lucan pulls someone off to the side, slipping them a silver, and telling them to watch the path. There will be members of the Watch coming, if someone else comes, don’t stop them but tell the Watch. There is another silver in it for you. He haggles for a second silver when the Watch comes.
They head to Underlook to find a watchmen. They find a pair close to the stairs and Lucan flashes his Citadel id and asks to be taken to the nearest watch house. They don’t look happy to have run into the two but agree. They take them to a commercial tower to a small 2nd story space. Lucan asks for a commanding officer, Sergeant Moonsnow. He is an elf. They tell Moonsnow what is going on and he promises to send four men to go down. De will show the four men mentally where the bodies are. They wait 20-30 min for the shift change.
Jemma interrupts to cast regen on d’Medani. Wraith charges in to attack the spell caster and stab her in the back. Jemma attacks one of the assailants and disembowels him. Archer hits Jemma who is still feeling the effects of the poison. The spellcaster gets Wraith and confuses him. Cord uses a metal whip on Archer 1 but misses. Wraith, in hos confusion, attacks Cord and punches him.
Jemma claws the spell caster’s legs off. She tumbles down and, quite a while later we hear a splat crunch. The other two archers run off.
Old guards leave. New guards come in. Sergeant picks the first four. Lucan explains. De takes Corporal Hershey to a cell and De shows him a mental map. Lucan shows the map to the rest. De takes his time and shows the Corporal the map. He gets a drink and they head out.
Wraith jumps off to “help” the spell caster in his confused state. He recovers. Jemma throws a rope to Wraith. She throws it at him and it bounces it off his head. Wraith misses. It wraps around his arm but still doesn’t stop him. Cord throws another rope and wraps it around his arm. There is an unpleasant sound when Wraith comes to a complete stop. People are watching. We run. Wraith breaks the arrows off so they aren’t sticking out. We get to the safe house. The guard at the entrance questions us and we give him the code words to grant access. Cord has the key. We go in and rest. We remove the arrows from D’Medani. We bring him food and drink to help him feel better so he is more likely to share his story. We make him some oatmeal.
He’s not sure who attached us. What do you know about the incident? He is an exile but he has connections. A friend came to him a couple of months ago and said he had found something a little unusual in the House. His friend starts poking around, sharing a few tidbits to the effect of a group within the House called the Disciples of Convergence. Not sure who and what they were but they had a lot of connections to other Houses. They definitely have connections with House Cannith. They started opening up the recruiting so his friend decided to try to get inside. His friend is dead. A couple of days again he comes to d’Medani in a panic. Cannith, Medaniand other organizations in Sharn have been infiltrated by the Disciples of Convergence. He talked about other plans, strange creatures and melding entities. Couldn’t really understand but he had proof that House Cannith and House Medani had worked together for the thing that happened in Rattlestone. He said it was a test/an experiment. House Cannith had created the device but House Medani put it in place. He knows that Cannith has a place where they are putting the devices together. It is near the city but not in. His friend stated that, if something happened to him, d’Medani would know where to find the rest of the information. He went back to his friend’s place and found him dead. They peeled his skeleton out of him. D’Medani went to their drop point where he knew the papers would be. He has them on him. They are on code and he offers to help interpret. He asks for 24 hour guard and Cord tells him someone from the organization will always be with him. He asks for food and Cord says he will bring some after his lunch meeting.
