XP = 1502
Synopsis:
The The FishSword is arriving to Mirror Bay, as a prisoner Zuleidan Kithkany tells the two Clerics of Apollo: “ You have made a very big mistake, one that I committed years ago and it followed me every were I go. One of those mistakes that burn your soul. You should have let me kill the monster . Now the blood is in your hands… “

The Clerics tell Kithkany about the box and their quest to help people. She tells them to seek information on the “Apollo Sacrificial Dagger” that she stole from the Church of Thyatis. “ Speak to Hythus Phorous. “ – she tells them

Abhorson arrives to the The FishSword to speak to Zuleidan Kithkany and he takes custody her in the name of the Order of the Rose, taking her away from the representatives of the Church of Thyatis. “ There is no Baron Sulescu, there is no Sulescu Family! “ – speaks Kithkany, softly as she is taken away in a Phantom Stead.

Arriving to Specularum, the Band of the Wolf take rooms in The Black-Heart Lily and start their search of Canios Cassiador Sulescu visiting 4 schools, 3 temples, and even the Order of the Griffon. Some of the adventurers are able to get good leads about Canios, others, like Troyus and Raizak, are able to get bruises and humiliation.

Patriarch Hythus Phorous is not very happy about the fate of the Ceremonial Dagger and decides to bury the information in a false report that Frutumal refuses to sign: “ The ‘Apollo Ceremonial’ dagger was a magic item in the possession of the Church of Thyatis of the Kingdom of Karameikos. It was stolen by Zuleidan Kithkany years ago. The dagger was blessed by Cardinal Soto Killias. It was a holy dagger of undead slaying. “

The ghost of Leica Woodsplinter appears to Dio Stoutspark: “ You have done good for your first and easier mission! Your next step has been traced to continue your quest:
This second quest for you is to help two.
One is a dagger, the second a sheath,
First a poison vial, while second opens it.
Both are false, both are hiding.
One is searching for the other one.
Both could die by Leica’s hand.
Double entendre around all. “

Nathaniel J. Flint discovers that Lady Magda Marilenev is moving her contacts in the capital to get the votes in favor of taking control of the Barony of Sulescu once the twins are dead and no heirs are alive. As a law, Baron Zemiros Sulescu has to leave the Barony to someone chosen by the Council of Nobles of the Kingdom of Karameikos and at this moment she is first in line to get a Barony.

Raizak plans a deception to take The Veiled Society out of their back and it works. Flint disguises himself and goes to get Canios but is captured by Hush and the Veiled Society Thugs hired by Lady Magda.

The Band of the Wolf battle the Veiled Society Thug and also Hush, killing many of them and decapitating the assassin. Daero of Alfmyr takes the head back to his Iron Ring contact on the city. " Take this. I don’t need your help anyway. " Hush was actually killed by Maiavel of Alfmyr using a coup de grace.
