City Under Fire

So, what have you learned

Mmk, so you made it back to the Mage Tower.

  • Picard is arrested (by authorities within the mage’s guild, not Paladins from the city). His alleged crime? The murder of Patrick Stewart’s Daughter, Anel.
    * A sense motive check revealed he believed he was lying when confessing to the crime.
  • You head off to speak with Patrick Stewart. He informs you that you have been gone for 8 days. (Time in the library
  • In that time a Fire Portal has taken hold in a portion of town. Fire Elemental have been pouring out and burning everything in their path. We are working on a way to keep them at bay.
  • Patrick Stewart: I need time to prepare and study this research, perhaps you can help out with Controlling the waves of fire elementals spreading throughout the city?

Rewriting History: Ignore the whole shopping list questy thing. I find it boring and BS. But if you want to do a hunty gathery questy thingy, we can make it happen.

Matters of note: Stewart has the Nail of Sealing, and Picards Research. There is still an Ethereal Marauder unaccounted for.

Study Time
Travel into the Library and make it back.....if you can

Quest: Find Picard’s Research

You journeyed through the Great Library. The Library Exists in extra-dimensional Space, or a demi-plane if you will. It became unstable and cracks of the Elemental Plane of Fire and Ethereal Plane began to manifest inside the library allowing creatures to travel from their respective plane and enter the Library. Who knows what knowledge was acquired.

You found the research you sought after to allow Patrick Stewart to attempt to control the dimensional cracks found throughout the city.

You discovered the missing wizard Picard, a Planar Master. He knows all things about Planes, dimensions, transportation, and all related studies. He had supposedly been missing for quite some time.
