The next morning the adventures decided to go and visit the man responsible for the group going to the Free City in the first place, Eligos. The asked around and found he lived in the Garden District, one of the nicer areas of town. The group headed out for Eligos’s when they happened upon a parade coming down the middle of the street. They stepped aside and watched as the parade passed by. Unbeknownst to Rollo and Crag two thieves were picking their pockets. Appius and Miles just happened to notice the two would-be thieves and alerted the party to the theft. Running through the crowd Rollo shot eldritch blasts at his thief and Miles and Crag chased after Crag’s pickpocket. Septimius assisted Rollo and they were able to take down their target alive. Unfortunately Miles and Crag were a lot rougher and their target and he didn’t survive the beating. As they were bring the bodies back to were they started a Chimera in the parade broke out of its cage and began attacking the pedestrians. Crag and Septimius stepped up and began beating the creature into submission, sort of. The chimera breathed it lightning breath and rammed it other to heads at Septimius and Crag. Septimius had laid a great deal of pain upon the chimera when Crag gave a mighty hack with his great axe and the creature slumped to the ground. Appius believed the Chimera could be saved, but before he could act Septimius made two more vicious attacks to make sure the creature never harmed another person again. After a couple of minutes the pedestrians had cleared out and local militia showed up. Sandreus stepped forward and with his best smile explained the situation about the chimera and thieves. The militia not only let them go and thanked them for the service they provided the community. So militia took the last criminal into custody and helped disperse the rest of the crowd. Crag approached the circus owner and offered to by the blue dragon head of the chimera. They accepted his offer and Crag was the proud owner of a dragon head. Crag asked around and found that there was a taxidermist who would cure and stuff the dragon head for Crag for only a small fee.
After the excitement the group headed off to Eligos’s house. They found his house, a white stone wall surrounding a manicured yard of trimmed hedges and exotic fauna. A cobbled path, flanked by a pair of pools and rearing dragons statues, lead to a white marble manor house with gilded double doors and flickering golden lanterns. The group knocked on the door and were met by an aged elven servant named Pollard. He asked what business they had and who they were. Satisfied with their answer he invited them in and ushered them into the parlor where he got drinks for the party. A few minutes later a middle-aged man wearing an open red robe with a breastplate underneath entered the room. He said in a calm voice “My name is Eligos. How can I be of service?” The party explained that their adventures that had lead them to his doorstep, upon hearing the name Allustan he raised an eyebrow and said “Hmm, I never thought I would hear that name again. But nonetheless, please continue.” In the end of the stories of their adventures the group left behind several items they wanted more information about. This included Zosiel’s silver diadem, the two demon horns, the inactive talisman of the spheres, the ancient spearhead, the yellow-tined dagger, some shaving of the strange red metal, and the cylinder contain the green worm. Eligos told them also of an inn they could stay at if they mentioned his name they would get a discount, the inn was called The Crooked House. After the stay the previous night in the Religious Quarters of the Free City they decided it might be more exciting to change inns. The group headed back to the old inn gathered their belongings and headed over to the new inn.
The new inn was located in the Midnight Middle a section of the Foreign Quarters that specializes in merchants, traders, and adventurers. The building itself explained where the inn got its name. Its walls were at odd angles and none of the windows or doors were square. Despite all this the inn looked to be in good repair. Upon entering they were greeted by the proprietor, a gnome, Tarquin Shortstone XXIV. He offered them some seat and took their orders upon hearing Eligos’s name the first round of drinks were free and rooms were discounted. The group decided to enjoy the day off and relax for a change. This gave Sandreus a chance to identify some of the magic items they had found in the lizardmen lair.
