Everyone rushes out the door and Auric turns to cast another web. The guards didn't even have a chance to react as the party skated past them. With Auric's spell, the remaining three guards were trapped inside.

Unfortunately, the party ran into a larger force of guards speaking with a familiar well-dressed, bearded gentleman who has fallen from the party's favor... Khklkhd.

"Allow me to handle this. I am certain it is all a misunderstanding," he says, approaching the party. "Isn't that right? This is a misunderstanding?"

Now that's a twist, hopefully he heard what I yelled, lol.. :oops:

 

Surprise at the turn of events, Auric pauses in his tracks as if anticipating Khklkhd arrival or intervention. Although within his spell of message to the group, ~~Now this is a predicament.~~

Auric answers the question at hand, "I think so, but you might want to talk to Lady Morr, for she's saying we're her commodity, Khklkhd. Our response was to get away and run to meet you at the Cogs. She should be washing herself off some goo, but we're here to find information on Kaurien and that turns to be more of a dead end here."

I'm telling the truth. Honest. :twisted:

Khklkhd looks to the guards and says, "Lady Morr is safe and sound. You hear? I told you she was! She came and told me about a group of imposters pretending to be her friends. I will bring this group to see her, and if they are the imposters, I will of course turn them over to you. If they are her friends, as I hope they are, then we will all have a good laugh about this."

With a hurt expression, Khklkhd says, "And now my patron wishes to meet you, without the benefit of quality attire. Let's go."

The guards stand around confused, not sure what to do. Then the head guard says, "I cannot allow this group to leave. They will be taken into custody until Lady Morr herself can confirm or deny these allegations."

Khklkhd sighs and says, "I tried my best. Perhaps I can get you released, but this guard certainly will not hear of it."

With a thought he states to the others, ~~Yet, this may be a good thing taken by the guards and ask for Jayleth? What do all of you have in mind?~~

A sighed expression comes from the Aerani.

With the threat of violence subsiding, the guard quickly calm the situation and separate onlookers from the priests and the party. The guard who is in charge stands among everyone and asks, "What happened here?"

(No one has been moved anywhere yet. You are still in the street.)

"A huge misunderstanding, but I think their finding their answers quite well at hand officers. Although we would be more than glad to go with you for words and clarity to clear ourselves." as the elf attempts to diplomatically suggest for the guards to take them.

Reverard Akhala steps forward and offers, "As I have tried to tell your companions, these heathens entered our temple with claims of having seen one of our fallen champions return as the Silver Flame. Being the benevolent order that we are, I believed them and took them to speak with Archeirophant Morr. She asked them questions, and at every turn, their lies became more apparent. As she sent me to bring word to Khklkhd," he points to the bearded old man, "I could hear her call them out on their lie. Apparently, they threatened her if she didn't go along with it, but our brave Archeirophant would not be bullied.

"They became more angry until finally, they attacked her. We could hear her cry out as they slashed at her and threw her around the room. We tried to call in to see if she was still alive. I am so proud that the power of the Silver Flame saved her from these madmen. When these men realized their deceptions had failed, they tried to fight their way out. But seeing the mass of guards who answered my call, they now are ready to accept their fates. May their punishments be swift and just."

The head guard listens to the entire story, then looks to the party to see if they wish to add anything.

With the statement of the reverand, Auric adds "There you have it. I'd rather talk to someone higher than some folks, who accuses us officers." as his expression seems so cordial. "Khklkhd, it has been a pleasure, although the reverand and the archheirophant detest hope to see you sometime at the Cogs, as we need to take care of this mess that we're being accused off. Say thanks to Lady Morr." as he bows in gesture to Khklkhd. "Your patron will have to wait for this, Khklkhd. You seem to have a problem with them." as he whispered a glance at the temple.

The head guard nods, "So, you admit to the charges then? Excellent. This alleviates the need to wait for Lady Morr. Lock them up boys."

"Tis had been a pleasure." while shaking his head towards the reverand's direction. "Hope you find Kaurien, as he has a message to your people, reverand." as he turns and follows the guards without agreeing to the question at hand, "Can we leave now please, officers."

The head officer repeats, "No argument from anyone?!? This just makes my job simple! Bring them to prison." Auric, Art, Galeth, and Goratash are placed in manacles and escorted into a vehicle akin to a skycab, only with a larger passenger portion. Several guards enter with the party who remain in manacles during the trip.

As the last temple guards leave; Auric states, "Can I cordially express my thanks officers, they're lunatics in there." as he starts a conversation, "Do we really need to be manacled, if we're here to converse and chat officers?" aiming the questions to the guards.

Edited by DM. Cannot cast spells with somatic components while within these manacles.

Auric announces to the rest in their minds. ~~~ I'm impeded by these manacles, but Rain can you claim a key for us? ~~~

"Alright, alright... no need to be pushy, but I do need to go to the palace. The king needs the answer of the Silver Flames." as he buys more time for Rain or to see the reactions of the guards.

Note that Rain was not taken captive. Outside the cab, you might have assumed that Rain was receiving your messages, but since he went invisible, he has been rather difficult to keep track of. One thing is certain. He is not in the cab.

The "cab" has two parallel benches on which the prisoners and guards sit. The prisoners (you) are manacled to the floor of the cab. You four prisoners are towards the front of the cab with six armed guards at the rear. A small glass window allows the driver to see the passengers.

Yes, the guards have placed your weapons in a secure box in the cab, along with any jewelry, rings, belts, or other items which are frequently magic in nature. The trip has just begun. It will end at validation tomorrow. Pretty much, anything that you want to attempt during the ride needs to be attempted before tomorrow.
