The Burning Skies of Elysium
The Journey So Far
Pephennas clutched his head as he awoke with an awful headache and no recollection of how he had ended up in a jail cell. The sunlight from the barred window hinted towards early morning and so with great reluctance he stood up. He quickly noticed that the cell was much more decorated and cared for than what you would expect from a jail-house.
A low pitched voice greeted him from a cell next door, inside there was a small gnome with a long white beard and a red pointy hat, next to him sat a large furry dog with a small saddle on its back. The gnome introduced himself as Rel Gravel, he had wandered far and ended up here in Thistle, expecting soon to arrive company.
Shinkh Reltar had been on the road for what must now be more than a month. He had left his home in Stark to follow his mentor to a city in the south for reasons unknown to him. Despite the long journey and the many perils on the way they had finally made it to Thistle. It was not much to look at compared to the greatness of Starks grand temples and castles. However it was still better than the many small farm villages they had spent the nights in on the way. Master Giovanni made his way to the guard captains quarters and Shinkh was made to wait outside while the two spoke.
After a long talk, Master Giovanni left the building, being led by a large well dressed man. His hair was well kept and his posture and presence both gave the impression of authority. The symbols on his uniform quickly revealed that he was guard captain Hestus. A nobleman of Thistle and a storied fighter in his youth. Shinkh made haste to catch up as they headed off down the main road.
Shiba Redhorn had worked tirelessly for days as the steady stream of new prisoners came to the jail-house. The cells were filling up and they had to use the cells reserved for noblemen and witnesses to house common criminals. The days had become increasingly chaotic. The amount of people fighting over mundane issues and the number of murders had greatly increased as if people were going mad. Nevertheless he had a job to do, he was to guard the jail-house as second in command to Warden Borlow.
As Shinkh walked through the doorway he was met by the loud cursing of prisoners as they argued with the guards on duty. They walked past the commotion into a doored off hallway where decorated cells lined the right wall. In the first cell sat a gnome, eagerly awaiting the company of Giovanni. The master wizard began conversing with the gnome with careful whispers. Unheard by the others, however the curious elf next door tried to eavesdrop but understood only that the gnome had found an object of great importance.
