Chapter 4: Party Crashers

In preparation for a night of committing mass fraud, whilst imitating a deity, Zethro and Yulan stealthily hid outside the warehouse where N.E.T. (Neighbors Eliminating Threats) was holding their next meeting as Book and Wrecker performed their infiltration.  Somehow, in what can only be described as astronomically bad luck, two members of NET stumbled into Yulan and Zethro despite the fact that they were behind a rather impressive minor illusion.  Thinking quickly, Yulan distracted the two passersby, making them think they had agitated a snake.  In what was perhaps a somewhat overaggressive move, Yulan proceeded to bludgeon one of the men while his back was turned, forcing Zethro to do likewise to the other.  It is unlikely that any bards will sing the tale of how Zethro and Yulan proceeded to mug the two helpless passersby on the way to their neighborhood watch meeting.

Meanwhile, Book and Wrecker were making new friends within NET, who were eager to accept any outside help they could find in dealing with Ungween's sacred creatures.  Wrecker was very helpful indeed, pointing out the arachnid infestation which was plaguing the meeting location.  To the surprise of all, he took on the burden of cleansing the warehouse personally.  With his greataxe.  

As Wrecker proceeded with the much needed floor removal, Book casually deposited Zethro's mushroom poison into the group's ale.  Unfortunately, one of his newfound friends was very close by at the time, and insisted on sharing a pint with Book.  Book is not in for a pleasant evening.

Just as the meeting began building momentum, Yulan and Zethro cast their illusion.  From within Zethro's magic fog, Yulan cast 3 lightning bolts, destroying part of the roof, but miraculously not injuring anyone inside, then with a thaumaturgically enhanced voice, very clearly communicated Ungween's displeasure at NET's actions.  It seems likely at this time that the group will start taking their boats the long way around Ungween's children for the forseeable future.

The party plans on checking up on the wizard Fanch, and hopefully her apprentice Gral, if he still resides in this plane.  Irregardless, the party will also investigate the reach of the baron and his son's influence throughout the city, and perhaps start working to make their lives a little less comfortable…

Point of order, Zethro, they stumbled into you, not me. And I doubt you’d say my move was “over-aggressive” had they discovered us and shivved us both. And I certainly didn’t bludgeon him, I merely cold-cocked him with the butt of my spear, an inspired move which will likely leave him with a headache no worse than a hangover would. I don’t hear you complaining about the jingle of their silver in your pockets… –Yulan

Note to self: do not surprise Yulan in the dark.
Edit: Wear helmet at nighttime around Yulan.

Also, I intend to weave that silver into an abrasive necklace to wear under my shirt, to remind me of the crime I committed that night. I can make you one as well if you like!

If you would, I would cherish it until the Lady calls me home. -Yulan
