Red Lantern Summaries

Skinship Raid

While complications arose, the raid was ultimately successful and the changeling ringleader known as Chenna was captured. A number of girls, including an old flame of Captain Hartigan’s, were rescued from a hidden ‘training’ area. Psychic Surgery and some Fleshshapeing had been performed on the women in order to make them better sex slaves, but Lady V Jorasco was able to develop counter agents specific to each woman. Meanwhile, the women were given counseling by someone loyal to Mistress Savia.

Inquisitive Silver and the Lost Cannith Foundry

At the behest of a changeling Inquisitive called Silver, the Red Lanterns accepted a mission to locate a missing researcher. While the arrived too late to stop the researcher’s murder, they obtain a Cannith Journal dating back to pre-Galifar days. Events took them into the depth of the Dura’s Plateau. Not only did they find an ancient schema alluded to in the journal, but they unearthed a semi-living representative of those days. Called Relic in lieu of knowing her proper name, this Siberys Marked Cannith Heir had been converted into a kind of living construct using materials fallen from the Scales of Siberys (the saturn-like ring around Eberron).

Silver revealed herself to be not only an Inquisitive, but an ordained priestess of a faith centered around the progenitor dragon, Siberys. She’s taken in Relic in order to protect her and familiarize her with modern days. Meanwhile, the schema was turned over to House Cannith with an understanding it would be invested in Sharn.

The Marble Eye of Sythrael

Information found its way to the Red Lanterns as to the location of one of the last two fragments of Sythrael. This Lamannian / Syrannia halfbreed had been sublimated into a marble statue several decades ago, and was shattered when The Glass Tower floating in Godsgate fell out of the sky; eventually turning the area into the slum now know as Fallen.

Following the lead on the Eye fragment’s where-abouts, the crew sought the aid of Gaia Sotharr, a devotee of the Silver Flame, and her responsibilites concerning the City of the Dead. For it was in this Necropolis that the Eye was to be found.

Suffice it to say, events could have gone much better. Many assumptions were made about the nearby presence of a Lich called Gath, a Lamannian Shadow Nymph heading to meat with Gath, and just what their interest in the Eye might be.

As it developed, the Eye was used by Gath in some kind of Ritual involving a new form of flesh golem or humanoid simulacrum, called a Mimeoi, and Gath’s transformation back into a living but nearly immortal state.

Further Investigations

In the bitter taste aftermath of these recent events, the Eye was submitted to Kaelys Tela for a psychometric reading and various individuals were consulted on related matters.

  • The Ritual involving the eye may have transferred Gath’s Soul into a new body, but not without expense. The body itself is mortal, designed much like the Devas of Syrannia. Like the deva, Gath will reincarnate fully formed without the need for a phylactery. Unlike deva, Gath will retain full knowledge of his existence, but his physical abilities and magical ‘capacity’ are greatly reduced during this rebirth. How much time is needed for him to rgain his full strength is as yet unknown.
  • The Shadow Nymph of Lamannia

The layers of investigation were followed; one relating to the City of the Dead and one to the subject’s domain within Lamannia.

It has come to light that the influences of Mabar and of Lamannia are antitheses of each other. Necrotic effects, specifically from the undead, are blunted within Lamannia. Also, the ‘High Fey’ of Lamannia not only have limitations on their power outside their own domains, but necrotic fields (such as durign a Mabar Passage) can greatly weaken them.

The theory is that, while still potentially overpowering, these entities would avoid personal conflicts outside their own domains on principal so as to not put their limitations to the test.

Also under investigation is the social etiquette that comes into play between these higly powerful entities, but as yet no solid intel has been acquired.

The Sub-Goddess speaks
the month of Zarantyr, 999 YK

Tiva "So, as everyone else is too busy to keep a chronicle of any kind, I’ve decided to write soem stuff down just in case Savia wants a better record.

“Well, our Red lantern members finished their investigations down near the Cogs. They somewhat defused the conflict between the warforge ex-soldiers and the Foundry leader, Molric. This proved lucky in fact, as one of those warforged managed to lead our Red Lanterns to the murderer’s lair, once it was revealed that the one called Copper was behind them.

“The Lair wasn’t easy, having traps, a ravid with its animated objects, Copper himself… AND his composite warforged. The crazy ‘forged seemed to think warforged were imperfect since they were made by human hands, and was ’freeing’ the ones he killed in order to make a Perfect Warforged. Well, our Lantern were having none of thet, and defeated both mad creator and creation.

“They tried to hold Lord Slogar d’Cannith responsible, but politics got in the way. Supposedly Lord Merrix d’Cannith was going to sanction Slogar, but who knows.”

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

“After this, things got a bit confusing to keep track of. Captain Terry basically dragged the crew around trying to follow up on loose ends of earlier incidents. This led to more conflicts with members of various gangs, included what is reported as some shadowy characters with the Mark of Death!

“Mainly, however, the Lanterns tracked down information about the owner of the torched carriage service, an elf named Tobias Fek. He also had partial ownersip of a warehouse in the theater district, the Eleventh Torch. The Lanterns raided the place shortly after thwarting part of a kidnapping of people from Syrannia, and freed a member of the elder race of Syrannia, a Syran named Faye.

“While checking on the well being of the first two rescue-ee’s, a pair of Rohan from Syrannia, the lanterns fought off a Daask inspird riot, wraiths, and shadowy monks. It seems there is some kind of plot going on p in Syrannia that’s overflowing down into Eberron. A Romuh Mystic, that’s a near human race native to Syrannia, is apparantly behindi the kidnap of the Rohan and may have requested the capture of Faye. The Romuh, Ernesto, is a prominent and respected figure in Syrannia, so that’s likely to get complicated fast.

“Meanwhile, the Lanterns finished planning their raid on a Dragoneyes brothel believed to be behind a slave ring. The changeling posing as a halfling, Chenna, is actually one of ’Chenna’s Shadows,’ with the real Chenna being an ancient doppleganger and member of the Tyrants.

“But first, to replace his Watchman’s shield, Terry took the crew to his family vault in the City of the Dead. They ran into a Lamannian incursion, Terry’s half brother Ulmar, and a pair of Silver Flame members, including Eris’ once best friend and betrayer, Thetis!

“Whew! Done for now. They’re raiding the Skinship shortly, so I’ll record more afterwards.”

Murders in Blackbones
the 9th of Zarantyr, 999 YK

Brigade arrived in the early morning with some Watch updates and a request. A comrade in arms sent him a letter detailing concerns over a series of warforged murders in the Blackbones industrial ward in the upper Cogs. Realizing he lacked significant skills of investigation, Brigade sought the aid of his commander, Terry, and his associates.

Thus, the four Red Lanterns and Brigade descended into Blackbones to speak with the latter’s former comrade, Ash, in a warforged ‘taven’ called the Red Hammer. Thus far, the investigation has discovered the following: all but the last victim had body parts neatly amputated, a small link of gold chain was found at multiple crime scenes, each victim was killed by a powerful dagger thrust into the center of their chest, and the last victim had copper residue upon his fingers.

As the group continued the investigation, they ran into a fleshie vs warforged confrontation…

Jackan, Boggles, and Boromar
the 8th of Zarantyr, 999 YK

After an early morning breakfast, the four primary members of the Red Lanterns set forth and returned to Lamannia. Met by the local Protector, Shihoin, the crew listened to her scout’s report an proceeded on the planned raid of a ‘hidden’ Boromar encampment. Their first obstacle along the way was a michevious kleptomanic of a Boggle and it’s pet displacer beasts. Later, the group ran into some local allies of the Boromar, the jackal-headed humanoids called Jackan.

Eventually, the gorup neared the camp and dealt with a group of Boromar on patrol, scouting, or who had set up a deliberate ambush. Shihoin’s felidae allies took these into custody as the group presse on. Nearly a dozen Boromar halflings were at the encampment when the Red Lanterns arrive. Their capture of the winged Felidae, Mel, angered Shihoin, an dshe rushed in to do battle. The determined crew soon felled all the halflings and investigated the camp.

Fey Panther cubs were found in on structure, and a ‘silk farm’ of fist sized Lamannian spiders in another. The group takes time to rest from the raid while their new captives recover enough to be interrogatted…

A short time after his return from his encounter with Shihoin of Arborea, Terry met up with Grim and Caren – plus Tiva and her associate Selene, an immortal of Syrania serving pennace in Eberron for ‘accidentally’ acquiring worshipers.

Meanwhile, at the tavner called The Gentry, Eris and Lum encounterd a pair of Silver Flame templars.

Problems with Plants
Afternoon til Evening - the 7th of Zarantyr, 999 YK

The Red Lanterns have secured Colrac Hall; allying with the local wildens with Korinn as an intermediary. There was much discussion as to how to deal with the statue that was once a Fallen Syranian. The statue remains incomplete, lacking one eye and a section where a heart could be.

Ultimately, it was decided to let Korrin continue her investigation in the Lamannia interphase in the area and leave the statue alone. They reported to Kaelys Tela and received their 600 gp reward along with additional information about the Fallen Syrania, the Glass Tower crash, and the conflict with the Lords of Dust that was essentially the cause.

The two girls wnet to enjoy spending some of their rewards. Grim spent time with Caren, and Terry was set do work out some frustrations in the HQ’s workroom. However, he instead slipped into Lamannia itself, on the Lower Boles of Arborea, where he encountered the local Protector Shihoin

Meneliths and Madness
Late Morning - the 7th of Zarantyr, 999 YK

It was discovered that the teenaged raver was the ‘speaker’ mentioned by one of the ravers. He spoke in different voice, both masculine and feminine. From the sound of things, the district of Fallen had been scoured clean of all fragments of the Statue the Stone Keepers have been restoring; which explains in part the theft of the hand from Kaelys Tela.

Some personalities jumped to the conlcusion the Red Lanterns were enemies, and ordered the Stone Keepers to attack. One especially brutal personality didn’t distinguish between allies and enemies, and ended up beheading a Stone Keeper.

A scholarly personality gained prominance after a mental assault by Eris, and the Red Lanterns were able to question the teen… for a time. But just as things were getting interesting and the secret of Fallen might have been revealed, the original personality of the raver emerged, paniced, and fled.

Making the best of the situation, the Red Lanterns ascended the tower and finally defeated the plantimal bushcats with the aid of the wilden’s moss drakes…

Morning - the 7th of Zarantyr, 999 YK

After the (at least to Eris) worrisome visit between Faela and a servant of the Silver Flame ‘princess’ named Thetis, the group set forth back towards Colrac Hall. The taking of an alternate route prooved somewhat problematic; passing through a swamp-like are after the heavy rains of the previous night. Avoiding ravers, the Red Lanterns entered a mossy ruin inhabited by bullywugs and some sort of swamp golem.

As Terry rethinks his opinion that the return of nature to Fallen might be a good thing, the group arrives at Colrac Hall in time to see a group of Stone Keepers presenting their finds to a teenaged raver…

Curses, Kitsune and Secrets Revealed
Evening to Morning - the 6th & 7th of Zarantyr, 999 YK

After a barely informative interrogation of their one prisoner, the Red Lanterns decided to withdraw for the being and rest up at the Church of the Silver Flame. Church in sight, but enemies close at hand, they made a break for shelter. Just as Eris stumbled, a new figure appeared to steady her feet and then cover the group’s retreat by engaging the Ravers in the downpour of rain.

As the group discussed and rested, two unusual characters appeared at the churche… a Gnome servant of the Silver Flame and her talking white fox ally. The latter discerned a Curse upon Lum, and briefly countered a part of it to reveal Lum as a cat ear and tailed humanoid.

Meanwhile, Terry revealed he had a daughter and Eris spoke more of her past…

Rat Kings and plantimals
Late Afternoon - the 6th of Zarantyr, 999 YK

Once at Colrac Hall, the group did a little investigation. After sealing shut a door, beyond which ravers could still be heard, they checked out a ruined library and then an abandoned feast-hall. Rats of unusual size and some rat kings tried to make a meal of them, but the Red Lanterns prevailed.

Beyond the feast-hall was discovered a trio of wilden, sentient plant creatures, and a pair of moss drakes. The Red Lanterns used diplomacy rather than brute force and learned a few things, the proceeded up to the next level of Colrac… where they were seriously injured by one Stone Keeper and several bushcats…
