A number of missions into Lockenport's notorious Pit have taken place since the Lockenport Congress gave permission for the Irregulars to resume searching the maze of caverns and dungeons deep beneath the city. The goal of this mission was to continue the search for Queen Isathrain's enchanted items. Yozian Tammelnor assisted Tavius at the briefing, and outlined the most likely locations of three different items.
The Ring of the Radiant Storms is suspected to be powering one of Vex's Laboratories. Specifically the ring might be in the Lightning Laboratory hidden in the worm tunnels past the Fungus Fields. To get to the worm tunnels, they must follow the first main passage in the left wall of the Fungus Fields, and then explore the tunnels beyond the steam caverns.
The Spark Slippers are reportedly in the possession of a troll witch who lives in the deep swamps. To get to the swamps the party must keep right when following the twisty passages behind the Jaws of the Elder Eye. The third item, Queen Isathrain's Staff, was apparently tossed deeper into the Pit than the Jaws by a tentacled creature (see mission 210/01/148). Nothing more than that is known about it.
Case number: 210/02/023
Summary: The group achieved all three of their goals, recovering the Ring of the Radiant Storms from Vex's Lightning Laboratory, the Spark Slippers from the troll witch and the Queen's Staff from a pool of water which had accumulated at a sealed off section of the Pit. Most surprisingly, shortly after the group reached the “Iris”, it was opened by a representative of the drow Matriarch Yi'laskar who presented the group with important documents for “Lord” Karaden Greshtik. These were handed over to Greshtik in Guildmistress Tarn's presence.
Fatalities: Nobody was killed. Swallowed yes, killed no.
Declarations: The group declared that they had recovered a cingulum of combat rushing (which is just a fancy belt, but Uggard will get upset if I forget to use the proper catalog name!) and a primordial ring. (Possibly a match for the one found in mission 210/02/002?) They were allowed to keep both but traded in the
fancy belt cingulum for cash.
Commendations: Petru requested that Delk be commended for his research assistance in preparing for this missing. Apparently his advice about jumping was useful.
Leadership: Petru noted that Zimmijon deserved mention for acting efficiently as his second-in-command. The rest of the group's comments on their combined leadership were “explored unique angles”, “got to grips with the inside of the enemy”, “played swallow the leader”, and “didn't join the gravy train”.
