After resting up at the tavern the group (sans Pip the Investigator) decided to re-investigate some of the buildings that got burned down the during the start of the martial law. One of which was the burned down tavern on the waterfront. Investigations into this building would be a tad bit difficult since the tavern was now underwater and none of us knew how to swim.
A simple solution presented itself, Danar the Arcanist could cast touch of the sea and air bubble upon himself and quickly investigate the submerged building. The only problem with this plan was that he knew neither spell, which meant he had to trek all the way to the market, buy the scrolls for these spells, transcribe them to his spellbook, then prepare them for the next day. Because of all of this and some poor planning on the order in which the buildings would be investigated, the group spent a day and a half on the investigation with most of that time spent walking around the city. No major clues were gained though a few things like a bottle of cherry were found.
Disheartened with their search, the group was glad when they were approached by Rexus, who told them that his presumed-dead mother might still be alive and in hiding. The probable hiding spot? Horcum’s fantasmogorium, an abandoned curiosity shop/museum and the location of an archivist safehouse.
The investigation of the fantasmogorium did not go smoothly, upon entry within from the side entrance the group was beset upon a group redactor monks and the most annoying invisible cleric in the history of ever. Thankfully, due to Kalos using a potion effectively and a last second color spray out of Danar that incapacitated the cleric; the group managed to survive, barely.
After that the group interrogated the monks, learning that the cleric left probably undead guards around the building and that the monks claimed to have no knowledge of the hidden safehouse.
Then Danar executed the captive monks and the group took some much needed rest, next to all corpses.
