"Lead on, Lady Kalima.  I am sure you can sense these demon spawn much better than we", Mancini said with a bow.

Oly swings by the guild, knowing the group is making a beeline to Twilight house, and encounters the team from Return to Shevnia.


Kalima continues to make an impression on the townsfolk, and quite a few clear out of the way, although one person who seems to be of ogrish descent whistles at her.

She is heading north through redlight toward the black spire of Twilight house. She pauses at some occult themed graffiti in an alleyway, and follows arrows in it until she comes to a blank wall, with a faint outline of a door. The prods it with her spear, and pushes at it, then turns to you.

"A traveling shop?"  Ardenas blinks at the door outline.  "That seems like great magic to use on such a routine basis as running a shop."

"I have seen such things before, built of illusions, staffed by demons, promoting their cause any way they can; distributing blasphemous instructions on how to summon them, selling the tools of demonologists, all to forward their unholy aims of establishing a hell on earth."

"I have, alas, only the means to fight against them, defend against them, give permanent rest to the dead that they may not be raised to walk, and to become invisible, which makes my ears buzz. I know their signs and forms, but cannot seek them by any power I have. Such places have a habit of returning until they wreak their fill of havoc. I s7spect though, given their perverse natures, that they might reopen shop within sight of one of those holy edifices with the spires."
She points over toward the minerets of the mosque, and the towers of the cathedral.

"I wish I knew. I am sure there are spells that could be refines to seek out fiends, but I only have my lore, and the familiarity I have with them so as to know them on sight. Many are insidious,  and use glamours to conceal their nature. We need another strategy."

In reply to Aoife (msg # 912):

"I was sent because a hellmouth opened, and upwards of three dozen infernals were known to be in the area. I thought they would be easy to find. I have seen one of the shops before, and subtly blasphemic graffiti has always been the way to find them. There they disseminate summoning instructions and tainted magical objects for unbelievably low prices. If we find a demon or a cultist, they will know where the shop is.
What do we know of the cultists? Have any of you dealt with them?"

"I can ask if the Guild knows of any strange demonologist shops."

(OOC:12:56, Today: Mancini rolled 10 using 3d6.  Area Knowledge (Guild) (15)-- if there were any strange demonologist shops popping up recently. Roll passes.)

In reply to Mancini (msg # 916):

The guild per se does not have any services for demonologists, but you remember hearing of at least one person with infernal background several week ago, it had caused some scandal for Camilla with her client the Bishop of Sonne. Still, one hears of things, and a shop with services has been reported in several locations in the Redlight district here. Where there are readily available manuals on summoning, there tend to be demons...

"Ah!  Good thinking!  The docks are this way."  Ardenas points toward Dockside.

You head out of redlight, away from the Cathedral and toward Dockside. You notice more of the Sahudese population  bustling about than you usually see, as they live on the western end of Dockside, where it meets Temple and Artisinal. One robed rellow seems to be gathering an audience of out of work mercenaries...

The smell of salt water is stronger...along with the heavy aroma of the fishmarket.

"I have a feeling this guy isn't here to start a debate society", Mancini said coolly to Aoife.

Mancini decided to go closer towards the guy, trying to hear what the guy in the robes was saying to the fighters.  Maybe he could mess up the message, or at the very least find out what something useful.
