In the Warrens shivel den run by the Eight Shadows, the PCs found themselves at the blue behind which they hoped to find Scarius the Vai assassin. However, after knocking on the door, then kicking it down, they found Scarius had escaped out the window and was on the roof. After only a short chase, Naesair drove his scimitars home into Scarius’s body and brought him down. After some healing, he was able to speak again, and with a promise to spare his life if he gave them the information they sought (the person who ordered Dacan Mool’s killing and why), the party reluctantly released Scarius and went to find Hadrien Runihan, fighting a band of Shivel addicts and ruffians on their way of the Warrens.
After some investigation by Kolskar and Kai’Ya, they discovered that Hadrien was often to be found at the Temple of Delights in the Temple District, though what he was doing there they didn’t know. Kai’Ya and Faustina decided to investigate the Temple of Delights, and after Kai’Ya thoroughly sampled the “wet” room, and Faustina attempted to seduce information about Hadrien from a temple goer, the gathered the rest of the party and decided it was time to face the temple and it’s priest together. They confronted Ambrise Gold, only to find that he had no love for Hadrien, who had been utilizing the temple as his own private office and filling it’s back rooms with his criminal associates. He told the party where Hadrien could be found, though disappointingly for them, would offer them no help.
The party found Hadrien in a large banquet room at the temple and told them they wanted to know why he’d had Mool killed. Hadrien Runihan merely looked down his long white nose at them, however, and dismissed them to their deaths at the hands of his associates, Vampire Spawn that began to demist around the table. Thinking the party would not leave the room alive, he did tell them on his way out through a secret back entrance that it was the Balacazars that had ordered Mools death because Mool had been dealing with the Killravens.
The adventurers had the information they needed to satisfy the task given them by the Anais, the Sister of Silence, now they just needed to get out of the room alive…
