After a eventful shopping trip in the markets of Waterdeep. With a marriage proposal, breakup and meeting the mother of Blake’s child (another man’s wife). We met with the Council of Waterdeep to discuss the response to the cult of the Dragon’s assaults on the sword coast.
The factions and representatives were
Remi Haventree – wife to the recently deceased Arthagast Ulbrinter a masked lord of Waterdeep believed murdered by the cult. (Beautiful and honest things)
Dagault Nevermember – Lord of Neverwinter to the north of Waterdeep. (Commomers need leadership)
Connerad Brawnanvil – Dwarf ambassador from Mithral Hall. (Wants to fight)
Sir Isteval – Dragon Knight of Cormyr currently residing in Daggerford. (?)
Taern Hornblade – Wizard of Silverymoon? (?)
Marshall Ulder Ravenguard – Leader of the Flaming fists (warriors of Waterdeep) (Trust, Defense)
Order of the Guantlet
Onthar Frume – Paladin from Elturel, (Strong must defend the weak)
Most of the members reacted positively to most of the actions we had taken fighting the Dragon Cult. However most reacted negatively to the slaying of the dragon eggs back in the caves near Greenest. Also Brawnanvil was very unhappy that we had allowed the giants to keep the flying castle.
Also discussed were the Wyrmspeakers (leaders of the Dragon Cult) and their possible alliance with exiles from Thay. The wyrmspeakers have powerful magic items, Masks of Dragon based on a particular color of the associated dragon.
Two courses of action were presented at the end of the council meeting
The Drachhorn an artifact of Dragon kind was rumoured to have been found in the Sea of Moving Ice by the Tiefling wizard of the Arcane Brotherhood, Makath the crimson. The wizard and then gone missing. One proposal was to find the wizard and Drachhorn with the assistance of Captain Larushta Half face an expert captain of a ship known to ply the Sea of Moving Ice.
We decided to pursue the second option of going after Wyrmspeaker Varum at the Serpent Hills. Varum had been spotted at the Tradestation near the Boarskye bridge. It is believed he may have lost the Dragon mask and may be looking for it in the area.
