[EM Event] A Brush With Death

Discussion in 'UO Sonoma' started by Lord Exmortis, May 10, 2011.

  1. The Royal Guard Hall seemed a bit quiet this evening, with only the most dedicated of soldiers hushed in their seats, waiting for Amonos. What games had kept our fellow troops away, we may never know.

    Soon Amonos arrived. He got right to the point… the museum in Vesper had been robbed! Priceless works of art were missing, and it was up to us to investigate.

    We were off! Our first stop was to visit the respected painter, Alberta Giacco. Her artwork is renowned thoughout the land, and several of her priceless works of fine art were stolen from the museum. After a brief discussion, we decided we would need to examine the museum more closely for clues.

    With little to go on from the museum, Amonos had an idea. Perhaps Bartho, the suspected smuggler might be able to help us find out who the art had been fenced to. When we arrived at Bartho’s tent, a suspicious gargoyle named Lem’Klep darted out of sight. The royal guard had encountered him before, yet he eluded us again. My reporter’s intuition tells me we haven’t seen the last of him yet. We were able to question Bartho, and though his answers were sketchy, he was able to tell us of another gargoyle knows as Sithorgra who had been asking about some paintings. Rumor had it that he was expecting a shipment at a port in Ter Mur, land of the gargoyles.

    Expecting we might run into trouble, the guard suited up for battle and we set out for the northern docks located in a small village just north of the Royal City. No sooner had we arrived and we were attacked by all manner of winged creatures. Though we were small in numbers, we made quick work of the vermin.

    As the guard regrouped, Amonos caught site of Sithorgra… sipping his ale only a few feet from the battle. As Amonos questioned him it became clear that he was a thief and a liar. Amonos called for security to detain Sithorgra for further questioning. When the dock security arrived they refused to arrest Sithorgra, and instead attacked the royal guard. We were left with little choice but to defend ourselves. By the time the fighting ended the dock security and Sithorgra were dead. But all was not lost. Hidden among the security forces belongings were some of the missing paintings we had been looking for.

    Until more could be determined about who exactly had robbed the museum, the art was taken to the Awards Hall and put on display. Hopefully the guard can get to the bottom of the mystery before any more of our valuables are stolen.

    Until next time I bid the farewell and safe journey.
