Gritty fantasy - in a city rife with crime, corruption and dark magic

Reunited (And it feels so good)
Tyla spent the day double-checking the needed improvements to the orphanage. Following the break-in, an ever-growing knot of anxiety dwelt in his stomach. Surely, the theft of the mask was careful and deliberate, but regardless, the guilt was overpowering. If his secret safe was so easily breached, let alone found, nothing in these walls was truly as safe as he thought.

A quick rap on the door, and Tyla found Bastion at his door. Word from the Marsh Gate lookout was that Ricky and the rest of his band had finally returned, and with prisoners. With as much spring as his step could muster, Tyla made his way across Lankhmar to the gate.

Upon arrival at the gate, it was clear word had travelled quickly. A small but growing number of commoners were gathering, with "The Crimson Veil" and "Peat Farmers" clearly rising through the din.

A quick parlay with the reunited adventurers found them in quite a debacle. The Peat Guild was clearly trying to make a power play of sorts, though somehow Margon and Flossin had managed to deduce the truth with a fair bit of "intense negotiating" with their captive Teras. Clearly, higher ranked people should be involved in these delicate discussions. Flossin sends a Slayer's guild member to fetch the head of the Peat Merchants, Fraelig.

The bones don't lie.
When the Gygax has it out for you, doesn't matter what you do, you are going to have to deal with it. Thankfully, Jerry gave me the heads up so I was on my guard the whole time we were heading out with these peat cutters. The salt spiders were an appetizer; I knew something wasn't right. So when I started snooping around, it was just my luck to find Tarasz note, confirming this was a set up. The Great Gygax dragged us out into the middle of the swamps to kill us. Well, Flossin isn't going down without a fight. I decided I would hide nearby and spy on this group. When the time came, sure enough, they were going to kill us. But, Jerry must have had luck on his side, because the butt of my spear struck true and Tarasz was out like a light. That stopped this fight in its tracks. Tarasz made it sound like it was us acting funny that set him off to kill us, but I know the truth. He was simply a pawn for the Great Gygax. He was going to try to kill us all along. Well not today!

Ruminations #5: Not alone...
I don't like this. We have taken control of the camp but we are not alone. Forget about the spiders, swamp beaver, and anus snakes. We came out here to find a group of experienced peat cutters, a group that knows the swamp better than us all, has killed dozens in Lankmahr and will be in a lot of trouble if we make it back alive. If we are going to survive the trip back, we will need to keep Taraz close to the end of a dagger. Maybe we can bribe the member's of the Slayer's Guild with the reward for ending the red mist... There's a reward, right? Definitely a reward. I need to warn the other's.
