Time to solve a mystery

Case 06 - A Predator Imprisoned
I.G.I.,

Case of Bastet has been resolved by the group. Wrongfully accused by rival who was denied entrance to the party. Bastet seemed uninterested in reporting her, so offender was let go.

Group has also taken a quick task from party host -- Mr. Tobias. Details restricted by agreement, but focus on recovery of stolen item. Also suspect Tobias is involved in or in charge of local drug operation. K. seems fixated on handling this problem personally. Assuming group will continue this arrangement until we receive next mission. Will follow along cautiously and attempt to keep situation from getting out of hand.

As for the analysis of Bastet. She seems a very strait forward sort. A very capable fighter. Was not able to assess her investigative skills -- suspect apprehension of strangers or perhaps side effect of drug may have tapered her to some degree. Regardless, am of the opinion she would make a satisfactory addition to group. It seems Z. and yourself are in agreement. Will further assess on future cases.

Also worth note -- ran into a weird situation with Bastet and G. Encountered a wild boar with strange appearance. Extremely hostile. Team was able to subdue creature -- which seemingly "melted" into dark goo. Coincided with very ugly storm. Bad omen... or perhaps something we've stumbled upon? Possible complication. Will keep eyes peeled.

Expenses:
  • 1GP 1SP - Bail for persons of interests (including Bastet)
  • 7SP - Food
  • 1GP - Misc Expenses

Vindication and Drugs
Mr Iverson,

Our mission was a success. The team was able to exculpate Bastet Ra of the prostitution charge through some very impressive investigative work. I was instrumental in opening a seemingly immovable entryway into the barracks to bail out Bastet Ra.

The investigation led us to Cackle’s residence. Whilst Kit and Bastet approached the homestead, the remainder of the team waited by the street. Sometime after they entered the house, I heard someone approach our position with what looked like a weapon. I didn’t have enough time to brandish my axe so, instead, I grabbed the assailant’s mace mid-swing by the handle and hindered the attack upon Jaxson.

Later, we arrive at Tobias’ estate. Kit, Jaxson and I were hired to find a stolen artefact that has been in his family’s possession for one thousand years. In actuality, the team is using this opportunity to investigate Tobias’ drug operation. It is believed he is using his fruit trade business to distribute drugs and the artefact was stolen due to a feud.

I have been very impressed with Bastet Ra. Whilst at a bar, I noticed the waitress pickpocket Crackle and Bastet was quicker than I to call out the thief. She is not afraid of confrontation and was willing to defend someone she just met. She was also able to hold her own during an attack. We were ambushed by boars. I was able to defeat one and Bastet killed another. Those were strange creatures. They dissipated into a dark mist without a trace.

Jaxson Reporting
Hello Mr. Iverson sir,

This is Jaxson reporting on the latest assignment. I want to thank you again for this opportunity to work with such talented investigators as Crackle, Kit and Greyrock.

Regarding the investigation, we have successfully cleared Bastet Ra's name. Using the resources of the guard and local witnesses, we found that a rival of Bastet's by the name of Anaoki, made a false anonymous report to have her arrested. At the time of the arrest, Bastet had been unknowingly drugged and could not contest any of the charges. We spoke with Anaoki and convinced her to drop all charges.

We are still investigating the drugging. We have a strong lead with a seer who had performed at the party with Bastet by the name of Cackli. We believe she may have been involved in more nefarious dealings that happened that night. There was a theft of a very valuable figurine at the manor the party was held at. This figurine was said to predate the Great War. There are a lot of possibilities we are pursuing at this time, but we have no hard evidence. We are going to keep our nose to the grindstone and see if we can find the thief as well as possibly take down a local drug ring.

I have a meeting later this evening with a city guard to strengthen our position in the city, so if we break this case, we will have local support. I will keep you posted on any new findings.

So you were a prostitute, huh?
Mr. Iverson,

Firstly, I would like to thank you for sending your team to clear my name. I am very grateful for this. I’m not completely sure why you have decided that I would be a good fit with this group, but I am grateful that you have. These seem like good people who are trying to help make the world a little better place. I must admit that I am very new to the idea of helping solve crimes or misdeeds, however, I do promise to do my best. I helped with my own case some simply by providing muscle when it was called for. I am not very good with people and I do keep to myself mostly, but I will try my very best to do what is asked and needed while in your employment. I have been told that this token is meant to convey messages only to you and that they are confidential, so I feel comfortable sharing with you that I have been trying to find someone on my own that is a very dangerous person. I will place this quest aside for the time being so as not to endanger any of my new companions, but I thought it necessary to inform you in the event that something does come up that may be associated with the limited progress I have made over the last few years with that. I was able to accompany Kit to one questioning of a witness and I believe I picked up some helpful things from watching her, so I will try to be more helpful moving forward. As for now, I promise to do my very best to keep everyone safe, fighting is a skill I am very confident in. Please do let me know if there is anything you specifically need from me. Until next time, thank you again and please be well.

Finding New Friends in Aynbury
Mr. Ivy. I hope you’re well.

We were able to clear Bastet Raw’s name. To give you a quick summation, an enemy of hers lied about her to get her into trouble. We convinced this woman to withdraw the charges.

In other news. We are going to bust a drug kingpin in Aynbury. His name is Dimede Tobias. HE is a nobleman in the city. He has hired us to recover an artifact that allegedly is pre great war. So while using that as a front, I found evidence that he is using his fruit trade to smuggle drugs.

I believe that a man named Dimitrio is behind the theft of the artifact. I believe that there was some feud between Tobias and Dimitrio, and he hired a performer to steal the artifact from his house. Jaxson is supposed to gather some information on who we can turn this evidence into.

I hope to be able to wrap all of this up in another day or so.
