Basic Plot outline
I don't really know how detailed to make this. But it might be nice to have handy

Joe has a small boat that could go up the King river to Domur.

Theories about what is going on.
Uder's conspiracy and the followers of Enirdnas are vying for the orbs. (Making us faction #3) This theory is based on the head Uder was mailed by a goblin, and the sniper who appeared to be a follower of Enirdnas absconding with one of the orbs.
The sacred book details 8 communions (rituals?) for followers of Enirdnas. These communions may be the means of unlocking the secret knowledge of Enirdnas.
Who are the Ryard family? The Ryard family is an old noble family who lost their title for betraying the king.
Where is that boat going? Why would Uder be going there?
The boat is hidden in a small port connected directly to the industrial sector not far away from the temple

Some notes on Uder:
Uder: the couselor from Prumen
- He is searching for the five divine orbs, and the book which Oculus has.
- The orbs are the key to unlocking the goddess Enirdnas' magical knowledge, which he intends to use to prevent war, famine and disease.
- He is willing to sacrifice villages to meet that goal.
- He has two of them already: Terriux and Flaviux.
- His is probably a cleric of some power. He excelled in divine studies at the University.
- He is experienced and knowledgeable. He has done quite a bit of adventuring.
- He is well-respected at the University, and a known associate of the Baron.
- There is bad blood between him and his former friend Hl'lar.
- Has a bag of holding which contains all his research materials, and the two orbs as well.
Enirdnas and her followers
The evil goddess Enirdnas is associated with the earth and magic. Her followers are rumored to be powerful spellcasters and have control over animals. (Sorcerers and/or druids?) Her chief followers are spellcasting women with tattoos on their faces.
They raised a goblin army 400 years ago, and may be leading the new one that has appeared recently.
The sacred book and 5 magical orbs are artifacts of Enirdnas.
In the past her followers were organized into 5 houses. The nature and present condition of these houses is unknown.
Uder appears to be operating for personal gain, rather than out of devotion to Enirdnas. It is likely that he is at odds with her followers.
Notes on Geography and History
Their is a problematic drug in Mergovia, which looks like a yellow paste.

Feb 05 update
Since I can't seem to log in as Militiaman at the moment, I thought I'd at least get this in. Later, I'll go back and put it where it belongs in the other posts in this thread.
Lorina- elven musician friend of H’ller’s. Not a traditional elven name. Plays at the Kobolt sailer 3x/week. She and H’llar are part of some large organization.
Old Trey – only Kobolt to serve in the Mergovian navy.
Brollar Villral: Brollar is the younger son of the baron, from the outside he looks like a young lazy rich young man. He doesn't seems to be driven by anything, and doesn't seem to care at all about the barony. The truth is that he is a very skilled assassin, ruthless killer and a criminal mastermind. He is probably one of the highest ranked member of the organisation in Mornonas and as such the most powerfull men of the city. 6’ tall, medium build w/blue eyes and brown hair.
Jt'trialaila: beautiful young elven woman in service of the baron.
Barron Villral: Said to be a short Mergoivan in his 50s, but looks to be an Axyrian in his 30s. Very interested in Mergovain oak, supposedly for his apartment.
Gortentag kar Helberg: a diplomat from the Kronerg Republic, a far away land.
The black network:
Uder is a friend of Brollar Villral (baron’s son?), who I suspect is an influent member of the black network. Uder and Brollar met very often at the castle during the last year especially in the last few months, is the black network involved and what are their interest in the story we don't know. Hl'lar told me that Uder used to despise the activity of the network, so he wonder why Uder is getting involved with them.
"The black network is a criminal organisation. They can be found all across Mergovia, Axyr and some of his colony. We don't really know who their leader is. Each area or region contains it's own independant hierarchy, customs and even activity. In Mergovia, they control drugs, illegal fighting, weapon traffic, one large bank (The agricultural bank). In the sourthern colonies they make the drugs and captures young people from all races to be sent as prostitute, slave and cheap labor to other network organisation located in country able to afford them. In Axyr they control drugs, gambling and slaves, and are involved in major construction project. I could go on for a while like that.
It is a very secretive group and we don't know much about them, even here in Mornonas. We think that their base of operation is somewhere in the industrial sector. we suspect that most shop owner there pay a monthly fee to the organisation for "protection". They have a lot of money and ressources
