[Adventure] The Sibylline Idol (Judge covaithe)
The Sibylline Idol
Unearthed from the darkest, twisted pits a malignant force is unknowingly unleashed upon Daunton by one of the adventurers that the small city seeks to attract. Our heroes must unravel a mysterious death that could threaten the sanity of the entire island. The Sibylline Idol will thrust the heroes into an occult world that dates back before the founding of the Imperium.
Hired by Astrepius Sicilus, occultist sage and researcher at the Daunton, four are soon to be joined by a fifth. The opening scene at the Hanged Man is one of anticipation and excitement as new adventurers begin work on a new venture that none of them yet understand.

Posting & Rolling
I invite all of you to roll as much as you are comfortable with in Invisible Castle. At times I'll ask for you to provide various rolls such as perception, intuition, arcane, religion, checks at your request, and the like. I ask that you post at least 1/day during the week as I will try to keep that schedule as well. If you anticipate absences longer than a couple of days let me know in advance and I'll NPC you as you specify.
In combat, that will continue, though if someone is slow in posting I will NPC them for that round. I will ask that you provide combat stats in an out of character comment (in sblocks or not) including hit points and defenses, as well as any ongoing effects. When preforming an action (such as attacking) please post your attack stat.
All of this is to make combat as smooth as possible for all of us while giving me the power to control the flow of things if necessary.

"Perhaps we could retire to my study where I'll be more able to elucidate the conundrum which I face. An associate of mine, a shifter like yourself Rurdev, was found murdered this morning. I need some help to look after his affairs, particularly in regards to objects that were missing following the murder. I suspect that the objects were the target and his murder was simply convenient for the would-be thief." offers Astrepius to the assembled crew.
Provided everyone has finished imbibing the last of Rurdev's round of drinks, the elderly sage bent from time, leads the group slowly out of the Hanged Man towards the academic district of Daunton. The sun has begun to set behind the western hills of the island and twilight is setting in. Lamp-lighters are making their rounds in the academic quarter, lighting the oil lamps every couple of blocks.

Riardon follows the sage, paying attention for the others who heed the call. In his mind he forms first tactics how to utlize this resources best.

The small gnome follows the group, taking small jumps occasionally.
Each jump he does, reveals something under his hat, that, due to the momentum, remains in the air for brief seconds. There is something shiny and yellow under his big green hat.

"A s-s-shifter! From what village?" Rurdev exclaims. His thoughts wonder if he came from his village. Did he know me? Will solving this mystery lead me to honor among my people once more? Honor enough to return to my village? The warrior follows along, his loping stride hard to match by those following.

As the group follows the old man slowly up the street he continues in the same clouded voice, "His name was Rosvodiz. I'm not sure what village he was from. He didn't say." His sentences are short and wheezing as he continues shuffling along. "It's not much further." he says. And indeed his statement proves true despite anyone's doubt that it would take forever at the pace the old sage set.
The group approaches a simple two story wooden building sandwiched between two very similar buildings. Little identifies the place as either scholarly or a place of business. Astrepius opens the door and leads the four of you into a small ground floor room. There is a couple of small candles in a sitting room on the ground floor and a set of stairs leading up to the second. The air is heavy with both strange incenses and smoke (the source of the old man's coughing appears to be more than just age). In the sitting room are a few large comfortable chairs and several books piled in very neat piles around the room. The candles rest on a short table in between the chairs.
The old sage coughs again as the group enters, "Please come in and sit. I need to fix myself a tea to take care of this. I'll only be a few moments."

Rurdev comes in, and sits in a chair furthest from the incense. His keen senses felt muted by the smoke and incense. His mind is racing. What was this shifter hiding? Will it help or hinder my chances to return home if I figure out what is going on? Why did he leave?...

Unaffected by smoke or incense, Incarnation chooses not to sit. Instead, he walks around the room, casually picking up books. He examines one, flips a few pages, puts it down, then moves on to the next as if categorizing them.OOC

Riardon just sits down and waits for the sage. Conserve energy every time you can.
