"Ah yes, the eternal search of knowledge..." Dalzim makes a disregarding gesture "Shall we move on with the details of our job?" the gnome inquires. "I am truly bored right now" he admits.

"Excellent. Welcome then Amicus, I hope that all of you may help me in an investigation of an odd nature to say the least. I apologize for taking so long, I am no longer the spry young man of ages past. Getting to the point then, pass me that book Incarnation, if you will." the old sage says, pointing to a book to Incarnation's left. The book is a small red covered book with black binding. The cover is unadorned though the pages look well used. The cover sizzles as the warforged picks it up, his fingers smoking from touching the notebook.
"I've got to be careful with you about don't I." he says, taking the book. He flips to a page in the middle of the book and reviews a few notes that he had made. "As I had eluded too earlier and to bring our young eldarin friend up to speed, I need help investigating a death. A shifter named Rosvodiz was found dead this morning in his residence. Rosvodiz is an older shifter who has lived here in Daunton for several years. He belonged to an adventuring group called the Caput Mortuum, a bit nihilistic for my tastes, but none the less. Rosvodiz was the last member of the ill-fated group and was not really sane any more these days."
Astrepius pauses a moment to sip his tea. His voice is much more steady here in his own sanctuary, his throat cleared by the heavy scents and strong teas. "I had been speaking these past few months with Rosvodiz regarding the last adventure that Caput Mortuum had been on. As an occultist, I am keenly interested in the hidden knowledge that seems to drive you all as well. I seek the truth in the obvious, looking beyond appearances to find true meaning. The search for that knowledge does take me to study realms that others would rather keep silent such as cults, daemonic worship, numerology, and other esotericism."
"Caput Mortuum's final encounter found them rooting out a daemonic cult beneath Daunton. Rosvodiz tried to tell me about what he saw and what befell Caput Mortuum, but his mind had been shattered. From the snippets I transcribed, the words that he remembered were very similar to an ancient form of the Imperial speech. I had hoped that either of you might offer me some insight and that together you would help me find out what happened to poor Rosvodiz. I had been nearing a breakthrough with him and his death on the cusp of discovery is no coincidence. Someone put a stop to our conversations in a rather violent manner." he finishes, pausing to see how everyone will react and taking a moment to sip his still steaming tea.

The warforged listened with its fingers touching; it was apparently its "rest" state. Hearing of the 'Caput Mortuum', the warforged's seemed to be lost in thought a moment.
[OOC: Kn: Arcana 19 and Kn: History 15 on that name, just in case he's heard anything]
When the sage stops, the 'forged's raspy voice can just be heard. The dead are not beyond reach; those with the correct rites can speak to the passed. Have you tried such?

Rurdev nods, the 'forged was right. Surely their frail employer would have tried such a thing. "How l-l-long ago did they g-go after the c-c-c-cult? Where are and w-what happened to the other m-m-mmembers of the g-group?" Rurdev stutters out, pausing several times to lick the bits of foam from the corners of his mouth.

Amicus smiles at the sages invitation and seems to relax a bit on his stool. He takes the time too look around the group.
As the old man continues he purses his lips, he knew something of religion and had and eldarin's familiarity with history but he could not provide any more than the most prosaic information [10 & 12].
He leaded back to see what the others could share.
I have not attempted to contact Rosvodiz' spirit yet, though we can certainly conduct our investigation in that direction. I should have a scroll of Speak with the Dead around here somewhere." the old sage replies, as he looks down at the stacks around his chair. "Perhaps a search is in order in a few minutes."Originally Posted by Incarnation
It would've been about 12 years ago that the Caput Mortuum routed out the cultists and prevented what ever twisted ritual was being preformed. The other two members of the group were killed by the cultists while trying to put down the cult." he replies.Originally Posted by Rurdev
