Heroes of Terra
City of Peril
Within the city of Rhoan, there are several groups and individuals who vie for power. Some are overt, some are more insidious and some may seek to good while others are bent towards evil. In an early encounter with the criminal element of the city, Luke managed to become embroiled in a political power struggle taking place on several levels. He purchased a stolen psionic item which he later turned over to the Enclave but they are not satisfied with this penance. They charge Luke with gathering up all of his coins that he spent on the item so that the money cannot be used for evil purposes. After several encounters with assassins and other creatures working for the guild they uncover a plot to poison the city’s water supply using poisoned water elementals. They make a good underworld contact in the form of Tibba Knightling and they capture Kernst Felroc, the lieutenant guildmaster. Felroc tells them that the guildmaster is Threethumbs and that the whole plan was his idea. He agrees to tell the group where he is, in exchange for his freedom. The group makes the deal, let Felroc go and thanks to his information, capture Threethumbs. Threethumbs tells the group that Felroc is a vile assassin and that it was him who arranged the whole deal with the water elementals. He has no idea how we has even able to pull it off. Threethumbs is later executed for his crimes. The group also returns to the thieves’ quarter to end an internal conflict of another evil assassin attempting to take control of the guild. They find her and take her out as well.
