  • Na'ami of Eidlum

Welcome to Iresari

It has been two weeks since your arrival to Iresari, The Infernal City. Streets here in the lower circles are narrow and tightly packed, especially during the evening rush. Restaurants and bars with only a few seats, stalls handing out quick snacks and drinks, vendors for home goods, clothing, and even books line the street. It’s foreign and fast-paced but is a nice change from the empty forests and backwater towns that you’ve become familiar with. Plus, it’s easy to blend in here. The smells of fried sweet doughs and grilled meats fill the air, and there’s a buzz in the air as everyone winds down from their days, though a few of you do notice that things feel off, if only a bit. You’re headed to the Fire and Ice Alehouse to meet with Olunda for the first time since you arrived, and Voxis said she’d make an appearance later to give you guys some information on a job to earn some much-needed cash.

Finally, the party has wrapped up all that they needed in the city of Iresari. They head off to Emyran Thalor, The Garden City, to find their friends Ryn and Na'ami after an ominous warning was given to them by The Shade of Memories, Lord Aschere the Drage of the House of Virtues. Unfortunately, as the party will soon see, nothing will ever go quite as smoothly as they would hope. What stands in the way between them and their friends? Only time will tell...

12 September: What the fuck is UP with that guy.

Y'know. That ball that Mr. Aschere the Drage dropped on you was one that... most of you didn't expect. On one hand, you now know that you're being watched. On the other... You have a bad feeling about this. For now, though, you have some things to wrap up in Iresari.
