The PCs managed to get into the city with the merchant caravan. The Merchant Xandu appeared to pay their way. The group split up and intended on meeting up later. The asked a guard where the nearest tavern/inn was and found out that there was a place not far from them called the "battered Inn". As they walked towards the inn they noticed a large moving pictures sign about 20 feet by 10 feet. It was pixelated by kept flashing the following information on it.
IT IS BETTER TO DIE THEN TO LIVE AS A CRIMINAL
ALL TECH NEEDS TO BE TURNED INTO THE THE AUTHORITY'S, ILLEGA TECH WILL BE CONFISCATED, AND THE OWNER WILL BE CONDEMNED.
STIPEND AND FOOD DELIVERED WEEKLY. NO EXCEPTIONS
NO SHIRT NO SHOES NO SERVICE
They found the battered inn, paid for a room and a promise of a second bed. They met up with a raccoon named Gregor who told them about how he had been scouting the sewers but was too afraid to go very far. He wants a map of the interior if possible.
Later they went to the docks and saw the merchant unloading his goods to the security guards at the large warehouse. It was all tech that had been acquired. They spoke briefly with grum and decided to meet up at the Aluminium kettle afterwards.
The kettle is a hoping joint! Lots of mutants are inside drinking and gambling. They sat down for some canned juice and a glass of GALOU (which is a homemade alcohol popular in Nocturne). There they met a large talking bear, who claimed that Xandu the merchant owed them money.
The bear is an adventurer who was recently beset by large mutated spiders to the north along the river. He was checking out some ruins there.
Grum & xandu showed up, and Xandu turned into his child like state. Eventually grum paid off the bear.
The crew met in the back room to discuss what was going on. The merchant intends to leave town and go north along the river in the next 5 days.
The PCs decided to check out the sewers and see what they could find while waiting for the merchant to leave. There was some discussion about possibly raiding the tech warehouse and maybe weakening the city. They may get grum involved if possible.
The PCs went and checked out the sewers, decided on the first of 2 entrances (the more western entrance). They found a pool filled with feces, and androids cleaning it. The only exit was covered in a large pulsating black moss with weird twigs that would reach around the pipes. After burning it they managed to jump thru the door into a hallway. At the end of the hall they found a room filled with old junk, the floor was only about 5 feet, and then suddenly dropped off into nothingness.
In the junk they found a large brass 4 handed sword (8 feet long in total) and a stained glass window worth $$$ that had a christmas scene on it.
They dragged the window down the hallway and were going to check out the western passage possibly.
