The Cult of Zehir used to be just another snake cult. Now they are part of the up and coming guild of assassins making use of renegade shadar kai. I of course have nothing good to say of shadar kai, but these renegades are worse than the run of the mill shadar kai for they have betrayed the Raven Queen for Zehir.
We left Lord Toldara and went to the shop in the Devils Thumb where we had reason to believe they might be. Crixus and Goodman went into the shop to see if the proprietor was there. He was not and after bullying the shopkeeper, Crixus pushed past him to go downstairs, though not before alerting Mako and I. He went into the cellar and there were found many shadar kai led by a witch, who proceeded to attack. I followed them, while Mako and Goodman delayed, though they eventually moved in with Goodman’s menagerie in tow. Seeing the additional reinforcements, the shadar kai chose to retreat.
The fight spread to the sewers when Crixus tore the sewer grate out of the floor and followed them down, pressing the attack as his Northern rage froze his heart and the hearts of his enemies.
A lone shadar kai occupied the ladder. First Mako jumped down onto him, but he managed to deflect Mako into the sewer. Mako ended up on his back with his legs and arms in the air like a turtle, while the shadar kai stayed on the ladder. I decided that the ladder needed to be cleared and leapt onto the shadar kai still occupying it, knocking him to his death. Goodman, of course, elegantly teleported past.
Meanwhile, Crixus ran into the sewer’s janitorial staff when he was enveloped by a gelatinous cube, as the remaining shadar kai ran for it.
