Eleint 14, 1358 DR
Encounter 1: Shadowhawk Assassins
- A wizards scroll case, inks and papers
- 400 gp taken from the bodies of dead Zhents and Shadowhawks
Ian watches the abandoned temple and sees the telltale signs of a struggle from the window of one of the upper floors. He swings across the street and stealthily dives through one of the windows.
He finds a Zhent soldier bleeding out on the floor. Exploring the rooms upstairs he finds several more corpses, all Zhents, all with their throats slit. From down the hall he hears the sound of muffled footsteps. A figure in black moves with supernatural quickness to attack.
As Ian fights the assassin in the upper floors, Dorn, Kaldur and Anocumo burst through the front door. Ahbinav, on horse back, bursts through the wall. They find many dead Zhents on the main floor. Assassins emerge from every door and rush to attack.
You fight them, killing several, beating them back and they cast darkness to escape. All but one, which is held by Dorn. Anocumo puts him to the question. These were Shadowhawk assassins led by Salazzar himself. They were tasked to kill all the Zhents.
Lastly, he gives up the location of the Shadowhawk hideout in a cemetery on the southern end of town. They entrance is an unmarked mausoleum next to the largest oak tree.
As you prepare to set out you hear the clanking of a heavy chain from the dome of the cathedral. Semmemon has been killed, hung by a chain from the dome of the temple.
