Funeral for a Friend
Zigelen, 27-28, Esevelen, 1 | (6-9 June)
The party arrived in Türos Luln and sought out the services of a Dead House, a temple dedicated to the goddess Calefa and ran by the Sisterhood of Mourning. The party made arrangements to give Atticus his last rites with the Sisters. During the meeting with the Gray Sisters, the elven twins managed to upset the Grey Sisters, who sequestered them for a private chat.
While the brothers were being questioned by the Sisters, the rest of the party went out on the town to celebrate the life of the friend they had lost. It was during the drunken revelry that Vilhelmus lost his cousin, Ivanova, who was taken by a slaver. A spirited pursuit took place in the middle of town and the slaver managed to escape.
Vilhelmus and Lozen, searched in vain but could not find Ivanova anywhere. Ivanova who had been rendered unconscious had been taken on board a trading ship,_ Sinbad’s Revenge_, moored at the docks. The captain and his crew had been busy; they had a ship full of young women that they intended to sell to the harems of Zanzibar.
Ivanova, who had been unconscious for a while awoke to find herself at sea. She was in the captain’s cabin stripped naked and tied to a bed. She quickly realized her predicament and she was not having any of this. She managed to untie herself and secured herself clothing and a weapon from the captain’s sea chest. There was a guard standing sentry outside the cabin, who Ivanova expertly dispatched.
When the captain came to sample his newest acquisition, she promptly gutted him and cut off his head. She then marched out onto the deck with captain’s head in hand and in her full divine glory cowed the entire crew of the ship. In a day she was back at the docks of Tǘros Luln. She then freed the girls being held hostage and the crew scurried off to the darkest corners of the docks.
Ivanova then reunited with her cousin who she then presented the ship too. At this time the twins rejoined the party. Together they renamed the ship the Winged Lion. The rest of the week involved making preparation to kill Agrippa and last rites for Atticus.
