The party tracks down two of the three traitors that sold out to the Beggar King. Thly, the snake blooded assassin, and Tortha the vile necromancer both were swayed to the Beggar King’s side by promises of great power.
The party learned that Thly failed to kill the Overlord in service of the Beggar King. In his desperate need of money to be able to escape the city and the Beggar King’s wrath, the party was able to lure Thyl into the sewers with the promise of great wealth for him to assassinate the other two traitors. While he was preparing to float the chest of false coin through the sewers they ambushed him, captured him, and sacrificed him to Cthulhu.
Next, the party went to face Tortha in the City of the Dead. They found her in the middle of a ritual to summon skeletal warriors. Zus, Cruz, and Lug fell while Asmodias made a terrible sacrifice to be able to put Tortha into a magical sleep.
They earned Cthulhu’s favor by sacrificing the powerful necromancer in his name.
Spent, and wounded they decided to recoup for a time in Thyl’s hideaway cave.
