Girisha “Gir” Chanth appears at the Dragon Perch Inn, he speaks perfect N. Ergothian with a N. Ergothian accent. He gives Ridir a gift from Malchidiel. This is a badge which when Ridir puts it on shows that Ridir is the member of <<insert>>. This changes depending on who looks at it. Ridir sees that it is the badge marking him as a member of the Captain of the Guard of Balifor, but [[:tristan-de-warforge | Tristan}} sees that Ridir is a member of the Nordmaar’s elite guard. Gir, pronounced “Gere”, explains that Majere has sent him here to act as a guide to assist the quest.
The following morning, Gir leads them flawlessly and without hesitation into the poor district. Here Ridir interviews an old man who takes them to the murdered bodies.
There were 3 bodies, one a Silvanesti Elf named Finglotin Telrunya who is the diplomat to Ran-Khal; the second the diplomat from Balifor, Exnar Peginshy; and the third Tristan recognized as being from Nordmaar, there were no documents on the Nordmaar they assumed he also was a diplomat. The Elf and Nordmaarian had their throat slit and the Baliforian was stabbed in the heart.
Gir led us to the Palace, where we talked with the man who schedules the meetings with the Sirda, Gena Atol. He was not very helpful.
Gir then led us to the Embassy of Silvanost. Here [[:findec-no-telr-nya | Findecano Telrunya]], the Diplomat’s brother was able to answer all sorts of questions. Finglotin had not been seen for 2 weeks. Visited with the Sirda on the last day seen. Was last known to be visiting other diplomats. Ridir found a note written in blood, warning the diplomat to leave as his kind were not welcome in Ran-Khal.
Findecano wanted to be led to the body of his brother, Gir agreed to lead him to the poor district. We would meet up at the Baliforian embassy afterwards.
On the way to the Baliforian embassy, Ridir stopped at the Embassy between the Silvanost and Baliforian embassies. This was the Kharolisian embassy. Ridir was greated cordially and in a thickly accented common was able to meet with the diplomat, who hadn’t had any bloody notes, and no oddities. Ridir was well received, and well fed.
At the Baliforian embassy, the staff was a little shocked that someone from the Captain of the watch could have arrived so quickly. They were shocked when Ridir informed them that Exnar Peginshy was dead, and the Deputy Diplomat Ibopsin Ziminski was very helpful. He was last seen 4 days ago, having attended a party hosted by another diplomat. After condolences were given, they were able to find a bloody note like the one given to the elves.
Gir’s cousin, Nan was waiting for Ridir outside of the Baliforian embassy, she is much like Gir with similar traits, and also following Majere.
The next embassy was the embassy to the orcs, and although tempted to check on them Ridir passed them by.
The Nordmaarian emabassy was across the street from the orc’s. Ridir was admitted easily due to his credentials, and they were stunned to hear that the diplomat was dead. He was last seen 2 days ago. The Diplomat was close to the Sirda and did not require appointments to visit him, but was last known visiting other diplomats. A bloody note was discovered among his correspondence. The Deputy Diplomat’s name is Mateo Soberano
Nan guided everyone including Mateo to the bodies. Once reunited with Gir Ridir bid farewell to the grieving diplomats and rushed back to the embassy row.
Sensing a pattern, Ridir visited the second embassy following Nordmaar. This was the N. Ergothian embassy. Here, hoping to catch the Diplomat before he was killed Ridir took the direct approach asking if the Diplomat [[:Jim Beyond]] had received a bloody note. The staff looked and after searching the embassy for the diplomat frantically, informed Ridir that Jim had gone for a walk to “think things over”.
Getting directions to where this walk took place usually, Ridir and Gir ran after the diplomat. Finding him fighting for his life from an ugly male humanoid creature wielding a long blade that looked like a shaver!
