We got Melchizedek back. As it turns out, he’d been kidnapped by one Melech Amborse, a merchant who is a member of the Aurum. Lady ir’Ryliss’ anger is catching up to us, it seems. Melchizedek seems pretty beat up, but the others got him out of Ambrose’s wherehouse easily enough. That gnome even helped. Maybe he’ll stick around.

Well, we’re in Sharn, and Melchizedek is missing. He picked up Torra on his way here, and she claims that he vanished after she and he delivered Paldrith, Captain Alistair’s brother; she came back to the ship, while he left to go post a few letters. I don’t fully trust her. Not two hours after we met up on the ship, she stole my translation of the Abyssal book. She claimed she wanted to see what kind of progress I’d made.
Now we’re waiting here on the ship for someone form the Boromar Clan to bring us some information of a group that apparently attacked the others while they were out looking for Melchizedek. Everyone believes that the attackers are related to his disappearance, and Rogan, the gnome who’s been guiding us through the city, is convinced they were from House Tarkanen. Nothing to do now but wait for our contact. It’s no good looking for information on our own; with the king having died this morning, that’s all anyone will talk about.
