After making sure, that no further cave-ins are likely to happen, Kaven asks the remains of the RCS clergy to look to the wounded, even as he puts aside his sword, and starts shifting rocks to get to whats underneath.

Seeing the IHH Archbishop start searching, he pauses from his work, wiping the sweat from his forehead with the back of a hand.


"Your Eminence, should you locate anything indicating as to the identity of the slain, I would ask that you allow us to look it through. Many Ruornites may have found their deaths at the hands of this shadowspawn. Perhaps I might bring peace to their families at last..."
With that, he continues lifting the rubble aside slowly.

After many hours you are finally able to reach them; Tristan is alive, but unconscious, his own family blade lodged in his shoulderbone. The Iron Rider is, however, quite dead. No sign of any wraith, but then again the Pontiff already ploclaimed that.

In unison, the men carefully lift out the two limp forms. A space is quickly cleared, to allow the prone form of both the Iron Rider and Tristan to lie, so their wounds may be checked.

After confering with the men, who continue to shift the stones, and stabilize the room, in an effort to locate all the dead, Kaven kneels next to unconcious shape of the Baron, while a RCS priest offers a few words over the dead Iron Rider. He touches the sword embedded in Tristans shoulder tentatively. He looks towards Wallac.

"Your Holiness, if I dislodge the blade, might I ask that you see to his wounds?

"But ofcause. On my count dislodge the blade slowly. It will be painfull but we dont want to cut anymore veins. I will see to stop the bleeding when the blade is out."

Baron Kaven slowly dislodge the blade and Wallac invoke Haelyn for healing. Passing out shortly Tristan comes to his senses after a few minuttes.

"The IR seems quite dead. I say we take steps to bring him home to his sister."

Gathering the deads and the wounded then search for whatever the Wraiths had stolen from their victims the party move out of the sewers. The belongings to the victims is put in the vault and its announced in the city that the heirs to victims of the wraiths can claim the items but have to describe what, from whom and when the persons went missing. The clergery sees to ensure only rightfull claims gets accepted. All items is held for at least a week before released as to ensure imposters dont illegally claim them.

After having seen to the dead and the wounded the regents of the party ask the Countess of Ilien for an audience to formally announce the threat of the Wraiths have finaly been dealt with.

The Countess holds audience in the magnificent caste of Ilien.

"On behalf of Ilien I want to thank you all for your great effort in keeping the city safe.
I must however stress that I am deeply disapointed you would allow people to follow you down the sewers without informing me."

She looks at Pontiff Wallac Isilviere.

"Your Holiness,
Before you went down there we agreed that you took responsibility for what happened in the sewers. I would like it if you arrange for Vanadaeres' relatives to be informed and sees to it that he is treated as they wish."

She looks at the whole party group again

"There will be a banquet in your honor tonight. I hope you will come and celebrate your success."

Her Excellency Geraldine el-Mesir,
Countess of the Free City of Illien
Guildmistress of Port of Call Exchange,
Mage of Ilien & Protector of her people.

"Your Excellency I hardly had any choice in the matter. We meet the Iron Rider deep in the sewers. Faced with the shadow I decided against policing the sewers and allowed the IR to fight alongside us.

I was not aware that IR needed a permission to come to Ilien. He certainly dont know being dead.

I know not of your relationship with the IR but now he is dead and he did die serving the city of Ilien.

I thank you for the invitation and accept it"

If I have overstayed my mission vs the Wraiths I beg forgiveness.

"Your Holiness, Your Excellency, the Iron Rider is a citizen, a vassal, and a hero of Osoerde.  We shall see that he is returned there with us this one last time."  Bellamie is pale and tense, his eyes dark with circles and lingering pain - and grief.  "Although he renounced his position as my vassal years ago, he remained a friend and ally, and his sister remains Countess of Algael in his place.  I owe them both debts for this day and days past.  This sad duty, I believe, is mine, and I will not shirk it." 

He bows his head briefly, in a shallow nod of respect, not subordination, to the countess. "Your Excellency, I do not regret coming to aid Pontiff Isilviere or your people of Ilien, nor would Vimorean - despite the price he paid.  Against the Shadow, all men, all nations, are one.  But Osoerde has lost grievously this day, and I must carry word home as quickly as I may.  I beg your forgiveness for the unseemly haste of my departure, but I must depart on the morrow, as soon as the tides permit."

IR will be placed in our Grand Cathedral and escorted back by an honor guard. Wallac would like to see what can be done for him. Can raise dead be used in RoE?

Perhaps deal with this in mail with Bjørn

Raise dead can be used; though only within 1 day/level of the deceased. Its primary use is bring back someone who just died in battle. After a few hours it is generally frowned upon - why would you wish to return to the living a hero called to sit beside Haelyn? And would the soul of the deceased want to come back? Most likely not.

The most famous return-from-the dead incident is Archduke William; Armiendin resurrected him quite a while after his death. First time that has happened in living memory.

Kaven rests his chin on his hand, as he listens intently to Tristan's words, his eyes unblinking as he stares at the man. Then he sighs and breaks into a meek smile.
"I shall not forget your aid to those following Ruornil. Indeed, you did all of Anuire a great service, in aiding to maintain the Celestial Spell here in Ilien. I shall make certain to mention you, indeed all of you, in my prayers tonight.

If you need anything that is in my power to give, provisions for your or your men, or a bed for the night, do not hesitate to say so. If Her Excellency Algael wishes to visit the place of her brothers heroic last stand, please inform her, that we would welcome her as a personal guest to the RCS."

[OOC: I had not said so but Tristan and his men can ofcause restock and rest as they wish in IHH grand cathedral being stout followers of Haelyn]

Baron Bellamie, please I would like if you where to accompany me to the Cathedral honoring Vimorean as part of the excort for him. Provisions for the journey is your to have as you wish. I've instructed the quatermaster should you have any wishes. I believe Archduke Osoer would like his trusted vasal to bring him back to Osoerde.

During the banquet in our honor Wallac Isilviere brings up the subject of the prisoners taken last season.

"Your Excellency the Conclave of Temples ask you for permission to interogate the prisoners taken by my party last season. With the late gnoll invasion in Mieres the Conclave has to investigate if there can be made any connections betweeen the Gnolls and the Red Wind. In the past the Red Wind has used the Gnoll; it can be so again.

Do CoT have your permission?"

Geraldine replies: "Certainly, Your Holiness. I am sure that you would agree that Baron Enlien of the Conclave or one of his men should be the obvious choice for the task given his ties to Ilien."
She pauses shortly before continuing:"But given the Iron Riders untimely death and all the arrangements that needs to be made and the Sword and Crown drawing closer it would be best if we waited untill we return from the Imperial City."
The Countess looks at the Baron.
