Caltaran asks " well we could get axen conscious to see if he as any other orders. We can bring these prisoners to the watch for justice and then close this case. Another idea since florence said there were areas the thieves never ventured we could check it out and it might lead us to the dracolisk. Any thoughts?

"Dracolisk? Ummm, I commend your bravery, Caltaran," Ramon said. "But I think we are hardly equipped to take on that monstrosity. My counsel is we withdraw. We have ended the opium ring as Axen intended."

Caltaran says " while the dracolisk must pay for its crime against the town of Verbobonc, I agree rest is in order. Your counsel is wise Ramon and I do agree with it. I also agree that Dieg Manor must be dealt with and I believe we have the group to defeat them. Let's get these prisoners to prison and then a hot meal and a good drink is in order. "

Day 18, the rest of turn 18 for Caltaran, Semeragin, Ramon, Marcel, Joaquim (Axen, Koldo, Fortunato, Daphne, Gautier, and Laetitia):
"So it's prison after all?" Florence said, looking surprised. "You betray your word like a thief."
"I am sure Father Nesmith meant if you fail to pass the test for conversion."
The party picked up and headed back through the cold room with the trapped chest. The pit trap in the hallway looked like it would be dangerous to cross again, but Florence and his two flunkies remained useful. They opened a secret door and produced a folding ladder they could lay across the pit. They returned through the "wall" to the tavern cellar, where Koldo and Gautier were waiting for them. They were quickly filled in on what they'd missed.
"We decided to stay behind and guard the cellar," Koldo said, "since the watch left here some time ago."
"What about this new treasure you found?" Gautier asked.
"I don't think it would be right for us to claim a share of that," Koldo said. "We did elect to stay behind here, and didn't face the dangers they did."
"It's still early," Fortunato chimed in. "We could get the loot appraised and distribute it still today."
"We need to decide who is escorting the prisoners to the temple," Daphne said, "who is getting the treasure appraised, and where to meet afterwards for the hot meal and a good drink that Caltaran wisely proposed."

Day 18, turn 19 for Caltaran, Semeragin, Ramon, Marcel, Joaquim (Axen, Koldo, Fortunato, Daphne, Gautier, and Laetitia):
The party was torn on what to do next. Ramon had promised to turn the prisoners over to the First Army of the Church. Caltaran and Semeragin, though, were determined to turn them over to the Viscount's Standing Army. And Axen offered a third alternative.
"Why not just dispense justice here and now? We've coddled too many criminals and answered to too many figures of authority. When will we stand up for ourselves and what we think is right?"
Though Marcel and Joaquim abstained, others weighed in.
"Maybe Axen is right," Koldo said. "If this place is somewhere other than in Verbobonc, as Florence claims, then why are we turning them over to Verbobonc authorities? Best to handle this ourselves."
"Tempting," Fortunato said. "But the crimes they committed were in Verbobonc before fleeing here. I agree we take them back and hand them over to the Viscount's men."
"No, I have to agree with Koldo and Axen," Daphne said. "Florence is a smooth talker, but that doesn't mean we should give him any more consideration than we would a goblin, if they take up arms against the city we cherish. I would be willing to serve as their executioner right now."
Gautier and Laetitia felt the same. They all seemed surprisingly thirsty for blood ((or so dice rolls dictated...)).

Day 18, turn 19a for Caltaran, Semeragin, Ramon, Marcel, Joaquim (Axen, Koldo, Fortunato, Daphne, Gautier, and Laetitia):
"Never opened it," Florence had said in the trapped chest room. "We figured out the cold in the room was coming from the chest and left it alone."
But, right now, the debate about the prisoners continued.
"I'm sorry, everyone," Axen said. "I realize now, my judgment was colored by my experience with Guarin, a prisoner I thought could be rehabilitated, but seems to have taken advantage of my good nature and ran off. Of course, we should honor Ramon's promise."
"No, I'm sorry, Ramon," Koldo said, "but we need to put our foot down. We can send a message here to the cultists that we put our foot down and won't be lenient."
"I'm with this man," Fortunato said.
"I would be...if not for Ramon's promise," Daphne said. "No, I won't make Ramon take back his word."
Gautier and Laetitia also flip-flopped. Ramon now carried the majority with him. The prisoners would go to Church's Army.
Caltaran also would have agreed to Ramon's promise and semer did not hear the promise. Caltaran says " well let's get these prisoners to the church and Marcel and whoever else is going to sell the loot we will meet you later at the bronze unicorn for a meal and drink?"

Day 18, turn 20 for Marcel, Joaquim, (Koldo, Fortunato, Gautier, Laetitia):
They also had items from the first haul in the thieves guild to sell off at Jake's.
The three suits of leather armor fetched 10 gp. The nice scimitar had a silver pommel and was worth 31 gp, 4 sp. The morningstar was of good quality and worth 7 gp, 16 sp. The two short swords were worn and worth only 4 gp, 1 sp between them. The daggers were choice, though, and fetched 18 gp, 5 sp for all six of them.
So their actual total so far was 326 gold, 1 electrum.
