Our pre-ordered magical goods not delivered. Supposedly they will be “forwarded on”.
Telford wisely decides that’s BS and, rather than shipping out with the main fleet, stays in Korvosa in order to pay a visit to our delinquent Artificer.
While on the way to the shop, an “EMP” passes through the city, shorting out the dailies of all items and bringing the Magister and Oracle to their knees. It seems to have come from southwest of the party’s present position.
Leukosians start spilling from the Artificer’s store and slaughtering civilians. This cannot stand.
After clearing out the street of baddies, the party enters the shop to find a local traitor who is guiding Leukosians entering from a portal in a back room. The traitor is subdued, and the portal disabled, but subsequent questioning reveals this portal to be but one of many. Korvosa has been betrayed, its beacon stone disabled, and Leukosians are pouring into the city in order to seize it, cutting off Korvosa and leaving large portions of the Gaercimian offensive without resupply.
