Flint and Althaea are treated for their wounds in The Lady’s House, where Chinny also waits. Lydia goes with Kurshk to check local taverns for Wellby and Arjhan, while Jasnah heads to the Council, accompanied by Cid, Sparklegem and Yevelda. Jasnah enters the council chambers alone; Yevelda waits for her, while Cid and Sparklegem return to the others.
Flint is treated by the cleric and recovers quickly from his wound. Althaea’s wound is far more grevious and the cleric says she will have to stay for an extended period. Flint states he is going to the Helm and Cloak, and the cleric tells him he will send word when Althaea is healed.
Kurshk, Cid, and Lydia go tavern hopping while Flint and Chinny head to the Helm and Cloak where they find Wellby in a drunken stupor. Arjhan is there as well. He reports he has been trying to get the Baldur’s Gate Council to act against the cult.
Our presence has not gone unnoticed, and a few patrons, quickly revealed to be cultusts, abruptly stand up from their meals and advance directly toward us, reaching into their clothing for weapons. Battle ensues and we manage to slay them, leaving one alive. He confesses that General Lamentation told them to keep us busy. Lydia slays him and we quickly head to the council chamber knowing Jasnah is in immediate danger. Yevelda is nowhere to be seen.
Standing outside the council chambers, Flint detects undead somewhere below us. We attempt to enter the council chamber but the guards have been instructed to keep everyone out. They tell us that an orc went into a nearby sewer grate.
Lydia makes herself invisible and pushes her way into the council chamber. She runs into a magical barrier and becomes visible. The guards throw her out.
We decide to follow Yevelda into the sewer. In a few steps we see the image of General Lamentation and some undead in conversation. Lamentation sees us. He instructs his followers to delay us and disappears. We engage them in battle and slay them. Yevelda thanks us for our help and tells us that we need to hurry as the council members are in danger. She saw some creatures go thru a grate to go up to the chamber, and points out the grate to us. Looking up, we see a room above the grate. Flint opens the grate with a huge clang and sees the corpses of a lot of dead guards. There is a small room ,15 guards dead of stab wounds, and stairs leading up.
We find ourselves in the council chamber with Jasnah and other council members. Flint warns them all that Lamentation is planning an attack. Jasnah vouches for our trustworthiness.
As we are attempting to explain to the council the danger they are in, an assassin drops down from behind a pillar right above Thazar-De and cuts his throat.
