It seems that the activity inside the Cathedral has picked up as of late. Drusus has been seen coming and going and word inside the Cathedral is that he and Shiloh have been refreshing divine spells throughout the Cathedral.

The group trooped through Khem and into the Kelemvor Cathedral. Of most interest was Holy Brother Drusus Vel, Brother Calahan and the pale master Hojo.

Holy Brother Drusus Vel paused at the entrance to speak to the Gray Watch Squires posted in the main worship room. "Gentlemen! This is Hojo as you well know. We are going downstairs. Please give every courtesy to our guests." And Drusus indicated Lord Marcus Valis, Knight Captain Nimiwae and Lord Tuomas Valo.

Hojo was escorted into the anti-magic cell. Recently redone, the room is more comfortable than a jail cell despite the steel reinforced door with bars. After Hojo was searched and items taken by Knight Captain Nimiwae for safe keeping Drusus provided Hojo with shirt and trousers.

Within minutes Lord Hector was at the Cathedral along with a mob of people. From those having legitimate purpose, to the curious, to those with ill intent. The hall was flooded with bodies much to Drusus's chagrin.

He immediately called for Gary Watch Squire Guards and requested that they escort everyone except Lord Hector and Knight Captain Nimiwae out of the basement. Those that decided to linger that Drusus didn't know personally Drusus called for Gray Watch Squire Guards and requested them to escort those loitering completely out of the Cathedral entirely. These unknown individuals were asked to provide a letter of introduction addressed to the Holy Brother of the Cathedral. Since there was no way to know who had ill intent Drusus was better safe than sorry. And everyone who trooped down to the basement was suspect since only those escorted by the Gray Watch should have been allowed there.

The Kohlingen Defenders were singled out by Drusus and allowed to stay in the hallway.

Holy Brother Drusus’ requested that the Gray Watch Squire Guards only allow the following people downstairs:

Lord Marcus Valis
High Priestess Tee
Mr. Andrew Fryar
Knight Captain Nimiwae
Lord Hector

Detailed descriptions of these people is given as well as the allowance of Kohlingen Defender guards for their protection.

Drusus also requested that two guards be posted outside of the room that Hojo occupies. Drusus requested that the cell door only be opened by any of the Gray Watch. Drusus also requested that the guards report any conversations they hear. And if the conversation is started in a language other than common that it be stopped immediately and the visitor be escorted out. Drusus also requested that the guards prevent anyone from standing close enough for Hojo to reach with his arms. And absolutely nothing be handed to Hojo by anyone other than the Gray Watch personnel.

Drusus also informed everyone in the Cathedral about a human female shadow dancer by the name of Sana Veskin. He requests that anyone catching Sana in the Cathedral escort her outside. As she had repeatedly used shadows to gain access to Hojo clearly for nefarious reasons.

Drusus also requests that anyone seeing people /not/ part of the Gray Watch and the Cathedral that seem to be able to open locked doors be asked for the magical objects allowing them to do so. If they do not give the items then Drusus requests that they be escorted out of the Cathedral and reported to Father Merryhill and Holy Brother Drusus. As it is well known that unscrupulous people have been getting the magical devices restricted to Kelemvorites and handing them out like candy.

The only exception thus far is Lord Hector.

Finally, Drusus tells the Gray Watch and those in service to Kelemvor in the Cathedral the following:

“Our duty, brothers and sisters, is to see that all have a peaceful afterlife journey, and ensure that the bodies of the dead are buried safely and according to religious tradition.

We are holding Hojo since Hojo’s repeated deaths have done nothing to free those Hojo has defiled nor altered his unnatural life. We will do whatever we can to put the undead to eternal rest. This time it will be through surgery in a joint effort with our Kohlingen allies. I believe this is the only way to accomplish what we are tasked with by our Lord Kelemvor. I intend to do this as soon as possible.

I have learned that Hojo is faithless. This provides us with an opportunity to share our Lord Kelemvors truth. That death is a part of life. It is not an ending but a beginning. Not a punishment but a necessity. Hojo needs to know that death is an orderly process without deceit, concealment and randomness.

Yet remember that pale masters are dangerous and Hojo is no exception. There will be those who will attempt to free him before we do our duty. Be Vigilant brothers and sisters. Go with peace and certainty.”



// It's late so forgive me if I didn't word the interaction with the guards as requests so that a DM can take over for them. EDIT: Updated this to reflect the change from EO to GW.

At the bottom of the Cathedral the Palemaster sits in his Anti-Magic cell. He'd be singing loudly throughout the night, though it wasn't to irritate anyone in particular. The song seems to be a song parents sing to their children when the children are scared. HoJo would caress his bald head, wobbling back and forth, and scratching at his decayed skin. Before he'd actually fall asleep, HoJo would stand up and run around the Cell and quietly sing to himself. "I'm free! I'm free! I'm free! No one can get me, because I'm free!" If any guards were passing by, or standing outside the Cell during such would be met with no aggression. If he was told to hush, he'd refuse it. Eventually, however, he'd overwork himself and fall asleep on the comfy cot.

Drusus leaves word with Father Merryhill that he'd like to speak with the Father as soon as possible.


// Not sure which DM is taking over for Sammy for all the Gray Watch activities. Please let me know who and when you're available. Thanks!

Holy Brother Drusus is seen taking bucketful after bucketful of sand downstairs. Once there he dumps out the sand and then smooths it out on the floor. Until the area from the stairs, down the hall and through the doors to the stairs leading to the trial room are completely covered in an inch of sand.

He then spends time smoothing out the sand with a wooden rake that has a smooth face. So when he's done there is nothing marring the surface. And he erases his boot prints as he leaves.

Now, should anyone unseen enter the area. They will leave footprints.

Drusus requests that the squire guards please keep watch for any footprints being made by invisible or shadowed individuals. Drusus requests that they attempt to capture anyone unseen making prints of any kind in the sand. Drusus also requests that the squire guards remove all the captured individuals items, including clothing and especially portal wands and put them into the standard outfits provided by the Gray Watch and lock them in a jail cell for trial.

Finally, Drusus requests that the guards on duty in the jail cell area use the rake to erase their boot prints as they move around. Hojo is not to be allowed out of his anti magic cell except by the Gray Watch.

Along with his regular duties, Shiloh spends even more time cooking than usual. There is always something available for their allies to eat when they arrive. Shiloh even takes a plate, without utensils, down to Hojo at least twice a day. Shiloh is careful to smooth the sand as he leaves. Despite all of the cooking, the Priest doesn't seem to have much of an appetite himself. His expression is more serious. His face a bit drawn. Perhaps it has to do with what he has been studying and what they all face in the near future.

HoJo would accept the two plates offered to him each day by Shiloh. He'd be sitting by the cell door waiting on Shiloh to make it down the hallway as he hears him come. One day, when Shiloh delivers the plate, HoJo request a quill and ink container. Shiloh would see HoJo, with his plate of food, on his cot reading the Book of Kelemvor Shiloh gave him, along with eating.

Shiloh would maintain the demeanor and bedside manner the same as if he were attending any sick, or bereaved patient. When he spoke to HoJo his tone was warm. "I can not pass you such tools, but I am sure we can find someone to sit here and take notes for you. They would, of course, be yours to take when you leave this place." By all indications, the Priest expected Hojo to eventually leave the Cathedral whole and sound.

Holy Brother Drusus is seen speaking with Lord Tuomas and the kobold Soren in the Hall of Truth's office. After the meeting started there was another arrival. The rather blunt Brother Gray Watch secretary at the entrance was heard to say, "Do not attempt to bring your deceit into the halls of truth!" to Squire Andre'us who had attempted to enter without being on the secretary's list of visitors.

Squire Andre'us was told his assistance was appreciated as an extra pair of eyes to watch the sands for the shadow dancer while Lord Tuomas was having the private, whispered conversation. However, it wasn’t long before Brother Calahan arrived and Squire Andre’us became agitated.

“You would keep a lord of Kholingen separated from his sworn protector. I will take this door off its hinges if i must.” Squire Andre’us threatened even though an Gray Watch Acolyte was standing guard and the office door was open with Tuomas inside.

“Now, Squire Andre'us, you do know that and the Acolyte here will have to get physical with you. It'll be ugly over nothing.” Drusus calm voice came in response.

“None of your acolytes even noticed the bitch.” Squire Andre’us angrily retorted.

“They will now, don't you worry, You can too, just watch the sand at your feet.”
Drusus replied.

“You are keeping me from my sworn duty.”
Squire Andre’us argued.

“Oh... well then.” Drusus took a step to look inside the office and addressed Tuomas. “My apologies, Lord Tuomas.. You'll have to wait outside else your squire will start damaging Cathedral property. I'm sorry that he thinks we'd harm you.”

Lord Tuomas was kind enough to take Squire Andre’us out of the Cathedral so that the Gray Watch Squires didn’t have to escort him thus.

When they’d left, Holy Brother Drusus requested that Squire Andre’us not be allowed in the Halls of Truth. And that Drusus would be happy to speak to any of the individuals that Squire Andre’us was guarding in the main Cathedral.

// Please note that I'm updating from EO to Gray Watch since the EO was ousted and replaced with Gray Watch some months ago. The update hasn't gone in since it wasn't an immediate priority. :D I'll update the other posts now.

And a note would find its way to Rafe by the quickest means possible.

Brother Rafe,

In Peace and Certainty,
~ Dru

HoJo seems mentally and physically exhausted as of late. He'd ask Holy Brother Drusus to sit with him, and talk about Kelemvor. To be exact, HoJo would ask about Kelemvor's dogma, Kelemvor's ideas towards redemption, Kelemvor's ideas towards the Dead and what the Deathless are.

Drusus would absolutely be willing to speak with Hojo about his favorite subject.

// I'll catch you in game!

Though all seems quiet, a dark-clad figure appears at the cathedral. He leaves word with the attendants that a small delegation from Caraigh will be attending in order to speak with active practitioners of the faith, concerning the undead menace on their island.

((Roughly 7pm GMT today, in case any long-lost Kelemvorites would like to make an appearance!))

Recently a slightly larger than average man wearing grey armor can be seen frequenting the cathedral. No emotion is seen on his face, but the tone in his voice would make those listening think he is here on a mission, and he is very serious about it.

A fair skinned woman wearing a full plate and a cloak which shows the holy symbol of Kelemvor is seen around the cathedral lately. Mostly going through some books and helping with some chores that may need to be done.

But most important she seems to be looking for some other member of the faith called Serenity.
