The Journey Onward #campaigndiary Entry 16 (Part 2): The Clockwork City
At dinner, Milton explained, because of his past mistakes and the city being strict on trading laws, his business was failing. He tried to appeal to the council by doing tasks for them, but, for failing at those, he had to fix the clocktower. He asked Thatch to help him fix some of these rules and get his business back to which Thatch agreed. Milton said that at the end of the week, he would speak with the council and go from there. During the week, the party explored the city and accomplished a few tasks. Ell went to the tinkerer’s trove to learn about guns, Wesley went looking for anyone who knew about a legend he was told, “The beast and the guardian” and Sage, feeling trapped in the stone city, tried to plant flowers and trees anywhere she could. Sage also went with Shel to the clocktower to speak with a priest about the fiend. They learned that he suspected a harmful demon would have taken what they wanted by now so it was possible that her demon was more interested in tormenting her than actually harming her. Thatch also had some tasks to complete. First, he went to his old friend, Percival Flintheart Jr., a member of the council, who addressed him as his old name “Kill Shot” They talked and Thatch tried to explain the possibility of a changeling impersonator, Percival had his own troubles. He explained that the general, who took Thatch’s place, was now running the show. For helping Thatch escape Ironvale, the mayor was kicked off the council and Percival was disrespected for allying with Thatch. The general now keeps a tight watch over Ironvale and is getting more desperate every day to keep peace and order. Thatch’s old group is also returned, and it is only escalating the situation. Thatch left Percival’s house to speak with another friend, a tavern owner named Bernard, to get the party lodging. Finally, at the end of the week, Milton gave Thatch a letter from an unknown source telling him to meet at the clocktower at midnight.
