Sol learns that Temple of Sarenrae is returning in 2 weeks, to coincide with the arrival of the next action of the Cult of the Red Rain. Party completes A Break in the Dam and Treasure of the Blue Lotus 1.
A Break in the Dam: A dam that helps create a small lake of fresh water for the pearl garrison is mysteriously losing water. This is impacting the garrison’s ability to smith. The party will be lead to the underground entrance to the lower part of the dam. Battle Sapphire Jellyfish to recover Drow Founding Relic (a scroll depicting drow as the founders of Ziggarat). Discover a tributary of the River Styx flows through this water table. Discover the fresh water that is tapped into to fill the lake above is indeed blessed by Besmara. Battle Piscodaemon and charda cohorts to prevent River Styx water from being fed upwards into lake.
Treasure of the Blue Lotus 1: Legend tells of the first pirates that sailed out from Ziggarat included a drow pirate with piercing blue eyes shaped like that of a lotus. She was a devout follower of Besmara and would not sell or gain favor for any treasure that was directly linked to the goddess. Many of her underlings felt differently, so the Blue Lotus would take to hiding her most faithful treasures away from prying eyes. Father Agni has set aside a dias in the Catherdral to display these treasures if found. Party discovers the first artifact, the Compass of the Seawraith, under the Pearl Garrison dam. Covered by a vile webbing of muck (black tar substance, previously encountered in city) stitched together with the bones of dead drow. Party heads further into the earth to find a hidden pocket, humid and tropical. Defeats the fist of Besmara and 2 clay golems (Sol and Pipsqueak being granted temporariy lordship of the golems). Defeats shadow lock to retrieve compass of the Seawraith. Remy makes cohorts of a small group of dead pirate wraiths who then transform him into one of them long enough to move the compass back to the surface.
