Cote Street Shadows

The gang was born under different stars, from many different parents and backgrounds, some came young and others a little later but they all spent time in the Old Fishery in the Midland district, they were looked over by Gaedran Lamm a tall lean and lothesome looking man with rotten teeth and agrophobia. He taught them how to steal and cheat from each other and from the “Marks”. He beat, tortured and made dissappear many a small boy and girl.

Nestor was a different matter he came once or twice and each time would speak to Gaelan and leave with a new Lamb, no one knew where he took them but they never returned. When they were chosen each of the Cote Lane Shadows thought it was their end, but it turned out to be their beginning instead.

Tasks and Trusts

Nestor sent the Shadows out thieving for enough funds to buy a barrel of pair brandy (10gp) – a fortune.

Each Shadow was also given a secret instruction.

  • Kez: break this bottle of brandy over the leader of the next opposition of the next fight you’re in. Then, run!

After spending most of the day conning and thieving the gang are jumped by 3 times their number of Lamm’s Lambs. A furious brawl ensues, knives are drawn at one point but moderate voices on both sides prevent bloodshed. The entire incident leaves the Shadows in a bad way, battered, bruised and unconscious there’s no denying we got the worst it.

However, Nestor isn’t entirely displeased, his boys discharged their missions well enough:

  • Kez scored a crit whilst assailing the Lamm’s leader with the brandy bottle and thoroughly soaked him in the pungent brandy.

Nestor reveals that he’d set us up to loose this battle so that we may win the war – the long con’s on and Lamm’s Lambs are about to take the fall for a crime that we’re about to commit! Plot So Far

Retrieve Varisian Harrow Cards

Plot So Far

So a Varisian Harrow Reader asked us to go retrieve her cards from Gedren Lamm, a pleasure. Quite a bit of planning to launch the assault from the sewers mainly to ensure we could get away if it went wrong – which it did. Elric was getting up to speed on his tools, we charmed Giggles to go keep intruders out and in we went. Fish guts to occupy the Gator – easy. Hmm well Lamm got away and a spider swarm and centipede had to be dealt with.
