Immediately upon arriving in Memnon, the party made several enemies by attacking the toll collectors that accosted them on the docks, massacring the thugs that had attempted to intimidate them. Thus they earned the enmity of some higher authority, because after journeying to the Slum of Rats to search for unholy water they were attacked by a group of mercenaries led by the sorcerer that had escaped them at the docks, and were nearly killed. Deciding not to make too much of the incident, they traveled to the Slum of Blades and spent a day fighting in the gladiatorial arenas there. They faced minotaurs, goblin worg-riders, lizardfolk, and a hydra to name a few, and came out relatively unscathed, except for one particularly unfortunate encounter. Caedis traveled to the Slum of Towers to get some items appraised and identified, and journeyed back on the morning of the second day. In the process he learned that some of their assailants in the Slum of Rats had been members of an elite mercenary group called the Bloodstone Brotherhood. They entered several more fights that morning, and are now perhaps ready to pursue some other activity during the single day they have left before the departure of the Reaver.
