As the day continued, the crew of the Fortune had to stop their boat as they came to a large steel gate that crossed the length of the Black River. Unable to get around it, the party had no choice but to set out to the two large towers on either side that would contain the mechanisms for drawing the gate open.
Charmer and Tiberius took it upon themselves to climb into one of the Fortune’s dinghies and row to the northern bank. The self-proclaimed expert rogue carefully inspected the area for any traps laid by Alexia or her lunkies, but nothing was found. Tiberius, however, found one that Charmer overlooked while opening the door. Fortunately, Charmer had a potion to counteract the poison, so they ventured in.
The inside of the tower was covered in guano. Looking up, razorbats were perched on the ceiling. Tiberius and Charmer had to move quickly to fight them off.

It is a year later since Alexia ravaged the city with undead and took off with the Witchfire. Neither her nor the evil wizard have been heard of since. Alexia’s uncle, Father Dumas, prays day and night that she can be found and recovered safely.
At the end of the Battle of Longest Night, Alexia left the city with the Witchfire, and her mother’s body. The heroes of that night had determined that her plan was to resurrect her mother, murdered ten years prior, but no one had heard from her since. Certain that Alexia had no way to resurrect her herself without turning her into an undead monster, Dumas’ priests have kept their ears open for word of their travels.
Two of the Heroes of Longest Night stayed in Corvis, taking side jobs while assisting in the search for Alexia. Charmer, an elvish rogue, never liked being too far away from the city and its money anyhow. Arya, an eladrin witch, was more interested in the search for Alexia, but after the complete lack of clues, tended to stick with her companion Charmer, more often than not to keep him out of trouble.
