IVNIVS XI DCCCXCI
The PCs are once again contacted by Aggilius Hamatus who asks the PCs to investigate Milos Xiphaen, a cultist slain by the PCs in the events of Death in Liberportus. The investigation leads the PCs to suspect that councilor Titus Villemus Verlaine is in league with The Brotherhood of The Yellow Sign and approach his home but are imprisoned by Verlain’s vigilies.
At the courts of law in The Old City the PCs are threatened with exile but are rescued by a serpentman in the guise of Aggilius who tells them that their friend Lucius Plautus Varro has once again been captured by the Brotherhood.
The PCs are led into the sewers of Liberportus by the false Aggilius and eventually into a trap. Locked in a room with exploding amphora created by an enigmatic figure known as “The Alchemist”, they barely manage to escape a fiery doom. Through the sewers they find another subterranean temple to The Unspeakable one and manage to foil another cultist plot and rescue the real Aggilius. With the true Aggilius they flee the temple via a secret passage only to discover that the temple lies directly under the home of the councilor Verlain. A search of the home finds Verlain assassinated and incriminating documents branding the PCs as the assassins. The documents also foreshadow of an attack on the temple of Minerva that very night. They then dash to the temple of Minerva in order to protect it from the fell Brootherhood.
