Nearly a two months have passed since Saul Vancaskercan offered the adventurers a stake in the Gold Goblin Gambling Hall after that fateful night at the Cheat the Devil...Take His Gold tournament. Just a week into their tenure their floor manager, Feldin Harur disappeared while making a loan payment to Lymas Smeed; unfortunately it turned out that he had been killed, Smeed framed, and a sly man known as Mark Abbott pulling all the strings.
After discovering who was truly the murderer, and reclaiming their gold to make the first loan payment to Smeed, things became relatively quiet at the Gold Goblin and it returned to business as usual. But during these past two months Samaritha, the high spirited youth who was hired by the adventurers, has slowly drifted into a deep depression over the fact that not a single Cyphermage has agreed to take her on as an apprentice. She has sought solace in her employers but not a single one pays her any attention which has only fueled her dark thoughts and misery as her health slowly declines.
Saul has been unusally quiet, spending most of his time counting profits and arranging for loan payments to pay for his renovations of the gambling hall and has constantly complained how his shipment of exotic, and expensive, liqours has failed to arrive in Riddleport; it was supposed to arrive in time for the gambling tournament...
Riddleport has also been extremely quiet.
The Blot continues to move randomly overhead and little headway has been made in determining how it arrived over Riddleport or to its function. There have been rumors that the Cyphermages have made an important discovery regarding its nature but have kept quiet whether they know or not.
All in all it has been rather borish with very little to do other than work day in and day out. But It rarely stays that way for long in Riddleport.
