Previously on Critical Role Edit

"Last we left off, The Mighty Nein had gotten caught up with some interesting folks. The Knights of Requital, who had hoped to help shift some of the political balance of the city: remove, through the framing and forging of materials and letters, some of the corrupt individuals in the local government. They had gone out in the evening, infiltrated a few of the homes and left this information behind, got in a few scuffles, leaving one of them, The High Ricter, dead. Shortly after, there was an attack on the Tri-Spires by two Xhorhasian, assassin-type individuals.

You met with one in the sewer in trying to escape from being seen by the local guard during this confrontation, and did battle with what seemed to be a Crick warrior of some kind. You subdued it, removed most of its equipment, and conflicted over this strange artifact, this beacon that it was carrying. You sent it on its way. However, it was quickly caught by the guard and killed. You met, on the surface, the guard that were bringing the corpse and the object along. You managed to spirit away the strange dodecahedron from the grasp of the town guard and absconded with it.

You [Beau and Fjord] met with Dolan and Horris who were currently trying to figure out what to do in case they were somehow implicated with the events of the evening. You [Fjord] took Horris under your wing, promising Dolan that you would somehow smuggle him out of the city that's currently on lockdown during this investigation.

You all then managed to, trying to find some sort of lead on what the next step would be, went toward The Evening Nip, apparently to seek, possibly, this individual known as The Gentleman who you had heard of previously. As Cara, one of the Knights of Requital who had vanished, seemingly had some sort of connection there. So, you entered The Evening Nip, gave the previously discovered words - the code words - that allowed you entry, and were led down a long, spiral staircase beneath the establishment into a subterranean bar. Upon which, after immediately stepping into the space, a black-furred, female tabaxi approached Mollymauk and, with a look of recognition, said, 'Lucien,' and embraced him."

Part I Edit

The tabaxi woman breaks away from Molly to find a table for the group. Molly turns and whispers to Fjord, "This is my worst nightmare. My name is Lucien. Just go with it," and tells him to pass it along to the others. Yasha appears, saying that the group passed her at The Evening Nip, and she followed them down the staircase. The tabaxi woman calls the group over to a table and immediately begins asking Molly how he's still alive. Molly mostly dodges the question. The tabaxi woman introduces herself as Cree.
