In our latest installment, the heroes learn that the city, when it isn’t busy teleporting from place to place in Golarion, is in a place between time. The location, according to the mercane visitors, is in “the Great Beyond” on the “sea of time”.
The city seems to have mellowed a little. The oracle Milthek had a night time visitation and has had something of a change of heart. He’s not quite as full of malice and hate doesn’t glow in his eyes any more.
The party hitched a ride with the mercane to Absalom and did some trading, met Milton of the Academy, hidden down in a basement and somewhat…eccentric. He doesn’t get out much. He has agreed to come to the city and study it. He is the expert on ancient Thassilon (something akin to specializing in ancient babalyon in our time) and doesn’t do much other than read tomes and scrolls.
It has also come to the attention that the city of cities is one giant portal to other cities. Tapping into a portal to a different city should be easy, finding the route back though may be problematic.
The party was jumped in the pathfinders area by a group of orcs, one dressed in full plate and wielding a fell sword. He was bested and rather than surrender he sundered his weapon, causing an explosion (killing one of the clerics) and sending him to an alternate plane.
