    "Splendid" replies the assassin and bows his head once more.

    He then departs this location and roams the sewers using his usual tricks to stay unseen and hidden but more importantly to lose any kobold spies that may have been following him.

    After he is satisfied he exits the sewers at a neutral location and changes his clothes. He needs to be more presentable for the more civically minded Kobolds. After he has cleaned up and had something to eat he heads to the temple of Solaron.

    Ishmael considers this.

    "I currently am a follower of Kelemvor, judge and guardian of Souls but tell me more about Solaron!" he responds.

    "Solaron is the Shiny One. He brought the sun back to Hope when it got eaten. He protects and nurtures us on Conviction, and he likes to talk to the angels. Michrael leads them. Oh, and his dark and scary part, Solkiran, is there as well. But he's not so scary when he's trying to help you. Then there's Minrhet, his twin brother, the hot and angry one. He hurts the bad people. His sons are Namtar and Martu. They care more about dragons than they do others, but if someone else really likes dragons, they like them well enough. Solaron is born from the Old Sun just before it died. Then the Solaron Dragons went out searching for Solaron's grandson who was kidnapped and found their way to here. And we came after them and set up the temples to help spread Hope and Life."

    "Isn't Solaron really cool?"

    Ishmael listens to the story. Not much crazier than the story of other Gods... the exception was the whole 'and came to this plane of existence' part... he didnt know Gods also had travelling plans.

    Shruging he looks back down to the Kobold.

    "He certainly does sound cool. I am particularly interested in what you said about him spreading Life... if we can talk a bit more privately I would care to ask something concerning how He views unlife..."

    Ishmael smiles pleased that they are in more quiet a location.

    He leans forward and looks seriously at the kobold.

    "If you are aware of the tennets of Kelemvor you will know he despises those that roam the earth when they should be dead. Life must be safeguarded but when time comes judgement and death follow..." he says and pauses.

    "There are those that flaunt physical law and continue to exist even when Life has ended. Such ones not only exist but also destroy others or bring them in a similar condition...

    I am aware that recently you struck out against such a one but for whatever reason you chose not to end him and his progeny. I am here to continue your work..."

    "Solaron hates the undead too. They are the opposite of life, and therefore Light. Michrael wages total war against all undead he encounters on our home world. It is the imperative of every true follower of Solaron to destroy any undead we find."

    "You must mean the Master. To our shame, he escaped us. We were not used to dealing with undead that turn into vapor. We had nothing like them on our home. When we find its lair, it will be obliterated. If we have to, we will ask for an apprentice dragon from Minrhet's temple. If you could help us find and destroy such an abomination, we would owe you a debt of gratitude."

    "Very well. I too am interested in destroying this creature both for religious reasons but also because he and its servants once harmed my employer in the most vile way...

    I have in my custody a man, a false priest and prophet who works with the Vampire and is aware of where it can be found. Recently he helped him procure another set of coffins for its minions and I was present and partly sabotaged the transaction.

    He is set to meet him tomorrow night... or rather this night I guess. Can you marshal your forces to attempt a strike? I will also try to involve my own church as the stink of undeath does not sit well with Kelemvor... if you think we needed the added help off course..."

    "Well, I can get the six consecrated harriers in the temple ready for tonight. I probably can't contact any Rainbow Ascendants or apprentice dragons on such short notice, as that would mean going to Conviction and back, assuming that I could find one who thought this worthy of his attention. Still, unless this creature is significantly more powerful than it appeared to be last time, that should be enough to handle it."

    "I do not know what those harriers are but I guess they sound important enough. I will attempt to have servants of Kelemvor with us as well...

    The reason I want to move tonight is that if his mortal servant goes missing for days, the Master will no longer trust him. If he shows up at the hideout today, one day after he was supposed to deliver this deal then it should help us catch him un-aware." he explains.

    "Also what do you mean apprentice Dragon???" he says just realising what the kobold said.

    "They're the priests who train in how to destroy undead very well."

    "Well, I hear in your world dragons are smart animals that hatch from eggs. In the world I come from, dragons are powerful mages and psions who follow the tenets of Minrhet to shape their forms to match his own. Mages who haven't yet begun to transform are just mages. Those who have taken the first steps are apprentice dragons. They like to give themselves some fancy name like 'Athasian Acolyte' or something, but they're just apprentice dragons. Then there are the true dragons, those who have completed their transformations. They're pretty scary. Minrhet's followers don't like undead either, but they don't care as much about it like we do."

    "Well, that's true of Athasian dragons, anyways. Particularly devoted prismatic kobolds can become Prismatic Ascendants and eventually transform themselves into small prismatic dragons. Of course, TRUE prismatic dragons, the ones in whom Solaron's divine blood flows are far too powerful and large to be transformed into. Of course, neither do they hatch from eggs. As nice as they are, though, they are strictly non-violent."

    "I shall return in a few hours for the strike...." he says before departing towards the twin temple.

    Upon arrival, it couldn't have been more different than the previous temple. Solaron's temple is a bright, multicolored, choatic mess. Minrhet's place is a grim, austere sanctuary of meditation. Draconian creatures of all sorts meditate quietly in side chambers, while a young red dragon is play-wrestling with a silver one in the center of the room. This seems rather odd to you, considering what you were told about dragons of Minrhet being powerful mages.

    No one even glances your way as you enter.

    Ishmael advances taking in the details and looking around for a priest or attendant.

    If noone appears he calls out, loud enough to be heard but not to make a scene.

    You notice that, despite the appearance of a variety of draconic creatures, there do not appear to be kobolds on this side.

    "Ah, yes, the priests of the Light Eternal. We here in the Burning Waste honor and respect their call. Where the Light Shines in the darkness, so also will the heat burn away the cold. Tell us when and where to meet, and we shall have ten spawn ready to aid you.

    The undead are a dark coldness that should never be tolerated. We will burn them from existence.

    "Very well. I shall send the location as soon as I can... or rather as soon as I have it. The Vampire is a secretive one..." he says and departs.

    Seeing as he is in the territory he decides to visit his patron temple once more.

    He appoaches the temple of Kelemvor and enters. He spends a good quarter of an hour praying for guidanc and success. It is true that he rarely dealt with the undead due to his actual nature of work but in reality the tennets of the Judge included the destruction of the undead as a primary concern...

    Once his prayers are done he approaches one of the clerics.

    "Good day brother. May I speak with the High Priest in a private environement?"

    Ishmael nods his understanding.

    "Very well. Is there a private place we can talk father?" he asks and assuming they indeed depart from the central chamber he explains the situation.

    "In my varied... experiences I have come upon a cancer to the city. It is an undead, a vampire by the name of 'The Master' that has a host of vampire spawn to do his bidding. I have an agent of his in my custody, possing as a cleric, who was giving shelter to the vampire and generally aiding it with his own will and without being dominated or otherwise..." he pauses at this point.

    "I have been tasked by my patron with the destruction of this creature and have already asked the Church of Solaron for assistance given that like Kelemvor their own deity hates the coldness and absense of life that are the undead. In our case I am familiar with our own tennets... an intelligent undead roams the world in scorn of the judgement that must come to his soul when he perishes...

    As such I ask for your assistance... I myself have other talents, information gathering for example and some combat abilities but fear going against such a potent undead on my own given that it could attempt to trick me, control me or swamp me with its undead minions..."
