    Bleerie replies, still dead serious. "Looking for planars. Well, more of them. We hunt them, and we know they have a base here. In fact, we would like to know everything you can tell us about them - we might just be able to help you out with... disinfestation." She waves at the corpses. "But first, tell us: how many of you are here, still alive? How is life here? We are likely to spend some time in the city."

    While talking, Bleerie starts rummaging around the corpses, to look for interesting clues, some writings maybe, and whatnot.

    "That is a pretty big claim for such a cute little gnome. My loyalty lies first with my people. However, giving you information on the planars can't really hurt. From what I've seen there are at least a few dozen upper planars that have taken over the city.

    A few years after the Second Wave, a lot of the planars moved on and out of Waterdeep as it was no longer worth staying. But a few stayed behind, trying to set up their own kingdom here.

    Life here takes some getting used to. My first warning would be to stay off the streets. The merchant district seems to be filled with mostly formian, but be very careful around the old royal district as that is where the majority of the planars reside.

    There are a few merchants in the old temple district if you know where to look. The planars let them live and trade because they provide them with valuable gear.

    How many of us? People living in Waterdeep, while I don't know exactly of the top of my head I'd say a few hundred. But we all live in the tunnels under the city. Most of the people can't defend themselves from the planars on the surface. So a few of us come to the surface to scavenge for food and supplies. Which is when I ran across you guys."

    Considering his response briefly, Gale decided to trust this fellow, if only because he was from Waterdeep, same as her.

    "They seem to have some kind of truce with the uppers for now, they don't bother each other. A few months ago they just showed up, and since then have taken other the merchant district. I haven't been able to find their queen to kill her."

    @Gale Knowledge Planes on the Shadow Plane
    Spoiler
    Show

    The Plane of Shadow is a dimly lit dimension that is both conterminous to and coexistent with the Material Plane. It overlaps the Material Plane much as the Ethereal Plane does, so a planar traveler can use the Plane of Shadow to cover great distances quickly. The Plane of Shadow is a world of black and white; color itself has been bleached from the environment. It otherwise appears similar to the Material Plane. Despite the lack of light sources, various plants, animals, and humanoids call the Plane of Shadow home. The Plane of Shadow is magically morphic, and parts continually flow onto other planes. As a result, creating a precise map of the plane is next to impossible, despite the presence of landmarks.

    As for it's denizens, most creatures from the plane are similar to this one.

    Huh. If these formians are from the shadow plane, they have not been there in a while. They could be blinded, and it seemed to make a difference, and they were not black and white.

    Whoops, thought Gale was done. Bleerie will say the following once Gale has ended her questions, I don't want to disrupt the talk.


    The man had managed to belittle Bleerie on his first sentence. Well, she was used to it. "This is all useful information, thank you. Do you think you know a safe place where we could rest and eat, and possibly get to know more of you survivors?"

    A plan was starting to form in Bleerie's head, on how to liberate the city.

    Bleerie almost jumps at the thought of losing their only contact. "No, no, we will definitely come then Bailey. Listen, guys, there are plenty of battles ahead. There is no reason to rush. As I learned in many years of battle, surprise is the key element in warfare. If we camp outside, the enemy will have the surprise. If we only fight when we are prepared, we will win. Let us rest and plan, trust me."
