After the duel aboard the Shadowblack, Ragnar and Korhil must find the missing Eye of the Sea and thwart The Cloak’s devious plan, once and for all.
On a tip from a local gondola pilot, Ragnar and Korhil head to the “northern bazaar” to meet a gem trader named Faris al-Farik. The journey to the northern bazaar proves frustrating, as the locals harass and harangue the two weary travellers.
After a long walk and a lot of trouble, the boys find themselves at the northern bazaar. Faris al-Farik is a heavyset Calishite, smoking a hookah and relaxing on a pillow in his tent. Ragnar and Korhil trade a bag of fine rubies for a special map, which shows the locations of the the Keepers of the Eyes.
A cursory examination of the map shows only two Keepers. Korhil surmises that until the third Eye is given to its new Keeper, only Ragnar and Ordeth will appear on the map. The pair begins the long trek back to the ship, but they are not alone…
Passing through a large open air market, Korhil picks up a cloaked figure tailing them. They turn to confront the mysterious stranger, but he takes flight. Korhil and Ragnar have no choice but to give chase. The stranger has command of shadow magic, and calls Shades to slow down our heroes. Ragnar and Korhil make their best efforts to keep up, but between dealing with Shades and the stranger indiscriminately killing innocent bystanders, they lose him in an abandoned warehouse.
Once inside, Korhil and Ragnar don’t give up hope. They know that the stranger must be hiding somewhere, so they turn the warehouse inside out. A well in the center of the room proves to be a hidden passage, and they descend into the sewers of Calimport.
The tunnel they find heads straight down into a large antechamber with an altar. They sneak up to the room and spot a strange sight. The stranger kneels at the altar, while a large humanoid creature made of water whispers a prayer over him.
“And all the blessings and curses of the waves shall rest on the shoulders of you and your brothers. Rise and see what the waters hold, Keeper.”
The map in Ragnar’s pocket flashes a bright light, and the stranger turns to sight of it.
“Brother, I thought you’d never come.” spat The Cloak, “I’ve missed family so much.”
Ragnar and Korhil fight valiantly against The Cloak and the water spirit, but the spirit quickly floods the chamber. Korhil is forced to abandon Ragnar, and escape to the street surface. On the surface, Korhil sees the crew being harassed by the port authority. It seems the fake jewelery scam that Captain Vicaste used to gain access to the harbor has been discovered, and they are being ejected from the city.
Reunited with Princess Sarah, Korhil explains that Ragnar has fallen into The Cloak’s hands, and they must rescue his friend. Capt. Vicaste and the Ordeth explain to Korhil that if The Cloak has two of the Eyes, he will no doubt make his way to Mount Waterdeep, forcing the hand of the remaining Keeper and whomever may have the Heart of the Sky.
Feeling uneasy without the powerful Ragnar Brockson on board, the Shadowblack sets sail for Waterdeep…
