QM Note: Sorry Scuba, it's just not registering with me that Guts is part Barbarian, obviously!  Fixed below.  I did remember to put the Ruby in your inventory, though.

Maurice heals up himself, Nagure, Nerwen, Sorrow and Mizuki at the cost of 5 Ether, whilst Guts drinks a grand potion from his vast stash, along with his Mead, Nostrum and Smelling Salts.  He is up and raring to go, and is disappointed when the Guardsmen are nowhere to be seen.

The party:

Hergrit responds to Maurice's suggestion that they go to the church with a look of alarm.

"That's where the Sisterhood is!  You must be careful when you go there!"

Ismelda shakes her head as she responds to Nerwen.

"I don't know of anywhere that sells those items.  The Guardsmen have shut down most of the traders and vendors here in Miranda.  Just another thing to blight our city."

To the church then. There seems to have been enough foreshadowing that that is where we should go next.

Ismelda says to Mizuki:
Posted Image
"Well I believe you have already been to the warehouses.  The Guardsmen may keep special, confiscated items in the Armoury, I don't know."


The party say farewell to Ismelda and Hergrit, who start to sadly shuffle off back to their burnt out and debris-strewn kitchen.  

Hergrit turns and in his soft voice says:
Posted Image
"At least we know know that there is someone fighting for us, fighting for Miranda.   Thank you, heroes."

The party travel to the Church marked on the map given to them by Byverion, always on the lookout for Guardsmen now that they were Miranda's most wanted, but the short journey passed without incident.  The church was an imposing white structure, ornate, with lots of gleaming pillars.
Posted Image

As they passed through the two large pillars, they could see something at the end of the room.
Posted Image

Getting closer, they could see it was the third Summoning Amulet, suspended in the air.

What will the party do?

"Hm, where is this "Sisterhood" that Hergrit talked about? I thought they would be here at the church and I had hoped to talk to them."
Maurice looks around in the church to see if he can find someone.
"Hello?! Anyone here?"

Nerwen's agile mind picks out the face of their former employer, Sonora, scrambled on the floor tiles. She grips her weapon tighter.

I look closely at the floor tiles. I shift, tilt, rotate, swap them in my mind: eventually it forms a human face. What kind of sorcery is this...?

"Guts? I believe I see our villanesses' face scrambled over the floor. maybe we should throw a bomb or something to blow up the tiles?

Nerwen moves the tiles in her precise way, leaving the image of a face created by the four tiles.  As anticipated by the keen eyes of the Elf, it resembles the face of Sorona, their previous handler in their initial attempts to find the Darkstar gem..
Posted Image

With the four tiles locked into position, they slide inwards together, finishing off the face mural, and the Summoning Amulet drops to the floor with a loud clang, which echoes around the silent walls.

What would the party like to do?

"I did see it. This... Sisterhood... I bet it's work of Sorona. Haroka is a dangerous man, but I'd choose a fight with him over one with Sorona any day, be careful."

Guts looks around carefully while Maurice picks up the amulet, and unsheaths Lifestealer.

Mizuki checked her compass, and it pointed directly to the amulet.  Maurice grasped the Amulet and was immediately frozen, unable to move.  A cold, mocking laugh echoed around the church as Sorona stepped into their view, accompanied by several pale attendents and a priestess on a bizarre, skeletal, stag-like creature.
Posted Image

Posted Image
"Perhaps you should have followed up on the poor Paladin's request to inspect the amulet for traps", Sorona smiled, but there was no warmth in her voice.  "I really thought it would be you who was caught, my dear Guts.  You, who are always looking for something else to take.  Welcome to my church, everyone.  Welcome to the Sisterhood of Sorrow.  I knew you'd find your way back to me, Rogue.  It is also good to see you, Nerwen.  Still playing the level-headed one to Gut's rash impetuousness?"
