Reaching Sapphire port, the party convinced the guards to allow them entrance even though the guard warned them of the battle within. Entering the city, it is apparent that much of the city must either be held up in their houses or hiding. Entering the town center, the Tenebris Ignis was grasp from behind be a shade of sorts and heard, "I saved your lives and for that you are welcome, go to the fountain three blocks north and enter if you wish to end this conflict, there you will find the true conflict. Slay your foes or unite the brethren of the dark. The choice is yours, but heed my words, the blood of your friends will fall before this is all over.”
The fountain in the center of town grants them entrance after solving a mechanical puzzle. The fountain which depicted Peliphene lying on a bed of water opened up and revealed a staircase that led them to an underground area. Poorly lit, dank, and filled with pillars, this space was the battlefield for the Thieves and Assassin’s. Stepping in the middle, the party assisted the thieves and split up to gather information about both factions.
In the middle of the conversation there is a sudden explosion within the columned room behind them. As both faction ran into the darkness, the source was soon very apparent. Half the rooms’ columns had been struck down, and there at the end a being stands seemingly alone. The dust cleared and in the cavern where the silhouette of the being stood, stood a man his face obscured. An echo bounces through the room and with it, the man’s voice travels. “The distress you have caused this city is impermissible and for that, I have been released from my slumber. I must thank you, I never thought Pelsiphene would release me, but she is indeed furious… you two warring factions has caused such fear and distress that she has forsaken you… She hoped that I would slaughter you all, BUT… not yet, I am the being that was once feared by all races, and now I will rise again. Await the coming storm for I am Sevarion, “The Tsunami”” In a flash of blue flame, he disappears.
At this point the thieves and assassins made a temporary cease fire agreement, and that the party was called here by Mira, so it must be there job to slay the creature. The party bears the burden well and makes there way to speak with Mira who then also sends them off to face the beast. After going to the library, They convince two ships to escort them into the Maelstrom of Passion, the suspected resting place of the Divine Staff of Peliphene which has the power to slay the great Sevarion.
