After being detained by city guards the party is lead to Moirai, giving them their first glance of the city proper. The White Gates tower above the group. To those in the group new to Moirai it give a sense of awe and wonder, but to those few that are familiar with the city the sight brings nothing but dread. These emotions are cut short, however, as the city guard quickly ushers the party through the gates and immediately onto the guards complex for questioning. The small dwarven caravan that was with the group is taken deeper into the complex, while the party is taken directly to the offices of the guard Captain.
While within the offices the group is introduced to guard Captain Aelethis Rel’rathas. Here the party is searched and relieved of their weapons and magical items, as per city law. All except Orn, whom carries official papers allowing him to retain his equipment. Through conversation it becomes clear the party is to be arrested and punished due to their involvement in the raid on the roadside.
Following this conversation with the captain the party, along with their confiscated possessions, are lead out into the complex yard and join with a chain gang of other detainee’s bound for trial by the local Magistrate.
While being lead by city guards through the city streets the chain gang becomes embroiled in a small riot that erupts unexpectedly around it. While the guards are distracted with defending themselves against the growing mob, a small gnome breaks through the melee and starts freeing the captives. The party taking advantage of the situation, regains their confiscated items and flees the chain gang and disappears into the roaring riot. The party is met by an old accomplice of Orns, who was the instigator of the riots, and guides the party to a back alley in where they rest and figure out what to do next.
