In his last visit to Tusks, Dolos struck a deal with Ta’Keesh, he would get some of his women back who had been stolen, and owe the cat a ‘favor’ in the future, in return the cat would tell him everything he knew of “The Revenant”
A local crime-lord and racketeer named Dulgat Teventi, is growing ever bolder and braver, he’s honing in on other peoples ‘turf’ and making many enemies quickly. Specifically he had his men seize one of Ta’Keesh’s bawdy-houses and shut it down, much to the shock of any that heard about it. Dulgat then paid the local city guards to jail them and is demanding an absurd payment or he will have them killed. The cat is not interested in paying an obscene price for his own property, he just wants his ladies back, but in the interest of cooperation, he tried to strike a more reasonable deal with Dulgat Teventi but no dice. So now Ta’Keesh goes to war, quietly. The opening shot is to get his women back from the west quarter guards jail, he does not want the teventi using them against him. He explained to Dolos that in this venture, coin will likely work best, but nobody will notice a few dead jailers in the west quarter and in his usual hands-off approach, simply left the execution of the plan up to the Tiefling.
After linking up with Harlen and Laphantus, the trio made their way to the jail after dark. Despite some failed attempts at intrigue, the party managed to managed to convince the desk Sargent to take a sizable sum of money and flee the city with his family, as the Teventi have no reach beyond darwash.
Taking the women through town, the trio was set upon by Teventi thugs that had been watching them. Through intimidation and persuasion it looked like a fight would be avoided, however at that moment Derrick Bonesteel and several house Banwell guards appeared. It became apparent that Turian and Teventi had a beef as much as (if not more) than Ta’keesh and Teventi. A lopsided slaughter broke out, with the Banwell men and ravens easily eliminating the Teventi thugs.
Derrick had heard some ravens were working for Ta’Keesh, but was shocked to find the group that was working was some of the ravens ‘top crop’. He told them to come to him for some ‘less-than-legal’ work to them in the future.
Upon returning to the Inn, Teek confronted the party, and was visibly concerned for the well being of not only the party, but the whole of the ravens. It would seem other ravens had been getting involved in the underworld out of boredom as well.
