1) Talara Vordon bypasses Sariah (Arya’s Aunt) and goes straight to Arya for a special mission: to investigate the local creepy advisor dude to her grandfather, Patriarch Thaxos Vordon. She suspects that he is up to no good.
2) The party discovers orphans being smuggled to the old dude’s lair. This can’t be good.
3) The party discovers that the old dude is draining the life force from the orphans to make some sort of horrible life enhancing potions. Thaxos is a pretty old dude… might be interested in buying his way towards life extension.
4) The party informs Valara. Noted.
