The party travel stands at the entrance of the Ulbrinter Villa. The butler has announced that Lady Haventree is waiting for them in the garden.

  • safehouse. Remi believes there’s a Thayan safehouse in the Dock Ward and she wants the characters and her remaining agents to locate it. It must contain information that can help locate where in the North the Thayans are operating. Local fences are a good place to start looking, as it’s likely the Thayans will sell some of their stolen booty.
  • law enforcement. Waterdeep’s City Watch is ever present. Remallia reminds the characters of the Waterdeep Code Legal. Breaking the law in Waterdeep will get you arrested. Harpers prefer to work within the law, and Remallia makes it clear the characters are probably on their own if they get themselves in a pickle.
  • time limit. Time is of the essence in this matter, so Remi hopes the characters will stay on course, and avoid giving the Red Wizards’ agents too much leeway. Who knows how long they’ll stay in the city?
  • staying low. Finally, she urges the characters to be careful. If the Thayans hear the characters are looking for them, they might prepare an ambush. Word travels fast in the City of Splendors.

She also focuses her conversation on details the party discovered on Isolation Isle.

Evaluation of the desk contents:  Between the maps and logs on the table, it’s clear the supplies and press-ganged sailors are being sent north, though the destinations in the Sea of Moving Ice vary, with no discernable pattern. What correspondence there is clearly uses codenames. On one note, there is an inventory the supplies and crew taken from the Luskar Maid to be shipped north to the “excavation.” In the margin is scribbled “Drop location still not transmitted.” Another note lists items to be sold in Waterdeep and supplies to be purchased by the Sea Queen’s Fury. The note offers an assessment of Captain Klara K: “Captain K, of the Fury, came over easily enough when her ship was taken, but the calishite remains untrustworthy. Reevaluate after supply run and Robin’s report.”
