Has anyone seen Jackdaw??? was created by Sorn (SWF)
I've been trying to get in contact with Jackdaw and I can't find him anywhere. The town had all gone to these catacombs that were not too far from the proper. He was there with us when we went in but not when we came out. If he died I'm sure somebody would have brought him back.

If anybody finds him please make a note here.

I'm in the area for a few more days before heading back to Pendarvin. I'll keep an eye out for Jackdaw while I'm recovering.

Catacombs? I had to leave before midnight after the rituals because my leg unfortunately. May I get a bit more details about Sunday morning?

(I've fortunately received enough information about the end results of the banshee and the other ritual that occurred. However, if anyone would like to speak with me about it for details, I would appreciate it.)

Jackdaw is missing. In the catacomb, he saved me from a net that descended from the ceiling, but he was captured and dragged up to the ceiling. Blood dripped from the ceiling, but I couldn't see him, nor did I see his soul anywhere. I assume he is alive, but in someone's (or something's) captivity. Even when the catacomb collapsed, I could not find his soul.

I will be around the proper between feasts and will be on the lookout for his soul, but I doubt I will find it. I will let you know if anything comes up. I'm sorry that this is how you had to find out.

It's been more than a day, and I haven't been able to find him—or his spirit. If anyone in the Proper or out of it is willing to lend their aid in trying to contact or find Jackdaw, I know I would not be the only one who appreciates it.

But for any who do not know what catacomb is being referred to, I think the story deserves a little more context—and I fear that it may be more trouble in the future.

The catacomb is underneath a farmhouse not too far from the Proper, and was haunted by a kind of ghost called a White Lady. This ghost has since been laid to rest properly, but she appears to have been created by an individual referring to themselves as "Hierophant"—who communicated with someone referred to as "Devil", and referred to the ghost as "Temperance". Letters we recovered suggest these individuals are part of a larger group (who I think we determined have adopted similarly themed names), and that they harbor malicious intent toward Travance.

I should add that we tried to contact him telepathically directly after the incident and I don't believe we got any answer back. Perhaps we could try again soon.

In addition to Talaniel's information, Therion also informed us that when he went into the spirit plane inside of the catacomb, he saw thousands of hands crawling toward Travance. Therion, Adertha, and myself will be in the proper this month, preparing for Galladel's Watch and the coming threat.

I have been searching for him around the farmhouse and my estimatation of the area of the catacombs since Sunday and still no sign of him. I haven't found his soul either.

There were letters found. I have one and will post it later. There was also a piece of a phylactary.

Like Starling said, if you can help try to contact or find Jackdaw, we would appreciate it. I just got my Dad back, I'm not letting him go again without a fight. I'm staying in the Proper to search and investigate the area to find out anything I can about what took him and what is going on in that place. If you want to join me, I'll either be in the inn or out searching during the day. At night I'll be on watch and scouting.

Therion, Adertha, and Ergos, let me know if there's any way I can help you with your preparations while I make my own. Or if you'd like to collaborate.

Starling and Kes,

I wasn't aware of there being a catacomb to investigate and had I known, I'd have been there.... and maybe have managed to prevent him from being taken or managed to pursue. I am sorry I was not there.

If you do not have someone with those skills and knowledge base to properly investigate, please raven me and I will come out from Palindor; I am something of a talented journeyman where Stonework construction (traps, buildings, Catacombs, etc) are concerned.

While I have business in the City, if you need my help, I'll be there.

I swear if he ran away again I'll kill him myself.
I left the proper as the sun was rising last feast so I missed the events of Sunday, if anyone has more information than has been posted here please send me a missive.

Elias, that was my immediate thought as well. The major arcana has 22 cards including The Fool (the 0 card) I would not be surprised of this organization has all the major arcana filled, or at least seeks to have them so. I'm hoping that they haven't dipped into the minor arcana as well.

Tarot decks are one of the holy symbols of Chronicler, I worry that this may be some misguided cult, or perhaps it's unrelated and they just defile one of our holy symbols. Either way I may have to rethink my abstaining from the wrath side of divinity.

He didn't run away, Solitaire. Do you think I'd have lied?

I've been told there were once .... well, a full set, if you will, but no longer. Apparently this group has something to do with pieces or fragments of a phylactery, of which I have been told twelve to fifteen pieces now exist.

This is not a lot to go on, but I intend to try to look into this information, and would welcome any help in researching this.

Forgive me Talaniel, I did not mean to doubt you or anyone else who has relayed information of what has happened. I let my vindictive side get the better of me, the sapphire chose me for a reason even if it has left me. I will try to refrain from another outburst.
This is admittedly a sore subject for me, last time he was gone and I believed him dead I came to found that he had been carousing Coast Haven for almost the entirety of my life.
I was planning on looking into this already but I think we could do more if we work together, and I invite others to do the same.

As a Bounty Hunter new to Travance, perhaps a fresh perspective may be of some assistance? I don't know Jackdaw in more than passing, but Travance has already welcomed and protected me from a fair share of horrors- I feel obligated to try and begin to return the favor. It's no bounty- but if tracking skills are needed, I'll return to the grounds of the Catacombs and give it my own once over. That is, should Khala be willing to release me for a short while from the position she gave me at her sanctuary.

Nalick,
I was simply keeping my wording professional. Khala has been nothing but kind to me, I only meant that I'd like to be given her permission before gallivanting away from my new post.

And Khala,
So long as the students will be safe, then I'll spend some time looking for this Jackdaw fellow, and report back to the school when I am finished. They've been doing well without my services up until this point, but still. Breaking from my position so soon after starting it feels wrong. Should anything happen, I will rush back with haste.

Until then, I'll head back to the proper to help with the search efforts.

Normally I would encourage the enthusiasm. However you are under my employment and therefore my protection as well. I would recommend if you do intend to go back there, bringing one of more experience as well. If you wish, you and I can take Storm to get there quicker and spend a day checking the area.

Jackdaw being missing is thoroughly tied to the problem organization, so discussion in regards to them here seems appropriate to me.

I'd be happy to pin a different stack of letters next to this one if needed, however.

Astute. Catacombs never have one exit. Of course, with the entrance demolished we need to find the other way out, so that Jackdaw can find his.

This could be as simple as an iron grate, guarded by guardsmen. it need not be destroyed- just access denied to the opposition.

As for finding the other entrances, well we let our opponent do that for us. Every group needs supplies- even the undead led by a lich need a source of new corpses and components to refresh those casting the spells. we let them come out and forage, and let their sightings narrow down the search patterns. the key in what to look for is knowing what our enemy is and what they need.
