After spending the rest of the day walking from the dwarven mine, our five heroes came to the ferry that shuttles passengers back and forth between the mainland and Shadow Port. After paying a somewhat hefty fee, they entered the harbor at Shadow Port just as the sun was going down. After quizzing the small crew about the whereabouts of Jamven (none of them knew anything about him, but they did know about a local man named Yamvin—no relation), they took the advice of the ferrymen and spent the night at the Portside Inn, a local inn just along the waterfront.
At the Portside Inn they asked the manager about Jamven Pegason, although he really couldn’t provide them with a great deal of information. He did tell them that he thought he heard a rumor that Jamven was staying at Shadow’s Run (a local boarding house), but he advised them against visiting it as the streets of Shadow Port are not always safe at night. They decided to order food and drink and settle in for the evening.
The next morning they set out for the Shadow’s Run—the manager there told them that Jamven did own a local shop in Shadow Port, and gave them directions on how to reach it. After a short trip up the main drag of Shadow Port, they found Jamven’s storefront only to discover that it had recently been broken into. As they were looking around for clues, a group of dwarves entered the room demanding information on the whereabouts of Jamven. After a somewhat intense exchange, the dwarves left—as they finished exploring the store they discovered a receipt for an item Jamven had recently purchased from an unknown buyer.
After failing to break into Jamven’s locked store room, the group headed out to see if they could find any other information about Jamven from the locals—suddenly, they were intercepted by seven “neighborhood watch” men who questioned them about why they were leaving Jamven’s robbed store. The conversation quickly escalated into a fight—a particularly nasty fight that left Branan and Marduke knocked unconscious for periods of time while leaving their friends to carry on the battle. After the last thug was defeated, the group headed to a local health clinic for some much needed rest and medical attention.
