After collaring the criminal Verik Vancaskerkin in his disgusting abbatoir, the motley party turned him over to the constabulary of Korvosa. Returning to their tavern for some much deserved rest, they soon received yet another plea of help from Commandant Cressida Kroft, the captain of the Korvosan Guard. She asked them to go and speak with Devargo Barvassi, the lord of a den of vice called Eel’s End in Old Korvosa. It seems the Chelaxian ambassador, Amprei, frequents Eel’s End to indulge in games of chance and Kroft hoped to uncover information which would give Korvosa the upper hand in dealing with him or remove him from his ambassadorship altogether and she believed Barvassi had that key. The party managed to infiltrate Eel’s End with ease, cautiously and cleverly filtering through the various establishments of vice and pleasure. Securing an audience with Barvassi by enlisting the help of Madame Helvara, the cleric Tenderil led the party into the audience chamber of Eel’s End and before Barvassi himself. With some negotiation and several displays of skill and bravery at the game of Knivesies, the group convinced Barvassi to part with several incriminating letters which will surely bring Amprei to heel or bring him down altogether. Despite getting away unscathed, the group later returned to hold Barvassi to the outrageous offer he made on a whim to sell his pet pseudodragon, Majenko, to one of the party, who took an inordinate, yet undetected, interest in the creature.
