29 Dawn, 1178: Evening
The party split up and headed to Isotta Donato’s gala in an attempt to find proof of collusion between her and the Ivory Cranes.
They found a group of nobles there including Salvadore de Abbraxio, Ico Viari, Imbroglione Zorzi, Betto de Albe, Alodia Entenza.
Surgat acted as lookout while Felurian investigated isotta’s office. While a drunk noble accidentally spoiled his friend’s actions. Stating that he was playing with an artifact in her curio room. When Caille and Lucca investigated they found that her giant statue of a Sene animated and attacked the noble.
Meanwhile, Felurian hears the screaming and decides to continue searching when she is accosted by ink devils. The little devils attempt to intimidate her out of the room, and instead she attacks them. Surgat came to her aid but was attacked by an invisible stalker.
The simultaneous fights were going very badly for the Masque and they were forced into a fighting retreat on both fronts. Isotta ran upstairs to assist in the curio room. When Surgat saw a nameless ivory crane trying to decide how to assist, he gave him a barrel of gunpowder and sent him upstairs. The ensuing blast buried Isotta and the demons. And destroyed most of the manor.
In the street, Ico, and betto helped them fight the animated statue. Eventually destroying it once and for all.
Betto denounced the Masque as spies and fired Surgat before leaving.
