Vitae et Mortem
Ledger Entry Number Nine
Awaking I set about making sure that the building work is started straight away, which has been started. Fortiftying the temples entranceway and also the hidden chamber dug underneath the temple, for my own personal use. The preistesses sleeping ares will also be made safer for them. I check that there is nothing needed to be done around the docks, which thankfully there is nothing needing my immediate attention. All the logs are upto date, so that leaves me free to carry out all my duties at the temple.
Bahl as promised had sent down 2 guards to protect the temple, who are standing either side of the doors, dressed very smartly and well equiped. I return to my chamber and soon there is a knock on the temple door and one of the guards tells me that Baldovine is here to see me. I tell the guard to let him in.
greeting Baldovine, he seems different somehow. I ask him to come in but he broptly refuses, saying that he is only here to quickly tell some information that he has, and then he will be leaving on other pressing matters.
He tells me a name, Iladum, this is the vampire who attecked the temple, and he also tells me that he he is saying that he is now incharge of the city. he asks me to send a message to Virius, apologizing for the death of Serinius and to tell him of this vampire and also that Baldovine intends to carryout both his and serinius plans. I agree to do this and ask him about Serenius and he looks down at his feet, and says it wasn an unfortunate accident. I also ask him if this means he is no longer part of the brotherhood, and if he isnt then I can offer him a safe haven for him to use, but he declines saying that he is happy staying in his cave. He doesnt want to stay too close to civilisation, he doesnt trust himself any more. I thank him for his help, and if there is ever anything I can do for him then he knows where I am.
I decided that once the work has been finished then I should go see Bahl, or send message to him asking for him to come see me. I send a messenger to Virius and also Bahl. I also decide to leave a message for the dock master in the morning saying that from now on any new Captains coming into port had to come and see me, also I wanted there to be four guards patrolling the docks and warehouses at night, to up the security of the place due to recent events.
I enter the temple to find 20 of Lillets accolites they ahve brought gifts and offerings for Dagon, with a message from Lillit saying that she has sent these gifts in our time of need, and that if I ever needed protection for my priestess then they would always be safe and welcome at her temple. I thank the accolites and ask them to than Lilet for her kindness, and that I will pay her a visit as soon as I can,but at the moment there is an urgent matter that I need to deal with first. They remind me to send messenger first so that we can both prepare ourselves for the meeting. I thank them again and send them on their way.
Soon after Bahl returns to the Temple with some of his girls, I ask him to leave his girls withmy priestesses so that we may talk in private.
I tell him the information I was given about this other vampire anc ask him for his assistance. He tells me he will gladly help, but he is also having troubles with a stronger vampire, which has been seen in his library. This vampire is strong and Bhahl is worried, I offer to send some of my priestess to the library during the day to see if the can find anything out, as most people will talk to priestess, as they do not see them as a threat. he is glad that I will do this and thanks me.
I thank him for his helpas he leaves to attend to the rest of his duties. I then go about my own duties, talking to anyt new Captains that have come to port. I also go see Magdalaine and tell her about the new guards tyhat are now outside for there protection and that they will remain there until she feels safe enough again.
Once all duties are finished I barr my door and return to slumber.
