  • 21st - 30th: Ahmadar & Evendur Study Week.
    • Ahmadar: General Study: Sleep, Mage Hand, Mending; DC 12 - Successful. Focused Study: Sleep; DC 21 - Failed.
  • 23rd: Fleetswake. In the middle of Fleestwake, Khelben "Blackstaff" Arunsun sends members of his household (Ahmadar, Ciro and Glim) to fetch his new apprentice Evendur from the House of Wonder. He is introduced to the other apprentices (Aelandelia and Dran Wands), shown his new quarters, given the tour and then has his interview with Khelben for the first time.
  • 26th: Fleetswake. Blackstaff Tower is visited by an unassuming wizard who names himself simply "Im" who is a friend of Khelben's.
    • As it turns out, he is Imrul Athelzedar: the Magister of Mystra. He bestows surreptitious gifts of spell scrolls on the apprentices before he and Khelben retire to catch up.
    • In a few hours, Khelben emerges, announcing that he has to leave with Im for a tenday or so. They depart as evening falls.
  • 30th: Highcoin Ball (Society Event)

  • 1st - 10th: Aelandelia & Glim Study Week. Researching: xxx
    • Ahmadar: Focused Study: Sleep; DC 20 - Success.
  • 2nd: Waukeentide. As Ciro attends his mother Andedda Melshimber on her first shopping excursion of the year, Dran finds him to reveal that Aelandelia has been arrested by the Watch for thievery.
    • They fetch the others at the tower, which begins an investigation that reveals the person who actually committed the thievery was none other than the half-elf mage-thief Demisante.
    • In searching for her at the Warm Beds Inn and Sleeping Snake, they run afoul of some hired toughs: a halfling named Jamis, a wastrel duelist and a pair of short-sword-wielding sailors, who are all beaten handily.
    • They track her to the Yawning Portal, only to discover she is just now being dropped down the well. The group is forced to follow her into Undermountain.
    • Though their travails end up in injury for nearly everyone and the actual death of Glim, they find Demisante...in the company of a dwarf named Ahkhalan who is Ahmadar's twin brother! Ahkhalan is a slaver, and his small group is being hosted by some drow in a temple to some god named Selvetarm, depicted as male and sword-wielding. He clearly expects the drow to protect him, but their leader, a priestess named Essra is infuriated that one of his have led outsiders to their temple, and so contemptuously raises the dead halfling, and rescinds the protection of her temple to the slaver and his cohorts.
    • Ahkhalan promises to kill Demisante for her actions, and she switches sides. The apprentices are aided by a half-elven ranger who has been hunting Ahkhalan. The slaver ends up fleeing the scene using a strange horned ring, and they are permitted by the drow to depart. Demisante leads them back out of Undermountain.
  • 9th: Evendur receives an invitation from his father to himself and the others at the tower to attend a family dinner thrown in honor of his Aunt Coremita, who is visiting Waterdeep for a time.
  • 10th: Spheres (Society Event)
    • At the event, Alyra finds Evendur and begs him to come to the family dinner. She has to go, as she needs to find a way to get some mercenaries at a good price for help with Ammakyl lands that are being raided, and she can't bear to go there alone.
  • 11th - 20th: Dran & Ciro Study Week. Researching: xxx
  • 15th: House Husteem Dinner. This dinner turns out to be more interesting than anyone could have anticipated:
    • Everyone from the tower shows (save Aelandelia), and Ahmadar has brought his mother, Teshura, from the Crawling Spider!
    • Audyna arrives with Hlethvagi Anteos on her arm, and Orlpar & Olegh arrive late, with a guest of their own - Ahmadar's brother Ahkhalan! The brothers take a moment to confer, and seem to return to the table mollified, and Ahkhalan seems as enchanted to meet his mother as she is to meet him.
    • At dinner intermission, Coremita takes Evendur aside and emphasizes the good of the House to him, and how valuable he could be to them. And if that isn't enough to bring him home, she points out that he still has a little brother and sister whom he has abandoned to the tender mercies of his father, aunt and uncle. He promises her that he will make more of an effort to be around.
    • Before they leave, Lord Orbos takes Evendur aside, and tells him that he is proud with what he has done with his life - becoming an apprentice to the Blackstaff is an incredible honor, and he has great potential to be a person of genuine importance. The two have a measured, cautious reconciliation.
  • 16th: Ahmadar has a conversation with Durnan of the Yawning Portal about Demisante, and thief-catching.
  • 18th: The apprentices receive word from the Magister that Khelben has been cursed or diseased and is in Silverymoon where they are trying to heal him. The apprentices are needed for research, however, as no one else can be trusted at the Vault of Sages.
    • They are instructed how to find the Magister's Refuge, but on their way to it, they are stalked by and end up killing a mind flayer.
    • Arriving in Silverymoon by teleportation, the apprentices meet two old friends of Ciro's: the archivist Noumea Drathchuld, and the paladin of Mystra (and son of Lady Alustriel) Naerond Aerasume. They are taken to the Silver Inkwell, a tavern to relax.
      • Glim speaks with the proprietor, Rengally Maerys, who seemed to know her mother Syanee; he suggests that if she has questions, she seek out Mielikki's Grove nearby.
      • Ahmadar is hailed by a trio of dwarves who wonder if he's a scholar from Citadel Adbar; a number of them seem to have been in the area in recent days.
      • Noumea and Evendur seem to hit it off, although she is shy and he's a gentleman, so the flirting remains modest. On the other hand, Ciro retires to the High Palace of Alustriel with Naerond after the tavern.
    • Afterwards, Glim visits the Grove, and meets Daemera of the Bow, a ranger priestess of Mielikki, who tells her some information about her mother - most notably, that she was a Harper! While there, Ahmadar also picks up a pilgrim's token and some printed information about Lurue for Demisante.
  • 19th: That day the apprentices begin their research work. The Keeper Haliver Mourin is quite wroth at being left out of the undertaking. The group decides to avail themselves of Noumea's knowledge of the library in their research. She gives her work to focus only on the topics being researched - she will leave it to them to piece together their findings into something relevant to the issue at hand.
  • 20th: During the research, the Keeper approaches a sleepy Ahmadar and indicates that his research into their problem has hit a dead end, and asks for his own findings to perhaps spur his own research further again.
    • Sensing something amiss, Ahmadar tries to escape him, when the Keeper turns into a doppleganger and attacks him! Fortunately Ahmadar's rat familiar with with the others, and it alerts them to danger, and they come running, putting a quick end to the doppleganger.
    • In response to the danger of anyone in the Vault possibly being a doppleganger, Lady Alustriel orders the Vault cleared of everyone save the researchers. Keeper Haliver is made more aware of the stakes of what is going on, and he assists them in clearing the Vaults quickly and efficiently. The Aerasume triplets (Naerond, Tarthilmor and Lilinthar) show up to guard the researchers.
  • 21st - 30th: Ahmadar & Evendur Study Week.
    • Evendur: Focused Study: Feather Fall; DC 22 - Failure.
    • Ahmadar: Focused Study: Mage Hand: DC 21 - Failure.
  • 21st: The research continues, with Ahmadar having powered through any need for sleep in over 48 hours. Once he finally has to give in, he and Evendur retire to the chambers upstairs. While they sleep, however, something disturbs the owls in the rafters, waking Ahmadar. They are attacked by werewolves while something large claws at the roof trying to get in! A manticore bursts through into the garrett and attacks them as well. They slay it, with the air of the Aerasume triplets.
  • 22nd: Finally, they discover what might be some kind of origin of the illness that besets Khelben. They are brought to the High Palace to rest while the Magister and Lady Alustriel go off to deal with the Beast Lord at the Ruins of Dekanter.
    • The heroes get some much needed rest and relaxation, including large marble baths and palace body servants (including a dwarven "freelancer" brought in just for Ahmadar's relaxation). This time away gives Evendur and Noumea some additional time together getting to know one another.
  • 23rd-27th: The Vernal Trousseau Festival (Society Event)
  • 24th: Lady Alustriel and the Magister return with samples of the venom used on Khelben, and bring in a highly skilled alchemist to help them formulate an antidote with the Magister's aid.
    • During this time, the Magister and Noumea seem to be having some extensive discussions in the garden. Lady Alustriel speaks with Evendur, reassuring him that the Magister has no romantic designs on Noumea - his only true love is Mystra.
    • Later, Noumea tells Evendur that the Magister has asked her to be his apprentice. The two of them spend a night together, as Noumea has feelings for Evendur, but does not know when she will see him next, and does not wish to go into a life of danger with regrets at not having been with him when she had the chance.
  • 25th: By this day, Khelben is well enough to return home, even though Lady Alustriel insists that he ought to stay a while longer. He demurs, however, insisting that he will heal better in his own home.
    • Before they go, however, Lady Alustriel gives each of them a small gift: to Ahmadar, the Thaak Taalomar; to Evendur the Hierographs of Adamandar; to Glim, a bag of holding of Luirennar make; and to Ciro, a quiver of returning for his javelins.
    • Khelben returns with all of them to his tower, and retires to his chambers where he convalesces for a few days more.
    • Ciro is almost immediately swept up in the preparations for the just announced Vintners Crown barrel-tasting event.
  • 26th: Ahmadar seeks out permission to visit Demisante in the dungeons, and gains it. He visits her and tells her that he intends to speak on her behalf at her hearing, and that Khelben may petition them to permit her to commute her sentence by becoming one of his apprentices.

They remain at the docks accorded to their use the night through, welcoming those elves who would undertake the Retreat, and in the grey hours just before dawn, they set out once more, going into the west and carrying the elven people out of Faerun.
