We start our story in the Forgotten Realms land of Faerun, along the sword coast, in the harbor city of Waterdeep. The towering stone forms of the giant Walking Statues break the skyline, as Griffon Calvary circle overheard, protecting the city. The streets of Waterdeep are crowded with servants and citizens traversing the streets.

In the Trades Ward, a marketplace along the North Road, a Halfling by the name of Remy The Fox, sips a coffee and watches the activity on the street.   He notices a tall dark skinned blind man, moving along the street and entering a shop.   This is his mark.   A blind man, wanted dead for 100 Gold Dragons.

This human exists the shop and seems to notice the Flamboyant Halfing, and turns to walk away along the busy street. Remy springs into action to follow and get a bit more information.

Remy continues to follow Uzo through the streets of Waterdeep when he sees his chance to confront him. Instead of killing his mark, he shows Uzo the wanted poster, which reveals to Remy that Uzo is not entirely blind. Suddenly from out of the corner of his eye, Remy sees two pirate-dressed men shoot blowgun darts at Uzo. Offended, Remy offers to fight with Uzo and the two of them engage the pirates.

Remy knocks one pirate unconscious as the other takes off. Remy chases him down, catches him and knocks him out. The City Watch stops Remy and Uzo and then two of them talk their way out of trouble, showing they were attacked and only knocked the pirates out.

We discover that Uzo hides a small serpent under his garments, named Baga. Remy tries to discovery why there is a bounty on his head since there was no name on the wanted poster. The two retire to the Yawning Portal Tavern for an ale.

Andraste is a wood elf seated in the back corner observing Rukus, a human fighter and his friend Dave arguing over who is paying for drinks. Rukus introduces himself to Andraste because she seems to have an inordinate amount of food for one person. Rukus introduces himself and then helps himself. Andraste sees a halfling riding a homeless man enter the bar. The halfling bangs his head on the doorway and falls to the floor. Andraste offers healing to the hurt halfling.

All of a sudden a fight breaks out as an Orc woman challenges 4 men in black. Uzo takes up arms and hits one of the men with his crossbow. The bartender threatens the 4 men and they leave. When a deep growl from the bowels of the delapitated remnaints of the tower inside the Yawning Portal tavern. A troll with Stirges attached emerges from the hole. Uzo and Andraste take to striking the Stirges. Andraste grabs a burning lamp and throws it at the troll based on Durnam the bartneders command. Rukus lands the death blow as Durnam and Remy dodge the troll remains. 2 rounds of drinks are on the house.

A fancy Halfling man named Volothamp Geddarn, Volo to his friends, approaches the group with a request. His friend is missing and would like the adventurers to find him, Floon Blagmaar. He was last seen at the pub drinking with another man. They agree to the terms of 10 gp per and 100 more per person when Floon is found.

Remy, riding Uzo’s back, heads to the dock district to follow their first lead at the Skewered Dragon Tavern.  In the dock ward they come upon a blockaded alley with 3 dead and two black clothed men like those in the Yawning Portal are being arrested.

As they continue on to the Skewered Dragon they stumble up the Xoblob shop. It’s like a pawn shop from adventurers, except everything is a shade of violet.

Andraste is attracted to a stuffed beholder figure hanging in the window. The shopkeeper, a gnome informs Andraste that the beholder doll is not for sale and offers up a pony doll instead. Remy offers the keeper a dragon (1pg) to discuss the selling the beholder. The shopkeeper offended, asks the group to leave. Remy understanding the doll is not for sale and asks for info instead. The shopkeeper says that the doll is a representation of his boss who uses it to watch him. Remy realizes that he is in a storefront for Xanathar. The shopkeeper says for 10 gp he will give more info.

Remy spots a black pirate flag with a purple dragon skull and bones on it. He haggles for minute and they come to agree at 2 gp. Remy then introduces himself as a soon to be captain of a ship and everyone else is his crew Fox Machina. Uzo asks if the shopkeeper knows and has seen the red headed man named Floon. Xablob has, and says that two nights ago he and Renaer Neverember were jumped outside his shop by rough looking men in leather armor. One had a tattoo of a winged snake on his neck, which is a symbol of the faction, Zhentarim. They dragged Floon and Renaer away.

The episode ends as the group leaves the shop and head over to the Skewerd Dragon.
