As the group returned to Garenos, they soon noticed something was quite amiss. Their return was soon greeted by a set-up. Whilst visiting the [[Arcanist’s Guild]] , the group demanded to see the office of Garileth, who had gone missing in the past few days. Unwittingly, the group stpped onto a portal plate that took them to an artificial cave outside of town, where they were soon attacked by a band of vampire spawn. The party fought them off, but could not wipe out the vampires themselves. They continued to explore the cave, and found evidence that they were being observed by unknown subjects. They returned to Garenos, only to find out that Zyklas, librarian of the Arcanist’s Guild had been slain, well before they arrived in town, and had been replaced by an impostor. Neither could be found, and so, a massive investigation to find out the whereabouts of both began.
