The Nentir Inn
The Inn’s common room begins to fill up with Halflings. Turns out the Swiftwater clan has a cluster of barges pulled along the edge of the Nentir River north of the city, and the Halflings come to the Nentir to get their drink-on before heading into town.
This gives the group an idea of their own, and they head into the city to see things for themselves
The Lucky Gnome Taphouse
Seeking out the most disreputable tavern in town, Jai knows just the place!
Arriving in low-town, the tavern’s reputation is well deserved. And just as the Switfwater was congregating at the Nentir, the Porters Guild is well represented at the Lucky Gnome.
Another faction is also present in force: the River Rats. This group of ruffians and rogues are Fallcrest’s very own ‘criminal element’ and are well at home in Low Town. While the Porters Guild’s strength is in the warehouse area near the southern quays, the River Rats plague the rest of the downtrodden Low Town residents with their petty crimes and intimidation.
Karnak applies his Insightful eye to the bar’s patrons and helps Jai and Rassimohn do a bit of strategic intelligence gathering . . .

– while some of the younger Porters are eager to take credit for the frakkas with Swiftwater, the older, more battle-scarred Porters are quieter on the subject. while fishing for someone who could claim to actually have been present at the attack on the Halfings, no one credible stepped forward.
– since the Porters are consumed with their feud with the Swiftwater Clan, the River Rats have become more daring.
– though some River Rats feel that Kelson isn’t doing enough to take advantage of the situation
As the drunken patrons begin to leave in packs to roam the city, Rassimohn spots one particular individual hanging back in the shadows of a dark booth. Jai recognizes the man as Marken Sandercot, the eldest son of the widow Sandercot who runs Sandercot Provisioners across the Market Green from the bar.
