Don't worry, I've been pretty wrapped up too. Will be free from Tuesday though.
Surface Raid Interest Check:
Word has reached some deep corners of the Menzo that an ex-priestess, a traitor of Lolth and a "redeemed" drow who had abandoned the Underdark some years ago, has come to some fortune and fame in the surface world for her exalted deeds of valour in various adventures. She has so impressed her fairer brethren on the surface, in fact, that she has been made a High Priestess of Eilistraee and - along with her charm and beauty - has recently and controversially become engaged to the prince of a small Sun Elven city.
As the news has neither been well-publicised nor substantiated, the Council and the Church have so far ignored the undercurrent of rumours. The Matrons of Illafin, however, are either furious, gleeful, or scared - it's hard to tell which, but there has been a definite tension to their telepathic administration of the House in the past weeks. So it wasn't too much of a surprise that they have begun preparations for a surface expedition; and while ostensibly justified as a voluntary reconnaissance mission to the Council, their orders in the House have a different tone. This royal wedding must be stopped - at any cost.
