The Drow patrol wanders right among the spread out party, from the front and back the 2 Drow males are dispatched quickly. These two Drow had nice grey cloaks on and more NOQUAR horse head pins. What loot can be gathered from their bodies is tossed in the portable hole, the bodies are moved to the latrine and thrown into the pit toilet, something may be moving down in the pit toilet, better not think about it.
Tiberious ritualistic removal of a Drow ear from each one that he had a hand in killing had not really bothered most of the party, their Chaotic or nuetral nature not generally opposed to his gristly trophy hunting.
The party finds another storeroom, the general layout of this complex is that of a “ladder” where the rungs and sides are hallways with the space between “rungs” are rooms.
Two more Drow are coming down the hallway, they are males and dressed similar to the first two. Tiberious sets an ambush and these two are quickly subdued and tied up, moved into one of the storerooms for interrogation
Tiberious is at the head of the interrogation, intimidation and occasionally letting Vinny use his smarmy charisma on them in a Good Cop Bad Cop type of work. “What house do you serve?” Tiberious threatens the Drow who look puzzled. After several minutes of betterment and threats Tiberious seems to have a good idea about the set up of this place.
1-Outcast male Drow and outcast Grey Dwarves (Duergar), have been set up in this area for some time.
2-The area is a small settlement, which functions on trading and entertainment (whorehouse and betting on fighting in the arena)
3-They aren’t allied with any larger settlement or house. They operate as a small independent collective
Tiberious then turns is attention to questions about Sterrcus. Sterccus had invited Kvothe to come here with a note, but Sterccus had not been seen since the encouter in the Lost Temple many weeks ago. Tiberious Learns that.
1-The original outpost was little more than a rabble of Drow and Dwarves clumped together for protection. They burrowed caves into the rock tower.
2-Sterccus showed up and provided leadership. Organized building of the wall and adding structures. Now they live in the homes/town aroudn the tower.
3-Sterccus lives in the mansion on the other side of the tower of rock
4-Under Sterccus leadership the collective has thrived especially in the last few years.
