A business trip to Skie’s Emporium ends up with the Fists in the middle of riot. A gigantic umberhulk is destroying the warehouse district and a combination of panic and umber hulk confusion magic has turned the bystanders into a dangerous mob.
The origin of the umber hulk is unclear. It seems to have came from inside of Maavu’s Warehouse, but no evidence of it burrowing up from underground can be found. The authorities tentatively conclude that the monster was being illegally transported and stored in the warehouse, and Mayor Vhalantru quickly authorizes greater oversight of merchant activity in Cauldron. Maavu himself was in Redgorge when the disaster happened, and hasn’t responded to an official summons.
