[After an emergency Teleport The Book&Blade escape to a burning Waterdeep that is being invaded]
The Scorching of Waterdeep
On a street choked with the smoke and acrid stench of a great city burning the Book and Blade appeared. Brought there as they were by the untested magics of a Tymoran priests first attempt at teleportation it is understandable that what they first noticed was not the deep cloak of smoke turned bright orange by the nearby flames or the cinders falling all around them. A hard road teaches those who travel it to pick up on certain important sounds. These sounds you eventually learn to hear to the exclusion of others when faced with the unknown. The sounds of screaming people, desperate and horrified, cut through the mind haze of the teleportation spell faster than anything else.
