Sympathy for the Baatezu
While staying at the Whirling Dervish in Westgate, the Irregulars received an invitation from the Smiling Ones to meet them in the Old City. Along the way, they stopped at the Zilchus Western Company to see if Afronidious had learned anyone else, but they found him being arrested for interfering in an investigation. As he was arrested, Afronidious told the Irregulars to look for something in the Vault. Sara left for the Old City in order to make the meeting with the Smiling Ones; Geralt and Louie went to the Spice of Life to listen to rumors; and Tristan went to the Zilchus Western Company, to investigate the Vault. The Exchequer granted Tristan access to the Vault in exchange for the Irregulars retrieving a stolen item for the ZWC. In the Vault, Tristan found a note from Afronidious asking them to continue their investigation. At the meeting with the Smiling Ones, Malaya, the sub-boss of the group, asked the Irregulars to find and kill Jirwelt, one of their members who had been turned into a vampire, and to retrieve a key in his possession. The Irregulars went to the Old City Arena, the home of the Barons of the Blade, and slew Jirwelt. After returning, Malaya explained that the stolen item they were looking for is at the Holim Ruins east of the city. There, the Irregulars met Gryinanquil, an imprisoned pit fiend, who had been betrayed by Darien. He told them how to fight the guardian of the ruins, who possessed the stolen item, and they lured out and slew the guardian. The Irregulars then returned to Westgate to give the item to the ZWC.
