Previously on Critical Role Edit
"The party, upon returning from their adventure in Whitestone, had a meeting with the Council of Tal'Dorei where they were able to provide information, a witness, and have the guidance of the now no-longer-charmed Sovereign Uriel Tal'Dorei to alleviate them of any wrongdoing in the Briarwoods' arrival in Emon months ago, and reinstated their membership in the Council, dropped the charges that were against them within the city of Emon, and the party have now become once again lauded and accepted within the city. At the same time Uriel, going through a bit of an emotional breakdown with his lack of leadership in this whole circumstance, it was discovered that the reason his defense was improper was because there was an individual on the actual Council who was a traitor, who had been working with the Briarwoods and was secretly a follower of Vecna, from what the documents seemed to say. However, he had fled, and the party decided to go ahead and, probably do a better job than the local guard would, find out if he was too far or not.
"They found that he was still in the city, beneath the city, and happened to correlate his current location with the Clasp, the thieves' guild of the city's current underground base, with which the party had previously had a few run-ins before. Making their way to the inn that houses one of the secret entrances to the Clasp's hideout, they encountered a band of traveling musicians, Dr. Dranzel's [Spectacular Traveling Troupe], and discovered a number of past individuals of Scanlan's performance history, as well as a few new friends, and got into an epic flute duel, which he threw, and in doing so—being a man of his word—gave the remaining gold coins in his pouch to a young gnome.
"The distraction being successful, the rest of the party snuck through the kitchen into the hatch and they had an encounter with the Clasp, after calling out to them within their own hideout, telling them that they're after this fugitive and not planning to do any terrible business within the guild, and managed to convince them to let them go about their way. Vox Machina had a showdown with the traitor, Riskel Daxio, within his cell before he supposed to be ushered out of the city, given a new name, and essentially be given free reign in the world. The party then beat him down pretty hard, and are currently dragging his bleeding unconscious [body] towards the Cloudtop District to turn him in."
Part I Edit
Interrogation of Daxio Edit
Lord Riskel Daxio, traitor to Tal'Dorei and former member of the Tal'Dorei Council, was captured by Vox Machina in "A Musician's Nostalgia" (3x14). Vox Machina brings Daxio to Sovereign Uriel Tal'Dorei III, where he is interrogated to learn more about Vecna. Sovereign Uriel sentences Daxio to immediate execution, and Grog beheads him with Craven Edge.
