After a couple days of downtime, a courier arrived with a summons from the Archemage.
On their way to Slade's office, they come across Veit, Aradel, and Cogo.
As the party entered the Archemage's office, he quickly began to explain to them that after much digging, he was able to get some insight into who the thieves were and what they might be after. The thieves were members of a cult calling themselves The Cult of Dark Salvation and that the tome that was stolen was a spell book containing ancient rituals for summoning the Goddess of Attris. Apparently this cult had been around since ancient times and there were references to their existence all the way back to the beginning of recorded history. The cult worshiped the goddess Attris and performed numerous evil deeds in her name.
Unfortunately, Slade was not able to determine the location of their base. He requested that the party search for their whereabouts and report on any information they come by.
As soon as Slade made his request, a messenger hurried in and informed everyone that the surveyors at the Ruins of Kuphis had turned up something nasty.
Slade suggested that the party start their search there.
