As you enter the classroom, after finishing your morning routine, you choose a seat and wait. After a few minutes, everyone has assembled and Wise Owl Thenrey Noke walks in. "Good morning, I hope you all had an uneventful night. Right down to business now. This should be an easy one to get you warmed up. There always have been stories of treasure on Thorn Island, the isle functioning as a natural breakwater for the village of Phlan’s harbor. The details differ with the teller of the tale. Many have sought the fabled riches of Sokol Keep, but nobody has ever claimed it, or at least admits to doing so. Now most believe it has been found long ago or that it is just a myth. When House Sokol assumed control of the island, they never professed having found any treasure when they restored, and later extended, the keep. And they never looked very kindly on treasure seekers intruding upon their property and stead-fastely blocked any thorough search of the keep in the century that they have been its custodian. Having been forced to mostly leave the island recently due to the troubles in the city, we now have an opportunity to investigate and ensure that nothing... dangerous is located there." He moved to one side. "In order to save time, you will be using the portals in the portal room. Since this is your first use of the portals, I will open the portal and you will all go together. Each of you will be given an enchanted ring from the armory. It will allow you to reopen the portal and return to the archive. We do not have a strong presence in Phlan, but we do have some contacts. They have secured you a small room to operate out of in The Laughing Goblin, a small tavern in the docks district with a good view of the keep." Noke looked to one corner of the room and nodded slightly, then fixed his gaze back on his attentive archivists. "Do not take anything for granted. Phlan is not Waterdeep. You will find little help from the local authorities, if any at all. Stick together. Remember your training." He paused briefly before continuing on. "You will have a few hours to prepare yourselves. Take only what you need. I will go prepare the portal. Come to the portal room in 4 hours. There you may ask any questions." With that, he abruptly walked out of the room, seemingly mumbling to himself.
