Revolution

Eolar and Elogyn walk back to the church. It is late in the night, but there are hundreds of people in the streets trying to get to the palace, hunt down palace guards or just use the confusion in the streets to loot as much as they can. The clerics try to make their way as fast as possible but have to stop now and then to help shop owners defend their property. The insignia of St.Cuthbert are often enough to solve the problem without fight and make the thiefs run. The can only see chaos in most parts of the city.
After arriving safely at the church portal they see Chen who followed them and invite him in. Eolar is concerned about the well-being of his students and leaves Elogyn and Chen near the refectory.

On the way to the student's quarters, he runs into a worried Leofwen who brightens up as soon as she recognises Eolar. "You are alive! We thought you are all dead!" "No, we are all fine. Where are the others, is everybody ok?" "Yes, we left as soon as the fights started. The whole city went mad suddenly. We didn't know what to do!!" You made the right decision. Now go and tell the others to get some sleep. I guess it's getting interesting tomorrow" "We got orders from the high priest to stay within the church walls until further notice! What is happening out there?" "Chaos! I'm on my way to the high priest to report back, I can tell you more tomorrow"

Eolar watches Leofwen walk back. The thiefs guild overthrowing the city council to install a democratic system....they next days promise to be interesting. He has to talk to the high priest to get the churches position on that. Just as he turns round, he can see a clerk of the high priest running towards him. "Brother Eolar, brother Eolar, the high priest wants to see you immediately!"

Mendez wakes with a start. Who's making that racket?
Rolling out of bed, he pulls on his trousers and staggers to the window.
What's happened?
Did he sleep through all the action?
