    Highmark Disaster:

    Melech Damakos - Tiefling wizard originally form Mythragal, investigating the magic and rituals that went into creating the Doom of Nachtur to see if the area could be stabilized and made habitable. May have had ties to: Tiefling groups in Mythragal interested in restoring the city, Goblinoid rights activist Ryulin Maldred (rumoured not to have gotten along), Warforged rights activist Spire.

    Sorrow Markata - Tiefling magic dealer from Mythragal, niece of Damakos. Helped acquire an artifact involved in the Doom of Nachtur out of the vaults of the Church of Moradin in Mythragal, and delivered it to her uncle via the Dead Rats (couriers with questionable ethics). The artifact was likely a fake, and its use caused the explosion that ripped open an explosive portal to the Elemental Chaos. She, along with Sir Dhenirigan Crane and members of the Dead Rats (wererats)have left Nerath and are in hiding, possibly somewhere in Ahkas.

    The churches of Highmark and Moradin were involved in the original ritual and both have been seen to be involved to some extent in the investigation and ongoing research. Forces from the Church of Moradin originally captured Sorrow Makarta.

    Cult Activity:
    Cultic activity and civic unrast have been high throughout Nerath recently.

    The Cult of Kossuth outside of Thanatopolis has been organizing other demonic and primordial cults (including a cult of Dagon from the Thanatopolitan peninsualar coast and an Orcus cult that may be the one wiped out by the Thunderbolts between Grimfar and Highmark) to cause localized problems and disruptions to trade live and livelihood. The Juiblex cult leader gave the name of their leader, Rietta Amnon, as his contact for acquiring alchemical reagents. She has also been recruiting Baphomet and Yeenoghu followers form Morro. They seek an end to the Nerathi Confederacy and to civilization in general.

    This cult has also been encountered by Thunderbolts in Thanatopolis, and raiding territory outside Highmark.

    Nachtur:
    Ryulin Maldred has been seeking out members of the lost houses of Nachtur, specifically those with dragonmarks (including Hwalna form the Pak) as part of some plan to restore the city and help it become independent from nerath. It is unknown how this may tie in to things more broadly, other than that it ties in with the theme of stirring up unrest and discontent within the empire.

    Sentinel Houses:

    House Himrall has been investigating the Thunderbolts, initially thinking they may have been involved in the investigations into Nachtur and possibly responsible for the explosion. They sought/seek to continue related research to see if the ritual could be recreated and used as a weapon.

    House Machel was also involved in investigating the Highmark Disaster, but it isn't currently know what they make if the affair.

    House Uthyr has ties to the Church of Ioune in Mythragal and may be involved in them, to the extent that the church is involved.

    Not mentioned above we do know about cult contacts with Baphomet and Yeenoghu from Morro operating down Yondon way, and learned about then from the Juiblex guy.

    Got a list of culty contacts from The Tiefling Quartermaster after threats.

    Big ones in Thanatopolis (although there are others):
    Pazuzu
    Graz'zt
    Oublivae
    Betrayal, Destruction and Corruption

    Also got contact information and systems, and some names and locations for meetups.

    Learned about a Geyr Hextor cult *in* Highmark, and one that moves around in the Wilderness.

    In the Elemental Chaos - Demon Lords and Primordials gathering troops for...something, and have been raiding to release tension D: D: D: - possibly massing for an attack into the material plane? (Nerath?)

    Also, Tasane is the name of the phoelarch woman who is somehow in league with the Geyr Hextor and in contact with Kobikan (Kallista's dad). She has minions of her own in the EC, and contacts all over the place there. She also have two forms with their own hit points and is very hard to kill. But she was willing to trade Tzesira's life for her own, so is less crazy than many of the cult-folks who would rather die than relent ;p

    Other things to note then - despite the difficulty, the cult has good reliable contact with the EC and has the capability of sending people there, and possibly sending them back *through*.

    The Geyr Hextor *is* in Huighmark, reaching out to the disenfranchised to try and pull off major plots like blowing up parliament. There may be multiple cells.

    They were working with groups (or individuals that they organized?) of Warforged, and imbued one named Abandon with ritual magic (like a scroll) that was supposed to destroy the building, killing lots of people.

    The have also been working with some more violently-inclined goblinoid homeland reclamation groups (and also some goblinoid vampires, including Nix) and have reached out to the city Kobolds as well, the latter with apparently mixed results.

    They use these people to carry out their work - acquiring components for rituals, and carrying out the actual dirty work, keeping themselves behind the scenes as much as possible.

    We now know more about some of these groups and some of the areas they have been working out of. House Machel knows about this as well and is keeping an eye on things to some extent as well.

    There is a cleric of Ioune who was in Thantopolis during the riot and observed a pattern of energy indicative of some ritual manipulation of psychic energy of some sort that may have been related to the riots - the implication is that ritual magic was used to cause or aggravate them.

    She observed something similar here, and noted that there is some residual effect on the auras of those who were present in Thantopolis during the riots, but wasn't sure what that meant.

    This would include Brenn and all the Thunderbolts except Vedran.
