"Interesting... Perhaps it was not the true Maximus I spoke with, but the channeled words of the priests perverting his wishes...."

While conversing, Vassarious pulls out the reference materials they brought with them and searches for the 'Caverns of Calthyone'

The caverns of Calthyone are not well known, but a search pulls them up. They're near one of the temple portals connecting Arthus with Lithus, on the Lithian side of the portal. That portal is currently a beach-head for imperial forces, and quite an active war-zone. There are many entrances, and the caves are a near labyrinth. Parts of them are open, but parts were closed to the public for years.

I'm not sure who was to respond next. Anyway:
"Maybe you could try and confuse the priests by having two Maximuses (Maximi?) If they can find out which is which without anything complicated, then clearly they're all in on it. Then again it'd probably result in death or capture. Maybe this is all an elaborate trick to make it look like the priests are guilty..."

"I'm afraid that seems terribly dangerous... Based on the hostility brewing with the priests, the dream of the man you encountered, and my brief contact with He-who-would-be-Maximus, I am inclined against trusting the clergy."

Vassarious checks the reference materials for experts on the caves... there might be a suitable guide who had an idea of what they are looking for.

In Peacetime there would be a warden who took care of the caves, but you're not sure who that is or what they're doing now that the war is on. You can find where their old office is though.

Vassarious locates the office, and then does some searching for information on the capitol and tries to locate the offices of Moratus Ingelni (governor of Monstri) and determine the best way to contact him directly (Maybe they can Hack his way into a personal channel or phone number using tradecraft).

Continuing the conversation...

"If you will attempt to open a channel of communication with the deposed priests, I will continue on to the capitol to share my impressions with Moratus Ingelni. He may be willing to assist or bring his own resources to bear and start his own investigation. Then we could rendevous at the caves to follow our only real lead."

"I guess it's a plan. Hopefully we can meet there; not sure if you're going to have trouble entering a war zone..."

So this makes three long tasks?
1) Memetic persuasion of Rubrum
2) Investigating whether there are any leaks in HQ
3) Inquire about the deposed priests

How will Halcyone go about looking for deposed priests?
