The Palace in Lubeck

October 7, 1650

After five passages through the dimensional door, the party arrives in Eastern Europe. Eventually they travel back to Lubeck, where Hornung informs them that his armies were victorious over the Archbishop. Ahmet is presented with a jeweled Mameluke sword with a metal scabbard inlaid with leather. It is the sword that Ahmed Kemaleddin, better known as Kemel Reis, exchanged with the Doge of Venice in 1503, as a sign of peace between the Ottomans and the Venetians. It is named Dilmek, and had come into the Archbishop's possession. Hornung feels now that the weapon should return to the Turks, with his blessing. (Scimitar +1) The group also is presented with 2,000 g.p., and with a box containing a parchment tied with a ribbon; a ring; a chain and a small medallion. The ring is carved in the shape of a stamp; the medallion and it both have the same symbol, that of a nine-ray star. The chain is really three chains entwined, and designed to be worn with the medallion. The document, when unrolled and read by Lukas, is the deed to the isles of Upper and Lower Koufonisi. Hornung is quick to point out that this land does not confer any title - but it does give the right for the members of the party to tax the 288 residents, all of whom dwell upon Upper Koufonisi, almost all in the village of Chora on the southwest corner of that island. Together, the islands are called "Koufonisia," and are within the realm of Venetia, near the coast and within the authority of Naxos, among the Cyclades islands of Greece.
