Blood and Honor

Episode 15 - The Promise of Everlasting Death

The Knight Commander Jack accosted the party and demanded that they give back what they stole. At first, they played dumb. Rona tried casting Charm Person but failed. At that, she went on an act of just wanting love and acceptance, and Ignis joined in. “Look, you made her cry! What kind of man does that?” However, the Knight Commander was unmoved and simply uttered, “Just kill them.” Lucky for the group, they him first. In face, that killed all of his men and looted the bodies. There was plate mail, a flail, a shield, a breastplate, a mace, and gloves along with some precious stones and an amulet.

The adventurers, now on the run, returned to Shamkell with the hopes of hiring a ship and crew. When they arrived, the townsfolk seemed more on edge than usual. Something was in the air. The group asked about a boat, but there was none to be had and nothing coming anything soon. The undead pirates had killed trade along with a demon in the woods and werewolves around. Apparently word had gotten out.

The sound of large, flapping wings beat in the distance, followed by the sound of a near deafening roar. Uddrerryg appeared in the east, soaring over the hilltops. With his rear paw, Uddrerryg grabbed a section of the roof and tore it off the ruined manor. In an aerial acrobatic roll, he launched the structure toward the center of the village. The lump landed like a catapult round in the center of town, crashing into a middle-aged woman, and killed her instantly. Traven, standing next to her, was also killed. The lump of rock and wood blasted dirt, debris, and blood over everyone in the town center. Perhaps in other, more civilized kingdoms of the world, the villagers would’ve screamed and fled, and indeed a few did. But these were Echians. They stood resolute, wielding crude clubs and farm equipment as impromptu weapons as they watched to see what happened.

“Leoric, come out and face me,” Uddrerryg growled.

The sun grew dark as if it had just set, although it still loomed at its zenith. Then the wind picked up, bringing clouds from the south at unnatural speed. In what seemed to be an instant, the undead captain blared from the manor and faced Uddrerryg, undaunted by the massive beast.

“You are a long way from home, visitor," the captain sneered.

“The same might be said for you, Leoric.”

“This isn’t your dominance, dragon. Return home. You have no business here. Or is it your family’s goal to rule the whole world?”

Uddrerryg snarled. “You know nothing of my family or my kind. My presence makes this my dominance, and that means that these humans are mine. You have no right to them or anything else you’ve taken.”

“Pompous fool! You think that because you are -”

A strike of lightning crashed down between Leoric and Uddrerryg, almost as if on cue to silence the captain. The booming sound of thunder pounded through the village, knocking loose boards and cloth against buildings. The party, Leoric, and the townsfolk, all recoiled at the flash of sound, but Leoric regained his composure.

“If you destroy me now,” said Leoric, “I’ll just come back with more forces. You may win this battle, but you will be overwhelmed.”

“Take your cronies and leave now, and I’ll spare you the embarrassment of another defeat.”

“You cannot kill us, dragon. We are the immortals of the -”

“You are a band of billions that were duped by your master. Do you know what the best part of your curse is?”

“What?” asked Leoric, snidely.

“We get the pleasure of killing you over and over again.”

Leoric drew his saber and charged, his undead minions following suit. Uddrerryg, satisfied with how easy it was to provoke the captain, smiled and readied himself for the onslaught.

Episode 14 - On The Sacrificial Altar To Success

Thelena took the party to a shady grove to meet The Keeper of the tribe Avar’Soorn. She was very old and looked like a cross between an elf and an ent. She wanted to know what our questions were. Rona started by asking about Bankiqa, the dolls, how he controlled people with them, how he made werewolves, why he was making werewolves, where he resided, what his weaknesses were.

What she said was that Bankiqa has a pocket plane of zone and fire is a weakness.

Ignis then asked about the location of the lich and his phylactery.

Woe to the admiral Amias Steph Victore, the bringer of death and harvester of souls. For he who had sold a 100 souls to the arch-demoness locked in the pillar of earth. Though she is locked away her power is still great. It was through her that the dead admiral had learned the secret of undead immortality. He had locked away his own soul in the amulet crafted from the skin of The Dream-Speaker. Such deplorable means did the admiral use and such power did it unleash upon your world. The admiral was fooled. The ritual did not only curse him, it had cursed his entire crew. Making them all twist and die in pain and torment. Their souls were all trapped in the phylactery and stored in the pillar of earth. Trapped with the demoness. Dare you open the door? Once guarded by the People of the Shield. Now left forgotten. Bound by the thrice-held lock. The beast will be released. The Warden will not be happy. The lock is waning.

Ignis posited that the lock takes the three circlets to open. So an argument ensued about which order to acquire them. That debate was never concluded, and then it was decided to go back to Shamkell to seek out the help of Keldorn once more. The party was hoping that his sway could convinced the Revered Mother to give the circlet back to the group that they took when Ignis was possessed by it.

Keldorn refused to go with the party because the town needed his aid in defense, but he would write a letter on behalf of the party.

The next stop for the party was the Ethenian Church to see Mary Helen. Rona cast Invisibility on herself and some food off a table (“the glutinous ghost”) before heading up behind Mary Helen and checking out the area. Mary Helen, not surprisingly, refused to give up the circlet. Therefore, while the party was talking, Rona found a secret door that gave way to a hidden room. Inside was the circlet, which she took, and then made her way outside of the church where some of the other party members were waiting. Rona dropped the Invisibility spell, and then poked her head into the church. “Ignis, did you call me?” she said innocently.

Ignis replied that he hadn’t, but since they were getting nowhere, it was time to go. The group then headed to see the Count, but he was very ill. Countess Belle Marcon was there though, and suddenly the party was beset by several assassins, nearly a dozen! It was a long, arduous battle, but the party was victorious once again without losing anyone. Belle had the circlet upon her head. Rona cast Suggestion to see if Belle would remove it and give it to her. Belle sternly looked at her and said, “Do not do that again.”

Ignis ran to her side and asked if she was alright. “Yes. You’re all alive; that’s fortunate for you.”

Rona cast Healing Word on her to hopefully help make amends. Belle did not know why assassins targeted her, other than she was the Count’s wife. Ignis brought up the fact that she sent the group to the village of Shamkell and that the situation there was far worse than anyone mentioned. He explained about the lich and that the party needed her circlet.She then realized that he had a circlet, and she said, “Where did you get that?!” He answered, “A goblin king.” Ignis explained that when he put the circlet on his head, he had a vision of the door. She also knew this, but she was unable to remove the circlet from her head.

“It’s been in the family for ten generations,” she said. Ignis assured her that when the group was done opening the door, it would be safely returned to her. Belle pondered for a bit and eventually said that once the group retrieved the third circlet, return to her, and then she would consider offering her assistance. For now, the only help she will provide is paying for a foreign captain if the group can locate a ship.

Episode 13 - "Morthward"

The cold was bitter and ever-present, chilling the adventurers to the bone as they headed down the mountain towards Shamkell to find Thelena. Unfortunately, a blizzard hit, and several frost giants attacked. The whipping winds and blinding snow made it very difficult to fight, but the party was victorious nonetheless.

They eventually made their way back to town, and Ignis explained to Thelena everything that happened with Uddrerryg. He asked if she would speak to the griffons about the situation, and she agreed. Therefore, they all trekked together to where the griffons were hiding, and she spoke to them in their strange language. There was some squawking and pawing at the ground, and then the griffons flew off.

A debate ensued about what to do next… scry on the phylactery? Ask about the lich? Go to the church? After much talk, it was decided to find the Seeker who is somewhere north of Cerl in the “Morth Forest”.

Episode 12 - "Always speak politely to an enraged Dragon"

About a week passed, and finally assistance arrived. Inquisitors and folks from the Ethenian Church arrived. They were welcomed and summarily asked for assistance in the matter at hand.

Keldorn, an aging inquisitor, was obviously in charge. His holy symbol didn’t match the others, and even John Anderson did not recognize it. He said The Revered Mother would not send help from Cerl, so he came from the Church of Laencaster Thessal, the home Etheniasm. Among his entourage was an investigator of the Travari named Traven Wintersong.

Keldorn was able to give a lot of information to the group regarding the undead incursion in Shamkell, particularly about Captain Leoric. Some time before this, there was a Corvenian Admiral who was sent off to fight, being the imperialists they are. The battle turned against him, and the Corvenians abandoned him. Therefore, he turned to piracy for a living. Years passed, and when he got old, a deal with a devil to turn himself into a lich in order to avoid death. Unfortunately, his whole crew was turned undead as well. Killing him and his minions has no effect; they only rise again.

In order for the adventurers to kill him for good, they have to find a way to “un-lich” him. This required finding his phylactery and destroying it. Unfortunately, Captain Leoric had an entire fleet, and the group had no idea where to find it. Keldorn stated that a boat or ship was needed for the task.

The party members asked Thelena if she knew where to find The Seeker, as this individual could be useful in locating the place of the lich’s phylactery. She said yes and that there was a problem she wanted them to solve first. There was a place where griffons lived, and they have started attacking people’s cattle. This behavior was unusual and something they had never done before. She wanted the party to find out what the cause of this was and to solve it.

The group trekked to the mountains to where the griffons lived and were attacked by massive winter wolves. By a combination of spells and might, the monsters were dispatched. After the battle, it was late afternoon. A short rest was taken in the cold, and the party moved on, eventually locating the remains of the griffon roost. There was old excrement containing goat, but the griffons had not been there in awhile. Large footprints in the area indicated movement but then then disappeared, as if from a being that could fly. Ignis said it was most likely an adolescent dragon, and due to the area, perhaps a white dragon. Traven’s owl found a cave that probably served as the dragon’s lair. Rona cast Leomund’s Tiny Hut so the group could rest comfortably prior to confronting the dragon. Ignis’ idea was to go talk to the dragon and ask it to leave the area.

The next day, Ignis went forth to talk to the dragon, who was actually a blue dragon. The rest of the party remained outside the cave. Rona cast Comprehend Languages so she could eavesdrop on their conversation. Ignis said that he was sent by his father Vanlith to check up on all the dragons of the world. The dragon said, “Well, you’ve checked up on me.” Ignis then broached the subject of the griffons.

“Yeah, I moved in, they left. They’re smart,” replied the dragon.
“Why?” Ignis asked.
“Gotta live somewhere.”

The dragon said he moved in after the griffons left. Ignis posed that if the griffons returned, would the dragon leave them alone. The dragon said, “Maybe, maybe not.” He wondered what griffons tasted like.

The dragon, whose name was Uddrerryg, popped out, looked at Ignis, and said, “How long have you been like this? Your father was a cruel man.” Ignis replied that his father had only ever showed him kindness. Uddrerryg finally consented to not bothering the griffons should they choose to return, for whatever reason they were so important to the party. However, he steadfastly refused to leave. Uddrerryg had no idea where the griffons went or where they currently lived.

That being done, the party needed to locate the griffons and convince them to return home. Since Thelena’s tribe had a connection with them, the hope was that perhaps she or one of her people could assist in communicating with the griffons and let them know that they could return to their land.

Episode 11 - Butting Heads

Although the battle continued, Keats did not pass up an opportunity to peddle his stank oil in the middle of town. The party continued to fight wave after wave of skeleton maunders, and it soon became clear that there was more than one leader. A squid-like Captain Leoric made himself known. Rona and Uri both fell in the battle, but Keats was able to revive Rona. Unfortunately, Uri was lost, and his entourage fled.

The fight finally turned, and the adventurers pushed the undead back so much so that the captain and his lieutenant retreated to a manor on the northeastern side of town.

After a much-needed rest, the group argued whether or not it was a good idea to take on the manor. There was the lieutenant and Captain Leoric plus over fourteen undead there that could be seen. It seemed like a very bad idea as they were fortified with unknown numbers, but John Anderson was firm about attacking. Rona, however, stated that she was not inclined to die, and she turned away.

It was made known to the party that Count has supposedly been drafting troops and sending them to three towns, but none of the Count’s men were present in Shamkell. Rona once again expressed her concern that they had been set up on a suicide mission. Ignis said perhaps they had joined the legions of the undead.

“Maybe Sister Helen’s Ethenian Church people could assist?” Rona asked. Indeed, the Count had sent the group to protect the village against raids from Kaeylites, not undead pirates.

Ignis wanted to find out who was responsible for turning people undead. Rona did not want to fight. Inquisitor Anderson refused to leave the town undefended even though Rona was sure the party would certainly be defeated, but he said they could win. Rona said they would die and become part of the skeleton army. The party sent messages to Cerl: to Sister Helen at the Church of Ethenia asking for assistance or insight into the matter, to Captain Liosa asking for assistance, and to Count Brendan Caridhas to let him know what is happening and to request orders.

And so they waited…

Episode 10 - Shamkell Welcomes You

The party arrived at Shamkell to find it besieged by undead instead of Kaeylite raiders. Rona grumbled once again about Belle Marcon sending them on a suicide mission to be rid of them. Zombie ogres, skeletons, and wolves attacked from the west part of the town as the villagers hid.

In the midst of the fight, a very familiar Gotha necromancer priestess caught a glimpse of the party and cursed in frustration. “You don’t know what’s going on! I’m not your enemy… This time.” Rona knew it was the same priestess from before by the mangled hand and cast Suggestion on her, succeeding. “Cooperate with me,” she said. And so Lady Gotha, as the group fondly called their non-enemy of the day, was compelled to assist in the battle.

What was so annoying and difficult about the fight was that the skeletal pirate lieutenant had an ability to inflict necrotic damage to anyone who “killed” his skeletal pirate allies. Therefore, killing them only hurt the party members more. They eventually managed to surround the lieutenant, but he gleefully stated that they couldn’t kill him. He then vanished.

Skeleton pirates continued to harass the town. They were free-thinking and seemed to want to take over the town. The fight dragged on….

Episode 9 - Women With Bad Habits

On the road back to Cerl, the party was camped around a fire telling ghost stories. After a while, there were sounds of marching off in the distance. “Is that fanfare?” John Anderson asked. “No, I don’t think so. I’ll go sneak about and find out what’s up,” replied Rona. From what she could tell the darkness, it looked like a small army marching toward the group about a half a hundred human-sized creatures; she could see their armor and weapons glinting in the moonlight. Somewhere on horseback, and as they drew closer their features became more discernible in the light of the torches they carried.

This ended up being Count Brendan Caridhas and his entourage returning to Cerl. However, the party members were unsure if he was after them for freeing Devan Eva, if he even knew. Rona tried to persuade a soldier named Collin to take the party to the Count, but she was kindly told to fuck off. Therefore, she cast Charm Person, and she made best friends with him. He then took the adventurers to the Count, and all the stuff about werewolves, demons, etc. was recounted to him so that he was forewarned prior to his arrival to Cerl. He finally allowed the party to join his convoy.

As is the adventuring party marched at the back of the convoy, Ignis’ behavior was very odd. He said nothing and stared at the nobles carriage for the entire trip back and refuse to say why. Finally, when pressed, he simply said, “Don’t worry about it.” It was as if he were in some sort of trance. Rona attempted to use Mage Hand to remove the circlet from his head, thinking that was the source of the problem, some sort of enchantment. However, this failed. Ignis got very upset at Rona about this and continued to follow the Count’s carriage, just staring at it.

Nolgrim and Rona stopped at a tavern for a drink before the group headed to the church to see the Revered Mother. Ignis refused to go with them, so Rona cast Suggestion only to have it fail. This was most disturbing, so the group proceeded to the church.

The Ethenian religion is matriarchal, so there were lots of young ladies there with bad habits (ha!). Rona, afraid to say anything in front of Ignis about wanting to remove his circlet as he was obviously quite reluctant to have it divorced from his head, slipped a note to the Revered Mother stating just that and that Ignis had not been himself since putting it on. She turned away, gestured, and very suddenly some inquisitors grabbed Ignis. A priestess approached, cast a spell on him, removed the circlet, held it up like a holy relic, and whisked it away.

Rona, a little frightened, begged to know if he was alright. The Revered Mother said that Ignis was alright now. Ignis, seemingly a big groggy, confirmed that he was alright. Rona asked what was going through his mind with that thing on his head because he was very clearly not himself whatsoever. He said that he had an overwhelming desire to keep secrets from everyone.

Ignis also said that he felt much more intelligent and knew that this circlet was part of a key to an unknown door. He could feel the presence of the other two circlets and knew their general locations: he was following one into Cerl, and the other is at sea to the east.

The party left the Church and had a hard think on the situation. Firstly, the next circlet is in possession of either the Count or his betrothed. Second, they just handed a very powerful relic to the Church that is perhaps more political than holy. Third, whoever is wearing the circlet in Cerl will undoubtedly be drawn to it in the church.

Suspiciously, the adventurers are invited to the wedding for being big damn heroes. Belle Marcon had a lovely circlet on her head. Count Brendan Caridhas offered to knight us, and most of the party accepted. Belle smiled wryly.

After the knighting and the wedding, the Count ordered the group to Shamkell because it kept getting raided by Kaeylites. Rona expressed her concern that Belle Marcon is evil and that this order was to get the party away from Cerl and maybe even dead. No one else seemed to agree.

Episode 8 - Acquiring the Circlet

The party located a trapdoor that ran beneath the road and led to the other side. It was a goblin-sized tunnel, and Nolgrim led the way, crouching. He encountered three goblins, dispatching them with ease. Everyone else followed his lead, and the tunnel opened into an area where the goblin king lived. A horrific fight broke out, but the party was victorious despite nearly losing John Anderson and Nolgrim.

The adventurers found a small bit of loot and the goblin king’s lair: a cure wounds spell scroll, a half empty file of fine perfume, a ruined but repairable ornate leather scabbard for a short sword, a silver ring, and a magical circlet. Ignis took the circlet, and Nolgrim took the goblin king’s sword.

Demons run when a good man goes to war
Night will fall and drown the sun
When a good man goes to war
Friendship dies and true love lies
Night will fall and dark will rise
When a good man goes to war
Demons run, but count the cost
The battle’s won but the child is lost

After some discussion, the party decided to take the circlet back to Cerl, more specifically the Ethenian church.

Episode 7 - You're A God and I Am Not

The party thus decided to bust Devan Eva out of jail. Devan is the notorious bandit captain of The Red Hawks, a scourge to both Baron Leolin McCelland and Count Brendan Caridhas, as they operate mainly in both Cerlihid County and Skuld Barony.

Though the nobles may label her as a rebel, a traitor or a criminal, most locals regard her as a hero. Though a bandit she may be, she is highly charismatic and a lady with an almost Robin Hood type character. She strictly orders her gang to leave the commoners, homesteaders and ranchers alone and instead only target what she regards as “the big game” – tax collectors and wealthy merchant caravans.

Devan, on multiple occasions, after robbing tax collectors who have came to collect the taxes of homesteaders, returned the tax collections of the less fortunate or struggling homesteaders after consulting the ledgers. She has even brought provisions to outsteader families. Because of her generous acts, she has become known as a folk hero and a sort-of symbol in the area that nobles can’t do anything they want and expect to get away with it.

Recently, Devan was apprehended. Currently, she is being held in a dungeon in Cerl, pending an execution. When Count Caridhas announced this, there was a public outcry to release her. It, however, fell on deaf ears.

Keats confidently and assertively took charge, and the party followed him into the jail. He announced himself as a priest there to minister last rites to a prisoner about to be executed. The rest of the group were his acolytes. Deception was achieved.

There were two inquisitors standing in the prison yard. A bit of the conversation was caught, something about they wanted Devan released into their custody instead of executed by Count Caridhas.

Various party members tried to pick the lock to no avail while Keats chanted. Finally, Ignis just burned the lock. Having a potion of invisibility among the party, it was given to Devan, and she was led out among the group. They started to leave and ran into the guard John Anderson and Inquisition Knights.

Code names had been assigned to the party members, such as “Grim-nol” for Nolgrim and “John Jacob the Elder” for Keats. “John Jacob” talked to a knight to distract him, but the knight was not interested in religion. Keats, ever the salesman, said to him, “Excuse me brother, have you heard the good news? That fresh breath is pleasing to the gods? Well I have something for you…” He tried to sell a mint for 2 gold, but the knight was not going to buy. Keats lowered the price to 5 silver, saying, “A clean mouth is akin to a clean soul, my son.” Uri, attempting to play along, said, “Have you accepted Stank Oil into your life?”

Just about the time when the party reached the jail door is when the guards realized they had been duped. Keats cast Pass Without a Trace, and the party fled to the Bandit Camp. Rona asked, “So we’re abandoning the idea of going to see the seeker Sister Mary Helen who can help us find Bankiqa?”

Ignis answered, “For now.”

Apparently the group’s priorities shifted to locating some artifact that Devan knows how to find. However, she discovered at the camp that many of her bandits had disbanded and that she was no longer in control of her people. Then this happened:

Uri: Rona, play really loud to lure in any potential party members!
Rona makes up bawdy songs about the party
Rona makes fun of herself as well as the others
Rona makes a joke about a stick up Uri’s ass that sticks out of his mouth
Jack (GM): The group applauds Rona. One of them brings her a bowl of food and demands she eats.
Rona is appreciative and continues the performance
Rona sings about politician greed and eventual uprising of the commoners
Rona tucks away the fact that Uri worships Ignis’ sister
Rona winks at Ignis

Ignis found out that Uri worships his sister Allie, who had been back in the homeland deifying herself. After a bit of a heated discussion and clearing up a misunderstanding, Uri learned that his “goddess” is truly Ignis’ sister. Therefore, Uri now worshipped Ignis as well. Rona, for fun, decided to worship Ignis as well. Ignis was embarrassed and asked Rona to stop her advances. She did not because fun is fun.

The group hit the road again and crossed paths with John Anderson and the Inquisitors. John demanded to speak to Devan, and Nolgrim bristled. He said to John that he knew John only sought the artifact of power, some circlet. Nolgrim and the others tried to convince John to join us. Rona sat down against a tree, singing, and said three will need to be killed before one would join. Ignis disagreed, saying that John would never travel with a group that killed his inquisitors.

John Anderson told the party that they were permitted to go and fetch the relic, but they must return it to the church. For such a task, John decided to join them on the journey to Mythhelm. Ignis told Nolgrim that these people, these inquisitors, killed the mother of Vancia and Varena. Not good.

Along the way, the party encountered and defeated several goblins, a goblin shaman, and a hag. The countryside was not safe…

Episode 6 - Necromance If You Want To

The party continued to the next crypt and encountered two zombies and a hooded, cloaked woman. A necromancer perhaps? Tyven dashed off after her. Others tried to follow, but the necromancer disappeared, and two undead ogres attacked attacked those who attempted to keep up with Tyven. Therefore, he was cut off from everyone else, and Tyven had to face her alone.

Rona cast Thunderwave to repel the ogres, and Keats used his magic to make them run away. The necromancer, a Gotha priestess, used Touch of Death on Tyven. What the party didn’t know was that there was a second necromancer, and she cast a fireball upon the party. Rona was unconscious, Tyven was dead, and Nolgrim was nearly killed.

Rona, quite displeased with this turn of events, proceeded to question the Gotha priestess. She was not forthcoming and actually quite aloof. Rona, unfeeling, went on to torture her and cut off two fingers of the captive witch.

Priestesss: “You’ve already killed one of Bankiqa’s servants. When he finds you, what he will do you will be far worse than anything you can do to me.”
Priestesss: “He is in a place you can’t reach.”
Priestesss: “The rivers of Echia will soon run red.”
Priestesss: “Bankiqa is only the beginning.”
Rona: “Why?”
Rona: “What is after Bankiqa?”
Priestesss: “I don’t know.”
Rona: “Tell me something useful, and I will spare your life.”
Priestesss: “Will you really let me live?”
Rona: “Yes”
Priestesss: “He is after Echia.”
Rona: “Just tell me why you are here in this place.”
Priestesss: “The deep magic is stronger here.”
Rona: “Why does Bankiqa want Echia?”
Priestesss: “Have you looked around? It’s easy picking.”
Rona: “Be gone.”

The priestess smiled and walked away. The rest of the party was not happy with Rona’s decision to let her go, and there were a few ranged attempts to kill the necromancer. They all failed.

Thelena Wintermoon, the druid, stated that the deep magic was most powerful in the Dark Wood. The ley lines crossed where the party was, right there near the crypts. Certain types of rituals could be very powerful there, including animating the dead. Thelena said there is a seeker (Sister Mary Helen) who can find the demon Bankiqa .

Just then, a group of inquisitors happened upon the party. One of them, John Anderson, spoke and asked why they traveled with scourge such as the tieflings Varena and Vancia. They defended their friends, and the group was permitted to pass.

At a bit of a crossroads, the party discussed what to do as it had a noble who owed them a favor, Nolgrim received news that his on-again off-again girlfriend was in prison, Bankiqa was a problem, and someone should be told about everything going on.

The consensus was to travel back to Cerl to seek out Sister Mary Helen and also to let Commander Liosa MacLiuthar know about everything. While there, Nolgrim could visit Devan.

At Cerl, there were festivities going on. The people were awaiting the Count bringing his betrothed to the town. Rather than go seek out Sister Mary Helen, the group then reported to Commander Liosa and told her about all the goings on to date: the demon turning people into werewolves, the necromancers, etc. It was made very clear that the Count would not care.

The last task was to ask about the bandit queen Devan Ava, who was supposed to be executed upon the arrival of Count Brendan Caridhas with his betrothed Belle Marcon. The party started to scheme to bust her out.
