A gnome cartographer named Garrin joined the party. He walked into Waycombe at dusk, intrigued that it was empty. He entered the only intact building with lights on and introduced himself. Droop, the goblin, took a liking to him immediately. The party spent the night at the inn in Waycombe, splitting watch duties between the non-spellcasters.
During the first watch, Kell saw two men walking out into the field behind the inn. They started yelling toward the town, but she couldn't make out what they were saying. She woke Mist and Gunel. The men were too far away to understand. The three kept eyes on the men until the two gave up and headed back into the forest. There was no other commotion du…
Vaervenshyael stared into the room. There were three pale female dressed in antiquated clothing, sitting around two long tables drinking dark wine out of goblets. In the back of the room was a seductive tapestry. Under the tapestry was a 2 inch slit in the floor. The room slanted slightly toward the slit.
The females looked up from their cups and smiled invitingly. Vaervenshyael got straight to business. “What is this place?” The women answered with an invitation into the room.
From behind, Imultrude warned the party of nefarious emanations coming from the room. Tankred charged. Before she could react further, one of the ladies cast a s…
Brielle the Academician and Ulric the Loremaster met in a library in Waterdeep. They were both looking to access the same historical archive and soon learned of their common interests. Through research, they soon learned of long forgotten historical sites of yore and set about investigating them in person.
Early on, they hired common mercenaries to accompany them to remote sites. It didn't take long, however, before they realized the need for a trustworthy (wo)man at arms to coordinate these escapades. They did some research (naturally) and found a warrior in Candlekeep who came highly recommended: Nora.
On one of the remote explorations, the party came across a minotaur in an underground complex. After a rough initial impression, the party came to realize the minotaur was not a menace but instead a Ranger named Kolot. Brielle and Ulric were happy to offer such a unique creature a place in their exploratory band. This caused some dissention amongst the hirelings, and Nora was for…
Kaldezeit 13th: Chilly. Fires lit around Barak Varr. Less than 1 week until the 1st day of winter.
Vaervenshyael engages in a conversation with the head of the Cult of the Practicing Owl (Verena). The conversation is in regards to her party accepting the mission from the priest. The priest states the mission is of utmost secrecy. Vaervenshyael tells him in no uncertain terms that half of the party can not be depended on for secrecy. His wish is for her to bring the rest of the party to the temple so he can impart the dire need for secrecy.
The entire party heads to the temple. After a talk with Doctor Woeller, Vaervenshy…

The party followed the Verenean apprentice, Acolyte Jervais Duchez, through the clogged streets of Barak Varr and into the temple quarter. The party was concerned with lodgings, so they were shown to The Stonecutter's Thumb (Den Daumen des Steinbrechers). The proprieter was a short, old halfling woman.
Those interested enjoyed a warm bath. The party then met downstairs, where the boys started drinking all the Bugman's they could get their hands on...and for quite a hefty price.
GM: Aubentag, Kaldezeit 13, 2531
The party settles near the hearth of The Stonecutter's Thumb. The weeks of trail riding and constant alertness take…
