Erastus 28 4710
Early, early morning of Erastus 28.
We perform a quick search of Devon and Stag Lord for potions. Devon has none and the Stag Lord has two. We aren’t able to identify them.
Oweyn and Ava will watch over Auchs and the tied up, unconscious Sneed (whom we recovered and tied up).
The rest of us proceed down into the ground after Akiros points the way.
A moldy room full of stolen loot with three arch ways leading away.
Down below, we find a ravening druid of some sort in wolverine form.
On the plaster down below is some graffiti.
We then secure and loot the facility.
We destroyed leather mask and several dozen fetishes.
We go back and get our horses and wagon and return.
We sleep for 8 hours and about noon we attempt to break our curse. It doesn’t work here. We think it’s because it isn’t the river.
We dig and bury the bodies. Say a short service.
We sort the loot and audit it and put it on the wagons and horses.
Arodus 1 through Arodus 5
Travel to Hex 1320 – Nettle’s Crossing
Over the course of that week, Kaidan shares some stories about Alexi from their youth with Ava and the group.
With a little ceremony, we throw the Stag Lord’s body into the river. After a few moments, the undead rises and addresses us and then departs. We are free of his curse. Then some water diverts and washes upon the shore. After the wave passes, there is a ranseur stuck into the ground.
We recover the ranseur.
Explore the rest of hex 1320.
Arodus 8 to Arodus 15
Travel to Hex 1216 – Temple of the Elk Lord to talk with Jhod, the Erastil Cleric. Kaiden and Ava convince Jhod to take Auchs in for now.
Arodus 16 to Arodus 20
Travel back to Oleg’s outpost.
Casten Garus is very happy to see Sneed being returned. He then has him strung up.
As a reward, he’ll arrange to have 4 master work weapons sent down. (Currently: 2 x Daggers, Light Crossbow, Greatsword)
Kedain is one year older. We liquidate some of our stock with Oleg to travel lighter and then head to Restov.
Arodus 21 to Arodus 26
Travel to Restov. We show up at the mayor’s place to inform him we have fulfilled our charter. We meet with an assistant and convey our evidence. They will need to send someone down to the Stag Lord’s fort to verify before we’ll get our reward.
We spend the evening selling.
We spend a day of downtime shopping. We each get a chance to buy one item.

Rova 9 to Rova 17
On the way through Oleg’s, Alexi get’s his 4 masterwork weapons.
Travel back to Restov. The mayor’s assistant extends an invitation to a ceremony for tomorrow. Some of us go and buy some appropriate clothing.
Rova 18, 4710 – Day of the Ceremony
This is in the same structure that the original ceremony was at.
We recognize a number of the participants from the original ceremony.
We note the presence of Varn’s group and Drelov’s group. Also, all the people that gave us our ‘side quests’.
Josef Solamis addresses us. Three groups are in attendance. The fourth group they were not able to get in time for this ceremony. Some of us get the impression that there was something he did not say.
Of those here, all the charter’s have been met with some degree of success and so the venture is over.
He will start with Drelov’s party. They mapped successfully, but they were unable to fully resolve the swamp land trade issue.
Varn’s group explored their region and pushed back some of the centaur territory. The centaur’s had been raiding into Brevoy. (The raids had been usually after some conflict from Brevoy – young Brevoy proving their manhood by raiding the centaurs.)
Our group explored our region as well tracking and exceeding what we were called to do to deal with the source of the brigands.
An aide presents to Varn, Drelov, and Kaiden and gives us each a small coffer. (It’s 5000 gp).
PARTY SPLIT: 833 gold and 34 silver
The party then get’s fully under way within mingling.
Kaiden – Josef shows up. Pleased with how we handled things. They are looking to take this further. Looking to establish a colony in the region. Based on our groups success, he would like me to lead the effort. They will give us some resources and some settlers that would like a new start. Come spring, some supplies and settler’s would be sent down. We could take the winter to review the lands and decide on where we would settle. I should check with my companions to see who is interested. Academy Graduate – an architect for planning and development.
Gilain – Has a discussion. +4 BP in the spring and additional manpower to make one extra building during first month.
Alexi – Has a discussion. +3 BP in the spring
Leana – Has a discussion. Resources will be sent down in spring. +5 BP in the spring
Oewyn – Has a discussion. +2 BP in the spring and 4 BP for constructing a shrine to Abadar. Needs to be built in first year.
Kaiden approaches his cousin and then the rest of the party about the opportunity to found the colony under Kaiden’s leadership. They all appear interested. He would like them to act as the core of a council.
Kaiden has a discussion with Quiznost Hufflegem. +4 BP in the spring
About a half hour later, Josef meets with Kaiden. What would autonomy would we have? They are not actively supervising us. It is for Brevoy’s benefit (not Restov). The other groups have been made similar offers for their regions.
Kaiden will be knighted and made a Baronet.
The three leaders are presented to the party. Phase 2 of the plan. The three of us will be knighted.
Official endowment will be after today (the knighthoods).
During the party, Ava approaches the other two groups about forming trade with. (Drelov – 20 Diplomacy; Varn – 5 Diplomacy) Drelov not interested right now. Varn expresses interest.
The fourth group has been been out of communication for about a month.
We plan to research the fix to lay the zombies to rest at the Stag Lord’s Keep. (Leana commisioned it and it is learned in one day.)
