Us adventurers introduced ourselves to the newcomer, Beathan Baird, a 19 year old with a bear cub. His parents were killed by the orcs. As night fell, we created a pyre for the bodies and said our goodbyes to Greg. In the middle of the night while resting, Boram heared a beautiful haunting melody coming from outside the town. Gus woke me and I heard it. Boram and I started walking toward the mists at the stream. Tai Li woke and started coming after us, but she was not transfixed by the melody. Boram snapped out of it. I walked into the water while Darren, Tai Li, and Boram were at the shore. Tai Li entered the water and started attacking the harpy that was creating the melody. The harpy flew away before it could take me with it.
We finished resting and when we woke in the morning, the weather had cleared. We headed east and ended up getting to a boggy area. While trying to go from dry patch to dry patch, Tai Li fell in the mud and went under. I threw the rope in the muddy water and she grabbed it so I could pull her out. While trying to pull her out, we saw a crocodile in the water coming toward her. We killed the crocodile, then jumped to the next patch of land. We kept moving until we were ready to camp and dry off. During the night, the temperature started to drop and it started snowing. During the night, Darren and Tai Li saw lights to the north-west and we all decided to go and investigate. We found en encampment of elves, so we introduced ourselves and asked to camp with them. The leader, Aramil Olandiell, told us that they were hunting the giant that we had hid from and that it was Bohemoth Deronsh, Son of Akrosh, a dragon and titan. We told them about the orcs in Rorikstead and they started speaking amongst themselves in Sylvan. When they realized Neil could speak Sylvan, they quieted. We slept for the night, but when we awoke, the elves and gryphons were gone. We traveled for a uneventful day and made camp. The next day, which was the last day before we arrived at Elith, we started to see farms and homesteads. We found the trail used as a road to the city and followed it. We came to a stream with a broken bridge. An old man, Daniel, and his shaggy dog came up to us and introduced himself. I went over to give the dog some love and realized that this dog had the same collar as the dead dog we found in the tower. I gave Daniel Kita’s collar and told him what happened to her. He told us that goblins had taken her and asked us to find the goblins and kill them.
We continued down the road and it started to drizzle. We saw a sign to Elith 10 miles. It started to rain and we decided to keep going even after dark. We went through a village and when we approached the city, we saw a barricade with 2 guards. They told us that this part of the city was quarantined from a flesh eating disease, so we traveled through the south gates. Ambassador McNeil tells us about the different inns. Tai Li, Boram, and I went to the Smoke Stack while the others went to the Velvet Violet, a burlesque house. Tai Li and Boram got food while I went to my room. On the way back, I was stopped by a man with a dagger. He told me that I had to go with him because there was a reward for me. I went with him and 3 others up the stairs. Tai Li and Boram were almost mesmerized by belly dancers and didn’t notice me leave. They realized something was wrong and started up the stairs. The men told me to go out the window, but I tried to stall them. The main guy tried to push me out the window and instead fell out the window himself. Boram and Tai Li came up the stairs and we all fought the other men. They withdrew and jumped out the window. We decided to go back to our food, but when we got there, 2 men were still there. One was drunk and the other left while we were turned away. We finished eating and went to bed.
In the morning, I saw a wagon out front with the main guy with the mohawk and Darren tied up and blindfolded. They had kidnapped him to get me to go with them. Boram and I went out the front door while Tai Li went out the window to sneak around. She took out one man in the front and left the drunk one passed out. I slept mohawk guy and then his companion stabbed Darren in the leg. The half orc that disappeared the night before, snuck up behind Boram and dazed him. He then took him inside the inn. I intimidated the guy stabbing Darren and made him get out and shackle himself to the wagon. I then went inside to help Boram. Tai Li took care of the mohawk guy that was asleep, stabilized Darren, then came inside. We fought the half orc while Darren slowly made his way inside to help. We killed the half orc and healed up.
