After some rest in the makeshift base the group had a meeting.
Viclannan ‘Vic’ Trihorn gave us the idea of splitting up by sending Appunns “Brusla” Kningtar south to find the smugglers hide out, while he and Alistair Storm stayed in the small settlement, where Vic disguised as a guard and faked his job. Alistair went to the forest border to continue his research on nature, and had a minor victory by scaring off a wolf with a magic buff on his sword.
Appunns “Brusla” Kningtar’s dog Russlabb found a cave entry where Brusla talked with himself before the idea of echo came to his mind. He went into the cave to find some magical stones, after some brain pinching he figured out it was a teleportation circle and tried to work out its commands.
After this success he went back to the settlement as he did not figure out the last word, the destination.
Back at the settlement Viclannan ‘Vic’ Trihorn had done some ship inspection with bribes collected as a true proud guard, when one of the ship captains gave a lot more gold than anyone with the sniffles would not find interesting.
When Appunns “Brusla” Kningtar had returned he tried to slap himself to get in contact with Viclannan ‘Vic’ Trihorn, this was unsuccessful since Vic had forgotten the snake around his neck and was to deep into his stealth exercise.
Alistair Storm was in a good mood and had found more herbs to use, and started his trip back to the guardhouse, still with his sword out as he did not want to waste the magic imbued in the sword.
Viclannan ‘Vic’ Trihorn came back to the guardhouse where Brusla tried to get his dog to search for Vic, this gave him the opportunity to pull a prank, but it was not quite as good as first hoped. They went into the guardhouse and told each other about their findings and laid a plan. It hatched into robbing the captain that gave to much money in bribes, as it was a shorter distance to walk.
They left without Alistair Storm as they did not know the time he would return.
Lucky for Alistair he saw the others leave and followed them at a distance as they could be up to nothing good.
At the dock Appunns “Brusla” Kningtar started to make a lot of noise to get the attention of the captain while dressed as a guard captain, and Viclannan ‘Vic’ Trihorn snuck into the boat.
This was a great success and Brusla even got some bribes out of it.
Alistair Storm used the oppertunity to talk with the locals and found us a way over to the Iron keep in some hours.
All members of the group met up in the guardhouse to figure out what Vic had found.
Alistair Storm and Appunns “Brusla” Kningtar was not impressed by the scroll that was found, but Vic tought of it as important and read it to the group after some deep concentration as the text was almost floating out of his head while reading it.
Vi har kommet oss ned, vi får hjelp fra andre, Tarandithas er på plass
The group did not think much of this but noticed the symbol.
They wanted more information and set out a plan to get the captaint into the guardhouse.
Not a great success, they got the captain to the house but he attacked as soon as the bluffing started. They managed to beat him to unconsciousness and put him inn a cell to interrogate, the captain laughed at this and said “Fools you can not stop him, the black eye is coming!”, and died to some magical reason.
The group is now ready to take the fishing boat Alistair Storm found to Iron keep.
