The party finishes recovering in Caford on November 24.
November 24 – November 26: Realizing that there was probably more to the necromancer’s presence, Tanin convinces everyone to return to the fort. They find that it has been claimed by Ostmark, but also find the Mana Fountain, bathe in its power, and Tanin creates a portal to Pale.
November 26 to November 28: In Pale the party takes care of some business, including Brother Olaf’s robbery of the tower supply closet.
November 28 to Dezember 3: The group hires a boat to Ostmark; Lothar negotiates a better rate. On the boat Riffin is challenged by the crew’s best swordsman. He wins the duel. Lothar finds a similar match and wins. The crew convinces Riffin and Lothar to duel and Lothar narrowly wins.
Dezember 3 to Dezember 10: After much debate as to the best way to create profit from the wine found in the crypt, it is sold for a hefty sum.
Dezember 11: The party is caught sneaking into Castle Ostmark and put in the dungeon. After escaping the dungeon they find the dog which has been linked to the king and it leads them to the king’s chambers. The king and dog want the dog dead. Hilicia speaks to Brother Olaf and tells him that she wants to do it because the bond between them is a profane thing. Brother Olaf uses Hilicia’s Heart to kill the dog. The king leads the party to the wizard’s chambers. On the way he gathers up some guards who kill others.
Brother Olaf nearly kills the wizard, but stabilizes him so Galanis can heal him. Then, after a tedious conversation, Lothar kills the wizard for real.
Dezember 12 to Januar 11: The party finds people who can represent the common folk to help the king form a House of Commons.
Brother Olaf decides it is time for him to focus on his position in the thieves guild and retires from adventuring… for now.
