The tunnels have large rat-like prints running in all directions, with the number of creatures and the age of the prints unable to be determined.

Adventure Notes[edit]

Currently: Returning with loot, Kem´s head, Thais and the gold ring to Avis Armois. Kem´s head we will give to Possa for him to collect the reward (500 gold crowns) from the Archbishop.


Current Leads:

  • Markel wishes to find a Sunken City in the Dire Fens, has a map leading to it in fact.
  • Gabriel was commanded to visit Nalencampa to the west of town. Nalencampa´s servants Brais and Amais sent the group there from the market. Nalencampa said that Gabriel and Fariya are but pawns in a wider game.
  • Fariya is investigating the murder of a Jhonian merchant to the west of town, as is Gabriel. A gold ring set with a jasper stone inscribed with Jhonian writing, was taken when the merchant's caravan was raided.
  • Deal with the uppity Necromancer who was involved with Kem, possibly with the manticore and possibly with the lizardman attack
  • For Darithe to seek Atonement, the practical option is to seek out a monastic order. One option is the Abbey of the Monks of St. Gérôme located in the village of Asala, in the foothills of the mountains to the west. Another is the Abbeys in Aven Bentois – that is the Bernardian Order, at Charbonier, dedicated to preserving and propagating the wordly knowledge that God has revealed to man.
