Late Summer 506
We gathered up some of the things we had found and made our way up the ladder. Hilo was bringing back one of the tower shields.. well, or at least was going to use it like one. Our host was happy to see us again, but was more than ready to leave before it got fully dark. We departed from that evil place only to find ourselves surrounded by those corrupt deer. After trying to pass through them both Slavomir and Fulframent called for a retreat – and it was just in time. several started to charge us and we all returned to the small entrance to the evil hole. Hilo guarded the door while a few of the deep butted and bashed into it, testing our defenses before giving up. They must be waiting for us to come out, so we made camp for the night inside the abandoned location.
I apologized to Slavomir for all of this, but he seemed to be taking it in stride, making it a point of pride that he would be the first of his people to make it out alive if we made it back.
With the new found time on our hands everyone tried to busy themselves. Hilo read the chemistry tomes that we had found, Olloth did… his usual poking around at magical things. I suppose Kral went around doing something that no one saw and we never realized it. I really should keep a better eye on him. Fulframent started training his little blue bird I believe, I wouldn’t be too surprised if he was a little upset over sending the other one to die in the mist.
We all tried to sleep, and occasionally one of us would climb up to see if it was daytime yet. When it finally was we set of, the tainted deer no longer in large numbers around the entrance to that damned place.
We quickly made our way to the hunting lodge where we ran into Slavomir’s people who were waiting for us. They were relieved to see us all and ecstatic to hear that we had lead the way to the purification of Jakob island. We started to head back to the village when one of the men told us that there was a guest who wanted to see us, from off of the island, and he knew our names. Our uplifted spirits were brought crashing to the ground. No one could tell us his name, or anything else other than he wore robes.
[Will finish on friday[ (NO YOU DIDN’T!)
The group met with Miroslav Adamek, a church inquisitor who Hilo Vruk decided to tell absolutely everything to. Inquisitor Adamek essentially employed the group on behalf of the church to help with the threat of “DC” and “New-Life” as the group actually seemed to have more direct experience than the church. After some extensive conversations and a later meeting back in Pevnost the group was given a official inquisition symbol to prove they are working on his behalf. As the inquisitor was leaving he gave them a copy of “Prieur’s Log” (see items section, don’t know how to link to items here…)
