-After freeing Carric from prison, The Adroit Sophists (minus Zelgius) returned to Morogov’s Ship for the night. The following morning, Sil, Mikal, Carric, and Thone traveled to Elbereth’s home and explained their predicament. They notified him of the delivery, which was currently being held up by the fact that Zelgius, the carrier of the orb was in prison. The thought of adding an orb to his collection enticed Elbereth to assist the party.
During this time, Zelgius a woke to find himself in a small room (which was almost certainly not a jail cell). Speaking to him was the brother of the man he killed in the bazaar. Challenging him, the man promised to kill Zelgius, despite the fact that Zelgius was nearly twice his weight, and 2 feet taller. With a few skillful blows Zelgius put down his attacker and escaped the building. Zelgius found himself in the northern slums of Belhamet. He set out to find his party.
With Elbereth’s help, the Adroit Sophists discover that Zelgius had been released from prison, and ‘taken care of’ by one of the guards. Luckily Elbereth was able to scry Zelgius, and determine that he was somewhere in the slums. The party spent the rest of the night and following day searching for Zelgius. After finding Zelgius, Carric immediately executed The Plan and left in search of a fabled magic weapons dealer.
Having the orb once again, the party brought it to Elbereth. Elbereth’s assistant examined the orb, but upon activating it, she was hit with a spell blast, and went blind. In payment for bringing a cursed orb, Elbereth send the party to hunt down and kill a werewolf that has been prowling the sandy sunes southeast of Belhamet. The Adroit Sophists left a message for Carric, and set out toward the location of the werewolf. Having reached a suitable campsite, the party waited for dark. Just in time, the Thone spotted Carric scrambling over one of the dunes.
After a few night watches, Mikal (partially asleep) spotted a wolf entering the camp. IT’s A TRAP. Before Mikal can attack, or even wake the party, Wolves attack from behind. An all out battle soon commences in the light of the full moon. Just moments after the party began fighting a werewolf joins the battle, and bites a few party members. Failing their saves, party members drop (like flies) into a uncontrollable anger. Infected members began attacking everything that moved. Having barely defeated the Werewolf, Thone and Carric used to two silver vials of were-cure and began healing Zelgius and Sil.
Exhausted from fighting, the party repaired camp and slept. The following morning the Sophists traveled back toward Belhamet. In the desert the party came across a battered and exhausted man. The distraught man walked toward them. As he approached, he fell to the ground and called out: “help i don’t know how i got here. I think the veil…”- his body slumped down, dead. He apeared to have died of exhaustion, and some minor wounds (as if having walked a long way possibly through a desert). After examining the man, Mikal and Carric remember him from the Lanthion (see The Four Wizards and The Crash) Although they couldn’t be certain, they believed his name was Saytol.
