After defeating the Giants and talking to the two dwarven brothers, Ivan and Pikel, The Adroit Sophists and Thone camped out for the night at some ruins of an old tower. Carric decided to take watch the entire night. In the morning, the party continued North toward Belhament, where they hoped to deliver The Orb to Elbereth.
Just a few hours north, the party encountered a group of bandits and their hideout. The bandits were just recently chased out of Belhamet. The party ‘took care’ of the bandits (the bandits attacked first) and a Dire Bear. The Adroit Sophists enacted their Plan when Carric attempted to gather meat from the downed bear, and Sil tried to defend the bear’s natural sanctity.
Mikal, Thone, and Zelgius continued North where they camped near a river (for the night). Carric and Sil split up in hopes of rendezvousing with the rest of the party. The following morning Sil found his way back to the party and crossed the river heading north. Carric exhausted from not sleeping for nearly 24 hours slept late and continued north toward Belhamet around noon.
After arriving in Belhamet, The Adroit Sophists executed their plan again, agreeing to meet at a tavern in the evening.
Mikal notified his party that he would be at the bookstore. After he was safely out of view, he found his way the nearest tavern ’Morogov’s Boat’, where he got drunk and promised to perform a show that night.
Sil decided to wander the streets of Belhamet to kill time.
Carric having found his way to the city of Belhamet when in search of a magical weapons shop.
Zelgius followed Thone to a magical shop. Thone, unimpressed by the dusty and empty shelves, decided that he would wander toward a tavern where he would wait for the party. As Zelgius left the shop he literally ran into Carric. The two of them set out to find a weapons dealer at the town’s market.
Long story short:
Mikal, Sil, Thone meet up at Morogov’s Ship. Mikal performs a great musical show for the patrons. Mikal and Sil got drunk while celebrating. They stayed the night at the tavern’s rooms.
Zelgius and Carric ended up starting a massive brawl in a crowded market place. Zelgius ended up accidentally killing a man’s brother, and Carric attacked a Town Guard. Both were thrown in jail after the brawl. The following day, Sil and Thone investigated Faysha, and her infected son (werewolf). Mikal found his way to Carric and Zelgius in jail. Mikal was able to convince the guards that Carric’s actions were a mistake. (Carric’s previous argument had been the following:
Guard:“You stabbed and shot one of the town guards.”
Carric:“I didn’t stab Him!”
G:“you did, when he tried to run away”
C:“No, that was before he tried to run away.” “I didn’t shoot him either”
G: “THERE WERE SEVENTY WITNESSES!!” )
After Mikal secured Carric’s release, there was nothing he could do for Zelgius, who murdered a townsperson in front of 70 witnesses. This made an interesting plot twist, as Zelgius was carrying the orb that the party needed to deliver to Elbereth.
