6th Sarenth (Oathday)
Noon 3rd day after the monestary was cleared
6 Gnolls kill (unpleasently) a human (Andrus of the Lions of Senara) in the battle market square as the party returns to the monestaryto shake up its membership.
Nassar Geogrill departs to seek his brother. Zak an Elf wiard from the Mwangi expanse joins the company. He is a devote follower of Nethys planning to restore the shrine near Kelmarane.
Waldo decides to sneak into the battle-market hoping to gauge the enemies strength, leaping from the roof of a nearby palace to a ledge on the third floor of the battle market he peeks inside. Gazing into the interior of the battle market, he sees empty shops, a central stage and the chief opposition sitting on three thrones on the third floor balcony. A flind (stronger gnoll variant) and a harpy sit on either side of a 7’ tall bald human? with a massive axe and and otherworldly appearance. A bunk-room with 8 beds, inhabited by gnolls is also seen before Waldo wisely retreats with his intelligence. While he was away the rest of the party encounters a gnoll patrol, the last member falling in the doorway to the battle market – close call.
Fearing pursuit the party returns to the monestary by a different route, through the pesh fields. A group of 4 gnolls, possibly following the party to lure them into a trap, also enter the fields. Dragging a bound human man with them they beat the ground, then beat a hasty retreat. The party runs over to rescue the bound figure second before the earth falls away below them revealing the gaping maw and grabbing tentacles of a dust-digger. After a difficult (and explosive) battle the battered dust digger retreats, but not before securing a meal – Avrum was devoured! The bound man Oxvard a humorless Cleric of Abadar (and member of the Lions of Senara) returns with the party, taking up residence with them and binding their wounds.
7th Sarenth (Fireday)
4th day after the monestary was cleared
Joined by a new party member – a cleric (not Oxvard), no wait its a monk, though he may be a different cleric (still not Oxvard) entirely tomorrow… the party returns to Kelmarane, but not until they deal with the monestary’s newest inhabitant – a viscous Geier (big vulturey thing). Geier eggs handed off to Hadrod to care for (and not serve as breakfast), the party set off for town.
Hyenas and a gnoll archer attack as the party approaches the gatehouse. Making quick work of the opposition the party moves on the investigate a manor house with a good view of the mill and tannery across the river.
Investigating the stables next door the party finds another member of the Lions of Senara who is also a member of the Pathfinder Society Felliped the bard hiding out. The bard provides the party some information about the inhabitants of the nearby buildings, spins some tales and generally annoys them as he follows them around for the rest of the day. The quick fall of the giant mamba gives the party enough confidence to bring the fight to the mill – the peryton is next. The mist-shrouded battle was hard fought, filled with disturbing shadows and dramatic running away. The party’s weapons unable to cut the creature deeply slowly chipped away at the flying monstrosity. Confused by the teleporting yo-yo attacks of the wizard Zak and the changing nature of the
cleric no wait monk, annoyed by the bard, assaulted by barbarian rage and ninjaclchemist steel the peryton eventually fell.
Returning to base, the party wonders what new assaults (and characters) this night will bring.
