Angiris awoke early the day after Greengrass in order to survey the common areas of Red Larch. After a quick glance around, it appeared that the merchant he had swindled out of a magical ring had already left town. Feeling it now safe to display his new treasure, he put the ring on a finger on his left hand, and returned to the tavern to have breakfast.
As the group assembled in the morning, we devised a plan to take care of the bandits plaguing travelers to the south. After a quick meeting with Harburk Tuthmarillar, the town constable, we paid a visit to Ilmeth Waelvur at the wagonworks. The party was eventually able to convince Ilmeth that it would be in his and the town's best interests to loan us out a wagon and horse for the day. We then collected a few empty crates and blankets to hide Tohrand and Mirken Goldenleaf in the wagon, and to complete our disguise as a traveling merchant.
We set out south along the Cairn Road where we believed the bandits to be operating. After a couple hours travel, we were set upon by two bandits, along with another lookout on the hillside. Mist, Thorrum, and myself turned over the cart to the bandits and slowly backed away. After a few minutes we felt safe enough to track them back to their camp. We approached the wagon containing our friends from the back side of the camp to avoid detection from the bandits. After Thorrum confirmed that our friends were still alive and well inside of the wagon, we set upon the bandits at their own camp.
Thorrum was able to put two of the bandits to sleep, which halved their numbers. I was able to catch one other bandit by surprise and took him out in one swift blow from behind. The bandits had captured a wild bear, which broke free of it's cage when the fighting broke out. During the chaos of battle, the bear attacked Tohrand and gave him a grave wound before setting it's sights on myself. Through group effort we were eventually able to subdue the bear and the other awake bandit
We tied up the two sleeping bandits and investigated their camp, finding some coinage and items that they had pillaged. Mirken also took some fur and a tooth from the downed bear, probably for some strange druidic ritual. We then returned to town and delivered the captured bandits to the constable, and returned the horse and cart to the wagonworks. I then spend the evening licking my wounds and recovering from the battle.
Our delegation still had not arrived, which was concerning but not yet worrysome. The next morning we set out to investigate this ghost that Pell had seen. Quite the exciting adventure to investigate a ghost. We happened upon a black arrow stuck into a skull in a tree. Our party members determined it to be magical, but could not determine what it's powers might be. Tohrand took the arrow, and nothing bad happened as far as I could tell.
We continued on to the location in which Pell reported seeing a ghost, where we were set upon by a goblin and some larger ogreish creature. I was attacked first and taken out, but luckily my party was able to handle the monsters and revive me. We then investigated a tunnel that we had found leading to a tomb deep underground. The ghost appeared, and we dispatched it swiftly. After further investigation, we decided to collapse the tunnel so that no one else would accidentally wander here and possibly be harmed in case any ghosts returned to this place.
