The group began to attack the humans keeping the wizard. The paladin tried to tank 3 humans and failed, falling several times but never dying. After a couple of rounds another human came from the woods and said “We found another one” and after seeing the fight dropped the halfling cleric on the ground and ran into battle. He was joined by one more ally and the fight was on. Lenna escaped from her restraints but was unable to be useful in combat, missing once and then being knocked unconscious again. The halfling cleric stabilized and missed the entire battle. After the party had slaughtered the humans, they took refuge in their house and discussed plans with lenna after reviving her and the cleric.
The woman introduced herself as “Lenna” and explained that she summoned the adventurers because she herself was summoned to the aid of another, Devin. She said she didn’t have many details of their quest, but instead told them to head towards the Great Chasm to find her old party who were “Attacked by undead and captured”. The party pressed for more details, but she had none. She mentioned their initial quest was to find the Lost Knights of Gardmore Abbey and mentioned 2 paladins which caused the paladin in the group to perk up. After hearing that they were loyal to Bahamut he quieted back down. After resting in the now abandoned house and getting to know each other a bit. The party head out in the morning after a fresh made meat breakfast cooked by Shivetya. Pror to leaving, they asked Lenna if she could provide any help in the quest and she gave them on potion of healing. Checking the bodies of the humans they killed, the party found a couple of flyers (one a bounty poster for Lenna, the other a Flyer with a snowflake on it which states “Evalyn is watching you, be on your best behavior”
The first day of travels was fairly quiet, the party found a sack of gold (200gp) which came with a not that said “For my dearest Karen, may this help you get through the hard times ahead”.
Day 2 was exceptionalyl uneventfully, but when they had to make camp for the night chose an uncomfortable location and lost some HP due to lack of comfort.
Day 3 got a little messy. The party was ambushed by some orcs and an ogre, but managed to fight them off. The paladin dropped a few times but was able to regain his composure and singlehandedly knocked off the Ogre’s head. After resting a little bit outside of the camp, the part investigated where the Orcs suprised them from and found an Orc baby in a crib and a human child in a cage. They checked the area for lootables first and then discussed what to do with the children. While checking out the orc child’s crib, Shivetya was bit by the Orc and shot it in the face with an arrow, killing it instantly. He found some torn up flyers matching what he had seen before and 20 gold. In addition he saw a poster showing a green roof supported by 4 beams (green, blue, black, and white) which said “Abide by the 4 Tenets, Cylar is watching”. The party reluctantly decided to try and find a location to take the baby due to the halfling Cleric’s insistence that they party not leave the child to die
While traveling, Shivetya pieced together some of the pieces to 2 additional flyers. One a black clenched fist which said “Do unto others” above the fist and “For Geralt has seen everything” below the fist.
After traveling out of the way for about 2 hours, the party came across a small hobble in the plains. In front was a young human lady tending to her herbs. After some kind talking regarding who she was and what she was doing out here, most of the party trusted her. The cleric asked if she might be able to help find a home for this child they found and handed the child to her. The druid checked out the herbs to see what she was growing, and none of them seemed dangerous at all. Shivetya mentioned something about her hair shimmering and the lady confessed that she was a dwarf who had been using illusion to cover her true nature due to people’s lack of acceptance of dwarves in the area. The Dwarf Paladin asked her for her name and when she replied with only “Olga” called her a liar who must not be a dwarf because she has no clan name. The lady, seeing the hostility in the group, responded by snapping the childs’s neck and lifted her illusion, revealing an old green hag. She was joined by 2 others and the party did not have much trouble dispensing of the old ladies and the session ended there
