After the Mohrg encounter, Gremalkin decided he really needed to finish some of his personal projects to make him less vulnerable. Instead of trying to catch up to the already left party, he began searching local apothecaries and libraries for books, herbs, poisons, and exercise locations.
Faeron and Faydra
When Faeron and Faydra arrived at Vigil’s gate, they were met by Tristram Reis. He insisted on going with them, as he felt that even with their amazing talents, two people were not enough to travel the road to Caliphas alone.
It wasn’t long before he was proved right. Halfway through the first night, they were attacked by a group of ghoul bandits. Unlike is prior blunders, Tristram held himself well. They destroyed all the ghouls, including the rather sneaky one who’d attempted to escape via The Path River. Faydra used a lightning bolt spell to finish him. However, Faeron and Tristram were both in the water at the time. All survived, but after Faydra returned to her tent, Faeron and Tristram decided a late start the next day would be safer for all involved. Especially if it improved Faydra’s mood.
Martuph and Tessara Ilverazto
Martuph woke to his door opening. The woman who’d captured him, and tortured him for the last two days entered with a plate of food. Bread and meat, but when they were set in front of Martuph his stomach started to turn. Everything was old and spoiled. Tessara offered to feed him. “I realized that I haven’t been good to you. You need to eat now.”
The bread was only stale and hard. Martuph kept it down while she asked him questions.
