Days 6-8 were devoted mainly to recovering from the effects of Filth Fever. However, while Pikacu, Ama and Panthera were recovering, our other heroes were not idle. They celebrated a bit in the remains of the Harvest Festival, sold off as much of their loot as they could manage, had their potions identified and Toox both acquired the ingredients necessary to perform the Find Familiar ritual and performed the ritual. We now count Indigo the fire lizard among the roster of the valorous.
After 3 days, our sick heroes were recovered enough to travel to the capital city of Clearwater to deliver the onyx to King Selvin. However, Pikacu appears to have developed an aberrant dragonmark on his back. It’s large, like a syberis mark, but still unusual in that he has never before manifested any dragonmarks.
After a 3-day journey to Clearwater, our intrepid heroes were greeted by the king and granted audience. They handed over the onyx and proceeded to pester the busy king with all kinds of annoying questions. His patience wore thin and he eventually dismissed the group, who were (mostly) gifted with fine horses from the king’s personal stable.
And that’s where we left off… Our band of brethren are out and about in the big city, many for the first time, awaiting further adventure.
