Full Summary: After being lost for two days, the party finally solves the riddle (with a teeny bit of guidance. Props to Erindul and Nimrod for deciphering the pattern). After seeing a skull smiling at them, Xavvry and Nimrod decide to go South at the final junction, leading to them out of the Dread Forest. After about a half day’s journey, however, Lo’Grosh and Nimrod once again succumb to their old injuries, which reappear and slay them painfully. The surviving members bribe a passing merchant wagon to take them all back to Miller’s Knob. Upon arrival, the party makes it to Pella’s hovel. Pella, an aged wisened Solarian cleric, is able to resurrect Lo’Grosh. She is initially wary of raising a Terminan, but after Lo’Grosh tells her that it will bring him “One step closer to the light” she relents.
Meanwhile, Brother Kyell, sent by visions to seek a Terminan ranger, finds the party and begins observing them as they mill about town, doing errands, drinking at the Wailing Wench, trying to earn an honest living, and pillaging burned houses.
The Mayor offers a reward to anyone who can convince the nearby Krug to protect the city of Miller’s Knob.
