Invaded ruins inhabited by goblins and completely wiped them out. Even the ones that ran away and hid hoping that they would eventually get to return home.
In some goblin bedding is found a rusty sword and a mysterious amulet.
Beneath the ruins they find a large natural cave. In the cave was a fresh water source, a large hive of large bees, and a very flat circle in the natural stone floor. As they stood over the circle trying to figure it out Thunder became frustrated with all the unsubstantiatable theories and finally just whaled on it with his hammer, much to Ray and Elaiden’s surprise.
This allowed Elaiden to find a small glint of metal beneath the stone which when dug up turned out to be a sword! Also within the stone was a box of metal disks and a ring.
Upon returning to BriarStone they find that a lot more time had passed than they realized. Best guess, their time in the Fey realm passed differently than “the real world.”
They also had a message from the baron waiting for them. The baron and the chancellor were ready to send wagons when they got word back saying things were ready.
Shepherds did not return with their sheep. The party were the only ones around to investigate. They found shepherds Talera and Aldra; they found Aldra hanging upside down with her broken foot wedged into the rocks above her and Talera beneath her holding her up to keep her weight off the foot.
As they were getting Aldra down Talera was exclaiming about the witch. Someone needed to get the witch to heal her.
The party chose to heal her then go search for the witch. They swore the girls to secrecy.
They questioned Adem as he was a frequent customer of the witch’s. Adem told them to follow the stream until it turned into swamp and they would find a cave nearby where The Swamp Witch, Ashell, lives. Adem likes her. She has been very kind to him.
The next morning they went and found Ashell and found out that she makes healing potions. And that she served in the war and survived but not exactly well.
She asked them to get more of the plant that she makes the potions out of because she couldn’t get to where they were.
The wading out into deeper water led them to see things that Ashell had likely never been able to see. Father down the cliff wall that Ashell’s small cave was in was another much larger and definitely carved entrance way with stairs leading up to it out of the water.
They went in to have a look. They found a place where it looked like the dead were interred but before they could explore DEATH came into the structure behind them.
