With the undead threat in the basement destroyed and the basement thoroughly searched the party finally had time to relax. The group finally had a chance to talk with Marzena. They found out that there has been an increasing number of worm related undead attacks in the Blackstone area. This was one of the reasons Marzena was assigned to Blackstone Keep. She further confirms that the creatures in the basement were called Spawns of Kyuss and that Kyuss was an ancient being that spent his mortal life creating a variety of different kinds of undead.
The next day Allustan returned with forty solider from the garrison in Diamond Lake. The adventures told him what had transpired while he was gone. Appius went to the haversack and to retrieved the dragon egg and show Allustan hoping maybe he could identify what type of egg it was. Reaching into the sack and pulled out the egg. Instead of pulling out an egg his hands and arms were covered little green worms in a panic Appius yelled for someone to burn the worms and himself he didn’t care. Allustan released a burning hands spell frying the worms and Appius as well. Appius healed himself and spent the next hour carefully emptying the haversack of all the worms. Allustan listened to the adventures tales and thought that there was something going on with the increase in the number of undead, the Ebon Triad, and the Dragon Ilthane. Allustan and Marzena decided it was time to ask someone who might know or be able to discover more information concerning the growing threat. That person was Eligos and he lived in the Free City. The group decided to leave the next morning and head to the Free City.
On the travels to the Free City the group encounter a group of halfling farmers. They were returning from the city where they were selling some of the “product”. The asked if anyone was interested in some homegrown pipe weed. Miles purchased a small supply and the group bid the halflings a good day. As they got closer to the Free City they encounter more and more local. Some were farmers bring supplies into town other were traders loaded with goods heading to other towns.
The bad news was that there was a huge line of people waiting to get into the city. After an hour the group the adventures made it to the front of the line. The guards looked at the group with some suspicion. They were warned that it is highly unadvised to walk around the city fully armored and carrying their weapons. They also gave a quick search of some of the items and equipment the group had with them. It was at this time they found Miles newly acquired bag of pipe weed. They explained there was a tariff on anyone bringing medical herbs including pipe weed. Miles begrudgingly handed the pipe weed over to the guards who seemed very happy and sent the adventures on their way.
Once in town each of the adventures had things they wanted to do. First Appius convince the group to go to the Church of Ixion and maybe he could get them free lodging. The group went along. Appius met with several of the clerics of Ixion and he could get himself free lodging, but for the group they could get a reduced rate at a inn in the religious part of town. They accepted the offer and got a couple of room. Sandreus asked to sing that night, but the inn explained they didn’t do music at night. Miles and Crag went longing for some companionship for the night. After asking a few question and getting directions they found an upscale place. Miles picked four ladies for forty gold for the night and Crag the dwarf picked two ladies for forty gold for the night. During the early hours of the morning Crag and Miles returned back to the inn with a satisfying smile on their faces.
