Hal just sighed and wished he had a free hand to light his pipe with.

As the rest of the group carried the treasure and the former captive, Miagnik threw his arms behind his head and took a deep breath of fresh air. He then turned around to look back at the trio carrying Dwarbon.

"So earlier, you were mentioning that you had decided to hire some mercenaries and come here in order to stop the source of the Undead attacking your home in Threewillows. What sort of Undead was it?"

Day 8, 9:30 pm (turn 131)The Dungeon is in Darkness, there is no light source

As the group makes their way through the passageways that will lead them out of the palace, Maelodakh has a sudden thought about the troll and his command of the skeletons

Melodakh asks - "Speaking of gold, coins and magic - did the troll by any chance wave a magic coin in his hand to make the skeletons obey him? We found a magic coin in his nest..."

Dwarbon turns his head to the side, looking for the source of the question, and then answers

He may have held a coin in his hand. Do you still have it? I can check it for magic auras, if you haven’t already identified it.

Stephanie examined the coin for magic auras, but perhaps she didn’t share her findings with her sister…

As the group moves down the wide central passageway a tense moment presents itself.

The group comes upon a squad of goblins, some twenty strong, now wearing leather armor, decorated in spider motifs instead of the half chain you saw their kind wearing earlier. The Goblins do not act hostile, but a quiet moment passes while they look you over, and then they part down the middle and let you pass. As you pass you notice that one of them carries a tall banner pole, from it is hung a leather shield that has been painted with the outline of a large black spider.

Day 8, 10:00 pm (turn 134)It is night. The quarter moon (a waxing crescent) and cloudless sky filled with stars shed Dim Light all across the small plateau outside of the palace entrance

Once you are outside you are surprised that even though it is night, it is warmer out in the fresh night air, than in the cold dark dungeon.
Miagnik asks Dwarbon about the undead plaguing the village of Threewillows

Most nights The dwarf says softly, We were attacked by a horde of some thirty walking dead, zombies of one kind or another I suppose. They seemed to focus on a different building each time they attacked as if they were looking for something. Then, just a few weeks ago this group of mindless dead were joined by a strange woman all dressed in a drenched formal gown. She emanated an aura of intense cold and commanded the other undead through some language we did not recognize. She also brought with her a small army of skeletons, made up of all types of creatures, dwarves, some that looked like humans, and others that were too small to be dwarves or too frail to be humans or dwarves.

"Yeah, I got the coin I'll show it to you when we are clear." Rownig would have shown the coin to the dwarf. "Ev'r seen one like this before?"

"That was weird." After Windel walks through. He is super suspicious with the spider banner.

Lets roll with Stephanie scanning the coin, seeing nothing and thinking nothing of saying so to the rest of you. Also, appologies as I seem to have made this game my one last thing on the forum. I will do my best to ensure it doesn't happen again

Stephanie had been in thought as the others discussed, mind revolving over a few key points. How many of her family's retinue remained if that horrible creature had been feeding them to demons this whole time. The second question in her mind being where precisely all of the gold her companions were lugging could have come from. And lastly being what on earth she could do to defend against terrors like demons.
"Never mind the nature of the gold and its dubious history, the gold fragments on those gems are still itching at the back of my mind. What on earth could a dwarf have to do with demons in the first place, she ought to know they are only sources of corruption and chaos. Augh.. it feels like I am missing something obvious.
Stephaine breaks from her thought as a question is directed at her specifically. Whiskey barrel on the other hand stands on the treasure chest they had found giving off an aura of smug. "Yes two legged peanuts, walk faster your glorious lord demands it. Also I require mice right now!"
Stephanie sighs and mutters a dwarven curse under her nreath as she looks at her familiar. "Whiskey first of all the Word is peasant. Also don't refer to allies like that. Oh and please listen Windel, otherwise he might turn you into bird custard."
The bird in question turns to the dwarf in question hoots once and flies off. Stephaine does her best to not look insulted and gives another exasperated stare to her bird the blush on her face making it easy to detect the nature of Whiskey's response.
"You don't refer to allies as that either whiskey... Why did my familiar have to become so odd once it started talking?" the gnome half asks and half complains.

"I apologize, I was thinking on the events in the past few days and thought he might behave himself." Stephanie says as she focuses more on the outside world again. "Not that I could think of much more."


HP 37/37, AC 18/21, CMD 13, Fort +5, Ref +10, Will +6, Init +5, Per +8, Charmed Life 3/3, Panache 2/2

"Talking... right..." Hal nodded slowly.

Windel speaks softly - at least for a dwarf - to the Princess, his calm voice tries to ease the girl. "So, you've been under a lot of stress lately, sometimes it does things to people's minds. Imagining your bird talks...well, you may just need a rest. I've a Priest friend back in the city that may be able to help with the voices. You said Whiskey just started talking recently ...huh?"

We just hear hoots correct or can we actually make out what Whiskey is saying?

While Windel comforts Stephanie, Rownig shows the coin to Dwarbon.
He takes the coin in his hand and then Moralane says

We should really get to that cave we found to the west. We might want to spend the night there, and set out for, well, I suppose Threewillows, in the morning

While she talks she pushes Atherassa to start moving in that direction, while Dwarbon examines the coin

There’s no magic in it, Dwarbon says as he hands the coin back to Rownig before the rogue can lift the chest with Hall, Maelodakh and Windel once more. And then he adds, I’ve never seen a coin like it. It’s not one of ours. Maybe it’s from across the sea, what do they call that human empire again, oh I remember, Wathronne.

Atharessa says, No, Wathronne is a nation of halflings, small folk, I think you mean Burova

Yes, Dwarbon says, Yes, Burova is what it is called

yes, Windel, I am pretty sure that only Stephanie can hear her familiar in a language she understands. I am reading up on it now

Miagnik had been listening to the group talk for a bit. He glanced at the Owl remembering how vastly different that particular bird had behaved during all of their recent encounters.
"I don't know that Stephanie is imagining that Whiskey Barrel is talking to her at all. How is that crazier than anything else we've seen so far?"

He turned to address Atharessa and Dwarbon.
"Wow, you two sure know a lot about far off lands. I don't think I even know all of the different kingdom islands in the archipelago."

Oh, well there's Atharosse, Anchorosse, Dergonnan, Moritosse, and then Isla Creosse, Isla Lunthosse, and Isla Hasdran, um, what? Nobody ever asks me anything

Rownig just stops. "Well feel free t'volunteer information if you think it'll be helpful." since he stopped he takes the time to pull out another cigar, he chews the end off, then lights it. "Anyone care fer a cigar?"

Miagnik blinked at Athareesa's apparent knowledge of the Kingdom's, then nodded with Rownig's statement. "To be fair, this is one of the few times we've had time to really just talk. But like he said, if you think of something don't be afraid to say it."

He eyed the cigar and shrugged his shoulders. "Sure, why not?"

Now I can't stop imagining Rownig with a fedora and Miagnik wearing a bowler hat in a black and white background.

A sense of relief washes over the dwarf. It's been a stressful few days in the dungeon. He witnessed creatures that were previously just stories told by minstrel fireside. He looks over at Hal, and understands his trepidation. He pulls out a cigar for Miagnik and lights it with his burning cigar coal. "Enjoy...we earned 'em."
