"Mayor, we wanted to be sure we reported our discovery. I'm sure you won't mind if we take some time for rest and prayer before we move on. " said Cumarinda.

"I will see that the storage area is contained. If I must it will be burned down and a new location will be made to avoid any further Sahuagin and rat people attacking us from within." The mayor nods his head "And I will have the rest of the storage area checked as I know what we may go up against. I thank you. And of course you can rest within the tavern."

It does seem to be getting cold every hour.

As the group is talking to the mayor, it seems the barbarian is gone.

Cumarinda sighs, "Some people insist on keeping their own council. Our barbarian has left us again. I'm sure Pelor will watch over him until after we have a chance to rest and refresh ourselves."

The dwarf nods his thanks to the mayor then looks around with a stern look on his face. "First the damn rogue disappears, now the damn elf decides to take a walk!" The dwarf, clearly agitated, throws his hands up in the air. "Damn fool too stubborn fer his own good."

\He looks at Ballast and Cumarinda. "It's gettin' cold.  lets rest then leave in th' morn and find this mage."

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
Ballast shrugs. "If they do not want the storage area completely cleared, then that is fine. The mage and the crystal seem to be more important for the long-term health of the village anyway.  Brankx, if you have time in the future, this shield I found seems to have some kind of magic in it, perhaps. If you could determine its nature at some point, I would be grateful."

Ballast will stand watch over the inn while the others sleep, carving little boats to while away the hours.

Brankx nods at the warforged. "Sure can big guy.....there's some bracers I'm curious about anyway."

Brankx will idenify any items and rest up and gain spells before the trip

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
Cumarinda will heal those who have any wounds left before eating, resting and praying for her spells for the next day. She will thank Brankx for identifying the unknown magic items and for sharing the knowledge he gains from his efforts.

Two hours before they gather to continue on to seek Lars Hayton the mage who may know more about the crystals that protect the village, Cumarinda will look for any sign of Fenris if he has not returned by that time.

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
After at least a day, the mage is able to get all his spells back and cast what he needs to cast upon the items. Food, drink and sleep are all provided and they are left alone. But there is no sign of the barbarian. No one saw him at all. And its getting colder every moment. A bit of frost covers the area outside.

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
The dwarf stretched after his long night of identifying items, study and finally sleep, and though it was a busy night, he was rested enough.  He held the three items in his hand as he met the group.

"Some nice stuff here. Ballast....this shield may suit ye needs. It holds a minor magical enchantment makin' it lighter and stronger, but also helps with th' effects of cold....an' given th' weather may be useful."

He holds up the bracers. "these Offer a semblance of protection fer th' wearer. Common amongst spellcasters.  If no one objects, i would like these."

The final item, a Dark blue stone, he smiles. "Now this stone is more than a gem. It makes ye senses sharper and floats above or near ye. Never seen an Ioun stone, but heard o' their powers."

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
Cumarinda's habitual smile faltered for a moment as she addressed the remaining members of the party. "I have seen Fenris in a dream and I believe he will join us when we need him most."

She paused again her smile returning before she spoke again, "I know what we have been asked to do is for the greater good and I always welcome ideas and direction from anyone in our group. Please feel free to speak up if you think of something I haven't or that I might be doing something wrong. With that being said, are we ready to go forward and find the mage that can save this village?"

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
Ballast hefts his new shield with a nod at Cumarinda.  "Fenris is a free being, so he will do as he wills. But yes, let us go find this mage, as he seems the most important to saving this village. And you speak well for us, Healer. People trust your words."

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
The dwarf waved a hand and snorted at the healer. "Pay the pointy eared princess no heed lass...he lives fer his emotions. They mostly be anger, but i don't doubt his heart....he is a warrior, loyal to his friends" He turns, shouldering his pack as he straps the bracers on his arms, muttering. "..Somewhat think-headed fer an elf, but friend none th' less"

He looks at the woman with a smile. "I be an unusual Dwarf lass, not many claim the magical arts in my race, just like Fenris and his wild nature....but we know our places. You, me girl, have come to us as a voice o' reason and a arm against undead. Ye voice is welcome, as is ye wisdom."

Despite the dwarf's bluster, he seemed a little more cheerful this morning, if not a little tired...and this wasn't entirely from the magical items.

While studying, he went over the trip to date, how Fenris irritated him, how people left, and how his spells seemed to last only a little time (Despite being effective).

In this frustration, he felt the crumbling of a mental block....wether the need to protect his friends, or just the sheer frustration at himself, but in his spellbook, something his mentor had finally made sense.


he attained a higher level of magic.

This excited the dwarf, being able to use and test new magic spells, and this trip, if it was as half as dangerous as the rest of this island jaunt had been (Which he suspected it would), that would come all too soon

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
Once everything is said and done, the tavern is quiet. The keep grumbles as he puts some ale mugs away as the group comes down. It seems like hes the only person in the inn besides the mayor who walks in "So all set? I was able to get each of you some warmer clothing. Ad here is a map of the island, least where we have been and the location of the ruins where I think the mage is residing. There is also some areas I am not sure of but they are marked. Here and here." He points out a area close by, some distance off and another in a mountinaus region. He points out in the upper area "Misery's Peak. Few went up there, none returned. Probably the place where the dragon lurks. Top of the island."

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
When Brankx woke, he was still in a good mood after his realizations of the previous night. He came down with his pack and staff and ordered a simple warm meal.

He saw the mayor and sat at the table

Brankx, in all the excitement of what had happened since arriving, had forgotten about the dragon. He wondered on something then....could there be a link between the white dragon and the coldness if this island?

He let the thoughts slip. a thought for anothet time, he thought to himself.

He took the map, looking at the locations and nodded. "We get  decent meal then leave fer the ruins...look fer this mage. these other places we will look if need be, but he is our main goal here."

"I am ready.  Let us find this mage, and where this dragon lairs, so that this place may be free from its tyranny," Ballast says.

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
Cumarinda knelt in the open rays of sunlight, her hands clasped in silent prayer. While moments passed the sun seemed to infuse her with its light and she grew brighter and brighter until she was blinding to look at. In an instant it was over and she stood up and smiled, her face seeming even cheerier.

"The Great Sun Father has seen fit to endow me with more of his grace. Now more than every before I know we will save this village and its people. It is our will, it is the will of the people and it is Pelor's will. Now we go forth!"

Bubbly and buoyant, almost laughing, she urged the party forward on to their next destination.

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
Brankx sniffed as he shouldered his pack, wrapping his cloak tighter. "Damn me girl...ye always goin' to be so cheerful when ye god talks to ye? We are in an ice storm, tryin' to find a magic user thats in hiding. At least try not to be too happy girl."

Despite his bluster, the dwarf had a smile on his face as he walked, his darkoak staff clicking on the ground as he went

The waitress brings you over some eggs and bread as well as some tea. She nods and goes into tbe backroom. When the group is about to eat, the door gets opened. The mayor looks up from his chair as he's about to eat. Standing there is Fenris. He walks in, with two squirrels over his shoulder.

"Damn me girl...ye always goin' to be so cheerful when ye god talks to ye? We are in an ice storm, tryin' to find a magic user thats in hiding. At least try not to be too happy girl."


"My friend. Why should I be unhappy? I have been blessed even more gifts from Sun Father Pelor. I know that he has gifted me such so I can save this village and its people. For now, I am in a good place surrounded by good people. I am warm with a roof over my head and food before me in the middle of that storm you speak of. I am filled with faith and hope." she replies to Brankx.

After taking a drink of her tea she looks up to see Fenris walking in. Looking to Brankx with a grin she adds, "See, my blessings grow and bring more hope for our success."

Standing she waves over Fenris with a broad warm smile. "Come over and sit with us Fenris, there's some food here if you want to save your catch for later! Or at least have a drink to warm yourself, our mage reminds me that it is cold outside. "

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
Brankx looks at fenris with a sniff. "where'd ye disappear to?" he shrugged and ate the eggs and bread and drank the tea.

He looks at the mayor with a smile. "I hope ye don't take offence, but we will eat and be on our way...we need ter find this mage and it aint getin' any warmer out there."

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
Ballast looks at the Fenris, the squirrels, and back to Brankx.  "He left to hunt, I presume. That activity seems to be more Fenris' forte than debate."  Ballast's tone is a bit humorous, as if including himself in the jest.

Re: (IC) The Village of Korthos
The barbarian stares at the cleric, eyes narrowed. He shakes his head as if aggrivated and goes to walk out, after getting a ale to go. The mayor looks like he wants to say something but stops and glances at the others "Thought you said you eat on the way but you just ate and dranke while sitting here. Nevermind then. Do you need anything else? I do bid you good tidings and I hope the mage will be willing to return."

The dwar looked at the mayor. "Mages tent to be smart.....stubborn at time, but given to reason. I'm sure we can talk to him."

He grabs his pack, staff and waits for the others.

If all are ready, Ballast will head out in the direction of the ruins where the mage is said to be, listening to any directions needed to track down this most crucial of magicians...

Cumarinda examines her equipment. Satisfied, she gathers it together for the journey and begins heading forth on their next quest.
