In the last session, several of the party members had their sleep disturbed by magical illnesses they had contracted in the dungeon. There was some thinking about possible cures and the application of magic on a first-come first-served basis. No one wanted to deal with the patriarch, Gild, and so Grim and Karaflan had to sit out naked and exposed to the winter winds to cure themselves of the green slime. Some thought was given to the health of Shifty McParty’s whores and Neliflex hired them to dance naked in the sun and snow for their health.
Some downtime was taken by the group so Neliflex could research some magic and cast some spells. Yoink went shopping and learned the economic troubles of post-war Talowdale. Glauben went out to hunt. on the hunt he encountered Lincoln and they managed to take down a small herd of elk. Fatty donated his time and expertise to the temple of Garl Glittergold and Glauben donated his elk meat.
While on the hunt Glauben learned that the local druid had become an extremist that was bent on driving the refugees out of Talowdale.
The party sought out to talk some sense into the fallen druid. They even proposed compromise and agreed with many of his fundamental environmentalist principles. Things reached an impasse when the druid began talking about open hostilities against the city. When the gnomes balked, the druid summoned an air elemental and combat was joined. A flurry of spells and countermagic ensued, culminating in Grim’s custom sweep-trip-beheading halberd combo.
