[click, TV static] [groovy Critical Role theme] MATT: Welcome again, every body. Final we left off,The Mighty Nein, who had received two new allies in Keg, the dwarven fighter, and Nila, the firbolgdruid, had made their approach to town of Shadycreek Run. After making your manner through thetown, spending an evening staying on the Landlocked woman, and getting some informationabout where to find information about your quarry, and the place your neighbors could have been taken to afterthey had been captured via the Iron Shepherds, a journeying slavers crew.SAM: they’re the worst. MATT: they’re the worst. You went and had adiscussion at the estate Sybaritic with Ophelia Mardun, of whom you were despatched with the aid of The Gentleman tointerface with and do a deed for her a little bit over two weeks in the past. There it gave the impression that the intent ofyour job placed here on this city has aligned together with your current purpose of liberating your buddies andseeking vengeance towards the Iron Shepherds, as they currently work for a competitive loved ones tothe Mardun house, and in response to them destroying constituents of the exchange route that theMardun household enjoys via the middle and southern facets of the empire, they want you toinstill injury upon their merchants as well, by getting rid of the Iron Shepherds.You were givensome recommendations as to the place you could in finding some support, you gathered your things, made your method north intothe apparently corrupted and haunted Savalierwood, to search information about these Iron Shepherds andwhere they are. You narrowly refrained from two enormous, immensely mutated, bone-spurred bear creatures.You sought out and cased the exterior of the sour Nest, which is the fortress that was once given to theIron Shepherds through the loved ones that will pay them and maintains them in their employ. You determined to sendyour new druid friend, Nila, within the form of a small mouse, over the wall, supply by way of owl. Shesnuck by means of some parts of the fortress to collect intel, and to get an proposal of where you weregoing and what may just dwell inside. A couple of shut calls, and some discovery of what can be expectedwithin the inner, you made your way back, safely, to join your associates. ASHLY: I forgot in regards to the little one. (sigh) SAM: Oh yeah. ASHLY: Sorry, the meal that Lorenzo was once having. MARISHA: Oh, yeah. ASHLY: Sorry. That simply passed off to me.MATT: Upon accidentally spooking one of the most outerguards who were going for walks the perimeter of the wall that surrounds the sour Nest, you immediatelypicked up what you had, fled south, again via the Savalierwood, for your approach to Shadycreek Run tolook for method of probably finding extra help for this pastime when dusk hits, and whateverelse you are able to do to arrange for the necessary evacuation of your allies. And that’s the place weleft off. Mighty Nein, as you’ve got charged back by means of the purplish-grey corrupted Savalierwood,the noon solar barely seen by way of slight peaking cracks through the cover above you,leaping and hearing these massive growling sounds and hoots, you beeline it as pleasant that you may, and asquickly as that you could, earlier than you breach into the outskirts of the northern side of the North Cloverarea.You are now between some of the local structures, and you instantly begin to peer someof the slightly shady denizens of this north aspect of Shadycreek Run that look over theirshoulder, their hooded selves observing you as you go. You gradual your gait, as you might be no longerfleeing, per se, however you might have made your approach back to town. What would you find irresistible to do? SAM: What time is it? MATT: At this factor it would be noon, a littlebit in the afternoon. SAM: okay. Oh god! It’s midday! What will we do? ASHLY: We’re trying to acquire allies correct? MARISHA: Yeah. ASHLY: that is the plan. LIAM: Yeah, and we shouldn’t have all the time in theworld in view that we’re looking to intervene earlier than the worst happens.MARISHA: We mentioned about going and looking tosee if a Tasker could be up to it. There were the Taskers, and there have been the other crew of hiredworkers. MATT: yes, The Grunge Gang– The Grudge Gang,which the Taskers are part of it. SAM: Wait, is is Grudge or Grunge? MATT: Grudge. SAM: am i able to simply say Grunge is best name? MARISHA: Is it like, the Grudge Gang is anumbrella organization of the Taskers, or vice versa? MATT: Vice versa.The Grudge Gang is theoverarching, unfastened community of mercenaries that promote swords and don’t affiliate instantly with anyof the other political powers. They are all just external of the method inside town. The Taskersare a small subsect of the Grudge Gang which have taken it upon themselves to preserve the peace to acertain extent. LIAM: can we get a way of the Taskers, are theyjust a group, like us? Like a small crew, or we have no idea but? MATT: well, you do not know.You’ve gotten had someexperience here. The Taskers, fine that you could surmise, you haven’t had various dealings withthem, they’re more often than not within the local of 30 to 35 individuals. They aren’t a big team by using anymeans, and they’re stretched somewhat skinny, however due to the fact various them have buddies within theGrudge Gang, and people they’ve worked with before, they are able to often name upon buddies if needbe, certainly if they’ve some coin to their facet and they’ve a distinctive undertaking they needto do.ASHLY: well? SAM: Do you feel we should go talk one, chat oneup? ASHLY: It looks as if the quality choice to me. I’mnot definite who else we would turn to. MARISHA: I mean, just to play satan’s advocatehere, is it an hassle if we get a hired mercenary staff to kill one more underground faction in theirsame town? Is that– ASHLY: could it hint again to Ophelia, is thatwhat you’re pronouncing? MARISHA: Yeah, I have no idea, it can be a weirdpolitical hassle, hiring any person in the approach. SAM: perhaps before we go randomly hiring folks:what will we have got to make this assault? We will mainly get in. Additionally, we’re not attacking, correct?We’re simply going to move and try to rescue, or probably opt for off one or two of them, or smoke them out, sothat the prisoners, or some thing, ought to leave and we can rescue, proper? We’re no longer seeking to killeveryone in the motherfucking residence, correct? MARISHA: good this Ophelia desires us to killeveryone within the motherfucking house.SAM: good I just wish to get our people out. LIAM: Then we are not satisfying ourresponsibilities. SUMALEE: it’s going to be unattainable to save our friendswithout killing them. MARISHA: I feel she’s correct. LIAM: We go at night time, and the first step is takingcare of the two, there might be more, however two that we noticed on the wall, whoever is on the wall atnight, silently. Then, from all you might have advised us, now we have– this perhaps incomplete know-how– butthree. There may be the shithead himself, and then two you saw. SUMALEE: at least two eating.LIAM: So three total that we know about. SUMALEE: however there have been many extra beds. MARISHA: Plus, who is aware of who would arrive in thetime that we’re long gone. LIAM: That is also correct. MARISHA: I feel we have to be ready for all ofthem. SAM: however are we going to rent muscle, or magic, orwhat are we seeking to get? What helps us? MARISHA: I pass over Jester’s medication spells. SAM: probably there’s a location to buy some potions. ASHLY: well it looks as if– I imply, i am not thestealthiest person.It seems like having extra numbers is an effective factor. I do not know if we couldcreate a distraction of some sort, lead some of them away. I have no idea. SUMALEE: i will do that. I’m just right at that. ASHLY: Diversions? SUMALEE: yes. ASHLY: you are very eager about this, Nila. SUMALEE: I want to get in there as rapid as wecan.MARISHA: I imply, appear. The answer could finish upsolving itself, who recognize who in this town is even inclined to head up against the Iron Shepherds. ASHLY: Wait, would i know– SAM: Wait. LIAM, ASHLY, MARISHA and MATT: Wait. ASHLY: The place where they hold the prisoners isunderground? MATT: correct. ASHLY: would we just burn down the constructing? Burndown the motherfucking house? MATT: it can be quite often stone. ASHLY: Burn down the– is there wooden in there? MATT: there is factors of wood from a decorationstandpoint, but for essentially the most phase, it’s a stone constitution. SAM: We could convey in a variety of kindling. MARISHA: Smoke them out! That’s truly not a badidea, now that I feel about it, though. LIAM: while you have been on this condo, as a mouse,there used to be no manner down there.It used to be a solid entice door. You do not know what was below it? SUMALEE: I might hear them, however that’s the onlything that I might see. LIAM: What did you hear, certainly? SUMALEE: I heard voices, I consider that. I wastrying to pay attention for my accomplice and my son. I do know they had been the voices of the captured folks, theprisoners. I believe I heard voices as good of one of the vital murderers. LIAM: well, we must peel this like an onion. Weneed to, I feel, get some aid. Get some reassurance. Outer layer of the onion is makingsure we take whoever is on the partitions, whoever is preserving watch, out, silently, so that we can beginanew with the building itself.I feel that both you or my pal here should go in forward of us sowe have some notion of what is taking place. Once in a at the same time I turn this one into a spider. It is gradual,but it is vitally undetectable. MARISHA: (laughing) LIAM: Do you feel another way? MARISHA: Sorry, i am just imagining an infiltrationwith the spider, like that’s feasible. SAM: Tip of the spear! MARISHA: Go, Frumpkin, go! ASHLY: Get him! Now chew him! MATT: Lorenzo, felled with the aid of a brown recluse! MARISHA: Put him in his boot! LIAM: actually, there are ways that i can hurtpeople with a spider, but i’m simply speakme about having a seem round in order that we aren’t walkinginto some thing distinctive than what you saw final night time.MARISHA: definite. Literally anything is better than aspider, though. For that. I just wish to factor that out. LIAM: good, I disagree with you. MARISHA: I imply they’ve got numerous eyes, I getthat, however I feel in terms of a action concern, spiders aren’t the first-rate. LIAM: conform to disagree. ASHLY: Do you guys desire a 2d, must we take asmoke break? LIAM: you might be new. That is very ordinary. It is justpart of the workforce dynamic. We’re all friends. SAM: it’s like, have you ever ever visible a debate staff?They decide upon one aspect, and the other, after which they just go at it for a while. ASHLY: there’s no rather debating in ShadycreekRun. Normally insult, kill, insult, kill.SAM: They will have to rather start a debate membership. ASHLY: We must rather begin the primary one! LIAM: i am a grasp debater. ASHLY: Shadycreek Debaters? Facet mission. MARISHA: Shady Debaters! ASHLY: Shady Debaters? That’s all I care aboutnow. MATT: well that’s our subsequent merch piece there. MARISHA: Laura, make a Shady Debaters debate teamshirt! MATT: Nope! LIAM: however we wish to take numbers down, so we peelthe outer layer individually. If all goes well, then there may be whoever is upstairs. The tremendous X element iswhat is what’s under.We don’t know how many folks are beneath. SAM: You mentioned the dozing quarters are upstairs.If we went within the dead of night, and i do know you have got a spell that can lock a door, or shut a dooror anything? LIAM: If i can to find substances in Shadycreek. Ineed gold dirt, various gold dirt. How likely is that right here? ASHLY: Would i do know where to search out that? Would thatbe the general retailer, would which have that? MATT: they will have it there, yeah. You haven’thad to gather gold dust before, but in the event you have been to ask round, you could see if there’s some placein the vicinity that could carry it.LIAM: To first get gold dust, I would need gold. ASHLY: Which we might also need to hire humans. SAM: we have now some. LIAM: How so much do now we have? I’ve subsequent tonothing. ASHLY: i have a hundred thirty. SUMALEE: i’ve ten gold portions. SAM: Did you say ten? SUMALEE: Ten. SAM: Oh wow. SUMALEE: i am joyful to make a contribution that. ASHLY: Is it a hundred thirty gold? Or is it silver that Ihave? MATT: one hundred thirty gold. LIAM: What about within the haversack? Does Jesterhave any dollars in there? SAM: Oh. That’s a good query. I’ll attain in andsee what she has.MARISHA: I’ve acquired a little bit bit of dollars. LIAM: text thread explodes in 5, four, three. SAM: i would like my thing? Where’s the foreign money inhere? MARISHA: when you go below equipment– ASHLY: you don’t recall your handy acronym? SAM: i need it written down! Oh there it is. LIAM: don’t forget, "LIAM EATS FARTS." SAM: "LIAM EATS FARTS!" that’s proper, it is righthere. I’ve just a few hundred gold. MARISHA: same. ASHLY: might be we need men and women on the outside to takecare of individuals on watch. The onion you are speaking about, possibly the outer layers are the hired hands,after which we’re the ones who go in. LIAM: Yeah, it might be a bunch effort. I feelvery confident for many of our advantage for the ones on the external. What i am worried about isentering the entrance door. What’s in the back of? What i would find irresistible to do is go when they’re slumbering andhopefully homicide them of their sleep, is the pleasant case.SUMALEE: Why do not we name them out, then? Whydon’t we make them come outside? We’ve got more capabilities external. SAM: however then they’ll have weapons. LIAM: Yeah, the object when anyone is dozing ina bed is they are like little– (whispering) I used to be going to say infants. I mustn’t say that! SAM: don’t say that to her, specifically. SUMALEE: I can not use my lightning within.That isall i am saying. ASHLY: What if we entice one in all them out for you tofry like a chicken? SUMALEE: i would be okay with that. LIAM: there may be a little bit bit that we must playthis by ear. I think we must go at night time to handle matters when it is the least busy. ASHLY: Is there whatever we’re lacking? SAM: we have no means of treatment ourselves if wedie, until you have got cure potions on you. LIAM: good, possibly we are able to in finding some in Shadycreek. ASHLY: i have two potions of bigger medication. SAM: what number of can we all have? She has two. MARISHA: i’ve one. LIAM: One. SUMALEE: Of what? MARISHA: treatment potions. SUMALEE: i’ve cure phrases. SAM, ASHLY, and MARISHA: Ooh! SUMALEE: Does that aid? MARISHA: That does aid! SUMALEE: quality! And i have these Goodberries! MARISHA: those are good! Those are pleasant! SUMALEE: And i can support provide us further power. In myclan, we have now a bear spirit often called Oaktar. If I invoke the spirit of Oaktar, it gives us eachextra energy. ASHLY: Your clan sounds notable.SAM: Do I have to go to church or something? SUMALEE: No, you just have to be– I believe it’swithin 30 feet of where I put the spirit totem. LIAM: That seems surprisingly specific. MARISHA: i’m into it, yeah. ASHLY: so that you could Nott’s factor, what do we need? Weneed warring parties, we’d like magic? What do we’d like? MARISHA: I just like the proposal of getting some type offighter, specifically if Nila can maybe take out that outer onion layer with the lightning. Weshould have found a better analogy.LIAM: Than an onion? Well, how about we’re justgoing to kill the men and women on the wall, how is that for a metaphor? MARISHA: i love that. LIAM: I like the concept of any individual with a little bitof muscle after which yet another individual who is adept at cure injuries. SAM: good, we did hear about that bizarre– someonesaid that there’s some priest or some thing, or cleric? LIAM: in the woods. MARISHA: Ophelia stated that, yeah.SAM: Yeah, so we could go see if they could giveus– MARISHA: support. SAM: Or come alongside? LIAM: Did Ophelia mention how a ways out into thewoods that man or woman was? MATT: journey taking walks is about roughly four to sixhours relying on how well which you could make your approach through the terrain. LIAM: it’s the identical day? MATT: it’s like two in the afternoon, yeah. SAM: a good way to make it tonight. MARISHA: I oddly trust that greater than hiringsomeone from The Grudge Gang. LIAM: Ja, that may be a just right factor. MARISHA: I think like the Grudge Gang might haveties to the Iron Shepherds or at the least an inside man. LIAM: Yeah, friendsies. ASHLY: I imply we would are trying, but when all they’re isa healer– SAM: that may be effective, although. I imply healingpotions are best, however we need anyone who can– we get killed rather a lot or close to, you understand? ASHLY: Yeah. MARISHA: I’ve seen some lovely badass monks inmy day.ASHLY: Do i’ve any experience of– SAM: you have got? ASHLY: She stated probably the most kooky ones out inthe woods, proper? MATT: Yeah, she stated a Blooming Grove. ASHLY: Do i’ve any feel of what that is? MATT: you’ve gotten not always heard of The BloomingGrove. Roll a history assess, surely. ASHLY: This now not going to go good. 12. MATT: that is no longer too dangerous. You will have vaguely heard ofThe Blooming Grove, but it’s not pointed out that very by and large. It can be extra observed do because the BoneOrchard. ASHLY: Hmm, less enjoyable. MATT: Yeah, you haven’t been there, however from whatyou comprehend, it is this unusual, old gravesite that’s been on the outskirts of city, just a few milesout, because before the town was once built.ASHLY: Are these healers regarded through humans inShadycreek Run to be wackadoos? Or are they– MATT: From what you understand, from what you have heard,every person thinks they’re strange, creepy hermits and probably witches. Nobody relatively goes there.Some folks in here have a tendency to place on the air of not being superstitious, however the Savalierwood carriesa lot of superstition with it. Some men and women, even as they’ll play it off, still look to get a littlenervous about delving too deep into it. ASHLY: good, that may be a just right factor. If this personlives in the Savalierwoods, then they may be now not vulnerable. There may be quite a lot of crazy shit within the woods, so theymust be equipped to maintain their own, or at the least remain discrete. SAM: they don’t belong to any %, or group thatwe would have got to negotiate with? ASHLY: No, they are living outside the– I mean, they’renot even rather involving the clans. MARISHA: Did we hear what god they worship? MATT: you haven’t any thought.MARISHA: I think like if it was once one of the crucial acceptedgods of The Empire, you would not ought to hide out in the woods. I am style of into this notion. ASHLY: we are able to try. SAM: Is it worth asking a Tasker first? What wouldwe even ask? Just how so much it could be to rent you for some muscle? ASHLY: Yeah. They are no longer affiliated directly. It’sbetter for them to now not be affiliated with any detailed companies, so– however you already know. That is nota great position. LIAM: good, we’re weighing two things towards eachother. One is expediency when you consider that there are a lot of individuals in Shadycreek who would possibly lend asword or ability. But I believe that you are correct. That there is not any telling theirallegiance, and i am no longer ruling them out, but this man or woman out within the woods: probably not in thepocket of our enemies.We have to come to a decision in a timely fashion. ASHLY: well, how hardy would you say the mentalstate of your companions is? MARISHA: the ones in captivity? ASHLY: Yeah. SAM: Oh, I proposal you intended us, since we’reright right here. We can hear you. ASHLY: No. I do know that. MARISHA: most of the time beautiful unstable. ASHLY: What, do you suppose that they’d besusceptible to torture? MARISHA: Being controlled. SAM: Fjord, in most cases now not. Yasha’s in general isokay. Jester has already turned. She’s flipped. She’s regularly flipped. ASHLY: Oh, then there isn’t a rush. LIAM: Or wrapped them around her finger, one wayor the other. No, they’re sincerely beautiful– they’ve obtained their shit collectively. MARISHA: They arguably have their shit togetherway greater than the three of us do. ASHLY: Would they guard– LIAM: A child? ASHLY: Yeah. LIAM: sure. ASHLY: k. MARISHA: Yeah, specially Jester. ASHLY: Then perhaps it can be all right to take a littlebit more time.LIAM: We need to make a selection. MARISHA: What time is it? MATT: Pushing previous two to a few in the afternoon. MARISHA: You mentioned it’s four hours there. MATT: four to 6 hours relying on how good youtravel. ASHLY: we now have our horses? SAM: Are we jogging or horsing? MATT: that is running. Your horse isn’t going to goany rapid than you in the core of this very clustered forest. There is no direction that leads toit. MARISHA: Brisk power stroll there, that’ll get usthere right round sunset. Speak to humans. Power walk back, should get us there back– SAM: For the Tonight exhibit? MARISHA: yes, in time for Saturday night time are living. (laughter) ASHLY: Lorenzo loves that exhibit. He’ll be upwatching it. MARISHA: pleasant. ASHLY: we are going to trade the plan. LIAM: (announcer voice) Ophelia Mardun. (laughter) MARISHA: We probably able to head and get back intime, is what i’m announcing, and nonetheless be able to attack tonight.LIAM: To the loved ones, ja. If we find what wefind within the woods is invaluable sufficient, and we think excellent with what we bought. Then in the middle of thenight is a go. MARISHA: If it is a complete bust, then that sucks. SAM: we can nonetheless find a Tasker. ASHLY: Yeah, they shouldn’t have a bedtime. MARISHA: that’s actual. LIAM: We wish to hit it at two or three in themorning. MARISHA: All right, let’s go. Are you just right withthat, Nila? You seem anxious. SUMALEE: I might verify my odor bag, however I trustyou right now. SAM: No, examine your odor bag. SUMALEE: Oh thanks. It makes me think so muchbetter. SAM: See if it passes the scent test. LIAM: anything makes you suppose relaxed. SUMALEE: this is for going to search out the priest whohas distinct advantage for reviving the dead and medication folks. SAM: (fart noise) SUMALEE: beautiful just right. Ok, this is for TheTaskers and The Grunge Gang. ASHLY: She took your identify for it. SAM: Oh, it can be a better identify. SUMALEE: Did I mistake it? ASHLY and SAM: No, no.ASHLY: that’s excellent. Scent your bag. SUMALEE: It smells salty. Salty versus a littlebit of a uncooked, but grounded spicy flavor. I love that one. Allow us to go see the priest. Thanks,odor bag. LIAM: You are not able to argue with that. SAM: No. You can not argue with someone who talksto a scent bag. ASHLY: that is correct. SUMALEE: It has given me a lot relief over manyyears. I like it. Thank you. SAM: sure. MARISHA: well, lets? LIAM: Yeah. ASHLY and MARISHA: Let’s vigour stroll. MATT: All proper. SAM: Butt-cheeks clenched. ASHLY: what is the one where you wiggle? Is thatpower running? SAM: pace running. MARISHA: like grandmas in shops, likearound Christmas time. LIAM: Are we Prancercising? MATT: all people has their Fitbits attuned? MARISHA: yes. MATT: First off, what’s your marching order,please? LIAM: Oh, also are our horses useless? SAM: No, we will take the horses. It would not speedus up, however at the least we would be on horses. MATT: you can take them with you. LIAM: however it would not pace us up, for the reason that it’sthe woods? MATT: seeing that it can be like a thick wood.LIAM: Let’s stroll. MATT: k. Who’s up front? Who’s within the again?Who’s guiding what? ASHLY: Would i do know higher, possibly, the place I’mgoing? Will have to I be in entrance? Or have I in no way been to this? MATT: It is dependent. Whoever needs to advisor this willbe taking the survival exams to guide you by means of. So who wants to be making– SAM: Nila, you look to grasp in regards to the woods. No? SUMALEE: i would be joyful to. Oh yes, survival isgood for me. LIAM: i’ll stroll just behind Nila. MAT: ok, so Nila’s helming that. SUMALEE: you are relying on me. I am very happy. ASHLY: Aww. LIAM: She’s just the largest. I will standnext to the largest individual. MATT: that’s a just right call. MARISHA: that is still reliance. MATT: Who’s in the back of or close Caleb? ASHLY: i’m going to take up the again. MATT: All right, so Keg’s keeping up the back.Beau within the middle? MARISHA: Nott, do you want the center? SAM: yes, please.MATT: There you go. I’ll put Frumpkin there, nextto– okay. MARISHA: Fuh-wumpkin. MATT: Taking this second now, you start to headback far from Shadycreek, and helming this group of ragtag adventures you’ve below your wing. Youtread into an area of the Savalierwood you may have not traveled before hoping that your instincts, yoursmell bag, and the spirit of what nature has managed to maintain itself by means of this corruptedwood could guide you effectively to your vacation spot. I need you to make a survival verify, please. ASHLY: She is superstitiously leading us round,just smelling. LIAM: Get it girl. SUMALEE: Oh. MARISHA: That was once just about first-rate. LIAM: Is there something to add to– ooh. SUMALEE: Ten. MATT: Ten, okay. You continue to have your luck feat ifyou want to, until you need to put it aside.SUMALEE: Oh, sure. MATT: you have two extra aspects left. SUMALEE: I consider we will have to use it. Sure. I wouldlike to use one success point. MATT: an extra luck point. SUMALEE: 17 plus seven. 24. MATT: 24, k! SUMALEE: we shall live to tell the tale. MATT: no longer best do you rapidly manipulate to search out theportions of the wooded paths which might be least blockaded by using thorny brambles and fallenhalf-rotted bushes, but you additionally manage to support the party avoid just a few small openings that lookuniquely and uncomfortably welcoming. In the course of a wooden like this, you realize out of your experienceas well, that it isn’t normally a good concept to step where it seems most inviting, whilst you comprehend thewood around you to be much less so. MARISHA: (whispering) sure, yes. MATT: As you crest around the 2d of those opengroves, you realize how the bottom itself appears to shift relatively, and also you watch as for a second itseems to nearly pit as elements of the filth suck inward. You understand the antlion funnels that appearin the sand and starts offevolved to come in in the direction of them.The ground nearly appears to sink in for a secondbefore righting itself. The grove stands flat another time, however thankfully, because of the survivalinstincts of your firbolg leader, you manage to careen past two of those patches with out limitation.Pushing on at a really extreme pace, within three and a 1/2 hours, no longer even the whole four– ASHLY: hiya! MATT: You control to make your strategy to an area wherethe color particularly alterations forward of you. The slightly still red-grey colour that suffusesmost of the ordinary landscape within the Savalierwood, offers method to a patch of inexperienced in thedistance. This is the primary signal that calls forth that heat sensation you got whilst you had checkedthis route within your scent bag. Because the rest of you start to accumulate up behind Nila, the nearer youget you begin to observe as these iciness bushes, that comprise most of this northern wooded area, provide means togreen o.K. And swamp-headquartered plant lifestyles. The temperature, as you get to a designated threshold,starts offevolved to be no longer quite as biting cold, rather hotter with each and every step.Watching round right away,the very first thing that catches your eye is this colossal wall of tangled vine and thorns. The samepurplish-gray colour. The golf green is still ahead of you. Do you guys need to proceed on? Anything youwant to do? ASHLY: You said there’s a wall of thorns? MATT: It looks like a usual wall that curls upabout 5 or so feet. ASHLY: In our way. MATT: in your method, sure. SAM: How far to the sides does it go? As a ways asthe eye can see? MATT: Make a notion check. SAM: that is type of cocked. I’m going to take it anyway.Eleven plus nothing. MATT: just a little approaches off it appears to dip a bit.Maybe about one hundred ft or to be able to the northern side of it. You’ve gotten been journeying northwest to reach thispart of the woodland.MARISHA: We can’t see over the wall? MATT: you can find over it slightly, as there is onlyabout 5 or so ft most areas. As you get just a little bit closer, you can see areas the place thesetangle of vines are pulled apart or have totally enclosed, and also you see lengthy-rusted, wrought ironbars, a fence of some kind. A boundary that was once positioned long in the past, that has on the grounds that been slowly takenback by nature. Then you definately to look that area of the wall that you just had seen, Nott, that hadseemed to be bending, and the vines have actually curled over and bent it downward.It seems thatwhatever this little portion of the forest is– whatever protecting magics that after containedthis outer vicinity have begun to offer in to the corruption of the Savalierwood. SAM: should we hop the fence? LIAM: One second. I ship Frumpkin as much as flit about50 toes forward to look if there’s whatever ahead, or from a hen’s eye view that we are unable todetect.MATT: k, make a belief determine for Frumpkinwith competencies on the grounds that it’s nonetheless within the owl type. LIAM: that may be a 21. MATT: Frumpkin darts up, leaping from tree part totree side, gliding via. There are numerous layers of an identical walls. Three different layers,looks like. Whereas the outskirts or the perimeter of this lovely, covered, historic gravesitethat once held this corruption at bay has slowly collapsed inward, and a brand new boundary is positioned.Then that boundary has fallen. As the corruption pulls in further, a new boundary is built. Thatthird boundary now seems to be within the process of giving in, identical to its previous constructs.Within this 1/3 subject, you will see not just a lack of snow, or ice, or the wintry weather kick back, however anearly humid summer heat, some thing more akin to the southern tip of the Empire or even MenagerieCoast. It is an unexpected and extreme shift in temperature and weather.There’s somethingunnatural, or as a minimum magical, that continues this little pocket of untouched paradise. Thereyou can see small swimming pools, bits of bathroom where the gentle inexperienced and browns of compost fall into inexperienced,thick, algae-covered bits of water. You can find dozens and dozens of stone capsules, about a footto two feet high, with bits of script across them, too far to look, that have partly fallen orleaning. At which point Frumpkin appears around and this complete discipline, from the outer very side wherethat first perimeter wall was discovered, to the inside has all been graves, most taken again by means of theSavalierwood because it slowly crushes anything this location is at its supply. On the a ways finish, towardsthe core and the back– the northern part of this final, defending pocket of uncorrupted forest–you’ll discover a stone building, probably 20 by 30 ft, built as an old stone steeple.It standswindowless, open, and the floor of it to each open window overgrown with green vine and leaf. LIAM: Frumpkin is how a ways from me at this factor? MATT: Frumpkin is about 100 to a hundred and fifty toes from you. LIAM: So i will simplest watch. I have muttered allthis, gazing. We’re speaking concentric rings? MATT: Yeah. MARISHA: I suppose that is the place. LIAM: Ja. MATT: Frumpkin begins to return, and a passing ofone of the clouds offers more daylight that breaks by way of what was once previously a very dense, graysky. As the sunshine passes between the small breaks within the tree canopies, the green involves lightwith colour, countless forms of colour. A rainbow of vegetation, of pigments you have got not ever fairly seenbefore, begin to emerge as the sunshine hits it. Just about each inch of these gravesites include asmattering scatter of rainbow colours across petal and stamen. LIAM: i am beginning to suppose this a bit of morethan we came looking for, however now we have traveled a ways. SAM: Is there any signal of life? I imply, other thanplant lifestyles? MATT: You saw perhaps a few frogs, small naturalcreatures that exist inside this house, however nothing that might resemble a human but.It seemsstill. SAM and ASHLY: Let’s go in. SAM: How can we get over these matters? Might weclimb them or would we get reduce to shreds? MATT: that you can surely try. ASHLY: How tall are the gates? MATT: The areas where the fence has been pushed inis between five to 6 toes in areas, areas the place it seems to be pushed down diminish to about 4 toeven three and a 1/2. ASHLY: Your friend’s coat? I know it’s maybenot– SAM: You imply the tapestry? ASHLY: The tapestry. I know it might hurt it, butif we drape it over– MARISHA: We buried him with it. ASHLY: Oh, that is correct.MARISHA: however that is a just right thought. ASHLY: you want to return? I could try to hack atit with my axe. SUMALEE: would an animal jump over it? MATT: Yeah. You guys might try to climb andleap over. Factors of it are thorned and jagged. MARISHA: this is what I used to do to hop fencesback within the day. I seem for a couple of broken-down branches that perhaps my peak. MATT: Make an investigation check. MARISHA: A handful. LIAM: we are happening a witch hunt. We cannot goover it, we can’t go under it. MARISHA: Ten. MATT: that’s reasonable. It takes you a few minutes andyou in finding a couple of softer pieces of department and vine that have fallen to the corruption.It’sinteresting; you contact them and they’re supple like vines, but they are gray and freezing to thetouch. It is an extraordinarily bizarre, unnatural feeling, however it appears supple. MARISHA: before I do anything with it, I take itover to Nila. Nila, have you noticeable any variety of blight on a plant like this before? Do you knowwhat that is? It’s bloodless, feel it. SUMALEE: you are right. Do i do know what this is? MATT: Make a nature assess. SUMALEE: i love making nature tests. Sure! 17. MATT: you’ve got studied and obvious, within the vicinityof where you grew up and the place your clan had raised you and your kids, numerous forms ofdisease and common method of plant lifestyles succumbing to sickness or an outside force. What you can tellis that this is not ordinary. This isn’t some naturally shaped blight. There’s some much olderand much more strong latent reasoning for this corruption.SUMALEE: I do not think trustworthy using it. ASHLY: i know that is well-worn dwarf goofterritory, however does anybody want to throw me? SAM: That seems very derogatory. Also you’re superheavy, though, aren’t you? ASHLY: that’s real. You all wish to throw me? MARISHA: I take the branches and i try to lay themdown over the vines a bit bit and provides rather less thorny of a ramp. MATT: You lean them up against it and slowly theybow over. MARISHA: seem, they hook all on their own, that’spretty excellent. ASHLY: excellent job, Beau. MARISHA: thanks, look at that! SAM: We would try to throw you. ASHLY: i assume it might make extra experience to throwyou, but i do not want to– SAM: No, that you can throw me, definite. LIAM: Caleb starts to climb over. MATT: All correct. Make a perception verify. LIAM: 16. MATT: As you carefully location your arms across theelements of vine and root, you control to keep a keen look for any type of bladed, thorned, orhooked elements that protrude from the local fauna. You control to avert any of them fromcatching your coat, catching your flesh, and step, leaping over to the opposite facet with out difficulty.SAM: that’s amazing! He is powerful. LIAM: no person was aware I was once panicked the wholetime. The thorns are almost like small razors. SAM: i am coming! LIAM: careful. SAM: i’m just going to sprint over. MATT: you are simply going to dash over? Make anacrobatics investigate. SAM: That used to be 12 plus… 19. MATT: Caleb has shown areas, as he passed over,the place you can safely climb. The relaxation of you don’t have to make tests. Nott ignores this entirelyand goes leaping and flipping and trying to make her way over. The genuine fence bends slightlyat the influence of foot, the iron under having wilted due to lengthy-form rust and whateverperpetual weight has been placed upon it from this land attempting to reclaim it from underneath.Nott leaps, double flip within the air, lands on the opposite side, skids slightly as your ft hit aslight bit of the icy ground, but you control to capture yourself, no difficulty.ASHLY: Keg holds up a ten. MATT: each of you are making your method over this elementof the woodland, continuing on earlier the subsequent two boundaries, ultimately making your manner into thecentral area of the Blooming Grove. The term now hanging a bell as you look round and can seethese stunning flora as the sun rays hit and cross. It’s like the colour flares up once the lighthits it after which appears to gray because it passes on. You now stand, temperature a lot hotter, andthere’s just that stone structure forward. LIAM: How a long way away is the constitution? MATT: From where you are standing on the interiorof it, about 40 or so toes. MARISHA: On the tombstones which might be round, do Irecognize any of the language, or can i tell how ancient a few of these gravesites are? MATT: Make an investigation verify. MARISHA: 21. MATT: watching via, there are a number of languagesthat come through, most of them are elven and they’re very ancient.Some of them show up to be 100, 200,four hundred-500 years old. Whatever members or families or bloodlines were interred in thisspace had been placed here for an extraordinarily long time, except not too long ago. MARISHA: until just lately, okay. MATT: You do see person who seems to be maybeabout ten years historic. Very faint elements of wear and tear and tear. MARISHA: what’s the name? MATT: The title on that one could be Elvish and itwould be Tyriel Casala. MARISHA: Tyriel Castala? MATT: Casala. MARISHA: Casala. MATT: She knows Elvish, however she would not reallyspeak it more often than not, so the pronunciations get a bit weird. LIAM: Domo arigato. ASHLY: So should i am going knock on that door? SAM: Is there a door? MATT: there’s a door, yes. LIAM: keep on. SAM: How gigantic a place is the door situation? MATT: The door itself is perhaps 4 ft huge,it’s a single door. It is an historical wooden– the bottom half of it is green with developing moss and otherbits of vegetation that are set in to the slightly damp wood that it can be constructed from.The top appears to be break up and warped just a little bit over time because of the moisture in the air.LIAM: Caleb tries to creep as much as a gravestone andhide behind it to get inside 30 ft of the door. MATT: k, make a stealth examine. SAM: On the roof or the highest of the– sorry. LIAM: 9. SAM: On the roof or high of the constitution, arethere any holes or whatever? MATT: Make a notion examine. SAM: thirteen. MATT: satisfactory you will see that, no. It can be lovely well made.The walls and the roof all show up to be constituted of stone. SAM: but no windows or anything? MATT: There are home windows. That you could most effective fairly seethe entrance and proper side of it, the southeast side of it out of your viewpoint– there is a singlewindow. It’s an arched window that looks love it could have been developed at one factor to maintain glass orstained glass, but it’s not there.You’ll find the smooth, jungle-like flora at the base of ithas swooped up and grown over and into the interior of the structure. First-rate that you would be able to inform fromthis distance, there is no seen light instantly inside of, however there is a bit of naturallight that’s coming in through the open house. SAM: Can i go over to the window and take a peekin, stealthily? MATT: definite, roll a stealth investigate. SAM: 12. I’m going to take a giant swig of booze after which goover and take a look at.MATT: ok. You start to dart throughout the openspace, dodging through gravestones and as you’re passing one of them, there’s a bit of a thornedvine that catches the again of your cloak. It pulls taut before you get yanked to your neck, slipback, and Nott slams on the ground giving a little sound. ASHLY: Keg holds up a ten. SAM: Why do you could have that with you? ASHLY: i am trying just a little. I am attempting a new factor. MATT: there’s a brief pause, all of you hold insilence listening to a far off fowl that goes quiet, the wind passing through the timber.You hear thewooden door begins to slowly open as a shaded figure steps beyond the body. Taliesin, if youwant to step in. (cheering) MATT: in the end! (laughing) TALIESIN: that is my stuff. LIAM: you are relatively just a random shopkeep in thewoods? TALIESIN: it’s detrimental to move on my own– LIAM and TALIESIN: –take this! TALIESIN: simply going to get my stuff. MATT: Would you love to describe what they seeemerge from this small stone temple? TALIESIN: From this small stone temple emerges atall, no longer always healthily thin firbolg, who’s pale and a grayish color, and has a giant shockof weirdly red mohawk hair– LIAM: you do not say. SAM: No! TALIESIN: i go manner off the reservation right here.He is a little bit gaunt.He’s received a little fuzz, he is wearing this weird– he’s wearing this verygentle silk shirt that is acquired one lengthy, flowy sleeve. He’s received a cup of tea. He is just staring.Huh. I believe I’ve best got three extra cups. Hold on. I’m going back in. SAM: (shouting) do you know her? Do you know him? SUMALEE: it’s a firbolg! He’s a firbolg! SAM: (shouting) do you know him? What’s his identify? SUMALEE: I do not! However he’s a firbolg! He’s oneof my individuals! (gasps) he is a firbolg. This shall be good. My smell bag was correct once more! TALIESIN: i’m going to come out, i’m going to havea little kettle set up on a bit tripod. I am hanging it down, i am striking a colossal rod with a bigpurple chunk of amethyst on it underneath the kettle. Tapping it a pair times to get thekettle to heating up. I will wander into the graveyard and find some plants for tea.MATT: okay. SAM: can we tag along? Do you want any support? LIAM: Does he look like he will kill us? MATT: Make an insight investigate. LIAM: thanks. 19. MATT: 19? LIAM: Nein-teen. MATT: There would not seem to be any chance at themoment. TALIESIN: Mr. Clay, and nah, i’m fine. Onesecond. SAM: he is Mr. Clay. TALIESIN: I come back with a pile of purple-purpleflowers and i’m grinding up. This is from Casala.Cloth loved ones generations ago, however they make verygood tea now. (sighs) MARISHA: Wait, back up a 2d. Are you Mr.Clay? TALIESIN: Mm. Caduceus Clay. Take a seat. MARISHA: Caduceus Clay. TALIESIN: i’m going to put out the three cups andwait for the pot to boil. SAM: hi there. MARISHA: Is that Caduceus with a okay, or a C? Ok. SAM: hi. Oh, we have got to wait? TALIESIN: Pour out the three cups. You’ve gotten toshare, I say sorry. ASHLY: i don’t drink tea. Booze is excellent. LIAM: I come over and take a seat and take one among theteas. MARISHA: Caleb and i will share one and i hand theother to Nila. SUMALEE: I would love to take a look at your tea. TALIESIN: Please, let me comprehend what you suppose. SUMALEE: it is delicious. TALIESIN: most effective grows right here. SUMALEE: I want to hug you. TALIESIN: Oh, please. Come. SUMALEE: Nila gives him a significant hug! TALIESIN: i haven’t had one of these in a longtime. That’s pleasant. SUMALEE: i’m from the Guiatao Tribe. Do you knowus? TALIESIN: No. I’m definite they may be amazing, although.That sounds just exceptional. That sounds distinctive.Associates! (sigh) you might have come. (sigh) Please, letme comprehend what i can do for you. Commonly when persons come right here, it’s in view that of some excellent tragedy.How can i alleve your pain? LIAM: Oh, well, Herr Clay, we come to you with agreat tragedy. MARISHA: a couple of quality tragedies. LIAM: Do you need to, or must I? MARISHA: well, the first one is, I feel, it’stime for Caleb to have a different bathtub. It is been a little bit bit. LIAM: that is the primary one? MARISHA: Being with no shower has been a little bit ofa tragedy. LIAM: (whispering) will we rather have time for acomedy bit like this? MARISHA: No.SAM: We just lately misplaced one of our friends. TALIESIN: i might assume. MARISHA: I failed to want to open the gate like that.That’s why we’re here. TALIESIN: persons who come right here almost always have. SAM: We are not here to bury him. He’s already inthe floor. We have now come to avenge him and we had been hoping to find some support in these constituents. TALIESIN: Avenge him? What happened? ASHLY: do you know the Iron Shepherds? TALIESIN: Do i know the Iron Shepherds? MATT: You genuinely have not. You would have noidea. TALIESIN: No, i’m sorry, I fairly do not get toleave very traditionally, especially at the moment. LIAM: How lengthy have you ever been alone out right here? TALIESIN: (contemplative sigh) Been 20 seasonsnow, 18 seasons? Are attempting to not depend, it just gets in the way of more essential matters. LIAM: how many seasons has it been considering someonehas knocked on your door like we now have? TALIESIN: it’s been about two seasons, I consider.Little little bit of business, but it’s been very gradual. MARISHA: Do you most effective gauge time in seasons? TALIESIN: it’s the only time that appears tomatter.MARISHA: that’s reasonable. SUMALEE: I agree. SAM: Do you’re employed here? Is that this your situation? Do youown this land? TALIESIN: i am so excited! SAM: Are you the funeral director? TALIESIN: Most individuals who come here comprehend what thisplace is, that is going to be pleasant. I’ve never had to give an explanation for it to anybody earlier than. SAM: it can be a graveyard. It’s a boneyard. TALIESIN: well, boneyard is slightly crass, however yeah,it is a position the place we take the dearly departed who have carried out well and the persons who’ve livedgood lives and we put them into earth that has been touched by means of the Wildmother. In turn, shegrants them with magnificence and beauty and frequently tea. SAM: Like a boneyard type of a location? TALIESIN: extra like a backyard. We have been tendingthis backyard for generations. MARISHA: We’re drinking dead men and women tea? TALIESIN: don’t seem to be we all? LIAM: that is a very fair point.MARISHA: Very true. But you’re cultivating deadpeople for good tea? TALIESIN: don’t seem to be we all? MARISHA: Yeah, k. Yeah. That is a good point. LIAM: we are very random visitors from out of theblue. We do come to you with tragedy. We do have a buddy within the ground. We do have friends who arein dire want of assistance. You aid individuals into the bottom, however offhand, do you support them out ofthe floor? TALIESIN: well, I imply, usually we can helppeople who are on the threshold of demise.We obviously have an understanding of that almost all individuals would alternatively spendtheir time alive than now not, and that makes sense. I undoubtedly haven’t any curiosity in shortening my lifeany time quickly. SAM: but you can’t convey anyone again who’salready expired? TALIESIN: I mean, that’s very difficult. Whenever you’redead, there may be a usual order to matters. There may be a movement that matters have got to go, however in certaincases, i am sure. LIAM: now we have all read reports of the exotic,however you do not need this to your wheelhouse, you might be saying? TALIESIN: Oh, i will regularly support men and women.Younever be aware of. MARISHA: ok, good, beyond serving to our recentlypassed friend, how do you consider about helping humans who are on the brink of existence and dying incaptivity? LIAM: Three in the cage is valued at one in the dust. SUMALEE: There are firbolgs in this team, too,that need support. SAM: they have been kidnapped, together with a firbolgchild. MARISHA: and they could not have long to live. ASHLY: they are being held with the aid of the Iron Shepherds. SAM: who are unhealthy guys. We’re good guys.Well,we’re sort of bad guys, too. MARISHA: We’re working on it. LIAM: we are not dangerous guys. ASHLY: We’re doing all proper. SAM: Are you a nasty guy? TALIESIN: you already know, actually, i don’t feel I’vehad sufficient experience to have an opinion on that. I’m a just right gardener. SAM: What do you grow, as opposed to dead tea? TALIESIN: I develop lilies, I grow bramble,mushrooms, moss.MARISHA: useless bramble. Lifeless mushrooms. Useless moss. LIAM: if you are saying that you’re capable to helppeople again from the brink of extinction, on party or under the proper situations, I amgoing to hazard a bet that you would heal a wound in a snap, yeah? TALIESIN: now not with an exact snap, however yeah, I cando that. I do not have to snap, although. I can be fairly quiet when I do it– beautiful quiet, Iactually need to say anything, now that I think about it.ASHLY: i will take a bet: you don’tleave right here very much, do you? TALIESIN: I’ve left a couple of times, I suppose. It’sbeen a at the same time. I’ve been on my possess for a even as. It makes you get just a little rambly. SAM: you are stationed right here? Are you allowed toleave? TALIESIN: that is a little of a story. My loved ones haverun this temple for generations, and i am variety of the last one left retaining the fort down. SAM: No cousins or whatever? TALIESIN: No cousins.A pair sisters, a brother,my mothers and fathers, but all people’s both wandered off to support try to fix what’s been going unsuitable or hasbeen put into the earth. SAM: What’s been going unsuitable? What’s that? What’sgoing improper? TALIESIN: well, as i am certain you may have possiblynoticed, and that i ask for forgiveness if i am breaking some horrible information to any one who did not, the forestbeyond my little patch of earth is a little bit unsavory. It can be dark. It may be a bit damaging.Don’t recommend going out on my own. It has been overtaking our temple for the final hundred years,and not too long ago has breached the walls again. SAM: So your loved ones is trying to fix that? TALIESIN: The final one to depart was once my sister. Shewent east. LIAM: Now it’s simply you.TALIESIN: Now it’s just me. It can be not much to holddown at this point. ASHLY: Why do you stay? TALIESIN: honestly, since it is a littledangerous for a lone person to leave. I figured i’d sit down right here with a kettle and look ahead to anyone tocome alongside, and maybe see if i will make my means out of here and figure out what’s been taking place inthis location. LIAM: well, you are double lucky. SAM: this is exceptional. So you don’t need to assess inevery night time, and be here to punch in and punch out? You might leave whenever you wish to have? TALIESIN: I could depart every time i would like, definite.MARISHA: Is there a watering process, or can youput it on a timer if you’re no longer going to be here? SAM: A drip-line? TALIESIN: that is a particularly just right concept. I don’t… Imean, in the event you guys in a serious rush, should you would help i am definite we would determine– MARISHA: possibly we’re in a rush; possibly after. LIAM: Herr Clay, we’re coping with atime-touchy problem. You might be watching for a segue out of this crisis you’re in? TALIESIN: Mmm. ASHLY: I think love it’s simplest reasonable to warn you: ifyou were to return with us, we would be asking you to enter a obstacle that’s no longer very dependable. TALIESIN: Are you inviting me to return with you? SUMALEE: yes, very a lot. ASHLY: Oh, yeah, sorry– did we not– SAM: We got here here seeking help in a mission thatwe’re about to head on.TALIESIN: that is great. You’re lucky I camealong, then. That is going to determine quite good. MARISHA: good, we came to you. TALIESIN: good, you are lucky that I stayed righthere so that you simply intercepted me, on account that if I had wandered off ten, 15 ft this will likely have neverhappened. LIAM: Herr Clay, we should be very honest withyou. We’re meaning to do excellent by means of humans who deserve it. A younger one. Excellent persons. However we aregoing to do very complicated industry tonight or tomorrow. TALIESIN: good, I do not know if I think thatanyone deserves anything, but i don’t like cages, and i’m fairly– MARISHA: You do not need a precise penchant orsympathy closer to persons who consume babies, do you? TALIESIN: That seems a little bit detailed.I am mostlyinterested in looking to deal with the typical order of the sector and nature itself. ASHLY: Does murder become on that checklist? TALIESIN: have you ever ever been in nature? Sure.Violence is incredibly traditional. ASHLY: Tight. SUMALEE: No, the humans we are after have doneterrible matters. They have got upset the steadiness of nature a lot via what they have got performed. They do notdeserve to reside. Please come with us. I have an notion. If that you would be able to include us, might be a few of thefirbolgs from my tribe can come help you right here afterwards– can help hold the temple afterwards. TALIESIN: well, I have no idea about deserve, but Ithink there is continuously somewhere there may be a plant that wishes some compost, and i am completely happy to makesome more if it will make folks glad.MARISHA: was once that you announcing you are willing tokill persons and put them within the ground to make compost?! SAM: I believe so. TALIESIN: You obtained plenty of aggression. You bought alot of anger. MARISHA: Oh man, you’re seeing me at a relativelycalm moment, certainly. LIAM: Welcome to The Mighty Nein. TALIESIN: there may be simplest– MARISHA: don’t overthink it. TALIESIN: okay! SAM: do you know Pumat Sol, by any danger? ASHLY: Nott! SAM: What? TALIESIN: Is that a time of plant? SAM: All correct, then no. No, I simply needed to ask. TALIESIN: I’ve definitely already packed; i’ll goget my matters. SAM: What?! Wait, what would we owe you for this? LIAM: Do you require something? TALIESIN: I do; I could ask for it later.SAM: money? LIAM: you’ll be able to have it. SUMALEE: Firbolgs don’t have cash. LIAM: you’ll be able to have it. SAM: Tea? TALIESIN: i admire this one. I’ll go get my greenbeetle armor. SAM: What? SUMALEE: (excited gasp) i have no longer come throughout afirbolg with inexperienced beetle armor! TALIESIN: thanks. My sister made it; i am veryproud of her. MATT: it is a chitinous-looking steel breastplatethat has a rather pearlescent turquoise green-blue tint to it that seems to shift in thelight. TALIESIN: I get a enormous, knotted, wet-watching stickthat is blanketed in lichen. The armor can be protected in lichen. It’s a large developing, residing wetthing. It has a giant crimson amethyst rock on the prime of the employees. I get just a little shield also madeout of beetle. LIAM: Motherfucking druid. MARISHA: (whispering) Fungal armor! TALIESIN: (sighs) give me a minute. Simply going towalk round once, take it in.SAM: If the thing he needs from us is our blood orsomething, shouldn’t we know that prematurely? We should find out what he needs from us earlier than wejust blindly agree to this. What if he desires Keg? LIAM: (whispering) we are going to determine that out. SAM: Some style of, like, concubine thing? I don’tknow! What if he is creepy or freaky like that! ASHLY: i am kind of into that. SAM: quite? ASHLY: i’m now not choosy. SAM: Wow. MARISHA: Your blood– you bought some to spare. Youcan get more of it. That is how your physique works. SAM: What?! SUMALEE: He does not seem freaky to me at all. Heseems very first-rate.Like a normal firbolg. SAM: (warily) okay. TALIESIN: All proper. I am equipped to depart. This isgoing to be a little much, but I consider i can do it. I’m ready. MARISHA: hiya Clay? Did you bury Tyriel Colsalahere? TALIESIN: Casala? MARISHA: Yeah, him. That is what I mentioned. TALIESIN: What did you consider you had been drinking? MARISHA: (accented) Casala? TALIESIN: Yeah. That is very close. It is excellent. It’salways worth making an attempt. MARISHA: have been you round whilst you buried him? TALIESIN: Casala household, I consider we have eight intheir iteration; I was simplest here for the last two. MARISHA: All correct. LIAM: So! Let me inform you in regards to the murderers weare coping with. SAM: whilst we walk. MARISHA: vigour walking? ASHLY: Yep. MATT: All correct. Making your trek again to theforest. Are you helming this as well? LIAM: First, there used to be the dinosaurs. (laughter) SUMALEE: could I helm it with Clay? TALIESIN: Caduceus. Caduceus Clay. That you could call meClay. SUMALEE: Caduceus.LIAM, MARISHA, and SAM: Deuces! SUMALEE: Deuces Clay. SAM: it’s decided. TALIESIN: i have been attempting to not exhibit you thisart for 2 weeks now. MATT: Caduceus, are you wanting to support? Or Nila,I feel, is asking in your aid in fording this woodland, as you will have slightly more experience. TALIESIN: definite! MATT: So make your survival investigate with capabilities. TALIESIN: k. SAM: where are we going? Again to town, or straightto the– ASHLY: Oh yeah.Can we wish to go and take a look at to getsome Taskers on our part? We have now a healer now, but we still shouldn’t have– SUMALEE: 21. MATT: 14 and a 14. SUMALEE: I bought 14 and 14. MATT: it is up to you guys. SUMALEE: i do not believe we want them. ASHLY: you don’t think we’d like to any extent further help? MARISHA: We perhaps all correct. SAM: we do not even comprehend what he does! ASHLY: i am with Nott! SAM: he’s a firbolg, yeah, but… Whats up, Mr. Clay?I’m going to shoot Beau with my crossbow. TALIESIN: that does not look like a very goodidea. SAM: Oh, I overlooked. (laughter) MATT: (arrow whizzing away) SAM: 12. MARISHA: Yeah, no. SAM: Sorry, I was just going to scan if he couldreally heal you.MARISHA: The fuck?! SAM: i’m going to shoot once more with my bonus motion! That’sa natural 20. (laughter) MATT: Go forward and roll damage. TALIESIN: you’re making me work out how to do this. SUMALEE: do not fear, i will remedy them, too. SAM: no longer a sneak attack, seeing that she was watching.Oh boy. That’s ten, however it’s a crit. Does that do anything? MATT: well, you double the cube that you simply rolled. SAM: k, so that is 12 plus 4 is 16. MATT: you are taking 16 facets of piercing damage,Beau. MARISHA: i am going to check out to seize it. MATT: okay, go for it. MARISHA: k, I roll a d10. MATT: Roll a d10. MARISHA: A ten! Plus my monk degree, proper? Whichis 5.MATT: I feel so. Is that what it says rightthere? LIAM: So just one hit point? SAM: simply the tip. MARISHA: 1d10 plus eight. Oh, it’s my monk levelplus my proficiency bonus, so no damage. MATT: It goes for proper underneath where theclavicle and the neck meet and catches it right there. SAM: Oh, but with this crossbow, after I roll anatural 20, it shoots an additional one instantly. MATT: that is proper! SAM: Do I ought to roll for that one? MATT: You have got to roll to assault. SAM: that is a 23 to hit. MATT: Go forward and roll harm on that one.SAM: Eight. MATT: What happens is you pull again to fire, andas it will get equipped to move forward and lengthen it looks like another bolt slips up into it accidentallyand it fires two in a row. Beau catches one and is like "Ugh, ow!" and there is a 2nd one that’sjammed right into the distance between two ribs. ASHLY: What the hell, Nott! SAM: to begin with, that used to be cool. And this wascool! MARISHA: And third of all, that was a killingblow! SAM: Now, do your factor! MARISHA: You might fucking kill me! TALIESIN: Is she continuously like this? This seems kindof extreme.SUMALEE: this is probably the most severe I’ve ever seenher. SAM: Do your thing! MARISHA: i’m preserving this bolt, that is mine now. SAM: okay. MARISHA: I rip the other one out. Yeah! I putthat, and i’m keeping this one, too! ASHLY: Keg is aroused. TALIESIN: Come here. All proper, and that i get in thereand i’ll do treatment Wounds and there may be going to be somewhat little bit of lichen that grows on thewound really rapidly. MARISHA: don’t infect me! TALIESIN: it can be best. Do I roll for that? MATT: Yeah, it’s a d8 plus your wisdom modifier.The wound seems to shut as you watch this– TALIESIN: Six aspects of injury– six facets ofhealing.MATT: You go up by means of six. You watch as this brightred-red coloured lichen, mossy fabric, seems to return out of the wound and shut it after which turngray, break free, and crumble off. The place it is, the wound appears to have closed and healed over,like weeks of cure have long gone with the aid of. MARISHA: okay, this shit’s dope. SAM: you’re welcome. ASHLY: frequently a different approach we would havedemonstrated that, Nott. TALIESIN: It felt very– MARISHA: That wasn’t for you. By no means mind. SUMALEE: they may be able to be unusual, however they’re good. TALIESIN: truthfully, it can be been see you later due to the fact that I’vebeen around any one, I simply do not need been in a position to tell. MATT: In making your trip back towardShadycreek Run, the sun does set phase approach by means of your trip. The forest goes dark, nearly pitchblack. Now, I believe all of you however Caleb have some style of darkvision.At this factor, thecrickets start coming out very loudly, the far-off sound of skittering and animal actions throughbrush and dry leaves trap the external of your peripheral. You control to stop every so often,as Nila puts her hand up, listening and smelling for some thing local. Are you guys continuing at afast p.C., or are you attempting to be stealthy? ASHLY: well, did we make a decision what we’re doing? MARISHA: I consider we have been going to head straightthere. ASHLY: We’re going straight to the Shepherds? MARISHA: it is on the best way. LIAM: We did not quite talk about; we gotdistracted. MATT: that’s real. Are you guys heading again toShadycreek, or are you heading straight to the sour Nest? SAM: Is it on the way in which? MARISHA: it can be on the way.I say we as a minimum stopby and scout it. SAM: If it can be roughly on the way then yeah, wecan at least swing through. MATT: it’s going to add an hour or so as to go intoShadycreek. Pretty much this is Shadycreek Run at the backside of the woodland and you could have traveled, fromyour point of view, far northwest to get to the area the place you met Caduceus.You are now heading backdown and the sour Nest is on the northeastern side of the city, just external of it, so you’ve got toscoot and ricochet off. SAM: So we might have got to go by way of the town simply toget there? MATT: No, you would go straight to it by way of theforest, however it depends upon what you want to do. If you’re going straight there or if you are wantingto skim by means of Shadycreek, it is your choice.MARISHA: How long after nightfall has it been? MATT: The solar set. With that roll you made, you’llbe arriving at Shadycreek Run at about 10:00pm. LIAM: we’re going to to find a person, spur of themoment, inform them to come with us out to the woods? To do a bit of dark business? MARISHA: Are you being facetious? I can’t inform. LIAM: No, I have no idea if that’s a just right notion, Idon’t like our options on the second, any of them relatively.I feel like we wouldn’t have– we are onemore person than after we received our asses surpassed to us on the avenue, and we inspiration we had the upperhand then. Now we have another, that is higher, but when we go to town and we discover a couple ofne’er-do-wells who’ll work for coin, we are convincing them to come with us right away, intothe woods.Into the woods. SAM: Into the woods and out of the woods? TALIESIN: That stands out as the hope, I assume, you’dleave the woods if you went into the woods. I mean, you don’t simply want to sit down there. I mean,that is what I do, however i am not sure that used to be rather a great selection, so, yeah, huh.SAM: Are you talking to us? TALIESIN: i’m just considering out loud. I’ve had afew years to just think out loud. SAM: How old are you? MARISHA: what number of seasons old are you? TALIESIN: Been about 100, provide or take. SAM: but there is 4 seasons? Or is it threeseasons up here? I have no idea. MARISHA: 25. SAM: he’s between 25 and one hundred. TALIESIN: That’ll do. LIAM: What do you feel? MARISHA: i am nonetheless afraid if we roll intoShadycreek– as soon as once more, just stating what we’re: two firbolgs, a goblin, and then some style ofacceptable-looking persons and any person with a fame. Good, by society’s specifications. ASHLY: quite a lot of color simply obtained thrown. MARISHA: look, come on! LIAM: If we do that, the three of us would do thetalking, naturally.MARISHA: i am simply announcing, we can draw attentionto ourselves, after which we could go around asking persons to kill the Iron Shepherds, and that mightdraw more awareness to ourselves in a town that it feels the Iron Shepherds variety of run. Or at leasthave a better foothold in it than we do. ASHLY: How would this be distinctive? That’s myquestion. Yet another character, sure. A healer? Definite. However– LIAM: well, we could take them at night, which wedid now not do earlier than. A few of them would be awake, quite often not all of them. We had the detail ofsurprise before, we expectantly have it now. ASHLY: they’re on home turf. LIAM: house turf is huge.SAM: can i just say, again, i do not provide a shitabout Ophelia’s request or The Gentleman’s present. I just need to get all of our friends and get out.If we will kill them, exceptional, but if our purpose is to not kill them it makes this a much less complicated mission. MARISHA: do you know Ophelia, Clay? TALIESIN: No.MARISHA: Sorry, you simply had a face like yourecognized. TALIESIN: I needed to believe a little bit bit about it,however no. LIAM: you recognize, Nott, I believe you. The mostimportant factor is getting the humans who’re in that basement. The essential factor. You’vealways obtained to improvise. SAM: yes. ASHLY: So you’re saying go in with the plan ofkilling them and then switch it up if want be? LIAM: the only thing that I believe is known istaking care of the men and women on that wall, someone external. I will ship Frumpkin around to look ifthere are extra than just these two, then we will have choices to make. We can ought to send inFrumpkin again or our new friend here. Considered one of us, one of them and make a plan from there.That isall we know now. We need to do anything and i believe a bit on facet with our numbers, however I ammaybe extra on aspect by using the ticking clock. MARISHA: k. SAM: Let’s swing via the baddies’ condo and justsee what is going on on? MARISHA: anybody in distinctive consider super stronglyabout going and getting extra aid? Should we put it to a vote? SUMALEE: Do you raise a scent bag? TALIESIN: A what? ASHLY: a lot disappointment. SAM: She sniffs a handbag every time she wants tomake a resolution. ASHLY: it’s worked out up to now. SUMALEE: it’s full of things from nature thatI find enormous. TALIESIN: That looks like a rather good ideaactually.I must start doing that. SUMALEE: It helps me so much. TALIESIN: What a great way to make a determination. MARISHA: What does your smell bag say? Can we goand we get extra people or can we go to the house? SUMALEE: I do not must assess it. No smell checknecessary. MARISHA: Make a scent verify. SUMALEE: I just wish to go. It is going to be k. Wehave two firbolgs. MARISHA: I imply, she’s so convincing. ASHLY: Nila, i love your enthusiasm, but again,they’re on dwelling turf, they’ve extra folks than I idea, extra potential than I notion.I mean, wehire a couple of Taskers. I comprehend it’s not ideal, but when– MARISHA: All right, new plan. We cut up the social gathering! SAM: No! Terrible thought. MARISHA: half of go to the residence, the opposite 1/2 golook for extra aid and then we meet you. SAM: How’s the half at the condominium going to do? MARISHA: Watch. SAM: No. MARISHA: All correct. SAM: Let’s swing by the condominium and examine it out.Ifthere’s a raging get together, we will just continue on to city. If it appears lifeless, maybe we’ll do a littlerecon. If the recon goes good, perhaps we will do a little insertion. ASHLY: Are you describing a date proper now? SAM: The insertion goes well, perhaps we go consistent. TALIESIN: I do not know what any of that suggests. SUMALEE: you’re going to get used to it. I simply laughalong now. TALIESIN: All proper. ASHLY: appear, they’re your persons, so i will depart itto you guys, but i do not love the percentages. SUMALEE: i know since of your advantage, if wecan draw extra of them outside, we will be able to stand a greater hazard. We will be able to have more vigour than youhad last time.MARISHA: Let’s go to the house. SAM: We’re just going to watch. MARISHA: Yeah. SAM: we will see what it’s like at night soif we have got to come again the next day to come night, we’ll be aware of what to anticipate. Are there more guards at night time? Wedon’t be aware of, they might have six more dudes who come up there at night. MARISHA: Let’s go. We’re losing time justtalking. SAM: we’ll simply look. MARISHA: we will go appear. MATT: k, so that you head straight to The sour Nest?All right. Over the following couple of hours, you make your means, scooting versus the extra southerndirection you were visiting, heading eastward. Carefully making your manner on the outskirts of thenorthern part of North Clover of Shadycreek Run, i want you all to make stealth checks.MARISHA: Shit. MATT: disadvantage for you, Keg, sadly. ASHLY: Fuck. TALIESIN: Tonight, am i able to simply politely ask theforest to simply supply us a circular this time, just in case? I wish to talk to a few trees, see ifthey’d be all right simply giving us slightly passage. MATT: k. Roll a knowledge examine. TALIESIN: All right. Wisdom save or knowledge check? MATT: knowledge examine. TALIESIN: All right. 21. MATT: You bend in quietly, inserting your handagainst one of the most neighborhood trees, the bark being bloodless and reasonably soft from the moisture of thesnow that had melted from the day before.You think the oppressive experience of the crucial nature thatencompasses the Savalierwood supply manner ever so faintly. ASHLY: Wait. Probably a stupid proposal. You guys cantalk to plants. Crops are neutral. What if we lead them into the woods? SAM: What? SUMALEE: Now you’re pondering like I used to be. I didn’thave that exact proposal– ASHLY: The Iron Shepherds. We could trap them intothe woods. SAM: after which what? ASHLY: We battle them in there. SUMALEE: we are able to have the vegetation entangle them. ASHLY: I have no idea, it would be a backup if thisplan goes south, in the event that they wake up or some thing. But when they may be able to speak to the vegetation– the woods areanyone’s recreation. They’d be combating different creatures, not simply us. LIAM: however what’s it that lures the Shepherds outof their gap? SAM: They is not going to go away. MARISHA: I’ve got fireworks. SUMALEE: i will be able to put a stink bomb inside.Reallystinky, now not like what you call my stink pouch. LIAM: as a way to put them within the courtyard, it willnot frequently put them in the woods. SAM: we’d have to take one in all theirs, take Lorenzoor whatever. They’d ought to come after us. There could be no intent for them to leave. ASHLY: Do i know if Lorenzo is a loyal person,like would he provide or would he just let any one die in the event that they got taken? MATT: fine that you would be able to inform, he is now not a "go away noman behind" type man or woman. ASHLY: k. MARISHA: He isn’t? MATT: he is not. ASHLY: however he’s a vengeful form of man or woman? MATT: he is absolutely keen on an eye fixed for a watch. ASHLY: If it goes south, and we manipulate to kill oneof them, he could chase us.LIAM: proper. SAM: Or maybe no longer. ASHLY: Or maybe not. It could be a backup. SAM: No, it can be good. LIAM and MARISHA: Let’s go. ASHLY: Oh, stealth exams, correct. MATT: Stealth checks. TALIESIN: First stealth examine. The place’s my stealth?Seven. SAM: 26. ASHLY: Seven. LIAM: Ten. MARISHA: 12. SUMALEE: 20. MATT: k. ASHLY: These are such unhealthy stealth assessments. MATT: due to you speaking with nature, I amignoring some of the lowest stealth rolls. ASHLY: only one? MATT: Even nonetheless, you technique the outskirts ofThe sour Nest. The clouds of the night are broken here and there, the very darkened nightoccasionally broken with the aid of the errant moonbeam that manages to sweep by means of the open grove where thisfortress used to be built. The canopy itself cleared out, leaving it open for the occasional peek of whitethrough the clouds.The same perimeter wall you see being slowly proficient throughout by using two guardsdressed in the identical hooded attire as those that you earlier saw. As you noticed as well bringingthe three carts northward from the Glory Run street. As you begin to approach, Keg, regrettably,manages to step on a hornet’s nest. It crunches below your foot, and, for a brief second, youinhale very sharply realizing this acquainted sound– this is not the first hornet’s nest you will have steppedinto. Thankfully, a moment passes, no hornets. It was deserted and had fallen from a tree.However,you do hear a voice on the wall say, "hey?" ASHLY: Shit. SAM: How a ways? MATT: About 70 ft from you. LIAM: I consider we might be doing this now, so beprepared for it. ASHLY: i do not wish to put Frumpkin in risk, butcould we pretend it was Frumpkin, if he shoots out or some thing? LIAM: Frumpkin shoots up into the air and bouncesoff a tree. MATT: (hoots) "Oh, there you are again, yousucker." he’s going to raise a crossbow once more. ASHLY: Oh no! Oh my god, if I kill any one again! (laughter) MATT: that may be a thirteen to hit. What’s Frumpkin’sarmor category as an owl? LIAM: i have an owl here, it is– That hits. ASHLY: Oh! SAM: Burch-icide! ASHLY: Shit! MATT: that is 4 facets of piercing injury toFrumpkin. LIAM: Frumpkin is alive! SAM: What?! MATT: how many hit elements does the owl have? LIAM: good, it is 1d4 plus one, and that i rolled itlast time, and that i rolled a 4, so it’s 1d4 plus one. MATT: So it can be 5? This owl takes a crossbow boltto the chest, and is like (flapping).You hear the identical voice go, "Fucking hell! What– Phil! Ifucking shot an owl, it is nonetheless flying! I hate "this forest! It is bullshit!" You hear this voice alittle extra away go, "(laughing) You suck!" he is like, "Shut up!" hundreds a different bolt into itand starts– You see now’s actively looking for the owl to finish it off and regain his delight. LIAM: I instructed him to go down low to the ground.Yeah. MARISHA: are you able to bring him back? I sort of wantthat arrow. LIAM: Ja, i will be able to, but I poof into Frumpkin’ssenses. Do I hear something besides Phil and mystery Man? MATT: Make a perception check with talents. LIAM: Ja, because of the hearing. MATT: Yeah. LIAM: Oh, that’s just right on the primary roll. The firstroll is excellent, so it’s 18. MATT: 18? Okay. Listening to the 2 men banter backand forth a little bit, the errant prodding that Phil seems to be giving to this man or woman.Beyondthat, there is the crickets within the air, there’s different nocturnal birds which can be commencing to rousefrom their slumber to move trying to find the night time. From the direction of The sour Nest, Frumpkinglances up and can see, on the second ground, there are two openings you had seen earlier on thesecond flooring of this fortress, on each facet, and there seems to be an awfully faint bit of firelight,and a shadow that passes by means of one, the other, so there is somebody relocating on the second flooring ofthis– LIAM: Who’s within the building? MATT: Of the within of it, sure. LIAM: ok. I snap my fingers, and Frumpkinvanishes, leaving the bolt where he was, and then I do it again. He’s right here. MATT: All correct. Very wounded, however alive. LIAM: may just I borrow one in all your goodberries? SUMALEE: definitely. LIAM: is this one? Okay. SUMALEE: you may also take– I consider there are fouror five left.LIAM: i will take 4. SUMALEE: Please. LIAM: One, two, three, 4. You can also preserve thatone. Thanks. MATT: Frumpkin happily eats from the goodberries. ASHLY: And he is better? MATT: Yeah, the injuries shut slowly, the magic ofthe goodberries remedy the crossbow bolt over eventually. ASHLY: Oh, god. Sorry, guys. SAM: we can probably use this. We would make adistraction owl that he will center of attention on, and we would take him out from afar. MARISHA: Do you’ve gotten an illusion you can dothat? It is a just right thought. Might be we should’ve performed that to begin with. LIAM: We might potentially preserve relocating now, if wewant to, considering that– ASHLY: We got the lay of the land? LIAM: Yeah, we all know there may be two on the wall, maybethat’s their M.O., every night there may be two on the walls.Men and women are wide awake inside. What’s the hourright now? MATT: i might say at this point it is almost 10:30. LIAM: 10:33, yeah. TALIESIN: that’s very distinctive. LIAM: Yeah, it is. TALIESIN: Are you just going for that, or is thatgoing to mean something? LIAM: Oh, i am sorry, 10:34 now. TALIESIN: In a minute, it’ll be 10:35. LIAM: Yeah, roughly. TALIESIN: How about now? LIAM: it can be still 10:34. TALIESIN: but it surely’s toward 10:35? LIAM: i’m no longer going to do that right now. We havea choice to make. Does not look any higher or worse from the external, however we are external theonion. Are we going back to town to get a little bit more muscle, or are we making a go of it here? MARISHA: All right. Who votes for more muscle?Let’s put it to a vote.LIAM: well, how successfully could we silentlykill these two on the wall? You may be good at one. SAM: Silently, we can kill these two, I feel,very comfortably. So long as you do not move. ASHLY: I is not going to. I’m staying right right here. LIAM: but pitch it to me. How? You, i know– SAM: Can take this guy effortlessly, if– Do you fightpeople from afar? TALIESIN: no longer quietly. SAM: How about you, Nila? Do you have anythingthat can shoot from afar? SUMALEE: Lightning, I instructed you. SAM: well, some thing that is not like, "whats up, appear,we’re right here, we’ve got bought lightning!" anything– SUMALEE: Poison Spray. SAM: k. I mean, that is– SUMALEE: Ten toes.No, that is now not from very some distance. SAM: we have now Beau. She’s quiet. I would distractone at the same time you go up and simply (crack). MARISHA: How tall is the wall? How would I be ableto get on the wall? MATT: The wall is set 12 to fifteen ft. It’s notterribly tall. It is about 5 ft wide. MARISHA: Are we going for walks the perimeter? If we’redoing a perimeter walk, I need to seem and spot if there are any branches and trees that would begrowing practically the wall, that I might– MATT: You do be aware of, from earlier looking overit, that they’ve cleared out the wooded area about ten feet from the outer wall especially to preventanyone from mountain climbing over into the distance.SAM: i will be able to shoot one with a crossbow. SUMALEE: i’ve a sling, too. SAM: ok. LIAM: Yeah, however we must conclude the jobinstantly. MARISHA: Yeah, we’ve obtained to do both at the sametime, ideally. There’s bought to be a staff one and a group two on the fellow. I’ve acquired my throwing darts,however they’re not super first-rate. ASHLY: Your lightning, it would not make a stormaround it, right? It is just a lightning bolt. We couldn’t– SAM: controlled lightning? ASHLY: Make it look like it’s a storm, rather thanan assault. SAM: good, hear, you can distract him with theactual Frumpkin whilst I shoot. It would not have to be an illusory Frumpkin.I will still shoot. LIAM: would also shoot him from the darkish when he’snot anticipating it to occur. SAM: that is real. MARISHA: also, mostly possibly it can be just a stormynight right here within the wooded area. TALIESIN: This Phil have got to be a quite unhealthy individual ifyou’re– ASHLY: Yeah, he’s a real dick. SAM: Phil’s the worst. ASHLY: Are they inside eyesight of every different? I’massuming so. MATT: they are, yes. SAM: i will be able to, if you guys– i will shoot. I got ashoot-y thing. I will shoot them. MARISHA: k, here’s what i’ll advocate.We split up: three on one man, three on the other. We will do the plan that worked when we were doingit on children, and we failed to comprehend we had been doing it on children. Me and you could throw up a bottle rocket.A good way to be the signal. We attack both of the blokes whilst, two distinct aspects.SAM: that is loud. We would simply do Message. We cansend each other a message that’s silent. MARISHA: but when it’s loud, and so they’re each deadafterwards. LIAM: No, the men and women inside will hear it. No, weneed silence. SUMALEE: I might create– Oh, had been you going tosay whatever? TALIESIN: i know i am new here, and you’veobviously all received some type of hierarchy going right here of how you’re employed this out. SAM: Caleb’s in charge. TALIESIN: That makes sense. I believe my questionwould be: what are you fairly right here for? On the grounds that regularly, if i am watching at a complex challenge,I simply suppose about what it’s that I fairly want, after which i’m going and that i do this.MARISHA: We need to homicide each person within andrescue the men and women who are trapped. SAM: We wish to rescue the people who aretrapped. TALIESIN: well, I was once going to assert that in case you hadto put one above the opposite. For those who get one thing, you get to do it. SAM: Rescue the men and women in the basement. TALIESIN: So you might have received to get inside and out of thebasement. That appears to be the dialog then, is getting in and out of the basement. I’m sure,inevitably, you’re going to kill a entire bunch of humans in the system of that, but as lengthy asyou’re curious about where you are going and what you’re doing, that may help with this wantonviolence against Phil, who i’m sure is a terrible man or woman.He shot an owl. SAM: Phil’s friend did. ASHLY: He proposal it was once humorous, although, so he’sstill a dick. TALIESIN: No, that ain’t funny. MARISHA: All proper, let’s break up up, take theseguys out. LIAM: No, it is too early. We have to wait. MARISHA: Jesus! LIAM: it’s 10:35 at night time. We need to wait untilthey’re asleep. ASHLY: name it 10:37 at this point. LIAM: No. MARISHA: We wait an hour and get into function. MATT: k. You guys wait an hour to get intoposition. MARISHA: We watch the passing shadows in entrance ofthe windows. MATT: ok, you keep an out, and you do watch asthe two of them– they may be now not flawlessly in step with each other, and the 2nd flooring of thecomplex does block their imaginative and prescient of every other when they’re on whole opposite facets of the wall.However usually certainly one of them will be faster than the opposite, and they’re going to yell to the other, and so they’llgo see each other from the opposite aspects.LIAM: How some distance is Beauregard from me correct now? MATT: How some distance is Beauregard from you proper now? LIAM: Did you wander far from me? MARISHA: No, i am proper next to you. LIAM: (whispers) Would you instead wait until theyare drowsing of their beds earlier than we did this? MARISHA: Yeah. I used to be simply looking to transfer thingsalong.

MATT: 23, okay. You are taking a moment and there aretwo special locks which might be chained; one on each aspect which can be closed. The one that is nearest toyou, handy ample. The one on the reverse aspect, you ought to pull out one in every of your steel hooksthat slips through an area within the timber and control to tug it up on the aspect a little bit bit.You’reessentially reverse-identifying it with two hooked picks from the reverse side. It takes you alittle longer, until finally it hangs. LIAM: I omit being a rogue day-to-day. SAM: to this point, the whole thing’s going great– ASHLY: Why did you say that? SAM: And we must count on that everything willcontinue to head best. ASHLY: Oh god, k. LIAM: I pull out the wire and get it between myhands and whisper as much as Beauregard: Are we good? Is the whole thing just right up there from what you will see?Are we excellent? MARISHA: Coast appears clear. I have no idea why I didthis with my fingers. ASHLY: okay, now we have now a alternative. We would justtry to head downstairs and get your friends. LIAM: there may be one other door over there. Let’s getto that door. ASHLY: The back door?

MATT: This door or this door. Your choice. ASHLY: that is the front? MATT: that is the front. TALIESIN: or you might meet me on the nook,due to the fact i’m running across the– Oh, i am on the outer.I am not within the middle field but? MATT: Technically, Beau, you guys are walkingperimeter on the outside wall. The leisure of you cats are presently, pretty much, over that manner.You guys have simply passed through the gate on that part, where it can be open and allowing you into thecourtyard. SAM: Caleb, I trust you. Where will we go, back– LIAM: there isn’t a magic on the entrance door, correct? MATT: you’re still focusing as you come inside? LIAM: it is like ten minutes, so I’ve usually gotfour or five minutes left. MATT: Yeah, no magic that you just observe on the frontdoor of the fortress. LIAM: I consider that we will have to reduce across the sideand go to the again.They’re going to generally be expecting that much less. ASHLY: That leads into the kitchen, too. Thereshouldn’t be any individual in the kitchen. LIAM: Yeah, ok. SAM: ok, however wait. Can we get Beau and Mr. Claydown right here as well to help?

SAM: Oh sure, you might use that spell that youused prior.LIAM: That ability you needed to make Beauregard– MARISHA: it’s inside 30 ft of her, so yeah, Ithink she should be good? However I believe you need to forged it on the humans within 30 toes of you. SAM: Recast! MATT: For the period, every creature you choosewithin 30 feet of you. LIAM: so you could drop it and do it once more. SAM: Wait, for the length– MARISHA: For the duration, each creature youchoose inside 30 ft? LIAM: Who has it now? TALIESIN: I suppose it is so long as they’re within30 feet, it can be like a discipline and that you can say yea or nay.That’s my view. MATT: It would not say on the second of casting youhave to pick; just that for the length you decide upon. So, my interpretation, i’d allowsomeone to step into the radius, and also you might then pick. SAM: k, so we all know better. We know you don’thave to forged it. ASHLY: i’m going to snuggle up to Nila. SUMALEE: I decide on Keg. LIAM: Let’s tippy-toe across the back door. SAM: ok, let’s go! MATT: All correct, everybody who’s now making theirway across the again, make a different stealth determine.ASHLY: Am I at drawback now? Nonetheless?

Going previous the barrel pile whereyou had beforehand made your manner in and out via owl the previous day. As you guys scoot earlier, youhear the front door of the power (thudding) (creaking). It opens ever so faintly to theinside, and a determine friends out, having it sounds as if heard something. MARISHA: we don’t see that? SAM: No, we already went– LIAM: No, these two. We requested them in the event that they sawanything proper before we went. MARISHA: I did not see that. MATT: You see a determine poke the pinnacle out and lookcuriously. TALIESIN: Sorry!

MATT: shield looks earlier and closes the door.ASHLY: Oh my god. I’m going to have an ulcer afterthis recreation! TALIESIN: Nah. MATT: You guys all proceed to the back of thefacility. ASHLY: besides Keg. SUMALEE: No, you might be with me. We’re together. MATT: You guys are on the back door. LIAM: i’ll wager that i’ve two or threeminutes left on discover Magic, so does the door look away from that? MATT: The door seems to be clear of magic. TALIESIN: Who do I see on the entrance door, by way of theway, particularly? What did he look like? I have no idea who he was, but– MATT: From what which you can appear at, it appeared to behumanoid, it was hard to tell at this distance with the little little bit of firelight you noticed. Hood wasdown. Brief, black hair, appeared a little sallow. Younger, however typically looked older than they had been– MARISHA: Kill it! Kill it! ASHLY: Aww, damn. MATT: Nah, that will were cool. LIAM: It was once on my iPad! MATT: I will have to have run with it. You’re at theback door. LIAM: good fortune, luck, good fortune. Is there any hole betweenthe bottom of the door and the floor that Frumpkin might match by way of right now? MATT: there’s a very faint bit that a spidercould fit although, yes.LIAM: In you go, chum. Maintain on to my hand,please. ASHLY: We would do a hand chain. SAM: you are now not with us. TALIESIN: Aww, rattling it. LIAM: Telepathically, I tell Frumpkin to crawl upthe different side of the door and go onto the ceiling. MATT: All correct. Frumpkin is now up, and there isa kitchen. TALIESIN: Sandwiches! SAM: What? MATT: there’s a kitchen, you can find there’s anoven. There appears to be a bunch of dirty dishes which have simply piled up and haven’t been washed ina whilst. There’s a route that goes to the proper and additional down this hallway, and there is a doorthat leads further in. LIAM: Nila failed to tell us something about a kitchenfrom her– MARISHA: Yeah, she did. MARISHA: The hallway down the proper is the one wewant to go to, if I bear in mind adequately. SUMALEE: With the trapdoor. MARISHA: With the trapdoor, yep. LIAM: well, that’s the place i will ship Frumpkinalong the ceiling. Then when he gets to a door, he can go down the door and underneath, if there is a hole,and then up the door.MATT: ok. That is through into this hallway,which currently ends in two extra doorways. This manner and that method. LIAM: Are all these doors so far the identical? Theyare unfastened? MATT: they’re unfastened. I imply, as far as smallgaps in between, very, very tiny. LIAM: A half-inch for Frumpkin? MATT: Yep. ASHLY: Would I be ready to inform him which approach togo? MATT: He wouldn’t be capable to listen to you. LIAM: i do not hear shit proper now. I’ll sendFrumpkin by means of the next gap.MATT: Which one? There may be two distinctive doorways. Thisway or this manner. LIAM: No, you can not tell me some thing. TALIESIN: here, have a laser pointer. SAM: here’s a laser pointer, Liam O’Brien. LIAM: i will do that one here. MATT: All proper. Frumpkin moves into this chamber,which unveils this chamber. On this chamber, you see a dining discipline of some kind, and also you see thereare two of the employed guards in the system of completing an evening drink. SAM: was it Phil and the other guy? MARISHA: Is it Phil? MATT: certainly one of them is Phil. One of them is theother guy. Looks like they’re having a nightcap. ASHLY: Are they inebriated? MATT: they have been drinking. You have no idea ifthey’re under the influence of alcohol. Frumpkin sees the 2 of them hushedly chatting to 1 other and drinking fromtankards. LIAM: i’ll have Frumpkin back away, beneath thecrack. MATT: ok. Make a stealth assess for Frumpkinbecause now you are in eyesight of– LIAM: he’s so little. He’s so small. MATT: i do know. LIAM: only one roll? That’s okay. Maintain on,every body.14.

Theyhave had simply adequate to drink where they did not see Frumpkin. LIAM: (singing) The Itsy Bitsy Spider. MATT: Frumpkin goes the place? LIAM: back under that door, and he will peeky-poounder the door he has now not checked yet. MATT: okay. That leads into a further chamber, ahallway, that continues down and then seems to open into an extra walkway. LIAM: Yeah, this door. This one here. MATT: Frumpkin goes and opens that one, whichleads into a further hallway, a very small chamber, and there are a few ordinary portions of driedgoods in the corners, and a wood trapdoor. LIAM: To the backside.SAM: Trapdoor to the backside? MATT: seems to be a trapdoor. LIAM: Any cracks which are a half-inch large, bigenough for a spider? MATT: No. LIAM: I take into account this. K. That’s a wall coveredby that paper there that you do not ought to discover, correct? MATT: that could be a wall, yes. LIAM: again out of this, i do know where i am. I willgo alongside the wall right here. Frumpkin will crawl on the wall. Oh, you can not see the place i am pointing. MATT: On the wall over here? LIAM: Yeah, and crawl around the nook and peekaround the corner into that coloured spot. MATT: k. Revealing that. It looks, and also you cansee this has been storage.Because Frumpkin entered, that is all kitchen storage, and lookingdown this hall– LIAM: this is too complex for me to mutter, soI’m not telling all people this. This is too difficult. MATT: that’s the gist of what you might have noticeable. SAM: Wow, that is the entire design, Frumpy. MATT: you do not know how so much of this may occasionally stay. SAM: definite completely satisfied we selected a spider! MARISHA: I take again mocking you for your choice. LIAM: i don’t hear something, and you are nowherenear me. What i’ll do is ship Frumpkin down this hallway, given that i didn’t go this manner but. MATT: Turning around this manner, you can find thespiral staircase, the very equal where you had in brief managed to circumvent Lorenzo earlier in theday, heading up to the 2d flooring. LIAM: I keep in mind this from her experiences, so I willcontinue Frumpkin up the steps.SAM: Up the stairs? Oh god, why? Why would you dothat? LIAM: Time is passing, on the grounds that he’s no longer thatquick. MATT: right as Frumpkin passes that way, this dooropens up, and one of the vital two guards heads this manner. A bit sloppy, but turns and– LIAM: we’ll make for the wall at that point. MATT: "Ew." He begins jogging up, and goes in totry and step on Frumpkin. LIAM: What does Frumpkin have got to do, armor type,right? MATT: Yeah, what’s Frumpkin’s armor classification? LIAM: Zwlf. MATT: With drawback. That’s 12. It goes aheadand stomps down. That is a success point.LIAM: He scurries away– No, he scurries up ontothe wall, up onto the ceiling. MATT: what’s the velocity for Frumpkin? LIAM: 20 toes. MATT: okay. The preserve is like, "Ugh. Good day, Phil?" (laughter) MATT: "What? What’s the situation?" "there may be afucking spider in right here." LIAM: there may be a trojan horse in this world, and that i gained’trest until he’s useless. TALIESIN: essentially the most practical factor I’ve ever– MATT: Heads back into the room and springs back withthese two metal tankards which are dinged up, and they each throwing them up to take a look at and smashthe spider. With that, the primary one misses and (clatters) down the stairs. LIAM: Matt, I have no idea if this will likely occur intime, however what I tell him to do telepathically, on the grounds that I will have to be close sufficient, 100 toes, is togo in here, through this door that’s open, and over the door and down the again, and as soon as he’s outof sight, i will poof him out, if that works.They might hit him earlier than it occurs. MATT: well, the first two slams, or tossing oftankards, clanging loudly, don’t hit. MARISHA: I inspiration it used to be going to blow ourcover. LIAM: it’s a spider! MATT: They each turn around and comply with like,"the place did it go?", "it can be this manner!" they usually both come again throughout the room, looking to follow whereFrumpkin went. LIAM: but he disappears in the back of the door. MATT: They both seem around like, "Shit. Ugh. Ican’t sleep now with that factor round right here. Keep "watching." that’s the final thing that Frumpkinhears earlier than vanishing. SAM: Oh boy. LIAM: That was wild. Okay. Sure. Oh, hello. Again.There may be two of them. I pull a wire out and i intention toward my neighbors on the horses. There’s two ofthem. Six seconds go by means of. There is two of them on the primary floor. What can we do? SAM: What can we do now? Will have to we go in? ASHLY: Do we have now any experience if their clangingdisturbed something? MATT: Make a notion verify.SAM: Did you see a method to downstairs? ASHLY: 14. MATT: you are listening correct now. You do not hearanything, but you’re additionally on the reverse part of where anybody else could be. So you have no idea. LIAM: I saw what the firbolg lady instructed us about.There is a trapdoor now not too a long way from us here. SAM: Why do not we go attempt to get right down to it? LIAM: (whispers) Ja, okay, that is just right. We haveto be very quiet. SUMALEE: There could also be murderers inside the trapdoor. LIAM: here’s what we do. Frumpkin, I takeFrumpkin. Oh, there’s Frumpkin. I place Frumpkin in your shoulder. SAM: sure? LIAM: You have to go on this door and i’m going totalk into your ear. I’ll keep Keg’s shoulder and i am going to speak into your ear andtell you which of them method to go to get you to the trapdoor. Okay, and also you ought to be very quiet. ASHLY: through your self? LIAM: Yeah, and see if that trapdoor is open. Ifit is, you will put my spider beneath and we will see what is going on.SAM: If the trapdoor is open? LIAM: If it’s unlocked. SAM: Oh, if it is unlocked. Okay, obtained it. LIAM: do not go in yourself right away, send inFrumpkin to appear. I can be looking at the entire time. SAM: All right.

Oh, oh wow. Ok,that used to be convenient. All proper, focal point up. ASHLY: Nott, watch out. SAM: You care about me? ASHLY: Yeah. LIAM: At every flip– hearken to me. At every turn,when that you can go left or correct, if Frumpkin, who will probably be resting on your ear, tickles the inside ofthe ear, it method go right. If nothing occurs, go left. SAM: inside of– tickle, proper. LIAM: Tickle means proper. SAM: Nothing, left. Liam eats farts. I am in a position. LIAM: you may have got it. SAM: acquired it. LIAM and SAM: Tickle manner proper.
