Soon after rejoining Thokk, Kaya began to hear whispers about greed and gold. Nobody else could hear them, but she swore they were coming from the still-slumbering Thokk. After waking him up, he grumpily emptied out his pockets. Amongst the other odds and ends were two coins stamped with Tiamat’s image. Picking them up Kaya declared that the whispering was coming from the coins. Nobody else heard anything, so despite warnings that the coins may be cursed, Thokk demanded to keep his loot. As far as he was concerned, coins were coins, and those coins were his. Before he pocketed them, though, Del made a quick rubbing, figuring that somebody in Greenest might recognize the coin.
With that mystery semi-solved, the adventurers looked at their captive. He was beginning to mumble in his sleep, but it was clear it was still going to be quite some time before he woke up and was lucid. Thokk was all for killing him, but Darrak talked him out of it. They untied their captive and retreated to their cave for a long rest.
20th Day of Kythorn
When they woke up the next morning, Thokk was long gone. The trip back to Greenest was mostly uneventful. They did run into a centaur, who told them that the raiders had headed to the west a 10-day ago (and that anybody with eyes could have seen that).
Upon their return, Governor Nighthill informed them that Leosin had left for Elturel, but not before buying them mounts and arranging for their stabling. (Kaya was able to switch her gear to that of a pack animal, since she had her magical elk.) Del and Thia also returned the jewelry they had discovered, which helped their reputation in town.
After a quick conference, the group decided to spend four days of downtime resting up. The drow needed to pay for a private suite so that they could avoid notice as much as possible and Kaya decided to join them to help bring down costs. The dwarves also decided to share a room, although they went with a cheaper option, planning to dine with the women in their private room. Everybody stayed at the Silver Pegasus.
21st Day of Kythorn
For the most part, everybody decided to split up during the day. Kaya made the same deal with the tanner as before: She worked for him for three days in order to use his shop for her own projects on the fourth day. She also went to the weaponry store and bought a dagger. Thoradin also paid a trip to the armorer and deposited money at the bank. (In the few days they were gone Ransom’s Vault had opened a branch in Greenest.) Darrak spent his time carousing. Thia shopped a bit at the general store and started training with the scimitar -- since she had one, she figured she should learn how to use it. Her trainer was a familiar face -- Kung Lao. Del did a little bit of shopping, but spent most of her day at the keep, asking about the dragon coin. Nobody had seen anything like it before or knew who to possibly ask. Disappointed, she decided to wait until she got to a bigger town.
22nd Day of Kythorn
This day was pretty similar to the one before. Most of the party shopped a little, Kaya worked for the tanner, and Thia continued her training. Thoradin and Del joined Darrak in his carousing. Del won a little and Thoradin won a lot, continuing to earn his legendary status in the town.
23rd Day of Kythorn
Everybody but Del decided that it was time to actually meet the horses Leosin had bought for them. Kaya named hers Blue, Thoradin called his Bob, Darrak’s was named Billy, and Thia named hers Star. Thoradin, Del, and Darrak continued to carouse. Del earned her expenses for the day, but the dwarves had a bit more excitement. First, Tana sought out Thoradin, slapping him in the face for not letting her know he was in town, loudly proclaimed he was dead to her, and then flounced out. Then, her brother, Zook, got in a brawl with Darrak, resulting in them both being tossed out of the tavern. Fun times were had by all.
24th Day of Kythorn
Knowing that they were heading out on the next day, the group made sure to wrap up their errands. Kaya made two whips and sold them to the armorer, along with her leather armor, and upgraded to studded leather armor. She also went to the bank and opened up an account. Thoradin, being Thoradin, spent his time carousing. Unfortunately for him, this time Maya showed up. All signs were showing that his first girlfriend in town had just become a stalker. His companions had a lot of fun with this, but Thoradin wasn’t nearly as thrilled. Darrak also spent his time carousing, but nothing exciting happened; he just earned his expenses for the day. Thia continued to train and bought some saddlebags. Del finally visited her horse, scoffed at everybody else’s wimpy names, and promptly called hers Killer. After buying some saddlebags, she spent the rest of the day carousing and earned her money back.
DM's Note: This section is much choppier than normal. We played almost two months ago, and it was a full month before anybody remembered to type anything in our log. Moving took up all of our mental energy.
