You are asked to be the special guests at the grand re-opening of Stonehome Treasures. You peruse the eclectic mix of mundane equipment, weapons, armor, and a smattering of magic items, a fierce woman confronts Salazar "What is wrong with you! All this galavanting around the land, saving cities, making money and what do you do? forget about your own family, you own blood, your own mother!" Looking past the anger and self-rightiousness on her face, you can certainly see the family resemblance. This must be Salazar's mother.

More terrified than any of you have seen him since the ordeal at Olorin's that purged his infernal taint, Salazar stammers, "Umm, errr, uhhh, Mom... Mom! It's, er... great to see you. Yeah, that's it, great. What, um, brings you to Overlook?"

Perhaps acquiring great power wasn't the only reason Salazar left Witchcross for Olorin's..

"What brings me to Overlook?! Didn't you get my letter last month? about your Aunt Sari?" Before Salazar has a chance to respond, she catches a glimsp of Mal not far away. She storms over to him and glares "And you! Why do I have a feeling that YOU have something to do with this mess." Answering herself she says "You always do."

Hedoni elbows Ravenblade, and with a whimsical whisper and a smile, says, "This explains SO much..."

Ever since the battle for Overlook, Ravenblade has been very introspective and somber. With Kalad's rise as a spiritual leader, Ravenblade has spent much of his time with the paladin, helping with the rebuilding. Several weeks ago, he formally entered the service of the forgefather as a Hammer of Moradin, keeping the pledge he made in the inferno that not only changed his convictions but also his appearance.

"Hmmmm..." responds Ravenblade to Hedoni, but says nothing more. His tone is almost disinterested, as if his mind is elsewhere.

Mal shies away a bit from the frightful woman. "Aunt Mari...How good to see you."

"Liked my chances with the undead dragons better" Daggoth mutters under his breath.

He backs away slowly, hoping not to be noticed standing half obscured by an armor stand.

To Mal she says "Don't you 'How good to see you' to me young man. A nod's as good as a wink to a blind horse." Her accusitorty tone changes to concern and urgency, "Your mother wants to get married, to some wood-carver who sauntered into town not two months ago. Let me tell you he's no wood-carver. There is something not-right about that man, Enrac. I can feel it. Why would anyone decent want to marry Sari?"

Mal's eyes flare red for a moment, "How dare..." he drifts off shying away from a verbal spat. "What makes you think he is not a wood-carver?"

She answers Mal, "He showed up with a trunk full of wooden statues and bookends, but I've never seen him actually carve anything. When I gave him good quality piece of pine and asked him to carve me a fox, he took it, but a day later gave it back saying pine doesn't make for good foxes. What is that supposed to mean? All he does is mope around Sari's house, eating her food, kissing her, and rummaging around in her things."

Seeing the skepticism in his eyes she tries a different tact "Look, she's your mother. You love your mother? Right? If you care about her, you should come home with me right away and get this matter sorted out. She might listen to you. Gods know she doesn't pay me any mind."

"Hmmm. It definitely is worth meeting this guy. Alright, Aunt Mari. I will come back to Witchcross with you. Sal, are you joining?"

With a glance of trepidation at his mother, Salazar slowly replies, "Uh, sure, yeah, I guess... I mean, of course... that's it."

Salazar's mother looks relieved "Good. Bring all your group - what are your calling yourselves? The Libations? I'm sure having a few more heavily armed men along will make Enrac take us seriously."

OOC: I need your character sheets please. I'll volunteer Gary to put them into the new character builder if you need help with that.

Hedoni, smiling through the entire exchange, is unable to hold back audible laughter at the thought of calling the group "The Libations". Regaining his composure somewhat, he calls out, "I, for one, would love to make the trip."

Gary's got my character info. Anyone know how much gold we've got handy? Hedoni's a bit lax in keeping track...

The group gained about 19,000 gold from this last adventure, more than doubling your riches. Some of you have already spent some of the cash from before and I don't keep track of that. You can see the total treasure and experience you've earned from each adventure on the wiki.

OOC: Hedoni spent 2,320gp at the beginning of The Temple Between, when the group had acquired 14,830gp (giving about 2,966gp to everyone). So that leaves him with 646gp, plus his share of the 19,200gp (3,840gp each) we earned during TTB, for a total around 4,440gp.

Does that math sound right?

Since you have not had any word from Megan and the Freeriders or Amyria, you decide to accompany Mal and Salazar to Witchcross.

Along the way, Mrs. Miller shares some of the town gossip with you as well as more of her suspicions about her sister's fiance. "Sari says they are a perfect match. Supposedly, he likes everything she likes; their favorite color is both green, their favorite food is both spagetti and meat balls, and their favorite ballad is 'The Sun Sets ore the Rolling Hills.' I tell you she is too trusting. An ounce of skepticism would do my sister a ton of good."

She prattles on "Salazar, did you know your sister Sabrina had another baby girl? That makes three! I wonder if she's going to keep having more children to try and get a boy."

The woman is simply a fountain of knowledge about the personal business of the townsfolk in Witchcross "I have to tell you about the old butcher, Mr. Martin, and his son. Well you know he retired a few years back, his arthritis was getting to him..." after a while, you stop paying that much attention.

"...grrrrr..." Ravenblade growls to himself quietly as Salazar's mom continues relentlessly. How is he supposed to keep an eye and ear out for threats with all the noise.

Growing bored with the stories also, Hedoni takes some time to subtlety alter his appearance with his hat of disguise. He also keeps an eye on his path.

It takes you three days journey east along the old dwarfroad, through the Westdeep forest and past Brindol, to reach Witchcross. Along the way Ravenblade and Hedoni keep their eyes peeled. Hedoni appreciates the start of the autumn season, the turning of the leaves and the cooler temperatures. He imagines how the forest will look in three months time, covered in a blanket of snow.

You finally cross the Witchstream and make it to the village of Witchcross. The sun is setting at you make it to the small cottage Mal was born and raised in. His mother, obviously the twin sister to Salazar's mother, greets her son with an enthusiastic embrace. "Mal! Oh I am so glad to see you. You look well! thanks be to the Gods. Oh, this is simply wonderful. You'll be here for the wedding tomorrow! Enrac should be back from Brindol soon. He went to get my ring." She smiles shyly, "He's such a wonderful man."

Then she turns to the entire group "Won't you come in? Have some tea? I've a apple tart cooling on the sill. Make yourselves at home." Although physically the same as her twin, Mal's mother seems quite different from her sister, warm and generous.

Happy to finally reach Witchcross and - hopefully - get a chance to take a break from his mother, Salazar eagerly greets his aunt. "Aunt Sari! So good to see you! An apple tart, you say? I've certainly missed your baking since leaving home."

Ravenblade nods in greeting to Mal's mother, still warily looking around while absently rubbing at a recent Moradin tattoo on his upper arm.
