A Cold Day
Oathday, Pharast the 4th of 4710

After a hearty breakfast the charter bearers decided that they would be able to cove more ground in their search for the Thorn River Bandit Camp if they split up, Tillian and Dágen heading west and Eres, Aya and Dallas traveling south.
While traveling to the south, Dallas mapped some of the northernmost reaches of the Nalmarches (C9), discovering a radish patch with some Kobolds that the trio avoided. After resting for the night, they proceeded farther south into the hilly Kamelands (D10), keeping notes of the terrain. After dealing with some aggressive wildlife, Eres found a hidden crack in a crag, that turned out to be a small cave with an untapped gold vein. Once again, the group hunkered down for a cold night in the cave, and awoke to an even colder day. The temperature had plummeted overnight, Dallas showing the signs of early frostbite, Eres packed up the horses and the three started the long journey back to the trading post. As the bitter cold continued to test Dallas’s endurance, it eventually proved too much. With the battlemage drifting in and out of consciousness, Eres was now on a clock, and it wasn’t long before her Roc also succumbed to the freezing temperatures.
During the same period, Dágen and Tillian were heading west, north of the Nalmarches (B8), before heading into the forest (C7) and discovering a riverbank brimming with stinging nettles and thick briers. While exploring the woods, they found themselves ambushed by several mites and a giant hunting spider. The two found themselves overwhelmed when someone or something seemingly intervened on their behalf. Dágen woke to find himself and Tillian lying in a glade alone, and only after thoroughly checking himself did he find that his spellbook had been all rewritten in Sylvan. The pair ended up camping for the night before heading out of the forest (unfortunately their impromptu nap got them turned around and headed in the opposite direction then they intended) where they were able to regain their barrings, and decided to head back to the trading post. Tillian spent the next day attempting to train his new horse for combat to no avail, while Dágen spent most of the cold day next to the fire in the Leveton’s house talking to their latest tenant, Jhod Kavken, who had a rather odd quest for the team.
Late in the afternoon, Eres rode up the hill to Oleg’s with Dallas and Aya in tow, unconscious and cold, but still alive, if only barely.

A Heavy Sword
Wealday, Pharast the 3rd of 4710

Our heroes awoke to a grim task, the interrogation of prisoner, and potential for execution. While Emaunt proved to be unhelpful and callous, the young boy, Adwic Havish, proved to be more than willing to leave behind his life of forced banditry in order to keep his head. Dágen set him up with Oleg to work for his keep at the trading post. Adwic told Dágen and Dallas the appoximate location of the bandits’ camp, and that their leader, Kressle, served another bandit going by the title of Stag Lord.

Jame’s Character carried out Emaunt’s execution for his crimes, beheading him. his body now hangs along with the other bandits on the trading post palisade, his head adorning a spike as a warning to any other bandits that are thinking about bothering the fort.

That evening five guards from Restov arrived in response to Oleg’s request. their leader, a man named Kesten Garess, despite being too late to despair the previous day’s attackers, decided that the company would guard the fort until they are needed elsewhere.

A Good Start
Moonday, Pharast the 1st of 4710

After arriving at Oleg’s Trading Post, four adventures (and a bird) had almost no time to relax before being confronted head on with the Greenbelts lawlessness. Oleg’s request for help from Restov has thus far gone unanswered, and with the bandits coming to collect their protection fee for the month of Pharast, our heroes step up to the challenge. The Bandit collection party was quickly and skillfully dispatched, leaving three killed in the fight and two, a boy named Adwic and a man named Emant captured.

OIeg and his wife, Svetlana are more than happy to open their home to their heroes, hoping that their presence will not only provide further protection, but that they my be able to rid the Greenbelt of the bandits once and for all.
