Graham told me of their adventures while I was away. They went to room 103A at the Inverted Pyramid, where Berengaria Stormchild was teaching Maxel, Sabra, and Tobias an after-hours conjuration lesson. The students conjured some snake plants which were beyond their control. Tobias died in the battle. Jinelle saved the day. This led to yet another inquest for Aldren and Graham. Aldren found a note on his door, but tore it up. Aldren and Graham received a mysterious liquid from Maxel and Sabra the next day. It exploded into a shadow demon. Sabra went catatonic and kept saying "Ssuyk." That is Kyuss backwards. Aldren and Graham used the Spellcrux, which amplifies their magic abilities, but at what cost? Balik looked into the demon's eyes and saw worms, which further indicates Kyuss.
KAT was thrown out of the Onyx Spider and was wandering off when he saw Talmorr of the Tree Ghost Tribe. A skull of a frost giant is buried under a Nall sacred ground and is causing unrest for the dead chieftains.
It has been one week since I have been home. I have been training with Elaine to become a Viridian Lord. It has been much more difficult than I had ever imagined. I have received a short respite from the training.
We decided on teh Old Goose to discuss the plans for the day. We will help KAT with his quest. We will go tomorrow morning. First, we went to the bath house and we had baths. Once we were clean, we rented a cart and Balik got us some oxen.
We arrived at the burial ground of the Blue Bear Tribe. It was a terrivle experience. Aldren, Graham, and I were aged twenty years. Balik was aged forty. Graham was so frightened he peed himself. He also tried to take the cart back to town. I accidentally blew up one of the oxen and part of the cart. We eventually recovered the frost giant skull.
Having fled the battle and gone directly to town, Graham decided to drink with Barras at the Onyx Spider. He asked Barras why people at the Inverted Pyramid don't know him.
We went to Balik's church, gave them the skull, and got restored to our correct ages, except Balik, who now has a salt and pepper beard. We met up with Graham and Barras. There was talk of the Warlock suspect list. Barras told us that Maxel and Sabra are Findle Thisk's children! He suggested Lady Cardie's at 4 Fountain St in Oldtown as a better place to get a bath than the bath house on Tavern Row.
Aldren went to Imzel for help. She told him to look honestly at what the Inverted Pyramid is really doing for him. How much has he really progressed?
Ghelryn Foehammer came to Balik's around 10pm. Giants are attacking Mistmill!
