The Caravan Departs:
After doing some personal shopping, the team works on building up Sandru’s caravan. We purchase another covered wagon, a supply wagon and hire two cooks, two drivers, and a wainwright. Our adventure then gets under way as the 15 of us (and Porthos of course) set out on the journey from Sandpoint to Brinewall.
That night, one of the supply wagons begins to smoke. After investigating, it seems that someone in the caravan group purposely put hot coals in the wagon. Jira begins investigating the crew.
We arrive in Galduria:
- Sell trade goods for 11gp
That night, while on watch, Rika believes she spots the dark cloud from her past lurking in the trees. Investigation into the matter yields nothing.
We arrive in Wolf’s Ear:
- Sell trade goods for 16gp
- Sell trade goods for 15gp
- Buy trade goods for 10gp
- Buy 10 stores for 50gp
That night, Koya reads the cards which suggest that there’s a traitor in our midst. Jira continues his investigation of the crew upon receiving this news and once again broaches the subject of the smoking supply wagon. His leading suspect at this point is Grett due to his evasiveness. Speaking directly with Grett and Skizzik’s secret investigation of the driver yield nothing.
A band of goblins attacks the caravan. They are easily dispatched with minimal damage sustained.
Wasp venom was added to our Cod Stew and makes half of the group vomit. Skizzik whips up a potion to help ease the symptoms. The search then resumes for the sabetour as Skizzik determines that the barrel the cod came from was poisoned with the venom. However, it seems that everyone (save for Porthos) ate the stew that night so no one person immediately jumps out as a suspect, but Nore, Bore, Grett and Gordant all had a hand in preparing the stew.
- Skizzik secretly examines Grett’s personal belongings and discovers his half-orc porn and nothing else.
- Skizzik secretly examines Gordant’s personal belongings but discovers nothing incriminating.
- While Skizzik is going through Bore’s personal belongings, he is knocked unconscious from behind.
- Shalelu and Rika track Skizzik’s trail to one of the supply wagons where it appears one of the chests has been looted and drag marks lead away from the wagon and into the woods. Shalelu, Rika and the recently alerted Jira all head toward the woods in an attempt to locate Skizzik.
Where is Skizzik? Who kidnapped him and raided the chest in the supply wagon? What is that person or person’s motive for doing so? Find out next time on Jade Regent: The Reckoning.
