Order of The Golden Dawn
While the party was resting and healing up, a group of three hobgoblins entered the cave, two of them carrying a cage holding a Litorian. The party fought the hobgoblins, minus the unconscious Wolfram and the guards. They rescued the Litorian who was named Webster. At the end of the battle, To’Gar used a wand to heal himself and was seen by one of the guards, who then demanded that the wand be used to heal the three other injured guards. To’Gar argued that it was his item and therefore his decision on when it was to be used. Back in the alcove, one of the other guards stood and threatened to kill Wolfram if To’Gar did not use the item as they demanded. After a battle, the party locked all the guards but one into the alcove, letting the other return to the city. Cassy found a magical sword under one of the hobgoblins and Raedwolf decided to carry it with him. To’Gar healed Wolfram and they continued on their way, without the guards.
After another day of travel through the tunnels, they finally reached the surface and after a bit of debating and no signs of any children, decided to head toward the mountains. During their next watch, they were attacked by a bugbear. Vanessa was heavily wounded and fell unconscious and Raedwolf found that his new sword would automatically appear in his hand when threatened, although he could only clumsily wield it. The next morning, Vanessa was mysteriously healed, despite no one using enough healing magic on her to repair all her wounds. The morning carried a cold wind and Vanessa decided to use her Orb of Environmental Adaptation to keep everyone warm. Near the end of the day, they came across a giant owl nest and were forced to fight their way around.
During the night, the temperature dropped and half of the party nearly froze to death in absence of the influence of Vanessa’s orb. When she awoke, she activated it, and they had to wait for the rest of the party to regain consciousness, losing a day of travel. During the next watch, a polar bear wandered into their camp and gravely injured Cassy and Bryte. Raedwolf sliced off his own hand to keep the cursed sword from coming to his hand and use the battle as an excuse, saying the bear bit it off.
