Kyras watched the Stone Lord Paladin in quiet fascination. The druid found a calmness at the slowemergence of the Uidisset earth elemental. The creature responded to Dolgrin’s call like a hesitant but obedient dog, it had a deep expression in its face and gemstones for what Kyras guessed as its eyes.
One by one the companions woke, still a little fatigued from the battle with the carrion claws, to see the amazing elemental bond with its new master.
“I remember you,” Dolgrin said between sobs, the emotion of returned memories had overtaken the battle hardened dwarf. “But when I last saw you Lapis you were but a pebble. Bha hahaha!”
“This is so sweet.” Dramen whispered to Syrendross who promptly kicked the red haired wizard's foot.
“Dolgrin, please introduce us!” Rydin sincerely asked the now composed dwarf.
“This old friend? May I introduce to you my friends Lapis Uidisset my faithful companion. His clan and my family have a long magical history.” Dolgrin said beaming with love and pride.
7 pm We begin our session leaving with the gnome Zhor Iendothe, the newly appointed River Baron, to hunt down the fugitives from the Fugitive. Dramen was the first to arrive to the stables to overhear Zhor “… haven’t been paid… please calm the nerves of the people… (a name) not to hit on local talent (a different name) no gambling… do you have your gear plus what we discussed? Yes. Keirkin and the Crown.”
As we travel into the night we learn Zhor has an interest in animal husbandry of horses and assures us we are traveling on the best. He shows us a map in case we get separated, there are two locations as we travel west toward the sea.
After an hour we enter a volcano torn landscape when we encounter two carrion claws. They come at us with claws and paralyzing attacks but we are for justice and justice cannot be so easily defeated. In the aftermath Zhor was seen scavenging creature parts for ‘trophy’s’ he says.
We decide to rest in an area of volcanic stones that provide cover and a good vantage point. During Dolgrin’s watch he called to the stone and the stone answered in the form of a companion- Lapis Uidisset. The creature’s clan had a deep history with Balder and therefore comes to Balder’s avatar in response. During the night Dolgrin learns Terran from Lapis.
|Okala the twice captured|
