It has been a full week since we’ve left Ravengro, and things just keep getting crazier.
We waited in town for a few days while the magistrate completed the official paperwork for our licenses. We are now officially merchants. After those guards a couple cities back tried to steal from us, I’ve been a bit more cautious with our goods. Sattiva and Poppy decided to try their hands at hawking wares, and overall it went pretty well.
We didn’t sell anything the first day, although part of that may have been because our goods are all very good quality. We considered trying to sell them for more money, but decided that that we didn’t want to take advantage of anyone, so we agreed on fair market value.
Sattiva cast some of his more flashy spells to attract customers and the second day we wound up selling a few items. Poppy spent the two days brewing potions in the wagon, and I am really impressed at his skill.
The dwarf sisters spent the two days training our farmers in the use of more martial weapons. They have been a tremendous boon to us, and have made our lives much easier. I also hope that we’ve made THEIR lives better by offering them a chance to see the world and make some money.
The night after we left the town we were attacked in the middle of the night by wolverines! Four of them burrowed under our camp and attacked us. Apparently the dwarf sisters have something against wolverines because Inge punched her fist through two wolverines. That’s not an exaggeration either. She LITERALLY punched her fist through two wolverines. I didn’t see Tuva during the fight, but I heard the farmers talking in whispers about the crazy look in her eyes as she sliced up the animals. I need to remind myself to NOT take a wolverine animal companion.
The next day, we were almost to Lepistadt when we came across what turned out to be a travelling carnival. There were all sorts of interesting people, but they were missing a person. Sattiva and I (and my wolf) managed to track her through a swamp. We thought we heard her screaming, but thanks to Poppy’s quick thinking, he levitated into the air and saw it was some kind of strange beast. It turned out to be a phase spider and it appeared in the middle of us and grabbed Inge.
Inge fought valiantly, but the spider bit and poisoned her. Tuva became enraged and charged the spider cutting a chunk out of it. I also managed to fire off a couple arrows into it. It looked as though it were ready to fall, but ended up disappearing at the last second.
We healed ourselves up, and found the poor carnival girl’s body. There were a couple more interesting items that we took and for some reason THE DWARF SISTERS STARTED EATING PICKLED GARLIC CLOVES!!! Thank about that. We found a jar of pickled garlic cloves in a fetid swamp with no idea how long they’ve been there and they started eating them. I’m even more scared of them now.
We returned the body and the carnival folk gave us a magical dagger in exchange. They didn’t need to, but we appreciate it. We’re just about to follow them into Lepistadt so this is where I leave you. I will write again when I get a moment.
