Location: Star's End Monastery
Date: Fall, 1332 Avard
Lintrell and Yurok are introduced to another 'associate' of the monastery – a man named Ilith who seems unnaturally silent, save when he speaks to himself. The monks show the three of them where they can store their money, warn them about the shadar, and bind Ilith (voluntarily) in a geas of service for one year to the monastery. On the morn, the three are dispatched to explore some already-plundered ruins about a day's ride through the forests to the south of the monastery. Towards the end of the ride, a terrible storm ravages the land, forcing them to seek sanctuary in the ruins – where they are ambushed by spiders with legs as long as a man's arms. After a brief but terrible fight, they explore the ruins and find a standing stone with a faint impression of a Karatikan blessing ritual that had not been seen for centuries.
DM's Notes: Bill and Skylar joined Ross and Paul on a stormy night, and the dice seemed to like the storm. Dinner was tomato soup and cheesy breads.
