Summary April 2nd 2021 04 02c

Started the night with Brer and Indigo discussing the combat with the Umber Hulk and the confusion that ensued. They also discussed gods and devoting yourself to one versus trying to collect as many as possible.

Tiffress entered in a panic (again) and called us to kill the many-headed (?) ankhegs that were chasing her through the mines. So Brer, Indigo, Sundown, and Howard headed off to take care of the problem. Although the first ankheg went down easy, the second swallowed Indigo and the third knocked Howard unconscious and nearly dead. Luckily, Indigo freed himself, Brer dispatched the last ankheg, and Sundown quickly bound Howard’s wounds to make him easily healable when they reached Skull Church and Baron Ulgin.

With that, the last of mining and road disasters were managed and the Protectorate is once again running smoothly. Back to the task list. Sundown suggests we tackle the farthest haunted weirdness first and work our way back home. Sounds like a plan, so the group (whether you were there or not) heads off to Old Man Millers at Redfern Lake to see what’s up with Otsutan.

Miller tells us that people sometimes camp there and then are never seen again. No one knows how or why. Miller, Brer and Indigo begin guessing what makes people disappear. Bandits? Goblins or other creatures? When Indigo guesses that a portal opens up, Miller asks if they could do that.

Who’s they? You know, those people that Branwyn sent a couple years ago who partially destroyed the inn. Those people. Who left. Who didn’t stay and tell Snee to stop building the road. But Miller sent Mr. Silver to threaten us! But Miller hasn’t seen Mr. Silver for about 2 years! Something fishy is going on around here … But Miller also said the town had the reputation of disappearing people for decades. Very mysterious indeed.

Why does Mr. Silver care about the road? And if he isn’t living at Redfern Lake, Dragon Fen, or the Protectorate, where is Mr. Silver hiding?

After getting some food and drink and promising Miller we’d let him know what happens, the group leaves and arrives at the abandoned town to investigate and make a plan to uncover the mystery of the town of Otsutan. Sleuthing time for next Friday!
