The heroes jumped back into the game world after activating the second basement elevator. They landed again in the dead T’rilk’s den. After a short rest, they pressed on down the road.
Soon they found evidence of another scuffle on the road (similar to the missing wagon). Except, there were footprints of survivors this time. Following the tracks, the heroes found a gathering of wounded T’or Cultists. It would appear they had a fight with T’rilk and barely survived. The heroes engaged with the embattled cultists and managed to overwhelm them.
After the fight, the heroes interrogated one of the cultists to find out why they were working with T’or. He claimed that T’or saved them from a life of confusion and subservience to a lesser god. Now they spread her word to the major towns and attempt to gain converts. There are a number of them that fight to get dominance over small unprotected villages, and the cultist claimed that they have spies working within certain civilizations. He soon started deteriorating his speech into babble. The attempt to interrogate the other cultist only resulted in him committing suicide via a poison capsule. The heroes took note that the two cultists they attempted to interrogate had different symbol patterns with red lines instead of black. Perhaps, the new patterns designated ranks or powers…
The heroes left the Feathered Woods and finished walking to New Bastion. They arrived and were allowed inside after revealing that they had no ill purposes (or any more of those damed Tee Ore pamphlets). A lively young man introduced himself as John Swift and offered advice on the city for some silver pieces. After some negotiations, they learned of some of the local inns and some recent history. They found out the King, Corinth, and his son, Ronald (Ronnie), had recently been reunited after a ten year absence. Swift also mentioned a strange emotional healer named Archos that wandered into town about a year ago. He attended to the king’s depression and had it cured even before his son returned.
The heroes then headed toward the Dove Tail for the night…
