Session 22-1

Rot and Fungi

Making your way southwards along the river you after a few days, not too far from where river Nub flows into the Last Lake, noticed a smell of rot and decay. Following it you happened upon a small hamlet that by the looks of it had been washed out. The ground made of frozen mud, the buildings coved by a thin layer of ice and most of the roofs destroyed. In the main building you found the inhabitants put in a line and now covered by various fungi. The decomposition of the bodies and the fungi made the area around the bodies almost warm. Taking a sample of the fungi Dag accidentally got in contact with them and felt a familiar creature communicating with him. Stool, the myconid you left in Neverlight, sent through the fungi a feeling of frightened exaltation. A joyous celebration and a fungus growing from a caverns floor and disappearing into the darkness above. With supplies low you left the bodies where they laid and went after the perpetrators.

Session 22-2

Circle

Tracking the perpetrators for a few days, roughly the same time it took you to get from the cultists' ambush to the hamlet, you happened upon a scene where cultists laid slain. Knowing that you had already slain the destroyers of the hamlet you thought a bit about your next move. With their tracks leading towards Nub, and knowing about the ruined temple outside of the village, you started walking north.

Session 22-3

Nub, oh wonderful Nub

Arriving in Nub you found it to be one of the worse locations you had visited. Damp, muddy and half falling apart the village was no beauty. Renting rooms in the only inn in the village you tried to find out more about cultists. Despite a loose coin purse none knew anything about any cultists, at least not about any alive. During the night Zarrah's wards went off and outside one of the rooms she found one of the working girls loitering. having heard about about man with the loose coin pouch she wanted to go to work earning a bit of it. Turned away the night returned to routine.

Session 22-4

A new friend

The next day the girl, going by the name of Penny, ambushed Anton outside the inn and quickly became his new "friend" and wanting to know everything about him and his business to Nub. Despite obvious tells she had ulterior motives Anton enjoyed her "company". When the test of the party located Anton, as they started to miss him, they made sure he couldn't spend all of their coin on her and then let him get back to "friendship".
