At Magpie’s insistence, we flagged down and bought a ride from a passing caravan. Sure we were in a pig cart, but a ride is a ride and it meant not having to walk. Once we got back to Muerasae, we got shouted out of the tavern and I ended up paying for a bath in the horse trough. Honestly, I could have cared less at that point. After getting cleaned up and back inside, we talked with Ardisia and Claern, who managed to get out of prison. Heh. Seems Cruen’s plan actually worked. We have Aowyn now and are on our way to the xivort’s stronghold. And, wouldn’t you know, we happened upon a kill-happy robot along the way who joined us. Wonderful.
