The party finished their few days of paperwork and merchantry. Some new equipment was gathered and the Rogue used his new contact to sell Baron Percy’s Amulet that he and the Wizard had stolen a while back as well as get some new items for his thievery and magery. After selling most of the valuables and splitting the loot, the party readied to head off once more.
Before the group was actually ready to depart, they were called by a spell from their allies back home. Apparently shit has hit the fan back in Rick’s Hold. Something about Drow? (Seriously, the Basic Six are gone for a few days and everything falls apart. Again. Sheesh. Normally WE knock the fan shit up!)
So the party needs to return to their keep swiftly, and have been given help from the temple of Pelor to enlist the aid of huge giant eagles to fly the group home.
But nothing is ever free, extra free stuff. So the group had to remove some vermin for the eagles who had been hiding in a hole in their eerie and been stealing their eggs.
Vermin turned out to be Gargoyles who, despite their best efforts, were decimated easily and quickly by the group, who were in no mood for further delays. Once victorious, the Six returned the stolen egg to the eagles and got a ride back to Rick’s Hold, a journey that only took two days as the giant eagle flies. Also the Wizard’s Dwarves left, despite having never even seen combat yet, while the Cleric has attracted the attention of three more Dwarven Warriors who he suited up and paid the eagles to fly back to Rick’s Hold as well with the party.
The eagles landed outside of the walls of Rick’s Hold, trying to avoid being attacked by the Humans who live in the area. They will wait in the woods until the party is ready to return to the coast and the Sea Wyvern.
