The party is able to leave the cave system without further incident. There are signs the hobgoblin lieutenant was present, but he seems to have escaped. With your best tracker ravaged by disease, you decide that the defeat of the priest of the Keeper will have to suffice. You bundle up the remaining supplies and make a crude stretcher for Blight and begin the trip back to the outpost.
You return to the outpost after a few days of travel, to see that it has been reinforced. The earthworks now completely surround it and a small watchtower has been erected. You are greeted with cheers as you display the heads of the goblin rogue and hobgoblin priest. Both heads are promptly placed on pikes on the watchtower. Blight is taken to the aid tent for treatment.
You see that the other adventuring party also met with success. Among the few remaining prisoners is a goblin covered in blue fur, dressed as though of some importance. Archon is not present and the present leader (Gurad Enthel) is awaiting his return to begin interrogation.
If you’d like to buy or sell, let me know what you’d like. There is a 100gp limit on items and you are restricted to what the clan Hoack druids could produce, or what limited stocks were captured with this outpost and still remain.
The other adventuring party may be willing to buy/trade with you.
Chevim Tuar (who performed at the festival) has mastered the ability to Identify items. He does have a supply of pearls and is willing to identify items for “cost” (100gp). He may also be willing to purchase weapons (especially a new rapier). Paige Nalis will assist in healing Blight, and he should recover by morning with her help. She is looking for a better set of armor than her current hide set. Stump the Goliath is bragging about his new spear. He “wrested it from the hands of a water-ogre” and proceeded to slay the beast with it. He may be interested in equipment of his size. Samdon Tuar is happily demonstrating his new conjurations. He would probably be interested in scrolls he does not yet possess. He also has a crystal that was in the possession of the blue goblin that he is willing to trade/sell (he is convinced it is quite valuable and expects 4000gp worth of trade though).
Here are your possessions if you need an update. You were able to refill ammunition from the outpost’s stocks. (I made Rayburn and William buy a waterskin which I didn’t have listed before). If you have any questions about anything let me know. I don’t think I’m missing anything. If someone in the group wants to put together a plan to distribute the loot, I’m sure it would be appreciated.
