|Grey Dog Village|
fter only a few hours of travel, the party run into a Lunar 4 horse cart guarded by Lunar Guards and a Lunar dignitary, which is under attack from a gang of Trollkin lead by a Cave Troll. The Lunars are getting a beating, and things are looking grim. Already some of the nasty Trollkin are picking up loot from the cart and running of with it, but the party decides to side up with the Lunars and they manage to attack the Trollkin gang by surprise. The ferocious attack leaves two Trollkin dead, the others scared and ready to run, so the Cave Troll has to make a statement. Instead of using his sling, he grabs his huge mace and charges forward. The young Orlmarth called Ragnar facing him stands his ground, and at first manages to parry the furious Uz warrior. The damage dealt by the Troll is way beyond what the unarmed adventurers can expect to withstand, but before things get out of hand, Ragnar manages to masterfully dismember the huge Troll with a sublime blow. This totally discourages the remaining trollkin, and they attempt to scatter off. The party finishes off a few more trollkin, and Brian the homeless takes one of the trollkin into captivity, intending to use him as a slave. A thing bound to not go down well with the Uz, should they ever find out: only Uz are allowed to have trollkin slaves. The dead cave troll is carrying a valuable bronze set of armor, a great prize indeed, and the party decides to take it along in order to sell or exchange it in Old Man village. Some of the companions recognize one of the Lunar guards, standing behind the cart and out of harms way: it is the Lunar Tax Collector detached to the court of King Kangharl of the Colymar.
|Reaching Moon temple|
The party have little choice but to make a stretcher and carry Ranath, on the brink of death, all the way to Grey Dog village to the Lhankor Mhy temple there. The attending priest performs some powerful healing magic on Ranath, and after a long night he wakes up in the morning, feeling much better. He discovers the loss of all his money, a considerable amount of silver, but finds the temple priests very cooperative. He and his companions spend almost two weeks training and practicing, mostly paid for by money leant to them by Kemal of the Hiording.
