The inn, The Dryad and the Splinter, was nestled at a crossroads between simplicity and extravagance. it was closest to a small village and lumber camp, surrounded by ancient forest. And just down the road was teh path to Moonhaven, the largest city in the region.
Bellitan awoke to find a note in his bag telling him that a person needed help and would be found on the old road. Bellitan thought about how a person could have gotten into his room. (Roll 1) and assumed it could only be witchcraft, and due to that, was now paranoid for the rest of the day.
Neri awoke to a much different letter and made her way to the tavern. She settled into a table and called out for a drink. Bellitan, behind the bar and clutching his letter, ignored that request and gave a drink instead, to the drunk that frequents this crossroads pub every morning.
Neri called out for a drink again. To which Bellitan stated, "Waitress isn't here".
As they started to bicker, a gnome stumbled in, clutching her side and coughing. Bellitan recognized the gnome as Laurel, the alchemist from Falcons Reach, a small village a few miles away. Neri rushed to the gnomes side.
Laurel explained that a sickness was spreading throughout the village. She lifter her shirt high enough to show her side. It's flesh was black and full of pustules. Bellitan told her to leave, while Neri asked her how she could help.
Laurel told them she knew what the disease was and knew how to make a cure. While collecting ingredients for the cure, she explained, she was attacked. The pub at which Bellitan lived and worked was the closest point to find respit.
Neri and Bellitan agreed to get what was needed so the sickness wouldn't spread.
Laurel told them she need 5 lbs of Elder Wood Moss, and A fair amount of Iron Bloom fungus.
They left the town using the "South" Road and saw an old man, with a funny hat and a broken down wagon. Bellitan asked the man if he was the one that sent him a letter, and the man in the hat said yes. Bellitan asked how the man got into his room, and the man told him he sent in his pet monkey. The man told, Bellitan, he was the one that the man was told to ask for help. Bellitan said that he didn't have time, and he was already on a quest and kept walking. The man yelled after him "fine, be that way" and everything that was there with the man, including the man himself, disappeared. Bellitan regretted not getting more information about the monkey.
They headed north east in search of the oldest tree to acquire Elder wood moss. They traveled through the Darkmoon Forest and took a shortcut through the local lumber mill were Bellitan convinced the guards to let him in. While walking through, they heard coughing and saw a man on the ground surrounded by a group of men. Bellitan didn't stop and kept walking.
They made their way to the elder tree, Neri spotted something shimmering moving in the trees, while Bellitan found three dead bodied hanging from the lower limbs. At that moment a Tatzlwyrm attacked. They took it down, and Neri skinned it while Bellitan cooked it for dinner. From it, Neri acquired the shimmering skin and 2 poison sacks. They are laying down camp at the tree.
