I almost forgot that I have a feeling of being watched. I want to write it down because I’ll probably forget again, but there was a crow that seemed to keep a very trained eye on our group as we were going to see the lady-witch Nameia, but I didn’t see it again. When we moved on in the morning, we did head toward the goblin caves that she had cleared out as per Renhart Bradley’s orders. Oddly enough though, they weren’t cleared out.
I would go on again about luck and our lack of it, but there does eventually come a silver lining. After we get caught and after the guards are roused, we have to disappear into the night. It takes some time to come to a consensus, but eventually, we also decide that we should follow up on our lead, and this is where the lining comes in. To a point. I manage to sneak back into camp and steal several rocks that have been mined, and as we get back to Redford, we see a thread of silver. We’ve already discovered that the men mining were the Captain of the Guard’s, so we try to keep a low profile until discovering a summons from the baron.
I don’t’ know how he felt about our confession. I do know that a certain wood elf came to check on me and in my paranoid state, I lied to him. Then again, despite my best efforts, the elf found out that I’ve not been innocently toiling in town and actually came to check up on me as per Uncle Scratch. I don’t know if he’s worried, but I don’t think I helped if he is.
The baron gave us orders to head up to another town with a letter, and on the way, we met a certain dragon. He was about to be set upon by bandits (I’d gone ahead to scout), and you know how I feel about injustices dealt to those of “other kinds”. No rudeness meant, but I couldn’t sit by and watch the man be killed for no reason.
Instead, I almost got us killed. Almost being the key word, because as thin as our luck is, maybe it’s all not so bad. We did manage to get away; we did manage to get healed; we did manage to find an inn to stay at for the night and have some hot food.
I think the bard got showed up by a lady-bard somewhere between Yoon and I washing dishes for a hot meal and going to bed.
