Today the players woke to find their foster father, Gorion, wearing traveling attire and clearly preparing for a long journey. Seeing that his children had risen, Gorion indicated that they would be accompanying him on his trip without saying where they were to be going. He gave each 50 gold pieces with which to buy their own necessary items and asked them to stay together so that he could easily find them when he was ready to depart.
The party headed to Candlekeep Inn where, after some brief back-and-forth with Winthrop the innkeeper, Korrgk was asked to leave. Thinking to exact some mischief on the xenophobic innkeeper, Korrgk attempted to tamper with the windows of the inn but was quickly apprehended and arrested by the city guards.
Inside the inn, Orcson Titanblood and Anwyn browsed Winthrop’s goods and considered what they might need on a journey of unknown length and destination. Growing disinterested with the haggling and planning, Abdel Adrian wandered over to an interesting-looking mage sitting by the fire on the first floor of the inn. Through conversation, he learned that the mage had lent his scroll of Identify to First Reader Tethtoril some time ago and would like it back. Abdel agreed to help him run this small errand and set out alone to do so.
After finishing their shopping, Orcson and Anwyn went to the barracks intending to release Korrgk from jail. A few words with the bailor earned them the company of their brother as well as a stern warning against stirring up trouble again. Abdel caught up with them not soon after and the group was complete once more.
Unfortunately, trouble found them not much later that same day and they were beset twice by assassins– completely unheard of in the sleepy fortress-city. Korrgk and Orcson quickly discouraged the first would-be killer verbally but the second proved to be less interested in discussing the matter. Luckily, the four easily defended themselves and passersby vouched for them to the guards that they had not initiated the fatal encounter, merely defended themselves.
With more than enough excitement for one day, the party proceeded to the city gates to await their father and set out on their vague journey.
