Tharr’s Rough Notes
Woke up- 22nd of Mezzo
A half days’ travel- came to the BugBear cave.
We sent Effie in to take a look around…
After 2 or 3 minutes she returned:
She landed on me. Looks like some sort of arena and there’s some sort of nasty look monster thing drinking at the bar. Really furry- looks like some human dog.
The Dude said maybe it can get some counseling.
We headed in…
A well-worn iron staircase goes down to a balcony- water drops down the damp walls. The balcony looks over an arena.
A muscular, savage humanoids standing 7 feet tall. Coarse hair covers much of his body. It’s nose is much like that of a bear. He has numerous scars all over his body.
BB: Are you hear for the challenge? Do you want to challenge me in the pit?
Merry- what do we get if we win?
He was drinking from a mug and it’s got some dank liquid inside it.
He pulls a pouch off of his belt- I’ve got some gems and coins here if you can best me one on one.
To a knock out or death.
If we lose?
I get to declare I have bested you- haha!
If you die because you’re too
I’m Just Stink or Jah Shank
I’ll partake of your weak substances
A ruby and about 100 coins- ½ gold, ½ silver
Let’s do this! (M)
He seemed unimpressed.
The pit is 20 feet at the top and 15 feet wide at the bottom, and 15 feet deep.
The talked a lot of trash to each other.
She closed, he grabbed her and she struggled as he dragged her towards the pit.
She managed to move him away from the pit.
He then picked her up and threw her into the pit- 15 foot fall.
After moving, he shouted: End them- the four of goblins way up high on balconies. One hit me with a javelin but the others tried to his the rest of the party but missed.
20 feet up the steps…
40 feet up the steps…
60 feet up the steps…
Made it to the edge of the cave…
Made it to the wagon…
Grabbed a couple of heavy crossbows and ran back…
Made it a little way down the stairs.
Double move down the stairs.
Hey guys- I made it with the crossbows!

The rest of the day was uneventful.
Set up camp- usual watches.
The night is uneventful.
23rd of Mezzo – morning.
Travelled all day- arrived in Suki that evening.
5 or 6 PM
We went to see Lesko- Garreth stayed with Oliver and the horses- the rest of us went to Warehouse C with Effie
What- you were here yesterday asking about the boat to Inferno.
The client that the shipment brought back to us-
We sent that messenger about it-
I said he’d sent us all to the docks (to the complaining person).
The boat to Inferno is being unloaded- I think it’s leaving mid day on the 25th.
Lesko said- Osphrid is with you guys
The guy that’s looking for us- an academic type
Human – male – white hair – looked old – academic robes – kinda like a dress.
I kinda got the feeling he could handle himself- that confidence that he could handle himself.
His tone changed when I told him.
Come to think of it, the first group didn’t know what he was talking about when I (Lesko) mentioned the message you sent me.
How’s the hostile takeover. In the process of consolidating the warehouse into our own.
We are processing all of their existing contracts.
Gave Lesko a password to know it’s us- the password is Effie.
It is a pretty far trip to Inferno.
(Our doubles were checking in with Osphrid- then Lesko mentioned the ship. They seemed interested in that piece of information).
It’s a sailing ship – the name: The Emsworth.
Ask the dockmaster.
I don’t know who the captain is.
We just contract out for deliveries.
We’ve rented space on the boat but it’s not our boat.
If they can accommodate us, you’ll probably have to pay a lot to pay your passage and the wagon too.
“I can’t Believe it’s not Xaxis”
Gareth gave Oliver a dragon scale and then he saw Effie.
O: There should have been mentioned that a creature lurking in the shadows waiting to kill us…
Why did this turn black? It’s been used.
E: You should feel special that you get to see me!
-28 gp for the next two weeks.
(he’s paid through the 8th of aura)
Most of us went to the Jester Inn
The next morning as soon as Gareth wakes up Oliver runs off to check on the boat.
Weapon and armor shop.
To the Kind Crate.
1 gp for the tooth.
3 earrings- 225 gp.
Ruby – 100 gp
To the Creeping Eagle Apothecary
Asked them if they might recognize this potion we found.
This looks like a really simple potion- probably enhances- and Owl’s Wisdom.
Inscription on the dagger – Draconic – bears the inscription Red Fang. Not magical.
Oliver talked to the captain- dock 20.
We’ve got 6 people- the vessel is not all that big. If you would like- you can pay a rate to go and help, or a higher rate to
They could get the wagon on- so an extra cost. We could sleep in the wagon if we sleep in it…
Rent the space in the wagon and a couple of rooms. Probably no on the horses.
Leave us along – 6 to Inferno – 50 gp each.
We Help – 6 to inferno – 25 gp each.
6 – no help + wagon – 700
6 – help + wagon – 550
He went back to get quotes on taking the horses on the boat.
