8. New Company

The party searched the camp for the war band’s spoils and managed to amass an impressive haul. Their investigation also extended to the other end of the cap where they found the corpse of one of Henry’s men, along with many dead orcs. Buzz also set about to herd the war band’s pigs back towards Gredel. After a short rest, the adventurers also followed Tycus in search of the rest of Henry’s group, and following a trail of blood and dead orcs, they encountered the lifeless form of Henry himself. Taking all that they found with them, the group returned to Gredel unhindered, and as heroes. The party took the rest of the night to unwind and relax. Tycus bid them farewell, but not before asking a favor of Jester: to return Henry’s sword to his family in Vesium.   Early next morning, Grenthor herded the now rested party to proceed towards another village, Unther. On their way there, they came upon a man named Kent being accosted by a group of bandits. The party disposed of three of the assailants while the last one ran away in fear of his life. Since Kent’s destination also happened to be Aldeville, the party offered to have him join them, at least as far as traveling was concerned. With new company, the adventurers and the caravan entered Rysmarckian lands. Even as the group approached Unther, the military banners adorned with red suns were clearly apparent around the village’s perimeter, and more so as they approached the checkpoint.
