The native peasants of Nälosk threw a feast in honor of Caravag’s team. Kal animated the great boar’s skeleton, neatly pulling it free of its flesh so that the villagers could cook and serve its meat as the main course. Unfortunately, this celebration was upstaged somewhat when Governor Gregor Durosko and his daughter Catherine arrived; Gregor announced that his daughter’s birthday would be celebrated at the end of the week, irritating the villagers who had hoped to spend the time in celebration of their newfound heroes. Catherine, for her part, made an effort to appear diplomatic and charmed Caravag’s team and villagers alike.
That evening, while Catherine and Kia were out walking in the woods to the southeast of the village, they were attacked by a Kyton (also known as a Chain Devil); Kia subdued the monster, and Catherine killed it with a concealed silver dagger, unfortunately preventing it from telling more about its motives.
Kal and Fengard, meanwhile, had a merry adventure in the denser forests to the north, falling into a nest of ettercaps and uncovering an old Ethereal Filcher skeleton on top of a small hoard of magic items. The ettercaps hinted at something about dragons before they were mercilessly cut down. Probably wasn’t anything important.
