After the Drow attack, Master Traoren summoned four young people to run a message to a friend for him. He was enigmatic, but insistent and urgent, so they agreed. They set off through the woods, hoping to avoid any Drow still watching the village.
The first afternoon of travel was uneventful. They got to the highway with enough time before sunset to finish the trip into the nearest town, opting not to camp in the forest. They had no money for the inn, but Xenia got them floor space with the church of Ehlonna after the local cleric learned of their unfortunate situation.
The next day of travel was a bit more hazardous. Keeping off the highway as Traoren recommended, they chanced to stumble upon a scavenging, young wild boar. Xenia bound it with an entangling spell while the others steadily attacked the frenzied creature. It fell swiftly, but not before giving Avaril a grievous gash. He passed out, but Xenia swiftly attended to his wounds and the party continued, richer by a sizable portion of pork.
The day’s excitement was not yet over. Leaving the woods, within sight of the tower they sought, a lone Drow stalking them sprung her ambush. Her first bolt missed, but her second poisoned shaft struck Xenia, who succumbed to the sleeping poison. Denzil swiftly retaliated with an arrow, placed solidly in the Drow’s throat. The shadow-Elf died instantly, leaving some useful items for Eilir to scavenge.
The travelers finally made it to their destination, where they were met by an old but lively man, Corysan Illythinan. He gave them tea, and healing as needed, while answering a few of their questions. The mystery behind just what the Drow were after remains just that, as Corysan insists on waiting for Traoren to arrive before that story is told.
