After Grol’kk’s escape the party reconvenes at Sleeping Haven and fill each other in on what had transpired.
Upon some deliberation the party felt that this was likely the work of a Hag Coven. The party decided to return to the Colony and talk with the school teacher to see if there was any obvious connection or reason the hags would be interested in her.
After a fast and uneventful trip to the colony the party went to the garrison to rest and wait for mid day to visit the school.
The party determined that the teacher had no connection to the Hags but she was keeping something from them.
Dalma bursts in intimidating the teacher into talking about The Blackheart. A figure who is extorting her into turning a blind eye to their undertakings in the graveyard. She mentioned hearing the name Kigri in association with the Blackheart.
The PCs spend the day and night on the roof of the observatory. The day passes uneventfully but they notice durring the night extra graves are being dug.
Ehtarari goes to the church to inquire about this practice and meetsMil’dari the Head Acolyte. She is aghast at the implication that someone is disturbing the graves and shows Ehtarari the pre burial rites.
Dalma taking on the visage of Sarinax helps turn away prying eyes as Qo digs up one of the fresh graves.
Qo’s lack of Tact aside the party finds, for lack of a better term, a flesh doll in the grave not an actual body. So what actually happened to Dilberry Gonglthorp is, at this time, unknown.
Kaz meanwhile was with the school children getting some useful information. He spoke with Mina Oakley and then Jan’dox Silverband. Aside from a bread smuggling ring Kaz found that Jan’dox claims to have seen one of the missing Palidans by their sick friendCalix Varin’s house.
The party meets up at the observatory and shares what they’ve learned. They decide to table the issue with the church and bodies as the Hag issue is the most time sensitive. They decide to use Dalma’s hair instead of the teacher’s.
The party returns to Sleeping Haven after stocking up of pots.
They gather some Intel via items and spells. Believing they are well prepared they await the return of Grol’kk to lead them to the hags.
