With the Urgathoan Cultists stopped, and the threat of the Blood Veil receding, the party was finally able to take a breather. For the next two months, while the Quarantine was still in effect, the party rested, relaxed, studied in the Acadamae, and honed their various skills. During the end-of-the-year feast at the Stoneforge Guildhall, they ate and drank their fill and shared what they had learned about the city and each other. It was a fine time.
And it was unfortunately interrupted by a courier carrying an urgent message.
In it, they learned that Ishani Dhatri had led an expedition through a portal found in a hidden room in the recently cleared-out temple. Seven days had passed, and the priests had yet to hear from the expedition. The Bank of St. Cuthbert needed the party’s help. And as usual, the party accepted the offer.
The new year would not be a quiet one…
