The party continues the fight with the Earth Elementals and Oakback dwarves, and Jett's desire to have fun finally butts up hard against Harper's sense of justice regarding a toad and a bag of a holding. And then Harper gets a surprise visit from Ros with even more surprising news about Longcryer.
Cast and Player Characters
Aludra continues to make her presence known on the battlefield with, Tremorstep, Thunderwave, and Crackle. Jett fends off his immediate threat by Polymorphing one of the Oakback warriors into a toad, while Jaela heals him before he is struck down. Harper kills another Oakback warrior and intimidates the final one standing to surrender, while Aludra turns the final Earth Elemental into powder. With the battle won, Aludra and Jaela check in on each other, and Jaela tells Aludra that bloodlust looks good on her. Harper is concerned with interrogating the dwarves but for some reason Jett is very reluctant to give up the dwarf that is currently in the shape of a toad and stuffed in his Bag of Holding. He reminds Harper that he's only with the party so he can have fun, and this toad has to die. Harper tries to tell him that killing someone after combat is over is wrong, but then a loud boom outside the walls reminds them of the siege engine still outside. Jett uses the commotion to attempt to hide the Bag of Holding, and in response Harper tries to charm him, but fails.
Before this argument can escalate any further, the pendant around Harper's neck flares and with a loud popping noise, Ros appears before the group, and tells Harper that she's found Longcryer before passing out. News of the wizard pushes all other thoughts outside of Harper's head as he examines the map that Ros handed over to him before passing out. After he collects himself, he's flies up with his captured warrior and asks how they can stop the siege engine, but the dwarf only tells him that it can't be stopped. When Harper returns to the group, he's disappointed to see that Jaela has refused to heal Ros is still holding a grudge after five years. With Jaela refusing, Jett steps in to heal her.
- Nika changes Jeala's flaw to be, "Once wronged, I never forget," to better match the current, darker Jaela.
