The caravan arrived today. The big news was that a note arrived from Padir. So, not wayward and not lost either. Though he will likely never read this, Padir, I am sorry, I was hasty in my judgment of you, both times. The note said this,
I have searched the whole of Waterdeep over seeking someone who might know the answer to our problem. I now have a theory. I believe our people were exposed to the disease during the last goblin raid. It is possible that the goblinoids were using some sort of slow-acting poison. I will keep looking for a cure, but in the meantime, if you can trace back the goblinoids that attacked us to their home base you might be able to find out what they were using.
May Chauntea bless you,
We will have to try and find Padir to let him know of the events that played out in his absence. I am sure Magda will be eager to do this, though leaving the village with no cleric at all might be a problem. I was able to sell goods to the caravan for seven gold, and also sold the everburning torches as well. Fox is busy tallying up the split for our profit from the castle excursion, and it seems Dask and Magda are feeling better after all. I made a few more Mage Armor scrolls today, not for sale, but just for our own use.
Also, I sat down and talked with Magda, Dask, and Fox about the possibility of going back to the castle in order to recover the remains of the adventurer’s from Oakhurst, and possibly further investigate the dragon tomb, now that we are not pressed for time in getting back. We also might attempt to block off the passage to the underdark, as something like that so close to Armbard’s Pass is not a good thing. They did not want to commit to anything right away, but have promised me they will consider it. I think Magda is more distracted by the note from Padir and her want to find him than anything else. As the town council has called a meeting for tomorrow to determine our next course of action, this conversation may have been moot.
