As the party makes their way towards Port Norsal, having chosen to take Eldith along with them, they are stopped by the dwarven smith of the village of Starren. He offers them a masterwork quality sword that he has made as a side project for free under two conditions: they use it to kill Grimfang, and they spread the word about his work when they do. However, the party only intends to locate Grimfang, not kill him, so they turn him down.
On the road, Ariel and Eldith share stories of their people. Hoping to get some more information about dragon myths, Ariel instead, gets her first story about creatures from the Underdark. After steering the conversation towards dragons, she comes to learn little that she didn’t already know.
As the afternoon starts to turn to early evening, the group notices some wolves behaving erratic, who end up charging out into the road and attacking their horses.

Guild of Adventurers – This is a very highly produced actual play that really blurs the lines between being an actual play and a scripted audio drama. So far, the show has loosely been based on adaptations of classic stories and plays, with the actions of the players altering from the usual course of the stories. These have been great people to get to know and we were even able to sit in on one of their recording sessions to see how they get the show all put together. The only downside is that their production value means there’s a bit of a wait between episodes.
