EE-2-9 - The Blackguard's Proposition

Powered by RedCircle


Our adventurers take a night to rest after their encounters throughout the forest. During the night, they receive an interesting gift from an unexpected visitor. Ultimately, though they wish to return it, they decide it would take far too much time given their current plans and they make their way back to the village of Starren.

While in Starren, they have another less than pleasant encounter with the Travel Company. Meanwhile, Rem seeks an audience with Ulyean Blackguard, who makes him a proposal to bring back to the group.
