Our heroes return from their adventures out past the King's Wall with their spoils and spend a few days exploring Restwell Keep in more detail.
Ur spent his time trying to start a quiet revolution in the town, hoping to spread unrest in the already unstable political climat. The common folk in the keep already feel a divide between the Inner Bailey where Lord Drysdale and his soldiers reside, and the Outer Bailey where all the common folk live their lives.
Benwick, a travelling priest, was found to be a supporter of the people and one of Drysdale's detractors. He tends to entertain the keeps more important residents and visitors and can be heard preaching that the paladin lord is taking away the freedom of the common folk.
Ur also discussed the political situation briefly with the High Priestess of Avandra, Chendera. She runs the Chapel of Avandra and is already well ahead of Ur in her desire to have Lord Drysdale vacate the keep.
While constructing a new Staff to hold a piece of Chaos Shard, Paul was contacted by an acolyte of the Saruun Guildhouse. The Lord of the guildhouse, Citirian, offered the party quite a sum of gold in exchange for the Chaos Shard found in the posession of the mad halfling cult leader. Ur also acquired a desk.
Based on leads from Citirian, the group set out to an abandoned keep near the King's Wall thought to be infested with Bullywugs. Citerian will happily purchase Chaos Shards and other corrupted samples from the group.
The party left the safety of the keep and travelled towards the abandoned keep to find a group of goblins having just murdered another adventuring party. Among the corpses, the group found a Letter containing evidence that this group was hired by a local Baron to track down a trio of murderous halflings.
The party rested up and now stands at the entrance to the ruined keep, ready to slay the occupying Bullywugs.
