After an uneventful few hours on the road, the Marshals arrived in Good Mead, a town dominated by a large Mead Hall. A crowd had gathered in front of the building, demanding answers as to why it was closed. The building manager and corporate boss, Olivessa, kept everyone back, assuring that help was on the way.

And help had arrived in the form of the Marshals.

With the upstairs guards defeated, Edmond opened the door to the Speaker’s bedchamber (C14), letting the body of one of the guard’s announce his presence as it fell forward into the room.¬† Speaker Crannoc was inside, disheveled, raggedy, and annoyed, but not bed-ridden or ill as Kadroth had claimed.

Edmond flashed his badge and the Speaker became a bit more grateful, though the party was unimpressed with his deposed predicament. He confirmed Avarice’s story: Kadroth had taken over the castle after they had agreed to work together to produce magical items from chardalyn. But Kadroth betrayed Crannoc, slew his guards, and kept him under house arrest to sign official documents and reply to letters.

Arriving in Caer-Dineval, the now level four Marshals found only a single establishment open to visitors, a tavern called The Uphill Climb. The surly bartender had many complaints, including lack of ale and spirits (the party still hadn’t done the Good Mead quest), the perma-night affecting the entire Dale, and the mysterious group who had taken over the town’s castle.

Nildar Sunblight had escaped during the fight in the main keep, but the party was in no shape to give chase. Instead they retreated back to his room and hunkered down for a short rest, knowing they still had to find the kidnapped prisoners, and remembering Nildar talk of turning people into spore servants in a room to the south.
