After a crushing defeat by the bandits near Thorn River, Chuck woke up washed ashore still inside the narlmarshes, with a quick look around he found noticed something heavy had been dragged from the river near him.
As he began standing up, still heavily wounded he saw a elven woman sitting by Faelan and with Ruyi on her shoulder, as he stumbled towards them, the woman began pouring pungent oils over Faelan body.
When Chuck continued towards the woman she told him that she was bringing his friend back, and began chanting in a language unknown to Chuck, soon after the chanting started, the oils on Faelan began moving about and soon after covered his entire body.
Meanwhile Chuck began look what else had washed up nearby and found his and Faelan’s backpacks, with some things missing, he grabbed the packs and began heading back to Faelan, when he returned he could only find a large blob of oil where Faelan once laid and the woman had dissapeared.
A bit further downstream, Arianah was setting up camp for the evening when she saw two bodies float down river, without much time for reconsideration she jumped in the river and began pulling Raleigh and Caladrel out of the water.
After getting them on shore Caladrel came to consciousness while they found a deep slash wound in Raleigh’s neck, and without a way to bring the cleric back, they decided to burn the body and head upstream to look for the others.
When they had traveled for a few minutes they found Chuck along with a humanoid shaped blob of oil, which soon after took the form of a Sylph, as it turned out Faelan had been reincarnated by the woman Chuck met earlier.
The party then decided to head back to Varti’s and lick their wounds, while staying at the trading post they heard rumors about an foul-mouthed hunter in the region called Breeg Orlivanch, Breeg had not been by the trading post for a few months and both Vekkel and Varti suspects he joined up with the bandits.
While resting Faelan talking a bit with Terilian about restoring his strength, he had been feeling weak after being brought back from the dead, Terilian informed them that he would not be able to help, however he might know someone that could and would try to get in contact with them.
After a few days of bed rest the party set out for the bandits along Thorn River, when they arrived they waited for midnight and began sneaking into camp, however before they could get sight on the bandits a loud thunder came from a tree nearby along with arrows being fired upon them.
During the fight Faelan formed a massive web on most of the bandits, trapping them along with Happs, Arianah made quick work of the bandit that originally spotted them and then began flanking to the other side of the web, meanwhile Chuck and Caladrel took care of those not trapped in the web.
A few minutes later, when Faelan dismissed the web, the party began looting the camp site, they found a small part of their own gold among the corpses but a large amount was still missing along with some of their gear.
They also found a note which seemed to suggest the rest had been taken to a fort nearby.
Before heading out towards new adventures the party wanted to visit the small hut south-east of Varti’s Trading Post, after riding for a few hours they came across a hut on a hilltop, smoke bellowing from the top, and with a knock on the door they stepped into the hut.
Inside they met an eccentric alchemist by the name of Bokken, during their talk Bokken took a liking to Chuck and offered him a discount if he brought could bring Bokken fangberries, since he had run out.
