Session 34 Notes
We talked it over and decided to go to the party. We dressed up and brought the fairy dragon. Moonsong was at the party, and we all waited for a while until someone asked us to come upstairs. We talked to the shadow fey ambassador until Vethany whispered that he wasn't who he said he was. We ended up fighting him and some devils dressed up as his guards. With Moonsong and Dammung's help, we took them out. Ember is fancy and Speed is posh.

1 C blueberries
1 1/2 C milk
Honey

Session 25 Notes
Finally, we decided on our plan to expose Pax and Co. Yak's aunt made Speed a recording device to use as proof. We disguised Scotti, Speed, and I as red cloaks and Tagrimm as a dead body, then we went in. We were able to record the abominations they were growing and get out without anyone suspecting us. We went to the House of Questions, and a strike force was put together. We went back to the sanitarium and went in without any disguises, capturing or killing the people there. A monstrous ooze attacked us, but we were able to take it out. Scotti is acting and Faith is mad.

We eventually decided to go down into the cartways and try to find a red robe. With some help from Yak the kobold, we found a marketplace where we figured we might find a red robe.

We gave her the orb and she said that she had cured Vasili's family. She left and we began bringing the treasure back to Zobeck. Once we got back, we noticed that winter was, strangely, already over. We bought a house for the party and Vasili, her memory restored by the priests of Lada, bought her family out of the sanitorium. Tagrimm is shaken and Vasili is back home.

1 C milk
1 T vanilla

Instructions:
Mix all ingredients and freeze for several hours.

Session 20 Notes
The people in the inn turned out to be werewolves and shadow fey, and we fought them until only Rolph was left on their side. He ran away and soon after, Heliwr came out of the well in the inn and brought us into some tunnels below the inn. We fought an ice devil and Tagrimm came back. Before we could celebrate that, though, Vasili fell down a pit and as far as we can tell, lost a lot of her memory. The others found a lot of treasure. Vasili is broken and Tagrimm is back.
