Madox is off to get in touch with the other monk.
The party lays low at Phandalin for a month.
JOHN – For upkeep, spend half money for the month.
Silver Feather sends a message to Ravensgate to see what is going on during the month. Spring trading season has been going on. Zoloto and Sarbryanyi and Zachod trade among themselves (Mimnir is the largest kenku settlement in the Eryee). Ravensgate boss war has yet to happen (but it’s coming). The sent kenku from last session made it to Ravensgate and are settling in.
Mike hints that we need to make Zachod easier for the kenku to deal with.
Kingsreach (ruins) Jillian the druid (bad druid and the highest druidess in Umbra) has taken it over. And Duke of Aramoor wants to be the King of Umbra but Jillian is withholding it BUT also influencing him. In regards to the kenku, he does not officially oppress them and his kenku are in a better position. Aramoor is a rich city.
The line of the Umbra kings died out a century ago. The Duke of Aramoor is the most powerful. Cevorik Duchy is his land. He supports the druids but they keep him at arm’s length.
Caeside is curious about finding someone from the old royal bloodline. No one is left but there are rumors.
JOHN – Caeside asks Silver Feather to get his kenku spies to start looking into the possible royal bloodlines. Sent to Ravensgate as a magic message along with 100 GP to start to look for possible royal alternatives (bastards and minor houses).
Caeside gets Wren to join the party in Phandalin as his apprentice. She joins and Caeside begins teaching her about the Phoenix.
Aranel, for the last month, she went back to her elven village (Kota-Hutan). She is met by Del Saren and tells her that the unicorn of the Aderyn Forest has been captured.
Human wizard with a big, garish hat and a wagon has captured it.
Aranel comes to get the rest of the party and tells them of the unicorn and the kidnapping wizard.
Caeside thinks this wizard is Lee-Lorge. He collects animals. He is from the south and powerful. He captures animals. His garishly, brightly colored wagon.
Lee-Lorge is headed north toward Ravensgate.
Caeside casts Summon Animals to summon hawks to search the road for Lee-Lorge.
Conjure Animal (8 hawks for an hour)… not Summon Animals…
One of the hawks comes back and says that he pulled off at Talleux and doing a show (for a couple of days).
Wren (the kenku druid apprentice) joins the party.
The party strikes through the southwestern corner of the Arrowfell Woods to shave off time. Two days travel to do the trip to Talleux. They rejoin the road south of Thundertree (to avoid the dragon).

My favorite zombie trailer if you can forgive the 2011 CGI.
