As the party collected themselves from the waves of cultists dashed at their feet, another threat came charging across the keep wall. Four reavers, a fathomer and the leader of the keep, a wereboar named Jolliver Grimjaw. Jolliver charged in, knocking out Telfid, but the party rallied and the enemies were dispatched forthwith. Then the adventurers thoroughly looted the keep. Encountering little remaining resistance. The chapel contained a cultist priestess and her guard, who attacked the intruders, so they were aggressively dealt with. Some bugbears proved to be the last remaining resistance in the last tower. They, likewise, were aggressively dealt with. Exploring the secret staircase in the throne room, the party found a grotto with a wide stream running through it. Embarking on the boats that seemed provided for that purpose, they headed downstream only to be waylaid by ghouls who capsized one of the boats, dumping the heavily armored passengers straight into the stream. Thankfully, the other boat got back to shore safely, so the drier members of the party were able to throw a line to the wetter ones and haul them ashore. The ghouls proved to not be too much of a challenge as Telfid called forth his holy anger and scared half of them away. the rest were readily dispatched.
Returning to their boat to head back to Womford to restock and rest, they were nearly raided by a band of pirates. I say nearly, because the party reacted quickly and decisively to the threat, killing the captain and his mate before the pirates could mount an offense. Several remaining pirates jumped ship and swam for the shore, while one stubbornly held his post, only to be cut down.
Alas, our tale pauses here, to be continued next week.
