The team sits around the manor house trying to decide how M’lo and Gigan can best stop the effects of the poison. Medea treats Gigan and he then purges the poison from his system. She then attempts to treat M’lo, unfortunately he only got worse, the poison will eventually fade, but it has ravaged his body.
The wax butler greets the team and welcomes them to the manor house. It is their best guess that he belongs to the house rather than to whomever resides there. M’lo asks the butler if the Magical Sextent is within the house and he says “No”. M’lo then asks if they have a place in the manor house where they store their food and water and is informed that the current residents all seem to carry their own food and water. He also mentions that the more experienced residents are expected to return to the manor house before sundown.
Mazrol asked the Wax Butler if he would lie for the team, with regards to their having been there inside the manor house. The butler’s answer was essentially, “No”.
Mazrol, then lead the team outside of the manor house where they discuss his plan to hide the bodies and have Blitz crush said bodies, so that they could not be used later as undead. The team agrees to the plan and then begin thinking about where the team could find a place to hide and wait for the cultists to return.
The team decided to use the manor house across the street. Medea and Mazrol clear a path through the vines. Once inside the team begins working on healing their assortment of wounds. M’lo took a drink from the healing via, which cures one of his wounds as well as some of his physical damage. M’lo then chased that drink from the threaded potion by drinking a standard healing potion. After all that and still not being completely healed, M’lo asked Medea if she could use her “Blood Sharing” ability in order to get the best healing effect for the entire team. Medea checks on the health of the entire team and decides that she will uset he ability and by doing so healing the entire team.
When all the healing was complete, M’lo beds down for the remainder of the night. Mazrol and Medea the decide that they will keep the watch. Mazrol took the first watch and kept an eye on the manor house across the street. Fox the Cat is set to wander about, doing recon. After nightfall several forms start entering the manor house grounds. There are very few light sources. A good number of that group appear to have the disconcerting shamble of cadaver men, and it appears that they are dragging bodies with them. As the group moves down the pathway from the gate to the manor house, it appears that they are dragging bodies.
As he is watching the group move around on the other side of the street, Mazrol can hear a loud and angry voice from the manor house. Then he sees some forms come out to the well as well as another group making a circuit around the building.
In the morning, as the sun rose above the enemies home, the members of the team begin waking up. Now that they are fully healed of damage and wounds they begin to make decisions on what to do for the day. While they are making their decision Mazrol tells them all a bunch of information he has remembered about Errin.
The team speands three days at the manor house watching for additional activity and seeing absolutely none. M’lo snuck across the street to the manor house and investigates. He moved through the grounds and eventually made his way around to the back of the house and looked through the hole in the wall. He was able to determine that there was no one around, except of course the Wax butler, who did not appear to notice him. M’lo did notice that there were some items that had been removed from the alter.
M’lo then went back across the street and reported his findings to the rest of the team. Mazrol then checked his ritual of finding, which resulted in no definate location for the cultists. Having nothing else to go on, M’lo decided to sneak back across the street and investigate further. He made his way into the house and once again did not appear to be noticed by the wax butler. He then made his way upstairs, finding that most of it looked rundown. The tables appeared to have been cleaned and used recently. He then made his way into the bedrooms and began searching through them.
In the master bedroom, M’lo found papers tucked into the false bottom of a drawer. Reading them, they were notes on a couple of meetings: Fall and Spring. The most recent one (Fall) Mangalin and Errin – Parlainth, build cult of Ragock and find more about Akashic Record in the Western Catacombs. Leldrin and Jaina are Blood Wood worked on sabotaging the relations with Throal. Finally, Argethiel and Farethiel – Travar, they are supporting Therans against Throal. Argethiel is attempting to become one of the three Magistrates.
