The party is only one day away from Stormbrook. Surely they can make it without trouble, distraction, or interruptions?
Crispin is rescued from the vines of a monstrous rose. A wayfarer’s station is found as well as an interesting book. Nearing the last leg of their journey, a familiar figure approaches the party.
Finally! On the road again! The party heads north to Stormbrook. Colleen and Arthur may be too accustomed to the comforts of village life. Jake feels a little inadequate while Babou soaks up the dew.
The party can’t seem to stay away from Perchance a Purchase. Once they complete their scaallpp–er ahem, totally legit business venture, they head back to the Dreaming Dragon to rest up before the next leg of their Journey.
It’s been over a year since Shapeshift began! Amber does a bit of GM reflection. There’s a Bluefield arc recap and then the party decides to stock up on supplies.
The party locates the Blue Lady and try to convince the Bee Happy Apiary that something is not quite right with Mayor Bearnard. They try to keep Scoot calm…for as long as they can.
Deciding that they will help the Rapid Claw Kin out, the party and Scoot head to town to find the Blue Lady. Babou and Scoot sing a duet to raise everyone’s spirits. Disguises are purchased and the 7th annual Bluebell festival begins!
The party meets Scoot, the leader of the Rapid Claw Kin and brother of Bearnard aka Rolly. They share a “J” aka a jar of honey and learn about the Bluefield and Rapid Claw agreement. Suspicions are confirmed; something smells fishy and it isn’t Babou this time.
