In the city of Archangelsk an execution was to be held, yet another river pirate. A half-elf wizard (Gilead), half-orc barbarian (Moonwhistle), and half-orc monk (Frederick) attempted to intervene. Gilean and Frederick fail, however, Moonwhistle is able to cut off a guards arm. Frederick bumps into a person and breaks their leg by accident, pays him 1 gold. Gilead attempts to assist Moonwhistle but ultimately both are knocked unconscious. They are arrested and taken to The Fort.
Frederick, and a dwarf barbarian (Adda) go to the tavern separately while Gilead and Moonwhistle are stuck in a cell. A half-elf cleric (Terra) goes to the town garden to plant spores, then heads off to the tavern for a drink. At the tavern Frederick attempts to gather more information on the execution. Meanwhile, in prision, Gilead and Moonwhistle attempt to break out of their cells, but to no avail. Fredrick finds out that the two prisoners from earlier where taken to The Fort. Terra overhears about bounties for catching river pirates and attempts to look for people to help her. She meets up with Adda and Frederick. Frederick tells the two of The Fort, and they head in that direction in an attempt to meet with the two prisoners from earlier.
As the three are on their way, Moonwhistle and Gilead manage to break down their cell door. Moonwhistle due to his extreme exhaustion, from the previous battle, and hours of trying to escape is quickly knocked unconcious in an ensuing battle with the Guards; while Moonwhistle holds the guards off Gilead is able to escape The Fort by walking out the door. Moonwhistle gets thrown into a pit within the fort (which acts as a sewer way), but miraculously he survived, and made his way along the shores of the River Tazania, because of this blunder the Fort goes on high-alert.
Moonwhistle bandages his wounds. Gilead heads north for Aurora. Since Adda, Frederick, and Terra have no other clues to go by, they too head north to Aurora in search of river pirates. On their way, they run into Gilead (on the 4th day of Travel), and the four travel northward together. On the road, they encounter a horse crash. Terra attempts to heal the horse, but fails. The owner points his pitchfork at Terra. She entangles him, so he throws the pitchfork at her, knocking her unconscious. Frederick fights the man, and beats him into unconsciousness. After this they continue on their travels to the city of Aurora.
They travel further north, encountering a Dire Wolf which appeared to have attack a carriage and was noe in the process of eating the apparent owners. Upon the wolf noticing them, it immediately charges at Adda. Adda, Frederick, and Terra kill the wolf, and search the cart and the bodies. Terra, attempting to skin the wolf, hits it’s bladder, which then sprays all over her. The next day, the four arrive at a small town of Oakmont, approximately 1 days travel from Aurora.
