Re: (065) An Unlikely Rendezvous

The Lobby (Helmut, Dorgan, Josiane, and the Pilgrims)

| There are two principal routes from the lobby to the kitchen.

The most direct is via the passage-way which Giant Guntram damaged, all the way along the inside of the outer wall to the refectory and then the kitchen. None present have absolute intelligence of this route, although it might be guessed, or figured out by quick council.

The other route is via the chapel; back the way you came, then across the courtyard. This way is a bit longer, and will expose the flock to the other PCs in the chapel, as well as the damage and defacement to the chapel.

Therefore I will assume you use the former route. |


After a hasty conference Helmut, Dorgan, and Josiane soon ascertain the most direct route to the kitchens, before Helmut leads them through the austere passages, picking a route through the collapsed section, through the cloister, past the domiciles and the privy, and finally into the refectory.

Here Helmut breaks out the remainder of his travelling rations and shares it among the hungry flock. They accept this offering eagerly and hungrily, scarcely pausing for a word of prayer before devouring the hard, brown bread, dried strips of meat, and hard cheese.

The weary lot look at the mess about them despondently as they eat...

The Highbough abides.

"My Lady, perhaps we should seek to rejoin the others of your party?" suggests Helmut of Josiane, seeing the pilgrims now satisfied (or as satisfied as they are likely to get given the present situation).

Highbough says, "I'm worried about Wen and the others. They've been gone a long time. You there--I think your name starts with 'B' (indicating Beringar), follow me and we will check on them."

He knows the way past the shadow-trap, etc.

Highbough really doesn't want to be creeping around alone, with Nizzib lurking somewhere out there.

The Refectory (Helmut, Dorgan, Josiane, and the Pilgrims)

It doesn't take the weary pilgrims long to devour the small meal of trail rations set before them; then they start looking for water and clearing places to rest a while. It has been a long trip on foot and they are all tired.

Our heroes set off across the courtyard, and return to the chapel...

The Chapel

Meanwhile Highbough orders his nameless man-servant to escort him below and then descends the stair in pursuit of his fellows...

Re: (065) An Unlikely Rendezvous

Given that she has somewhere in the region of three weeks worth of elvish waybread with her if I recall aright, Josiane will make haste to provide the hungry pilgrims with a weeks worth to help assuage their hunger, saying a prayer of thanks and protection over them as she distributes the food.

Once she is as satisfied as she can be as to their security given the circumstances, she will nod her head in answer to Helmut's suggestion.

"Agreed, Lord Helmut. We have a missing comrade to account for. Let us rejoin the rest of the company."

O.O.C: Sorry, all! Trying to keep up but it's a little hard at the moment! :( Things will hopefully improve in a couple of weeks! :) )

Armando, having rested a few moments and tended to his appearance and attire while the others went about their business, takes this opportunity to join Highbough as he descends once again into the pit.

Re: (065) An Unlikely Rendezvous

| Unbeknownst to those below, Ulric, Beringar and Valorn spot Josiane, Dorgan, Helmut, and the pilgrims across the courtyard--moving about outside the refectory. They decide to investigate and join them there... |

The Refectory

Ulric, Beringar and Valorn get a quick update on events from Josiane, and agree to oversee the pilgrims setting the refectory and kitchens to right. Given that evening is coming on, it seems a good idea to establish a safe camp, and what better place to do it than adjacent to a properly equipped kitchen??

This being agreed, Josiane, Dorgan, and Helmut are free to return to the chapel and follow after the others...
