Seeing little reason to continue their ruse, they take turns standing and no longer bother with the disguises. In fact, they walk for several intervals of the journey, so they might stretch their legs.

OOC: Will add more when I get home from work; don't have the map I need with me.

The lonely road continues on. The roads that cross it on the map seem to be walled off; some with doors and others without. None of the boxes, bodies, or other debris litter this section of the road; it's well maintained, considering nobody is here.

Around the distance that might have been a days travel on foot, the hearse passes a stone tower built right into wall of the tunnel. Though machicolations and balistrarias wrap the circumference of the tower, nobody is here to man it.

But it seems like a good place to stop. After a bit of lockpicking, they heroes enter right through the front door. Inside the tower, they find empty weapon racks, empty armor manequins, and empty beds. A small kitchen occupies the second floor, but it too is empty.

A top the the tower they find a tonne-stack of dry timber and a large barrel of oil. Next to the kindling, they find a small box filled with tinder twigs. Must be some kind of signal fire.

For whatever reason it's been abandoned, the beds make for a comfortable rest (despite being a few inches too short for everyone except the brother's Rihn). In the morning, the head out.

The next day is equally un-interesting, and ends at a similiar tower! This one, too, has been deserted. After a more thorough search, this tower provides no further clues.

So they sleep. And set off the next morning.

Comparing their surroundings to the two maps, the party surmises that they must be getting close to the "loop" that the maps says winds up to the Dwarven Road.

So ... what to do with the wagon and Rothé team?
Obviously, it's too loud to just roll into Dwarven territory with.

Shocked
Vangg's best estimate is that the "loop" (which is a ramp) connects with the Undermountain Highway, less than half a day south of the Wise Stone. He'd expect the rise to be heavily guarded; but then again, he would've expected this stretch of tunnel to be guarded, as well. Also, there is "probably" a permanent portal there; but Vangg's never heard mention of it.

OOC: Wow, 5 days without access. It feels good to be back.

Swifthand wrote:Davin suggests we slaughter the Rothe team and eat some thick steaks, salting the rest to add to our rations (I am sure the extra companions have put a pinch on what we had). Assuming that is agreeable, the Ranger proceeds, dispatching the beasts as humanely as possible. As far as the wagon is concerned, we either leave it whole, or leave it burning - either is fine with Davin.

"So, we are just under a day's travel to the Wise Stone. It is time we alert the Emperor, the Velatian Vanguard, and the Watermancers of Imil of our plan and progress. We should suggest they get troops and magic-users ready to man the Wise Stone after we change it to the Tranquil Lake."

The elf grins ferally at the assumed close of the parties plan.

"I suggest something simple to the Emperor: 'We approach Wise Stone. We will change elemental alignment to Water. Need troops and mages to garrison. Force Dwarves to face two fronts. - Ferall's Heroes.' This message will probably suit the Vanguard as well if we just sign it from Straegis. The Imilites are another matter. What should we send to them, Alex? Let us get our Sending's done and get to our business - I can almost taste the fresh air that awaits us once we are done!"

OOC: Vangg is certain there is no other backdoor; this way IS the backdoor.
