“A fountain that spouts water which heals all sickness has erupted from the ground. "
It was discovered by Aranhil Thunderseeker and Sarabelle that Valika Songcrafter was actually an Arenea . She was killing people at Highforge Family Mines, including Ruloc Phousus and was killed by them. The healings that were reported were actually the dwarves that were poison by the Aranea and were in the process of healing their debilitation.

“Clerics are stymied as to how to remove a bizarre desecration that has fallen upon their small temple located on ”/wikis/highforge-honor-cemetery" class=“wiki-page-link”>Highforge Honor Cemetery."
Tukania is always trying too hard to be accepted and she has found that a bunch of Wights are trying to get to the city via the Cemetery.

-Did you saw the worm?

-Umju… – shunts his shoulders Dinouk
-Can you tell what kind of worm it was?
-It was a Carrion Crawler. – answers Freduk
-It was a Giant Centipede! – answers Barnik almost at the same time
-Ont’now…. – answers Dinouk in a blurb
-Nothing to said, Barnik, it was a Carrion Crawler.
-But I saw no tentacles in its mouth… – answers Barnik
-That’s because you never pay attention. – answers Freduk and continues – I know it wasn’t a giant centipede because it wasn’t flattish!
-Carrion Crawler are fatter than giant centipedes, like you,
-Are you saying I’m fat like a Carrion Crawler?
-Not in your face.
-I will hit you in the head with a stone!
-Stop! Stop! Can you describe it?
-Of course I can describe it. What are you implying? It was large sized or bigger….
-No it was medium sized or smaller, It was large and long like a worm, but it was medium sized…
-You dimwit! It was large sized! – shouts Freduk very angry
-It was no bigger than me or you, Freduk!
-Shoooorty! It was LARGE! – shouts Freduk
-Wait a minute! Stop! Stop! What color it was?
-Blueish!
-Redish! – shouts Barnik at the same time
-Can you really describe what you saw?
-Of course!
-Yes!
-Ont’nou….
-Ok, ok! Let’s continue. Did it had a special characteristic?
-I fell cold in the air…
-I fell the area hot to the touch…
-Oise? – answers Dinouk
-It can’t be hot and cold at the same time, stupid dwarf! – shouts Freduk
-Yes, you are right about one thing at last: it can’t! Or you are wrong!
-Let me place my hands around your neck for a while, you stupid dimwit!

The Goblin Woods Path

The Goblin Woods Path
XP = 1201
Synopsis:
The Band of the Wolf finds a route to Highforge outside of the Duke’s Road using the Black Woods and the Mountains. Goblins start to follow them and attack them. Vylgrykk is using scrying magic (locate, etc) to find the box that Kosivikh gave to Kagb. The goblins attacking chant “Kagb Quest!, Kagb Quest!” referring to the mission given to Kagb by Kosivikh. The goblins follow the adventurers and try to kill them to get the treasure and the location of the Caverns of Quasqueton. The adventurers use one charmed goblin to lure the magic away giving him Kagb’s small chest and telling him to go in the opposite direction.

Arriving to the domain of Highforge they are stopped by the frontier guard who is in the lookout for goblins. The adventurers were interrogated but they weren’t trusted (perhaps the shadow elves or the normal elves on the group, perhaps the natural “1”) and were arrested.

A day later they were interrogated again by the “Gnome King” Dorfus Hilltopper, Patriarch Snorri Spanglehelm and the Captain of the Army Frolina Dragonshield. The Band of the Wolf gave them the location of the Caverns of Quasqueton in exchange of their freedom. They can do business but their papers have been confiscated and need permission from the Gnome King to leave Highforge.

The Books
Book #1—A historical work, this book, written in the common tongue, outlines the history of the civilized area within 100 miles of the stronghold location. It contains nothing remarkable. Reference Tome for the skill Knowledge (History).

Book #2—This tome is apparently an encyclopedia of various types of plants. Although the various illustrations given within provide a clue to its topic, it is written in the language of elves, so it will not be understandable to a reader who does not know the elfin tongue (unless a read languages spell is used). Reference Tome for the skill Knowledge (Nature).

Book #3—This volume appears unremarkable at first glance, seeming to be a notebook with many handwritten entries of undecipherable runes and markings. It is actually a diary kept by Zelligar, and it details one of his adventures from the distant past, written in his own hand. The writing is not discernible unless a read languages spell is used. This book is really of no value to any finder, but a book dealer/scribe/librarian would pay up to 50 g.p. for it. Of course, if the book is sold in this manner, the seller risks a 40% chance of word of Its sale getting out as a rumor, with attendant problems developing as those who hear of it seek out the finder for further details.

Book #4—This work, written in the common language, discusses weather. Although well-illustrated with drawings of meteorological phenomena, descriptive text is sparse. Some cryptic notes written in the margins were apparently made by Zelligar, but these are undecipherable without a read languages spell and are actually nothing more than notes such as a student would make in studying the work to highlight important points. Reference Tome for the skill Knowledge (Geography)

Book #5—This work, written in the common language, discusses engineering. Well-illustrated with drawings and diagrams. Some notes written in common in the margins were apparently made by Roghar, but these are actually nothing more than notes such as a student would make in studying the work to highlight important points. Reference Tome for the skill Knowledge (Architecture and engineering).
