It’s business as usual in Tirath.
Felston, Denis, Opal, and Pheline (sp?) roll into town to sell off their shipment of Road Head at the Slimy Cod. With that transaction accomplished, they meet up with Lierin, Pheline’s half-sister who has been awkwardly looking for them. Pheline immediately proves herself worthy of being a member of the party by finding wild cider ingredients, decreasing the overhead of Felston’s Floating Fermentary.
After some revelry, which causes a rough morning for some of the party, they make their way back to market to brew and shop.
Soon after completing the brew, they are set upon by a swarm of rats and a few dire rats. The party dispatches them, though Denis takes some damage. The next wave brings a swarm of cockroaches and a few giant cockroaches. Felston (OOC, with the help of Tim) suddenly realizes that the critters are heading to the mainland as if they are abandoning the city.
Felston offs the last giant cockroach and calls everybody into the wagon so they can GTFO just as the ground begins to quake and sink beneath their feet.
Could this be the tragedy of Tirath we’ve been led to expect? Surely no.
