  • lunch at keep after wiping out hill giants, then drove wagon up to the caves
    • Hoth and Ooli separated to drive back to Brava and focus on starting up their caravan business for a while

    • Shava turned into a giant spider (blindsense), lured it out of it’s cave, and webbed it
    • Wart, Laurent, and Enzo used Minor Illusion to wrap a three-segment mirror around it in a circle, tricking it into petrifying itself
    • Shava turned into a giant ape to lift it onto the wagon
  • cleared the last cave (Kobolds)
  • looted what’s left of the caves, including all the casks and kegs, and the cultist library (books, scrolls, and loose papers)

    • Wart finally nailed the barkeep’s daughter (Elise), then persuaded to come with us to Brava
  • arrived in Brava; delivered goods to Blackstone (30k gp!), then spent the next week looking at properties appropriate for a bar/party HQ with the help of Bryce’s agent
    • found the perfect structure on the waterfront (3-story, 5k sq ft per floor, basement, 15-horse stable, unused granary next door with broken water wheel)
    • Wart negotiated with the owner while Laurent used Detect Thoughts and telepathy to help get the lowest price (10k gp)
    • Elise agree to help train and manage barstaff when we open
    • hired contractors and interior decorators to start working on the place, starting with our living quarters; budgeted 5k for improvements
