tends to Memphisto
's wounds with the bare material he has left to do so. A basic bandage will have to do for now, and Memphisto
feels only slightly better... The cleric then turns to Albin
and starts muttering the words to a passage of the holy scripture of the True Light: immediately Albin
feels a warm, tingling sensation starting deep inside his chest, and slowly but surely it spreads out through his arms, legs and head. After a couple of seconds the tingling disappears and Albin
feels much better.
The adventurers make their way back to the main road through the overgrown forest path. By the light of the moon and stars the road is quite clearly visible and the trip back to the village of Jodcar takes them as just about as long as it would in broad daylight. After traveling without delay for an hour or two the silhouettes of the sleeping village can be clearly seen up ahead. No smoke curls up from any of the chimneys and behind no window can a light be seen. Even the Hunter's Moon is dead quiet, its guests all fast asleep.
After softly knocking a couple of times, Giles the innkeeper groggily opens the door in his nightgown, holding a candle. "I ought to charge extra for letting you merry-makers in at this time of night..."
He grumbles as he closes the door and walks upstairs to go back to bed...You safely made it back to the village of Jodcar, let's move on to Chapter 9: A well-deserved rest.MechanicsStatus
