25 days into the journey the party arrives at Yorkin. The giant stone walls loom in the distance as they travel down the road. “Your weary bodies seem to scream with anticipation at the welcoming sight of these walls as they steadily grow closer. From this distance you can see the guard tower on the southern side or Yorkin and on the northern side you can see the image of a sun at the top of a steeple. Pelor’s sun is beckoning for its favored servants: The sons of Lucrecia.” On the way they see a man clad in Guardian Armor. This is Guardian Tole. Upon discovery of the Party’s intentions Tole tries to get them to turn in Giles to the bounty office when they get to town.
Moor Stormhammer: After turning Giles in to Sentinel Wilkins, Moor made his way to the local priest and tithed his recent gold earnings. The Priest, noticing that Moor was an albino, praised his devotion to the sun god and asked for Moor’s help to dig some graves in the catacombs.
Arthur: Arthur initiated conversation with Guardian Tole on the road outside of Yorkin, and regretfully refused to accept the 1000gp reward for Giles’ bounty. After they had turned him in to Sentinel Wilkins, Arthur went to Tom Thompson’s Tons of Tinkerings and priced schematics for a scope for his rifle: 50gp for the schematics 100gp for Tom to make it himself. He then traveled to The Vulgar Horse where he questioned the elf, later known as Ladril Cloudwind, until the Elf was forced to retire upstairs out of exasperation. He was then propositioned by the barkeep to burn down The Blue Smile for money. The bartender let on that he would provide an alibi and exchanged a glance across the bar with someone else for which he was obviously already providing this service. Arthur then went to the Blue Smile and got a free drink bought for him by a nobleman. The noble promptly left after Arthur failed a bluff check when boasting about how he singlehandedly brought down Giles. He also warned the barmaid against Arnold Hearse’s plans for the Blue Smile. After Linux and Moor arrived they were approached by Sheila Nadie who runs Yorkin’s entertainment. She asked the boys if they were interested in fighting in the arena. Arthur took her up on this task and was told his reward would be 300gp or free roam in the brothel for the remainder of his stay in Yorkin.
Linux: After dropping off Giles, Linux made his way to the Mage’s Guild in town where he met a Wizard and his Familiar Fornak the Imp. The Wizard then told Linux that if he was interested and learning the dark arts that he should return that night. The wizard was waiting with a table and a blank book. Linux then had to scribe beginner’s spells from the Wizard’s book into his own.
