Eveningstar 30 Introspection

In my last sitting, I learned that Gairloch (svirfneblin specialty priest of Grumbar) seemed of more use to the party as a buffer and a healer than as a fighter. Though he is well armored, there are others in the party who can take a hit better. Though he has a mean maul, there are others who do far more damage and attack more times per round.  However, the bonuses that Gairloch is able to give with a Recitation and a Prayer spells are nothing to scoff at. And when he is able to cast those spells on a gnome friend who is fighting giants...that is a huge bonus.

I think I'll stay away from the fighting (though it is fun when I have time to summon an earth elemental before battle). I'll continue to bolster, heal, cure, etc. When the time comes, I can always grab the maul and take a swipe or two, without worrying about dying the first time I'm hit.

There was an immediate regrowth of vegetation around the town of Eveningstar after the cleansing of the temple to Eldath. Flora was restored at a miraculous rate, signaling the personal favor of the goddess.
When Gairloch next rejoined the party, they were all prepared to head north: the direction Old Meg had indicated the giants originated. During the walk, it was noted that something was spying on the party from the surrounding forest, but nobody, including the elf ranger, was able to identify the spies. 
The party came upon walls to a keep which was nestled into the side of a mountain. They expected to find giants inside the walls, so spells were prepped, arrows were nocked, and swords were drawn.
The ranger lead the party, checking…

The party was sitting in Katerina's Rest discussing defenses when Azmir Raheem, the owner of the largest warehouse in Padua, walked up to the table and suggested we check out the Degenerate's Temple in the ruins of Khemri to the south. He stated the Khemri had technology unknown in today's world. He then returned to his newly poured drink, dipped a finger in, wasted the first drop, and downed the rest.

Azmir, as mentioned, owns the largest warehouse in Padua. He also runs a crane, unloading supplies from boats and onto the docks. His warehouse is known to have a flowery, spicy scent which wafts into the noses of those who walk by.

When he is out and about in town, he listens more than he talks. He travels with a large bodyguard, a mute rumored t…

The party was summoned to the estate of Lord Tessaril late in the night following the Zhentarim attacks. Many other notable townsfolk were present, including Jelde a priest of Lathander and retired Knight of Myth Drannor. Also present was the previously missing blacksmith, Derthal.

Shortly into the proceedings, a portal opened on the edge of town, and King Azoun's personal representatives appeared with more Purple Dragon support. Gairloch did not know who these representatives were, but the Lord Tessaril bowed to them. The meeting resumed in Tessaril's estate.

The meeting was again interrupted, this time by Old Meg, an eccentric hermit from the west side of town. She was famous for her walking staff, which she liked to bang on the shins of those she sp…
