The dale in which Barond, Carmen and Jacob hail from is but a stone throw from Teva a large town… Well if you could throw a stone 6 hours away then that statement would be correct but none the less the point is it is very close. Anyway, the group walked to Teva arriving late in the afternoon. Compared to where they lived Teva was pretty bustling. Teva even had several Town Criers, one of them a shady fellow named Eric with a K (or Erik for short). Jacob and Barond went to the Temple of Sarenrae while Carmen went to the town’s market to purchase the supplies her master needed.
The Town Crier named Erik was interested why these new comers needed to see the head Cleric in the Church of Sarenrae so badly, as he over heard them saying, he decided to follow them to the Church and listen in. Barond and Jacob first told Priest Boagrius the horror that had happened in their small dale and showed him the book. Boagrius told them he would delever the book to High Priest Godfrey and for them to please stay in town for the night so the High Priest could decipher it.
The pair left the Church and headed for an Inn, Eric with a K (Again Erik for short) followed them and inquired to what they were in town for and why did they have to see Godfrey so urgently. Apparently Jacob and Barond thought Erik was a trustworthily looking fellow and so they told him of what happened in the dale. After words Jacob went to search for Carmen while Barond and Erik got rooms at an Inn for the night.
Carmen finished purchasing the supplies for her master and finished the day wondering around seeing the sites of Teva. Until now she had never been to Teva by herself and never stayed there very long. Jacob found Carmen in a square watching street artists. He informed her of the Inn they would be staying at and the fact they were waiting for Godfrey to try and translate the book. They both went back to the Inn. Carmen put her items in her room and headed back into town while the others eat and enjoyed a few drinks at the Inn. Carmen discovered many places for light night entertainment. Fights, gambling and the like. She participated and observed for a while and then went back to the Inn late in the night.
The next morning the group was summed on Boagrius to come to the Church. Godfrey told them he had been able to read some of the text and had discovered the robed man was a Necromancer looking for three artifacts. An Amulet that summoned the dead from their graves, a Staff to Protect him from the very minions he called forth from the earth and a Ring to control the fowl creatures. He already had the Amulet and be using the book Godfrey had discovered that outside the dales was the Staff.
