We made it to Waterdeep. We decided to stay in the North Ward at The Pampered Traveler. Expected travel time to Ardeep Forest is two and a half days.
I told our new friends the tale of the Key of Flame. I also had to tell them why I was summoned to the Font of Knowledge in Waterdeep. They seemed more interested in that tale than the Key.
I checked in to the Font early, though I wasn’t due for days yet. The leaders seemed perturbed, but agreed to meet with me early the next day for my trial.
At the trial, I owned up to everything I was a part of, but Braden took full responsibility for casting spells on the priest in the orphanage. I was absolved in the end, though they had a task they wanted me to complete for them.
We spent a few days upgrading our weapons to include silver, either embedded in new weapons or worked into the lining of current weapons. I believe we also created some holy water. That part is all a blur.
On the 6th day we left for Ardeep Forest. In the Forest, we were attacked by trolls, and Dungar was killed.
