The sealed letter that the vizier wrote was conclusive proof that he planned on marrying the Sultan’s daughter and killing the Sultan after obtaining “the treasure” from the Cave of Wonders.
The group decided to set out for the cave in 3 days, but in that time they would try to disrupt the Vizier’s plan. They left the safety of the cave, seeking transportation to take them to the Slave Camp. Finding a wheat field, they talked to the farmer to try to secure transportation. As they were talking, a contingent of royal guards, 2 elephant soldiers, archers, the Vizier, and The Jackal was approaching.
The group hid in the fields, but they were going to discover the minotaur. Kaibosh Follensby cast a COMMAND spell on the elephant, making him charge into the Vizier’s sedan chair. In the resulting chaos, the group escaped, but the elephant and the rider were executed.
Half the retinue returned to the palace, with Jazir the Vizier and The Jackal. Kaibosh Follensby sent a grasshopper to convince the other elephant that he wasn’t safe in such a murderous crew, causing yet another ruccus. As the remaining soldiers attached the rampant elephant, the group charged, casting ENTANGLE.
The minotaur cut one of the remaining soldiers in two, causing the soldiers that weren’t trapped in plant roots to flee.
Nargle “The Sharp” went back into the city to get The Deacon of the local church to resurrect the elephant. The other elephant took them to a cave that served as an elephant graveyard.
More soldiers returned, searching the fields for the group. The Deacon asked for a distraction so they could save the elephant. The group lit the wheat fields on fire, causing the army to retreat.
The minotaur, seeing the farmer and his children passed out from the smoke, charged into the burning field to save them.
The Deacon raised the elephant from the dead, healed the farmer’s family, and the minotaur. He returned to the city, his deal with Nargle complete.
The elephants decided to leave the city, returning to their natural habitat on the trail of tears, the path the elephants take to the graveyard to pass on.
The group decides to follow…
