4th Week

While dining the illusioned gnome who Gorra and Sid met in Southwatch joins them at the table. It is clear he has been casing the party for several weeks and is only now revealing himself. After brief banter, Thola casts dispel magic to attempt to remove his illusion, the gnome counterspells and Thola counterspells his counterspell removing his illusion. He is revealed to be very different than the one sitting here a moment before. His skin is grey and waxy, his hair long and black, pulled up into a bun. He has no beard or other facial hair and looks at you with inky black eyes. Sid can identify him as another Breaker Gnome. He does not seem overly concerned with being revealed and proceeds to offer to buy their mithril for 750gp per ingot. He leaves the group after making the offer, dropping a small object in Sid's drink. It is actually several objects: five small shards of blackened, twisted, and ruined metal that - once upon a time - might have fit together in a small, delicate sculpture. Further examination hints that this metal "was once" mithril, but is no longer. The arcane minded in the group quickly realize that no external magical force like elemental, force, or radiant damage could cause this effect, and the two most likely explanations are (a) it was exhausted as part of a magical ritual or else (b) it was exhausted by being used as a vector for a one-off magical item.

  • Gorra - rest relaxation
  • Wolf - train frogs
  • Sid - pit fighting
    • Results: 2 wins, 1 loss, 100gp. Sid is banned from further fights due to accusations of magical cheating
  • Thola - gambling
    • Results: loses half of stake

At the end of the week the gnome (this time disguised as a halfling) meets the party again. On a whim Sid tries to talk him up to 1000 gp / ingot, the gnome counters with 850 with a minimum sale of at least 2. Sid takes him up on his offer and sells his 2 ingots for 170 platinum pieces (freshly minted and stamped with the face of Kleptinax, high exchequer of Gildenhome).

5th Week

  • Gorra - assist in frog training
  • Wolf - train frogs
  • Sid - scroll purchasing and copying to spellbook
  • Thola - research (spending 50gp)


  • Blacken and broken metal shards that once might have been a small sculpture. It appears that the parts once joined together, but whatever the sculpture once was is now beyond recognition without magical assistance beyond your ability to use. (Legend Lore spell required)
