May 31- June 1, 25NA
After the traumatic events of the previous session, the party's plans to leave for Sigurd's sword are put on hold.
Declan and Aideen approach and Declan threatens Red Simpson, who seems mostly unafraid of the group and its bluster. Declan decides to take his anger to the Mayor.
The rest of the group along with Baldric return from buying supplies to discover the body of Anne Finnegan in the kitchen. After an angry visit to the Homely Sheep, they leave to find Declan and Aideen on their way to the Courdry home.
During the comparing of notes, Baldric slips away and bewitches Red Simpson as well as burning down the Porter's guild. Upon noticing the fire and Baldric's absence the party splits to go and help put out the fire.
Iliken puts forth a very Goliath challenge at the Homely Sheep, and in an attempt to turn the challenge into a direct conflict suggests the Black Mantle ought to seek a balance by attacking the party's leader — which the town in general has accepted to be Aideen.
Declan gets drunk and wanders the town and out the gate to the home of Grumbar Brighthammer. He is followed by Desmond and the two of them discuss what might be involved in restoring Mrs. Finnegan to life.
Baldric confesses his crime but refuses to be arrested by the sheriff and teleports away.
Illiken, Nancy Healy, and Gareth pursue Aideen who travels to the tower to seek refuge from the Black Mantle and the the death sentence she believes is laid over her head now. She does not get the sympathetic welcome she had hoped but is allowed to remain, with Gareth left as a watchman over her.
Iliken, Declan, and Desmond meet Grumbar at the doctor's office and each of the three give an impassioned speech to attempt to guild Anne Finnegan back to the land of the living.
