See Tharrus's Recap
“There must have been ten of them at least! They just kept coming! We’d cut ‘em down and they just get back up. Never seen anything like it in my life. And the one guy… waaay bigger than the others! When he bashed in the barricade, I’m not ashamed to say I got a little scared. But the other fellas with me were fully capable. We took ‘em down, no sweat. I even killed the big one, myself!
The people in here seemed pretty unfazed, I guess the undead are a regular occurence. I was super impressed by Tharrus. He dug right into the big guy and found a ring in his chest! I didn’t know such things were possible! I got a lot to learn about adventuring, I guess…”
He leans in to whisper, “Oh and that guy Wyne? He snatched a wineskin off the dead ogre and chugged it straight down. Then started wandering off to look for more. We decided to follow him…ya know, to protect him and stuff.”
“When we caught up to him he admitted he was looking for some kind of totem, which I guess brings the undead around? We ended up in a kind of square with a well in the middle. I noticed some glowing figures floating and dancing around the well! Nobody else did, which was super weird, but eventually they believed me. I was pretty scared at first, but it seemed really interesting and it kept calling to me. I decided to be brave and go for it. When I got close I started dancing and I couldn’t stop! It felt great! I called to the others to join and everyone except the lizard guy and Guyuh did. (He sure likes to say his name a lot.)
“And then the weirdest thing happened! We all woke up in this white space. Like nothing was around except this dancing wooden pole in the center of us. It started talking to us… Totally weird! We tried to impress it with our dance moves and Tharrus even turned into a wolf. The pole must have liked him best because it suddenly turned into a tree-lady! She was super nice, but she did a weird thing. She broke off her finger and gave it to Tharrus! She said her finger could direct the undead and that we had freed her with our dancing. Cool! The next thing we knew, we were back at the well and it was daytime. We all felt super awesome from our time with the tree lady.
“We went off to find some undead to practice with the staff, and the others got distracted by some weirdo bird-people playing cards. They started tossing scalps on the table for money and I just sat back and watched. I don’t have so much money so I didn’t want to spend any of it. I need to save everything I can…”
