Aria 1-3 501 4th age
The group spoke with the prisoners at length. Their names were Howell and Gritzh. They had been hired to poison the sacred pond. Their hirers were two women with strange accents and were located in fort Defiance. They were paid some 500 gold and would receive an additional 500 after returning to the fort. As for the reason why, they did not know. Dolanar determined that the contain held a purplish poison.
The group decided to head back to Borderland Gap to put the two into a cell. Reaching Borderland they dropped off the prisoners and spoke with Ewan who relayed his tale of escape from peril some months ago. It was during this discussion with Ewan that Asgar spotted Caleb Bartow along with two men he didn’t know came into the Bitter Waters. Asgar went to speak with Caleb and found him uptight, distant and angry. One of the men with Caleb went over and checked out the group being slightly insulting.
The group decided to head back to Glascow to get instructions from Fletcher Crispus
about other information that they had gleaned from the prisoners and Caleb, that a wizard named Verigas somehow had been freed from being imprisoned and was thought to be in the Shadowwood.
