The Greyhawk Campaign, Report 3

Our time in Hardby was enjoyed by half of the party. The city is run by female chauvinists, so Jarik’s attempts to sell spells might have got him arrested but for the intervention of a kind soul who pointed out to him that his flyer was illegal. Arizha got caught stealing in the marketplace but was released because she was a woman. Bob and the witch got picked up by a group of noble ladies on a bachelorette binge and spent the night a-whorin’ with the ladies. They both received “presents” for their efforts, with the witch bringing home not only a magnificent shield, but also a burning itch down below. On the trail again, the party killed a boar and enjoyed a fine dinner, with a trio of Ogres stealing into camp later that night to steal the left-overs and actually leaving a bit of money to pay for it. On another evening, a fireworks show was seen just a mile south of camp, and Jarik sent his familiar, Tom (a black cat) down to check it out. Tom never returned and the next day, the mage and witch went south to investigate, the rest of the party declaring that they would stay home. Luckily for them, the DM didn’t hear them and had them follow. A blasted region was found with petrified, burnt, and blasted goblins, trolls, and orcs, and a great deal of incidental treasure. Petrified Tom was recovered and carefully packed away for later depetrification, but only after the party looted the bodies and gathered heads that could be sold for the bounties. Jarik deduced that the inhumans had run afoul of a beholder, so the party continued post haste on their way northwest. A brush with gnoll archers across a box canyon left the party hurting, but vengeance came that night when a small party of gnolls stumbled on the camp and were slaughtered, with the thief backstabbing her way through them one by one, Sgt. York style. They never saw it coming. And there was much rejoicing.
