    Right, the Baron has thus been brought onto your side. I'm going to perform a bit of a time-skip next, to the point where you enter the Caer Byr and go looking for the Horn of Abaddon. Technically, this means skipping past a short scene where you meet your fellow evildoers in the Seventh Knot, who have their own mission to be performing in Farholde. Mostly, that involves keeping any curious adventurers away from the Horn while you do what needs to be done.

    For summary purposes, the Seventh Knot (also known as the White Ravens) consists of the following:
    - Elise Zandira, a witch who worships a being she refers to as the 'Endless Winter'. She's a white haired human woman.
    - Dorstan Alfson, a half elven barbarian from the north. He wields a great sword and is fanatically dedicated to Elise, while being generally taciturn to everyone else.
    - Tallus 'Trak' Rackburn, a human ranger. He's a bounty hunter, and may be in love with Elise. Generally, he's a quiet sort.
    - Titus 'Trik' Rackburn, a human cleric of Asmodeus. Brother to Tallus, and indeed looks virtually identical with his long dark hair and pale skin. He's a friendly and personable sort who looks almost entirely out of place in such an evil organisation.

    Since interactions with these folks are likely to happen to only one or two of you at a time, they will be handled by PM. Because I do love some covert scheming. Likewise, if there's anything else you want to get done before leaving Farholde, PM it to me. Schtein in particular will need to inform me what he's up to with that bodyguard who, I suspect, is not long for this world.

    Otherwise, decide on your spell selections for the next day, and we'll be off into the Caer Byr in search of the Horn of Abaddon. Which is a lovely sort of holiday destination.

    Oh, and before I forget, everyone gains 600 xp for forging an alliance with the Baron.

    We may have. I've been contacting some other people, seeing if they want to take part in place of the ones we've lost. Granted, four people is still enough, but more would be better (and give folks a greater chance of survival).

    In the mean time, best to have Quint explain his plan for getting past and/or dealing with the sentient tree.

    And I am entirely sure that painting the faces green was completely necessary

    Still, it works. The strealth bonus for being invisible puts Quint's skill bonus sufficiently high that I'm not even going to roll. The Treant is still out there though, so be careful in future.

    I've got a huge amount of fire spells and with a creature vulnerable to fire, I think we can kill it, unless it has a load of tree servants, which would be slightly annoying.

    Heh. Anyway, you're at the Horn now, and the invisibility spell has expired. Now there are technically five possible ways in, though only three are accessable without climbing or flight. Chose your entrance, and let's get on with reclaiming the Horn.

    (Incidently, the Horn does look like a giant skull face with three eyes.)

    Right, I believe that's two votes for going in via the Maw? That being the most obvious entrance, and the one that Schtein scanned particularly.

    For future reference, in explorations of dungeons etc, I will assume that the whole group is following the actions of whoever happens to post first. If you wish to split up (and it is not advised, at least right now) make sure to clarify that point in your posts.

    I'm also generally going to be generous and assume that you are always exploring cautiously, looking around, watching for traps, that sort of thing.
