    "Hey!" - Gunnar gets between the drow and the old man - "Chill out, Sarah. We're not the guards nor in service to the law here. We have no right to interrogate anyone. If you want to ask questions, do it politely." - He tries not to get angry or overreact, but he can not fathom her behavior at all - "He has no obligation to answer your queries... We are guests in this town."

    Gunnar can't shake the notion that this drow must be somekind of noble between her people. She bosses people around like the lords and ladies that he grew up serving.

    Thelia looked at the material, trying to see what she could repair with her spell.
    "Please, I can only repair it tomorrow morning," she said to the people showing equipment, "I have first to prepare the necessary spell."

    Then she turned to Sarah and Gunnar
    "We won't win anything with bickering," she said to them.

    "You know how to repair boats," Thelia asked. For some reason, she didn't thought the drow had that kind of training, but Conath had Always said that people had a way of surprising you.

    "Mending can't repair boats," Thelia said, "at least that's what they told me. Only smaller stuff. Well, I can only do it tomorrow as I have to prepare, but if you could prepare as many as you can, that would certainly be a help. Then we can do the repairs early in the morning before we leave. I don't think we can leave tonight anyway."

    At least that was solved, Thelia thought, then turning back to the old guy.
    "While I can't mend anything today as I haven't prepared the right spells," she explained, "I could however see if I can help people with health problems. As cleric of Labelas Enoreth I know something about healing."

    The Elder one looking towards Gunnar Usually the upstream journey will take less than three days but this depends if the weather is bad or the stream is too strong it might take some times. we can't offer to much but a shelter and good fish soup is always a good way to quench your stomach. By the way, Tore is my name and here I am the eldest and my wisdom lead the village
    with these words, he greets you one by one. Thelia finds out that she can help some relief some pain from the folks there is no particular need for anything different from your skills, which are more than enough to help them. The Small village is grateful for four your help.

    The night falls on the village, slowly all the fisherman come back to the small dock. Tore gave to you keys of one empty house, it is not too much but it has been cleaned up and all the beds have been prepared for you. You Enjoy your dinner and some local stories provided by Tore, he used to be an Illmatari he joined the Broken Ones and a very respected one but slowly the old age starts to take its toll on him and his body.

    Before going to bed Raziel ask Tore if he can borrows some carpenter's tool, Tore agrees without asking any question, all of you notice a spark of creativity in Raziel eyes and before going to bed you go and check on Raziel works. with your surprise, he is trying to realize and improved fishing hooks and improved Crab traps, he is following a blueprint designed by him.

    "Nice," Thelia said when she noticed the improved traps, "and pretty clever to come up with that so quickly. Hopefully they will provide us with a boat in exchange for my healing, my and Sarah's mending and your improvements."

    "Fascniating with the hooks and traps. I agree with Thelia. We'll be able to get this boat in a jiffy. Or as in my language of my race:" Sarah spoke in common.

    "It's a snap." Sarah uses Drow Sign Language to communicate.

    Jeremy has taken the afternoon to check up anyone he known in the village, and to ask after his family in the area. "I've picked up a bit of my own healing during the last few weeks in Fireshear. I can help with that as well."

    Seeing Sarah's use of DSL, Jeremi is intrigued. "So that lets you speak without needing the other person to hear you?"

    Gunnar stays up late, sitting outside the house, thinking and avoiding company. Later, he silently enters the house and goes to sleep.

    The next morning, he stays around for any help he might be able to give, but watches closely the spellcasting by his companions, making mental notes. His mind works around the gestures, the words of power and the eventual holy symbols and material components, to focus on the magical energy flow and the alterations on the material world brought by that energy. His memory goes back to brief lessons of when he was in his early teens on wizardry and sorcery that were half-forgotten. In his mind, something clicks.

    With a half-smile, he goes back to the house and takes his journal to add some notes to previous writings.

    Sun is rising on the village, the night passes safely and all of you wake up fully restored, Thelia is the first one to get up and prepare for this day, right after her Sarah emerges from her bed and starts preparation for the rituals. After her prayer, all is set to cast the spells. All the fishing equipment has been arranged on the ground ready to be repaired. when all of you have arrived Thelia and Sarah start casting spells. All the village is astonished by your capabilities, all of them are amazed by you when the spells have been casted a silence fell on you only to be interrupted by joyful noises and applause.

    well done heroes says one of the villagers Illmater send his help, praised be the broken one says another one. Tore is smiling and you can notice her face be relieved.

    and now we will give this gifts to this wonderful village says Raziel showing his marvelous creations, at first the crowd is curious and skeptical but after a very practical explanation the morale changes to optimism

    I can't say enough how much we appreciate your actions, you can take any boat you like says Tore cheerfully.

    Without hesitation you salute everyone in the village and decide to leave, you choose the best boat, load all of your belongings and set sail. Only one thing is left to do Gunnar looks up the sky to get clues for the upcoming weather.

    As mentioned before in the OoC thread, Gunnar will check Survival each day to assess the weather as the party goes. The difficulty is 15 and, with the +3 from the research from the last chapter, plus the +2 from Cunning Knowledge (he can use it 1/day for each skill, but this check is good for 24h anyway), he can take 10 for a net 16, avoiding the necessity for an actual roll, making it just part of the voyage.

    "I hope someone knows how to operate a boat," Thelia said as she looked around. She hadn't put on her armour that morning. She knew one thing about water and that was that trying to get out of your armour while sitting on the bottom of a river or lake was not an easy task.

    You get on the boat open the small sail and then catch the right wind to go upstream, the river is really calm and slow today, there is not so much strength in its current, with the right wind is easy to go upstream. the weather for the day would be in your favor. Raziel is tired so he fell asleep in the boat.

    the morning pass quietly you can see the quiet forest near the shore and the road along the other side of the river. from time to time you can see fishes swim near the boat Jeremi is playing a quiet tone, while Thelia is reading and Sarah is enjoying the landscape. Gunnar and Jeremi are sailing the ship, with this weather for both of them is easy

    in the evening you decide to take the boat ashore and start to make camp.
