Continuing to be involved in Ork tribal negotiations. Boring as watching paint dry, except for the murder attempts and the Thief shenanigans. Swordmaster is pleasingly flamboyant, Troubadour is unexpectedly bland, and only Nethan seems to have any talent for investigation.
So we did some digging together and found a hostile Nethermancer with Cadaver Men pets. And by we, I of course mean my magic was invaluable in establishing this before we ran into cannibalistic undead slaves. Undead Struggle proved very effective and the rest are still obsessed with who strikes the killing blow. Perhaps some sort of fever? Or maybe just inferior mental processes.
Cadaver Men dispatched, assassins killed, Nethermancer routed. I believe we have retrieved the grimoire. Things are looking up.
