Shorty after the defeating the goblin raiders and their Abomination, the townspeople came out to congratulate the victors. The mayor invited the group to a banquet in their honor that evening. Max was hauled off to the local doctors to get well needed medical attention while the rest of the party spent the day exploring the town. Ember took it upon himself to light aflame the remains of every enemy his attacks came in contact with, but was stopped by the resident mad scientist whom wanted to first dissect the creature. That act took most of the day and Ember was happily distracted by random pieces of the giant that were being discarded, not to mention the mysterious object that the scientist proclaimed would blow up the town if it were to combust.
That night at the banquet, things seemed to go over pretty smooth, with the group receiving not only food but an almost endless supply of drinks, to which Max and xxnoobslayerxx took to like a couple of fratboys. Ember showed off his skills by taking a flaming shot while it was still lit, but the surrounding companions didn’t seem to give it the praise it deserved. A young man approached Misty and attempted to offer her a drink and talk to her, but she shot him down before he got a chance. Undeterred he attempted to siphon information from Eliza whom had taken an interest to him, but the most he got from her was wine to the face.
next up was Max. Unfortunatly he could have gotten the same information from a brick wall. He quickly moved to ember, whom gladly agreed to light his hair on fire in an attempt to impress the demon. While he summoned up the resolve to gather himself and make a second attempt, it was quickly foiled by xxnoobslayerxx, whom threw a high proof alcohol in his direction, turning him from the man with the burning hair into the flaming torch. He wasn’t seen or heard from again until the next morning Misty found a vase of flowers by her bedside.
shortly after his departure, the scientist walked up to the group, in his hands were the last remaining piece of the giant; its head. As Ember cremated it the scientist revealed an important piece of information about the creation. One of the materials used was a rare metal that can only be found at one place in the surrounding area, with the 2nd closest being over half a Continent away. With that he bid the party ado and left.
Near the end of their meals, a strange man confronted the party with a riddle. he said “I have a piece of paper and inside it is written a prediction. If you can guess correctly if the prediction will come true you will receive a prize, if not you are in my debt. Write yes or no on the paper to provide me with your parties answer”
After a small discussion xxnoobslayerxx impatiently snatched the paper and wrote yes on it. This answer was wrong, as the prediction was “you will write no” and the man disappeared back into the crowd.
At this point, of course most of the party was too inebriated to recall the happenings of most these events the next morning. They awoke to the sound of Ember lighting a bunkbed on fire, which concluded the night.
