At a tavern in town the group notices a halfling following them and follows him, after catching him he tells them that he was hired by the mayor to follow them and not letting them out of town. after testing this for themselves (the guard wouldn’t let them out of town), the went stealth and snuck back to the castle and “stole” some horses to escape out of the back mountain pass of the city. The guards soon release they have left and pursue them into the old Morse Mountains. After a few days the group gains ground on the guards and settle down to camp for a night.
During the night they were attacked by a group of monks who wanted to know about “the girl” they’ve been traveling with. When the party thought they were defeated the monks were suddenly trapped in the rock. The party ran to a rock druid who had saved them. The druid took them back to his cave and explained his distaste for the monks careless use of the mountains. Uthar found a common interest with the druid (as a rock lovin dwarf) and the druid offered them safe passage to the town they were heading to (the town Malovich went to). Little did they know he meant he’d turn them into eagles.
after adjusting to there new avian bodies, the eagles took off toward the town. After three days flight and an escape from being the pets of a colony of Raptorians, the group found their way to the town. When turned back into their original self’s they searched the town for Malovich. They found Malovich’s home ransacked and found out through neighboring tavern that she had been taken by the guards. The party went to the prison and tried to convince the guards to release her to them (posing as ambassadors of the king who was coming to get her). The failed miserably and locked themselves in the back of the station after killing several guards.
They released Malovich from her celled but were stopped by a legion of guards at the back door. They barracked themselves in the prison as they tried to find a means of escape. Uthar and Centine took several boxes from the confiscated room before Case found a sewer drain in the interrogation room. The four jump into the sewer but Uthar and Centine hurt their ankles. Fleeing down the sewers, Uthar started to pick the lock on his box and failed to see the Carrion Crawler lunge at him. soon both Uthar and Case were paralyzed and Centine defeated the Crawler by throwing a fireball at the monster and piercing it’s skull with a sword blow.
The party escaped from the sewers through a ocean cliff entrance, as Case swam to shore and lowered a rope to the rest of the party. The group escaped from search parties through the woods.
They fled for a few days until came into a small town for food and horses. In the tavern the party intercepted a pickpocket and asked him about a man who had been eying them from the corner of the bound and found out they were now being hunted for 25,000gp by bounty hunters. They made the rogue buy them horse and meet them at the edge of town as they bought a fake room to fool the bounty hunter. Impossibly, After a day of traveling they found out they bounty hunter was right behind them.
