Towerfield Saga

Lakewatch, Heart of Civilization and Friendliness

Mara and her father, Hathin Ironcraft, get into an argument, where he blithely babbles on about Ellyl incarnates, the Dream Eater, some Conjunction, and how she needs to be very careful with that Lithrocite inlay.  Eventually he agrees to lead the group back to Mara's home.

On the way, he runs into a puzzle door whose solution he seems to have forgotten.  The door is flanked by two stone statues that start moving as he inputs the wrong symbol in an answer.  Eventually the group manages to input the correct symbol on the first try, and the statues move to open the door for them.

After a visit with Mara's mom, the group heads back into Towerfield, where they are led to the tavern.  There, they find family and friends of everyone except for Mara waiting.  Turns out they've been gone three days!

They report to Rodric in the morning, who is very concerned about this contraband lithrocite that ended up in the Morton farm.  He formally takes the Towerfield Four into service with the Hightowers and sends them off to Lakewatch with an introduction to his brother, Rory Hightower, who rules in Lakewatch, as well as orders for a smith and tailor to get them outfitted with livery and armor with the Towerfield arms.  They arrive that night in Lakewatch to a rude welcome from Bridget Black in the Lakewatch fort.  But, Rory smooths things over and sends them off with orders to the tailor and smith.

The next day, October 11, 4716 AR, the group explores Lakewatch, starting with Canute's daring exploits in Lake Mistvale.  Eventually they confront a shady merchant named Dusty Cardis, who owns up to selling the necklace to the Morton son after considerable shenanigans.  He received the necklace and orders to sell it for the overly cheap price to someone matching Art Morton's description.  He takes his orders from a criminal group called the Hooded Lanterns, who he does not want to cross, and describes how he gets orders and goods from the Lanterns.  He has a crate to be delivered to a boat at the docks for the Hooded Lanterns, and points out the delivery location and instructions in return for being let free to flee the Hightower Valley.
