Hekrath was blasted at the bar and attached himself to a nearby gnome. Torment goes over and tries to buy Hekrath more beer to take advantage of him but gnome won’t let him. Zoya is in the corner drinking. Dwarf is with her beer buddies. Everyone sees the dragonborn and gnome fall over. There’s an odd feeling in the air, and the rogue makes for the door. The fireplace flares and there’s a blinding white light. The rogue looks around outside and sees that the world has completely changed. There’s a castle, a river, some forests, and a tall tower. Some guards start advancing toward the bar. The rogue goes to the bar basement to get drunk. The dwarf is checking things out. The guards say “come with us if you want to live.” Everyone except the rogue go with the guards to the castle. Torment is sassy and gets bitch-slapped by a guard. We’re all led into a giant room in the castle with a big ol’ shiny sword and gemstone encrusted throne. A blue dragon flies in and says, “This is my castle, stay here and we’ll give you jobs and food and stuff. Or you can leave, but it’s dangerous out there. The weirdo monks are cobbling bits of universes together to make this place. Since you’re here, why don’t you join our lil’ commune?” Everyone is skeptical, but eventually decides to stay and we’re led to our rooms.
The rogue was drinking and trying to barricade the bar with the bartender and a few others. The guards come a’knockin’ and she surrenders. They take her to the castle, give her the spiel, and she decided to stay. Dragonborn and rogue sleep while Dwarf, Tiefling, and Gnome try to investigate the castle with not much success. After sleeping, we all decide we want to see what else is out there, so we all leave the castle and walk by the bar, so we go in to raid it and the rogue finds 3 kobolds. We kill them and take their weirdo candles and nails. The bar doesn’t have anything useful left in it so we continue toward the bridge to the monk tower.
