Surviving an encounter with Aathil’s past, our six Adventurers joined a new caravan heading north from Waterdeep into the Mere of Dead Men.
Traveling as guards with laborers, teamsters, and the Cult of the Dragon (who they have tracked since Baldur’s Gate) they travelled 10 days north, spotting the Mere on the 7th day. Raised from the evil waters of the Mere they ran afoul of Ogre Zombies and Trolls, but were able to reach the Carnath Roadhouse without much loss of life.
Searching the road house Saphira made and then lost a stable boy fried, in a most gruesome way. However they were able to find where the stolen treasure was being transported into the Mere, by Lizardfolk. After dealing with the Cult of the Dragon at the road house our six Adventurers headed down into a tunnel leading into the Mere of Dead Men.
