An unlikely group of mourners gathered at the Restlands outside of the small town of Ravengro. Amongst the locals that knew Petros Lorrimor, a few outsiders had come to pay their respects. Amongst them were Illura Del Shar, Manx, Zemye and Jane.
After fighting off a group of superstitious local farmers, Petros’ body was able to be laid to rest. The outsiders were invited by Petros’ daughter, Kendra, back to the house to hear his will read.

Unfortunately, while in the crypt, the group were attacked by giant centipedes, and Jane was hurt badly by the poisonous bite of one of them.
