MAIN EVENTS (Year dwa, summer)
The Triumvirate organizes a hunting party to slay Old Crackjaw. After a challenging bout of battling on the water the giant turtle is slain.
Grigori confronts the Triumvirate in public. He has a crowd sympathizing with this insolent fool. A fierce debate in public ensues as Easra points out that the Triumvirate has slain many beasts in the defense of the Realm and Marmax highlights the prosperity Trimere and its citizens are enjoying. Esara and Marmax use their commanding presence and logic to humiliate Grigori who goes storming off.
Grigori is charged with Sedition, Triumvirs Esara and Damien then decide to make the arrest personally. Sneaking up on Grigori at his in a game of cat and mouse begins as Grigori uses his magic to try and escape, and he succeeds leaving no trace Damien can track and follow! Informing Marmax of their disastrous efforts, Marmax leads the Triumvirate, guards, and local casters on a search of the city as they sought Esara’s arcane mark she had emblazoned on Grogori’s gut.
As morning dawns Grigori had not been found but the Triumvirate waits outside the only open city gate for Sentry and they find him, following further outside the city they ambush the master of sedition. But again Grigori was able to escape Esara and Damien who has snuck up on him. Using his speed magic and invisibility Grigori sped away with only Marmax on horseback chasing him down as Triumvirs Damien and Esara were left far behind. Grigori tries to magically assault Marmax’s steed Rolling Thunder, but Marmax’s faithful steed does not succumb. Marmax flings himself off Rolling Thunder and he and Grigori wrestle on the ground, but Grigori slips free and runs again! This time Marmax runs him down to exhaustion and Grigori collapses. Marmax trusses him up like a captured beast and takes him back to Sentry.
Grigori is subsequently interrogated in the dungeons of Sentry. Grigori hired by agents from Fort Drelev. He left to rot in the Sentry Dunjon.
The Triumvirate continues exploring south of Sentry to find the rumored troll tribe, but while traveling is set upon by a Lucrotta, only Esasra devastatingly quick blades and missiles of magic are able to lay the beast low.
Exploring the Triumvirate finds some natural hot mud pits that have a pungent smell, home of the Tendriculous.
A terrible plant creature that regenerates all but fire damage. It’s tentacles lashed out grabbing the Triumvirs and it swallowed both Marmax and Damien. At different times each of the Triumvirs bordered upon death, but Damien struck with mighty vengeful blows, negative energy lashed out from Damien, and Esara blades kept of her cuts of death.
