The other in the tap room smelt the horrid smell for burnt stew coming from the kitchen keep on there discussion of what to do next. They decide to go check out the manor house Max has been living there and said it safe to go to his house. After Frolly is done with cleaning the Pot he heads to the docks to see if his order is in and is very happy his elven cloak has arrived and gladly pays the shopkeeper but is sad his new shoes are out of his price atm but the owner offers to hold them for him. Happy with his new green fancy cloak he heads back to the inn to meet up with the group. Caela and Fas are asembling arrows as Tanner is filling the other in on what he learned from there good friend The smith. to work the Mithral they need to collect him a few items Quicksilver /White Coal made from Dwarf Ginseng / and Fairy Dust.At the talk of Fairy Dust Max is like that’s kind of gross but i guess i could save some. Frolly comes in and shows off his new cloak and it doesn’t seem to be doing anything . He thinks he has been had so he talks to Fas about going to visit the shop that night. The decide to pack for the move for the trip to the manor. Frolly and Fas say there sorry but they have something to do before they heafd out the next morning and leave Max Caela and Tanner to pack.
They head to the dock under the cover of night and scope out the shop. after they get a idea of the the guards rounds they get to work studying the doors after getting an idea of how long it will take to get in they hang back for the gaurd next trip around and they to set to work on the ally door. Fas sat nding on frolly’s shoulder disarms a trap above the door . but frolly has problems with the lock and after a few tries. fas hears the sounds of boots on snow and warns frolly so they can duck for cover. unlucky tonight frolly get caught by the guard but talks his way out leaveing fas to hide in the ally wating an hour for him to return. Finaly after the 3rd attempt they mange to get in. Fas cast candle light on the halfling and they enter. they get to work casing the place and looking for the boxes that the cloak came out of after a few tries they mange to open a few and find what they looking for the other cloak shoes and they decide to grab some ink / journals / quills and clothes and take off back to the inn and split there loot.

They decide to enter and see who has been here following the tracks for a while after coming to a few cave ins along the awy they hear a chating in a room up ahead. After some scouting the halfling returns and and informs him that is 5-6 robed figures chanting in-front of a decaying corpse nailed to the wall . The group thinking this cant be good decide they need to take care of these evil priest. they stow the lantern and head in slowly and the archers set up to shoot first.
