As night descended upon the heroes, they arrived at the town of Haveny. After a brief visit to an alchemy shop just before closing time, they entered the Spring Sprout an inn that caters primarily to halfings, gnomes, and other small folk. Larissa, Wyatt, and Christine dove headlong into a drinking contest, Darlan remained on the sidelines, and Quinn met with Winsome Landy and two other adventurers: a halfling named Peter Dinklage and a dragonborn Dvengier.
After a night of failed shenanigans leaving Larissa with an imprint on her chest vaguely similar to Christine's foot, the group set out to the elven temple. The party came upon a strange scene at an inn called Havel's Cross. The scent of death and blood filled the air as well as smoke and charred bone from a former stable.
Upon further inspection, Quinn and Darlan ambushed some goblins who were ransacking the inn. The party quickly rushed the creatures and sent them fleeing after some aggressive diplomacy. The group collected a large sum of gold from the inn and determined that the goblins were not responsible for the carnage at Havel's Cross. Quinn saw in a vision a humanoid creature eating a freshly killed corpse, and Landy determined that it was likely an undead predator known as a ghoul. The party redoubled their efforts to travel to the temple to discover whether the ghouls took up residence in the ancient site.
Upon entering the dimly lit temple, the heroes found the main chamber empty but for several pillars, an altar, and faded murals. The sounds of crunching bones and slurping were heard in a side chamber, and Quinn's raven familiar confirmed that ghouls had indeed taken up residence in the temple. Two ghouls were quickly dispatched as well as a third which entered from another side chamber.
Do more ghouls dwell in this elven temple? What is the fate of Landy's team? Will the heroes solve the mystery of the elven temple?
