Shortly after docking, they make their way through the Sunwood, towards Aestra. As they set up camp they uncover a Treant who says he will assist them in their travels since they were able to slay the Monstrous Centipedes that had paralyzed it. After coming in contact with an Amber Dragon and hearing the tales that the Treant had to share, meeting an Amber Dragon, and hunting, they made their way to an ancient shrine to Forlas where they communed with the wilderness and they were then transported right outside of Aestra through a door within a tree.
It seems the Treant was also a druid.
Arriving in the city they set up their lodging, bought of few things and was alerted to a play that was going to be put on in the Aestra Theatre. Arwan Waylock stayed in order to view the play and gather information, while the rest of the party journeyed back to Sapphire Port to check in on Mira Strongtide.
The play, entitled “Sunda en’ Dhaera”, revealed an assassination attempt on Leena Solastia. Arwan Waylock impersonated a sun elf and got Quilla Sundrop to reveal that she was in fact working with the Waylock family and that the warlock’s lycan brother Varis Waylock is working with her! Making his way to the basement, the warlock tied up the daughter, impersonated her on stage (poorly), and thwarted the assassination. This revealed the warlock as the lost “dead” Waylock son, causing the Lycan Brother to hunt the warlock. Arwan Waylock made his way out swiftly with the daughter and commandeered a horse and made their way to Sapphire Port a few hours behind the rest of the party.
