The party was asked to seek out a bandit camp to the south and retrieve an item stolen from the king that was of great importance and required a great deal of care to transport.
The group stopped to try to gather information about it, and learned little. Not wanting to risk wandering aimlessly into the woods, the Tiefling members of the group decided to pose as buyers for this artifact. They found a halfing who was involved with the group, and asked him to escort them to the camp. Knowing that they weren’t the true buyers, he set a pack of feral wolves on them, but was not able to escape. After the party handled him and the wolves, they recovered a stone enchanted to point the way to the camp.
The party followed it and scouted out the camp, finding two buildings each guarded by a handful of guards. The building that held the artifact was guarded by two archers, while the rest of the camp was patrolled by a quartet of halflings and a man with a drake.
Elven Archers from the camp
p<. Attempting to peer inside from the roof, Eris alerted the guards, and soon the entire camp was engaged in battle. The rest of the adventuring party burst out from the woods, and surprised some of the guards. Though it was hard fought, the bandits were dispatched, and no losses were suffered during the battle.
That came after.
One of the buildings contained a lockbox that held the artifact, a large pear-shaped diamond. When X touched it, her body slumped over, and her soul appeared to be contained in the box.
Skye setup a magical platform to carry the unconscious dragonborn and the box back to the city, while inside the crystal,had a vision of a large white dragon.
