Once reunited, the party met in Skaarheim and began to gather information about the dungeon crawl, which was about a week away. After scouting the town out and learning a bit about its people and places, the party met with an old friend by the name of Petrikov. There, they purchased potions and other magical items in preparation for the coming struggles. Two members began to duel against each other to test their strength and impressed the Jarl, who invited them to his feast. Just before they ate, however, the party opted to destroy a witch who made her home in a nearby swamp. Two members were lost in the battle, though one was restored upon returning to Skaarheim. Now the party rests and prepares for the upcoming dungeon crawl.
