Following Kioko’s directions, they discovered a cave entrance leading to a long forgotten tomb of a warlock Tiefling princess, Trilana, and her 4 warlock advisers, interred with her upon death. One branch for each of the 4 different Warlock pacts known: Star, Dark, Infernal, & Fey, which led to treasures, pain and visions. The artifact was recovered from Trilana’s tomb and the group went north to a nearby large city. There the group split up for the day, to conduct their own affairs. Each of them were in turn visited by Kioko again, though some observed that there was something different about her. She seemed more ominously evil. She told them to meet a new member of the team and to head off to the northwestern mountains to recover another artifact from the Dwarven city there. Only 3 of the original team arrived to meet the newbie (Galvin), with a wagon, at the west gate and they set off (why no one questioned where the others from their group was, I have no idea!). Along the way, they were ambushed by a group of bandits, calling themselves The Blood Hunter Gang. After killing their leader in the battle and taking one of their number captive, the other Blood Hunters fled into the forest. The group ‘coerced’ their hostage to lead them to the gang’s lair. On the way, their captive, Jeb, made a run for it. The team chased after him & after forcing Jeb to trip one of his own traps in the woods, saved & healed him. After being healed, Jeb changed his attitude towards his captors and willing showed the group where the traps in the forrest were, and more importantly, the cave hideout. The team looted the leaders treasures, giving some of the coin to the remaining Blood Hunters to make them look better in the Gang’s eyes, which they also spent the day with, teaching them various other ways of living without thieving. The next morning Kioko appeared via the tree jump ritual, with a new member for the team, Nara, a Shadar’Kai Rogue, and the location of another Relic within a Dwarven City. That day they left the Blood Hunters for the Dwarven city.
