The wilds of feywin contain creatures both kind and unkind. the stranger, who unknowingly came to your rescue, was one finnegan brambleshoot. after a brief conversation, he bestowed a gift in the form of a small wooden bean to syracen before making a hasty retreat and heading deeper into the forest, apparently in anguished pain. as the party returned to emberfast, you happened upon the remains of a trappers wagon. never being ones to waste, the cart was righted and tethered to a reluctant syracen who served as the beast of burden. upon reaching cruxwanes, your findings at wraithwood were relayed to octavious. while the absence of vanthor’s body left him extremely uneasy, he also informed you that the other items outlined in the scroll’s cryptic text were beginning to appear around emberfast. while you were away, a tendershard crucible surfaced. the whispers of its origin is said to be the seven but that name is nothing but a broken legend passed around thieves guilds to scare initiates into following the herd. even still, this fel-forged artifact has apparently entered the city and octavius aims to track it down. a few days pass and eventually, nigel obtained another lead. nightwish, a flower known for its properties as an opiate and favor among necromancers who use it to aid the dead in their re-animation to the living has been found destined for the highhouse of one tandus quint. octavius has instructed you to travel to this estate by cover of night and attempt to locate the shipment of nightwish, the tendershard crucible or anything else shadow-sourced you might encounter. nigel has laid out a path for you to cross from boroughs to banks by a servants passage known as the southspine bridge.
