01/22/35 – 02/01/35 As the group decides what to do if and when joren answers their note, the sudden appearance of Mara, hidden in the wagon, rocks the party to its core. River is moved by Mara’s tenacity and as they discuss what to to, they decide to go to Sieve together and make a life there. River will have plenty of opportunity among the rich travelers through Sieve, and Mara is going to set up a map shop. Saying their goodbye’s, the remaining group is left to wonder if they will ever see River again. Moonbeam is especially devastated. Laiduin and Galaren come back and the group plus the mayor meet with Jorren to come to an agreement. Laiduin negotiates a peace where Jorren will mark trees that can be cut and will reincarnate the homesteaders. John Homesteader comes back as a Gnome, Jane as a Dwarf, Billy as a Human, and little Sally as a Troglodyte. The party considers this a win and moves on.
Making their way to Sieve, the party is set upon by a Bullete. Thalchi wades in and with one mighty blow, get behind the fin and snaps its spine. Moonbeam and Loren stay with the carcass cutting it up as Laiduin and Thalchi head on the Sieve for a wagon. Reunited the next day, the group enters Sieve and sells off the meat, skin, teeth and claws. Safe at the Ingrown Toenail, the group begins a shopping trip through Sieve and into the Bazaar.
