…plagued by visions and Nausea, Garridan and Damien manage to work out the tome in the brothers house is related to a cult, possibly of one of the fallen. It contains various rituals many to do with binding and one known as ‘The Convergence’. Thinking they now know what to do the party is ready to try and break the binding circle around the altar and what they suspect is a bound Galeb Guardian. Ivellious first insists they investigate the well at the centre of Ringfield as he believes there may be an item of power or great magic left by Zacharias Leonhardt to help defend the town. No item is found but the waters of the well are revealed to have healing and restorative properties. Taking some of this Holy water the group head down to the cavern. In a tense couple of minutes they break the circle of blood cleansing it with the holy water and everyone freezes as the Galebs fists raise up, only to breath a sigh of relief to as it smashes the Ramshead desecration then rolls off towards the pentagram. The party follow and see the Guardian futilely trying to destroy the pentagram, using more holy water they cleanse the pentagram. Within seconds the alarm bell above the gates begins to toll, rushing up the passage way the party arrives at the gate as it is smashed open by an Ankheg.

The party rests for a few days and then heads on towards the next town, their new elf companion Narris in tow. It takes several days to reach Frampt, the town at the base of High Froth Mountain and several hours short of town the group encounter a cloaked old man. He tries to warn the party away as the town has fallen to disease before his hood falls away to reveal a disease riddled corpse with a millipede wrapped round its head buried in the eye socket. The corpse vomits bile and guts on Corran and several more millipedes appear from the roadside, battling a foul stench the creatures are swiftly dispatched and some magical assessment reveals the man had practically every disease known, including demon sickness. The party decides to press on rather than avoiding the town, as if it is a pit of disease it must be prevented from starting a new plague….
