The story so far:
Our heroes began the day in an inn, when Oakenstaff was ambushed by a mysterious figure in an alley. After fighting them off, the figure revealed that they were Aelyn Vex of the Scarlet Brotherhood and that Genji had been summoned to the Bear Temple. They went to the temple and learned of the illusory terrain that was used to hide it. They then met Grandmaster Shinichi-Obu over a tea ceremony, one of the leaders of the Brotherhood. During the night, Aelyn was captured and her mind was corrupted, but the party found her, and after fighting off some golems, restored her mind, killing a Cult member that was there, the hideous Carceri Ravel.
The next morn, as her fate was being decided, the massive form of Rashamon, the bear spirit, broke through the roof of the temple. The massive, normally benevolent figure was now covered in maggots, corrupted. They tried to fight him, but it became apparent that they could not win. Finally, Grandmaster Shinichi-Obu broke the spirit seal, killing Rashamon instantly. Convinced of the threat Ghül posed, the Grandmaster resolved to try and convince the Brotherhood to aid the Order of Magus in their battle against it.
After entrusting the scrolls of illusory terrain to the party, the Grandmaster and Aelyn went to the Tiger Temple, in hopes of getting their help to fight the Cult. A monk from the Bear Temple joined their party, calling himself Warrior of the Night.
They journeyed forth to Mahudu, the city Oakenstaff hailed from and also the base of the Order. As journeyed there, encountering some giant froges on the way, one of which Genji tamed. They also encountered a vine golem, but before fighting it, Shilling managed to acquire its phylactery, and thereby control it.
They soon came upon a small hut, in which Carceri had reformed in a straw body, and were trapped by her. She then revealed that Shilling was actually Justicar Starvoss, a Justicar for the Order of Magus, and not a peddler as they all assumed. Genji managed to light the place on fire, however, and they escaped as Carceri and her bodies burned.
They then continued their journey to the city.
