Returning to the Crossroads, the party decides to get Gorim Halfblood raised before seeing Miles Howl. The cost, is almost every scrap of treasure they have acquired thus far. His negative levels need to be dealt with on top of the raise dead, and it drains the coffers of treasure they obtained within the ruins.
Seeing they had little left, they speak with Miles Howl. They offer to be his agents when they are more experienced. They hand over the expensive ancient dragon holy text, and then part ways. Tannim somehow convinces the party to let him keep the Vis Dragonheart they had found earlier.
The party rests in town for a few weeks while Gorim receives his restorations. Some discussions at the inn lead them to deciding to investigate the trade route disruption on the road to Salt.
This was a short session to work out some logistics.
