  • bandit kingdoms will ask for an assassination among their southern neighbors (in Dimre by the forest or Johrase, directly south (, but if the party suggests it, around 14 castings of plant growth per year is a fair trade (although they'd like closer to 30).
  • Finish magic item cost rules

  • Later, to use druid side paths, a korred guardian will want to dance with the party to let them pass, having heard of their skills.

Durgeddin or his soul has been trapped, and someone is trying to use him to forge a world-threatening weapon. Maybe orc-affiliated? orcs would remember durgeddin, and like fury. if the party has helped elves in the past, maybe there's a way they can get correlon's help to take out gruumsh's other eye? Durgeddin could be a horned devil (maybe improved), ruling an army of bearded dveils (appropriate), with subisidiary other creatures like imps, merregons, spined devils, etc. Things that use weapons.

Has she stirred something up that is now going to be a problem?
  • set up reverse links from wiki pages
  • Joramy, volcano goddess might get stirred up?
