The party reached Srilkind with no further trouble from fish demons or anything else. There was a brief interaction with Eskel's family, in which Matthew received a doll from Eskel's younger sister Tyra, and then the party made for The Hooded Crow, and inn in the small village.
At The Hooded Crow, the party overheard an unlike tale of bear wrestling from a young girl trying to earn a silver for her meal. Baldhart approached the girl and introduced herself. The talkative young girl introduced herself as Burnbright and struck up a fast friendship with Baldhart.
Shortly afterward, Nodrick and Aliron introduced themselves to the group.
