It wasn’t surprising that the defeat of Vhiski led to uncovering another Sandpoint menace: Aliver “Pillbug” Podiker. Seelah and Seoni agreed they couldn’t leave this villain on the loose but knew time was of the essence. They agreed to split up. Seelah along with her standard bearer Starla would see what information they could gather at the city gate, while Seoni would take her acolyte Amy and Trevin the troubadour to canvas the town square.

Upon arriving at the city gate, Seelah met a sage.

“Excuse me, wise one, might I ask you a few questions?”

The woman looked at Seelah for a moment. “My dear, I don’t believe you know the real questions you wish to ask.” And with that, she walked away.

Seelah stared after the sage for several moments a bit baffled by what just happened.

“What should we be looking for?” Amy asked, her eyes roaming the various sights in the town square.

“Oh, something like that, maybe?” Trevin said, pointing to a disembodied form.

The ghost had appeared so suddenly, no one else had noticed it yet. Seoni raced forward in order to defeat the ghost before it caused a panic. Thankfully she’d readied her force missile spell that morning, but an extra boost wouldn’t hurt.

“Amy,” she said, holding out her hand.

Without hesitation, her acolyte took her hand, lending what strength she could. It turned out to be more than enough. The ghost vanished as quickly and quietly as it had appeared, and Seoni even had enough power left over to recharge her spell. She looked down at Amy.

“She still has some learning to do, doesn’t she?” Trevin asked.

Seoni nodded. “She is only an acolyte, after all. She’ll learn how much energy to give in time.”

Thankfully there was an inn nearby where they could leave Amy while they continued their search.
