Various Places – Springtime

Jada goes down to see Rithaign Mining Co. in regards to the trade deal, agreements were made, to ship out a bit earlier, moving on the Tuesday potentially however they will send word when it’s ready to go.
Sa’di goes out to find Marie amongst the chaos to bring her back into the shop.
Rumours around the city, the army were in on it and various issues are arising from this problem.
A couple of days are spent recouperating in the basement, checking on things for the trade deal
Sa’di goes to see Leisette, to introduce herself.
Sam shows up at the shop, to talk to Jada, asking for a job to bolster his pension.
Nentarsche also pops by to talk to Jada, bringing a bottle of wine, Jada managed to completely miss the point needing the push to invite him to drink with us, toasting to the mission ahead.
A runner comes along to let the group know the coal shipment is ready. Jada goes down to the Mining Co. to get going, incoming on an argument, Karl and Eric are both there and a very regal gentleman, Alsidees (Orchids), trying to take the contract from Trade Winds.
Karl having packed his bags gets himself ready to leave, Eric asks for Jada to keep him safe along the way.
Leaving the city the group decides on the mountain pass, heading out of the city without much of a problem. a few days pass before the group need to leave the road taking the more farm tracks to go over the mountains.
Whilst moving across the mountains, the group pass a full regiment of army soldiers, fully geared heading to Rithaign.
Along one of the roads, the group encounter a caravan with a broken wheel, Reinholdt approaches to help fix it. Making camp for the evening the group trade information about the roads, and the cities. The city we’re heading too had a crisis surge over the winter, few fatalities etc.
More days pass, rain has started, roads get worse up in the mountains. Karl adn Jada go ahead to scout whilst Reinholdt and co. secure the coal, the group move throught the pass. At night the group set up camp, the animals seem skittish and as night fully sets in the wolves start howling, it continues throughout the night, a pack are clearly hunting.
More days pass, slow going through the mountain, however no major incidents. Coming out of the mountains and meeting up with the trade roads. Finding the first Inn the group take a day to rest and recouperate.
The trip is fairly straightforward passing through Welvage and taking a barge pretty much up to the doomholds.
On route betwween the barge and the doomholds, the group pass through Glowermoor and onto the forested roads, on route they run into a noble and his peasant who wouldn’t allow trade into Saltridge, the group agree to be taken back to the main city
Whilst the group are being watched at night, church bells ring at intermittent times, both Sa’di and Tyll decide to have a look what’s going on, finding their way to an open square near a church, one of the only lit places outside within the city, the church doors are open but a port cutlass is down. The commotion seems to be around a murder, the guy has been gutted and posed.
They wander through the town, spotting sets of guards of at least 10, the churches are all lit and defensible locations.
On travelling out of the country, the road is set so that each night the group reach a cabin, heavily fortified and guarded.
Eventually the group are led across the border.
On arrival to Saltridge the group are briefly stopped but given directions, to the main city, the coal is delivered and the group go to deliver the box of gems.
Whilst in Saltridge Jada and Reinholdt start set up for an Engineers shop.
