During the battle Jasper got confused, and kept trying to attack Bjertha. Maruca nearly died, failing two death saves before we finished off the armor and healed her. After the battle, we took a short rest and explored the area. We found about 600 gp worth of muddy gold trinkets. Note, the armor was an Invisible Stalker, and the helmet was a Wisp. We received 550 xp for the encounter.
Our guide Jasper led us to a small island, on which sat a small hut. We greeted the owner of the hut, Maroux the swamp witch. She was an old half-orc with one eye glazed over. We asked her for any information she could give us about the Lady's Light. She offered to help us, but gave us a task first. She was in the mood to make some soup, and for that she needed some seaweed called Kelpie's Hair. She told us to go to a nearby shipwreck, where the seaweed grew in abundance. Being genre savvy, we used a scroll of Water Breathing before attempting the deed.
We went back to Maroux's hut and had some stew. While Bjertha found it to be quite tasty, Slancio and Shemus had trouble keeping it down. We stayed the night, and Maroux drew us a crude map, and gave us some info about the Lady's Light. Apparently some knights came through recently, led by a woman named Oriana. They were also on a mission to loot the lighthouse. They took advantage of the rivalry between the local bullywugs and trogs, pitting them against each other and using them to take control the lighthouse. Maroux doesn't know how that turned out, so who knows if what we'll face once inside.
The name dropping didn't work. As we reached they bullywug huts, we tried to communicate with them but just got blank stares. They regarded us warily as we walked the long way around their village, blocking entry but taking no hostile actions. We gave the village a wide berth and kept going until we reached a cave.
After the fight we looked at the stones they'd been protecting, and found a lot of copper, silver, gold, bloodstones, agates, garnets, and a platinum necklace. This fight netted us 33 xp. We ended the session there.
