Day 140

The adventurers go to Benedict and explain what happened during the auction, HHH does the explaining... We tell him who the other bidders were, including Andre and Lady Valera.

Benedict says "Sorry to hear that, Andre will probably use it to his own advantage, Andre does not want the piece for himself, just wants control of something powerful".

HHH suggests that the adventurers trail Andre, Nuria suggests that we offer or trade something for the Rod piece, discussing different options...  The adventurers should have a sit-down with Andre...

Agrona says that our options are limited... consensus is we should try to talk to Andre for the 4th piece of the Rod.

Meanwhile, PW stays behind Andre about 2 blocks, trying to tail him successfully. He heads to the Stallion when he loses Andre's trail, waiting for Andre to show up. Gregory shows up instead. Goes up to the bar and offers him a drink, discusses his apprenticeship, and Gregory agrees to train him as a Shadowdancer. Finishes his drink, thanks Gregory, and heads out to the Church.

PW reaches the group, tells the adventurers of his progress with Gregory since he couldn't see Andre, or talk to him.  Now all the adventurers are at the Church with Benedict.  The rest of the group updates PW on what was discussed with Benedict...

Agrona asks Benedict if they could find out where the other pieces are while we are going to attempt to get the 4th piece.

Nuria tries to hold person Agrona with the Rod saying the command word: "Freeze, freeze, freeze".

Xanaphia asks Benedict asking where to purchase focus on 500gp for Atonement spell.

Agrona casts Wall of Stone to protect himself from the adventurers.

HHH moves and summons Henrietta.

Nuria dispels Agrona's Wall of Stone spell.

Meanwhile, Xana asks Benedict where she can focus her 500 gp for the Atonement spell. Benedict tells her that one of his accolyte's will bring the focus momentarily, 10-15 mins.

Agrona casts an Air Walk spell and tries to walk out the webbing. He doesn't succeed the first time.

HHH hit Agrona with a crossbow bolt for 1 hit point of damage.

Nuria tries to cast Charm Person spell on Agrona, and Agrona succeeds in deflecting it.

Xana's brown bear attacks Agrona from behind and isn't able to.

Everyone is held in place except Nuria.

Belgarath walks in and asks Nuria: "what have you become?". Nuria explains the situation and Belgarath tells him: "You have so much more to learn" and takes Agrona to the Tower.

The adventurers explain to Benedict why we did what we did regarding Agrona while we're cleaning up the mess in the hall.  We also apologize profusely for the situation getting out of hand to the extent that it did.

The adventurers, minus Agrona, go to the Mage's Guild to talk to Belgarath. One of the sorcerers tells the adventurers that Belgarath isn't to be disturbed.

The adventurers go to the Order of the Phoenix with HHH to rest for the night.

Day 141

Nuria excuses herself during the night, and comes back later with Agrona.

Nuria explains to the adventurers that she was summoned by Belgarath and that Agrona is fine and to welcome him back to the group with no worries from him. Belgarath said that nothing has really changed with Agrona, even though HHH couldn't detect anything from him.

Go back to see Belgarath to tell him that we're going to see Andre to discuss the 4th piece of the Rod. Belgarath tells them to leave the Rod pieces with him for safekeeping.

The adventurers go seek an audience with Andre at the Black Stallion about the 4th piece. Gregory isn't there but we leave a message with the bartender seeking an audience with Andre. PW gives the bartender 10 gp for the message.

They decide to shop for upgrades for weaponry and armour while they're waiting for Andre's answer to our request.

Agrona goes to talk to Benedict regarding the preceding day's saga, says that he's still a cleric of Heironeous and asked about the Rod parts (divinations).  Benedict says that they have divinations on two pieces of the Rod, not just the 5th piece, but it could be any of the remaining pieces.

Meanwhile, HHH talked to Gareth regarding the current situation and gave him a momento and received a scale of Bronze Dragon.  HHH thanks him profusely and leaves.

Benedict tells us that one has been divined into the depths of the earth, very far from here, rumoured to be in the Underdark.  It can be reached by the Barrier Peaks.  The other piece has been divined near the Hell Furneces Mountains.  Barrier Peaks is a month away, and Hell Furneces is a month and a half away.

Agrona asks where we should head first. Benedict tells us to head to the Barrier Peaks first before we head to Hell Furneces.

PW goes to the Black Stallion to find out if Gregory is there. He is not around.

Nuria tries to research HHH's dragon scale. Finds nothing of interest.

Day 145

The bartender has a note for PW to meet Andre at the farm/ranch, alone at dusk that same day. PW goes up to the front door, knocks, a errand boy answers and says that he should go to the stables.

Andre is there brushing his horses. "Come in PW, you wanted to see me?"
"I did, you have the 4th piece of the Rod, and as you know, we are on a quest for all Seven pieces, we were wondering if we could offer you anything in exchange?"
"I have received very generous offers, so I doubt you can match them".
"I understand that..."
"You understand nothing" says Andre.
Again PW tries to discuss the exchange and Andre waves him off saying: "If something arises, I will make sure to notify you".
PW thanks him and returns to the adventurers and tells them what transpired.

The 4th Piece of the Rod of Seven Parts is no longer in Greyhawk, after Nuria gets the other 3 pieces back from Benedict and uses them to determine if the piece is still in the area.
