Got back to town, did some kingdom-building. We played out the three months that we were away, the DM generously not applying the “being away” penalties (we were away due to a side-quest that Dave added to the game). Melanae spent some cash on a nice little villa for herself, but the kingdom is big enough now that cash is really not a problem.
Scott’s new character was introduced to the game. And we got an intro to the next module, but we really had to call the night early.
