Pregame Prep This session starts out on the 26th of Deepwinter (January), 1 day after returning with the dragon hordes treasure. The party will travel using phantom steed to Suzail.
MarcusLor is selling a +3 Long Sword to the Party Treasury for 14,400 gp.
Morthrou will be taing all the mundane items secured after the decisive battle and bring them to Arabel for sale when the weather clears up (Tarsakh). The party thinks this should net them 13,189 gp for the party treasury. Zanakin’s party treasury sheet has the rest of the items won from the battle (after splitting the treasure amongst all parties involved).
Zanakin has 11 days left of training to make 1st level fighter, and is looking to train a two new feats. Corenia will train Zanakin in Improved Initiative. A trainer will need to be found for Storm Bolt.
Maythor will continue to pre-train 12th level fighter.
Maythor, Zanakin, Devrille, Dorteck, and Corenia equip themselves for winter travel to Suzail. They plan on staying in MarcusLor’s Keep for the duration of their stay. Meanwhile, MarcusLor, Dorteck, and many of the others at the dragon and humanoid battle will continue to ensure Castle Blade is secure. MarcusLor will return with what is left of his cavalry shortly after Maythor and Zanakin leave.
Zanakin summons 4 phantom steeds, and the party moves across the winterlands towards Suzail. With a stop in Arabel, they figure the trip will take 5 days.
Over the next 5 days, no noteworthy encounters take place.

It is at this party that King Azoun IV announces MarcusLor and Alusair are to be married at a later time. It is also during the celebration a ceremony is held to award Maythor and Zanakin the Honor of the Dragon Heart.
