The team escaped from Xitaqa and sped back toward Sukiskyn.  The first evening, Levi noticed they were being watched by the centaur far in the distance.  The second evening, they arrived at Misha’s ferry.  There they encountered Misha’s fearsome cave bear!  Arminious bravely went up and fed the bear, gaining a measure of trust.  Grozzadeth also fed the bear and then began playfully wrestling with it.  Before long, the bear was happily romping around with the party… until Garadal approached.  The bear remembered Garadal as one of the party members who fought against it weeks ago!  Gradually, they calmed the bear down and followed it into the woods.  It led them to Misha’s body.  Levi went over and slipped her coin purse into his own while examining the body.  He determined she had died of arrow wounds, but it had taken a while.  She had tried to bandage herself but had eventually died of her injuries.  The team realized there is a good chance they could have saved her life a month ago when they first encountered the bear.  Arminious and Valor dug a grave, and the priest performed a traditional Traladaran burial rite using a makeshift thurible.  The team then entered Misha’s home and realized it had been open to the weather and animals, so it was in much worse condition than when they were last here.  Grozzadeth fashioned a scarf for the bear out of Misha’s blanket. 

The next day, the team departed for Sukiskyn.  They tried to convince the bear to follow, but it would not leave Misha’s grave.  Once at Sukiskyn, Pyotr threw a great feast in honor of their success in rescuing Stephan!  He gifted each of them with a valuable gem for their help.  After the meal, Stephan and the party placed the silver needle and golden thread on the tapestry, and it quickly stitched a map!  They stared at it a while and tried to reconcile it with landmarks they knew.  They decided it led to a location somewhere in the mountains north of Threshold.

With Stephan and Pyotr, they developed a plan for their next steps.  They would take the 24 white horses to Rifllian like originally planned and sell the horses to the elves.  Taras and Stephan would accompany them.  Taras would then return with half the money for the Sukiskyn residents.  Stephan would continue on with the party.  The group would avoid Kelvin in case Golthar had spies looking for them.  Instead, they would utilize a ferry operated by gnomes to stay further afield.  After selling the horses, they would then travel north to Threshold and then into the mountains. 

The group set out to Misha’s ferry once again. As they arrived, they found Iron Ring slavers trying to capture the bear!
