Aurelia Lightseeker, Cleric of Pelor, has been traveling for some time healing the sick and helping out at Temples of Pelor in need or being built. She stops for dinner at a crossroads tavern and encounters a group of people who seem travel weary. It is obvious that some are hiding their true natures, but being a half-elf she feels no need to call them out on it. She knows the torment of prejudice and has no reason to out someone trying to get a meal.
A couple of cloaked figures arrive and Aurelia is a bit more shocked at seeing a dark elf in hiding. The two approach the first group and it seems a serious discussion follows. The dark elf and friend step away so the party can confer and Aurelia listens to the tale of how they are considering taking on a group of seasoned warrior bandits who have stolen payment that was meant for them. The bandits have already killed many and these two were the only ones left of their group, they have no intention of going back to face the bandits themselves. It’s up to the party to find and retrieve the stolen goods.
Aurelia barely hesitates before offering to accompany them, she can’t let them go off into such peril with no aid and no visible healer in their party. Helping them survive to get their just payment is the right thing to do. The party accepts her offer of aid and they journey towards Hommlet.
