We plan to follow up on the information obtained from Arysoun. Our intention is to gather the materials necessary to convert the cursed item into a weapon which can be safely (for us) used against the orcs, as Nathan requested. Anyone able to help is asked to meet at the west gate of Trinsic at 8pm [UK time]. It is important that we get this sorted as soon as possible so that we can turn our attention back to Arysoun himself and find a way to deal with him and his plagues.
